SELAH Daily Devotions!
GOOD MORNING FAM! GOTTA MOMENT? AAAWWWEEEMAAZING?
Thank you for joining us once again in our Weekly Thursdays’ Corporate Prayer and Fasting! We’re grateful to Jesus, Our Lord and King, for every opportunity to come before His Throne, casting our cares at His Feet, recognizing that He’s willing and able to perfect everything that concerns us and to pour His Grace and Mercy upon our souls, freeing us from fear, doubt and anxiety, enabling us to live peacefully even in the midst of trying times! Let’s enter into His Presence with praiz…
WHEN I COME INTO HIS PRESENCE, I HUMBLE MYSELF! LIFT UP BOTH MY HANDS, AND I BEGIN TO WORSHIP HIM! I WORSHIP HIM, FOR ALL THAT HE HAS DONE FOR ME; REDEEMED AND SET ME FREE! AND BECAUSE, JUS BCUZ…HE IS LORD! LET’S PRAY…
ABBA FATHER, Who dwells above the heavens and earth, once again we come humbly before You hallowing Your Holy Name, acknowledging, there is NONE LIKE YOU! Your steadfast love, O LORD, extends to the heavens, Your faithfulness to the clouds. Your righteousness is like the mountains of God and Your judgments are like the great deep! We are eternally grateful to be called The Children of The Most High God! While we’ve done absolutely nothing to earn such honor and privilege, we bow before You, thanking You for the gift of one more day to embrace Life, Health, Peace and Joy that’s found thru our personal relationship with The Creator, Sustainer and Satisfier of every living creation.
Sweet Holy Spirit, embolden by Your Strength in the liberty that’s made available through The Precious Blood of Jesus, Our Savior and Lord, trusting wholly that while we are unable to know what is awaiting us today, we know that everything that pertains to life and godliness has already been prepared for this day, even as was provided for The Israelites as they journey through the wilderness! Therefore, we bless You, Our Good Shepherd for supplying our every need, according to Your Riches in Glory!
Precious Father, we thank You for Your Compassionate Care that allows You to look beyond the flawed, frail and fickle flesh suits that causes us to say, think and do those things which are not pleasing in Your sight and yet show us Gracious Mercy! Thank You for Promising that if we would acknowledge our sin and repent from a pure heart, You are Faithful to forgive us , cast our sin in the sea of forgetfulness, wash us in The Blood of Jesus and restore us back into right standing with You!
Sweet Holy Spirit, because no man can come to You except You draw him, we lift our brothers and sisters who do not know You in the pardon of their sin, asking that You break up the fallow ground of their self-willed hearts and rebellious minds, quicken The Spirit of Righteousness and Truth that provokes them to surrender their lives completely over to You today, and by faith confess that Jesus is The Son of God, the ONLY ACCEPTABLE SACRAFICE FOR SIN, RECEIVE HIS ATONING BLOOD AND BE BORN AGAIN INTO THE ETERNAL KINGDOM OF GOD!
Lord Jesus, because You came not to condemn but to convict and restore us, we lift up the backsliders who have been lured outside of The Ark of Covenant Grace,; touch their hearts and minds, flood their souls with a Spirit of Godly repentance that draws them back into Your Loving Arms! Assure them that You are ready, willing and able to reconcile them back into Your Family. Direct their steps to a local Church where they will be embraced with lovingkindness, nurtured and strengthened through Your Word that they may live out the rest of their lives as beacons of Light glorifying Your Power, Mercy and Grace that encourages those that they encounter to ask, “What must I do to be saved?” In Jesus Name we pray, AMEN 3X!
Precious Omniscient, Omnipotent Lord, You know everything that’s happening in the earth at this very moment, and how we struggle to walk by faith and not by sight, yet sometimes, our hearts and minds are overwhelmed with so much fear, doubt, anxiety and uncertainty that we lose or focus! Lord, You also know, that even before our lives were invaded by the COVID 19 Pandemic wreaking pain, suffering, death and destruction, many of us were already distraught by the devastating effects of a worldly society steeped in the stench of swampy lawlessness, blatant immorality and corruption in high places, systemic racism, hatred, bigotry and malicious injustices! NEVERTHELESS, knowing nothing else to do, we cry out to You for MERCY AND HELP to endure the things that are going on around us!
Lord, while You never promised us trial-free lives in this earth and even warned us of things to come, TRUTHBTOLD, many of us never expected that we’d live to see the kinds of challenges we’re facing in these last and evil day! We pray that You will fill our hearts with confident hope-filled expectation, trusting that You are a Very Present Help in trouble and that while weeping may endure for a night, Joy shall come in the morning!
