Cleanse the House: Model Prayer
Jul 21, 2015
The following model prayer is designed to bring all prayer partners into unity of focus and purpose. You may add to it as led by the Spirit. The only iron-clad rule is to be led by the Spirit. Please pray this prayer today and tomorrow as a minimum. If you are led to continue praying this daily for the full 76 days leading to the Tabernacles conference, you are welcome to do so.
Our Heavenly Father, we come before you in the name of Jesus and under His blood, by which we have received forgiveness and cleansing from all sin.
We put on the whole armor of God: the helmet of salvation, the breastplate of righteousness, the belt of truth, the shoes of the preparation of the gospel of peace, and the shield of faith. We take the sword of the Spirit as our New Covenant weapon of choice, which alone can conquer the world and put all things under the feet of Jesus Christ, our King.
Cleanse our hearts, Father, from all unrighteousness, and if there is any wrong attitude, any lack of love, any unforgiveness that we may retain toward others, we pray that You would purify our hearts by the washing of the word. We put to death the carnal mind and deny it any authority in our lives. We ask that You will give us the mind of Christ, so that we will be able to fulfill our callings on earth and walk even as Jesus walked.
Father, cleanse your house, so that there would be no hindrance to the outpouring of the Holy Spirit or to the work that your household is preparing to do in the time ahead.
We ask that You would pour out the baptism of fire to cleanse our nation and the world, so that Your Kingdom might grow until it fills the whole earth. Extend your grace wherever there is anything contrary to Your perfect will. We ask not that You would destroy the earth, but that the earth would be cleansed by the holy fire of Your presence.
Thank-you, Heavenly Father, for hearing our prayer. We thank you in advance for answering and for granting our request, because we know that we ask according to Your perfect will, in the name of Jesus. AMEN.
