Come Holy Spirit, Come
Heavenly Father, we have gathered here in this place in the name of Jesus. We want to give You thanks, glory, honor, and praise. We have come to seek Your face and to worship You in Spirit and in Truth. Thank You that we can approach Your throne of grace with boldness in our time of need; and right now, we need You.
Father, You promised us a comforter, teacher, and helper as believers who have been bought with a price by the blood of Jesus. We plead the blood of Jesus over our prayers right now. We have come to this place asking that You will cleanse and purify us by the power of Your Word and Holy Spirit.
We have come for You to put the search light on all of our hearts to show us how we have fallen short of Your perfect will for our lives. Search us oh God, and know our hearts, try us and know our thoughts and see if there is any wicked way in us and lead us into the way everlasting. (Psalms139) We have come to humble ourselves under Your mighty hand. We have come to seek Your face. We have come to be healed, delivered, transformed, and set free. We have come for our miracle!
We confess that we and our ancestors have sinned against You. We did not keep Your covenant of holiness, love, righteousness, and peace. We have inflicted pain and abuse on one another. We have turned a deaf ear to the cries of the poor, orphans, and widows. We have shown prejudice, racism, sexism, deception, oppressiveness, pride, arrogance, and selfishness in our dealings with one another. We have been sinful in mind, body, and spirit. We have not treated our bodies as the temple of Your Holy Spirit; but Father, search us right now, purify us right now, and fill us with Your precious Holy Spirit.
Father, the land we live in is sick and diseased and we do not have any power of our own to heal and change it. Start with Your church, Your called out assembly. Let judgement begin with us because we have failed to seek You and to walk in unity. We opened the door for the enemy to work and wreak havoc in Your house of prayer. We have been at war with one another. There is violence in our families, in our churches, in our communities, and in the institutions of the land. There are race riots, divisions, and brutalities. Injustices are being inflicted upon the disadvantaged and the marginalized. Our children are suffering in the streets.
Immorality is at an all-time high and has blinded us to our inhumanity toward one another. Cleanse us; let the world see that we really are Your people by our love for You and for our neighbors of all nations. Help us to reach people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Let us go preaching that Your Kingdom has come.
Right now we decree and declare that nothing will hinder us from this prayer hour. We bind the demonic spirits of uncleanness, fear, disruption, pride, envy, jealousy, selfishness, hatred, misunderstanding, violence, anger, and rage.
We loose purity, faith, unity, cooperation, understanding, and love. We decree and declare that we are covered during this prayer time in the full armor according to Ephesians 6:10-18. Bring on a fresh move of the Holy Spirit in our church, on the people, the pastor, and the leaders in Jesus name ~ Amen!
