Saturday Prayer Blanket Brief February 28, 2015
Prayer for the America and the Church! (Amended 2/6/2015)
Thank You Father for the Church…Your Body…Your Bride! Thank You for calling us forth to spread the Gospel …the Good News…to the ends of the earth! Thank You, LORD, for establishing America as one nation under God…a nation founded on your principles, LORD, just like Israel. America was established by the Church!
We ask You LORD to forgive us of pride that has arisen as we have allowed our hearts to be corrupted by the world. We are no longer enemies of the world…but because of our friendship with…our toleration of the many gods and lustful sin…we have been penetrated. Our shield of protection has been removed as September 11, 2001 showed us. Since then, LORD, our economy has dropped so…and we are no longer the greatest nation! We took prayer out of our schools…and nearly off our money…and we have murdered our babies! We have sinned LORD against You just like Israel did! We have shut You out!
The Church in the US is divided into many factions as we did not heed your warning that a House divided can’t stand! America was different… from the beginning we had no King except King Jesus! We were founded by the Church regardless of what historians in this nation have tried to deceive us into believing! We Your Church triumphant were mighty here in the U.S. for many years! We were protected in wars…and we were not easily penetrated.
Father there is nothing for us Your Church…Your nation under God…to do but fall on our faces and declare that we have sinned! This day, LORD, we humble ourselves and we pray and we seek Your face! We turn from our wicked way! This is the only way that You will hear us, forgive us, and heal our land!
We confess our sins LORD! We’ve been self-seeking! We’ve been self-reliant! We’ve been full of pride and arrogant! We have re-written the history of this nation! We have not taught our children of the God who founded us just like Israel not telling their heritage about all that You did to deliver them! We align ourselves, LORD, with Israel and we see that we have been as wicked as Israel! We have gone a whoring after other gods…committed adultery with the world! You have warned us in Your WORD!
Father, we have not committed Your WORD to our heart that we not sin against You, but we removed Your WORD from our schools and from many public places! We have allowed many gods from other cultures to infiltrate our books, our movies and our tv, and our churches…our hearts!
We have before us now a nation passing laws that allow us to drive under the influence of drugs. We have redefined the family…the foundation of this nation to include same-sex marriage!
LORD we fall on our faces before You and we ask You to create in us a clean heart! We Your intercessors for America…for the Church…LORD we identify with Israel and with her sinful ways in order that we die to sin…and rise up to live in righteousness! You are our Shepherd! We hear Your voice LORD!!!
Forgive us LORD of not going into all the world…of not making disciples of those in the 10/40 window! Forgive us for stopping the Gospel short of reaching the uttermost parts of the world.
We repent! We turn from our wicked ways!! We sound the alarm throughout the earth! The Kingdom of God is at hand!!! We sound the trumpet!!! Come out from among them!!!
Thank You LORD for washing us with the water of Your WORD! Thank You for transforming us into Your Church triumphant! We the end-times’ Church will take Your Gospel to the ends of the earth!
We are the redeemed of the LORD and we say so! We are light and we are salt! We are more than conquerors!
We have the keys to the Kingdom! We bind and it is bound! We loose and it is loosed! We speak to mountains and they fall! We tread on serpents and scorpions! We fear our God and Him alone! There is NO GOD but Jehovah! NO GOD but Yahweh!
We are the forgiven and we say so!!! We forgive 70 times 7 as our LORD!! That means we forgive always and forever!!!!!
We are the blessed! All that is not in the blessing we no longer allow to occupy us physically, mentally, or spiritually!
We break all curses over us in Jesus’ Name!!! We turn from our wickedness of ungodly alliances and all that binds us…all ungodliness of any kind! We break free in JESUS’ NAME!!!
We thank YOU Father for the release here today! We thank You LORD for the healing here today! We thank You for the strongholds being demolished throughout the western and eastern world!
The earth is Yours LORD GOD ALMIGHTY! You are the creator and the earth is Yours and You and only You are WORTHY!
We are called by Your NAME which is above all names! Your WORD is above Your NAME!!! We wield Your WORD the sword of the Spirit, slaying our one enemy…the devil! You LORD put an end to His power over us the moment You were crucified!
Hell shuddered! Why? Because the King of kings and LORD of lords was in the grave!
Hell could not hold Him and it can’t hold us either!
We are the Body of Christ and WE STAND!!!

