GOOD MORNING CHILDREN OF THE TRUE AND LIVING GOD! GOTTA MOMENT? AWEMAAZIN!

Once again we come together for our Weekly Thursdays Corporate Prayer and Fasting! We count it an honor and privilege to entreat The Majestic Throne of The Maker and Sustainer of Life, seeking Supernatural Mercy, Grace, Counsel, Hope and Help, that God has allotted to any who place our personal trust in The Salvation of our Lord Jesus Christ, to overcome the cumbersome cares of this world! Shall we enter into His Presence with Joy-filled Thanksgiving?

WE WORSHIP YOU, ALMIGHTY GOD! THERE IS NONE LIKE YOU! WE WORSHIP YOU, O PRINCE OF PEACE! THAT IS WHAT WE LONG TO DO! WE GIVE YOU PRAISE, FOR LORD YOU ARE OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS! WE WORSHIP YOU, ALMIGHTY GOD, THERE IS NONE LIKE YOU! THERE IS NONE LIKE YOU! THERE IS NONE LIKE YOU…

 
ABBA FATHER, as we come before You today, In the Magnificent, All Powerful Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus, we’re determined to rejoice, praise and thank You for blessing us to see the last month of 2018! Looking back, we know that it was no goodness of our own but solely because of Your Loyal Love, You havebrought us all the way to this very moment. Through dangers seen and unseen, Thou has kept us safe from all hurt and harm! We bow before You now humbled by Your Benevolence to say Thank You, Father for one more day to enjoy the abundance of Your Mercy, Your Grace, Your Power and Your Peace!

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

Lord Jesus, we are eternally grateful that You purposed in Your Heart and and committed Your Being to be The Only Acceptable Atoning Sacrifice to redeem and reconcile our sin-sick souls from Sin, securing our Salvation, Deliverance, Breakthrough, Peace and Provision. We’re eternally thankful that You, knowing our frame, overcome by Compassion for us, You are willing to look beyond our human frailties, faults, flaws and iniquities, seeing yet ministering to every one of our need!

Once, again, Heavenly Father, we ask that You forgive us for every deed, word, thought that we’ve committed willfully and unwillfully that violated The Righteous Statues that You have commanded for our lives. We’re trusting that even when our own hearts condemn us, because Your Faithfulness is greater than our hearts, as we confess our sins to You, You forgive us, cleanse us in The Precious Blood of Jesus and reconcile us to our rightful position in The Kingdom of our Heavenly Father!

Precious Lord, because no man can come to the Father except You draw them, we ask that as Your Eyes continue to search the hearts of mankind, that You shall draw and save the lost, reclaim every back-slider, prick every heart with a Spirit of Godly-Repentance that frees them to confess a ‘SINCERE AND COMMITTED YES LORD,  and direct their footsteps to a local church home today where they will be greeted, embraced, welcomed in Love by genuine Sisters and Brothers in Christ and taught Your Word that they may live out the remainder of their lives, glorifying You to a lost and dying world! Today, we’re stand agreeing and believing that all of our unsaved loved ones and friends will be saved in the year 2019 and join our Eternal Family!
Father, we pray that You will remember our brothers and sisters whose spirits, minds and bodies have been afflicted by all manner of sickness and disease! Because nothing is impossible to You, we believe that You are healing and delivering from The Spirit Cancer, high/low blood pressure, heart and blood disease, kidney, lung failure, hearing and vision disorders, satanically induced depression, oppression, anxiety, torment, drug addictions, Alzheimer, Dementia, Autism, Spirits of perversions and ungodly soul ties and we call forth total permanent deliverance from every physical, emotional, sexual and spiritual abuse! We believe that as we’re praying, You are rebuking every generational curse, casting down strongholds and commanding immediate release of every trace of sickness and disease from the root, for Your Name Sake! Lord, we’re standing on Your Promise that by Your stripes we have been redeemed and healed and the prayer of faith shall save the sick and raise them up, In Jesus Name, AMEN 3X!

