April 30: A Declaration of Joy

Omniscient Father, as the Body of Christ, we thank You for being our God. We thank You for saving us through the sacrifice of Your Son, our Lord, Jesus Christ. We thank You for sending the Holy Spirit to instruct, guide, teach and comfort us. Thank You, Holy Spirit, for empowering us and filling our lives with joy. Hallel YAH! Awesome Father, You are great and greatly to be praised. You are to be feared above all gods. The earth is Yours and everything in it; the world and all its people belong to You. You laid the earth’s foundation on the seas and built it on the ocean depths. Lord, Your works are wonderful. You are our help and shield. In You, do our hearts rejoice because we trust in Your holy Name. Let Your unfailing love continue to surround us Lord, for our hope is in You alone.
Wonderful Father, we declare as the Body of Christ, that as we keep the Your commands and abide in Your love; Your joy will remain in us and our joy will overflow. Today, we confess that we will count it all joy when we fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of our faith produces patience. We will let patience have its perfect work in us so that we may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. Lord, we confess that instead of shame and dishonor; we will enjoy a double share of honor. We boldly declare that in this land we possess a double portion of prosperity and everlasting joy is ours.
These are the three things that I am joyful for:
Righteous Father, we ask You to bless all members of the Body of Christ. Holy Spirit, please instruct us in our relationships, ministries, careers and finances. Make our hearts strong, blameless, and holy as we stand before God, our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all His holy people. Remind us daily of the Word which tells us that a cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength. Holy Spirit, please help each of us to develop a joyful disposition. Help us all to enjoy life and laugh more.
Loving Father, forgive us for any acts of sinfulness, including strife, discord, jealousy, rivalries, gossip and any abuse of power. Forgive us for at times not being joyful, being that Your joy is our strength. Father, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed). Holy Spirit, remind us all of those we need to forgive and help us to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive. As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).” Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)
Holy Spirit, help us all not to yield to temptation; but deliver us from the evil one.
Immortal Lord, You are the blessed and only Almighty God. You are the King of kings, and the Lord of lords. You alone can never die. You live in light so brilliant that no human can approach You. No human eye has ever seen You, nor ever will. To You belongs all honor and power forever and ever. In Jesus’ Name, Amen

April 29: A Prayer for Emotional Healing for Those Who Are Overcoming the Death of a Loved One

Redeeming Father, we thank You for the emotional healing of those whose loved one(s) have gone on to be with You.  Thank You for the impact that they had on their lives.  Thank You, Jesus, for leaving them with a gift – Your peace of mind and heart.  We are thankful to You and we bless Your Name.  Father, we give thanks to You and proclaim Your greatness. The whole world shall know what You have done. We will sing praises to You.  We will tell every one of Your wonderful deeds.  You are our merciful Father and the source of all comfort.  We will sing to You as long as we live. We will praise You to our last breath!

Merciful Father, we decree emotional healing for those who are overcoming the death of a loved one. Although they are grieving, they will put their hope in You, God! They will praise You again – as their Savior and their God!  Father, they will trust Your Word.  We declare that You are with them; they will not be discouraged, for You are their God. Your Word says that You will strengthen them and help them. You will hold them up with Your victorious right hand. Your Name, Lord, is a strong fortress; the Godly run to You and are safe. We decree that bereavement will last only for a short time and joy will replace sorrow.

Holy Spirit, help me to become more sensitive to the needs of those around me who are in mourning and show me how I can be an encouragement to them:

 

 

 

Holy Spirit, when we see our brother or sister mourning the death of a loved one, help us to be compassionate, but also to encourage him or her with God’s Word of hope and peace. Bring scriptures to our remembrance that will help to bring solace to our brother or sister.  Remind us to care for the physical needs of those who are in mourning, with food, transportation, child care or any other material thing that may be needed. Help us to be patient and to not be insensitive to their pain. Holy Spirit, when we are grieving as well, comfort us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others.

Gracious Father, when others are grieving, forgive us for being impatient as time goes on after a death. Forgive us when we utter unkind words, making light of someone else’s pain at the death of a loved one. Forgive us for not taking care of the physical or emotional needs of others who have suffered loss. Father, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed). Holy Spirit, remind those who are overcoming the death of a loved one of those they need to forgive and help them to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive.  As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).”  Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

Holy Spirit, help us all not to yield to temptation; but deliver us from the evil one.

