Close

Lord,

thank you that you’re with me,

right by my side,

holding my hand,

walking, leading, guiding me,

you are my Good Shepherd.

Even as the storms rage around me,

I’ll keep myself here

in your presence and love,

keeping my eyes fixed on you,

I shall not fear,

and I will trust you,

letting your rod pull me closer,

your staff defeat my enemies,

you are with me

through the fire, deep waters,

the mountains and valleys,

you will not allow my feet to stumble.

Glorify your name through me Lord

no matter what I am going through,

help me to thank you,

praise you,

love you,

bless you.

You are my God,

and I know you are faitful.

I worship you.

Amen.

I Will Praise

Lord,

I praise you in all my circumstances,

thankful that this can be my offering

when the enemy overwhelms

and life gets dark,

I’m blessed to praise you.

It’s a chance to exercise my faith

on this side of heaven,

such a simple act

where there’s sorrow, frustration, and pain,

where my eyes are still veiled,

and I only dimly perceive your Spirit,

I’m blessed to praise you.

Thank you that it’s what I’m made for,

the eternal preoccupation of my spirit,

to gaze upon your beauty,

worship you in truth and Spirit,

and wait upon your presence.

The enemy lies with distractions and anxieties,

tasks that push and press.

He’s a liar and deceiver,

and I cast these thoughts that overwhelm

into your care,

and I praise you.

I praise you for your salvation,

your mighty healing and deliverance,

your lovingkindness, mercy, and care,

your guidance, counsel, and leading.

I praise you for your timing,

your perfect will and ways,

your holiness, your mystery,

revealing yourself to the world,

to me.

I praise you Abba, Son, and Ruach,

I’m secure, I’m safe, I’m well content

in the fellowship of your beautiful presence.

Amen.

Peace Be Still

Lord,

I thank you for your peace

transcending all understanding,

loosening and unfurling

the knotted messes of my soul,

calming, grounding, deepening within me

like the depths of an ocean swell

connected to the expanses of heaven above,

I’m riding the waves of praise emanating

from all your creation

and from my spirit within,

I can finally hear it

in the stillness of my soul.

Let me be still and know that you are God,

and align with the foundations of the universe

and all creation singing praise, glory, and honor

for who you are, what you’ve done,

your sacrifice, death, and life.

You hold the moon and stars in your hands,

you love this speck called earth,

you love me.

I rest assured, in peace,

in your ever-present, all-knowing, omnipotent love.

I praise you Lord.

Amen.

Thank You Lord

Lord,

I praise you,

there’s no one like you

in heaven or on earth.

Grant me words

for a heart that is astounded,

in awe of what you can do.

My spirit blesses you,

loves you,

sings to you.

I’m brought to my knees,

humbled by your mercy,

your redemption and healing.

Thank you for your light,

shining through my vulnerability,

drawing others close to you

through my weakness.

You don’t waste one thing,

you see every piece, every part,

Lord, it’s all yours.

I love you and bless you today.

Amen.

Make Me One…

Lord,

You are an artist,

painting moving pictures in the sky,

all you create is alive

with voices that sing you praise throughout the earth,

unending symphonies of joy and delight.

To look into your Word

is to gaze on perfection,

and know truth and righteousness

bringing life, healing, and security to my soul.

Your Word purifies my heart,

gives sight to my eyes,

and makes me clean.

Search me and know me Lord,

test me and know my anxious thoughts,

see if there is any offensive way in me,

and lead me in the way everlasting.

Make me one that arrests your eyes as you search throughout the earth,

whom you would give your strong support,

one like David, who blesses your heart

that my joy would be full

in always thanking and praising you.

Amen.

Lord,

Thank you for your Shekinah glory,

your Holy Spirit,

your glorious presence.

Thank you for the way you have crafted women,

eishet chayil,

vessels of honor, valor, courage, and beauty.

Cleanse away the lies thrust upon us

by the enemy, who rules over the this world,

and its broken systems, cultures, and families.

Thank you for making women the reflection of your image,

endowed with the qualities

of your subtle wisdom,

gentle strength,

and powerful compassion.

Shine your light through your daughters,

precious and dearly loved,

to arise in the fullness of all your hope, belief, and love today.

Amen.

Forgive Me

Abba,

I trust you.

You are the righteous judge

with all-encompassing wisdom,

seeing the hearts of men.

You are true and right,

ruling over all in perfect justice.

Thank you for your mercy,

for forgiving me

when I deserved all the penalties you took for me.

I put my vengeance and bitterness on the cross,

I bring my wounds before your feet,

and I trust you God to judge, bring justice, redeem,

and to avenge my wounds.

I forgive myself, for believing lies,

being my harshest critic, a relentless slave driver,

setting unreasonable standards

that was never my yoke or burden.

I bless my enemies because I love you

and let them go, entrusting them to you.

Thank you God for your deliverance,

your grace to forgive,

your love and sacrifice that sets my soul free.

I will rest in you alone,

trusting and following your Son.

Amen.

Rich Legacy

O Lord,

Thank you for my inheritance in you,

for showing me the new family I am grafted into,

with a rich legacy of faith, hope, courage, and devotion

in the midst of human weakness, frailty, and mistakes.

You so patiently explain

and carefully sort,

the threads of culture, tradition, history, and lineage

that you have lovingly woven together

and redeemed by your Spirit within me.

I’m a new creation, a child of God.

I thank you for the gifts and treasures

you’ve deposited in my spirit,

my blood, my culture, my people, and my life.

You make all things new.

Amen.

Phoenix Rising

Lord,

Son of Man,

you willingly laid down your life,

embracing, being all of our limitations,

fears, shame, and vulnerability.

You died despised by us all.

Son of God,

you had the power to take up your life,

destroy the power of sin,

obliterate all fear of death,

and rise, more glorious than the sun.

I believe, and your Spirit dwells within me.

The power that raised you from the dead,

and seated you at the right hand of the Father in heaven,

is the same power,

moving and working in me,

resurrecting me,

like a phoenix from the ashes,

a tiger rising.

I am a new creation united with your Spirit,

and there is no stopping you in me.

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.
