Being Equipped for Success
Book – Prayers that Avail Much
Father, I thank You that the entrance of Your words gives light. I thank, You that Your Word, which You speak (and which I speak), is alive and full of power – making it active, operative, energizing, and effective. I thank You, Father, that (You have given me a spirit) of power and of love and of a calm and well-balanced mind and discipline and self-control. I have Your power and ability and sufficiency, for You have qualified me (making me to be fit and worthy and sufficient) as a minister and dispenser of a new covenant (of salvation through Christ.)
In the name of Jesus, I walk out of the realm of failure into the arena of success, giving thanks to You, Father, for You have qualified and made me fit to share the portion that is the inheritance of the saints (God’s holy people) in the light.
Father, You have delivered and drawn me to Yourself out of the control and the dominion of darkness (failure, doubt, and fear) have transferred me into the Kingdom of the Son of Your love, in Whom there is good success (and freedom from fears, agitating passions, and moral conflicts). I rejoice in Jesus Who has come that I might have life and have it more abundantly.
Today I am a new creation, for I am (engrafted) in Christ, the Messiah. The old (previous moral and spiritual condition) has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come! I forget those things that are behind me and reach forth unto those things that are before me. I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ lives in me: And the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith of the Son of God, Who loved me and gave Himself for me.
Today I attend to the Word of God. I consent and submit to Your sayings, Father. Your words shall not depart from my sight; I will keep them in the midst of my heart. For they are life (success) to me, healing and health to all my flesh. I keep my heart with all vigilance, and, above all, that I guard; for out of it flow the springs of life.
Today I will not let mercy and kindness and truth forsake me. I bind them about my neck; I write them upon the tablet of my heart. So therefore I will find favor, good understanding and high esteem in the sight (or judgment) of God and man.
Today my delight and desire are in the law of the Lord, and on His law I habitually meditate (ponder and study) by day and by night. Therefore, I am like a tree firmly planted (and tended) by the streams of water, ready to bring forth my fruit in my season; my leaf also shall not fade or wither, and everything I do shall prosper (and come to maturity).
Now thanks be to God, Who always causes me to triumph in Christ
In His name I pray, amen.
