O God, I praise You for You are greater and stronger than any other. Father, You are fulfilling Your purpose in the earth and there is not a thing that the powers of darkness can do to block, hinder, or stop Your Kingdom from advancing and coming. God, thank You for choosing me to be Yours and to partner with You in Your eternal purpose by Your sovereign grace. Though I often want to quit, thank You for not giving up on me and continually moving me forward towards You.
O God, I am asking You to bring me to the end of me so that You may fully have Your way to, in, and through my life. God, do and use whatever You need to to bring me to that place. Break me of my arrogance, pride, self-righteousness, self-sufficiency, selfishness, sin, worldliness and humble me before Your holy and majestic presence. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit and help me to live continually in Your manifest presence.
God, I am asking You to set my life ablaze with Your holy fire. Burn off everything in my life that is not from You, like You, or of You. Bring me to the place where I hate sin, especially in my own heart and life. Don't let me play around with sin but to kill it. Help me to put this flesh to death and to live by the Spirit. Burn into me the very character of Christ - the fruit of the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:22,23). God, drain the love of this world from my heart as You fill me with Your love beyond measure to the point where it spills out freely upon others.
Father, help me to love You above all else. Make me a God chaser who chases You with reckless abandon and pursues You with everything I have until the day that I see You face to face and hear You say 'Well done my good and faithful servant.' Every day help me to willingly and joyfully decrease as Jesus increases in me that I can genuinely say like the Apostle Paul 'It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me.'
Teach me to war in the Spirit for the weapons of my warfare are not of the flesh but mighty through God to pull down demonic strongholds; to cast down imaginations and high things that exalt themselves above the knowledge of God; and to take captive every thought to the obedience of Jesus Christ our Lord. Jesus, You have granted me authority over all the power of the enemy. So help me to yield to Your authority that I may wield Your authority in a manner that glorifies Your name and builds Your Kingdom. God, empower me to daily submit unto You, resist the devil, so that he may flee from me.
God, break me free from the fear of man and teach me to fear Your holy name. Lord Jesus help me to do all that I do as unto You and not unto men for my reward and inheritance are from You the One I serve. As You charged Joshua, help me to be a man who is strong and courageous, who is not terrified nor dismayed, for You, the Lord my God, are with me wherever I go. Make me a man, like Daniel, who knows my God and is strong and does great exploits in the powerful name of Jesus.
