THURSDAYS’ PRAYERS!

SELAH DEVOTIONS!

GM FAM! GOTTA MOMENT? HALLELUJAHHH!

We thank you for joining with us in our weekly Corporate Thursday’s Prayer and Fasting! We’re grateful that our Great High Priest has so graciously invited us to come boldly before His Majestic Throne to release our cares, finding relief, compassion and hope-fill restoration from all of life’s woes! Let’s enter in to His Gates with Thanksgiving and into His Court with praiz and bless His Holy Name…

God has always stood by my side; He has always been my guide! When my friends walk away and turn back on me, He stood right by my side! Always (Always)! He ; never left me alone y’all (Always) He has always stood by my side! Whatever I need I just pray, ’cause I know the Lord would make a way! YES, He STOOD RIGHT BY MY SIDE..YES! YESSSS! YYYEEESSSS…YES! YESSS; YYYEEESSSS LORD….

Eternal God, our Father! The Awesome Creater, Ruler and Sustainer of The Heavens and The earth, we come before You now rejoicing in the Awesomeness of Your Loving-kindness and tender Mercy! We know that it was for no good of our own that You have awakened us to one more day, giving us the activities our limbs, a right mind and a heart to seek Your Face for all that we stand in need of today. We thank You, Precious Father for watching over us as we slept unhindered by the evil forces lurking around us, restly solely in Your Promise to never leave nor forsake us! We thank You for opening the eyes of our understanding enabling us to see Your Glory in the Face of Your Son Jesus in whom we yet live, move and have our very being!

We delight in the honor and privilege bestowed upon us who profess faith in The ONLY Redeeming Blood of Jesus for forgiveness of all our sin; giving us access to such Amazing Grace and Heritage that’s allotted to us who have accepted this free Gift of Eternal Salvation! Now, unto Thee we lift up our souls, confident that as we continue to open up our hearts, minds, spirits, souls and bodies to Your Divine Will, Purpose and Process You will lead and guide us into all Truth that we might learn to trust You, with our whole hearts, obey You and follow Your instructions, delighting in Your Ways that The Light of Your Glory may be manifested thru us to a dark, lost and dying world!

We thank You Lord Jesus for being Faithful to Your Father, even to death on The Cross, making A WAY out of no way to convicted sinners such as I to be saved, cleansed and restored back to our Holy Father! We thank You, Holy Spirit for breaking-up our stony rebellious sin lusting hearts causing us to be convinced that while we were born in sin, it was never The Father’s Will that any man perish but that all should come to repentance, yielding our entire lives over to the Mercy that’s been offered through the life, death, burial and Resurrected Lord of Life, our Messiah Jesus Christ. Confident that no man can come to The Father except thru Jesus, we ask that You prick the hearts of those who’re yet blinded by the deceitful, diabolical devices of our common Adversary, Satan! Let today be the day that The Light of Glory pierces the darkness of their soul, giving way to The Only Hope of Salvation and Everlasting Light which causes them to cry out from a “sincere heart” “What must I do to be saved?” thereby they will confess with their mouths and belief in their hearts that You have heard their prayer and affirmed their “YES LORD!” and responded with Compassion, Grace and Mercy! We thank You for ordering their steps to the place that You’ve ordained in The Body of Christ where they shall be embraced with Love, Acceptance and Joy by their brothers and sisters in Christ to begin their new Life as Saints of the Most High God!

Sweet Holy Spirit, we are grateful that according to The Word, The Father is married to the backslider who have for whatever reason turned away from following, trusting and believing the teachings of Jesus Christ, giving heed to seducing spirits of deception and are now living outside of boundaries of The Covenant that Your Righteousness has established! Lord, release a spirit of Godly-Repentance that cuts through their rebellious hearts, pulling down the enemy’s strongholds that are designed to keep them in bondage to the wickedness of sin-lusting fleshy deeds of darkness. Remind them that You are The ONLY Acceptable Sacrafice for Atonement and that if they persist in rejecting Your Mercy they shall be judged accordingly and eternally separated from all that You have prepared for those who have been called and chosen to live freely, peaceful, strengthened and filled with Your Joy as a Holy Nation, Your Royal Priest in a Everlasting Kingdom with an Everlasting King!

