THE CALLED vs THE CHOSEN!

MORNING GLORAAA

ETERNAL TRUTHS!

But when the Jews saw the crowds, they were filled with jealousy and began to contradict what was spoken by Paul, reviling him. 46 And Paul and Barnabas spoke out boldly, saying, “It was necessary that the word of God be spoken first to you. Since you thrust it aside and judge yourselves unworthy of eternal life, behold, we are turning to the Gentiles.

47 For so the Lord has commanded us, saying, “‘I have made you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.'”48 And when the Gentiles heard this, they began rejoicing and glorifying the word of the Lord, and as many as were appointed to eternal life believed.

49And the word of the Lord was spreading throughout the whole region. 50 But the Jews incited the devout women of high standing and the leading men of the city, stirred up persecution against Paul and Barnabas, and drove them out of their district.

51 But they shook off the dust from their feet against them and went to Iconium. 52 And the disciples were filled with joy and with the Holy Spirit.

 

Down thru time, much discussion has persisted regarding Divine Election. Yet the Scriptures testify, while many are called few are chosen. Such controversy has lead some to assert that GOD has predesignated a CERTAIN number of seats in His Kingdom and that’s it! TRUTHBTOLD, GOD calls ALL men to GODSELF, YET HE FORCES NONE 2 COME! That leaves the responsibility and the response up to each and everyone of us, personally and individually! We have the power to make the choice whether to accept the invitation or reject it! #WOW #ijs!!!

According to our text, some of the more outstanding Jews, believed that based soley on their ethnicity, they were the only ones privileged to be called GOD’s Elect! While those unlucky enough to be born into the barbarian race (Gentiles) were destined to accept their fate as substandard humans, unworthy and undeserving of the rights and privileges exclusively bestowed upon GOD’S CHOSEN!

However, when Paul and Barnabas showed up at the Synagogue, finding these previously rejected Gentiles were hungry to hear and actually begged them to preach the WORD OF GOD, they agreed! That next Sabbath the Synagogue was overflowing with both Jew and Gentiles, who eagerly came to hear them preach. Yet, instead of welcoming the outsiders in, the elite Jews of the community were so taken aback with anger, jealousy, envy and resentment that they accused Paul and Barnabas of blaspheming against GOD!

However, much to their dismay, it didn’t stop these radical preachers from sharing The Gospel of Jesus Christ! In fact, it provoked them to even more holy boldness that they began to serve notice on their Jewish brethren that while God had indeed revealed Himself and His Word to them first, their continuous blatant dishonor, disregard, disobedience and willful rejection had opened up the opportunity for the Gentiles to become willing partakers of God’s Divine MERCY and GRACE through His Son, JESUS CHRIST!

When the Gentiles HEARD this and BELIEVED, unimaginable joy erupted from their grateful hearts that they began to glorify God with such fervency, igniting outrage amongst the so-called prominent devout Jewish men and women, who immediately expelled the Preachas out of the region!

With their assignment being successfully accomplished, Paul and Barnabas, following their Master’s Command, shook the dust off their feet against their accusers and kept it moving!

…NEXT!

#Didjaheardat? I GUESS TIMES HAVEN’T CHANGED THAT MUCH, huh?

BUT…GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD, THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON! AND WHOSOEVER WILL BELIEVE, ACCEPT AND RECEIVE HIM AS THEIR PERSONAL SAVIOR AND LORD SHALL BE SAVED! (Ref. John 3:16)

THE HERITAGE OF THE FOOLISH !

 

MORNING GLORAAA

 

ETERNAL TRUTHS!

 

Surely He scorns the scornful, But gives grace to the humble. The wise shall inherit glory, But shame shall be the legacy of fools. Proverbs 3:34-35

The heart of a fool is shapened by his continuous rejection of Godly Wisdom and Understanding and is committed to the ridicule of righteousness! God treats that man with contempt therefore bequeaths him the legacy of shame!

BUT GOD shall establish the humble, who refrain from wickedness, esteeming the soundness of Godly Wisdom with Understanding, with enduring riches of glory, honor, safety, discretion, inner peace and Eternal Life!

Good understanding giveth favour: but the way of transgressors is hard.

Prov. 13:15

MAN’S DECISIONS DETERMINE WHETHER HE RECEIVES HIS JUST PENALTY OR INHERITS GOD’S GRACE AND FAVOR! #ijs…LIVE WISELY, LIVE WELL!

