To Know Him

Lord,

help me to trust you,

through to every crevice of my heart,

I invite you,

your presence,

your Spirit,

your will,

your ways,

to lead and guide me.

Let my decisions,

my life, my ways

be in perfect alignment with yours.

I cannot live without your presence,

I falter and fail without your favor and Spirit,

I need you Lord,

bless me to see you,

know you, and love you rightly.

I praise 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.

Whole And Unified

Lord,

I praise you for your healing,

making me whole, complete in you.

As you bring together the pieces of my heart,

I pray for the Body of Messiah whom you love

that you are doing the same.

Bring us together in you,

wrapping the different streams

tightly as one cord around you Lord.

Would you rebuke the voice of the enemy

from your Bride,

protect us from the spirit of dissension,

offense and bitterness.

Pour out your grace

and a spirit of unity

in our families, communities,

congregations, and ministries.

Help us to love one another in spirit and truth,

standing firm in our faith,

looking beyond temporal differences

to eternal fellowship,

running this race

fighting the fight together,

as we cannot do it alone.

We long to know and experience

your blessing and anointing

when we are together

unified as your Bride.

Help us to fulfill your purposes

in this generation.

We praise 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.

Yours Alone Lord

Lord,

Keep me soft,

keep me tender,

sensitive to your Spirit,

open to your whispers,

enthralled by your words,

in love with your presence,

humble to your counsels,

faithful to your commands

persevering in obedience,

bold when you call,

standing firm in your truth,

wise and shrewd as a snake,

loving right, loving well

all the days of my life.

Shine your light through me Lord,

and be glorified.

I praise you Lord.

Amen.

Precious Word

Lord,

thank you for your Word,

let it divide soul and spirit,

bone and marrow within.

Give me your grace

to choose life,

your Spirit overcoming,

having your victory

in and through my life.

Keep me in your peace,

that I would be unshakable,

standing firm in your love,

who you say I am,

cast all voices of condemnation and shame

far from me.

Let me give attention to your words,

incline my ears to you,

keeping your Word in my heart,

never letting it leave my sight,

for they are life and health,

blessing and peace to me.

I bless you Lord.

Amen.

Uplift My Heart

Lord,

I bless your Name,

for being so close,

your comfort and sweetness

filling my barrenness,

your presence in the midst

of my grief and loss.

Give me an unoffended heart,

cast self pity far from me,

pour out your grace

that I wouldn’t compare

with what isn’t mine,

and instead find true contentment,

resting in your love,

let me bless

even when I feel my lack.

Lord, you are all I need,

I love you and praise your Name.

Amen.

I Need You Spirit

Precious Spirit,

fill me up once more,

indwell me,

empower me,

refresh me,

renew me,

penetrate every cell of my body,

my heart, my mind, my soul,

all that I am,

to walk in the Spirit of Torah,

your heart, your character, your ways.

I cannot do it on my own,

I fail miserably without you,

and I need you Spirit

to live the life my Lord died for me to have.

Help me to kill the things of my flesh,

to choose life,

not death,

so that your light may shine

in and through this life you’ve bought.

Align my heart, my words, my actions

with you Holy Spirit,

take over, take control,

and have your way in me.

I praise you and bless you.

Amen.

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.

Sweet Praise

Lord,

thank you for this moment,

this breath,

to remember you

and give thanks.

It is good;

and all is well with my soul.

Put a new song in my heart today,

and fill me with a spirit of praise,

let my lips be sweet

with lyric and melody,

proclaiming your precious Name,

singing of your glory and goodness,

my heart open wide,

as my hands are lifted up,

my feet swift to dance,

joy chasing my steps.

As I lay my head down to rest,

let me remember your steadfast love,

your faithfulness, your wonderful works

that sustained me through my day,

and marvel at your wisdom,

your thoughts, and your ways

that kept me in the path

of your light and blessing.

Lord, you are the source of life

and the Light of the world,

let me stay close,

ever praising your Name!

Amen.
