(Intentional Prayer)

Pray the Scriptures – My Prayer:


Lord, as I sit in the room with the Holy Spirit as my instructor, first I ask that You wipe the slate clean. Anything that is not like You, O Lord, I ask You to erase the board and give me a fresh start in You. Help me to be alert and to focus on the lessons that I must learn. Help me to rise early to hear what the Holy Spirit has to speak to me.

I rise early, before the sun is up; I cry out for help and put my hope in Your words.

As I study Your Word each day, teach me, for I am eager to learn. I am attentive to Your voice and am confident that through Your teaching, I will pass the test. Your Word, O Lord, when You send it out, it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all You want it to, and it will prosper everywhere You send it.

Your Word, it brings forth life!

God, Your Word speaks to me as I receive and take in all that the Holy Spirit imparts. Your Holy Spirit gives me revelation, illumination, and teaches me how to apply it to the matters of my life. For I have received the Holy Spirit, and He lives within me, so I don’t need anyone to teach me what is true. For the Spirit teaches me everything I need to know, and what He teaches is true—it is not a lie. Just as He has taught me, I will remain in fellowship with Christ.

Lord, thank You for Your living and active Word. I thank You, my wonderful Savior, that when I read Your Word, You speak to me. For Jesus promised that when, You my Heavenly Father, sent the Advocate as His representative—that is, the Holy Spirit—He would teach me everything. Through the direction and instruction of the Holy Spirit, You show me myself. You give me hope for a better today and a brighter, productive, and successful future. When I take hold of the truth’s that are being taught and apply them to the circumstances that show up within my day, I am able to implement the lesson’s that I’ve learned.

With gratitude pouring from my thankful heart, I am relishing in the Holy Spirit that guides me to all truth and teaches me all. When I forget and the pop-quiz of life is sitting upon the desk of my heart, needing immediate attention and right response, the Holy Spirit is there to bring to my remembrance today’s lesson, which allows me to exercise my faith and to put into practice these truth’s. As a result of Your great love toward me as Your dear child, I do not have to guess or wonder.

Thank You for providing this right way of learning and for the lessons that authentically provide the spiritual growth in me.

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

147 I rise early, before the sun is up;
I cry out for help and put my hope in your words.

Isaiah 55:10-11 (NLT)
10 “The rain and snow come down from the heavens
and stay on the ground to water the earth.
They cause the grain to grow,
producing seed for the farmer
and bread for the hungry.
11 It is the same with my word.
I send it out, and it always produces fruit.
It will accomplish all I want it to,
and it will prosper everywhere I send it.

1 John 2:27 (NLT)
27 But you have received the Holy Spirit, and he lives within you, so you don’t need anyone to teach you what is true. For the Spirit teaches you everything you need to know, and what he teaches is true—it is not a lie. So just as he has taught you, remain in fellowship with Christ.

John 14:26 (NLT)
26 But when the Father sends the Advocate as my representative—that is, the Holy Spirit—he will teach you everything and will remind you of everything I have told you.
