Thank you for your love for me!

Lord this day let me remember that you have signed a marriage covenant with me one that cannot be broken and is eternal.  Help me see your love for me is greater than I could have hoped.  

You have touched my most inner and secret heart with your wisdom and gospel.  You have made me your own and set me aside to have a personal and deep relationship with me.  You have opened your heart to me in Messiah Jesus and seek now for me to open my heart to you.  

My great transgressions because of your sacrifical LOVE you have pardoned, erased, taken away, and will never mention to me again all that I have confessed.

 Thank you for your great mercy, compassion, commitment, devotion, and passion for me.  I am not worthy of such great LOVE.  

Let me see more clearly the wonder of who you are Lord that I might respond with pure and passionate love for you, which will lead me into a lifestyle of following you in all I do and say.  Lord have mercy, transform me through your promises.  Amen

Lord remember your WORD!

Lord you word is established forever, it is enduring and sure, Every atom in the universe serves you and awaits to hear you utter a word of power to determine its course.  Your true principles of life given as a gift to me have provided for me sanity and stability in the worst of times.  Help me to never forget what you have taught me.  

Grant that what I have seen in the light of your word, I will not doubt during the darkness of difficult times.  Thank you for preserving my faith, love, and hope in YOU.  

Defeat the enemies of my soul this day by your great power for your glory, my good, and so I might be of some good in helping others this day.  Lord have mercy upon me according to the promises of your Word.  Amen (Psalm 119:89-96)

Lord, lift me up I am fainting!

Lord, today my inward self is fainting and desires to experience and know your saving presence and power much more than I do.  I feel like my vision is failing.  I need to see the fulfillment of your promises this day.  When will you come to lift me up?  

I trust your gospel to be true. Help me to increase my trust in your promises to me.  Help me to not forget the gospel regardless of the circumstances I now face.  

Look upon the attacks of the dark forces that assault me and by your blood and testimony defeat them.  Make known your victory at the cross through my life. Help me to never forsake your truth.  

Thank you for your unfailing love for me proven in your sacrifice upon the tree and resurrection from the dead.  May my life this day reflect your redemption.  Amen

Lord save us now!

Lord, I am thankful that you have forgiven me because of your sacrifice upon the cross and I am glad th   at those in glory with you have also forgiven me my many failures.  Only in your grace do I have hope. 

Help me forgive others as you have forgiven me.  Grant me wisdom in the darkness of our times.  Help me not lose my way.  Lead me good shepherd through this mist of doubts, misgivings, and lies.  Be the light to my path. 

Dry my tears and give me comfort.  Lift me out of my weakness with your strength.  Abide in me and let your life flow through me.  Renew and restore my soul and spirit that I may follow you.  

Save us from the insanity of our times.  Raise up leaders of character and competence.  Crush the forces of irrationality and fear.  Lord have mercy.  Save us!  Amen

Enduring Faith
by Anonymous
I've dreamed many dreams that never came true,
I've seen them vanish at dawn,
But I've realized enough of my dreams, thank God,
To make me to want to dream on.
I've prayed many prayers when no answer came
Though I waited patient and long,
But answers have come to enough of my prayers
To make me keep praying on.
I've trusted many a friend that failed,
And left me to weep alone,
But I've found enough of my friends true blue,
To make me keep trusting on.
I've sown many a seed that fell by the way
For the birds to feed upon,
But I've held enough golden sheaves in my hands
To make me keep sowing on.
I've drained the cup of disappointment and pain
And gone many days without song,
But I've sipped enough nectar from the roses of life
To make me want to live on.

Lord have mercy!

Eternal, REAL, everlasting,infinite, all knowing, all powerful,perfectly good, perfectly wise, perfectly merciful, living TRIUNE SPIRIT of LOVE and RIGHTEOUSNESS, help me now to experience the truth that you are here with me, over me, under me, around me, and in me.  May I praise you for being the wonder you are in awesome greatness, goodness, and grace.  No words can adore you adequately.  Silence before you makes more sense except you enjoy the poor finite loving babbling of your children.  So I come babbling at your bidding.  

