Saturday Prayer Blanket Brief November 22, 2014
LORD, we declare that the rulers in authority in each nation and the Church will rule wisely in all areas concerning Christians and Jews. We praise You, LORD, for no mosque on or near the site of 9/11. We declare all subversive associations and movements that train young men, women and children to carry out suicide and murderous attacks in all parts of the world are defeated, in the Name of Jesus. We declare no more human-trafficing! No more buying and selling children and women in any of the nations for any reason! No more slavery!! No more decapitations! No more abuse! in Jesus’ Name!
Lord, we blow the trumpet and sound the alarm, calling the prayer warriors to the wall, for each city throughout the United States and around the world! We watchers stand and intercede where we have been strategically placed for our households and for all in our tent, in Jesus’ Name!
We gird ourselves, and all that You, LORD have given us to stand for, with the full armor of God. Our loins are girded with Truth! We have the Breastplate of the Righteousness of Jesus Christ! Our feet are shod with the Gospel of Peace! We have our heads covered with the Helmet of Salvation, and we pull it down and buckle it tight over our ears, so that we can’t hear the lies of the devil! Psalm 91 is our shield of Faith…and we speak that Faith into the heavenlies each day, wielding that Sword of the Spirit which in our mouths slays the enemy!!
LORD GOD, we are calling for the mourning women as spoken of by the prophet Jeremiah. We are sending out a call for the skillful wailing women that they hurry and come take up a wailing with us, that our eyes may run with tears and our eyelids gush with water!
We pray that a voice of wailing is heard from Zion!!!
For we have been plundered! We are greatly ashamed because we have forsaken the land. Because we have been cast out of our dwellings! Yet, hear the word of the LORD, O women, and let your ear receive the word of His mouth. Teach your daughters wailing, and everyone her neighbor a lamentation.
For death has come through our windows, has entered our palaces…to kill off the children…no longer to be outside! And the young men…no longer on the streets.
We are crying out and standing against the spirit of death: destruction, disease, division, divorce, drugs, discord, discouragement, disaster…all the tentacles of the octopus, death!! In Jesus’ Name, we raise our swords against you, and we draw the blood line around our families, including, ourselves, our friends…ALL LORD, that You have given us charge over, in Jesus, Name.
Father, we believe that Your thoughts, that You think toward us, are thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give us a future and a hope. We shall call upon You, Lord! We shall go and pray to You, and You will listen to us. We will seek You and find You, when we search for You with all our heart! You will bring us back from our captivity. You will gather us from all the nations…the places where You have driven us, and You will bring us to the place from which You caused us to be carried away captive.
Your Kingdom Come, Your Will Be Done on earth, as it is in Heaven, concerning safety for those around us. We pray for all parts of all the nations to be covered with prayer, “that all may lead a quiet 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.”
We ask life for all that have not sinned the sin unto death …all who have not blasphemed the Holy Spirit…believing that You shall give them life!
We declare all gang and drug activity – exposed and stopped in the Name of Jesus! Jesus, the freedom fighter of all time conquered for us death and hell. He is ruler of the earth and says no to our enemies.
Father, we pray for nations threatening nuclear attack like Korea, Iran, Iraq, and any other, LORD! We say NO to all and any nuclear threat! We pray for the persecuted church in Egypt, Syria, Pakistan, India, South Africa, and all over the world, LORD! We pray safety for all of our brothers and sisters in Christ! We pray Your Kingdom Come! Your Will, LORD, Be Done in all the nations. We speak peace to all the storms!
Thank You, LORD, for Psalm 91, that we can and must pray it for and over all the family of God world-wide.
LORD, unite the Church, across denominational lines, world-wide, bringing about a united Body of Christ. We lift the persecuted church all over the earth. We ask for prayer agreement in the Churches. We pray for revival in the Church in every nation of the world.
Pour out your Spirit, LORD, as the prophet Joel prophesied, on all flesh! Our sons and daughters shall prophesy! Our old men shall dream dreams and our young men shall see visions! You shall pour out Your Spirit on Your menservants and Your maidservants!
You will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth; blood and fire and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the coming of the great and awesome day of the LORD. It shall come to pass, that whoever calls on Your Name, LORD, shall be saved. Deliverance will come to Mount Zion and Jerusalem, as You, LORD, have said, among the remnant, whom the LORD calls. Woo Hoo!!!
