TODAY’S PRAISE AND WORSHIP:
16 And He saw that there was no man,
And was astonished that there was no one to intercede;
Then His own arm brought salvation to Him,
And His righteousness upheld Him.
17 He put on righteousness like a breastplate,
And a helmet of salvation on His head;
And He put on garments of vengeance for clothing
And wrapped Himself with zeal as a mantle. (Isaiah 59:16-17 NASB)
10. Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11. We put on the whole armor of God, that we may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore we take up the whole armor of God, that we may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14. We stand therefore, having girded your loins with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod our feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which we will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints— 19 and for us, that utterance may be given to us, that we may open our mouths boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which we are ambassadors in chains; that in it we may speak boldly, as we ought to speak. (Ephesians 6:10-20 NKJV, KJV)
Thus says the Lord: So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it. (Isaiah 55:11 NKJV)
As for us and our house, we will serve the Lord. (Joshua 24:15b NKJV)
The Lord gave the word: great was the company of women that published it. (Psalm 68:11 KJV, MEV)
Evening and morning and at noon will we pray and cry aloud and He will hear our voice. (Psalm 55:17 KJV)
Today we hallow your Name…The Lord that Heals…Jehovah-Rophe…Yahweh Ropheka…our healer, spiritually and physically.
The Joy of the LORD is our strength! The banner over us is LOVE!
As we come into Your presence LORD with singing…we know that YOU WILL DO ALL THINGS IF WE JUST LIFT UP YOUR NAME!!!
We do not fear our enemies for our LORD is great and awesome! Therefore we stand and fight for our brothers and sisters, our sons and daughters, our grandchildren, our husbands and wives…our nephews and nieces and aunts and uncles and cousins and parents…and our whole household…all our friends…our tent! (Nehemiah 4:14b)
YOU’RE ALIVE!!! YOU’RE ALIVE!!!!!!!! Amen and Amen!!!!!!
Psalm 8 (HCSB) God’s Glory, Man’s Dignity For the choir director: on the Gittith. A Davidic psalm.
1 Yahweh, our Lord,
how magnificent is Your name throughout the earth!
You have covered the heavens with Your majesty.
2 Because of Your adversaries,
You have established a stronghold
from the mouths of children and nursing infants
to silence the enemy and the avenger.
Psalm 100 (KJV)
100 Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.
2 Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing.
3 Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
5 For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
1 Corinthians 11:23-26 (AMPC)
23 For I received from the Lord Himself that which I passed on to you [it was given to me personally], that the Lord Jesus on the night when He was treacherously delivered up and while His betrayal was in progress took bread,
24 And when He had given thanks, He broke [it] and said, Take, eat. This is My body, which is broken for you. Do this to call Me [affectionately] to remembrance.
25 Similarly when supper was ended, He took the cup also, saying, This cup is the new covenant [ratified and established] in My blood. Do this, as often as you drink [it], to call Me [affectionately] to remembrance.
26 For every time you eat this bread and drink this cup, you are representing and signifying and proclaiming the fact of the Lord’s death until He comes [again].
**Evening and morning and at noon will we pray and cry aloud and He will hear our voice. Psalm 55:17 (KJV)
If one chases 1000 and 2 chases 10,000, we’re chasing billions…or trillions…or…only our God knows! Amen and Amen.
Friday Prayer: Priorities!
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
Praying For America
Father, in the name of Jesus, expose and cleanse us from any wrong attitudes and renew a right spirit within us. We come into Your presence thanking You for this nation that You ordained for Your purposes.
LORD, You exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men…for kings and all who are in authority that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. (1 Timothy 2:1 NKJV)
This means we are to PRAY for our President Donald Trump and all his cabinet. Why pray? Are we to jump to conclusions? Do we believe every voice just because it is on television or the social media? NO! We as the Church are to pray! We as American citizens are to pray! Our desire LORD is to live peaceable lives in all godliness and reverence but we forget to pray before we speak. Thank Your LORD for hearing our prayer as we align ourselves with Your WORD. We know that if we pray according to Your Word You hear us and if You hear us we have our petitions.
