SLAVE 2 HOPE!

African black hands in chains on white

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations, just as it had been said to him, “So shall your offspring be.”…being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised. Romans 4:18, 21

 

Do you remember, as a child, ever being warned by your parents (supposing to avoid the pain of disappointment),“Don’t get your hopes up”? For many of us, the devil was laying a foundation for years of pessimism, doubt, unbelief, hopelessness, low self-esteem, depression and despair! WOW! Who Knu?

Ever wonder why God told us not to walk by our feelings? Well, if you’re anything like me, you’ve probably accumulated enough regrets, as a result of poor choices you’ve made listening to your fickle-feelings, to realize how irrational flesh can be, huh?

Let’s set the record straight! Sometimes, it’s difficult to ascribe a tag to feelings; feelings jus are! Directed by proper motivation, feelings are good! That’s why we need the Spirit of Discernment! Remember, when out of no where, you felt that bleep that kept on bleeping up  out of your spirit and something told you…‘don’t go that way, stop right now and turn around or call so-and-so, pray for him now?’

Unfortunately, more often than not, we’re tempted to dismiss things if it doesn’t fit within the realm of our logic. Kinda like Moses’ first response to the burning bush! Yet, something pricked his curiosity to closely investigate and ultimately leading him into a personal encounter with The Supernatural Almighty God!

Abram over-ruling emotions and human reasoning, choosing to consider not what he could see (circumstantial evidence) but rather believed and reached for what was not seen! That was faith, yall!

Now, the world looks at this and calls it foolishness, weakness and denial! However, the scriptures reveal that Abram was clearly aware that except by Divine Intervention, it was impossible for a 100 year old man and a 90 year old woman to conceive and birth a child! Because God does nothing in the earth until He gets a man to come into agreement with Him, have you ever wondered what if Abram and Sarai had continued to jus laugh off the promised as an impossible pipe-dream, if perhaps…???

No doubt over the next 25 loonnng years, Abram faced many demonic challenges tempting him to give up his hope of  living to see the manifestation of such a miraculous feat. Yet, against all hope, Abraham hope on! Oooh Glorraa2GAWD! God testified that because Abram believed that His God had the power to shift nature and call those things that be not as though they were, Abraham received the Promise and thus became the Father of our faith!

Howeverrr, how often have we insisted upon ignoring that still small voice of conscience to satisfy feelings of our own lusting, self-centered emotions driven by fear of ‘What if and What’s in it for me’? Even if it means forfeiting our Hope and God’s Peace?  OMG! The next time, perhaps we need to re-think before we act on them, huh? #ijs

Beloved, HONESTLY! This walk of faith that GOD EXPECTS is NOT REALLY all that unreasonable when your HOPE is firmly rooted and ground in Jesus Alone, consistently trusting, wholly relying upon HIS Supernatural Grace 2 strengthened us 2 walk out our faith, looking unto JESUS, obeying HIS teachings and patiently awaiting HIM 2 fulfill every Promise that HE has ever spoken over our lives! #Didjaheardat? SLAVE2HOPE!

SELAH Daily Devotions!

GM FAM! GOTTA MOMENT? AWEMAZING!

Once again, we are exceedingly grateful that you’re joining us in our weekly Thursdays’ Corporate Prayer and Fasting! We appreciate every opportunity and privilege extended to us that we might entreat The Presence of our Great High Priest, pouring out our hearts desires, petitions and supplications with Thanksgiving. Humbled by such graciousness, we bow before Him, embracing Him in earnest expectation, confident that He Rules Forever by His Power is able to save and deliver us from any of life’s maladies we grab hold to The Horns of The Altar now to worship Him…

 

I really love The LORD! I really love The Lord! U don’t know what He’s done 4 ME…HE GAVE ME THE VICTORY! I love Him! I love Him…I REALLY LOVE MY LORD! My Precious Bros. & Sistas, AS WE’RE PRAYING, WE’RE BELIEVING AND DECREEING…

Abba Father, we yield before You once again, In the Magnificent, All Powerful Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus, rejoicing, praising and thanking You for one more opportunity to embrace and enjoy the abundance of Your Mercy, Your Grace, Your Power, Peace and Hope!

Heavenly Father, it is with unspeakable joy that we thank You for being The One True God of our Salvation, Deliverance, Breakthrough and Provision. With heartfelt humility and sincere gratitude, we acknowledge that Grace, Compassion and Faithfulness that allows You, knowing our frame, YET continuing to look beyond our human frailties, faults and iniquities and faithfully minister to all of our need even blessing us with the desires of our hearts, as You see fit, according to Your Riches in Glory! From a heart open, depending and relying only on You, we offer up precious praise! We bless You Holy Spirit for the generous outpouring of strength, wisdom, understanding and power as we reverently exalt Your Name, declaring You as our personal Savior and Lord and endeavoring to apply Your Righteous Statues to our everyday lives, seeking to please You that we may enjoy the abundant life that You predestined for us in this world and in the world to come! 

Precious Jesus, YOU ARE THE SOVEREIGN LORD, therefore are always in absolute control of all things. In light of the continuous influx of unsolicited atrocities, senseless shootings and bombings taking place all around us, the profound wickedness, arrogance, deception, selfishness and greed, collusion, conspiracy, that emboldens all types of illegal transactions and perverted injustices and racism to be perpetrated upon Your people from those who seek to abuse and misuse the power that You have given them, we lift of all those whose hearts are faint, spirits wearied and grieving hopelessly we’re praying that You bring comfort and strength, heal brokenness and restore joy! Lord, we know that regardless of our circumstances, we are yet able to rely on Your faithfulness to keep us hidden under The BLOOD of JESUS! Just as You provided Light and Provision for Your people in Goshen, You cover us under The shadow of Your Wings, safe and secure! We praise You, Heavenly Father, that even in these days of imminent terror, tragedy, chaos and destruction, we know that the safest place in this whole world is in YOUR PERFECT WILL!

