Mighty God

(Week 3 of Advent)

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 no one 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.
  • 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.