Almighty God, the heavens proclaim Your glory! The skies display Your craftsmanship. Day after day they continue to speak; night after night, they make You known. They speak without a sound or word; their voice is never heard, yet their message has gone throughout the earth, and their words to all the world. In Jesus’ Name, Amen!

April 28: A Declaration of Kingdom Financial Blessings

Heavenly Father, we thank You for Your eternal love and unmerited grace.  We thank You for Your love for us that never ceases and Your mercy which never comes to an end.  Your mercies are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.  Thank You, Father, for being our strength, our shield, our provider and our Savior. You are great and You do wondrous things.  You are God alone.  Lord, You are in Your Holy temple; You are on Your heavenly throne.  To You, O God do we give thanks.  Yes, to You do we give thanks.  We extol You, our God, O King; and we bless Your Name forever and ever.

Righteous Father, as Kingdom citizens, it is Your will that we excel in the area of our finances.  We recognize that the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil.  Therefore, we will earn, save, spend and invest money in obedience to Your perfect plan for our lives and our families.  We confess that as You bring financial blessings into our lives, we will remember that it is You who gives us the power to get wealth so that the covenant which You swore to our fathers will be established and we will be positioned as instruments to build Your Kingdom.  Father, we decree that all that we set our hands to do is blessed because You have commanded blessings on our storehouses, including savings, investments and retirement accounts.  Lord, as Your blessings overtake us, we will be able to lend money to many and not have to borrow from anyone.  We confess that as we bring our tithes and offerings into Your house, we are expecting You to pour out blessings that we will not have room to receive and You will rebuke the devourer for our sakes.  Lord, because we will be faithful stewards of Your financial blessings, we expect You to confirm Your Word and make us rulers over abundant wealth.

Holy Spirit, show me what I need to do so that I can be a better steward of the resources I have been blessed with:

 

 

Holy Spirit, we ask that You shift our focus from spending to saving and from consuming our income to building wealth.  Help the members of the Body of Christ to bind mercy and truth around our necks and write them on our hearts; causing us to have favor in Your sight and in the sight of man.   Lord, help us to study Your Word, to meditate on it day and night and observe to do the things written within it so that we may make our way prosperous and have good success.  Holy Spirit, help us to build business and personal relationships with other Christians.  Help us to begin to love people and use money, rather than loving money and using people.  We pray for a breaking of old mindsets and generational curses of poverty and lack within the families in the Body of Christ.

Forgiving Father, forgive us for our sins.  Forgive us for repeating patterns of financial failures such as living beyond our means and misusing credit cards.  Forgive those in the Body of Christ and our communities for our heavy dependence on payday loan outlets and pawn shops.  Forgive us for failing to develop financial plans that include debt reduction, savings and investments.  Father, forgive us for walking by sight, rather than walking in faith. Forgive many of us for entertaining thoughts that we are supposed to have the most of the worst and the least of the best.  Forgive those in our congregation who have refused to make court-ordered child support payments.  Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed).  Holy Spirit, remind us all of those we need to forgive and help us to be quick to forgive.  (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive.  As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).”  Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

Holy Spirit, help us all to not yield to temptation; but deliver us from the evil one.

Yours, Almighty God, is the power and the glory.  Yours, O Lord, is the victory and the majesty.  All that is in heaven and earth is Yours.  Yours is the Kingdom, O Lord, and You are exalted as head over all.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

April 27: A Prayer for Persons Who Have Not Accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord (Leader) and Savior (Forgiver)

Magnificent Father, we thank You for the gift of salvation through Your Son, Jesus Christ. Thank You for enlightening our hearts to say “yes” to You when You called us.  Thank You for deciding in advance to adopt us into Your family by bringing us to You through the Lord Jesus.  Lord, You are very great.  We will praise You, Lord, with all that we are and we will never forget the good things You have done for us. You are the One who forgives all our sins, heals us from diseases, redeems us from death, and crowns us with love and tender mercies. We honor You as our Lord and Savior.  Your majestic Name fills the earth.  Your glory is higher than the heavens!

