Praying For the Church

Thank You Father for the Church…Your Body…Your Bride! Thank You for being our hiding place and preserving us from trouble…for surrounding us with songs of deliverance. Thank you for instructing us and teaching us in the way we should go…for guiding us with your eye!

Thank You LORD for calling us to be ONE as You and Your Father are ONE! Thank You for us laying down all that besets us and going forth as Your Triumphant Bride in this earth!

Thank You that we are salt that flavors, heals, and cleanses! Thank You that our light so shines before men that they see our good works and they glorify our Father in Heaven! Thank You that we no longer shine a dim light…that we are burning brighter every day!

As nation is rising against nation and kingdom against kingdom…as the earth is rocking and reeling in birth pains of famines, pestilences, floods, earthquakes and storms, we the Church recognize that we are in the time of trouble! We are seated in the Heavenlies! We are under the shadow of the Almighty…in the Secret Place of the most High!

LORD we no longer stray from Your Path! We hear Your voice clearly saying “This is the Way…Walk in it! We are standing and ridding our nation, cities, churches, and homes of death!

We are called by Your Name! We are Your nation! We are humbling ourselves…praying…and seeking Your face! We are turning from our wicked way! Therefore we know You hear us, forgive us, and heal our land! We align our prayer with Your Word Your will and You give us our petitions!

We declare by Faith the return of this nation to justice and fairness…and to cleanness of heart! We declare unborn babies will no longer be slaughtered and their body parts will not be sold! We declare Planned Parenthood fall into ruin in the Name of Jesus! We declare all abortion clinics closed! No more abortion, in Jesus’ Name!

We declare prayer will ring from the schools and the homes. We declare all fornication and sexual perversion will vacate our churches! No worshiping of idols by any means in Jesus’ Name! We declare the reinstitution of Marriage as one man and one woman…and the definition of family revived…Father, mother, and children.

Praying for our households

Thank You, Father, that because we believe in the Lord Jesus, our households shall be saved.

As for us – our tent and each household – we will serve the Lord.We wives submit unto our own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ is the head of the Church, and He is the Saviour of the body. We are submissive, so that even if our husbands do not obey the Word, they may be won by our behavior – chaste and accompanied by the fear of God. Instead of relying on the outward adorning of our flesh, we will reach our husbands with the hidden person of our heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.

The older women will admonish the younger women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God not be blasphemed.

Each husband loves his wife as Christ loves the Church – that he love her as his own body – nourishing and cherishing her as Christ does the Church. Husbands dwell with their wives with understanding, giving honour to the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life, that their prayers not be hindered.

Let each man of you love his own wife as his very own self, and let the wife see that she respects and reverences her husband — that she notices him, regards him, prefers him, venerates and esteems him, and that she defers to him, praises him, loves him, honors him, and admires him exceedingly.

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 mighty warrior. How blessed we are to have our quiver full of them. We will train up our children in the nurture and the admonition of the Lord. They will not depart from the Way, the Truth, and the Life!

Our children will obey us in the Lord, for this is right! They will honor their father and their mother – all their lives – that they may live long on the earth. Fathers will not provoke or aggravate their children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. They will not exasperate their children in order that they not lose heart.

LORD, we reaffirm that we are persuaded that You are able to guard and keep what we’ve committed unto You! We rededicate our adult children to You! We stand unmoved and receive Your promise to pour out Your Spirit on our sons and daughters! We declare they will hear Your voice and sense Your presence and direction in their lives. Speak to their hearts as You pour out Your Spirit, LORD!

Thank You, LORD that because Your love and power is poured out on us, our prayers for our children are powerful! Thank You for loving our adult children as much as we do. We say, today, “For our adult children we have prayed and You, LORD, hear our prayers and grant our petition. We give You all praise and glory!! In the Mighty Name of Jesus!

We, Your children will hearken and listen to You that You may teach us the fear of the Lord. We will keep our tongues from evil and our lips from speaking deceit. We will depart from evil and do good. We will seek peace and pursue it, in order that we may have life and length of days and that we will see good.

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.

Father, today we bring our families, including our posterity, before the throne of grace as living memorials. In the name of Jesus, we bind ourselves, our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren to the truth of Your love, care, faithfulness, mercy and grace. Your grace is sufficient for all our needs, hurts and issues.

Thank You for drawing us to Yourself and giving us the courage to trust You, and the wisdom and understanding necessary to bring our needs and vulnerabilities to You. We ask You to bind up our brokenness and supply our 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.

