Father, I want my prayers to make a difference. I want to come to that place where, when I pray, things happen. I want to be like Paul, and live out that which I study from Your Word. I don’t want to just play church and talk about it; I want to do it. I want to be like Paul and Silas, able to rejoice and praise You, Lord, even if I were to be as they were, thrown into prison, and when they could have been feeling hopeless, scared, and wondering why You allowed this to happen, still, instead, praising You. That is how I want to be. I know persecution is coming; and i want to be ready. Many of us will become like  Paul & Silas. I know these things are soon to come; and although many believers are in denial, I choose to face reality. This is what is coming; and I want to be ready.

Enlighten the eyes of my heart to see those places in my mind, will, and emotions that are hindering me from reaching that place of being “anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, making my requests known to You,” & letting all fear go, so “the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding can guard my heart and mind completely,” driving out all fear and doubt through Christ Jesus/Yeshua Ha-Mashiach. And I ask this for those who I know that are in Your Hand, Lord, and need to grow just as i do. I pray for my brothers and sisters in Christ/Yeshua that they also will yearn to do likewise. Put a hunger in their hearts.

And I yearn for that resurrection power to work in me/through me. Make me a conduit of Your power, Lord, so You can use me in whatever situation You may choose. I want to “be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work.” Grant me, therefore, spiritual wisdom and revelation in knowing You, so that I may understand more fully what it is that You have will be able to use in me  that will bring glory to You/Your Kingdom. I want to know what is the hope of Your calling, the richness of what You actually inherit by employing us in Your work.  I want this same power that was exercised in Messiah when You raised Him from the dead to be released in/through me.

I want to be like Paul. I want to finish the race You set before me. I will choose to say, as Paul did, that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

In Jesus/Yeshua’s Holy Name. Amen.
