Holy God, you are the one true God. Jesus, you are my Lord. Holy Spirit, increase your working through me. “More love, more power, more of you in my life.” (Michael W. Smith) The lyrics keep ringing in my head, bouncing around in my heart and soul. Just a simple, yet powerful sentiment. Increase your territory within me. Wipe out all my strongholds standing between us, Lord. Let the working power of your Spirit take over, not only in my worship and prayer times, but also in my every thought and deed. Let your light shine brightly in me. May it speak to the darkness around me, and make it flee. Allow your beacon to support me in everything that comes. The hard gets harder, yet you are my strength. Sustain me all the way to victory. Empower me to point others to Jesus. I ask these things in the name and authority of Jesus, who prayed in the garden, according to the Father’s good and perfect will. Amen.

“If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!” (Luke 11:13 ESV)
