Gracious Father

Father,

I bless you for revealing yourself to me,

giving me your Son,

drawing me, opening my eyes

by your Holy Spirit,

to see what you have done,

loving this wretch into you holy arms,

buying my soul

at the price of your Son’s blood.

Thank you Father

for the blood of the Lamb

who was slain for me.

Increase my faith Father,

stretch the edges,

push out the boundaries,

give me clear vision,

to truly see you and know you,

that I may love you,

rejoice,

and worship you rightly.

I praise you and thank you,

loving, merciful God,

you are a good, good Father.

Amen.

God’s Face

God,

I praise you for your Son,

Lamb of God,

who came to take away the sins of the world.

I thank you for cleansing me of all my sins,

and for tabernacling within me,

making the way to see your beautiful face.

In faith I receive your Son,

I believe all that He has done,

dying for my sins,

taking my punishment upon His frame,

resurrecting into overcoming life,

giving life abundant and eternal,

and I bless you for your mercy,

your lovingkindness and goodness.

I eat of the Bread,

thank you that you desire relationship with me,

drawing me to your table,

enjoying sweet fellowship,

intimacy with you.

As I set my heart, my mind, my way upon you,

looking upon the kindness, tenderness, and compassion

of your holy Face,

let your face shine upon me,

be gracious to me,

let the light of your countenance be upon me,

and grant me your peace.

I bless you Lord.

Amen.

Lamb Of God

Lamb of God,

you came down,

innocent, good, holy, pure,

eternal One in fragile skin,

sacrificing your life

for the world,

for me.

Thank you for your blood,

that covers all my sins,

cleansing me,

washing me,

making me new,

delivering me from deserved wrath,

and an eternity in hell,

and giving me new life,

undeserved.

Thank you for the great exchange,

your beautiful life,

holy and pure within me.

I bless you Lord

for all that you have done,

you alone are God,

God of love, merciful kindness,

I worship you in your goodness and grace,

bless your Name.

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.

I Praise You Lord

Lord,

I worship you.

Son of God,

Son of man

made of skin, bone, and flesh,

yet filled with Holy Spirit,

stepping into time

making eternity known,

your Word, sacrifice, death, and resurrection.

your love, mercy, and grace,

Your presence is life,

you save and deliver,

you redeem and resurrect,

your wisdom is from above,

all your ways perfect and good.

There’s none like you,

holy, beautiful, unknowable God,

who has pursued and grasped my heart,

loved me into surrender,

and resurrected my life.

You alone are Lord,

King of kings,

the one true God.

and I praise you alone Lord,

Amen.

Pursuing The Lord

Lord,

let me know you rightly,

let me see you clearly,

casting aside my perceived gains and merits

for your sake,

your purposes for giving me my life.

Let me prize your presence,

the treasures of knowledge and revelation of you,

and let everything else dim in comparison,

considering it all garbage,

casting off all the cares of this world,

so that I may gain you.

I want to be found in you Lord,

not in any of my own righteousness,

works, or merits,

but in faith,

the righteousness that comes

by believing in you alone.

Lord, to know you,

that I may ultimatley value knowing you,

your Personhood,

your resurrection,

your suffering,

your death,

and become more like you.

Let me continue to press on,

forgetting what is behind,

and reaching for what is ahead,

staying true to your Word

already planted within me,

and eager to develop and grow in you daily.

Be my vision,

be my goal,

be my everything Lord.

I bless you,

Amen.

This Is Love

Abba,

thank you for sending your Son,

giving Him up

to die for me.

This is love,

your suffering,

His atoning sacrifice for the sins of the world.

You have given me salvation, freedom, and hope.

Let me walk through my day

ever remembering your love’s cost,

knowing you’re intimate with my suffering,

and that your love,

how high, long, wide, and deep it is

to enjoy and delight in,

that overwhelms, comforts, and transforms me.

Abba, you know me,

you understand me,

I am your beloved,

and it is well with my soul.

Thank you Abba.

Amen.

Bold And Courageous

Lord,

Strengthen and empower me with your Spirit,

to obey and walk in your righteousness,

make me bold as a lion,

tearing down every thought, pretension, and argument

setting itself against the knowledge of you;

as gentle as a dove,

speaking truth in love,

being salty and compassionate,

shining your light, unapologetic.

You’re worthy Lord

of all my praise, my life, my heart.

Thank you for all you’ve done,

coming to die for all my sins,

raising yourself up,

resurrecting my life with yours.

Refresh me with hope for all that is to come,

to see me in and through the storms ahead,

root and ground me by faith in your love,

unshaken in any season,

and let the joy of my salvation

be my courage, my strength

to give and share

with those who would need it in this dark world.

I praise you and bless you Lord.

Amen.
