A PRAYER WE ALL CAN PRAY TOGETHER IN THIS NEW DAY.
IN CASE YOU NEED A RESTORATION IN YOUR LIFE OR MINISTRY AS MOST OF US DO, THEN, THIS INSPIRED WORDS OF PRAYER MIGHT JUST HELP YOU RE-START THE PROCESS IN THIS DAY OF HONORING THE RESURRECTION OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST.
ANYONE CAN PRAY THIS PRAYER, AND YOU CAN ALWAYS RETURN BACK TO IT WHENEVER YOU FEEL LIKE IT.
Father, as I join millions of the body of Christ to commemorate and honor the glorious reality of the death, burial, resurrection, and ascension of our Lord Jesus Christ on Calvary over 2000 years ago.
I————–dedicate my entire spirit, soul, and body anew to you this day. I offer myself as a new living sacrifice, holy and acceptable for you and you alone.
I return to the place of the renewal of the covenant and relationship you made with me and my generation. I come this day to the place of your mercy, goodness, and forgiveness. I have come to the place of your cleansing with pure water of your word, for your word is truth.
I come to your mercy seat. Father, in the name of your Son Jesus Christ of Nazareth, who died to give me a new life, eternal joy and hope, I declare with my lips this day that I belong to you, and you alone. Like the prodigal son, I return home to you, my first and only true love.
Forgive me for taking advantage of my position as a son in the house; forgive me for spending and wasting my inheritance on things that carries no eternal value. Forgive me for taking advantage of your love and provision as a son. Forgive me for not waiting on you, and for you to continue to provide for me according to your progressive plan and purpose for me.
Forgive me for not trusting in you even though I daily profess your name. I repent for looking into the world system to meet my needs and supplies even though they never satisfy. Forgive me of my lack of understanding of your ways and intent even when you’ve made it so clear in your word.
Forgive me of my insecurity when you are my father; teach me to embrace your fatherhood and love in this spirit of love and sincerity. This day, I realize that without the ongoing reality of Christ truth, growing and expanding daily in my thoughts, emotions, and desire, I will slide back down to seeking worldly things in trying to meet my needs.
I acknowledge that nothing in this current, dysfunctional world system can give me a lasting satisfaction; no money, fame, influence, individuals, position, and calling can replace your peace, faith, joy and hope in my life.
I come to the place of the cross; the place of abandonment of my fear, sorrow, failures, weakness, shame, greed, pride, and self-serving attitude. I take up my cross this day, and I chose to follow you to the place of death, where it will no longer be I who lives but Christ, the hope of all glory.
I declare with my mouth that I am not ashamed of the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, for it is the power of salvation and redemption of all creation, young, and old, rich or poor. Grant me the understanding to know that my first priority in life, regardless of my position of influence is to win abiding souls into your kingdom.
Awaken my love and passion for your assignment in my heart again. Help me to shift awsu from the self-centered narrative of the gospel. Grant me grace and boldness like you granted David, Ruth, Joseph, Esther, Daniel and his company to stand firm in this hour of the fallen away. Grant me your love and compassion to see the Whitefield, ready for harvest.
Make me again a passionate instrument and vessel of your harvest for my community and generation. Rebrand me with your Spirit that releases kingdom passion and compassion heart for the poor and spiritually blind and confused.
Grant me again the quickening Spirit that resurrected my Lord after three days from the grave. Quicken me by your wonderful Spirit. Let this new day of resurrection bring me to a place of spiritual height and rest; it’s my desire to accelerate in my calling and purpose.
Awaken my spirit with boldness, courage, and wisdom to see the world the way you see it, and approach it the way you desire me to approach it. Help me to hear the joyful sound of your Spirit, calling out a generation that will stand out for you in this third day reformation.
Grant me again a broken and a contrite heart that will stand firm with the truth. Yes, it is my desire to stand and advance the ministry of your truth in this season, particularly, as the message of materialism takes deep root within the hearts of men across the church.
Help me not to compromise my position with you. Grant me the revelatory wisdom to carry enough midnight oil, in waiting for you, and your prophetic intent of my community, city, and generation. Help me not to go into slumber.
Grant me the strength of heart to wait upon you in all things. Father, I receive your love; the love you gave me and the rest of creation when my Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross.
I receive the love you showed the church when you resurrected him on the third day. Yes, I receive the love and glory you manifested during his forty days of preaching and teaching about his kingdom after his resurrection.
I receive the love and revelatory knowledge of the ascended life and nature; yes father, I am seated with you this day in heavenly places, far above all principalities, wicked spirits, and powers in heavenly places. I take my place of eternal victory in you over the forces of darkness. I take my stand as your representative and ambassador in the earthy and heavenly spheres.
I declare that I have victory over every false unhealed emotion that seeks to control and manipulate me. My feelings, this day receives the healing balm of your word and Spirit.
I bind my thoughts, desires, passions, feeling, and my entire emotional sensory faculties to the staying power of the word of life. I will no longer be ruled and controlled by my old appetites and desires.
I speak your quietness and rest to my mind and soul. I declare this day that my spirit, soul, and body is in agreement to God’s divine agenda. My destiny is anchored on Christ eternal plan for me and my family. I do not give in the spirit of humanism; I am sent to represent the kingdom of God here on earth.
Therefore, my entire intent and objectives streams towards fulfilling my assigned, prophetic mandate. I have grace that abounds unto all good works. I have more than enough to carry and fulfill Christ ultimate desire for my life and family.
I am secure in Christ. I am perfect in Christ. I am healed in Christ. I am blessed and highly favored in Christ. My destiny is in Christ. I will not fail nor be destroyed by the enemy for I know that he who has begun a good work in me this day will perfect it unto the day of his glorious appearance.
I am counted as a true citizen of the commonwealth of heaven. Greater is he who is in me than the spirit of worry, doubt, anxiety, fear, disparity, rejection, racism, lack, and poverty in the world system.
I declare this day that I bring a new fragrance of hope and life to creation. I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. I stand for peace, justice, equity, reformation, transformation and development in my community, city, and the world at large.
I will no longer be silenced by the enemy. I shall no longer be afraid to declare where I stand. I will not be side-lined by my weakness and limitation, for I can do all things assigned to me as ministry in Christ Jesus.
I proclaim that I am a member of the ecclesia of God in the earth, and through me, the knowledge of the glory of Christ is covering the earth as the waters covers the sea. I will live and not die to continue to raise the standard of the advancement of the kingdom of God wherever I go.
I am now a renewed, reengineered, and re-empowered saint who will continue to show the love and goodness of my father to a world that desperately need Christ. I will allow my life to be a salt and light to my family, colleagues, and community.
Thank you for supplying all my needs according to your riches and wisdom in Christ Jesus. I wait for your best time and season in meeting all things.
Thank you, Jesus Christ, for dying and resurrecting for me and my generation. I will always put my trust and hope in you regardless of the trial and challenges you may allow to come my way. I believe they are there to build and perfect me into all good works.
May your kingdom continue to prosper through my hands within the church community and everywhere I go to represent you. You are sovereign in all things, and nothing is out of control with you. Your kingdom is now advancing in me and through me,and the gates of hell shall not prevail over me and your corporate church.
Thank you for a new day and a new season of resurrection in my life, family, and ministry. In Jesus Christ name I pray Amen.
