Day 17

Adoration

You are the high and lofty One
Who inhabits eternity, whose name is holy.
You live in a high and holy place
But also with him who is contrite and lowly in spirit,
To revive the spirit of the lowly
And to revive the heart of the contrite. (Isaiah 57:15)

The multitudes who went before Jesus and those who
followed shouted,
“Hosanna to the Son of David!
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!
Hosanna in the highest!” (Matthew 21:9)

Pause to express your thoughts of praise and worship.

 

Confession

We have sinned with our fathers;
We have committed iniquity and acted wickedly.
(Psalm 106:6)

Ask the Spirit to search your heart and reveal any areas of
unconfessed sin. Acknowledge these to the Lord and thank
Him for His forgiveness.

 

Renewal

As an obedient child, may I not conform myself to the former
lusts I had when I lived in ignorance, but as He who called me
is holy, so may I be holy in all my conduct, because it is written:
“You shall be holy, for I am holy.” (1 Peter 1:14-16)

You are the Lord my God; may I consecrate myself and be holy,
because You are holy. You are the Lord who brought Your people
up out of Egypt to be their God; therefore may I be holy, because
You are holy. (Leviticus 11:44-45; 19:2)

Pause to add your own prayers for personal renewal.

Intercession

The Lord Jesus prayed these words for the unity of all who
would believe in Him: “I ask that all of them may be one,
Father, just as You are in Me and I am in You, that they
also may be in Us, that the world may believe that You sent
Me. And the glory which You gave Me I have given to them,
that they may be one, just as We are one: I in them, and
You in Me, that they may be perfected in one, that the
world may know that You have sent Me and have loved
them, even as You have loved Me.” (John 17:21-23)

Affirmation

A Shoot will come forth from the stump of Jesse;
From his roots a Branch will bear fruit.
The Spirit of the Lord will rest on Him—
The Spirit of wisdom and of understanding,
The Spirit of counsel and of power,
The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord—
And He will delight in the fear of the Lord.
He will not judge by what He sees with His eyes,
Or decide by what He hears with His ears,
But with righteousness He will judge the poor
And decide with fairness for the meek of the earth.
And He will strike the earth with the rod of His mouth;

With the breath of His lips He will slay the wicked.
Righteousness will be His belt,
And faithfulness the sash around His waist. (Isaiah 11:1-5)

Behold, a virgin shall be with child and will give birth to a son,
and they will call His name Immanuel, which means,
“God with us.” (Matthew 1:23)

Pause to reflect upon these biblical affirmations.

 

Thanksgiving

This poor man cried out, and the Lord heard him,
And saved him out of all his troubles.
The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him,
And delivers them. (Psalm 34:6-7)

I waited patiently for the Lord,
And He turned to me and heard my cry.
God lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire;
He set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.
He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to
our God.
Many will see and fear
And put their trust in the Lord. (Psalm 40:1-3)

Pause to offer your own expressions of thanksgiving.

 

Closing Prayer

Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
Be pleasing in Your sight,
O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer. (Psalm 19:14)