Sweet Jesus, looking around at the evil ways that unregenerated man has conspired, twisted torn and extolled above all that You have set before us, help us to keep our eyes looking Heavenwards, and our hearts filled with Your Word that we might not become weary in well-doing but trusting filly that You know the way that we take; cleanse our consciousness with Your Love and Faithfulness that endows our hearts with anticipating understanding that You will never allow the devil to put more on us than we’re able to bear, and if our burdens become too heavy for us, You have promised to always make a way for us to escape the snare of our enemies, finding shelter under You Mighty Wings, assured that all of our help comes down from The Father of all Comfort as we rely wholly upon Your Omnipresence, Omniscience and Omnipotence. When the tempest winds and storms of life begin to overwhelm us with fear, anxiety, stress, doubt, depression, opposition You have taught us to quickly run to The Rock that is Higher than us, hiding us in that secret cleft where we shall remain shielded safely under The Shadows of Your Almighty Providential Care!

Heavenly Father, while we’re sure that nothing happens in our lives that can ever take You by surprise and continue to confess You were wounded for our transgressions and bruised for our iniquities, the chastisement for our Peace was upon You and by Your STRIPES WE HAVE BEEN HEALED, there’s no denying that it seems as if we’re experiencing a tremendous increase of sickness and diseases even amongst Your children, unlike we’ve ever known! Abba Father, we ask You to touch our brother, touch our sister whose body has been afflicted by all manner of sickness and disease, including the spirit of cancer, heart, kidney, lung disease, bone, prostrate, pancreas and colon disease, mental and emotional disorders and premature deaths, we ask that as You release Your Healing Mantle, rebuke and cast it out at the root, for Your Name Sake.

Heavenly Father, we know You to be Alpha and Omega, the same yesterday, today and forever! Even as You walked in this earth healing all who were sick, feeble, limp, lame, the downcast and outcast, we know that You’re Well Able to do the same right now and are raising them up from their beds of afflction as a testament to Your Name, Power and Glory!

Daddy, we thank You for being God of our Salvation, Hope of Deliverance, Breakthrough and Provision. We’re thankful that because You know 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!

 

Lord, while we yet praying, we ask that You remember our children, our grand/great-grands! We’re trusting Your Word to save us and our households! We know that while many of them are not walking with You wholly, we trust that You have an appointed time for their deliverance from the tempters destructive plans, plots, schemes and pits! We know that the SAME MERCY AND PATIENCE that so generously allowed us to be here today is still covering our legacy, protecting them from being victimized by the Satanic influences that are rampant in this world, enticing our loved ones to ungodly soul ties enslaving them to those things that so easily beset this unsuspecting generation! As we commit them into Your Hand, we realize that You have a plan and purpose for their lives too and we have the blessed assurance that their steps are being Divinely-ordered by Your Eyes! Therefore we speak The Peace of God over their spirits, souls, minds and bodies, we release Your Spirit of Love, Holiness, Wholeness, Hope, Confidence and Excellence equipping and inspring them to fulfill  their God ordained destiny!

 

Lord, we pray for every one going thru a season of sorrow and grief, those being victimized by institutionalized racism, tormented by Spirits of fear, abandonment, lonliness, rejection, disappointment and failure, divorce, wayward children, unrealized expectations, lost of employment, bankruptcy and unjust illegal incarcerations! We plead the Blood of Jesus over every demonic thought, spirits of anxiety, oppression and confusion! You are not the author of these satanic thoughts and feelings, but You have given all who have put our personal trust in Your Son Jesus, Your Righteousness, a Spirit of Love, Peace, Joy and a Sound Mind!

 

Sweet Jesus, we lift up every spiritual leader, we speak LIFE, STRENGTH, ENCOURAGEMENT, CONFIDENCE, ASSURANCE, RESTORATION OF HOPE-FILLED- ENTHUSIASTIC-ANTICIPATION 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! We REBUKE AND COMMAND spirits of low-self esteem, self-doubt, failure, competitiveness, discouragement, disappointment, confusion, sloughtfulness, tiredness, weariness, being unappreciated and misunderstood, all those threatened by spirits of suicide MUST LEAVE NOW!

 

LORD, reward YOUR servant/leaders 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 FAITHFUL AND TRUE WITNESSES, remnant 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!

