Once again, we are delighted that you’ve joined us in our Weekly Thursdays’ Corporate Fast and Prayer! In times like these, it’s necessary for all who believe in the WORD and WORTH of prayer, to band together, entreating the Face of our Lord, interceding on behalf of all of our brothers and sisters whose lives are being ravaged by unimaginable test, trials and devastating circumstances! We recognize that GOD, being A FAITHFUL and Compassionate Savior, will never be without a witness in the Earth! WE continue to look to the hills, from whence our help comes as we go before HIS MAJESTIC THRONE together! AMEN 3X!

 

WE NEED THEE, OH WE NEED THEE! EVERY HOUR, WE NEED THEE! OOOHHH BLESS US NOW, OUR SAVIOR! WE COME 222222 THEE! Great is Thy faithfulness! Great is Thy faithfulness! Morning by morning new mercies I see; All I have needed Thy hand hath provided—Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!” With our hands lifted up, and our mouths filled with praiz! With a heart of Thanksgiving, I WILL BLESS THEE, O LORD!”

 

Heavenly Father, we come today, In Jesus Name, first thanking You for blessing us to see one more day! While the world is celebrating Valentine’s Day, we recognize that You are The True Lover of our souls! If it had not been for Jesus’ Sacrificial Love, we’d all be condemned to the devil’s Hell! We bow before You to acknowledge that it’s only because of Your Loving Kindness and Commitment that we’re able to embrace the precious Gift of Life and one more day to enjoy the abundance of Your Mercy, Your Grace, Your Power and Your Peace! We’re thankful that because You, knowing our frame, look beyond our human frailties, faults and iniquities yet You continue providing us our daily Bread!

 

Sweet Holy Spirit, as we embrace the day ahead, help us to continuously trust You to keep us safe from all hurt, harm and danger. Help us to make the best of each moment to glorify Your Holy and Righteous Name! Lord Jesus, clear our minds so that we can hear from You and cleanse our hearts that we may deny ourselves and obey Your Will!

 

Sweet Jesus, as we look around this nation and seeing what’s going on in world, we pray that You will hold back the flood waters, rebuke the winds and bind the hand of death an destruction! Send hope, healing, deliverance and restoration wherever it’s needed! Loose Your legions of ministering agents to meet the needs of Your people, releasing blessings and breakthroughs into their lives! Bind the Spirits of Death, Poverty and Defeat, In Jesus Name!

 

Holy Father, please help us to not whine, whimper or complain over things we have no control, and let us show our gratitude that things are as well as they are by faithfully adhering to Your Word!And whenever the cares of this world begin to close in on us, lead us into a secret quiet place where we can look Heavenward and see You Enthroned upon the circle of the Earth! When we’re pushed beyond our limited abilities, let Prayer be our 1st response and not a last resort! Give us the mind to bow before Our Great High Priest, releasing our burdens and casting our cares upon the Only Wise God and Savior! We know when we do that our hearts are comforted and our souls are calmed by the reality that even when we can’t find the words to pray, You’re yet able to listen to our hearts, interpreting every moan, groan and sigh of our spirits and release relief to our souls!

 

Abba Father, bless us that we may be a blessing to others. Keep us strong that we may help the weak. Keep us uplifted that we may have words of encouragement for others. Help us to be an effective witness and to pray for all who don’t believe that You sent Jesus, not to condemn us, but to convict us and to free us from the power, pain and penalty of Sin.

 

Precious Jesus, we pray for Your children everywhere, for every family member and friend, w believing and decreeing that a Spirit of Peace, Unity, Love, Hope and Joy is being released in our homes, places of employment, schools, communities, nation and churches! We believe that Divine Favor is being poured out upon everyone who needs You and their faith is rising to a level that they shall be faithful and obedient to Your Word! Father, bless all of us who have made up in our minds, ‘COME WHAT MAY,’ we will sacrifice OUR will on The Altar of YOUR Will, expecting that You will reward us with supernatural abundance in every area of their lives!

 

We thank You for hearing the hearts of those who have never accepted Your Son Jesus as their personal Savior and Lord! We believe that Holy Spirit is quickening that stony heart with a sincere YES” allowing them to come to You, humbled by Your Unconditional Love, in obedience to Your call and are now receiving Your Mercy and Grace to Save. We Thank You for leading and guiding them to their designated local church, planting them in Your Vineyard, where they shall be welcomed, loved, taught and transformed by Your Word of Life to take their position in The Kingdom of Heaven.

