THURSDAYS’ PRAYERS!

PRAYN AND FASTING PIC

 

GOOD MORNING FAM! GOTTA MOMENT? AAAWWWEEEMAAZING?

Thank you for joining with us 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  these 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 hearts and minds, flood 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. At the appropriate hour, 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!

Lord, You already 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, we ask that You 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 everyday 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, we ask You to 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 and 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 are STILL SEATED ABOVE the circle of the earth, and You never sleep and will NEVER RELINQUISH YOUR POSITION, POWER OR CONTROL to THE WILL OF ANY MERE MORTALS!  

Sweet Holy Spirit, continue to encourage our hearts that we 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! Instill in our hearts and minds the words of Your Servant David, ‘though we walk through the valley of the shadows of death, we  shall fear no evil, for Thou are with us! Because, You have sworn by GODSELF, TO NEVER LEAVE NOR FORSAKE US!

Look on those in contentious situations and help us to pray for the arrogant, selfish, self-aggrandizing and as You reveal Yourself to them; reverse the hatred and bigotry in this country and replace it with a GODLY FEAR, LOVE AND THE MIND OF CHRIST!  We promise that we will forever give You The Honor and Praise!

We DECREE AND DECLARE THAT 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 BELIEVE THAT EVEN AS WE’RE PRAYING YOU HAVE COMMANDED PEACE TO BE STILL AND THE WINDS FROM THE NORTH, SOUTH, EAST AND WEST TO BLOW COVID-19 OUT OF OUR ATMOSPHERE! AND WE BELIEVE THAT YOU ARE RELEASING SECRET THINGS TO THE SCIENTIST AND PHYSICIANS ENABLING THEM TO DEVELOP SAFE VACCINES THAT WILL CURE ALL MANNER OF SICKNESSES AND DISEASES. We ask that You protect those essential workers on the frontline during this Pandemic. Cover them as they go out and come in. Shield them from dangers see and unseen that no weapon that’s formed against them and their families shall prosper! 

We lift up the pastors and Church leaders who are yet standing on the wall, preaching The Gospel of The Kingdom. We pray for strength, encouragement, wisdom and guidance as they endeavor o stay connected to their congregants. We pray that every financial need is fully supplied to maintain the sanctuaries until the people are allowed to safely return to the buildings, in Jesus Name!

WE BELIEVE THAT YOU ARE RELEASING DIVINE HEALTH, PROSPERITY AND INCREASE INTO THE LIVES OF THOSE WHO CONFESS THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST AS LORD! WE SPEAK RESTORATION OF MARRIAGES, FAMILIES 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!

BY THE POWER OF HOLY SPIRIT IN US, 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 THAT YOU WILL EXTRACT  DIVINE JUSTICE AND APPROPRIATE 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, depression and other mental disorders, hopelessness, shame, guilt, suicide, disappointment, rejection, ungodly soul ties and perverted sexual orientations! 

Precious Lord, remember our children, grands and great grands, our young adults, our relatives, friends, neighbors and all those who have been indoctrinated by this ungodly society to believe that You are not necessary to achieve what this world calls success. Touch their minds, prick their hearts with a passion to know You and serve You in SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH! Father, help us to remember that You’ve Promised that the earth would never be without a WITNESS TO YOUR GLORY!

Father as we wait in confidence and quietness, we YET rejoice in Everlasting Hope , trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling and suddenly departing in fear and shame and defeat, 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 who 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 ALLELUJAH and AMEN 3X !

SELAH!

THE TRUTHFUL HEART!

MORNING GLORAAA

 

ETERNAL TRUTHS!

 

Little children, let no man deceive you; he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous…He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. 1 John 3:7-8 

My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue, but in deed and in truth. And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him. For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things.  Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God. 1 John 3:18-21 

 

According to Jeremiah 17:9, “The heart of a man is desperately wicked”, and asks and answers the question, “Who can know the heart, BUT GOD’! Nevertheless, The Word goes on to say that a man’s behavior is a measure of one’s spiritual status.  If a man’s ways consistently defy the righteousness of The Holy Redeemer, one may safely presume that they have  not yet FULLY ascribed to a personal Covenant-relationship with The True and Living God! 