THE HERITAGE OF A FOOL!

GOOD MORNING FAM! GOTTA MOMENT? Good God Almighty!

 

Once again, we are delighted that you’ve joined us in our Weekly Corporate Fast and Prayer! In times like these, it’s incumbent upon those 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 THRONE together! AMEN 3X!

 

When I come into His Presence, I humble myself! I lift up both my hands, and I begin to worship Him! I worship Him! For all that He has done for me; redeemed and set me free. And because, jus because HE IS GOD!

 

Heavenly Father, we come before You King Jesus, first thanking You for blessing us to see one more day! We recognize it’s only because of Your Faithful Love that we’re able to embrace this opportunity and enjoy the abundance of Your Mercy, Your Grace, Your Power and Your Peace! We’re thankful that because You, knowing our frame, continue looking beyond our human faults,frailties, fickleness and iniquities and yet You minister to every one of our need! We humbly acknowledge You as The God of all Life, of our Salvation, our Deliverance, Breakthrough and Provision!

Sweet Holy Spirit, as we embrace the day ahead, Holy Spirit, help us to be ever mindful of Your benevolence, and maintain an attitude of all consuming gratitude as we’re trusting You to keep us safe from all hurt, harm and danger. Clear our minds so that we can hear from You and cleanse our hearts that we may deny ourselves, and commit to do Your Will.

Precious Lord, as we look around this country 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! In Jesus Name!

Holy Father, please help us to not whine and whimper 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 when this world seems to close in on us, please help us to follow the example that our Lord and Savior has given us to and slip away to our secret quiet place to pray. When we’re pushed beyond our limited abilities, let Prayer be our 1st response! Give us the mind to bow before Our Heavenly High Priest, casting our cares upon the Only Wise God and Savior! We know than 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, as we pray for Your children everywhere, for every family member and friends, we’re 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 believing that Your 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! We pray for all those who have a mind to sacrifice their will on The Altar of Your Will, expecting that You will reward us with supernatural abundance in every area of their lives, In Jesus Name!

We thank You for hearing the hearts of those who have never accepted Your Son Jesus as their personal Savior and Lord! We are thankful that Holy Spirit is quickening that stony heart now with a “SINCERE YES” 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 and claim them as Your Child. We Thank You for leading and guiding them to a local church, planting them in Your Vineyard, where they shall be 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 You! Father, arrest them In The Holy Ghost, convict them to declare a fresh “COMMITTED YES” to Your Purpose and Plan for their lives! Revive the Revelation that You Alone are The Hope of This Life and The Life to come and make today their day to come back to You and unite them to YOUR church with a determination to submit their lives to the sound teachings of Your Word, learn to love and live their lives walking to please You First!

Father, remember our children, our grands and great-grand children! We declare and decree that TODAY every curse that’s been ordered against their lives is overruled, canceled and every scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them is aborted now! As we commit them into Your Providential care, realizing that You also have a Plan and Purpose for their lives, we have the Blessed Assurance that their steps and stops are being ordered by Your All-seeing Eyes! Therefore, 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, souls, minds and bodies, releasing a Spirit of Love, Holiness, Wholeness and Excellence to fulfill their God ordained destiny, in Jesus Name it is so!

Heavenly Father, according to Your WORD, we pray for the leaders of our nation, government, legislative, judicial, corporate education, financial, education, publlic service, healthcare institutions and the world! 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 repent, 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!

Abba, we lift up every Apostle, Bishop, Pastor, Overseer, Evangelist, Preacher and Teacher, Prophet, Missionary, Deacon, auxiliary leader/member, choir director/member, praise team and musician, usher, nurse, driver, parking attendant and custodial worker! Undergird them with Your Anointing and conviction to carry out their assignment, under the direction of Holy Spirit. Cover them as they go in and out amongst Your people and those who would seek to discredit, hinder and even destroy their faith, faithfulness and ministry,You have ordained!

Lord, we know that You have cautioned us, to not look at the temporary things but to focus our hearts on the eternal, yet You know the frailness of our flesh, and how easily we’re provoked, tempted to become overwhelmed by the cares of this world! You know that every day is not the same and sometimes our days are spent beneath clouds of evil forebodings, while our nites are plagued with restlessness, despondency and hopelessness! Lord, You know whose 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, You know the hearts of the widows, the caretakers, the downcast who have born the heat of the day, those who pushed and prayed us through and now find themselves outcast and neglected! Lord, give them sweet Peace, Comfort and Confidence to know that their labor is never in vain!

