Praying God's Names- ADONAI part 2

To AdonaiLord of Lords, King of Kings – Master

I give my heart to you. I give my will to you. My ego, my emotions my body, my wants and desires I give to you. You are my owner and I am your slave.

Ask anything of me and I will do it for You provide the means to complete the task. I trust in you.

Each day I will empty my heart to you that I may hear your voice and obey you.

I honor you. I give you reign over my life, my marriage, my home, my family. They belong to you and I only have them for awhile.

I pray you use me to do your will. Create in me a servant’s heart ready to do whatever needs doing. By doing, by serving others, I serve you.

I don’t want these ink marks on paper to be empty words; sounds in the air with no heart or meat. I truly desire to serve you – to do your will – to do the next task before me. You know the intentions of my heart. You know how deep or shallow my commitment to you runs; how easily I am distracted by the cares of the day.

So I ask you to forgive me for careless words and actions. Cleanse me & refresh me. Make me holy & righteous before you. Love me and care for me even when I am slow to understand, rebellious or stubborn.

Only you have a right to me. As a person, a wife, a mother or grandmother, I belong to you! You fight my battles for me! You give me victory! You care for me!

May these written words be the truth in my life.

Praying God's Names- ADONAI part 1

ADONAI Ruler – Master

Adonai, Ruler of the universe, King of all Kings, you rule & reign over all creation.

Lord of lords, your lovingkindness is everlasting.

You decide what I must do, & how to do it. You provide the tools I need. You, a good master, know my talents and give me work using my abilities. You take care of me, for I am yours. I have no life of my own, but only live to do your bidding. I belong to you; I give my heart to you because you bought me with your sacrifice.

I bow before you, Oh Lord. You are my master; I am your slave. In everything you ask of me, you provide all I need to complete the task. You enable me through your Spirit. Your yoke is easy and your burden is light.

You came as a servant to show me how to serve. You loved me first, so I would know how to love. The desire of my heart is to know you, to hear you, to worship you, to obey you, to serve you. I long to hear you welcome me to heaven saying, “Well done, my good and faithful servant.

You will come again, with a shout and the trumpet, to call us home to be with you. The whole earth will see you come and every knee will bow, every tongue will confess you are Lord -- Adonai. You, Oh Lord, triumph over evil and defeat wickedness. You will bind Satan, the evil one, and reign as King of Kings for a thousand years of peace on the earth. You will cast Satan into the bottomless pit and rule forever & ever in Heaven from beside the right hand of the Father.

Even so, come quickly, Lord Jesus, my Adonai.