And every man that hath this hope in Him purifieth himself, even as He is pure. 1 John 3:3

Nah, don’t get it twisted!  Obviously The Apostle is NOT saying that believer’s are no longer capable of sin! However, by The Grace of God, when we fall short of God’s Standards of Kingdom Protocol (as we all do) a genuine Christian does not continue to sin with no remorse! But will repent quickly, asks and receives God’s forgiveness, assuring that there’s no residual condemnation lingering in his heart that would prevent him from dwelling in The Presence of The Almighty Creator and Sustainer of Life! Remember, God’s LOVE IS ETERAL AND HIS MERCY lasts longer than our Accuser’s threats!

TRUTHBTOLD, as Christians, the love that we SHOW for GOD and for one another (which is not necessarily what we might SAY), is a clear indication that we belong to Truth! In other words, our outward action reflects the inward reality and status of our personal relationship with God!  #Don’tshoutmedownnah!

#WOW! With THAT being said, our daily prayer should include, “Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. ” Psalm 51:10

TRUST2KNO, IT’S ALL A MATTER OF A TRUTHFUL HEART!

SELAH!

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you. For I am the Lord your God, The Holy One of Israel, your Savior; I gave Egypt for your ransom, Ethiopia and Seba in your place. Since you were precious in My sight, You have been honored, And I have loved you; Therefore I will give men for you, And people for your life. Fear not, for I am with you. Isaiah 43:2-4

Time is hurling towards Eternity at the speed of life! And sometimes, life comes at you hard, fast and furious, huh?.

SUFFER RIGHT?

MORNING GLORAAA

 

ETERNAL TRUTHS!

 
 
Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin; 2 so as to live for the rest of the time in the flesh no longer for human passions but for the will of God. 1 Peter 4:1-2
 
16 Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.
 
17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?
 
18 And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? 1 Peter 4:16-19 KJV
 
19 Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.
 
 
 
Since Christ suffered and underwent pain, you must have the same attitude he did; you must be ready to suffer, too. For remember, when your body suffers, sin loses its power, 2 and you won’t be spending the rest of your life chasing after evil desires but will be anxious to do the will of God. 1 Peter 4:1-2
 
16 But it is no shame to suffer for being a Christian. Praise God for the privilege of being in Christ’s family and being called by his wonderful name! 17 For the time has come for judgment, and it must begin first among God’s own children. And if even we who are Christians must be judged, what terrible fate awaits those who have never believed in the Lord? 18 If the righteous are barely saved, what chance will the godless have?
 
19 So if you are suffering according to God’s will, keep on doing what is right and trust yourself to the God who made you, for he will never fail you. 1 Peter 4:16-19 TLB
 
 
OK, HONESTLY! TRUTH IS SOBERING, IF U WILL ALLOW IT TO PENETRATE THE VEIL OF YOUR PERSONAL DESIRES OR OPINIONS!
Perhaps that’s why the Holy Writ commands (NOT SUGGESTS) us to “Study to shew thyself approved UNTO GOD, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, RIGHTLY dividing the word of truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15
 
Pardon my deflection! Nevertheless, even as I’m being processed , in my seasoned years IN CHRIST, I am still recognizing that you need a WHOLE LOTTA JESUS N U to apply HIS WORD 2 daily life! ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO THAT SUFFERING PART OF SALVATION, huh?
 
BUT, THANKSB2GOD! HE’S SO PATIENT WITH HIS MERCY TOWARDS US AND HAS PROMISED “being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” Philippians 1:6
 
DON’T GET IT TWISTED!  TRUST2KNO, THERE’S A DISTINCT DIFFERENCE  IN GOD’S RESPONSE…WHEN THE SUFFERING HAS BEEN INVITED IN BY OUR OWN DISOBEDIENT LUSTFUL DESIRES AND WHEN WE’RE BEING TRAINED THRU SUFFERING… IN THE WILL OF GOD! OOOHH GGLLOORRAAAAAA!

GOOD MORNING FAMILY? GOTTA MOMENT? GREAT GOD ALMIGHTY!

Once again, we’re delighted that you’ve joined us in our Corporate Thursdays’ Prayer! We bless The Lord for every opportunity He allows us to come, seeking His Face and bearing our souls before Him, trusting that He’s waiting with open arms to embrace us, shielding us from all that would attempt to dissuade us from entrusting our lives to Our Savior and Lord of all life! As we bow before Him, let’s enter into His Presence with praise and hope-filled Joy…

Heavenly Father, we come together now thanking You for  one more day! And because You have called our name up our out our slumber to a brand new day, we rejoice gratefully  that this is the day that the Lord has made, we shall be glad in it. We bless You Precious Lord Jesus, for making a Way for us to approach The Throne of Mercy with a holy boldness and confidence that You sit on The Right Side of The God Who Is, Was, and Shall Eternally Be The One True God, Creator and Sustainer of Everything!

