Fight fear

Father, thank you that I have no need to fear because you fight for me. 

.

Help me to stand and wait for your deliverance.

Love

Father, that I may know and believe the love you have for me.

.

.

I catch myself time and time again striving and working for that love. I long to know you as a Father who loves without condition and without any requirements. That you care for me without limit. I have missed it for so long.

.

.

Teach me to abide in your love and have no fear. I know when I am perfected in love, my understanding will be deepened and fear will have no place.

.

.

Perfect your love in me. Thank you that I can love you because you loved me first. Thank you that my love will overflow into the world around me. Give me the depths of this understanding.

1 John 4

His pleasure

Father, thank you that it is you who works in me, that my will and my work will be for your pleasure.

.

.

Thank you that I can put no confidence in my flesh and what I am able to do, but that all my confidence is on your Holy Spirit to lead me and in Christ Jesus, who redeemed me.

.

.

Help me to take this truth and make it my own. To press on toward the goal, for the prize of the upward call.

.

.

Thank you that because I know who you are and who I am in you, I can rejoice in you.

Philippians 2 & 3

Discipleship

Father, thank you for strong women and men who challenge and build up those younger in the faith.

.

.

Help us to learn the value and need for true discipleship, which truly changes lives.

.

.

Help us to build up and encourage each other in the word and with the examples of our lives and teach us to allow others to speak into our lives for the sake of the gospel.

1 Timothy 6

Blessed

Father, I want to be blessed by you.

.

.

I don't want to plant myself rooted deeply in the ways of the world.

.

.

I want all my delight to be in you and in your beautiful word.

.

.

Draw me to meditate on it day and night. That is the only way it can come out of me... if it is deep in me.

.

.

Root me deeply in you.

Psalm 1

Unity

Father, thank you for the Apostle Paul and his passion for your church. 


Thank you that you are the one who completes the work in me, because you are the one who began it. This shows me that I am held by you with no need to strive. I want to be found abiding in you. 


I pray that your church will rise up and be bold in our unity and love. Help us to look past our own motivations and be thankful that the gospel is being proclaimed. Help us to walk in the joy of unity. 


Thank you that I only have to worry about my own heart and not everyone around me. That you are sovereign and in control of how your name is proclaimed. 


Oh Father, let my life be worthy of the gospel of Christ. For you are worth all of this junk that I endure. And even more. You are worth it. 


Help me to lay down my interests for the sake of the Gospel.

Philippians 1

Pursue

Father, reveal to my heart what I crave. Deliver me from the cravings of my flesh and cause my heart to crave your truth.

.

.

Reveal to me the root of my words. If they are conceited, puffed up, ignorant, or full of controversy and quarrels. Reveal to my heart the results of those kinds of words... envy, dissension, slander or friction. Break the chains of these, I know they flow from my heart.

.

.

Father, help me to press through to pursue righteousness and fight for my faith. Help me to no longer be passive, but to be ready for work through hard things in order to take hold of all that you have for me. 

1 Timothy 6
