ACTIVATE THE GOD IN YOU

 

ACTIVATE THE GOD IN U

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

Christ in you, the hope of glory. Colossians 1:27.

Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 1:13
Dual Citizenship! WOW! Living in this world yet at the same time recognizing that we’re aliens of another Kingdom, occupying this place in time as carriers of The Glory until the return of Jesus Christ, The King is absolutely-mind-blowingly-awemaazin, huh?

Sometimes, life comes at us so hard and so fast that we lose consciousness of the core of our faith—Truth—exposing our hearts to potentially being ripped betwixt two realities! Hence, the sacred confident heritage of the saints is often disrupted by the intrusive presence of aggravating adverse circumstances!

Now, don’t get it twisted! I’m not suggesting that we forget we’ve been called and chosen to be instruments of righteousness at The Lord’s bidding. Hopefully, most of us have long since gotten past that issue and believe with all our hearts that one day we will live eternally in Heaven with our Father. BUT! !!! It’s the meantime that keeps tripping us up! C’mon nah! Don’t look at me with that tone of voice! Y’all already know how our frail-flawed-fickle, self-centered-fleshy-nature keeps drawing us back to the ol’ days when we sat on The Throne of our hearts, making decisions and judgments according to what seemed right in our own minds! Can I getta real Amen?

Remember when that ol’ man had nothing to restrain us from focusing all our time, thoughts and energy on getting whatever we wanted, whenever we thought we needed? We were clueless that we were actually being used by rulers of darkness, hell bent on pulling us away from The Omnipresence, Omniscience, Omnipotence Creator and driving us head first into a sink hole of fear, discouragement, hopelessness and failure!

YEP! We were oblivious to the enemy’s wicked schemes strategically designed to entrap us; besieging our minds with his ticker-tape alerts forecasting the high probability of hurricane wind gusts, overcast skies of dread, gloom and doom! Unfortunately, far too many of us are completely unaware of Satan’s devices and actually come into agreement with him; setting the course for fulfillment of the very thing we fear! WOW! #Didjaheardat?

When we surrender to our fears, we give validity to them thereby proving Lucifer, The Father of Lies, to be a true prophet! That is until Holy Spirit quickens us our carnal minds and reminds us that when we accept The Saving Grace of Jesus Christ, we’re no longer obligated or enslaved to obey our former Task Master! When we come to ourselves, purposing our hearts to acknowledge The Greater One abiding in us, we have the power to slam the devil down to his rightful place (under our feet)!

Beloved, Trust2kno, when YOU truly believe GOD, you’re supernaturally empowered to over-rule the demonic influences and activate God’s spiritual weaponry that renders the Tormentor virtually helpless and hopelessly defeated! By commanding our minds to think of the Goodness of Jesus and all that He has done, continues to do and promises to do—the Joy of The Lord swells up in our hearts, illuminating our thoughts, erupting inevitable praise! Suddenly, The Glory of His Presence shows up filling our hearts and minds with a peace that passes all understanding! (Ref. 2 Corinthians 10:4 and Philippians 4:7)

Precious ones, the next time that lying devil tries to steal your hope, don’t fall for it, jus throw THE ROCK at him and THINK YOURSELF HAPPY WITH PRAISE!

Try this on for size, “devil, I will bless the LORD at ALL times, His praise shall continually be in my mouth!” (Ps. 34:1) Then pick up another ROCK and seal the victory!“Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.” (Ps. 16:11)

YEAH BABY, #ijs! Datz ACTIVATING THE GOD IN U! #BOOMUPSIDEURHEAD

THRIVE!

THRIVE 2

SELAH Daily Devotions!

Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. Galatians 5:1 KJV

If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. John 8:36 KJV

A thief is only there to steal and kill and destroy. I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of. John 10:10 The Message

 

 SMH!!!!  Coming into another dimension of Revelation of the ‘almost too good to be true’ Gospel of Jesus Christ, my only appropriate response is shaking my head in wonder-filled absolute amazement!  I’m not a novice to this thing we call ‘Salvation’, by no means. I’ve been saved for more than thirty years! Yet, I’m almost embarrassed to admit it; nevertheless, for most of my walk with Christ, I’ve struggled secretly imprisoned by guilt and shame for sins I have committed. And I’m not just talking about those B.C. (before Christ). I’m talking about the since I’ve been saved stuff too! 

