…a prayer for today
Oh Lord, Father, I just come to you now in prayer. In my inner soul I kneel before you. Oh my God, thank You for the privilege to come into Your very presence this very moment.
Thank you for your goodness, and your kindness. Thank you that you love me – with a huge, incomprehensible love. I am blown away! How most fortunate I am to know You. Thank you, Jesus, for dying for me on a cross – to make this possible. Thank You for bringing me to Yourself.
I need you, oh Lord. I could never walk Your Way without You. I am so weak, so prone to sin, so in need of your Spirit being strong inside me, and Your forgiveness. I confess that I am a sinner in need of your grace this day. Forgive me of my sins, I pray.
I ask that you will search my mind and my heart, my soul and my spirit — and see if there be any wicked way in me. Cleanse me from every stain, anything wrong, anything “not of You” that I have going-on in me, in my life, anything that may be displeasing you, in:
all my heart, all my soul, all my spirit, all my body — my thoughts, my will, my strengths, my desires, my emotions, my ambitions, my idle pursuits, my leisure, my monies, my things, my relationships, my family, my friends, my neighbors, my community, my work and business….
Compared to You and Your Holiness, I am so unclean. Because You are Creator of All, cleanse me and declare me pure through the grace of Jesus. Blot out any sins that stand between You and me, right now. Renew a right spirit within me – so our relationship is unbroken.
Help me to relax in You right now, in the realization that in this moment all is well with my soul. There is no sin that You have not forgiven me for. Because You, in Your Holy Courts declare me clean and washed, I stand within your Courts – Redeemed by the sacrifice of The Lamb, pure in my robe of righteousness which You put on me. You have given me the right to be called Your own, a child of the King!
Thank you for this, Your boundless grace towards me, that You would accept me and make me Your child, just as I am, with no excuse. You love me, even as You see me just as I am, all of me, my inner soul transparent before you — with all my weaknesses, with my inabilities to walk perfect in my ways as You are perfect. Thank you Lord.
Your grace is always covering my sin because I’ve been born again by faith in Jesus Christ. Although still sinful, I stand here made perfect in Christ who died to save my soul. I’ve been Redeemed! You, in Your Royal Courts, have declared me “Not Guilty” – because of the blood of the Lamb who covers me for all eternity.
So Lord, I say YES to You this day, and again affirm Your reality in my life. I claim that true reality again this moment, reminding myself again that I am accepted by Your legal justice system, and I have been made brand new, a Child of the King. I validate myself – that I am in Christ and You are in me by your Holy Spirit.
And I refuse all the doubts that my mind whirls up. I choose to actively believe Your Word, this day. I praise you, oh my God, my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Fill me anew this moment by Your Holy Spirit. I yield my will to Yours. May I walk this day in the power that works with great might inside of me. Guide me, lead me. Help me to use Your Word to guide my words, my thoughts, my desires, my emotions, my plans, my actions, my choices… throughout this day. Thank you, thank you Lord.