Abba Father, kneeling our hearts before You, we ask You to forgive us for every sin that we have committed, willfully and unwillfully, spoken or thought that was not pleasing in Your sight and that caused grief to Holy Spirit! We believe, according to Your Promise, that as we confess our transgressions and repent from the sincerity of our hearts, that You are Faithful and Just to forgive us, remove our sins from us, casting them into the Sea of Your Selective Forgetfulness, cleanse us from all unrighteousness through The Word and the Blood of Your Son Jesus and restoring us to The Righteousness of The Royal Sheepfold! For this cause, we gladly present our spirit, soul and body as a living holy sacrifice to be used for Your Greatest Glory!

Sweet Jesus, because no man can come to the Father except You draw them, we interceded on behalf of every lost soul today, asking You to quicken the Spirit of Godly-repentance in their heart and in their mind that they will come confessing with their mouths “a SINCERE YES” to Your unmerited Gift of Grace and receive You now as their personal Savior and LORD pf their life! We’re believing that because it’s never Your Will that anyone should perish but that all humanity be saved, You are directing their footsteps, placing and settling them into a local church home where they will be welcome, loved, nurtured and encouraged to live holy, acceptable and committed lives of faithful obedience to Your Word!

Lord, we ask You reclaim every soul that has turned their back and walked away from Your Perfect Love and Will! Put a fresh “COMMITTED YESin their heart and mind and let today be the day that they come back to You and come back to The Body of Christ, submitting the rest of their lives to the so und teachings of Your Word, learn to love and live their lives denying the lust of their flesh, walking daily to please and Glorify You to this lost, dark and dying world! 

Abba Father, because so many of our family and friends are being afflicted by all manner of sicknesses and diseaseas, we pray that You will touch our brother, touch our sister, bind, rebuke casting out every dis-ease at the root, for Your Name Sake!

Heavenly Father, You are Alpha and Omega, the same yesterday, today and forever! Even as You walked in this earth healing all who were sick, feeble, lame we know that You’re Well Able to do the same right now! Lord Jesus, Your Word declares that Your stripes have redeemed and healed us and we’re yet standing on Your promises that the prayer of faith shall save the sick and raise them up, In Jesus Name! Amen 3x!

Lord, we lift up every believer who’s faith is being sifted by the cares of this world, yet they’re struggling to hold on to Your Word, hoping and trusting that this is the day that You release Divine Power, Supernatural Hope, Strength, Health, Provision, Prosperity and Protection.

Holy Father, we’re fully persuaded that You are our Shield and Buckler therefore we commit our lives to You, trusting You to preserve everyone of us thru the tests that You’ve ordained us to go thru, keeping our minds in PERFECT PEACE, constantly stayed on YOUR PRESENCE! We rebuke doubt and unbelief and standing still, fully-confident that our trouble has an expiration date but Your Power does not! Hence, at Your appointed time, You will bring us out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and with every reward as You have promised in Your Word.

Precious Lord, we pray for every one being torment by Spirits of fear, rejection, disappointment, discouragement, depression, defeat, divorce, loss of employment, bankruptcy, those who are being victimized by institutionalized racism, and unjust illegal incarcerations! We plead the Blood of Jesus over every demonic thought, spirits of anxiety, oppression and confusion. We know that You are not the author of these satanic thoughts and feelings, but You have given us who have put our personal faith through Your Son Jesus, Your Righteousness, You have given us a Spirit of Love, Peace, Joy and a Sound Mind! 

Abba Father, as we lift up our children, our grand and great-grand children, by faith, we abort and overrule every curse that’s been ordered against their lives and we cancel every evil destructive scheme and detour that Satan desires to inflict upon them! As we commit them into Your Providential care, we realize that You have a plan and purpose for their lives too and we have the blessed assurance that their steps and stops are being Divinely orchestrated by Your eyes! Therefore we speak The Peace of God over their spirits, minds and bodies releasing a spirit of Love, Holiness and Excellence to fulfill their God ordained destiny!

Sweet Jesus, we lift up every spiritual leader, believing for immediate manifestation of that special miracle for them who are yet standing on the wall proclaiming Your Word under the conviction and anointing of Holy Spirit. Jesus, we’re trusting and believing You to Grace and encourage them to be the examples of Your Righteousness in their homes, churches and community that will cause everyone who comes into contact with them to fall in love with You, trust wholly in and commit to live the rest of their lives serving You!

Knowing that You Sovereignly Rule and Reign over the affairs of mankind, we’re praying and thanking You for the government/legislative/corporate leaders of our nation! Heavenly Father, we’re praying that You will visit them in the night seasons with dreams and visions, warning them that He who is pregnant with evil and conceives trouble gives birth to disillusionment. He who digs a hole and scoops it out will fall into the pit he has made. The trouble he causes recoils on himself and his violent schemes will come down on his own head.

Abba, we ask that You encourage and comfort the souls of Your elect whose spirits are vexed and overwhelmed with fear, doubt and worry because of the things that are going on in our personal lives and in this ungodly world systems! Lord, send Your assurance that we are never forsaken, alone, and never without Your Very Present Help!

Heavenly Father, we’re trusting You to release a downpour of Divine Favor upon Your children who are challenged by seemingly time-sensitive situations, broken marital relationships, wayward children, loneliness, financial pressures, furloughs, employment and promotion issues, approvals of student/car/home loans! Over rule the predictions and send signs and wonders to assure them that YOU Jehovah Jareh, who shall supply all of their need according to Your Riches in Glory!

Father, we know that there’s so much more that perhaps we should ask, but we’re trusting Holy Spirit to intercept our moans and groans and stir up the hearts and minds of those who are professing Your Name to pray without ceasing! We ask that You release into our hearts, an ever-burning desire for an even greater personal intimacy with Creator God through fellowship of Holy Spirit that we might prove what is the perfect and acceptable will of The Lord Jesus!


