Isaiah 1:16-17 (KJV) Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil; Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.
Heavenly Father, I come to You in the matchless and powerful Name of Your Son, Jesus. Father, I pray that Your Kingdom would come and Your holy will would be done here on earth in our lives as it is in Heaven. I pray, Father, that You would provide us with that which is sufficient to sustain us for today. Father, please begin Your work in us today by cleaning us from all unrighteousness with the precious blood of Jesus. Search our hearts and know us completely. If there is anything within our lives that is unpleasing to You, Father, I ask that You would shine the glorious light of Your Word upon it and bring us to the point of conviction that leads to repentance that we may refrain from sin and continue to abide in You.
Father, please give us from the wealth of Your reservoir of love, joy, peace, goodness, mercy, grace, and compassion and fill us completely. Allow us to give them as freely to others as You have so graciously given them to us. Fill us with Your Holy Spirit and empower and equip us for service in Your Kingdom. Anoint us afresh with the holy oil of Your anointing to the point of overflowing. Fill us with Your wisdom, knowledge, and understanding. Fill us with Your discerning spirit and discretion to be able to judge rightly, to know You and Your will so completely to make the right decisions for life.
As Believers, we should always seek to communicate with our Heavenly Father through prayer and the reading of His Inspired Word to receive His direction and guidance for each day.
Father, order our vision, our hearing, our thinking, our conversations, and our actions according to Your Holy Inspired Word. Help us to see Your creation from Your perspective. Help us to hear Your heart to be able to respond to the cry of others. Help us to be available to be used as a vessel meet for Your use, Heavenly Master. I pray, Father, that You grant us the power to advance Your Kingdom within the boundaries of Your earthly assignment for each of us. I pray that our lives bring greater glory to Your Holy Name and that the light of Your grace will shine through us that others may see Your life lived within us and are drawn to You by Your everlasting love flowing through us.
Father, I commit the gift of this day to You. I ask that You go before us and prepare the way before us. Be a Lamp unto our feet and a Light unto our paths. Stay the hand of the enemy and all of his planned schemes against us and our loved ones. Overshadow, undergird and surround us with Your Holy presence on this day. Let us go to our different destinations and return home to find it in safety and filled with Your peaceful presence.
Father, I pray that Yours is the Kingdom, the Power, and the Glory forevermore. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.
