SELAH Daily Devotions!

Good Morning Family! GOTTA MOMENT? GREAT! We’re so glad that you’ve joined with us today in our Weekly Thursdays’ Corporate Prayer and Fasting!

O sing unto the Lord a new song: sing unto the Lord, all the earth. Sing unto the Lord, bless his name; shew forth his salvation from day to day. Declare his glory among the heathen, his wonders among all people. For the Lord is great, and greatly to be praised: he is to be feared above all gods! For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the Lord made the heavens. Psalm 96:1-5

FATHER, I stretch my hand to THEE! No other help I know! If THY withdraw THYSELF from me…where shall I go…LET’S PRAY…

 

Father in Heaven, once again, we come humbly entreating Your Throne of Mercy and Grace! With outstretched arms, open hands and grateful hearts, we praise You 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 because of Your Grace and Mercy, that we’re yet here and because of Your lovingkindness, You have allowed us one more day to enjoy life, health and strength!

We’re thankful for this opportunity to present ourselves as living sacrifices, holy and acceptable unto You. From our Mother’s womb, You’ve proven Yourself to be Faithful and True; therefore, 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’re blessed to call You our God, Guard and Guide!

Father, with eternal gratitude 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 everything that concerns us to you! Lord Jesus, because we know that You are Omniscient, Omnipresent, You see and You already know everything about everyone of us, yet you have welcomed us to come to you, to find Grace and Mercy to comfort, strengthen and encourage us to hold on to every Word that You have spoken over our lives, before we were born.

 
Precious Lord, as we stand humbly before Your Sovereignty, before we go any further, we’re asking You to forgive us for everything that we, your children, have spoken, done and even thought that was not pleasing in Your sight. We thank You now because You have assured us that if we would confess our sins, You, Heavenly being Faithful and Just, will forgive us, and wash us in The Precious Blood of Jesus, cleansing us from all unrighteousness, and restoring the breach that our disobedience has caused between our poor souls and our Lord and Savior, Jesus! Now, we ask Holy Spirit to intercede on our behalf, our family, our friends, even our enemies, as we know that Your love is the same for each and everyone of us!

 
Sweet Jesus, we know that You have instructed us, to look not at the temporary things, but to the eternal, yet You know the frailness of our flesh, and how easily we’re provoked and tempted to become overwhelmed by the cares of this world, that our hearts are burdened with the pressures of this life, that some of us are wearied with fear, doubt, unbelief, sickness and disease, financial debt, broken relationships, unprovoked threats, depression, addictions, insecurities. Lord you know that sometimes we lose our focus on You causing our days to be spent beneath clouds of evil foreboding, while our nites are plagued with restlessness, despondency and hopelessness! Lord, keep us in Your Will, as only You can!

Lord,  we thankya for being a Listening God!  We thankya for The Precious Blood  that yet speaks. Your Words declares that the blood of Abel was crying out to You from the ground, hence we are fully persuaded that You ears are not deaf to the cries of our fathers, Grandfathers, husbands, brothers, sons, nephews and cousins all over this world, even these UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! Therefore, as Your ears are tuned into the blood of all those victimized by the ungodly culture of a nation who has turned it’s back on Your Righteous Standards, we pray for patience to await Your Divine Justice!

 

While You have taught us to love everyone that You’ve created in Your Own Image, we cannot deny that we need You to heal the pain, anger, grief and distrust,and yes even that glimpse of revenge that taints the hearts of Your people at the prevailing injustice inflicted upon people of color. While many in ‘power’ who have sworn to take the position of being color-blind, and ethnically/socially unbiased, nevertheless as of late, their voices are mute when it comes to urban genocide! However, when certain hues are involved, there’s outrage emanating texts and speeches streaming live from The Oval Office to floor of Congress and Senators, and throughout the nation! Jesus, Cover us in Your BLOOD as we walk through the valleys of the shadow of death! We know that because of this crooked and perverted nation, the safest place yet remains in THE WILL OF GOD! Therefore, Father, heal our land!

 

Lord we pray that You will save, heal and deliver speedily by Your Mighty Hand, all those who are crying out to you, 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 anything that the devil would rail against us. Help us to understand that Your Name, Jesus is a Strong Tower, and those that You have robed in Your righteousness run into it and are saved. Open up our minds and our hearts, filling us with Your Assurance, and Confidence that at The Name of Jesus, every knee must bow and every tongue confess that You are Lord!

Grace Your children with hope-filled trust that You, Father, have committed Your Word towards us that no weapon that’s formed us shall ever prosper and except You allow it, no trouble, test or trial can come near us. We thank you Lord, for fully persuading us of Your Providential Presence and Power to turn everything around to work in our favor and to bring about exuberant testimonies and praizes of Your Eternal Magnificence, Honor and Glory!

Father, we thank You for listening to the hearts of everyone reading and praying with us. We thank you for hearing the hearts of those who have never trusted and accepted Your Son Jesus as Savior and Lord! We are thankful that Holy Spirit is quickening that stony heart now and that they shall come to You humbled by Your Lovingkindness, in obedience to Your call and are now receiving your Mercy and Grace to Save. We pray now that You are leading and guiding them to the local church, planting them in Your Vineyard, where they shall be nurtured, taught and transformed by Your Word of Life to take their position as ambassadors in The Kingdom of Heaven!