Lord Jesus, Your children, the apple of Your Eye, await Your Salvation, in patient confidence and quietness, rejoicing in hope and trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling, suddenly departing in shameful defeat, recognizing 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 and through patient confidence we shall inherit the Promises of GOD!

Abba Father, because You have chosen us and brought us near to dwell safety and secure in Your House, we align our spirits, soul and body with Your Eternal Word! We bow in obedient reverence before The Hope of all the earth, believing that as Your face shines upon us that, You are making Your ways and salvation known among all nations for You Guide and Rule justly! Father, believing that IT IS DONE, In The Exalted Name of Jesus we offer up this prayer, Sealed in The Holy Ghost with a HOLY Alleleujah! Amen 3X!

Now every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, GO TELL SOMEBODY THAT JESUS LOVES AND CARES ABOUT EVERYBODY! #FRONTLINEMINISTRY!

CAN I GET A WITNESS?

can i get a witness

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

For these causes the Jews caught me in the temple, and went about to kill me. Having therefore obtained help of God, I continue unto this day, witnessing both to small and great, saying none other things than those which the prophets and Moses did say should come: Acts 12:21-22

 

As today’s scripture text recounts, The Apostle Paul was called before King Agrippa to testify. Paul, a self-professed prisoner of the Lord Jesus Christ, was absolutely convinced that nobody BUT JESUS was responsible for him being in this predicament, yet not for the reasons they’d presumed but to be a witness for His Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

WHO KNU? When you make a decision to take up your cross and follow Jesus, understand that it means you’re opening up your life to persecution! Strangely enough, for the simple reason that everybody ain’t glad that you got saved!  In fact, there just might be some folk who want to see you not just fail but grave yard dead! 

Of course, we already know that the devil won’t like you…but we don’t like him either, RIGHT? The reason that he don’t like a true witness of Jesus Christ is because they’re gonna tell you the Truth. Regardless of how many false prophets he’s leased upon some unsuspecting soul, there are some true servants who’re not motivated by the insatiable lure of the almighty dollar, greed nor fame but solely by a personal conviction that Jesus is soon to come and they don’t want to see anybody’s soul end up in hell.! #SERIOUSLY!!!

Just take a good look around,  the signs are everywhere, we’re living in the last of the last days! However, God is raising up a generation of ‘last-day preachers’ who’re not prophesying “GET READY! GET READY! GET READY! Your Boaz, your Esther is on the way, yo money is coming, you gonna start a business, write a best-seller book”—but these end-time prophetic Voices, operating under the same anointing as Elijah and John The Baptist, they’re crying out “Turn away from your pattern of waywardness and be saved”!

God is raising up a remnant of men and women who refuse to bow down for the kings riches; but stand for righteousness and do the right thing  because it this right thing! When you do the right thing, God will take you through any and everything! No, every day’s not going be a howdy-howdy-hallelujah day, but I promise you this, whatever God brings you to, He’s well able to take you all the way through to the other side and TRUST2KNO, there will be Glory after this!

The ol’ saints used to sang, “I know the Bible’s right, somebody’s wrong!”  And guess what? While there’s no denying that  it’s a new day, IT’S STILL THE TRUTH! The 21st Century has brough about unimaginable technological advancements and even socio-economic reforms, and YYYESSSS, we’ve come a long way! HOWEVRRRR,  we’re living in the midst of gross darkness. Children are killing their parents, parents are killing their children. It’s dark outside; lesbian and homosexuals are marrying, the government is enacting legislation that forbids the parents to raise their children in the fear and admonition of the Lord! In other words, everything that God said would happen, is happening right before our eyes! DON’T SHOUT ME DOWN, nah!

Men are turning their backs on God; rejecting the Truth of The Word, in favor of fake news, in and out of the church! The Scriptures warn us, when we see these things happening, we have to make a decision to save yourself from this untoward generation! (Ref. Acts 2:40)

I don’t know about you, but I have decided that by The Grace of God, even if everything and everybody goes down, I’m sticking with THE ETERNAL WORD, bcause I mean to make the rapture! What about you? What will it take for you to make  up your mind?

Precious ones, may I submit for your careful consideration, while it’s yet today, harden not your heart; tomorrow is not promised to any of us! Why live beneath your privilege afforded to us, in the CHRIST, WHEN The Price has already been paid and The WAY has already been made? 

“I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:” Deuteronomy 30:19

DIDJAHEARDAT? WHY WAIT? MAKE YOUR DECISION NOW! #IJS!!! IT COULD BE HELL 2 PAY! CAN I GET A WITNESS?

SELAH!

Good Morning Family! GOTTA MOMENT? GREAT!

We’re delighted to have you join us today in our  Weekly Thursdays’ Corporate Prayer and Fasting! We appreciate every opportunity and privilege extended to us that we might entreat The Presence of our Great High Priest, pouring out our hearts desires, petitions and supplications with Thanksgiving. Humbled by such graciousness, we bow before Him, embracing Him in earnest expectation, confident that He Who Rules Forever by His Power is able to save and deliver us from any of life’s maladies, we grab hold to The Horns of The Altar now to worship Him…

 

I LOVE HIM! I LOVE HIM! BCUZ HE FIST LOVED ME! HE PURCHASED MY SALVATION, ON CALVARY! LET THE CHURCH SAY YYYESSSSS! YYYESSSSS! YYYEEESSS! YYYYEEESSSSS! YEEEESSSS! YYYESSSS! YES LORD! YYYEEESSSS LORD! YYYEEESSSS LORD! YYYEEEEESSSSS LORD! YYYYEEESSS LORD! YYYYEEESSS LORD! U BEEN SO GOOD! U BEEEN SSOO GOOOD! U BEEENNNN SSSOOO GOOOD! U BEEN SO GOOD! U BEEN SO GOOOOD! U BBEEEENNNN SSSOOOO GOOD! HAVE UR WAY! HAVE UR WAAYYY! HAVE UR WWWAAAAAY! HAVE UR WAY! HHHAAVVEEE UR WWAAAYYY! HAVE UR WAY! LET’S PRAY…

 

Father in Heaven, here we are before you once again. We come today with outstretched arms, open hands and grateful hearts, thanking You for blessing us with one more day! Great Is Thy Faithfulness, O Lord, unto me! For this is the day that You have made, therefore we’re rejoicing in The Splendor of Your Magnificent Glory! We know that it’s only by Your Grace and Mercy, that we’re yet here to enjoy life, health and strength! We bless Your Name for the continuous outpouring of Your Unconditional Lovingkindness towards us! As we present ourselves as living sacrifices, holy and acceptable unto you 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!

