Sunday Prayer Blanket Brief August 31, 2014
Father, we thank You for creating us to worship You. We enter Your gates with thanksgiving in our hearts and Your courts with praise. This is the day You have made, and we will rejoice and be glad in it. Evening and morning and at noon we will pray and cry aloud, and You will hear our voice! Thank You that we confess our sins, and You are faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us of all unrighteousness.
We thank You for Your love that covers a multitude of sins. We come, Father, in the Name of Jesus, to plead His blood over our lives and over all that belongs to us, and over all of which You have made us stewards. Jesus is our Passover Lamb! We plead His blood over the portals of our minds, bodies, emotions, and our will.
We are protected by the blood of the Lamb, which gives us access to the Holy of Holies. We plead that precious blood over our children, our grandchildren, and their children, and all those whom You have given us in this life – our whole tent! You, Lord, have said that the life of the flesh is in the blood. Thank You for the blood of Jesus that has cleansed us from sin and sealed the New Covenant of which we are partakers.
We believe You, Lord Jesus, that You are the Way, the Truth, and the Life. We believe that no one comes to the Father but through You. Because we believe in You, the works that You do and even greater works will we do because You are seated at the right hand of the Father. Whatever we ask in Your Name, You will do that the Father be glorified in the Son. Anything we ask in Your Name, You will do for us.
We believe and receive Your prayer for us in the Garden of Gethsemane — the ones that believe in the Word passed on by your first disciples — that we will be one, as You, Lord, and Father God are one — and that we be with You and behold Your glory, the beloved of God before the foundations of the world. You have declared to us Your Name above all Names that every other name in heaven, earth and under the earth must bow.
Father of glory, You have given to us the spirit of wisdom and revelation in our knowing Jesus. The eyes of our understanding have been enlightened in order that we know the hope of our calling, the riches of the glory of His inheritance in us, and the exceeding greatness of His power toward us His saints – the true believers– according to the working of His mighty power that He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the Heavenly places.
Jesus, our Lord, sits far above all principality and power and might and dominion and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. God, our Father, has put all things under Jesus’ feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to us – the Church – which is His body, the fullness of Jesus who fills all in all.
We are Your people, Lord, called by Your Name. We the Church…in America and all other nations…humble ourselves and pray and seek Your face and turn from our wicked ways. Therefore, You hear us, forgive us, and heal our land!
We are the redeemed of the LORD, and we say so!! We fear not what man can do to us! The fear of God is the beginning of our knowledge. We seek You, LORD, and we find You when we search for you with all our heart. You will bring us back from our captivity. We, Your people, are strong in You, Lord, and in the power of Your might. We put on the whole armor of God that we may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in heavenly places. We, therefore, take up the whole armor of God, that we may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all to stand. We stand, therefore, having girded our loins with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod our feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace.
Above all, we take the shield of faith with which we quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one, and we take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God – and we pray always with all prayer and supplication for all the saints – and for us, Your people, Lord, that we open our mouths boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, for which we are ambassadors in chains – that in it we speak boldly as we ought to speak.
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but are mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments – imaginations – and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when our obedience is fulfilled.
Be gracious to us, O God, according to Your loving kindness…blot out our transgressions. Wash us thoroughly from our iniquities and cleanse us from our sin….Against You…We have sinned and done what is evil in Your sight, so that You are…blameless when You judge….You desire truth in the innermost being, and in the hidden part You will make us know wisdom.
Purify us with hyssop, and we shall be clean; wash us, and we shall be whiter than snow. Make us to hear joy and gladness….Hide Your face from our sins and blot out all our iniquities. Create in us a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within us. Do not cast us away from Your presence and do not take Your Holy Spirit from us. Restore to us the joy of Your salvation and sustain us with a willing spirit. Then we will teach transgressors Your ways, and sinners will be converted to You” (Psa 51:1-13).
13 For You formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.
15 My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.
And in Your book they all were written,
The days fashioned for me,
When as yet there were none of them.
17 How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God!
How great is the sum of them!
18 If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand;
When I awake, I am still with You.
We thank You, LORD, that we have an anointing from You, the Holy One, and we know all things. Wisdom is in the presence of You, LORD, Who has understanding and because we seek You, we can understand all things. We fear You, LORD, and that is the beginning of wisdom. We have good understanding because we do Your commandments.
Your thoughts, LORD, that You think toward us, are thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give us a future and a hope. We have Your mind, LORD, and we think Your thoughts. Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, we let our minds dwell on these things.
We pray that we walk and live habitually in the Holy Spirit, responsive to, controlled and guided and led by the Holy Spirit, so that we will not gratify or carry out the craving and desires of the flesh, and not be subject to or come under the law.
