Throne Of Righteousness

Abba,

Your throne is established on justice and righteousness.

You rule and reign over all the heavens and the earth

in glory, majesty, honor, and holiness.

I praise you for your wisdom, power, and love.

I bless your name for you are faithful and true,

not slow in answering the cries of your people.

You have given the earth as an inheritance to your Son,

who is the once and future King,

our coming King with righteousness and judgement

as fire in His eyes.

You see all that is going on, that has happened and will,

Weigh the scales, and judge with mercy and righteousness,

deal with the evil and wicked,

release repentance and have mercy,

remember the cries of the poor, vulnerable, and innocent,

rise up on their behalf,

on behalf of all your people,

show yourself strong.

Expose the schemes and doings of the enemy,

that have gone on for too long under secrecy and corruption

believing and acting as gods, defying your name and existence.

Defend your name, honor your people, and raise up the humble and true.

Humble the proud and arrogant plotting wicked schemes,

put them to shame,

let weapons and hands quick to violence

be confused and frustrated in tracks.

Establish righteous leaders throughout the land,

that freedom, truth, and justice would prevail.

Do it so that all glory would go to you alone,

For your glory O God,

for your name’s sake,

that all the world would see you and tremble,

and bow down and worship the Holy One of Yisrael.

I bless your name, and thank you for what you will do,

and all you have done.

You triumph over all, and the end of the story,

you always win.

Victorious God, I worship you!

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.
