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 so grateful to Jesus, Our Great High Priest, 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, we come once again humbly before You exalting 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 that You have chosen us 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 in 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 everything that pertains to life and godliness is already 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!
Father, we thank You for Your Faithful Compassion and Great Mercy towards us that allows You to look beyond our flawed, frail and fickle flesh that causes us to say, think and do those things which are not pleasing in Your sight! We are so thankful for Your Promise 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!
Father, because no man can come to You except You draw him, we lift our brothers and sisters who yet do not know You in the pardon of their sin! We ask that You break up the fallow ground of their self-willed hearts and 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 us and restore, we lift up the backslider who has been lured outside of The Ark of Covenant Grace, touch their hearts and minds, flood their souls with a spirit of repentance that draws them back into Your Loving Arms; assure them that You are ready, willing and able to restore them to 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!
Sometimes, our hearts and minds are overwhelmed with so much doubt, anxiety and uncertainty that we lose or focus! Lord, You know, the effect that this society, steeped in the stench of swampy lawlessness, corruption and blatant immorality has on us! We ask that You help us to endure the things that are going on around us! Lord, while You never promised us that we would have trial-free lives in this earth, help us to endure these last and evil days! Give us confident hope-filled expectation that Your eyes are on the Righteous, You are a Very Present Help in trouble and that while weeping may endure for a night, Joy shall come in the morning!
Precious Omnipresent, Omniscient, Omnipotent Lord, knowing that You never intended us to meander through this life alone but to live solely dependent upon You, we come now asking You to save us, help us, lead and guide us, strengthen and uphold us as we seek to live our lives representing You, The Light of The World, before this dark, lost and un-regenerated anti-Christ culture!
You know the lawlessness that’s so prevalent in our nation and our world today and how we’re so easily tempted to give up as if we have no hope for things getting better in the future. Help us to walk by faith and not by sight! Help us to remember that Your Word Shall Reign Forever and that every Promise You have spoken is YEA AND AMEN, THEREFORE SHALL COME TO PASS! Help us to remember that You, Jehovah HAVE THE FINAL SAY! Help us to know that nothing happens in the earth that can or will ever take You by surprise. Give us the confidence that You, Who sits upon the circle of the earth, neither sleeps nor slumber and SHALL NEVER RELINQUISH YOUR POSITION, POWER OR CONTROL to THE WILL OF ANY MERE MORTAL MAN!
Encourage our hearts to acknowledge that when it seems as if this world is upside down, that at Your appointed time You SHALL intervene by Your POWER and turn EVERYTHING RIGHT-SIDE UP! As Your Servant David wrote, ‘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 pray for those who are in contentious situations in this land, in our churches, our homes, communities. We bind the Spirit of exclusion and release The Spirit of Oneness! We thank You Father for the empowering Spirit of Agreement! We pray for all those who are arrogant, selfish, self-aggrandizing and ask that You reveal Yourself to them; reverse the hatred and bigotry in this country and replace it with LOVE AND THE MIND OF CHRIST! We promise that we will forever give You The Honor and Praise!
We trust that despite of what it looks like, NO WEAPON THAT’S FORMED AGAINST US SHALL PROSPER, AND EVERY TONGUE THAT RISES UP AGAINST US SHALL BE CONDEMNED! At Your Command, every stronghold that the adversary has planned to use against us is uprooted and demolished NOW; IN JESUS NAME! EVERY SPIRIT OF SICKNESS, PHYSICAL, MENTAL AND SPIRITUAL, IS REBUKED AND CAST DOWN NOW, IN JESUS NAME! 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 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 THIS ATROCIOUS ACTIONS, IN THE MAJESTIC NAME OF JESUS!
Abba Father, as we near the closing of our prayers, we’re careful to mention those who are shut-in, hospitalized, incarcerated, going through chemotherapy and radiation, dialysis treatments; those awaiting organ transplants! We lift them up before 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, poverty, unbelief, unforgiveness, doubt, anxiety, stress, mental disorders, hopelessness, shame, guilt, suicide, disappointment, rejection, ungodly soul ties and perverted sexual orientations!
Father as we wait in confidence and quietness, we’re rejoicing in hope and trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling and suddenly departing in fear and shame and defeat, turning their backs from Your people, 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!