Just in case someone else out there knows what I’m talking about, I feel an urging in my spirit, compelling me to put myself out on blast just to let you know that there’s Hope for you also, and it’s “IN” Christ Jesus!

Now, don’t get it twisted!  I’m not trying to push the blame off on somebody else. I’m just acknowledging that for whatever reason I adapted a sense of ‘performance-based-legalism’ that followed me right into Christianity! Do good, get good—do bad, get bad!  This kind of thinking just about seals the deal—you’re doomed for failure and defeat, desolation and destruction because there’s no wiggle-room for our innately flawed human characteristics. You lie because you are a liar, you steal because you are a thief; you sin because you were born a sinner!

The Devil’s had a very long time to master deception and manipulation. Frankly,  he’s become quite proficient in using us against us! He cloaks his best handiwork in fostering our ‘self-righteousness, self-degradation and ultimate self-rejection’! Yall know how he just loves to throw a rock and hide his hand. Unfortunately there’s little need to change his tactics, after all, it still works!

TRUTHBTOLD, on our ‘bestest’ days, we still aren’t good enough to somehow deserve God’s Grace! BUT! That’s what’s so Great about Salvation! Even if we could, by accident, done some ‘right’ act it never would’ve equaled out all of the ‘wrong’ acts we’ve committed.

That’s why God sent Jesus!

God knew the first plan was not and never could work—because ‘they just don’t have it in them’! In Hebrews 10:18 Jesus said it something like this…”this new covenant will not be written on tablets of stone, but ‘I’m writing it in their hearts and in their minds’! Father, prepare me A Body… I, The Righteous One, will come to live in them and will empower them to become righteous and do right things the right way!

OMG, SMH…AGAIN! Didjaheardat?

It ain’t about ‘you’ it’s all about ‘JESUS’!!!

Beloved, it’s time to shut the devil down! How? By taking God at HIS WORD! Hence, God paid an hefty price to deliver our souls from the debt of sin! Don’t belittle the Sacrafice on the altar of false humility, self-pity, self-exclusion, as if it’s an act of penance!  Now, I mean no disrespect, we’re always to be grateful for every blessing God has bestowed upon us, howevvrrr, it’s not enuff to be content with ‘survival’ when God intended for us to live this life to the fullest, exceedingly, abundantly, above and beyond any and everything we could every deserve! Hence, GOD wants us to THRIVE! That’s what causes those who’ve yet to receive HIM as Savior and Lord to take a closer look at The Christ In U and begin to envy the Glory of your Heavenly Father resting upon your life! #ijs!

Hence, why keep trying to earn something that God’s already given you for free? Just accept Jesus’ unmerited Love and Loyalty by living  your life to the fullest every day in HIM!

That’s what it means to be ‘BORN AGAIN’ …saved and set free! THAT’S THE REAL BLESSING…I’M NO LONGER OBLIGATED TO FULFILL OTHER’S LIMITATIONS OF WHO I AM, WHAT I’M WORTH AND WHAT I CAN ACHIEVE! YEP, I CAN LIVE FREE! NO MORE CHAINS HOLDING ME!

When we place our personal confident trust not in ‘self’ –not in what we can’t do to earn such Amazing Grace—BUT IN WHAT JESUS CHRIST HAS ALREADY DONE, WE’RE FREE—TO BE, DO, HAVE and ENJOY EVERYTHING HE PURPOSED 4 US B4 THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD! IN OTHER WORDS–THRIVE!  YES…THRIVE!

PERSISTANCE PREVAILS!

PERSISTANCE PREVAILS2

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair, persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed—always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. 2 Corinthians 4:8-10

For our light affliction which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory… 2 Corinthians 4:17-18a

 

Someone, with far more wisdom than you and I, penned these words, “Winners never quit, and quitters never win!” Granted, we’re living in times that could easily tempt us to just fall apart, succumb to our dire situations and even begin to doubt God‘s ability to turn things around in our favor. Yet, Jesus never told us to rely on what we think, we see or even what we feel. The Word admonishes us to put no confidence in flawed fickle flesh, particularly our own. Believers walk by faith and not by what it may look like in the natural. Believers believe!

