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.

Walk With God

Lord,

let me be face to face with you

throughout the day,

sharing my thoughts,

baring my heart,

not holding back

coming honestly,

vulnerable and open

before you.

I need you Lord…

so easy for me to say,

yet difficult to bend my knee and do,

humbling for my pride and independence.

Where I’m on autopilot,

depending on my own strength

please gently remind me of your presence,

that you’re with me,

willing and ready to teach me, train me,

show me, guide me, help me once again,

in better, wiser ways than my own.

Let my heart be open to your instruction,

wrapping around your wisdom and counsel,

inviting your strength and power

leaning on you,

so that I walk in your ways,

and am blessed.

Show me how to talk with you,

partner with you,

do life with you,

and let the distractions melt away,

so that I have dove’s eyes before you.

You and me Lord,

please help me to run this race,

and finish well,

and receive your full inheritance in me.

You are splendid, beautiful, and true,

let my life faithfully reflect your worthiness.

Amen.

Beautiful Deliverer

Lord,

Beautiful Deliverer,

I see your light,

your Word

separates my bone and marrow,

soul and spirit,

the oppression and lies that have clung as truth,

suddenly separate from me

like oil and water,

by your gracious revelation,

I sense your presence

where I’ve been failing,

white knuckling on my own,

and faith refreshes me,

hope relieves me,

you bring me to rest.

Deliver me O Lord,

remove every obstacle

that hinders your love,

return my heart to first love,

fresh, bright, and pure

again and again,

always and always with you.

You are my Savior, my Deliverer,

I bless you Lord.

Amen.

Beautiful Work

Abba,

I praise you for beautiful work.

Let my hands be blessed

to do the work you’ve prepared for me.

Reinvigorate my spirit, soul, and body for labor

sharing my yoke and burdens with the Lord,

knowing His wisdom and counsel,

His pace and strength,

His joy and margins.

Let your light shine from within me,

my tongue cleansed of complaining and grumbling,

my heart pure, sincere, and generous,

my body and mind healthy and strong to serve.

Provide for me discernment and faith,

alert to the movement of your Spirit around me,

and grant divine appointments,

a word, an action, moments, and prayers

to be your hands and feet in this world.

Drench and deluge my heart with your desires and directives,

enable me by your power

to fulfill every good purpose of yours

and every action

stemming from absolute trust and confidence

in your power, wisdom, and goodness.

Bless me to be a blessing Lord,

so that your beauty and light will shine,

and your magnificent Name glorified in this world.

Amen.

Stand Firm

Lord,

please strengthen my heart,

prioritize my day,

let your guidance be clear,

and my path straight.

Bless the work of my hands,

establish peace in my spirit,

let my words and thoughts

please you and grace others.

Protect me from the evil one,

grant me focus and conviction

to stand firm and fight,

using prayers, trust, and hope,

so that I will not lose ground,

but stay true to your vision,

your call for my life.

Let me be aware of your presence,

your love and help,

the hands of your angelic ministers,

the fellowship of the body,

that I stand with an army of warriors,

serving the Lord of hosts,

whose victory is won.

I bless you Lord.

Amen.

My Spirit

Lord,

I praise you for your Spirit that dwells within,

that lights me up from the inside,

with your joy, strength, and comfort.

Your Spirit is a blue flame,

using the pressures of the world,

to mold me, shape me,

taking what was dead and black,

and creating within purity,

surrender, holiness,

a multi-faceted diamond

reflecting your glory alone.

My dying flesh is a holy temple,

home to a spirit of power, love, and sound mind,

one with you.

So I will stand firm today,

not shrink back from demands surrounding,

and press into your presence,

trusting in your goodness,

applying faith to every insurmountable mountain,

and speaking forth and praising your beautiful Name.

You are worthy Lord!

Amen.

Hold On

Lord,

I trust you,

in the middle, the muddle, and the chaos.

I lean on you,

believing you will raise me up

on eagles’ wings in due time.

Grant me your perspective

from a 1,000 leagues up.

Speak to me above the voices

that clamor and echo in the valley.

My faith is in your goodness,

that you will see me through once more,

you are my refuge and my strength.

I will keep on praising you.

Amen.
