Spiritual Growth Word Prayers

There is nothing more powerful than the Word of God.  It is God’s perfect will for mankind.  The Bible tells us that if we pray anything according to God’s will He will do it for us.  When we pray God’s Word back to Him in faith, He is going to perform it for you!  The prayers in this section are found in the Apostle Paul’s letters and are so powerful for declaring to the entire spiritual realm who you are in Christ!

These prayers will bring God’s full attention and power into your life because the Bible says He watches over His word to perform it.  Yea, He hastens to perform His Word!  Harness the power of God’s Word and declare your created value to God.  You will find that you WILL become what the scriptures declare about you.

Ephesians 1 Prayer ~ This is a prayer of thanksgiving and praise for His mercy and grace towards us.  It also declares over your life His will.  Speaking the Word of God over your life empowers you to become His Word.  You will see your life begin to change as you speak God’s Word over it.

Father, I thank You for extending Your grace, Your unmerited favor and Your spiritual peace to me.  I thank You that I have peace with You and am in perfect harmony and unity with You!  

Father, may blessings and praises be to You, my God and Father of my Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed me in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realm!  Even as, in Your great love, has chosen me as Your very own in Christ before the foundation of the world!  I am always on Your mind Father.  I thank You that I am holy, consecrated and set apart for You.  I am blameless in Your sight in Your great love.  I am even above reproach in Your sight!

I believe O Lord, that You foreordained me, You destined me and planned in love for me to be adopted and revealed as Your own child through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of Your will.  You have done this marvelous work simply because it pleased You and it was Your kind intent.  You are so good to me!  Thank You, Father.  You have done this so that I might be to the praise and the commendation of Your glorious grace, favor, and mercy, which You so freely bestowed on me in the Beloved.

In You Lord, I have redemption, deliverance, and salvation through Your precious blood, the remission, and forgiveness of all my offenses, shortcomings and trespasses, according to the riches and generosity of Your gracious favor, which You have lavished upon me in every kind of wisdom and understanding.  Thank You, Father, for making known to me the mystery, the secret of Your will.  The plan of Your purpose for me.  And it is this: in accordance with Your good pleasure, Your merciful intention, which You had previously purposed and set forth Him.

Father, I know that You planned for the maturity of the times and the climax of the ages to unify all things, and head them up and consummate them in Christ, both things in heaven and things on the earth.  You have made me Your heritage and given me a portion and I have obtained my inheritance in You.  For I know that I have been foreordained, chosen and appointed beforehand according to Your purpose.  You always work out everything in agreement with the counsel and design of Your own will.  So that I am destined and appointed to live for the praise of Your glory!  Hallelujah!

I thank You Father for my salvation in Jesus Christ and thank You for stamping me with the seal of the Holy Spirit!  I am Yours forever!  I gladly yield my life and will to You today!  Mold me and fill me with Your Spirit today that I may bring glory to Your great Name!

Thank You, Holy Spirit for being the guarantee of my inheritance, the firstfruits, the pledge, the foretaste, the down payment on my heritage!  I am anticipating the full redemption and looking forward to acquiring complete possession of it to the praise of my Father’s glory!  

Father, today grant me a spirit of wisdom and revelation, of insight into mysteries and secrets, in the deep and intimate knowledge of You.  Today Father, flood my heart with Your light, so that I can know and understand the hope to which You have called me, and how rich is Your glorious inheritance in the saints, Your set apart ones.  I am so grateful to be numbered among Your set apart ones O Father.

Lord, I want to know and understand what is the immeasurable and unlimited and surpassing greatness of Your power in and for us who believe, as demonstrated in the working of Your mighty strength, which You exerted in Christ when You raised Him from the dead and seated Him at Your own right hand in the heavenly places.  

Lord Jesus, You are seated far above all rule and authority and power and dominion and every name that is named above every title that can be conferred, not only in this age and in this world but also in the age and the world which are to come!  All things have been put under Your feet Lord Jesus and Father has appointed You the universal and supreme Head of the church, which is our body, the fullness of You, who fills all in all, who makes everything complete and who fills everything everywhere with Yourself.  I declare all these things in the mighty Name of Jesus.  Amen and Amen.

Colossians 1 Prayer ~ This is another great prayer for spiritual growth to come forth in your life.  God’s Word cannot fail.  It will come to pass because He says that He “watches over His Word to perform it.”  Speaking God’s Word about who you are to Him, will ensure that you actually become His word.

Father, today let me be filled with the full, deep and clear knowledge of Your will in all spiritual wisdom.  Grant me comprehensive insight into Your ways and purposes today.  Let understanding and discernment of spiritual things be imparted to me today.  I ask in Jesus’ name.

Father, help me to live and conduct myself in a manner worthy of You Lord, fully pleasing to You and I desire to please You in all things.  I want to bear much fruit in every good word and deed I do.  Help me to grow steadily and ever-increasing in and by the knowledge of You.  Let me be invigorated and strengthened with all power according to the might of Your glory.  Help me to exercise every kind of endurance and patience, perseverance, and forbearance with joy, giving thanks to You Father, who has qualified and made me fit to share the portion which is the inheritance of the saints in Your light.

Thank You, Father, for delivering me and drawing me to You out of the control and dominion of darkness and for transferring me into the kingdom of the Son of Your love, in whom I have my redemption through His blood, which is the forgiveness of my sins.  Hallelujah!

Although at one time Father, I was estranged and alienated from You and I had a hostile attitude of mind in my wicked activities, yet now has Jesus Christ reconciled in the body of His flesh through death, in order to present me holy and faultless and irreproachable in Your presence Father.  

I understand Lord that You will do this provided that I continue to stay with and in the faith (in Christ), well-grounded and settled and steadfast, not shifting or moving away from the hope, the Gospel, which I have heard and taken to my heart.  My heart is fixed on You Lord Jesus!  I declare all these things in the name of Jesus!  Amen and Amen.

