Heavenly Father, We affirm together this day that you anointed Jesus Christ with the Holy Spirit and with power, and that he went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil because you were with him. We affirm that you raised him from the dead on the third day and that you have appointed him to be the judge of the living and the dead. I pray in Jesus’ name for ______________________ and me this day. I thank you that you are a God who does not show favoritism, and so I pray that we all will fear you and do what is right, that we may be acceptable in your sight. I pray that we will imitate you, and that there will be no partiality with us. Instead may we accept everyone who fears you and does what is right, regardless of their ethnic background. Where we are anxious about anything, I pray that you will grant us peace through Jesus Christ, and that we will recognize you in all our circumstances as the Lord of all. I ask you to anoint us with the Holy Spirit and power, as you anointed Jesus, that we may go around doing good and healing those who are under the power of the devil. May you be with us to empower us to minister to others. I ask that you give us opportunities to speak to others about your Son and to bear witness that you have appointed Jesus as the judge of the living and the dead. I pray that through us, many people will come to believe in Jesus and receive forgiveness of sins through his name. I pray that your Spirit will come on us, and be poured out on us, that your Spirit may be manifested through us and that we may praise you. May your Spirit in turn be poured out on everyone who comes to faith in your Son. Amen.
