EXCHANGING TRUTH 4 A LIE!

EXCHANGING THE TRUTH 4 A LIE

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

…because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were tankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened Romans 1:21

Therefore God also gave tem up to uncleanness, in the lusts of teir hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. Romans 1:24-25

 

Granted, you don’t hear a lotta preaching these days about this particular subject, nevertheless, TRUTHBTOLD, there is NO EXCUSE!

I know many have chosen to sugar-coat reality in an attempt to dismiss their personal obligation and responsibility, preferring to see themselves as victims of some mystical cosmic mishap, yet from the beginning of time, GOD has openly made GODSELF known to humanity. The Holy Scriptures announce that even ‘the heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament displays His handiwork.’ (Ref. Psalm 19:1, Acts 14:15-17)!
Can we talk 4REAL 4REAL?

Our problem has never been that we don’t know the TRUTH, but as history has clearly disclosed, since mankind’s knowledge of God became perverted by the willfulness of rebellious flesh, humanity has been determined to oppose the Righteousness of God! As a result man’s heinous act of high treason, his God Consciousness has been severed, thereby losing contact with the true purpose of his existence!

Choosing to yield to the dictates of their heart’s fleshy lusts, instead of Glorifying God, they rejected Truth for a Lie!  Having created man with the power, ability and freedom of choice, God turned them over to pursue the vile passions and inevitable consequences of the insatiable deception,  idolatry and corruption, reaping the Wrath of their selfishness, uncleanliness, ingratitude and rebellion!

Only a fool denies the existence of GOD. (Ref. Psalm 14:1) Still too many, by failing to acknowledge Him as GOD, refuse to bow to His Majesty in their faithful obedient service,  and are determined to attain righteousness through their own understanding of good and acceptable behavior. And we all know how that turns out, huh?

While the godz of this world work relentlessly to distract us away from seeking a personal revelation of Our Loving Father, we must always remember, that our enemies can do absolutely nothing, except God allows! Hence, as The Good Shepherd safely guides us through the fires, floods and the storms of this life, these experiences allow us to gain a fresh insight into the height, length, dept and width of His Loving Kindness and the Sufficiency of His Grace to any who demonstrates personal trust in Him through a lifestyle of humility, loyalty and faithful obedience!

God has so wondrously fashioned each man with a GOD-SIZED VOID so that the ultimate fulfillment of life can only be consummated through his pursuit of intimacy with his Creator! Unfortunately only a few are driven to forsake the lure of this world’s glitz and glamour to tread the least traveled remote pathways to ETERNAL LIFE!

But every once in a while, a isolated sojourner catches a glimpse of The EVERLASTING LIGHT OF HOPE found ONLY in Christ Jesus, forsakes the ways of this ungodly world to lay hold of ETERNAL TRUTH establishing themselves firmly rooted and grounded in The Hands of The Almighty King, who has Sovereignly summoned them, before the foundation of this world, as HIS BELOVED!

THURSDAYS’ PRAYERS!

PRAYN AND FASTING PIC

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

Good Morning Family! GOTTA MOMENT? GREAT! Welcome to a new day We’re so glad that you’ve joined with us today in our weekly Thursdays’ Day of Corporate Prayer and Fasting!! We appreciate this opportunity and privilege to entreat The Presence of our Great High Priest, pouring out our hearts desires, concerns, petitions and supplications with Thanksgiving. We know that seeking You delights Your Heart, ignites Your Compassion, causing You to save and deliver us from any of life’s maladies! Let’s go in together…

WELCOME HOLY SPIRIT! WE ARE IN UR PRESENCE! FILL US WITH UR POWER. COME LIVE INSIDE OF ME! YOU ARE MY STRENGTH…YOU ARE MY STRENGTH, STRENGTH LIKE NO OTHER. STRENGTH LIKE NO OTHER REACHES TO ME. YOU KNO MY NAME! YOU KNO MY NAME! YOU KNO MY NAME…FATHER, I stretch my hand to THEE! No other help I know! If THY withdraw THYSELF from me…where shall I go…
Father in Heaven, Once again we bow before Thee! With outstretched arms, open hands and grateful hearts, we thank You for this day that You have made! As we rejoice in The Splendor of Your Magnificent Glory, we acknowledge that it’s only because of Your Grace and Mercy, that we’re yet here! Your Unconditional Love for us has allowed us one more day to enjoy Your Abundance of Life, Health and Strength. We’re thankful for every opportunity to present ourselves as living sacrifices, holy and acceptable unto You. From our Mother’s womb, You’ve proven Yourself to be Faithful and True Father. 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!
Abba Father, with eternal gratitude 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 everything that concerns us to You! We know that You are Omnipresent, Omniscient and Omnipotent, seeing and knowing ALL THINGS about everyone of us, yet You welcome us to come to You,  finding Grace and Mercy to comfort, strengthen and encourage us to hold on to every WORD that You have spoken over our lives, before we were ever born.

