Praying Isaiah’s Prophecy

Heavenly Father, never let me forget the Prophecy of Isaiah that describes Jesus. Help me to remember: And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? For He grew up before Him as a tender plant and as a root out of dry ground. He has no form or majesty that we should look upon him nor appearance that we should desire him. He was despised and rejected of men, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And we hid, as it were, our faces from him; he was despised, and we did not esteem him. Surely he has borne our grief and carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon him, and by his stripes, we are healed. All of us like sheep have gone astray; each of us has turned to his own way, but the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all. [Isaiah 53: 1-7]

Holy Spirit though I am not worthy because of my sins, Christ has forgiven me and paid the price for my sins on the cross. He has given me the free gift of salvation and I have the hope that lies within me that one day I will go to heaven and be resurrected with a new body. I am now an adopted child of God and I live to serve Him daily. I, with the help of the Holy Spirit, die out to my desires daily becoming a living sacrifice for Christ. I work to renew my mind daily by reading scripture, communing with You through prayer and focusing on what is good and pure.

Holy Spirit help me to stand and face each day with the knowledge that You are with me. Help me to begin to understand that nothing is impossible for You. Help me to make Christ’s words found in John to become true in my life. “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. [John 14:12-14] Let me be what You need me to be. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
