Matthew 5:8, Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
Heavenly Father, You are The Great I Am, You Are The Ancient of Days, You Are The Alpha & The Omega, You Are The Holy One, The Righteous, Omniscient, Omnipotent, The Prince of Peace. And now Lord we ask that You forgive us for not guarding our heart as we should have – for allowing our hearts and souls to become contaminated with the cares of this world. And it is because of the blood of Jesus, we have forgiveness of sins. Because You Are One, and there is no variance concerning Your God-head, we confess like Peter, Thou Art Jesus The Christ, Son of The Living God. And because You desire to be seen, and known by us, we ask Lord that You reveal Yourself to us, that we may receive the blessing of knowing You as Lord, as Deliverer, as Healer, as Master, as Savior, as The Bread of Life, as The Good Shepherd, as Our Peace, that we might have great boldness and conviction, and so our faith may stand in all times. And so Lord we ask that You purify our hearts in Jesus’ name. Purge our souls thoroughly oh God, that we may confess Jesus is The Way, and there is no other way. That Jesus is The Truth and all others are liars. That Jesus is The Life, and without Him, we cannot live. Lord, Purify our our minds so we can apprehend the mind of Christ – so we are mindful of things of the spirit. Lord, search our hearts and purify our will to remove every motive and intention that is contrary to the things that are on Your heart oh God. Yes Lord, even purge out any comfort we may have to remain ignorant of things that You consider a matter of urgency for us right now. Lord, Purify our imaginations so the meditations of our heart please You. Purify our emotions so our feelings align with the way You feel about our various situations. Purify our intellect of corrupt knowledge based on lies, white lies, myths, fallacies, misinformation, half-truths, my truths, errors in teaching, poor upbringing, poor instruction, hypocrisy, and false prophesy. Lord we pray for a spiritual detox in our intellect. Purge out the evil, and let us retain only that which is good, according to Your word. Lord we come earnestly seeking You. Increase our capacity to receive the revelation knowledge of Who Jesus Is. Lord increase our hunger and thirst to know You intimately. And now we say thank You Lord for what you are doing in our hearts today. We praise You Lord now for the blessing of revelation of Jesus Christ. Thank You Heavenly Father for the miracle of revelation knowledge happening for us during this fast. And we give You all the praise, glory, and honor for all these things in Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
