Psalm 113, Romans 8:1-17
Heavenly Father, blessed is Your glorious Name, which is exalted above all blessing and praise. You alone are the Triune God; You have made the skies and the heavens and all the stars. You made the earth, the seas and everything in them. The angels of heaven worship You. You are an awesome God. Lord, as a Church Family, we thank You for being such a loving God. Thank You for redeeming and reconciling us back to You, through Your Son, Jesus Christ. Thank You for sending Your Holy Spirit to comfort, empower and guide us here on earth. Holy Spirit, we are thankful to You, for Your manifested presence in our lives.
Father, as a Church Family, we are grateful to You for sealing us with the promise of Your Holy Spirit. We are thankful that the same power (Holy Spirit) that raised Jesus Christ from the dead is now working in us to do Your good will and pleasure. Holy Spirit, we thank You for being our Helper and living in us forever. We thank You for teaching us all things and bringing to our remembrance all things God, our Father, has said. Thank You, for leading us and guiding us into all truth. Thank You for freeing us from the bondages of our fleshly desires; for to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Holy Spirit, thank You, for producing in us the fruit of love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control as we walk in You. Holy Spirit, because of You, we have the power to love unconditionally; power to perform miracles and healing; and the power to cast out demons. We can do all things through Jesus Christ because of You.
What areas of your life are you still trying to control? Jot those areas down and now ask the Holy Spirit for help in these areas:
Holy Spirit, we ask that You teach us how to reverence God, the Father, in true holiness. Enable us to receive the truth of the Word. Please give us comprehensive insight into the ways and purposes of the Father’s will so that we may conduct our lives in a manner worthy of Christ. Help us to walk daily, in the spirit of humility and to think more of others than we do ourselves. Finally, teach us how to love and honor You.
Father, forgive us if we have grieved Your Spirit from time to time. Forgive us for acts of sinfulness such as: pride, rebellion, disobedience, selfishness, hatred, stealing, lying, homosexuality, adultery, fornication, and idolatry. Forgive those of us who have not worshipped You, in Spirit and in Truth. Forgive those who speak of the Holy Spirit, but do not allow Him to operate within them. Forgive those who know Jesus as Savior, and having a form of godliness, deny Your power. Lord, remind all of us of those persons we need to forgive; and please help us to forgive.
Lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from the evil one.
Blessed are You, the only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords. You alone have immortality and dwell in the light, which no man can approach. To You, O God, belongs honor and power everlasting. You only have held the oceans in Your hand. You measured off the heavens with Your fingers. You know the weight of the earth and weigh the mountains and hills on a scale. We bless and honor You, In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