Heavenly Father, we declare that Your Word, as it is spoken, will move swiftly through the earth and save the lost.  We confess that as the Gospel is shared, Your Word will be operative in the lives of those persons who have not accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord (Leader) and Savior (Forgiver). We confess that as people confess with their mouths, the Lord Jesus, and believe in their hearts that You raised Him from the dead, they will be saved.  Father, they will know the Truth, and the Truth will set them free.  As for me, I confess my sins and I am confident that You are faithful and just to forgive me of my sins and will cleanse me from all unrighteousness.  Lord, I submit to You, my spirit, soul, and body.  I confess that in Jesus Christ, I have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace.

List the people that you know who have not accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.  Ask the Holy Spirit for the wisdom to witness to them.  Trust Him to give you the courage to approach them and the words to say to them.

Eternal Father, since the harvest is plentiful, please send laborers to proclaim Your Word of salvation to those who have not accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.  Father, as Your Word goes forth, touch the hearts of the unsaved to receive it.  Circumcise the heart of every man, woman, boy, and girl and draw them to You. Lord, surround them with the counsel of the Godly so that they are washed in the water of Your Word; putting away the old man and putting on the new.  Holy Spirit, please give me the courage and boldness to witness to the unsaved.  Help me to live in such a way that the light of Christ is seen in my private and public life.

Holy Father, forgive the unsaved for not acknowledging You or Your Son.  Forgive those for disobedience, hatred, rebellion, murder, idolatry, homosexuality, greed, racism, adultery, fornication, injustice, violence, and rejection of Your Gospel.  Please have mercy upon them and extend Your grace towards them.  Lord, forgive us as the Body of Christ for not sharing Jesus and the Gospel with more people.  Forgive me for at times being timid and reserved about one of the greatest miracles known to humankind.  Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed).  Holy Spirit, remind us all of those we need to forgive and help us to be quick to forgive.  As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive.  As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).”  Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

Holy Spirit, help us all to not yield to temptation; but deliver us from the evil one.

Blessed Lord, You are the King of glory.  You are the Lord of hosts.  You are worthy to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, and by Your will they exist and were created.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

April 26: A Prayer of Preparation for the Spring Feasts

Amazing Father, we thank You for preparing us for the Spring Feasts.  Thank You for Passover, the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the Feast of Firstfruits and Pentecost.  Thank You for drawing us into a more intimate relationship with You through these feasts.  We will sing songs of joy to You.  We will sing a new song of praise to You and play skillfully on the harp.  Your Word, Lord, holds true and we can trust everything that You do.  You love whatever is just and good; Your unfailing love fills the earth.  We put our hope in You, Lord.  You are our help and our shield.  In You do our hearts rejoice, for we trust in Your holy Name.  Let Your unfailing love surround us, Lord, for our hope is in You alone.

Holy Father, You loved the world so much that You gave Your only begotten Son as Redeemer, sacrificed on the altar of the cross, freeing all believers from slavery to sin.  As we come together during the springtime of the year, we will prepare ourselves to meet with You to celebrate the Passover, the Festival of Unleavened Bread and the Celebration of the Firstfruits. We will examine ourselves and confess our sins to You, that we may be forgiven. In our homes, we and our families vow to serve You alone. We will carefully examine our homes, just as we examine ourselves, to be certain that there is no unclean thing that would separate us from Your presence. As You have decreed, we will remove all yeast from our homes as we prepare to celebrate the Festival of Unleavened Bread.  At the same time, we will remove all wickedness from our hearts so that we can come before You with clean hands.

List  the things you need to do in preparation for the Spring Feasts:

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Holy Spirit, as we study God’s Word, instruct us in preparing for the Spring Feasts. Bring to our remembrance areas in our lives that need to be transformed in order to be cleansed of sin or idolatry. Help us to develop a greater appreciation for the blessings the Father has given us.  Father, bless our families and enlarge our territories so that we may have even more to bring back into Your Kingdom. Help us to share this wonderful time with our friends and family members and use it as a tool to witness Your love and salvation to the lost.

