1 Corinthians 14:12, Even so ye, forasmuch as ye are zealous of spiritual gifts, seek that ye may excel to the edifying of the church.
Heavenly Father, You Are The God of every good and perfect gift. And we thank You for the spiritual gifts You have given us so the church may be built up and edified. Lord, we confess and repent for neglecting the spiritual gifts you have given us. And today, we commit in our hearts to being good and faithful stewards of our gifts. Lord, we thank You that our gifts are making room for us, opening doors that no man can shut, and blessing the saints and people in our world. And now Lord we confess by faith that this is the year and time appointed that You are revealing spiritual gifts, purpose and assignments to the believers in Jesus’ name. You are making known to us the purpose for which You created us, that we all may operate in our gifts, function with the anointing of the Holy Spirit, fulfill divine mandates, being encouraged in our hearts and thoroughly furnished in the spirit to build up the church and encourage our families, friends, and loved ones in righteousness in Jesus’ name. Lord we ask that You teach us and make us aware of all the spiritual gifts we have at our disposal at UVCF Church for our personal and spiritual growth, maturity, health, well-being, and overall prosperity in Jesus’ name. Lord, grant us wisdom and good understanding concerning every spiritual gifts that we may be able to operate in love and that our gifts are seasoned with grace this year. Holy Spirit, continue to arrest our hearts and minds this year from all distractions, so we have the mental alertness and readiness we need to function in our gifts on a higher level this year in Jesus’ name. Holy Spirit, give us good understanding of the blessings of the five fold Ministry gifts of the Apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor and teacher. Holy Spirit, teach us and equip us concerning all the spiritual gifts, the word of wisdom, word of knowledge, the gift of faith, the gifts of healing, working of miracles, prophecy, discerning of spirits, divers kinds of tongues, interpretation of tongues, as well as with the gifts of helps, and governments in Jesus’ name. Lord increase our understanding of the gifts of administration, craftsmanship, exhortation, giving, hospitality, interpretation of dreams, interpretation of tongues, leadership, mercy, serving, simplicity, wisdom and worship. Lord give us to understand Your liberty concerning our gifts and the order You have for when we operate in the church. We thank You Lord in advance for gift impartation and activation happening this year. We pray Lord that You take us from gift meditation to gift activation this year. Lord, teach us how to wait on our calling, and give us the courage to answer the call and say Yes, when You call us. Holy Spirit instruct us as to what we need to do, so we can grow and excel in our spiritual gifts, and be a blessing to our church, the saints, our families, our children, our friends, as well as those You call us to share the gospel with in the world. Holy Spirit, help us to exercise our gifts and walk in the fruit of the spirit daily in Jesus’ name, that people may see the love of Christ in everything we do. Lord we want to be filled with Your Spirit, that there may be a holy inspiration filling the atmosphere at UVCF Church, that there be a great stirring up of the gifts, that our hearts may always be on fire for You God, and that we minister in with a fresh anointing that compels people of all ages and walks of life, to listen and take heed to the gospel of the Kingdom of heaven, that they might receive the good news that Jesus saves. And for all these things, we bless Your Holy Name oh God. We thank You for Your loving-kindness. And we give You all the praise, glory, honor now as we believe it all done in Jesus’ name. Amen.