Praying for our healing in our bodies…

Father we thank You for all the normal cells functioning correctly in our bodies each and every moment. We thank You for every cell operating correctly…getting the signals from the tissue surrounding them and telling them to multiply. When receiving the signal they will divide into 2 new cells and when they get old or damaged they will kill themselves in a cell-suicide process called apoptosis. They will package all their remnants into little membrane-bound sacks so that other cells come along and chow down on them.

We speak all our cells to be altruistic as described here functioning solely to benefit the organism as a whole! We thank You LORD for healthy immune systems to rise up and take the cancer cells that have their own agenda. Their sole purpose is to stay alive and keep dividing multiplying uncontrollably and form masses called tumors. In Jesus’ Name white blood cells and all antibodies arise in the bodies of our people and kill and destroy these disobedient cells…these terroristic cells to our bodies …in Jesus’ Name!

We pray that our immune systems be such watchdogs as to catch at the very beginning when the cell loses its ability to divide properly! We thank You LORD for healing our mutated genes that are assigned to control cell division but are dividing randomly and more often. We call into balance our whole cell system in our human bodies. We say stop to the reproduction of faulty cells in our bodies. No more dividing and multiplying of changed cells! No more multiplication of the enemy cancer by whatever name given by man…in Jesus’ Name!

We speak strong and mighty immune systems with white blood cells that recognize each cancer infected cell as they do virus and bacteria infected cells. No more thriving cancer cells avoiding the immune response! No more transformation of mutated cells from tumors! No more migrating to new pastures! No more moving into the blood supply or lymphatic system and hitching a ride to the closest organ or tissue and setting up a new colony!!! We command stop and go signals working in balance in each body in our tent in Jesus’ Name!

You are alpha and omega the beginning and end of all things…and we speak this prayer to the alpha of the cancer to right itself and obey signals to stop multiplying and even to self-destruct…and we speak to the end, the omega of 4-stage cancers in process and we command no more disobeying the immune response and no more transforming and moving through the body! We say stop! We say die! Good cells multiplying and bad cells self-destructing in Jesus’ Name…and bad cells receiving the death assignment from the drugs being taken in bodies being treated in Jesus’ Name! Amen and Amen!!!

Father we thank You that all the needed ingredients for cancer cells to metastasize not be in any location that the cancer cells are trying to colonize. We pray for multiple immune system cells to resist every group of cancer cells that are trying to metastasize. We thank You for the blockage of cancer cell metastasis throughout the body in Jesus’ Name. We speak death to every metastatic cancer cell that lies dormant in any of our bodies at distant sites from the cancer origin. No ambushes from dormant cells waking up in Jesus’ Name!

Thank You LORD for teaching us how to pray against cancer. We thank You for our shield of Faith and for the Sword of the Spirit…the Word of God! Thank You for the gifts of wisdom, knowledge and understanding. We’ve known that cancer was an attack and evil…that our enemy was the one in charge of such a hellacious thing! We thank You that as we research we have the mind of Christ and You say we understand all things!

After the cancer cells have invaded the body they then invade normal tissue near their point of origin. Then, they invade and move through the walls of nearby lymph vessels and blood vessels, moving rapidly through the lymphatic system and bloodstream to other parts of the body. Then they arrest and extravade. That means they stop moving in capillaries at a distant location from the origin and invade these walls of the capillaries and migrate into surrounding tissue.

Thank You Father for Your Divine Intervention into every part of this plan of the enemy in Jesus’ Name. We say stop to all cancer cells wherever you are and we say die in Jesus’ Name. All cancer cells in the original organ and all that have metastasized in Jesus’ Name! We thank You LORD that You say the life is in the blood…and we plead the Blood of Jesus over and in our lives…including our bodies.

Last but not least we speak to those cells that when they come to a new place in our bodies to colonize…when they stop moving or arrest in our capillaries at a distant location from their place of entry or origin. We declare that our immune system response…with all our white blood cells and our antibodies…all our stop commands be obeyed in Jesus’ Name! Jesus is LORD over us and He is the authority over our bodies. Cancer cells you will not invade the capillary walls and extravade or migrate into the surrounding tissue. We declare no proliferation or multiplication of cancer cells at the distant location to form micrometastases (small tumors).

Finally, Father, we declare NO angiogenesis! The micrometastases will not stimulate new blood vessels to obtain a blood supply! We refuse…resisting our enemy the devil…for causing these tumors to parasitically create a new blood supply in order to obtain oxygen and nutrients necessary for the tumor to grow! We shout NO!!!

