Dear Father God, we desire as a church to take hold of the vision You have for us and pray that You would lead and guide us to take a collective step of faith in the direction that You would have us go.
Help us we pray, to grasp the church vision that You have for us, and may we be sensitive to Your leading and guidance. Prevent us from seeking to implement our own inferior ideas, or substitute our own manmade notions for Your plans and purposes.
Draw us closer to each other and to You, as we seek Your face together in prayer. May we be strengthened in the inner man, united together in the unity of the faith and prompted to carry out Your plans and purposes to Your greater glory.
We pray that the church vision that emerges in our hearts, will have been prompted by the Holy Spirit, for the edification of the saints and to Your praise and glory. This we ask in Jesus' name
Heavenly Father, give us wisdom we pray to know what You would have us do and discernment to know what is the desire of Your heart for our lives, so that we may align our thoughts to Your thoughts and our will to Your perfect will and purpose.
Keep us we pray from following after our own, natural human wisdom or being influenced by the ways of the world but rather may we learn to base our decisions on Your will and Your purpose and be ready to follow Your guidance and direction.
Grant us a clearer vision we pray and lead us along the right path we ask, in Jesus name,
Heavenly Father, I feel that my life is needing Your direction more and more. I need a divine ‘vision’ of You, a godly understanding of You and a deeper relationship with You. Lord, I want to know You more and love You better.
At times I feel that my Christian life has just been scratching the surface of Who You are and I long to be like Job, who said, “I have heard about You with my ears, but now I see You with my eyes.” He saw You with his spiritual eyes of understanding, and Lord, I desire to have that intimate vision of You too, although I shrink back from having to go through the difficulties and trials that Job had to experience.
Give me that inner vision of Yourself I pray. Your character, Your Person, Your love, and draw me ever closer to Yourself, so that I too may say, “my ears have heard all about You but now I have a vision of Who You truly are.” This I ask in Jesus' name,
Heavenly Father, we read in Your Word that, “where there is no vision the people perish – but blessed is the one that heeds instruction.” Father forgive us for seeking after our own limited, human vision rather that seeking after Your godly and eternal vision.
Forgive us for seeking to place our trust in our own limited view of what we consider is important in our lives and the world in which we live, rather than seeking after the purer perspective of Your eternal plans, for only when we have come to an understanding of Your purposes for the world, can we in honesty and in humility seek for godly wisdom and a godly vision.
Lord we pray, “Thy will be done on earth – Thy kingdom come..” for in so doing we recognise that without the Prince of Peace returning to rule and reign over this world, there will be no rest for humanity and no lasting peace that passes understanding.
Teach us to learn Your vision and to pray into Your will, not only in our personal lives and those of our loved ones, but help us also to come to a deeper knowledge of Your greater vision for the future of mankind, when the earth shall be filled with the glory of God as the waters cover the sea. Help us to soak our hearts in Your perfect desire for mankind, and to understand Your greater purpose for humanity. Give us the wisdom to pray into Your vision, for only as we align our minds to the mind of Christ and our will to the will of the Father, through the power of the Holy Spirit, will we pray effectively.
In Jesus' name,
Father how I thank You that my citizenship is in heaven, from which I also eagerly wait for the return of my Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ
Help me never to lose the excited anticipation I have when I consider the joy of Your soon return to take Your Body, (the Church), home to be with Yourself forever. Thank You Father for the seal of the Holy Spirit and the promised inheritance of all the saints, which has been reserved for us in heaven.
May I never lose sight of the joy that awaits us. May I eagerly seek You with all my heart every day of my life and I pray that I will always choose to live godly in Christ Jesus to Your praise and glory.
May I be obedient to the heavenly vision that You have placed within the heart of each of Your children and may I never lose the thrill of its anticipated arrival, but watch eagerly and wait patiently for the vision to come – and though that glorious, heavenly vision it may tarry… let me never be weary of watching and waiting – this I ask in Jesus name,
Thank You, Heavenly Father, that You have put eternity on our hearts and endowed each of us with gifts and creativity, so that our lives may be occupied purposefully and productively, in Your service.
Refresh my soul I pray, and give me a new vision, so that I may live my life in a manner that is worthy of You. Let me glimpse Your love and beauty, and help me to be willing to permit You to search deep into the inner recesses of my heart, so that I may be rid on anything and everything that could hinder the path along which You would have me go.
Give me a vision of the person You want me to be, and guide me along the way that You would have me to walk. Align my will to Your will so that the vision that is being nurtured deep in my heart, may reflect Your will and blossom into fruit of righteousness in my life. This I ask in Jesus' name,
Heavenly Father, I ask for the spirit of wisdom and revelation that You are pleased to give generously to all Your children, who come to you seeking Your face with all their hearts. Strengthen me in the inner man, and give me the grace and vision to be a participant in the furthering of Your plans and purposes in my life and in my prayers. I know that in Your wisdom, You have purposed a time when Christ will complete all that You have purposed for humanity, and also that in Your grace You have given us the opportunity to become participants, in praying into Your will.
Lord, forgive me for so often praying with limited understanding about the many things that concern us in our world in general, and in my own individual life in particular. Give me a vision of Your plan for mankind, and make me a perceptive praying partner in seeking Your face. Give me an understanding heart and nurture in me the desire to plead Your cause, in these increasingly difficult days in which we are living.
Give me that central vision that has been in the heart of God, before the foundation of the world, where God in His wisdom decreed that all those who put their trust in Christ would become one with Him until Christ is all in all.
Give me an understanding heart and teach me how to pray into Your perfect will, to Your praise and glory. In Jesus' name,
Father, You are the immortal, invisible God, Who has promised to lead and guide all those that are called by Your name.. and You have undertaken to give godly wisdom and vision generously to all Who come to You asking in faith – knowing that You have promised never to turn us away those that ask in faith or to find fault when we come to You trustingly and in humility of heart.
I come now to pray for spiritual vision and to ask You to lead and guide me in the days that lie ahead…trusting You to fulfil all the desires petitions of Your servant as may be best for me – to Your praise and glory.
Open my eyes to see Your will for my life and keep me from following after my own natural inclination or allowing my fluctuating emotions to dictate my decisions – but may I be led by Your Spirit to do only those thing that are pleasing in Your sight and which are best for me – for I believe that only as I seek to live godly in Christ Jesus will purpose for my life be fulfilled to Your praise and for my eternal benefit. This I ask in Jesus name
Dear God, please show me what you want me to do for you this year. All through last year I was selfish but this year I am ready to do his will
