THURSDAYS’ PRAYERS!

SELAH DEVOTIONS!

GM FAM! GOTTA MOMENT? HALLELUJAHHH!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

Sweet Jesus, we lift up every spiritual leader, we speak LIFE, STRENGTH, ENCOURAGEMENT, CONFIDENCE, ASSURANCE, RESTORATION OF HOPE-FILLED- ENTHUSIASTIC-ANTICIPATION and TRUST into all those who are yet believing for immediate manifestation of that special miracle and the fulfillment of every vision that You’ve placed into their hearts! We REBUKE AND COMMAND spirits of low-self esteem, self-doubt, failure, competitiveness, discouragement, disappointment, confusion, sloughtfulness, tiredness, weariness, being unappreciated and misunderstood, all those threatened by spirits of suicide MUST LEAVE NOW!

 

LORD, reward YOUR servant/leaders who are yet standing on the wall proclaiming Your Word with POWER, under the conviction and anointing of Holy Spirit! Jesus, we’re trusting and believing You to Grace them to be the FAITHFUL AND TRUE WITNESSES, remnant examples of Your Righteousness in their homes, churches and community that will cause everyone who comes into contact with them to fall in love with You, trust wholly in and commit to live the rest of their lives serving and glorifying You!

 

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

 

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

 

Holy Savior, send peace to where there is confusion, send love where there is hate, send unity where there is division. Bless the fatherless and motherless. Keep us ALL in Your care.

 

Father, in closing, we decree that every demonic-induced spirit is defeated NOW because of Your Anointing and that the Spirit of Love, Power, PEACE and Purpose is being released into the lives of Your people now as we wait in confidence and quietness, rejoicing in hope and trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling and suddenly departing in shameful defeat, because You have heard the voice of our weeping, our supplications and have received our prayer as a sweet savor coming up before Your Sovereign Throne of Grace and Mercy!

 

Holy Father, because You have called and chosen us to live in Your House, we shout with exceeding Joy unto The Hope of all the earth, believing that as Your face shines upon us, You are making Your Will, Ways, Salvation and Deliverance known among all nations; for You Guide and Rule justly, agreeing with You Who FORGIVES TRANSTRESSORS, HEARS AND ANSWERS PRAYERS, we stand believing according to Your perfect timing, it is done! We ask these favors In The Exalted Name of Jesus and seal this prayer shouting HOLY HALLELUJAH AND AMEN 3X !

 

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

SELAH!

Pause, Ponder, Pray & Praiz!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

WHATZ N YOUR HEART?

WHAT'S IN UR HEART

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

And you shall remember the whole way that the Lord your God has led you these forty years in the wilderness, that he might humble you, testing you to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep his commandments or not. And he humbled you and let you hunger and fed you with manna, which you did not know, nor did your fathers know, that he might make you know that man does not live by bread alone, but man lives by every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord. Deuteronomy 8:2-3 ESV

 

We’ve all been there! At some point in this journey, we’ve found ourselves, barraged by seemingly insurmountable odds stacked against us, huh? There I was, sitting there unsuccessfuly attempting to make a 911 connection to The Throne Room. This one, was a time sensitive—not later—but I need YOU right nah—Lord situation! As my eyes skimmed over to my laptop and I realized that somehow it was in the middle of running an unscheduled scan! Immediately, I understood what the Holy Spirit was trying to do in me.

Remember when you thought you knew, but didn’t really know? Exactly! It’s during these moments of mental confusions and conflicting emotions that we need the aid of Holy Spirit. According to Isaiah 11:2, no one but The Spirit of Truth and Wisdom, can scan the the inner most chambers of the human heart, assess the situation, identify the dangerous infectious viral components, quarantine and eliminate them before they’re able to contaminate our heart’s drive! WOW, and He was doing this way before Bill Gates or Steve Job! Awemaazing, huh? 

