A Prayer for God’s Women of Power
Psalm 111, Colossians 1:9-14
Magnificent Father, we thank You for loving us, forgiving us and saving us. We give thanks to You as we call upon Your Name. We are thankful that Your compassion towards us is unfailing and Your mercies are new every morning. Your faithfulness is great towards us. Father, we honor You and we bless You. With all our souls and all that is within us, we bless Your Holy Name. It is You, who draws us with loving kindness and tender mercies and You satisfy our mouths with good things. Lord, we will make known Your deeds among the people. We will sing to You the praises due Your Name and tell everyone about Your miracles.
Loving Father, Your Word instructs that faith without work is dead, so we confess that as women, we will develop and demonstrate our Christian faith, daily. We declare that in singleness, marriage, motherhood, separation, divorce or widowhood, we are more than conquerors through Christ. We confess that as we submit to Your Word; we are transformed by the renewing of our minds. Lord, we decree that our belief systems and behavior patterns reflect Your righteousness in our personal and professional lives. We declare that the light of Jesus is reflected in our actions. We declare that we are virtuous women and our price is far above rubies. As we fellowshipwith one another, others will see our good works and glorify You, our Father in heaven. Lord, we confess that Your favorsurrounds us as like a shield. We declare that our finances are blessed and we are lenders, not borrowers. Lord, because we realize that the food we put in our bodies can impact our mental, emotional, physical and spiritual capabilities, we declare that we will eat right on all occasions. We confess that we will include exercise in our daily activities to maintain physical health. Above all, we confess that we have victorious futuresbecause Your plans for us are of hope; filled with good and not evil.
Righteous Father, we ask You to bless all women; single, married, mothers, separated or divorced and widowed. We ask You to supply all our needs according to Your riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Holy Spirit, please instruct us in our relationships, ministries, careers and finances. Strengthen our hearts so that we may walk in holiness before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all His saints. Help us to stay focused and disciplined in Your Word so that we will be transformed by the renewing of our minds.
Forgiving Father, forgive us for sins of disobedience, such as gossiping, lying, pornography, fornication, adultery, idolatry, profanity, deception, drunkenness, drug abuse and all other sins we have committed by thought, word or deed. Forgive us for rebellion and selfishness. As wives and mothers, forgive us when we have taken on the roles You have ordained for husbands and fathers. Father, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed.) Holy Spirit, remind us all of those we need to forgive and help us to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive. As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).” Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)
Holy Spirit, help us all not to yield to temptation; but deliver us from the evil one.
Lord, You are the blessed and Sovereign One. The King of kings, and the Lord of lords, who alone has immortality, dwelling in an unapproachable light, whom no man can see. Yours is the Kingdom, the power and the glory forever and ever. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