Redeeming Father, forgive us corporately and individually for our sins. Forgive us for holding on to our old ways and for being reluctant to follow Your precepts which are new to us. Forgive those who choose not to celebrate Your festivals or those who are unable or unwilling to bring offerings to You.  Forgive us for being timid and afraid to share the information about Your festivals with our friends, family members and co-workers.  Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed).  Holy Spirit, remind us all of those we need to forgive and help us to be quick to forgive.  As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive.  As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).”  Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

Holy Spirit, help us all to not yield to temptation; but deliver us from the evil one.

Almighty King, You created the heavens and stretched them out.  You created the earth and everything in it.  You give breath to everyone, life to everyone who walks the earth.  You alone are the Lord!  You will not give Your glory to anyone else, nor will You share Your praise with carved idols.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

April 24: A Declaration of Kingdom Financial Giving

Honorable Father, we thank You for the Spring Feasts. Thank You for this special time to commune with You.  Thank You for providing for our families so that we can bring an offering back to You.  Lord, the heavens proclaim Your glory and the skies display Your craftsmanship. Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make Your presence known.  We praise You, our Rock.  Be exalted, the God of our salvation!   We will praise You among the nations and sing praises to Your Name!  Because of You, Lord, we are filled with laughter, and we sing for joy.  Others have said what amazing things the Lord has done for them.  Yes, You, Lord, have done amazing things for our Church Family!   What joy we have experienced with You!

Loving Father, You have set the appointed times for us to celebrate and worship You in the spring.  As a part of the celebration, Your Word instructs us to bring offerings as a sign of our love and devotion to You.  As a Church Family, we will obey Your Word and we look forward to giving of our best.  We will give with cheerful hearts to You during the Spring Feasts.  As we give, we trust that according to Your Word, You will generously provide all that we need.  Then, we will always have everything we need and have plenty left over to share with others.  We confess that we will trust You with our finances and will give as we are led by the Holy Spirit.

Holy Spirit, my Unleavened Bread and Firstfruits offerings will be:

 

 

 

 

Holy Spirit, please help us to yield our hearts to You as You lead and direct us in our giving during the Spring Feasts.  Help us to be willing and generous in our giving and not hesitant or stingy.  Lord, You said that if we honored Your feasts, You would increase our harvest.  Father, touch the financial seeds that we have planted and cause them to grow. Bless us with increase so that we will have a tremendous offering to give to You during this special time.  Increase our faith to trust You for unseen and miraculous financial blessings.  For those in need of financial resurrection, bless their finances.  Father, bless those who do not have anything to give with a miraculous offering.  Help our Church Family to honor You with disciplined financial stewardship.    Father, show us Your glory as we give our offerings during the Spring Feasts and please accept them as a sign of our love and devotion to You.

Loving Father, forgive us when we have not brought our tithes and offerings to You.  Forgive our hesitancy when we are asked to give to You.  Forgive those who have created financial situations in their lives that are so desperately in need of repair that they are not positioned to give freely during the feasts.  Forgive all of us for any selfishness or greed.  Remind us of those that we owe so that we may repay our debts.  Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed).  Holy Spirit, remind us all of those we need to forgive and help us to be quick to forgive.  As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive.

Holy Spirit, help us to not yield to temptation; but deliver us from the evil one.

Lord God, the Almighty, You are the one who is and who always was.  You have assumed Your great power and have begun to reign.  All glory belongs to You, who alone is God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord.  All glory, majesty, power, and authority are Yours before all time, in the present, and beyond all time!  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

April 23: A Prayer of Thanksgiving for Jesus Christ, our Passover Lamb

Our Father God, we thank You for loving us so much that You gave Your one and only Son (Jesus, our Passover Lamb), so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. We love and adore You. Lord Jesus, thank You for sacrificing Your life on the cross for our sins.  Because of You, we can now stand before You as pure, holy, and justified. We also thank You for sending the Holy Spirit, our Comforter.  Holy Spirit, thank You for filling us with love, fruit, gifts and power. We exalt You, our God and King. We praise Your Name forever and ever. Your awe-inspiring deeds will be on our tongue. We will proclaim Your greatness. Everyone will share the story of Your wonderful goodness. We will sing with joy about Your righteousness.

