One And Only God

Lord,

Maker of heaven and earth,

Creator of all the universe,

Master Conductor of spinning galaxies, planets, solar systems,

Producer of all energy, effortlessly firing the sun, moon, and stars,

With all creation I praise your power, glory, and majesty.

Intelligent Designer,

you established the boundaries of waters,

sea and sky,

made the sparrow and leviathan,

all life on this planet

flora, fauna, earth,

all depend on your hand,

sustained by you,

Artist, Musician

making all things beautiful

canvasing the world in colors, textures,

elegant shapes and designs,

Giver and Source of Life,

you stand utterly alone,

high, holy, and other.

Yet you made man in your image,

thoughts, feelings, choice, word, relationship,

you are the Greatest Personality,

an endless rainbow of emotions,

thoughts that far surpass all the sands on the seashore,

intimate, gracious God that knows all the hearts of man,

honoring choice even to death.

Who are you Lord…

instill in me a heart, wonder, and curiosity to seek you more,

delight and joy in finding you

one revelation at a time

as much and more than I can handle.

Be pleased Lord,

to reveal yourself

to the hearts of those you are drawing to you

through the glory of your creation

and the goodness of your presence all around.

I praise you Lord.

Amen.

Praise Your Name

Lord,

I praise your Name,

I bless your Name from this moment

and forever on,

from the sun’s rising to setting,

your Name will be praised.

You are high above all the earth,

your majesty fills the heavens,

there’s none like you

enthroned on the highest seat.

You humble yourself,

stoop down,

to consider the heavens and the earth.

You lift my head up,

caring for my heart,

I will not fear or be anxious,

but cast all my cares on you.

Thank you and I praise you Lord.

Amen.

Peace Be Still

Lord,

I thank you for your peace

transcending all understanding,

loosening and unfurling

the knotted messes of my soul,

calming, grounding, deepening within me

like the depths of an ocean swell

connected to the expanses of heaven above,

I’m riding the waves of praise emanating

from all your creation

and from my spirit within,

I can finally hear it

in the stillness of my soul.

Let me be still and know that you are God,

and align with the foundations of the universe

and all creation singing praise, glory, and honor

for who you are, what you’ve done,

your sacrifice, death, and life.

You hold the moon and stars in your hands,

you love this speck called earth,

you love me.

I rest assured, in peace,

in your ever-present, all-knowing, omnipotent love.

I praise you Lord.

Amen.

Promises

Lord,

In your presence,

in your hands,

I am safe, cared for, loved.

I thank you for your plans and thoughts

that you have for me,

I know they are plans for peace and my well-being,

not for disaster,

you are good through and through,

and I trust you,

you protect and guard over my life,

longing for your best for me.

I thank you that your plans are to give me a future and hope,

to restore all the years the locusts have eaten,

to pour out mercy and grace over past failures and shame,

to bring compensation for all the enemy has stolen, killed, and destroyed,

you bring strength and life to my heart.

I call on you Lord,

for your lovingkindness, generosity, and graciousness has won me over.

I come and pray to you,

knowing you hear my voice

and that you bend down from heaven,

tilting your ear to listen to me.

Your presence stirs deep longing in my heart for you, for eternity,

and I seek you, I need you,

you are my life, you are my everything,

and I will never stop searching for you with all my heart

because you promise to be found by me.

Lord, as your Word comes to pass in my life,

you will restore my fortunes and set me free

and all my generations coming forth,

and I will stand in your promises,

in the land you have given to me,

you will bring me back home.

I love you, bless you, and thank you Lord.

You alone are God, and worthy of all praise.

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.

Trust God Alone

Lord,

I praise you that in my waiting

you renew my strength

like that of an eagle’s,

soaring in your Spirit.

I praise you for a spirit of power, love, and a sound mind,

that I place in your capable hands, your strong care.

Though some may trust in their own strength,

might, intelligence, connections, and power,

I remember you and will trust in you alone.

Though there are heartaches and sufferings

I don’t understand,

things that have not gone the way I’d hoped or planned,

I place my trust in you.

