LIVING YESTERDAY

Living Yesterday 2

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

THIS IS THE DAY WHICH THE LORD HATH MADE, REJOICE AND BE GLAD IN IT! PSALM 118:24

 

The Good ol’ Days!” WOW! Remember? But what is it about memories? Either time has a peculiar way of tainting our perspective or our minds automatically default to selective-perceptions when the moment ends.

#WOW! Somehow, as we reflect upon days gone by,  there will be times when we can actually feel that gut-wrenching pain (that you were utterly convinced was terminal) and the high that would get higher and the groove gets groovyur; the music never stopped; the laughter would become heartier and the flood of tears would never subside; the mornings came too soon and the nights were eternal; puppy love would grow into a couple, a family and divorce and you’d just…and recess lasts for a lifetime…and then it didn’t! BUT SUDDENLY, IT’S TODAY and you’re still alive! #wannacheckurpulse?

The infamous THEY said that the richest piece of real estate in any town, city, state or nation is the grave yard!  #DIDJAGETIT?  Can you imagine all of those hopes, dreams, secrets, recipes, thoughts, conversations, hugs, apologies, promises, potential, possibilities and plans that remain unfulfilled beneath the soil! WOW! 

BELOVED, release the coulda’s, woulda’s, shoulda’s! Smile triumphantly over conquests and the sweetness of successes! Sigh sheepishly over the guilts and regrets—then thank GOD for all the second chances!

My Precious Ones, whatever happened, good, bad, ugly and indifferent; you survived it ALL!

“You can’t alter your past, but you can always take your past to the Altar!” (unknown)

Thank GOD for the Sufficiency of yesterday’s Grace and Hope-Filled tomorrows!

BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, THANK GOD FOR THIS BRAND-NEW BLESSING CALLED 2DAY! DON’T WASTE A SECOND OF IT! #ijs!!! LIVE LOUD TODAY AS IF IT WERE YOUR LAST! 

WHO KNOWS, IT COULD VERY WELL BE, huh? 

SELAH!

Pause, Ponder, Pray & Praiz!

SELAH DEVOTIONS!

 

GOOD MORNING FAMILY! GOTTA MOMENT? AWESOME!

 

 

We’re delighted to have you with us today in our weekly Day of Corporate Pray 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

 

My soul loves, Jesus! My soul loves, Jesus! My soul loves JESUS, BLESS HIS NAME! My soul loves JESUS! MY SOUL LOVES JESUS! MY SOUL LOVES JESUS…BLESS HIS NAME! O, Sweet Wonder! Oh Sweet Wonder! Jesus, The Son of God! Ooohh Sweet Wonder! JESUS THE SON OF GOD! Bow down and Worship Him, Worship Him! Ooohh Worship Him! Bow Down and Worship Him! Enter in! Oooh Enter In. Consuming Fire, Sweet Perfume! Your Awesome Presence, fills this room! This is Holy ground…This is Holy ground…we bow down….

 


Abba Father, it is with great joy that we entreat Thy Throne of Mercy today! Trusting confidently that You have afforded us this awesome honor and privilege not because we deserve it, but based solely on Your Loving-Kindness we draw close into Your All Encompassing Presence! Lord Jesus, we Thankya for Your Faithful Obedience to please The Heart of The Father by sacrificing Your Life in our stead, that we might enjoy the privilege bestowed upon us to 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, but only because of Your Righteousness we are the beneficiaries of All that You are in the eyes of God! Oh, how awesome are Your deeds! For You have preserved our lives and kept our feet from slipping!