Lord, the extreme brokenness of my soul, the impact of my sin on others, the pain I have caused by my actions and lack of action is weighing on me. 

I need your forgiveness of such grave transgressions of failing to love others as I ought to love them.  But even forgiveness is not enough. 

I need you to help and heal those I have hurt.  I not only need the forgiveness of the moral wickedness of my failure to love but also help in making restitution where I can to those who I have failed.  But there is so little I can do to make anything right and so many things are broken beyond all repair. 

Please repair, restore, and heal what I have made a mess of and grant strength to those that suffer because of my not understanding how to wisely or rightly love day by day.  Help me to learn to love better. Lord, fill me with your love.  

Lord we are in the place that Jeremiah spoke of long ago. 

Jeremiah 2:13 NASB - "13 "For My people have committed two evils:They have forsaken Me,The fountain of living waters,To hew for themselves cisterns,Broken cisternsThat can hold no water."

Lord, save us from our insanity.  Revive, renew, restore, and reform your people.  Help us find our way back to our first love.  Holy Spirit come and fill us with a new revelation of the greatness of the love of Messiah/Christ Jesus.  Help us see how much we have been forgiven that we might love you more. Lord now come to us and help us be the healers of the nations. 

Lord send out your light that the darkness might be overcome.  Bring revival to the Middle East and with that an end to ISIS.  Bring revival to the United States and the world and with that the end of abortion.  Let your presence and knowledge of the gospel become so great that it might flood the whole earth with grace even as the waters of Noah flooded it with judgment.  Flood us with your grace.  Without it we have no hope.  

Give the persecuted church the strength to endure under torture and oppression.  Lift up our bleeding brothers and sisters and help them.  Lord turn the heart of their persecutors towards you.  Give power to your church under pressure.  Lord have mercy.  Help them! 

Only YOU can save us.  We cannot save ourselves.  We are spiritually poor and have nothing without YOU.  Jesus only Jesus can save us.  Lord Jesus save us.  Lord have mercy, Christ have mercy, Lord have mercy.

Giver of all good gifts, Help us!

Good, great, and graceful eternal heavenly Father in Christ Jesus and by the regeneration of the Holy Spirit.  The good giver of every good gift.  Help me to see your awesome character and competence in my life and praise you for all you have given me from my forgiveness to my creation.  

Center me in your presence.  Let me be in the reality that you are over me, around me, under me, and in me.  You are my most intimate soul mate.  You alone really know me and I am made in your image. 

At my best I reflect you.  We are linked so that without you I have no purpose and the design of my being is useless.  I was made to be in your likeness.  Everything that prevents this distorts me as well as distorts you.  You are the Creator and I am the created.  You are the giver and I am the receiver.  You are the one who is seen through the window and I am the window. 

We are lovers with you always faithful, forgiving and committed and I am failing consistently yet seeking reconciliation in the middle of my struggles. 

Revive my love for  you.  Everything else depends on this alone.  Without love for you I will be in darkness and reflect nothing worth reflecting.  Allow my vision of gut faith be true.  Take from  me illusions about you so that I might see you as your are, worthy of love. 

Give me hope that it is not hopeless because of my weakness, lack of discipline, and foolishness.  Let me have hope in your wisdom, patience, and commitment to our relationship to pull us through. 

Lord, horrible things are happening.  Your people are like sheep that have gone astray, wandering in lifestyles of immorality and lies, self righteous, not confessing, not repenting, and condemning.  Bring us back to the way of life.  Restore us to lives of truth and humility.  

He who seeks to kill, steal, and destroy seems active on every side.  Allow the next mass shooter and murderer to be discovered before they can succeed.  Make those around them aware of the danger and may the by caught before they can act.  Convict them of the evil they plan and have them seek help before they do harm.  Give our leaders wisdom in what can be done to protect innocent lives. 

Awaken us to the dread horrible and deadly nature of abortion.  Grant to us a new love and hope for life.  Change our hearts concerning the value of the unborn and let us find together a better way to provide quality lives to people than taking their lives before they are born. Give us hope for the next generation. 

