But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you. Romans 8:11
Jesus Christ resurrected from the dead, so that we could rise too.
Thank you Lord God, that we know you. That you make yourself know in the entire world. It is a privilege to know you and to behold your glory. It is a underserved gift that we may encounter and bask in your holy presence.
Jesus, Your word tells of your life- of the future that would come and you would go through. I thank you, that just as you are the Lord of lords, you are about all gods known and created by man. I am grateful that you have called us, and set us apart for your own purpose. Although your purpose for us, may be that of suffering as the life of Christ… we know that He resurrected from the deepest of depths, death.
I come before you to present my family, loved ones and myself, as well as those reading today. May your grace meet us in the depths of our dead parts. May you extend your mercy to us, where we do not receive what we deserve. Sometimes we act contrary to your word, and it’s truly a soul issue, a matter of our hearts where we do not believe your good plans for us.
I pray for a resurrection in our hearts to perceive your truth and cause allegiance to it. I ask that your restore the joy of our salvation, and create a new heart in us to know you. Your word says in Ezekiel, that you would give us a heart to know you, to honor you by our obedience. May we not weary of doing good, of loving the unloveable, directing the rebellious, empowering the weak, encouraging the doubters, or consoling the broken-hearted.
I pray for paradigm shifts in each of our minds, to a recognition of our need for you and a conviction that you have the perfect, good and pleasing plan for us. Although Jesus denied Himself most of the human pleasures of this life, and suffered rejection, accusation, gossip, and violent attack here on earth- today He is reigning in glory with you the father in heaven.
May heaven be real to us, just as what our carnal minds can perceive here on earth. I pray for liberation for all who are in mental, physical or emotional cycles. Which cause us to sabotage your destiny for us, and who steal our peace. God, you said you would uproot every seed which was not planted by you. May we rest in your promises, acknowledging that this is a lifetime journey- not an overnight transformation. May your glory and presence direct, counsel and comfort us during the trying times when we want to give up the fight.
I give you praise and honor, believing that you are not a man nor sin of man to lie. Your word is infallible and it is true. I present this to you in the name which is above every name, the matchless and incomparable name of Jesus. Amen.
