Father, in the Name of Jesus, as I approach Your Written Word today, I'm asking You for the Ephesians 1:16-23, Ephesians 3:14-20, and Colossians 1:9-11 Spirit of wisdom, revelation, strengthening, might, joyfulness, and fear of the Lord so that I'd walk worthily of the Lord in all of His purposes, in all of His grace, by all of His faith, hope, and love, and that when they've seen me, they've seen Christ Jesus from this day forward.
I pray for my Church and my family to know You as well as I'm getting to know You, and where any of them know You better than I do, I'm asking You to quickly bring me up to speed as I give myself to Your Word and to them in accordance with Your will. Protect and shield my time from unworthy influences, deception, and deceivers. Where I'm called upon by the Head of the Church, Christ Jesus, to share Your Word, give me utterance and teach me while You're teaching others through me, yet let all things be done decently and in order since You're not the author of confusion or temptation. Give me clarity of speech and purpose and remove unworthy influences from my life, even if it meant this job that I have.
If You have another job for me, then maneuver me to the place where You want me to go, and I trust You that I'm an owner of property, that I have influence, and that I have more than enough money whether or not I've got a job, in the Name of Jesus. Because I'm where You want me to be, doing those things You want me to do, and my first responsibilities aren't to the Church or the family, but are to You, Lord Jesus. You're my financier and You know where You need me, and it's my purpose through my time in Your Written Word to make myself the most valuable person You've got when it comes to understanding, having a renewed mind and transformed life that's yielded to Your Written Word in all things.
Cleanse my Church and my family of all iniquity. I plead the Blood of Jesus and the Covenant that it ratifies on my study time in Your Written Word, my sharing of Your precious Written Word, my Church, my family, my calling, and my job. I thank You for enabling me to do all things well, to do all things according to Your will and according to Your riches in glory by Christ Jesus. I thank You that I'm receiving Your mind through my time in Your Written Word, and that I cannot be defeated and I will not quit.
You've given me, my Church, my family, my neighbors, and any coworkers that I may have all things that pertain to life and godliness through Your grace and peace that we have through Your Written Word. I thank You that I'm increasing in the knowledge of God to the glory and praise of God and that I have the fellowship of Your Holy Spirit always. You always show me what I'm dealing with when it comes to my calling, when it comes to any jobs You may need to temporarily assign me to, and when it comes to my Church, my family, and my neighbors. I thank You for the place You've given me in being a good steward of their hearts, of their children, of their fortunes, of their futures, and I praise You for Your faithfulness in raising me up as I spend my time in Your Written Word and do with my whole heart those things that I believe You've been instructing me to do.
Where I still have blindness, I pray Your Holy Spirit quickens eyes that see and ears that hear in me. I cast down every fear, every imagination, and everything that would set itself against the knowledge of God, against me, against my Church, against my family, and against my neighbors. I rejoice that Your angels are active in my protection, the protection of my Church, the protection of my family, and the protection of my neighbors as I stand on Your Word with all of my heart. I trust You and know that You're leading me always, and I thank God that I hear Your Voice in Your Written Word absolutely always and I'm a walking revival everywhere that I go, in the Name of Jesus and every nation prostrates itself as I open my mouth with Your Word! Amen!!
