**Saturday’s Prayer for: Families
Ephesians 5: 33-6:4 (NKJV)
5:33 Nevertheless let each one of you in particular so love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.
6:1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. 2 “Honor your father and mother,” which is the first commandment with promise: 3 “that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth.”
4 And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord.
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)
Evening and morning and at noon will we pray and cry aloud and You will hear our voice. If one chases 1000 and 2 chases 10,000, we’re chasing billions…or trillions…or…only our God knows! Amen and Amen. (Psalm 55: 17)
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)
The Joy of the LORD is our strength! The banner over us is LOVE!
You LORD sought for one to make up the hedge and stand in the gap before You for the land so that You would not destroy it: but You found none. (Ezekiel 22:30 KJV) So we declare LORD here we are send us!
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments, imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when our obedience is fulfilled. (2 Corinthians 10:3-6 NKJV)
Father, we your mothers, sisters, daughters, grandmothers, aunts, nieces, granddaughters…all the women in our tent…stand in the gap for all our tent!
We confess our sin as wives for not obeying Your WORD…the lamp unto our feet and the light unto our path. Forgive us wives for refusing to submit unto our own husbands as to You LORD! Thank You we are the Forgiven!
We confess all unforgiveness that has kept us bound from receiving answers to our prayers! We loose ourselves from all that besets us! We refuse to be offended! We walk in forgiveness because we are the Forgiven! We give Grace to all whether they deserve it or not…because of the Grace that has been given us!
Father may we seek first Your Kingdom and take our assignment from You! We are in covenant with You! May we stop struggling with all that we cannot do and do what we can! We can PRAY! We can PRAISE! We can shout and we can dance! PRAYER is what we can do!
We declare that we are not in control! We cannot control all our people! We cannot control our situation! Even when we want what is best, we cannot control the outcome! We cannot make people behave! We cannot make people believe! We cannot make people be strong! Because we are not You!!! You alone LORD know the end! We fire ourselves from Your job LORD!
You will perfect that which concerns us! We are running a race…and we are not racing against each other for we are all in this race to win…and receive the victor’s crown! And then we are to lay it at Your feet.
No more unanswered prayer for our families! We renounce disobedience to Your plan for the family LORD! We the remnant in the Church who go forth in Your Name in these End Times to take Your Gospel to the Ends of the Earth…well, we just plain let go of what besets us and we go forth in Your Name!
There’s been such a mess in our families and therefore the Family of God that we have not known the Way much less led the Way! We begin this day no more giving ourselves any excuse!
We the Forgiven march forward in Forgiveness…North, South, East and West!
Blessed are we because we walk not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stand in the way of sinners, nor sit in the seat of the scornful. Our delight is in Your law, and in Your law do we meditate day and night. We are like trees planted by the rivers of water that bring forth our fruit in season. Our leaves do not wither and whatever we do prospers! Great peace have we who love Your law and nothing offends us or causes us to stumble! We hunger and thirst after righteousness!
As we go forth with JOY…saturated from our head to our feet…depositing JOY everywhere we place our feet…our blessed feet!!!…we are strong and courageous! We do not fear! Our enemy comes out against us one way and flees before us seven ways.
We abide in You LORD bearing fruit into old age! We are known by our LOVE for the brethren!! Gloooorrrrrryyyyyyy!!!! We have broken free into Your glorious liberty!
**Praying for Peace…
We are strong in You LORD and in the power of Your Might. We have on Your whole armor and we stand against the wiles of the devil. 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 heavenly places. Fully clad in the whole armor of God, we withstand in the evil day. When we’ve done all, we stand!
We gird up our loins with Truth. We have on the breastplate of Righteousness. Our feet are shod with the preparation of the Gospel of Peace. We have the shield of Faith which quenches every fiery dart of the wicked one. We have the helmet of Salvation and the sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God. Dressed in our armor we pray with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, watching to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints.
We do not forget Your laws and our hearts keep Your commands so that length of days and long life and peace are added to us. We do not let mercy and truth forsake us, but we bind them around our necks and write them on the tablet of our hearts so that we find favor and high esteem in the sight of God and man.
