Increase My Faith

Lord,

You are God,

my Savior, Deliverer, and Healer,

my Provider, Refuge, and Shelter.

I have everything I need in you.

I believe,

so help my unbelief!

Increase faith in my heart,

open my eyes

to your dunamis power,

your supernatural ways,

signs, miracles, and wonders

that confirm your Word,

and proclaim your love,

because you are good!

Give me great faith

to freely surrender all,

opening my hands

and letting go of my paltry trinkets,

trusting to receive all that I need,

eternal treasures,

making my soul rich,

abiding in you.

Let me see you and know you rightly,

and remove all hesitation,

that I may love you boldly, joyfully,

delighting all my days in you.

Amen.

Faithful Witness

Lord,

I pray for a soft heart,

a humble, teachable spirit,

true humility,

eyes to see,

ears to hear

through your Spirit.

Help me to walk with you,

in the rhythm of your heartbeat,

guided by your Spirit,

and illuminate the path before me,

every step,

every choice,

with your Word,

building a life

of righteous choices,

moral integrity,

goodness, faith, and loving kindness,

to leave a legacy

of your Name and glory.

Let me be a faithful witness

of my beautiful Lord.

You alone are worthy!

Amen.

Heart’s Desires

Lord,

you know my heart,

better than I know myself.

I trust you,

and put myself into your hands.

Draw out,

bless,

anoint the desires

you’ve placed in me

as I look to you.

Breathe upon them,

give them life

and wings through my hands and feet.

Grow me, mature me

into the fullness of who you’ve called me to be.

Give me vision,

fill me with hope

of your call for my life.

Enable me by the power of your Spirit,

to hear and obey,

and worship you with all that I am

through this life you’ve given me.

I praise you and bless your precious Name.

Amen.

Leaving The Past Behind

Lord,

Thank you that my life is in your hands.

I can shake off the burdens of my past,

the regrets and failures,

trusting you will work all things for my good,

and reveal to me the treasures hidden in darkness.

I praise you for your wisdom, discernment,

and counsel dispensed into my spirit,

your molding, pruning, and stretching;

forging me in your continuous flame of love

as I am being created in your image.

I forget what is behind,

you clear my vision for what lies ahead.

No more shadows looming in the future,

or expectations and assumptions I should fulfill,

but surrendered and free, I look to you today,

in this moment,

the gift of your presence with me,

let me run with you.

I bless you Lord.

Amen.

Remembering Queen Esther

Lord,

I praise your for your hand

in and through Esther’s story.

I praise you for resounding victory

through her life,

your absolute care and provision for your people.

You took an orphan,

a hated minority,

one caught in the pressures and confusion

of idolatry, societal pressures,

envy, competition, and secrecy,

and made her a victor for your glory.

I praise you for your spirit within her,

deliverance from her trauma and loss,

the faith and boldness you granted her,

the words you placed in her mouth,

and the courage you gave her to act and speak.

I praise you for your mighty deliverance

of the Jewish people,

again and again,

your are faithful forevermore.

Let me be like Esther,

entrusting myself in your hands,

offering my identity, life, and circumstances

as a willing sacrifice in love

to be used by you,

and give you all the glory.

I bless your Name.

Amen.

Armor Of God

Lord,

Strengthen me in you,

let me be empowered

knowing your Spirit dwells within me.

Teach me, show me, help me

to put on and stand in the full armor of God.

When the darkness presses in,

and the schemes, wiles, and deceits of the evil one.

Grant me success and victory,

standing firm with an overcoming spirit,

immovable and absolutely ready,

filled with power, love, and a sound mind.

Grant me an upright heart as my breastplate,

truth, courage, and integrity to bind around my waist,

feet quick to run with the good news,

hoisting up a shield of faith,

to extinguish the fiery arrows of the enemy.

Let me put on the helmet of salvation

wield the sword of your Spirit,

thinking upon your beautiful works,

testifying of your Truth.

Fill me with a spirit of prayer,

alert, active, discerning, persevering,

passionate in my requests,

so that your presence may be with me,

your power at work all around,

and that heaven may come upon earth.

I praise you and bless you Lord.

Amen.

Let Me Be Bold

Lord,

Give me courage to speak

Truth prompted by your Spirit,

shedding off people pleasing,

compromising my soul to be liked,

bowing to the world,

and calling it love,

when I’ve only avoided my own cowardice and discomfort.

Please forgive me for shrinking back,

longing more for the praise of man,

their approval and acceptance,

when it lasts for only a moment,

and that is my only paltry reward.

Forgive me when I’ve spoken in a religious spirit

in the name of boldness,

justifying my harsh pride and self righteousness.

I throw myself at your mercy,

please don’t let me be deceived,

overwhelmed, complacent, legalistic,

taking the easy way out because I can…

all the way to hell.

You have conquered sin and death,

given me eternal life,

let me live like I believe it.

Help me to love what you love,

hate what you hate,

and to be loyal, devoted to you,

as you have given all of yourself to me,

and do so again and again.

Let this life be surrendered,

laid down, all for your glory Lord.

I bless you.

Amen.

Mercy And Strength

Lord,

Thank you for your grace,

your understanding, comfort, encouragement

in the midst of my failures and weakness.

Thank you that your voice never accuses,

nor condemns,

but draws close, strengthens, empowers,

so that I rejoice in your goodness,

your sweet kindness once again.

Fill me with faith again,

grant me strength,

give me vision and hope,

help me to persevere and be diligent,

and let me be bold and courageous

in your directives,

trusting you are with me,

your Spirit enabling and resuscitating

fresh power, ability, and skill

to fulfill your purposes for your glory.

I praise you and bless you Lord.

Amen.

Follow Him

Lord,

I hear your Voice saying,

“Follow Me.”

Grant me the grace to come

without hesitation,

forgetting what is behind

and pressing on towards the goal

of your heavenward call before me.

I praise you for the mustard seed of faith,

thank you for strengthening me as I step out,

parting the sea of chaos and confusion,

allowing me to step on dry land,

and hiding me under your talit.

I’m safe and secure with you,

never let me go,

hold onto me

when my strength fails,

and uphold me

to walk in your ways

every step of the way

knowing your staff guards me

and your rod keeps me close.

I love you Lord.

Amen.

Faith And Courage

Lord,

thank you that you are with me

as I apply faith to my feet,

stepping into the unknown.

You are my Good Shepherd

who leads, guides, and counsels,

your Spirit already has gone forth

to prepare the way,

you are the Aleph and the Tav

knowing all beginnings and the end.

So I capture the arrows of fear, anxiety, and unbelief

casting them upon you,

and stand upon your Word and Rhema,

you’ve called and I will follow.

You’ve saved me from sin and death,

molding me into a new creation

and set apart to fulfill your purposes,

with you,

glorifying your Name.

You keep my foot from stumbling,

you will not let me put to shame,

you open doors no man can shut,

you shut doors no man can open.

You have plans to prosper me,

not to harm me,

plans to give me a hope and a future.

I will trust in your goodness,

stepping out to answer your call,

intent on obedience,

entrusting the rest to you.

Grant me boldness, courage, and faith

knowing you are with me,

you desire success for me,

and I have no lack in you.

I bless you Lord.

Amen.