 

Abba Father, it’s with Eternal Gratitude that we bless You for allowing us to enter into Your Throne Room, with hope-filled expectation that You will entreat us graciously as we pour out the burdens that seem to overwhelm our hearts, releasing and committing everything that concerns us to You because You’ve proven Yourself to be Faithful and True.

 

Bowing before You, we acknowledge Your Omnipresence, Omnipotence and Omniscience! You see and You already know everything about everyone of us, yet You invite us to come fully expecting to find Grace and Mercy, comfort and strength that encourages us to hold on to every Word that You have spoken over our lives, even before we were born!

 

Daddy, yielding humbly before Your Sovereignty, we ask Your forgiveness for everything that we have spoken, done and even thought that was not pleasing in Your sight. We now thank You because You have assured us that if we would confess our sins, You, being Faithful and Just, will forgive us, and wash us in The Precious Blood of Jesus, cleanse us from all unrighteousness, and restore the breach that our disobedience has caused between our poor souls and our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!

 

Now, we pray Holy Spirit, that You will intercede on behalf of our family, our friends, even our enemies, knowing that Your love is the same for each and everyone of us!

We lift up all who have never trusted and accepted Your Son Jesus as Savior and Lord! We believe Holy Spirit is quickening that stony heart now imparting a Spirit of Godly-Repentance that’s provoking them to come, humbled by Your Lovingkindness, and they are now receiving Your Mercy and Grace to Save. We believe that You are leading, guiding and planting them into the fertile grown of a local church where they shall be accepted with Love and embrace with Joy by Your Family, taught and transformed by Your Word of Life to take their position in The Kingdom of Heaven. 

We pray for every backslider, who having been deceived by Satan, has turned their back on Your Salvation and Deliverance and gone back into the bondage of this dark, evil and sin-lusting world. Father, we know that because You so loved the world, You sent Jesus to die for sinners and saints! Because You are The Good Shepherd and full of Loyal Love, You are wating with open Arms and Heart to receive them back into The Fold if they will ask You to forgive them, recommit and dedicate the rest of their lives wholly unto faithfully serving You!

Abba, we know that You have instructed us, to look not at the temporary things, but to the eternal, yet because of the frailness of our flesh, we’re easily tempted to become overwhelmed by the cares of this world causing our hearts to become burdened with the pressures of this life! While we struggle to stay focused on Your Presence and Promises, sometimes our spirits become wearied with fear, doubt, unbelief, plagued with restlessness, despondency and hopelessness, sickness and disease, financial debt, marriage problems, wayward rebellious children, broken relationships, unprovoked threats, depression, addictions and insecurities that we lose sight of Your Everlasting Promises of Provision and Protection! Father, help us to stand still and keep us in the center of Your Will, as only You can!

 

Lord Jesus, we lift up  those whose bodies are afflicted by all manner of sickness and diseases. We ask that You touch our brothers and sisters, especially those who are enduring fatal and dibilitating illness caused by the Spirit of cancer, strokes, heart attacks, kidney failure, liver disease. We intercede on behalf of all those undergoing surgical procedures, those in recovery rooms, those on life-support systems, not knowing that they’re even in this world! We’re declaring and decreeing that as we’re praying You’re walking through every ward, touching, healing, delivering, miraculously rebuking fatigue, mistakes, mishaps, misdiagnosis and premature death for Your Name Sake.

As Your Eyes roam to and fro throughout the earth, we pray that You save and deliver speedily by Your Mighty Hand all those who are crying out and seeking Your Face at the 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, and shield us from every weapon that our enemy would rail against us. Impart, wisdom and understanding that Your Name, Jesus is a Strong Tower to those that You have declared righteous can run into to be saved. Open up our minds and our hearts, fill us with confident assurance that You are LORD of, over, in and through ALL! You have sworn by GOD-SELF that You will never ever leave nor forsake us, even to the end of this Age!!

 

Grace us with hope-filled Peace that no trouble, test or tragedy can come near us except You allow it to prove our faith and Your Faithfulness to turn everything around to work in our favor, bringing about exuberant testimonies and praises of Your Eternal Magnificence, Honor, Glory and Power! Even we don’t know what to do, we’re trusting You to preserve us in every trial, keep us fully-confident that You have Pre-Ordained an expiration date and promised to bring them out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and with the reward as You have promised them in Your Word!

 

Father, thank You for listening to the hearts of all those who are distraught by grief and fear, remember the elderly, the widows, the downcast who have borne the heat of the day, those who pushed and prayed us through! Father, give them sweet peace that our God is not unrighteous to forget or overlook the labor and love they’ve shown towards Your Name and how they have and continue to minister to the saints! Father we decree that every demonic-induced spirit of fear and confusion is defeated NOW because of Your Anointing and that the Spirit of Love, Power and Sound-mindness and Purpose is being released in the lives of Your people now, in Jesus Name!

