"The one concern of the devil is to keep [us] from praying. He fears nothing from prayerless studies, prayerless work, and prayerless religion. He laughs at our toil, mocks at our wisdom, but trembles when we pray."

- Samuel Chadwick

Abba, Abba, hear my prayer! Who are we that YOU would send YOUR ONLY BEGOTTEN SON? Who are we that YOU would take away the cup of Your righteous wrath? Who are we that our cup should be given to HIM with no blemish? Who are we that YOU would forsake and crush YOUR own SON whom YOU love? Who are we that YOU would go to lengths beyond comprehension to save us from due damnation? Who are we that YOU would even desire to spend eternity with such misfits? Who are we O LORD? Why has YOUR hand of grace ascended into the deepest expanses to scoop us, the children of wrath, out of the pit of destruction? Why? Who can comprehend YOUR infinite love, YOUR enduring patience, and YOUR priceless mercy? Who are we to grumble, to whine, and complain of matters so trivial and temporary? Why are we so blind to the details of our salvation that has been given? Forgive me of my selfishness and self-centeredness! Woe is me!! Why have I not shaken? Why have I not trembled as I should before YOU! Dear JESUS! YOU have consumed my due cup of righteous wrath! Forgive me for taking so lightly the debt that YOU have paid in my place, O how great a price it was for YOU to pay! Let me never forget!  YOU were crushed by the millstones of YAHWEH's wrath, given the cup of HIS righteous wrath and YOU purposely consumed every dreg that eternal life may be opened up to the least deserving of all of creation, mankind! Forgive me O LORD! FATHER, I am guilty of taking payment for my debt without truly reflecting upon the price YOU caused the spotless LAMB to pay in my place! I was so selfish to think that it was my sin alone that caused the SPIRIT to leave the flesh of CHRIST! It was YOU FATHER, it was YOU and YOU alone that sacrificed YOUR BELOVED SON so that we, humanity, would not perish, crushed by our sin in the presence of YOUR ALMIGHTY holiness upon that day! O how YOU love each and every soul! Great is YOUR patience that YOU desire that none would perish, but that all would repent. Thank YOU dear JESUS, what YOU have taken from me YOU have purposefully spared me from one day comprehending! Hallelujah!

Heavenly Father, who can change the seasons with a word? Neither by man, nor by his might doth the earth spin. Who can create light by the rushing of his breath? Can man blow into the soil and create life? Can a man command the wheat or the maze to bear its fruit? Who is mighty before Your eyes O, Lord? Who, of the seed of man, has yet to create a thing? Without You, my GOD, man is as the ostrich. Which leaveth her eggs in the earth, and warmeth them in the dust, and forgetteth that the foot may crush them, or that the wild beast may break them. She is hardened against her young ones, as though they were not hers: her labor is in vain without fear; because GOD hath deprived her of wisdom, nether hath He imparted to her understanding. -Job 39:14-17 Keep me humble O, LORD. I am capable of nothing righteous, only filthy rags. I have created nothing, nor have I spoken a word of power that has brought forth light or the power of life upon or within the soil. It is only through your grace O, LORD that wisdom and understanding is granted unto the mind of man. I consist and exist by Your Word, Your Son, JESUS CHRIST. I find my strength and purpose only in Your plan. My Comfort is found only in Your HOLY SPIRIT. Praise the LORD! The seasons change by His Word and the earth spins by His direction. He hath created Light to pierce the darkness that comprehended it not. By His breath man came to exist, out of soil He brought life. All the fruits of the field produce as a result of His instruction and yield their plenty at His command. No man is great in the eyes of the LORD. Praise the name of the Father, the Son, and the HOLY SPIRIT! By the Blood of CHRIST we are healed and consist. Rejoice in His understanding! Amen


Heavenly Father, I am soothed by the comfort of each and every promise of Your word. With each promise there is truth, hope, and peace of mind. Your promises are anchors in the most terrifying tempest; shelter from the storms that rage. Your promises bring dawn at the end of each night of confusion, light that shines the way. Your promises are whispered to the spirit within each of Your children, whispers of comfort and peace. Your promises flow as living water through the parched soul of the weary, waters of abundant life. Your promises are righteous and shake the foundations of the nations, the wicked tremble and the righteous sing. Your promises are intimately made and perfect in every way. Heavenly Father, You are amazing and awesome. Who can compare? I will shout to the lands and testify before all creation, YOU ARE MY GOD, WORTHY IS YOUR NAME! YOU ARE THE ALPHA AND OMEGA, THE BEGINNING AND THE END, THE FIRST AND THE LAST! IN YOUR HAND IS SEVEN STARS, YOU ARE THE ONLY TRUE AND FAITHFUL WITNESS, AND YOU TEST THE REINS OF ALL MEN'S HEARTS! PRAISE HIM ALL YE PEOPLE, WORSHIP HIM ALL YE LANDS! HE COMES TO JUDGE; WILL HE YET FIND FAITH UPON HIS RETURN? Father, Your will is perfect and true. Let Your will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven. Jesus Christ, my Messiah, come for Your bride who longs for Your return! Holy Spirit, prepare us for the reunion that lies before us, complete within us what You have been sent to do. Amen