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

Father, because You have committed Your Word towards us, no trouble, test or trial can come near us, except You have allowed it to train us to live each day solely depending on You. We thank Holy Spirit, 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 praises of Your Eternal Magnificence, Honor and Glory!

Abba Father, we’re asking You for a Divine Intervention of Your Supernatural Power, Strength, Health, Wholeness, Encouragement, Provision, Prosperity and Protection! Keep us constantly aware of YOUR PRESENCE and fully confident that Christ in Us Is The Hope of Glorraa!

We declare and decree that 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! Because of The Lord’s Mercy, we are not consumed and The Spirit of Love, Power and a Sound-mind and Purpose is being released into the lives of Your people, in Jesus Name!

Lord, while there are so many other things that we have yet to mention, we’re trusting that as You search our hearts, You are not just able, but You’re willing to do anything that we ask or think according to You Perfect Will, we’re believing You to fix it, Jesus, as only You can, in Jesus Name!

Wonderful 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! Therefore, 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, CARE ENUFF 2 SHARE WITH SOMEBODY WHO NEEDS 2KNO THAT JESUS LOVES AND CARES ABOUT EVERYBODY! #ijs! #FRONTLINEMINISTRY!

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

Good Morning my Precious Bros. And Sistas! GOTTA MOMENT?

Didjaknowthat the only reason u r able to read this post is because Our Heavenly Father has blessed u to be alive one more day? And for that, please join us in exalting The Glorious Name of Jesus! As is our custom on Thursdays, we encourage you to join us in our weekly day of Corporate Prayer and Fasting between 6:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Is there any among you sick, weak, afflicted, ill-treated or faint-hearted, then as James 5:13 instructs, let’s pray!

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

 

Abba Father, today, it is with exceeding joy that we entreat Thy Seat of Mercy! Trusting confidently that You have afforded us this awesome honor and privilege not because we deserve it, but based solely on Your Loving-Kindness towards us, that draws us into Your All Emcompassing Presence. Sweet Jesus, we thankya for Your Faithful Obedience to please The Heart of The Father by sacrificing Your Life in our stead, that we might become Sons of The True and Living God! And for this cause, we bow in humble gratitude, fully aware that as we come before You, empty and void of anything that would warrant such awesome graciousness, but because Your Righteousness we are now the beneficiary of All that You are in the Eyes of God!

Jesus, we know that You already know everything about every single one of us, because You are Omnisient and Omnipresent, but because You walked among us, allowing Yourself to be tempted at all point as we are, You learned what we experience in these earthly tabernacles and can be touched with the feelings of our infirmities! Therefore You, as our Great High Priest, are able to intercede on our behalf continuously searching and conveying the thoughts, intents, emotions and physical weaknesses that we’re often unable to articulate to The Father of All Grace, Compassion and Comfort! We thankya Lord, for being our Very Present Help! We ask that You hear our hearts confessing our sins, known and unknown,  that You will apply Your Blood over us, forgiving and cleansing us from all unrighteousness.

Lord, while we try to please You by trusting in Your Word, sometimes, it’s difficult to over-ride the noises of the pestilences, the chaos of uncertainty and the pain of condemnation, guilt, and shame that seems to lure us into the valleys shadowed with danger, fear, anger, bitterness, anxiety, hopelessness and self-doubt! That’s why we gladly run to You, daily finding refuge, peace, restoration that You have prepared for any who would come to You in hope-filled assurance that You will never deny Your Word!

Heavenly Father, we bless You for continuing to renew our strength, understanding and power as we open our hearts to You, by depending and relying only on You. And as we humbly yield our entire being before You, we pray for those who have yet to receive The Saving Grace of Jesus, believing You to ignite a spirit of Godly-repentance that drives them to come today, surrendering their lives to You, confessing  out of their mouths “a sincere YES”  flowing from hearts that seeking a personal relationship with The Only Savior and Lord of Life

Sweet Holy Spirit, we ask You to put a “FRESH COMMITTED  YES” in the heart and mind of every backslider so that this will be their day to come back to You and come back to YOUR  local church that they may be accepted, restored, nurtured, encouraged and committed to live the rest of their lives according to Your Will and Ways.