Precious Lord, remember the children, our grands and great-grand children! By faith we plead THE BLOOD OF JESUS is covering them wherever they go! We abort and overrule every curse, cancel every scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon their lives! As we commit them into Your Providential care, we remember how generous You were and continue to be in dispensing Grace and Mercy towards us! Realizing that You have a Plan and Purpose for their lives too, we resist fear and worry, but through faith and patience, we walk in the Blessed Assurance that their steps and stops are being Divinely orchestrated by Your eyes! Therefore we speak The Peace of God over their spirits, minds and bodies releasing a spirit of Love, Holiness and Excellence to fulfill their God ordained destiny!

 
Abba, we lift up every Bishop, Pastor, Overseer, Apostle, Evangelist, Preacher and Teacher, Deacon, Board Member, Usher, Muscian, Choir, Praiz Team member, Nurses, Parking Attendant and Security personnel! Undergird them with Your Anointing to carry out their assignment, under the direction of Holy Spirit. Encourage and strengthen their hearts, souls and spirits as they endeavor to serve, reach, teach, preach, guide, guard and comfort those whom You’ve charged them to minister to. Lord You know how discouraging it can be when oftentimes they seem to turn a deaf ear to Your Word! Cover them as they go in and out amongst Your people and any who would seek to discredit, hinder and even destroy their faith, faithfulness and the ministry You have ordained.

 

Heavenly Father, as You have instructed us, we pray for the leaders of our nation, government, corporate, judicial, education, financial, health institutions, military and community service workers!  We’re asking that You touch their 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 believe that because their hearts are in Your Hands, they are being continuously opened 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!

 

Holy Father, we pray for total deliverance from every cord that would bind Your people and come against our Divine Destiny! We rebuke the enemies of our minds and Thankya that nothing can stop the blessings or us from performing the greater works You have assigned to the covenant saints! Strengthen and renew the Covenant of Faith! We thankya for the courage and patience to stand, steadfast, consistent, always abounding in the work of our LORD!

Lord, there are so many other things, that we have yet to mention, but we’re trusting, believing You to fix it, Jesus, as only You can! Lord, we know that You are not just able, but willing to do anything that we ask, in accordance to Your Word, in Jesus Name! As we walk through this day, depending soley on You for an Abundant Life, Divine Health and Your  Unspeakable Joy to strengthen us for whatever lies ahead, we shall give You all the Praise!

As we offer us this prayer, Father we wait in confidence and quietness, rejoicing in hope and trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling and suddenly departing in shameful 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!

Sweet HOLY SPIRIT, we seal this prayer with A Holy Hallaleujahhh! For WE believe 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 JESUS IS REAL, HE LOVES THEM , HE STILL SAVES AND HE’S COMING BACK SOON!

SELAH!

GOOD MORNING FAM! GOTTA MOMENT? GLORRAA2GAWD!

We’re delighted to have you join us again in our weekly Thursdays’ Corporate Prayer and Fasting! During these vexing times, we are eternally grateful to our Creator for allowing us the honor and privilege to come boldly before His Majestic Throne and find Grace, Mercy and Hope that empowers us to remain steadfast in our faith, trusting You to perfect everthing that concerns us. Shall we go in together,..

Bow down and worship Him! Worship Him! Ooooh worship Him! Bow down and worship Him! Enter in! Oooh enter in! Consuming Fire, Sweet Perfume! Your awesome frangrance, fills this room! This is Holy ground! This is Holy ground! Come on and bow down! Ooooh Sweet Wonder! Ooooh Sweet Wonder! JESUS THE SON OF GOD! OOOOHHHH SWEET WONDER! OOOHHH SWEET WONDER! JESUSSSUSSSS THE SON OF GOD!

 

Abba Father, we come now with our hands lifted up,  mouths filled with praise and adoration and hearts loaded with gratitude to The Only Wise God, our Lord and Savior! We know that it was You who watched over us, keeping us safe during the night, while we slept in our beds unaware and undesturbed by dangers seen and unseen! We know that it was Your Hand who blocked death and distruction, determined to destroy the plans and destiny that You ordained for our lives before we exited our Mother’s womb! But we know that Hell can’t stop anything that Heaven Starts! For this cause we bow humbly thanking and praising You for being LORD of All Living, Salvation, Power, Peace, Provision, Wisdom, Knowledge and Understanding!

Holy Father, we thank You for sending Your Son Jesus, to pay the debt that we owed for our sin, satisfying and justifying Your Righteous decree, making A Way for us to become Children of The Most High God by accepting the Sacrificial Atoning Blood of The Messiah, The Redeemer of our souls! We know that there was absolutely nothing we could’ve ever done to deserve such Amazing Grace and because of the unsearchable riches of Your Lovingkindness, we present our bodies as a Living Sacrafice, holy and acceptable to Thine Will as the only reasonable response to the weight of Your Glorious Benevolence!

Knowing that no man can come to The Father, lest You initiate the Covenant Relationship and that it’s the goodness of God that leads men to repent, we pray, Sweet Holy Spirit, that as Your Eyes roam to and fro throughout the earth, that You prick the stony hearts of those who are yet lost and blinded by the rulers of darkness of this unregenerated world, quicken them with a Spirit of Godly-Repentance, that causes them to hear and respond to Your High Calling with a “SINCERE YES LORD, what must I do to be saved?” Confident that it is not Your Will that any should perish and  be banished to a pit of eternal damnation and separation from You, we thank You for saving those souls who are crying out to You now. We thank You for rewarding the prayers of those who have deligently interceded on behalf of their family members, friends, co-workers, associates and even strangers that they’ve passed by, in Jesus Name, AMEN 3X!