LORD we call for the mourning women spoken of by the prophet Jeremiah. We are sending out a call for the skillful wailing women to hurry and take up a wailing with us…that our eyes may run with tears and our eyelids gush with water!
We declare a voice of wailing be heard in Zion!!!
We hear and heed Your Word, LORD! We receive the Word of Your Mouth! For death has come through our windows and entered our palaces…to kill off the children…no longer to be outside! And the young men…no longer on the streets.
In Jesus’ Name, we raise our swords against the octopus death… destruction, disease, division, divorce, drugs, discord, discouragement, and disaster…all the tentacles of the octopus 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!

Your Kingdom Come, Your Will Be Done in all nations as it is in Heaven! We cover the earth with prayer as we pray the Prayer Blanket every day!
We speak life to 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 rulers in each nation and the Church 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 defeated in the Name of Jesus!
NO human-trafficking! NO buying and selling children and women! NO more abuse!
We blow the trumpet in Zion and sound the alarm!
We call prayer warriors to the wall, for each city throughout the United States and around the world!
We watchers stand and intercede where we are strategically placed for our households and all in our tent! Our loins are girded with Truth! We have the Breastplate of the Righteousness of Jesus Christ! Our feet are shod with the preparation of Gospel of Peace! Our heads are 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!!

We pray Psalm 91 over all the family of God!
We declare our sons and daughters do indeed prophesy! Our old men dream dreams and our young men see visions! We receive Your Spirit LORD that You have poured out on all flesh…on Your menservants and Your maidservants…as prophesied by Your prophet Joel!
Thank You LORD for the 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 shall be saved! Deliverance has come to Mount Zion and Jerusalem among us, the remnant, whom You LORD call! Woo Hoo!!!
Like, Hezekiah, Father, we stand in the place of seeking God!!
Lord, we lift up all of us, Your 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 are strong and courageous! We do not tremble! We are not dismayed, for You are with us wherever we go! 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 Your Name! Today we hallow Your Name,
Amnos or Arnion – Lamb (Amnos is the Lamb sacrificed for the sin 0f the world. Arnion is the exalted Christ as the Lamb worthy of all honour and glory)
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 105 (NKJV)
10 Oh, give thanks to the Lord! Call upon His name; Make known His deeds among the peoples! 2 Sing to Him, sing psalms to Him; Talk of all His wondrous works! 3 Glory in His holy name; Let the hearts of those rejoice who seek the Lord! 4 Seek the Lord and His strength; Seek His face evermore! 5 Remember His marvelous works which He has done, His wonders, and the judgments of His mouth, 6 O seed of Abraham His servant, You children of Jacob, His chosen ones!
7 He is the Lord our God; His judgments are in all the earth. 8 He remembers His covenant forever, The word which He commanded, for a thousand generations, 9 The covenant which He made with Abraham, And His oath to Isaac, 10 And confirmed it to Jacob for a statute, To Israel as an everlasting covenant, 11 Saying, “To you I will give the land of Canaan As the allotment of your inheritance,” 12 When they were few in number, Indeed very few, and strangers in it.
13 When they went from one nation to another, From one kingdom to another people, 14 He permitted no one to do them wrong; Yes, He rebuked kings for their sakes, 15 Saying, “Do not touch My anointed ones, And do My prophets no harm.”
16 Moreover He called for a famine in the land; He destroyed all the provision of bread. 17 He sent a man before them— Joseph—who was sold as a slave. 18 They hurt his feet with fetters, He was laid in irons. 19 Until the time that his word came to pass, The word of the Lord tested him. 20 The king sent and released him, The ruler of the people let him go free. 21 He made him lord of his house, And ruler of all his possessions, 22 To bind his princes at his pleasure, And teach his elders wisdom.
23 Israel also came into Egypt, And Jacob dwelt in the land of Ham. 24 He increased His people greatly, And made them stronger than their enemies. 25 He turned their heart to hate His people, To deal craftily with His servants.