When the enemy comes upon us flooding our hearts with intimidating fear, worry, doubt and discouragement, we must not ALLOW it to reign, but we remember that we, as Born-Again, Blood-Washed-Baptized-Spirit-filled Children of The Most High God, have been empowered to pull down strongholds and bring every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ!  (Ref. 2 Corinthians 10:5) When we acknowledge WHO WE ARE, IN CHRIST, a Spirit of Super Tenacity, and Holy Boldness, begins to flow up from the pit our inner most being and when it kicks inTRUST2KNO, it really doesn’t matter what we go thrua true believer will refuse to throw up our hands and give in! 

The Ol’ Skool Churrch used to say, “COME WHAT MAY, I’M IN IT, 2 WIN IT”! You see they knew something that’ll  still work in this new millennium Age—I don’t care who sanngs,  OUR God Reigns, therefore it ain’t over until God says it’s over! #Didjaheardat?

Beloved, when it appears that the circumstantial evidence against us pretty much guarantees we’re going down for the count, we have a secret weapon on the inside of us that assures us the victory! Greater is He that is in me than anything that comes against me! (1 John 4:4)

The Apostle Paul, encouraging a troubled Corinthian Church, lets us know we’re don’t have to deny the severity of our situation, we just deny it’s  power to work against us. (Ref. Isaiah 54:17) Didjaheardat? Yes, it’s okay to acknowledge what’s happening, but don’t just stop with the bad stuff,  BUT also keep in the forefront of your minds Who we have going right for us!

Okay, we might be feeling some pressure, but we’re still standing! We might not have all the answers, but we know The One who does! Our circumstances might not be what we expected, but God already knew about it before He allowed us to be in it! It may seem as if the burden is much more than we can take, but God’s Grace is sufficient! We might not know how long we’re be in it, but God knows! He’s predesignated a set time for our deliverance! And when God brings us out we don’t come out empty handed, but we come out with Greater Glory!

YEP! Believers may bend, but we don’t break! We hold fast to the Hope that is within us! (Ref. Colossians 1:27)

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Hebrews 4:12

BELOVED, DON’T STOP, ‘TILL YOU GET IT! GET IT?

Seriously!  Obviously Satan didn’t get the text, huh? So you tell ’em, ‘Ain’t nobody got time 4 dat; check the back of the Book, WE WIN! Ain’t NO QUIT In ME BCUZ PERSISTANCE ALWAYS PREVAILS!

WATCH & PRAY BUT DON'T COME DOWN

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

And I looked, and arose and said to the nobles, to the leaders, and to the rest of the people, “Do not be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, great and awesome, and fight for your brethren, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your houses.” …Wherever you hear the sound of the trumpet, rally to us there. Our God will fight for us.” Nehemiah 4:14, 20

 

In the midst of  the current chaos and drama of this ungodly world, some might be tempted to question God’s Presence and even more crucial, might be confused about His Concern! However, rest assured, nothing happens in the earth that will ever take God by surprise! Remember, it ain’t always what it looks like! God is ALWAYS UP 2 something! When it seems as if the world is falling apart, Holy Spirit reminds us that EVERYTHING IS FALLING RIGHT IN PLACE! GOD DOES HIS BEST WORK IN THE DARK! WOW!

Saints of The Living God, Holy Spirit is calling Zion to Higher ground! The spirit of intrepidation and intimidation emanating from the rulers of darkness in high places, is rampantly pursuing to annihilate the people of God’s Confidence, Peace and Joy in The Faithfulness of our Heavenly Father! But we, who have placed our personal faith, trust and hope in The Eternal Lord Jesus Christ, must remain vigilant, united in Spirit, discerning the times, armed and ready to fight rather than come down!

While there is a time for reconciliation, there is also a time for WAR! And God did not leave us empty-handed!  “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;” (2 Corinthians 10:4-5)

Beloved, we recognize that the struggle is real, howevrrr, IS ANYTHING 2 HARD 4 GOD? ABSOLUTELY NOT!

As the Scriptures admonishes, let us not be weary in well-doing as if we don’t have a GOD on OUR side! Instead, as we see the darkness encroaching, we must draw closer to The Light! “Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God. Colossians 3:16

Didjaheardat?