Like, Hezekiah, Father, we stand in the place of seeking God!!
Lord, we lift up all soldiers of the Cross to You – all missionaries, all Christian organizations, all prayer warriors including Women Who Pray! We pray a hedge of protection around our bodies, minds, and spirits, in Jesus’ Name. We declare a wall of fire around us, and we thank You for Your angels surrounding us.
Illumine us, LORD! Let our light so shine before the enemy that the enemy sees our good works and glorifies our Father in heaven. Heavenly Father, You are LORD of Heaven and earth, King of kings, Most High God. You are the commander of the armies of Heaven, and You are by the side of all the military in our tent. Your Word says that we have mighty angels accompanying us, fighting those who fight against us. Your shield of victory and safety in the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ defends us everywhere we go. We thank You for invisibility and immunity to spiritual attack under the shelter of Your almighty wings.
Lord Jesus, You have all authority in Heaven and on earth, and on the basis of our position as joint-heirs with Christ, we declare the cross between us and all evil spirits that would try to invade, infiltrate, harass, or ensnare us. Preserve us unbound and unharmed by the evil one.
The Lord lives, and blessed be our rock. And exalted be the God of our salvation, for You execute vengeance for us, and subdue people under us. You deliver us from our enemies; surely You lift us above those who rise up against us; You rescue us from the violent man. Therefore, we will give thanks to You among the nations, O LORD, and will sing praises to Your Name. For You give great deliverance to us, and show lovingkindness to Your anointed, and our descendants forever. For You do not give us a spirit of fear, but You give us a spirit of power and of love and of a sound mind, calm, well-balanced and disciplined and self-controlled.
We pray that we be strong and courageous, Father, that we not tremble or be dismayed, for You are with us wherever we go. For greater is He that is in us than he who is in the world. Thank, You, Father that the angel of the LORD encamps around us because we fear You, and He rescues us. You are our confidence and will keep our feet from being caught.
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 7 (NKJV)
1 O Lord my God, in You I put my trust; Save me from all those who persecute me; And deliver me, 2 Lest they tear me like a lion, Rending me in pieces, while there is none to deliver.
3 O Lord my God, if I have done this: If there is iniquity in my hands, 4 If I have repaid evil to him who was at peace with me, Or have plundered my enemy without cause, 5 Let the enemy pursue me and overtake me; Yes, let him trample my life to the earth, And lay my honor in the dust. Selah
6 Arise, O Lord, in Your anger; Lift Yourself up because of the rage of my enemies; Rise up for me to the judgment You have commanded! 7 So the congregation of the peoples shall surround You; For their sakes, therefore, return on high. 8 The Lord shall judge the peoples; Judge me, O Lord, according to my righteousness, And according to my integrity within me.
9 Oh, let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end, But establish the just; For the righteous God tests the hearts and minds. 10 My defense is of God, Who saves the upright in heart.
11 God is a just judge, And God is angry with the wicked every day. 12 If he does not turn back, He will sharpen His sword; He bends His bow and makes it ready. 13 He also prepares for Himself instruments of death; He makes His arrows into fiery shafts.
14 Behold, the wicked brings forth iniquity; Yes, he conceives trouble and brings forth falsehood. 15 He made a pit and dug it out, And has fallen into the ditch which he made. 16 His trouble shall return upon his own head, And his violent dealing shall come down on his own crown.
17 I will praise the Lord according to His righteousness, And will sing praise to the name of the Lord Most High.
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.
Sayings of the Wise
17 Incline your ear and hear the words of the wise, And apply your heart to my knowledge; 18 For it is a pleasant thing if you keep them within you; Let them all be fixed upon your lips, 19 So that your trust may be in the Lord; I have instructed you today, even you. 20 Have I not written to you excellent things Of counsels and knowledge, 21 That I may make you know the certainty of the words of truth, That you may answer words of truth To those who send to you?
22 Do not rob the poor because he is poor, Nor oppress the afflicted at the gate; 23 For the Lord will plead their cause, And plunder the soul of those who plunder them.
24 Make no friendship with an angry man, And with a furious man do not go, 25 Lest you learn his ways And set a snare for your soul.
26 Do not be one of those who shakes hands in a pledge, One of those who is surety for debts; 27 If you have nothing with which to pay, Why should he take away your bed from under you?
28 Do not remove the ancient landmark Which your fathers have set.
29 Do you see a man who excels in his work? He will stand before kings; He will not stand before unknown men.

