We’re delighted that you have joined us today in our Weekly Corporate Thursdays’ Prayer and Fasting! While the world is foolishly looking to man to deliver us, we, Your Children, in faithful obedience, look to You, JESUS, The Author and Finisher of our Faith to cause us to NOT JUS SURVIVE BUT THRIVE in the day of evil!
BECAUSE OF WHO U R, WE GIVE U GLORAAA…BCUZ OF WHO U R, WE GIVE U PRAIZ! BECAUSE OF WHO U R, I WILL LIFT MY VOICE AND SAY, LORD, I WORSHIP U, BCUZ OF WHO U R…HERE WE ARE TO WORSHIP, HERE WE ARE TO BOW DOWN, HERE WE ARE TO SAY THAT YOU’RE OUR KING! YOU’RE ALTOGETHER LOVELY, ALTOGETHER WORTHY, ALTOGETER WONDERFUL! LET’S UNITE OUR HEARTS, MINDS AND SPIRIT TO PRAY…
Father in Heaven, here we are once again! We come today with upstretched arms, open hands and grateful hearts, for this is the day that You have made! We enter into The Splendor of Your Magnificent Glory, rejoicing because we know that it’s only because of Your Unconditional Love, Grace and Mercy, that has allowed us one more day to embrace this life of righteousness, peace, love, joy and wholeness!
We’re thankful for this new opportunity to surrender ourselves completely to Your Will, as living sacrifices, holy and acceptable unto You. From our Mother’s womb, You’ve proven Yourself to be Faithful and True; therefore, we’re trusting You to provide everything that we need today to sustain us thru whatever challenges that unfold during the course of this day! Abba Father, we know that You Alone are our God, Guard and Guide!
Daddy, before we go any further, we stand humbly before Your Sovereignty asking You to forgive us for everything that we have spoken, done and even thought that was not pleasing in Your sight. Open the eyes of our understanding that we might see sin through Your eyes, acknowledge it’s evilness and quicken our spirits to not make excuses, but to immediately repent, confess with our mouths our wrongdoing! For You, Heavenly Father, have assured us that if we would confess our sins, You will Faithfully forgive us, and wash us in The Precious Blood of Jesus, cleansing us from all unrighteousness, and restoring the breach that our disobedience has caused between our poor souls and our Lord and Savior, Jesus! As we walk thru the day ahead, clear our minds so that we can hear from You and cleanse our hearts that we may deny ourselves, trust and obey Your Will.
Precious Jesus, when this world closes in on us, help us to follow our Redeemer’s example — to slip away and find a quiet place to pray. We know that prayer is our best response when we’re being pushed beyond our limits. We thank You because even when we can’t pray, You listen to our hearts and interpret every moan, groan and sigh of our wearied spirits! Father, I thank You that despite our fractures and dysfunctions , You are yet able to use us to do Your will ensuring The You Alone get The Glory!
Abba Father, continue to bless us that we may be a blessing to others. Keep us strong that we may help the weak. Keep us uplifted that we may have words of encouragement for others. We pray for those who are lost and can’t find their way. We pray for those who are misjudged and misunderstood. We pray for those who don’t know You intimately. We pray for those who don’t believe that You sent Jesus, not to condemn us, but to convict us and to free us from the power, pain and penalty of Sin!
Father, help us to not complain about things that are out of our control. Help us to recognize that faith in God not only changes people, it changes me; and only You, O God have the Power to change people and things!
Sweet Holy Spirit, we cry out to You, trusting You Omniscience, acknowledging that nothing ever happens that takes You by surprise. We ask that as Your Eyes go throughout this world, remember us! Look on the suffering throughout the lands. Look on the chaos, confusion, fearful and doubting hearts and minds of all who know You as Savior and Lord, and especially those who have not yet come into a saving knowledge of Your Awesome Grace!
We stand in the gap for our nations, praying for healing, hope, peace, unity, love and joy in our homes and communities. We believing that Your Divine Favor is being poured out upon everyone now as their faith is rising to a level that we will all be faithful and obedient to live everyday as You have commanded. We’re praying that You are releasing supernatural abundance in every area of our lives, as we have committed to put You first, all everything we need is met. In Jesus Name!
Father, we’re lifting up our children, our children’s children by faith, as many of them are struggling even as the adults to adjust to the new normal in our lives! We pray that You infuse their hearts with a desire to seek You for the wisdom and understanding that inspires confidence and assurance that they are not forgotten! Let them know that You love them and that You have created them with Purpose and a Plan that shall be fulfilled in their lives. Lord, remember the young adults as they prepare to further their education or have entered into the workforce, encourage their hearts, restore hope for their future! As we’re committing them to Your care, we have the blessed assurance that their steps and stops are being Divinely orchestrated by Your eyes!
Abba, we know that You have instructed us, not to be distracted by the temporary things but to look to the eternal, yet You know the frailness of our flesh, and how easily we’re provoked and tempted to lose focus and become overwhelmed by the cares of this world causing us to spend our days beneath clouds of evil foreboding and disrupting our peaceful nites plagued with restlessness, despondency and hopelessness! You already know whose hearts are burdened with the pressures of this life, wearied with fear, doubt, unbelief, sickness and disease, financial debt, broken relationships, unprovoked threats, depression, addictions, insecurities and grief! You know the widows, the vulnerable and the downcast who have born the heat of the day; those who pushed and prayed us through! Lord, lift them, reward them by giving them sweet Peace!
