“When Solomon finished praying, fire came down from heaven and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices, and the glory of the Lord filled the temple.”2 Chronicles 7:1
Father, I lay my life on Your altar as an offering to You. May every agenda, every desire, every option I have be laid down to be consumed by You. I pray that in every way I will acknowledge that I am Yours alone, and will love and serve You alone.
I pray for fire – a fire that consumes and a fire that cleanses. Come like fire upon my heart, Lord, and let Your glory fill me! I pray that every bit of dross will be consumed by Your holiness and Your love taking up all of the space in my heart.
“Is not my word like fire,” declares the Lord, “and like a hammer that breaks a rock in pieces?”Jeremiah 23:29
Bring Your Word like a fire in my bones, Lord. I pray it will burn within me, consuming every lie that still has life in me. I pray that every hard place in me will break as truth falls on my heart. Father, I’m asking for You to pour out Your Spirit in me, and let it purify and satisfy me. I ask for a fresh baptism of Spirit and fire for the days ahead, Lord. (Luke 3:16)
Fill me, God. Fill my mouth with Your Word, fill my heart with Your love and compassion, fill my life with Your goodness. Turn every dry place, every desert in my life into pools of living water, and satisfy my every thirst. As Your unfailing love fills the earth, let it fill me to overflowing, Lord. I pray that love will pour forth from a heart that has been emptied of self, refined by fire, and filled with an unearthly love. (Psalm 81:10, 103:5, 107:9, 119:64)
Come Lord Jesus. Your will be done on earth and in me, as it is in heaven.
In Your mighty Name I pray. Amen.