 

We pray for all those who have walked away from The Ark of Safety! Father, arrest them In The Holy Ghost, convict them to declare airrevocable committed YES” to Your Purpose for their lives! Because You Alone are The Hope of This Life and The Life to come, let today be their day to come back to You and back to YOUR church where they will restored as they submit their lives to the sound teachings of Your Word, and learn to love and live their lives walking to please You First!

 

Abba Father, we’re lifting 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 ! We cancel every scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them! As we commit them into Your Providential care, realizing that ‘such were some of us’, however, at the appointed time You snatched our lives out of the pit of destruction. We thank You Sweet Jesus, that You also have a plan and purpose for their lives! Therefore, we have the Blessed Assurance that their steps and stops are being ordered by Your eyes, no weapon that’s formed against them shall prosper and every tongue that speaks against them is already condemned!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!

Heavenly Father, as commanded by Your WORD, we pray for the leaders of our nation, federal/local government, corporate, judicial, education, financial, health care institutions, military, public service workers and our churches! 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! Believing that their hearts are in Your Hands, they are being continuously opened to hear and obey Your Will! We bind principalities powers, rulers of darkness, spiritual wickedness in high places, every demonic strongman over this nation and the world. We shut down every ungodly portal and disable every line of communication that attempts to hinder the effectual fervent prayers of the Righteous and The Word of Truth! We’re yet 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, in the Name Lord Jesus

 

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 decimate their faith, faithfulness and ministry that You have ordained! By faith in Your ability to establish our words, we release warring angels to annihilate spirits of witchcraft, false religions, prophets, teachers, deceptive spirits, perverted soul ties, curses, occult powers and the spirit of anti-Christ, in Jesus Name! AMEN 3X!

 

Abba, You know the frailness of our flesh, and how easily we’re provoked, tempted to lose our focus and become overwhelmed by the cares of this world! Sometimes our hearts are burdened with the pressures of this life, wearied with fear, doubt, unbelief, sickness and disease, financial debt, marital issues, broken relationships, unprovoked threats, depression, addictions, insecurities and grief, Father remember us! Lift up the widows, the caretakers, the downcast who have born the heat of the day, those who pushed and prayed us through! Lord, give them sweet Peace knowing that their labor is never in vain! Lord, keep us as only You can!

 

Precious 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 Adversary 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! Heavenly Father, we thank You for listening to the hearts of everyone whose spirits are united and fervently praying with us!

 

Father, because the our steps are being ordered by You, we walk confident that 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 thank Holy Spirit, for fully persuading us of Your Supernatural PRESENCE, Power, Strength, Health, Encouragement, Provision, Prosperity and Protection! Keep us constantly aware that Christ in Us Is The Hope of Glorraa!

 

We are more than conquers, therefore, every demonic-induced spirit of addiction and fear is defeated NOW because of Your Yoke Destroying, Burden Bearing Anointing that the Spirit of Love, Power a Sound-mind and Purpose is being released into the lives of Your people now, in Jesus Name!

 

Lord, 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. We’re decreeing and believing You to fix it, Jesus, as only You can!

 

Abba 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!

GOOD MORNING FAM! GOTTA MOMENT! AWEMAAZING!

We’re delighted that you’ve joined us once again in our Thursdays’ Corporate Prayer and Fasting! We’re thankful to our Heavenly Father for so graciously allowing us to come before Him with our prayers, supplications, requests and inquiries and casting our cares, concerns trusting His Will to be done in our lives! As we come blessing Him for the outpouring of His Marvelous Lovingkindness, Grace and Mercy towards us,  our sincere heart cry is, “That if it had not been for The LORD on our side, our enemies would’ve swallowed us up!” For this cause, we bow before The Majestic Throne, finding Grace to help in this time of need!

Here we are to worship! Here we are to bow down! Here we are to say that You’re our God! You’re altogether Lovely, Altogether Worthy, Altogether WONDERFUL TO ME! …WE LOVE YOULORD! AND WE LIFT OUR VOICE, TO WORSHIP YOU, OH MY SOUL REJOICE! TAKE JOY, MY KING, IN WHAT YOU HEAR AND LET IT BE A SWEET, SWEET SOUND IN YOUR EAR…HALLELUJAH! HALLELUJAH! HALLELUJAH! HALLELUJAH! LORD, YOU’RE WORTHY! LORD, YOU’RE WORTHY! LORD, YOU’RE WORTHY! LORD YOU’RE WORTHY….