Father, knowing that You are married to the backsliders, we lift up those who’ve been decieved by Satan into rejecting Your Word and Will for their lives, and turning back to the wicked ways of this sin-lusting world from which You have called them out!  Because of Your unrelenting Love and Mercy, cancel the plot of Satan and snatch them out of the snare enprisoning them, deliver their soul from every ungodly soul tie, rebuke the temptation and reprove the Tempter and Accuser of The Bretheren. Show him that You are Lord over all! Open the deao ears and break up the fallow ground of the rebellious and provoke a “COMMITTED YES” to erupt out of their bellys now that empowers them to come running back into Your Loving Arms, determined to live the rest of their lives serving You and reflecting The Wonder of Your Glorious Light  that it causes all those who they come into contact with to envy the new life that can only be realized through developing a personal relationshp with The Master, Sustainer and Redeemer, Jesus Christ!
Jesus, Your Word says that every good and perfect gift comes down from The Father of Lights, therefore we must thankya for our spouses and children! While we are not perfect in ourselves, they are perfect for us because You chose to send them into our lives! We thank You for blessing our marriages! Inspite of the test and trials that we’ve experienced You continue to fit and bind this holy union in unconditional love, a generous readiness to forgive, not giving place to the works of the devil nor allowing others to cause division to what You have joined together!  We recognize that by keeping You as The Head of our household, assures that everything and everyone else will fall into  proper Divine Alignment!

We come against untimely death, sickness and diseases, addictions, unnatural perversions, ungodly appetites, lustful desires and temptations! Abba Father, because we realize that You have a plan and purpose for their lives also, we have the blessed assurance that their steps and stops are being divinely orchestrated by Your eyes therefore, we release The Spirit of Truth and Excellence upon their spirit souls, minds and bodies that NO WEAPON THAT IS FORMED AGAINST THEM SHALL PROSPER, in Jesus Name Amen 3x!

As You Sovereignly Rule and Reign over the affairs of mankind, we’re praying for the leaders of our nation, government, corporate, judicial, educational, health care providers and every arena of our society! We’re asking You to touch their minds and infiltrate their hearts with a Godly Fear, speak to them in dreams and visions alerting let them that The Government Rests Upon Your Shoulders and You Who Sit Enthroned Above the Heavens are keeping record of the deeds of every man’s heart and will reward accordingly!
Endow the hearts of Your people with a peace that surpasses all understanding and a confident expectation that our times are in Your Hands and regardless of the deceitfulness of this world, You have promised to protect, provide and preserve the righteous who trust and obey Your Word! We ask that You continue opening the eyes of our understanding so that Your people are not easily deceived by those who would desire to entrap Your elect in bondage to anything which You have delivered us from! In Jesus Name, Amen 3x!
Father, we believe that as we’re praying,You are touching our brother, our sister whose body has been afflicted by all manner of sickness and disease, especially the spirit of cancer, strokes, heart attacks, kidney failure, liver disease, mental and emotional issues! We intercede on behalf of all those undergoing surgical procedures, those in recovery rooms. We’re praying for those who’re on life-support systems, not knowing that they’re even in this world! We’re declaring and decreeing that as we’re praying You’re walking through every ward, touching, healing, delivering, miraculously rebuking fatigue, mistakes, mishaps, misdiagnosis and premature death for Your Name Sake!\

We plead the Blood of Jesus, declaring and decreeing You are Alpha and Omega, the same yesterday, today and forever! Even as You walked in this earth healing all who were sick, feeble, lame we know that You’re Well Able to do the same right now! Lord Jesus, Your Word declares that Your stripes have redeemed and healed us and we’re yet standing on your promises that the prayer of faith shall save the sick and raise them up!

We rebuke the enemies of our minds, thanking You that nothing can stop the blessings or us from performing the greater works You have assigned to the covenant saints! We thankya for the courage and patience to stand, steadfast, consistent, always abounding in the work of our LORD!

We pray for consoling strength for all who have lost loved ones, rebuke the demons of the minds, and emotions, disappointments, restore power, love and sound minds, hope and the JOY of Your Salvation. Help us to understand that because we are royal priests, a holy nation unto You, failure is not final and our victorious testimonies shall provoke envy of other nations who have not submitted to The True God but who yet serve false gods!

Father as we wait in confidence and quietness, we rejoice in hope, trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling and suddenly departing in shameful defeat, terrified 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!

Abba Father, we boldly stand in agreement with You Who hears and answers our prayers, and forgives our transgressions! Holy Father, our souls are strengthened as we shout with joy unto The One to Whom all men will come!

Father, bowing in reverent obedience, before The Hope of all the Earth, we thank You NOW, for WE believe that it is done! In The Exalted Name of Jesus. Amen 3X and It Is So!

Now every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, GO TELL SOMEBODY THAT JESUS LOVES EVERYBODY!

Good morning Kingdom Children of The Most High God! GOTTA MOMENT? AWESOME!

Here we go again and we’re so excited that you have joined us in our Thursdays’ Day of Corporate Fasting and Prayer! The Bible tells us that some things can only be released through effective fervent fasting and prayer. In deed we must all agree that we need to pray more NOW THAN EVER BEFORE! Let’s enter into The Majestic Throne Room of The Lord and Creator of Life!

Blessed be the Name of The Lord! He is Worthy to be praised and Adored! So let’s lift our hands on one accord! Singing Blessed Be the Name! BLESSED BE THE NAME! BLESSED BE THE NAME OF THE LORD! HE’s sweet I know, Jesus is sweet I know! Storm clouds may rise; strong winds may blow! But, I’ll tell the world, wherever I go, that I’ve found my Savior…and HE’S SWEET I KNOW! I really love the Lorrrddd…I REALLY LOVE THE LORD! U DON’T KNOW WHAT HE’S DONE FOR ME! HE GAVE ME THE VICTORYYYY! I LUV HIM! I LUV HIMMMM..IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII REAALLLYYY LUUUUUVVVV THE LORD!

AS WE’RE PRAYING, TRUSTING, WE’RE BELIEVING & DECLARING….
Abba Father, we come before You today, not in our own righteousness but in the Magnificent, All Powerful Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus! As we come clothed in humble obedience, we’re rejoicing, praising and thanking You for blessing us to see this brand new day! We’re  sooo grateful, Heavenly Father, for one more opportunity to embrace and enjoy the Abundance of Your Mercy, Your Grace, Your Power and Your Peace!

