Help Me To Trust

Lord,

I keep my gaze upon you,

even as my thoughts spin

and my heart races,

I look towards you.

Enter into my overwhelm,

remind me that it’s not on me

to have it all figured out,

to be perfect,

and to do it all myself.

Thank you that I’m a new creation,

infused with your Spirit,

made one with you,

and that all my limitations

are an invitation

to depend on the fullness of your grace,

your divine resources, your Spirit,

and your love.

Calm my soul Lord,

give me your peace and comfort yet again,

let me enter into deep communion with you

as I recount your faithfulness and goodness.

Cleanse me with hope,

grant me greater faith and vision,

and give me the diligence,

the persistence to obey in the little things,

relinquishing my expectations,

letting go of control of the future,

the outcomes,

my own will,

to trust wholly and fully in you.

I bless you Lord.

Amen.

Close

Lord,

thank you that you’re with me,

right by my side,

holding my hand,

walking, leading, guiding me,

you are my Good Shepherd.

Even as the storms rage around me,

I’ll keep myself here

in your presence and love,

keeping my eyes fixed on you,

I shall not fear,

and I will trust you,

letting your rod pull me closer,

your staff defeat my enemies,

you are with me

through the fire, deep waters,

the mountains and valleys,

you will not allow my feet to stumble.

Glorify your name through me Lord

no matter what I am going through,

help me to thank you,

praise you,

love you,

bless you.

You are my God,

and I know you are faitful.

I worship you.

Amen.

Hope In The New

Abba,

thank you for seasons passed,

your love that called,

your hand that carried me,

your wisdom that brought forth gold

from all of life being lived,

the hard, the painful, and the good,

your power restores, redeems all things.

Because of you,

I cherish hope for what’s in store.

In between,

yesterday and tomorrow,

here and now,

you are with me,

in every step

my past being redeemed,

my future being built,

on the sure foundations of your love,

mercy, and grace.

I embrace another new beginning,

reminded of your grace

that makes all things new,

again and every moment,

and I move forward boldly

because you are with me,

you are my Lord and my God,

and those who wait upon you,

will never be put to shame.

I bless you Lord.

Amen.

Protected

Lord,

I praise you for your love,

that I am loved by you,

it’s all that matters.

Chaos and turmoil

erupt around me,

my enemies speak against me,

but you uphold me

with your right hand,

you part the Red Sea

and my feet walk upon solid ground,

you hide me under your talit,

you keep me in your shadow,

you deflect the flaming arrows

returning it back on my enemies’ heads.

Your love strengthens my heart,

fills me with courage,

and I walk with my head held high,

knowing the Conquering Lion,

my Messiah and King

has me,

is for me, not against me,

delivering me from all my accusers,

rebuking my enemy,

declaring your claim over my life,

proclaiming my identity,

that I am your beloved,

I am yours

and you are mine.

Lord of Hosts,

my Refuge, my Strength,

I bless you!

Amen.

In His Hand

Abba,

thank you that you are for me,

you are with me,

you arise on my defense,

you are my avenger.

Let me stand firm in your love,

in faith in what your Son has done,

covering and cleansing me,

making me right before you.

I cast myself into your care.

I ask for your hedge of protection,

your fire wall to surround me,

your hand to cover me,

your talit to hide me.

Rebuke the enemy,

its cloud of accusations,

let the truth of the cross,

the blood of Yeshua

overcome every arrow

and speak a better word.

Release your angelic protection,

that my feet may not stumble,

and I would not shrink back from your call to follow you.

In your Son, I’m beloved,

and have everything I need to do your will.

Help me to walk firmly, unhesitating

in the paths you lead me on,

knowing you provide, you enable,

you empower, you give without reserve

all that I need,

your love and support overabounding,

your grace sufficient,

let me be faithful to you,

that I would fulfill your purpose

in my generation,

not by my strength,

but leaning in, depending on you,

and may you receive all the glory!

May heaven resound with my testimonies

of you on this side and into all eternity.

I praise you!

Amen.

Father’s Heart

Abba,

thank you for your words of life,

your strength, comfort, and encouragement.

Thank you for you still, small,

ever present voice,

deep as the ocean swells,

buoying my heart up

in the midst of the storms

and rain of accusations.

I still my heart to hear you,

to wrap my heart around your words alone.

Thank you that in Messiah,

I am enough,

I have everything I need in you,

and that your father’s heart

is proud of your daughter

where I can only see failure and regret.

You only ever beckon me forward,

to press in to your promises,

leaning into your love,

your leading and grace,

through the dark resistant clouds,

your love,

your presence with me

always makes a way.

You are my eternal Father,

let me only believe more

in the riches of your love, mercy, and grace.

I love you Abba.

Amen.

Save Me

Lord,

I ask for your protection,

wrap me in your wings,

hide me under your shadow,

cover me and keep me.

Rebuke my enemies,

send confusion and chaos their way,

frustrate their malicious efforts,

and clear my path

that I will move forward boldly,

unhindered with sure footing.

Rise up and defend me,

avenge me because I’m your own.

Keep my heart and my mind,

focus my gaze on you,

help me to pray for my enemies,

blessing them,

give me an unoffended heart,

trusting in your word,

believing you see me,

your mercy already extended

meeting my cries.

Deepen my faith,

and let me cling to you

and stand firm,

putting all my hope in you.

I praise you Lord

for your salvation and deliverance!

Amen.

God Who Sustains

Lord,

thank you for the space of your grace,

your presence, your breath

pushing back

where the world pushes and presses in.

Thank you that you are closer to me

than my own breath,

your presence within

reigns over the universe,

holding it together,

your grace is expansive,

your purposes deep,

your love infiltrates all,

and I surrender again to you,

trusting you with all my heart,

not leaning on my own understanding,

acknowledging you in all my ways,

believing you will make straight my paths.

Please encourage my heart,

send vision, motivation, strength my way,

let me remember you are with me,

and crush discouragement and frustration

under my heel,

moving forward where you call,

bold and courageous.

I praise you for your love,

your perfect leadership,

may I continue my journey faithfully with you,

and finish strong,

running this well by your grace.

Thank you and I praise you Lord.

Amen.

Walk With God

Lord,

let me be face to face with you

throughout the day,

sharing my thoughts,

baring my heart,

not holding back

coming honestly,

vulnerable and open

before you.

I need you Lord…

so easy for me to say,

yet difficult to bend my knee and do,

humbling for my pride and independence.

Where I’m on autopilot,

depending on my own strength

please gently remind me of your presence,

that you’re with me,

willing and ready to teach me, train me,

show me, guide me, help me once again,

in better, wiser ways than my own.

Let my heart be open to your instruction,

wrapping around your wisdom and counsel,

inviting your strength and power

leaning on you,

so that I walk in your ways,

and am blessed.

Show me how to talk with you,

partner with you,

do life with you,

and let the distractions melt away,

so that I have dove’s eyes before you.

You and me Lord,

please help me to run this race,

and finish well,

and receive your full inheritance in me.

You are splendid, beautiful, and true,

let my life faithfully reflect your worthiness.

Amen.