Father, we pray for those who are distraught by grief and fear, the elderly, the widows, the downcast who have born the heat of the day, those who pushed and prayed us through! Father, give them sweet peace. Lord, we pray for the leaders of governments world-wide, their hearts are in Your Hands, visit them in the night season and command them to do Your Will.

Lord, I pray for every believer who is yet holding onto Your Hand by faith today, that You are releasing Divine power, Supernatural strength and health, provision, prosperity and protection. Father, we’re trusting that You shall preserve them thru the tests that they must go thru and keep them constantly aware of YOUR PRESENCE, fully-confident that at the appointed time, You will bring them out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and with the reward asYou have promised them in Your Word!

We decree that as Your people align their lives with Your Word, You shall supply all of our needs according to Your Riches in Christ Jesus! As we intercede on behalf of our brothers and sisters, we’re believing that there’s an immediate release of miraculous Favor and Prosperity, unexpected promotions, opening up opportunities for entrepreneurship, increased education grants, lower interest mortgage rates, supernatural debt cancellations, book contracts and overturning legal decisions to giving Your people sudden victories! In Jesus Name! Amen 3x!

Father we decree that every demonic-induced spirit of addiction and fear is defeated NOW because of Your Yoke Destroying-Burden-releasing Anointing and The Spirit of Love, Power and Sound-mindness and Purpose is being released into the lives of Your people now,in The Mighty Name of Jesus!

Abba, as we lift up every Bishop, Pastor, Overseer, Apostle, Evangelist, Preacher and Teacher, we ask that You undergird them with Your Anointing 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 the ministry You have ordained!

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! We thank you Father that as we walk through this day, depending on you for abundant life, divine health and Your Joy to strengthen us for whatever lies ahead, we shall give You all the Praise!

Heavenly Father, continue to bless us that we may be a blessing to others. Keep us strong that we may help the weak.. Keep us uplifted, encourage our souls that we may share words of encouragement to those who need comfort and assurance that You are with them also!

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

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

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

SELAH!

Pause, Ponder, Pray and Praiz!

GOTTA MOMENT? GREAT GOD ALMIGHTY!

Once again, we invite you to join us at The Altar of Prayer. As we come into one accord, eternally grateful to Our Heavenly Father, Who has so graciously given us one more opportunity to entreat The Wonder of His Presence and Mercy through the privilege of Prayer! We approach Him with a Holy Boldness trusting that as we open our hearts towards Heaven, He is extending His Scepter towards us! Shall we pray?

JESUS, JESUS! THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT THAT NAME! MASTER, SAVIOR, JESUS! LET THE HEAVENS AND EARTH PROCLAIM! KINGS AND KINGDOMS SHALL ALL PASS AWAY! BUT THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT YOUR NAME! OH SWEET WONDER! OH SWEET WONDER! JESUS, THE SON OF GOD! OOOOHHHH SWEET WONDER! OOOOOOH SWEET WONDER, JESUS, THE SON OF GOD!
 

Precious Lord, once again we humbly come before You thanking You for allowing us one more new day of Mercy and Grace! For we know that it is nothing that we have, could or would’ve done that deserved such lovingkindness, but it’s only because of Your Sovereign Will that we live, move and have our very being! We dare not take any of Your blessings for granted! Therefore, we bless Your Name for watching over us last nite and waking us up this morning, saved, safe and clothed with a right mind to do those things that are pleasing in Your sight!  We understand that none of us have arrived at perfection, yet You have done so much  and keep on blessing us! Therefore,  Father, we ask You to forgive us for anything we have done, spoken or thought that was not pleasing to You. We have absolutely nothing to offer to suffice such mercy, but total reliance upon The Sacrificial Atonement of Your Son, Jesus Christ!

Abba Father, we bless You for keeping us safely tucked under Your Wings, from all hurt, harm and danger. As we start this day, give us an attitude of gratitude. Clear our minds and hearts from the clutter of this ungodly world, so that we can hear Your Voice leading, guiding and instructing us as we go out and come in! Help us to make the best of each moment to be be a witness reflecting The Glory of Your Light to this dark, lost and dying world!

Let us not whine and whimper over things we have no control over, but in everyting to give thanks for this is Your Will concerning us. We know that whatever happens, You’re able to turn it around for our highest good and Your Greatest Glory! As we continue to see sin through God’s eyes and acknowledge it as evil, when we sin, let us be quick to repent, and confess with our mouth any wrong doing, and receive the forgiveness of God that cleanses us from the guilt and shame of unrighteousness.
And when this world closes in on, draw us into Your shadow where we find a quiet space to seek Your Peace and Power. Give us the confidence to know that when we’re pushed beyond our limits and can’t seem to find the proper words to pray, You listen to our heart and interpret every moan and groan of our spirit.

Abba Father, continue to bless us that we may be a blessing to others. Keep us strong that we may help the weak.. Keep us uplifted, encouraging our souls that we may share words of encouragement to those who need comfort and assurance that You are with them also!

