"The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the suffering and afflicted. He has sent me to comfort the broken-hearted, to announce liberty to captives and to open the eyes of the blind. He sent me to tell those who mourn that the time of God favor to them has come, and the day of his wrath to their enemies. To all who mourn in Israel he will give: Beauty for ashes; Joy instead of mourning; Praise for heaviness; that they may be called the trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.” Isaiah 61:1-3
Father, when you were on earth, you prayed. You prayed in the mornings, you prayed at night, you prayed alone, you prayed with people. In your hour of distress, you retreated into times of prayer. In your hour of joy, you lifted your heart and hands to the Father in prayer. Help us to be more like you in this way, help us to make prayer a priority in our daily lives that we may give you what you require of us.
1. A Distinctive Cry
2. A Unordinary Praise
3. Outta Bound Worship.
Only we can do this for ourselves Lord God, no one else can do it for us. Lord God you ask for a cry from my belly where the Holy Spirit makes intercession for me. You ask for a Radical Praise in the privacy of our home just between you and me. You ask for outta bound worship to where you have full reign within my mind, body and soul for my spirit belongs to you already. I surrender all, not my will but your will be done, O Lord, my Redeemer and my God.
In Jesus’ Name. Amen!!!
I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for He has clothed me with the garment of salvation, He has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments, and a bride adorns herself with her jewels. As a garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth, so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations. Isaiah 61:10, 11
