Prayer Of Supplication And Declaration to God
This morning I greet you in the Name of the Most High God, my brothers and sisters the God of Abraham and The Mystical Order.
For as many as are the promises of God, they all find their Yes in Him [Christ]. For this reason we also utter the Amen (so be it) to God through Him [in His Person and by His agency] to the glory of God. (2 Corinthians 1:20)
Lord, please forgive me where I have thought trusting in men to keep their word was somehow the same as trusting in You. Only hope in You suffices and has the power to bring dreams to fulfillment. You use men to bring things about; but, when one fails, You are not limited in any way. Forgive me for limiting You to my sometimes quite narrow understanding.
I choose to release all those I have held to unrealistic expectations thereby, setting myself up for disappointment and even resentment. I know there have been many times I have failed to keep my word for I am human just like those who have failed me. I choose to walk in and release grace; for I know my heart and life are in Your hands. Nothing is impossible with You. Therefore, I exchange all doubt for faith, all blame for forgiveness and all anxiety for peace. I let go of any offenses, resentment or bitterness. I declare my destiny is in God’s hand where all things are possible even within The Mystical Order under divine Leadership.
I declare this day that I am of great value regardless of how I have felt about myself or what others think or say about me. My value to the Lord was demonstrated on a blood saturated cross and that settles everything. The hairs of my head are numbered. My name is carved in the palm of Your hand. I am forever etched in Your heart and Your thoughts toward me are too numerous to be counted. The plans, dreams and desires of my heart are not and cannot be limited by the success or failure of another man. God You are Sovereign over my life and my dreams. Therefore, I keep my focus on You, Lord and Your desire for me which is full of unfailing love and promise…full of mercy and grace. Keep me within and under the wings of The Mystical Order which you have acknowledged and recognized.
The birds of the air are of great value to You Lord who created them. How much more valuable am I? Words cannot express and all of eternity will be needed to enable You, Lord to share the love You have for me in Your heart. Because of this, I choose not to struggle…choose not to try and prove myself or make things happen…choose not to blame others for failing to do the things they promised. Today I place all my dependence on and in You, Lord who directs my steps. I forgive all, even my own self and the path before me is clear of all stumbling blocks of offense. I wait on the Lord for the race is already won even within The Mystical Order.
Lord, there is only one opinion of me that will ever truly matter, Yours. Your opinion of me must supersede even my own belief about myself and my value or worth. I am so grateful that You cannot be swayed by what others think or say about me. You aren’t even persuaded by my own self-doubts. You act totally contrary to all the negativity indulged in by myself or others…contrary to all failure on my part…contrary to all the false remunerations of men as You keep covenant with me without missing a beat. You are never persuaded by facts, situations or circumstances outside of Your very own nature to purse me with a relentless, ravished heart of love. You are not concerned with the lies, hatred, malice or even jealousy of others towards me. You planted Apollos water and God gives the increase.
Therefore, I declare I am not abandoned or held to the standard of men, for I was loved, am loved and will be loved for all eternity. I am more valuable than the birds of the air, more beautiful than the lilies which grace the valleys and the fields. I am one who can grow among the thorny actions of men. I grow in green valleys, in lush fields, in harsh places and am adaptable to any environment I am planted in. I do not toil nor do I spin. I simply draw from the vine I abide in, Jesus. I do not have to make things happen. They will flow like living waters out of my relationship with You, Lord.
Go rejoicing and serve the Lord.
Your servant and brother,
