(Intentional Prayer)

Lord, as you work in me, giving me the desire and the power to do what pleases you, provide me with the renewed strength that I need to wait on You. God, I want to cooperate with Your well-constructed and thought out plan for my life. As Elohim, God, Mighty Creator, You have arranged all that I need to get through this life, and in Your perfect sovereign will and kairos moments, El Shaddai, God Almighty, You allow these resources to flow in and out of my life. My connection with You has ameliorated the former condition of my life.

Simply put, God, you have made things better!

El Roi, the God who Sees Me, as I aim to be a light for others that leads directly to You, I want to follow your instructions and do everything without complaining and arguing so that no one can criticize me. Aid me in living a clean life as Your child so that I may shine like a bright light in a world full of evilness. As I read and study Your Word, shower me with the know how to hold firmly to the word of life; then when Christ returns, I will be satisfied that I did not run the race in vain and that my work was not useless.

God use me to encourage others and build them up.

As you commanded, I will be strong and courageous. I will release all fear, for You God are with me wherever I go.

All praise to You, God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. You are my merciful Father and the source of all comfort. 

God use me to comfort others as You have comforted me during my wilderness experience.

As I have endured this season of trouble, God Your faithfulness has shined through the most it ever has, in my entire life. For You are using this time to build within me a vessel that can be used by God.

Lord, within my level of influence, God use me to glorify you.

This I pray in Jesus’ Name. Not my will but Your will be done. For Your Glory! Amen.

Philippians 2:13 (NLT)
13 For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him.
14 Do everything without complaining and arguing, 15 so that no one can criticize you. Live clean, innocent lives as children of God, shining like bright lights in a world full of crooked and perverse people. 16 Hold firmly to the word of life; then, on the day of Christ’s return, I will be proud that I did not run the race in vain and that my work was not useless.

1 Thessalonians 5:11 (NLT)
11 So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing.

Joshua 1:9 (NLT)
This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

2 Corinthians 1:3-6 (NLT)
3 All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. 4 He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us. 5 For the more we suffer for Christ, the more God will shower us with his comfort through Christ. 6 Even when we are weighed down with troubles, it is for your comfort and salvation! For when we ourselves are comforted, we will certainly comfort you. Then you can patiently endure the same things we suffer.

    1. Yes! Powerful! He sees us right where we are and He loves us just the same. Your response has brought tears to my eyes because I am reflecting on who God really is. He is everything that we need Him to be. He uses us for His Glory by seeing us as He made us to be, in His image, and illuminating His goodness through each of us in the gifts He has given to us. Yes! It is so powerful! He is so powerful! Thank you for your response.