Heavenly Father, only by Your strength can I make it through the day. It is by Your hand and Holy Spirit that I can even see the way. I battle inside against the doubts and the lies that the enemy hurls like darts and arrows towards my spirit. Yet I am encouraged by the knowledge that Your Son has already defeated my enemy and has rendered each weapon useless. When the sound of my prayers seem to go no further than my lips, as the night of confusion clouds my vision, and the darkness seems to consume my every move, I hear Your whisper. I am reminded that my Savior Jesus Christ is my advocate before Your throne and Your own Holy Spirit intercedes for me with groaning that cannot even be uttered. None is greater than my God! Praise the name of the Highest King and the Lord of lords. JEHOVAH, JESUS CHRIST, and the HOLY SPIRIT, let these names be upon all lips with breath and with a shout of joy let their holiness be proclaimed unto every ear. Father, lead me not into temptation, but deliver my soul from evil. The enemy of my soul seeks to destroy and devour, but You are my defense! I have run to You and Your holy Pavilion! Under Your wing I have found Your shadow where I have rest and peace, the true comfort of my soul. Come Lord Jesus! Come quickly! What a wonderful day that will be. When we, your children, see the New Jerusalem! The city crafted by the Hands that created the universe and by the Creator who first breathed life into these bones. Amen


Heavenly Father, hear the sigh that leaves upon the breath of our lips. Our eyes have seen and our ears have heard the abominations of the wicked, of which there is no rest. Rest is found only in You my Lord. Only upon the bosom of Christ, between His nail scared hands can this rest and eternal peace be found. There is no safety for the wicked, nor peace in their unrighteousness. Haughty are their spirits, which rise as they fall to new depths. From within the abyss comes their instruction and from the darkness their direction. Blindness has shrouded their eyes. Pride has consumed them. Who can move against JEHOVAH? Who can challenge YOUR seat or attempt to take YOUR throne O, LORD? Let us not be shaken, though in our spirit we are greatly stirred upon seeing Your wrath fall upon the wicked. When the ground moves and the earth splits, let us remain firmly planted upon the Rock of our Salvation, Jesus Christ the Lord! When the consuming fires of Your wrath rains from the heavens upon the nations that have been made to consume Your cup, let us reside safely under Your wing and in the peace of Your shadow. Praise the name of JEHOVAH, YESHUA, and the HOLY SPIRIT! JEHOVAH, let your will be done, on this earth as it is in heaven. Amen


Heavenly Father, I will stand strong on Your word and the promises therein. It is You who gives Your children strength, understanding, and hope for eternity. The enemy has no authority over me. No weapon he forms will prosper or destroy my soul that is in Your possession. You have led me, kept me, and preserved me through the darkest days of my life. You loved me when I did not love You. You kept Your hand of protection upon me, even when I was destroying myself. I have felt the loss and emptiness, the void, the taste of eternal death. When I was ready to give up, YOU WEREN'T READY TO LET ME GO.I have victory in You, Your Son, and Your Spirit O, Jehovah my GOD! My darkest of valleys no longer compare to the days when I was lost and without You. With You I know I am set free and have the hope to endure, knowing that You are in control and have a plan with the best purpose. Thank You Father, though these words cannot truly express my gratitude and love. I am encouraged that You search my heart and know what the enemy cannot. Thank You Jesus, my Christ and eternal Lord! You have freely given what no other could give. Your prayers of intersession have not been lost upon my soul, to You I am eternally grateful! Thank You Holy Spirit for Your direction and guidance. Forgive me for ever grieving You. Let the will of my Father be done in my life and on earth as it is in heaven. Without hindrance, do the work You were sent to do. Amen


