My Prayer

I to come into your gates Lord with thanksgiving and into your courts with praise. I want to say thank you first of all for giving me vision, because without vision I would be perishing.

I thank you for giving me the power to create wealth because again I would not have the strength to perform if it was not for your favor upon me. I want to say thank you for giving me wisdom to know what to do and when to do it. You are all mighty God. Apart from you I can do nothing.

I praise you because you are worthy to be praised and I want everything that I put my hands to, to give you praise and glory. I praise you from the rising of the sun to the setting of the sun, let everything that is in me that has breath: my marriage, my family, my church, my businesses praise you Lord.

I declare that apart from you I can do nothing. I declare that your arm is not to short to deliver me or is your ear hard of hearing. I declare that I and my family, co-workers, colleges, will know Jesus Christ and Him crucified. Where your resurrection power is at work in us, so that, the world will be jealous of what we have and want it too.

I bless my family, our neighbors, our co-workers, and colleges, with a thirst and hunger for righteousness and a love for God and for their fellow neighbor.

I bless us with more love, and power, and servanthood. Because you Lord were the best example of not coming to be served but to serve.

I bless our tongues to have the law of kindness on our tongue, so that you can be glorified in our speech. May we forever be reminded that blessing is more powerful than hate.

I bless our handiworks so that we can create wealth to establish God’s good works in the earth and meet our fellow mans needs. I bless us with wisdom from above and beyond our years, so that, we will not walk according to our own foolishness and understanding.

I thank you Lord for hearing this prayer. In Jesus Name.
