God’s Promises

The sacrifice of the savior

God’s Promises

October 31, 2015

There is no greater, nor seemingly more difficult promise God could have made to us than the promise of a risen Savior. Really?  Someone is going to come back from the dead and save us from our sins? Seems highly suspect right?!

Yet, there it is, right there in Matthew 28:6, this unlikely, seemingly impossible promise is fulfilled; “’He is not here; He has risen, just as He said.”’

This one statement is the reason all of God’s promises have their “yes” and our “amen” in Jesus (II Corinthians 1:20). God fulfilled the most impossible, unlikely and improbably promise He had ever made through the resurrection of Jesus; our Savior forever.

As surely as God is faithful to His word, that’s how sure we should be about God fulfilling His promises to us. His promises of protection, provision, an abundant life and life everlasting all find their fulfillment in Jesus.

When we believe that God is able to do what He said and fulfill His promises to us, we simply say, “amen.”

Father, I pray for everyone reading, have read or will read this prayer. I pray that out of your abundance You will bless the out of the heavenly realm with manifested blessings in the earth, which will meet every need they have in their lives.

I pray that every promise from You, which has its “yes” and “amen” in Jesus, will be pour out on them until the blessings overflow from them to the people who know them.

I pray that no weapon formed against them shall prosper and every tongue that rises up against them will be shown to be in the wrong. For this is their vindication through Your Son, Jesus Christ, for Your children.

I pray they will experience every good and perfect gift that comes from above and that they experience them in abundance. In Jesus name I pray. Amen!

God is in the business of restoring lives

October 28, 2015

Father I feel like I have so much going on that I don’t have time to do anything!

I feel like I’m always busy but nothing in being accomplished. I feel like no matter how much I take off my to-do list, there is always 20 other things I don’t get done! It seems to never end and I’m exhausted, and frustrated by it all.

Sometimes I wish I could just run away were no one can find me and just sit still and quiet for a little while, just to get my wits about me.

Father, I need to run to You! I need to do like Jesus did and steal away by myself, and just sit and focus on You without other people around me trying to get my attention.

Lord, whether it is the early morning, late at night or during my lunch hour, help me to earmark time to be alone with You. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Plug into the power of prayer

October 26, 2015

Father, Your word says that You sent Your son Jesus to give us life and that we would have life more abundantly through Him. Too often I find myself living a life of lack of the things that really matter. I find myself living a life that lacks peace of mind, joy, contentment and peace. I find myself complaining about what I don’t have, what I didn’t get and what I can’t do, rather than thinking about and being grateful for what You’ve given me, allowed me to obtain and Your favor that rest on my life. Forgive me for taking for granted all the great and wonderful things You’ve made available to me that I don’t take advantage of on a regular basis.

Father, I will not just live, I will thrive and prosper beyond the normal. Not thriving and prosper in just material things, but thriving and prosper in the things that will make me a better person; a better child to my parents, a better parent to my children, a better husband or wife to my spouse and a better child to You.

I will prosper by reading Your word, praying to You on a regular basis, obeying Your word and being diligent in doing the things I know are right.

I will live above the fray of mediocrity. I will live with my mind on things I can do to help the world be a better place and with my mind steadfast on You. I will not live beneath my spiritual blessings, which You have provided for me through Christ Jesus. I will live in the overflow and outpouring of Your love. I will not live just getting by but I will live standing on Your promises to me, Your child. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Underserving but thank you Jesus

October 19, 2015

Father, I thank You for blessing me with all spiritual blessings in Christ Jesus.

Your Word says skillful and godly wisdom is in my house., which means my life, home and family are built on and through the understanding of Your word.  My home is made whole and it at peace through You. My home is established on a sound, solid and good foundation. By knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches — great priceless treasure: love, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, goodness, and joy.  Prosperity and welfare are in my house

Father in everything we do, we are working to take a righteous stand. Whatever You have given us to do, our family work at wholeheartedly, knowing that it’s for Your glory and not for men.