Take from Isis their competence.  May all their plans be foolish and self defeating.  Take from the their financial supporters and dry up their funds.  May their plans on the battlefield be self defeating.  Awaken them to the truth of your gospel and bring about Saul like conversions among their ranks.  Awaken those deceived into recruitment see the ugly nature of this life and understand that they have a greater destiny than becoming murderers.  Lord defeat this evil of our time.  Lord have mercy. 

Come now in revival or in the ultimate revelation of your glory.  The cost of our rebellion against your kingdom is beyond description.  Death, pain, loss, and grief stalk us and we have no hope but you.  Help us!  We do not deserve your help.  But in your grace Help us!  

Lord have mercy, Christ have mercy, Lord have mercy.  Amen

Hear our cry!

Dear good, great, and graceful Father in Christ Jesus our Lord, Savior, priest, prophet, and king.  Hear our cry and give us a cry from our hearts.  Make our prayers real.  Make our prayer passionate.  Stir up the fire in us.  Pour the oil of your Spirit upon us.  Give us fresh wind and fresh fire.  Awaken your Church in every nation and around the world.  Awaken me your chid.  We can do nothing without you.  So hear us and give us spiritual desperation, thirst, and hunger.

Lord let me see you more clearly

Father of all fathers, Authority of all authorities, Lover of all lovers, Eternal, All Knowing, All Good, All Great, All Grace, Maker of heaven and earth, and friend of Abraham.  Triune Wonder of FATHER, SON, and SPIRIT.  The ONE and Only TRUE GOD. 

I who am small and sinful come boldly before you because of your promise in your sacrifice upon the cross for my sins and resurrection from the dead.  By that great grace now pay attention to my heart and words, poor as they are, and show your kindness by listening to me. 

Help me to pray.  Help me to speak.  Help me to cry to you.  Help me to sense your presence around me.  Help me have spiritual reality in my experience.  Keep me from empty forms of religion and playing games of worship.  Help me be real with you.  

Lord I need to see you more clearly than I do.  Take away the lies that I believe about you in my heart.  The false idols that I have erected in my soul and placed your holy name upon them.  Let me know you as you truly are and not transform you into who I would want to make you after my image.  Let me desire to be changed into your image and not attempt in my mind to change you into my image.  Lord forgive me my idolatry.  Help me worship YOU as you are in Spirit and Truth.  

Lord I need to love you more dearly than I do.  Give me the energy to feel passion again.  Lift me out of my self pity and depression.  Let me let go of my weariness.  Help me love you with passion again and be inspired to new levels of devotion to you.  Give me a hunger and thirst for you and the experience of fellowship with you.  Give me a seeking heart.  Forgive me my apathy.  Deepen my commitment.  

Lord I need to follow you more nearly than I do.  Let me examine my habits and life style and see where they do not reflect how your would live in my circumstances and relationships.  Allow me to let go of those things not consistent with being your follower and add those things that are essential to living a life for your glory.  Help others see your competence, and character in me.  May I reflect your greatness, goodness, and grace before all who see me.  Transform me to be like you.

Lord allow all your people to see you more clearly, love you more dearly, and follow you more nearly.  Bring a true, mature, lasting, and real reformation, revival, and renewal to your Church.  Let us be effective in bringing truth and resisting evil in our generation.  Build your Church as you promised!

End abortion by awakening people to the need to care for women in crisis pregnancies making us ready to help them in any way needed so that they would see that giving birth to their children can be done in real hope of a good life for their children and for themselves. 

Also allow every women to see that the unborn child within her is an unborn child within her.   Let the illusion that this life is not significant or sacred disappear.  Let the conviction and belief that a human beings life begins in the womb and must be protected in the womb become such a deep value that the idea of abortion would become the unthinkable idea except in rare life threatening situations. 

Let this conversion of heat become nearly universal so that abortions end because they are rejected as an answer to the struggle of giving birth “East of Eden.”  Lord have mercy on us all.  

Bring gospel faith to the Middle East.  Let the true gospel be seen as the truth in all the nations there.  Overcome all teachings that oppose the gospel with love and respect.  Pour out your Spirit and Revelation upon those nations and bring a just peace to them.  