We trust in You LORD with all our hearts and we lean not on our own understanding. In all our ways we acknowledge You and You direct our paths. We are not wise in our own eyes. We fear You LORD and we depart from evil, gaining health to our flesh and strength to our bones. (Proverbs 3: 5-8)
We give attention to Your words LORD. We incline our ears to Your sayings. We don’t let them depart from our eyes. We keep them in the in the midst of our hearts because they are life to us who find them and health to all our flesh. We keep our hearts with all diligence for out of our heart springs the issues of life. (Proverbs 4:20-23)
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. (Gal. 5: 22-23)
We Rejoice in the Lord always! Again we say rejoice! We let our gentleness be known to all men. Our Lord is at hand! We are anxious for nothing! In everything by prayer and supplication we give thanks letting our requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guards our hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. (Phil. 4: 4-7)
Thank You LORD filling our mouths when we open them in order to boldly speak as we are led by You LORD, making known the mystery of the Gospel for which we are ambassadors in chains. (Ephesians 6: 10-20)
We hallow your Name today…the Lord who Smites…Jehovah-Nakah…when His mercy and long-suffering have been exhausted, the Lord smites in judgment. (Nissan 15)
Father thank You for being in control. Thank You for knowing all that we don’t know. Thanks for being there before us, with us, and following us…our rear guard… as well as our shepherd. Thanks for hovering over us…for spreading Your wings over us in Jesus’ Name. We are Your people and the sheep of Your pasture.
Thank You in advance for making the crooked way straight. For lifting us out of the mire…the pit…and for setting our feet on higher ground…in Heavenly places. Thank You for opening the door that can’t be shut and for shutting all the doors that can’t be opened.
You are our peace…our joy! We believe You and we receive You in Jesus’ Name! Thank You for healing us each one from the tops of our head to the tips of our toes in Jesus’ Name! We have not because we ask not…so we ask…believing and receiving what we ask for…we agree with You LORD so our prayers are answered in Jesus’ Name Amen and Amen. Love you Papa…Abba…Daddy God…You we love and are loved by…Woo Hoo!!!!
YOU’RE ALIVE!!! YOU’RE ALIVE!!!!!!!! Amen and Amen!!!!!!
**Praise and Worship
Because of Your adversaries, You have established a stronghold
from the mouths of children and nursing infants to silence…to still… the enemy and the avenger. (Psalm 8)
Yahweh our LORD! How magnificent is Your Name throughout the earth!
You have covered the heavens with Your majesty.
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.
Before we partake, we remember that Holy Communion is not a ritual to be observed. It is a blessing to be received. Because it is not a ritual, there is no prescribed bread or special drink required. In the Last Supper, Jesus used whatever He had at the table—bread commonly eaten at supper, and whatever they were drinking.
Psalm 103:1-5 (NKJV)
A Psalm of David.
1 Bless You Lord, O our soul;
And all that is within us, we bless Your Holy Name!
2 Bless You Lord, O our soul,
And we forget not all Your benefits:
3 You forgive all our iniquities,
You heal all our diseases,
4 You redeem our lives from destruction,
You crown us with lovingkindness and tender mercies,
5 You satisfy our mouths with good things,
So that our youth is renewed like the eagle.
Because we have confessed our sins…thoroughly examining ourselves…we are the forgiven. Because we have believed on the Lord Jesus Christ, we are saved…sozo…we are made complete…spirit, soul, and body. We are the healed. You forgive all our iniquities, you heal all our diseases.
Through Your blood, we are forgiven of all our sins…past, present and future…and made completely righteous.
To partake: Hold the bread in your hand and say:
Thank You, Father, for this broken bread that reminds us of the broken body of our Lord Jesus Christ, broken so that we and all our tent might be healed and made whole, spirit, soul and body.Thank You for the gift of Your Son. By the stripes that fell on His back, our bodies are healed and made whole from the crowns of our heads to the very soles of our feet. Every cell, every organ, every function of our bodies is healed, restored, and renewed. In Jesus’ name, we believe and we receive. Amen and Amen! Eat the bread.
Next: Take the cup in your hand and say:
Father, we thank you for the New Covenant, ratified and established in the precious blood of Jesus.
Lord Jesus, we thank You for Your precious blood. Your sin-free, disease-free, poverty-free life is in Your blood and Your precious shed blood has removed every sin from our lives. Today, we celebrate and partake of the inheritance of the Righteous, which is preservation, healing, wholeness and provision. Thank You Lord Jesus for loving us. Amen and Amen. Drink the wine, water, juice, etc.
Thank You LORD for redeeming us by the Blood of the Lamb and the WORD of our testimony! We are the REDEEMED and WE SAY SO!!! Amen and Amen.