Abba Father, as we come blessing You for that day You opened our hearts enabling us to recognize and receive the Saving Grace in the Life, Death, Burial and Resurrection of Your Son, Jesus! We acknowledge that because it pleased You, You choose us to be Your very own children, while there was absolutely nothing in us lovable nor worthy of this honor and privilege!

 

Lord Jesus, we are eternally grateful that You purposed in Your Heart and by Your Own Hand, You are The God of our Salvation, our Deliverance, Breakthrough and Provision. We’re thankful, knowing our frame, Your Faithful Compassion allows You to look beyond our human frailties, flaws and faults to forgive our iniquities,  seeing and yet You minister to every one of our need!

Lord, today we come reverently praying for all our sisters and brothers. We ask that The Spirit of Peace fill our hearts and our homes with peace, love, hope, joy, patience with contentment as we lean and depend upon Your Lovingkindness and Tender Mercy to sustain us during this worldwide pandemic! Father, we ask You to Console us even as we struggle to persevere through this unusual season of  unsettling uncertainty! Help us to remember that  ABSOLUTELY nothing happens except You have equipped us to endure the test, trials and trauma. Help us to remember that there’s a pre-ordained Benediction as well as an Invocation to all of our troubles and because You are Alpha and Omega, WEEPING MAY ENDURE FOR A NITE, BUT JOY SHALL COME IN THE MORNING! THEREFORE, WE HAVE THE BLESSED ASSURANCE THAT THIS TOO SHALL PASS!

 

Father, as You’re seated, watching over the circle of Earth,  we ask You to touch our brother, touch our Sister whose body has been afflicted by  all manner of sickness and disease! Remember those whose lives have been ravaged by COVID-19,  the spirit of cancer, high/low blood pressure, heart disease, kidney, lung failure, satanically induced depression/oppression/addictions and rebuke and cast it out at the root, for Your Name Sake. Lord, we’re standing on Your Word  that declares that by Your stripes  we have been redeemed and healed us! Therefore, even as You have promised, we declare and decree that the prayer of faith shall save the sick and raise them up, In Jesus Name!

Lord, we pray for every believer who is yet struggling to hold on to Your Hand by faith today, believing hat You are releasing  Your Divine Presence, Favor and Supernatural Strength enabling us to not lean to our own understanding but to trust in You with all of our hearts, spirits, mind and soul

Sweet Holy Spirit, as we look away from this world and up to You,  casting all of our care upon our Great High Priest, knowing He Cares, we come giving You Glory for all that You have done, for all that You have given us for it was nobody but You who has kept us even from our Mother’s Womb to this very moment!  And for this cause, we cry out Thankya!

By faith in Your Holy Name, Lord Jesus, we bind and cancel the assignment of every mind-manipulating demon, declaring that The Blood of Jesus is covering the hearts and minds of all those Who Name The Name of Christ!  We bind and destroy the yoke of every spirit of fear, anxiety, stress, worry, weariness, discouragement and hopelessness! In Jesus Name!

By faith in The Sovereignty of Your Eternal Word, we loose the Peace of God and The Miraculous Power of God over our individual lives and The Corporate Body of Christ. We loose the Convicting, Delivering Power of God to transform our lives, heal sicknesses and life’s dis-eases, restore prosperity and replenish wholeness in the spiritual, physical, mental, emotional and financial areas of our being. revive and renew our first love, restore our zeal, hunger and thirst for righteousness!  

In The Name of Jesus, we rebuke and cast down spirits of pride, carnality, ungratefulness, murmuring and complaining, demons of rejection, bitterness and resentment, we come against spirits of contention, covet nous, guilt, shame,  self-rejection, self-despising self-condemnation spirits, we call out and cut off every satanic stronghold of grief and paralyzing sorrow,  every unauthorized  spirit of depression, oppression, perversion and addiction!