Lord come quickly!  We are i so much darkness.  Come in revival or in the final revelation of your kingdom but come to us now!  Help us in this desperate hour!  Help us!

Father forgive me!

Father of grace, goodness, and greatness.  Help me see you clearly that I might reflect your awesome character and competence before the watching world.  

Forgive me my lack of faith, hope, and love.  This is the core of my moral failure.  The wrong deeds I have done have reflected my lack of trust in you.  The things that I did not do that I should have done reflect my lack of trust in you.  Forgive me and increase in my reliance and confidence in you and your gospel.  Lord have mercy.  

Forgive me my lack of hunger and thirst for your kingdom and righteousness.  I have wanted pleasure and some poor substitute for success.  I have hungered and thirsted for my own pleasure instead of your pleasure.  I have been self centered and short sighted.  

Forgive me by the value of your blood sacrifice applied to these failings.  Cleanse me from the moral guilt of these transgressions against your heart.  Give me a heart in tune with your heart.  

Push back the darkness of our times.  The darkness of the killing of the unborn children, the darkness of ISIS, the darkness of racism, and the darkness of spiritual poverty based on false teaching in your church. 

Lord bring your light.  Weaken the darkness and allow us to be revived, renewed, restored, and reformed.  Lord move among us and save us from ourselves.  Help us not love darkness but desire your light.  Convict us deeply for our sins that we might love you more for providing us forgiveness.  Allow your grace to transform us from the inside out. 

Do all this for your glory, our good, and that we may be of some good in being your light during these dark times.  Lord hear us and help us.  Come quickly Lord Jesus.  Amen 

Tuesday, October 6, 2015

Lord, help us for we are so lost that without you we have no hope!

Good Father, help us now to find our way.  Help us maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. 

Help us see you as you are and to be careful of how we see you. 

Guide us to a mature faith that can agree to disagree on minor things. 

Help us see the difference between major and minor issues.  Lord make us wise. 

Grant to us maturity.  Keep us from being tossed about by every wind of doctrine and rumors.

Holy Spirit come and guide us into all truth and bring to us the power to live that truth consistently in our times.  

Bring down the strong holds of the false teaching of Islam and allow the true gospel to replace this lie about you with the truth.  Free the hundreds of millions that live under the tyranny of that false system.  Lord have mercy and bring revival to the churches in Islamic lands and grant them a strong loving boldness in proclaiming the truth.  

Lord help me to love your truth and be more deeply converted to your truth.  

Lord, revive, renew, reform, and restore your Church around the world, filling us with the Holy Spirit and making us effective in being the light and salt of the world. 

Give to the people of the world a love for the unborn and a hatred of unjustified abortions.  Change our thinking and our hearts on these matters.  

Give to me a change of heart and help me overcome the false ideas and attitudes that exist within me.  Lord have mercy on us all.  Amen

Father of mercy, center me in YOU.

Father of mercy and might, help me see your goodness, greatness, and grace this day in the Messiah Jesus.  Help me sense your presence all around me and in me according to the promises of the gospel.  Holy Spirit, fill me now.  Help me to experience the reality of your being with me and hearing me.   Center my soul in YOU. 

I need to love you more, follow you more consistently, think your thoughts after you, reflect your heart in my heart, and see everything from your perspective.  Forgive me my unbelief that blinds me, limits my love, creates inconsistencies, and poisons the thoughts of my heart.  

Lord, increase my faith, trust, and dependence upon you this day.  Into your hands I commit this day.  Send your comfort to my hurting heart.  Change my mind and take from me the heart of stone exchanging it for a sensitive heart of flesh. 

The Church, the governments of this world, the corporations, and every individual heart needs a fresh wind and fire to come upon us, a reformation of our thoughts, a seeking after truth, a compassion for the needy, and practical wisdom about how to do your will on the earth. 

Where there is blindness send sight, allow us to be quick to listen and slow to speak.  Save us from destructive anger that only promotes pride and self-righteousness.  Save us from self-centeredness and self-righteousness.  Humble us that we may be lifted up by your strength, grace, and truth.  Teach us your ways.  Use our light to push back our darkness. 