Father, please touch our brother, touch our sister who has been afflicted by any sickness and disease, including the spirit of cancer, kidney failure, high blood pressure, low blood pressure and rebuke and cast it out at the root, for 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 envigorate, encourage and replenish the spirits, minds and bodies of those who are charged to care for their loved ones!

Lord, as always, we pray for every believer who is yet holding on to Your Hand by faith today, trusting that You will release Divine power, Supernatural strength, consolation, health, provision, prosperity and protection.

We pray also Father, that You preserve them thru the tests that they must go thru and keep them constantly aware of YOUR PRESENCE and fully-confident that at Your pre-determined appointed time, You shall bring them out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and with the reward as You have promised them in Your Word.

Father  God, we lift up every spiritual leader, asking an immediate manifestation of that special miracle for each and every one of them who are yet standing on the wall proclaiming Your Word under the conviction Power and Anointing of Holy Spirit. Continue to open doors and make straight the  paths before them; bind every spirit that’s been assigned to hinder them from fulfiling every vision and dream that You’ve placed in their hearts and minds! Send those to lift their arms, encourage and undergird them as they seek to be a blessing to those that You’ve charged them to shepherd!

Jesus, we’re trusting and believing You to equip them by Your Grace to be the living 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 serving You!

Father, once again, we come lifting up our children, our grandchildren and great-grand children! By faith we rebuke and cancel every scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them! We’re committing them into Your Providential care, covered by The Blood of Jesus! We acknowledge that from their Mothers’ wombis, You 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 and they shall NOT DIE prematurely VUT THEY SHALL LIVE  A LONG LIFE to declare the wonderous works of The LORD!

Precious Lord, stir up the hearts and minds of those who are professing Your Name with a fresh desire and passion 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!

As You Sovereignly Rule and Reign over the affairs of mankind, we’re praying for  President Trump and his family! Surround him with advisors and counselors who have a holy reverence and  can’t resist the directive and instructions of Holy Spirit!  We rebuke ungodly influence assigned over this region and we bind every transmission of evil, wicked and corrupt communication surrounding this nation, as we declare and decree that no weapon that is formed against this nation shall prosper.

Sweet Holy Spirit, endow the hearts of your people with a peace that surpasses all understanding and the confident expectation that because we’re citizens of Your Kingdom, regardless of the mass deceitfulness of this world, our times are in Your Hands and You have promised to protect, provide and preserve the righteous who trust and obey Your Word!

We ask that you continue to open the eyes of understanding so that Your people are not easily deceived by those who would desire to enslave us to everything that which You have delivered us from.

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

Father, we believe that every demonic-induced spirit of temptation, addiction, rejection, self-hate, suicide, fear and failure is already defeated by Your Anointing and that the Spirit of Love, Power and Sound-mindness is being released now, in Jesus Name! We declare and decree that all those who are pregnant with evil and conceives trouble shall give birth to disillusionment. Anyone who digs a hole and scoops it out shall fall into the pit he has made and the trouble he causes on others shall recoil on himself and every violent scheme that he devises against God’s Elect shall come down on his own head.

Father, we rejoice now in confidence and quietness, trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling and suddenly departing in hopeless, helpless, 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, You will not withold Your Mercy from us and Your Love and Your Truth is a wall around us!

Abba Father, we thank You for listening to our prayer and because You are listening, WE KNOW AND BELIEVE THAT WE HAVE RECEIVED THOSE THINGS, OFFERED BEFORE YOU, ACCORDING TO YOUR WILL! THEREFORE, we bow in holy reverence, honor and praise with Thanksgiving! For we trust and believe that it is done! In The Exalted Name of Jesus. Amen & Halleleujah 3X and It Is So!

BE ENCOURAGED!

WHO LET THE DOGS OUT?

