I ask You, Father, by Your Holy Spirit, to convict each one of those areas where they each are holding back from You, thus failing to surrender, failing to hear from You. Convict each one, as needed, also, of the head/heart issue which is a major hindrance.

I pray that You would put a holy hunger in the hearts of each one, that they would so hunger to know You more, that they would so desire to have more of You, that spending time with You, that focussing on You/Your Word/Yeshua, cultivating that intimacy  with You would be a joy and not a burden. Put a hunger, a thirst, and passion in each one’s heart for You, Lord Jesus/Yeshua/Holy Father/Holy Spirit, that they will burn with desire for You, and be more than willing to crucify flesh that gets in the way, for Lord, I know that when one truly desires You, You are more than happy to manifest Yourself to that individual (John 14:21).  

Make it such a heart’s desire that it overpowers all fleshly weaknesses and carnal desires. Make the heart desire stronger than the head/intellect/thought life, so that each one wills, as Jesus/Yeshua to do only those things that please You, (John 8:29), only those things You show each one to do (John 5:19).

Put it into the hearts of each one that “A love relationship with God is more important than any other single factor in your life” (Blackaby, p.83); and that the commandment to “love the Lord your God with all your heart,” (Deut. 6:5; Mk.12:30) means exactly that. Imprint it on each one’s heart so it cannot get lost.

Make each one become as Jesus/Yeshua, Who “was obedient unto death, even the death of the cross” (Phil.2:8), and cried out to the Father, “not my will, but Thine be done” (Lk. 22:42, KJV). In Jesus/Yeshua’s Name I pray. Amen.