 
Abba Father, we thankya for this day! For this is the day that You’ve made and our hearts are rejoicing in praise and adoration, eternally grateful that You’ve seen fit to bless us to be alive one more day! We know that each day that You allow us to wake up to new mercy and new grace is truly a gift from our Loving, Compassion, Covenant -keeping Heavenly Father! We bow humbly before You now, boldly proclaiming You are King of Kings and Lord of Lord! You Reign Forever and Ever more! There is none like You and there will never be any other to compare! We delight in Your Presence, for You Alone are Worthy of all praise, honor and Glory! Our lips shall forever glorify You for the marvelous things You have done in our lives! For Great is Thy Faithfulness!

We acknowledge that there’s nothing that we’ve done or ever could do to warrant all of the goodness that You continue to shower upon us! But it is our heart’s desire to present our bodies, minds, soul and spirit as living sacrifices to be holy vessels of honor, serving You through serving Your people, as the only reasonable response to such undeserved Graciousness!

We ask You to forgive us for any and everything that we’ve done, spoken or thought that was in violation of Your Holy Commandments! We’re grateful for Your Inherent Benevolent Favor, Unconditional Love, Immeasurable Patience, and awemazing Restraint that allows You to suffer with us, when Your Righteousness justifies corporal punishment, You show unrelenting Mercy to all who will sincerely repent quickly, confessing with our mouths our sin and asking You to forgive us, wash us in The Precious Blood of Jesus, cleansing us of all unrighteousness and restore us back into rightful fellowship with You!

Hear us as we plead, Father forgive us now, in Jesus Name! We thank You now, believing that Your Compassion has once again allowed You to look beyond the frailty and fickleness of our human frame and remember The Covenant You made with Your Word before The Foundation of The Earth that You would keep those who would commit their lives to Jesus, trusting in His Atoning Blood for the remission of our sin! In Jesus Name we pray! Amen 3x!
Father, we know that no man can come to You, except You initiate the call. We pray that as Your Spirit searches throughout the earth, seeking hearts that will yield to You, You will save our brother, save our sister who has  yet to experience The Wonders of Your Saving Grace! Break up the fallow ground, rebuke the demons of the minds, snatch that soul out of the clutches of the enemy, loose them from the snare of the wicked one and set them free, even as You did for us! Put a Spirit of Godly-Repentance in their hearts and minds that may cry out to You, “What must I do to be saved” and enable them to respond out of a “SINCERE YES LORD”,confessing You as their personal Savior and Lord!

Father, we’re grateful for Your Word that assures us that You are married to the backsliders, those who have foolishly allowed Satan to lure them back into bondage and subsequently relinquishing their home in heaven! We know that it’s difficult for us to believe that You truly want them back, but we pray now that You open up the eyes of their understanding that they might know that just as parable You’ve recorded in Your Word, of The Father and the Prodigal son, You are waiting with open arms to embrace, welcome them, forgive and restore them back to Your Fold! We thank You for piercing their hearts with the All Consuming Fire of Your Unconditional Love and flooding it with a genuine repentance and a “FRESH COMMITTED YES LORD”, directing them to a local church where they will be accepted, loved, nurtured in Your Word, Will and Way that they might become witnesses of Your Eternal Glory to a dark, lost and dying world, in Jesus Name we pray!

Sweet Holy Spirit, we gratefully acknowledge You as The Third Person of The GOD-HEAD, the Omnipresent, Omniscient, Omnipotent God with/IN us! Nevertheless, You know everything and everyone of us from the inside out! You know that while we seek to please You by faithfully trusting You in every situation!  Nevertheless since You are our Great High Priest,  having learned by experiencing the same short-falls of our flesh, having humbly submitting Your Glory and clothing Yourself  with the same flesh, You can be touched with the feelings of our infirmities! Lord, You know the struggle is real!

Sometimes, our hearts and minds are overwhelmed with so much doubt, anxiety and uncertaintythat we lose or focus! Lord, You know, the effect that this society, steeped in the stench of swampy lawlessness, corruption and blatant immorality has on us! We ask that You help us to endure the things that are going on around us! Lord, while You never promised us that we would have trial-free lives in this earth, help us to endure these last and evil days! Give us confident hope-filled expectation that Your eyes are on the Righteous, You are a Very Present Help in trouble and that while weeping may endure for a night, Joy shall come in the morning!

