Monday Prayer Blanket Brief December 22, 2014
Father, we pray that we will seek first Your kingdom and Your righteousness, in order that all these things may be added to us. We pray we will be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, we will let our requests be made known to You. And Your peace, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4: 6,7) (Matthew 6:33)
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.
Father, we pray that we may fear You according to Your Word: for there is no want to us who fear You. The young lions do lack and suffer hunger, but we who seek You will not be in want of any good thing. We pray that we honor You with our capital and sufficiency from righteous labors, and with the first fruits of all our income, in order that our storage places may be filled with plenty, and our vats be overflowing with new wine. (Proverbs 3: 9, 10 AMP)
Father, we pray we will bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in Your house. We pray that we will test You now in this matter to see if You will not open for us the windows of heaven, and pour out for us a blessing until there is no more need or room. Then You will rebuke the devourer for us, so that he may not destroy the fruits of the ground; nor will our vine in the field cast its fruit. And all will call us blessed, for we shall be a delightful land. (Malachi 3: 10-12 KJV/NAS)
Father, we pray that as we give, it will be given to us; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, it will pour into our laps. For whatever measure we deal out to others, it will be dealt to us in return. (Luke 6:38)
So, Father, we pray we sow bountifully in order to reap bountifully. May we give as we have purposed in our hearts, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for You love a cheerful giver. And You are able to make all grace abound to us, that always having all sufficiency in everything, we may have an abundance for every good deed.
As it is written, “He scattered abroad. He gave to the poor, His righteousness abides forever.” Thank You, Father, You Who supply seed to the sower and bread for food, will supply and multiply our seed for sowing and increase the harvest of our righteousness. You will enrich us in everything for all liberality. (2 Corinthians 9: 6-11a)
Thank You, Father, that Jesus came that we might have life, and that we might have it more abundantly. Thank You, Father, for supplying every need of ours according to Your riches in glory in Christ Jesus. For every good thing bestowed and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from You, Father of lights, with Whom there is no variation or shifting shadow. (James 1:17) (Philippians 4: 19) (John 10: 10b KJV)
Father God, we pray unceasingly for ourselves and all of our tent that we be filled with the knowledge of God’s will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that we walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, unto all patience and long-suffering with joyfulness.
The Son of God – Jesus Christ – has set us free! Therefore, we are free – indeed!!! We have overcome the enemy because of the blood of the Lamb, and because of the word of our testimony, and we do not love our lives even to death! We are over-comers every day! We overcome the enemy by the words of our mouth aligned with Your Word, LORD! In Jesus, we have overcome the enemy!!
We bless You, Lord, with our souls and all that is within us, we bless Your Holy Name! We put Your name on our tent as You showed Moses and Aaron to put Your name on the children of Israel. We say, “The Lord bless us and keep us; the Lord make His face shine upon us and be gracious to us; the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, and give us peace.”
Father, in the Name of Jesus, we commit ourselves to walk in Your Word. We recognize that Your Word is integrity itself – steadfast, sure, eternal – and we trust our lives to its provisions. You have sent Your word forth into our hearts. We let it dwell in us richly in all wisdom. It does not depart out of our mouths; we meditate in it day and night so that we may diligently act upon it. Your Word is an incorruptible seed, abiding in our spirit, and it grows mightily in us producing Your nature – Your life. For You, LORD, have magnified Your Word above all Your name. There is nothing higher than Your Name, except Your Word…and You are the Word!!
Your Word is our counsel, our shield, our buckler and our powerful weapon in battle. It is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path. It makes our way straight. We never stumble or fall, for our steps are ordered by Your Word. We hide Your Word in our hearts that we not sin against You, Lord. We recognize the strategies of satan and we stop him in his tracks by speaking Your Word out of our mouths in Faith – speaking things that be not as though they are!
We thank You, LORD, that the Spirit of Him Who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in us, and that because You raised Christ Jesus from the dead, You have given life to our mortal bodies through Your Spirit who indwells us. We pray that we give attention to Your words and incline our ears to Your sayings; that we do not let them depart from our sight, and that we keep them in the midst of our hearts, because they are life to us who find them and health and prosperity to our whole body and household – and all our tent!
We speak to the mountains and say, “Be thou removed and cast into the sea,” and we do not doubt but Believe that we have what we say when we say it! For we abide in You, Lord, and Your Word abides in us; therefore, we ask what we will, and it will be done for us! We align our Word with Your Word, asking according to Your will, and You hear us and give us our petitions.