Children, let us keep our hearts tuned, listening for The Trumpet’s sound, calling us to rally at the Altar of Prayer and covering one another! Don’t allow the delusory maneuvers of the enemy to distract you from fulfilling your God-Ordained Purpose for being! STAY FOCUSED & FAITHUL!!! Hence, Be about OUR FATHER’S BUSINESS!

TRUST2KNO, OUR GOD WILL FIGHT 4 US! SO…WATCH & PRAY BUT DON’T COME DOWN! #TRUMPDAT?

GM FAM! GOTTA MOMENT? HALLELUJAHHHH!

 

We’re excited that you’ve joined us once again for our Weekly Thursday’s Corporate Prayer and Fasting! All those who truly believe that if U call on JESUS, HE WILL ANSWER are uniting in one accord! We know that we’re dealing with what the Scriptures define as  those ‘SOME THINGS’! Therefore we’re taking God at HIS WORD and lifting up all  who’re experiencing time-sensitive circumstances, depending solely upon THE GRACE OF GOD 2 perfect everything that’s accelerating doubt, causing us much concern and depleting our hope! Shall we pray?

 

Saviour, like a Shepherd lead us, Much we need thy tend’rest care; In thy pleasant pastures feed us, For our use thy folds prepare:Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus,Thou hast bought us, thine we are….THOU HAS BOUGHT US THINE WE ARE…O how I love the Name Jesus! O how I love the Name Jesus! IT IS THE SWEETEST NAME I KNOW…

 

Abba Father, it is with outstretched arms, open hearts filled with eternal gratitude, rejoicing in The Splendor and Magnificence of Your Glorious Presence, we come blessing Your Holy Name for allowing us to live 1 more day! It’s only because of Your Loving-Kindness, Grace and Mercy, that we’re yet here to live, breathe move  and have our being! As we enter into Your Throne Room, humbled by Your Ambiance, we bow in hope-filled earnest expectation that You will entreat us graciously as we pour out the burdens that seem to overwhelm our hearts today, releasing everything that concerns us to You,! Knowing that You are Omniscient, Omnipresent, You see and You already know everything about everyone of us, yet you have welcomed us to come to you, to find 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 born!

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!

Precious Lord, before we go any further, we’re asking You to forgive us for everything that we, your children, have willfully and 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, Heavenly 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, Jesus! With sincere praise , we yield our spirits, soul and bodies as empty vessels before You today, depending and relying only on You for renewed power, strength, wisdom and understanding!

Because no man can come to the Father except you draw them, we intercede on behalf of every unsaved soul, asking You to quicken the Spirit of Godly-repentance in their heart and in their mind that they will come to You today confessing a “sincere YES” to your gift of Grace and receiving You as their personal Lord and Savior! We’re believing that You will direct their footsteps, placing and settleling them into a church home where they will be loved, nurtured and taught the ways of righteousness to live the blessed lives that You have purchased through Your Sacrificial Atone Blood!

Heavenly Father, we ask You to put a fresh “committed YES” in the heart and mind of every backslider! Let today be 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 walking to please You First and provoking all who don’t know You to cry out “WHAT MUST I DO 2 BE SAVED” and to fall deeply in Love With You!

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!

Holy Father, we lift up every Bishop, Pastor, Overseer, Apostle, Evangelist, Preacher. Teacher, Missionary, auxiliary leader, usher, musician, choir member and director and church member! Undergird them with Your Anointing and conviction to carry out their assignment, under the direction of Holy Spirit. Cover them as they go in and out amongst Your people 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 restrainedby The Power of Holy Spirit. In Jesus Name!

As You have instructed, we pray for every leader of our nation and this world, be it federal and local government, legislative, corporate, judicial, education, public service, healthcare and financial institutions! We’re asking that You touch the minds and hearts of those that You’ve ordained for leadership for such a time as this! Lord speak to them in dreams and visions, reminding them that POWER BELONGS TO YOU Who Sit Enthroned Above the Heavens! Convict them that Your eyes are going to and fro throughout the whole earth, 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!