Thank You LORD for placing Your hand on our president and leading him and guiding him into all truth. Thank You LORD for the babies saved, for Jerusalem as the new capital of Israel, for freedom for Christian churches and businesses for not having to break Your law LORD in order to operate, for controlling the immigration of the enemy into this nation…We are full of PRAISE for what You are doing and will continue to do this term. We speak things that are not as though they were like our Father does. Amen and So Be It!
Thank You for Your wisdom as all of the cabinet settle into their special place. Give President Trump the grace and ability to maintain the intent and purposes of our founding fathers and help him and his cabinet to uphold the Constitution as it was written that freedom might continue–not the freedom to violate divine laws but the freedom to do what’s right. We acknowledge that You are God and everything was made by and for You. We speak peace over our nation and pray that no weapon formed against America shall be able to stand. Thank You, Father-God, for hearing our prayers.(Based on prayer, “Reinforcing American’s Vision” from Prayers That Avail Much for Leaders)
Gracious Father, we thank You for Your original plan to raise up our country to be a nation that would walk with You, and carry and send Your Gospel to all the Nations. We thank You for bringing into positions of authority and leadership– in government and every other public and private area of our lives– men and women who will be oaks of righteousness, who will walk with You and rebuild the ancient ruins, raise up the former desolations, and renew the ruined cities, the devastations of many generations. Thank You Father. In Jesus’ Name, Amen. (Isaiah 61:3b-4 AMPC)
Father we thank You for our new president, vice president and all the cabinet…all the staff that have a single focused goal to bring America under Your LORDSHIP. We ask You to remove all that are blocking righteousness…we call for resignations…or by whatever means You choose LORD to vacate Your nation’s government. We include all the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches. We speak that we are ONE nation under Jehovah God! In Jesus’ Name we ask You LORD for a radical move of Your Spirit through Washington D.C. and all of the state governments…to run out the money changers with Your whips…Amen and Amen.
LORD, we praise You and thank You for Gorsuch’s approval as supreme court justice! Thank You for moving the mountains…all the obstacles that stood in the way of this marvelous miracle! Thank You for the future supreme court justices that will also be such Godly men. We stand in the authority You have given us to speak things that are not as though they were! We continue to guard our mouths and hold our tongues from saying what You have not said about ourselves and others. Thank You LORD for our lining up with Your Word so that You hear us and give us our petitions…in Jesus’ Name…Amen and Amen.
In agreement with Germaine LORD we pray for School Systems and Universities: “Holy Spirit, Jesus told us that You would teach us ALL that He said, and He is the One in Whom ALL wisdom is hidden. Thank You for teaching us ALL things and to remind us of ALL that Jesus said. We ask You, Holy Spirit, to work in ALL these areas in our schools and educational systems and teach us these things.
Let all of America fear the Lord. Let all the inhabitants of the United States stand in awe of Him. Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, and the people whom He has chosen as His own inheritance. (Psalm 33:8, 12)
6. Let those who serve our country in the military not rely solely upon the strength of their weapons and intelligence, but first turn to You, Lord, the source of all wisdom and strength. Raise up men and women of faith among all ranks of the military and give them opportunity to witness to their fellow soldiers. (Matthew 8:5-12)
Lord, bring genuine reconciliation to the races of this nation. Remove long held prejudices, hatreds and hurts and replace them with Your healing love and fellowship. Bring peace, friendship and equal opportunity to all peoples and cultures. (Ephesians 2:14-16)
**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 prayer will ring from the schools and the homes. We declare all fornicators and sodomites 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.
We declare America is the light on the hill! We fly the Christian flag over this nation and declare Jesus is LORD of America…and all of her allies…all of Israel’s allies…in Jesus’ Name.
Thank You for the washing of water by 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! Thank You for Your Mighty hand of protection as we go forth in each nation undetected by the authorities! We walk through the doors You open to the ends of the earth!