We are confident, Father, that You are at work in us, both to will and to do Your good pleasure. We exalt Your Word! We Hold Your Word in high esteem and give it first place in our lives! We boldly and confidently say that our hearts are fixed and established on the solid foundation – the Living Word of God!!!
You, Lord, are not slow about Your promise, as some count slowness, but You are patient toward us, not willing for any to perish, but for all to come to repentance. We declare our patience toward our families and all we’ve known in the past and will know in the future – as well as all those in our present lives – that we are not willing that any perish but that all come to repentance. We are not willing to lose even one!!
We thank You that Jesus came to seek and to save that which was lost, and we, in covenant with You, Lord – also seek and save those who are lost! We praise You that the Prayer Blanket is a gift from You, to seek and save the lost – the ones who’ve never known You, LORD, and the ones that have left their 1st LOVE!!! Thank You for the honor of partnering with You in the vineyard!!! We are laborers in Your vineyard, declaring the Way of the LORD!!! Woo Hoo!!!
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 Name,
Semah – the Branch (the offspring of God, ordained to rule the earth with righteousness, the coming High Priest)
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 37 (NKJV)
1 Do not fret because of evildoers, Nor be envious of the workers of iniquity. 2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, And wither as the green herb.
3 Trust in the Lord, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. 4 Delight yourself also in the Lord, And He shall give you the desires of your heart.
5 Commit your way to the Lord, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass. 6 He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, And your justice as the noonday.
7 Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him; Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass. 8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath; Do not fret—it only causes harm.
9 For evildoers shall be cut off; But those who wait on the Lord, They shall inherit the earth. 10 For yet a little while and the wicked shall be no more; Indeed, you will look carefully for his place, But it shall be no more. 11 But the meek shall inherit the earth, And shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
12 The wicked plots against the just, And gnashes at him with his teeth. 13 The Lord laughs at him, For He sees that his day is coming. 14 The wicked have drawn the sword And have bent their bow, To cast down the poor and needy, To slay those who are of upright conduct. 15 Their sword shall enter their own heart, And their bows shall be broken.
16 A little that a righteous man has Is better than the riches of many wicked. 17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken, But the Lord upholds the righteous.
18 The Lord knows the days of the upright, And their inheritance shall be forever. 19 They shall not be ashamed in the evil time, And in the days of famine they shall be satisfied. 20 But the wicked shall perish; And the enemies of the Lord, Like the splendor of the meadows, shall vanish. Into smoke they shall vanish away.
21 The wicked borrows and does not repay, But the righteous shows mercy and gives. 22 For those blessed by Him shall inherit the earth, But those cursed by Him shall be cut off.
23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, And He delights in his way. 24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down; For the Lord upholds him with His hand.
25 I have been young, and now am old; Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, Nor his descendants begging bread. 26 He is ever merciful, and lends; And his descendants are blessed.
27 Depart from evil, and do good; And dwell forevermore. 28 For the Lord loves justice, And does not forsake His saints; They are preserved forever, But the descendants of the wicked shall be cut off. 29 The righteous shall inherit the land, And dwell in it forever.
30 The mouth of the righteous speaks wisdom, And his tongue talks of justice. 31 The law of his God is in his heart; None of his steps shall slide.
32 The wicked watches the righteous, And seeks to slay him. 33 The Lord will not leave him in his hand, Nor condemn him when he is judged.
34 Wait on the Lord, And keep His way, And He shall exalt you to inherit the land; When the wicked are cut off, you shall see it. 35 I have seen the wicked in great power, And spreading himself like a native green tree. 36 Yet he passed away,[a] and behold, he was no more; Indeed I sought him, but he could not be found.
37 Mark the blameless man, and observe the upright; For the future of that man is peace. 38 But the transgressors shall be destroyed together; The future of the wicked shall be cut off.
39 But the salvation of the righteous is from the Lord; He is their strength in the time of trouble. 40 And the Lord shall help them and deliver them; He shall deliver them from the wicked, And save them, Because they trust in Him.
Proverbs 22 (NKJV)
1 A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches, Loving favor rather than silver and gold.
2 The rich and the poor have this in common, The Lord is the maker of them all.
3 A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself, But the simple pass on and are punished.
4 By humility and the fear of the Lord Are riches and honor and life.
5 Thorns and snares are in the way of the perverse; He who guards his soul will be far from them.
6 Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.