We praise You today, for renewed strength, understanding and power that comes from a heart open to, depending and relying only on You! We thank You for the courage to stand steadfast, immovable, always abiding in The Power of Your Presence, trusting that no weapon that’s formed against us shall prosper, because You created the maker and the bow! Give us confidence that even when we walk through the valley overshadowed by danger, destruction and death, You upholdeth all things by The WORD OF YOUR POWER and The Hand of Your Righteousness! For You are Sovereign Ruler and Lord of all the living and the dead! Comfort our hearts to rest assured that nothing happens except You allow it to be so and if You allow us to experience tests and trials to prove what’s in our hearts, You are yet able to take  anything that Satan means for evil and turn it around for our greatest good and Your Highest Glory!

For You have taught us to declare that our hope is not in the temporary things and circumstances nor conditions of this world, But our Hope IS ETERNAL, and remains solidly rooted and anchored in You! Encourage our souls to continue to look Heavenward to The Hills from which comes our Help knowing that ALL of our Help comes from The LORD, The Author and Finisher of our Faith! We exalt Your Name and Your Word, high above our thoughts and our ways! Oh, how awesome are Your deeds! For You have preserved our lives and kept our feet from slipping!
We pray for those who are in contentious situations in the land, in our churches, our homes, communities. We bind the spirit of exclusion and release the Spirit of Oneness! We thankya for the empowering Spirit of Agreement! We pray for those who are arrogant, selfish, self-aggrandizing, reveal yourself to them. Lord, reverse the hatred and bigotry in this land and replace it with Love and Soundness of mind! We’ll give You the Honor and Praise!

Lord, we lift up those who are going thru a season of sorrow, being victimized by bullying, institutionalized racism, tormented by Spirits of fear, rejection, disappointment and failure, church hurt, heart wounds, unforgiveness, marital problems, wayward children, divorce, lost of employment, loan/mortage defaults and bankruptcy and those who are attempting to overcome the difficulties of  a totally unjustified government shutdown!  We plead the Blood of Jesus against every demonic thought, spirits of anxiety, panic attacks, oppression, depression, dementia, chaos and confusion! We know that You are not the author of these satanic thoughts and feelings, but You have given us who have put our personal trust in Your Son Jesus, Your Righteousness, a Spirit of Love, Peace, Joy and a Sound Mind!

Sweet Jesus, as we lift up our children, grand-children and great-grand children, help us to remember that such were some of us! But You patiently waited and trained us up in the way that we should go! Father, by faith, we decree and declare that every scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them, IS HEREBY CANCELLED, and RECOILED!

As we commit them into Your providential care, we acknowledge that because Your Plan and Purpose for their lives cannot be over-ruled, we have the blessed assurance that EVERY STEP AND STOP IS BEING ORDERED UNDER THE WATCHFUL CARE OF YOUR EYES AND NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST THEM SHALL PROSPER AND EVERYTHING THAT PERTAINS TO THEIR DESTINY OF LIFE AND GODLINESS IS FULLFILLED! Therefore, WE SPEAK THE PEACE OF GOD OVER THEIR SPIRITS, MINDS AND BODIES, RELEASING A SPIRIT OF LOVE, HOLINESS AND EXCELLENCE TO FULFILL THEIR GOD-ORDAIN DESTINIES, IN JESUS NAME IT IS SO!

 

Father we lift up every spiritual leader, Apostle, Bishop, Overseer, Pastor, Elder, Preacher, Teacher, Superintendent, Evangelist, Missionary, Deacon and Deaconess who are yet standing on the wall proclaiming Your Word under the conviction and anointing of Holy Spirit! We’re asking for an immediate manifestation of that special miracle for each and every one of them! We ask that You touch the leaders, the shepherds, show them how to touch, lead and guide Your people. Give them clarity of vision!  For without vision Your people peris;h therefore, we pray for Your Vision and not ours! Help us to build up one another and not tear down. Cover them as they go in and out amongst Your people with honor, wisdom and favor! All who would seek to discredit, hinder and even destroy their faith, faithfulness and the GOD-ORDAINED ministry shall be rebuked and restrained by The Power of Holy Spirit. In Jesus Name!

We lift up every auxiliary leader, musician, choir, praise team, usher, nurse and lay member, trusting and believing that You will Grace them to be the Godly examples in their homes, churches and community that will cause everyone who comes into contact with them to fall in love with You, trust wholly in and commit to live the rest of their lives serving You!

