Let Me…

Lord,

Let me…

be wise,

and trust your Spirit,

your Word,

leading and guiding me into all truth⁠—

peaceable, full of light,

gentle, sincere,

considerate, and merciful.

Let me…

trust your heart

for you are good,

generous, and kind.

You are tender and caring,

knowing every hair on my head,

your thoughts outnumbering

all the grains of sand on the seashore.

Let me…

be at rest,

knowing my life is in your hands

working all things for my good,

for you glory.

Let me never stop praising you… always!

I bless you Lord.

Amen.

Following Him

Lord,

Thank you for your grace,

for eyes to see,

your presence going before me,

following in your footsteps,

leading me on a journey

that I know

leads only straight into your heart,

though the rest is still a mystery.

I let go of my crutches —

my expectations, assumptions,

my carefully laid plans and controls,

and embrace hope in faith,

trusting you in this adventure.

You’ve called me out of my old life

into a relationship with you,

and I can’t wait to run with my Beloved,

forgetting what is behind,

pressing on towards what lies ahead,

my heavenly reward

in You.

Amen.

Heart’s Desires

Lord,

you know my heart,

better than I know myself.

I trust you,

and put myself into your hands.

Draw out,

bless,

anoint the desires

you’ve placed in me

as I look to you.

Breathe upon them,

give them life

and wings through my hands and feet.

Grow me, mature me

into the fullness of who you’ve called me to be.

Give me vision,

fill me with hope

of your call for my life.

Enable me by the power of your Spirit,

to hear and obey,

and worship you with all that I am

through this life you’ve given me.

I praise you and bless your precious Name.

Amen.

Deliverance

Lord,

I bless you for your blood that covers me,

cleansing me from all my sin,

delivering me from death,

the lamb’s blood painted on the door frame,

the angel of death passing over,

I rest safe and secure,

because of your sacrifice.

I listen in the deep of the night,

their wailing cry of grief rising up,

those embroiled in idolatry,

rebellion against you,

and the fear of the Lord fills my heart,

holy awe at your hand of deliverance.

I praise you for making the way,

for saving me from my captors and enemies.

You alone are God,

great and mighty are you,

worthy of all praise!

Amen.

Leaving The Past Behind

Lord,

Thank you that my life is in your hands.

I can shake off the burdens of my past,

the regrets and failures,

trusting you will work all things for my good,

and reveal to me the treasures hidden in darkness.

I praise you for your wisdom, discernment,

and counsel dispensed into my spirit,

your molding, pruning, and stretching;

forging me in your continuous flame of love

as I am being created in your image.

I forget what is behind,

you clear my vision for what lies ahead.

No more shadows looming in the future,

or expectations and assumptions I should fulfill,

but surrendered and free, I look to you today,

in this moment,

the gift of your presence with me,

let me run with you.

I bless you Lord.

Amen.

Under His Shelter

Lord,

quiet my spirit,

calm my heart,

help me to sense your presence,

entering into your shelter

to rest secure under the shadow of your wings.

Thank you that I may always approach you,

freely in Messiah,

His blood has paved the way.

Wrap me up in your comfort,

soothe my frazzled nerves

with the anointing of your presence.

The enemy cannot touch me here.

Thank you for your covering,

your protection,

you are my refuge, my safe place.

Watching safely from here,

I see you destroying my enemies,

shielding me from destruction and harm,

keeping me from plague and evil.

You will never abandon me,

all my days,

I will set my heart upon you.

I bless you Lord.

Amen.

Follow Him

Lord,

you are the good Shepherd,

faithful Servant Leader,

the Way, the Truth, and the Life.

You go before me,

clearing the way ahead,

your Spirit hovering over me,

making my path straight.

Clear my vision to see you,

to hear your voice alone,

and to follow you without hesitation.

Let me enjoy your sweet companionship,

knowing I am yours,

and you are mine,

You are the Light of the world,

and I warm my soul in your presence.

Help me to draw close,

resting in your strength,

your wisdom, peace, comfort, and guidance

always near.

Align my being with your heart,

that I would be your willing servant,

partner bride,

fulfilling all of your purposes in and through this life,

that your Name would be glorified

here like it is in the heavens.

You alone are worthy.

I bless you and praise you Lord!

Amen.

All The Lord’s

Abba,

hide me under the shadow of your wings,

let me dwell under the shelter of the Most High.

Draw me, deliver me out of Babylon,

expose the lure of independence,

being self made, chasing status,

mammon and material things,

all the sin that so easily entangles,

and set me free in You,

submitted to your Word,

truly alive in your Spirit.

Lord, let me love what you love,

and hate what you hate.

Let me delight myself in you,

put in me the desires of your heart,

shrivel away any desires that are not of you,

that my words, my heart, my life

would wholly align with your purposes,

and that my life would be yours

for your glory.

I bless you and praise you Lord.

Amen.

Where The Spirit Goes

Lord,

you have set me free,

broken the chains,

released the fetters,

sin and death no longer have a hold on me.

I cling to you,

your Spirit a power, a force,

holy personality moving me forward,

your Word a light,

piercing through the darkness,

beckoning me to come…

be bold, courageous,

have faith.

I’m needing you more

than ever before,

all the way to forever,

please don’t ever let me go.

Let me not shrink back any longer,

but jump on this wild ride,

my heart and life,

sails for your Spirit to fill

wherever, to whomever, you may please.

Bless me, use me,

I say yes and surrender my life to you,

all for your glory.

I praise you Lord.

Amen.

Contentment

Lord,

Draw me back to you,

turn my heart to you once more,

I repent of chasing the idols of my culture,

thinking they would make me happy,

feeding the discontentment of my flesh,

always longing for more.

Help me, teach me, gently train me Lord

to be content in you.

Grant me greater revelation

that I have everything I need in you,

so I can let go,

unclench my fists,

and cease my striving and grabbing.

Forgive me Lord,

have mercy on me,

wash away the deception,

cleanse my heart,

and let me see you rightly.

Return my heart to first love,

and give me the grace

to love you

with all my strength, intelligence, will, and passion once more.

You alone are worthy Lord.

Amen.
