Let Me Be Bold

Lord,

Give me courage to speak

Truth prompted by your Spirit,

shedding off people pleasing,

compromising my soul to be liked,

bowing to the world,

and calling it love,

when I’ve only avoided my own cowardice and discomfort.

Please forgive me for shrinking back,

longing more for the praise of man,

their approval and acceptance,

when it lasts for only a moment,

and that is my only paltry reward.

Forgive me when I’ve spoken in a religious spirit

in the name of boldness,

justifying my harsh pride and self righteousness.

I throw myself at your mercy,

please don’t let me be deceived,

overwhelmed, complacent, legalistic,

taking the easy way out because I can…

all the way to hell.

You have conquered sin and death,

given me eternal life,

let me live like I believe it.

Help me to love what you love,

hate what you hate,

and to be loyal, devoted to you,

as you have given all of yourself to me,

and do so again and again.

Let this life be surrendered,

laid down, all for your glory Lord.

I bless you.

Amen.

Faith And Courage

Lord,

thank you that you are with me

as I apply faith to my feet,

stepping into the unknown.

You are my Good Shepherd

who leads, guides, and counsels,

your Spirit already has gone forth

to prepare the way,

you are the Aleph and the Tav

knowing all beginnings and the end.

So I capture the arrows of fear, anxiety, and unbelief

casting them upon you,

and stand upon your Word and Rhema,

you’ve called and I will follow.

You’ve saved me from sin and death,

molding me into a new creation

and set apart to fulfill your purposes,

with you,

glorifying your Name.

You keep my foot from stumbling,

you will not let me put to shame,

you open doors no man can shut,

you shut doors no man can open.

You have plans to prosper me,

not to harm me,

plans to give me a hope and a future.

I will trust in your goodness,

stepping out to answer your call,

intent on obedience,

entrusting the rest to you.

Grant me boldness, courage, and faith

knowing you are with me,

you desire success for me,

and I have no lack in you.

I bless you Lord.

Amen.

Overcomer

Lord,

I need you,

I need your love.

Let me be open, vulnerable, unapologetic

in my heart cries to you.

Thank you for glimpses behind my denial

and into my fragility,

an awareness of who I am without you,

so I may remember my need afresh

and turn wholeheartedly back to you.

Give me strength in my spirit

in moments where anxiety, discouragement, and dread overwhelm,

to not take things into my own hands,

but slow down, be still,

humble my heart, and turn to you,

asking for your help,

standing firm in your truth,

listening to your voice,

resisting the enemy and its lies,

and following your words, your ways,

knowing, trusting you are victorious,

and your Spirit dwells in me,

and that I am more than an overcomer,

more than a conqueror in you!

I praise you Lord!

Amen.

Victor!

Lord of lords,

King of kings,

I praise you God of the universe

that you reign in perfect goodness, justice, love, and mercy.

You have overcome all evil,

crushed the enemy’s head under your heel,

obliterated the power of sin and death,

pierced through the lies and shadows,

broken every chain and bondage,

Yeshua, you are Messiah,

Savior of all the world,

Jew and Gentile alike,

and you are coming again soon.

I thank you for the gift of your Spirit,

sealing me as yours,

that like Father like Son,

like you I’m made in your image,

a spirit of power, love, and a sound mind.

I can do all things in you

strengthened and empowered by your Spirit,

your supernatural love and grace

to fulfill your will for my life in this generation.

Lord arise within me,

for in you I am more than a conqueror,

an overcomer and victor,

every thought, pretension, or argument against the knowledge of you,

I tear down with your truth,

every whispering lie, condemnation, or judgement

I rebuke and crush with your Word.

I am a child of God,

beloved, whole, complete, and strong,

and I will run this race to win the prize,

victorious.

All for your glory, for your beautiful Name’s sake.

Amen.

To Be Bold

Lord,

Hold onto me in my fragility,

I cling to you as my shield,

a strong tower, a refuge, and oasis

in the midst of chaos and turmoil surrounding me.

Help me to stay my mind upon you,

wash my anxiety, my riled spirit

with your living waters

for you are my Sar Shalom.

I remember your salvation,

your love,

your comfort,

your deliverance,

from all my past, the lies and memories that haunted me,

the care and comfort you provided in my weakness,

your strong hand

taking me from darkness into your marvelous light.

Thank you for your promise

that you are always with me,

I’m never alone,

your gift of your spirit of power, love, and a sound mind,

I have all I need in you.

So I will be bold and courageous

because you go with me,

I will not shrink back,

and even when I am crushed,

let the fragrance of your presence arise,

petals before a storm,

so that you receive your glory in this,

no matter what is to come.

All honor, dominion, power, and glory belong to you.

I love you Lord.

Amen.

Bold And Courageous

Lord,

Strengthen and empower me with your Spirit,

to obey and walk in your righteousness,

make me bold as a lion,

tearing down every thought, pretension, and argument

setting itself against the knowledge of you;

as gentle as a dove,

speaking truth in love,

being salty and compassionate,

shining your light, unapologetic.

You’re worthy Lord

of all my praise, my life, my heart.

Thank you for all you’ve done,

coming to die for all my sins,

raising yourself up,

resurrecting my life with yours.

Refresh me with hope for all that is to come,

to see me in and through the storms ahead,

root and ground me by faith in your love,

unshaken in any season,

and let the joy of my salvation

be my courage, my strength

to give and share

with those who would need it in this dark world.

I praise you and bless you Lord.

Amen.
