Hebrews 9:14, How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God! (NIV)
Father God in Heaven, You are Jehovah Tsidkenu, The Lord Our Righteousness. I confess Jesus Christ is the only one who’s sacrifice could be counted worthy atone for all of my sins. And because I believe by faith in the finished work of Jesus’ death on the cross, I confess in the power of God to cleanse my conscience mind of any acts of sin that invites death into my spirit, my body, or my soul. For I know that satan comes to steal, kill, and destroy the abundant life that God desires me to have. And so by faith, I plead the blood of Jesus Christ over my mind today. Even though I may not understand how God is working in my life, I choose to lay down my will, and I trust and obey my God of Righteousness. Now because my mind has been cleansed, I know that I am seated in heavenly places with Christ Jesus, and I use my Kingdom authority take back authority over my mind, my choices, my feelings, and my understanding. I decree and declare that I have the power to think new thoughts. I have power to walk as a new creature in Christ. I choose to follow in Jesus’ footsteps. I only go where the Holy Spirit instructs me to go. And I only do what the Holy Spirit directs me to do. For when I walk by faith, I know that I am pleasing The Lord. Now Heavenly Father of Mercy and Love, we forgive everyone in my life who acted out of hate, jealously, pride, and selfishness – causing us to be hurt. For we release them today, trusting in the power of Jesus Christ to heal every broken heart. And as we forgive them, we apologize for our own acts of hate, jealously, pride, and selfishness that caused us not to walk in love toward others. Now that we turn back to You Heavenly Father, we look with great expectation and hope for the promise of Your holy presence to consume our hearts today. Yes Lord! Consume our hearts. Consume our minds. Fill our lives with Your presence, that we may have joy and gladness on the inside. Lord thank You for declaring us righteous. Thank You for hearing our prayer this morning. For Your Grace is Amazing. Your Love is Unfailing. You Are Excellent in All Your Ways. In everything we do, be glorified forever, in the name of our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ I pray. Amen.