Daddy, as we stand humbly before Your Sovereignty, we’re asking You to forgive us for everything that we, have willfully or unwillfully spoken, done and even thought that was not pleasing in Your sight. We thank You now 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, cleansing us from all unrighteousness, and restoring the breach that our disobedience has caused between our poor souls and our Lord and Savior! Now, we ask Holy Spirit to intercede on our behalf, our family, our friends, even our enemies, as we know that Your love is the same for each and everyone of us!

Abba, we know that You have instructed us, to look not at the temporary things, but to the eternal. Yet You know the frailness of our flesh, and how easily we’re provoked and tempted to become overwhelmed by the cares of this world when our 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. Lord, You know that when we lose our focus on You, our days can be spent beneath clouds of evil foreboding and our nites are plagued with restlessness, despondency and hopelessness! Holy Spirit, rebuke the demons of our minds, help us to cast down strongholds, arguments, imaginations and every high thing that tries to exalt itself again the knowledge of Your Word. Keep us ever mindful of Your Presence that we might dwell in perfect peace, as only You can!

Lord, we thankya for being a Listening God! According to The Holy Bible, THE BLOOD OF JESUS yet speaks for us. Hence, even as the blood of Abel cried out to You from the ground, Your ears are not deaf to the cries of our fathers, mother, Grandfathers,Grandmothers, husbands, wives, brothers and sisters, sons and daughters, nephews, nieces and cousins all over this world, even these UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! Therefore, as Your ears are tuned into the effectual, fervent, righteous prayers that have been uttered from the hearts and lips of those who intercede on behalf of loved ones, we believe that at Your Appointed Time they shall be fulfilled according to Your Will!

 

Sweet Jesus, while You have taught us to love everyone that You’ve created in Your Own Image, we can’t deny that we need You to heal the pain, anger, grief and distrust,and yes even that glimpse of revenge that taints the hearts of Your people of color, the oppressed, abased, downcast and dysinfrancized by the prevailing injustices inflicted upon us. While those in ‘power’  have sworn to take the position of being color-blind, nevertheless as we’ve seen as of late, their voices are mute when our brothers and sisters are killed, kidnapped, incarcerated, addicted to deadly drug substances and nothing is done to their executioners! However, when other ethnicities are involved in these heinousness, the social medias stream live speeches from The Executive Office to floor of Congress and Senators, holding the top-three trending headlines of the ‘atrocious brutal massacre’ throughout the nation!

 

We pray that You speak to them in dreams and visions, compel them to remember that their power emanates from You Who holds life and death in Your Hands. Give them to know that Your eyes are roaming to and fro and that every thought, motive and intent of man is a candle to You! Convict them to lead and guide those who they have been selected to serve with humility and holy fear towards You and that they will recognize that 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!

Lord we pray that You save, heal and deliver speedily by Your Mighty Hand, all those who are crying out to you, 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 anything that the devil would rail against us. Help us to understand that Your Name, Jesus is a Strong Tower, and those that You hve declared the righteous run into it and are saved. Open up our minds and our hearts, filling us with Your Assurance, and confidence that while “Weeping may endure for a moment, JOY IS COMING IN THE MORNING !” 4 You hare sworn by GODSELF that at The Name of Jesus, every knee must bow and every tongue confess that You are Lord!

Precious Lord, Grace Your children with hope-filled trust that You have committed Your Word towards us that no weapon that’s formed us shall ever prosper and except You allow it, no trouble, test or trial can come near us. We thank You for Your Providential Presence and Power to turn everything around to work in our favor and to bring about exuberant testimonies and praizes of Your Eternal Honor and Glory!

Holy Father, we thank You for hearing the hearts of those who have never trusted and accepted Your Son Jesus as Savior and Lord! We believe that Holy Spirit is quickening that stony heart with The Spirit of Godly-Repentance, allowing them to come, humbled by Your Lovingkindness, in obedience to Your call and they’re now receving Your Mercy and Grace to Save bringing them into a personal relationship with The Lord of Life. We pray now that as You lead and guide them to a local church, planting them inYour Vineyard, that they shall be taught and transformed by Your Word of Life to take their position in The Kingdom of Heaven!

Lord, we’re lifting up any one who has walked away from You for whatever reason, we ask You to put a “fresh COMMITTED YES” in the heart and mind of every backslider! Make today the day that they come back to You and 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 denying selfishness and above all else, determined to walk out the rest of their lives as a living testimony to Your Loving-Kindness that encourages all that they meet to seek to live this life to live again, eternally with You in Heaven!