Lord of love and compassion, Come now to us. Help us believe the gospel of grace in Christ Jesus and live the gospel of mercy before a watching world this day.  Amen

Your kingdom come!

Heavenly Father of love, grace, goodness, and glory.  You are greater than my greatest thoughts of you.  Help me to have a better understanding of you that I might be in more awe of you and have greater love.  

Lord, today move to awaken people to the horror of abortion and the need of helping women in crisis pregnancies to be able to have the loving support they need to bring these children into the world.  Help us also be ready to help these children to have a life of sanity, stability, and spirituality.  Grant to us a vision of placing value on each life made in your image, striving to give each one the opportunity to reach their full potential before you.  Lord have mercy no upon us.  

Lord, teach us to disciple our children.  Help us know how to nurture the true faith in our families.  Allow the hearts of the children to be turned to trust in YOU and find their refuge in YOU.  Grant to our children greater faith than what we have.  

Lord, teach us to disciple the nations.  Help us to win the hearts of people who have strayed from from you to become faithful disciples to you.  Show us how to disciple others.  Show us how to be disciples.  Help us live consistently based on our faith that others might see our faith in lifestyles.  

Lord, renew, revive, reform, and restore all those who worship the Triune God.  Make your visible Church mature in faith, hope, and love.  Let us not be tossed by every wind of false doctrine but be committed to the true gospel.  Reveal your truth to the leaders of all the organizations that represent those who believe the Bible and have faith in you the Triune God so that they would understand, preach, and teach the gospel of salvation by grace alone, through faith alone, and by Christ Jesus alone.    Lord have mercy.  Raise up your Church to be one as you are One that the World might know that you have sent Messiah Jesus as Savior of your creation.  

Lord, comfort the family and friends of the victims of the mass shooting at the community college in Oregon today.  May all those who lost loved ones be given comfort.  Allow the body of Christ in that community be equipped to show effective compassion and support to the grieving.   Lord, have mercy upon us.  

Lord, end the reign of terror caused by ISIS.  Defeat their battle plans and drain their financial resources.  Help those forces that fight them to be successful and to act in honorable ways on the battlefield.  Grant our leaders wisdom on how we should respond as a nation to ISIS.  Provide a revelation to the members of ISIS that what they are doing is evil and have them seek salvation in the true gospel.  Awaken the entire Middle East to true faith in the gospel of Messiah Jesus.  Allow Jew and Moslem to be converted to trust in gospel of grace found in Messiah Jesus.  Tear down the strongholds of false teaching and provide TRUTH to replace lies.   Lord have mercy.  

Lord, within the circle of my own life increase my trust in you, your control of the future, and in you being worthy of my ultimate loyalty and love.  Lord renew, revive, reform, and restore me.   Forgive me my pride and selfishness.  Give me a more gracious spirit and attitude.   Help me be more like YOU, Lord Jesus that you may be glorified, that my life may be used for good, and for the good of all those that I have contact with.  Lord have mercy, help me not waste my life.  Amen 

Saturday, October 3, 2015

Father help us!

Father of love and commitment to save us.  Help me sense your love in the middle of my struggle and pain.  Let me be aware of your presence in the midst of my losing my peace.  Show me now the way when I feel so lost.  Father of perfection come now and encourage my heart in the midst of all these battles. 

Lord you have allowed a third of the planet to believe in your triune nature, that Messiah Jesus is God in the flesh, and in HIS resurrection from the dead.  Come to this visible expression of your essential truths and reform, revive, renew, and redirect us to see you more clearly, love you more dearly, and follow you more nearly, this day.  Lord we need fresh wind and fresh fire.  Give us true faith in your gospel of grace in Messiah Jesus.  Regenerate us and make us the true church in this generation.  Visit us with your glory. 

Lord, take from ISIS their power.  Defeat them on the battle field and take from them their financial resources.  End their reign of terror.  Bring the gospel to them in power and give them the gift of faith.  Convert them wildly to your gospel.  

