The Living Word Of Christ, A Prayer of Supplication and Declaration
Father, open my eyes to see the fullness, wonder and power of Your Word. Cause me to see it as a living Word with power to reveal the very essence of Your being to me. Take me into depths of revelation such as I have never experienced before. Lord I submit myself and the things of the flesh to the power of Your Word and I choose to become obedient to it. Your sacrifice, Your blood has cleansed me from all unrighteousness and I continue to bring my flesh in subjection to the Cross and Your sacrifice.
Help me to be quick to see and hear before I make choices which are unprofitable for me and others. I chose to take my thoughts captive and walk according to the Spirit. As I do this, cut away every oppositional lie of the enemy and insert the truth about who I am in You. Water the garden of My heart and I will grow. I trust You to show me where life’s circumstances and relationship with others have caused me to have wrong belief systems about You and about life. Many times I have listened to the voice of the enemy and took it as my own, believing the things he says about me more than I believe You. I want to be quick to hear You in the midst of his accusations whether they are in thought or through the words of others.
Help me to walk in an assertive, aggressive way when it comes to Your Word. So many other things in my life get my undivided attention and when I really want to do something, I do it. I know it is a fact you can tell what is important to a person by what they do. It is the same with me. Please forgive me for being apathetic in my pursuit of Your Word…Your heart.
Convict me and release me. Show me the hidden dreams of my heart and help me to walk out, with faith, the ones I am aware of. Remove every damn of obstruction which blocks dreams and visions from coming to the surface where they can be heard, seen and embraced. Go to the very roots and remove all hindering factors, all sin and lay waste to the plans and schemes of the enemy. Cause me to be wise as a serpent and gentle as a dove.
Even now as I pray, I can feel my heart softening, becoming tender in response to my time with You and the Words You have spoken over and to me. Always keep me close and I pray I am slow to anger and quick to repent. In doing this my heart like a sponge dipped in water will always be moist and contain enough to be squeezed out into the lives of others.
I receive Your word as a living word. Every syllable of Your word implanted within My heart will not return void. It will accomplish and bring about Your purposes within me and around me. Go deep into the hidden places, hidden even to me, and cut away anything which prohibits me from walking in Your fullness.
I choose to agree with You Father. I choose to agree with the Word. I will meditate, think on and come in to vocal agreement with all You have said to me. Today I draw near to You and You draw near to me. My thinking is transformed by ingesting Your word. I live not according to natural bread but every word that proceeds from Your mouth. Holy Spirit forever keep me in remembrance of the Word…Read Accompanying Love Letter
