“Dear Heavenly Father,
It says in your word that you have provided every good thing that we, as humans, enjoy. The most wonderful gift that I have been given is salvation from eternal damnation through your Son, Jesus.
I would like to have a deeper relationship with you, my heavenly Father. To really understand and get to know you better, I need a supernatural understanding of just how much you love me, so I can walk in the same kind of love that you demonstrate to me.
Lord, I hunger to know you deeper, to serve you with joy and to have my priorities straight in a world that does not honor or respect your ways. To do this, I need you to fill me with more of your spirit.
Just as my physical baptism is a physical representation of my soul being cleansed from my sins, I would like you to baptize my soul. I want to be submerged in the spirit of God. I want my soul and my spirit to be saturated in the power of the living God so I can walk with power and do your will without being double-minded.
In the name of Jesus, I am taking this next step by faith. I accept the Baptism of the Holy Ghost that the Lord offers to all his children. I am aware that this will open my spiritual eyes to see what is going on in the natural on a more spiritual level.
I am ready to accept the responsibilities that the Lord will lay on my heart. I am dropping my old way of doing things for something better; this is whatever God’s plan is for me.
In the name of Jesus, I choose to obey, for obedience is better than sacrifice. I am accepting the gift of a deeper faith, a truer love for God and a better understanding of God’s word and how to apply it to my everyday life. I accept the gift of wisdom and spiritual discernment and with all that will come to me through these gifts, I put on humility as nothing good has come from me naturally. I will give God the honor, credit and glory for all the work that He chooses to do through me, His obedient servant.
Thank you, Lord for the power you have entrusted to me through the Baptism of your Holy Spirit. Help me to help others as I go to new heights and levels and you reveal what my mission is on this earth. Amen.”