Seek Ye First the Kingdom of God

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)

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)

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, may we let our minds dwell on these things.

We allow you to create in us a clean heart, Holy Father, and to renew in us a steadfast spirit. We ask that the spirit of the Lord rest upon us – the spirit of wisdom and understanding, counsel and might and strength, the spirit of knowledge and of the reverential and obedient fear of the Lord. We pray that we ever be continually filled with the Holy Spirit and 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 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 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 longsuffering with joyfulness.

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 trust You, Lord, with all our hearts, and we lean not to our own understanding. We acknowledge You in all our ways, and You will 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!

Pure Vision

Pure Vision

Habakkuk 2:2  (NKJV)

Then the Lord answered me and said: Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it.

UNDERSTANDING

Father, in Jesus’ name, we come before You making request with intercession for us and all in our tent. Father, we thank You for these precious love gifts to the Body of Christ. (Ephesians 1:16; 4: 8)

Thank You, Father, that the Son of God has come, and has given us and all our tent understanding, in order that we might know Him Who is true. (1 John 5: 30)

Thank You, Father that wisdom is in the presence of the One Who has understanding, and that because we and all our tent seek You, we can understand all things. For You give wisdom, and out of Your mouth comes knowledge and understanding. (Proverbs 17: 24; Proverbs 28:5; Proverbs 2: 6 KJV)

We pray we may be of quick understanding, and that our delight be in the reverential and obedient fear of the Lord. May we and all our tent not judge by what our eyes see, nor make a decision by what our ears hear; but with righteousness may we judge the poor, and decide with fairness for the afflicted of the earth.

May we smite the earth and the oppressor with the rod of our mouths, and with the breath of our lips slay the wicked. May righteousness be the belt around our loins, and faithfulness the belt around our waists. (Isaiah 11: 3-1 AMP?NAS)

**WISDOM

Thank You, Father, that we and all our tent have an anointing from the Holy One, and we know all things. (1 John 2:20 NAS/KJV)

Thank You, Father, that by Your doing we are in Christ Jesus, Who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness sanctification, and redemption. (1 Corinthians 1: 30)

We pray, Father, that we and all our tent will be wise and understanding, and show by our good behavior our deeds in the gentleness of wisdom that is from above: being first pure, then peaceable, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, unwavering, and without hypocrisy. And that the fruit of righteousness be sown in peace by us who make peace. (James 3: 13, 17, 18 NAS/KJV)

We pray that wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of our times and strength of salvation; and that the fear of the Lord is our treasure. (Isaiah 33:6 KJV)

**GUIDANCE

We pray that we and all our tent will trust in You, Lord, with all our hearts and that we will not lean on our own understanding. We pray that in all our ways we will acknowledge You, and You will make our paths straight. For You, Father, lead the humble in justice, and teach the humble Your way. (Proverbs 3: 5,6; Psalm 25: 9)

A man’s way is not in himself; nor is it in a man who walks to direct his steps. The steps of us and all our tent are ordered by You, Father, and You delight in our way. (Psalm 37: 23 KJV; Jeremiah 20: 23)

Make us to know Your ways, Father; teach us Your paths. Lead us in Your truth and teach us, for you are the God of our salvation; for You we wait all the day. (Psalm 25: 4, 5)

Thank You, Father, for You teach us and our whole tent to profit, and lead us in the way we should go. (Isaiah 48: 17)

**THOUGHTS, MOTIVES, RENEWED MIND

Father, we pray that we and all our tent be not conformed to this world, but that we be transformed by the renewing of our mind, that we may prove what Your will is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. That we pull down every stronghold, cast down every imagination and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. (Romans 12:2; 2Corinthians 10: 4, 5 KJV)

Father, 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, may we and all our tent let our minds dwell on these things. (Philippians 4: 8)

Create in us clean hearts, Holy Father, and renew a steadfast spirit within us. Do not cast us or any of our tent 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 will we teach transgressors Your ways, and sinners will be converted to You. (Psalm 51: 10-13)

Favor with Man

Praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved.  (Acts 2: 47 NKJV)

Thank You in advance LORD for favor with all mankind. For You, Lord, will bless the righteous. As with a shield You will surround us and all our tent with good will, pleasure and favor. (Psalms 5: 12 AMP)

Father, we pray 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 and all our tent 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)

