A prayer for strength

Lord God, indeed you are very great. Your name is Jehovah the I AM GOD, your name is ELOHIM; the One who creates from nothing, the one who can speak to the darkness and create light. The One who can speak to the grave and it must obey and release dead dreams, dead visions and dead hope. The One who does exceedingly and abundantly above all that I can ever think or imagine. Today I am grateful to you for the education that you have blessed me with. I know sometimes I moan about this and that but Father through the pressure has revealed to me so much about myself and so much about you as well. Father, thank you for this year, for showing me the difference between toiling and manifesting. Thank you for teaching me how to do what I should do and giving me favour in the presence of my instructors. Thank you for the privilege of being where I am at this time and I thank you that I shall come to the end of this phase with success all glory coming to your name. Thank you Father, I am expectant.

Today O Lord, I come to ask for strength. As 2008 draws to an end and I stand at the threshold of a new year and a new season in you I am aware of the work that lies ahead and Lord I'm a tad bit overwhelmed. I remember the words of David, he said that when his heart was overwhelmed he would go to the rock that was higher than him. I wonder if he wrote that when he thought about facing Goliath or maybe before going into one of the many battles that he fought. Like Him, I have come to the rock that is higher than I. O Lord, your strength is immeasurable, who can fathom it. Your word says that you are the one who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect. Let this be my testimony in 2009 in Jesus name. You enable me to stand on the heights, you train my hands for battle and your right hand sustains me. Your word also says that you will keep me strong to the end so that I will be blameless on the day of my Lord Jesus Christ.

Father, enable me to work in and with your strength. in 2009, I know that there will be obstacles, there will be challenges, there will be battles, there will be mountains to climb and rivers to cross. I look at myself and know that of my own I can do nothing. With you I can do all things. Let your strength keep and guide me to the end. Thank you for supernatural strength to do the impossible, to advance against troops and scale over walls. I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. I praise and glorify you O Lord.

Strengthen me in my inner man to do the right thing even when it is difficult, that I choose the higher way and not the road frequently travelled. Strengthen me so that I can remember to encourage myself in the Lord when adverse situations come my way and when what is staring me in the face is the direct opposite of the vision that I have from you. Give me strength to walk away and separate myself from habits that do not take me forward. 2009 has to be the greatest year of my life. A year of achievement and fulfilling the call of God in my life but Lord I need your strength. Even in serving you; Peter said that if we serve we should do it with the strength that you provide. Strengthen me O Lord. Your word says that if I faint in the day of adversity, my strength is small. If I have grown tired running with foot soldiers, what would I do when I face the chariots? Your word has promised that when I wait upon you, you will increase my strength. After waiting, I can run without being tired and walk without growing faint. Strengthen me O Lord in Jesus name.

2008 continues to be a year of UNCOMMON TESTIMONIES and 2009 a year of ACHIEVEMENT and FULFILLING DESTINY. Thank you Jesus.

He will keep you strong to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ 1st Corinthians 1:8

I thank God for you Believer, because you know the WORD of God. It is so amazing because God obeys His own words, no word can ever return back to him void.

Whenever you pray His word, it must happen. So I thank God in advance for the answers to your prayers. I also thank God for the way your prayers have reminded me each day about God's word. Lord, when my soul is overwhelmed, lead me also to the rock which is higher than I.

In 2009, I pray that God will be my rock and my solid foundation...and my strength when I am weak.

Today father, I thank you for Believer. Girl the clarity and direction of your prayers are awesome. Yes, I agree with Jaycee, you know and stand firm on the solid word of God, and rightly so too. I pray that God gives you strength to run with chariots and not be weary, the wisdom to rise like an eagle and sour over all troubles, trials and tribulations and the grace to reign in his glory in 2009.

Lord I pray that as this year has been my year of planting, working, sowing, refining and testimonies, that my 2009 will be the year of walking physically and spiritually into and onto the platform of my destiny. Father Lord, I pray and declare that all will see the wonderful work you have started and continue to do in, with and through me, all for your glory. Father Lord, I pray for the strength, wisdom, grace and honor to run, rise and reign with you in 2009, making you even more famous as I do so... all to the glory of your name. I have expanded - busted the gates of my heart so you can pass through, I have increased the depth of the storage within my heart so you can fill it with untold treasures and riches, I have aligned my priorities to make room for you in my daily living, all presented to you my wonderful father on a bed of boundless expectations to work your wonder in my life, to use me for your glory, to in turn be a blessing this and the next generation to come... in Jesus name I pray.

Believer... you will rise, run and reign in 2009 - for the seeds of words you sow on this blog, will be rewarded hundred fold! Amen!
