Good Morning Gorgeous,
It’s a brand new day. A fresh new start. A new day to rise and take a posture of prayer before the Lord.
Jesus taught His disciples how to pray when they asked. He gave them the prayer commonly referred to as the Lord’s prayer.
Our pastor calls it the disciples prayer because it was given to the disciples as a way for them pray. I learned this prayer when I attended a Lutheran middle school. We recited it daily. Nia went to the same school for pre k and she came home reciting it because they still have the kids pray it every day.
Jesus gave us a prayer that is so precious and pure because when we pray this way, we are literally praying for the will of the Lord to come to pass in our lives. We are praying for things that have eternal value because they are things of the spiritual realm.
Sometimes before bed, I type up my prayers to God. I just type whatever flows from my heart. Sometimes I communicate better in writing than spoken words.
Tonight I found myself praying the Lord’s prayer, but praying deeply for each verse and what it meant to me.
When I typed Amen, I decided to share here in this space too. I believe my heart spilled out to Jesus tonight helps to bring understanding to what each line of the Lord’s Prayer means, and takes it beyond just repeating words, but brings revelation.
Here’s my heart cry to Jesus this evening..
I trust You. I trust You. I trust You.
I trust You.
Our Father who are in heaven, Holy and Magnificent is Your Name. I magnify You above every other name in my life. You get the full glory, the full honor, I trust in Your Name.
Your Kingdom come, Your will be done in my life. Let Your will supercede mine..let Your will take captive my will and align my hopes, dreams, and visions to YOUR plans for my life. If I have an ambition or a dream counter to Your Perfect plans for me, I release it now.
Let Your will be done in the earth as it is done in heaven. Send Your Kingdom to earth. Let me partner daily with what Heaven is up to and not worry myself with the temporary things of earth. Keep me invested in bringing heaven’s ways to earth through prayer, obedience to Holy Spirit, and being prepared at all times for say yes to holy assignments.
Give me today the daily bread that is needed to sustain me. Feed me Your Word and strengthen my spirit with spiritual nourishment through the reading of Your Word, through the anointing teaching of preachers and earthen vessels that You have assigned to speak into my life. And You called deliverance the children’s bread, so I receive and partake in the bread of deliverance in my life so that any demonic influence coming against me must go now in Jesus’s Name..
Forgive me of any sins I’ve committed. I repent of sin patterns and cycles. Take these from me and cleanse me completely of any impurities that are keeping me from the fullness of abundant life that You have for me. Help me to extend radical forgiveness to those who have wronged me just as You have radically forgiven me.
Protect me from temptation by satan. Lord, help me to discern when he is at work in my life so that I may refuse to partner with his schemes. Keep me so close to You in spirit and in truth that I can spot his counterfeit plans quickly and rebuke him before he ever gains a foothold. Deliver me from all evil and purify me completely.
I recognize that You are King over all and I partner with Your Kingdom. I serve You as King. Any good that people see in me, may You get all the glory and honor. And as I walk in the earth as a fully anointed child of God, May Your power be at work flowing through me as a willing vessel. And may I make it well known that all the Power is Yours alone.
May these truths continue in my life forever and ever right into eternity,
In Jesus’s Name,
Blessings and an ignited prayer life,
And if you came across this post and you haven’t yet accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, may I encourage you that by choosing Him you receive eternal life in heaven, BUT ALSO abundant life NOW. Following Him is the most precious adventure you have ever taken!! All you have to do to get started is to pray and receive Him as Lord. The Bible says to confess Jesus Christ as Lord and believe with your heart the precious gospel message that Jesus taught. Repent of your sins which means simply to ask Jesus to forgive you and then choose to walk away from them and go in the New Direction that God is calling you to. Confess or speak that you believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who died for you, that He was resurrected from the dead, and ascended to heaven. And that you recieve Him as your Lord and Savior. That you are sorry for your sins and you recieve His FULL and complete forgiveness for every wrong you’ve ever committed. And that you are choosing to follow Him now and leave the ways of the world behind for the things of Jesus!!! And if you mean that with your heart, you are saved and set free to live a new life free of sin! The Bible says you are now a brand new creation! Old things have passed away and new things have come!!! The Bible also says that all of heaven rejoices whenever a person is saved!!!! Just imagine the party being held in heaven on your behalf right now.