Daddy, as we thank You for being LORD of our Salvation, Deliverance, Hope, Breakthrough and Provision, we’re forever eternally grateful that despite knowing our frame, Your Faithful Commpassion yet allows You to look beyond our human frailties, faults and iniquities to continuously supply and minister to all our need! Therefore,  before we go any further, we come now seeking Forgiveness, Mercy and Grace, convinced that You Who searches our hearts is able and willing to cleanse us from unrighteousness and restore us to right fellowship in Your Kingdom!

We praise You today Lord, for renewing our strength, encouraging our hearts and enlightening our understanding. We recognize that You, our Great High Priest, is able to search the secret things, and even when our hearts condemn us, Your Lovingkindness is greater than our broken and contrite spirits! As we come to the end of ourselves, we draw near to You, repenting openly, relying and depending wholly on the Faithfulness of Your Word!

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that no man can come to You except You draw them! Therefore,  we intercede on behalf of every unsaved soul, asking that as Your eyes continue to search the hearts of mankind, quicken our hearts and minds with the Spirit of Godly-repentance that all will cry out to You, sincerely confessing ‘YES’ to your Mercy and Grace toreceive You as personal Lord and Savior today. As You draw them near to You,  because it’s not Your Will that any should perish, but that all would run quickly to Your Loving Arms and receive Your Saving Grace, You will save them! Father, as You pick them up, we’re believing that You’re directing their footsteps to a local Church home where they will be welcomed by their Kingdom Brothers and Sistas, loved, encouraged, nourished, and taught how to live out their lives pleasing and glorifying You!

Abba Father, we pray for every backslider who has walked away from the fold for whatever reason! Your Word assures us that You have never issued a divorce decree from any who has come into covenant relationship with You. We ask Holy Spirit to prick the heart and mind of those who have fallen prey to the Deceiver’s lies right now. Let them know that You’re looking, waiting with Your arms open wide to receive them in joyful celebration as they return to Your Kingdom! Lord, plant a ‘commited YES’ into their hearts and minds that restores and empowers them to be Faithful witnesses to a lost and dying wold, In Jesus Name! Amen 3X!

Sweet Jesus, touch our brother, touch our sister whose body has been afflicted by all manner of sickness and disease, especially the spirit of cancer, heart, kidney, lung, liver, bone disease, drug and alcohol addictions, mental oppression and depression, Alzheimer, dementia, strokes, high/low blood pressure! Lord we know that You have the Power to rebuke and cast it out at the root, for Your Name Sake. Lord, Your Word declares that Your stripes have redeemed and healed us and we’re yet standing on your promises that the prayer of faith shall save the sick and raise them up, In Jesus Name!

Lord, as we lift up every believer who is experiencing the torment of grief, anxiety and weariness, those who have lost loved-ones unexpectantly, those who’ve been victimized by senseless killings, those who are caretakers of ailing loved ones, those who are struggling to remain hopeful as they sit at the bedsides of those whom the doctors have gone as far as they know, yet today they’re determined to hold on to Your Hand by faith today! We lift up marriages that are being target by Satan, broken family/friends relationships. We speak revival and restoration into their hearts, minds immdiately! We rebuke the Spirit of disobedence and rebellion and command it to leave in Jesus Name! We declare respect, humility, gratitude, loyalty and obedience over our children, spouses and family members, in Jeus Name!

Abba Father, we declare and agree that as we are yet praying, You are releasing Divine Power, Supernatural Strength, Health, Provision, Prosperity and Protection into the lives of Your people. We Thankya Father, that as You preserve us thru the tests, keep us constantly aware of YOUR PRESENCE, we shall remain fully-confident that at Your APPOINTED TIME, You will bring us out testifying that we are more than conquers because You have wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and rewarded our souls as promised in Your Word!

Sweet Holy Spirit, thank You for an outpouring of Your Divine Favor upon each and every one of your children who are seeking employment, promotion, prompt approval for student/car/home loans, favorable resolutions of legal matters and assure them that YOU are Jehovah Jareh, who shall supply all of their need according to Your Riches in Glory!

Father, because You are a Covenant Keeping God, by faith,  we lift up our children, our children’s children,  we abort every curse that’s been ordered against their lives and we cancel every plot and scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them! As we commit them into Your Providential care, we remember how far You have brought us and realizing that You have a plan and purpose for their lives too and we have the blessed assurance that their steps and stops are being Divinely orchestrated under the watchful care of Your eyes! Therefore we speak The Peace of God over their spirits, souls, minds and bodies releasing a Spirit of Love, Holiness, Faithfulness and Excellence to fulfill their God ordained destiny!

Sweet Jesus,  recognizing October as being Pastors Appreciation Month, we lift up every spiritual leader that You’ve called to proclaim The Gospel of Jesus Christ. We ask that You touch their hearts and minds, strengthen and encourage them to cast their cares upon You, trusting You to lead and guide them as they shepherd the flock that You’ve entrusted to them. Remind them that except You build the House they labor in vain, except You keep the City the watchman waits in vain. Uplift those who have become weired by the rebellious and resentful to keep believing for immediate manifestation of that special miracle, fulfillment of the vision! Encourage the souls of all who have yet determined to keep their hands to the gospel plow!

We’re trusting and believing that as You continue to Grace them to be the holy humble examples in their homes, marketplace, communities and churches that will cause those who are in their sphere of influence to love, trust and live everyday of life serving and glorifying You, You shall release a double portion of Your Anointing to stand flat-footed, uncompromisingly and relentlessly on the Wall, proclaiming The Whole Counsel of Your Word under the power and conviction of Holy Spirit, in Jesus Name, AMEN 3X!