And we thank You Father that every time we eat this bread and drink this cup, we are representing and signifying and proclaiming the Lord’s death until He comes again.
**Praying for America 1b
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. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. (1 Timothy 2:1-4 NKJV)
Our Father in Heaven, we bless Your Holy Name. We lift up the Name of Jesus…leaning not on our own understanding…acknowledging You the Almighty God of blessings…the God of Might and Strength. You are our Peace…the Hope of Salvation for America. We offer prayers, supplications and thanksgiving for our government leaders: President Trump, Mike Pence and all his cabinet and staff, representatives, senators, judges, police men and women, governors, mayors and all who are in authority who obey Your WORD, Jesus Christ, the Way, the Truth and the Life. We pray Psalm 91 over the faithful. No evil shall befall them. They are protected under Your wings LORD! NO harm comes to them in Jesus’ Name.
Above all, we pray that Your Kingdom come and Your will be done in the United States of America even as You have ordained it to be in heaven. Thank You for a spiritual awakening in our Nation! We proclaim that the knowledge of the Glory of the Lord will cover America from sea to shining sea, from border to border, in the name of Jesus.
Thank You LORD for hearing the cry of the Church world-wide for this time to have such a man lead us…a man who does what he says. He believes that America must be strong because as America goes so goes the world. He believes with us that we are protectors of the apple of Your eye and he stands clear on that issue with his stand for Jerusalem as capital of Israel. Thank you for his stand to protect the unborn and Your Divine Favor is upon him.
LORD, We in America ask for all those in all the nations to pray for our president! We have never witnessed such open persecution of a president since our beginning. Our media stands and tries to defeat him every hour of every day. No weapon raised against him prospers! Every tongue raised against him in judgment we condemn for this is the heritage of the saints. In Jesus’ Name Amen and Amen.
Thank You LORD for Donald Trump! We stand with him and his decision to back out of the Iranian deal. Thank You for his sold-out effort to right the wrong done by his predecessor when billions of dollars were given over to Iran during the night without we Americans knowing what was being done. We salute our president! Woo Hoo!! Bless him as he has met with Korea LORD…may Your Kingdom come…and Your Will Be Done in Jesus’ Name.
Thank You LORD for the opening of the Jerusalem Embassy and for David Friedman our new and the first ambassador of true Israel. Truly a historic event LORD! Seventy years LORD! A Biblical Generation since 1948 when Truman declared Jerusalem the capital of Israel and Israel became a nation. Thank You for Your protection from On High as all hell was breaking loose. Only You God! Only You!
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)
Lord, we implore you to make our schools a place where our children can learn in physical, emotional and spiritual safety. Give them godly teachers who encourage them and are dedicated to them. Give them the support systems at home and at school that would enable them to achieve great things in Your Name. (Luke 6:40) (Nissan 15)
Lord, return the state of marriage to a place of honor in our country. We praise You for sturdy marriages that model Your commitment to the Church. Let hope and healing now come to those marriages that are strained and breaking. (Hebrews 13:4)
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)
**We Stand With Israel …
We 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 President Trump and ALL Your people LORD!
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.
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)
Father, in Your mercy vanquish the tremendously powerful religious spirits which dominate the whole territory—Jewish, Christian and others. (Nissan 15)
We pray that, in the midst of the pressures, the people of Israel will turn to You, God. We pray that You will hear the heart cries of people in this land and have mercy. As it says in Isaiah 30:19, “You shall weep no more. He will be very gracious to you at the sound of your cry. When He hears it, He will answer.”
**Standing 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)
God for all peoples, raise up a generation who will proclaim Your gospel to every people group in the earth. Release an end-times student-volunteer missions movement. (Matthew 24:14) (Nissan 15)
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)
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)
Restore our cities and counties to communities of safety, prosperity and hope. Save and encourage those caught in cycles of poverty, sickness, addiction, brokenness, violence, unforgiveness and despair. (Is. 58:12)
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)
**Praying in Agreement with James Nesbit for America
On this Good Friday, we celebrate You Good Father, On this 89th day of President Trumps third year in office, and 819th day of his first term.
Adonai, all those years ago,
You took bread, and when You had given thanks, You broke it, and gave to them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.
Through the honor of remembering, we bring the power of this eternal act into our moment in time.
We know that the Body of Christ all over the nation, has been
Receiving Communion this week on behalf of our nation; We join them in Magnifying the Glory of Your Healing Victory on this Good Friday.
All of you praying with us, if it is in your ability to do so, take and eat, and lift up the cup.
