Father, if I think back, take a good look at my life and am honest with myself, I have no reason to complain. If I take the time to examine where You brought me from and what You’ve brought me through I see the good You have shown me over the course of my days far out weights the bad. Thank You!

Even in the bad times You were working to mature and groom me in an effort to prepare me to become the person You created me to be. Today Father, I will not complain about whatever comes my way. Instead of complaining I will thank You for Your goodness and Your mercy, which is new to me every morning.

I will take time to consider Your goodness toward me and I will speak of Your love for me all day long. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Father You are my peace. More than just my peace, You are my Shalom. You are the reason I am complete; nothing missing out of my life, nothing out of place. You are the fulfillment of everything I need, when the need arises.

When everything seems to be going to hell in a handbasket, You lift up a standard again the enemy. Not just my enemies in the world, or my immortal enemy, but you lift up a standard against my enemies that rage in me.

You lift up a standard against the fear, doubt, anger, envy and jealousy that war in me. You lift up a standard against low self-esteem, low self-worth and my feeling guilty and ashamed of things I have done. Your love for me lifts me above the fray of the world and my shortcomings. When nothing else can help, Your love lifts me and gives me peace.

Lord, no matter what goes on today, help me to rest in Your peace. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Prayer for Today

This prayer is designed so that when we pray it, we are praying for everyone else reading this prayer. We are asking God to bless, keep, restore shelter and protect everyone else. We are praying in agreement with each other. When we do this, we are following God’s word:

Matthew 18:19 (ESV)

Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.”

September 21, 2015

Heavenly Father, our most gracious and loving God, I pray asking that You would abundantly bless everyone reading this prayer and their families. Please bless them spiritually, mentally, emotionally, physically and financially. They need a five-fold blessing!

Father Your word says that with the measure that we’ve measured out so shall it be measured back to us.  Your word says that as we sow so shall we also reap. Your word clearly states that if we give, it will be given unto us; in good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over.

Father, I ask right now that You would release spiritual, mental, emotional, physical and/or financial blessing into the homes, the hands and into the lives of everyone who is reading this prayer. You know exactly what each family needs. You are our Jehovah Jireh, our provision already met. Everything our families need has already been provided by You.

Father we are asking for the manifestation in the earth of what has already been ordained in heaven. Out of Your bounty in heaven, pour forth everything we need in accordance with Your riches in glory in Christ Jesus. We stand in agreement with each other and with Your word. In Jesus name we pray. Amen!

Lord God, with man things are impossible but with You, nothing is impossible!

Father it seems that one thing after another keeps springing up in my life. Just when I think I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, BAM, all goes black again because another issue has come up. I’m shaking my head! It feels like it will never stop!

On the outside it looks impossible but nothing is impossible for You. On the surface it looks like I’ll never make it through all the obstacles that are draining my finances, swallowing up my peace of mind and attacking my joy. I am exhausted just thinking about it all!

That is why I’m bringing all my baggage to You. Father, I need Your help with

God, the Father of heaven and earth, show me what I have in my life that I can give to You to help Your people. Lord, help me to see beyond the obvious, to look past what I see with my natural eye that may stop me from giving my best.

Father, I give you all my past hurts and shames that are holding me back. I give You my less than stellar esteem of myself and exchange it for esteeming myself in Christ Jesus. In Christ, there is no condemnation. In Christ, there is no shame. In Christ, my uniqueness is my strong suit for carrying out the tasks You prepared for me before the beginning of mankind.

Savior, help me to know and understand, through Godly wisdom, that I have been ordained by You for service. I have been given my gifts, talents and abilities to be utilized by You to help further the kingdom of God here on earth.

Give me the courage to use my gifts for You. Give me the courage to ignore what people may say and listen to only what You say so I may use my gifts as You have deemed appropriate. Give me Your strength and endurance so I can fulfill Your will for my life.

I believe You will answer my prayer. I thank You in advance for Your faithfulness to Your word over my life. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

September 15, 2015

Father, I want to thank You this morning for Your protection from dangers seen and unseen. You have been protecting me all my life, sometimes it didn’t feel like You were there, but even then You were protecting me from things and people that could have changed the course of my life for the worse or even taken my life.

Father sometimes Your protection is in the form of rejection, which is never a pleasant experience. Rejection makes my heart sink, causes me to feel inferior and makes me want to hide away because my feelings are hurt but, the reality is this: You use rejection as a tool to keep me safe from people, situations and circumstances that You know are not a part of Your call and plan for my life. Help me to see rejection as a gift from You.

Father, sometimes You use financial difficulty, illness or even the loss of a loved one to keep me safe and protect me from the schemes and plans of the enemy.