WHO LET THE DOGS OUT

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

There are many wayward people, smooth talkers, and deceivers—especially the converts from Judaism. They must be silenced because they are disrupting entire families with their corrupt teachings, all for their dishonest greed. A certain one of them, one of their own prophets, said, “Those Cretans are nothing but liars, worthless beasts, and lazy gluttons.” He certainly knew what he was talking about! For this reason, correct them thoroughly so that their lives will line up with the truths of our faith. instruct them not to pay any attention to Jewish myths or follow the teachings of those who reject the truth,  It’s true that all is pure to those who have pure hearts, but to the corrupt unbelievers nothing is pure. Their minds and consciences are defiled.  They claim to know God, but by their actions they deny him. They are disgusting, disobedient, and disqualified from doing anything good. Titus 1:10-16 TPT

 

 

Mama told me there’d be days like this! BUT, C’mon nah! Who ever thought that progress would be interpreted as truth being despised and irrelevant, deceitfulness, pride, arrogance and greed is extolled while integrity is detested, trust is impaired according to the circumstances of any given moment and hope is deferred as justice bows to social elitism, racial prejudice and party preference! AND ALL THIS IS MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN? #Don’tshoutmedown, nah? A matter of perspective, huh?

TRUTHBTOLD, The Holy Scriptures are being unfolded, live and in living color, right before the eyes of the discerning who yet ascribe to the concept of Biblical Absolutes! Shocking, right? The lawlessness, chaos, confusion, uncertainties, frustration caused by the desolation of moral codes is the inevitable response when the righteous commands are resisted by the rebelliousness of a culture determined to evict the Sovereignty of the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY favoring to do what’s right in their own eyes!

BUT can somebody say, “THANKSB2GOD!” Knowing everything that could, should and would transpire before the foundation of the world, GOD, has made provision through HIS ETERNAL WORD to fulfill HIS DIVINE Plan and Purpose for His most precious of creation’s restoration and reconciliation! Rest assured Beloved, nothing has, can or ever will happen in the earth (and your life) that takes God by surprise! When it seems as if everything is fallen to the dogs and hell is winning, remember, KING JESUS IS STILL ON THE THRONE, REIGNING & RULING OVER THE AFFAIRS OF MANKIND!

And while the rage of the dogs’ barking seems to be drowning out The Voice of Holy Spirit, don’t get it twisted! God’s got them on a lease! Beloved, although we’re living in a season of spiritual darkness, we don’t faint in fear but we boldly walk by faith in the Light of HIS ETERNAL WORD! In the midst of spiritual famine, we remain undaunted, steadfast, courageous, focusing and trusting JESUS, The Author and Finisher of our our Faith.

Your Heavenly Father promised, “ I WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU NOR FORSAKE YOU! (Ref. Heb. 13:5) At God’s appointed time The Glory of God SHALL ARISE,  bringing about a Divine Reversal! The first shall be last and the last shall be first! (Mark 10:31)

Blessed is the one who has made the Lord, his trust! Psalm 40:4

GOD MAKES EVERYTHING BEAUTIFUL, IN HIS OWN TIME! STAND STILL & SEE THE SALVATION OF THE LORD! TRUST2KNO, Destiny’s calling 2 shut the dogs mouths!

NOW, #TRUMPDAT!

Consuming Fire, Sweet Perfume! Your Awesome Presence, fills this room! This is Holy ground…This is Holy ground…we bow down….BELIEVING THAT GOD IS LISTENING, PRAYING, WITH & FOR US…

 

Abba Father, we come before You, humbled by Your Loving-Kindness today, In the Magnificent, All Powerful Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus! While many of us are struggling with the real-time cares of this dark, lost and ungodly world, our spirit man is yet rejoicing, praising and thanking You for blessing us to see THIS brand new day. For we recognize that it was not because of any goodness of our own that we live, move and have our being! We quickly thank You, Father for another opportunity to embrace and enjoy the abundance of Your Mercy, Your Grace, Your Power and Your Peace that comes from hearts wholly leaning and trusting solely upon Your All Sustaining Sufficiency!

Heavenly Father, it is with unspeakable joy that we offer up praises unto You for being The ONLY True, Living Eternal God of our Salvation, our Deliverance, Breakthrough and Provision.With heartfelt humility and sincere gratitude, we acknowledge that Grace, Compassion and Faithfulness that allows You, knowing our frame, YET You look beyond our human frailties, faults and iniquities and minister so graciously to every need pertaining to life and godliness!

Abba Father, hear our prayers reverberating from hearts open, depending and relying SOLELY upon You as we offer up precious praise to You, for that Glorious Day when You interrupted our lives, opening up the eyes of our understanding and filling our spirits with the Revelation of Your Son Jesus, allowing us to receive Him as our personal Savior and Lord!

