A Prayer for a Fresh Filling of the Holy Spirit
Are you weary and longing for more in this season? Working out of your own strength, striving, and running on spiritual fumes? I find myself and so many others in that place, so today I want us to pray for a fresh filling of the Holy Spirit!
“I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge – that you may be filled to measure of all the fullness of God.”Ephesians 3:16-19
Thank you that you are powerful and loving, that out of your glorious riches you strengthen us through your Spirit in our inner being. We ask you for the fresh filling of your Holy Spirit, for your power and love to fill us. We need you! Thank you that you dwell in us!
God, strengthen our roots and establish our lives firmly in your love. By the power of your Spirit, help us to know the width and depths of your love for us and to truly live in the fullness of it.
May our lives be filled with your goodness and power in a new way today.
In Jesus’ Name,