26 He sent Moses His servant, And Aaron whom He had chosen. 27 They performed His signs among them, And wonders in the land of Ham. 28 He sent darkness, and made it dark; And they did not rebel against His word. 29 He turned their waters into blood, And killed their fish. 30 Their land abounded with frogs, Even in the chambers of their kings. 31 He spoke, and there came swarms of flies, And lice in all their territory. 32 He gave them hail for rain, And flaming fire in their land. 33 He struck their vines also, and their fig trees, And splintered the trees of their territory. 34 He spoke, and locusts came, Young locusts without number, 35 And ate up all the vegetation in their land, And devoured the fruit of their ground. 36 He also destroyed all the firstborn in their land, The first of all their strength.
37 He also brought them out with silver and gold, And there was none feeble among His tribes. 38 Egypt was glad when they departed, For the fear of them had fallen upon them. 39 He spread a cloud for a covering, And fire to give light in the night. 40 The people asked, and He brought quail, And satisfied them with the bread of heaven. 41 He opened the rock, and water gushed out; It ran in the dry places like a river.
42 For He remembered His holy promise, And Abraham His servant. 43 He brought out His people with joy, His chosen ones with gladness. 44 He gave them the lands of the Gentiles, And they inherited the labor of the nations, 45 That they might observe His statutes And keep His laws.
Proverbs 28 (NKJV) (We complete the month with the rest of Proverbs today)
1 The wicked flee when no one pursues, But the righteous are bold as a lion.
2 Because of the transgression of a land, many are its princes; But by a man of understanding and knowledge Right will be prolonged.
3 A poor man who oppresses the poor Is like a driving rain which leaves no food.
4 Those who forsake the law praise the wicked, But such as keep the law contend with them.
5 Evil men do not understand justice, But those who seek the Lord understand all.
6 Better is the poor who walks in his integrity Than one perverse in his ways, though he be rich.
7 Whoever keeps the law is a discerning son, But a companion of gluttons shames his father.
8 One who increases his possessions by usury and extortion Gathers it for him who will pity the poor.
9 One who turns away his ear from hearing the law, Even his prayer is an abomination.
10 Whoever causes the upright to go astray in an evil way, He himself will fall into his own pit; But the blameless will inherit good.
11 The rich man is wise in his own eyes, But the poor who has understanding searches him out.
12 When the righteous rejoice, there is great glory; But when the wicked arise, men hide themselves.
13 He who covers his sins will not prosper, But whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy.
14 Happy is the man who is always reverent, But he who hardens his heart will fall into calamity.
15 Like a roaring lion and a charging bear Is a wicked ruler over poor people.
16 A ruler who lacks understanding is a great oppressor, But he who hates covetousness will prolong his days.
17 A man burdened with bloodshed will flee into a pit; Let no one help him.
18 Whoever walks blamelessly will be saved, But he who is perverse in his ways will suddenly fall.
19 He who tills his land will have plenty of bread, But he who follows frivolity will have poverty enough!
20 A faithful man will abound with blessings, But he who hastens to be rich will not go unpunished.
21 To show partiality is not good, Because for a piece of bread a man will transgress.
22 A man with an evil eye hastens after riches, And does not consider that poverty will come upon him.
23 He who rebukes a man will find more favor afterward Than he who flatters with the tongue.
24 Whoever robs his father or his mother, And says, “It is no transgression,” The same is companion to a destroyer.
25 He who is of a proud heart stirs up strife, But he who trusts in the Lord will be prospered.
26 He who trusts in his own heart is a fool, But whoever walks wisely will be delivered.
27 He who gives to the poor will not lack, But he who hides his eyes will have many curses.
28 When the wicked arise, men hide themselves; But when they perish, the righteous increase.
Proverbs 29 (NKJV)
1He who is often rebuked, and hardens his neck, Will suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.
2 When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; But when a wicked man rules, the people groan.
3 Whoever loves wisdom makes his father rejoice, But a companion of harlots wastes his wealth.
4 The king establishes the land by justice, But he who receives bribes overthrows it.
5 A man who flatters his neighbor Spreads a net for his feet.
6 By transgression an evil man is snared, But the righteous sings and rejoices.
7 The righteous considers the cause of the poor, But the wicked does not understand such knowledge.
8 Scoffers set a city aflame, But wise men turn away wrath.
9 If a wise man contends with a foolish man, Whether the fool rages or laughs, there is no peace.
10 The bloodthirsty hate the blameless, But the upright seek his well-being.
11 A fool vents all his feelings, But a wise man holds them back.
12 If a ruler pays attention to lies, All his servants become wicked.