Father, we’re lifting up our children, our children s’ children by faith right now, we abort and overrule every curse that’s been ordered against their lives, we cancel every plot and scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them! We commit them into Your Providential care, realizing With this Blessed Assurance that their steps and stops are being Divinely orchestrated by Your eyes, we speak long LIFE and declare The BLOOD OF JESUS and The PEACE OF GOD shall rule over their spirits, souls, minds and bodies; releasing The Spirit of Hope, Love, Holiness and Excellence to fulfill their God-ordained destiny as children of The Most High God!
Sweet Jesus, we lift up every apostles, bishop, pastors, preachers, teachers, evangelist, missionaries, deacon and every spiritual leader! We ask  You to encourage their hearts and strengthen their faith by manifesting miracles, signs and wonders for all those who are yet standing on The Wall proclaiming Your Word under the Anointing, Power and Conviction of Holy Spirit, proving to them that their labor is not in vain! Jesus, we’re trusting and believing You to Grace 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 deeply in love with You, trust wholly in and commit to live the rest of their lives serving You!
Father, remember everyone who’s bodies are being afflicted by all manner of sicknesses and diseases! Heavenly Father, because Your Word decrees that You are Alpha and Omega, the same yesterday, today and forever, therefore, even as You walked this earth healing all who were sick, feeble and lame we know that You’re Well Able to do the same right now! Your Word declares that BY YOUR STRIPES WE HAVE BEEN REDEEMED AND HEALED! THEREFORE WE  YET STAND ON YOUR PROMISE THAT THE PRAYER OF FAITH SHALL SAVE THE SICK AND RAISE THEM UP,  In Jesus Name! Amen 3x!

Father, we pray for those who are distraught by grief, sorrow, terror and fear, the elderly, the widows, the outcast who have born the heat of the day, those who pushed and prayed us through! Father, give them sweet peace. Assure them  that You shall not forget how they labored unselfishly down thru the hears, oftimes without recognition, but that You shall reward them richly in the world to come!

Father we decree that every demonic-induced spirit of addiction and fear 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!

Lord Jesus, we’re standing on Your Word trusting that You shall never relinquish one iota of Your Sovereignty, The government of this world STILL rests upon Your shoulders and that You are The Eternal King of Kings and Lord of Lords!  Jesus, as we walk through the valleys of the shadow of death, cover us in Your BLOOD! We know that because of this crooked and perverted nation, the safest place yet remains in THE WILL OF GOD! Father, heal our land!

Sweet Holy Spirit, 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! We thank you Father that as we walk through this day, depending solely upon You for whatever lies ahead, we shall continue to give You all the Praise!

As we offer this prayer to our Great High Priest, 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, supplications and received our prayer as a sweet savor coming up before Your Sovereign Throne of Grace and Mercy!

Abba Father, in closing, we thank You NOW, for WE believe that IT IS FINISHED! 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 THEM JUS AS MUCH AS HE LOVES EVERYBODY!

SELAH!

MORNING GLORAAA

ETERNAL TRUTHS!

 

Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest, O Lord, and teachest him out of thy law; 13 That thou mayest give him rest from the days of adversity, until the pit be digged for the wicked.14 For the Lord will not cast off his people, neither will he forsake his inheritance.

15 But judgment shall return unto righteousness: and all the upright in heart shall follow it. 

16 Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity? 17 Unless the Lord had been my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence. 18 When I said, My foot slippeth; thy mercy, O Lord, held me up. 19 In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul. 20 Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law?21 They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood. 22 But the Lord is my defence; and my God is the rock of my refuge. 23 And he shall bring upon them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; yea, the Lord our God shall cut them off.

Psalm 94:12-23

The enemy seeks to obliterate God’s people. The evildoers target the most vulnerable groups in society, whom the LORD will defend. God will discipline those He loves, correcting and instructing them to bring them back into relationship with Him. God recognizes humanity/s inherent weaknesses. Corrupt rulers enact legislation that persecutes the righteous an enables wickedness, which is CLEARLY contrary to God’s Will! (Excerpts from Ps. 94:5-23 Study Bible, KJV)

“If you’ll hold on to me for dear life,” says God, “I’ll get you out of any trouble. I’ll give you the best of care if you’ll only get to know and trust me. Call me and I’ll answer, be at your side in bad times; I’ll rescue you, then throw you a party. I’ll give you a long life, give you a long drink of salvation!” Psalm 91:14-16 The Message

 

REST ASSURED, 4 JUSTICE IS ON ITS WAY! GOD PROTECTS W HAT THE WICKED WOULD DESTROY! BLESSED BE GOD 4EVER & ALWAYS!

NEVER 4GOTTEN; NEVER 4SAKEN!

