Day 10: Saturday, May 10: Preparing to consecrate ourselves as His dwelling.

Prayer May 10, 2008

Father God, we pray that You will give us a Spirit of wisdom and revelation to know You.

Enlighten the eyes of our hearts.

Strengthen our inner man with power through your Spirit, so that Christ may dwell in our hearts through faith.

Root and ground us deeply in love, so that we may comprehend with all the saints through the ages, what is the length, breadth, height and depth of the love of Christ.

Strengthen us to understand the meaning of this love and fill us with the fullness of God.

We are the temple of the Holy Spirit and Jesus promised that both You and He will come and live in us and make your home in us.

Wash us, cleanse us and strengthen us through your Spirit so that we can truly become your dwelling place.

Sanctify us and set us apart as belonging to You.

We come to consecrate our hearts, our minds, our wills, our ways, our hands and feet and to invite You to come and inhabit your Church.

We dedicate ourselves to You, to live only to your glory, so that the knowledge of the glory of the Lord will fill the earth as the waters cover the seas.

Come, Holy One, Ancient of Days, Creator of heaven and earth;

Come, Jesus Christ, Son of God, High Priest, King of Kings;

Come, Holy Spirit, Spirit of wisdom and understanding, Spirit of counsel and might, Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord;

Come and consecrate us and fill us, your temple.

Amen
