Thank You for Your promises. I especially appreciate knowing that have You promised not to abandon Your people (Psalm 94:14). I claim this promise on behalf of __________ this morning.
I know that things are messy right now. They feel that everything of life within them is cold and dead. Yet, You are the Life (John 14:6). You are the One Who gives Life to the dead and calls into being that which doesn’t exist at all (Romans 4:17). You are the resurrection (John 11:25). So out of the deadness of their life situation, I ask that You make up the years that the locust has eaten (Joel 2:25).
Father, their strength is weakened in the way (Psalm 102:23). Their heart and their flesh has failed (Psalm 73:26). They have cried out to You with loud tears, mad tears, hurt tears – show them the bottle into which You have saved every drop (Psalm 56:8). I ask that You work within them a letting go — a relaxing — a being still that they may know that You are the One in charge. You are God (Psalm 46:10). You are the One who made them — and in the same way, You are the One that is in charge of their spiritual journey (Psalm 100:3). Lead them onto paths of righteousness for the sake of Your Name (Psalm 23:3). And don’t forget the green pastures — they really need to lie down and rest there (Psalm 23:2).
You have promised that when we see You, then we will become like You, full of grace and truth (1 John 3:2). _____ need to see You clearly. Transform them from the inside out. May Your Word become life to them, not just something that they read on a page (John 1:17,18). After all, it is the Spirit who gives life, not words (John 6:63). Well up rivers of living water from within their innermost being (John 7:38) because if You don’t lead them up from this place, then they can’t move at all (Exodus 33:14). Redeem their soul in peace from the battle that is against them (Psalm 55:18).
Show us all the hidden value of Who You are. Yes, Lord, show us Your glory (Exodus 33:18). In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