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 
James 4:7

 
Yep! Ain’t no getting around it, because it’s still The Eternal Word of God, huh? I’m talking about that pesty-provoking-pressure-on-our-pleasure, five letter word “pride”! As the ol’ skool preacher would say, ‘I jus lost ¾ of my church’! LOL!

Those of us who’ve been saved more than 25 years undoubtedly have seen subtle (and not so subtle) transitions taking place in the Christian Community!  I’m referring to the greater emphasis being levied on the side of accumulating creature comforts rather than developing Christian character#Don’tshoutmedownnah!

While, there’s no denying that our Heavenly Father delights in the prosperity of His children, He distinctly distinguishes His Prosperity Plan from the system of this world, by including ‘even as your soul prospers, huh? (Ref. 3 John 1:2)

Of course, we know that God’s Ways are not ours and we’re eternally grateful that His thoughts are not like our, huh? Yet, many a wandering wayfaring person has been drawn down to the altar, enticed by the lure of a prolific prophetic preacher, promising peace and prosperity. Although this message has elements of doctrinal truth, upon closer examination,  oftimes it can dilute the integrity of basic biblical foundation! Hence, leaving some believers with lop-side expectations and ill-prepared to walk out their journey of faith.

The New Millennium Church has adapted to The Burger King mentality that says, ‘If I can’t have it my way, then I’ll hit the highway’! While that attitude may work at a fast-food chain, it won’t get you off the run-way in the Kingdom of God. The last time I caught a breath, Jesus was still LORD! Therefore, He has the right to expect loyalty, faithfulness, commitment and obedience from those He created!

God knows that it’s difficult for flesh to be humble! That’s why HE put these flesh-killing scriptures in The Book! Yall know, flesh wants to set up its own kingdoms and not submit to anything or anyone. Flesh wants to dominate; to be in charge; have its own way; be right; be the best and not ever admit that ‘I’m wrong, not perfect, it’s my fault; I need help, forgiveness…or I don’t know what to do!

Flesh wants folk to come to us; look up to us; be admired and yes even envied! Flesh wants to be first in line following the Apostle, Bishop and the Pastors. Flesh wants to sit on the front row so it can be noticed—to go higher, IN THE LORD, of course!

We like to quote the scripture, ‘resist the devil and he’ll flee from you’, right? However, more often than not, we leave out the first part, ‘submit yourself to GOD...and then you’ll have the power to resist the devil’! OMG, does it really say dat? Indeed! In the Kingdom, the way up is down!

God says, ‘humble yourself’BUT–IF YOU CAN’T, HE WILL HELP YOU! Chances are He’ll raise up a devil, a situation, a problem, a need, a national threat, a global economic collapse! Sometimes, He’ll allow trouble to come knocking at your front door, your church, job, wallet to get your attention long enough for you to humble yourself and have to pray! God knows that as long as we’re living high-on-the-hogwe’re prone to spiritual amnesia and assume that He’s okay playing second fiddle! NOT!

The Kingdom of Heaven has it’s own stimulus plan and it ain’t about to change! The strength and power of God’s Covenant relationship with His people is based on both  parties involved doing what they’ve sworn to do. The position of GOD is permanently filling space and time! Remember, HE IS GOD & U R NOT!

It’s a highway to Heaven, however you’ve got to be willing to take the low road 2 get there! As we yield our ENTIRE lives to GOD’ S WILL, WE SHALL REAP THE KING’S ETERNAL REWARDS! #FAITHFUL OBEDIENT GRATITUDE  #DIDJAHEARDAT? YEP! THAT’S THE PATH TO GLORAAAA!

THE BENEFITS OF OBEDIENCE!

THE BENEFITS OF OBEDIENCE

SELAH DEVOTIONS!

 

For the wicked boasteth of his heart’s desire, and blesseth the covetous, whom the Lord abhorreth. The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts. Psalm 10:3-4
He hath said in his heart, I shall not be moved: for I shall never be in adversity. His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and fraud: under his tongue is mischief and vanity. Psalm 10:6-7

“Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me.”But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth? Seeing thou hatest instruction, and casteth my words behind thee. ..These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes. Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver. Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth his conversation aright will I shew the salvation of God.” Psalm 50:15-17, 21-23

 

I know that a lot of folk prefer to escape THE Truth in favor of the opinions of  the self-proclaimed ‘geniuses’ of this world’s culture, who ascribe to the more palatable theory of “no absolutes”! Nonetheless, the rest of us who have lived on both sides of The Cross, have concluded adamantly, “Let EVERY MAN BE A LIAR, AND GOD BE THE TRUTH! Okay,  as one of my favorite ol’ skool Preachers loves to say, “Nah, run down the aisle on dat!”

