Worthy is the Lamb who was slain,
to receive all
HONOR

777 Pray for America Anne Graham Lotz
“Therefore God exalted Him to the highest place and gave Him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. ” — Philippians 2:9-11

• We worship You, Lord Jesus, as the name that is above every name. You stand in the solitude of Yourself. There is no one like You. You are the One who sits on the throne at the center of the Universe. You are the Creator, the Messiah, the Redeemer of Israel, the Savior of the world, the Hope of the Ages. You alone are able to rule the world and fulfill the Father’s purpose for the human race, yet You humbled Yourself to the point of death on the Cross that You might be the ransom for our sin.
• I worship You as _______________
• We repent of caring more about our own reputations than Yours.
• We repent of giving You our left-over money, our left-over time, and even our left-over love, implying You are second-best.
• We repent of priorities, actions and decisions that reveal we honor and exalt ourselves, our friends, our families, other people, and even our wallets, above You.
• We repent of honoring other gods in the name of pluralism as though You are just one of many other gods, and so compromise our witness of You for the sake of toleration because we want to seem inclusive of everyone.
• We repent of honoring You with our lips, while our hearts are far from You.
• We repent of robbing You of the honor due Your name.
• I repent of _______________
• We choose to seek Your Kingdom and Your righteousness before all else, placing You

Lovest Thou Me more than These My Child?

Lovest Thou Me more than These My Child?

alone on the throne of our hearts. We count our own lives as nothing that You might be everything. We abandon ourselves to Your will. We regret that we have only one life to live for Your glory and Your honor alone. We choose in honor of Your Name to publicly declare that all have sinned, that there is forgiveness of sin at the Cross, that there is no other way to the Father but through You, that eternal life is found through faith in You alone.
• I choose now to_________
• We ask that as we honor You, You would honor us with Your favor, and the good-will of our neighbors and co-workers; that even those who don’t believe in You will respect Your name because of the way they see we honor You.
• We ask that as Your name is lifted up, dark spirits would flee.
• We ask that Your name would be a strong tower to those who take refuge in You.
• I humbly ask that____________
FOR YOUR GLORY,

AMEN

About Lift the Cross of Jesus!

My day job is writing--I'm an author and publisher of a number of books. More on that later. But there is nothing of greater importance to me than the early morning hours I spend with the Creator of the Universe. Although He knows everything there is to know, His greatest delight isn't to give us knowledge, but to give us love. My highest joy is to watch the sun rise with notebook in hand and write the words he speaks to my heart. I want to share some of those words with you here . . . words on the cross.

  1. I will try again…Hope’s internet is down and she has asked that I post the prayer here for folks. She will contact blog visitors personally when the internet issue is resolved.

    “The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of His being, sustaining all things by His powerful word.” — Hebrews 1:3

    We worship You, Lord Jesus Christ, as God in “homespun and sandals,” come down to perfectly reveal to us the character of the Father. When we want to know what God is like, we can look at You. When we want to know what’s in His heart and what’s on His mind, we can look at You. You illuminate the darkness of our circumstances and the chaotic confusion of our world, giving hope for the future. You are the marvelous, everlasting and all-powerful Light that shines abroad in our hearts that we might no longer walk in the darkness of deception, fear, ignorance and evil, but in the love and light of Your glory.
    I worship You as _____________
    We repent of tarnishing Your glory with our bitterness, meanness, unforgiveness, pridefulness, unkindness, rudeness, self-righteousness or any sin that makes others think less of You. We repent of giving others the impression that You tolerate sin because we do.
    We repent of hiding Your glory in our denominational loyalty that can lead to divisiveness and exclusiveness so that we make others feel they are on the periphery of Your inner circle, and so feel alienated from You.
    We repent of lashing out to wound others when we’ve been wounded, and so perpetuate the cycle of pain within Your Body, diminishing the radiance of Your unconditional love, mercy, and grace.
    We repent of running from Your marvelous light back into dark areas of old habits, forbidden relationships and seductive pleasures.
    We repent of giving You glory, while taking a 10% commission for ourselves.
    I repent of____________
    We choose to give You all the glory, and reflect Your glory accurately and winsomely, through the powerful presence of Your Spirit within us, so that others are irresistibly drawn to You.
    I choose now to___________
    We ask, as we repent of our sin, that You cleanse and fill us with Yourself so that Your church is filled with Your glory.
    We ask that Your church, once again, be the Light of the world, like a city on a hill that cannot be hidden, beckoning the lost to come home to You.
    We ask that our conduct and character would make others want to know You, to love You, and to put their trust in You.
    I humbly ask that__________
    FOR YOUR GLORY,

    AMEN