(Colossians 1: 9-11 KJV)
Father, we pray that we will not be anxious, saying, “What shall we eat?” or “What shall we drink?” or “With what shall we clothe ourselves?” For all these things the Gentiles eagerly seek. For You know, Heavenly Father, that we need all these things. We pray that we will seek first Your kingdom and Your righteousness, and all these things shall be added to us. We pray we will not be anxious for tomorrow, for tomorrow will care for itself. (Matthew 6: 31-34)

Redeem us, Father, out of all our troubles. (Psalm 25: 12-15, 10, 22 NAS/AMP)
Thank You, Father, that our children are a gift and a heritage from You, and the fruit of the womb is our reward from You. The children of our youth are like arrows in the hand of a warrior.

(Colossians 3:20; Ephesians 6: 1-3)
We ask, Father, that You give to our children the tongue of disciples, that they may know how to sustain the weary one with a word, and awaken their ear to listen as a disciple, and not be disobedient nor rebellious.

We pray that the fathers do not provoke their children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. We pray that the fathers not exasperate them, in order that they not lose heart. (Ephesians 6: 4; Colossians 3: 21)
Father, we pray that our children hearken and listen to You, that You may teach them the fear of the Lord. May our children keep their tongues from evil, and their lips from speaking deceit. May they depart from evil, and do good. May these children seek peace, and pursue it, in order that they may have life and length of days, and that they may see good. (Psalm 34: 11-14 NAS/KJV)
And, Father, we pray that our offspring shall be known among the nations, and our descendants among the peoples, that all who see us in our prosperity will recognize and acknowledge we are the people whom You have blessed. (Isaiah 61: 9 AMP)
Father, so that all the husbands in our tent may be above reproach, we pray that they provide for their own, especially for those in their own household, that they do not deny the faith, and be worse than an unbeliever. (1 Timothy 5: 7,8)
Father, we pray that like as Christ was faithful as a Son over His house, so also will each husband be faithful over his house. (Hebrews 3: 6)
We pray, Father, that each husband may know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor, and not in lustful passion, like the Gentiles, who do not know God. (1 Thessalonians 4: 4,5)
We pray that each husband will live with his wife in an understanding way, as with a weaker vessel, since she is a woman, and grant her honor as a fellow-heir of the grace of life, so that his prayers not be hindered. (1 Peter 3: 7)
Thank You, Father, that You have made a suitable helper for each husband. (Genesis 2: 18)
We pray the heart of each wife’s husband trusts in her, and that each husband will have no lack of gain. We pray that each wife will do her husband good, and not evil, all the days of her life, and that each husband will be known in the gates when he sits among the elders of the land. (Proverbs 31: 11, 12, 23)
We pray that strength and dignity are each wife’s clothing, and that each wife smiles at the future. We pray that each wife opens her mouth in wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. We pray that each wife looks well to the ways of her household, and does not eat the bread of idleness. (Proverbs 31: 25-27)
We pray our way of life be free from the love of money, being content with what we have, for You said You would never desert us, nor will You ever forsake us, because godliness with contentment is great gain. (Hebrews 13:5; 1 Timothy 6: 6 KJV)
We pray we always give a soft, gentle answer to turn away wrath, because grievous, harsh words stir up anger. (Proverbs 15: 1 NAS/KJV)
We pray that our love be without hypocrisy. We pray we will abhor what is evil and cling to what is good. We pray we will be devoted to one another in brotherly love; giving preference to one another in honor; not lagging behind in diligence; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope; persevering in tribulation; devoted to prayer, contributing to the needs of the saints; practicing hospitality. (Romans 12: 9-13)
And so, Father, as those who have been chosen of God holy and beloved, we pray that we put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience; bearing with one another, and forgiving each other, whoever has a complaint against anyone, just as You forgave us, so also will we forgive. And beyond all these, that we put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity. And we pray we let the peace of Christ rule in our hearts, to which we indeed were called in one body, and be thankful. (Colossians 3: 12-15)
As for You, Father, this is Your covenant or league with us: Your Spirit Who is upon us and Who writes the law of God inwardly in our hearts, and Your words which You have put in our mouths, shall not depart out of our mouths or out of the mouths of our children, or out of the mouths of our children’s children from henceforth, and forever. (Isaiah 59: 21)
Used with Permission, Daily Prayers, by Elizabeth Alves, Canopy Press
Today we pray Ch 22 of Stormie Omartian’s 2 books, The Power of the Praying Wife and The Power of the Praying Parent.
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 the 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)
Lord, we lift up Israel and pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

**America Prayers and Proclamation

22. Jesus, lover of our souls, burn Your passions in the heart of the youth of America. Seal their affections. Let Your flame of love break unclean addictions of the human heart. (Song of Songs 8:6)
Thank You, LORD, for Psalm 91, that we can and must pray it for and over all the family of God world-wide.
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 119:49-56 (NKJV)
49 Remember the word to Your servant, Upon which You have caused me to hope. 50 This is my comfort in my affliction, For Your word has given me life. 51 The proud have me in great derision, Yet I do not turn aside from Your law. 52 I remembered Your judgments of old, O Lord, And have comforted myself. 53 Indignation has taken hold of me Because of the wicked, who forsake Your law. 54 Your statutes have been my songs In the house of my pilgrimage. 55 I remember Your name in the night, O Lord, And I keep Your law. 56 This has become mine, Because I kept Your precepts.
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 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