TRUTHBTOLD, everyday we’re faced with more and more evidence that the ideology of this present world is destined for a direct-hit collision with the reality that there is a SUPER BEING WHO IS, WAS AND WILL FOREVER BE in ABSOLUTE CONTROL OF THE COURSE OF THE PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE OF ALL OF HIS CREATION, INCLUDING HUMANITY! BELIEVETH THOU THIS? #ijs!!!!

While this truth is often disputed by those who favour the more liberating “I’m the Master of my own fate” persuasion, THERE YET REMAINS A REMNANT OF US WHO ARE FULLY PERSUADED THAT there will be no atheist in Hell!  #Don’t shout me down nah!!!

Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools. (Romans 1:21-22)

The arrogance of wickedness goes deeper than absolute unbelief! Rooted in the folly of his own imagination is the concept that God isn’t paying attention to what people are doing, therefore he’s getting away with every and anything his own evil heart desires! In other words, they foolishly assume that there ARE NO CONSEQUENCES 2 PAY! #WOW!

TRUST2KNO, nothing EVRRR catches GOD by surprise!The Ancient of Days watches patiently, examining and knowing the hearts of mankind, knows them that are HIS! God is not moved nor is He mocked by those who offer up lip service but have no intention of honoring His commands with faithful obedience!
However, those of us who yet cling to THE WORD, as if our very life depends upon HIM, have the Blessed Assurance that as we walk daily surrendering our hearts, minds and actions to the Righteous Commands of a Holy Heavenly Father, have an ETERNALHOPE that reaches far beyond this world!

When we find ourselves in the middle of trouble, we call upon Our Faithful Friend Who hears us and responds with Deliverance, Righteousness, Security, Peace, Fulfillment and Joy…GUARANTEEING VICTORY, BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY, FOR US AND GREATER GLORY FOR HIS NAME SAKE! #SERIOUSLY!

 
BUT FOR THE WICKED, WHO CHOOSE 2 FORGET GOD OR CHANGE HIS UNCORRUPTABLE GLORY 2 REFLECT THE IMAGE OF CORRUPTABLE MAN , IT IS NOT SO! HE REBUKES THEM AND LAUGHS AT THEIR DESTRUCTION! “but the Lord laughs at the wicked, for he sees that his day is coming. (Psalm 37:13)

I know ‘it ain’t none of my business’, U gotta right to live anyway U wanna, right? #ijs…THERE ARE BENEFITS 4 OBEDIENCE! #ETERNAL LIFE! #NOW&LATER!

THURSDAYS’ PRAYERS!

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

GOOD MORNING FAMILY!  GOTTA MOMENT? OOOH GLORRAAAA!

Thankya for joining us in our Weekly Thursdays’ Day of Corporate Prayer and Fasting. The Bible encourage us to pray without ceasing and we certainly have much to bring before The Throne of our Great High Priest today! As we turn our hearts Heavenward, we come thanking Him for the privilege bestowed upon us to enter into His Presence fully persuaded that He is Able and Willing to perfect all things that concern us! Shall we  worship HIM?

There’s a sweet, sweet Spirit in this place, And I know that it’s the Spirit of the Lord; There are sweet expressions on each face, And I know they feel the presence of the Lord. Sweet Holy Spirit, Sweet heavenly Dove, Stay right here with us, filling us with Your love. And for these blessings we lift our hearts in praise; Without a doubt we’ll know that we have been revived, When we shall leave this place! Let’s pray…

Our Father and our God of Heaven and Earth, we come before You, humbled by Your Loving-Kindness, Grace and Mercy! We’re eternally grateful for one more opportunity to behold The Glory of Your Presence! We thank You for opening the eyes of our understanding and revealing to us  The Glory of Your Love through the Face of our Lord Jesus Christ! We know that  this is The Day that You have made, therefore we must  cherish this day and not take it for granted as if we have a right to live! Because of Your Sacraficial Love, we now live, move and have our being! We come with our  hearts rejoicing, hands uplifted  and our lips forever praizing You! You Alone are The One Who strengthens, empowers and gives us the wherewithal to do what You’re calling us to do! Oh, how awesome are Your deeds! For You have preserved our lives and kept our feet from slipping!

Abba Father, You are such a Great God and an Awesome Deliverer! Thank You for interrupting our lives and giving us a new testimony! We know that if it had not been for Jesus, our enemy would’ve destroyed our very lives, leaving us hopeless and helpless. But because of the Love You had for The Father, Jesus, You were willing to sacrifice The Glory of Heaven and come down, take on the feeble tabernacles of human flesh, suffering the same temptations, yet refusing to sin, unselfishly enduring the shame of The Cross, humbly surrendering to death, hell and the grave, opening up the Way to Salvation to any who will sincerely ask of Your Grace! We will forever give Your Name the praise for counting us worthy to be called Sons of God thereby changing our narrative!

