1. FEAR Of the LORD
"Father, release the SPIRIT of the fear of God into my heart. Release the LIGHTNING and THUNDER from Your Throne (Rev.4:5) to strike my heart with Your MAJESTY. Release HOLY DREAD on my heart that makes me tremble before you. UNITE my heart to Your Word."
Unite my heart (to Your heart and Word) to fear Your name. (Ps. 86:11)
2. ENDURANCE - Patience and Perseverance
"Father, STRENGTHEN my spirit with endurance that I may do Your will with zeal (diligence) and that I not quit in my fervent pursuit of You and Your will.
Being strengthened with all power…may have great endurance and patience… (Col. 1:11 NIV)
3. LOVE - The anointing to love God is our greatest goal, possession, and reward in this age.
"Father, pour out Your love into my heart by releasing the influences of the Spirit to give me revelation of Your love for me, that it may overflow in love back to Jesus and to others. ."
I pray, that your love may abound still more…in knowledge and all discernment. (Phil. 1:9)
4. LIGHT of GLORY
"Father, let me SEE the light of Your glory (or encounter the glory realm). Give me Holy Spirit ENCOUNTERS (dreams, visions, angelic visitations, manifestations of light, fire, wind) as You gave to Moses, Isaiah, Ezekiel, and John (Ex. 33-34:29-30; Isa. 6; Ezek. 1; Rev. 1)."
A great light from heaven shone around me…8 He said to me, “I am Jesus of Nazareth…” 11 I could not see for the glory of that light…I came to Damascus. (Acts 22:6-11)
18 And he (Moses) said, "Please, show me Your glory." (Ex. 33:18)
6 Lord, lift up the light of Your countenance upon us. (Ps. 4:6)
5. ONE THING - Life FOCUS
"Father, I choose to be a person of one thing who often sits at Your feet. I set my heart to spend quality time with You and to cultivate an inward gaze toward You. Alert me when I lose this focus, align my life circumstances so I can walk this out and anoint my times with You that I may feel Your love and feel desire for You and Your Word."
4 One thing I have desired…all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord. (Ps. 27:4)
42 But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part… (Lk. 10:42)
But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part…
— Luke 10:42
6. Count me WORTHY - Faithfulness unto Fullness
"Strengthen me to walk in such faithfulness that You consider me worthy to walk in my highest calling in this age and the age to come. We need God’s help to see and gain victory over the blind spots in our life that we are not focused on."
"Father, set a guard over my lips. Free me from defensive, angry, and foolish speech (Eph. 4:29; 5:4).
Sustained communion with God requires restrained conversation with man. The Spirit is quenched in us by unwholesome speech: filthy, foolish, coarse jesting (Eph. 4:29-5:4)
"Jesus, I want to learn from You how to walk in lowliness. I commit to take Your yoke of humility (lowliness of heart) on my life in my attitudes, speech, and actions."
9. INSIGHT unto INTIMACY - Wisdom
"Father give me insight into Your Word, will, and ways. Give me wisdom that I may walk with You in intimacy under the Spirit’s creative leadership. I want to partner together with You in every issue in my life including my finances, schedule, emotions, fears, addictions, circumstances, physical body (diet, health), relationships (in the home, office, ministry), my future, etc. Give me new ideas in each area of my life."
17 May give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge
10. PEACE and JOY
"Father, strengthen my heart with supernatural peace and joy that overpowers fear, anxiety, phobias and addictions."
Sin grows fastest when fear and anxiety are present in us.

T: THANK YOU
The first thing we do is to turn our attention inwards to recognise the Holy Spirit's presence simply by thanking Him for His indwelling presence. I say, "Thank You, Holy Spirit, for your indwelling presence in my inner man." Take a few minutes to do this and a few affectionate phrases like "I love You, Holy Spirit."
He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. (Jn.15:5)
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all. (2.Cor.13:14)
Thank you, Holy Spirit, for Your bright presence in me. I love Your presence. Apart from You, I can do nothing
R: RELEASE REVELATION
I ask the Holy Spirit to release reveltion of God in me; in other words, to give me understanding of God's heart and Word. By asking for revelation, we preparwe our spirits to receive truth from the Lord.
That ...the Father of glory may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened. (Eph.1:17-18)
Holy Spirit, I ASK You to release revelation of God's hear and Word to me. I ask that You would OPEN me eyes as I read Your Word.
U: USE ME
Paul exhorted us to diligently seek to be used in the gifts of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit will use us more when we simply take time to ask Him to use us.
The manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all. (1.Cor. 12:7)
But earnestly desire the best gifts. (1.Cor.12:31)
Desire spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy. (1.Cor.14:1)
Holy Spirit, I ask You to release the manifestation of Your gifts and power through me to HELP others. I desire to be a vessel of Your presence to BLESS others.
S: STRENGTHEN ME
The Spirit will strengthen our inner man by touching our mind emotions and speech with the MIGHT of His presence. We can draw on the strength of the Spirit as a river of life in us by ASKING Him to strengthen us. IN addition to this, because teh Holy Spirit lives in us, HIs love, peace, patience and self-control are ALREADY in us. Thus, we can experience more the the power of His love, peace, patience and self control by THANKING the Holy Spirit that these fruits are already in us by VIRTUE of Him living in us.
That He would GRANT you to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man (Eph.3:16)
The FRUIT of the Spirit is LOVE, JOY, PEACE, LONG SUFFERING, KINDNESS, GOODNESS, FAITHFULNESS, GENTLENESS, SELF-CONTROL. (Gal.5:22-23)
Holy Spirit, release divine might to strengthen my MIND and EMOTIONS. Thank you for your PRESENCE of Your LOVE, peace, patience and self-control in me.
T: TEACH ME
The Holy Spirit is the GREAT Teacher who is committed to LEAD us into God's WILL and WAYS. He will GIVE us WISDOM on HOW to live in every area of our life, including how to steward our money, manage our schedule, prosper in our relationships, function in ministry, and walk in purity and health in our physical body too. WHEN we ASK the Spirit to lead us in these spheres of life, He will show us how to walk in godliness and wisdom.
The Holy Spirit...will TEACH you ALL things. (Jn.14:26)
The Spirit of TRUTH...will GUIDE you into ALL truth. (Jn.16:13)
Holy Spirit, I ask You to LEAD me in every area of my life. GIVE me NEW ideas, order my steps and OPEN doors for new relationships and new business and ministry opportunities. TEACH me how to live in a manner that is pleasing to You, and SHOW me how to best walk in Your will, blessing and PROSPERITY for my life.