Father, In Jesus Name, we ask that You release wisdom and discernment, humility, gratitude, courage, strength, faith, hope, love and self-discipline!  We ask Holy Spirit to search us, to see and reveal to us every secret thing that lies dormant waiting to distract, hinder and prevent us from possessing and fulfilling Your Thoughts and Intents for our lives.

Abba Father, we lift up our political, social, judicial, business, religious leaders, asking a special blessing upon each one! We pray that You will Grace them to be the examples in their homes, marketplace and churches that will cause those who are in their sphere of influence to love, trust and to live their lives serving You, Our Heavenly Father.

Lord, we pray as You have commanded in Your Holy Word, for all our enemies, and those who have used and abused me, and have lifted up their hands and their tongue against me. I now forgive them for all they have done. In Jesus Name, for I am a Child of God.

Father, we pray for every heart that’s reading this prayer, that they come to know that there is no problem, no circumstance, no situation that is greater than God, for God is greater than all, God is greater in all, God is greater through all, and God is greater upon all. For You God, are the Most High God Almighty of all the Universes is truly the Greatest of All.

Father, we are so grateful that as we continue to walk closely with You, we understand that every battle that we have and will ever encounter in our lives is always in the absolute control of Your Loving hands, for You, O Lord have Sovereignly Ordained everything to work together for my highest good and Your Greater Glory!

We pray for every one who has for whatever reason walked away from You shall be arrested and provoked by the anointing that is on this prayer, to come back to You today and that You have put a new ‘YES LORD’ in their hearts and a willful obedience in their spirit to live the rest of their lives faithful and committed to Your WILL (WORD) and WAYS!

Father God we ask that anyone reading this prayer, wondering why they even find themselves reading it, will bow their hearts toward You now, confessing their need for You in their lives! And as they humbly acknowledge their sin, You will release Your Amazing Love towards them. We believe that in appreciation they  will invite The Lord Jesus Christ to come into their life and change their heart now!  We believe that as they are thanking You Father, they are confessing that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God, their personal Savior, Lord , and Everlasting King! \

Lord Jesus, we know that there’s much more we could’ve, should’ve said but we know that because You are able to discern the intents of our hearts, we pray believing,  expecting, receiving and accepting God’s miracles in our lives this day and every day, for God’s Divine favor is now our heritage,

Holy Spirit, in closing, we ask You to intervene on our behalf, as we offer up this prayer!  Help us!  Rescue and Deliver us! Move on every heart that’s standing in agreement with us. Tear down every high thing and bring every contrary thought into  the obedience of Christ!  Send Your Anointing and let Your Will be done, let Your Plan be accomplished, in Jesus Name. Amen 3x!

It is done! Alleluia!

SELAH DAILY DEVOTIONS!

 

Good Morning Family! GOTTA MOMENT? AWEMAAZIN!

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!

AN ANEMIC CHURCH??

AN ANEMIC CHURCH 2

He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the Kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His Blood, the forgiveness of sins. Colossians 1:13-14

 

Recently, I’ve come into contact with several people who undergo Dialysis treatment due to severe kidney failure. I am certainly not an expert in these matters, so humor me in my attempt to describe, in my acutely limited understanding, how dialysis works. Okay, here goes?

Apparently, the dialysis process involves draining the blood from the patient’s body thru a machine which filters out the impurities in the blood system and returns the clean blood back into the body. The number of the times the patient visits the dialysis center weekly varies according to the level of kidney dysfunction of the individual. While the benefits outweigh the risks of this procedure, there are potentially critical consequences of this process. One being anemia. One of the markers that the physician looks at to determine the stage of anemia is the ratio of white blood cells to red blood cells.

Prayerfully, none of you will ever suffer through anything like this, in the natural; yet it prompted me to look at its similarities spiritually. It’s becoming profoundly evident that The New millennium church is suffering from a severe case of spiritual anemic. Somewhere along the way, there has been a gradual drifting away and a markedly diminishing of the revelation, significance and the Power of The BLOOD of JESUS CHRIST!

Consequently, the 21st Century Church is in dire need of a blood transfusion. The problem is most of the time this dis-ease goes virtually unnoticed and undiagnosed until we find ourselves sprawled out on a gurney in the ER (the Altar) depleted physically, emotionally, financially, relationally scrapped and spiritually bankrupt. #DON’TSHOUTMEDOWN, nah?