Raise up leaders of true competence and character to lead us in the Church, business, and civil government.  Give us leaders we do not deserve who can lead us by doing the right thing first.  Lord have mercy and keep us from fools as leaders. 

Lord, help me believe more and forgive my unbelief.  Help me trust more and forgive my lack of trust.  Help me love more and forgive my lack of love.  Help me hope more and forgive my lack of hope.  Lord come and make of me what I ought to be.  Amen

Heavenly Father, help us today!

Heavenly Father, you are good, great and full of grace.  YOU are worthy of love, respect, and trust.  YOU are faithful, keeping your promises, always consistent, and infinity wise.  YOU are love.  May my life reflect your greatness that those that see me today will be in awe of your character and competence as reflected in me.  May your likeness shine through me.  May your gospel of grace and love be made incarnate in me today.  Make me a living gospel today.  Let me live as the body of Christ Jesus should live today on the earth.  Thank you for forgiveness and transformation.  Come Holy Spirit and change me from the inside out.  

Lord, look at all who make profession of faith in your as Triune God and have been baptized in the name of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and reform us to biblical content in our faith.  Lord, convert our minds that we might worship you in truth.  Help us not be tossed about by different winds of man made or devil inspired teachings but allow your saving gospel be rightly understood by all those who call upon the name of YOU the one Triune and True God.  

Lord, awaken all the spiritual leaders and teachers of this great host to become conformed in their thinking to your mind but also grant them in their experience a real encounter with you the Living and resurrected LORD of grace.  Give them a hunger and thirst for your word and prayer.  Speak to them personally and truly today and allow them to be your under shepherds to bring all your people to the knowledge of the truth and mature faith.  Allow them to equip your people so that they may effectively minister to a world in desperate need.  

Lord, reform, revive, and renew all the fallen pastors who have strayed from their calling into gross and destructive sins that have brought shame to your name.  Watch over their spouses and children and bring healing into these homes.  Allow your forgiveness and grace be felt and heal broken relationships.  Out of the dust of shame and sin, bring true repentance and new fruitfulness.  Let there be deep conviction and repentance and bring a ministry out of them that has grown because of these times of great struggle.  Lord have mercy on them and forgive them.  

Lord, defeat ISIS. As you defeated Nazi Germany so defeat this new manifestation of the spirit that desires to kill, steal, and destroy.  Steal from them their funds.  Grant their leadership confusion of mind and mistakes on the battle field. 

Provide new courage and strength to the soldiers that fight ISIS.  Allow those who fight them do so justly and not commit any crimes of revenge.  Allow those who fight ISIS not become like ISIS.  Do not allow the evil spirit that fills them contaminate those who battle them.  Quarantine this evil and truly exorcize it from the earth in this generation. 

Work a redemptive miracle and reveal yourself in the gospel to ISIS so that they will abandon Islam as a false religion and become disciples of the true Gospel of grace.  Lord fulfill your promises in Isaiah 19:19-25 and bring a great spiritual awakening to the Jews and Arabs in our generation.  Convert the Middle East to your gospel of grace in Messiah Jesus.  

Lord, awaken the conscience of America concerning abortion.  Allow many  women facing crisis pregnancies to see that they have options which will save their babies lives.  Allow the abortion clinics to go out of business because no women in America would consider having an abortion because they have recognized that it is a horribly wrong thing to do.  Help us face our massive national guilt and instead of deny it, confess it and seek repentance from it.  Heal the hearts and homes that have been impacted by this mass murder of tens of millions of babies thru deception and misconception.  Bring the love of life to us in great power.  Allow us to believe that we can be forgiven by your great grace of this great immorality.  Help us show compassion to every woman facing a crisis pregnancy and without condemnation provide her help, support, care, and practical solutions.  Grant that we may be able to heal the hearts of those who are suffering the physical and emotional effects of having an abortion and bring to them hope and healing.  Lord, have mercy on all of this complex and dark reality and awaken us to a new beginning free of this horrible transgression against life. 

