Prayer 8/17/18

Glorious God of breath and life. We praise Your Holy name today, Jesus. Hallelujah!!! Glory!!! We give You all the glory, honor, and praise for what You have so graciously blessed us with today. We honor You with every thought, deed, and action today. Marvelous, Father!!! Yesterday has passed away and every day we can renew our minds in You and break out of old mentalities of being trapped and held down by things of this world. Jesus, You have not only freed us from eternal death, but You have given us a life that You have an abundance for us to have in it. Break us out of ourselves today, Father. Pull us away from our flesh and worldly lusts of money, fame, and intoxicating ventures of things outside of Your will for our lives. Jesus!!! We rebuke our minds that try to stray us from the truth in You. It is written do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. Thank You for Your Word, Father!!! We are not trying to seek things of this world. Your Word states seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and You will provide all other things. Hallelujah!!! Thank You, Father!!! You have called us each to their own gifts and talents. We are not all supposed to be the same. I pray that whatever You have put in us for our gifts and on our hearts today we embrace them. And reflect the light and glory of God through those gifts and callings. That whatever we put our hands, our words, or our voices we do it as if we were doing it to You, Jesus. Worthy You are!!! It’s so easy to get sucked in to the mundane tasks of life, family, and work. I pray we not forget that our life is living and breathing for Your purpose and Your sake today. That even if You took everything away from us, our life is still in You and You in our life. Hallelujah!!! We are not what we have. It’s what we do with what we have been given from You, Father. We are Yours, Jesus!!! We take upon Your yoke today which is light and easy. We find rest in You, Father!!! We wash ourselves in Your life Jesus that was so generously poured out for us to live a sacrificial life for Your glory. We honor You, Father. We belong to You first, above all other things in this fleshly existence. You knew us before our mother’s and father’s knew us. Before our jobs, families, and accomplishments. Before existence, we were in Your imagination. Hallelujah!!! Glory to God!!! How Great You are, God!!! Thank You for saving us!!! Thank You for Your love that surpasses all others!!! I pray over this family today, Lord!!! For things that You are tearing down and things You are building up. You have purpose in pruning, shaping, and molding Your children, Father. In breaking us open that we can have more of You. I pray for generations yet to come. I speak life over them and into each one of us today. Believing and trusting only in You and knowing You are a God that hears, sees, and answers those that love and seek You. Hallelujah, Father!!! Hallelujah!!! We pick up our cross and follow You, Jesus. We bless and love You, Father. In Jesus Mighty name we pray. AMEN!!!