Oh yeah, some of us have become quite adept at putting on our ‘church-game-face’ and can actually manage to press on, for a good while, conquering one hurdle after another before draining all our strength. But inevitably, we get to that place where we’ve no other option but to come clean. ‘That’s it…I’m through…Kapoop…there’s absolute nothing left…I’ve tried to stop lying and cussin’, drinking and dopin’… I tried to handle this adulterous relationship…I’ve done all I can think of to keep this house/business/church afloat, keep these kids from going to jail…but now …I’m at my wits end.” 

And… That’s when we turn to Jesus, the True Source of All Strength and Power…The Master Physician!

You see the problem is, God never intended us to do it (LIFE) alone! That’s why He sent Jesus to restore the connection severed by Adam’s rebellion. The Blood of God’s Sacrificial Lamb flows from The Righteous to the unrighteous.  Fortunately, IF applied daily to our hearts, minds, our will through prayer and study of His Word, filtering into every area of our lives, we are fortified and SANCTIFIED HOLY and ACCEPTABLE 2 GOD!

TRUST2KNO, the transforming Blood of Jesus purifies our sin-consciousness and empowers us to overcome all of this life’s maladies, replenishing  A WELL SPRING OF HOPE AND HEALING to an anemic church OVERFLOWING onto a lost and unholy world. 

THAT’S THE GOSPEL! NEED A BLOOD TRANSFUSION? #hookmeupLORD

Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. Matthew 11:28-30

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. John 10:10

Being next to the oldest of seven kids, I can’t remember exactly when the desire for personal playmates sprouted. Perhaps, that’s why my social skills were noticeably under-developed when it came to fitting in with ‘other than sibling’ cliques. I guess you’d call that shyness, huh? Needless to say, I was generally the least likely to be picked first in just…

HE REMEMBERS!

HE REMEMBERS2

Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid, for YAH, the Lord, is my strength and song; He also has become my salvation. Therefore with joy you will draw water From the wells of salvation. Isaiah 12:2-3

Behold, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me. Isa. 49:16

 

In light of  prevailing  gross darkness, devastation and desolation surrounding  our world today, it’s not uncommon that every now and then, even those of us who’ve been walkin’ with Jesus a long time,  may be tempted to conclude, ‘Why even bother to hope, after all what’s the point”?  #Don’tshoutmedown, nah! Nonetheless! Instead of giving in to to despair, I was incited to review the words of God’s Prophet, Isaiah, speaking to the remnant of God’s Chosen nation.

While 21st Centry millennials are quick to refute the antiquated teachings of times long past as irrelevant, TRUTHBTOLD, the more things change, the more they stay the same! In other words, “THERE’S REALLY NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN!”

Now these things happened to them as an example, but they were written down for our instruction, on whom the end of the ages has come. 1 Corinthians 10:11

God’s people were facing eminent danger of massive destruction, yet we hear Isaiah offering a word of warning and a ray of hope that we’d do well to glean from today. 

The Prophet encourages them that no matter what’s happening around you, don’t be afraid, but keep trusting and praising our God!  Isaiah, knowing God inhabits the praises of His people, speaks to souls wearied by the consequences of unwise choices and those who are forced to endure circumstances which are beyond their ability to control, reminding them that their only hope of deliverance was to remain steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of their Lord! (Ref. 1 Corinthians 15:58)

REMEMBER! God is Holy, Righteous and Just! While He must punish the unjust, His Anger does not last forever! Unlike many of our earthly fathers, YAH is our Covenant-KEEPING God and remains a Faithful Father, The Saving Strength, Shield, Provider and Redeemer to all who call upon Him! From His own Mouth, Abba Father promises to wipe away the tears from their faces and keep you in perfect peace because we trust in Him! (Ref. Isaiah 25:8, 26:3-4)

#DIDJAHEARDAT?

Beloved, when life is out of your control, rest assured, THERE’S NOT ONE MOMENT WHEN GOD IS NOT!  Our Omnipresent, Omniscient, Omnipotent Creator and Sustain of All Live IS ALWAYS IN ABSOLUTE CONTROL!

