Prayer

Dearest loving Abba Yahweh, thank You for being on my side today. Thank You for equipping and empowering me to accomplish everything You’ve called me to. Give me a revelation of Your love for me today. Thank You for every good and perfect gift that You’ve given to my life. I open myself to the good things You have for my future. I believe and receive every blessing You have prepared for me. Today I choose to believe You and increase my capacity to receive. I let go of limited thinking and old mindsets. I set my focus on Your Word and open myself to everything You have in store for me. Thank You for another day to see Your goodness in my life. Today, I take off the limits and embrace the dreams You’ve placed in my heart. Empower me by Your Spirit to fulfill Your plan for me.

Dear Father, I have sinned over and over again. And yet, Your love for me and utter forgiveness has been unbelievable. I thank You for accepting me and continuing to guide and direct my paths. Lord, I pray that You will open my eyes to all the opportunities to do good around me. I know that You have created me to do good. I know that it is Your desire, yet I need You to guide me. Direct me to someone who needs what I have. Someone who will benefit from the way you have wired me. Guide me, then empower me to do the good that You have prepared in advance for me to do. Help me see the needs of others the way You do. Help me to respond in a way that honors you.

Help me to make resolutions that will honor You and bring Your blessings to me and my family. Help my family to decide to do the things which will draw us closer to You and closer to one another. Help us to pray more diligently, serve You more faithfully, and praise You more joyfully. Help me, Lord, to take up my cross each day and follow you. May I follow you at work, at church, and at home. May I follow you when I’m with my friends and when I’m shopping at the grocery store. May I follow you when I spend my money and when I give it away. O Lord, help me to give up my life to you so that I might receive your abundant, full, fruitful life in return. I pray in Your Son’s precious name. Amen

Bible Promise of the Day

Prayer Quote of the day

To say prayers in a decent, delicate way is not heavy work. But to pray really, to pray till hell feels the ponderous stroke, to pray till the iron gates of difficulty are opened, till the mountains of obstacles are removed, till the mists are exhaled and the clouds are lifted, and the sunshine of a cloudless day brightens-this is hard work, but it is God’s work, and man’s best labor.
