A PRAYER FOR MORE OF YOU

Feb 28, 2024

Our Father in heaven, we thank You for always drawing us to call on Your name. Our hearts and souls thirst for You, and everything within us cries out for Your presence.

We are Your temple; we belong to You and ask You to fill us with Your glory and circulate our hearts with Your presence. It is You we desire, thirst, pursue, and seek after. 1 Corinthians 6:19

Please open up the wells of Your salvation, the windows of heaven and the fountains of the deep, and drench us with Your Heavenly rains.

Move among us and cover our land, churches, homes, families, and our children as the waters covered the earth at the beginning. (Genesis 1:1-2)

Just as David prayed;

My soul waits for the Lord more than those who watch for the morning— Yes, more than those who watch for the morning. Psalm 130:6

So, we desire You Lord more than our necessary food. We yearn, thirst, and long for You. Please hear the longing of our souls and respond to our hunger and thirst.

For we know that one day with You is better than a thousand elsewhere- it is our satisfaction and fulfilment. Psalms 84:10

Lord, You are an infinite God. There is more to You than what we have seen, heard and experienced;

EZEKIEL 47:1-6 [5] Again he measured one thousand, and it was a river that I could not cross; for the water was too deep, water in which one must swim, a river that could not be crossed…

Lord Jesus, please draw us to deeper levels in You and cause us to swim; fully immersed, baptized, and socked that everything in and on us may come under the full influence of the river of Your Spirit.

The things of this world have left us dry, no amount of achievement, success, men or wealth can take us there but only the river of Your presence Psalms 46:4.

Draw Your body that we may run after You. Be our desire, pursuit, vision, dream, plans, strategy, and not anything of men!

Psalm 73:25 Whom have I in heaven but You? And there is none upon earth that I desire besides You.

It is You who lives to make intercession for us. You are our faithful and merciful High Priest, who is rich unto all who call on You. Father, please cause Your face to shine upon us and light us up.

Zechariah 4:6, Acts 2, Psalms 89:19

 It was by Your Spirit that the Apostles did wonders; their increase and success was because of You; for You were their help.

Lord, have mercy upon us, where we took your glory thinking it was us: our wisdom, talent, and charisma, please mercy us and forgive us; We recognize and come to full awareness that it is Your mercy, grace, goodness, love, and benevolence.

Psalms 124:1-5

When men arose against us, it was You who saved us. You have been the help of our countenance even when we did not know, feel or see You. 

You have never turned your back on us. We know every good gift and every perfect gift is from above and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning… James 1:17.

By Your grace and mercy, we strip ourselves, by Your Word and the precious blood of our Lord Jesus Christ, of every contamination, and corruption that resists Your work in us; that we may be vessels of honour to the glory of Your name. 

1 Thessalonians 5:23 Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Make a transformation and makeover in our spirit, soul and body because You who called us is faithful and You will do it as we surrender to You in prayer and fasting, both individually and as a church.

You the lifter of men, shift us Lord to match the seasons, challenges, and dimensions by applying ourselves to Your Word, instructions, and guidance to manifest You according to the times and seasons we are in, in Jesus’ mighty name.

STAY BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVORED, WE LOVE YOU.