Strengthen us Your precious saints as We pray for one another in Jesus’ Name! As we rejoice …we arise in Your strength and power of Your might. As we forgive we are forgiven. As we share in Your sufferings…we share in Your Glory!
Thank You for the End-times’ prophets…all of them…and all of the 5-fold ministry! All of our leadership! We declare that all the false prophets…and all those standing in the 5-fold positions but not Your servants…we thank You for the whips to run them out of the Church!
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. 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!
We flee all manner of evil as we are bought with a price! 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! We are the redeemed of the LORD and we say so!
We are Your temple Holy Spirit…individually and corporately! We are not our own! We’ve been bought with a price! Therefore we glorify You in our bodies and in our spirits! We belong to You LORD! We are Your servants! Your sheep! Your creation! We are more than conquerors! We overcome by the Blood of the Lamb and the WORD of our testimony!
Father, we are Your heirs and co-heirs with our Brother JESUS! He is the first fruit of many Brethren! NO WEAPON RAISED AGAINST US PROSPERS!!
We choose LORD this Day to serve You with all our hearts! There is NO GOD but Jehovah!
LORD You have set before us Life and death!…Blessing and cursing!! We choose LIFE! LIFE EVERLASTING!
As we decrease…walking in the spirit of Elijah and John the Baptist…preparing Your Way LORD…and allowing You to increase in us…we overcome the world! We demolish strongholds throughout the western and eastern world in the power of Your Might!
We thank YOU Father for the releasing of our spirits, souls and bodies from all that has held us back …here… today! You LORD put an end to the devil’s 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 You LORD and it can’t hold us Your Body either! We arise LORD! We are the Body of Christ! WE STAND!!!
Can You hear Holy Spirit…precious saints?
GRACE! GRACE! GRACE! GRACE! GRACE! GRACE! GRACE!
We thank You LORD that we are hidden in You and though a thousand fall at our side and 10,000 at our right hand it shall not come near us. You are our fortress and refuge! We do not fear!
Instead LORD we are ignited! We Hear You…LION OF JUDAH! We Your Body ROAR!!!
The earth is Yours LORD GOD ALMIGHTY!
WORTHY are You LAMB OF GOD!!!
Forever and ever and ever and ever!!!!!
Israel and our Youth…
**Lord, we lift up Israel and pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
Thus says the LORD: For Zion’s sake I will not hold My peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until her righteousness goes forth as brightness and her salvation as a lamp that burns. I have set watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem. They shall never hold their peace day or night.
You who make mention of the LORD, do not keep silent, and give Him no rest till He establishes and till He makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth. (Isaiah 62:1, 6, 7)
So shall they fear the Name of the LORD from the west, and His glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy comes in, like a flood the Spirit of the LORD will lift up a standard against him. “The Redeemer will come to Zion and to those who turn from transgression in Jacob,” says the LORD. (Isaiah 59:19, 20)
We declare the United States will not deny Israel! We declare all the allies of the United States also will not deny Israel! You LORD Bless those who Bless Israel and You LORD ALMIGHTY curse those who curse Israel!!!
We declare Psalm 91 over Benjamin Netanyahu and all Israel’s army…and all Your people LORD! We stand with Israel and we declare Your Word! It will not return void, but will accomplish what You desire and achieve the purpose for which You sent it!
Father God, remove the veil You have sovereignly placed over the eyes of Israel, that they would recognize Jesus as their Messiah. (2 Corinthians 3:14)
6. Destroy and divide the tongues of those who would incite violence against Israel. (Psalm 55:9) In the name of Jesus, we bind every false religion and false doctrine that does not acknowledge Your eternal plan for the land and people of Israel.