Confident that You Sovereignly Rule and Reign over the affairs of mankind, we continue to pray for the White House, Congress, Senate and every government, legislative, corporate leader of our nation and the world! Heavenly Father, we’re asking that You visit them in the night with dreams and visions, letting them know that You, O God never sleep or slumber! Warn them that Your Eyes are going to and fro searching the hearts, minds and motives of all who have been given Power and Authority over Your people! Assure them that they shall be held accountable for every deed and decision that they make; Impress upon their spirits that, He who is pregnant with evil and conceives trouble gives birth to disillusionment. He who digs a hole and scoops it out will fall into the pit he has made. The trouble he causes recoils on himself and his violent schemes will come down on his own head! In Jesus Name! Amen 3x!

Abba Father, as we near the closing of our prayer, we’re careful to mention those who are shut-in, hospitalized, incarcerated, going through chemotherapy and radiation treatments, dyalisis and those waiting for transplants! We lift them up before You! Remember those among us who are stricken with grief, mourning the loss of family and friends, all those whose lives are being tormented by fear, failure, poverty, unbelief, unforgiveness, doubt, anxiety, stress, mental disorder, hopelessness, shame and guilt, suicide, disappointment, rejection, broken marriages and relationships, ungodly soul ties, addictions and perverted sexual orientations!

We rebuke and renounce every and all manner of afflictions and by faith in THE POWER AND AUTHORITY OF THE NAME OF JESUS, we declare and decree immediate release be manifested in the lives and bodies! As God’s anointed, we stand in agreement that everything that does not align with Your Will is bowing, bound and cast down immediately! We call everything in the atmosphere surrounding Your Chosen, into Divine Alignment now, In Jesus Name!

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

Finally, Abba Father, we stand in agreement with You who hears ours prayers and forgives our transgressions as we’re shouting with everlasting joy to The One to Whom all men will come! We believe 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, believing that IT IS DONE, we thank You NOW! In The Exalted Name of Jesus WE SAY Amen 3X and It Is So!

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

SELAH!

GOD REMEMBERS!!!

GOD REMEMBERS2

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid, for YAH, the Lord, is my strength and song; He also has become my salvation. Therefore with joy you will draw water From the wells of salvation. Isaiah 12:2-3

Behold, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me. Isa. 49:16

 

In light of the prevailing gross darkness, devastation and desolation taking place in our world today, I was incited to review the words of God’s Prophet, Isaiah, speaking to the remnant of God’s Chosen nation.

God’s people were facing eminent danger of massive destruction, yet we hear Isaiah offering a word of warning and a ray of hope that we’d do well to glean from today. The Prophet encourages them that no matter what’s happening around you, don’t be afraid, but keep trusting and praising our God!  Isaiah, knowing God inhabits the praises of His people, speaks to souls wearied by the consequences of unwise choices and reminds them that their only hope of deliverance was to remain steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of their Lord! (Ref. 1 Corinthians 15:58)

God is Holy, Righteous and Just! While He must punish the unjust, His Anger does not last forever! Unlike many of our earthly fathers, YAH is our Covenant-keeping God and remains a Faithful Father, Saving Strength, Shield, Provider and Redeemer to all who call upon Him! From His own Mouth, Abba Father promises to wipe away the tears from their faces and keep you in perfect peace because we trust in Him! (Ref. Isaiah 25:8, 26:3-4)

Beloved, when life is out of your control, rest assured, Jesus is always in control! The Eternal Word testifies that you are the apple of His eye and He has tatooed your name in the palm of His Hands forever. (Ref. Psalm 17:8; Isa. 49:16)

In the midst of these unsettling times,  there’s no denying the myriad of distractions that are attempting to cause even the most seasoned of saints to question whether or not The Sovereign Creator and Sustainer of All Life is really concerned about what’s going on down here amongst the gross darkness of a lost, unfaithful and rebellious world,  nevertheless, I adjure you to keep your eyes on Jesus, The Joy of your Salvation and your feet steadfast on THE WORD! Be confident of this very thing, He that has begun a GOOD WORK IS FAITHFUL TO COMPLETE IT UNTIL THE DAY OF JESUS CHRIST! (Ref. Philippians 1:6)

Precious ones, when you can’t see no way, why not confuse hell and praiz JESUS anyhow! Don’tchaknow? At the mere mentioning of THE NAME OF JESUS demons tremble and the angelic host is put on alert!

Ooooh Yeah!  TRUST2KNO, The Great and Holy One of Israel is closer than ever before! Hence, don’t ever forget that YOUR GOD REMEMBERS!

SELAH!

