Dear Lord, I know that for some time my life has not been as it should have been. I have been going my own way and not growing in my spiritual life as I know I should. Forgive me, for I know that I have strayed far from the path that I should be following and have become carnal and worldly in so many ways – and Lord I want to get back to a godly way of living and I know that I can’t do this in my own strength.
How I praise and thank You that You are my Father and I am Your child. I pray that Your Holy Spirit would search me and know me and work deep within my inner being.. to draw me into a closer and more meaningful fellowship with You, my Father – with each passing day.
May Your Holy Spirit work deep within my heart to refine me and make me more and more like the Lord Jesus Himself.. so that I may grow in my spiritual life – so that the loveliness of the Lord Jesus and the beauty of His person may flow into me and be reflected in my life – to His praise and glory.
Take my life I pray and use it in whatever way You choose I pray, so that I may live a life that is honouring to You.. in word and deed as well as action and attitude – to the praise of His holy name,
Father in heaven, we praise and thank You that according to Your great purpose and divine power, You have granted us all that we need that pertains to godliness and righteousness. Continue to multiply your grace and peace on all Your children and keep me I pray ever faithful to applying the truth of Your word in all I say or do…
I pray that my heart and soul may be consumed by You and that I may be diligent in studying the Scriptures so that I may apply its truth in every part of my life.
I pray that not only my words and deeds are pleasing to You, but also the thoughts of my heart and the motive behind my thoughts are filtered through the Word of God – and tested by the indwelling Holy Spirit day by day. I ask this in Jesus name,
Dear God, I know that this life is no more than a tiny fraction of time in the vast sea of eternity and yet I know that I have spent too long being involved in the here and now, without properly preparing my heart for my eternal home in heaven.
Forgive me Lord, and help me to change the direction of my life and to start to live as unto You.. Lord, I ask that You would help me to turn my life around, and that by Your grace You would direct my life and govern my future decisions.
Thank You Lord that I am Your child, by grace through faith. Thank You that I have been raised into newness of life with Christ. Guide my priorities and help me to set my sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ is seated in the place of honour at God's right hand. Help me to set my mind on eternal things that are above, not on the temporal things of this earth, knowing that I have died with Christ, and my life is hidden with Christ in God.
Thank You Lord that You are faithful to all Your children – even when we prove faithless in life. Thank You in Jesus name,
Father in a world where we are being fed so many untruths and distortions of Your Word we pray that You would give all Your children true spiritual wisdom and discernment to judge between that which is good and that which is unwholesome.
Give us all a hunger and thirst after righteousness and increase our spiritual appetites so that we may imbibe the milk of the word and to digest the meat of the Word and equip us with godly discernment and spiritual awareness so that we may live a righteous life in Christ.
Father we thank You for Your Word and all the inexhaustible truths it contains. May we grow in grace and in a knowledge of You and may we feed on Your Word by faith with thanks giving, in Jesus name we pray,