and For our Youth…
God of Elijah, God of our fathers. We declare that the Spirit You are pouring out on the youth of America is stronger than any rebellion and will work to turn the nation back to God. (Luke 1:7)
Jesus, You are the great freedom fighter. We declare You will arise and contend against the enemies of our children and You will save them. We declare freedom from rebellion, freedom from sexual addiction and perversion, freedom from drugs and the occult. We declare a great spiritual jail break for the youth of America. (Isaiah 49:25)
6. Great Shepherd, we declare that You will teach the youth of America your ways and the fear of the Lord. We declare healing and deliverance shall break out over the land and the shalom of heaven will fill our youth. (Isaiah 54:13)
In mercy, LORD, reveal Yourself to those who do not even seek after You, those who have turned away, those who are ignorant of their own need for Your saving grace in their lives. We thank You, Father, for each one who has strayed away from Your household coming to himself, in Jesus Name! Thank You that today is the day of salvation, and our children’s hearts are not hardened! They will not fall in the wilderness! They will reach their promised land! (Romans 10:20; Isaiah 65:1; Luke 15:17; 2 Corinthians 6:2; Hebrews 3:8, 15, 4:7)
LORD of the Harvest, we proclaim You will thrust laborers into the End Times’ Harvest throughout the world…especially in the fields of intercessory prayer, finances, and hearers to go forth in Jesus’ Name!!
Jesus, lover of our souls, burn Your passions in our hearts! Seal our affections! Let Your flame of love break unclean addictions of the human heart. (Song of Songs)
**THINK ON THESE THINGS…SELAH!
Philippians 4:8 (NKJV)
8 Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.
Philippians 2:14-16 (NKJV)
14 Do all things without complaining and disputing, 15 that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, 16 holding fast the word of life, so that I may rejoice in the day of Christ that I have not run in vain or labored in vain.
Galatians 5:22-26 (NKJV)
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. 24 And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.
**John 3:16-17 (NKJV)
16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
Romans 10:8b-10 (NKJV)
8 … “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith which we preach): 9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
1 John 1:9 (NKJV)
9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Matthew 10:1, 7-8 (NKJV)
10:1 And when He had called His twelve disciples to Him, He gave them power over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease.
7 And as you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.
Matthew 28:18-20 (NKJV)
18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.
Isaiah 43:1-3a (NKJV)
The Redeemer of Israel
43 But now, thus says the Lord, who created you, O Jacob,
And He who formed you, O Israel:
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by your name;
You are Mine.
2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you.
When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned,
Nor shall the flame scorch you.
3 For I am the Lord your God,
The Holy One of Israel (Qedosh Yisrael), your Savior (Yasha)
Proverbs 18:10 (MEV)
10 The name of the Lord is a strong tower;
the righteous run into it and are safe.
Jeremiah 29:11 (TLB)
11 For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
Hebrews 11:1 (NKJV)
11 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Romans 10:17 (NKJV)
17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
James 1:2-8 (NKJV)
Profiting from Trials
2 My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, 3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. 4 But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. 5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. 6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. 7 For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; 8 he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
Romans 5:1-5 (NKJV)
Faith Triumphs in Trouble
5 Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3 And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; 4 and perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8 (NKJV)
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.
13 And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
Ephesians 3:14-21 (NKJV)
Appreciation of the Mystery
14 For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, 15 from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, 16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, 17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— 19 to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
20 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, 21 to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
1 Thessalonians 3:12-13 (NKJV)
12 And may the Lord make you increase and abound in love to one another and to all, just as we do to you, 13 so that He may establish your hearts blameless in holiness before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all His saints.
Galatians 5:6 (NKJV)
6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but faith working through love.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NKJV)
16 Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
Philippians 4:4-7 (NKJV)
4 Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!
5 Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand.
6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Exodus 15:26 (NKJV)
26 … “If you diligently heed the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the Lord who heals you.”
James 5:13-18 (NKJV)
Meeting Specific Needs
13 Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing psalms. 14 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. 16 Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed.
The earnest, heartfelt, continued prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available, dynamic in its working. (AMPC) 17 Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain; and it did not rain on the land for three years and six months. 18 And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth produced its fruit.
1 John 5:14-15 (NKJV)
14 Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 15 And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.
John 14:21, 23-24(NKJV)
21 He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.”
23 Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him. 24 He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father’s who sent Me.