 

Thank You for being our ONLY Salvation, Hope of Deliverance, Breakthrough and Provision! Even being completely aware of the limitations of our frame, Your Faithfulness and Compassion continuously allow You to look beyond our human frailties, faults and iniquities to see and minister to all of our real need! We’re blessed because You are a forgiving God, not only have You done so much for each of us, You keep right on blessing us over and over again!. Abba Father, we pray, “Forgive me this day for everything I’ve done, said or thought that was not pleasing to Your Heart. Help us to see and hate sin even as You do. Help us not to frustrate The Grace that You’ve so freely allotted to us. Assured that as we confess our sin, You are Faithful and Just to forgive, pardon and restore us back to rightful fellowship with You, we pray now for Your forgiveness, in The Precious Name of Jesus!”

 

Jesus, we know that You already know everything about every single one of us, because You are Omniscient and Omnipresent, but because 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 therefore You can be touched with the feelings of our infirmities! Therefore, as our Great High Priest, You are 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, Compassion and Comfort! We Thankya Lord, for being our Very Present Help!

 

 

Precious Lord, looking around this country and seeing what’s going on in world, we pray that You will hold back the flood waters and fire, rebuke the winds and bind the hand of death and destruction! Send hope, healing, deliverance and restoration wherever it’s needed! In Jesus Name!

 

Lord, while it’s difficult to blot out the noise of the pestilence, the chaos of uncertainty and the the down-pull of pain, condemnation, guilt, shame and confusion that seeks to lure us into the valleys shadowed with danger, fear, anger, bitterness, anxiety, hopelessness and self-doubt, we STILL TRUST YOU! We gladly run to You, seeking refuge in the midst of storms, peace in the midst of the waves and hope for the faithful restoration thatYou have prepared for any who would come to You in hope-filled assurance that You will never deny Your Word! Heavenly Father, thank You for continuing to satisfy our souls, renew our strength, understanding and power as we yield the cares of our hearts to You!

 

Because no man can come to the Father except you draw them, Father, we interceded on behalf of every unsaved soul, please quicken the Spirit of Godly-repentance in their heart and in their mind that they will come confessing a “SINCERE YES” to Your Precious Gift of Grace and receive You as their Lord and Savior! We’re believing that You will direct their footsteps and place them and settle them into a church home where they will be loved, nurtured, encouraged and taught the Ways of Your Kingdom!

Abba Father, we’re trusting You to break up the fallow ground and put a “fresh COMMITTED YES” in the heart and mind of every backslider! Let today be the day that they repent and come back to You and back to YOUR church determined to humbly submit their lives to the sound teachings of Your Word, learn to love and live their lives denying the lust of their flesh and walking to please You!

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 and saving souls 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, In Jesus Name! Amen 3x!

Holy Spirit, intervene on our behalf to expose and rebuke the murdering spirit, the spirit of doubt, unbelief, hesitation and procrastination! Release Your children from every ungodly soul tie and enable us to move forward away from the shores of comfort to embrace the thoughts and plans that You have purposed for us! Birth in us new things, anoint us to destroy yokes, and restore our hope in Your Eternal words that You are watering the dry places and causing the dead bones to live again! Help us to remain faithful and keep a Kingdom mindset, relying on the Holy Spirit to go before us and make our way prosperous. We believe You are dispensing overwhelming Favor, Prosperity, Peace and when these blessings are manifested, help us to walk in a spirit of humility giving Your Name all the Glory, Honor and Praiz!


We bind every wicked scheme that the enemy desires to assail against us declaring that we are well able to take possession of every promises that You’ve made to us! We pray for total deliverance from every cord that would bind  and come against our God-ordained Destiny! We are thankful that nothing can stop our blessings or keep us from performing the greater works You have assigned to Your 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, the caretakers of the feeble, rebuke the demons of the minds sent to attack our emotions with disappointments and we command restoration of power, love, hope and the JOY of Your Salvation. Help us to understand that as royal priests of a Holy nation unto You, failure is not final and  that our victorious testimonies shall provoke the envy of other nations who have not submitted to The True God but who yet serve false gods!


