GRATITUDE

May 25, 2023

 Psalms 150:6 Let everything that has breath praise the LORD. Praise the LORD!

You may not have everything you want but observing what you have, you need to see how far God has brought you and allow gratitude to be the platform from which you present all your petitions, supplications and requests before God.

Philippians 4:6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with THANKSGIVING, let your requests be made known to God;

Gratitude causes you to think right and aligns your mind, into a position of receiving more from God. That is why we need to always correctly reposition our attitudes when we come before the Lord in prayer.

Prayer :

May the Lord re-work us so that we may do His will.

John 6:44 No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day.

We thank You Father for always drawing us according to Your mercy, grace, and love.

We thank You Holy Spirit for always quickening us to call on Your name Psalms 80:18.

Hebrews 11:6 But without faith [it is] impossible to please [Him,] for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and [that] He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

We thank You our Lord. You are the only confidence we have because everything is possible with you.

Luke 22:42 saying, “Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done.” 

Even as we cry out to you, it’s our cry that not our will but Yours be done in every affair of our lives.

Psalms 61:2 From the end of the earth I will cry to You, When my heart is overwhelmed; Lead me to the rock that is higher than I 3 For You have been a shelter for me, A strong tower from the enemy.

We yield our lives, desires and yearnings to You Holy Spirit. Overshadow and overcome us because you are the rock that is higher than us.

We look away from anything else and look unto you the author and finisher of our faith, You who will perfect everything that concerns us.

Hebrews 7:25 Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.

Romans 8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

We agree with the prayer of saints, the speaking of the blood on the mercy seat concerning our lives.

Above all, as we pray, we yield to Your Spirit that Your will may be done so that we are metamorphosed into the image of the Son of God.

Captivate our souls so that we may no longer live for ourselves and carry us into grounds we know not. Help us to explore the virgin grounds in the spirit. (2 Corinthians 5:13-15)

Let enlargement come into our hearts that we may accommodate Your agenda here on earth.

We pray Lord that You become the meat, desire, and longing of our hearts in Jesus’ mighty name. Amen

STAY BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVORED, WE LOVE YOU.
