Take time today to pray these crucial prayers for yourself. God will bless a sincere heart.
Today, take time to pray for yourself. In my relentless pursuit of God’s knowledge and kingdom revelation, I came across a book by Creflo Dollar titled, Lord, Teach Me How to Love. At the end of the book, he wrote a chapter of prayers and confessions.
I would like to share some of these prayers with you and invite you to pray them for yourself today and every day. Therefore:
To Walk in Love
“Father, please forgive me for not loving as I should. Your Word says that I am made in your image; therefore, it is my desire to love as You do. Right now I tap into the anointing to change, which is made available to me through Your love. I pray that the atmosphere of my life, my home, my church and my place of work will change as a result of Your love demonstrated through me. In the name of Jesus, I decide right now to accept my responsibility in this walk of love. Lord, I receive your power, Your anointing and all that comes as a result of my obedience to walk in love. I will even demonstrate love to my enemies. Change me, rearrange me and make me new again. I thank You, God, that I will not miss the very best that you have for me. I believe that I receive right now the faith to walk in love. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
To Walk in the Prosperity Ignited by Love
“Lord, I pray for an increase of anointing, love and compassion. I know that promotion comes from you (Psa. 75:6-7), and I know that You are a rewarder of those who diligently seek You. Because of Your favor, Lord, I expect miraculous increase in every area of my life. I am 1,000 times better from this moment on. In the name of Jesus I am rooted and grounded in the love of God. I decide today that I live and walk in love. My faith will increase. My anointing will increase. My power will increase. In the name of Jesus, Amen.”
Commitment to Spend Time with God
“Father, in the name of Jesus, I make a quality decision to develop and diligently cultivate an individual love relationship with You. I will not allow my good works alone to communicate my love to You. I will seek the needful thing, which is the word of God. I will not only be a hearer of the Word, but also a doer because I love You. I commit to spending more time with You, so that I may know Your voice and do what You instruct me to do.”
“For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man viewing his natural face in a mirror. He views himself, and goes his way, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. But whoever looks into the perfect law of liberty, and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this man will be blessed in his deeds.” (James 1:23-25)
“And without faith it is impossible to please God, for he who comes to God must believe that He exists and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” (Heb. 11:6)
