Prayer for Taking the Ground of the Day

paradise header

Abba,

I give my entire day to You, binding all that I am to all that You are–heart, body, mind and spirit–for Your perfect will to be done today in my life.

I loose from myself all accumulated baggage from the past–old resentments, negative reactions and memories, defense mechanisms and attitudes that have become strongholds in my life. Whatever is loosed in Heaven I choose to loose on earth.

Taking a spiritual shower as I take a natural one (Hebrew 10:22), I ask You to make the water holy (John 5:7) and to bless the water for cleansing and healing.

I ask that You would baptize me anew in the fire and light of Your Holy Spirit inside and out (Matthew 3:11).

As I dress for the day, I put on the garment of praise (think of at least 3 things you can honestly praise God for, and genuinely thank Him from your heart).

Over this, I also put on the Armor of God (Ephesians 6):

The Helmet of (Your) Salvation
The Breastplate of (Your) Righteousness
The Belt of (Your) Truth
The Shoes of (Your) Peace
The Sword of the Spirit
The Shield of Faith

And I ask You, Holy Spirit, to bring it up to Your standards of battle worthiness.

I bring myself into complete alignment with You, Lord. I command my body, mind, emotions, will and spirit to come under the authority of the Holy Spirit, that I may be a delight to You, Heavenly Father.

I determine that I will be on the lookout for loveliness all around me this day and talk to You often about Your creation, in praise and worship.

I choose life in its fullest dimension.

Glory in it!

Amen

(Though I have moved the order around a bit and changed a few words, I did not write this prayer, nor do I know who did. It is another of the prayers given to us by our sweet angel Hrachik, whom we met during our miracle at the birth certificate office. For the full story, click here.)

    Reblogged this on The Prayer Jar and commented:

    I just DANCED this prayer this morning as a way to wake up, integrate, and align my body (that sensuality thing again), mind and spirit, and it was POWERFUL! I just opened the page and then expanded it to make the print huge enough that I could see it while standing a few feet away (with room to move), and then I interpretive-danced it, shaking off all the accumulated baggage from the past, etc. SO FUN. wanted to share it with you so you could give it a try.

    If anyone has a SONG that you recommend setting this to (instrumental, of course), please post it in the comments or shoot me an email—-we could actually create a YouTube video with the music and the words together–that would be powerful!