Sweet Holy Spirit, we bless You for The Spirit of Sonship that has elevated us from sinners, beggars and slaves and now we are priviledged to have You call us “MINE”! Therefore, as Your peculiar treasures, You have empowered us to rebuke every venomous, hateful word of racism and elitism! As You teach the church to be The Church of The Bride of Christ, strip us from every demonic seduction! As You have called us to be influencers in the midst of the lost and ungodly world, help us to pray for our enemies, to bless those who despitefully use us, those who are bitter and speak evil of us that our faith may be a sign that we belong to You! We pronounce blessings, joy, peace, favor upon all who trust You, as You prepare a table before our enemies!

Lord Jesus, send confirmation to those who are wavering as they’re waiting in faith for Your hand to move on our behalf. Assure us that the pain that we’re experiencing shall birth YOUR GREATNESS in us as You transition us into new levels of Your anointing, opportunities, relationships You are restoring that which is broken! Help us to  WALK BY FAITH, remembering not the former things but confidently reaching forward, fully persuaded that NOW IS NOT ALWAYS, anticipating that everything You’ve promised already is!

 

As we offer up this prayer of faith we believe You to cover our babies in daycare, our children in schools, our family and friends! As they go out and come in, You are rebuking threats, accidents, terrorist, assassins, bullies, predators, rapist and we decree that nothing shall cut our lives short!

By faith, we lift up our children, our grand and great-grand children, trusting The Faithfulness of Your Word! We commit them into Your Providential care, rebuke and cancel every wicked scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them! We acknowledge that our children are a gift from You and that You have a Plan and Purpose for each and everyone of their lives! We have the blessed assurance that from their Mothers’ wombs their steps and stops are being Divinely ordered by Your eyes THEREFORE, we declare and decree that NO WEAPON THAT’S FORMED AGAINST THEM SHALL PROSPER, AND EVERY TONGUE THAT RISES UP AGAINST THEM SHALL BE JUDGED AND CONDEMNED RIGHTEOUSLY BY YOU! 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, The Bishops, Pastors, Overseers, Apostles, Evangelist, every Preacher, Teacher, Missionary, Deacon, musician choir director/member, praise team, liturgical dancer, usher and church member! We speak LIFE, STRENGTH, ENCOURAGEMENT, CONFIDENCE, ASSURANCE, RESTORATION OF HOPE and TRUST into all those who are yet believing for immediate manifestation of that special miracle and the fulfillment of every vision that You’ve placed into their hearts! Reward richly ALL those who are yet standing on the wall proclaiming Your Word with POWER, under the CONVICTION AND ANOINTING OF HOLY SPIRIT.

Jesus, we’re trusting and believing You to Grace them to be the TRUE & FAITHFUL WITNESSES and 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 and glorifying You! Undergird them to carry out their assignment, under the direction and guidance 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.

Heavenly Father, as You have instructed, we continue to pray for the leaders of the world, our nation, government, Congress, Judicial, Legislative, corporate, education, financial institutions, health care providers, prison systems, community service worker! Rebuke the Spirit of corruption, collusion and deception! Touch their minds and hearts with GODLY FEAR; 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! Because their hearts are in your hands, we believe they are being continuously opened to hear and obey your will! Lord Jesus, we’re standing on Your Promise 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, encourage and comfort the souls of Your elect who may be overwhelmed with fear, doubt and worry because of the things that are going on in our personal lives and in this ungodly world systems! Give us restful peace that assures us that WE ARE NOT FORGOTTEN OR FORSAKEN and at the appointed time,You, will bring us out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and rewarded as You have promised  in Your Word, according to Your Riches in Glory!

As we close our prayers, Father we decree that every demonic-induced spirit of addiction and perversion is defeated NOW because of Your Anointing, in Jesus Name!

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 stand in agreement with You Who hears,  answers our prayers and forgives our transgressions! Because You have chosen us, committing to love and care for us, our souls shout with joy unto The One to Whom all men will come! We bow 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 Reign, Rule and Guide justly!