Precious Lord, as You sit Enthroned above the circle of the Earth, nothing happens that takes You by surprise. Because we’re living in the last of the last day, our enemies have stepped up their attacks upon Your Elect. Therefore, we lift up every believer who is yet struggling to hold on to Your Hand, and by faith today, we declare and decree that You are interceding on our behalf, releasing a Double Portion of Your Divine Power, Supernatural Strength, Health, Provision, Prosperity, Peace and Protection. We thank You for empowering and preserving each of us through the tests that You allow, keep us constantly aware of Your Presence, fully confident that the expiration date for our tests, trials, temptations and traumatic episodes have been pre-ordained before we were born into the earth.

Therefore as instructed, teach us to glory in the midst of tribulation, acknowledging that the trying of our faith works patience and perseverance, proving Your Power to sustain and overcome every weapon that’s formed against us, turning our situations around to work in our favor and exalting Your Name to the nations!

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

Precious Lord, remember the children, our grands and great-grand children! By faith we plead THE BLOOD OF JESUS over their lives, covering them wherever they go! We abort, overrule every curse, cancel every scheme and plot that Satan desires to inflict upon their lives! As we commit them into Your Providential care, we remember how generous You were and continue to be in dispensing Grace and Mercy towards us! Realizing that You have a Plan and Purpose for their lives also, today, we resist fear and worry and through faith and patience, we walk in the Blessed Assurance that their steps and stops are being Divinely orchestrated by Your Eyes! We speak The Peace of God over their spirits, minds, souls and bodies releasing a spirit of Love, Holiness and Excellence to fulfill their God ordained destiny!
Abba, we lift up every Bishop, Pastor, Overseer, Apostle, Evangelist, Preacher and Teacher. Undergird them with Your Anointing to carry out their assignment, under the direction of Holy Spirit. Encourage and strengthen their hearts, souls and spirits as they endeavor to reach, teach, preach, guide, guard and comfort those whom You’ve charged them to minister to. Lord You know how discouraging it can be when oftentimes they seem to turn a deaf ear to Your Word! Cover them as they go in and out amongst Your people and those who would seek to discredit, hinder and even destroy their faith, faithfulness and the ministry You have ordained.

Heavenly Father, as You have taught us, we pray for the leaders of our nation, political, corporate, judicial, education, financial, healthcare, military, public service, entertainment institutions and every other institution of our nations! We’re asking that You touch their minds and hearts, speak to them in dreams and visions letting them know that You Who Sit Enthroned Above the Heavens are keeping record of the deeds of every man’s heart and will reward accordingly! We believe that because their hearts are in Your Hands, they are being continuously opened to hear and obey Your Will! Lord Jesus, we’re standing on Your Word as decreed that The government of this world shall rest upon Your shoulders and that You are The Eternal King of Kings and Lord of Lords!

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

Holy Father, there are so many other things, that we have yet to mention, nevertheless, we’re trusting, believing You WILL FIX IT, LORD JESUS, as only You can! We know that You are not just able, but willing to do anything that we ask, in accordance to Your Word!! As we continue thanking You throughout this day, Father, TRUST2KNOW, we’re depending on Your Joy to strengthen us for whatever lies ahead, we shall give You all the Praise, in Jesus Name, AMEN 3X!

In closing, we seal this prayer, with a Holy Hallelujah! Father; we wait in confidence and quietness, rejoicing in hope. trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling and suddenly departing in shameful defeat, because You have heard the voice of our weeping, our supplications and received our prayer as a sweet savor coming up before Your Sovereign Throne of Grace and Mercy! We pray that the words of our mouths and the meditation of our hearts be acceptable in Your Sight!

Father, we thank You NOW, for WE believe that according to Your Purpose and Timing, it is done! In The Exalted Name of Jesus. Amen 3X

Now every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, GO TELL SOMEBODY JESUS IS REAL AND HE’S COMING BACK SOON!

SELAH!

THURSDAYS’ PRAYERS!

Good Morning my Kingdom Bros. And Sistas! GOTTA MOMENT? AWEMAAZING!

 

Welcome 2 today! Our Heavenly Father has blessed u to be alive one more day! And for that, please join us as we exalt The Glorious Name of Jesus 2gether as is our custom on Thursdays’ Corporate Prayer and Fasting! Many are afflicted by a multiplicity of the cares of this world; yet Our Heavenly Father gives us the antidote to the maladies of this life. Therefore, as James 5:13 instructs, let’s pray!