**Colossians 1 (NKJV)
1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timothy our brother,
2 To the saints and faithful brethren in Christ who are in Colosse:
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.[a]
Their Faith in Christ
3 We give thanks to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you, 4 since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of your love for all the saints; 5 because of the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, of which you heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel, 6 which has come to you, as it has also in all the world, and is bringing forth fruit,[b] as it is also among you since the day you heard and knew the grace of God in truth; 7 as you also learned from Epaphras, our dear fellow servant, who is a faithful minister of Christ on your behalf, 8 who also declared to us your love in the Spirit.
Preeminence of Christ
9 For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; 10 that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; 11 strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy; 12 giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light. 13 He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, 14 in whom we have redemption through His blood,[c] the forgiveness of sins.
15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. 17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. 18 And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.
Reconciled in Christ
19 For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell, 20 and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross.
21 And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled 22 in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight— 23 if indeed you continue in the faith, grounded and steadfast, and are not moved away from the hope of the gospel which you heard, which was preached to every creature under heaven, of which I, Paul, became a minister.
Sacrificial Service for Christ
24 I now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up in my flesh what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ, for the sake of His body, which is the church, 25 of which I became a minister according to the stewardship from God which was given to me for you, to fulfill the word of God, 26 the mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints. 27 To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which[d] is Christ in you, the hope of glory. 28 Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus. 29 To this end I also labor, striving according to His working which works in me mightily.
**Revelation 12 (NKJV)
The Woman, the Child, and the Dragon
1 Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars. 2 Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth.
3 And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads. 4 His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born. 5 She bore a male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her Child was caught up to God and His throne. 6 Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days.
Satan Thrown Out of Heaven
7 And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, 8 but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them[a] in heaven any longer. 9 So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
10 Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. 12 Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time.”
The Woman Persecuted
13 Now when the dragon saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male Child. 14 But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. 15 So the serpent spewed water out of his mouth like a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood. 16 But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the flood which the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. 17 And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.[b]
**PSALM 91 (NKJV) Safety of Abiding in the Presence of God
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.”
**Psalm 119:9-16 (NKJV)
9 How can a young man cleanse his way?
By taking heed according to Your word.
10 With my whole heart I have sought You;
Oh, let me not wander from Your commandments!
11 Your word I have hidden in my heart,
That I might not sin against You.
12 Blessed are You, O Lord!
Teach me Your statutes.
13 With my lips I have declared
All the judgments of Your mouth.
14 I have rejoiced in the way of Your testimonies,
As much as in all riches.
15 I will meditate on Your precepts,
And contemplate Your ways.
16 I will delight myself in Your statutes;
I will not forget Your word.
**Psalm 130 (NKJV)
Waiting for the Redemption of the Lord
A Song of Ascents.
130 Out of the depths I have cried to You, O Lord;
2 Lord, hear my voice!
Let Your ears be attentive
To the voice of my supplications.
3 If You, Lord, should mark iniquities,
O Lord, who could stand?
4 But there is forgiveness with You,
That You may be feared.
5 I wait for the Lord, my soul waits,
And in His word I do hope.
6 My soul waits for the Lord
More than those who watch for the morning—
Yes, more than those who watch for the morning.
7 O Israel, hope in the Lord;
For with the Lord there is mercy,
And with Him is abundant redemption.
8 And He shall redeem Israel
From all his iniquities.
**Proverbs 6 (NKJV)
6 My son, if you become surety for your friend,
If you have shaken hands in pledge for a stranger,
2 You are snared by the words of your mouth;
You are taken by the words of your mouth.
3 So do this, my son, and deliver yourself;
For you have come into the hand of your friend:
Go and humble yourself;
Plead with your friend.
4 Give no sleep to your eyes,
Nor slumber to your eyelids.
5 Deliver yourself like a gazelle from the hand of the hunter,
And like a bird from the hand of the fowler.[a]
The Folly of Indolence
6 Go to the ant, you sluggard!
Consider her ways and be wise,
7 Which, having no captain,
Overseer or ruler,
8 Provides her supplies in the summer,
And gathers her food in the harvest.