Holy Father, we thank You NOW, believing that IT IS DONE! In The Exalted Name of Jesus. AMEN AND HALLELUJAH 3X !

Now every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, GO TELL SOMEBODY THAT JESUS DIED 4 EVERYBODY AND THAT HIS GREATEST DESIRE IS THAT WE ALL BE EMPOWERED 2 LIVE 4 AND WITH HIM 4EVER!

Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the Knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His Divine power has given to us all things that pertain To life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue by which Have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be Partakers of the divine nature, having escaped The corruption that is in the world through lust. 2 Peter 1:1-4

 

Didjakno?  Today’s scripture text is penned by The Apostle Simon Peter! You know Peter, right? He’s the same cussin’ Peter who rejected Jesus three times, cut off the soldier’s ear, stepped out of the boat on the stormy sea and walked on the water to Jesus. Well,  now Peter is a self-proclaimed bond-servant, Divinely ordained and authorized to speak on behalf of Jesus ChristNow this really excites me! Why? Because it assures me of the unfathomable Mercies of our Loving Savior and that nothing in your past has the power to keep you from fulfilling your Destiny! Now to me that’s a good place to praise God, huh?  Hold my mule…Halleleujahhhh!

We, having no right to such loving kindness, yet have been graciously endowed with His Divine Power and given everything that we need to escape the corruption of this world and to live a holy and godly life, not in heaven, but in this present worldDidjaheardat? Unbelievable, I know; but it’s True!

God has equipped true Believers with indwelling Power of The Holy Spirit, transforming us into His Chariots of Fire in this earth!

We  love to sing Donnie McKlurkin’s song, “We fall down, but we get up, we fall down, but we get up…because a saint is just a sinner who fell down, and got up”! Don’t get me wrong, I like that song too. However, we can get a little twisted in our mindset, (not to mention our Theology) because of the craftiness of the devil, and without knowing it, we can actually be masking a spirit of rebellion behind the cloak of faith!

“Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound…GOD FORBID!” Romans 6:1-2

As disciples of our Lord Jesus Christ, every one of us has been commissioned by God to reflect His Glory to this lost, dark and dying world. Yet, if we keep falling to the same old temptations over and over, flippantly counting on the favor of God to show up in our pit to rescue you out of the same old mess, how’s God’s Glory being manifested? #ijs!

According to The Holy Ghost, True Glory is manifested when a believer demonstrates righteousness thru faithful obedience. When you make a genuine commitment to deny the ungodly appetites of your flesh, rather than to bring reproach to the Name of His Lord and Savior, not only are you relying upon God’s Power to deliver you, you’re also proving your love and gratitude for all that Jesus did to redeem you back to your Heavenly Father.

Our journey to Heaven is plagued with unexpected, trouble, chaos and tragedy, however knowing that The Promise Keeper is able to open up pathways that you know not of, make ways out of no way, open doors that have been shut and carries us triumphantly  thru every valley to the mountaintops, fortifies our trust with Hope! As we experience His miraculous deliverances, it develops our confidence so much so that when our faith is challenged by difficulties, we don’t give up, we look up!

A true carrier of God’s Glory plants his faith in the Word of God’s Grace! Having done all to stand, stands therefore, steadfast, unmovable, always abounding, continuously expanding, exceeding all natural expectations, daring to taunt and frustrate the evil plans of the wicked, with holy boldness, testifying ‘Satan, I might have to Bend, but I refuse to Bow”!

NOW, YOU’RE JUS WHAT THE WORLD IS WAITING FOR!  #BOOM! GO AHEAD…LIGHT UP THE WORLD PROCLAIMING, ‘TO GOD BE THE GLORY! KEEP THE FIYA BURNING!

SELAH!

HE WILL DO IT…AGAIN!

HE WILL DO IT...AGAIN

SELAH Daily Devotions!