 

Great is Thy Faithfulness, O God our Father! There is no shadow of turning with Thee. Thy changes not; Thy compassion fail not; as Thou hast been, Thou forever wilt be! Morning by morning new mercies I see; ALL I HAVE NEEDED THY HAND HATH PROVIDED—GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS, LORD UNTO ME!

 

 

Abba Father, once again, it is with great joy that we entreat Thy Throne of Mercy and Grace! Trusting confidently that You have afforded us this awesome honor and privilege not because we deserve it, but based solely upon Your Loving-Kindness towards us, You are drawing us into Your All Encompassing Presence.

Sweet Jesus, 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 humble 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!

Lord, 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 can be touched with the feelings of our infirmities! Therefore You, as our Great High Priest, 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!

Lord, while we try to please You by trusting in Your Word, 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, discouragement, disappointment, hopelessness and self-doubt! That’s why we gladly run to You, daily finding 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’re forever blessing You for continuing to renew our strength, understanding and power! As we open our hearts to You, we yield, our spirits, soul and bodies before You! We ask that You forgive us of every act, intent, thought or word that we have done that is contrary to Your Divine Will. We trust that You are faithful and just to forgive us and to wash us again in The Redeeming Blood of Jesus Christ, restoring the intimacy of our fellowship with You as Lord over our lives!

Sweet Jesus, we intercede for all lost souls who are yet unregenerated and unsaved! We’re believing You to break up the stony hearts and ignite a Spirit of Godly-repentance that frees and enables them to confess a sincere YES LORD” from their heart and in their mind! Quicken a desire to come to You today and receive You as their personal Savior and Lord!

Precious Lord, as Your eyes continue searching the hearts of mankind, we’re trusting You to impart a “Committed YES” into the heart and mind of every backslider today that this will be their day to come back to You and come back to YOUR church where they will submit to the loving, nurturing teachings of Your Word, determining to live out the rest of their lives exemplifying The Wonders of Your Glory to a lost and dying world!

Father, touch our brother, touch our sister who have been afflicted by any sickness and disease, including the spirit of cancer, kidney failure, high blood pressure, low blood pressure, strokes, heart attacks, kidney failure, liver disease. We intercede on behalf of all those undergoing surgical procedures, chemotherapy and radiation treatments, those in recovery rooms, those on life-support systems, not knowing that they’re even in this world and those in nursing homes and rehab facilities! We’re declaring and decreeing that even as we’re praying Your Healing Virtue is walking through every ward, touching, healing, delivering, miraculously rebuking fatigue, mistakes, mishaps, misdiagnosis and premature death, perversion, addictions, Alzheimer, autism and depression for Your Name Sake. ! We ask that You rebuke and cast it out at the root, for Your Name Sake!

We come into agreement with your Word and declare that by Your stripes we have been redeemed and healed! We yet stand on Your promise that the prayers of faith shall save the sick and raise them up, In Jesus Name! 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!

Lord, as always, we pray for every believer who is yet holding on to Your Hand by faith today, trusting that You are releasing Divine Power, Supernatural strength, Consolation, Health, Provision, Prosperity, Protection and we’re trusting Your Peace that passes all understanding will keep our hearts filled with Your unspeakable Joy.

Abba Father, preserve them thru every test and trial; keep them constantly aware of YOUR PRESENCE and fully-confident that 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.

 

Father, as we lift up our children, our grandchildren and great-grand children, by faith, canceling every scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them, we commit them into Your Mighty Hands fully persuaded that You will take care of them! We realize that You have a plan and purpose for their lives too therefore, we have the blessed assurance that their every step and stop is being ordered by Your All-seeing Eyes!

Father, we lift up every spiritual leader, asking that You encourage their souls by grant ing 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 empower 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 their lives faithfully and obediently serving You!