Sweet Jesus, we pray for those who are lost and can’t find their way. We pray for those who are misjudged and misunderstood. As we pray for those who don’t know You intimately, we Bless Your Holy Name for that glorious day whenHoly Spirit opened our eyes, breaking up our fallow hearts, revealing Your Son, JESUS, allowing us to believe and trust HIM as The ONLY ETERNAL SAVIOR AND LORD! Knowing that no man can come to you, except You draw them, we ask that Holy Spirit prick the hearts of all those who have yet to acknowledge You as their personal Savior! Create in them a clean heart and renew in them a right spirit that they may confess a “sincere YES” to Your free gift of so great a Salvation!

Quicken the hearts of the backslidders who have drifted away from Your Will, convict them to cry out in Godly-repentance, “Father, forgive me, save me from myself and restore me back to the sheepfold!” Holy Spirit, You Who search the hearts and minds and know those who are sincere today retrieve their souls from the Kingdom of Darkness! Lead them to a local church home where they we be loved, nurtured, taught the Bread of Life, empower them thru the Baptism of Holy Spirit that they may live the rest of their lives, denying self and glorifying Your Name!

Precious Jesus, we know that only God changes people and things. We pray for all my sisters and brothers, for every family member in their households and all of their friends. We decree and declare peace, love, joy, wisdom and wholeness in their homes and into their lives! Father we’re believing that every one of Your children whose body is being attacked by all manner of sicknesses, disease, mental disorders, drug addictions are being healed at this very moment. For Your Word has decreed that You were wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities and by Your Stripes we were healed!

We’re decreeing that as Your people align their lives with Your Word, You shall  supply all of our needs according to Your Riches in Christ Jesus! As we intercede on behalf of our brothers and sisters, we’re believing that there’s an immediate release of miraculous Favor and Prosperity, unexpected promotions, opening up opportunities for entrepreneurship, increased education grants, lower interest mortgage rates, supernatural debt cancellations, book contracts and overturning legal decisions to giving Your people sudden victories! In Jesus Name! Amen 3x!

Lord, we’re believing You, our Source of everything that pertains to life and godliness, to preserve Your elect in the midst of every tests that we through! Father, we’re looking towards the hills from whence cometh all our help, crying out, “Send now help from Zion! 

Lord, we lift up every believer who is experiencing grief, emotional anxiety and weariness, those who have been victimized by senseless killings, those who are caretakers of ailing loved ones, those who are struggling to remain hopeful as they sit at the bedsides of those whom the doctors have gone as far as they know, yet today they’re determined to hold on to Your Hand by faith today! As You remember our brothers and sisters whose lives have been ripped apart by fires and mudslides, storms, floods and earthquakes; both natural and spiritually, Father, keep us constantly aware of YOUR PRESENCE, fully-confident that You shall bring everyone of us out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed, restored and recovering every reward as promised in Your Word!

We thank You for comforting and assuring us that regardless of who is seated in the oval office, congress or supreme court, YOU ARE ETERNALLY SEATED UPON THE CIRCLE OF THE EARTH AND ABSOLUTE POWER BELONGS TO YOU!

Therefore, in faithful obedience, we lift up the political, legislative, military, judicial, social service, business, religious leaders! Dear Jesus, we’re trusting You to visit them in the nite seasons with signs, visions and dreams touching the hearts of each one of them! Grace them to be the holy humble examples in their homes, marketplace, communities and churches and to this world that will cause those who are in their sphere of influence to repent, love, trust and live everyday of life serving and glorifying You, Our Heavenly Father!

Holy Spirit, as we pray, we’re believing that every demonic-induced spirit of fear, failure, rejection, hopelessness and disappointment be defeated by Your Anointing and that the Spirit Love, Joy, Peace, Power and a Sound Mind is being released now, in Jesus Name! We’re trusting that each morning Your children will awaken empowered with assuring grace to accomplish every assignment and sleep peacefully every nite, confident of earnest hope-filled tomorrows!

Lord, we wait in confident quietness, trusting wholly that suddenly, every worker of iniquity is trembling in fear, shame and defeat, running away from Your people, knowing that in spite of their threats, 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, in faith with exceeding joy, we submit this prayer to The King of Glory, honoring, thanking and praising You, BELIEVING that every request and supplication that has been set before You today… IS DONE! IN THE EXALTED NAME OF JESUS THE CHRIST! AMEN 3X!

Now, every soul that is standing in agreement, SEAL THIS PRAYER BY ENCOURAGING ONE SOMEBODY, LETTING THEM KNOW THAT JESUS CARES!

SELAH!

Abba Father, thank You for 1 more new day! Thank You for awakening us to enjoy all the many blessings that You have provided for each one of us! We bless You for fresh Mercy and Grace! We know that there’s nothing we have, canor will ever do that entitles us to be benefactors of such benignity, but You continue to look beyond all our faults to provide all that we shall ever need! For this cause, we bow in absolute humility reverently declaring that there is none like You in Heaven or Earth! In You we live, move and have our very being!