With that being said, once again I had to admit that before I could make a right connection with Jesus, I had to clear the line! No, God was not saying that my issue was not valid, but that there was an even more life-threating situation that demanded immediate attention. There was something crucial going on in my heart that I was not willing to confront and deal with at the root! Sometimes we do that, you know? We like to justify our rebellion by playing the blame game. “Lord, if they hadn’t….then I never would’ve …” But God wasn’t buying none of that!

There’s no denying that there’s something embedded in the DNA of humanity that resists repentance.  C’mon, don’t shout me down nah! #ijs!!!

It’s difficult for us to acknowledge that we’re at fault. It’s a whole lot easier for us to judge others by their actions and ourselves by our good intentions, huh? But God is not intimidated by our self-deceiving, willful, prideful hearts NOR IS HE IMPRESSED BY OUR CHURCH TESTIMONIES!

God strategically sets up unscheduled heart scans to illuminate potentially critial viruses that left untreated could result in the hardening of the arteries causing damaging blockages. For instance, that spirit of jealosy, envy, anger, resentment, bitterness and yessss the unforgiveness haboring in the crevices of your heart against someone, who probably doesn’t even know it! You know how fake the saints can be sometimes. Problem is, chances are before the end of the day, you’ll probably gonna need somebody to forgive you for something! The scripture is clear on this, if you don’t forgive others, neither will Your Heavenly Father forgive you your faults! (Ref. Matthew 6:15) OMG! Kinda sheds a different light on it, huh?

Beloved, I don’t know about you, but I NEED THE MERCY AND GRACE OF GOD, ALL DAY…EVERY DAY! Don’t look at me with that tone of voice, Y’all know I ain’t by myself!

I know it’s not always easy, especially when you’re the one who’s been hurt. But considering the repercussions, sounds to me like, by GOD’S Grace, whatever the offense, we just need to release it, drop it, leave it and let God handle it! God always knows everything about everything –and we don’t!

SO, WHAT’S REALLY IN YOUR HEART? #GOD REALLY KNOWS!

SELAH!

We Thank You for leading and guiding them to their designated local church, planting them in Your Vineyard, where they shall be welcomed, loved, taught and transformed by Your Word of Life to take their position in The Kingdom of Heaven.

Because You Alone are The Hope of This Life and The Life to come, let today be their day to come back to You and back to YOUR church where they will restored as they submit their lives to the sound teachings of Your Word, and learn to love and live their lives walking to please You First!

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

SLAVE 2 HOPE!

African black hands in chains on white

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations, just as it had been said to him, “So shall your offspring be.”…being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised. Romans 4:18, 21

 

Do you remember, as a child, ever being warned by your parents (supposing to avoid the pain of disappointment),“Don’t get your hopes up”? For many of us, the devil was laying a foundation for years of pessimism, doubt, unbelief, hopelessness, low self-esteem, depression and despair! WOW! Who Knu?

Ever wonder why God told us not to walk by our feelings? Well, if you’re anything like me, you’ve probably accumulated enough regrets, as a result of poor choices you’ve made listening to your fickle-feelings, to realize how irrational flesh can be, huh?

Let’s set the record straight! Sometimes, it’s difficult to ascribe a tag to feelings; feelings jus are! Directed by proper motivation, feelings are good! That’s why we need the Spirit of Discernment! Remember, when out of no where, you felt that bleep that kept on bleeping up  out of your spirit and something told you…‘don’t go that way, stop right now and turn around or call so-and-so, pray for him now?’

Unfortunately, more often than not, we’re tempted to dismiss things if it doesn’t fit within the realm of our logic. Kinda like Moses’ first response to the burning bush! Yet, something pricked his curiosity to closely investigate and ultimately leading him into a personal encounter with The Supernatural Almighty God!

Abram over-ruling emotions and human reasoning, choosing to consider not what he could see (circumstantial evidence) but rather believed and reached for what was not seen! That was faith, yall!

