fotolia_279778782_larger

Lord, I have made up in my mind that I want it. I want ALL that You have for me. Show me the way to go. Show me the steps to take. Your truth and wisdom are what I seek.

God, Your truth stands firm like a foundation stone with this inscription: “The Lord knows those who are his,” and “All who belong to the Lord must turn away from evil.”

Thank You Lord for making me Your very own. For I belong to You.

When You chose me, this forever changed the course of my life, but I know that I must be willing to accept it and turn away from every evil thing, making sure that I am always facing You.

Lord, help me to turn all of my wounds into wisdom by continuing to seek You in Your Word. This guides me into all truth. I pray for wisdom in the things of this world so that I may choose wisely in my dealings and interactions with others, and so that I will align myself with all of Your commands so that Your promised blessings will be mine.

You are so faithful, for Your Word says that You will be my God throughout my lifetime— until my hair is white with age. You made me, and will care for me. You will carry me along and save me.

Thank You, my gracious Lord for saving me! I want eternal life with You; so, I’ll turn from all wickedness to walk in Your goodness, thankfully rejoicing in the understanding that I am made righteous through Your Son, Jesus Christ.

Lord, I want to work willingly at whatever I do, as though I am working for You Lord rather than for people. I will remember that the Lord will give me an inheritance as my reward, and that the Master I am serving is Christ.

Lord, I opt not to focus on people but to focus on You, the only one who offers me anything worth having. I want it, ALL that is part of my inheritance, my great reward; so, I’ll turn to You.

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

    (Intentional Prayer) Pray the Scriptures: Lord, I come to you today as a reminder to myself that I have authority through Jesus Christ. I use Your mighty weapons, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments. I destroy every proud obstacle that keeps me from knowing You. I capture my rebellious thoughts and teach them to obey Christ. Any negative thoughts or thoughts that are not pleasing to You, O Lord, I cast them out in Jesus’ name. They have no authority over me, but I have authority through Jesus Christ. I am free. I am delivered. I am made whole.

Help me to recognize when the intent is not to cause these feelings to emerge within, but that a greater purpose and good is the end result.