 

Heavenly Father, as You’ve instructed, we stand in the gap on behalf of  the leaders of our nation and the world! Those who’ve You allowed to lead in governments, corporate, legislate, judicial, financial, education, public safety and services and institutions! We ask You to touch their minds and hearts, speak to them in the midnight hours, give them dreams and visions that lets them know that You Who Sit Enthroned Above the Heavens see and know the intents and the deeds of everyone’s hearts and while they may think they’ve escaped the punishment of unbiased-bi-parasitism of man’s justice, they shall not be able to flee the righteous retribution levied by The Eternal Judge! Alert them that He Who Rules over the circle of the earth is keeping record of the deeds of every man’s heart and will reward accordingly!

 

Abba Father, by the power and anointing that You’ve placed upon every one who’s submitted their lives to You, as we stand in the gap today, we decree and curse the SPIRIT of trauma, hatred, racism, evil, rape, incest, molestation, physical and emotional abuse, bullying, murder, suicide, infidelity, betrayal, abandonment, rejection, hopelessness, unworthiness, stress, insomnia, restlessness, confusion, bi-polar, schizophrenia, poverty and lack, double-minded,  fear, anxiety, the brokenhearted, feeble in body and spirit, those desperate, despondent by grief and sorrow, the one at a crossroad of life, the ones addicted to harmful substances, our armed forces, policemen, fire and emergency rescue personnel, nurses, doctors, pastors and leaders, missionaries far and near and COMMAND IT TO GO RIGHT NOW! WE SPEAK LIFE, LOVE, LIGHT, SALVATION, DELIVERANCE, HEALTH AND HEALING, HOPE, WHOLENESS, RESTORATION, PEACE, RIGHTEOUSNESS AND JOY IN THE HOLYGHOST TO ALL WHO ARE READING THIS PRAYER IN THE NAME THAT’S ABOVE EVERY OTHER NAME THAT CAN BE NAME, JESUS, WE PRAY!

 

Holy Savior, send peace to 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.

 

Father, in closing, we decree that every demonic-induced spirit is defeated NOW because of Your Anointing and that the Spirit of Love, Power, PEACE and Purpose is being released into the lives of Your people now as 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 have received our prayer as a sweet savor coming up before Your Sovereign Throne of Grace and Mercy!

 

Holy Father, because You have called and chosen us 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 Will, Ways, Salvation and Deliverance known among all nations; for You Guide and Rule justly, agreeing with You Who FORGIVES TRANSTRESSORS, HEARS AND ANSWERS PRAYERS, we stand believing according to Your perfect timing, it is done! We ask these favors In The Exalted Name of Jesus and seal this prayer shouting HOLY HALLELUJAH AND AMEN 3X !

 

Now every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, GO TELL SOMEBODY THAT JESUS IS ALIVE, HE STILL SAVES, HEALS, DELIVERS AND HE’S COMING BACK SOON!

SELAH!

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you. For I am the Lord your God, The Holy One of Israel, your Savior; I gave Egypt for your ransom, Ethiopia and Seba in your place. Since you were precious in My sight, You have been honored, And I have loved you; Therefore I will give men for you, And people for your life. Fear not, for I am with you. Isaiah 43:2-4

 

Time is hurling towards Eternity at the speed of life! And sometimes, life comes at you hard, fast and furious, huh?.

I mean, it can’t actually be 22 years ago? I blink and I’m sitting at my daughter’s bedside in the L & D Unit, only slightly aware of her antagonistic glares, but not the least bit intimidated nor daunted away from my mission. Time after time, warning her of each impending contraction (as if she really needed to hear me tell her), I cried out, “Get ready, Dawn, here comes another one! 

Was it really that many hours past before the birth of the most beautiful baby girl this side of heaven, Lil’ Miss Dasia? I can still summon up that joy and sheer magic just witnessing this small Wonder of God’s Glory. It can’t be 22 years ago or can it? One moment, she’s sitting on the front steps waiting for Pop-Pop; her first starring role in a kindergarten play; going to the Senior Prom; crossing the stage receiving her High School Diploma; packing up the car; going off to college,  graduation day and now she’s a certified bonafided  teacherWOOOAH! I guess it must be, huh?

We treasure memories like those, right? Nobody expects those unannounced choatic interruptions. I mean; like waking up the morning refreshed, satiated in anticipation of what adventures are waiting to be unfolded during the course of this new day; totally oblivious to the impact of that 11:49 mid-day phone call, that 5:22 rush-hour accident on the Beltway, or that 2:15 a.m. Police knocking at your door, invading your normal routine everyday as usual life in a way you never thought possible!