Abba Father, Your Word warns us that many are the afflictions of the righteous, therefore, Your children are not exempt from experiencing the troubles of this fallen ungodly systems of this world! Even knowing that man shall not live by Bread Alone but by every Word that proceeds from Your Mouth, yet, sometimes we are so overwhelmed by the noisy pestilence of this DECAYING world that we find ourselves walking in fear and not by faith! Nevertheless, clinging to Your Assurance that nothing happens in our lives except it’s cleared by You, we are fully persuaded that while weeping may endure for a nite, all trouble has an expiration date BUT JOY SHALL COME IN THE MORNING LIGHT!

HOWEVER, Your Faithful Power to deliver, heal and set us free  NEVER ENDS!  You have Sovereignly designated the exact moment of Divine Deliverance from all of life’s maladies, and Your children shall be rewarded double for our troubles, EMPOWERED with a burning testimony in our bellies to convince, encourage and convict those who we come into contact with that JESUS IS THE SAME, YESTERDAY, TODAY AND 4EVER!

We decree that every demonic-induced spirit of 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!

We lift up before You, the sick, shut-in, those who are grieving and mourning the death of family and friends, those whose lives are being tormented by fear, failure, unbelief, unforgiveness, doubt, anxiety, stress, mental disorder, hopelessness, shame and guilt, disappointment, rejection, broken marriages and relationships, ungodly soul ties, addictions and perverted sexual orientations! We rebuke and renounce every sickness, disease and all manner of afflictions!

By faith in THE POWER AND AUTHORITY OF THE NAME OF JESUS, we declare and decree immediate release of physical, mental, spiritual and financial healing to be manifested in the lives and bodies of Your elect! As God’s anointed, we stand in agreement that everything that does not align with Your Will shall bow, be bound and cast down immediately! We call everything in the atmosphere surrounding Your Chosen, into Divine Alignment now, In Jesus Name!

Father, we wait in confidence and quietness, rejoicing in hope and trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling and suddenly departing in fear and shame, turning their backs from Your people, because You have heard the voice of our weeping, our supplications and received our prayer as a sweet savor coming up before Your Sovereign Throne of Grace and Mercy!

Abba Father, we stand in agreement with You who hears ours prayers, forgives our transgressions, chosen and brought us near to live in Your House, are shouting with everlasting joy to The One to Whom all men will come! We’re owing in obedient reverence 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 Guide and Rule justly!

Believing that every  prayer, supplication and inquiry is being answered according to Your Holy Will,  we thank You NOW! In The Exalted Name of Jesus WE SAY Amen 3X and It Is So!

Now every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, SHOUT GLORRRAA AND GO TELL SOMEBODY THAT JESUS STILL LOVES AND CARES 4 EVERYBODY!

THURSDAYS’ PRAYERS!

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

Good Morning my Precious Blessed and Favored Ones! GOTTA MOMENT? AWESOME!!!

Didjakno, that the only reason you are able to read this post is because Our Heavenly Father has blessed you to be alive one more day? Yep! And for that, please join me in exalting The Glorious Name of Jesus! As is our custom on Thursdays, once again we, encourage you to join us in our weekly day of Corporate Prayer and Fasting! There are many sickly, weak, afflicted, ill-treated or faint of heart among us, therefore as James 5:13 instructs, let us utilize the honor and privilege afforded us by our Heaven Father!

 

WELCOME, INTO THIS PLACE! WELCOME INTO THIS BROKEN VESSEL! YOU DESIRE TO ABIDE IN THE PRAISES OF YOUR PEOPLE, SO WE LIFT OUR HANDS, AND WE LIFT OUT HEARTS AND WE OFFER UP THIS PRAISE UNTO YOUR NAME! WELCOME HOLY SPIRIT! WE ARE IN YOUR PRESENCE! FILL US WITH YOUR POWER…LIVE INSIDE OF ME! YOU’RE MY LIVING WATER, NEVERENDING FOUNTAIN! COMFORTER AND COUNSELOR, TAKE COMPLETE CONTROL…we bow down in HIS Presence…let’s pray…

 

Abba Father, it is with great joy that we entreat Thy Seat of Mercy today! Trusting confidently that You have afforded us this awesome privilege not because we deserve it, but based solely upon Your Loving-Kindness that continues to draw us into Your All Emcompassing Presence, we now come!

