A Prayer in Agreement With God's Word

Dear Father,
I just don’t know what to say right now
for this person and this situation,
But I know this is a call for
a time of focused contemplation. 

Today I found in Your Word:
(and quote the specific verse here in your prayer) 

I come into agreement with You,
I declare a remarkable blessing in this situation; 

You know everything, Almighty LORD,
I do ask for new revelation. 

       I do not ask with a bashful whimper now,
                                   I come trusting You now,
                                I come with boldness now,
                             I come with confidence now.

I agree with the great blessing You are giving, 
The answer may be delayed, I know that’s true; 
It may not be — at first — what is desired or expected,
But, dear Father, I am in agreement with You.  

You get all the glory, the praise, the honor,
Jesus, Your Son is our wonderful Savior,
Your Holy Spirit indwells each believer;
I am the completely grateful receiver.