Lord you are good,

your mercy and love endures forever,

your loving kindness chases down every heartbroken sinner

like me.

When I trusted in idols, in my own strength,

I bowed down under the yoke of the enemy

and was broken.

But now I put my trust in you,

and I will rise up and stand strong,

firm in my faith,

with power in my spirit, soul, and body,

so that when I fall seven times, I will get right back up,

bold as a lion,

unhindered by shame and sin.

I praise you for your blood,

for the transaction of my death for your eternal life.

I bless you Lord,

you alone are worthy, worthy, worthy,

of all my praise.

Amen.

God’s Joy

Abba,

Thank you for your kindness and grace,

that your thoughts toward me are a million fold good,

that your love showers upon me like a comet storm.

I praise you for your songs of joy

reverberating throughout the heavens,

drenching me in resonance, life, and delight.

I’m in awe of your love and compassion,

quiet, merciful, gentle, unobstrusive,

making no mention of my past sins.

Your love is all around,

surrounding, embracing,

cleansing and renewing me.

There’s none in the heavens and the earth like you,

nothing, no one that comes close,

no second that even compares.

You are awesome and glorious,

resplendant in your beauty, holiness, and love.

I praise you Abba,

thank you for making me yours.

Amen.

Moving In His Spirit

Abba,

Let me rest in your breath today,

walking to the beat of your heart,

infuse me with your Spirit,

and let praise and thanksgiving from my lips

be like incense rising to your throne room of grace

Inhabit my praises to you,

let me move through this day,

aware, swimming through your waves of grace,

washing and renewing me moment by moment,

riding the rhythms and flows of your Spirit,

being content to be still,

knowing when to move and act.

Fill my belly with your delight

as I remember the joy of my salvation,

let your words fill my mouth

spreading life, healing, and grace

like sweet honey from a honeycomb to those around me,

and bless me with more of you,

you’re all I need,

you are everything Lord,

that I may be a blessing to others.

I love you Lord,

be please to glorify, bring honor to your Name

through your beloved daughter today.

Amen.

The Happy Righteous

Lord,

I praise you and bless you for all that you have done for me.

Thank you for coming to die for all of my sins,

forgiving me, past, present, and future,

covering and cleansing me with your blood,

washing away all my filth.

Thank you for your Spirit that dwells within,

clean and pure, with no guile.

When I was silent about my sin,

ashamed, stuffing it all down and away,

my health deteriorated,

and I groaned all day.

Your hand of discipline and displeasure was heavy upon me,

I was always exhausted with no energy to make it through the day.

Thank you for your patience, your grace that drew me.

When I acknowledged my sin to you,

came clean and poured out my heart at your feet,

you forgave everything,

lifting all my guilt and shame.

Lord, I hide myself in you for you are my refuge,

I’m surrounded by your strength, your song, and power.

I praise you for your wise counsel and guidance,

showing me the paths of life and righteousness.

Lord I am willing to learn, let your eye be upon me!

I’ve known the sorrows of being separate from you,

and I trust, lean in, depend on you now,

I praise you for your loving kindness,

your presence surrounding me,

for your love is better than life.

My heart is glad and I rejoice in you O Lord,

may I always be in alignment, be right with you.

I bless you Lord.

Amen.

Blessed Work

Lord,

You hear my voice in the morning,

and I watch and wait upon you to answer me,

give me grace to still my heart and quiet my mind,

that your soft nudges, your gentle presence,

and your sweet impressions,

would find rest in me.

Fill me with strength for the day,

let my spirit be strong,

filled with faith, hope, and love,

bold, confident, courageous in you,

give health to my bones, body, and muscles,

to sustain the work you’ve given my hands to do.

Don’t let me forget that it’s with you that I labor,

keep me from overwhelm, independence,

and building my small towers of Babel,

let me remember that you’re always with me,

your presence sustains me,

your wisdom guides me,

and that I’m never alone.

There’s work to do for your kingdom,

and I praise you for your joy that is my strength.

I bless you in my work and in my rest,

you alone are worthy.

Amen.