Suddenly! By the time your head hits the pillow again, every ounce of hope has been ripped out of you, fleeing to a place waaaaay beyond reach. That peace you enjoyed earlier that day somehow has become lost in the maze of extreme anxiety, depression, and hapless desolation. While something inside of you wonders, was that this morning?

Life has a way of slapping you smack-dab-in the middle of your face, no matter how strong you may think you are. There’s no way to be prepared for something like this, saved-sanctified-Holy Ghost filled or not! Yet not one of us is exempt from the threat of drowning in an unexpected out of the blue situation. And of course, The Tempter doesn’t miss any opportunity to exploit our crisis and destroy our faith in what and WHO we do know.

The Israelites faced a similar dilemma in 2 Chronicles 2:12. Surrounded by their enemy with no way out, King Jehoshaphat did the only thing he could do, he cried out to The Lord. “O our God, wilt Thou not judge them? For we have no might against this great company that cometh against us, neither know we what to do; but our eyes are upon Thee.”

Hopefuly, we all can glean from this example. Challenged by those “we don’t know what’s real, why or what to do situations”, focus on what you do knowWe do know WHO!

We know God is yet God! We know God is Omnipresent, Omnipotent and Omniscient! We know God is Ruler of All Creation! We know God is in complete control! We know He’s always Present with us and that All Power Belongs to God! We know God knows everything about everything! We know His LOVE is unconditionally faithful and irrevocably established forever!

We know that we have a Faithful Father Who’s Solemnly committed Himself to caring, comforting, protecting and restoring our righteousness, peace, our joy and Who is Divinely orchestrating every step and stop safely to our Heavenly home where we shall abide with Him forever!

Don’t get lost in the quarry of the unknown. STICK WITH WHAT YOU KNO, BCUZ AT THE END OF THE DAY, ITZ REALLY IMPORTANT 2 KNOW WHATZ REALLY REAL!

SELAH!

THURSDAYS’ PRAYERS!

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

GOOD MORNING FAM! GOTTA MOMENT! #WOW!

Welcome to the 1st Thursdays’ Corporate Prayer and Fasting of this New Year, 2019! When I think of The GOODNESS OF JESUS, AND ALL THAT HE’S BROUGHT US THRU AND KEPT US IN THE MIDST OF, out of the depths of my innermost being, I cry, ‘ BLESS THE LORD, O MY SOULL, THANK GOD 4 SAVING ME!’ Do I have a witness? Let’s begin this year seeking The Face of The Almighty God and Worshiping Him in the Beauty of Holiness! Shall we pray…

“Unto Thee of O Lord, I lift up my soul in Worshipful Adoration! If thou withdraw Thine Self from me, where, O where shall we go! For there is none like Thee. For No other God we know, none else to save us; none else to heal us, none else to deliver us…BESIDES THEE! For You deserve the GLORRAA AND THE HONOR, I LIFT MY HANDS TO THEE…FOR YOU ARE GREAT! AND YOUR MIRACLES ARE GREAT! THERE IS NO ONE ELSE LIKE THEE…THERE IS NO ONE ELSE LIKE THEE…”
Our Father and our God, we come before You again, delighting in Your Presence, rejoicing in Your Lovingkindness and resting in Your Tender Mercy, confident that You have beckoned our hearts to seek You First, The King of kings and Lord of lords, trusting that You are The Source and Sustainer of all that we shall ever need! We bow humbly before Your Throne of Grace with joyful expectation that You Who keepeth Israel, neither sleeps nor slumbers, but watches over us who place our personal trust in You Alone, as the apple of Your Eye! You are our Salvation, our Shield, our Rock of Refuge and our Redeemer; You shall cause Your Face to shine upon us, dispensing favor into every area of our lives to a thousand generations! Therefore, we shall forever lift our hands to You in total praise!

