Gracious and Holy Father,

You are three perfect beings in One. You are the Alpha and Omega. At the same time, you are the Lion of Judah. Still at the very same time you are our Precious Comforter and the Fire in the Clouds. For all that you are, I worship You, the Triune God. Nothing is too hard or impossible for you. You can do anything but fail or lie. You are the Living Truth. I send holy kisses to you. I hide my face from you, for your glory is so radiant. I stand in awe of you. I love you. Write on my heart. Anoint my mouth. Guide my hands and feet. Receive these prayers, In the name of my Redeemer, Jesus Christ. Amen.

2 Timothy 2:14-15

Living Bible

14 Remind your people of these great facts, and command them in the name of the Lord not to argue over unimportant things. Such arguments are confusing and useless and even harmful. 15 Work hard so God can say to you, “Well done.” Be a good workman, one who does not need to be ashamed when God examines your work. Know what his Word says and means.

Heavenly Father,

Sometimes it can be so easy to give up during a test. A test makes us have to use energy and strength that we didn’t realize we would need. Even though tests are hard and we don’t always pass the first time, you are faithful to reveal to us what we need to work on and where we need to “study.”

Tests always reveals two things, what we know and what we don’t know. Once our weaknesses are revealed, we will know how to train and study and we will also know how to pray.

Father, allow the truth of the test to be revealed to us. Prepare us for the test and reach us the most effective way to study, so that when the time comes we will be able to bring back to remembrance the right moves to make and the correct way to respond.

Lord, gives us the courage to keep pressing on, even when we want to quit. Let us not believe any voice that is not yours. Protect our heart and mind from tricks and tactics of the enemy. May our eyes be forever on you, Lord. Holy Spirit lead, guide, and walk with us as we continue on in the next season of our journey, in the name of our Lord and Chief Intercessor, Jesus Christ. Amen.

Jehovah God,

I woke up this morning thanking you, Lord, for so many blessings. Our scripture passage, today, reminds us of the fruitful harvest we will receive as we practice obedience to your Word. I may have some troubles, but my blessings, from you, outweighs them all. I praise You for allowing me to be able to see your marvelous glory every day. May your Word continue to flow through my heart and mind. Lord, I ask for the eyes of those that are called your children to be opened to how truly blessed they are. As we open our mouth, may we continually proclaim your faithfulness in times of trouble and in peace. You are our source and strength. Allow us the opportunity today to say, “Thank You,” each time we recognize your blessings in our lives. We understand that when we keep our eyes on You, and not our circumstances, our responses will change as well. May we speak to our Mountain with authority. We lift these prayers to you, in the name of your Son and our Redeemer, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Precious Jehovah,

We bless your holy name and lift you higher than any other. You do all things well and for our benefit. Lord, I don’t always understand why certain things happen. I know that the free will given to man plays a large role in the things taking place in this world. Human beings decide each day whether to make a choice that is good and beneficial, or one that has its root in the flesh. I give you permission, Lord, to help me make the best decisions that glorify you and uplift others.

My desire is for my life to be an act of worship. Lord, I am pressing harder than I ever have before, to get to that NEXT LEVEL in you. Help me to see those things I must learn before I can advance to the next level. Mature me, teach me, show me, and lead me in the way I should go. Where is the best place for my footing? Where should I place my hands? I know my door(s) is waiting for me. Prepare me, Lord, for the open doors. In the name of Jesus, I lift this prayer to you. Amen.

Precious Lord,

We send worship, love and adoration to you. Thank you for allowing us to hunger and thirst for your presence in church. Our time together was taken for granted.

Your enemies shall submit themselves to You.
All the earth shall worship You
And sing praises to You;
They shall sing praises to Your name.” Selah