 

Father, stir up the hearts and minds of Your people who are professing Your Name and give us an earnest desire for an even greater personal, intimate relationship with Creator God through fellowship of Holy Spirit that we 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 the leaders of our nation, government, corporate, judicial, educational, health care providers and every arena of our society! We’re asking that You touch their minds and hearts, speak to them in dreams and visions to let them know that You Who Sit Enthroned Above the Heavens are keeping record of the deeds of every man’s heart and will reward accordingly!

We’re praying that You endow the hearts of Your people with a peace that surpasses all understanding and a confident expectation that our times are in Your Hands and regardless of the deceitfulness of this world, Your Word promises to protect, provide and preserve the righteous who trust and obey Your Righteous Commands! We ask that You continue opening the eyes of our understanding so that Your people are not easily deceived by those who would desire to entrap Your elect in bondage to anything which You have delivered us from! In Jesus Name, Amen 3x!

Abba Father, help us to understand that Eternal Salvation only comes to those who place their personal trust in the Name of Your First Begotten Son, Jesus ALONE as the Only Power to save us. Give us a sign of Your Goodness, that our enemies may see it and be put to shame. For You, O Lord who searches minds and hearts will continue to shield, help, comfort and save Your servants whose hearts are upright before You.

Father, we believe that every demonic-induced spirit of  destruction, temptation, 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!

Father, as we close our prayer, our souls rejoice in confident quietness, trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling and suddenly departing in shameful defeat! You have heard the voice of our weeping and our supplications and received our prayers as sweet savor coming up before Your Sovereign Throne of Grace and Mercy, therefore You will not withhold Your Mercy from us! Your Love and Your Truth is a wall around us!

Abba Father, we align our spirits, soul and body with Your Eternal Word! Believing that our requests and supplications shall be done in due season, we bow in obedient reverence before The Hope of all the earth, believing that as Your face shines upon us that, You are making Your Ways and Salvation known among all nations for You Guide and Rule justly! Father, we seal this prayer with a Holy Alleleujah In The Exalted Name of Jesus! Amen 3X!

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

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

 

They will be my people, and I will be their God. I will give them singleness of heart and action, so that they will always fear me for their own good and the good of their children after them. I will make an everlasting covenant with them. I will never stop doing good to them, and I will inspire them to fear me so that they will never turn away from me. I will rejoice in doing them good and will assuredly plant them in this land with all my heart and soul. Jeremiah 32:38-41

 

As a child, I vaguely remember a glimpse of pride swelling up down on the inside whenever I heard someone say, ‘This is the GREATEST nation in the world’! I suppose that’s what they mean by ‘Let’s make this nation great…again, huh? But, that was before I became abruptly aware that there were two nations co-existing in one! #ijs!!

 

According to historical accounts, Courage and Confidence was once the hallmark of our nation! Yet, some  might suggest that the infamous catastrophic events of 911 has radically stripped away this lofty heritage and the hope-filled future legacy that was once ascribed to the land of Power, Peace and Prosperity is now being besieged by the rampant rage of darkening clouds of an evil foreboding fear, doubt, anxiety, stress, guilt, shame, confusion and condemnation!

Well, it behooves me to be so presumptuous to dare debate the inevitable result of widespread deviation from the moral standards as defined by The Holy Bible!I Howeverrrr, may I submit for your consideration, that without a holy reverence, a clear vision and a Divine impartation of understanding of WHO GOD IS & WHAT HE REQUIRES OF US, people’s strength will fail and their expectations of security perishes? The past has proven that without the restraint of law and order, destruction prevails! Well, like the ol’ skool preacha used to say, “I jus lost half my churrch!” Seriously?

Honestly, when we don’t understand Whose we are, we’ll be inclined to doubt God’s ability and even His willingness to help us. Void of genuine Hope and unable to trust God’s Unfailing Love, we instinctively depend upon self to take care of our needs and satisfy the desires of our own hearts. And we all know how that turns out, right?

But those of us who dare to risk resentment, ridicule and rejection from those who will slander our righteousness, labeling us as unloving and intolerant, WE DEFY the prevailing opinions of the worldly in favor of the guidelines of the Ancient Landmarks, rejoice in hope, fully persuaded that if we suffer for Christ sake, we shall also reign with Him! #CANIGETANGOODAMEN?