Sweet Jesus, we glorify Your Name above every other name because You Alone are Savior, Lord and Redeemer! Because of the shedding of Your Atoning Sacrificial Blood, we have been brought into right fellowship with our Heavenly Father, whereby we have the same blessings and privileges that You have as the 1st Begotten of The Father! We rejoice in praise singing,”If it had not been for The Lord on my side, where would we be!”

Lord Jesus, in light of all that’s happening in the earth today, we’re eternally grateful that You have taught us to say, it is well with our souls! Because You have assured us that even in these days of impending chaos, terror, drama and threatening destruction, our lives are hidden in You and You are yet in control of all things! We bless You for the confidence that we have in knowing that the safest place in the whole world in in YOUR PERFECT WILL! 

Father, while we strive to please You in all that we do, say and think, because of the frailty and flaws of our fickled flesh, we tend to all fall short of Your righteous expectations, willfully and unwillfully! Therefore, we come, repenting and confessing our sins to our Great High Priest, Who can be touched with the feelings of our infirmities, asking that You forgive us, wash us in The Blood of Jesus, restore us into the sheepfold and strengthen us by the indwelling Power and Presence of Holy Spirit that we may live our lives reflecting the abundance of Your Love, Grace and Mercy to a lost and dying world! Father, we believe that the continuous outpouring of Your Divine Favor towards us will cause multitudes of men, women, boys and girls to come asking, what must I do to be saved! In Jesus Name, Amen 3x!
Precious Lord, we know that no man can come to You, except You draw them, therefore we ask that You prick the hearts of every lost and back-slidden soul with a personal desire to draw nigh to You!  You’ve promised that when we draw near to You, You shall draw near to us! We pray that You save the lost, reclaim every back-slider by putting a “sincere and committed YES”, into their hearts and minds! Enable them to come today and receive You as their personal Savior and Lord of their lives! Bless, place  and settle them into a church home today where they will be embraced with The Love of God, encouraged, nurtured and strengthened in Your Word to live the rest of their lives, glorifying The Light of Your Likeness to those yet ensnared by the darkness of this dying world! In Jesus Name, AMEN 3X!

Precious Lord, we lift us all those who are grieving the lost of a loved one, those who have been victimized by all manner of abuse and neglect, those who’s marriages are in turmoil and threatening separation or divorce,  financial distress due to lost of employment, bankruptcy and foreclosures! We plead the Blood of Jesus over thoughts, spirits of fear, doubt, anxiety, oppression, depression and confusion, because we know that You are not the author of these demonic thoughts and feelings, but You have given us who have put our trust in Your Son Jesus, Your Righteousness, Love and Joy in The Holy Ghost!  As we lift up every believer who is yet holding on to your Hand by faith today, we pray that You will release a double anointing of Your Divine Peace, Power, Supernatural Strength, Provision, Prosperity and Protection. In Jesus Name! It is so!

We ask also Father, that You preserve them thru every test that You have allowed us to go thru confidently assure that You will bring us out restored, renewed, refreshed and with the reward as You have promised them in your Word. Encourage our hearts, with Your Word that empowers us with an overwhelming consciousness of Your Abiding Presence causing us to confuse our enemies with exuberant praise and worship lifting up The Only Wise Savior and Lord Jesus!

Father, we believe that You  will touch our brother, touch our sister who has been afflicted by any sickness and disease, including the spirit of cancer, heart, lung, liver and kidney failure, high/low blood pressure, HIV/Aids, arthritis, dementia, autism and other mental disorders! Heal, rebuke and cast out every symptom and trace of  all physical, mental dysfunction at the root, for Your Name Sake. We come into agreement with your Word and declare that Your stripes have redeemed and healed us and we’re yet standing on your promises that the prayer of faith shall save the sick and raise them up, In Jesus Name! And as You are strengthening these, we ask that you also invigorate, encourage and replenish the spirits, souls, minds and bodies of those who are charged to care for their loved ones!

Father, once again, we lift up our children, our grand and great grands and by faith we’re canceling every plot and strategic scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them! As we commit them into Your providential care, we have the blessed assurance that because You have a plan and purpose for their lives too, every one of their steps and stops are being Divinely orchestrated by Your Sovereign Eyes! We believe that The Blood of Jesus is covering them and shielding them from the snare of Satanic deception, In Jesus Name, Amen 3x!

Abba, we lift up every Bishop, Pastor, Overseer, Evangelist, Preach, Teacher, Deacon, auxiliary leader and member! We ask for an immediate manifestation of that special miracle for each and every one of them who are yet standing on the wall proclaiming Your Word under the Power, Conviction and Anointing of Holy Spirit. Undergird them with Your Anointing and Holy Conviction to carry out their assignment, under the direction of Holy Spirit. Cover them as they go in and out amongst Your people and those who would seek to discredit, hinder and even destroy their faith, faithfulness and ministry,You have ordained. Grace Your menservants and maidens to be authentic examples of holiness, in their homes, churches and community that will cause everyone who comes into contact with them to fall deeply in love, trust wholly in and live their lives faithfully serving You! In Jesus Name, AMEN 3X!

