Father, I acknowledge that wealth and honor come from You; You are the ruler of all things. In Your hands are strength and power to exalt and give strength to all. You are mighty and awesome, O God! There is none like You! You are great and Your name is mighty in power. Thank You for sending Jesus, the Word made flesh, Mighty God in human likeness.
Father, I thank You for the promise of Your Word that with You, all things are possible–that You are with me and You are mighty to save! I believe this O Lord, but there is still unbelief in my heart. Help I pray.
I ask Lord Jesus that You be mighty to save . . .
In the hidden recesses of my living where I have yet to be conformed to Your image O Christ–may Your greatness be displayed.
In the lives of friends and loved ones who have yet to know You, destroy the work of the evil one by Your mighty power and draw them to Yourself.
In the brokenness of the world and the lives of those around me, reveal Yourself as Mighty God, mighty to save–and use me as Your messenger I pray.
I know that you can do all things, that no plan of Yours can be thwarted and that You are able to do even more that I can think to ask! And so I confess with my mouth that in every situation that seeks to overwhelm me, my salvation depends on You. You are my mighty rock, my refuge. You are mighty God and I join in with all of heaven and proclaim:
“Holy, holy, holy are You Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come! You are worthy Lord Jesus, the Word made flesh, mighty to save, the Lamb Who was slain–to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength, honor and glory and praise!”
You are Mighty God and I will worship and serve You only. In the Mighty name of Jesus I affirm these things. Amen and amen.

Praise your God, who alone is holy (Rev. 15:4). Thank him for the glorious promise that one day all nations will come and worship him. Confess sins which keep you from drawing close to God. Commit yourself daily to exalting and worshiping your holy God. Ask God to help you keep his command to “be holy, because I am holy” (Lev. 11:45).
In all your family relationships, pray that the truth of Heb. 12:14 will be central: “Make every effort to live in peace with all men and to be holy.”
“If family worship is neglected, other attempts at prayer are like sprinkling the foliage of a plant while leaving the roots dry.” —Anonymous

Advent – Day 22
“All the days of the oppressed are wretched, but the cheerful heart has a continual feast” (Proverbs 15:15).
Lord, prepare our hearts to be cheerful. May we always find our joy in You, even in the midst of difficult times. Father, help our hearts to have a continual feast as we wait for the coming of the Christ Child. (See also: Proverbs 17:22)