We trust You, Lord, with all our hearts, and we lean not to our own understanding. We acknowledge You in all our ways, and You direct our paths. We trust in You in order that loving kindness and mercy surround us. We will not trust in man or make flesh our strength – for the joy of the Lord is our strength! We will continue in the Faith firmly established and not be moved from the gospel – the good news!
We will abide vitally united to You so that Your words will remain in and continue to live in our hearts, so that we may ask whatever we will and it shall be done for us. For You have called us and chosen us that we might go and bring forth much fruit, and keep on bearing – birthing and travailing – lasting, remaining, abiding fruit – even into old age, Lord – that You may be honored and glorified – and that we may show and prove ourselves to be true followers and disciples of Yours!
As You taught your disciples how to pray, Lord, we – Your disciples in this day – pray – Our, Father, Who art in Heaven – Hallowed be Thy Name! Today we hallow Your Names,
Elohim, Jehovah,El-Shaddai, Adonai, Jehovah-Jireh, Jehovah-Rophe, Jehovah-Nissi, Jehovah-M’Kaddesh, Jehovah-Tsidkenu, Jehovah-Rohi, Jehovah-Shalom, Jehovah-Shammah, El-Elyon, Jehovah-Sabaoth, Jehovah-Nakah, Alpha and Omega, Quadowsh-iysh, Qanna, El Olam, Sur or Petra, El-Roi, Semah, Paraclete, Thura, Yasha, Asah, Pistos, Amnos or Arnion, Orthrinos-Aster, & Pele-Yaats.
Your Kingdom come – righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost! Your will be done on earth, Lord – that none perish and all come to repentance – as it is in Heaven. We ask that You give us this day our daily bread – including our manna – Your Word of life. Forgive us our trespasses, Lord, as we forgive those who trespass against us. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory – forever and ever!
Bless us like Jabez, LORD! Bless us indeed! Enlarge our territory!! Keep Your hand upon us, LORD, and keep us from the evil one, that we not cause pain or be in pain.
Psalm 73 (NKJV)
1 Truly God is good to Israel, To such as are pure in heart. 2 But as for me, my feet had almost stumbled; My steps had nearly slipped. 3 For I was envious of the boastful, When I saw the prosperity of the wicked.
4 For there are no pangs in their death, But their strength is firm. 5 They are not in trouble as other men, Nor are they plagued like other men. 6 Therefore pride serves as their necklace; Violence covers them like a garment. 7 Their eyes bulge[a] with abundance; They have more than heart could wish. 8 They scoff and speak wickedly concerning oppression; They speak loftily. 9 They set their mouth against the heavens, And their tongue walks through the earth.
10 Therefore his people return here, And waters of a full cup are drained by them. 11 And they say, “How does God know? And is there knowledge in the Most High?” 12 Behold, these are the ungodly, Who are always at ease; They increase in riches. 13 Surely I have cleansed my heart in vain, And washed my hands in innocence. 14 For all day long I have been plagued, And chastened every morning.
15 If I had said, “I will speak thus,” Behold, I would have been untrue to the generation of Your children. 16 When I thought how to understand this, It was too painful for me— 17 Until I went into the sanctuary of God; Then I understood their end.
18 Surely You set them in slippery places; You cast them down to destruction. 19 Oh, how they are brought to desolation, as in a moment! They are utterly consumed with terrors. 20 As a dream when one awakes, So, Lord, when You awake, You shall despise their image.
21 Thus my heart was grieved, And I was vexed in my mind. 22 I was so foolish and ignorant; I was like a beast before You. 23 Nevertheless I am continually with You; You hold me by my right hand. 24 You will guide me with Your counsel, And afterward receive me to glory.
25 Whom have I in heaven but You? And there is none upon earth that I desire besides You. 26 My flesh and my heart fail; But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
27 For indeed, those who are far from You shall perish; You have destroyed all those who desert You for harlotry. 28 But it is good for me to draw near to God; I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, That I may declare all Your works.
Proverbs 31 (NKJV)
1 The words of King Lemuel, the utterance which his mother taught him:
2 What, my son? And what, son of my womb? And what, son of my vows? 3 Do not give your strength to women, Nor your ways to that which destroys kings.
4 It is not for kings, O Lemuel, It is not for kings to drink wine, Nor for princes intoxicating drink; 5 Lest they drink and forget the law, And pervert the justice of all the afflicted. 6 Give strong drink to him who is perishing, And wine to those who are bitter of heart. 7 Let him drink and forget his poverty, And remember his misery no more.