Sweet Holy Spirit, we stand in faith, declaring today we are redeemed! We are free from the power and penalty of Satan, past, present and future sin, soul hurts, unjust mishandling, mistreatments, disappointments and rejections.  By Your Grace, we choose to forgive our perpetrators and walk in the authority and anointing  You given us to do and be everything You are calling for in this day. It’s according to Your Word, that we go forward, walking circumspectly and claiming our inheritance! You have called, appointed, directed us to walk in the right path! We’re hidden behind the Cross therefore we rise up in the same Resurrection Power that raised Jesus from the dead!

Precious Lord, we thankya for the fresh Words of Truth and the imputation of a new anointing, as we continue to move forward fearlessly courageous, trusting and relying upon The Power and Might of The True and Living God! Because Your Word has instructed us to lean not unto our understanding, but in all of our ways, or situations to acknowledge You, we submit our spirits,  souls, minds and bodies to You, giving thanks to You for giving us the Spirit of Love, Power and a Sound-Mind! In Jesus Name! Amen 3x!

Heavenly Father, because no man can come to the Father except You draw them, we interceded on behalf of every unsaved soul! Lord, please quicken the Spirit of Godly-repentance in their heart and in their mind that they will come today confessing a “SINCERE YES” to Your Grace Gift and receive You as their personal Lord and Savior! We’re believing that You will direct their footsteps and place them and settle them into a church home today where they will learn Your Ways and Will for our lives that we may meet You in Peace.

Lord, we ask You to put a fresh “COMMITED YES” in the heart and mind of every backslider and let today be the day that they come back to You and come back to YOUR local church where they will be embraced with acceptance and love, willingly submitting their lives to the sound teachings of Your Word, and learn to love and live their lives walking to please You First!

Father, as You know, so many of our family members and friends are being afflicted in their bodies, minds and spirits. We pray for all those who are in need of healing, Lord they do want to be healed! Touch our brother, touch our sister, bind, rebuke and cast out every symptom and disease at the root, for Your Name Sake! We’re lifting up all those who’re afflicted by every form of cancer, including blood, liver, kidney, brain, cervical, pancreatic, bladder, breast cancer! Lord, shrink every cyst, every growth, heal rheumatoid arthritis, MS, dementia, Alzheimer, drug addiction, Autism and every kind of mental disorders!

Heavenly Father, as You have decreed, 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, Therefore we celebrate the testimonials that are going forth declaring Your miraculous healings now, In Jesus Name! Amen 3x!

 

Sweet Jesus, as we lift up our children, grand-children and great-grand children, help us to remember that such were some of us! By faith, we decree and declare that every scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them, IS HEREBY SUDDENLY CANCELLED, and RECOILED! As we commit them into Your Providential Care, we acknowledge that because Your Plan and Purpose for their lives cannot be over-ruled, we have the blessed assurance that EVERY STEP AND STOP IS BEING ORDERED UNDER THE WATCHFUL CARE OF YOUR EYES AND NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST THEM SHALL PROSPER AND EVERYTHING THAT PERTAINS TO THEIR DESTINY OF LIFE AND GODLINESS IS FULLFILLED! 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-ORDAIN DESTINIES, IN JESUS NAME IT IS SO!

 

Holy Father, we lift up every spiritual leader, Apostle, Bishop, Overseer, Pastor, Elder, Preacher, Teacher, Superintendent, Evangelist, Missionary, Deacon and Deaconess who are yet standing on the wall proclaiming Your Word under the power, conviction and anointing of Holy Spirit! Lord, touch Your  shepherds, show them how to reach and touch Your people, teach them to lead the people and give them clarity of vision! For You’ve told us that without a Vision the people perish! We pray for Your Vision and not ours! We’re askingYou to release an immediate manifestation of that special miracle that they’re believing You for! Cover them as they go in and out amongst Your people with honor, wisdom and favor! All who would seek to discredit, hinder and even destroy their faith, faithfulness and the GOD-ORDAINED ministry shall be rebuked and restrained by The Power of Holy Spirit. In Jesus Name!

Holy Spirit, we lift up every auxiliary leader, musician, choir, praise team, usher, nurse and lay member, trusting and believing that You will Grace them to be the Godly examples 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! 

We pray for all the saints, those who are in contentious situations in the land, in our churches, our homes and our communities. We bind the Spirit of Exclusion and release the Spirit of Oneness that affirms that Your people are living witnesses that The Lord our God is One God.  Help us to build up and not tear down one another. We Thankya for the Empowering Spirit of Agreement and the Promised Blessing resting upon those who are unified before You!  

 

Lord, we’re praying for the arrogant, selfish, self-aggrandizing, men and women who are depending upon themselves and neglecting Your Righteous standards for each life! Reveal Yourself to them in dreams and visions! Reverse the hatred, and bigotry in this land. Help us as we continue to pray for the White House, Congress, Senate and every government/legislative/corporate leaders of our nation and the world!