We thank You Lord Jesus for bringing us through 2018 victoriously! For we recognize that Satan was on our track 365 days scheming and plotting to steal, kill and destroy those who have committed our lives to serve You faithfully as witnesses to the lost and demonically infested nations that You are The Living Savior who has defied the lure of sinful fleshy lust, robbed the grave of it’s victory and defeated the sting of death, having satisfied the price and penalty of our sin through Your Sacrificial Atoning Blood, Death, Burial and Resurrection, has opened up The Way of Truth and Eternal Life to all who will accept Your Saving Grace, reconciling humanity back unto rightful relationship with The Creator of All Living!

Sweet Holy Spirit, we stand before You, gratefully acknowledging that it is nothing that we had, spoken in word, thought or deed that could ever warrant such awemazing goodness, but only because Your Faithful Covenant Loyalty, You continue to look beyond all of our faults, frailties and flaws, instilling in our hearts The Eternal Hope of Heaven, breaking up our fallow hearts, rebuking the stubbornness of our ungodly will, draw us out of the sinking swamp of sin, You opened our blinded eyes allowing us to see Your Glory in The Face of Jesus, our Messiah we have become Children of The Most High God!

Therefore, because no man can come to the Father, except he be drawn by Holy Spirit, we ask that as Your eyes roam throughout the earth, searching and knowing the minds and spirits of all You have created, touch our brothers and sisters who have yet to acknowledge and accept You as their personal Savior and Lord !

Prick their hearts with Your Spirit of Godly Repentance, flood their minds with humility to acknowledge their need for forgiveness for rebelling against Your Holy Statutes and Commands, and grant them The Mercy and Grace to confess You as The Only means of Righteousness and Restoration while it is yet today, that they may become vessels of honor in Your Kingdom, used mightily to provoke others to surrender their lives to You!

We pray for every backslider who has allowed the enemy to deceive and ensnare them to return to a lifestyle of sin for whatever reason! Father speak to their spirits now letting them know that it’s not Your Will that any should perish and that You are waiting with Loving and open arms to receive them back to the fold!  You are The Good Shepherd, eager to show mercy and forgiveness to all who will ask out of the sincerity of a pure heart! Lead and guide them to a local church where they will be greeted and welcomed, loved and nurtured that they might live out the rest of their lives in fear and admonition, privileged to know You, personally and experientially, as The Author and Finisher of The Faithful!

Abba Father, look on all those who are going thru tests, trials, trauma and tragedy, those who are overwhelmed with fear and anxiety because of the cares and pressures of this ungodly world! Strengthen those who are struggling to hold on to their faith, encourage their hearts in Your Word that they might remain confident that even when our hearts condemn us, You Abideth Faithful Forever! Send hope to the hopeless, empower the faint, lift up the downtrodden, restore marriages, broken relationships, rebuke ungodly soul ties, remember those who have unselfishly born the heath of the day, pushed us and prayed us through dangers seen and unseen! Father, given them sweet Peace, knowing that their labor is never in vain!

Lord, we ask that You keep us as only You can! Send peace to our hearts, joy to our souls, prosperity and love  into our homes, places of employment, the market places, our schools, communities and churches! Heal wounded spirits, loose unforgiveness, release forgiveness, restore sound minds, bind confusion, chaos and uncertainty, doubt and unbelief!

Prepare us for overcoming and conquering every obstacle, hindrances, delays, failure and disappointments! Impart unto our hearts and minds that we are more than conquerors though You, and when our enemies are too strong for us to defeat, give us Restful Assurance that because Your Strength is made perfect in our weakness , no weapon that’s formed against us shall prosper because You have sworn By Your Godself, to never leave us nor forsake us, we shall continue to stand still and see Your Salvation!

Precious Lord, because of Your Sovereign Omniscience, You already know that many of Your Children have been afflicted, attacked and tormented by all manner of sicknesses and diseases. However, because Your Word declares that Jesus is The Same, Yesterday, Today and Forever, You were wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities and the chastisement necessary for our Peace was placed upon You, By Your Stripes we were healed! We speak life and healing to our spirits, souls, minds and bodies! We stand in agreement in Your Word, as decreed in James 5:15, the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well and the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven! In Jesus Name AMEN 3X!

Abba Father, we lift up our children, our grands and great-grand children and by faith, we abort and overrule every curse that’s been ordered against their lives and cancel every scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them! As we commit them into Your Providential care, we realize that You also have a Plan and Purpose for their lives! Therefore, we’re trusting that You are Divinely orchestrating every step and every stop that they make, detouring and by-passing defeat and premature death! We have the Blessed Hopeful Assurance that the Peace of God is covering their spirits, souls, minds and bodies, releasing a Spirit of Love, Holiness and Excellence to fulfill their God ordained destiny!

