Abba Father, I come before You giving thanks for a brand new day, at the start of a brand new week. No matter what this morning, day or week places before me, I know that on You I can depend. The weather may change from one hour to the next, but You remain the same: For that I give You praise. Forgive me of all wrongs that have flowed from my lips, brewed in my mind, collected in my thoughts and dwelt in my heart; whether they were intentional or not. Help me, so I may never go down that path again. However, if I do, forgive me and remove all fear and hindrance, so I may continue to do Your will.
Today, my prayer is that I may know YOU and the FULL power of Your resurrection. I don’t want to know what others know about You, or even what You have shown others about You but I want to know You personally, as I have never done before. My soul cries out to You and wants to know You at deeper depths and higher heights. May there be no thing that I do or think that is outside of the remit of Your plans for me. Your Word says that You know the plans You have for me and they are of peace, for my well-being and not ones that will cause me harm. Because of You I have a future and I have a hope. Heal my heart, so I will not focus on the negative but shift my view to what You have placed before me. When I have been hurt, help me to heal others; when I feel sad, give me compassion, so I can touch the broken-hearted. For these blessings for myself and to touch others, I trust in You.
12 Moses said to the Lord, “See, You say to me, ‘Bring up this people,’ but You have not let me know whom You will send with me. Yet You have said, ‘I know you by name, and you have also found favor in My sight.’
13 Now therefore, I pray you, if I have found favor in Your sight, let me know Your ways so that I may know You [becoming more deeply and intimately acquainted with You, recognizing and understanding Your ways more clearly] and that I may find grace and favor in Your sight. And consider also, that this nation is Your people.”
14 And the Lord said, “My presence shall go with you, and I will give you rest [by bringing you and the people into the promised land].”Exodus 33:12-14 (AMP)
“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they will not overwhelm you. When you walk through fire, you will not be scorched, nor will the flame burn you.Isaiah 43:2 (AMP)
For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.Jeremiah 29:11 (AMP)
20 Now may the God of peace [Who is the Author and the Giver of peace], Who brought again from among the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, by the blood [that sealed, ratified] the everlasting agreement (covenant, testament),
21 Strengthen (complete, perfect) and make you what you ought to be and equip you with everything good that you may carry out His will; [while He Himself] works in you and accomplishes that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ (the Messiah); to Whom be the glory forever and ever (to the ages of the ages).
Amen (So be it)Hebrews 13:20-21 (AMPC)