Sweet Jesus, we Thankya for Your commitment, to so  please The Heart of Your Father, that You willingly sacrificed Your Life in our stead, that we might become Sons of The True and Living God! And for this cause, we bow in humble gratitude, fully aware that  we come before You, empty and void of anything that would warrant such awesome graciousness, NEVERTHELESS because of Your Righteousness we are now beneficiaries of All that You are in the Eyes of the Creator of All Living things! OOOHHH GGLORRAAAA!
Father, we know that You already know everything about every single one of us, because You are Omniscient and Omnipresent, but since You walked among us, allowing Yourself to be tempted at all points as we are, You learned what we experience in these earthly tabernacles and because of Your personal experience, You now can be touched with the feelings of our infirmities! Therefore You are absolutely qualified and equipped to be our Great High Priest, able to intercede on our behalf, continuously searching and conveying the thoughts, intents, emotions and physical weaknesses that we’re often unable to articulate to The Father of All Grace and Comfort! We thankya Lord Jesus, for being our Very Present Help in troubling times!

Precious Lord, while we try to please You by trusting in Your Word with all of our hearts and minds, You know that sometimes, there’s a real struggle when we attempt to over-ride the noise of the pestilence, the chaos of uncertainty and the pain of condemnation, guilt, and shame that seems to lure us into the valleys shadowed with danger, fear, anger, bitterness, anxiety, hopelessness and self-doubt! That’s why we appreciate Your invitation and boldly run to You, daily, that we might find refuge, peace, strength and restoration that You have prepared for any who would come to You in hope-filled assurance that You will never deny Your Word!

Heavenly Father, we’re forever blessing You for continuing to pour out love, strength, wisdom, understanding and power as we open our hearts to You, depending and relying only on You. And as we lift our hands and our hearts yielded before You, remembering the glorious day when You quickened our hearts, lifting the veil allowing us to see Your Glory in the Face of our Precious Son, our Redeemer, Jesus Christ. Therefore, we gratefully ask that You do the same for those who are yet lost, blinded by the darkness of this world. Lord, we’re believing You to ignite a spirit of Godly-repentance in the hearts and minds of the unsaved, that they may confess “sincere YES”, provoking a desire to surrender their lives to You today and receive You as their personal Savior and Lord!

Lord, as we bow before You, we’re lifting up every backslider, believing You to put a“committed YES” in their heart and mind that this will be the day that they come back to You and come back to the local church that You’ve assigned them to, where they will be greeted with lovingkindness, nurtured in the Will and Ways of Your Word, dedicating the rest of their lives to glorifying You in these last and evil days to a lost and dying world!

Abba Father, as we pray, we ask that You touch our brother, touch our sister who is afflicted by any sickness and disease, including the spirit of cancer, kidney failure, heart and lung disease, diabetes, high/low blood pressure, those in need of transplants, those suffering from knee, back, hip and shoulder pain, we pray that You will rebuke and cast out every symptom and trace of it from the root, for Your Name Sake!

As we align our faith to agree with Your Immutable Word, we decree and declare that by Your stripes we have been redeemed and healed! We stand on Your promises that the prayer of faith shall save the sick and raise them up! And as You are strengthening these, we ask that you also envigorate, encourage and replenish the spirits, minds and bodies of those who are charged to care for their loved ones In Jesus Name!

Father, as we lift up our children, our childrens’ children and by faith, we cancel every scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them, we commit them into Your Providential care! We acknowledge that from their Mothers’ wombs, You have a plan and purpose for each one of their lives! Hence, we have the blessed assurance that their steps and stops are being Divinely ordered by Your eyes, therefore, NO WEAPON THAT’S FORMED AGAINST THEM SHALL PROSPER AND EVERY TONGUE THAT ARISES AGAINST THEM SHALL BE CONDEMNED, IN JESUS NAME! We now rejoice in Thy Salvation!

Abba, we lift up every Bishop, Apostle, Pastor, Overseer, Evangelist, Preacher, Teacher, Deacon, auxiliary leader and member! We ask that You encourage their souls with an immediate manifestation of that special miracle that they’ve been waiting, yet standing on the wall proclaiming Your Word under the Power, Conviction and Anointing of Holy Spirit.

