Doing More Because Of You

Heavenly Father I praise You for today. I praise You for sending Jesus to earth to bring salvation and hope. I praise You for sending the Holy Spirit to walk with us daily after Christ left this earth on his ascension to heaven in front of His disciples. I praise You for the wisdom, direction, and discernment that the Holy Spirit provides to me each day.  

Holy Spirit Christ told us: “Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be given to you.” “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to my Father. And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.” [Matthew 6:33; John 14:12-14] 

Holy Spirit I continue to seek righteousness and to offer myself as a living sacrifice to serve You fully each day. In this I come to You and ask that You heal Gwen who has stage 4 colorectal cancer, Josh who has testicular, lymph node, and lung cancer, Kayla who has cancer and other severe body issues fighting against her, Angel who is fighting cancer, Cindy who has liver cancer, Esther’s heart condition, Reverend Philip who has an open sore and is diabetic, Janet who is still fighting the pain from shingles, Neoma who continues to heal from a broken hip, my friend Dawn who deals with MS daily, my friend Louise who has defeated cancer and still is fighting to be fully healthy, my friend Jeff who is almost healed from hip surgery but will need surgery on his other hip and fights schizophrenia every day and Karen who is having heart troubles not long after having heart surgery where two splints were put in. I come knowing You can heal anyone, I also seek that Your will not mine be done today. I come as the woman Christ told about that continued to seek the judge to hear and do something about her complaint. I will continue to bring these before You seeking healing for You said that I would do even more things and that all things come from seeking through prayer with humility and fervency.  

Holy Spirit I seek to have wisdom, understanding, and discernment so that I can serve You better. I seek to have You help and inspire me to be a better husband, father, and grandfather while I live and breathe. Let me take in Your Spirit and breathe it out onto others every minute, hour, day, week, and year that I continue to walk this earth. Help me to ingrain Your word on my heart and in my mind so that I will carry Your wisdom, knowledge, and desires within me and make them my own. In all that I do, say, and think may I honor You for the salvation, hope, faith, and love that is within me. Amen.