Now, the world looks at this and calls it foolishness, weakness and denial! However, the scriptures reveal that Abram was clearly aware that except by Divine Intervention, it was impossible for a 100 year old man and a 90 year old woman to conceive and birth a child! Because God does nothing in the earth until He gets a man to come into agreement with Him, have you ever wondered what if Abram and Sarai had continued to jus laugh off the promised as an impossible pipe-dream, if perhaps…???

No doubt over the next 25 loonnng years, Abram faced many demonic challenges tempting him to give up his hope of  living to see the manifestation of such a miraculous feat. Yet, against all hope, Abraham hope on! Oooh Glorraa2GAWD! God testified that because Abram believed that His God had the power to shift nature and call those things that be not as though they were, Abraham received the Promise and thus became the Father of our faith!

Howeverrr, how often have we insisted upon ignoring that still small voice of conscience to satisfy feelings of our own lusting, self-centered emotions driven by fear of ‘What if and What’s in it for me’? Even if it means forfeiting our Hope and God’s Peace?  OMG! The next time, perhaps we need to re-think before we act on them, huh? #ijs

Beloved, HONESTLY! This walk of faith that GOD EXPECTS is NOT REALLY all that unreasonable when your HOPE is firmly rooted and ground in Jesus Alone, consistently trusting, wholly relying upon HIS Supernatural Grace 2 strengthened us 2 walk out our faith, looking unto JESUS, obeying HIS teachings and patiently awaiting HIM 2 fulfill every Promise that HE has ever spoken over our lives! #Didjaheardat?

THURSDAYS’ PRAYERS!

PRAYN AND FASTING PIC

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

 

GOOD MORNING FAMILY! GOTTA MOMENT? Awesome! Once again, we are excited that You’ve joined us today, in our weekly day of Corporate Prayer and Fasting! SHALL WE PRAY?

 

Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus And to take Him at His Word! Just to rest upon His promise. And to know thus saith the Lord! Jesus, Jesus how I trust Him
How I proved Him o’er and o’er. Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus! Oh, for grace to trust Him more; Oh, for GRACE 2 Trust U more…We love U Lord, and we lift our voice; to worship U O my soul, rejoice! Take joy my KING, in what U hear, and let it be a sweet, sweet, sound in UR ears…let it be a sweet, sweet sound in URRR Ears…


Heavenly Father, we come one more time, to thank You for allowing us to see this new day! We have so much to thank You for, and we refuse to take anything for granted; therefore, we praise You for our being able to breathe, see, to hear, walk, talk and even think to pray! We’re blessed because You are a forgiving and an understanding God. Not because I am in anyway deserving of such favor, nevertheless You have already done so much for me, yet 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 the day ahead unfolds, help us to maintain a righteous attitude coupled with loads of gratitude! Keep us in the cleft of The Rock, 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.

 

Help me Lord to not whine and whimper over things I have no control but help us to remember that because You are always in total control nothing happens to us that is random, but the steps and stops of the righteous are ordered and managed by Your Sovereignty! Open the eyes of our understanding that we may be able to see, discern and acknowledge the evilness of sin through the Redeeming Blood of Your Son Jesus! And when we do sin, quicken our spirits to repent immediately, confessing with our mouth our wrongdoing, and receive the Gracious forgiveness of our Covenant-Keeping Father and God of our Salvation!

 

And when the pressures, wickedness and chaos of this immoral world closes in on us, remind us to follow Jesus’ example — to slip away and find a quiet place to pray; confident that prayer is our best response when pushed beyond the limitations of self! We thank You that when we can’t pray, You are yet listening to our hearts and are able to interpret every moan, groan and sigh of our inner-man! Father, we thank You that despite of our 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 others. 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 will delete this without sharing it with others. We pray for those 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.