For the Lord GOD will help me; therefore shall I not be confounded: therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed. Isaiah 50:7

For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed. Malachi 3:6

There’s never been a point, place or space in time where God is not! God IS and will ever BE—for He is ETERNALLY GOD! #didjaheardat?

To souls wearied and wounded from matriculating through the sporadic-tumultuous terrains of life, this statement has proven to be the Source of great comfort and strength. At the same time, to the forces of evil, it’s the sting of predictable debilitating destruction and defeat against their insidious attacks!

The primary mission of the Kingdom of darkness is to cause the people of God to abandon their hope and personal trust in The Eternal Father by any means necessary! Satan’s disciples strategically set up obstacles  to ensnare believers with confusion, fear and doubt designed ultimately to contaminate their faith, causing them to re-evaluate the Reliability of trusting in an invisible, yet all emcompassing True and Living God!

Problem is, all too often, it’s the personal testimonies of triumphant victories down thru the years that continue to rigorously validate God’s Faithfulness, fueling the Believer’s Hope of Eternal Glory!

Granted, finding ourselves knee-deep in the dung of this 21st Century Anti-Christ culture, there’s no shortage of opportunities to just throw in the towel, tap-out on the Promises revealed in the Sacred Writ, resolving that they’re no longer relevant in this self-centered, self-righteous, intellectually astute, Hi-Tech, contemporal millenial society!

However, such thinking is only logical to those who have foolishly opted to avoid the reality of The Omnipresent Omnipotent True and Living God! Nevertheless, absolutely nothing ever happens that catches God off-guard. Hence, He is Alpha and Omega! The Omniscient Creator, Sovereignly orchestrating the affairs of humanity from eternity past, thru present into eternity future, determined that His Purpose shall never be frustrated by the inherent iniquity of flawed-fickled-fleshy-lust-filled mankind!

Because God wanted to make the unchanging nature of His purpose very clear to the heirs of what was promised, he confirmed it with an oath. God did this so that, by two inchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of The Hope offered to us may be greatly encouraged. We have this Hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. Hebrews 6:17-19

Beloved, standing firmly on the Immutability of God’s Word, gives us the leverage to embrace every situation with confident assurance that we’re never alone and God is always in control. Relax!Remember this ain’t your first rodeo, right? A quick glance over your shoulders will remind us that our Heavenly Father has always been our very Present Help, constantly undergirding our inabilities with His Infinite Excellence!

History declares that we’re surrounded by clouds of witnesses who’ve gone before us, therefore, we imitate those who through faith and patience inherit the promises! (Hebrews 6:12) 

Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the Lord thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. Deuteronomy 31:6

Remember, My child, when it seems as if the odds are stacked against the righteous—GOD’S AT HIS BEST! FAITHFUL…IF HE DID IT B4, HE WILL DO IT…AGAIN!  #seriously

UNFAILING HOPE!

UNFAILING HOPE. 2jpg

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name. Let thy mercy, O LORD, be upon us, according as we hope in thee. Psalm 33:21-22 KJV
In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name. May your unfailing love be with us, Lord, even as we put our hope in you. Psalm 33:21-22 NIV

 

OK! Let me set up this preemptive disclaimer, “The views expressed in this article are not necessarily applicable to the well-seasoned-sanctified-saints, and do not intentionally fringe upon the rights of the eonian optimist; unless otherwise indicated!” Howevverrrr, any early morning glance at the latest ‘TRENDING NOW’ pop-ups on our laptop News Feed might easily cause those of us who are desperately struggling to hold onto some semblance of hope for better days ahead, in this present world to take an immediate nose-dive into obscurity! #ijs!!!

I mean,…5 Killed in Md Shooting a ‘Target Attack’ Suspect Charge!, Maryland Shooting Victims, Red Hen Cyber Attack, Kelly Leaving WH Soon? D.B. Cooper Investigations, Trump Wants Out of WTO? AT&T Pays $5.25M Over Emergency Calls Outages, Sheeran sued for $100M, NFL QB Suspended, 5 Kicked Off Delta Flight, Sci-fi Legend Dies, Iraq Executes 13 Death Row Jihadists To Avenge Killings, Recessions Fears Flare As Markets Behave In A Way Not Seen Since Financial Crisis, Massive Asteroids Speeding Past Earth is Visible to Naked Eye…C’mon nah! And it’s not even 8:30 a.m.!!!

