(Intentional Prayer)

Pray the Scriptures – My Prayer:

To You, O Lord, I give thanks with all my heart; I will sing Your praises. I bow before Your holy Temple as I worship. I praise Your name for Your unfailing love and faithfulness; for Your promises are backed by all the honor of Your name. As soon as I pray, You answer me; You encourage me by giving me strength.

Your love is so encompassing. Your presence is felt all over me.

Yahweh Yireh, The Lord Will Provide, I know it to be a fact that prayer changes things. It not only changes things, but it changes me. When I felt stuck in my patterns of behavior that lead me away from You, You allowed me to open my heart and my mouth to the God who did, can, and will deliver me.

Your provision is offered to all who will believe.

As I am in need of deliverance from myself; my self-doubt, my worries, and anxious thoughts, Lord change me and make me more like You. Forgetting my limitations and trusting in Your Word, You provide healing and total deliverance, which I accept without hesitation or fear.

In my weakness, the Holy Spirit is accessible to help me.

There are times when I don’t know what, You, God wants me to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for me with groanings that cannot be expressed in words. And You, my heavenly Father, who knows all hearts, who knows my heart, knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads for me as a believer in harmony with Your own will.

Your Word is a healing balm. In it, I will seek and find You.

In the split second where I stop looking at myself and what I am not capable of, I am then motivated to look ahead and know that I am not doing anything on my own, but it is You that’s bringing about the change that I need. In You I am able to entrust every aspect of my life and leave it all in Your capable and mighty hands. You provide me with the desire to draw strength from the Creator of all, Elohim.

Lord, in me, bring about the change that I so desperately need. Let Your Word feel my memories. Let me retain these prayers of truth. Help me to rest in You and know that it is well with my soul.

As the storms of life attempt to destroy what You have built within me, calm the storms as I fall into Your arms of rest. For You are my hiding place; You protect me from trouble. You surround me with songs of victory. You Lord said, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you.”

Through prayer, the darkness changes to light. My broken-heart is soon overjoyed. My fear is replaced with hope. It never fails; You are watching over me. My life is refashioned and I am refined and made new in Christ Jesus, because Your healing Words prayed over my life provides the change within me.

A wonderful change has come over me! Thank You, Lord. Prayer changes things.

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