Let the Glory of the Lord Arise- Prayer

Hello community,

I am a firm believer in a God that is greater than I could ever be. I share prayers on this blog because I believe that it is crucial for you and I to bring God in the mist of our parenting techniques. Why, because we don’t know all of the answers, and surprisingly letting our hands go at times brings the greatest clarity and even comfort. So, as you read the following prayer, let go of the stress and allow God to intervene and fill in the gaps of what’s missing in your day, your energy, and even your parenting ability.

Heavenly Father,

I ask that You let the Glory of the Lord rise upon me, according to Isaiah 60 verse 2. I ask You Lord to let Your Glory be seen on me throughout this day and to always show the mind of You Lord today and every day.

Heavenly Father I ask that when anyone looks upon me this day, they will see you Lord in and around me. Let every action that I do today proclaim you Lord in every way. In Jesus name we pray.

Amen

Letting Go of Resentment & Bitterness Prayer

Heavenly Father,

I come to You now in the Name of my Lord and Savior Christ Jesus. Heavenly Father, life seems so unjust, so unfair. The pain of rejection is almost more than I can bear. My past relationships have ended in strife, anger, rejection, resentment, and bitterness.

Father, help me to let go of all bitterness and resentment. You are the One Who binds up and heals the brokenhearted. I receive Your anointing that breaks and destroys every yoke of bondage.

I receive emotional healing by faith according to Your Word, Isaiah 53:5, “and with His stripes we are healed”. I thank You for giving me the grace to stand firm until this process is complete.

I acknowledge and I thank You for my wise Counselor, the Holy Spirit! Thank You for helping me work out my salvation with fear and trembling, for it is You, Father, Who works in me to do Your will and to act according to Your good purpose. In the Name of Jesus, I choose to forgive those who have wronged me.

I choose to live a life of forgiveness because You have forgiven me. With the help of the Holy Spirit, I get rid of` all resentments, bitterness, rage, anger, brawling, and slander, along with every form of malice. I desire to be kind and passionate to others, forgiving them, just as through Christ, You forgave me. With the help of the Holy Spirit, I make every effort to live in peace with all men and to be holy, for I know that without holiness, no one will see You.

I chose to receive and to not miss Your grace and that no roots of resentment or bitterness grow up within me to cause trouble. I will watch and pray that I will not enter into temptation or cause others to stumble.

Thank You, Heavenly Father, that You watch over Your Word to perform it and that whom the Son has set free is free indeed. I declare that I have overcome resentment and bitterness by the Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the word of my testimony.

Amen

Thank you Prayer Book for this incredible prayer!
