True Disciple Prayers

 

 

Prayer For Receiving God’s Treasure and The Fear of The Lord

 Father, thank you for your Word which declares to me that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge.  I recognize that you are holy, righteous, almighty, pure, all-knowing, all-powerful and all-wise.  You are worthy of my reverence and honor.  

 I acknowledge my weaknesses, my sinfulness, my frailty, and my need for you.   Please forgive me, Lord, in the areas where I have not honored you, your Word, your house and people in authority you have placed over me.  I renounce a rebellious spirit or anything that keeps me from submitting to you in Jesus’ name.  God, I recognize that your placement of authority is for my protection and well-being, and this day I submit to you and ask for your help in respecting those who you have placed over me:  my parents, leaders, authorities and employers. 

 I acknowledge, as Solomon did, that the meaning of my life is found in fearing you and obeying your Word.  I praise you for the power of the Holy Spirit, which enables me to properly fear you and respect those you have placed over me.  In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.

 Prayer For Receiving Revelation, Knowledge and Wisdom

Gracious Heavenly Father, I praise you for fearfully and wonderfully making me.  You are awesome and you desire that truth be made known in my inner parts.  You teach me wisdom in the inner most place of my life.  Forgive me where I have leaned on my own understanding and not lived in your wisdom. 

 Your Word encourages me to ask in faith and believe that I will receive your wisdom. Lord, I pray that you will fill me with your wisdom that comes from above.  Your wisdom is pure, peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy, good fruit, impartial and sincere.  I acknowledge my complete dependence upon the Holy Spirit to accomplish this work within me.  In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.

 Prayer to Become a Fisher of Men

Father.  You have called and chosen me for such a time as this.  I am in awe that this earthen vessel, this jar of clay, can be molded by you.  You, Lord, are the potter, and I am the clay.

 For this season in my life, Lord, I ask that you would discipline me.  It may be painful at this time, but I believe that as I submit, discipline will produce a harvest of righteousness and peace. 

 Father, I come against any distraction that would take my focus from my pursuit of your will.  I abandon everything of this world and submit myself to Christ completely and totally.  Father, I want to be a history maker by demonstrating your love and grace.  Fulfill your eternal purpose in me by equipping me to be a fisher of men so that I may lead many to righteousness through your power working in my life.  In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.

Prayer To Become A True Disciple

Father, I come boldly into your presence through the blood of Jesus Christ.  I ask your forgiveness for I have claimed that Jesus lives in me, but I have not always walked as Jesus did.  So often, I have followed my own desires, agenda and will.  If I have been selective in my obedience, I ask for your forgiveness, Lord. 

 Jesus, you have said, “No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God.”  You expect from your disciples complete dedication and commitment.  I submit my will to your will and I accept the cross along with the crown and judgment as well as mercy.  I decree this day, Lord Jesus, with you as my focus, I will allow nothing to distract me from living the way you have called me to live.  In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.

Prayer For Being Available To God and Others

Gracious Lord, open my eyes that I may see the purposes of your kingdom.  The world is full of hurting people who are in desperate need of your reconciliation.  Your Word says that you came to proclaim freedom for the prisoner and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.  Help me to be your ambassador of reconciliation that I might be a ministering vessel bringing healing to their lives.  I thank you for shedding your blood that makes this possible, and because I have freely received,  I choose to freely give. 

Lord, I recognize that in order to effectively participate in your kingdom, I must die and surrender my will to yours so that you may live and work through me unhindered.  I die to my will and the lust of the flesh and put on the new self.  Let me be clothed with your righteousness and strip away all selfishness.  Lord, I pray that my election and calling will be secure in your hands so that what you have purposed for me will be accomplished.  In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.

 

Prayer That Declares My Acceptance In Christ

Gracious Lord, I praise you for your truth, the truth that is found in your Word.  Thank you, Lord, that you have opened my spiritual eyes to the lies and schemes of the evil one who would have me bound to rejection and the fear of man.  Thank you for the truth that says perfect love casts out fear.

 Lord, plant within me your truth.  Let your truth take root and be established in your unfailing love and that I may have your power to understand the width, length, height, and depth of your great love.  As your child, I choose your acceptance and love in my life today.  In Christ’s name I pray, Amen.

 

Prayer to shut the Devil’s Doors and giving your house to God

Lord Jesus, I want to be a true disciple. I choose to submit to you, resist the enemy, and make you Lord over every room of my house. Help me to always resist the lies of the Devil, and to always embrace your truth. It is your truth that sets me free and keeps me free. Help me to never ignore your truths you have revealed to me and to never wander from your perfect understanding. Today, I call Heaven and Earth as witnesses and declare that I choose life and not death; I choose prosperity and not destruction; I choose blessings and not curses. In Jesus name, Amen.