Precious Lord, recognizing that You never intended us to meander through this life alone but to live solely relying and dependent upon You, trusting that ‘though we walk through the valley of the shadows of death, we fear no evil, for Thou are with us! You have sworn by GODSELF, TO NEVER LEAVE NOR FORSAKE US! We ‘re fully persuaded and assured that You, YET RULE AND REIGN OVER THE AFFAIRS OF MANKIND, YOU SHALL NEVER RELINQUISH YOUR POSITION, POWER, CONTROL or PURPOSE to THE WILL OF ANY MERE MORTAL MAN!
Abba Father, while we’re careful to lift up before You, those who are shut-in, hospitalized, incarcerated, going through chemotherapy and radiation, dialysis treatments and those awaiting organ transplants, we ask that You remember those who are stricken with grief, mourning the loss of family and friends; remember those whose lives are being tormented by fear, failure, adultery, rebellious children, unemployment, poverty, unbelief, unforgiveness, doubt, anxiety, stress, mental disorders, hopelessness, shame, guilt, suicide, disappointment, rejection, ungodly soul ties and perverted sexual orientations!
Shield the 1st Responders, the Essential Workers, Silent Sufferers, the marginalized, the downcast, outcasts, the frustrated and distressed, the depressed/oppressed, the betrayed, abandoned, lonely and those enslaved by all manner of addictions! We pray that despite of what it looks like, at Your Command, every stronghold that the adversary has planned to use against us is uprooted and demolished NOW In Jesus Name! WE PULL DOWN AND REBUKE EVERY TORMENTING SPIRIT OF PHYSICAL, MENTAL AND SPIRITUAL SICKNESS AND DIS-EASE, NOW! WE DECREE AND DECLARE THAT THE POWER OF GOD’S LOVE IS TRANSFORMING THE LIVES OF YOUR PEOPLE ALL OVER THIS WORLD!
WE THANK YOU HOLY FATHER THAT YOU HAVE NOT LEFT US TO STRUGGLE BY OURSELVES AND THAT OUR GREAT HIGH PRIEST, WHO IS SEATED AT YOUR RIGHT HAND, IS EMPATHETIC TO THE REALITIES AND FEELINGS OF OUR INFIRMITIES AND HAS BEEN CONSECRATED TO INTERCEDE ON OUR BEHALF, AS A LIVING WITNESS TO YOUR SOVEREIGN POWER OVER DEATH AND LIFE!
Abba Father, as we near the closing of our prayers, WE COMMAND PEACE BE STILL, WE RELEASE DIVINE HEALTH, PROSPERITY AND INCREASE INTO THE LIVES OF THOSE WHO CONFESS THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST AS LORD! WE SPEAK RESTORATION OF MARRIAGES AND RELATIONSHIPS! WE SPEAK DELIVERANCE FROM EVERY ADDICTION THAT WOULD DETOUR GOD’S BELOVED FROM THEIR APPOINTED DESTINY! WE SILENCE EVERY ACCUSER AND FALSE WITNESS WHO PLOTS AGAINST THE CHILDREN OF GOD!
We pray that You manifest Yourself to the ungodly, bind the Spirit of divisive exclusion, selfishness and narcissistic self-aggrandizing greed, reverse the hatred and bigotry in this country and replace it with LOVE AND THE MIND OF CHRIST! WE SPEAK EXPOSURE OF EVERY SPIRIT AND EVERYONE WHO WOULD ATTEMPT TO PERPETUATE DECEPTION, LAWLESSNESS AND PERVERT TRUTH! WE DECREE AND DECLARE IMMEDIATE RELEASE AND SAFE RETURN OF ALL VICTIMS OF HUMAN TRAFFICING AND EXACT DIVINE JUSTICE AND APPROPRITE PUNISHMENT UPON THOSE WHO SELFISHLY CAUSE THESE ATROCIOUS ACTIONS, IN THE MAJESTIC NAME OF JESUS!
Father as we wait for deliverance, in confidence and quietness, we’re rejoicing in hope and trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling and suddenly departing in fear, shame and defeat, because 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!
Finally, Abba Father, we stand in agreement with You Who hears ours prayers and forgives our transgressions, shout with everlasting joy to The One to Whom all men will come! We believe that as Your Face shines upon us, You are making Your Ways and Salvation known among all nations, for You Guide and Rule justly!
Father, we thank You NOW! In The Exalted Name of Jesus WE SAY Amen 3X and It Is So!
Pause, Ponder, Pray & Praiz!