Heavenly Father, You are the Lamb without spot or blemish, it was Your priceless blood that was spilt for the iniquity of man. It was my sin that has caused You pain, it is my sin that has caused me great grief. Since I have found You I have been freed and loosed from the bonds of sin that I may greatly rejoice! For it was You that purchased me with the priceless Blood You personally spilt, it is with Your incorruptible Blood that I am eternally preserved. I pray Your tender love and mercy follows me all the days of my life! Amen


Heavenly Father, Thank You for the ability to come before You, to stand before Your throne and offer words of prayer, thanksgiving, and praise. What a privilege it is to come before You, to stand in Your magnificent presence, to bow before You upon humbled knee. I desire only what You have for me, for my life I desire only that which will glorify You, and I desire to live a life that brings honor to Your name. Father give me strength, give me discernment, and help me to love others like You love me. Thank You Father for the life I have found in You! Amen


Heavenly Father, thank You for always being there for me when life becomes so challenging. Thank You for helping me in my path of righteousness and encouraging me to do that which is right. Without You I would have no direction, no safety, no purpose, and certainly no meaningful purpose to live. You have redeemed me, set me free, loosed the chains that held me, cut the ropes that bound me, and conquered the death that once consumed me. Continue to speak to me I pray, open my ears and my eyes, chastise my spirit, and correct my heart. I Love You Jehovah with all of my heart! I pray Your will be done, in mercy and in truth! Amen


Heavenly Father, You are always faithful, excellent and perfect. You have set my eyes upon the righteous path that lays before my feet. You have guided me when direction seemed lost, when the night was dark, and the path vanished from my sight. You have unveiled my eyes so I may receive victory over my oppressors, the enemies of my soul, the thief, the harlot, and the destroyer of many. In You I have found my strength, in You I have found the promise of victory, and in You I am capable of overcoming all impossibilities. Father I want to continue to grow in spirit and in Truth, for all Your paths lead to Truth. Thank You Father for Your Love, thank You Jesus for Your Blood, and thank You Holy Spirit for preparing me for eternity. Amen


Heavenly Father, as I enter into the wilderness, guide me by Your Fire and by Cloud. Keep my mouth free from complaint, free from grumbling, and free from the selfish words of self-pity. It is You who has called me out to this place, it is You who has directed me to stand, and upon this Rock You have placed beneath my feet I will courageously carry out Your Heavenly command. For You have shod my feet with the preparation of the gospel of Peace, my loins You have girt about with Truth, You have secured upon my chest the breastplate of Righteousness, placed upon my head the gleaming helmet of Salvation, You have issued me the shield of Faith to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked, and in the other hand You have fixed the sword of Your Spirit. I prepare for battle praying always and with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, watching always in the Spirit, that I may hear the utterance, that I may open my mouth boldly, making known the mystery of the Gospel. You are my commander, You are my Leader, and in You I have a faith that can never be surrendered. You have laid Your life down for me, may I never be afraid to lay mine down for You. May the battle begin, may I prove my faith, and may I victoriously march back through Your Glorious Gate! Amen


Heavenly Father, pour Your Spirit into me as a river of living water, saturating me with life and hope. Plunge me to Your deepest depths, challenging my spirit to dive further still as I rely on Your hand as my refuge and strength. In You I am free of worry and capable of overcoming all doubt, let me see and know how to follow these keys to victory. Since You are for me, who can be against me, who can challenge my God and win? You have emboldened me to stand up for truth, shout genuine praise, and sing the songs of Your just righteousness. It is in You that I have been set free, it is in You that I am able to see, and it is in You that I will eternally trust. As long as I have this breath in my lungs and life in my bones I will profess with my tongue the love You have shown, no greater love than this, to save a wretch like me. Heavenly Father thank You for sending Your Son to die in my place, Jesus if not for You I would be void of grace, and Holy Spirit thank You for the encouragement to daily stand by faith. Amen


Heavenly Father, I pray I will never suffer the terrors bound within the hopeless existence of a soul void of Your presence, let me not forget where I would be if it were not for the graciousness of Your righteous hand. You have saved me from the pit of my certain destruction and have instead placed me at the seat of mercy, it is here that I am able to bask in Your divine compassion! I am forgiven by the blood of Your Son, baptized in the fire of Your very own Holy Spirit, and consumed by no greater Truth than the Truth that You truly are the Almighty God! In You will I eternally reside, in You will I forever trust, and in You I have found no greater Love. Thank You Father for the gift of Your priceless love, Thank You Jesus for selflessly spilling your precious blood for the cleansing of my sins, and Holy Spirit thank You for the peace that is enjoyed within my soul. Amen
