(Intentional Prayer)

Pray the Scriptures – My Prayer:

fotolia_278408406_largerLord, I thank You for the ability to pile my troubles on Your shoulders, for Your Word says that You are readily accessible so that I may simply unpack my burdens and give them to You. You will take care of me. You will not permit me to slip and fall, for I am godly.

Lord, I long to find that place of release in You, to truly realize and fully understand that I need not wrestle with one single thing because You have my back. You are watching over me. I desire to make this a habit, O God, so that giving everything to You becomes so much a part of my nature that it will be just like walking, talking, and breathing.

In place of the anxiety and worry that has once been my constant companion, which heavily weighed me down and caused me to be in a state of pure exhaustion, God, thank You for deliverance both seen and unseen. I ask You to give me understanding on how to always be the type of person, who in my daily walk, transfers the cares of this life to my Savior, my Redeemer, my way of escape. I will obey your instructions. I will put them into practice with all my heart. Make me walk along the path of Your commands, for that is where my happiness is found.

Each and every day, I want to draw closer to You and to be found connecting with Jesus, my personal Savior. For I can completely and solely trust in Him. He is my way to You.

Heavenly Father, I do not just want to go through the motions, but let Your Spirit be at work within me. I desperately need to encounter the full measure of your presence. I do not want to move from this place until You pour out Your Spirit, releasing a fresh dip of Your anointing, replacing the heaviness upon my shoulders, on this day and every day to come. Help me to experience You without reservation; without fear. Order my steps and let all that I say and do be for Your glory.

When I can release my burdens to the One who will always carry my load, this can be my reality; life as You intended for it to be.

Perform a work within me, O God that allows my love to overflow more and more, so that I will keep on growing in knowledge and understanding. Lord, I acknowledge that I need to understand what really matters, so that I may live a pure and blameless life until the day of Christ’s return. Help me to always be filled with the fruit of Your salvation—the righteous character produced in my life by Jesus Christ—for this will bring much glory and praise to You, my God, providing You with the glory that You are due.

In exchange for my tiredness, I will bring everything to You and will allow You to carry my load, so that I may perform the responsibilities that You have called me to accomplish that leads to glorifying Your holy and righteous name.

Let it be so in this very moment, at this very hour; always and forever!

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