My Prayer for Power


Dear Lord,

When Your hand has moved in my life

I have seen a glimpse of heaven on earth.

Forgive me for my independent attitude

of believing that I have the power to do Your work.

I beseech You to reach down from the heavens

and put Your mighty hand upon me.

I need and earnestly desire Your strength

working in me, through me,

and around me to do Your work.

So I empty myself and ask You to lavishly fill me

with the full power of Your Spirit

and the glory of Your presence.

By Your hand, I will walk boldly today,

carrying Your light in this dark world.


**** God provides the armor, but we must put it on. The battle is not ours ... To trust is to triumph, for the battle is the Lord's.