 

Looking back over our lives, we can’t help but cry out, Thankya for that Blessed Day when You opened our hearts and enabled us to believe and receive the revelation of the Saving Grace of Jesus Christ! Knowing that You are no respecter of persons, and that Your Grace is available to any who will ask, we intercede on behalf of everyone whose eyes have been blinded by the gods of this world, pierce through the darkness of their fallow hearts; awaken them with The Light of Your Glory and enable them to cry out, “What must I do to be saved?” Quicken the Spirit of Godly-repentance in their hearts and mouths witha sincere Yes” enabling them to receive Your Gift of Grace, confessing You as their personal Lord and Savior! We’re trusting You to direct their footsteps, place and settle them into a local church home today where they are welcomed, loved, nurtured and encouraged to live the remainder of their lives holy, acceptable, committed and faithfully obedience to Your Word!

 

Father, we know that faith in God not only changes people it changes us! And only You, O God have the Power to change circumstances! We’re praying for peace, unity, love and joy in our homes, communities, churches and nation. We believing that Your Divine Favor is being poured out upon everyone who has a desire and determination to please You and their faith is rising to a new level of faithfulness and obedience! We’re believing You to command a double-portion-supernatural-release of abundance in every area of their lives so that all their needs are met according to Your Richest in Glory! In Jesus Name, It IS SO!

 

Father, by faith, we now lift up our children, our grands and great grand-children, committing them into Your care! We realize that You love them and have pre-ordained their individual purpose and plan for being. We have the blessed assurance that their steps are being ordered by Your eyes, directing, guiding and instructing their footsteps into a face-to-face encounter with You where they will surrender their lives over to You and will be able to share their own testimony of what Faith in God can and will do!

Grace them to be the TRUE WITNESSES and examples of Your Righteousness in their homes, churches and community that will cause everyone who comes into contact with them to fall in love with You, trust wholly in and commit to live the rest of their lives serving and glorifying You!

 

Trusting that You Sovereignly Rule and Reign over the affairs of mankind, we lift up the leaders of our nation, federal/local government, corporate, judicial, educational, health care providers and every arena of our society! Because their hearts are in Your Hands, we’re asking You to touch their minds and infiltrate their hearts a Godly Fear; let their hearts be continuously opened to hear and obey Your Will! Speak to them in dreams and visions alerting let them that You Who Sit Enthroned Above the Heavens are keeping record of the deeds of every man’s heart and will reward accordingly! Lord Jesus, we’re standing on Your Word as decreed that The governments of this world shall rest upon Your shoulders and that You are The Eternal King of kings and Lord of lords!

 

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

 

Father, we believe that as we’re praying, You are touching our brother, our sister whose body has been afflicted by all manner of sickness and disease, especially the spirit of cancer, strokes, heart attacks, kidney failure, liver disease, mental and emotional issues! We intercede on behalf of all those undergoing surgical procedures, those in recovery rooms. We’re praying for those who’re on life-support systems, not knowing that they’re even in this world! We’re declaring and decreeing that as we’re praying You’re walking through every ward, touching, healing, delivering, miraculously rebuking fatigue, mistakes, mishaps, misdiagnosis and premature death for Your Name Sake!

 

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

 

Holy Spirit, help us to remain faithful and keep a Kingdom mindset, relying on You to go before us and make our way prosperous. We believe You are dispensing overwhelming Favor, Prosperity, Peace and when these blessings are manifested, help us to walk in a spirit of humility giving Your Name all the Glory, Honor and Praiz!


We bind every wicked scheme that the enemy desires to assail against us and declare that we are well able to take possession of every promises that You’ve made to us! We pray for total deliverance from every cord that would bind Your people and come against our God -ordained Destiny! We rebuke the enemies of our minds, thanking You that nothing can stop the blessings or us from performing the greater works You have assigned to the covenant saints! We thankya for the courage and patience to stand, steadfast, consistent, always abounding in the work of our LORD!


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

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

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

 

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

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

GOOD MORNING FAM! GOTTA MOMENT! AWEMAAZING!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

Finally, Abba Father, we stand in agreement with You who hears ours prayers and forgives our transgressions as we’re shouting with everlasting joy to The One to Whom all men will come! We believe that as Your face shines upon us, You are making Your Ways and Salvation known among all nations, for You Guide and Rule justly!

