He Meets Me

Lord,

I praise you for your call,

acknowledging you in all my ways,

for you make my paths straight.

Bless me to be a blessing,

so I can love well,

and serve and give with a generous heart.

Most of all,

let me just walk right next to you,

every step of the way,

rejoicing in your love,

all the days of my life.

I love you Lord.

To Know Him

Lord,

help me to trust you,

through to every crevice of my heart,

I invite you,

your presence,

your Spirit,

your will,

your ways,

to lead and guide me.

Let my decisions,

my life, my ways

be in perfect alignment with yours.

I cannot live without your presence,

I falter and fail without your favor and Spirit,

I need you Lord,

bless me to see you,

know you, and love you rightly.

I praise your Name.

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.

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.

Leaving The Past Behind

Lord,

Thank you that my life is in your hands.

I can shake off the burdens of my past,

the regrets and failures,

trusting you will work all things for my good,

and reveal to me the treasures hidden in darkness.

I praise you for your wisdom, discernment,

and counsel dispensed into my spirit,

your molding, pruning, and stretching;

forging me in your continuous flame of love

as I am being created in your image.

I forget what is behind,

you clear my vision for what lies ahead.

No more shadows looming in the future,

or expectations and assumptions I should fulfill,

but surrendered and free, I look to you today,

in this moment,

the gift of your presence with me,

let me run with you.

I bless you Lord.

Amen.

Under His Shelter

Lord,

quiet my spirit,

calm my heart,

help me to sense your presence,

entering into your shelter

to rest secure under the shadow of your wings.

Thank you that I may always approach you,

freely in Messiah,

His blood has paved the way.

Wrap me up in your comfort,

soothe my frazzled nerves

with the anointing of your presence.

The enemy cannot touch me here.

Thank you for your covering,

your protection,

you are my refuge, my safe place.

Watching safely from here,

I see you destroying my enemies,

shielding me from destruction and harm,

keeping me from plague and evil.

You will never abandon me,

all my days,

I will set my heart upon you.

I bless you Lord.

Amen.

Where The Spirit Goes

Lord,

you have set me free,

broken the chains,

released the fetters,

sin and death no longer have a hold on me.

I cling to you,

your Spirit a power, a force,

holy personality moving me forward,

your Word a light,

piercing through the darkness,

beckoning me to come…

be bold, courageous,

have faith.

I’m needing you more

than ever before,

all the way to forever,

please don’t ever let me go.

Let me not shrink back any longer,

but jump on this wild ride,

my heart and life,

sails for your Spirit to fill

wherever, to whomever, you may please.

Bless me, use me,

I say yes and surrender my life to you,

all for your glory.

I praise you Lord.

Amen.

Contentment

Lord,

Draw me back to you,

turn my heart to you once more,

I repent of chasing the idols of my culture,

thinking they would make me happy,

feeding the discontentment of my flesh,

always longing for more.

Help me, teach me, gently train me Lord

to be content in you.

Grant me greater revelation

that I have everything I need in you,

so I can let go,

unclench my fists,

and cease my striving and grabbing.

Forgive me Lord,

have mercy on me,

wash away the deception,

cleanse my heart,

and let me see you rightly.

Return my heart to first love,

and give me the grace

to love you

with all my strength, intelligence, will, and passion once more.

You alone are worthy Lord.

Amen.

Rise Above

Lord,

thank you that I am exactly where you want me to be,

in the place, position, amongst the people

you have called me.

Forgive me Lord

for asking why for so long,

wanting to run and jump ship,

complaining and grumbling,

living myopic,

for man’s approval,

fleeting acknowledgement,

and missing you this whole time.

I praise you when I’m brought low,

my face turns up to seek you,

I praise you when I’m misunderstood, unseen,

you are the God who sees and knows me,

I praise you when I feel unvalued, overlooked,

my work is for the audience of One.

Give me eyes to see you in this world,

to perceive your kingdom

and to declare your heart and your Words.

Help me to rise above in spirit,

and I will bless your Name always.

I praise you Lord.

Amen.

Follow Him

Lord,

I hear your Voice saying,

“Follow Me.”

Grant me the grace to come

without hesitation,

forgetting what is behind

and pressing on towards the goal

of your heavenward call before me.

I praise you for the mustard seed of faith,

thank you for strengthening me as I step out,

parting the sea of chaos and confusion,

allowing me to step on dry land,

and hiding me under your talit.

I’m safe and secure with you,

never let me go,

hold onto me

when my strength fails,

and uphold me

to walk in your ways

every step of the way

knowing your staff guards me

and your rod keeps me close.

I love you Lord.

Amen.