Lord, keep us and strengthen as only You can!
Lord, save, heal and deliver speedily all who are crying out to you, seeking Your Face at this very moment! Give us to know that because we belong to You, we are never too far that You can’t see us, reach us, comfort, shield and protect us from anything that the devil would rail against us. Help us to understand that Your Name, Jesus is a Strong Tower, and those that run into it and are saved!
Father, because the our steps are being ordered by You, You have committed Your Word towards us, no weapon that’s formed against us shall ever prosper and no trouble, test, trial, plague or pestilence can come near our dwelling, except You have allowed it to train us to live each day solely depending and relying on You.
Help us, Holy Spirit, to remember that You have sworn by Yourself to be with us Always! As we go thru this present affliction, remind us that this is not our first time experiencing unexpected traumatic disruptions, but thru the good and the bad, the dark days and sleeplessness nights You have been Faithful! You stayed right there by our sides, letting us know that You Love and Care for us! Remind us that every time You put us on the wheel it is to mold, make and shape us into Your Will. Help us to not let our hearts be discouraged because Your Ways are higher than ours, Your thoughts are beyond our finite comprehension and that You are always leading and guiding our steeps, assuring safe passage from glory to Glory!
We thank Holy Spirit, for fully persuading us of Your Providential Presence and Power to turn everything around to work in our favor and to bring about exuberant testimonies and praises of Your Eternal Magnificence, Honor and Glory!
Heavenly Father, we thank You for listening to the hearts of everyone praying with us. We thank You for piercing the hearts of those who have never accepted Your Son Jesus as their personal Savior and Lord! We are thankful that Holy Spirit is quickening that stony heart now freeing them come humbled by Your Lovingkindness, confessing a “SINCERE YES’ erupting from obedient hearts to Your call, now receiving Your Mercy and Grace to Save. We Thank You that when the threat of this worldwide pandemic comes to a close, You shall lead and guide them to a local church and plant them in Your Vineyard, where they shall be taught and transformed by Your Word of Life to take their position in The Kingdom of Heaven.
We pray for all those who have walked away from You! Father, we ask that they be arrested in The Holy Ghost and convicted to declare a “committed YES” to Your Purpose for their lives, because You Alone are The Hope of This Life and The Life to come! Let today be the day that they come back to You and come back to YOUR church where they will submit their lives to the sound teachings of Your Word, and learn to love and live their lives walking to please You First!
Heavenly Father, as You have instructed us, we pray for the leaders of our nation, corporate, judicial, education, financial, healthcare institutions and essential public service employees! We’re asking that You touch the corrupted and deceitful minds and hearts, speak to them in dreams and visions letting them know that You Who Sit Enthroned Above the Heavens are keeping record of the deeds of every man’s heart and will reward accordingly! We ask You to open their minds and hearts to hear and obey Your Will! Lord Jesus, we’re standing on Your Word as decreed that The government of this world shall rest upon Your shoulders and that You are The Eternal King of Kings and Lord of Lords!
Abba, we lift up every Bishop, Pastor, Overseer, Apostle, Evangelist, Preacher and Teacher. Undergird them with Your Anointing and conviction to carry out their assignment, under the direction of Holy Spirit. Cover them as they go in and out amongst Your people and rebuke every spirit who seeks to discredit, hinder and even destroy their faith, faithfulness and ministry! Encourage their hearts and minds with the confidence that when this storm is over, they shall come thru better than they were when they went in! In Jesus Name! AMEN 3X!
Lord, I pray for every believer who is struggling in their faith to hold on to Your Hand while reconciling the cruel reality of death, grief, sorrow, loss, isolation and loneliness! We’re asking You for a Divine Intervention of Your Supernatural Power, Strength, Health, Encouragement, Provision, Prosperity and Protection! Keep us constantly aware of YOUR PRESENCE and fully confident that Christ in Us Is The Hope of Glorraa! Father we declare and decree that because we are more than conquers, every demonic-induced spirit of fear is defeated NOW! We decree and declare, because of Your Yoke Destroying, Burden Bearing Anointing, that the Spirit of Love, Power a Sound-mind and Purpose is being released into the lives of Your people now, in Jesus Name!
Lord, while there are so many other things that we have yet to mention, we’re trusting that You are not just able, but You’re willing to do anything that we ask, according to You Perfect Will. We’re decreeing and believing You to fix it, Jesus, as only You can, in Jesus Name!
Abba Father, we wait in confidence and quietness, rejoicing in hope and trusting wholly that You have heard the voice of our weeping, our supplications and received our prayer as a sweet savor coming up before Your Sovereign Throne of Grace and Mercy! Father, we thank You and seal this Prayer In The Holy Ghost, for WE KNOW THAT IT IS DONE! In The Exalted Name of Jesus. Amen 3X
Now every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, GO TELL SOMEBODY THAT JESUS LOVES AND CARES ABOUT U2!
Pause, Ponder, Pray & Praiz!