We appreciate every opportunity and privilege extended to us that we might entreat The Presence of our Great High Priest, pouring out our hearts desires, petitions and supplications with Thanksgiving. Humbled by such graciousness, we bow before Him, embracing Him in earnest expectation, confident that He Who Rules Forever by His Power is able to save and deliver us from any of life’s maladies, we grab hold to The Horns of The Altar now to worship Him…

 

I LOVE HIM! I LOVE HIM! BCUZ HE FIST LOVED ME! HE PURCHASED MY SALVATION, ON CALVARY! LET THE CHURCH SAY YYYESSSSS! YYYESSSSS! YYYEEESSS! YYYYEEESSSSS! YEEEESSSS! YYYESSSS! YES LORD! YYYEEESSSS LORD!

HAVE UR WAY! HAVE UR WAAYYY! HAVE UR WWWAAAAAY! HAVE UR WAY! HHHAAVVEEE UR WWAAAYYY! HAVE UR WAY! LET’S PRAY…

 

Father in Heaven, here we are before you once again. We come today with outstretched arms, open hands and grateful hearts, thanking You for blessing us with one more day! Great Is Thy Faithfulness, O Lord, unto me! For this is the day that You have made, therefore we’re rejoicing in The Splendor of Your Magnificent Glory! We know that it’s only by Your Grace and Mercy, that we’re yet here to enjoy life, health and strength! We bless Your Name for the continuous outpouring of Your Unconditional Lovingkindness towards us! As we present ourselves as living sacrifices, holy and acceptable unto you we’re trusting You to provide everything that we need today to sustain us thru whatever challenges that unfold during the course of this day! Abba Father, we know that You Alone are our God, Guard and Guide!

 

Abba Father, it’s with Eternal Gratitude that we bless You for allowing us to enter into Your Throne Room, with hope-filled expectation that You will entreat us graciously as we pour out the burdens that seem to overwhelm our hearts, releasing and committing everything that concerns us to You because You’ve proven Yourself to be Faithful and True.

 

Bowing before You, we acknowledge Your Omnipresence, Omnipotence and Omniscience! You see and You already know everything about everyone of us, yet You invite us to come fully expecting to find Grace and Mercy, comfort and strength that encourages us to hold on to every Word that You have spoken over our lives, even before we were born!

 

Daddy, yielding humbly before Your Sovereignty, we ask Your forgiveness for everything that we have spoken, done and even thought that was not pleasing in Your sight. We now thank You because You have assured us that if we would confess our sins, You, being Faithful and Just, will forgive us, and wash us in The Precious Blood of Jesus, cleanse us from all unrighteousness, and restore the breach that our disobedience has caused between our poor souls and our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!

 

Now, we pray Holy Spirit, that You will intercede on behalf of our family, our friends, even our enemies, knowing that Your love is the same for each and everyone of us!

We lift up all who have never trusted and accepted Your Son Jesus as Savior and Lord! We believe Holy Spirit is quickening that stony heart now imparting a Spirit of Godly-Repentance that’s provoking them to come, humbled by Your Lovingkindness, and they are now receiving Your Mercy and Grace to Save. We believe that You are leading, guiding and planting them into the fertile grown of a local church where they shall be accepted with Love and embrace with Joy by Your Family, taught and transformed by Your Word of Life to take their position in The Kingdom of Heaven. 

We pray for every backslider, who having been deceived by Satan, has turned their back on Your Salvation and Deliverance and gone back into the bondage of this dark, evil and sin-lusting world. Father, we know that because You so loved the world, You sent Jesus to die for sinners and saints! Because You are The Good Shepherd and full of Loyal Love, You are wating with open Arms and Heart to receive them back into The Fold if they will ask You to forgive them, recommit and dedicate the rest of their lives wholly unto faithfully serving You!

Abba, we know that You have instructed us, to look not at the temporary things, but to the eternal, yet because of the frailness of our flesh, we’re easily tempted to become overwhelmed by the cares of this world causing our hearts to become burdened with the pressures of this life! While we struggle to stay focused on Your Presence and Promises, sometimes our spirits become wearied with fear, doubt, unbelief, plagued with restlessness, despondency and hopelessness, sickness and disease, financial debt, marriage problems, wayward rebellious children, broken relationships, unprovoked threats, depression, addictions and insecurities that we lose sight of Your Everlasting Promises of Provision and Protection! Father, help us to stand still and keep us in the center of Your Will, as only You can!

 

Lord Jesus, we lift up  those whose bodies are afflicted by all manner of sickness and diseases. We ask that You touch our brothers and sisters, especially those who are enduring fatal and dibilitating illness caused by the Spirit of cancer, strokes, heart attacks, kidney failure, liver disease. We intercede on behalf of all those undergoing surgical procedures, those in recovery rooms, those 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.