O Father, we will sing of Your lovingkindness for ever:
With our mouths, daily, we will support our President and those charged to lead us in this hour; And make known Your faithfulness to all generations.
You have said, Mercy shall be built up for ever; And in Your faithfulness You have established the very heavens.
It is interesting that the Mueller Report was released yesterday
On the 88th day (double new beginnings) of President Trumps third year in office (no collusion-no obstruction.)
We know the swamp snakes, will still beat their impeachment drums, snakes and devils do, what snakes and devils do!
But as we have from the beginning, declared, No Weapon formed against President Trump will prosper, and we decree that every effort and evil intent to destroy him, will return in double portion to those engineering and engaged in the attempted take down!
You have made a covenant with Your chosen, I have sworn unto David Your servant: Your seed that will You establish for ever, And build up his throne to all generations.
Thank You, for choosing President Trump to get the job done, in moving the American Embassy to Jerusalem, and declaring that it is the eternal capital of Jerusalem.
Thank You, for giving this man the backbone to recognize Israel’s right to the Golan, the ancient land of the Tribe Of Manasseh.
The heavens and the earth praise Your wonders, O Jehovah; Your faithfulness also in the assembly of the holy ones. For who in the skies can be compared unto Jehovah?
Who among the sons of the mighty is like unto You Jehovah, A God very terrible in the council of the holy ones, And to be feared above all them that are round about him?
O Jehovah God of hosts, Who is a mighty one, like unto You?
And Your faithfulness is round about You.
You rule the pride of the sea: When the waves thereof arise, thou still them. Thou have broken Rahab in pieces, as one that is slain; Thou hast scattered Your enemies with the arm of Your strength.
Thank You, for bearing the arm of Your strength, in the affairs of our nation in this hour, thank You for overturning the tables demons have set for the destruction of America.
The heavens are Yours the earth also is Yours: The world and the fulness thereof, it is Your Lord who has founded them.
The north and the south, You have created them; We rejoice The strength of Your mighty arm; Strong is Your hand, and high is Your right hand.
Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne: Lovingkindness and truth go before Your face.
Blessed are the people that know the joyful sound of Your heavenly anthem: We walk, O Jehovah, in the light of Your countenance.
In Your name do we rejoice all the day; And in Your righteousness are leaders, who love and fear Your Name are exalted.
For You are the glory of their strength; And in Your favor their horn has been and shall be exalted.
For our shield belongs unto You Great Jehovah; in fact our everything belongs to You;
And our king to the Holy One of Israel.
And in His Mighty Name we present All of this to You.
**Psalm 119:169-176 (NKJV)
169 Let my cry come before You, O Lord;
Give me understanding according to Your word.
170 Let my supplication come before You;
Deliver me according to Your word.
171 My lips shall utter praise,
For You teach me Your statutes.
172 My tongue shall speak of Your word,
For all Your commandments are righteousness.
173 Let Your hand become my help,
For I have chosen Your precepts.
174 I long for Your salvation, O Lord,
And Your law is my delight.
175 Let my soul live, and it shall praise You;
And let Your judgments help me.
176 I have gone astray like a lost sheep;
Seek Your servant,
For I do not forget Your commandments.
**Psalm 43 (NKJV) Prayer to God in Time of Trouble
43 Vindicate me, O God,
And plead my cause against an ungodly nation;
Oh, deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man!
2 For You are the God of my strength;
Why do You cast me off?
Why do I go mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
3 Oh, send out Your light and Your truth!
Let them lead me;
Let them bring me to Your holy hill
And to Your tabernacle.
4 Then I will go to the altar of God,
To God my exceeding joy;
And on the harp I will praise You,
O God, my God.
5 Why are you cast down, O my soul?
And why are you disquieted within me?
Hope in God;
For I shall yet praise Him,
The help of my countenance and my God.
**Proverbs 15 (NKJV) A Soft Answer Turns Away Wrath
15 A soft answer turns away wrath,
But a harsh word stirs up anger.
2 The tongue of the wise uses knowledge rightly,
But the mouth of fools pours forth foolishness.
3 The eyes of the Lord are in every place,
Keeping watch on the evil and the good.
4 A wholesome tongue is a tree of life,
But perverseness in it breaks the spirit.
5 A fool despises his father’s instruction,
But he who receives correction is prudent.
6 In the house of the righteous there is much treasure,
But in the revenue of the wicked is trouble.