Granted, I’ll admit, any momentary glimpses of personal optimism is the consequence of an immense intensive intrinsic concerted effort!  God’s still working on that, so don’t judge me! Nonetheless, unless you were born late last night or landed on Planet Earth early this morning, it’s obvious that ‘there’s a whole lotta shakin’ going on, huh? To those of us who’ve experienced the eye-opening-awakening of our spiritual understanding, realize that we’re definitely living in the Prophetic Times foretold, not just by the Ancient patriots of faith, but even Jesus Himself! (Ref. Matthew 24:6) BUT, WHO KNU?

Epidemic civic unrest, chaotic rioting, slayings, wars and rumors of wars, unraveling of corrupt political slanderers of ice and fire, global warming, earthquakes and floodings, threats of government shutdowns, human trafficking, corporate bankruptcy, lay-offs, hackers, airport, mall, restaurant, nite club, offices, schools and church shootings, drug overdoses, suicides coupled with sporatic plane, train and car crashes have become the new normalcy for the 21st Century society! It’s no wonder that so many of us are stressed out, right?

Yet! Believers, have an advantage that the world knows not of! We know that now is not always! OUR  Heavenly King, has assured us that “The sufferings of this present time, are not worth even sweating over; compared to the glorious future that awaits us at His Appearance! (Ref. Roman 8:18) While there’s no denying the difficulties and frustrations in enduring the wickedness of man, nevertheless, we have a Hope that reaches beyond this world! I’m reminded of my Ol’ “Skool Mother, Annie Carter’s favorite saying, “Everythings going down BUT THE WORD OF GOD!” Mama knew that The Word of God stands firm forever! (Ref. Psalm 33:10-11)

YES! Sometimes, GOD ALLOWS the horsemen to trample over our heads! Nonetheless, when faced with ‘real-time woes’, we don’t run away! We anchor our trust in GOD’s Unfailing Love; fully persuaded that it’s just a temporary set-up for our enemies’ imminent destruction and our inevitable Triumph! (Ref. 2 Corinthians 2:14) When you’re at your weakest, look to The Rock from which you were hued! (Ref. Isaiah 51:1) TRUST2KNO! His Faithfulness to save, rescue and cover us is always stronger than our momentary doubts and fears!

WOW! When it looks as if everything’s falling apart, GOD says EVERYTHING IS FALLING RIGHT IN PLACE! NOW…lift up your heads and let your hearts rejoice in boasting, resting patiently, securely trusting The THE ETERNAL HOPE OFJESUS’ UNFAILING LOVE! #4OURGODREIGNS4EVER!!

THURSDAYS’ PRAYERS

PRAYN AND FASTING PIC

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

GOOD MORNING FAMILY! GOTTA MOMENT! AWESOME!

Once again we’re delighted to have you join us in our Thursdays’ Corporate Prayer & Fasting! In times like these, there is indeed  much to pray about and for! The Word of God encourages us to make seeking The Throne of Grace and Mercy our 1st priority rather than our last resort!

 …Shall we go in together…Oh, Sweet Wonder! Oh, Sweet Wonder! Jesus, The Son Of God! Oh, Sweet Wonder! Oh, Sweet Wonder,Jesus, The Son Of God! He’s A Wonder, In My Soul! He’s A Wonder, In My Soul! He’s A Wonder, In My Soul! BLESS HIS NAME…
Abba Father, it is with great joy that we entreat Thy Seat of Mercy today! Trusting confidently that You have afforded us this awesome honor and privilege not because we deserve it, but it is solely Your Loving-Kindness towards us, that draws us into Your All Emcompassing Presence! Lord, we thankya for Your Faithful Obedience to please The Heart of The Father by sacrificing Your Life in our stead, that we might become Sons of The True and Living God! And for this cause, we bow in gratitude, fully aware that as we come before You, empty and void of anything that would warrant such awesome graciousness, but because of Your Righteousness, we are now the beneficiary of All that You are in the Eyes of God!

