A Temple’s Prayer of Homage to the Creator

Our Holy Father

We come before you humbled by the thought of your holy sovereignty; we acknowledge that you are the creator and all creation exists by you and for you. We rejoice that you are working all things after the counsel of your own will and have a perfect plan for your creation that will be revealed in accordance with that plan.

We thank and praise you for the loving grace and mercy that sent your Son to the cross to redeem your fallen creation; we recognize that in your power you could have destroyed the old creation and produced a new creation with great ease. We thank you for your faithfulness to your creation and your promises to that creation which resulted in our liberation from sin through the shed blood of your Son.

We are eternally grateful for the gift of adoption into your family by faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and rejoice in your unconditional love and faithfulness to us as your children in Christ Jesus. We know we have failed to live up to your divine standard and thank you for the privilege of restoration through the simple acknowledgement and confession of sin to you.

We rejoice in the baptism of the Holy Spirit into the body of Christ and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit now and forever and pray that we may use our bodies in a way that is pleasing to you and honors the great gift we have been given by your grace and mercy. We praise and thank you for the intercessory prayers of the Holy Spirit on our behalf who pleads for us in harmony with your own will with groanings that cannot be expressed in words.

We wish to acknowledge with deepest gratitude that you are working all things together for good in our lives and are thankful you are conforming each of us to the image of your son, Jesus Christ. By your grace we seek to live lives that please you and bring honor and glory to the Lord Jesus Christ. We ask for your guidance and blessing that we might grow in our faith and faithfully serve you all of our lives.

We are truly thankful for the many blessings you bring into our lives and acknowledge that without you we are nothing. May our lives be a sweet smelling savor to you as we seek to serve and honor you in the power of God, the Holy Spirit.

In Jesus name we pray, amen.

19 Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, 20 for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

In September of last year I published this prayer; I felt compelled to publish it again as we approach the coming election and our nation struggles with a multitude of challenges.

    • Hello Mark,
      After our conversation I started thinking about our national condition and felt compelled to publish the prayer again as it was such a clear expression of my concerns for our nation. I am truly thankful God is working all things after the counsel of his own will.
      David
