I Pray LIFE Over You


Welcome to week 4 of the “Fridays Are For Faith ‘n Friends” blog hop! I’m honored to have you guys join me again today and I pray that you’ll join me here every Friday for prayer, love, and encouragement. As I explained in week 1, I may not be writing a message every Friday, but I will have a focal passage of Scripture in which I will be meditating on as I write a prayer to encourage your hearts. I will also be available to pray with or for you throughout the day and you can contact me for prayer anytime by clicking here. Also, each week I will share with you my favorite post from the previous week’s link-up.  … So, link-up, be encouraged, and spread the love!

(Job 33:4 NIV- The Spirit of God has made me; the breath of The Almighty gives me Life.)

As I began to meditate on today’s focal verse I felt The Holy Spirit completely consume me. And as I began to personalize that verse and pray it over my own life, my heart began to not just grasp, but tightly grip and take a hold of the beauty, power, and Truth within each and every word. And so, as you are here visiting with me today, know that it is not my chance, but by divine appointment that I get to pray The Life held within this verse over your life today. May you feel His Holy and perfect Presence like never before.

Abba, I come before You this morning asking that You would help us to open our hearts and minds to truly understand, firmly embrace, and wholly receive The Truth that is Your Word. For Father we know that within Your Word lies the purpose and Life that the depths of our hearts so desperately long and cry out for. … Lord, Your Spirit has masterfully made us and it is Your very breath that gives us Life. I thank You for Your Life within us and I ask that with each and every breath we take that You would continually breathe new Life within our beings; mind, body, soul, and spirit that we would operate by Your Spirit, through Your power, and according to Your purpose. I ask that Your Holy Spirit would infiltrate and consume us in such a way that we would become one with You; that our hearts would beat to the rhythm of Your heartbeat. Abba, we long for more You. Fill us with the fullness of Christ and help us to live, stand, breathe, and rest assured that it is Your very Life that lives within us and in You we lack nothing. Father, we love you more today than yesterday. Our love for You is ever-increasing as we come to know the depths of Your heart for us. You are a good Father and we thank You that You never leave us nor forsake us. We honor You and we give You all of the glory. In the mighty name of Jesus Christ, Your precious Son, and our Lord and Savior— I pray, Amen and so be it.

The song below is one of my favorite songs to sing before God as I enter His Presence every morning. I believe that singing is one of the most intimate ways to worship, praise and just love on The Lord. The song says, “Set a fire down in my soul that I can’t contain and I can’t control. I want more of You, God”. I don’t know about you, but everyday I long for more of Him. I want His Spirit to ignite and passionately burn within my soul. And so, everyday, I sing to The Lord and I ask Him for more of all that is Him in my life and the beauty in that is— He never denies me, but freely and graciously gives of Himself. So today, even if you don’t sing, I just want to encourage you to just begin to ask The Lord for more of His Presence in your life and watch how He will amaze you as He begins to reveal Himself to you.

Happy Friday! I love you guys!

Believe, Be Beautiful, Be Brilliant, and Be Blessed! 🙂