13 The poor man and the oppressor have this in common: The Lord gives light to the eyes of both.
14 The king who judges the poor with truth, His throne will be established forever.
15 The rod and rebuke give wisdom, But a child left to himself brings shame to his mother.
16 When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increases; But the righteous will see their fall.
17 Correct your son, and he will give you rest; Yes, he will give delight to your soul.
18 Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint; But happy is he who keeps the law.
19 A servant will not be corrected by mere words; For though he understands, he will not respond.
20 Do you see a man hasty in his words? There is more hope for a fool than for him.
21 He who pampers his servant from childhood Will have him as a son in the end.
22 An angry man stirs up strife, And a furious man abounds in transgression.
23 A man’s pride will bring him low, But the humble in spirit will retain honor.
24 Whoever is a partner with a thief hates his own life; He swears to tell the truth, but reveals nothing.
25 The fear of man brings a snare, But whoever trusts in the Lord shall be safe.
26 Many seek the ruler’s favor, But justice for man comes from the Lord.
27 An unjust man is an abomination to the righteous, And he who is upright in the way is an abomination to the wicked.
Proverbs 30 (NKJV)
1. The words of Agur the son of Jakeh, his utterance. This man declared to Ithiel—to Ithiel and Ucal:
2 Surely I am more stupid than any man, And do not have the understanding of a man. 3 I neither learned wisdom Nor have knowledge of the Holy One.
4 Who has ascended into heaven, or descended? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has bound the waters in a garment? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is His name, and what is His Son’s name, If you know?
5 Every word of God is pure; He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him. 6 Do not add to His words, Lest He rebuke you, and you be found a liar.
7 Two things I request of You (Deprive me not before I die): 8 Remove falsehood and lies far from me; Give me neither poverty nor riches— Feed me with the food allotted to me; 9 Lest I be full and deny You, And say, “Who is the Lord?” Or lest I be poor and steal, And profane the name of my God.
10 Do not malign a servant to his master, Lest he curse you, and you be found guilty.
11 There is a generation that curses its father, And does not bless its mother. 12 There is a generation that is pure in its own eyes, Yet is not washed from its filthiness. 13 There is a generation—oh, how lofty are their eyes! And their eyelids are lifted up.14 There is a generation whose teeth are like swords, And whose fangs are like knives, To devour the poor from off the earth, And the needy from among men.
15 The leech has two daughters— Give and Give! There are three things that are never satisfied, Four never say, “Enough!”: 16 The grave, The barren womb, The earth that is not satisfied with water— And the fire never says, “Enough!”
17 The eye that mocks his father, And scorns obedience to his mother, The ravens of the valley will pick it out, And the young eagles will eat it.
18 There are three things which are too wonderful for me, Yes, four which I do not understand: 19 The way of an eagle in the air, The way of a serpent on a rock, The way of a ship in the midst of the sea, And the way of a man with a virgin.
20 This is the way of an adulterous woman: She eats and wipes her mouth, And says, “I have done no wickedness.”
21 For three things the earth is perturbed, Yes, for four it cannot bear up: 22 For a servant when he reigns, A fool when he is filled with food, 23 A hateful woman when she is married, And a maidservant who succeeds her mistress.
24 There are four things which are little on the earth, But they are exceedingly wise: 25 The ants are a people not strong, Yet they prepare their food in the summer;
26 The rock badgers are a feeble folk, Yet they make their homes in the crags; 27 The locusts have no king, Yet they all advance in ranks; 28 The spider skillfully grasps with its hands, And it is in kings’ palaces.
29 There are three things which are majestic in pace, Yes, four which are stately in walk: 30 A lion, which is mighty among beasts And does not turn away from any; 31 A greyhound, A male goat also, And a king whose troops are with him.
32 If you have been foolish in exalting yourself, Or if you have devised evil, put your hand on your mouth. 33 For as the churning of milk produces butter, And wringing the nose produces blood, So the forcing of wrath produces strife.
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.
FAMILY — GENERAL
Father, In Jesus’ name, we pray for all in our tent. May we reign in life today through our Lord Jesus Christ, having received the abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness. For Your eyes are toward the righteous, and Your ears are open to our cry. (Romans 5:17; Psalm 34: 15)

