Staying Consistent And Focused

 “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. Avoid godless chatter, because those who indulge in it will become more and more ungodly.” (2 Timothy 2:15-16)

Day 13: This Prayer is taken from the Devotional Book: 21 Destiny Prayers

For Life Coaches/Others

Heavenly Father, I pray that I will be consistent in all my ways, as I continue in my coaching practice/ministry. It is important that I “walk the talk.” I pray that I will not put a yoke and burden on others that I cannot or will not carry. Help me to guide my clients in setting achievable goals as they continue in their journey to fulfilling your plan and purpose for their lives. When I give them suggestions, let it bring positive and lasting growth when they apply it in their lives. Ultimately, the decision-making is the responsibility of my clients. I pray that I will be supportive of their visions and motivate them in their journey to achieving their goals.

Help me to be an effective coach, helping them to identify and overcome their challenges and reach their goals as I walk alongside them while holding them accountable. If I do not have an answer to their questions, I pray that I will not act as if I know it all, and I will not claim to be in a position that I am not qualified for, to satisfy my clients. Instead, help me to walk in integrity by being open and honest with them and where relevant, refer them to a suitable coach. Let my words be your words, let my thoughts be your thoughts, and let my actions be your actions, as guided by your Holy Spirit. I know that without you, I cannot support or walk alongside those that need guidance, I can only do this if you are walking with me and using me in the lives of my clients. Help me to remember that you are the boss and you are the one working through me, using me as your vessel, to the glory of your Holy name.

There are so many things that could bring distractions to derail me from where you are leading me. I pray that I will not lose focus of the calling you have for me. Help me not to entangle myself in gossip, slander, unnecessary controversy, wrangling, or trying to prove my faith or belief to others who do not approve of the progress and the work you are doing in my life. Let my focus be on the path you are leading me on. I pray that you will cut from the root anything in my life that would hinder me from following the path you have chosen for me and the vision you have given me. Keep me and detach me from anyone that will be a hindrance or roadblock to my journey of fulfilling my destiny in you, in Jesus’ name.

For Counselors/Others

“The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me because the LORD has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives, and release from darkness for the prisoners.” (Isaiah 61:1)

Heavenly Father, I want to thank you for allowing me to be a vessel in your hands. You have chosen me and anointed me to give your good news to the poor, to help the brokenhearted on their journey to healing, and to declare freedom and release to those who have been held captive or in bondage to the trauma of their past and the oppression of the kingdom of darkness? Only you can set the captives free, and only you can heal the brokenhearted and bind up their wounds, yet you are using me as your servant to do this in the lives of others. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. Healing is the work of the Holy Spirit. I want to thank the Holy Spirit for being there with me all along throughout my counseling sessions. For opening and sharpening the five senses of my spirit and revealing what is going on with my clients. I thank Him for the victory and the breakthrough He brings into their lives during the sessions.

Lord Jesus, you are the head counselor. You counseled your disciples and those that came to you for help, healing, and hope. You did not turn your back on helping anyone except those that rejected you. I thank you for trusting me to wear the same shoes you wore; this is a great honor. I know that the work of counseling is not by power or might, but by the power of the Holy Spirit. I pray for the same anointing that was upon you, Lord Jesus, to be upon me as I continue to counsel and help others overcome the pain, hurt, trauma, and the struggles of their past or present.

I pray that each time I wear the hat of counseling and enter into that office, you will give me your divine wisdom, divine knowledge and understanding, and a spirit of counsel to be able to diagnose the problem or challenge my counselees are facing. Help me not to use the anointing of yesterday or to solve a problem with my own wisdom but to help others by relying on your power, your strength, wisdom, and arm of deliverance.

I ask for your help daily in growing continually in the fruit of the spirit; love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Galatians 5:22). Help me to show empathy, compassion, and love to those you bring into my practice/ministry. Give me discernment to be able to apply the resources necessary for each of my counselee’s issues correctly. I pray that I will be full of goodness, filled with knowledge, and competent to instruct others in the areas you have called me to be of service to the glory of your name (Romans 15:14).

As a Counselor, I hear different problems and challenges that others are facing. I pray that I will not be affected in any negative way either mentally, physically, or psychologically by these events in others’ lives. Each time I finish in the counseling room, help me to remember to submit my mind to you for renewal, refreshing, and cleansing.

Whenever I face situations that are spiritually rooted in the lives of my counselees, I pray that you will help me to stand strong in you and not be afraid to use the authority you have given me as your vessel, to declare freedom, liberty, and deliverance to those that are bound by the chains and shackles of the enemy.

Finally, I pray that after I have helped others to overcome the pain, hurt, and trauma of their lives, I will not be a failure and a lost cause or a disappointment in fulfilling the mandate you have given me in Jesus’ name.
