Prayer for Your Desires

Father, thank you for being the kind of God that we can come to when not everything is perfect, well, let's be honest when everything is a complete mess. We can come to you begging, screaming, and pouring out our soul!  

Today, let us follow the example of Hannah in the Bible who said, "I was pouring out my soul to the Lord." (1 Samuel 15b). She had the guts to take her pity party and whining to the feet of the One that could actually do something about it. She desperately desired, a son and through her tears begged God. God, let us be brave enough to POUR OUT OUR SOUL like Hannah and ask for the one thing that we desire more than anything else...

She prayed, "Oh Lord, Almighty if you will only look upon your servant's misery and remember me and not forget your servant, but give her a ______, then I will give him (it) to the Lord for all the days of his life.  1 Samuel 1:11

Pouring out our soul to You... In Jesus' name, Amen

Prayer to Let Go of the Past

Father, release us!  We no longer want to be paralyzed by our past mistakes, we want to be able to get up and move forward. Help us.  

Remind us that the same message that Jesus gave to the paralyzed man, applies to us; "Son, your sins are forgiven and put away, that is, the penalty is remitted, the sense of guilt removed, and you are made upright and in right standing with God...I say to you, ARISE, pick up and carry your sleeping pad or mat, and be going on home." -Mark 2:5, 11. (AMP)

Father, help us to put away our past, get rid of the guilt that is holding us pack, and ARISE to the life that You have called us to. -In Jesus' name, Amen.