Undergird them with Your Anointing and conviction to carry out their assignment, under the direction of Holy Spirit. Cover them as they go in and out amongst Your people and those who would seek to discredit, hinder and even destroy their faith, faithfulness and ministry,You have ordained. Grace Your menservants and maidens to be authentic examples of holiness, in their homes, churches and community that will cause everyone who comes into contact with them to fall deeply in love, trust wholly in and live their lives faithfully serving You! In Jesus Name, AMEN 3X!

Father, we know that You keep Covenant with those who keep covenant with you; therefore in the midst of looming darkness and despair, we pray that You stir up the hearts and minds of those who are professing Your Name, empowering them with a fresh desire for an even greater personal, intimate relationship with Creator God through fellowship of Holy Spirit that they might prove what is the perfect and acceptable will of The Lord Jesus!

Because You YET Sovereignly Rule and Reign over the affairs of mankind, we’re praying, as You have instructed us, for the leaders of our nation and the world, every government, corporate, judicial, education, financial, health care institutions, public service and military individuals!

We’re trusting that You are touching their minds and hearts, speaking to them in dreams and visions and letting them know that Power Belongs to God! Remind them 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, their ears and hearts 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!

Lord, we ask that You remember every believer who is yet holding on to Your Hand by faith today, trusting that You will anoint them with a double portion of Your Divine Power, Supernatural Strength, Consolation, Health and Wholeness, Favor, Provision, Prosperity, Protection and Peace. We pray for those who are grieving the loss of loved ones, broken relationships, marriage difficulties, wayward children, joblessness, irate supervisors, jealousy, bullying, dysfunctional family issues! We ask, Father, that You preserve us thru the tests that You have allowed us to go thru and keep them hidden in the secret place YOUR PRESENCE, resting confident that at the appointed time You shall bring them out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and with the reward as You have promised them in Your Word! For we’re fully persuaded that YOU, JEHOVAH HAS THE FINAL SAY!

Heavenly Father, while we know that there are many other things that we might bring before You, however because You are The Good Shepherd, we believe that every demonic-induced spirit of anxiety, temptation, addiction, rejection, self-hate, suicide, fear and failure, guilt and shame is already defeated by Your Anointing and that the Spirit of Love, Power and Sound-mindness is being released now, in Jesus Name!

Father, as we now rejoice in confident quietness, trusting that all workers of iniquity are trembling and suddenly departing in shame, 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!

Abba Father, we stand in agreement with THE SOVEREIGN ONE, Who hears ours prayers and forgives our transgressions! Holy Father, because You have chosen us to live in eternally in Your House, we shout with exceeding Joy unto 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 Guide and Rule justly!

 

Father, we thank You NOW, believing that it is done according to Your Perfect Will, we seal this prayer with a Holy Hallelujah, 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 SAVES!

Father in Heaven, here we are before You again! We come today with upstretched hands, outstretched arms and yielded hearts, so grateful for this day. We know that it’s only because of Your Amazing Grace and Tender Mercy, You have allowed us to enjoy one more day of life, health and strength. We’re thankful for every opportunity to 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, knowing that You Alone are our God, Guard and Guide with embrace this day, fully persuaded that nothing shall overcome us because in You, Lord Jesus, we are more than conquerors!

Sweet Jesus, we stand humbly before Your Sovereignty, we ask You to forgive us for everything that we, your children, have spoken, done and 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, Heavenly, Father 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, Jesus Christ!

Father, with eternal gratitude we bless You for extending Your Scepter towards us, allowing us to boldly enter into Your Throne Room, confident that You will entreat us graciously as we pour out the burdens that seem to overwhelm our hearts and releasing everything that concerns us. Lord Jesus, we know that You are Omnipotent, Omniscient, Omnipresent, High Prist! You see and You already know everything about everyone of us, yet You have invited us to come to You, and find 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 born.

We believe, as we implore Your Graciousness, Holy Spirit is interceding on our behalf, our family, our friends, even our enemies. Save and deliver those who are closes to destruction, comfort those who are in the pit of grief, hopelessness and despair; lift up the bowed down heads and strengthen the feeble knees of those who are yet calling out to You at this very hour all over this world!

