Prayer for Today

Father, I pray for a spirit of diligence. Too often I start out doing something and then I allow it to fall to the wayside. No matter what it is that I start; a new eating program, an exercise program, spending more time with You, I always starts well but I don’t continue in my pursuit.

I get discouraged, frustrated and sometime even bored so I stop doing what I need to do and go back to doing the very things I want to stop doing. Father, forgive me and help me!

Father I know Your word says that the diligent become rich, not just rich in money but rich in our knowledge of You, our character and our ability to withstand obstacles when they come against me while I doing Your will.

I know Your word says that I will get what I want if I don’t stop doing what is right and I continue to press forward. I also know that a sluggard, someone who is too lazy to continue to do what they’re supposed to do, will want things but won’t get anything. I am not a sluggard and will not live as a sluggard. I will get what I want because I will trust and believe Your word Lord and I will be diligent.

I thank You Lord because the Holy Spirit in me will press me towards diligence! In Jesus name I pray. Amen!

Father God, please forgive me for not being diligent and working on the assignments You have placed in my life.

Lord, You have set me free from the law of sin and death, and yet I choose to live as if I was still bound to the dead things of this world. You have freed me to walk in the fullness of Your word, and yet I’m content watching the foolishness of the world on TV and the internet rather than chasing after You.

Help me walk in the freedom that Jesus won for me. Free my mind and my spirit to have a fuller relationship with You through Christ Jesus. Free my mind and spirit to please You rather than man. Free my mind and spirit from being concerned about the world’s view. Free me to be single focused on Your view.

Father, help me walk in the freedom that comes from knowing that all my sins are forgiven. There is no guilt or shame that can control me unless I decide to remain bound to my sins that You’ve forgiven me for committing. I have been set free by the Son of God; therefore, now and forever more, I am free! In Jesus name I pray, amen.

Prayer for Today

ForgiveneessLenten season challenge: Read the scriptures that are referenced at the bottom of each prayer every day during this Lenten season!

March 11, 2015

Lord, I am blessed because You have forgiven all my sins. You have erased all of my transgressions and You have removed my iniquities, immorality, injustice, wickedness, and sin far from me. You have, for Your own sake, forgotten all that I have done wrong.

Father, why do I hold myself hostage to my past? Why do I continue to judge myself by what I used to be or what I used to do? It’s because I haven’t forgiven myself. A lack of self-forgiveness leaves me sitting outside the doors of the life You want and have ordained for me to live. Please forgive me for not forgiving myself.

Today, and each day forward, I pledge to hold myself to a different standard. Not the worlds’ standards that keep track of every wrong I’ve ever committed, but Your standards that give me new mercies every morning so that I may live, breathe and have my being in You.

I submit myself to You, Father; remove the anger, fear and lack of self-esteem or anything that is in me as a result of harboring what I was. I press to move into who You’ve called me to be.

In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
