The Esteemed version of the Whale Belly prayer

My Father, You have known and set me apart for the nations even before I was knit in my mother’s womb. Apart from You I have no good thing. You are the portion of my inheritance and my cup. Indeed the boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places. I have chosen to set You O Lord always before me; You are at my right hand thus I shall not be moved. You have examined me and know all about me. You know when I sit down and when I get up. You know my thoughts before I think them [from afar]. You know where I go [my path] and where I lie down. You are familiar with everything I do. Lord, even before I say a word [when no word is on my tongue], You already know it [all of it].You hem me in, in front and in back and have put Your hand on me. Now my Father I praise [thank] You because You made me in an amazing [awesome] and wonderful way. What You have done is wonderful. I know this very well.

Father, Jesus prayed for me as one who believes in You. He said that He has given me the glory You gave Him and He also said that we are one with You and Him. He also showed that as long as the Father is working, I Your son/ daughter should also be working and bearing fruit as a branch in the vine. I continuously remain in You Christ Jesus that I may continuously bear much fruit; may the Father prune me that I may be more fruitful with fruit that lasts. I willingly accept the Spirit of God which has been poured out, that He may counsel and teach me, that I may bear the fruit of the Spirit which is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

Holy Spirit, search me and be there any iniquity within me, expunge it. Fill me with the revelation knowledge as given by Christ Jesus about my responsibility in the Kingdom of God. My continuous prayer is that the Kingdom of God may be here on earth and I know that as a son/ daughter, I have a responsibility on seeing this happen. As You reveal it to me, equip me with the Spirit of wisdom, knowledge and understanding that I may glorify the Lord with a fully accomplished assignment. Jesus You have said that if I overcome, You will make me pillar in the temple of My God, and I shall go out no more. Here I am to work with you in the Father’s kingdom. May my prayer be set before You as incense, The lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.