As Your Eyes roam to and fro throughout the earth, we pray that You save and deliver speedily by Your Mighty Hand all those who are crying out and seeking Your Face at the very moment! Give us to know that because we belong to You, we are never too far that You can’t see us, reach us, and shield us from every weapon that our enemy would rail against us. Impart, wisdom and understanding that Your Name, Jesus is a Strong Tower to those that You have declared righteous can run into to be saved. Open up our minds and our hearts, fill us with confident assurance that You are LORD of, over, in and through ALL! You have sworn by GOD-SELF that You will never ever leave nor forsake us, even to the end of this Age!!

 

Grace us with hope-filled Peace that no trouble, test or tragedy can come near us except You allow it to prove our faith and Your Faithfulness to turn everything around to work in our favor, bringing about exuberant testimonies and praises of Your Eternal Magnificence, Honor, Glory and Power! Even we don’t know what to do, we’re trusting You to preserve us in every trial, keep us fully-confident that You have Pre-Ordained an expiration date and promised to bring them out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and with the reward as You have promised them in Your Word!

 

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 is covering them wherever they go! We abort and overrule every curse, cancel every scheme 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 too, we resist fear and worry, but through faith and patience, we walk in the Blessed Assurance that their steps and stops are being Divinely orchestrated 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!

 
Abba, we lift up every Bishop, Pastor, Overseer, Apostle, Evangelist, Preacher and Teacher, Deacon, Board Member, Usher, Muscian, Choir, Praiz Team member, Nurses, Parking Attendant and Security personnel! 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 serve, 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 any who would seek to discredit, hinder and even destroy their faith, faithfulness and the ministry You have ordained.

 

Heavenly Father, as You have instructed us, we pray for the leaders of our nation, government, corporate, judicial, education, financial, health institutions, military and community service workers!  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 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!

Lord, there are so many other things, that we have yet to mention, but we’re trusting, believing You to fix it, Jesus, as only You can! Lord, we know that You are not just able, but willing to do anything that we ask, in accordance to Your Word, in Jesus Name! As we walk through this day, depending soley on You for an Abundant Life, Divine Health and Your  Unspeakable Joy to strengthen us for whatever lies ahead, we shall give You all the Praise!

As we offer us this prayer, 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!

Sweet HOLY SPIRIT, we seal this prayer with A Holy Hallaleujahhh! For WE believe that it is done! In The Exalted Name of Jesus. Amen 3X

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

SELAH!

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!

HONEST 2 GOD?

Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me. Psalm 139:7-10

O righteous God, who searches minds and hearts, bring to an end the violence of the wicked and make the righteous secure. Psalm 7:9

Sorry Father Adam, but once again this is on you! Because of our original progenitor’s high treason against the Righteous instructions given by The Creator of Life, we are all born naughty by nature! Thus, every human born into the earth since our fore-parents’ willful rebellion is corrupted by an innate disorder called iniquity! Now, don’t look at me with that self-righteous attitude! (Ref. Ps. 51:5) But, it goes deeper! Like Adam, the Glory of innocence that once covered us had now been disrupted by sin, exposing us to evil, guilt, shame and fear!

The precious intimacy with God that man once enjoyed in Paradise was violently yanked from him plunging all of creation into gross darkness and utter chaos!

Hence, there’s an inbred-inclination to cover ourselves with fig leaves attempting to hide from the Only True Source of Hope for deliverance and restoration!  The moment we allow our desire to satisfy the wickedness of self’s lust to take precedence over our desire to please God, the hedge comes down and all hell breaks out! And as they say, the rest is history, huh?

That’s why God hates sin! Don’t get it twisted like Eve and fall for the deception of the Tempter who caused her to doubt the sncerity God’s motives in placing certain restrictions on she and Adam! God was not  trying to control us! Nor is He arrogantly trying to keep us down! God certainly doesn’t want to keep us from enjoying ourselves!  God’ s reasons for setting boundaries for us is not even because He’s Sovereign Lord! And He is! But because God loves us so much He hates SIN!  God is HOLY and  SIN robs us of the freedom, peace and pure delight to openly commune with The Lover of our souls!

You do realize that God knew exactly where and what Adam had done when His Voice came walking through the Garden asking, “Adam, where are you?” God IS The All-Consuming Presence over space and time! There’s NO spot where GOD IS NOT! Someone once said, IF GOD MOVED TO THE LEFT OR RIGHT, HE’D BUMP STRAIGHT INTO GODSELF!