7 The lips of the wise disperse knowledge,
But the heart of the fool does not do so.
8 The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord,
But the prayer of the upright is His delight.
9 The way of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord,
But He loves him who follows righteousness.
10 Harsh discipline is for him who forsakes the way,
And he who hates correction will die.
11 Hell and Destruction are before the Lord;
So how much more the hearts of the sons of men.
12 A scoffer does not love one who corrects him,
Nor will he go to the wise.
13 A merry heart makes a cheerful countenance,
But by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.
14 The heart of him who has understanding seeks knowledge,
But the mouth of fools feeds on foolishness.
15 All the days of the afflicted are evil,
But he who is of a merry heart has a continual feast.
16 Better is a little with the fear of the Lord,
Than great treasure with trouble.
17 Better is a dinner of herbs where love is,
Than a fatted calf with hatred.
18 A wrathful man stirs up strife,
But he who is slow to anger allays contention.
19 The way of the lazy man is like a hedge of thorns,
But the way of the upright is a highway.
20 A wise son makes a father glad,
But a foolish man despises his mother.
21 Folly is joy to him who is destitute of discernment,
But a man of understanding walks uprightly.
22 Without counsel, plans go awry,
But in the multitude of counselors they are established.
23 A man has joy by the answer of his mouth,
And a word spoken in due season, how good it is!
24 The way of life winds upward for the wise,
That he may turn away from hell below.
25 The Lord will destroy the house of the proud,
But He will establish the boundary of the widow.
26 The thoughts of the wicked are an abomination to the Lord,
But the words of the pure are pleasant.
27 He who is greedy for gain troubles his own house,
But he who hates bribes will live.
28 The heart of the righteous studies how to answer,
But the mouth of the wicked pours forth evil.
29 The Lord is far from the wicked,
But He hears the prayer of the righteous.
30 The light of the eyes rejoices the heart,
And a good report makes the bones healthy.
31 The ear that hears the rebukes of life
Will abide among the wise.
32 He who disdains instruction despises his own soul,
But he who heeds rebuke gets understanding.
33 The fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom,
And before honor is humility.
**Saturday’s Prayer Blanket: Families
Nevertheless let each one of you in particular so love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.
Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother,” which is the first commandment with promise: “that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth.”
And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord. (Ephesians 5: 33-6:4 NKJ)
Praying for our men (from birth onward)
We lift up our men to You! We boldly approach Your throne of grace in their behalf!
In the Name of Jesus, we bind each man’s spirit, soul and body to the will and purpose of God for his life! We bind each mind, will, and emotion to the will of God! We bind each man to the Truth and to the Blood of Jesus! We bind each mind to the mind of Christ! We declare that the very thoughts, feelings and purposes of Jesus’ heart become each man’s thoughts, feelings and purposes!
We loose every old, wrong, ungodly pattern of thinking, attitude, idea, desire, belief, motivation, habit, and behavior from each and every man in Jesus’ Name! We tear down, crush, smash, stomp, and destroy every stronghold associated with these things in Jesus’ Name! We loose any stronghold in any and every man in our tent’s life that has been justifying and protecting any hard feelings they have held against anyone. We loose the strongholds of unforgiveness, fear, distrust, pride, lust, hate, death wish, self-hate, self-indulgence, suicide, jealousy, greed, alcohol addiction, drug addiction, food addiction…and any and all wickedness attached to each and every man we are praying for!
Thank You Father for Your power and authority to bind and loose and thank You for the power of agreement as we pray with prayer warriors! Thank You for our mission to pray into the light all darkness…we are vigilant to pray for our men!
Thank You LORD for commissioning Your ministering spirits to go forth and provide the necessary help and assistance for each one to succeed in what You have planned! For Your plans are for good and not evil…to give us a future and a hope. You LORD are our very present help in trouble…and we praise You and thank You for Your LOVE, MERCY…and GRACE!
Father we lay hold of each of our men’s salvation…his confession of the Lordship of Jesus Christ…whether spoken many years ago or only recently…or many times…though we do not yet see the fruit! We…Your intercessors LORD…speak of things that are not as though they were, for we choose to look at the unseen—the eternal things of God! We walk not by sight but by Faith!
We declare that satan will not get an advantage over any of our men, for we are not ignorant of satan’s devices. We submit to God! We resist satan, and he has to run in terror from any and all of our men in the Name of Jesus! We give satan no place in any of them!
