A Selfish Prayer

1_john_5_14Father, I know you love me for it is not written that I am the righteousness of God in Christ; am I not your beloved child; your very special possession for have I not chosen you as my Lord and savior? Art thou not my salvation?

I know you are with me. I know you are for me. I know you abide in me. I know you are HE who sustains me. I know there is an appointed time for everything under the sun and in my life.

Father, you who have collected my tears; you who have counted the strands of hair on my head; you who knew me and formed me before the foundation of the earth – does not your word say there is no shame for those whose trust and hope is in you? Father your word says surely you will bless me. Your word says that you will increase me and my children more and more. Your word says that I am your special possession. Your word says ask and it shall be given unto you. This I declare unto me for that is what you have promised me and Lord, I am holding you to it.  

Father, you know my needs. You knew I would be resting at the feet of Christ Jesus this day for is it not written that Christ is my life? Is it not written that you will give him perfect peace whose mind is steadfast – whose trust is in you? Teach me thy way Oh Lord, Guide me in your truth, for it is not written that you have made known to me the path of life? Teach me to have a heart as yours – to love unconditionally, to not judge, to let go of those things which I have no control over.

Help my unbelief and show me daily how to trust you. Heal me and my family. Remove the generational curses that are upon my family. Heal our hearts and teach us to forgive. Release us from bitterness, confusion and selfishness. Remove any fears or insecurities. Soften our hearts to receive what you have in store for us. Teach us to live in your grace. Open our hearts and minds to you who loves us without fail for does not your word say every day He faileth not, and so I believe and I praise your name for the appointed time as I stand in faith until I am blessed, me and mine, abundantly in your riches and glory – until you open your treasures in heaven and rain upon our land in due season and you will indeed bless every work of my hand. Shield of God’s favor rest upon me and mine as I declare God’s goodness, love, blessings and favor on the lives of me and my family. Quiet our souls with your love.  Clothe us with the garments of praise and anoint us with the oil of gladness. Return to us joy, unspeakable joy! Oh Father, I sorely need you. Holy Spirit guide me and be my strength and I give God all the glory for answered prayer! In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
