A Vital Prayer

From Graham Cooke’s Manifesting Your Spirit:

Father, thank you for the life-giving water that resides inside me. You are a well and a fountain. I declare that I do not thirst except for a deeper walk with you.

Dig out that inner well, O Lord, so that hundreds may drink from what you pour out in me. Teach me to be resilient, passionate and alive!

Infuse me with your exuberance until I am massively encouraged—constantly. Develop the internal place of my heart so that it becomes Your living space.

Empower me, Great God, to see life exactly as You do—to view everything and everyone through the lens of Jesus. Teach me to think with the mind of Christ so that my thoughts are an extension of my worship.

As You manifest Your Spirit in me, may the privilege of my encounters with You release the hearts of many to come further on and further in.

For Jesus’ sake.
