Revival

Abba,

Thank you for your plans and thoughts towards me,

for sharing with me your heart and love,

your joy, hope, beauty, and life.

I praise you for the revival of your Spirit,

setting me free,

my family, friends, and community,

your presence amongst us

making us whole,

bringing salvation, healing, and deliverance,

signs, miracles, and wonders

for all to see,

confirming your Word

that Yeshua reigns and is King of kings.

I praise you for the testimonies to come forth,

to go around the world,

lighting a fire,

searing hearts,

making burning ones

single minded,

whole hearted for you.

Open up your heavens,

pour out your Spirit on all flesh,

bring in the harvest of hungry, thirsty, weary, seeking souls

so that they may find rest in you.

Enable, empower, strengthen, inspire us all in love,

riding on the tsunami of your Spirit

to love hard and love well,

to love for your glory and your Name.

You alone are worthy, you are so good.

I bless you Abba.

Amen.

Spirit Of Life

Lord,

I praise you for your salvation, healing, and deliverance.

You are my Lord and Savior,

your Spirit of life has set me free —

I’m free from all condemnation, judgement, guilt, and shame.

What I couldn’t do in my skin,

with rules, regulations, prescriptions, and protocols,

dead in my spirit and efforts without you,

you did.

I thank you and praise you for becoming my sin,

and the blood sacrifice for my sin offering forever.

I praise you for subduing, condemning all sin in my flesh,

you have overcome the world,

and put in me fresh strength to live by your Spirit,

guided by your power.

You have granted me access to live by your Spirit,

to set my heart and mind upon your will and purpose.

I praise you for the promise of life and peace,

my wholeness and well-being

as my mind is stayed upon you,

and you teach me to walk with you.

I can’t believe your Spirit dwells within me

to guide and direct me,

making me your precious child.

I’m alive eternally because of your righteousness,

your holiness that dwells within me,

all given as a gift out of your wonderous grace to me.

Just as your Spirit raised you from the dead to life,

you revive me, give me new life, and raise up my mortal body by your Spirit.

Lord, by the power of your Spirit,

grant me strength, enable me

to continually put to death all of my thoughts and behavior

outside of your perfect will that brings blessing, protection, and life.

Lead me that I may be blessed,

and called a daughter of God.

I bless your Name.

Amen.

Healing In Relationships

Abba,

I thank you that I may approach your throne room of grace,

and that you hear my cries and petitions.

I bless you for your heart for healing and wholeness in relationships,

and I praise you for your precious fellowship,

Father, Son, and Spirit,

three in one, one in three

dwelling in perfect, beautiful unity.

Abba have mercy on my brothers,

restore the sweet intimacy of their brotherhood from youth.

Melt down the walls that have been built up through the years,

cleanse and heal wounds and trauma that were beyond their control.

Soften hearts from unforgiveness, bitterness, and anger,

and remove the distorted filters given by the enemy.

Please save, heal, and deliver them Lord,

out from the spirit of division, oppression, isolation,

pride, deception, unforgiveness, suspicion, and betrayal.

Release repentance upon their hearts,

a spirit of conviction of sins,

and turn their faces to you,

draw them to yourself,

let them see your Son

and receive His sacrifice, forgiveness, and life.

Let them dwell in unity

by the grace of your Spirit,

in one heart, one mind, one spirit,

under the lordship of your Son,

restored, healed, whole, complete.

Place your hedge of protection around them,

release your angels concerning them,

fight the battle that has raged against their brotherhood.

Abba, you always win,

please destroy the enemy and bring your victory here.

Bless these brothers to receive your full compensation

for all the years the locusts have eaten,

and revive this relationship

with your precious mercies, grace, and life.

Thank you Abba.

Amen.

Prayer For A Friend’s Salvation

Abba Father,

I thank you for my friend’s life,

for sustaining them through their trials and suffering,

for watching over them when they were hurting.

Thank you that you’ve been with them,

cried with them, tenderly watched and care for them

even when they felt utterly alone.

Please bless my friend.

Thank you for softening their heart,

and opening their spirit to acknowledge

there’s something more than this world.

Would you continue to open their eyes,

open their ears,

open and humble their hearts,

so that they may see your Son rightly,

in all His beauty, glory, and tender loving kindness.

Please pour out your Spirit on my friend,

wrap them with your wings of comfort and mercy,

surround them with your grace and blessing,

follow them with your loving kindness

and win them over.

Deluge them with your Spirit and presence,

break them with your love,

and woo their hearts to you.

Please save and deliver them,

let them know their barrenness,

their need for you,

let them know forgiveness for their sins,

from Yeshua,

and salvation in your Son.

Fill them with faith to believe and heal them.

Release the hounds of heaven to pursue them today,

bind every plan or attack of the enemy against them,

remove every thought, pretension, or argument

that places itself against the knowledge of you,

and Abba, be pleased to draw this one into your kingdom.

Save, heal, and deliver my friend,

bring comfort, peace, and rest to their weary soul,

bring compensation for all the enemy has stolen, killed, and destroyed,

and let them know your love,

they they are not alone,

that you are all they’ve ever wanted and needed.

Bless my friend today,

thank you Abba.

Amen.

Comfort In The Morning

Lord,

when I’m overwhelmed and cannot see the light,

when others mock your presence and discourage my trust,

I know that your hand covers me,

that I’m under the darkness and shelter of your wings.

You are my shield and my refuge.

I am nothing, yet Your Spirit and presence within are my glory,

your love cherishes, honors, and values me.

I cry out loud to you,

in wonder that you would receive my words, my voice,

and I weep as you turn your ear,

and answer from your holy mountain.

My sleep is sweet,

Lord you sustain my breath,

I awaken to another day because you sustain me,

you are life itself.