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

Knowing that You Sovereignly Rule and Reign over the affairs of mankind, we’re praying as You have instructed us, for the leaders of our nation and the world, every corporate, judicial, education, financial, health care institutions, public service and military individuals! We’re trusting that You are touching their minds and hearts, speaking to them in dreams and visions and letting them know that 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 ears and hearts are being continuously opened to hear and obey Your Will! Lord Jesus, we’re standing on Your Word as decreed that The government of this world shall rest upon Your shoulders and that You are The Eternal King of Kings and Lord of Lords!

We ask that Holy Spirit continue to open the eyes of understanding so that Your people are not easily deceived by those who would desire to entrap Your children in bondage to lustful desires  which You have delivered us from. We declare and decree that every demonic-induced spirit of  anxiety, temptation, lasciviousness, addiction, greed, covetness, unforgiveness, resentment, rejection, self-hate, suicide, fear and failure, guilt and shame is already defeated by Your Anointing and that the Spirit of Love, Power and Sound-mindness is being released now, in Jesus Name AMEN 3X!

Heavenly Father, as we rejoice now in confident quietness, we trust that all workers of iniquity are suddenly trembling in terror and departing in shameful defeat, because You have heard the voice of our weeping, our supplications and received our prayers as sweet savor coming up before Your Sovereign Throne of Grace and Mercy!

ABBA FATHER, WE  NOW THANK, HONOR AND PRAISE YOU, BECAUSE WE  WHO KNOW YOUR NAME, PUT OUR TRUST IN YOU, KNOWING THAT YOU LORD HAVE NOT FORSAKEN ANY THAT SEEK YOU! WE SEAL OUR PRAYER, IN THE EXALTED NAME OF JESUS.  HALLELUJAH &AMEN 3x!

HOLY WAR!

HOLY WAR

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

And he said, Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat, Thus saith the Lord unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s. 2 Chronicles 20:15

..”for nothing restrains the Lord from saving by many or by few” 1 Samuel 14:6b

 

In The 3rd Chapter of The Book of Ecclesiastics The Preacher, Solomon, offers his observations on the purpose of times and seasons that God appoints throughout our journey in an attempt to answer the age old question of humanity, “Why am I here?”  Reflecting back, I recognize that my time on Terra Firma continues to swiftly transition through certain uncertainties, predictable resistance and uncommon clarity, leaving me totally dependent upon my Creator!

The Holy Writ alerts us to the inevitable reality that there is a Devil on the loose, who has dedicated himself to fulfilling his #1 Mission: to steal, kill and destroy the peace, comfort, joy and hope of everyone who has been created in the image of God!  Hence, Beloved, contrary to this contemporized Millennuim psyche, there’s a war going on! Therefore, as The Apostle Peter advised, we should expect to be tempted by tests, trials, trouble and tragedy! (Ref. 1 Peter 4:12-13)

However, along with this ominous warning, our Heavenly Father also gives us His Eternal Assurance, “And the LORD, he it is that doth go before thee; he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed.” Deuteronomy 31:8

Unfortunately, most of our attacks come from unseen forces! Satan has become quite proficient in throwing rocks and hiding his hands. Then he sits back relishing the chaos, confusion, havoc and vengence that we wreak upon one another. Notwithstanding, God has equipped those with a discerning spirit, with weapons that are not carnal, but mighty through God, enabling us to triumphantly invade and eradicate the forces of evil every time! (Ref. 2 Corinthians 10:4; Romans 8:37)

Just knowing that we’re encompassed about by enemy forces is not always enough, you gotta know when to hold ’em, and when to fold ’em, huh? In order to be successful in your conquest, it is vital that you remain strategically positioned to hear the instructions of The Captain of The Lord’s Host. Truth be told, while God teaches our hands to war, some battles are not meant for us to fight! #Seriously!

Just like King Jehoshaphat, when challenged by demonic intimidation, we must resist the temptation to bow down to our fears and taking matters into our own hands; but immediately turn our face toward our Master in fervent prayer and worship! By making prayer your daily regiment, we build up our most holy faith. When the enemy comes upon us suddenly, instead of retreating to imminent defeat and surrendering to hopelessness and despair, we automatically fire up our faith in the Trustworthiness of The Power and Promises of God! God prefers Faithfulness above sacrafice!

Strapped in unwavering holy confidence that Greater is He who is in us than anything that stands against us, we boldly march towards adversity, trusting that our God will turn it around in our favor and make it work together for our highest good and His Greatest Glory! (Ref.  1 John 4:4; Romans 8:28)

Prayer and Praiz are the believers emblems, signifing that our hope rests in God and not in ourselves, ordaining The Strength of God to move on our behalf and sending terror throughtout the enemies camp! 

Didjaheardat? When YOU REALLY BELIEVE GOD, IT JUS CONFUSES HELL! LOL! #HOLYWAR!

Abba Father, once again, we are blessed to come before You, In the Magnificent, All Powerful Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus, rejoicing, praising and thanking You for blessing us to see this brand new day. We humbly acknowledging that it was not because of any goodness of our own that we live, move and have our being, we quickly thank You, Heavenly Father, for another opportunity to embrace and enjoy the abundance of Your Mercy, Your Grace, Your Power and Your Peace!
Heavenly Father, it is with unspeakable joy that we thank You for being The God of our Salvation, Deliverance, Breakthrough and Provision.

