Daily Prayer & Devotion


February 22, 2020

Dear Father God,

I worship You today and I lift up my praise to You.

Thank You for covering me with Your love and grace.

Please open my eyes that I may see and always be mindful of what I may be holding back from You.

I know that there are parts of my life that I do not let You into and areas in which I do not want to give up control.

Please transform me and renew my mind so that I can know You and Your will...

And do not be conformed to this world,

but be transformed by the renewing of your mind,

that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

Romans 12:2

Lord, I now surrender all to You.

I want You to be the center of my life and I do not want to shut You out of the places where I am ashamed or afraid.

Holy Spirit, please wash over me and help me to break free and to experience total freedom in You.

Thank You, my gracious God.

In the name of Jesus my Savior I pray,



Reflecting on the Names and Nature of God

The Holy Spirit: 

The Spirit of the Lord God

The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me,

because the LORD has anointed Me

to preach good tidings to the poor;

He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,

to proclaim liberty to the captives,

and the opening of the prison

to those who are bound.

Isaiah 61:1

The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of the Lord God who anointed Jesus to preach the gospel. Therefore, He can anoint you to effectively share the good news of salvation. Just as the Holy Spirit sent Jesus to do miracles of mercy, so He can send you to show mercy to needy people. Just as the Holy Spirit helped Jesus proclaim liberty to captives, so He can use you to give the message of spiritual liberty to all. You can open the prison of sin to those who are in bondage to Satan. Just as the Holy Spirit anointed Jesus for ministry, He can also anoint you for ministry.

Holy Spirit, I believe in You. What You have done in ministry through Jesus, do the same for me. I want to be used by You.

The Spirit of the Lord God led Jesus while He was upon Earth (Luke 4:1-14). They had perfect harmony because Jesus was one with the Father and the Holy Spirit. When you yield completely to the Holy Spirit, He can lead you every step of each day. He can help you accomplish much more with your life. The world has yet to see what can be accomplished through any person who is completely surrendered to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Holy Spirit, I yield my life to You. Help me see areas of my life that are not yielded, so I can yield them to You. I want to be completely filled with Your presence.   Amen.