Through Faith and Hope, TRUE WORSHIPERS develop a singleness of -heart and mind, stemming from personal intimacy with The Lord Jesus Christ whereby we experience the Abiding Presence of God, trusting wholly in His Sustaining Grace!

Instead of conforming to the ways of the world, believers don’t bail out! Hence, in the face of the calamity and chaotic circumstances, we stand steadfast, rooted and grounded in The Promises, Provision and Power, persevering in the midst of devastation, famine and plagues, confident that we’re covered! Anybody remember Goshen, God’s Protected Place? (Ref. Exodus 8:22) #EXACTLY!!

Beloved, trust 2 know that when it looks like your world is falling apart, look again! Don’t allow fear to drain your faith! From Heaven’s perspective, everything is falling right in place! Remember, Jesus has already gone into Tomorrow to prepare a table before you, right in the presence of your enemies! (Ref. Psalm 23:5) #Didjaheardat?

IT AIN’T WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE, K? YOU GOTTA HOPE BEYOND THIS WORLD!

Shall we go in together,..

This is Holy ground! This is Holy ground! Come on and bow down! Ooooh Sweet Wonder! Ooooh Sweet Wonder! JESUS THE SON OF GOD! OOOOHHHH SWEET WONDER! OOOHHH SWEET WONDER! JESUSSSUSSSS THE SON OF GOD!

 

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

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

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

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

Precious Lord, as we lift up our children, grand-children and great-grand children to a thousand generations before You today, we commit their lives to You, declaring and decreeing by faith that every scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them is REPEALED AND CANCELLED immediately!We plead The Blood of Jesus over them wherever they go, entrusting them to Your Providential care! We come against untimely death, sickness and diseases, addictions, unnatural perversions, ungodly appetites, lustful desires and temptations! Abba Father, because we realize that You have a plan and purpose for their lives also, we have the blessed assurance that their steps and stops are being divinely orchestrated by Your eyes therefore, we release The Spirit of Truth and Excellence upon their spirit souls, minds and bodies that NO WEAPON THAT IS FORMED AGAINST THEM SHALL PROSPER, in Jesus Name Amen 3x!

Abba, we lift up every Bishop, Pastor, Overseer, Apostle, Evangelist, Preacher, Teacher Missionary, Deacon, musician choir director/member, praise team, liturgical dancer, usher 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 and those who would seek to discredit, hinder and even destroy their faith, faithfulness and ministry, You have ordained!

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

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

Holy Spirit, help us to remain faithful and keep a Kingdom mindset, relying on You 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 Your people and come against our God -ordained Destiny! We rebuke the enemies of our minds, thanking You that nothing can stop the blessings or us from performing the greater works You have assigned to the covenant saints! We thankya for the courage and patience to stand, steadfast, consistent, always abounding in the work of our LORD!

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

Father as we wait in confidence and quietness, we rejoice in hope, trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling and suddenly departing in shameful defeat, terrified because You have heard the voice of our weeping, our supplications and received our prayer as a sweet savor coming up before Your Sovereign Throne of Grace and Mercy!

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

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

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

SELAH!

Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.  Psalm 20:7

He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” Psalm 46:10
Well! Well! Well! Here we go again, huh? America is waking up the morning after The Mid-term Elections! And once again, it depends on which side of the aisle your heart is seated on whether you’re  absolutely delighted or definitely discouraged. Now I know, according to some, it’s socialally irresponsible to mix politics with religion! Or was that waaayyyy backndaday? Needless to say, those of you who know me, already know that I’m generally much to real for a whole lotta folk, so can we jus talk?

Has anyone (besides me) evrrr jus wondered how so many of our caucasian (and those few Afro-American) evangelical bretheren could be such staunch supporters of #45 and at the same time profess their absolute devotion to The Lord and Savior Jesus Christ? #ohnoshedidn’t! OH YES I DID! Honestly, to me, this scenario in itself seems nothing short of paradoxical! #ijs!!!