Jesus, our Bread of Life, we are grateful that You have given us peace with God. Because of Your obedience and sacrifice there is no longer a void between us and our Heavenly Father. Lord, You were wounded for our transgressions. You were bruised for our iniquities. The chastisement of our peace was upon You, and by Your stripes we are healed. Hallel YAH! When we were utterly helpless, You came at just the right time and died for us sinners. You are the King of kings and Lord of lords. A passover lamb was sacrificed and its blood was used as a sign of redemption from death for the children of Israel. That is what God made You to be for us – our Passover Lamb. We will forever praise and honor You. Because of You, we now have eternal life. We proclaim that You, have the highest place of honor. Your Name is above all other names. At Your Name every knee will bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue will confess that You are Lord. Thank You for redeeming us and placing the Kingdom of God within us.

Who is Jesus Christ to you? What will you do to become more like Him?

 

 

 

 

Holy Spirit, help us to reflect daily on the grace of God through the ministry of Jesus.  Help us to stay focused on Kingdom business instead of worldly desires, and selfish cares and concerns. Help us to regard Jesus’ Name as holy. Help us to keep renewing our minds daily until the image of Christ is formed on the inside of us.  Especially, at this appointed time, help us to show great reverence for the suffering, the shame, and the sacrifice of our Lord. And keep us humbled in knowing that were it not for Jesus Christ, we would have no hope at all.

Loving Father, forgive us for at times disregarding the sacrifice the Lord Jesus made to secure our freedom. Forgive us for taking unfair advantage of that freedom. Forgive those of us for failing to observe communion with You and with our families. Forgive us for not teaching our children to honor the Lord Jesus. Forgive us for making excuses for our disobedience in doing our part to fulfill the Great Commission.  Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed). Holy Spirit, remind us all of those we need to forgive and help us to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive. As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).” Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

Holy Spirit, help us all to not yield to temptation; but deliver us from the evil one.

Your throne, O God, endures forever and ever. You rule with a scepter of justice. You are the Lord, our Redeemer and Creator, who made all things. You alone stretched out the heavens. You reign forever, executing judgment from Your throne. In Jesus’ Name, Amen!

April 22: A Prayer of Thanksgiving for Passover

Heavenly Father, thank You for loving us so much that You wouldn’t leave us in our sins. Thank You, Lord Jesus, for being the Sacrificial, Passover Lamb so that we may be redeemed back to the Father. Thank You, Holy Spirit, for drawing us to the Father and piercing our hearts to say “yes” when He called us. Triumphant Lord, we praise You.  With our whole hearts we thank You as we meet with Your Godly people.  Your deeds are amazing!  All who delight in You shall ponder them.  Everything that You do reveals Your glory and majesty.  Your righteousness never fails.  You cause us to remember Your wonderful works.  You are so gracious and merciful!

Blessed Father, You said that if we will come close to You, You will come close to us.  As a Church Family, we are grateful to draw close to You during the Spring Feasts.  We confess that during Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread, we will slow down so that we can give You our full attention.  You said that Your people are being destroyed because they do not know You.  As a Church Family, we declare that we will learn more about You and Your love for us during this special time.  We thank You for the opportunity to remember and celebrate You.  We will meet with You at this special time.  We will not miss our appointment. We declare that the joy, peace, health and provision of the Lord, will overtake our congregation.

 

I commit to laying the following things aside during this time so that I can spend more time with the Father.  (List those things):

 

 

 

 

Holy Spirit, please open the eyes of our understanding to know the hope of our calling in Jesus Christ, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe.  Consecrate us as we gather together.  Unite our Church Family as a community of believers during the Seder meal.  During our Seders, help us to share the importance of the Seder dinner with our guests in a clear and appealing manner.  Father, bless us and help us to teach our children Your statutes in our homes. Increase our wisdom, discernment, and revelation knowledge as we prepare for Passover.  Reveal to us the sin in our lives which is not seen by the naked eye, so that we may repent.