Heavenly Father, we gratefully acknowledge that because no man can come to the You except You draw them, we pray, Daddy, that as Your eyes continue to search the hearts of humanity, that You draw and save the lost, quickening The Spirit of Godly-repentance in every heart and mind that  will beckon them to come today confessing ‘a sincere YES’ to Your Grace Gift, thereby receiving You now as their personal Savior and Lord! We’re believing that You are directing their footsteps, placing and settling them into a local church home  where they are nurtured and encouraged to live holy, acceptable and committed to faithful obedience to Your Word! In Jesus Name Amen 3x!

Lord Jesus, we’re eternally grateful for the indwelling Presence of Holy Spirit assuring us that YOU ARE THE SOVEREIGN LORD, therefore always in absolute control of all things. In light of the continuous influx of profound arrogance and illegal injustices being perpetrated again Your people from ‘the Satanic influenced powers that be’, the atrocious senseless murders taking place all around us, in the midst of sadden hearts and wearied spirits we shall never fail to express our gratitude because You have promised to yet keep us hidden under The BLOOD just as You provided Light and Provision for Your people in Goshen! We praise You, Heavenly Father, that even in these days of imminent terror, tragedy, chaos and destruction, we know that the safest place in this whole world is in YOUR perfect Will! Therefore, we trust that no weapon that is formed against us shall prosper and every tongue that rises up again your children shall be condemned!

Wc speak Your Consoling Peace that surpasses all understanding cover our mindsDiscipline our thoughts that we may walk circumspectly as disciples of Christ. We put our flesh under subjection to Holy Spirit, and we resist the hand of the enemy of our lives. We will not misuse or abuse our time so we have time to seek You, ask and hear direction from You! Settle our anxious spirits and grace us to bring everything to You fully persuaded that You are well able and willing to save us! We rebuke every addictive spirit come to intice us off course.

As You have commanded, we pray and thank You for all the leaders over this nation and world. Send direction to them, as they make decisions that affect our lives and our households and our children in the classrooms! Touch their minds and hearts, visit them in the night, speak to them in dreams and visions and 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 wait for You to move on our behalf, help us not to become lethargic and disenfranchised, refusing to do those things we’re called to do in our communities to honor the privileges that so many others before us struggled, fought even died so that we would have the right to vote and that our children would be able to live a better life than they did! Help us to be accountable in our communities, Churches, on our jobs, in our homes. Help those who carry Your word to walk upright standing for right in this contrary world!

Help us to stand in the Liberty, with our faith firmly rooted in The Sacrificial Atoning Blood of Jesus that has set us free, to live a quality of life that is exceedingly, abundantly, above and beyond this natural realm! We declare and decree that as children of The Most High God, we are seated in Heavenly Places in Christ Jesus! Therefore the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but Mighty Through GOD, pulling down strongholds, casting down imaginations and everything that exalts itself against The KNOWLEDGE OF GOD! WE PLEAD THE BLOOD OF JESUS OVER OUR MINDS, BODIES, SOULS AND SPIRIT!

Precious Father, we ask You to forgive us of every sin we have committed or omitted willfully and unwillfully in thought, word or deed! In Jesus Name! Where justice should prevail, Lord we plead for Mercy! Thankya for changing our story and those of our loved ones, who’ve not yet come to the knowledge of Your Saving Grace! We put them under arrest by the Power of Holy Spirit and we call their lives to come into proper alignment with Your Divine Word and Will!

We speak wondrous reversal of any damage caused by strokes, kidney failure, heart disease, arthritis, glaucoma and every other eye disease! Father GOD, release a Divine Revelation of our healing that You purchased on Calvary and give us instructions on how we can loose total healing in every area of our being!

We pray for the caretakers assisting love ones and lift up those who are lingering on to life in hospice facilities aking for sweet transition! We pray strength for the weary. Lift up every bowed down head, strengthen hearts with Your unshakable Peace! Give us to Hope again! Help us to remember Your Faithfulness and Mercy in times past, recognizing that You O God are the same yesterday, today and forever more! Encourage us with Confidence that You hear our cry, even as You heard the voice of Your children in Egypt!

We declare and decree that You are releasing a Double Portion of Your Anointing, Spirit of Love, Power, Sound-mindness and Purpose into the lives of Your people now, in Jesus Name!

Lord Jesus, we await Your Salvation, in confidence and quietness, rejoicing in hope and trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling, suddenly departing in shameful defeat, recognizing 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!

