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.

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.

The Fear Of The Lord Is Clean

Abba,

Holy are you,

glorious in your throne room of grace,

active, concerned, moving

nations and kings in alignment with your purposes.

I praise you for your promises,

time coming into its fullness

your prophetic word fulfilled

and your Son coming into His rightful place.

King of kings and Lord of lords,

make me ready.

I ask you for the spirit of the fear of the Lord

to cleanse my soul,

expose and deliver me from habitual sin,

awaken me from apathy and complacency,

refining fire

come upon on my heart and mind,

that my spirit would remain

brightly burning, united with you.

Reorient me to your priorities,

being alert and sober-minded to pray,

to steward and spend my gifts and talents

for your kingdom, to glorify your Name,

not my own,

to be wise and shrewd as a snake,

gentle as a dove,

stepping into your love,

that my love would abound still more and more

in knowledge, depth of discernment, and insight,

making the most of this time left that you’ve given me,

to fulfill your purpose upon my life.

I long to hear you say

“Well done good and faithful servant.”

Let it be so Abba,

have your way in me.

You alone are worthy,

I bless you.

Amen.

Revival

Abba,

Thank you for your plans and thoughts towards me,

for sharing with me your heart and love,

your joy, hope, beauty, and life.

I praise you for the revival of your Spirit,

setting me free,

my family, friends, and community,

your presence amongst us

making us whole,

bringing salvation, healing, and deliverance,

signs, miracles, and wonders

for all to see,

confirming your Word

that Yeshua reigns and is King of kings.

I praise you for the testimonies to come forth,

to go around the world,

lighting a fire,

searing hearts,

making burning ones

single minded,

whole hearted for you.

Open up your heavens,

pour out your Spirit on all flesh,

bring in the harvest of hungry, thirsty, weary, seeking souls

so that they may find rest in you.

Enable, empower, strengthen, inspire us all in love,

riding on the tsunami of your Spirit

to love hard and love well,

to love for your glory and your Name.

You alone are worthy, you are so good.

I bless you Abba.

Amen.