Father while we slept safely in our homes last night, we know that there will be reports of acts of  domestic terrorist, shootings, robberies, accidents and all manner of maladies, and we will not fail to thank You, for it was only You who kept us alive! While there’s no exemption for those who’re committing our lives to you, we’re so very thankful that even amidst these days of impending chaos, threats, hatred, anxiety, fear, confusion, deception and destruction, the safest place in this whole world is still in YOUR PERFECT WILL! 
Precious Lord,  while we’re experiencing an unexpected shaking of this nation, we yet believe that You are setting up a massive exodus and deliverance! We’re trusting that a Spirit of Godly-repentance is is swelling up all over this world and that the end result will be multitudes of lost souls shall be saved and those who have walked away from You shall be re-claimed!
Sweet Jesus, we’re trusting that Holy Spirit is imparting a ‘COMMITED YES’ into their heart and in their mind provoking all those who are outside of The Ark of Covenent Grace, to come to You today and receive You as their  personal Lord and Savior. We thank You now for blessing, directing and settling them into a local church home , where they will be embraced with Love, encouraged, nurtured, taught so that their lives are transformed by The Glory of The Lord!
Lord, we pray for every soul who is going thru a season of grief because of the lost of a loved one, those whose lives have been victimized and bankrupted by divorce, lost of employment, disappointment, hopelessness and despair! We plead The BLOOD OF JESUS over every demonic thought, Spirits of anxiety, oppression, depression and confusion, because we know that You are not the author of these confusing demonic thoughts and feelings, but You have given us who have put our personal trust in Your Son Jesus, Your Righteousness, Love and Joy in The Holy Ghost!
Abba Father, as we entreat Your Presence, we lift up every believer who is yet holding on to your Hand by faith today, that You will release a double anointing of Your Divine Peace, Power, Supernatural strength, provision, prosperity and protection! While we’re yet praying, You will strengthen us to persevere thru every test that You have allowed, confidently assured that You will bring us out restored, renewed, refreshed and with the reward us as You have promised in your Word! Lord, as we walk through the valleys, we ask that You anoint us for such a time with supernatural confidence, courage empowering us with an overwhelming consciousness of Your Abiding Presence and the immutability of Your Word! 
Abba Father, we lift up our childrren, their children and their children, by faith we cancel every plot an scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them. As we commit them into Your Profidential care, we release The Spirit of Truth and Excellence upon their spirit souls, minds and bodies! It is with sincere gratitude, we gratefully acknowledge that You have a plan and purpose for their lives, also! Therefore we have The Blessed Assure that even when we can’t see them, their steps and stops are beingly Divine orchestrated by Your eyes! In Jesus Name, AMEN 3X!
 Almighty Father,  we pray, according to Your Will,  for the leaders of our nation, be that Federal and Local goverment, corporate, judicial, education, public service, health care and financial institutions! We’re believing that You will touch their minds,  break up the fallow hearts, speak to them in dreams and visions, let them know that You Who Sit Enthroned Above the Heavens is keeping record of the deeds of every man’s heart and will reward accordingly!
As we lift up our spiritual leaders, we’re asking a special blessing upon each and every one of them who are yet standing on the wall proclaiming Your Word under the conviction and anointing of Holy Spirit. We pray that you will Grace them to be the examples in their homes, churches and community that will cause everyone who comes into contact with them to fall in love, trust wholly in and to live their lives serving You, Our Heavenly Father. 
We pray, Heavenly Father, that You will stir up the hearts and minds of all those who are professing Your Name! We believe that You  are increasing their desire to make our election sure, walking circumspectly in pursuit of an even greater personal, intimate relationship with our Heavenly Father through fellowship of Holy Spirit that we might prove what is the perfect and acceptable Will of The Lord Jesus for our lives!

Father, as we pray, touch our brother, touch our sister whose body has been afflicted by all manner of sickness and disease, especially the Spirit of cancer, dementia, Alzheimer, stroke, heart disease, kidney failure, arthritis, bi-polar depression and glaucoma! Lord,  rebuke and cast it out at the root, for Your Name Sake. Heavenly Father, You are Alpha and Omega, the same yesterday, today and forever! Even as you walked in this earth healing all who were sick, feeble, lame we know that You’re Well Able and Willing to do the same right now! Lord Jesus, Your Word declares that Your stripes have redeemed us from our sin, but has also healed us and we’re yet standing on your promises that the prayer of faith shall save the sick and raise them up, In Jesus Name! Amen 3x!

Lord, we declare and decree that every demonic-induced spirit of temptation, anxiety, addiction and fear be defeated by Your Burden Removing Yoke Destroying Anointing and that the Spirit of Love, Power and a Sound-mind is being released now into the lives of all those who are calling on You, in Jesus Name!
Father, we wait in confident quietness, rejoicing in hope and trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling, suddenly departing in shame and disgust, is now retreating in defeat because You have heard the voice of our weeping, our supplications and received our prayer as a sweet savor coming up before Your Sovereign Throne of Grace and Mercy!
Abba Father, we stand in agreement with You, Who hears ours prayers and forgives our transgressions!

