I humbly share these sincere prayers with you, which came out of my personal longings for deeper depths in Christ. I lay these petitions to God every day, that he will continue to draw me in into an organic union through the agency of the Spirit, to capture all that He IS, and WHO I am in Him; undistracted by the world of sin and self.
My heart desire and the heartbeat of the Father is that all of the brethren who have been weakened by the world of sin and religion; pulled away from intimacy with the Father, because of a sense of guilt, will encounter His glorious presence to influence the world of sin for Christ Jesus, effortlessly.
I have asked the Father to light up your heart today. I want Him to bless you with His presence as you journey with the Holy Spirit, sending your heartfelt petitions to Him, in anticipation for an incredible awakening in your own life, and the world around you. You can also use puritan prayers to intercede for a friend, a small group, your church, or family. May His abounding Peace rest upon you and yours!
“ARISE [from the depression and prostration in which circumstances have kept you–rise to a new life]! Shine (be radiant with the glory of the Lord), for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you! [Zech. 8:23.] For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and dense darkness [all] peoples, but the Lord shall arise upon you [O Jerusalem], and His glory shall be seen on you. [Isa. 60:19-22; Mal. 4:2; Rev. 21:2, 3.]” Isaiah 60:1-2 AMPC
Dear, Father God
You’re the King of Kings
A Righteous judge over all and all
I thank you today, for the gift of life
I am deeply sorry,
For how long I’ve been governed by
This carnal invitations and temptations
Of this dark world, which has
produced gross weaknesses
My heart is dull, my spirit is numb
I am not happy, I am not free, I lack zeal
I lack sincere affections for your presence
I am bereft of the flame of hope, and the
fluidity to journey towards what
matters to you.
Abba, forgive me from this boredom drunkness
I am intoxicated in the world. The occupation of
worldly appraisals and passions have filled my belly.
This world is seductively my idol, and I’m cold
And passive to anything spiritual
I pray, dear Father, set my heart free,
Free like a bird, and make it ablaze
Like moonlight beauty, for
your own glory.
Free my soul from these invisible chains
That easily entangles me from pursuing you
Father God, Let your Holy Spirit quickened
This weary soul, and this worn-out temple
Of mine, so I could arise from the cold
Valleys of dry bones; becoming
A mighty force.
O’ Sweet Spirit, our trusted guide:
Manifest yourself among us,
Right now, right here, and we shall be
Awaken from our slumber.
Drench us in the sweetest odour of the Father
We want to diffuse our world with the
Eternal aroma that captivates the
Seat of human emotions [ spirit & soul ] for
An authentic response to your
Invitation of love, for true repentance.
May we capture our truest essence
Within the framework of your Kingdom
Agenda in it’s purest layout in the gospel
In partnership with the Holy Spirit.
I yearn for a richer understanding:
An understanding which comes from you
Holy Spirit, enlighten the eyes of my Heart
Lead me on, Shepherd of my Soul
Guide my heart to the greener pastures of truth
For I long to be captured first by your glory, so i
Can apprehend the length, the Depths, the
Breadth, and the heights of all that
You have offered through
Christ Jesus, my Saviour.
I ask that you Shine forth thy light, and
Thy grace upon this upside-down world
Draw the worst of us to yourself; sanctified
And purged; to confound the prideful of
hearts, swayed by human wisdom
And we shall be renewed.
You are the master porter, and
We are the marred clay, yet firmly
Embraced by your mercies and grace
I am grateful to you, Lord Jesus, that you
Are in total control, rewriting and amending
Our beggarly stories, because you have the
Power and the patience to alter all things
For thy glory and for thy pleasure
O’ great God, you are the perfecter of life.
Please, reform us, mould us, and shine
On us, to be conformed to the stature and
Best of heavenly standards which are
pleasing and acceptable to you,
If you can use anything, here I am;
Use me mightily, for your own glory
Before thy appearing, in Jesus
Your glorious name, I pray