Father, because You are Omnisient and Omnipresent, we know that You already know everything about every single one of us. You have walked among us, allowing Your self to be tempted at all points, as we are, to learn what we experience in these earthly tabernacles, therefore You can be touched with the feelings of our infirmities! You are 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, for being our Very Present Help!

Lord, while we try to please You by trusting and obeying Your Word, You know that sometimes, it’s difficult 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 gladly run to You, daily to find refuge, peace, 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 will forever bless You for continuing to renew our strength, understanding and power as we open our hearts to You, depending and relying only on You!

And as we yield before You, we pray for those who are unsaved, we’re believing You to ignite a spirit of Godly-repentance that they may say “YES” in their heart and in their mind that they will have a desire to come to you today and receive You as their SAVIOR and Lord.

Lord, we’re believing You to put a “COMMITED YES” in the heart and mind of every backslider today believing that this will be the day that they come back to You and come back to YOUR church where they will be nurtured by Your Word to devote the rest of their life to faithful obedience and service to You as LORD and Savior!

Father, please touch our brother, touch our sister who has been afflicted by any sickness and disease, including the spirit of cancer, kidney failure, high blood pressure, low blood pressure and rebuke and cast it out at the root, for As we come into agreement with your Word and declare 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!  Gracious Lord, even 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!

Lord Jesus, we are praying that you will bless our marriages, restore the sacredness, hope, trust  and peace between the man and woman as You originally intended. Rebuke every sinful act and temptation that seeks to destroy the intimate relationship between husband, wife, children and You, our GOD! Pull down every stronghold that is attempting to ascue and pervert the very foundation of our Life in Christ Jesus!

Heavenly Father, as always, we pray for every believer who is yet holding on to Your Hand by faith today, trusting You to release Divine power, Supernatural strength, consolation, health, provision, prosperity and protection! We pray also Father, that You preserve them thru the tests that they must go thru and keep them constantly aware of YOUR PRESENCE and fully-confident that You will bring them out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and with the reward as You have promised them in Your Word.

Abba Father we lift up every spiritual leader, asking 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 conviction and anointing of Holy Spirit.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 love, trust wholly in and live their lives serving You!

Father, as we lift up our children, our children’s children and by faith, canceling every scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them, committing 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 are being ordered by Your eyes!

Father, stir up the hearts and minds of those who are professing Your Name that they will have a 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!

Knowing that You Sovereignly Rule and Reign over the affairs of mankind, we’re praying for and thanking you for President Obama, Hilliary Clinton and their families trusting that no weapon that is formed against them shall prosper and every tongue that rises us against them shall be condemned!

We ask that You continue to open the eyes of understanding so that your people are not easily deceived by those who would desire to entrap your children in bondage to that which you have delivered us from.

Abba Father, help us to understand that salvation comes to those who personally trust in  Jesus ALONE,  as the Only Power to save us.

Father, we believe that every demonic-induced spirit of temptation, addiction, rejection, self-hate, suicide, fear and failure is already defeated by Your Anointing and that the Spirit of Love, Power and Sound-mindness is being released now, in Jesus Name!

LORD JESUS, we rejoice now in confidence and quietness, trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling and suddenly departing in shame, turning their backs, running away from Your people in total disgust and defeat, 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 THANK YOU, HONOR AND PRAISE YOU NOW, FOR WE TRUST, BELIEVE, DECLARE AND DECREE 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 ONE SOMEBODY THAT JESUS STILL CARES!
