A Family Prayer

Lord, You are Light, You are Love, You are Life
Fill me with pure breath, pure knowledge and delight
Watch over my family, keep them safe in Your arms
Please Oh! dear Lord, let us not come to harm

May Your sweet Word enter deep within souls
Cleanse us, teach us, supply all our needs
Bring us to a realization of our state
And shelter us deep within, before it’s too late

Shelter us in the shadow of Your cross
Where we can find life, where You suffered loss
Pour out Your mercy and grace, show us how
To ask for forgiveness, for sins past, future, now

Cover our home, our lives and our thoughts
Our speech, our minds and all that falls short
Of the glory of God, Lord of lords, King of kings
May wondrous in-awe praises, our mouths always sing

Lord, how we need you, Your compassion and full joy
Need You to flow through us, Your Salvation to enjoy
Teach us the fear of God ever-more
That we might not fear man, circumstances or any closed door

Oh! precious Saviour, may Your Spirit direct us
May Your presence, Your freedom, always surround us
Help us to remember to number our days
And may the light of Your Word bring us in step with Your ways

HOLY SPIRIT (A Prayer or Song Lyrics)


When You breathe in me
Thoughts once evil are banished
When You breathe in me
Unpure thoughts, they all but vanish

When You act in me
Actions tell of Your love
When You act in me
All actions are powered from above

When You draw my heart
I’m drawn away from me
When You draw my heart
God’s love is all I see

When You strengthen me
Holy Spirit, I am empowered
When You strengthen me
The enemy is devoured

When You, in love, guard me
In love, I am protected
When You, in love, guard me
Hope flourishes and is resurrected

I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
I am covered.
I am the apple of His eye.
I am on the side of the Victor.
I am the head and not the tail.
I am worthy.
I am forgiven.
I am healed by the stripes of Jesus.
I am not consumed.
I am restored.
I am redeemed.
I am seated at the right hand of God in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.
I am found.
I am no longer blind.
I am a child of God.
I am a son/daughter of the living God.
I am not to fear.
I am not to be afraid.
I am to love God.
I am to love myself.
I am to love others.

And I am all of these things and more because the great I AM (The Lord God Almighty) says so.

Thank you heavenly Father for your precious promises and all consuming love.

Thank you Lord Jesus for Your sacrifice that bought me life.

Thank you Holy Spirit for Your comfort, leading and conviction.
