Merciful God, thank You that You make all things new. Thank You for the victory and power in Your Name. Thank You that You hold the keys over death, that by Your might, Jesus was raised from the grave, paving the way for us to have new life with You. Thank You that You had plan, and that You made a way ……
We confess our need for You ….. fresh … new … again. We ask that You renew our hearts, minds, and lives, for the days ahead. We pray for Your refreshing over us and we ask for a refilling of Your Holy Ghost infusing us with fresh power and anointing this day ….
Keep Your words of truth planted firm within us, help us to keep focused on what is pure and right, give us the power to be obedient to Your Word …..
And when the enemy reminds us where we have been, hissing his lies and attacks our way, we trust that Your voice speaks louder and stronger, reminding us we are safe with You and that Your purposes and plans will never fail …..
We ask that You will be our defense and rear guard, keeping our way clear, removing the obstacles, and covering the pitfalls. Lord, lead us on your level ground. Go before us preparing the path that we may follow steadfastly ….
Lord of life, we pray for all who bring Your Word of life as a light to those in darkness …..
For those who bring Your Word of peace to those enslaved by fear ….
For those who bring Your Word of love to those in need of comfort ….
Lord of love and Lord of peace, Lord of resurrection life; be known in and through our lives, and near to our hearts …..
We give you all praise and glory that through Your unfathomable power Jesus Christ is alive and risen to life today. We honor you forevermore. Amen ….