Psalm 91 Prayer ~ Psalm 91 is a very familiar psalm about God’s protective care and the key to the intimate relationship that I talk about so often.  It is a psalm rich in His promises as well as a testimony to His faithfulness to you.  When you speak the Word back to God like this, sooner or later it is going to become part of your belief system.  And this is the place of the immovable position, where no matter how bad it looks, your faith is unshakeable!

“Father, I praise You and thank You for giving me the glorious opportunity to come and dwell in the Secret Place of the Most High!  I know and am confident that I shall remain stable and fixed under Your shadow, Almighty God.  Who can withstand Your power?  No one.

Father, I declare today that You are my Refuge and my Fortress, my God on Whom I lean and rely and in You I confidently trust!  Because I do I know that You will deliver me from the snare of the fowler and from all deadly pestilence.  I praise You my Father for covering me with Your pinions and under Your wings, I trust now and forevermore.  You are my Refuge!  Your truth and Your faithfulness are a shield and a buckler to me every day of my life.  I love You, Lord!

Father, because of Your great love for me, I am not afraid of the terror of the night, nor of the arrow which is the evil plots and slanders of the wicked, that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor of the destruction and sudden death that surprise and lay waste at noonday.  I know Lord that even though a thousand may fall at my side, and ten thousand at my right hand, it shall not come near me!  Because of our intimate relationship, I am only a spectator, I am inaccessible as I dwell in the secret place of the Most High.  I am only a witness of the reward of the wicked.

O, my Father, I make You my refuge, you are my FIRST CHOICE always!  You are my dwelling place, I know and am fully confident that no evil shall befall me, nor any plague or calamity come near my house.  For I know You have given Your angels charge over me and thy accompany me and defend and preserve me in all of my ways.  They will even bear me up in their hands to avoid dashing my foot against a stone!  Such is Your great love for me.  I am totally devoted to You Father and choose this day to obey You and serve You!  Today and throughout all eternity I want to love You and know You more and more and more.

Father, Your great care, and love give me the authority and ability and power to tread upon the lion and the adder; the young lion and the serpent shall I trample under my feet.  I know that because I have set my love upon You, therefore will You deliver me; You will set me on high because I know and understand Your great name.  I have a personal and intimate knowledge of Your mercy, love, and kindness towards me.  I trust and rely on You Father, and I know and am fully persuaded that You will never forsake me, no not ever!

I shall call upon You Lord and I know that You will answer me; You will be with me in trouble, You will deliver me and honor me and with long life, You will satisfy me and show me Your great salvation!”

I Corinthians 13 ~ The Love Chapter.  This chapter is inspiring yet so hard to achieve sometimes!  Life is full of difficult people.  Nevertheless, we must all strive to become love with skin on.  Love is what God is and we must always try to become like Him.  We must become love.  Love is in the heart and that is what God looks at.  The Bible says “the love of God has been shed abroad in our hearts” when we were born again through Jesus Christ.  But love is also a fruit of the Spirit that we must cultivate every day.  By praying I Corinthians 13 back to God, it is inevitable that you will become more aware of God’s love and loving others the way God does!

“Father, I realize that even if I can speak in tongues of men and of angels, but have not Your love at the center of my heart, I am only a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.  Your love is reasoning, intentional, and is spiritual devotion for me.  I love as You love…unconditionally.  

Father, I realize that if I have prophetic powers, and understand all the secret truths and mysteries and possess all knowledge, and if I have sufficient faith so that I can remove mountains, but have not Your love in me, I am nothing…a useless nobody.  And even if I dole out all that I have to the poor in provisions and if I surrender my body to be burned, but have not Your love in me, I gain nothing.  

Therefore today Father and every day I’m alive I choose to endure long because You do.  I choose to be patient and kind because You are.  I refuse to be envious nor boil over with jealousy because that is not Your nature.  I am not boastful or vainglorious and I refuse to display myself haughtily, because You are humble and a Servant.  I am not conceited, arrogant and inflated with pride because You are not.  I am not rude or unmannerly and I do not act unbecomingly because that is not Your nature.  

Father, Your love in me does not insist on its own rights or its own way for it is not self-seeking, it is not touchy or fretful or resentful.  Your love in me takes no account of the evil done to me and I pay no attention to a suffered wrong because You are longsuffering and kind.  I do not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but like You, I rejoice when right and truth prevail.

Father, I bear up under anything and everything that comes and I am ever ready to believe the best of every person I come into contact with.  My hopes are fadeless under all circumstances and I am able to endure everything without weakening.  Your love in me never fails, it never fades out or becomes obsolete in my life.  Your love in me won’t ever come to an end because You are eternal and You are LOVE.

Father, I realize that prophecy, it will all be fulfilled and pass away; and as for tongues, they will be destroyed and cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away; it will lose its value and be superseded by Your Truth.  For I know Lord that my knowledge is fragmentary, incomplete and imperfect now, and prophecies are also incomplete, but when the complete and perfect comes, the incomplete and imperfect things will vanish away and become antiquated, void and superseded.

Lord, I realize that when I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child; now that I have become grown up in You, I am done with childish ways and have put them aside.  I know that for now, I am looking in a mirror that gives only a dim, blurry reflection of Your truth, but praise You Lord when perfection comes, I shall see in reality and see You face to face!

Now I know in part, but then I shall know and understand fully and clearly, even in the same manner as I have been fully and clearly known and understood by You Father.  I realize Lord that faith, hope and love abide–these three; but the greatest of these is love.  Your love abiding in me.  Your love in me Father, brings glory to You and that is my goal for today..to bring You glory!  In Jesus’ name I pray.  Amen and Amen!