(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)

Because we fear You, Father, You will instruct us in the way we should choose, and our souls will abide in prosperity, and our descendants will inherit the land.

Our eyes are continually toward You, for You will pluck our feet out of the net. All Your paths are loving-kindness and truth to us, because we keep Your covenant and Your testimonies. 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. How blessed we are to have our quiver full of them; we shall not be ashamed when we speak with our enemies in the gate. (Psalm 127: 3-5 NAS/KJV)
You said, Father, that even the captives of the mighty man will be taken away, and the prey of the tyrant will be rescued. You will contend with the ones who contend with us, and You will save our children. (Isaiah 49: 25)

Father, thank You that all of our children will be taught by You, and the peace and well-being of our children will be great. (Isaiah 54: 13 NAS/KJV)
We declare that our children will be obedient to their parents in all things, for this is well-pleasing to You; that they honor their father and their mother, which is the first commandment with a promise, that it may be well with them; and that they may live long on the earth. (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. For You will help them; therefore, they will not be ashamed, confounded, or turned backward. (Isaiah 50: 4,5,7 NAS/AMP)
We pray that all may desire to know how to follow our example, because our children do not act in an undisciplined manner among others. (2 Thessalonians 3:7)
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, Increase International.

From Germaine Copeland’s Daily Prayer (Changed “I” to “We” as we pray corporate prayer for our tent)
Loving From Generation to Generation Father, today we bring our family, including our posterity, before the throne of grace as a living memorial. In the name of Jesus, we bind our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren to the truth of Your love, care, faithfulness, mercy and grace. Your grace is sufficient for all their needs, hurts and issues. Thank You for drawing them to Yourself and giving them the courage to trust You, and the wisdom and understanding necessary to bring their needs and vulnerabilities to You. We ask You to bind up their brokenness and supply their needs, in the Name of Jesus. As for us and our house we will serve the LORD in the Name of Jesus!
O God, how good You are to us. You set life and death before us and we have chosen life so we and our descendants may live and enjoy life. We thank You for giving us the opportunity to bless our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. We bless these generations with the testimony of Your goodness and grace and pray that this heritage will be passed down to future generations. You are our hope, our deliverer, and we will declare Your love and strength to the next generation and Your power to everyone who is to come. Holy Spirit, instead of causing division with judgments, let us bridge the generational gaps with unconditional love, with Your truth and Your promises. Where there are mistakes, impatience and offense, Lord, bring healing, encouragement and redemption. Through family, friendships and associations You have linked our destinies across decades. Lord, by faith we will finish our assignment and be a living memorial to show future generations that You are upright and faithful to Your promises. You will not fail one word of Your promise, in the name of Jesus. Scripture References: Psalm 71:18-19; Psalm 78:4; Isaiah 59:21

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. 8Love 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.
11When 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. 13And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
Psalm 119:129-136 (NKJV)
129 Your testimonies are wonderful; Therefore my soul keeps them. 130 The entrance of Your words gives light; It gives understanding to the simple. 131 I opened my mouth and panted, For I longed for Your commandments. 132 Look upon me and be merciful to me, As Your custom is toward those who love Your name. 133 Direct my steps by Your word, And let no iniquity have dominion over me. 134 Redeem me from the oppression of man, That I may keep Your precepts. 135 Make Your face shine upon Your servant, And teach me Your statutes. 136 Rivers of water run down from my eyes, Because men do not keep Your law.
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.