Now for you legalistic dogmatic religious enthusist who’re already looking at me some kinda way, I know that the Bible says, “Judge Not, lest Ye BE JUDGED”! (Ref. Matt. 7:1) There’s also another scripture that says, ““He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her! (Ref. John 8:7) please  allow me a few moments of  ‘senior folly’! I’m merely suggesting an alternative prospective for your  momentary consideration! Done lost ½ my church already, huh?

God, not willing that His children be ignorant of the enemy’s devices, has so graciously allowed anyone of us who lacks wisdom the privilege to merely ask Him! (Ref. James 1:5) 

Hence, last nite, I was awakened from my slumber, hearing the TV, that being my custom,  tuned into a very popular Religious Cable Network , and lo and behold I was enlightened! Much to my surprise, there was a partaa going on among some of the most prominent elite wealthy evangelical preachers who having graced this  humongous Red/White/Blue Flag drapped stage, were stirring up this large coliseum filled with GOP advocates! Now, the reason that this seemed strange,ly awkward was because before I drifted off to sleep, those who were broadcasting and analyzing the results of the evening’s nationwide election activities had just reported that “The DEMS HAD TAKEN THE HOUSE BACK”! But as I listened further, I heard that #45 was congratulating himself  (and Nancy Pelosi) because the “GOP had maintained CONTROL OF The Senate!” NOW I GUESS THAT’S WHAT U CALL BREAKING NEWS, huh?  Suddenly,   someone on the stage daring  to state the OBVIOUS cried out “AMERICA IS POLARIZED!”  #uthink??? 

Ahhh Shucks! Nah, I’m not always the shiniest penny in the pocket, BUT…I could’ve told ’em dat a long time ago!  GUESS NOBODY ASKED ME, right?

But, the epiphany didn’t jus stop there! As I continued listening to ‘the WORDS DAT WERE COMING OUT OF HIS MOUTH’, IIIIII HHHEEEARRD, one of them say, “America was in a nationwide REVIVAL! Because they had followed the leading of the Lord in 2 Chronicles 7:14 by praying for the nation and supporting God’s designated 21st Century Cyrus, #45, who was bold enuff to finally set in order the things necessary to make AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, (open the way to reverse, Roe vs. Wade; keep illegal aliens out but keep NRA in place, and give RELIGION a much needed VOICE; ridding the nation of Obamacare while subsidizing THE WEALTHY at the expense of Social Security recipients; ignoring perversion, deception and manipulation while denying obvious racial injustice) THE RED WAVE WAS STILL IN PLACE! THEN...he SO eloquently and prolifically dropped da bomb announcing, that THE RED WAVE was symbolic of a THE BLOOD OF JESUS sweeping across this nation!  SERIOUSLY! #OMG! #WHO KNU, right?

BUT! CALL ME IDIOTIC OR BI-POLAR if U want, but I’m gonna stick with THE BOOK! LET EVERY MAN BE A LIAR AND GOD B THE TRUTH! TRUST2KNO2, THEY THAT WORSHIP HIM, MUST WORSHIP HIM IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUST! AS 4 ME AND MY HOUSE, WE SHALL CONTINUE 2 SERVE THE TRUE AND LIVING GOD OF HEAVEN AND EARTH! Datz my story and I’m sticking with IT!

WELL, I GUESS…NOW U KNOW! #WOW!!! POLARIZING, huh? #ijs WAKE UP AMERICA!

SELAH!

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!

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

 

Good morning Family! GOTTA MOMENT? Ooh Glorraa!

Welcome to a new day! Today, we’re excited that you have joined us in our Thursdays’ Day of Corporate Fasting & Prayer! Once again, we appreciate the opportunity and privilege to entreat The Presence of our Great High Priest, pouring out our hearts desires, petitions and supplications with Thanksgiving. What an awesome blessing He has afforded those who delight in embracing Him in earnest expectation and confident  trust that He Rules Forever by His Power is able to save and deliver us from any of life’s maladies! Shall we pray?

O, how I love Jesus! O, how I love JESUS! O, HOW I LOVE JESUS! BCUZ HE 1st LOVED ME!OOOOHHHH Sweet Wonder! Oh Sweet Wonder! Jesus, The Son of God! Ooohh Sweet Wonder! Oh! Sweet Wonder! Jesus! The Son of God! Here I am to worship, Here I am to bow down, Here I am to say that you’re my God,You’re altogether lovely, Altogether worthy, Altogether wonderful to me!