But do we also hear the pain of God’s Heart, knowing that He would have to evict His Family out of their home to keep them  away from certain eternal death and destruction...until JESUS came to our rescue? Do we realize that there’s no such thing as a little sin? SALVATION IS FREE BUT IT WASN’T CHEAP! #WOW! HONESTLY!

Yet, like David, sin perverts our mind and we foolishly assume that if we don’t tell God, He won’t figure it out!

Do you realize that confession benefits us more than it does God? “Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy word.” Psalm 119:67 Beloved, we don’t pray to inform God, but we pray to invite Him to step into our misery and fix our mess!

When we confess our faults (sin) to God, He’s able to heal our broken spirit, revive the brittleness of our bones and clear our hearts, minds and souls of the debris that’s left behind by sin’s breach! 

It was a good thing that God sent Nathan to uncover David sin, huh?  This allowed David the opportunity to repent honestly before God, liberating him from the burden, torment, tragedy, grief and condemnation that resulted from harboring secret sin in his heart and hindering him from enjoying the fellowship of God’s Presence!

If we confess our sins, HE is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9 #Didjaheardat?

Jus wondering? When was the last time you had some REAL face2face time with God? THAT LONG, HUH? Well, last time I checked, JESUS WAS STILL SEATED ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE FATHER, WAITING AND WILLING TO INTERCEDE ON YOUR BEHALF! SOOO, WHACHA WAITING 4? HONEST2GOD?

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake. Deut. 31:6 NIV

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Isa. 26:3 KJV

I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Matthew 28:20 

 
One morning I received an email that took me back to an all too familiar place! As I read  on, I immediately realized that the lost sheep could very well had been me. Feel free to eavesdrop on the conversation,…
 
 “In the early 1980s I counseled a Christian young woman who was languishing in deep spiritual, mental and emotional torment. She wrote:
 
“Dear God, Where are you? How can you watch and not help me? I hurt so bad, and you don’t even care. If you cared you’d make it stop or let me die. I love you, but you seem so far away. I can’t hear you or feel you or see you, but I’m supposed to believe you’re here. Lord, I feel them and hear them. They are here. I know you’re real, God, but they are more real to me right now. Please make someone believe me, Lord. Why won’t you make it stop? Please, lord, please! If you love me you’ll let me die…A lost sheep”
 
I deal with many Christians who are filled with such confusion that their daily walk with Christ is unfulfilling and unproductive. When they try to pray, they begin thinking about a million things they should be doing. When they sit down to read the bible, they can’t concentrate. Whenever they have an opportunity to serve the Lord in some way, it comes up short by discouraging thoughts of self-doubt.
 
Having found freedom and deliverance, “the lost sheep” penned a response to her own prayer based on her new understanding of God’s provision in Christ.
 
“My dear lost sheep, You ask me where I am. My child, I am with you and I always will be. You are weak, but in me you are strong. I am so close that I feel everything you feel. Be crucified with me and I will live in you, and you shall live with me. I will direct you in paths of righteousness. My child, I love you and I will never forsake you, for you are truly mine…Love, God”
 
#CANWETALK?  Fortunately, the covers have been lifted and the stigma that once keep many suffering in silence and isolated by guilt and shame are not able to seek medical help  that was once shunned by the world, even by the church! Beloved, the struggle is real, BUT GOD’S LOVE IS GREATER!   By The Grace of God, while I too have experienced the freedom of  being delivered from the tormenting trauma and enslavement due to  clinical depression; however I will never everrrr forget to remember How Great A Salvation that The Lord wrought in my life!  I thank God for the medication that kept me long enough for God to get a hold of my mind, Divinely interrupting the forces of darkness, rebuking the lies and shining the Light of The Gospel of Jesus Christ into my spirit thereby transforming my being from death to LIFE!
 
It’s incumbent upon us to remember, this is not heaven, the devil is still a liar and God’s Word is Truth!  #IJS! If the saints are feeling the heat of the devil’s wicked devises, can you imagine what he’s putting the unsaved through? #EXACTLY!!!

Saints, ask God to open the eyes of your heart that you may see who’s hurting around you. If the whole world’s coming out the closetwe certainly can’t afford to be closet Christians! 

We have an awesome responsibility and an obligation to be the Love, Compassion and Hope of Christ to a lost generation! HENCE, You ought to tell one somebody that there is a Hope that’s out of this world…I mean, really?
 
C’mon nah! JUS TELL ‘EM…His Name is JESUS and He’s ALWAYS JUS A PRAYER AWAY!

SELAH!