Heavenly Father, as You’ve taught us to do, we lift up our political, social, judicial, business, education, healthcare, daycare and public service worker and leaders, trusting You to touch the hearts of each one of them! Remind them that Power Belongs to GOD! Instruct their hearts through dreams and nite visions convicting unto repentance, convincing them that they’re merely instruments in Your Plan to establish Your Kingdom in the earth as it is in Heaven! Rebuke the spirit of pride and arrogance, lying and deception, greed and corruption! Remind them that as You Sovereignly Rule and Reign over the affairs of mankind, You Who Sit Enthroned Above the Heavens, are keeping record of the deeds of every man’s heart and will Justly reward accordingly!
Abba Father, we decree that every demonic-induced spirit of fear, failure, rejection, hopelessness and disappointment is defeated by Your Anointing and that the Spirit of Love, Power and Soberness is being released now, in Jesus Name! We’re declaring and trusting that each morning Your children will awaken empowered with assuring Grace to accomplish every assignment and sleep peacefully every nite, confident of brand new hope-filled tomorrows!

Lord Jesus, send confirmation to those who are wavering as they’re waiting in faith for Your hand to move on our behalf. Thank You for allowing the pain that we’re experiencing to birth greatness in us! Transition us into new levels of Your anointing, opportunities, relationships, restoring that which is broken. Help us to move by faith, remembering not the former things but confidently reaching forward fully persuaded and anticipating that everything You’ve promised already is!

As we offer up this prayer of faith, we speak life, believing that The Blood of Jesus is covering our babies in daycare, our children in schools, our families, on their jobs, as they go and come in and that nothing shall cut our lives short, but we shall live and not die! Thank You for the great things You have prepared for the people of God!

Holy Father, we wait in confidence and quietness, rejoicing in hope-filled expectation,  anticipating that every worker of iniquity is suddenly trembling violently in fear,  departing  immediately in shameful defeat and running away from Your people terrorized because You, The Creator and Sustainer of Life, have heard the voice of our weeping, supplications and received our prayer as a sweet savor coming up before Your Sovereign Throne of Grace and Mercy!

Abba Father, in closing, we stand in agreement with The True and Living God, who hears and answers our prayers, and forgives our transgressions! Because You have chosen us, committing to love and care for us, our souls shout with unspeakable joy unto The One to Whom all men will come! We bow reverently before The Hope of all the earth, believing that as Your face shines upon us, You are making Your Ways and Salvation known among all nations for You Reign, Rule and Guide justly!

Holy Father, believing that ACCORDING TO YOUR PERFECT WILL, In The Exalted Name of JESUS IT IS SO, WE CRY AMEN  AND HALLELUUJAHHHH 3X !
Now every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, GO TELL SOMEBODY THAT JESUS LOVES EVERYBODY AND CAN SAVE ANYBODY!

SHALLOW SAINTS

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

And now, children, stay with Christ. Live deeply in Christ. Then we’ll be ready for HIM when HE appears, ready to receive Him with open arms, with no cause for red-faced guilt or lame excuses when He arrives. Once you’re convinced that he is right and righteous, you’ll recognize that all who practice righteousness are God’s true children. 1 JOHN 2:28-29 THE MESSAGE

 
It jus might surprise you! One of the greatest deterrents to advancing The Kingdom of God in the earth is not ‘da devil’ BUT ‘Shallow Christians’What is that, you ask. Well they’re not that hard to recognize. In fact, they’re probably your pew partners. Whhhaaaa? #ikr! While they confess their faith in The Lord Jesus, their walk does not line up with their talk, and as a result, most likely they’re confusing many who’ve yet to invite Christ into their lives as their personal Savior and Lord!

OOOHHH Yessss I did go there! I know how churrch-folk are adamant about not judgingright? But, for your own safety,  check da BOOK!  #Seriously! The Bible says a tree is known by the fruit it bears! More importantly, GOD knows those who are His(Ref. 2 Timothy 2:19)

Without a doubt, the preaching and teaching of this Gospel of Christ is still the best way to get souls saved, but sometimes His PR staff could use a refreshers course on what it means to live deeply in Christ!

Rest assured, God is not mocked! (Ref. Galatians 6:7) While we might impress some people with our 11:00 A.M. Sunday morning tongue-talking, pew hopping, propha-lyin, shout’n and danc’n, GOD KNOWS the difference between those who are faking it ’till they make it and those who freely rejoice in the mercy, compassionate, longsuffering, unconditional Love of The Heavenly Fatheryet acknowledge that sometimes they miss the mark and have yet to reach perfection!

While shallow christians hide behind shameless excuses to continue to satisfy their ungodly cravings, when a true child of God is convicted by Holy Spirit, they will be quick to repent of willful or unwillful sin!  GOD KNOWS those who are genuinely striving everyday to mortify the deeds of their wicked flesh and live a life that pleases HIM… even to their own hurt! After all, we are living epistles! It’s our holy lifestyle  that will advertise and promote the True Answer to mankinds’ most dire and desperate need–THE SAVIOR OF THE WORLD, JESUS CHRIST!

I am by no means suggesting that this is easy nor is it a one and done thang! But God already took care of that too. He sent your Guardian, Holy Spirit, to live inside of you to teach and empower you to say NO to sin and YES to righteousness!

Sometimes, it looks like Satan is gaining the upper hand, huh?  Beloved, don’t fall for the devil’s tricks and please don’t blame God! TRUST2KNO, God ain’t scarred! Remember what happened when Jesus went to Hell, snatched the keys from his puny hands and got up proclaiming, ALL POWER IS IN MY HANDS? (Ref. Revelations 1:17-18)

God is raising up an army of disciples that no man can number; building a new nation of trusting believers who will obey His Voice; hewing out a community of courageous Believers who’re not ashamed to live righteously in the midst of darkness as a monument to HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, POWER AND MAJESTY!

Examine yourself? REPRSENT JESUS? LIVE DEEPLY? SHALLOW SAINT? #WOW!

SELAH!

Pause, Ponder, Pray & Praiz!
