We all go through periods in our life when we need a cleanse, a detox, a start over for our body. Spring is usually when we do this with our bodies getting ready for that bathing suit we aren’t ready to wear at the pool yet. But what about the inside? What about our soul? Making time for cleansing our mind and renewing our soul needs to be another major thing on our to do list.
Think about it. If you thought about your soul the same way you do sporting that bathing suit at the pool, you may take more time to nourish it, care for it, and want it to look good. Prayer is the exercise that helps us cleanse and care for our soul. A daily practice that shouldn’t be done one season a year. Prayer has power and it has the intense ability to guide us in our focus. So…anyone up for taking a 10-day prayer challenge to see what it feels like to start the morning off with a BOLD prayer of humility before God asking him to cleanse and renew us?
I have written one out to make this as simple as possible, and with each day my prayer is that you proclaim this prayer BOLDER than the day before, and with more affirmation with each day you say it along with me.
This daily Prayer I have written out is coming to God in humility and asking to be cleansed in heart, mind, and body so that each and every day we can breathe more of the world out of us and more of God’s Spirit within our souls. You may need this for your soul today as well. Just try it with me, take the 10-day prayer challenge and let me know you are doing it with me!
You are Lord of all the earth and yet you know my name. You are great, you are grand, you are glorious, and yet you sit by my side and care for my heart. I am thankful for you God. Not just for what you have done or what I know you will do, I praise you for being the God that you are, and the God I never want to stop drawing closer to. Bring me in closer today as I renew my heart to form it more like yours.
Infect me. May I feel your Spirit dwell in my veins. Become a part of my being. Help all that I am morph into all that you are.
Cleanse me Lord from the world that has snared me. Release me from this poison mixed in with my blood from this earthly flesh. Help me to feel the blood of Jesus cleansing the parts of my soul that are broken.
Renew me. Refresh my heart, restart my mind, and recharge my body that it be fueled with the fire of your spirit. Take reign in this place, take reign over the crevices of dirt and dust hidden in the corners of my inner being. Heal me Lord, in the way only you can.
Make me new. Make me like you. You bring life Lord, live in me!
Deliver me, every part of me. I belong to you. Rid me of all things that don’t belong here in your child. Break the bonds of forces connected to me that are not connected to you. Release me from the spirits that have no home here in your vessel.
You are my home. The authority of Jesus on the Cross and overcoming the face of death and the grave is my victory, my hope, and my proclamation today. Let the truth of who you are, and the alive presence that you have within me consume me today so that nothing can thwart what you are doing in and through me.
I am yours Lord, and I am unworthy. Consume me to be used by you, to be intimate with your love so that I don’t chase it anywhere else. I invite you into my heart, into my mind, and part of my body Lord.
You are my King. Let me feel the authority and title of what it means to be your child. To be known by you, protected by you, cared for by you, loved by you and the Daughter of a King.
Remind me of who you are, I praise you for who you are. Help me to live today remembering that who you are is developing me to be who I am transforming to be. Let your light shine through me for the world to see more of you and less of me.
I believe in your power Lord, and I believe you are alive in me. Restore me Lord that I may reflect the image that you have created within me.
