(Intentional Prayer)

Pray the Scriptures – My Prayer:

fotolia_161561795_larger

Lord, when walls that have surrounded my heart crumble and fall just at the mention of Your name, every beat of my heart is equalized and it rejoices over all that I’ve found in You.

El Shaddai, God Almighty, through Your promised Word, I have come into the knowledge that when my faith is tested, my endurance has a chance to grow. In Your ultimate wisdom, You have allowed the shaking in my life to bring forth the testing of my faith, to draw me closer into Your presence.

Thank You Lord for the tests that You have allowed that have strengthened my relationship with You.

During this life, which is preparing me for the ultimate culmination of my tests being manifested in a beautiful melody, help me to feel Your love and not become overly frustrated within the process. For within these various levels of testing, You have the opportunity to tune every off key area of my life, in order to bring harmony where the song of my heart has faded in discord.

You have given me a new song to sing, a hymn of praise to You God. Many will see what You have done and be amazed. They will put their trust in the Lord.

When I earnestly seek after You, aid me in hearing Your voice above the crowd of chatter that comes to distract and disturb me. 

In Your Word is where I obtain wisdom, life, light, hope and peace. For Your commands make me wiser than my enemies, for they are my constant guide.

I have suffered much, O Lord; restore my life again as You promised. The entrance and unfolding of Your words give light; their unfolding gives understanding (discernment and comprehension) to the simple. I rise early, before the sun is up; I cry out for help and put my hope in Your words.

Lord, as I connect and fall in love with You more and more each day, I find myself being obedient to Your commands. As You reveal Your path for me, I learn that those who love Your instructions have great peace and do not stumble. Oh, how I long for Your rescue, Lord, so I have obeyed Your commands.

As You finish the uniquely crafted composition of my life, let Your glory sound forth above the noise of the enemy.

Check 1, Check 2, Check 3…in all things I must give thanks, so thank You for testing me.

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