8 Open your mouth for the speechless, In the cause of all who are appointed to die. 9 Open your mouth, judge righteously, And plead the cause of the poor and needy.
The Virtuous Wife
10 Who can find a virtuous wife? For her worth is far above rubies. 11 The heart of her husband safely trusts her; So he will have no lack of gain. 12 She does him good and not evil All the days of her life. 13 She seeks wool and flax, And willingly works with her hands. 14 She is like the merchant ships, She brings her food from afar. 15 She also rises while it is yet night, And provides food for her household, And a portion for her maidservants. 16 She considers a field and buys it; From her profits she plants a vineyard. 17 She girds herself with strength, And strengthens her arms. 18 She perceives that her merchandise is good, And her lamp does not go out by night. 19 She stretches out her hands to the distaff, And her hand holds the spindle. 20 She extends her hand to the poor, Yes, she reaches out her hands to the needy. 21 She is not afraid of snow for her household, For all her household is clothed with scarlet. 22 She makes tapestry for herself; Her clothing is fine linen and purple. 23 Her husband is known in the gates, When he sits among the elders of the land. 24 She makes linen garments and sells them, And supplies sashes for the merchants. 25 Strength and honor are her clothing; She shall rejoice in time to come. 26 She opens her mouth with wisdom, And on her tongue is the law of kindness. 27 She watches over the ways of her household, And does not eat the bread of idleness. 28 Her children rise up and call her blessed; Her husband also, and he praises her: 29 “Many daughters have done well, But you excel them all.” 30 Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, But a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised. 31 Give her of the fruit of her hands, And let her own works praise her in the gates.
Father, In Jesus’ name, we come boldly and with confidence to the throne of grace to obtain mercy and receive grace to help in time of need for all in our tent. (Hebrews 4:16 KJV/NAS)
Father, we ask that You give to us, Your spirit of wisdom and revelation in the deep, intimate, full knowledge of You, the eyes of our hearts and understanding being enlightened and flooded with light, that we might know what is the hope of our calling, and what are the riches of the glory of Your inheritance in us, and what is the exceeding greatness of Your power toward us, because we do believe according to the working of Your mighty power which You wrought in Christ, when You raised Him from the dead, and set Him at Your own right hand in the heavenly places. (Ephesians 1: 17-20 KJV/AMP/Marshall Interlinear/ Young’s Literal)
And, Father, even as Your servant Moses was faithful in all your house, and You spoke to him face to face, even so we pray that we be faithful and entrusted in all Your house, and that You speak face to face, and mouth to mouth with us — openly, clearly, and directly, and not in dark sayings or riddles. (Numbers 12: 7,8 AMP/NAS/NIV)
We pray that we keep and obey Your commandments and words, continually abiding in Your love, so that You come unto us, making Your abode and special dwelling place with us, and love us, and show and reveal and manifest Yourself to us, and make Yourself real and be clearly seen by us.

Father, we ask that the Spirit of the Lord rest upon us — the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might and strength, the spirit of knowledge and of the reverential and obedient fear of the Lord. (Isaiah 11:2 AMP/NAS)
We pray that we not be vague or thoughtless or foolish, but we be understanding, firmly grasping the will of the Lord; that we ever be continually filled with the Holy Spirit, and with the fruit that the Holy Spirit produces: love: joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. We pray that we walk and live habitually in the Holy Spirit, responsive to, controlled, guided and led by the Holy Spirit, so that we not gratify or carry out the cravings and desires of the flesh, and not be subject to, or come under the law. (Ephesians 5: 17, 28 AMP; Galatians 5: 22, 23; Galatians 5:16, 18 AMP/NAS)
Father, grant that the manifestation of the Spirit be given to us to profit in all that we do: the word of wisdom, the word of knowledge, faith, gifts of healing, working of miracles, prophecy, discerning of spirits, kinds of tongues, and interpretation of tongues. (1 Corinthians 12: 7-10 KJV)
We pray these attesting signs accompany us because we believe and keep on believing:
In Your name, we drive out demons; we speak in new languages; if we pick up serpents or drink anything deadly, it does not hurt us; we lay our hands on the sick, and they get well. (Mark 16: 17, 18 AMP)
And, Father, we pray that as we go out and preach everywhere, You keep working with us and keep confirming the message by the attesting signs and miracles that closely accompany the message. (Mark 16: 20 AMP)
Father, we pray that our speech, our preaching, and our writing not be set forth in persuasive, enticing, and plausible words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Holy Spirit and power, that is a proof by Your Spirit and power operating through us, and stirring in the minds of our listeners and hearers, the most holy emotions, and thus, persuading them, so that their faith might not rest in the wisdom of men or in human philosophy, but in the power of God. (1 Corinthians 2:4, 5 AMP/KJV)
Father, we pray that we retain the standard of sound words, in the faith and love which are in Christ Jesus, and that You open up to us a door for the Word, so we may speak forth the mystery of Christ, in order that we may make it clear in the way we ought to speak, and that our speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, so we may know how to respond to each person. (2 Timothy 1:13; Colossians 4: 3, 4, 6)
And, Father, like the Holy One Who called us is holy, we pray that we be holy also in all our behavior.