7 The rich rules over the poor, And the borrower is servant to the lender.
8 He who sows iniquity will reap sorrow, And the rod of his anger will fail.
9 He who has a generous eye will be blessed, For he gives of his bread to the poor.
10 Cast out the scoffer, and contention will leave; Yes, strife and reproach will cease.
11 He who loves purity of heart And has grace on his lips, The king will be his friend.
12 The eyes of the Lord preserve knowledge, But He overthrows the words of the faithless.
13 The lazy man says, “There is a lion outside! I shall be slain in the streets!”
14 The mouth of an immoral woman is a deep pit; He who is abhorred by the Lord will fall there.
15 Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child; The rod of correction will drive it far from him.
16 He who oppresses the poor to increase his riches, And he who gives to the rich, will surely come to poverty.
MONDAY PRAYER GOVERNMENT
Father, In Jesus’ name, we come first of all to pray for leaders and all who are in authority in the countries where we live and minister, in order that we may lead a quiet and tranquil and peaceable life in all godliness and dignity and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in Your sight, for You desire all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. (1 Timothy 2: 1-4 NAS/KJV)We pray, Father, that these rulers in authority in the US and in every country where we live and minister be not a terror to good works, but to the evil; that these rulers be Your ministers and revengers to execute wrath upon them that do evil. (Romans 13: 3 KJV)
Give these leaders knowledge of Your way of judging, O God, and give them the Spirit of Your righteousness to control all their actions. Let them judge and govern Your people with righteousness, and Your poor and afflicted with judgment and justice. We pray the mountains bring peace to the people, deliver the children of the needy, and crush the oppressor, so that all may revere and fear You while the sun and moon endure, throughout all generations. (Psalm 72: 1-5 AMP)
We pray these leaders in authority will deliver the needy when he calls, the poor also and him who has no helper – the unborn, Lord; that the leaders will have pity on the poor and weak and needy, and that they will save the lives of the needy, and redeem their lives from oppression and fraud and violence, and that precious and costly shall be the blood of the needy in Your sight and in the sight of the leaders. (Psalm 72: 12-14 AMP)
We pray that prayer shall be made for the needy continually and that men shall be blessed by these leaders and that all nations shall call them and You blessed. (Psalm 72: 15, 17 AMP)
Father, we pray that You take away the wicked from before these leaders in authority in (America and each country or the world) so their governments will be established in righteousness. For promotion comes not from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south, but You are judge. You put down one and lift up another. We pray they may be surrounded with many wise and righteous counselors who love peace. (Proverbs 25:5; Psalm 75: 6, 7 AMP/NAS; Proverbs 12:20)
We pray, Father, that these leaders in authority will not desire strong drink nor wine, lest they drink and forget the law, and pervert the judgment of any of the afflicted. We pray they will not receive a bribe from the bosom to pervert the ways of justice, but that they will give stability to the land by justice, and not take a bribe to overthrow it. (Proverbs 31: 4,5 KJV/NAS; Proverbs 17: 23; Proverbs 29: 4)
Lord, counsel is Yours, and sound wisdom. You are understanding, and power is Yours. By You kings reign, and rulers decree justice. By You princes rule, and nobles, and all who judge rightly. We pray these rulers in authority will diligently seek You so that they may find You.
THOSE NOT SAVED
Father, having overlooked the times of ignorance, You are now declaring to men that all men everywhere should repent, because You have fixed a day in which You will judge the world in righteousness, through Jesus Christ Whom You have appointed, having furnished proof to all men by raising Him from the dead. (Acts 17: 30,31)
Father You are not slow about Your promise, as some count slowness, but You are patient toward us, not wishing for any to perish, but for all to come to repentance. For the Son of Man has come to seek, and to save that which was lost, and You said, “I will have mercy, and not sacrifice; For I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. (2 Peter 3:9; Luke 19:10; Matthew 9:13 KJV)
Lord, according to Your Word, we are asking for the heathen for our inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for our possession. (Psalm 2:8 KJV)
Father, we ask that You grant sinners, who will be ministered to by us repentance from dead works, and faith toward God. We pray that these sinners put aside all filthiness and all that remains of wickedness, And we pray that we all receive in humility the engrafted Word, which is able to save our souls. (Hebrews 6: 1 KJV; James 1: 21 NAS/KJV)
We ask that You pour out on sinners, who will be ministered to by us, Your Spirit of grace and supplication so that they can look on Jesus, Whom they have pierced. We ask that Your Spirit of truth come and convict them concerning sin, righteousness, and judgment; convict sinners concerning sin because they do not believe in Jesus; convict sinners concerning righteousness because Jesus went back to You; and convict sinners concerning judgment because the ruler of this world has been judged. (Zechariah 12: 10; John 16: 8-11, 13)
