Lord, You are Good, You are Faithful, You are Worthy, You are Powerful, You are Mighty, You are Just and You are Righteous. How blessed we are to call You Father and Friend. Deeply and intimately, You care about each and every detail of our lives. You are at work twenty four seven on our behalf arranging time and circumstance, opportunity and appointments, and moments and miracles that all become the beautiful manifestation of the power of Who You and the ways in which You work.
A beautiful picture You are painting…. perfect in every detail and beyond our ability to see with our human eyes all the ways You attend to every detail to work all things together for good according to your plans and purposes….You love us with an everlasting love.
You are faithful, You already have plan B, C, and D arranged for us before we even begin to realize we missed the signs that marked the trail of Your perfect Plan A for our lives. We thank You and We Praise You that You care so very very deeply for us and attend to the details of our lives so intricately working them all together for good.
We come before Your throne of Grace and Mercy and ask that You would wash us clean of all our thoughts and attitudes and actions and reactions that have not honored and glorified You. We repent of our sins, please forgive us Lord. We turn from our sins and we say, have Your way in us Lord for we long to please You with our thoughts and actions and attitudes. We belong to You, we are Your Precious Children. You called each of us by name and we answered You. Our names are written in the lambs book of life! We rejoice that You chose us to become your sons and daughters and that we shall live in Eternity with You when our time here on earth is complete.
As we rest in the Peace of Your presence and allow Your forgiveness to wash us clean, we rejoice that you are not finished with us yet. You have plans and purposes for our lives that will be made complete. It is Your will that we would partner with You in this journey and yet You are gentle and kind and loving as You allow the will of ourselves to exhaust itself over and over again and patiently You wait for us to turn back to You and yield to Your ways and Your timing and Your good and perfect plans for our lives. Thank You Lord for your patience with us. We rejoice that You love us unconditionally.
Our lives are a journey Lord, You are our leader and You know which trail is best for us to travel on that our lives might be about something greater than ourselves. You know why You put us here Lord and You know the nature and purpose of the gifts You formed in us in our mothers womb. Help us Father to use our gifts as blessings to those that need what You gave us to give away. Whisper to our hearts discernment and wisdom and knowledge that our paths of purpose for You might be efficient and effective and straight.
You know of the dangers that will cross our paths before we even get to them. You know how to keep us safe as we walk and climb and traverse across the plains of the land You have us in. Thank You for Your protection over our lives and the ways You intervene to keep us safe and protected and secure in who we are in You.
Lord, we surrender our paths and purposes to You, we ask that You would indeed whisper to our hearts and impart to us through Your Holy spirit where you want us to stop and stand and wait, where you want us to step, walk, and run, where you want us to look and what you want us to see, how far and how long you want us to stretch our minds and hearts and souls to believe in that which we cannot see, how You want us to partner and prosper with You in giving of our resources, our gifts, our time and our talents that they might make a difference in this world according to Your plans and purposes that You established before You birthed us from our Mother’s womb.
We speak Your word into our lives and ask that You would seal it in our hearts this day….Psalm 37:3-9
Trust in the Lord and do good. Then you will live safely in the land and prosper. Take delight in the Lord and he will give you your heart’s desires. Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust him, and he will help you. He will make your innocents as clear as the dawn and the justice of your cause will shine like the noonday sun. Be still in the presence of the Lord and wait patiently for him to act. Don’t worry about evil people who prosper or fret about their wicked schemes. Stop your anger. Turn from your rage. Do not envy others, it only leads to harm. For the wicked will be destroyed but those who trust in the Lord will posses the land.
Lord we long for this passage of scripture from Your Holy Word to manifest itself in our lives. We ask for Your Holy Spirit to be our strength and our guide. We put on our Armor and we stand ready and prepared praying in the spirit according to your word in Ephesians 6.
Just as we are blessed when our own children are obedient to us so you delight when Your Precious Children are obedient to You. So Lord we put on our helmet of salvation and we acknowledge that Your son Jesus Christ gave His life for us to spend Eternity with You, we put on our breastplate of righteousness and stand strong for righteousness, we put on our belt of truth and remind ourselves that we are wearing the truth of Your Word and are accountable to it with our lives, we put on our shoes of peace and remind ourselves that You have called us to walk in peace with all men, we take up our shield of faith and know that it is our faith in You that protects us from the fiery darts of the enemy and his wicked and evil ways of distracting and taunting us to get us off track from Your perfect plans, we take up the sword of Your Spirit, which is Your Holy Word. We remind ourselves that Your Word is alive and it is our best defense against the enemy and when we read it and study it and speak it we are changed and transformed and empowered and strengthened and with all our hearts and minds and souls we come to believe through faith that Your Word has the power to not only stop the enemy in our own lives but to destroy and divert his attacks on those we know and love and pray for.

In Jesus name we ask and pray together in one voice and in one accord….amen