Abba, we know that You have instructed us, to look not at the temporary things, but to the eternal, yet You also know the frailness of our flesh, and how easily we’re provoked and tempted to become overwhelmed by the cares of this world. You know how and why our hearts are burdened with the pressures of this life. Lord You know that many of Your children are wearied with fear, doubt, unbelief, sickness and disease, financial debt, broken relationships, unprovoked threats, depression, addictions, insecurities, and that too many our days are spent beneath clouds of evil foreboding while our nites are plagued with restlessness, despondency and hopelessness!

Lord Jesus, we pray that You will save, heal and deliver us speedily by Your Mighty Hand! Give us to know that because we belong to You, we are never too far that You can’t see us or can’t reach us! We’re so grateful that You are forever shielding us from anything that the devil would rail against us. Help us to understand that Your Name, Jesus is a Strong Tower, and the righteous who run into it and are saved!

Abba Father, as we open our minds and our hearts to You, please console us with Your Assurance, and Confidence that at The Name of Jesus, every knee must bow and every tongue confess that You are Lord! Grace Your children with hope-filled trust that You, Father, 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!

Sweet Holy Spirit, we are fully persuaded of 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 Magnificence, Honor and Glory!

Holy Father, we thank You now for listening to the hearts of everyone reading and praying with us. We thank You, Kind Sir, for hearing the hearts of those who have never trusted and accepted Your Son Jesus as their personal Savior and Lord! We are thankful that Holy Spirit is quickening that stony heart now and they are coming to You, humbled and obediently, now to receive Your Mercy and Grace to Save into their hearts and lives!

As we pray, we’re trusting that You are leading and guiding them to the local church, planting them in Your Vineyard, where they shall be taught and transformed by The Indwelling Power of Your Word of Life to take their position in The Kingdom of Heaven.

Lord, we are so thankful that You have declared that You are married to the backsliders! We ask You to drawn anyone who has been deceived by Satan and walked away from Your Face; prick their hearts with Godly-Repentance and a sincere longing to seek the comfort of Your Presence and rush to the safety of Your Loving Arms and the assembly of like-minded souls, committing the rest of their lives to being faithful servants of Your Kingdom!

Father, we pray for the elderly, the widows, the downcast who have born the heat of the day, and those who have pushed and prayed us through, Lord give them sweet peace!

Sweet Jesus, as we lift up our children and our children’s 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 CANCELLED IMMEDIATELY! We commit them into Your providential care! Realizing that You have a plan and purpose for their lives. we have the blessed assurance that YOU HAVE A PLAN AND PURPOSE FOR EACH ONE OF THEM, EVERY STEP AND STOP IS BEING ORDERED UNDER THE WATCHFUL CARE OF YOUR EYES!

Abba, we lift up every Bishop, Pastor, Overseer, Apostle, Evangelist, Preacher and Teacher. Undergird them with Your Anointing to carry out their assignment!. We ask that You grant an immediate manifestation of that special miracle for each and every one of them who are yet standing on the wall proclaiming Your Word under the convicting Power and Anointing of Holy Spirit! Sweet Jesus, we’re trusting and believing that You will Grace them to be the examples in their homes, churches and community that will cause everyone who comes into contact with them to fall in madly love with You, trusting wholly in and committing to live their lives faithfully and obediently serving You! We plead The Precious Blood of Jesus over them as they go in and out amongst Your people! 

Lord, we pray for the leaders of governments world-wide, because their hearts are in Your Hands, visit them in the night season and command them to do Your Will. Lord Jesus, while man plans, GOD Prevails, therefore, 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!

Father, we believe that every demonic-induced spirit of destruction, temptation, selfishness, addiction, rejection, self-hate, suicide, fear and failure is already defeated by Your Anointing and that the Spirit of Love, Power and Sound-mindedness is being released now, in Jesus Name! We declare and decree 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!
In closing, we ask that You cover the hearts of Your people with a peace that surpasses all understanding and a confident expectation that our times are in Your Hands! 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! 

Lord, there are so many other things, that we have yet to mention, but we’re trusting that as You search the portals of our hearts, we’re believing You to fix it, Jesus as only You can! As we offer up this prayer, we wait in earnest expectation, praising and thanking You in advance, knowing that You are not just able, but willing to do anything that we ask, in accordance to Your Word, in Jesus Name! Amen 3x

All those who stand in Agreement with this Prayer, shout HALLELEUJAH!

SELAH!