The Eternal Word IS FOREVER SETTLED IN HEAVEN! Jesus Himself testifies that you are the apple of His eye and He has tatooed your name in the palm of His Hands forever. (Ref. Psalm 17:8; Isa. 49:16)

In the midst of these unsettling times of uncertainties,  there’s no denying the myriad of  available distractions designed to cause even the most seasoned of saints to question whether or not The Sovereign Creator and Sustainer of All Life is REALLY concerned about what’s going on down here amongst the gross darkness of  this lost, unfaithful and rebellious world! Nevertheless, I adjure you to keep your eyes on Jesus, The Joy of your Salvation and your feet steadfast on THE WORD!

 

Be confident of this very thing, HE THAT HAS BEGUN A GOOD WORK IN YOU IS FAITHFUL TO COMPLETE IT UNTIL THE DAY OF JESUS CHRIST! (Ref. Philippians 1:6)

Precious ones, when you can’t see no way, why not confuse hell and praiz JESUS ANYHOW! Don’tchakno? At the mere mentioning of THE NAME OF JESUS demons tremble and the Heaven’s Angelic host is put on alert!

Ooooh Yeah!  TRUST2KNO, The Great and Holy One of Israel is closer than ever before! Hence, don’t ever forget that YOUR GOD REMEMBERS!

So then, those who suffer according to God’s will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good. 1 Peter 4:19

And the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will Himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. To Him be the power for ever and ever. Amen 1 Peter 5:10-11
‘He’s got the whole world, in His Hands! He’s got the whole wide world, in His Hands! He’s got the whole world, in His Hands! He got the whole world in His Hands!’

 

WOW! I’m good with that; for about the first 22 seconds of consciousness! Then I realize that I’m awake! Opening my eyes, immediately hell’s hounds pounce onto my thoughts filling them with the residue of yesterday’s drama, failures, guilt, shame; which gives way to loneliness, despair, taunting fears and ravaging accusations! Puff! There goes my  joy, hope and confidence.  Oh, don’t get your knickers twisted! I’m talking about me, yall!!!

Oh Yeah! It’s easy to quote the scriptures and sing the songs when life is beautiful, all is well, the air is filled with the sweetness of His Wonder Working Power. The problem is, life is not always bliss because we’re still living in a fallen world! I don’t care how long you’ve been walking in da way, trusting God in times of tests and tragedy is trying, huh?

One of the most difficult things I’ve ever been asked to do, is absolutely nothing! It’s kinda like asking your child to sit for five minutes without saying a single word? Obviously, stillness is not one of our more dominating genetic traits.

Particularly, when it comes to waiting on God’s answer in what we perceive as  ‘time-sensitive’ issues. Unfortunately, the art of stillness doesn’t always get better with age. Quiet as it’s kept, even the more seasoned of saints find ourselves boppin up and down in a faith dance every now and then. Oh, we start off fired-up, after all ‘We know God is able to do all things’. That is, until He doesn’t do what we’re expecting—when we expect it!

What happens after you’ve been faithful to follow (as best as you can) all that God has required of us, and yet find yourself backed up against a stonewall, surrounded by situations that are hell bent on taking you out? What can you do when the realities of your circumstances collide with His Promises and the suffering and the pain are screaming ‘this will never end’Apparently, the only thing God expects any of us to do is trust Him to be God!

Seriously? Absolutely! The same God who created the entire world, faithfully ordered, maintained and sustained everything since it’s beginning, is He not also capable of taking care of anything that’s happening in your lifeDuuhhhh! The last time you breathed, ought to tell you God’s Still Reigns, huh?

However, He’s such a gentle Savior! He never forces Himself into situations uninvited. However, the moment we let IT goreleasing and casting the care of the circumstances into His Almighty Hands, entrusting Him to make everything work together for our greatest good and His Highest Glory, His Incomprehensible Peace comes in; flooding our hearts, overwhelming the burdens of fear, doubt, anxiety and hopelessness!

As we acknowledge The Inseparable richness of His Lovingkindness and Compassion towards us, suddenly, His Amazing Grace begins to restore quiet rest and earnest expectations to our po-wearied soul!

BE still, and know that I AM GOD; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth! Psalm 46:10

I know, feels strange, huh? I’m not saying it’s easy, but I’m a living witness,  IT IS POSSIBLE! Hey, don’t knock it until you try it!

QUESS WHAT? IF U NEED HELP, GOD has a way of forcing us to take a few days off, from running our world, huh?  #IJS !!!

SO #WHATRUSUPPOSED2DO? Pray and wait for God’s answer! HENCE, LET GOD BE GOD 2 & 4 U!

SELAH!
