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.

Sojourners

Lord,

help me to embrace the tension of being in this world

yet living for eternity.

Increase my faith,

let them be pillars within me,

to stand in your spiritual truths,

in the midst of culture’s temptations and my flesh.

Help me to examine my heart again and again

to clearly see and understand what I am truly living for.

Sift up my own deception,

expose my blind spots

where I am living for temporal comfort and gain.

I repent to you where the lines have gotten muddied in me,

and I ask you to cleanse my heart,

renew a right spirit,

grant me your perspective and incentive,

restore joy, peace, and hope

and help me to be steadfast in you.

Let me be ok in the struggle,

with the wrestle,

understanding that this is your call,

to live in your Spirit,

at odds with a world running the other way.

Help me to be wise and save souls,

obeying your voice,

following your instructions,

conducting myself honorably,

submitting my heart to your Word,

that the fruit of the Spirit

would bear witness to this world

of your Light.

Help me Lord,

you are worthy.

Amen.

I’m Blessed

Lord,

Help me to stay low, poor in spirit before you,

who considered yourself nothing before God

that I may be blessed, spiritually rich, and happy.

Let me mourn over my sins,

grant me a spirit of repentance

that I may be forgiven, touched by your grace,

and comforted when you lift my burdens.

Help me to walk in your gentle, sweet spirit,

and be kind and self-controlled,

that I may have your peace and security,

and be entrusted with your inheritance.

Put in me an insatiable hunger and thirst

to seek you, know you, and live right before you

that you may nourish me with all your goodness

and I may be completely satisfied in you.

Let me walk in mercy,

trusting in your promises

and sheltering under your deliverance,

that your loving kindness and mercy would overtake me.

Strengthen my heart to walk in purity,

staying on the paths of courage, integrity, and godly character

so that I may see your face clearly and know your closeness.

Let me be a peacemaker to express your heart,

brokering reconciliation, healing, and connection,

and have the joy and favor of being called your child.

Enable me to stand firm in faith,

doing what you have called me to do,

walking in love, courage, truth, and grace

that when persecution comes,

I would be spiritually alive,

my soul lit on fire for your glory,

experiencing your peace that transcends all understanding,

and enjoying your rewards when eternity comes.

I bless you Lord.

Amen.

With Me

Lord,

You are so good,

your ways are perfect.

You uphold me by your hand,

you keep me in your shalom.

You make the paths straight before me,

your lovingkindness catches up to me,

you never let me go.

You hem in behind and before,

you walk beside me as Lord, Shepherd, and Friend.

Perfect Love,

you watch over me,

and dwell within me.

Lord, in you I have no lack,

and I will praise you!

Amen.

Waiting On Dreams

Lord,

Let my worship be in spirit and in truth,

loving you wholeheartedly, single-mindedly.

Help me to surrender my desires, dreams, longings

where they are safest,

into your hands,

allowing you to give and take away

as you please,

trusting in your perfect timing,

your perfect love knows what’s best.

In the waiting,

strengthen my spirit, my inner man.

Root and ground me

in the heights, widths, lengths, depths of your love.

cherishing you, your presence

above anything else,

knowing you are already my great reward

and that everything else

is a blessing from the overflow of your heart.

Let me taste and know that you are good

in the land of the living,

so that my heart and soul will sing praise to you

all the days of my life.

I bless you Lord.

Amen.

Paths

Lord,

Lead and guide my steps into all truth,

let your Word be a lamp unto my feet,

illuminate the ways that you have called me.

Let me lean in to hear your voice,

not letting your Word out of my sight,

cherishing your rhema in my heart,

for they are life to me,

healing for soul, mind, and body.

Let my ears hear Wisdom calling in the streets

and turn down to her paths.

Grant me the spirit of the fear of the lord,

knowledge and common sense,

discernment, insight, understanding,

counsel and might,

to live righteous and pleasing in your sight.

Let me see evil coming and hide,

guide me in the ways of truth and light,

Lord that I may be blessed,

give glory to your Name,

but above all just know you and walk with you

all the days of my life.

I love you Lord.

Amen.

Overcomer

Lord,

I need you,

I need your love.

Let me be open, vulnerable, unapologetic

in my heart cries to you.

Thank you for glimpses behind my denial

and into my fragility,

an awareness of who I am without you,

so I may remember my need afresh

and turn wholeheartedly back to you.

Give me strength in my spirit

in moments where anxiety, discouragement, and dread overwhelm,

to not take things into my own hands,

but slow down, be still,

humble my heart, and turn to you,

asking for your help,

standing firm in your truth,

listening to your voice,

resisting the enemy and its lies,

and following your words, your ways,

knowing, trusting you are victorious,

and your Spirit dwells in me,

and that I am more than an overcomer,

more than a conqueror in you!

I praise you Lord!

Amen.

Wait On Him

Lord,

I wait on you,

trusting you’re moving where I cannot see.

I release those I love into your care,

confident you’ve placed your desires in my heart,

expectant you’ll answer my cries.

I will see salvation, healing, deliverance,

a revival of your Spirit,

you moving and transforming,

bringing the dead to life.

I’m excited Lord,

because I know you are good,

beyond faithful, true to your promises,

and you never let go of those you’ve called,

to the end you pursue.

So let me be strong in your love,

patient to move with your nudges,

seeing through your eyes of mercy and truth,

hoping in your awesome power and redemption,

believing in your perfect work,

submitted to your will, your way, your timing,

surrendered of my own.

Glorify yourself O Lord,

magnify your Name,

bring your lost children into your fold,

and let the bells ring, praises rise up,

heavens rejoice,

until your soon coming.

I praise you Lord!

Amen.

Victor!

Lord of lords,

King of kings,

I praise you God of the universe

that you reign in perfect goodness, justice, love, and mercy.

You have overcome all evil,

crushed the enemy’s head under your heel,

obliterated the power of sin and death,

pierced through the lies and shadows,

broken every chain and bondage,

Yeshua, you are Messiah,

Savior of all the world,

Jew and Gentile alike,

and you are coming again soon.

I thank you for the gift of your Spirit,

sealing me as yours,

that like Father like Son,

like you I’m made in your image,

a spirit of power, love, and a sound mind.

I can do all things in you

strengthened and empowered by your Spirit,

your supernatural love and grace

to fulfill your will for my life in this generation.

Lord arise within me,

for in you I am more than a conqueror,

an overcomer and victor,

every thought, pretension, or argument against the knowledge of you,

I tear down with your truth,

every whispering lie, condemnation, or judgement

I rebuke and crush with your Word.

I am a child of God,

beloved, whole, complete, and strong,

and I will run this race to win the prize,

victorious.

All for your glory, for your beautiful Name’s sake.

Amen.
