Lord’s Prayer – Matthew 6:9-14

Our Father in heaven…
God you alone are perfect. I give you my need to be perfect and the demand of perfection on others, in exchange for your perfection. Cleanse me of all anger and clothe me with your peace–the peace that passes all understanding.

Hallowed be your name…
God, you alone are set apart as holy. I give you my need to be needed, in exchange for your wisdom. Lord remove all pride from me and crown me with your humility. Thank you, God, for wanting me and not needing me.

Your kingdom come…
I surrender my heart, mind, and will in submission to your kingdom of love, justice, and beauty. I give you my need to succeed, in exchange for your enduring rule of love. Cut off my search for power with all its greed, lust, and gluttony. Set me apart to carry the love of God in your name.

Your will be done… (On earth as it is in heaven)
God you have chosen me since the foundation of the world. I give you my need to be special, in exchange for unity with you. Replace all the marks of envy in me and adorn me with your eternal promise to love and cherish. What do you want to do today? I’m with you; thanks for being committed to me.

Give us this day our daily bread…
Humanity does not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. Jesus, you are the word that became flesh and dwelt among us. Jesus, you are the bread of life. Jesus, your body was broken for us. I silence every deceiving spirit in exchange for what is true. Write your truth on my heart today, that I may be filled and comforted by your provision.

Forgive us our trespasses as we also forgive those who have trespassed against us…
“Search me God and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” God, I ask you to take all fear from me. Fear of failure, rejection, death…(others that apply to you) I exchange my fear for the faith of the Lord Jesus Christ. Clothe me with the faith that can move mountains and that can grow from a seed into a mighty tree.
(Confess your sins here- choose to forgive others)
Thank you, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, for forgiving me, and give me back what others have stolen. Jesus, I hear you say, “Get up and walk for your faith has made you well.”

Lead us not into temptation…
Father I confess that it is easy to disbelieve, disobey, and feel disowned by you. I give you my orphan spirit in exchange for the spirit of adoption, whereby I cry out Abba father. Father, would you give me the belief of Jesus Christ, the obedience of Jesus Christ, and the inheritance of Jesus Christ.

Deliver us from the evil one…
I renounce the devil and all his works. I declare all demonic assignments against me, my household, and my church null and void by the authority of Jesus Christ. I announce the blessing of Christ and his empty tomb over me, my household, and my church today.

For thine is the kingdom of Christ – By the power of the Holy Spirit – To the Glory of God.

(make any other requests know to God)

In Jesus’ name. Amen.