Our Father and God of Heaven and Earth, we come before You humbled by Your Loving-Kindness, Grace and Mercy! We’re eternally grateful for one more opportunity to behold The Glory of Your Presence! We know that it’s Your Sovereign Will and Strength that has allowed us to live, move and breath, being clothed in our right mind today! We thank You for revealing to us such wondrous treasures that were hidden from our understanding, when we walked surrounded by darkness, as dead men in the earth without a God on our side!

Abba Father, it’s only because of Your Wisdom, we know to cherish this day and not take it for granted as if we have a right to be alive! We come humbled by Your Mercy before You, with open hears, uplifted hands and lips filled with joy and delight to praiz and Your Holy Name! We thank You for giving us The Name that’s above every other name! You have decreed that at The Name of Jesus ,our Lord and Savior, every knee must bow and every tongue shall confess that He Alone is Lord of Lords and King o Kings! We praiz You, Jesus for You have redeemed our lives from destruction and engrafted us into The Royal Kingdom of God! Because of Your Sacrificial Atoning Blood, we are now called Children f The Most High 4ever! Oh, how awesome are Your deeds! For You have preserved our lives and kept our feet from slipping!

Daddy, we thank You for Your continued benevolence and favor towards us! We are eternally grateful that because You are The God of our Salvation, Deliverance, Breakthrough and Provision, no good thing will You withhold from us as we continuously walk upright before You! And because You formed us in our Mother’s wombs, You know our frame, nevertheless Your faithfulness and compassion continuously allows You to look beyond our human frailties,fickleness, faults and iniquities to see and minister to fulfill everything that we will ever need pertaining to life and godliness! We rejoice in Your Promise that You will watch over, protect and guide us tenderly  as the apple of Your Eye!

We know You to be A Merciful and Forgiving Father! We know that You are the God of many chances because You keep right on blessing us over and over again! Abba Father, we know that it would be foolish for us to continue in sin, frustrating Your Grace, therefore we bow reverently before You now asking You to forgive me this day for everything I have done, said or thought that was not pleasing to Your Heart. Assured that as we confess our sin, You are Faithful and Just to forgive, pardon and restore us back into rightful fellowship with You, we ask now for Your forgiveness, in The Precious Name of Jesus!

 

Sweet Jesus, teach us to see sin through Your eyes and to acknowledge it as evil wickedness and rebellion against the Creator and Lover of our souls, The Giver and Sustainer of All Life! And when we sin, quicken our spirit to repent immediately, and to confess with our mouth our wrongdoing, that we might receive the Gracious forgiveness of our Heavenly Father! For this cause, we gladly present our spirit, soul and body as a living holy sacrifice to be used for Your Greatest Glory! 
Precious Lord, because no man can come to the Father except You draw them, we intercede on behalf of every unsaved soul, praying that You will quicken The Spirit of Godly-repentance in their heart and in their mind that they will will hear Your Voice, come confessing a “Sincere YES” to your Amazing Gift of Grace and receive You as their personal Lord and Savior TODAY! We’re believing that You will Divinely orchestrate their footsteps settleling them into a local church home where they will be embraced with joy-filled loving fellowship with their brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus!

Lord, we ask You to put a fresh “committed YES” in the heart and mind of every backslider who has walked away from following Your Teachings! Let today be the day that they come back to You and come back to YOUR church where they will sincerely submit their lives to the sound teachings of Your Word, learn to love and live their lives walking out Your plan and purpose, becoming a Light reflecting Your Glory,Will and Ways to a dark, lost and dying world and provoking some sinner man, sinner woman, boy and girl to cry out “What must I do to be saved!”

 

Father, we pray that You will touch our brother, touch our sister whose body has been afflicted by  all manner of sickness and disease, including but not limited to the spirit of cancer, kidney/liver disease, heart/lung , disease, arthritis, bone and muscle disease, autism and dementia and every mental disorder! We pray that You are already rebuking and casting out every symptom and trace of it out at the rootfor Your Name Sake!

 

We lift up all who are on dialysis, chemotherapy, awaiting transplants and other surgery, those in nursing and rehabilitation homes! Heavenly Father, YOU are Alpha and Omega, the same yesterday, today and forever! Therefore, even as You walked this earth healing all who were sick, feeble, lame we know that You’re Well Able and Willing to do the same right now! Your Eternal Living Word declares that Your stripes have redeemed and healed us and we’re yet standing on your promises that the prayer of faith shall save the sick and raise them up, In Jesus Name! Amen 3x!

