“And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.”

(Ephesians 6:18a NIV)

For today, I thought I’d share a personal prayer as I have presented it to my Lord. I call it “My Wish List”. It is a compilation of excerpts from three Scripture portions: Ephesians 6:10-20, Psalm 110, and Psalm 118. Feel free to make this your own prayer each day.

Dear Lord:

  • Empower me to stand firm, equipped with Your full armour, through Christ’s Spirit reigning within, and with His mighty sceptre extended over me. (Ephesians 6:11; Psalm 110:2)
  • Empower me to be strong in You and Your mighty power, trusting that You are ruling in the midst of my enemies. (Ephesians 6:10; Psalm 110:2)
  • Empower me to view my struggle with people, whom I would otherwise see as the enemy, as wrestling with principalities, powers, and the spiritual hosts of wickedness in heavenly places. (Ephesians 6:12)
  • Empower me to experience personally Your help in triumphing over adversarial influences on my life through Your powerful presence within, my trustworthy shield of faith. (Psalm 118:7; Ephesians 6:16)
  • Empower me to experience Your leading me into a spacious place whenever feeling hard-pressed and silenced because of my faith, in a sense, as Your ambassador in chains. (Psalm 118:5; Ephesians 6:20)
  • Empower me to be comforted in Your spacious place of grace and freedom whenever feeling smothered by a stinging swarm of guilt and condemnation. (Psalm 118:12)
  • Empower me to taste Christ’s sweet forgiveness through His priestly role, in the order of the new covenant promise. (Psalm 110:4)
  • Empower me to recognize Your preservation through Your chastening fires within. (Psalm 118:18)
  • Empower me to be free from fear, knowing that You are with me and that I am clad with Your spiritual armour. (Psalm 118:6; Ephesians 6:11,13)
  • Empower me to experience success that You grant. (Psalm 118:25)
  • Empower me to sense Your light shining on me every day, dispelling the powers of this dark world. (Psalm 118:27; Ephesians 6:12)
  • Empower me to keep on seeing new reasons to exalt You. (Psalm 118:28)
  • Empower me always to have a song within, that I may rejoice today and be glad. (Psalm 118:24)
  • Empower me to live to proclaim what You have done through Your gift of salvation through Christ. (Psalm 118:13; Ephesians 6:19)

Prayer: You are my God, and I will praise You. Your love endures forever! (Psalm 118:28-29) Amen.
