Preface: Spirituality and specifically Christianity is a large part of how I identify myself. As such, this blog would be a gross misrepresentation of my perspective if I did not acknowledge it. In my more personal entries it should be anticipated that God/Jesus/the Holy Spirit, may come up. That being said, postings of my personal prayers is not something that I plan to do too often unless I get requests imploring otherwise, or I have something in my personal archive that I’m lead to share, as is the case with this one.
Dear Lord, thank you. If I stop this prayer right there it would be more than enough.
Thank you for who I am and where I am. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again I do not deserve to be here. Thank you for making your blessings and mercy’s known unto me. Lord I ask right now in the name of Jesus that you forgive me of any and all sins and that my heart and mind be fixated on you. Thank you for the conviction of your Holy Spirit that leads me closer to you every day. Even when there are thing that I am unsure about, He is sure.
Lord I thank you for all that was revealed to me this week in my time of focusing on you. Thank you for your provisions. I will never forget what it was like to be sitting in that quick check parking lot and coming to tears over just how blessed I am and how you’ve been providing for me every step of the way. Thank you for making me more aware of you.
Thank you that I do not do the things I use to do. Thank you that in my growth and maturation I have not lost myself, but have become my own best friend. Thank you for the relationship we have. It has become one that I value even though I do not always act like it; I’m glad I can call you my homie, literally.
Thank you for this season of stretch, and that in the stretch is where my faith grows and where you make your presence known. Thank you for trusting me, even when I did not always trust you.Thank you for allowing me to stretch my faith over this past week and daring to believe. Even though not everything I asked for came to pass it felt good just to know that if you wanted to you could have done it one, and two, you have something better on the way. I thank you for this season of triumph and victory. I thank you that you hear my prayers and are a truly a prayer answerer. I thank you that you know me and lead me.
Lord I declare and receive everything you have spoken over my life and that my best days are not only ahead of me, but they are here right now.I declare that the only way to go from here is up. I declare your word over my life that says you will never leave me or forsake me. I declare you word over my life that says no weapon formed against me shall prosper. I declare your word over my life that says all things work together for the good of those that love the Lord. As I continue to grow continue to help me love you. Show me the true daily value in loving you. Lord I pray you continue to help me to be a good steward of what you have given me. Lord I believe you can take my little and make it much, and that you will do just that.
As this season kicks into high gear Lord, I just ask that you raise my expectations and that you help to not be complacent. You know my goals and vision for this year those spoken and unspoken, those written on paper and those that are just written in my heart; because you put them in me. Allow them to come to pass in Jesus name.
Lord thank you that I enjoy writing and that I’m good at it. Utilize this skill for your glory. Show me how to be a good steward of this gift to impact lives. Provide unto me narratives, ideas, proposals, journal entries, research articles, Op-Eds, speeches, and whatever it is you see fit. Do not allow me to let my skills or talents, this or any other one to go to waste. Put me in a position to execute to the highest standard I am capable of.
Lord I love you I thank you and eager for what you have next for me; Your will be done in Jesus name, Amen.
