Prayer written by Noël Pinnock
Father in Heaven, thank You for Your grace. Precious Lord and Savior, thank You for Your willing sacrifice for my sins. Holy Spirit, thank you for your transforming work in our lives. May our life on earth never be an affront to the grace given to us, the sacrifice made for us, and the Spirit who lives within us. Work in us the blessing that can be a blessing to those around us. When we have the power to change the trajectory of someone’s life by making a call, standing up, or being deliberate about given public support despite public opinion…may we not hesitate to render aid, word, or coin. You demonstrated how we should do this through Jesus Christ’s life, death, and resurrection. We will not ever be all we can be if we don’t pour into those that need us to help them be all they can be! But he was wounded for our transgressions, crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the punishment that made us whole, and by his bruises we are healed. We receive this gift of forgiveness and extend it to everyone, everywhere, everyday… no matter what. After all, we are extensions of Your love, grace, and mercy. Here us this day O Lord…we can and will never do anything apart from Your divine and perfect will and we decree upon Your command that everything that the enemy has stolen (joy, peace, wealth, image, etc.) will be returned unto us seven fold and the chains of the wicked whose hearts have turned away from the righteous will be broken…no matter who, what position he, she, or it holds, or dwelling place he, she, or it resides…all will be in the mighty grip of the Lord…in Jesus’ name, we pray with faith and with no exceptions, turning everything over to You…amen.