Lord, I declare that starting today I will not fight against Your protection of me. I will not grow angry, resentful or envious of others when You are at work covering, keeping and protecting me. Thank You for loving me so much You are willing to do whatever it takes to protect me from any and every one, or thing, that would harm me. You even protect me from me! Thank you Father!

In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Prayer for Today

Father, I pray for a spirit of diligence. Too often I start out doing something and then I allow it to fall to the wayside. No matter what it is that I start; a new eating program, an exercise program, spending more time with You, I always starts well but I don’t continue in my pursuit.

I get discouraged, frustrated and sometime even bored so I stop doing what I need to do and go back to doing the very things I want to stop doing. Father, forgive me and help me!

Father I know Your word says that the diligent become rich, not just rich in money but rich in our knowledge of You, our character and our ability to withstand obstacles when they come against me while I doing Your will.

I know Your word says that I will get what I want if I don’t stop doing what is right and I continue to press forward. I also know that a sluggard, someone who is too lazy to continue to do what they’re supposed to do, will want things but won’t get anything. I am not a sluggard and will not live as a sluggard. I will get what I want because I will trust and believe Your word Lord and I will be diligent.

I thank You Lord because the Holy Spirit in me will press me towards diligence! In Jesus name I pray. Amen!

God’s Promise for Today

God can restore - Joel scripture

 

Jeremiah 33:19 – 25 and Matthew 1:17

God promises to restore the fortune of the off spring of those who are in the line of David. God is talking to Jeremiah about the people of Israel and is telling Jeremiah He, God, is going to return the people’s prosperity, which they lost when they went into captivity.

You and are in the line of David. Jesus is the heir of David that seats on the eternal throne and we are in Christ and He is in us. Therefore, the promise of restoration of prosperity is ours too. Not just financial prosperity but spiritual, mental, emotional and physical prosperity will be restored to us.

In addition to restoring our fortune, God will also have mercy on us. Now ain’t that good news!

Prayer for Today 09-03-2015

If you are serious about allowing God’s word to cleanse, renew and revive you then you need to commit to spending time in His word. At the * fill in how much time you are willing to commit to reading the Bible. Make it realistic!

If you don’t read your Bible on a regular basis, start with something easy like 15 minutes a day or a chapter a day. If you’re not accustomed to reading the Bible, I suggest you start with the New Testament. Start with either the gospel of Matthew or John.

Make sure you have a Bible you understand. If you’re like me and the King James Version (KJV) isn’t your thing, it’s okay. There are a ton of versions out there you can use. If you’re not sure what version is right for you, email me.

If you read your bible regularity add some time to study your Bible. That’s right, there is a difference between reading and studying. If you need some suggestions for the type of study material you need, just email me.

 

Prayer for Today

 

September 3, 2015

Heavenly Father, yesterday I prayer for a spiritual refreshing; a revival of the heart. It wasn’t just idols words, but a cry for help. There is so much going on and I feel overwhelmed by it all. I know I have my peace in You but I don’t feel peaceful. I know You have given me unmerited favor, but I look at my bills, my family and the world in general and I don’t feel like I’m being treated with favor.

 

Father, help me to operate in the truth of Your word and not the lies of the world system. Your word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path. Your word will lead me and guide me on the correct path for my life. Your word is my road-map to life. Forgive me for not spending time in Your word.

 

Today I commit to spending *_______________________________________ in Your word daily. Speak to me. Speak Your truth to me so that I may be clean, renewed and revived by You and for Your service. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Prayer for Today

Two faced woman

September 2, 2015

Father God, forgive us for being multiple faced. Too often when we, Your children, are with one group of people, who believe something this is against Your word, we say we agree with them. Then, when we’re with another group, we say we agree with them. Yet when we’re at our houses of worship, we say we agree with Your word even though none of the groups are saying the same thing.

Sometimes we get to the point we feel almost spiritually schizophrenic because we refuse to stand on the truth of Your word. We operate with the weight of lies on our tongues and with deceit in our hearts but still say we are Your children; a royal priesthood selected by You for Your service. Forgive us!

Lord, forgive us for being double minded. We say one thing with our mouths but believe something else in our hearts. We say You are the author of our faith and then we turn around and come up with our own plan without consulting You and waiting for You to answer.

Father, forgive us for quoting Your word but then being too fearful to follow Your word. Your word says the power of life and death is in our tongues. We keep speaking death over our lives and then we can’t figure out why we are spiritually, mentally, emotionally, financially and physically dying.

Our Lord and our God, we need a spiritual refreshing; a heart revival. Please Lord, revive us again!  Lord we need You! In Jesus name we pray. Amen!
