A Prayer for Rejoicing

Scripture Reading: Exodus 15:1-18, Philippians 4:4-9

Holy Father, we give thanks to You and proclaim Your greatness. We will let the whole world know what You have done for us. We thank You for entering into a relationship with us. Thank You for a time of intimate praise and worship with You. Thank You for meeting our physical and spiritual needs. Thank You for a time of Christian fellowship and unity. With our whole hearts and with all that is within us, we bless Your Holy Name. It is You, Father, who crowns us with love and tender mercies. You fill our lives with good things; our youth is renewed like the eagle’s. We will sing to You the praises due Your Name and tell everyone about Your miracles.

Triumphant Father, we decree that as we rejoice and praise Your Name, our souls will be anchored in You. Your Word says, “if we come close to You, You will come close to us.” Therefore, we confess that we will meet You daily in intimate prayer, praise and worship. We will come before You with broken spirits and repentant hearts as we meet You in Your sanctuary. We know that as we worship You in spirit and truth, there will be a spiritual exchange and we will shed more of our carnal nature and allow the Holy Spirit to take His proper position in our lives. Lord, we expect Your Kingdom to advance in our lives with miracles, signs and wonders and we will rejoice always.

Holy Spirit, I will rejoice in You each day by (list things that you will do to honor God): ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Holy Spirit, please fall fresh upon us as we serve You with love, humility and excellence. Empower us to have peace, wisdom and patience as we go through each day. Teach us to be timely with our praise with humility. Lord, hear our voices as we sing praises to You in perfect unity. Clothe us with compassion, kindness, gentleness, and patience. Holy Spirit, give us the power to serve with joy, gratitude, love and enthusiasm. We will spread our happiness, joy and worship all over the world so that all can see how wonderful and fulfilling it can be to rejoice in You.

Merciful Father, please forgive us for all acts of sinfulness, including jealousy, contempt, pride, criticism, lying,gossiping, hatred and malice. Forgive us for not remembering to give You honor and glory. Father, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed).Holy Spirit, remind us 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 reveal names or faces of people that you may need to forgive. As He reveals them, say, “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.

Glorious King, all praise belongs to Your Name forever and ever. You have all wisdom and power. You control the course of world events; You remove kings and set up other kings. You give wisdom to the wise and knowledge to scholars. All honor belongs to You alone. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