We yield all that we have, all that we have and all that we hope to be, in obedient reverence before The Hope of all the earth, believing that as Your face shines upon us that, You are making Your ways and salvation known among all nations for You Guide and Rule justly!

GOOD MORNIN’ FAM! GOTTA MOMENT? Ggggllorraaa 2 GOD!

 

Welcome to a new day! We’re rapturous that you have joined us in our Thursdays’ Day of Corporate Fasting & Prayer! We appreciate this opportunity and privilege to entreat The Presence of our Great High Priest, pouring out our hearts desires, concerns, petitions and supplications with Thanksgiving. We know that He delights in our embracing Him in earnest expectation, confident that He Rules Forever by His Power is able to save and deliver us from any of life’s maladies! Let’s go in together …

O, Sweet Wonder! Oh Sweet Wonder! Jesus, The Son of God! Ooohh Sweet Wonder! Oh! Sweet Wonder! Jesus! The Son of God! Here I am to worship, Here I am to bow down, Here I am to say that you’re my God,You’re altogether lovely, Altogether worthy, Altogether wonderful to me! FATHER, I stretch my hand to THEE! No other help I know! If THY withdraw THYSELF from me…where shall I go…

 

Heavenly Father, we come one more time, to thank You for allowing us to see one more today! We have so much to thank You for, and because we refuse to take anything for granted, we praise You for our being able to breathe, see, to hear, walk, talk and even think much less desire to pray this morning! We’re so blessed, because You are an understanding and forgiving God not only have You have done so much for me, You keep right on blessing me over and over again! Abba Father, forgive me this day for everything I have done, said or thought that was not pleasing to Your Heart. I ask now for Your forgiveness, in The Precious Name of Jesus!

As we embrace the day ahead, help us to start this day with a new attitude and loads of gratitude. Please keep us safe from all hurt, harm and danger. Let us make the best of each moment that You gift to us! Lord Jesus, clear our minds so that we can hear from You and cleanse our hearts that we may deny ourselves, trust and obey Your Will!

Dear Lord, please help us to not whine and whimper over things which we have no control. Touch our eyes that we may continue to see sin through God’s eyes and hate what You hate acknowledging it’s wickedness. And when we sin, don’t let us look for excuses but quicken our spirits to repent, confessing to You with our mouths our wrongdoing, and receive Your Gracious Forgiveness!
During these troubling times, where the cares of this world seem to be closing in around us, draw us into the secret place of Your Presence to pray. Comfort us through the Truth that when we’re pushed beyond our limits, we must make prayer our first response and not a last resort! We thank You also for those times when we can’t seem to find the right words to pray, You listen to our hearts, interpreting every moan, groan and sigh of our spirit! Father, we’re eternally grateful that despite of our flaws, fractures and dysfunctions, You are yet able to use us to do Your will ensuring The You Alone get The Glory!

Abba Father, continue to 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 the downtrodden.As we remember from whence we’ve come, Sweet Jesus, we pray for those who are lost and can’t find their way. We pray for those who are misjudged and misunderstood. We pray for those who don’t know You intimately. We pray for those who don’t believe that You sent Jesus, not to condemn us, but to convict us of our lawlessness and to free us from the power, pain and penalty of Sin.

When we look back over our lives, we can’t help but cry out, Thankya Jesus!  for that Blessed Day when You opened our hearts enabling us to believe and receive the wonderful Revelation of the Saving Grace of Jesus Christ! We know that because You are not biased neither are You a respecter of persons, this same Grace is yet available to any who will trust you enough to ask!

Precious Lord, because no man can come to the Father except You draw them, Father, we intercede on behalf of every unsaved soul, please quicken their hearts and minds with a Spirit of Godly-repentance that they will cry out to You today, with a “sincere YES” to Your Amazing Gift of Grace thereby receiving You Alone, as their personal Savior and Lord! We’re believing that You will direct their footsteps and place them and settle them into a church home today where they will be nurtured in The Ways of Truth and Life.

Abba Father, put a “committed YES” in the hearts and minds of every backslider that today will be the day that they come back to You and come back to YOUR local church where they willfully submit their lives to the sound teachings of Your Word, and learn to deny themselves, to love and live their lives walking to please You First trusting fully that all other things pertaining to this life will be added to them!

Father,  we lift up our brothers, sisters and every family member and friend! We rebuke the Spirit of distress, evil foreboding and dread, confident that faith in God not only changes others, it changes us and only You, O God, have the Power to change everything! As we’re praying for peace, unity, love and joy in our homes, we believe that Your Divine Favor is now being poured out upon each one as their faith is rising to a level that they’re faithful and obedient to put Your Word above their will and desires, thereby releasing supernatural abundance in every area of their lives. Because You are Jehovah Jireh, as we put You first, all our needs being are met according to Your Riches in Glory. In Jesus Name!

