The light post in a dark night guides sailors towards the harbour to berth their ship safely against the tempest of the sea as huge waves, lined up, surge from many nautical miles in the ocean ready to slam them against the harbour. Your spirit is the light post God has put in you to guide you through this tempestuous world. Keep it awake and let it glow in you 365 days/120 years if the Lord tarries.
Prayer for Alertness
Pray this prayer so you spirit man will be quickened from spiritual slumber, and your heart will be a sanctuary of His holiness.
Lord I thank you for your Holy Spirit that you have freely given to me. I decree that my spirit man shall be alive and awake to the promptings of the Holy Spirit. Search all the inward parts of my heart and purge away every thing that does not glorify you in Jesus name. Let mercy and truth fill my heart and lovingkindness be my attitude to those around me and those you have put under my care. Strengthen me in my inner man and grant me physical strength to tackle the challenges of daily living in Jesus name. Thank you for removing the pain for every blow I have received and teaching me to turn away from evil. Thank you for Jesus who was beaten with many stripes so the blows I receive will never consume me in Jesus name. Henceforth let no man trouble me for I bear on my body the marks of the Lord Jesus Christ (Gal 6:17) in Jesus name. Amen.
