Praise the Lord

Lord,

I praise you today,

and forget not all your benefits.

You’ve forgiven me of all my sins,

healed me of all my diseases,

your mercy and grace wash over me,

your loving kindness overtakes me,

I am blessed,

loved, and known

by my Creator and King,

God of the universe,

who holds the whole world,

the breath of every living creature,

the movement of the oceans,

clouds, and winds in His hands.

Let me trust more,

see you all around

and love more,

drench me with with you Spirit,

to worship you all my days,

because you alone are worthy Lord.

Amen.

Draw Me

Lord,

hold my heart,

let me crave your love

more anything this world has to offer.

Draw me to you,

with no hesitation, no walls within me,

help me to run to you,

and enter into your depths of kindness and love.

Thank you for opening your heart,

embracing my shame and guilt first,

loving me into your hand,

granting me faith in your way.

I am dark but lovely,

and I’ve neglected my life,

yet you call and revive me,

you show me the path

to find myself

in your presence and with your people.

I praise you Lord for your love,

your forgiveness, restoration, and hope,

and I bless your Name.

Amen.

His Goodness

Abba,

I repent of the lie

I’ve believed —

that you are not all good.

How deeply this lie has rooted in me,

since childhood the enemy’s only deceived,

and kept me in unbelief.

Thank you for exposing the lie,

for the years you’ve proven your love to me

… again and again.

and I surrender once more,

my will, my independence,

my desire to defend, avenge,

take ahold of my own life,

and I give it to you.

You know me,

you love me,

and I praise you for your love,

your protection and kindness.

The devil’s a liar,

and I know,

you are so good.

I bless you Abba.

Amen.

Increase My Faith

Lord,

You are God,

my Savior, Deliverer, and Healer,

my Provider, Refuge, and Shelter.

I have everything I need in you.

I believe,

so help my unbelief!

Increase faith in my heart,

open my eyes

to your dunamis power,

your supernatural ways,

signs, miracles, and wonders

that confirm your Word,

and proclaim your love,

because you are good!

Give me great faith

to freely surrender all,

opening my hands

and letting go of my paltry trinkets,

trusting to receive all that I need,

eternal treasures,

making my soul rich,

abiding in you.

Let me see you and know you rightly,

and remove all hesitation,

that I may love you boldly, joyfully,

delighting all my days in you.

Amen.

Praise The Lord

Lord,

I praise you —

With all the breath in my lungs,

strength in my arms,

joy in my steps,

I praise you with dance!

With a song in my heart,

lyrics bubbling forth,

melody weaving with spirit,

I praise you with song!

With a sigh of contentment,

silent in revery,

wrapped in your presence,

I praise you with stillness.

I love you Lord,

you are worthy of all my praise.

Amen.

Remembering Queen Esther

Lord,

I praise your for your hand

in and through Esther’s story.

I praise you for resounding victory

through her life,

your absolute care and provision for your people.

You took an orphan,

a hated minority,

one caught in the pressures and confusion

of idolatry, societal pressures,

envy, competition, and secrecy,

and made her a victor for your glory.

I praise you for your spirit within her,

deliverance from her trauma and loss,

the faith and boldness you granted her,

the words you placed in her mouth,

and the courage you gave her to act and speak.

I praise you for your mighty deliverance

of the Jewish people,

again and again,

your are faithful forevermore.

Let me be like Esther,

entrusting myself in your hands,

offering my identity, life, and circumstances

as a willing sacrifice in love

to be used by you,

and give you all the glory.

I bless your Name.

Amen.

Seeking the Lord regarding new direction for The Creative Pray blog.

Hello friend,

Thank you so much for visiting, reading, and praying together on this blog for the past almost 2 years. You’ve been a blessing and encouragement to me, and I’m grateful for these beautiful connections from the Lord through this space.

I’m currently seeking the Lord regarding a new direction for this blog, and desiring to stay open and flexible to His leading and will. My heart remains the same – to glorify Yeshua, express His Spirit, and encourage others, but I am scaling back for the time being. I’d still be honored to post prayers for you and will be posting once a week on Mondays.

Thank you again for joining me in lifting hearts and words to our glorious God, and I look forward to sharing next steps as the Lord leads.

Much love!

With Him

Lord,

You are the Way, the Truth,

and the Life.

The vibrance of your presence

invigorates my soul,

your power resounds through all creation

sustaining life and breath,

cycles and seasons.

All things come from you,

exist through you and for you.

You are the sustainer of life.

Grant me the grace to follow you,

to be bold and courageous

because you are with me.

Let me alight on mountaintops,

running, overcoming in you,

cling to your hand through the valleys,

and stroll through the meadows and plateaus

accompanying your grace.

I love you Lord.

Amen.

Delight In The Lord

Lord,

I praise you,

you are my Maker,

you know me better than I know myself.

Pour your grace upon me,

to enjoy you,

delight in you,

know and love you

as you have loved me.

Place your desires within me,

you know me best,

shrivel away the desires that aren’t of you,

that are from the world,

from people’s expectations,

from my flesh.

I trust I am most content

pursuing the things of your heart.

I praise you

that I have everything I need in you.

I bless you and love you Lord.

Amen.

Love All Around

Beautiful Lord,

open my eyes

to see your love all around,

ocean swells buoying me up,

lifting and carrying me

through the flotsam and jetsam of the day.

Thank you for the all the ways you love me

that I don’t even know,

I’m not even aware of,

help me to never take you for granted.

Pierce through the veil

and let me see beyond

that I may perceive your reflection

in the one standing in front of me,

those all around me,

that your love wouldn’t stop with me,

but would catch fire,

and grow and grow,

that a bonfire of praise would arise

from all around,

all the way up to the heavens

and bless your heart.

I praise you Lord.

Amen.
