Give Me Strength

Lord,

I praise you and thank you for tender care,

your love and gentleness wrapping around me,

bringing comfort to my body, soul, and spirit.

I thank you for your rest when I feel weak,

thank you that you’re not the one that pushes,

rather it’s me,

so I lay down my own expectations, to-do lists, and pressure,

and just breathe,

resting in your hands,

now aware of your presence,

feeling the anxiety drain from my muscles,

and relief fill my cells.

In my weakness, be strong and rise up within me Lord through this day.

Let it be your Spirit, life, words, love, wisdom, grace, and strength

to minister to my heart and those around me,

that I may decrease so you will increase

and I can still be a faithful witness to your beauty and righteousness.

I’m unable to go forth without your strength and power,

your grace and life,

go before me and rest on me Lord,

I praise you that I have all I need in you for life and holiness,

I have you.

I bless you Lord.

Amen.

Spirit Of Life

Lord,

I praise you for your salvation, healing, and deliverance.

You are my Lord and Savior,

your Spirit of life has set me free —

I’m free from all condemnation, judgement, guilt, and shame.

What I couldn’t do in my skin,

with rules, regulations, prescriptions, and protocols,

dead in my spirit and efforts without you,

you did.

I thank you and praise you for becoming my sin,

and the blood sacrifice for my sin offering forever.

I praise you for subduing, condemning all sin in my flesh,

you have overcome the world,

and put in me fresh strength to live by your Spirit,

guided by your power.

You have granted me access to live by your Spirit,

to set my heart and mind upon your will and purpose.

I praise you for the promise of life and peace,

my wholeness and well-being

as my mind is stayed upon you,

and you teach me to walk with you.

I can’t believe your Spirit dwells within me

to guide and direct me,

making me your precious child.

I’m alive eternally because of your righteousness,

your holiness that dwells within me,

all given as a gift out of your wonderous grace to me.

Just as your Spirit raised you from the dead to life,

you revive me, give me new life, and raise up my mortal body by your Spirit.

Lord, by the power of your Spirit,

grant me strength, enable me

to continually put to death all of my thoughts and behavior

outside of your perfect will that brings blessing, protection, and life.

Lead me that I may be blessed,

and called a daughter of God.

I bless your Name.

Amen.

My Lord

My Lord,

I surrender to your waves of mercy,

sinking deep, allowing your love to penetrate every cell of my body.

I can’t believe you would take me back,

after my failures, my sin, my betrayal of you,

the nails I put in your hands and feet,

the way I mocked and scorned you,

how hard and cold my heart was to your suffering.

I don’t understand how you receive me back again and again,

this prodigal,

with wide open arms,

putting your ring on my finger,

your robe on my back,

telling me I am yours,

that you chose me and want me,

and I belong to you.

I can’t understand your love in my intellect,

yet you pursue me, you haven’t let me go.

You are kind, gentle, and good,

holy, pure, with no guile,

strong, tender, compassionate,

humble, gracious, and patient.

You keep no record of my wrongs,

your heart is always soft towards me,

open, merciful, you never hold back.

I bless you Lord

there’s none that loves like you,

you alone are God,

perfect in love,

beautiful, glorious,

take this small, broken heart,

make it wholly yours,

I give myself to you.

Amen.

Walk With Me

Abba,

As I go through my day,

grant me dove’s eyes for you,

an awareness of your presence,

your voice,

your peace,

your heart.

As people cross my path,

bumping into my being,

as circumstances fill the space around me,

use it all to slough off dead soulish skin,

expose the places of my need,

the idols of my choice,

and pour out your lovingkindness, mercy, and compassion,

into my broken matrices,

that I may truly be healed, set free, and whole.

Let me sit and be in your love

in all my glorious mess,

let it be your love and grace that truly transforms and sustains me,

not my disciplines, mantras, and efforts.

Abba I invite you,

come into my day to day,

my step by step,

my breath to breath,

breathe into me,

and empower me to walk with you.

Let me be your companion

just like in the garden.

I love you Abba.

Amen.

Healing In Relationships

Abba,

I thank you that I may approach your throne room of grace,

and that you hear my cries and petitions.

I bless you for your heart for healing and wholeness in relationships,

and I praise you for your precious fellowship,

Father, Son, and Spirit,

three in one, one in three

dwelling in perfect, beautiful unity.

Abba have mercy on my brothers,

restore the sweet intimacy of their brotherhood from youth.

Melt down the walls that have been built up through the years,

cleanse and heal wounds and trauma that were beyond their control.

Soften hearts from unforgiveness, bitterness, and anger,

and remove the distorted filters given by the enemy.

Please save, heal, and deliver them Lord,

out from the spirit of division, oppression, isolation,

pride, deception, unforgiveness, suspicion, and betrayal.

Release repentance upon their hearts,

a spirit of conviction of sins,

and turn their faces to you,

draw them to yourself,

let them see your Son

and receive His sacrifice, forgiveness, and life.

Let them dwell in unity

by the grace of your Spirit,

in one heart, one mind, one spirit,

under the lordship of your Son,

restored, healed, whole, complete.

Place your hedge of protection around them,

release your angels concerning them,

fight the battle that has raged against their brotherhood.

Abba, you always win,

please destroy the enemy and bring your victory here.

Bless these brothers to receive your full compensation

for all the years the locusts have eaten,

and revive this relationship

with your precious mercies, grace, and life.

Thank you Abba.

Amen.