 

Our Father and 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 know that it’s Your Wisdom and Strength that has allowed us to live today! We thank You for revealing to us such wondrous treasures that were hidden from our understanding, when we walked surrounded by darkness, as dead men in the earth without a God on our side!
Abba Father, it’s only because of You,  we now live, move and have our being! We come with our our hearts rejoicing, hands lifted up and our lips forever praizing You! Oh, how awesome are Your deeds! For You have preserved our lives and kept our feet from slipping!

Daddy, we thank You for being  LORD of our Salvation, our Deliverance, Breakthrough and Provision, Protection and PEACE. We’re thankful that because You know our frame, Your Faithfulness and Compassion continuously allows You to look beyond the frailties, faults and iniquities of our human frames to see and still minister to all of our real need!

We’re so blessed because You are a Forgiving Gracious God and Understanding Father! Not only have You have done so much for each and every one of us, You keep right on blessing us over and over again! Abba Father, forgive me this day for everything I have done, said or thought that was not pleasing to Your Heart. Your Holy Word assures us that as we confess our sin, You are Faithful and Just to forgive, pardon and restore us back into rightful fellowship with You, we ask now for Your forgiveness, in The Precious Name of Jesus!
Sweet Jesus, while we  YET struggle to understand WHY You were willing to suffer so to redeem such a worm as I, help us to see sin through Your eyes and to acknowledge it as evil wickedness and rebellion against the Creator and Lover of our souls, The Giver and Sustainer of All Life! And when we sin, quicken our spirit to repent immediately, and to confess with our mouth our wrongdoing, that we might receive the Gracious forgiveness of our Heavenly Father! For this cause, we gladly present our spirit, soul and body as a living holy sacrifice to be used for Your Greatest Glory!
Precious Lord, because no man can come to the Father except you draw them, we intercede on behalf of every unsaved soul, believing that You will 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 Amazing Gift of Grace and receive You as their personal Lord and Savior! We’re believing that You will Divinely orchestrate their footsteps, settleling them into a local church home today, where they will be greeted in Loving-Kindness, nurtured and strengthened to live out the rest of their lives exemplifying The Wonder of Your Glory!

Lord, we lift up every backsider, asking You to put a fresh “Committed YES” in their heart and mind! 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 denying self and walking to please You First!

Father, we pray that You will touch our brother, touch our sister whose body has been afflicted by sickness and disease, especially the spirit of cancer, kidney disease, heart/lung disease and rebuke and cast it out at the root, for Your Name Sake. Heavenly Father, 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 Your stripes have redeemed and healed us and we’re yet standing on Your promises that the prayer of faith shall save the sick and raise them up, In Jesus Name! Amen 3x!

Lord, while we try to please You by trusting in Your Word, sometimes, it’s difficult to over-rule 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 the refuge, peace, restoration that You have prepared for any who would come to You in hope-filled assurance that even when our hearts condemn us,You will never deny Your Word!

Dear Lord, we trust that You will preserve each and everyone of us thru the tests that we must go thru and keep us constantly aware of YOUR PRESENCE and fully-confident that at the appointed time,You, will bring them out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and with the reward as You have promised them in Your Word.

Heavenly Father, we take comfort from knowing that nothing takes You by surprise and in Your Omniscience, Your eyes are going to and from, and You are fully aware of what’s going on in our world today! Therefore, hear us as we pray according to Your Will, for the leaders of our nation, corporate, judicial, education, financial institutions, public servants and health care workers! We’re asking that You touch the minds and hearts, that You 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!

Abba, we ask that You encourage and comfort the souls of Your Elect who are overwhelmed with fear, doubt and worry because of the things that are going on in our personal lives and in this ungodly world systems! We ask that You send an outpouring of Your Divine Favor upon each who needs encouragement and empowerment to stand steadfast, immovable in the midst of these wicked and evil days! Let us know that we are never alone and never without Your Very Present Help! YOU ARE Jehovah Jareh, Who shall supply all of our need according to Your Riches in Glory!

