Pray the Scriptures – My Prayer:
You are worthy, O Lord my God, to receive glory and honor and power. For You created all things, and they exist because You created what You pleased.
Thank You Lord for finding me pleasing in Your sight. You made me, and know all about me, and when I turn my life over to You and allow You full reign over all, You work in and through me to change me into Your likeness. You have blessed me with everything that I need, which can be found in You, via the great gifts that You have provided to me.
Whatever is good and perfect is a gift coming down to me from You, O God my Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. You never change or cast a shifting shadow. You chose to give birth to me by giving me Your true word. And I, out of all creation, became Your prized possession.
God, Thank You for giving mind-blowing blessings to me.
Lord, because You love me so, You sent, through Your Son Jesus Christ, a new way, a way that I can follow that leads directly to You. I need not wait for another in order to reach out to You. I have been blessed and through my daily interaction with You, through Your Word, I see the changes that You are making within me. Lord, continue to soften my heart. Open my eyes to see You in every situation that comes into my life. Help me to be open to Your way and prepared for the blessings You have come to shower over me.
Lord, my heart is full of gratitude for a better way. For I can expect far greater glory under the new way, now that the Holy Spirit has given me life. This way makes me right with God! This new way remains forever and gives me such confidence, where I can be very bold. Thank You for taking the veil away! For You Lord are the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. So because I have had that veil removed, I can see and reflect the glory of You, my Lord. And You Lord—who is the Spirit—makes me more and more like You as I am changed into Your glorious image.
Who could find another greater, anything better than You, for You send forth Your blessings and You are steadily changing me.
Thank You for a lasting change that is certain and for always blessing me!
This I pray in Jesus’ Name. Not my will but Your will be done. For Your Glory! Amen.

Revelation 4:11 (NLT)
“You are worthy, O Lord our God, to receive glory and honor and power. For you created all things, and they exist because you created what you pleased.”
James 1:17-18 (NLT)
17 Whatever is good and perfect is a gift coming down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. He never changes or casts a shifting shadow. 18 He chose to give birth to us by giving us his true word. And we, out of all creation, became his prized possession.
2 Corinthians 3:7-18 (NLT)
7 The old way, with laws etched in stone, led to death, though it began with such glory that the people of Israel could not bear to look at Moses’ face. For his face shone with the glory of God, even though the brightness was already fading away. 8 Shouldn’t we expect far greater glory under the new way, now that the Holy Spirit is giving life? 9 If the old way, which brings condemnation, was glorious, how much more glorious is the new way, which makes us right with God! 10 In fact, that first glory was not glorious at all compared with the overwhelming glory of the new way. 11 So if the old way, which has been replaced, was glorious, how much more glorious is the new, which remains forever! 12 Since this new way gives us such confidence, we can be very bold. 13 We are not like Moses, who put a veil over his face so the people of Israel would not see the glory, even though it was destined to fade away. 14 But the people’s minds were hardened, and to this day whenever the old covenant is being read, the same veil covers their minds so they cannot understand the truth. And this veil can be removed only by believing in Christ. 15 Yes, even today when they read Moses’ writings, their hearts are covered with that veil, and they do not understand. 16 But whenever someone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. 17 For the Lord is the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 18 So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord—who is the Spirit—makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image.
2 Samuel 22:1-4 (NLT)
1 David sang this song to the Lord on the day the Lord rescued him from all his enemies and from Saul. 2 He sang: “The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my savior; 3 my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety. He is my refuge, my savior, the one who saves me from violence. 4 I called on the Lord, who is worthy of praise, and he saved me from my enemies.
