A Prayer to Start Your Week
Lord, as I start this week, I acknowledge that You are God; You are powerful, good and gracious. There is no one like You, and I praise Your great name!
You are holy, and there is no other name under heaven by which I receive life and salvation except through Jesus. I depend on Your strength and declare that as I wait on You, my strength is being renewed; I will mount up with wings like an eagle, I will run and not be weary, I will walk and not faint.
I declare that You are my refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. I believe that Jesus broke the power of the curse of sin, death, and disease over my life when He died on the cross, and I thank Him for His sacrifice.
You’ve set before me life and death, blessing and cursing, so I choose life and blessings this week! I dedicate this week to You and trust that as I make plans, you are directing my steps.
I know that all Your plans for me are good, and I declare that no weapon formed against me will prosper. Thank You for going before me; because You will never leave or forsake me, I can be strong and courageous this week.
I declare that Your goodness and mercy surround me every moment; I am of good courage, and God strengthens my heart because I hope in Him. Your Kingdom is advancing in my life, and I choose to cooperate with the Holy Spirit as He develops love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control in my life.
This week, I decide to submit myself to God and resist the devil, and the devil will flee from me! I put aside everything that tries to weigh me down along with the sin that tries to entangle me; I will run with endurance the race that is set before me, looking to Jesus, the author and finisher of my faith.
Nothing will get me off track; I stand firm no matter what because I’m walking by faith, not by sight. Thank you, Lord, for transforming me and changing me from glory to glory.
I know that as I seek first Your Kingdom and Your righteousness, all the other things I need will be added to me including food, clothing, shelter, financial provision, healing, and hope. I know that no matter what happens, You are in control and You are faithful. I will be faithful to serve and love You.
I choose to forgive everyone who has wronged me, and I thank You, Lord, for forgiving me for the times I’ve failed You. I will diligently obey Your voice, Lord, and I’ll carefully observe all Your commandments, believing that Your blessings will come upon me and overtake me because I obey Your voice.
As I make You my refuge, I thank You that no evil will come near me and that Your angels are protecting me. “If God is for [me], who can be against [me]” (Romans 8:31)?
I will see victory after victory this week because You are for me and because nothing is impossible with God.
Thank you, Lord, for hearing me!