9 How long will you slumber, O sluggard?
When will you rise from your sleep?
10 A little sleep, a little slumber,
A little folding of the hands to sleep—
11 So shall your poverty come on you like a prowler,
And your need like an armed man.
The Wicked Man
12 A worthless person, a wicked man,
Walks with a perverse mouth;
13 He winks with his eyes,
He shuffles his feet,
He points with his fingers;
14 Perversity is in his heart,
He devises evil continually,
He sows discord.
15 Therefore his calamity shall come suddenly;
Suddenly he shall be broken without remedy.
16 These six things the Lord hates,
Yes, seven are an abomination to Him:
17 A proud look,
A lying tongue,
Hands that shed innocent blood,
18 A heart that devises wicked plans,
Feet that are swift in running to evil,
19 A false witness who speaks lies,
And one who sows discord among brethren.
Beware of Adultery
20 My son, keep your father’s command,
And do not forsake the law of your mother.
21 Bind them continually upon your heart;
Tie them around your neck.
22 When you roam, they[b] will lead you;
When you sleep, they will keep you;
And when you awake, they will speak with you.
23 For the commandment is a lamp,
And the law a light;
Reproofs of instruction are the way of life,
24 To keep you from the evil woman,
From the flattering tongue of a seductress.
25 Do not lust after her beauty in your heart,
Nor let her allure you with her eyelids.
26 For by means of a harlot
A man is reduced to a crust of bread;
And an adulteress[c] will prey upon his precious life.
27 Can a man take fire to his bosom,
And his clothes not be burned?
28 Can one walk on hot coals,
And his feet not be seared?
29 So is he who goes in to his neighbor’s wife;
Whoever touches her shall not be innocent.
30 People do not despise a thief
If he steals to satisfy himself when he is starving.
31 Yet when he is found, he must restore sevenfold;
He may have to give up all the substance of his house.
32 Whoever commits adultery with a woman lacks understanding;
He who does so destroys his own soul.
33 Wounds and dishonor he will get,
And his reproach will not be wiped away.
34 For jealousy is a husband’s fury;
Therefore he will not spare in the day of vengeance.
35 He will accept no recompense,
Nor will he be appeased though you give many gifts.
**Friday’s Prayer for: PRIORITIES!

Father, we pray that we will listen to Your commandments, and will diligently obey You, observing carefully to do all Your commandments which You have commanded us, so that we may be blessed in all that we put our hands to, in the land which You’ve given to us, both in the city, and in the country, abounding in all prosperity.
Father, we pray that in all respects, we may prosper and be in good health, even as our souls prosper.
We honor You with our capital and sufficiency from righteous labors and with the first fruits of all our income! Our storage places are filled with plenty! Our vats are overflowing with new wine!
We bring the whole tithe into the storehouse so there is food in Your House! We test You LORD to see You open for us the windows of Heaven and pour out for us a blessing …until there is no more need or room.

**NEEDS AND PRIORITIES
Father, You did not spare Your own Son, Jesus, but delivered Him up for us all. How then will You not also with Him freely give us all things?
Thank You, Father, You regard the prayer of the destitute and will not despise our prayer.
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.

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.
We bless You, Lord, for You daily load us with benefits. You are the God of our salvation. We bless You, Lord.
Father, Your blessing makes us rich, and You add no sorrow with it.
Father, we pray that because we are generous, we will be blessed.
We pray we be blessed to find wisdom, and gain understanding. For long life is in her right hand, and in wisdom’s left hand are riches and honor. She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her, and happy are we who hold wisdom fast.
For You, Lord, give grace and glory; no good thing will You withhold from us because we walk uprightly. O Lord of hosts, how blessed we are because we trust in You.
We pray that we delight ourselves in You, Lord, for You will give us the desires of our hearts. You know our days, and our inheritance will be forever. We will not be ashamed in the time of evil, and in the days of famine we will have abundance.
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!