Thank You, Father, You are able to save forever those who draw near to You through Jesus, since He always lives to make intercession for us. We pray these sinners receive Your Spirit of adoption as sons, by which they may cry out, “ABBA! Father!” We pray the Holy Spirit, Himself, will bear witness with their spirit, and that they become the children of God. (Hebrews 7: 25; Romans 8: 15, 16)
THOSE NEEDING MINISTRY
We pray, Father, that You open a door for the Word, so that we may speak forth the mystery of Christ; and that we may make it clear in the way we ought to speak. (Colossians 4: 3, 4)
We pray that we conduct ourselves with wisdom toward outsiders, making the most of our opportunities and using our time wisely. We pray our speech be always with grace, seasoned, as it were, with salt, so that we may know how to respond to each person. (Colossians 4: 5, 6)
We pray, Father, that those receiving ministry continue in the faith firmly established and steadfast, grounded and settled, and that they not be moved away from the hope of the gospel which they have heard. Sanctify them in Your truth; Your Word is truth. (Colossians 1: 23 NAS/KJV; John 17: 17)
May the Word of the Lord spread rapidly and be glorified. May we, as well as those receiving ministry, be delivered from perverse and evil men, for not all have faith. Thank You, Father, that because You are faithful, You will strengthen us and protect us from the evil one. (2 Thessalonians 3: 1-3)
We pray that the hearts of those receiving ministry may be comforted and encouraged, being knit together in love, and attaining to all the wealth which comes from the full assurance of understanding, resulting in a true knowledge of your mystery, that is Christ Himself, in Whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
Holy Father, we thank You that no weapon formed against us or any of our tent or our co-workers, or our families, or our ministries shall prosper, and every tongue that has risen against us in judgment shall be shown to be in the wrong. For this peace, righteousness, security, and triumph over opposition is the heritage of these servants of the Lord, and this is the righteousness and vindication which we obtain from You — that which You impart to us as our justification. (Isaiah 54: 17 AMP)
Since then, Father, we have been raised up with Christ to a new life, thus sharing Jesus’ resurrection from the dead, we pray that we aim at and keep seeking the rich, eternal treasures that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. That we set our minds and keep them set on what is above, the higher things, not on the things that are on the earth. As far as this world is concerned, we have died and our new real life is hid with Christ in God. (Colossians 3: 1-3 AMP/NAS)
We pray that we be of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose. That we walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which we have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, showing forbearance to one another in love, being diligent to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace and forgiving one another, whoever has a complaint against any one, just as the Lord forgave us. May we give no cause for offense in anything, in order that the ministry be not discredited, but in everything commending ourselves as servants of God. (Philippians 2:2; Ephesians 4: 1-3; Colossians 3:13 NAS/KJV; 2 Corinthians 6: 3,4)
We pray that whatever we do, we do our work heartily as for the Lord rather than for men, knowing that from the Lord we will receive the reward of the inheritance; for it is the Lord Christ whom we serve. (Colossians 3: 32,24)
For You, Lord, will bless the righteous. As with a shield You will surround us with good will, pleasure and favor. (Psalms 5: 12 AMP)
Father, we pray that we, Your servants, will not forsake mercy and kindness and truth, but that we will shut out all hatred and selfishness and deliberate hypocrisy and falsehood. We pray that we bind mercy and kindness and truth about our necks, and write them on the tablet of our hearts, so that we may find favor, good understanding and high esteem in the sight and judgment of God and man. (Proverbs 3: 3, 4 AMP)
Father, we pray that in all matters of wisdom and understanding, when we and all our tent are consulted, that our counsel will be found to be ten times better than the counsel of those in the whole country round about. (Daniel 1:20 KJV/NAS/AMP)

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)

Thank You, LORD, for Psalm 91, that we can and must pray it for and over all the family of God world-wide.
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)
1. 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 119:113-120 (NKJV)
113 I hate the double-minded, But I love Your law. 114 You are my hiding place and my shield; I hope in Your word. 115 Depart from me, you evildoers, For I will keep the commandments of my God! 116 Uphold me according to Your word, that I may live; And do not let me be ashamed of my hope. 117 Hold me up, and I shall be safe, And I shall observe Your statutes continually. 118 You reject all those who stray from Your statutes, For their deceit is falsehood. 119 You put away all the wicked of the earth like dross; Therefore I love Your testimonies. 120 My flesh trembles for fear of You, And I am afraid of Your judgments.
Galatians 2:20 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.
We are the children of Abraham, through Jesus, 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!