Even when we don’t know what to do, we shall continue to look to You, praying that You will expose and rebuke the murdering Spirit, rebuke fear, doubt, unbelief, hesitation and release us to move forward away from the shores of comfort to embrace the thoughts and plans that You have for us,! We’re believing that You shall birth in us new things, releasing an anointing to destroy yokes, and giving us hope in Your Eternal Words that You are watering the dry places, and causing the dead bones to live again, in Jesus Name!

Help us to remain faithful and keep a KINGDOM mindset, relying on Holy Spirit to comfort and make our way prosperous. We thankya for overwhelming Favor, Prosperity and Peace! We bind every wicked scheme that the enemy desires to assail against us, knowing that because You are with us, we are well able to take possession of the promises that You’ve made to us! And when You’ve blessed us to walk in the manifestations of these things, help us to walk in a Spirit of Humility giving Your Name ALL THE GLORY, HONOR AND PRAIZ!

Father, as we lift up our children, our children’s children 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 steps are 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!

We pray for total deliverance from every cord that would bind Your people and come against our God ordained destiny! We rebuke the enemies of our minds, we thank You that nothing can stop the blessings or us from performing the GREATER WORKS You have assigned to Your Covenant Saints! Strengthen and renew the Covenant of Faith! We Thankya for the courage and patience to stand, steadfast, consistent, always abounding in the work of our LORD, in Jesus Name! AMEN 3X!!!

We pray for strength for all who have lost loved ones, touch bodies, rebuke sickness and disease, touch hearts, minds, and emotions, rebuke grief and disappointment, restore the POWER and sound minds, hope and joy of our salvation. Help us to understand that failure is not final because we are Royal Priests and a Holy Nation unto You, we provoke envy of other nations who have not submitted to The True and Living GOD but who yet serve false gods! We decree and declare that You have raised us up and called us ‘MINE’! We rebuke venomous, hateful, words of racism, the Spirit of ungodly self-righteous elite, because all flesh is of one blood!

As we pray for the church to be the CHURCH, strip us from every demonic influence! You have called us to impact and to be influencers in the midst of this lost and ungodly world. By Your Grace, we’re able to pray for our enemies, those who despitefully use us! You help us to bless those who are bitter and speak evil of us that our faith may be a sign that we belong to You! Empowered by Holy Spirit, we pronounce blessing, joy, peace, favor upon all who trust you, as You prepare a table before our enemies!

Lord send confirmation to those who are wavering as they’re waiting in faith for your hand to move on their behalf. Thank You for allowing our pain to birth greatness in us, transition us into new levels of Your anointing, opportunities, relationships and restoring that which is broken! We ask that you help us to move by faith, remembering not the former things but confidently reaching forward fully persuaded and anticipating that EVERYTHING YOU HAVE PROMISED ALREADY IS!

Sweet Heavenly Father, as we pray the Prayer of Faith, we speak life today, we ask that You cover our children in schools, our families, on their jobs, as they go and come in, we pray that nothing shall cut our lives short, but we shall live and not die! Thank You Jesus for all the great things You have prepared for the People of GOD!

Holy Redeemer, as we close our prayer, we bring so many before Your Majestic Throne! Those who are broken hearted, feeble in body and spirit, the ones at a crossroad of life, the ones addicted to harmful substances, our armed forces, policemen, fire and rescue personnel, nurses, doctors, pastors and leaders, missionaries far and near; the leaders of the world. We’re trusting You to send peace where there is confusion, send love where there is hate, send unity where there is division. Bless the fatherless and motherless. Keep us ALL in your care. These favors we ask in Jesus mighty 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 shameful defeat, because You have heard the voice of our weeping, our supplications and received our prayer as a sweet savor coming up before Your Sovereign Throne of Grace and Mercy!

Abba Father, we stand in agreement with You Who hears ours prayers and forgives our transgressions! Holy Father, because You have chosen to live 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, for WE believe that it is done! In The Exalted Name of Jesus. Amen 3X and It Is So!
Now every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, GO TELL SOMEBODY THAT JESUS STILL SAVES, HEALS AND DELIVERS!

SELAH!