We ask that we be filled with the knowledge of Your will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so that we walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, to please You in all respects, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God, strengthened with all power, according to Your glorious might, for the attaining of all steadfastness and patience. (Colossians 1: 9-11)
We pray that You instruct us and teach us in the way we should go, and counsel us with Your eye upon us. (Psalm 32:8 )

Amen (Romans 16: 25-27)

Stormie Omartian’s books: The Power of the Praying Wife and The Power of the Praying Parent…Ch 30.
Father, we are your children…heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ who share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory. We ask you, Father, to make the nations our inheritance, the ends of the earth our possession for your glory and your purposes. In the name of Jesus, we pray for the healing of the nations. Praise God! It is our Lord Jesus who will bring true justice and peace to all the nations of the world. Amen
As the church we withstand the forces of darkness that have come to steal, kill and destroy the seeds of righteousness that were sown among all peoples in this earth. We proclaim that as surely as the earth brings forth its shoots, and as a garden causes what is sown in it to spring forth, so surely the Lord God will cause rightness and justice and praise to spring forth before all the nations through the self-fulfilling power of His word, in the name of Jesus our Lord who shall reign forever and ever! (1 Chron 16:30-32,
Isaiah 61:11) Father, we lift up the Ukraine crisis, in Jesus’ Name. We especially lift up the Jewish community in the center of this civil unrest. We stand against the anti-Semitic hatred that has always been apparent in this part of the world. Father, we say NO to the registering of Jews in the Ukraine, in Jesus’ Name! We stand with the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews and Rabbi Eckstein, as he continues to assess the needs of the Jewish community in the Ukraine. We pray Russia will not dominate the land in Jesus’ Name! We also continue to stand for the protection of the Jews of the Ukraine who are now being ordered to register. We speak to the mountains…socialism, communism, and naziism…and say be thou removed and cast into the sea and we don’t doubt but believe that we have what we say when we say it! We speak to this storm and say Peace Be Still!!! Amen and Amen!
We know Father that Your Word will not return void but will accomplish what it purposes to do! The Word slays the enemy! We speak to the mountain…the kingdom of islamization and we say be removed and cast into the sea and do not doubt but believe that we have what we say when we say it!
We declare that our eyes have been enlightened! We see that there is a body of antichrist just like we are Your body LORD! We see that islamization is against us LORD throughout the earth…declaring Sharia law…kidnapping and persecuting Your body LORD, the Church…threatening to behead any and all Believers who do not recant!
You say, LORD, that if we humble ourselves, pray and seek Your face, and turn from our wicked way, thenYou will hear from Heaven, forgive us our sin, and heal our land. We thank You LORD for giving us understanding to know all things. We know that in order to take the goods, we must first bind the strongman so we bind islamization of the whole world…in Jesus’ Name! We have the keys to the Kingdom LORD! What we bind on earth is bound in Heaven! And what we loose on earth is loosed in Heaven! We cast down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God! We loose captives from Isa the prophet and Mohammed another like Jesus! We loose all from allah the god of Islam! We bind every thought to the obedience of Christ!
Father, like the U.S.S.R., or the Roman Empire, or the Greek Empire…the Islamic Empire holds captive many nations…paralyzed as if stung and caught in a spider’s net…or held by the tentacles of this octopus. Islamization is a hegemon that rules geopolitically subordinate states by implied means of power and threat of force like beheading and not by direct military force. It’s like socialism …a philosophical control of the mind.
Like a cancer spreading over the earth, we speak to islamization, and we curse it to the root and command it to die, in Jesus’ Name! We stand with India and the nations that have not bowed to islam and defeat the wiles of the devil with our sword! You have told us to ask for the nations! We have asked and continue to ask for India…and the unreached people groups throughout the 10/40 window. LORD we know that You stand true to Your promise to give the nations to us just for the asking! The Word of God slays the enemy!! Islamization bows to the Name above all names…the Mighty Name of JESUS!
