Day 1: Prayers to strengthen our inner man

Today, our prayer theme is for Strength in our Inner man based on the following scripture:

 “I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ,” Ephesians 3:16-18 NIV

This is for the work of the Spirit in our hearts to be manifested.

  • Father, release the spirit of the fear of God into my heart. Strike my heart with greater understanding of Your majesty that I may live in awe before You. Unite my heart to Your heart and Word, and cause me to delight in the fear of God.
    1. I will put My fear in their hearts so that they will not depart from Me. (Jer. 32:40)
    2. Unite my heart to fear Your name. (Ps. 86:11)
  • Father, strengthen my heart with endurance, that I may faithfully do Your will with zeal and diligence and never draw back in any way in my pursuit of the deeper things of Your heart and will. Give me endurance to fast regularly. Direct my heart into the patience, or endurance, in which Jesus walked (2 Thess. 3:5). Give me strength to follow through in my commitments to You and to fulfill my ministry calling even when it is difficult or small.
    1. Being strengthened with all power…so that you may have great endurance and patience. (Col. 1:11, NIV)
  • Father, pour out Your love in my heart by the Spirit that I may overflow in love back to You and to others (Rom. 5:5). Impart Your own love for Jesus into my heart (Jn. 17:26).
    Allow me to comprehend Jesus’s love for me (Jn. 15:9; 3:18). Let me see myself through Your eyes so that I may love who You created me to be (Ps. 139:13-15).

    1. The love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit. (Rom. 5:5)
    2. May the Lord make you increase and abound in love to one another. (1 Thes. 3:12)
  • Father, I commit to live as a “person of one thing.” Help me to sit regularly at Your feet to behold Your beauty as David and Mary of Bethany did. Strengthen my desire in this, and help me to maintain a lifestyle of regular time with You in Your Word. When I lose this focus, get my attention and send Your Word to deliver me of a divided heart.
    1. One thing I have desired…all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord…
      (Ps. 27:4)
    2. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part. (Lk. 10:42)
  • Father, strengthen my heart so that I walk in a measure of faith and obedience that is worthy of who You are and of Your calling on my life. Help me to walk worthy of You by escaping all compromise. Prepare me to walk in the highest things You have called me to. Help me to live free of the snare of compromise so that I will walk blamelessly so to stand before You victoriously with the testimony that I sought to obey You with all my heart.
    1. We pray always for you that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfill all the good pleasure of His goodness and the work of faith with power. (2 Thes. 1:11)
    2. Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things…to stand before the Son of Man.” Luke 21:36
  • Father, set a guard over my lips and help me to speak words that are pleasing to You. Free me from defensive, angry, foolish, sensual, or impure speech. Keep me from quenching the Spirit with my words. I set my heart not to sin with my speech.
    1. Set a guard, O Lord, over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips. (Ps. 141:3)
    2. Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight. (Ps. 19:14)
    3. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body. (Jas 3:2)
  • Jesus, teach me how to walk in Your yoke of humility (lowliness of heart). I set my heart to learn humility from You, gaining insight that will result in the transformation of my attitudes, speech, and actions. Give me wisdom about how to carry my heart in humility.
    1. Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. 4Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. 5Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ… (Phil. 2:3-5)
  • Father, give me insight into Your Word, will, and ways. Give me wisdom about how to walk in intimacy with You in every area of my life, including my finances, schedule, emotions, physical body (diet, health), relationships (home, office, ministry), future, fears, etc. What are You thinking and feeling about me and my life, city, nation, and generation?
    1. …to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will [insight] in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God…. (Col. 1:9-10)
    2. But the Helper, the Holy Spirit…He will teach you all things… (Jn. 14:26)
  • Father, strengthen my heart with supernatural peace in areas in which I feel rejection, fear, or anxiety; strengthen my mind so I may overcome turmoil, confusion, and indecision.
    1. Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing… (Rom. 15:13)
    2. The peace of God…will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. (Phil. 4:7)
  • Pray for Yemisi Vese to be strengthened with might in her inner man as she carries out the work of the Lord and for all the ministers at the Throne Room Encounter meeting