Grant that the babies that are saved from abortion to be given the gift of faith in the gospel.  Save their lives so that their souls may be saved.  Grant special grace upon these children saved from the fires and provide them true faith and repentance before they die.  Lord, have mercy on these children and bless them with a special revelation of your gospel love.  

Lord forgive me for not praying more in greater passionate faith.  Forgive me for relying so much on my own methods and means that I forgot that without you I can do nothing that matters.  Help me see my utter dependance on you and weakness.  Save me from pride, self-reliance, and self-rightousness.  Help me see that without YOU I can do nothing.  Lord, not only forgive me but bring healing to all those that I hurt because of my sin.  All of my sins have hurt other people.  My forgiveness does not help the victims of my transgressions.  Please heal them and where I can make meaningful restitution show me how to do this and not cause more harm.  Lord help the victims of my sins to heal.  Lord, help me consider the harm of sin before I decide to sin again.  Help me hate sin because of the pain it produces in others.  Lord have mercy and cleanse me from my great guilt that I might now point towards your glorious grace.   For the sake of your sacrifice on the cross and resurrection from the dead forgive me.  

Lord of love teach me to have compassion.  Lord of grace allow me to show mercy.  Lord of truth let me live in integrity today.  LORD HELP!  Father have mercy, Messiah have mercy, Spirit have mercy.  

Thy kingdom come, they will be done on earth as it is in heaven.  

Come quickly Lord Jesus!  Amen

Lord reform us today!

Forever Father, you are light and truth, in you there is no darkness or lies.  You are always giving good gifts to creation.  You are good in character and great in competence in all you do.  

You are eternal and yet enter into the most intimate aspects of our day by day lives.  You are wholly separate from creation and yet fill all creation with your presence. 

Father you are greater than all the true words that have been spoken about you thru all times and are beyond our imaginations to conceive in your real and absolute glory. 

Thank you for letting us come to you.  Thank you for letting me come to you.  Help me now to pray.  Help me to communicate to you.  Help us to communicate to you.

Help me sense your presence.  Make us aware of your presence today.  Take away our blindness.  Take away our deafness.  Take from us our hearts of stone.  Take away my heart of stone.  

Help your people today to be filled with your Holy Spirit.  Filled me today with your Holy Spirit.  Come to us Lord Jesus.  Come to me Lord Jesus.  Breathe on us.  Revive us.  Revive me.  

Send reformation of doctrine to all who are water baptized and believe in your revelation found in the Bible about Messiah/Christ Jesus.  Let us have sound healthy true biblical doctrine and teaching.  

Allow us to teach and preach the gospel of Paul the Apostle and the other Apostles.  Allow the visible church's pastors, theologians, and authorities be reformed in their doctrine so that it reflects the truth of the scriptures accurately  

Lord let this reformation of mind and heart include Jorge Mario Bergoglio who is known as Pope Francis. Lord let Jorge Bergoglio be called by your Holy Spirit to reform his beliefs and teachings to be in conformity to your WORD.  

Complete the hope and prayer of the reformation that the Church would be restored to a true understanding of the gospel and freed from the traditions of human beings which have replaced your WORD.  

Lord save Protestantism who has also fallen into dark times and unhealthy teaching.  Lord, begin your work among us your people.  All we like sheep have gone astray, we have turned everyone to his own way.  Good shepherd come now and lead us out of the darkness and save us from the wolves that are in sheep clothing. Give your people a humbleness before your WORD.  Allow us to hear your voice Good Shepherd.  Lead us now into truth.  

Save us all from unhealthy and false ideas and teach us through your WORD healthy and true doctrine.  Lord reform us!

Let the truth set us free, humble us in our sins, open our hearts to true faith, through the Spirit produce in us true faith, confession, and repentance.  Make of us what you would want us to be effective in being the light and salt of the earth.  

Lord, you know my heart.  You know what needs to be corrected in my heart.  I bring my heart to you and ask you to break its hardness, unbelief, blindness, pride, and stubbornness.  Lord revive, renew, restore, and reform me.  Allow me to read your Word that I might be read by your WORD  and transformed more and more into your likeness.  Lord, come now.  We desperately need you.  Come now.  Amen
