Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the rock of our salvation.  Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song.  For the Lord is the great God, the great King above all gods.  In his hands are the depth of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to him.  The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land.  Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our maker, for he is our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under his care.

 

I come before you today O’ God, asking for forgiveness, cleanse me of offenses, wash me with hyssop, create a clean heart, and renew a right spirit within me. Thank you for caring for me, for protecting me, thank you keeping me safe, thank you for keeping my mind, thank you for being Jehovah Jireh my provider, thank you for being a way maker, thank you for life, thank you for health, thank you for being Abba Father, my daddy.

 

Today God I ask you to show me the needs of your heart, your desires, so that I can pray according to your will.  Fill me with joy and peace in believing  that I may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.  (Romans 15:13)

Today I will pursue the things which make for peace and the things by which I may edify another.  (Romans 14:19) I will encourage my brothers and sisters, I will build them up, I will esteem them very highly in love so that we can live in peace with one another.  (I Thess. 5:11,13)  For you are our peace.

 

Father God you said in your word “I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. (Jeremiah. 29:11) Thank you God, I bless you, I honor you because you are God and there is no one else like you, or ever will be.  I love you, and I praise you for just being God.  I glorify you today O God, I exalt your name  high above every god, every desire, every want, and anything that comes to interfere in my walk with you.

Father  I love you because you first loved me (I John 4:19),  and I know and believe the love that you have for us.

 

Father  we’re falling short of being that example to the world, so I come to ask you to strengthen each of us today.  You said in your word “I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in me through their word; that they all may be one, as you, Father, are in me and I in you; that they may be one in us, that the world may believe that you sent me.

And the glory which you have given me I have given them, that they may be one just as we are one:  I in them, and you in me; that they may know that you have sent me, and have loved them as you have loved me.  (John 17:20-23)

My desire is that we be that example for you, speak to our heart.  You said in your word “If you abide in me and I abide in you, you can ask what you will and it will be done for you".

 

Thank you for loving us in spite of our frailties, our shortcomings, our misconduct, and even our mischievious ways, you still love and forgive and wash and cleanse your people from sin, thank you Father God, thank you.  Thank you, thank you, thank you.

 

Thank you for the seasons of the year so we never get bored.  You allow us to experience winter, summer, fall and spring, and you give us the rain to calm our soul, you are so vast, and you come when we least expect you to show up.  You make wars to cease, you dry our tears, you speak peace to our storms, you bring laughter and joy to our heart and you pick up the broken pieces and put them back together better than they were before, Abba Father you are great, powerful, wonderful, magnificent, you’re my daddy.

 

Father you have given us authority in the earth to break curses, to heal diseases, to speak peace, to bring down injustices, to lift the oppressed out of darkness, to calm storms, to win battles, to snatch out of darkness those that are bound, to win the lost, to turn evil into good.  Father forgive us for not using and accessing the power that you have freely given to us to turn our captivity into dancing, Oh how we have so lived beneath our privileges and even now we are still asking for what you have already granted.  Thank you for opening our eyes once again.  Thank you.