Heavenly Father, according to Your WORD, we lift up the leaders of our nation, federal and local governments, corporate, judicial, education, financial, health care institutions and our churches! As we transition into a new year, a new day, a new way and a new journey, 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 King of All Creation Who Lives, Reigns and Rules for Evermore and At The Name of Jesus, every knee shall bow and every tongue confess THAT YOU ARE LORD!

Abba, we lift up every Bishop, Pastor, Overseer, Apostle, Evangelist, Preacher and Teacher, Missionary, Deacon, auxiliary leader/member, choir director/member, praise team and musician, usher, nurse, driver, parking attendant and custodial worker! 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! Empower and encourage their hearts and minds with confident hope that He that has begun a Good Work shall Complete it unto The Lord Returns! Assure them that whatever HEAVEN STARTS, HELL CAN NOT STOP, IN JESUS NAME! IT IS SO!

Lord, save, heal and deliver speedily all who are crying out to you, seeking Your Face at this very moment! Give us to know that because we belong to You, we are never too far that You can’t see us, reach us, and shield us from anything that the devil would rail against us. Help us to understand that Your Name, Jesus is a Strong Tower, and those that run into it and are saved! We thank You for being our Great High Priest and for listening to the hearts of everyone whose spirits are united and fervently praying with us!

Father, because our steps are being ordered by You and You have committed Your Word towards us, no trouble, test or trial can come near us, except You have allowed it to train us to live each day solely depending on You. We know that You have already  pre-ordained the specific time of deliverance and breakthrough! We thank Holy Spirit, for fully persuading us of Your Providential Presence, Peace and Power to turn everything around to work in our favor and to bring about exuberant testimonies and praises of Your Eternal Magnificence, Honor and Glory!

Sweet Holy Spirit, while there are so many other things that we have yet to mention, we’re trusting that You are not just able, but You’re willing to do anything that we ask, according to You Perfect Will. Therefore, we humbly decree believing You to FIX IT JESUS, AS ONLY YOU CAN!!

Finally Holy Father, as we patiently wait in confidence and quietness, we rejoice in hope, trusting wholly that You have heard the voice of our weeping, our supplications and received our prayer as a sweet savor coming up before Your Sovereign Throne of Grace and Mercy! Father, we thank You and seal this Prayer In The Holy Ghost, for WE KNOW THAT IT IS DONE! In The Exalted Name of Jesus. Amen 3X and a HOLY HALLELUJAHHH!

Beloved, every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, GO TELL SOMEBODY THAT JESUS LIVES, LOVES AND CARES 4 U 2!

LIVE WHAT U BELIEVE!

LIVE WHAT U BELIEVE

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 
Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communication has light with darkness? And what accord has CHRIST with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? And what agreement has the temple of GOD with idols? For you are the temple of THE LIVING GOD. As GOD has said: “I WILL dwell in them And walk among them. I WILL be their GOD, And they SHALL BE MY PEOPLE.” 

 2 Corinthians 6:14-16
While few would disagree that segregation goes against the very essence of Christianity, there are certain circumstances where The Word of God embraces separation and it has absolutely nothing to do with the hue of your skin, the texture of your hair, the thickness of your lips nor the shape and size of your nose! HENCE, IT’S NOT A SKIN THING; IT’S A SIN THING!

We’re living in a space in time where the focus is no longer on living our lives faithfully obedient to the THE SPIRIT OF THE WORD, but how to make the WORD more accommodating, palatable, convenient and comforting to the masses in an effort to promote and fulfill our personal agenda rather than conforming to THE SOVEREIGN WILL OF OUR CREATOR! UUUMMMM??? Could this mentality BE the reason that sinners resist and so easily dismiss the relevancy of THE GOSPEL of JESUS CHRIST? #ijs?

TRUTHBETOLD, IT’S CONFUSING, even for some of us seasoned soldiers of The Faith!  Don’t shout me down nah! Perhaps, we’d see more true conversions than compromise in The Kingdom if our VIDEOS aligned with our AUDIOS!Cuse my folly; guess I jus used one of my senior tokens, huh?

