The Prayer of the Day Audio Version
Father God, Holy God, Supreme Sovereign LORD GOD, Creator, YAHWEH! Father, we thank You for Providence, for the daily provision of all of our needs, the endless blessings from Your bounty, providing for our temporal as well as our spiritual needs, for in You is a sweet resting place, asylum and shelter from the diverse storms of life, and we give You the praise and worship You so richly deserve.
Father, we bow in serious and sorrowful submission, requesting the forgiveness of all of our sins, our hearts in penitence presenting all the selfish thoughts and deeds, plans and schemes, all of our disobedience and wilfulness, sweeping clean every crack and crevice of our being, as the houses of Israel did the leaven, we do unto our temples of the Holy Spirit. Father, we receive from You in faithful forgiveness the complete absolution of our transgressions, the attendant washing of the blood of Jesus, restored once again unto complete communion.
Father, lead us into Your paths of righteousness for the glory of Your name, empower us to be led by the Holy Spirit, make His voice big in us, that we might not sin against You. Father may we partake richly of the abundant life, found in the blessed communion of the Saints with so Great God, the jewels and wealth of prayer, praise, prophecy and proclamation of Your Holy Word. Father, envision us with sight for the True, the Eternal, the Everlasting and the Forever, that we might acknowledge true wealth and riches, true power, true reality.
Father, help us to discern the counterfeit kingdoms and temporal powers of this fleshly existence and look to the true Kingdom of God, eternal in the Heavens. Father remove the stiffneckedness of our looking and holding to the things of man, the dogmas and doctrines of fools, and put a crick in our necks from ever looking upward, seeking Your face, walking towards the reality of Your Kingdom, living and bringing as much of Heaven down into this sin sick world as possible in the constraints of this age.
Father, deliver us from every temptation and snare of the evil one, from the deceptions of this evil age, from the fleshly manifestations of the kingdom of fools, from the gratifications of the flesh, the desires of the natural man and our carnal appetites.
Father, bless us with discerning hearts and spiritual eyes, with wisdom and knowledge, with power and dominion, with ultimate victory in this great spiritual war. Father, may our dedication, consecration, devotion and sanctification be such that our countenance is a consuming fire of personal Holiness, that the minions of evil will step aside and look for easier targets but at our acquisition of them in our sights we blast them in an outpouring of Holy Spirit Power and the Word of God.
Father, bless the saints of God to walk in victory this day, may all of our intercessions be of success, may everywhere we encounter the forces of darkness we put them to flight, may our prayers be answered in the will of God, and may all the elect decide for You in Your timing, in the mighty and matchless name of Jesus, and by the magnificent power of His blood we pray, amen.
