Oh Father God we come before you. We bow down in our hearts and minds and souls and we proclaim in One voice and in One accord that You are KING.
You are the Righteous Ruler, You are the Shepherd to Your sheep. You are Light, Power, Love and Truth. We acknowledge You as Lord of our lives, You are the Great I AM. You are the God of the Universe. You guard the gate to Eternity. No one can enter in without Your consent.
We come into Your presence to enter into deeper relationship with You. Meet with us Lord for we long to be still with You and feel Your Presence, Your Power, Your Love, Your Hope and Your Peace. Some of us are weak, some of us are tired, some of us are frustrated, some of us are battling with our emotions, some of us are lonely and hurting and some of us are losing Hope. Some of us are so happy with this season of our lives that we are not drawn closer and deeper in relationship with You for we do not have need. And yet together no matter what season we are in and no matter the depths of our needs humbly we come to You…. humbly we surrender our time and humbly we enter into our secret place of solitude with You. We thank You for this time where we are set apart from everything. We come before You with thanksgiving and praise for who You are in our lives. Our hearts are full of gratitude, for there is none that compares to You.
Obediently we take captive every thought and push aside the distractions of our mind. We acknowledge to You our tendency to wander in our thoughts and we ask for Your forgiveness for that, for we cannot be distracted by our own agendas and thoughts and enter into Your Presence and your rest.
We breathe in the gift of the permeating power of Your presence and we exhale. We let Your love flow through us and around us and in the silence we listen for Your whispers for our hearts…. We enter in…thank you for opening the gates. Thank You for the Cross, thank You for the sacrifice of Your Son Jesus Christ to conquer sin and death on our behalf. We praise Your Holy name. We are listening Lord, speak to us….Bless us with wisdom from Your Word….wisdom from Your heart to ours….we yearn for it, answer our requests.
Forgive us of our sins Lord, wash us clean. We are sinners and yet You made a way for us to be cleansed and Purified. We receive the cleansing of our hearts and minds and souls through the blood of Christ. We receive Your forgiveness, Thank You Lord.
We put on our armor according to Your word in Ephesians 6. We put on our Helmet of Salvation, our Breastplate of Righteousness, our Belt of Truth, our Shoes of Peace, our Shield of Faith and we take up our Sword, Your Holy Word. We proclaim in one voice together as brothers and sisters united in Christ by the blood at Calvary that the earth belongs to You and everything in it. The world and all its people belong to You. For You laid the earths foundation on the seas and built it on the ocean depths. Who may climb the mountain to You, Who may stand in Your Holy Place? Only those whose hands and hearts are pure , who do not worship idols and never tell lies. They will receive Your blessing and have right standing with You, their Savior. They alone may enter Your Presence and worship You, the God of Israel.
Open up, ancient gates. Open up, ancient doors, and let the King of Glory enter. Who is the King of glory? The Lord, Strong and Mighty, the Lord, Invincible in battle.
Open up, ancient gates. Open up ancient doors, and let the King of Glory enter. Who is the King of Glory, the Lord almighty, He is the King of Glory……Psalm 24 A psalm of David….
We pray that You Oh Lord would open up the gates in every area of our lives that we may see You and know You and reflect You. We long to go deeper with You, deeper than we can know or understand within the limits of our minds. Pure Love, intimate relationship is the desire of our hearts, we open the gates of our heart to You. Fill us with Your Presence and Your Power and Your Peace. You have won the victory over sin and death… by Your Strong and Mighty Arm…we have been delivered from our enemies. We praise You and give You thanks..
Be with us this day as we rest, as we think, as we plan, as we walk, as we speak, as we stand, as we work, as we sing, as we edify, as we encourage, as we inspire and as we take captive every thought and bring it into obedience with Your Word. Guard the gates of our minds, guard the doors of our hearts, guard the power of our tongues, guard our lives and the lives of those we love on every front.
You battle for us Lord, we cannot do it in the strength of ourselves. You win the war between the world who longs to influence us and distract us and saturate us with sin, and Your Holy spirit who longs to dwell within us and fill us and use us to reflect the fruit of Your Spirit….love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,gentleness, and self control. We surrender to You, we have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires…. We choose to live and walk in the Spirit. Galatians 5:22-25
Thank You for this day Lord God. We give it to You. We come together in one voice and in one accord and we lift up those that we love and know and care about and even those that we don’t know personally and we intercede for them. Show Your Power and Your Presence and Your Love Oh Lord in Your Divine and Perfect ways in accordance to your plans and purposes and not ours. We trust that You Oh Lord are working all things together for god for Your people and yet we cry out as a united voice in the wilderness on behalf of our Nation and we ask for Grace and Mercy for the USA. Move Holy Spirit across the USA and meet the needs of Your Precious Children and perform miracles on their behalf.
We give You all the Honor and All the Glory for how You are bringing into fruition the fruits of Your Spirit wthin us and working out Your Plans and Purposes for our lives and those we know and love through the power of prayer. We are blessed, blessed indeed and it is in the name and power of Jesus Christ we pray and intercede….amen
