inner man *

*16 To be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man… (Eph.
3:16) *

A. *F- Fear of God*: Father, release the fear of God into my
heart, strike me with awe that I might tremble before Your majestic presence
(Isa. 66:2). Cause me to always delight in fearing You.

*40 I will put My fear in their hearts so that they will not depart from Me.

B. *E- Endurance **(patience)*: Father, strengthen my spirit
that I may persevere with a steadfast heart in mundane seasons, difficult
circumstances and in standing for truth that brings persecution.

*11 Being strengthened with all power…may have great endurance and patience…
(Col 1:11 NIV)*

C. *L- Love*: Father, tenderize my heart by releasing
revelation of Your love to me. Let me feel the power of *Your 4-fold
love*(love from You, for You, to myself then overflowing to others).
Set Your
seal of fire on my heart (Song 8:6). (We pray in agreement with Jesus'
prophecy in Mt. 22:37 and His prayer in Jn. 17:26 that we would walk in the
anointing to receive and give love).

*23 You (Father)…have loved them as You have loved Me. 24 Father, I
desirethat they whom You gave Me may be with
Me where I am…26 I have declared to them Your name, and will declare it,
that the love with which You loved Me may be in them… (Jn. 17:23-26) *

*5 The love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit...
(Rom. 5:5) *

* *

*9 I pray that your love may abound still more and more… (Phil. 1:9) *

* *

*18 That you…may be able to comprehend…what is the width and length and
depth and height…19 to know the love (affection) of Christ which passes
knowledge. (Eph. 3:18-19) *

D. *L- Light of Glory*: Father, allow me to see Your glory.
Give me Holy Spirit encounters as You gave Moses (Ex. 33), Isaiah (Isa. 6),
Ezekiel (Ezek. 1), Daniel (Dan. 7-12), John (Rev. 1), etc.

*18 And he (Moses) said, "Please, show me Your glory." (Ex. 33:18) *

*51 You shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and
descending… (Jn. 1:51)*

E. *O- One thing life focus*: Father, speak to me whenever I
need to realign my heart to sit before You more often. I commit to re-adjust
my schedule and priorities to live as a "person of one thing" by setting You
continually before my heart. I will do this both in prosperity and
difficulty.

*41 Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. 42 But one
thingis needed, and Mary has
chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her. (Lk. 10:41-42)
*

F. *W- Walking Worthy *(*purity/holiness)*: Father, I pray
that You strengthen me to walk in a way that You consider worthy of my
highest calling and to escape the escalating sin in the End-Times that I may
stand in obedience to Your leadership. Keep me from taking the grace of God
in vain (1 Cor. 6:1). Let me lay hold of the fullness that I may not ever
"waste" the power You give me.

*11 We also pray always for you that our God would count you worthy of this
calling, and fulfill all the good pleasure of His goodness and the work of
faith with power… (2 Thes. 1:11) *

my heart to obey You (Ps. 17:3; 39:1). Free me from defensive, angry and
foolish speech (Eph. 4:29; 5:4). *Sustained communion* with the Spirit
requires *restrained communication* with man

*3 Set a guard, O LORD, over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips.

* *

*14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable...

11:29)*

I. *I- Intimacy **(affectionate zeal)*: Father, reveal
Your name (personality) to me that I may feel Your affection that tenderizes
my heart and awakens me in zeal. Release revelation of Yourself as Father
and Jesus as the Bridegroom King. Let me hear the voice of the Bridegroom
(Jn. 3:29). Give me wisdom on how to live before You and to carry my heart
in love, purity and humility.

*26 I have declared to them Your name, and will declare it, that the
lovewith which You loved Me may be in
them, and I in them. (Jn. 17:26) *

Him… (Eph. 1:17) *

that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. (Rom. 15:13) *
