Daily Prayer for July 7

Affirmation of Freedom
My dad was a state councilman in our denomination and a pastor. My mother was the choir director, pianist and/or organist, a Sunday school teacher and the director of the Ladies Willing Worker Band. It made no sense that from an early age I would question the rules and regulations of the church, but I did. In high school all the “Thou shall not’s” began to feel like shackles and it would be many years before I realized that my quiet rebellion was not against God, but against the bondage of man-made doctrines. I was taught if the church said it, God said it! Man, I was in a pickle! Whom the Son has set free is free indeed? Really? I had been born-again, but I did not sense a freedom that allowed me to make choices…I wasn’t free to question anything. The iron-clad rules got tighter, but my mind did not shut off…I wanted understanding! I was told that I didn’t need to have understanding…all I needed to do was obey! Then a day came when I met the Truth that makes me free, and I read that understanding would keep me and I fell in love with Truth, and wanted to walk in His ways. …if you look closely into the perfect law that sets people free, and keep on paying attention to it and do not simply listen and then forget it, but put it into practice—you will be blessed by God in what you do (James 1:25). A light was turned on–I understood and could obey because I loved Truth that made me free…the choice was mine! I was free to obey and my world changed from bondage to freedom! Whom the Son has set free is free indeed! (John 8:36)

PRAYER:
Father, I am free to shout it from the rooftops: I am Free!! I thank You for sending Jesus and in Him I am free to make the choice to walk in Your Love that passes all understanding; when I step out of Love, You forgive me and my freedom continues! I am filled with gratitude for Your divine help as I enlarge the place of my tent and strengthen my stakes. In You I have found hope for despair. In You I’m experiencing stability! In You there is prosperity for poverty. In You there is health and healing for sickness. In You there is peace for conflict, whether it is in a relationship, in my home, or in my land. In You, Lord Jesus, is well-being for every area of life! Hallelujah! I am free! Thank You Holy Spirit for divinely orchestrating every aspect of my life! Jesus is Lord over my spirit, soul and body, and over my relationships. Amen

A Healing Prayer

Jesus was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering. Like one from whom men hide their faces He was despised, and we esteemed Him not.
Surely He took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered Him stricken by God, smitten by Him, and afflicted. But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him, and by His wounds we are healed. I receive divine healing for my spirit, soul and body in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Prayer of Reconciliation

Father, in Jesus’ name, You are the Great Reconciler! Of marriages! Of children! Of families! Of brothers and sisters in You! Of all relationships! It is in Your strength, and by Your grace that I will go to the person with whom I have had conflict. You have planted the Seed of Love in my heart, and I will humble myself by asking forgiveness regardless of who was at fault. I pray that the relationship will be healed and the breach mended. I purpose to do this in obedience to Your Word and for Your glory, Lord Jesus. The Repairer of Breaches in relationships is working on my behalf! Amen.

Daily Prayer for June 28

Called to Fellowship
Fellowship with Jesus and sweet communion with the Holy Spirit opens your eyes so you can see God as a loving Father. Your view of God is usually formed by your perception of your natural father. If you grew up with a punitive, emotionally isolated dad you may see God the same way. If your dad was never there for you, or if he expected perfection and made no allowances for mistakes, that is probably your image of God. When you fellowship with Jesus, you will get a different image of your Heavenly Father. This God who made you wants you to know His character, and His plans for your life. When you fellowship with Jesus through the Scriptures you come to know this God and can be filled with His fullness. The Holy Spirit is your Teacher and He takes the things of Jesus and reveals them unto you. Jesus went about doing good and healing all those who were oppressed by the devil (Acts 10:38). He did what His Father does, and He says what His Father says. Jesus is a true representative of the Father; to know Jesus is to know the Father.

PRAYER:
God, you called me into fellowship with your Son Jesus Christ my Lord and you are faithful. You called me to this through the gospel that I might share in the glory of my Lord Jesus Christ. You saved me and chose me for this holy work not because I deserved it but because that was Your plan long before the world began–to show Your love and kindness to me through Christ Jesus. Thank You for calling me; You are faithful to confirm Your word with signs and wonders for Your glory. I love You, my Lord God, with all my heart and with all my soul and with all my mind (intellect), and I shall love my neighbor as I do myself. Jesus, you are Lord! Amen

Daily Prayer for June 27

God Directs your Steps
God knew you before the foundation of the world, and He chose you to be His very own. He searched out your pathway, even your lying down. The Lord himself says that His thoughts and plans are for your welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome. (Jeremiah 29:11) God is acquainted with all your ways, and has laid His hand upon you, and the writer of Psalm 139 asks: Where could you flee from the presence of the Spirit of God? You are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that you may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for you. You can choose to take the paths which He prepared ahead of time that you should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for you to live]. (Ephesians 2:10) Who would want to miss out on God’s plan? Commit your education, your career, your future to the Lord and He will direct your path.

PRAYER:
O Lord, I know it is not within my power to map my life and plan my course. I commit my future plans to you – my education, whether I marry or remain single, my career, and my ministry. When I make a decision contrary to your will, correct me with justice, and lead me in paths of righteousness for your name’s sake. Thank you, Lord for directing my steps. Just as a mother and father are thrilled when their children take their first steps, You delight in each step I take. When I walk, my steps will not be hampered; when I run, I will not stumble in the name of Jesus. Amen

Confession of Salvation

I confess with my mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in my heart that God has raised Him from the dead—I am saved. For with my heart I believe unto righteousness, and with my mouth confession is made unto salvation. Father, I thank You for redeeming me from the law of sin and death. I walk after the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus, and I am no longer under condemnation. I have passed from death to life! Amen!

Joint Heirs With Christ

Father, I thank You for loving me. I have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear, but I receive the Spirit of adoption by whom I cry out, “Abba Father.” The Spirit Himself bears witness with my spirit that I am a child of God, and if a child then an heir—heir of God and a joint heir with Christ, if indeed I suffer with Him, that I may also be glorified together with Him. Father, I love You because You first love me. Amen

Daily Prayer for April 17

Spiritually Minded
It is possible to renew the mind to the Word of God. You can replace carnal thoughts of worry, fear, self-pity, and other self-defeating thoughts with peace. You can keep your mind filled with self-doubt, self-rejection and become self-absorbed — or you can become spiritually minded and change your self-image replacing negative thoughts with God’s thoughts toward you. Choose to be God-inside-minded.

PRAYER
Heavenly Father, I bind my mind to the mind of Christ, my will to the will of God and my emotions to the control of the Holy Spirit. I choose to walk according to the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus, setting my mind on the things of the Spirit. To be spiritually minded is life and peace. I count myself dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. Amen.