Sweet Holy Spirit, we’re standing in agreement with every believer who is yet holding on to Your Hand by faith today, that You are releaseing Divine Power, Supernatural Strength, Health, Wholeness, Provision, Prosperity, Protection and Peace that passes all Understanding. As we’re trusting in You, we thank You for preserving each and everyone of us thru the tests that You have allowed us to go thru, keeping us constantly aware of YOUR PRESENCE and fully-confident that at the appointed time,You, WILL bring them out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and with the reward with a soul-stirring testimony of what Faith In God can do!

 

Father, we lift up our children, our grand-children and our great-grands, nieces, nephews, cousins, sisters, brothers, spouses, in-laws and friends, by faith, we abort and overrule every curse that’s been ordered against their lives and canceling every scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them! As we commit them into Your Providential 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! Therefore we speak The Peace of God over their spirits, souls, minds and bodies releasing a Spirit of Love, Holiness and Excellence to fulfill their God ordained destiny!

Holy Father, we’re lifiting up every Bishop, Pastor, Overseer, Apostle, Evangelist, Preacher. Teacher, Missionary, auxiliary leader, usher, musician, choir member and director and church member! Undergird them with Your Anointing and conviction to carry out their assignment, under the direction of Holy Spirit. Cover them as they go in and out amongst Your people with honor, wisdom and favor! All who would seek to discredit, hinder and even destroy their faith, faithfulness and the ministry You have ordained from their mother’s womb, shall be rebuked and restrained by The Power of Holy Spirit. In Jesus Name! IT IS SO!

Sweet Lord, as You have instructed, we pray for every leader of our nation, federal and local government, legislative, corporate, judicial, education, public service, healthcare and financial institutions! We’re asking that You touch the minds and hearts of those that You’ve ordained for leadership for such a time as this! Lord speak to them in dreams and visions, reminding them that POWER BELONGS TO YOU Who Sit Enthroned Above the Heavens! Convict them that Your eyes are going to and fro throughout the whole earth, keeping record of the deeds of every man’s heart and will reward accordingly!

El Shadai, we believe that You are warning them 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. 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!

Abba, we ask that You encourage and comfort the souls of Your Elect who are overwhelmed with fear, doubt and worry because of the things that are going on in our personal lives, in our churches and in this ungodly world systems! We pray that You send a double-portion-downpour of Your Divine Favor upon each who needs encouragement and empowe them to stand steadfast, immovable in the midst of these wicked and evil days! Let us know that we are never alone  and that Your Grace is Sufficient to overcome every weapon that is formed against us!! We decree that every demonic-induced spirit of addiction, anxiety, disappointment, offense, discouragement, loneliness, isolation, rejection, resentment, abandonment, failure and fear is defeated NOW because of Your Anointing and that the Spirit of Love, Power and Sound-mindness and Purpose is being released into the lives of Your people now, in Jesus Name!

 

Heavenly Father, because You have promised to perfect our cares and concerns, O GOD, we bring so many other situations before Your Majestic Throne. Those who are broken hearted, feeble in body and spirit, the one at a crossroad of life, the ones addicted to harmful substances, our armed forces, policemen, fire and rescue personnel, nurses, doctors, pastors and leaders, missionaries far and near; our leaders of the world. We’re trusting You to send peace where there is confusion, send love where there is hate, send unity where there is division. Bless the fatherless and motherless. Keep us ALL in your care. These favors we ask in Jesus Mighty Name!!

 

Father, we acknowledge that there are so many other things we should pray about, however believing that Holy Spirit is already interceding on our behalf, interpreting our sighs, moans and the groanings of our hearts, we wait in confidence and quietness, anticipating the exceeding Greatness of Your Power, rejoicing in hope and trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling and suddenly departing in shameful defeat, because You have heard the voice of our weeping, our supplications and received our prayer as a sweet savor coming up before Your Sovereign Throne of Grace and Mercy!

Abba Father, in closing, we stand in humbled boldness, agreeing with You Who hears and answers our prayers and forgives our transgressions! Holy Father, because You have chosen us to live eternally with You Who Reigns 4Ever, our souls are strengthened as we shout with joy! We bow in obedient reverence before The Hope of all the earth, believing that as Your face shines upon us that, You are making Your Ways, Will and Salvation known among all nations; for You Guide and Rule justly!

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

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