Gracious Father

Father,

I bless you for revealing yourself to me,

giving me your Son,

drawing me, opening my eyes

by your Holy Spirit,

to see what you have done,

loving this wretch into you holy arms,

buying my soul

at the price of your Son’s blood.

Thank you Father

for the blood of the Lamb

who was slain for me.

Increase my faith Father,

stretch the edges,

push out the boundaries,

give me clear vision,

to truly see you and know you,

that I may love you,

rejoice,

and worship you rightly.

I praise you and thank you,

loving, merciful God,

you are a good, good Father.

Amen.

Forgiven By God

Lord,

I believe.

You are the Lamb of God,

who came to take away

the sins of the world,

washing me forever clean

of all my wretchedness,

plucking me out of the miry clay,

taking my cursed life,

and turning it into blessing.

Messiah, Redeemer,

Son of Man,

Holy God,

Yeshua you are Lord,

King of Kings,

Lord of Lords,

there’s none greater,

no one like you,

you are glorious,

holy, and beautiful,

I worship you Lord,

may your Name be forever praised!

Amen.

God’s Face

God,

I praise you for your Son,

Lamb of God,

who came to take away the sins of the world.

I thank you for cleansing me of all my sins,

and for tabernacling within me,

making the way to see your beautiful face.

In faith I receive your Son,

I believe all that He has done,

dying for my sins,

taking my punishment upon His frame,

resurrecting into overcoming life,

giving life abundant and eternal,

and I bless you for your mercy,

your lovingkindness and goodness.

I eat of the Bread,

thank you that you desire relationship with me,

drawing me to your table,

enjoying sweet fellowship,

intimacy with you.

As I set my heart, my mind, my way upon you,

looking upon the kindness, tenderness, and compassion

of your holy Face,

let your face shine upon me,

be gracious to me,

let the light of your countenance be upon me,

and grant me your peace.

I bless you Lord.

Amen.

Clay Vessels

Lord,

Without you,

I’m an empty vessel,

made of dust,

brittle, cracked clay,

empty, dry, and purposeless,

useless for life.

Pour out your Spirit upon me,

fill the empty cavern of my soul,

find my every empty crevice,

bring life to every blood vessel,

energize every cell,

create new life

as my hungry soul meets your dunamis power.

Let waves upon waves of your Spirit,

grace, love, and power

wash upon me.

Give me a new heart,

enlighten, illuminate my mind with your revelation,

invigorate my soul to your will,

activate my body and will for your purposes.

I praise you Lord,

the old has gone,

you have made me a new creation,

and I will forever bless you,

my Maker, my Savior,

Deliverer of my soul.

Amen.

Let Me…

Lord,

Let me…

be wise,

and trust your Spirit,

your Word,

leading and guiding me into all truth⁠—

peaceable, full of light,

gentle, sincere,

considerate, and merciful.

Let me…

trust your heart

for you are good,

generous, and kind.

You are tender and caring,

knowing every hair on my head,

your thoughts outnumbering

all the grains of sand on the seashore.

Let me…

be at rest,

knowing my life is in your hands

working all things for my good,

for you glory.

Let me never stop praising you… always!

I bless you Lord.

Amen.

Love of God

LORD,

pour your grace upon me

to love you more.

Spirit, put the love you have for my Lord,

Lord, the love you have for the Father,

Father, the love you have for your Son,

within my heart.

Reveal to me,

grant me favor to understand,

this perfect fellowship of love,

gazing upon the beauty,

holiness, and light of your presence.

I praise you for the glimpses I see,

the tastes of eternity you gift,

in loved ones, close friends,

gathered around a meal,

the fellowship of sister and brothers

in your Spirit, worshipping and loving you.

I pray for more,

that your love would abound still more and more,

and the world see you

through the love we have for one another.

Let it be so,

let your Name be praised.

Amen.

Following Him

Lord,

Thank you for your grace,

for eyes to see,

your presence going before me,

following in your footsteps,

leading me on a journey

that I know

leads only straight into your heart,

though the rest is still a mystery.

I let go of my crutches —

my expectations, assumptions,

my carefully laid plans and controls,

and embrace hope in faith,

trusting you in this adventure.

You’ve called me out of my old life

into a relationship with you,

and I can’t wait to run with my Beloved,

forgetting what is behind,

pressing on towards what lies ahead,

my heavenly reward

in You.

Amen.

Help To Surrender

Lord,

pour out your Spirit upon me,

enter into my heart,

and lead me into fuller surrender.

Expand your presence in me,

overcoming, overtaking fears and anxieties,

driving out control and striving

with your comfort, power, and love.

You have my yes,

have your way in me,

gently expose,

remove the obstacles that have hindered

free reign of your Spirit and love.

Search me

and know my thoughts,

see if there is any offensive way in me,

and lead me in the way everlasting.

I bless you Lord.

Amen.

Heart’s Desires

Lord,

you know my heart,

better than I know myself.

I trust you,

and put myself into your hands.

Draw out,

bless,

anoint the desires

you’ve placed in me

as I look to you.

Breathe upon them,

give them life

and wings through my hands and feet.

Grow me, mature me

into the fullness of who you’ve called me to be.

Give me vision,

fill me with hope

of your call for my life.

Enable me by the power of your Spirit,

to hear and obey,

and worship you with all that I am

through this life you’ve given me.

I praise you and bless your precious Name.

Amen.

He Knows Me

Lord,

thank you that you know me,

better than I know myself,

you see me,

you sift my heart,

my anxieties and worries

you bring up like chaff.

Thank you for your Spirit

that blows it all away,

bringing in your presence,

restoring your peace in my soul.

I praise you for your loving care,

your thoughts towards me

outnumbering all the grains of sand

on the the seashore.

Thank you for your tender kindness,

I bless you Lord.

Amen.