Father, believing that IT IS DONE, we thank You NOW! In The Exalted Name of Jesus WE SAY Amen 3X and It Is So!

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

SELAH!

Pause, Ponder, Pray & Praiz!

DIVINE JUSTICE IS NOT PARTISAN!

divine justice is not partisan

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

This is what the Lord says: “For three sins of Judah, even for four, I will not relent. Because they have rejected the law of the Lord and have not kept his decrees, because they have been led astray by false gods, the gods their ancestors followed, 5 I will send fire on Judah that will consume the fortresses of Jerusalem.”

6 This is what the Lord says: “For three sins of Israel, even for four, I will not relent. They sell the innocent for silver, and the needy for a pair of sandals. They trample on the heads of the poor as on the dust of the ground and deny justice to the oppressed. Father and son use the same girl and so profane my holy name. They lie down by every altar on clothes taken in pledge, And drink the wine of their god. Amos 2:4-8

 

While we rarely care to be reminded, much less own it, History has revealed numerous innate flaws in humanity! Yet, The Creator of Heaven and Earth is not in the least bit hesitant to point our these fickled- fallacious tendencies in an effort to divert us from being repetitively susceptible to and victimized by them as were our forefathers!

As our text unfolds, we see Amos, a little known Sheepherder, is commissioned by God, to leave his home in Judah and travel north to  warn the people of Samaria and the Kingdom of Israel!  Having provoked God’s anger and exhausted His patience and forebearance, Judah and Israel would now suffer the thrust of  God’s impending judgment because of their perpetual rebellion and blatant disregard for His Righteous Commands!

A closer investigation of the text bear witness that after decades of devastating struggles the nations of Judah and Israel were now basking in a time of great prosperity and military success! Having successfully eliminated their traditional enemies, they enjoyed tremendous wealth and infamy. In other words, they were living their ‘best life ever’! Unfortunately, that’s when we’re most vulnerable to forgetting the Gifter and magnifying the giftings!

Much like today, the leaders of these nations, assuming that they were somehow entitled to these exuberant graces, were immune to the sufferings of the least amongst them and took advantage of every opportunity to keep the poor enslaved by poverty, inequality, worthlessness and hopelessness!

Little did they realize that God despises human pride, particularly when it’s rooted in self-righteousness and barnacled in indifference to the welfare of others whom God has Divinely-Positioned them to steward over! WOW! Many a person, blinded by unjustified confidence in personal status, has seen their worldly wisdom reduced to mere foolishness, huh?

This is specifically true for religious leaders who believe that God is impressed with packed-out ‘FAKE’ Worship services that tend to promote ritualistic celebrations but do nothing to produce Repentance nor Godliness in individuals, our communities, culture or society! DON’T SHOUT ME DOWN NAH! #ijs!!!

Beloved, TRUST2KNO, GOD IS IMPARTIAL WHEN IT COMES TO APPROPRIATING JUSTICE! Your last name, birth right, inheritance, bank account balance, educational degrees, zip code, civic, corporate, or political affiliations do not exempt us from the righteous punishment for insidious immoral crimes we commit against our fellow humanity! While man’s justice may remain blinded by race, ethnicity, class, false assumptions of pre-disposed genetic advantages/disadvantages, GOD’S HOLINESS AND RIGHTEOUS JUDGEMENT IS NOT! NO MAN IS ABOVE HIS LAWS!

HE WHO SITS HIGH ABOVE THE CIRCLE OF THE EARTH IS NO RESPECT OF PERSON WHEN IT COMES TO DISPURSING DIVINE LEGAL OPINIONS THAT CAN NOT BE OVER-RULED! We must all remember that The Kingdom of God is not a democracy, but it is, was and shall forever remain a SOVEREIGN ETERNAL THEOCRACY!

ZION, BEWARE! The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good. (Proverbs 15:3)
Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin. (James 4:7)
For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the. 1 Peter 4:17

#DIDJAHEARDAT? GOD IS NOT DISCRIMINATORY OR PARTISAN! HOWBOUTU?