6. Today we hallow your Name…The Lord that Heals…Jehovah-Rophe…Yahweh Ropheka…our healer, spiritually and physically.
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…but we do not live by bread alone but by every Word that proceeds from Your Mouth…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.
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 not 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 honoured and glorified – and that we may show and prove ourselves to be true followers and disciples of Yours!

And You LORD will make us a great nation and You will bless us abundantly, and make our name great, exalted, distinguished; and we shall be a blessing, a source of great good to others; And You LORD will bless, do good for, benefit, those who bless us, and You will curse, make subject to Your wrath and judgment, the ones who curse, despise, dishonor, have contempt for us. And in us all the families and nations of the earth will be blessed! (Genesis 12: 2-3)
Because we are generous, a source of blessing, we shall be prosperous and enriched, and we who water will ourselves be watered, reaping the generosity we have sown. (Proverbs 11:25)
So then while we as individual believers have the opportunity, we will do good to all people, not only being helpful, but also doing that which promotes their spiritual well-being, and especially be a blessing to those of the household of faith, born-again believers. (Galatians 6:10).
And there is hope for your future, says the Lord; your children shall come back to their own country. (Jeremiah 31:17, AMPC)
For the Promise is unto us…and to our children…and to all that are afar off, even as many as the LORD our God shall call! (Acts 2:39) You LORD will circumcise our hearts and the hearts of our seed…to love You LORD with all our hearts, and with all our souls, that we may live! (Deut. 30:6)
You LORD shall increase us more and more, us and our children! (Ps. 115: 14) The house of the righteous shall stand! (Prov. 12:7) The secret things belong unto You LORD; but those things which are revealed belong to us and our children forever, that we may do all the Words of the Law. (Deut. 29: 29)
We pray LORD for Women who Pray. We thank You for our assignment. We ask that Your Holy Spirit hover over each of our sons and daughters…our husbands…our siblings birthing life! The Life of Christ! We thank You for the nations that have responded to us and who are growing…many being saved…and many growing strong in their prayer lives! We release Your Holy Spirit to hover around Asha, Fred, Roseline, John, George, and Silas…and all that you have reached through them. Hover and bring the Life of Christ forth in each of them and in their churches. May the WORD spread quickly! May Your people arise and partner with us to carry forth this great assignment…that You LORD ordained and have Your hand on. Mighty is our God! And Mighty to be praised! To You LORD is all the glory! Amen and Amen!
Behold…we and our children whom You LORD have given us are for signs and for wonders in Israel and from the LORD of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion. (Isaiah 18: 18) …We will put our trust in YOU LORD…and again, behold we and the children you’ve given us! (Heb. 2: 13)
You LORD contend with him that contends with us…and You LORD will save our children. (Isaiah 49: 25) We have believed on You LORD JESUS and we are saved and our house! (Acts 16: 31)
Yes and Amen!
We are crucified with Christ; it is no longer us who live, but Christ lives in us; and the life which we now live in the flesh we live by faith in the Son of God, who loved us and gave Himself for us.
Declaration: We are the children of Abraham and we receive the 100-fold return on all that we sow in the Kingdom. Praise the LORD for all the wells of living water dug up.
**Psalm 112 (NKJV)
The Blessed State of the Righteous
112 Praise the Lord!
Blessed is the man who fears the Lord,
Who delights greatly in His commandments.
2 His descendants will be mighty on earth;
The generation of the upright will be blessed.
3 Wealth and riches will be in his house,
And his righteousness endures forever.
4 Unto the upright there arises light in the darkness;
He is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.
5 A good man deals graciously and lends;
He will guide his affairs with discretion.
6 Surely he will never be shaken;
The righteous will be in everlasting remembrance.
7 He will not be afraid of evil tidings;
His heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord.
8 His heart is established;
He will not be afraid,
Until he sees his desire upon his enemies.
9 He has dispersed abroad,
He has given to the poor;
His righteousness endures forever;
His horn will be exalted with honor.
10 The wicked will see it and be grieved;
He will gnash his teeth and melt away;
The desire of the wicked shall perish.
