Breakthrough 2023 Prayer Guide
Each morning you will find a new Prayer Guide that will help facilitate a time of prayer and meditation. We encourage you to reflect, be still, and listen as you pray and read through the guides. Each guide is structured around the acronym P.R.A.Y. For more information check out this post.
May the next 14 days be marked by transformation and depth of intimacy with the Lord.
As we enter into a time of prayer and meditation, take a moment to quiet your soul. The Psalmist invites us to be still and know that He is God. Be still. Take a deep breath. Clear your mind and ask the Lord to protect your thoughts.
Pray the following prayer:
Jehovah Tsidkenu, Lord of our Righteousness, I might not have much but what I do have is a heart that beats for You. Stir up a hunger in my soul to sit in Your presence, and to taste and see that You are indeed good. Come, Holy Spirit.
Jehovah Tsidkenu is a name for God which means “The Lord our Righteousness.” It appears in Jeremiah and describes what happens to God’s people as a result of the work of Jesus.
“In those days and at that time I will cause to grow up to David a Branch of righteousness; He shall execute judgment and righteousness in the earth. In those days Judah shall be saved, and Jerusalem will dwell safely. And this is the name by which she will be called: “The Lord our Righteousness.”
Despite our own sin and unrighteousness, the work of Jesus Christ on the cross has made us righteous before God.
The work of Christ on the cross has made us righteous in status before God, but we are still learning how to walk in this righteousness.
“He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?”
Because of the righteousness of Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit we are able to do the good works that God has called us to do. To do justice, to be kind, and to walk in humility.
Take some time to sit in His presence and to let Him minister to you. God promises to give us what we need to do the works He has prepared for us.
Pray the following prayer:
Father, I know that I am often selfish, prideful, and incapable of doing any good works on my own. I yield myself over to You, trusting that by the blood of Christ You have clothed me in righteousness and equipped me with the Holy Spirit to do good works.
End your time by praying the following prayer:
May the peace of the Lord Christ go with me: wherever He may send me.
May He guide me through the wilderness: protect me through the storm.
May He bring me home rejoicing at the wonders He has shown.
