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.

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.

Content

Lord,

thank you that your eyes have seen,

your presence gone forth,

your Spirit secured,

the boundaries of my day

and my path through it.

I trust you will provide for all my needs,

as you give me breath to breathe,

and grace to live,

thank you for your love, peace, and strength

infusing me

to walk with you

and know you today.

I praise you that no matter what circumstances

or challenges may come across my path,

I have your spirit of power, love, and a sound mind,

your love unchanging, grounding, and covering me,

and your Spirit of wisdom and revelation

guiding me to level paths,

leveling mountains, raising up valleys.

I am content,

knowing I have every advantage

because you have my back,

you know me best,

you usher me into the paths and works

you’ve planned for me.

Have your way in me Lord,

you are the author and perfecter of my faith,

and I entrust my life to you.

Safe Savior,

thank you that your mercies, grace, and love

are new every morning.

I bless you Lord.

Amen.

Lover Of My Soul

Lord,

Thank you for saving me,

lifting my soul up and out of the miry clay,

gifting me your Spirit,

breathing eternal life into me,

buoying me up by your mercy and grace

to traverse this life with you.

In you I have no lack,

my vulnerabilities find your strength,

my pain finds your healing and comfort,

my frustrations, your hope and counsel.

Fill this broken cup,

so that your healing, comfort, joy, and life

would overflow,

and that in all of my being,

utterly dependent on your love,

you would be so glorified

as Lover and Messiah of our souls.

I bless you Lord.

Amen.

Happy And Content

Lord,

help me to be present,

taking a moment,

catching a breath,

to remember you’re with me,

and be aware of your Spirit,

knowing I’m loved,

not by what I do,

but by all you’ve done.

Let me be content,

letting go of perfect,

leaning in, being ok,

and making peace with broken places,

letting your light,

your comfort shine through.

Let me serve you rightly,

pursuing you,

living to please you,

with joy, gratitude, and overflow,

simply as me,

no false burdens, guilt, or expectations,

exactly where I’m at…

with my few loaves and fishes,

offering back my gifts to you,

taking care of my small garden plot,

being faithful and diligent

in the small things…

they count, they matter,

trusting you,

sinking into your grace,

knowing you’re sufficient,

happy that with you,

I lack no good thing.

Let my heart be at peace,

giving life to my body,

joyfully giving my life for you.

Amen.

Content

Lord,

I praise you for being my source of life,

a fountain of living water bubbling up from my spirit,

refreshing my soul, my body,

and washing my eyes to see

your joy, delight, and pleasure in me,

all around me.

Teach me Lord to be content,

self-sufficient through you,

satisfied and fulfilled with no lack,

where I am no longer uneasy, anxious, or rattled,

regardless of what may come my way

in my circumstances and any situation.

Let me know how to get along and live humbly

in difficult, trying times,

and also how to enjoy life

when it is abundant, prosperous, and full.

In all things, let me learn your ways

to face life,

whether I’m poor and hungry,

or well-fed and satiated.

I can do all things which you have called me to do,

I’m strengthened and empowered to fulfill your purposes,

strong, joyful, and self-sufficient in your sufficiency.

I am prepared, full of hope, ready for anything,

equal to anything through you Lord,

infusing me with inner strength and confident peace.

I bless your Name.

Amen.

My Cup Overflows

Yeshua,

Let me be like Mary at your feet,

adoring you,

seeking, listening, waiting.

for you’re returning soon Lord.

Let me be unabashed in bringing my alabaster jar,

and pouring out my worship,

sweet and fragrant to you,

delightful to your heart.

Let me stand firm in your promises,

bold in your love,

joyful in hope,

steadfast, remembering your faithfulness.

And in your presence,

as I’m poured out,

you fill my cup

and my cup overflows,

I’m blessed beyond measure,

your love is better than life.

Amen.
