(Intentional Prayer)

Pray the Scriptures – My Prayer:

Lord, no matter the successes I accomplish during my time here on earth, I am conscious of the fact that I’m nothing without You. As was when You chose to create me in Your likeness, You continuously provide the air that I need to breathe, and permit the steps that I am to take. In Your tireless love for me, You have given me life with the intention of abundance; for You sent Your Son that I may have life and have it to the full. A rich and satisfying life, indeed; I won’t forget. I will ponder this.

Lord, I cannot do anything within my own strength. It is not by force (power) nor by strength, but by Your Spirit. Although I cannot accomplish anything in Your name utilizing my own strength; miraculously, by the power of Your Spirit, all things can be so.

I can do everything through Christ who gives me strength.

Help me to cooperate with Your purpose and plan for me, so that You can do great things using my life as Your instrument of hope. When You desire to pour into me, so that I may have what is needed to be a light in dark places, help me to be still and know that You are God. I will hear Your voice and follow thee.

I will let God be God.

You are a great God and You do great things! There are no limits with You! 

As I search for You and take hold of Your overflowing wisdom, I can have confidence in Your Word, because all Scripture is inspired by You. It is useful to teach me what is true and to make me realize what is wrong in my life. The correction it provides me when I am wrong, teaches me to do what is right.

God use it to prepare and equip me to do every good work, because without You, I am nothing, but with You, the joy of the Lord is my strength.

Through Your mighty power at work within me, You are able to accomplish infinitely more than I might ask or think; more than I could ever imagine. To You be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen!

As I refine my faithfulness with regard to my Savior, my King, I am assured that You will take care of the rest. I’m nothing without You, but complete with You, through Christ Jesus.

I am more than enough, because You are the God who is enough. I won’t look back. I will finish the process. With You, I have everything I need.

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