Prayer for Today

God is preparing you for greatness

February 3, 2016

Father, You have given me a heart to go after my destiny by using the gifts, talents and abilities You placed in me at the beginning of time. Now Lord, give me the plan for fulfilling my life purpose.

Lord, put good people around me as wise counsel so my plans will succeed. Allow the Holy Spirit to lead and guide me into all Your truths. Allow me to write the vision You’ve given me for my ministry/my business. With the guidance of the Holy Spirit and the help of others, I will see my vision come to fruition. Strengthen my heart so that I will not grow weary of doing good.

Help me to focus on my destiny not my past Lord so I can remain steadfast, immovable and not swayed by the storms of life. If I keep my eyes on You, I will remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty, who no foe can stand against.

This year I will be steadfast in pursuit of my destiny! I will not be defeated! This is my “Yes” year! In Jesus name. Amen.

Father, as I press to reach the greatness that You have deposited in me, I must remember that obedience to You is paramount in my quest to be all You created, planned and purposed me to be for Your glory. My obedience means more to You than any sacrifice I could make. (I Samuel 15:22)

I know You’re going to tell me to do some things, send me some down some paths that I don’t want to travel and allow me to go through some difficult and dark situations and circumstances. Father, in those times I need Your help maneuvering past my feelings so I can remain obedient to You because You require obedience. (Deuteronomy 5:33)

I may never know why You had me travel the paths where You led me but I still have to obey Your word in general (the Bible) and Your specific word to me. (Psalm 128:1) I know I will never achieve the greatness You have in store for me without my complete obedience to You. (Jeremiah 7:23)

Help me Father today and every day to submit to You. (Romans 6:19 and James 4:7) Help me not to hold anything back from You, but instead help me give You my everything and become Your love in the world as I become lost in You. (II John 1:6). In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Father, I want to thank You this morning for Your protection from dangers seen and unseen. You have been protecting me all my life, sometimes it didn’t feel like You were there, but even then You were protecting me from things and people that could have changed the course of my life for the worse or even taken my life.

Father sometimes Your protection is in the form of rejection, which is never a pleasant experience. Rejection makes my heart sink, causes me to feel inferior and makes me want to hide away because my feelings are hurt but, the reality is this: You use rejection as a tool to keep me safe from people, situations and circumstances that You know are not a part of Your call and plan for my life. Help me to see rejection as a gift from You.

Father, sometimes You use financial difficulty, illness or even the loss of a loved one to keep me safe and protect me from the schemes and plans of the enemy.

Lord, I declare that starting today I will not fight against Your protection of me. I will not grow angry, resentful or envious of others when You are at work covering, keeping and protecting me. Thank You for loving me so much You are willing to do whatever it takes to protect me from any and every one, or thing, that would harm me. You even protect me from me! Thank you Father!

In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