Jus glad I can remember when the ol’ Preachas taught that there was a difference between clean and unclean and saved and unsaved? They stood unapologetically proclaiming that if we were willing to surrender ALL our hearts, open our minds, spirits and our body to HIS WILL, God would provide enuff Grace and Mercy to live our everyday lives in such a way that their godliness would invoke the sinner to envy the righteousness, peace and joy (ZOE) that’s available to every believer through their personal relationship with The Savior and Lord Jesus Christ! #SERIOUSLY! THEY DID!

Remember, ‘Bacndaday’ the Ol’ Skool Mothers testified, encouraging the saints that instead of being content with jus having a CRUSH on Christ to FALL DEEPLY in LOVE with JESUS? #WOW!  And we didn’t get offended and cuss ’em out or threaten to leave the churrch! SHO NUFF! Well?

UR RIGHT, TIMES HAVE CHANGED! HOWEVRRRR, TRUST2KNO, GOD’S STILL LOOKING 4 THE SAME THING TODAY!

 

But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. John 4:23-24

DIDJAKNO? Intentionally or NOT, WE ALL LIVE WHAT WE BELIEVE! #ijs!

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

GOOD MORNING FAM! GOTTA MOMENT? GLORRAA2GAWD!

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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!

IT’S A MATTER OF THE HEART!

And the Lord said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen? If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him. And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him. Genesis 4: 6-8
From the human perspective, favor ain’t always what we expect it to be! #ijs #CANIGETAWITNESS?

 

However, as we acknowledge the Sovereignty of our Heavenly Father, Who does all things well, we can only rightly conclude that Father knows best! While, the frailness of our frame limits our capacity to see, speculate and judge one another by appearances and actions, “the spirit of man is the candle to The Lord.” (Proverbs 20:27) Hence, The Omniscient Creator knows the hearts of each and everyone of us! OMG!!!
God saw crouched within the heart of Cain a spirit of resentment and jealousy which lead to anger and ultimately sin and death! God asked Cain, “Why are you angry?”
Down thru the years, many Biblical Scholars and Theologians have offered many alternative explanations to clarify the disparity between what was an acceptable offering and why one was rejected while the other preferred. Now, I’m not necessarily suggesting that I’ve conclusively determined the answer, k? Nevertheless, may I submit for your momentary consideration that perhaps, it’s not that God despised Cain’s gift per se’, but could it possibly have been the intent that motivated his giving that caused God’s response? UUUMMMM???

God saw the worship-filled sincerity within Abel’s offering to Him! Apparently, Abel knew that everything that He had came from and belonged to God and trusting that whatever he relinquished to God, God was well able and willing to restore unto him exceedingly, abundantly above and beyond anything he’d dared ask or imagine! #Didjaseedat?

On the other hand, it appears that Cain was quite pleased with himself; having tilled the ground, planted seeds and painstakingly kept them watered until it yielded the fruit of his labor. Naturally, he would expect that God would favor his sacrifice over that which his brother had presented, right?

But before we start throwing rocks at Cain, how many times have we seen the favor of God on someone’s life and instead of rejoicing and celebrating The Goodness of God with them, we secretly accused God of being unfair, considering all that we’ve done for the sake of The Kingdom, not to mention how faithfully we’ve strived to follow His teachings, huh? SERIOUSLY? #BOOM #NUFFSAID!

Precious ones, God being a Master Economist, distributes heaven’s treasures according to our personal capacity and potential to produce and to be good stewards over all what He gives us, assuring our highest good and His Greatest Glory!

Don’t get it twisted! None of us like waiting, YET! In the Ingenious Sovereignty of His Own Will, Purpose always trumps pain and disappointments! God has Divinely orchestrated the terrains of our life journey to perfect in us the same Radiant Glory of our Kinsmen Redeemer Jesus Christ!

*For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.” Hebrews 12:11 Nonetheless, His Ways continue to supersede our severely limited intellectual capacity to comprehend the length, width and depth and wonder of His Omnipotent Omniscient Benevolence!
“Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.” James 1:3-4

 

Beloved, God has not forgotten you, a delay is not a denial and GRACE IS UNDESERVED FAVOR! TRUST2KNO, Saints, it’s not about what’s in your hands, but what’s in your hearts that pleases God! Secure your VICTORY with a thankful heart!

SELAH!

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!

SELAH!