 

Heavenly Father, asking that You visit them in the night with dreams and visions, letting them know that You, O God never sleep or slumber, warn them that Your Eyes are going to and fro searching the hearts, minds and motives of all who have been given Power and Authority over Your people. Convict them that they shall be held accountable for every deed and decision that they make; Impress upon their spirits that, He who digs a hole and scoops it out will fall into the pit he has made and the trouble he causes recoils on himself and his violent schemes will come down on his own head! In Jesus Name! Amen 3x!

Sweet Holy Spirit,  endow the hearts of  Your people as we walk out our transitions into new chapters of visions with clarity to discern Your Will, Purpose and Plans for our lives! Bless us to be blessings to all those whom You have assigned to our lives. Fill every heart with the confident expectation that our times are in Your Hands and that regardless of the deceitfulness of this world, You have promised to prove, protect, provide and preserve the righteous who trust and obey Your Word!

Continue to open the eyes of our understanding that we are not easily deceived nor distracted by demonic-induced Spirits of temptation, addiction, oppression, depression, rejection, self-hate, suicide, fear and failure, assigned to entrap us in bondage to that which You have delivered us from AND EMPOWER US STAND FREE IN THE LIBERTY THAT YOU HAVE ALREADY ACQUIRED FOR US BY THE SHEDDING OF YOUR SACRAFICAL BLOOD!

Precious Lord, as we close this prayers, confidently trusting that all workers of iniquity are trembling and suddenly departing in shameful defeat because of Your  Burden-Bearing, Yoke-Destroying Anointing that’s being released right now!

Receive our praise to You Father, from hearts fully persuaded that because You have heard the voice of our weeping, our supplications and received our prayers as sweet savor coming up before Your Sovereign Throne of Grace and Mercy, every supplication, petition inquiry, concern will be answered according to Your Will, for our highest good and Your Greatest Glory! According to Your Holy Word, we know that no good thing will You withhold from those who strive to walk upright before You and we Glorify You Name Forever!
Abba Father, we shall continue embracing You, in obedient reverence, bowing before The Hope of all the earth, believing that as Your face shines upon us, You Who Guides and Rules Justly over The Circle of The Earth, is making Your Will, Your Ways and Your Salvation known among all nations! We honor and praise You now, believing that In The Exalted Name of Jesus it is done! Amen 3X and It Is So!

SELAH!

For this is the day that You have made and we shall continue to rejoice and be glad in it! We know that it’s only because of Your Loving-Kindness that we are yet here in the land of the living. We bless You for You alone are worthy of all the gloraaa! U alone are worthy of all the praiz! For there is and never shall be NONE LIKE YOU!

As we come into Your Presence, we bow in humility at Your Awemazing Grace; that You continue to pour out upon us! Only You can look beyond our faults and yet minister compassionately to satisfy every need and desire! Your Unfailing Love flows daily to the just and the unjust alike! For through the ages there’s yet a universal cry coming up to Your ears that acknowledges, ‘IF IT HAD NOT BEEN FOR THE LORD ON OUR SIDE, OUR ENEMIES WOULD HAVE SWALLOWED US UP’!

FATHER, hear us as we proclaim, ‘HALLELUJAH TO THE LAMB OF GOD’!

Sweet Holy Spirit, we’re eternally grateful that You welcome and encourage each of us to seek a personal, intimate, intense and effective relationship with The Triune GOD! For it is in You that we live, move, breath and having our being! For You are the source of all that we are and ever hope to be. Father, we repent now for every and anything that we’ve done, thought and said that failed to come up to Your Holy Will, statutes and purpose for our lives. Wash us over again in The Blood of Your Son, Jesus that we might be cleansed from our iniquities. Restore our covenant relationship for You are our Righteousness, Redeemer and our King!

Let the prayers of the righteous prevail and let everything and anything that our enemies bring against us scatter. Father, we thank You for what You are about to do that is exceedingly, abundantly above all that we can ask or image. For You are our Joy, for You have given us Love, Power and a Sound-mind. We thank You for the contentment that flows from Godly-repentance; we thank You for being a Very Present Help In troubling times! We thank You for strength, goodness, kindness, mercy and grace to preserve us that patience may yield it’s perfect fruit of righteousness in and through us!
We thank You Heavenly Father, that we do not look like what we’ve been through! Thankya for never leaving us or forsaking us through the temptations, test, trauma and drama, the good and the bad, the dark days and sleepless nights You stayed right there by our side letting us know that You Love us! Sweet Jesus, You are a Wonder in my soul! You are Alpha and Omega, The King WHO CAN NEVER BE ignored, dismissed or DE-throned! For You are King of kings and Lord of lords!
Abba Father, we thankya for everything You brought us out of, for every time You put us on the wheel in order to mold, make and shape us according to Your Will. We believe that because Your Ways are higher than ours, Your Thoughts are beyond our finite comprehension, that You are always leading and guiding our steps and our stops, assuring safe passage from glory to glory! We trust that while none of us enjoy suffering, weeping endures for a night but JOY does come in the morning!

