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.

A Blessed Life

Abba,

Let me love and be alert as I read your Word,

give me a soft, malleable heart willing to learn.

Open my ears to hear your instruction,

let your Word always be before me,

help me to treasure what you speak in the depths of my heart.

Your Word, your instruction, your counsel

bring life, healing, wholeness, and renewal,

healing and cleansing my heart, mind, and body.

Help me to guard my heart and all that you’ve done in me,

knowing the pleasant boundaries you’ve established

to keep me safe, whole, and happy.

Let your rivers of living water flow unhindered from my spirit,

and show me if and where there is anything blocking

that’s displeasing to you.

Please help me with my tongue,

let my yes be yes and my no be no,

help me to communicate clearly

and let me speak truth in love.

Direct my gaze straight,

give me strength to move forward

making the next right decision and the next,

bold as a lion in righteousness and courage.

Help me to make good choices,

considering the paths before me,

making sure my ways are steadfast and sure.

Give me blinders that I would not look right or left,

tempted by evil,

but continue on in the way you’ve set before me.

I thank you that you’re watching over me,

that you’re with me and I’m not alone.

Let me lead a blessed life according to your Word,

that others may see your goodness and praise you.

Amen.

Wisdom From Above

Lord,

I thank you for your wisdom

that is pure, gentle, reasonable,

and brings peace and good fruit.

Thank you for your kind counsel

and your voice that always leads.

I praise you — in you there is no confusion or anxiety,

by your guidance, my steps are secure,

my ways well planned,

surrendered to you who makes the way.

Help me to know my function,

that I may not rush ahead

and miss the goals you have placed in my heart.

Grant me understanding of who you’ve created me to be,

how I’m made,

that my decisions would be wise,

filled with knowledge, understanding, insight, and common sense,

that I would steward my life and my heart well for you,

and live to honor and glorify you with all that I am.

I praise you and bless you Lord.

Amen.

Psalm 23

Precious Lord,

I remember that you lead, guide, and protect me,

I have no lack.

I bless you for rest

in the soft green meadows,

hearing the trickling of streams,

and lapping of quiet waters,

you restore my soul

by showing me yourself,

teaching me your ways,

guiding me to paths of life,

all for your glory.

Even though darkness surrounds,

and the enemy prowls

waiting to shoot his flaming arrows,

I won’t be afraid because you’re close,

you’re always with me,

I’ll cling to you,

you show me the way out,

guide and counsel me,

protect and deliver me.

You favor me, honoring me

despite my enemy’s schemes and ways,

you put him to shame.

You anoint my head with oil,

gladness and joy sing from my heart,

my waking, breathing, walking, going,

all my days are blessed in your presence,

surrounded, comforted, lifted up by your goodness and mercy,

and I will praise your name forever.

Amen.