 

Saving Father, forgive us for not being more committed to You.  Forgive us for having a form of godliness, but denying Your power.  Forgive those of us who speak of You with our lips, but our hearts are far from You.  Lord, create within us clean hearts and renew a steadfast spirit within us. Forgive us for being selfish, self-seeking, and only concerned about those things that benefit us directly. Lord, please hear our prayers and forgive us of our sin when we pray during the Passover season. Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed).  Holy Spirit, remind us all of those we need to forgive and help us to be quick to forgive.  As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive.  As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).”  Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

 

Holy Spirit, help us all to not yield to temptation; but deliver us from the evil one.

Worthy King, there is no one like You.  You are great and Your Name is full of power.  Who would not fear You, O King of the nations?  That title belongs to You alone.  Among all the wise people of the earth and in all the kingdoms, there is no one like You!  The Lord of Heaven’s Armies is Your Name!  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

April 21: A Prayer of Repentance

Loving Father, thank You for providing this special time of year for us to examine our lives. Thank You for Your Word which is a lamp to guide our feet and a light for our path. Thank You for sometimes allowing us to suffer afflictions and trials, for You are always faithful to bring us out with a greater knowledge of who we are in Christ. Thank You for the Holy Spirit who lives inside of us to lead and guide us every day. How good it is when we come together as a Body of Christ to sing praises to You! Throughout our lives, You have been faithful to heal our broken hearts and bandage our wounds. You support the humble, but bring the wicked down into the dust. We sing out our thanks to You, Lord. Your delight is in those who fear You; who put our hope in Your unfailing love. We give You glory! You have truly blessed us within our own homes. You send peace across our nation and satisfy our hunger with the finest wheat. We praise You, Lord!

Heavenly Father, we know that only those whose hands and hearts are pure can stand in Your Holy presence. We cannot worship idols and we must never tell lies. We know that if we want to receive Your blessing, we must first have right relationship with You. We are intentionally taking the time to examine ourselves and allow the Holy Spirit to show us where we have sinned. As the Body of Christ, we prepare our hearts and lift up our hands to You in prayer. We denounce our sins and leave our iniquity behind us. As we repent, we expect our faces to brighten with innocence.  We will be strong and free of fear. Misery has to flow away from us like water and our righteousness is brighter than the noonday. We look forward to being in Your presence. Father, we come before You, running with purpose in every step, not just shadowboxing. We commit to discipline ourselves to do what we should so that our witness to those who do not know You will not be disqualified.

 

I am not perfect, but I know that I can do better in the following areas of my life:

 

 

 

 

Holy Spirit, in our own strength, our efforts to change are futile. We ask You to help us release total control of our lives into Your hands. With Your help we can overcome our sinful ways. Lead us daily and remind us that we have been bought with a high price. Remind us of the spiritual laws You have taught us and help us to store the Father’s commands in our hearts. Help us to trust in You with all our hearts and get away from depending on our own understanding. Remind us to seek the Father’s will in all that we do. Help us not to be impressed with our own wisdom, but instead, strengthen us to fear the Lord and turn away from evil.

Holy Spirit, show me the sins that have a foothold in my life. (List those areas). I will take the following actions to break sin’s hold on my life:

 

 

 

Merciful Father, forgive us collectively and individually for the sins that we have committed against You. Forgive us for being prideful and deceiving ourselves. Forgive us for repeatedly making empty promises to You. Forgive us for being so quick to rush into sin. Forgive us for spending more time watching TV, texting, tweeting, and talking on Facebook, than praying, reading Your Word, and manifesting Your Kingdom by helping others. Forgive us for behaving disrespectfully toward our spiritual leaders when they rebuke our disobedience. Forgive us for lying, gossiping, and holding grudges against our brothers and sisters in Christ. Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that You have committed). Holy Spirit, remind us all of all those we need to forgive and help us to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show You names or faces of people that You may need to forgive. As He shows You, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).” Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in Your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

 

Holy Spirit, help us to not yield to temptation; but deliver us from the evil one.

 

Magnificent King, You count all the stars and call them all by name. You are great and Your power is absolute. Your understanding is beyond comprehension! All glory to You alone, our Savior through Jesus Christ our Lord. All glory, majesty, power, and authority are Yours before all time, and in the present, and beyond all time! In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
