My Monday Prayer: A Prayer of Freedom

My Monday Prayer: A Prayer of Freedom
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow

The Lord who made you and helps you says: Do not be afraid, O Jacob, My servant, O dear Israel, My chosen one. For I will pour out water to quench your thirst and to irrigate your parched fields. And I will pour out My Spirit on your descendants, and my blessing on your children. They will thrive like watered grass, like willows on a riverbank.
Isaiah 44:2-4 NLT


My Father, what a wonderful God You are. My children (and I) are handmade by You. You are our designer. You are our helper and keeper. I ask that we will never doubt, question, or wonder who we are, where we came from, or where we are going.


May we live free of fear—safe from its bondage, kept from its paralyzing grip, protected from everything that would terrify and hinder us from experiencing all that You have for us. May our hearts be full of expectancy and assurance, knowing that You have set us free.


Pour out upon each of us Your abundant mercies, Your abundant grace, Your abundant goodness, Your abundant blessings, Your abundant love. May we always drink from Your fountain of joy; wash in the river of Your mercies; be touched by Your refreshing rains. Quench our thirsty souls, water the garden of our hearts, keep our spirits in Your healing streams. Cause us to thrive, flourish, and prosper in life and in our relationship with You.
