Wednesday: God’s Preparation
Heavenly Father go before me today. Prepare my heart and mind for all I will see and hear and experience. Open my eyes and ears to take in the presentations, the information, the new ideas You want me to assimilate. Help me make connections with those who can help me and who I can help in this writing journey.
Prepare me to receive Your revelation, direction, instruction allowing me to think outside the box I may have created for Your purpose for this time in my life.
Let me lay down any attitude that focuses on what I don’t know and can’t do and show me what I need to know and how it can be accomplished. Bring me role models and mentors and people to walk alongside me who will be like iron sharpening iron.
I put on the Helmet of Salvation, the Breastplate of Righteousness, the Belt of Truth, the Shoes of the Gospel of Peace. I take up the Sword of the Spirit and my Shield of Faith and link it together with the others at this conference to form a virtual wall that will protect each of us and allow us to advance against the enemy.
Thank You that You have brought me here, and prepared me for an amazing experience where I can hear from You. I make my requests and offer my thanks in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen

Thursday: God’s Purpose
Lord God, I honor You as the Creator of the universe and all that is in it! And I thank You for making me fearfully and wonderfully and uniquely. I acknowledge that You have given me gifts and talents, abilities and experiences which I desire to use to bring You glory. And as one of those is writing, I thank You for this conference, and bringing me here.
I again put on the spiritual armor You give me: the Helmet of Salvation, the Breastplate of Righteousness, the Belt of Truth, the Shoes of the Gospel of Peace and I take up my Shield of Faith and Sword of the Spirit. And I ask You to open my eyes, my ears, my mind, my heart and my spirit today to hear from the Holy Spirit about the purpose you have for the unique way You created me. In this conference, help me make connections, receive instruction, and gain Your perspective on my life and how writing fits into it.
Show me how You are already at work in my life so I can work with You. Or show me where You are already at work somewhere else, and stir my heart where You want me to join You there. Use the Keynote speakers, the Faculty instructors, whether live or recorded, Appointments, other conferees, or personal time I take for prayer and refection during the conference.
Build my faith to give me the confidence I need to trust in Your purpose, in Your timing, and in Your plan. Show me the steps I need to take to get there. Do not let me shrink back from the work I need to do. And do not let me rush ahead of You.
Conferences can be overwhelming. Help me take in just what I need to for this time, focusing on what You put right in front of me and draw my passion to. I will not compare myself or my gift to others. You have a unique purpose for me and I will embrace and rejoice in that.
The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me. Psalm 138:8 ESV Amen!
Friday: God’s Presence
Holy Spirit, thank You that you are with me all the time. Open my awareness to be able to sense Your presence with me in real and tangible ways as I move through the conference. Quiet any ungodly or negative voices – even the ones in my own mind. Help me embrace all You show me and not do anything to quench Your influence.
Once again I put on the spiritual armor of God: the Helmet of Salvation, the Breastplate of Righteousness, the Belt of Truth, the Shoes of the Gospel of Peace and I take up my Shield of Faith and Sword of the Spirit.
Let Your presence dispel any ungodly influences that are at work to undermine or discourage me. And encourage me, by renewing my strength and healing any past issues that would keep me from embracing all that You have for me now.
Help me tune in to what You are saying to me, how You are speaking to me, whether through presentations, personal interactions, prayer, worship… Give me discernment to know which sessions to attend, making note of any that are pre-recorded so I will be sure to follow up and watch those as well.
Orchestrate my meetings, chats, connections and make me aware of these “Divine Appointments” so I don’t miss anything. Thank You that no matter how I “feel,” I “know” that You are with me and will never leave me. Let that truth overcome every other emotion seeking to discourage me. I give You praise and thanks, my Lord Jesus Christ. Amen
“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God” (Isaiah 41:10a).
Saturday: God’s Power
Lord Jesus Christ, I once again put on the spiritual armor and pray with the Helmet of Salvation, the Breastplate of Righteousness, the Belt of Truth, the shoes of the Gospel of Peace, the Shield of Faith and the Sword of the Spirit providing my offense and defense. I stand and pray in the power of the blood You shed on the cross, and in Your name, the name above all names.
Heavenly Father release Your power in me to accomplish all that You have shown me and will continue to show me about Your purpose for the gifts You have given me. Empower me to be the writer You created me to be. Let Your anointing power refresh, renew, and revitalize my commitment to use this gift You have given me for Your glory!
Give me an understanding of all the things I need to know. And direct me to the people I need to reach out to and the pre-recorded sessions I need to watch to receive the instruction. Empower me to have discipline to watch those sessions, review my notes form the live sessions, and follow up on contacts I need to make to follow through on all You have shown me in directing my path.
I trust that what You have called me to do, You will equip me to do, in Your timing. Make me bold to take the next step You show me. Bring people into my life who can help me and who I can help.
Father, You have overcome the world, and Your victory is mine. The enemy may come after me, but I will keep my focus on You. You are bigger than any enemy, so I will not fear.
Let all that You have shown me in this conference and impressed on me, stay with me when the conference is over, and be a defining point in my writing, and in my life. Praising You, in the name of my Lord Jesus Christ. Amen
“No one will be able to stand against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you. Be strong and courageous” (Joshua 1:5-6).
