Your way is the way of fullness and life. In Jesus name…Amen
Read the “Discipleship Prayer” below slowly, intentionally, pausing to think and reflect along the way as the Spirit leads. Notice which parts cause you to pause, which parts bring about questions, and which parts do not come out as easily as it seems they should. Over the next 30 days we will be breaking down this prayer, investigating, considering, and reflecting on each line. Today, spend as much time as you can familiarizing yourself with the prayer.
DAILY DISCIPLESHIP PRAYER
Heavenly Father—God Most High, Most Holy, Most Loving
Jesus—the Christ, Messiah, Immanuel—The Way, the Truth, and the Life.
Holy Spirit—Our Strength, our Comfort, our Helper and Guide.
Almighty, Triune God
Your name is holy and worthy to be praised above all others.
You are perfect in love and in all your plans and purposes.
We bow before you today with humble, thankful hearts.
Let your kingdom rule in my body, my relationships, and my world.
Let love and mercy be the starting point of everything I do.
Let justice and truth be always on my mind and on my lips.
Let your grace, your peace, and your blessing flow through me daily.
I desire to walk close to you today, Lord.
In all things give me what I need and no more
Love & wisdom;
Perseverance & courage;
Guidance and direction
Show me your ways, O Lord, teach me your path.
Forgive me when I turn my back on you or hurt the people around me;
When I am less than loving, less than peaceful, and less than truthful.
And give me strength to truly forgive those who do the same to me.
Teach me to follow you more and more
To trust in you more and more
To listen to and obey you more and more
Let my words be full of grace and seasoned with salt
Let my thoughts and actions be full of spiritual fruit:
Love, Joy, Peace, patience, Kindness, Faithfulness, gentleness, and Self-control
Keep me from things that knock me down and pull me away from you
And when these things come, give me strength to stand firm.
For your kingdom is a kingdom of power, hope, and forgiveness.