Abba Father, we’re lifting up our children, our children’s children by faith, committing them into Your care, realizing that You have a plan and purpose for their lives too! We have the blessed assurance that their steps and stops are being ordered by Your eyes! We rebuke the spirits of bullying, fear, failure, anxiety, low self-esteem, lethargy and dyslexia ! We release a Spirit of Peace, Hope, Excellence, Empowerment, Wisdom, Understanding, Confidence, Security and Success! We thank You that because the angels of the Lord shall be encamped around them, no weapon that is formed against them shall prosper! In Jesus Name! AMEN 3X!

Father, we now lift up every spiritual leader, asking that You grant an immediate manifestation of that special miracle for each and every one of them who are yet standing on the wall proclaimingYour Word under the convicting Power and Anointing of Holy Spirit! Sweet Jesus, we’re trusting and believing that You will Grace them to be the examples in their homes, churches and community that will cause everyone who comes into contact with them to fall in love with You, trust wholly in and commit to live their lives faithfully and obediently serving You!

As You have taught us, we pray also for every government, national and state legislative, corporate, judicial, education and health care leader! Touch their minds and hearts that they will be continuously opened to hear and obey Your Will! And Father, we pray that You speak to them in dreams and visions letting them know that You Who Sit Enthroned Above the Heavens is keeping record of the deeds of every man’s heart and will reward accordingly! Lord Jesus, we’re standing on Your Immutable 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!

Precious Lord, as we yield our lives to Your Sovereign Providential Care, we declare and decree that every demonic-induced spirit of sickness and disease, all yokes of fear, anxiety, weariness, oppression, depression, addiction, perversion, covetousness, bitterness, bigotry, resentment, racism, unforgiveness, hopelessness, doubt, unbelief and fear is being exposed, bound and defeated by THE BLOOD OF JESUS NOW!

As we’re praying, we’re believing that You are releasing a double portions of Your Yoke Destroying, Burden Bearing,, Spirit of Love, Power, Sound-mindness, Peace, Purpose and Prosperity into the lives of Your people , in Jesus Name!

Father, we wait humbly in confidence and quietness, trusting wholly that every worker of iniquity is suddenly trembling in terror and departing in shameful defeat! We know 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!

Heavenly Father, we believe that as we pray these words are being conceived and received into the heart, mind and every eye that sees them and every mouth that confesses them! We trust that souls are being emboldened knowing that there is no problem, circumstance, or situation greater than Our God. Give us hope-filled rest that every battle is in Your Almighty Hands for You are El Shaddai!

Abba Father, we seal this prayer with a HEARTY THANKYA JESUS AND A HOLY HALLELUJAH, believing that IT IS DONE! In The Exalted Name of OUR REDEEMER, JESUS. Amen 3X!

Now every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, GO TELL ONE SOMEBODY THAT JESUS IS LORD 2 THE GLORY OF GOD OUR FATHER!

Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything, according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him. 1 John 5:14-15

 

Ever found yourself at the end of your rope? That’s silly; of course you have! We’ve all been there! But did you ever think that that’s exactly where GOD wants you? Probably NOT, huh?

According to 21st Century world view, we’ve been led to believe that you, as the master of your own life, will never face a challenge that you can’t get past. After all you’re an intellectually stimulated, highly educated, acutely sophisticated and exceptionally self-sufficient individual, right? Wrong!

As you’ve probably figured out by now, there are some things, try as you may, ‘you still don’t know how to fix this mess’, huh? But again, GOD sets it up, jus like dat? He never intended us to live life independent of GODSELF! Where do you think fellowship began? That’s exactly right; like everything else, in the mind of God!

Unfortunately, GOD knows that except we have these “impossible” situational intrusions, you know that thing that seems to just pop-up outta no where blocking our path, there’s a high probability that some of us wouldn’t even think we needed GOD! Don’t forget GOD knows your heart! So don’t even try to wiggle your way out of this Truth!

Every so often, we find ourselves smack-dab-in-the-middle of time-sensitive circumstances where you just need one somebody to talk it over with. Even if they can’t change your situation, right? So you call your Mama and your Daddy, your BFF, your Dawg and errrbody else you can think of; hoping, that if somebody just listened, it would ease the pain, frustration and helplessness jus enough to bring a bleep of clarity. Or, perhaps make you feel like at least they care! But then again, can you really trust them to not put your business out there on social media blast or even worst, alter their impression of you?

Beloved, we have this confidence! God is never shocked by anything and He knows everything! And to top that, whenever we call Him, He shows up! And whenever He shows up, He’s never empty-handed. He has all the answers that you and I will ever need in this lifetime and the world to come. 

Truth be told, at the end of the day, who else can you depend on like Jesus? C’mon nah, U already know what I’m talking about… that thing, that situation, that person who’s got your heart so troubled, k? Well, stop procrastinating and start talking to JESUS! HE’S ALWAYS WAITING!

C’mon Now! Bow your head (pride) and your heart (shame) and like them Ol’ Skool Mothers said, ‘Jus take it to The Lawd in pray’r’!

TRUST 2 KNOW, GOD IS GRACIOUS AND HE SPECIALIZES IN MAKING WRONG THINGS RIGHT! OUR HEAVENLY FATHER LISTENS!

SELAH!

Pause, Ponder, Pray & Praiz!