Thank You LORD for filling the vacant places with Your redemption, Your Word, Your Holy Spirit, Your love, Your wisdom, Your righteousness, and Your revelation knowledge in the Name of Jesus!
Thank You LORD that the BLOOD LINE has been drawn around each of them and we thank You that every enslaving yoke is broken! No more shackles of sin and death on our men! All bound and bond-slave to JESUS CHRIST alone! NO GOD but JEHOVAH!!
Hallelujah! All of our men walk in the Kingdom of God, which is righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit! Praise the LORD! Amen!
**Proverbs 1 (NKJV) The Beginning of Knowledge
1 The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel:
2 To know wisdom and instruction,
To perceive the words of understanding,
3 To receive the instruction of wisdom,
Justice, judgment, and equity;
4 To give prudence to the simple,
To the young man knowledge and discretion—
5 A wise man will hear and increase learning,
And a man of understanding will attain wise counsel,
6 To understand a proverb and an enigma,
The words of the wise and their riddles.
7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge,
But fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Shun Evil Counsel
8 My son, hear the instruction of your father,
And do not forsake the law of your mother;
9 For they will be a graceful ornament on your head,
And chains about your neck.
10 My son, if sinners entice you,
Do not consent.
11 If they say, “Come with us,
Let us lie in wait to shed blood;
Let us lurk secretly for the innocent without cause;
12 Let us swallow them alive like Sheol,
And whole, like those who go down to the Pit;
13 We shall find all kinds of precious possessions,
We shall fill our houses with spoil;
14 Cast in your lot among us,
Let us all have one purse”—
15 My son, do not walk in the way with them,
Keep your foot from their path;
16 For their feet run to evil,
And they make haste to shed blood.
17 Surely, in vain the net is spread
In the sight of any bird;
18 But they lie in wait for their own blood,
They lurk secretly for their own lives.
19 So are the ways of everyone who is greedy for gain;
It takes away the life of its owners.
The Call of Wisdom
20 Wisdom calls aloud outside;
She raises her voice in the open squares.
21 She cries out in the chief concourses,
At the openings of the gates in the city
She speaks her words:
22 “How long, you simple ones, will you love simplicity?
For scorners delight in their scorning,
And fools hate knowledge.
23 Turn at my rebuke;
Surely I will pour out my spirit on you;
I will make my words known to you.
24 Because I have called and you refused,
I have stretched out my hand and no one regarded,
25 Because you disdained all my counsel,
And would have none of my rebuke,
26 I also will laugh at your calamity;
I will mock when your terror comes,
27 When your terror comes like a storm,
And your destruction comes like a whirlwind,
When distress and anguish come upon you.
28 “Then they will call on me, but I will not answer;
They will seek me diligently, but they will not find me.
29 Because they hated knowledge
And did not choose the fear of the Lord,
30 They would have none of my counsel
And despised my every rebuke.
31 Therefore they shall eat the fruit of their own way,
And be filled to the full with their own fancies.
32 For the turning away of the simple will slay them,
And the complacency of fools will destroy them;
33 But whoever listens to me will dwell safely,
And will be secure, without fear of evil.”
**The Power of a Praying Wife — Chapter 1, page 44
**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 do hear Your voice and sense Your presence and direction in their lives. Thank you for speaking 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 more than 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.
**LORD’s Prayer and Prayer of Jabez
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!
We hallow your Name today…the Lord who Smites…Jehovah-Nakah…when His mercy and long-suffering have been exhausted, the Lord smites in judgment. (Nissan 15)
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.
We have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer us who live, but Christ lives in us; and the life which now we live in the flesh we live by the faith of 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 healing wells of living water dug up.
Blessing from us to you!
May the LORD Bless us and Watch over us. May HE Guard us… and Keep us forever and ever!
May the LORD make HIS Face to Shine Upon us and May HE Enlighten us.
May HE Be Gracious unto us…Kind…Merciful and Giving us HIS Favor!!
May the LORD Bless us and Watch Over us! May HE Guard us and Keep us ALWAYS!!!
May our LORD JESUS CHRIST…the LORD sitting at the right hand of the FATHER…through that same SPIRIT that raised JESUS from the dead…Lift Up HIS Approving Countenance upon us.
May our God…Jehovah…Yaweh…Yeshua Hamashiach give us Tranquility of Heart…HIS Peace that passes ALL Understanding…HIS SHALOM. May we walk in HIS life continually and forever.
From Numbers 6:24-26 (AMPC)