I refuse to be afraid or intimated of my old enemies,

bondages, and evil all around,

Lord I trust you.

Arise, save and deliver me once more!

You confuse my enemies,

they know not their right hand from their left,

you strike their face, shatter their teeth.

You are a defender of the righteous,

protecting and blessing your people.

I praise you Lord,

how beautiful is your salvation,

I bless your Name!

Amen.

Beautiful Salvation

Abba,

I praise your for our Messiah,

who has saved us in mercy into rightful relationship with you.

I praise you that you knew our grief

from the moment of birth,

the loss of our connection to you,

the longing for your love, for things unseen,

for heavenly realms with words lacking to describe,

not knowing what I don’t know,

only feeling utterly lost, alone in a world that lies about you.

And you closed the gap,

sending salvation,

your heart bleeding through your Son,

showing in life, in flesh, in time, on earth,

your glory, beauty, holiness, and love,

witnessed by the world.

I praise you for sending the hounds of heaven

throughout history and time to chase us

down generations and family lines to each individual heart,

the Spirit hovering over all our chaos, rage, and pain,

bringing life,

showing a different way,

lighting the narrow path,

the small, humble steps to your glory and bliss,

rooting us in righteousness,

your hand firmly holding us

that we would no longer be swept away.

I praise you for your mercy, long-suffering, and faithfulness,

your love, and your hand that is mighty to save.

I bless your name, Holy One of Israel,

for bringing salvation to the world,

and seeing me,

a speck in history,

to set apart and make yours.

Thank you Abba, I worship you and love you.

I pray let your glorious light of mercy and truth,

grace and love

shine through me.

Amen.

Marvelous Salvation

God,

You are sovereign and in control,

your voice thunders through the mighty waves,

your power manifests through lightning and thunder storms,

your majesty rests on snowcapped mountaintops, sunrise to sunset,

you are alive and enthroned in the heavens,

interested, intimately involved in all the affairs of man.

In your great mercy, you’ve extended rest

to this broken world of self reliance and rebellion,

so far removed from knowing you, understanding your ways.

We’ve made such a mess Lord,

forgive us.

That you’d call us,

through the voice of your Son,

once a baby, now a grown man,

the eternal once and future Word,

the King of kings of kings,

and save us all, your enemies,

from birth, from corrupted DNA

back to Adam and Eve.

Your love is unfathomable,

I can’t understand why…

only that you are God,

and I am not.

Your ways are higher than mine,

your thoughts than my thoughts.

I humble my heart before you Lord,

and ask that it would be your good pleasure

to reveal yourself to me,

your heart, your love and grace,

please grow me, mature me in your love and ways,

as you heal and help me surrender,

and user me into the fullness of your rest

by your gracious invitation.

Thank you Lord,

you alone are worthy to be praised.

Amen.

You Make Me Yours

Abba,

I bless you for your mercy

that chose me in Messiah.

You plucked this rebellious heart out of the miry clay

and set my feet upon a solid rock.

Your salvation is once and eternal,

wondrous and powerful,

there is no way to freedom outside of your Son.

But even then I thought

to you I’ll come proving my worth and deeds

flexing my own strength,

puffed up and empty in my religious deeds,

Abba, you are long suffering and patient,

so kind to care —

to discipline and chastise those you love.

You pursue me,

break me and remake me,

taking me through the kiln,

I, an orphan, in mistaken identity,

with so much to prove.

You burn away my filthy rags and self righteous deeds

that fool no one but me.

I’m naked and bare

with nothing to bring

but a broken heart.

Your love and delight touch me now,

wretched me,

utterly wounded — lost, confused, and abandoned without you,

and I understand,

your salvation is my miracle every day,

once, today, ongoing, eternal,

just to be yours

an orphan no longer, but your child,

depending on you, leaning on you,

trusting you,

with nothing left to prove,

except that I’ve been redeemed, I’m celebrated, I’m seen.

Thank you,

you are such a good Abba,

salvation, deliverance, and all good things,

come from you alone,

and I bless you with all my heart.

Amen.

The Wondrous Trade

Photo by Gerald Hartl on Unsplash.

Lord,

I’m in awe of what you’ve done,

wholly, fully completing your covenant with me,

knowing the depths of my shame,

walking through the ugly mire of worldly sludge, brokenness, and defilement,

thrust into the pain of sin around you,

accusation, betrayal, and condemnation.

You are the Son of God,

yet you counted yourself as nothing

for love –

love of God, love of the world,

your creation, your handiwork, your poetry,

love of me.

I can’t believe I can come with my broken wares,

my ashes of shame and self-hatred,

dropping them at your feet

with my knees and head prostrate,

realizing I can be free because you paid the price for me.

I praise you for this trade of mercy and grace,

where I can only receive,

humbling my heart to see clearly my emptiness and poverty,

and I’m amazed that for ashes, grief, and despair,

you would give me beauty,

dancing,

and a garment of praise.

You are good God, and I will never forget your kindness,

I am yours, and you are mine.

I bless my Beloved,

Amen.

Beauty From Ashes

Lord of my soul,

you are trustworthy and true,

gentle and glorious,

happy and compassionate,

powerful and merciful,

you cherish the broken pieces I offer you,

and turn ashes from dark memories and grief

into blossoms of life and beauty.

I love your Spirit,

creative, nurturing, and wise,

guiding my healing, my path, my steps

to redemption, restoration, and fullness of life.

Your spirit of prayer stirring the body of Messiah around me,

buoys me up in swells and move me forward.

I am not alone,

but surrounded by love,

a great cloud of witnesses

cheering me on,

encouraging my heart

to run the race until I come home

into your waiting arms.

Let me be faithful to the end O Lord,

trusting in your marvelous, wonderful salvation,

and all that you’ve done for me.

Amen.