It is not by accident that we are standing LORD, in these last days fighting Your enemy! Like Mordecai and Esther, we’ve been so much a part of the world that we haven’t seen that we’ve been blind-sighted! Thank You LORD for Your Faithfulness to us Your end times’ Church! Thank You for waking us up and helping us and not allowing us to be subdued by the god of this world… succumbing without a fight! We are more than Conquerors! We overcome by the Blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony…not loving our lives even to death! You LORD have put all principalities and powers of this world under Your feet! Therefore, we as Your Body LORD we tread upon the serpents and scorpions of islamization daily until Your Kingdom Come on earth as in Heaven. You are King of kings and LORD of lords, in Jesus’ Name, Amen and Amen! SO BE IT!!
Thank You, LORD, for all those who have come to the LORD Jesus Christ – all that have been delivered from the shackles of satan – from Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, and any other false religions in the 10/40 window area of the world, and all over the world. We thank You, LORD, for delivering all from the rulers of this world in heavenly places. We declare that none that have come to Jesus will recant or deny Him, in Jesus’ Name.
Thank You, LORD, for TBN and all outreach by television, radio, internet, and in person in the Middle East, and all throughout the unreached people groups in this earth. Thank You for so many being saved. Thank You, LORD, for all Believers on mission in their Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and/or uttermost part of the world.
For Thailand Father, Your Kingdom Come! Your Will Be Done! We thank You, Father, for Your plan for the government of Thailand a plan for peace and not evil to give them a future and a hope. Thank You Jesus, Prince of Peace, for Your continuing protection of Your people and their loved ones, homes and property. Thank You for the witness of Your church, such as Sereana and her church in Bangkok….lifting You up, drawing those around them unto You…ministering peace in the midst of the turmoil of the 12th coup since the country’s absolute monarchy ended in 1932. We join Sereana and the praying saints in Thailand and all of SE Asia, China and Asia, as they stand against the old strongholds Buddhism, Hinduism, etc., and the newest stronghold of Islamism…that like a new predator…devours all in its path.
Thank You, LORD, for the people and the homes near the fire that began in Oak Canyon and spread over many acres of land…thank You that they were spared. Where we were claiming the territory for You, LORD, the destruction could have been so much worse! Praise You for all the fire fighters protected! in Jesus’ Name! We also lift up California and pray You meet the needs of Your people! May the Church arise and stand together in each state and speak to each of the storms…fires, tornadoes, and all storms, in Jesus’ Name!
LORD, we lift up Israel and pray for the peace of Jerusalem

Psalm 91 (NKJV)
1 We who dwell in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
2 We will say of the Lord, “He is our refuge and our fortress;
Our God, in Him we will trust.”
3 Surely He shall deliver us from the snare of the fowler
And from the perilous pestilence.
4 He shall cover us with His feathers,
And under His wings we shall take refuge;
His truth shall be our shield and buckler.
5 We shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
6 Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,
Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.
7 A thousand may fall at our side,
And ten thousand at our right hand;
But it shall not come near us.
8 Only with our eyes shall we look,
And see the reward of the wicked.
9 Because we have made the LORD, who is our refuge,
Even the Most High, our dwelling place,
10 No evil shall befall us,
Nor shall any plague come near our dwelling;
11 For He shall give His angels charge over us,
To keep us in all our ways.
12 In their hands they shall bear us up,
Lest we dash our foot against a stone.
13 We shall tread upon the lion and the cobra,
The young lion and the serpent we shall trample underfoot.
14 “Because we have set our love upon Him, therefore He will deliver us;
He will set us on high, because we have known His name.
15 We shall call upon Him, and He will answer us;
He will be with us in trouble;
He will deliver us and honor us.
16 With long life He will satisfy us,
And show us His salvation.”
1 Corinthians 13 (NKJV)
Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. 2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.
4 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; 5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; 6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
8 Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part. 10 But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away.
11 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. 12 For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.
13 And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
Psalm 119:89-96 (NKJV)
89 Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven. 90 Your faithfulness endures to all generations; You established the earth, and it abides. 91 They continue this day according to Your ordinances, For all are Your servants. 92 Unless Your law had been my delight, I would then have perished in my affliction. 93 I will never forget Your precepts, For by them You have given me life. 94 I am Yours, save me; For I have sought Your precepts. 95 The wicked wait for me to destroy me, But I will consider Your testimonies. 96 I have seen the consummation of all perfection, But Your commandment is exceedingly broad.
We are crucified with Christ; it is no longer us who live, but Christ lives in us; and the life which we now live in the flesh we live by faith in the Son of God, who loved us and gave Himself for us.
Declaration: We are the children of Abraham and we receive the 100-fold return on all that we sow in the Kingdom. Praise the LORD for all the wells of living water dug up.
Amen and Amen!!Tweet
