I thank You Lord that You are a God of reconciliation. We are able to reconcile with You in spite of our sins because of the finished work of Christ. Just like the wall around Jerusalem, our relationships get torn down by the enemy. When You see that it’s time to rebuild You give us Your favor for that relationship just like You did with Nehemiah. You have the master plans to our lives Lord. It is when we look to You that we are given the instructions for the next build. I love Your plans for my life. Even the darkest days have ended up with so much grace that I can only be thankful in the end. You didn’t leave me to die in my grief when my brothers died, when my parents disowned me, or when I was faced with bi-lateral cancers, You were there! You are the Builder of my faith, the Lover of my heart, and the Peace in my storms. There is none like You! I worship the very thought of Your name! Thank You Lord that You have given me this day to build my faith, my friendships, my family, and my love for knowing more of You. In Jesus’ name, AMEN.
Your promises to us are precious and everlasting. You have promised to rebuild us and create us a new. This promise in Isaiah 54:11 says that You will create us into something precious like fine gems. You will give us a new heart that beats only for You, a new mind that thinks only of things that come from You, and a new spirit that only wants to do Your will. You are such an extravagant Father who only wants the best things for us. I praise Your goodness, faithfulness, grace, mercy, and judgement. For even though You judge, it is justly done. Thank you God for taking a sinner like me and giving me a foundation more precious than the finest gems, Jesus Christ. Jesus is higher than all with the name above all names. I will build my foundation on Him. In Jesus name. AMEN.
You are the Great Physician who has the power to heal and forgive our sins. I pray Lord that we as disciples of Christ would follow the example of those who did not quit when a paralytic needed healing. They carried a man who had no use of his legs to the feet of Jesus. To get there they had to find their way through the masses of people who gathered to hear Jesus teach. When they couldn’t find a way through to the house, they persevered and went on top of the house. They went so far as to remove the roof in order that this man be healed. They lowered him through the roof to receive healing from Jesus. Let us be more and more like the people carrying the paralytic. Let us serve others in such a self-less manner that the world can see Your glory. Let us not seek validation or accolades but let the glory go to our God. Show us the paralytic in our neighborhood, our workplace, or our every day places. Whisper to us what You would have us do in Your name and then send us Jesus. Let our service be a Testament to Your goodness and mercy. In Jesus name, AMEN.
When they could not come near Him due to the crowding, they uncovered the roof where He was. When they had broken it open, they let down the bed on which the paralytic lay. When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven you.” Mark 2:4-5 MEV https://bible.com/bible/1171/mrk.2.4-5.MEV
Because You are always with me, I can look fear in the eye and not be shaken. You strengthen me when I falter. You embolden me when I lack courage. I pray Father that Your righteous right hand always be upon me. Lead me in the way You have for me. You are my helper when I can’t figure our the way. Thank You Father for the precious way You love me. I ask today Lord that You would mold me more and more into the person You made me to be. Let me be less of what the world expects and, more like You every day. Let Your will be done in my life. Equip me Jesus for every battle through the victory that is in Your hand. Remind me that because You have already defeated sin and death, I can stand in that victory when I face trials of every kind. Because of Your selfless act on Golgotha I can come boldly before the mercy seat as a child of the most high God. What can man do to me?! Jesus, I ask that You train me up for the battle to come. In return Lord, let me train up others to be victorious through my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Sin and death have no hold on those that You call free. All glory and honor and worship to You God. In Jesus name, AMEN.
Father God Your grace is suffient for everything that I fail in. I thank You Father that Your Word shows us a glimpse of Your grace in Isaiah 40:30-31. You give us hope to hang on to in the waiting. You renew our strength when we feel frail. You take us to new heights of awareness concerning our faith. You allow us to soar! You are there with us always encouraging us to push through. Asking us to trust that You will not let us faint. When my faith starts to fail You I can count on Holy Spirit for new understanding. You see every step I take, every decision I make, and hear every thought I will ever have. YET, You still love me extravagantly. I bow down to my King and You ask me to come closer. Thank You Abba for adopting me into Your family, that I may called a co-heir with Jesus. I will continue to wait on You God. In my weakness You are strong and remind me that Your strength is something I have free access to as Your child. You amaze me! In Jesus name, AMEN.
Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall, but those who wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles, they shall run and not be weary, and they shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:30-31 MEV https://bible.com/bible/1171/isa.40.30-31.MEV
Father God, all the earth rejoices at the sound of Your voice. The trees delight in You and stretch high into the sky to be near You. The birds of the air soar high above the earth in order to sing You a new song every day of their lives. The wild animals trust that You will provide for them. Let humans be the same! I pray that You would change my nature every day that You allow me to wake. That I would take a note from the birds and sing to You from my soul. I depend on You Jesus to provide what my spirit needs. I wait to hear from You Oh God, that I might please You by being obedient. You, Yaweh are worthy of so much more than I know how to give. Yet, You love me as if I had given You the moon and stars. Create in me a new heart today Lord. Wash me from the stain of my sin with the blood of Jesus. Take me to the people You have a word for so that I may offer comfort and encouragement. Let Your living water flow through my life like a tidal wave. Forgive me of any sin knowingly committed or unknown. I will rejoice in today for You have created it! In Jesus name, AMEN.
Father God, Your word says that You have a plan for each of us. That this plan is not for calamity but, instead for a future and a hope. I thank You Abba that my future is in Your hands and for that reason I am blessed indeed. I do not have to fear failure because, I only need to be obedient and listen to Your instructions and my future is full of good things. Father, I lift those in prayer who suffer from depression, anxiety, those who don’t know their true identity, and those who do not learn from their wandering. When we wander it is always away from You so this is the reason people lose track of their purpose. I thank You Lord that because I choose to sit at Your feet, I will always know who I am. My purpose is to worship You. To know You through Your Word and to tell others of Your goodness. I am a spiritual warrior with Jesus as my General. I know that my prayers are collected in heaven and when my bowls are full I can count on You releasing Your power and grace into the prayers I have prayed. Father God, I pray that those who are lost will be found at an increased rate in these days. I pray for a stirring of the Spirit for revival. In Jesus holy name. AMEN
Father God You heard the prayers of Your Son Jesus when he prayed for all believers. Jesus prayed that all believers would be united in Him just as You are in Jesus and He is in You. Jesus prayed that all who should believe in You should be united as one. Let us remember as sons and daughters of the one True God, that You passed on Your glory through Jesus Christ, that we might be glory bearers. For Jesus prayed these words, The glory that you have given me I have given to them, that they may be one even as we are one, John 17:22 ESV We carry Your glory through Jesus Christ. My prayer Lord God is that we would conduct ourselves in such a manner that the world would see Your glory flowing out of Your church. Help us to come together in unity Lord. Let us be peaceable, loving, truthful, honorable, and forgiving. Let us be quick to show mercy and slow to speak. Help us to do a new thing today God. Unite us through Jesus Christ that we might show many more the way of salvation. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen.
Father God I bow to Your supremacy. There is none more powerful than You. You command the wind, the sea, the sun, and the moon. You are the beginning and the end. A triune God who sees all, hears all, knows all, and still choses to forgive us! You alone are worthy of praise and worship. You are the creator of everything and yet You gave us the directive to rule and reign before we fell to sin and gave away the keys to the kingdom. Even then, You were faithful to us who were ignorant of the magnitude of what had just come to be. You made a way for us to still draw near to You in Your Son, Jesus. We are always on Your mind, You care for us. Your ways are still a mystery to us. Thank You for being a good good Father. That we may call You, Abba. We bless Your name and call You, Holy, Holy, Holy! In Jesus’ name, AMEN.