 

Father, we lift up our brother, our sister whose body has been afflicted by all manner of sickness and disease, touch them from the crown of their heads to the soles of their feet, rebuking and commanding that every tissue, muscle, blood vessel and organ be restored to it’s proper function! As You walked this earth healing all who were sick, feeble, lame we know that You’re Well Able to do the same right now! 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!

Abba, we ask that You encourage and comfort the souls of Your Elect who are overwhelmed with fear, distraught by grief, doubt and worry because of the things that are going on in our personal lives and in this ungodly world systems! Preserve us thru every test and trial; keeping us constantly aware of OMNIPRESENCE, fully-confident that all trouble does have an expiration date and that at Your appointed time, You will bring them out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and with the reward as You have promised them in Your Word.

 

Precious Lord, remember the elderly, the widows, the abused, the downcast, the outcast, all those who have born the heat of the day, those who pushed and prayed us through! And as You are strengthening these, we ask that you also invigorate, encourage and replenish the spirits, minds and bodies of those who are charged to care for their loved ones! Send Assurance that we are never alone, and never without Your Very Present Help!

Dear Lord, we believe that as we praise and Glorify Your Name, everything else MUST come subject to Beautiful, Healing and Victorious Name of JESUS! We decree and declare that at The Name of Jesus, every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that JESUS IS LORD over, in and through all! Even as we lift up Your Name, You are calming all our fears, soothing all our doubts and solving all of our problems.

Sweet Holy Spirit, because no man can come to the Father except You draw them, we thank You for hearing the hearts of those who have never trusted and accepted Your Son Jesus as Savior and Lord! Quicken that stony heart now with a ‘SINCERE REPENTING YES’ that they shall come to You humbled by Your Lovingkindness, in obedience to Your call and receive Your Mercy and Grace to Save. We pray now that You are leading and guiding them to the local church, planting 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.

Lord, we ask You to put a “COMMITTED YES” in the heart and mind of every backslider! 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!

Abba Father,  we lift up our children, our Grand/Great-Grand-children and by faith, we abort and overrule every curse that’s been ordered against their lives, canceling every scheme 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 every step and stop is being ordered 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, we’re asking and believing for immediate manifestation of that special miracle for  all those who are yet standing on the wall proclaiming Your Word under the  Power, conviction and anointing of Holy Spirit. Jesus, we’re trusting and believing You to Grace 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 for and thanking You for the government/legislative/judicial/corporate/education, healthcare/public service, military,, police, fire department, every aviation and every transportation worker and leaders of our nation! Heavenly Father, we’re believing 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.

We thank You for forgiving us and saving us from us! We thank You for interrupting our Adamic DNA by infusing The Precious, Perfect, Sacrificial, Atoning, Substitutionary Blood of Jesus, that completely eradicates and renders null and void every curse, sin, spirit of iniquity, perversion, poverty, sickness and disease that may be lying dormant in our bodies and hearts, releasing us from the power, penalties and punishment of our ancestors. We thank You for giving us the authority to speak life to every dead situation and bind, frustrate tiredness, weariness and release strength, prosperity, Divine Health, Increased Wealth and Wholeness in every area of our Being! FOR WE TRUST AND BELIEVE THAT HE WHOM THE SON SETS FREE IS FREE IN DEED!

We Thank You Holy Spirit for the Divine Impartation of a second wind that is now swelling up in our spirits, minds, souls and bodies, that’s not only changing every adverse situation that we’re facing but is also changing us for the better, empowering us to live the GOOD, ABUNDANT LIFE that You purchased for us! We thank You for the fresh anointing that’s falling from the crown of our heads to the soles of our feet, casting down all ungodly imagination, destroying every yoke, lifting every burden, empowering and equipping us to fulfill our God-Ordained assignments. We thank You Heavenly Father for the Spirit of Excellence that glorifies Your Name. We thank You for the confident Hope that YOU ARE WATCHING OVER YOUR WORD AND WILL PERFORM EVERYTHING THAT YOU HAVE SPOKEN OVER OUR LIVES!

Dear Lord, 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 Will, Ways and Salvation known among all nations; for You Guide and Rule justly! We thank You now, believing that it is done! In The Exalted Name of Jesus we seal our prayer with a spirit-inspired Hallelujah! 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 AND CARES FOR EVERYBODY!

SELAH!
