Prayer for the year 2010
I come consecrating this year to You. I commit myself to Your will, Your Word, and Your ways. I thank You in advance for all that you are going to do in my life this year. I thank You for planting me in this place and time in history. Come Holy Spirit; lead, direct, guide, discipline and comfort me every day. I give You full access to my heart. Nothing is off limits to You. The things I've kept hidden in closets and attics and under rugs in my life: I'm giving You permission to begin and continue the process of cleaning, healing and restoring. I'm giving You permission to wash me with Your Word, Your love and healing grace. Guide me from the inside out. I ask you God from here and now for irreversible change. I ask You to transform me into the person You created me to be; doing the things You created me to do. I give You permission to take me on what ever path You in Your sovereignty want to take me down. I lay down my agenda. I lay down my assumptions of what life is supposed to look like. I yield to You. I want to experience my greatest adventure in life walking with You. I acknowledge I don't know all I think I know. I bow my knee to You my sovereign Lord realizing there is nothing that You do not know. You have invited me into intimacy with You. You have invited me into a relationship with You. By all means I accept, understanding that requires my surrendering my personal agenda and will. But knowing that Your will and Your ways are perfect. And perfect for me. I commit myself to You. Come Jesus. You're invited. I love You. I adore You. I thank You for what You have done for me. I ask you to bless this year with Your truth. I ask for Your strength and empowerment. I want to receive a double portion of Your grace. I believe, help my unbelief. Bolster my faith in You. I want to bask in the sweetness of Your presence. I want to find my delight and rest in You. Heal my “fractured faith.” Restore my faith. May this be my year of breakthrough, my year of triumph, my year of overcoming. Holy Spirit come and move me and center me into a position that aligns me with You, Your truth, Your heavenly portals. I want to see You more clearly. I want to see this world through Your eyes. I want to see myself as You see me. I want to experience visions, dreams, prophetic words, all the gifts You have for me. I want to recover more ground that the enemy had stolen from me. Draw me closer to You. Let me hear the beat of Your heart. Let me rest in the comfort of Your arms. May Your face shine upon me and give me peace. May I be a channel of Your love. In Jesus name, amen.
