In His Hand

Abba,

thank you that you are for me,

you are with me,

you arise on my defense,

you are my avenger.

Let me stand firm in your love,

in faith in what your Son has done,

covering and cleansing me,

making me right before you.

I cast myself into your care.

I ask for your hedge of protection,

your fire wall to surround me,

your hand to cover me,

your talit to hide me.

Rebuke the enemy,

its cloud of accusations,

let the truth of the cross,

the blood of Yeshua

overcome every arrow

and speak a better word.

Release your angelic protection,

that my feet may not stumble,

and I would not shrink back from your call to follow you.

In your Son, I’m beloved,

and have everything I need to do your will.

Help me to walk firmly, unhesitating

in the paths you lead me on,

knowing you provide, you enable,

you empower, you give without reserve

all that I need,

your love and support overabounding,

your grace sufficient,

let me be faithful to you,

that I would fulfill your purpose

in my generation,

not by my strength,

but leaning in, depending on you,

and may you receive all the glory!

May heaven resound with my testimonies

of you on this side and into all eternity.

I praise you!

Amen.

The Lord Reigns

Lord,

Thank you that you reign on your throne,

nothing happens without your knowing,

outside of your perfect will,

good, right, loving, passionate, holy, and true,

waiting, drawing yours to you,

longing for all to be saved,

you hold all things in your hands.

I praise you for your perfect timing,

that even what the enemy means for evil,

you work all things for good

for those who love you,

not slow in keeping your promises,

but so patient, wanting none to be lost.

Thank you for your salvation, healing, and deliverance,

for your deep restoration,

for your plan to make all things right,

one heart, one family, one community at a time.

You are on your throne,

and I rest secure,

knowing that things are not falling apart,

but all is falling into place

towards your soon return.

All honor, praise, glory, and splendor,

dominion, power, and authority is yours.

Amen.

Pursuing God

Lord,

Be my vision,

your Word, a lamp unto my feet,

your Spirit, a sweet, sure guide —

a cloud before me by day,

a pillar of fire by night.

Please guide my steps,

make my path clear,

so my feet will not stumble,

and I do not lose my way.

Grant me wisdom,

place me with

wise counselors who’ve traversed your ancient paths.

Give me discernment and insight,

patience in your timing,

that I may not run ahead,

or lag behind,

but walk with you,

knowing you,

confident in intimacy,

running the race you’ve

uniquely called me to.

Show me when to move

and when to rest,

and let me do both wholly and fully,

growing in my understanding

of my knit and function.

I praise you for your call to follow you.

Help me to cast off all that hinders,

the sin that so easily entangles,

and pursue you,

my reward, my treasure,

my portion and my inheritance,

source of my life.

Amen.

To Pray

Lord,

thank you for reaching my heart,

loosening my lips,

unlocking words

to talk with you,

to pray,

confide,

whisper,

wonder,

cry,

for confidence in your love,

for showing me my limits and lack

by your kindness, not to my shame,

so that I can ask, seek, and knock.

My reason has failed me,

your loving kindness has broken through,

time and again,

I bless you for faith,

softening, circumcising this heart of stone,

and I dare to believe now,

that you are so good,

you will answer.

I accept your terms,

I pray now your will, not my own,

trusting you know best,

with unclenched hands

ready to surrender all and receive

your best for my ultimate good,

even when I don’t understand.

Help me, teach continuously how to pray,

I love you Lord.

Amen.
