Fresh Filling with the Holy Spirit

This page is part of our sample prayers section

Scripture refs:   Ephesians 5:17-20 NIV ,   Luke 3:16 NIV 

"Lord Jesus, I ask for your forgiveness from my sin.  I turn from my sin now and thank you for the forgiveness I have through your shed blood on the cross.  I thank you that you have sent your Holy Spirit to live in me, to empower me to live a life pleasing to you.  Lord, I pray that you will baptize me afresh with your Holy Spirit.   Holy Spirit, I welcome you now into my life and invite your fullness to fall on me.   Please sharpen my ears to your voice and train my eyes and heart to the truth in the scriptures.  Guide me in all my ways and convict me of the sin in my life. Please equip and prepare me to carry out God's work through my life.   Please fill me with God's love for people and reclaim all areas of my life for Jesus Christ.  I give you praise, now and forever,  hallowed Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Amen."

This prayer is based on Ephesians 3:16-19, where Paul prays for the Ephesians for strengthening of their "inner man."  The Holy Spirit is the one that accomplishes that strengthening:

"Father God, I confess that I am a sinner, and that I am weak in the face of temptation. Please forgive me for my sins in name of Jesus Christ. Lord, I put my trust and strength in You. I ask that you will strengthen me with Your might through your Spirit in my inner man today. I pray that Jesus would dwell in my heart and I believe that He will by faith. I ask for your wisdom and understanding concerning Jesus’ love for me. I thank you for what Jesus did for me on the cross, and I desire to walk resurrected with Him in obedience, joy and love today. Please fill me with your fullness through Your Holy Spirit today. To You be all the glory, honor and praise. Amen."
