Power and Strength In Christ
Give thanks to God who give you strength
2 Timothy 4:7-8 (ESV)
7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: 8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
Romans 8:37 (ESV)
37 In all these things we are triumphantly victorious due to the one who loved us.
Father God in the name of Jesus,
You are my Covenant Keeper, my Holy and Righteous Temple Cleanser. You are my Reconciler and Redeemer, my Father, Mother and Friend, my Life Preserver, my Lampstand, my Light and so much more. No matter how I try, no words in the human dictionary are accurate enough to describe all that You are to me. My comparisons are incomparable. My matches are matchless. My metaphors will always miss the mark. Still, You allow me to know You by name.
Thank You for allowing all things to work together for my good. Thank You for allowing all things to be held together in Your perfect hands.
Thank You for making me victorious, much more than conquerors and for making me an overcomer.
For all of the insights, wisdom and knowledge I have gained, I thank You.
For all of the places of healing, restoration, and deliverance You have established, I thank You.
For the ways in which You defeated the enemy during this time of prayer and fasting and have overturned my routines, my insecurities, my frustrations and at times, even my attitudes, I thank You.
For allowing me to trust the process, trust the purpose and even to trust the people around me, I thank You.
For the results I have achieved in my health, in my mind and even in my spirit, I thank You.
For all of the personal ways You have strengthened me, I thank You.
For allowing me to find encouragement even in those places where I fell short, I thank You. I made it!
Enable me to continue to live a life of discipline, that I may live healthy to serve longer.
In the name of Jesus, the one who not only began the work, but also completed it, I pray,
