Puritan Prayer


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

within me.

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


Renew us,

Your people,

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,

You alone.


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

Amen!