Favor With God

We trust in You so that loving-kindness and mercy surround us. We do not trust in man and make flesh our strength. We trust You that we may be blessed. (Psalm 32 : 10 NAS/KJV; Jeremiah 17: 5, 7)

We continue in the Faith firmly established, grounded and settled, and steadfast. We are  not  moved from the Hope of the Gospel. (Colossians 1: 23 NAS/KJV)

We abide vitally united to You and Your words remain in and continue to live in our hearts so that we Ask  whatever we will and it is done for us. For You LORD have called and chosen us that we might go and bring forth much fruit, and keep on bearing lasting, remaining, abiding fruit, that You may be honored and glorified, and that we show and prove ourselves to be true followers and disciples of Yours. (John 15: 7, 16, 8 AMP/NAS/KJV)

LORD we continue building ourselves up on our most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keeping ourselves in the love of God and looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. (Jude 20,21 KJV)

Now to You LORD who are able to establish us, according to the Gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to Your revelation of the mystery which has been kept secret for long ages past but now is manifested, and by the Scriptures of the prophets, according to Your commandment which has been made known to all the nations, leading to obedience of faith, now to You be glory forever.

Praying for Our Households

**Saturday’s Prayer for: Families

Praying for our households…

Thank You, Father, that because we believe in the Lord Jesus, our households shall be saved.

As for us – our tent and each household – we will serve the Lord.We wives submit unto our own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ is the head of the Church, and He is the Saviour of the body. We are submissive, so that even if our husbands do not obey the Word, they may be won by our behavior – chaste and accompanied by the fear of God. Instead of relying on the outward adorning of our flesh, we will reach our husbands with the hidden person of our heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.

The older women will admonish the younger women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God not be blasphemed.

Each husband loves his wife as Christ loves the Church – that he love her as his own body – nourishing and cherishing her as Christ does the Church. Husbands dwell with their wives with understanding, giving honour to the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life, that their prayers not be hindered.

Let each man of you love his own wife as his very own self, and let the wife see that she respects and reverences her husband — that she notices him, regards him, prefers him, venerates and esteems him, and that she defers to him, praises him, loves him, honors him, and admires him exceedingly.

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 mighty warrior. How blessed we are to have our quiver full of them. We will train up our children in the nurture and the admonition of the Lord. They will not depart from the Way, the Truth, and the Life!

Our children will obey us in the Lord, for this is right! They will honor their father and their mother – all their lives – that they may live long on the earth. Fathers will not provoke or aggravate their children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. They will not exasperate their children in order that they not lose heart.

LORD, we reaffirm that we are persuaded that You are able to guard and keep what we’ve committed unto You! We rededicate our adult children to You! We stand unmoved and receive Your promise to pour out Your Spirit on our sons and daughters! We declare they will hear Your voice and sense Your presence and direction in their lives. Speak to their hearts as You pour out Your Spirit, LORD!

Thank You, LORD that because Your love and power is poured out on us, our prayers for our children are powerful! Thank You for loving our adult children as much as we do. We say, today, “For our adult children we have prayed and You, LORD, hear our prayers and grant our petition. We give You all praise and glory!! In the Mighty Name of Jesus!

We, Your children will hearken and listen to You that You may teach us the fear of the Lord. We will keep our tongues from evil and our lips from speaking deceit. We will depart from evil and do good. We will seek peace and pursue it, in order that we may have life and length of days and that we will see good.

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.

Father, today we bring our families, including our posterity, before the throne of grace as living memorials. In the name of Jesus, we bind ourselves, our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren to the truth of Your love, care, faithfulness, mercy and grace. Your grace is sufficient for all our needs, hurts and issues.

Thank You for drawing us to Yourself and giving us the courage to trust You, and the wisdom and understanding necessary to bring our needs and vulnerabilities to You. We ask You to bind up our brokenness and supply our 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.

Seek First the Kingdom of God

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)

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)

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, may we let our minds dwell on these things.

We allow you to create in us a clean heart, Holy Father, and to renew in us a steadfast spirit. We ask that the spirit of the Lord rest upon us – the spirit of wisdom and understanding, counsel and might and strength, the spirit of knowledge and of the reverential and obedient fear of the Lord. We pray that we ever be continually filled with the Holy Spirit and 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 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 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 longsuffering with joyfulness.

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 trust You, Lord, with all our hearts, and we lean not to our own understanding. We acknowledge You in all our ways, and You will 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!