Father, we love each other with Your kind of love; sometimes we don’t show it, but we really do love each other and purpose to live in peace. Father, I give my home to Your charge. I entrust my house and the material gain, but most of all, the people who live in my home, into Your protection and care.

In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Christ in Me

October 14, 2015

Father, today I have decided to allow what You say about me to define me. I have allowed what other people say, what advertisers say and what others have done to me to define me, but NO MORE!

As of today, I will allow Your word to define who I am; who You say I really am. I claim my authentic self in Jesus name. Amen.

Anchor Holds

October 7, 2015

“When Darkness veils his lovely face, I rest on his unchanging grace. In every high and stormy gale, my anchor holds within the veil.” – Edward Mote “My Hope Is Built on Nothing Less”

This morning Lord I want to thank You for Your Son, my Savior, Jesus Christ, who is my Anchor in the midst of my storms, hardships, heartaches and difficult situations. He is my all and all.

Father, when I could be lost in the despair of the situation; the wars and rumors of wars that are always swirling around us, the mass murders that are taking place in our country because bureaucrats refuse to pass simply laws that will hold people accountable or the financial hardship so many people are going through right now, but Jesus holds me close in the midst of all the raging storms going on around me.

Lord I thank You for my Anchor, Who not only holds me close in the midst of the storm going on around me but, holds me close to Him when the storms of fear, doubt, unforgiveness, guilt, shame and discontent are raging in me. Jesus is the Anchor that holds me fast no matter what is going on in or around me. In Christ I am secure! I thank You and pray this prayer in Jesus name. Amen.

“But if the storms don’t cease and if the winds keep on blowing in my life. My soul has been anchored in the Lord.” – Douglass Miller “My Soul Has Been Anchored”

Jesus-Is-My-Rock

October 5, 2015

“My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus blood and righteousness. I dare not trust the sweetest frame but wholly lean on Jesus name. On Christ the solid Rock I stand. All other ground is sinking sand” – Edward Mote “My Hope Is Built on Nothing Less”

This morning Lord I want to thank You for Your Son, my Savior, Jesus Christ, who is my Rock and my Redeemer.

Father, when all could be lost I do not fret because I know Jesus is my firm foundation. Nothing can cause Him to be shaken; therefore, I will not be shaken. I am steadfast and immovable in Christ Jesus.

Lord I thank You for my The Solid Rock, who will cleft for me and allow me to hide myself in Him. When my enemies and my foes come for me, they have to go through my Rock, who is Jesus Christ and He is a power no foe can withstand. In Christ I am safe! I thank You and pray this prayer in Jesus name. Amen.

October 2, 2015

Father, today I prayer for the families, friends and loved ones of the victims, the gunmen and the survivors of the yesterday’s mass shooting in Oregon.

There are people who want to make political and religious statements about the shooting but I’m sure the families and friends of those affected by the incident don’t care why it happened, just that it happened and their lives will never be the same again.

Father, heal their hearts! Lord, helps us, as a nation, to do better in light of the loss of lives due to the violence in our streets, in our homes, at our schools and in our communities.

Father, help us find our way back to You! God, help us get back to “One nation under God.” Help us get back to “In God we trust.” From the halls of the White House and Congress to the hallways of every school in America, we need You. Help us Father God, I pray in Jesus name. Amen.

Prayer for Today

God is faithful

October 1, 2015

Father God, I often pray the part of the Lord’s Prayer that says, “Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven” without thinking about what I’m really saying. Today I am asking for Your will to be done in my life.

Father, You know what good, right and is perfect for me because every good and perfect gift comes from You. You know exactly what I need and when I need it. You know how to show Your strength, power and righteousness through my life. Today I commit to submitting to Your overarching authority over my life and I permit You to have Your perfect way in me.

Lord, when my flesh starts to scream because it is uncomfortable, comfort me by Your Holy Spirit. Father, I’ve been praying for (fill in whatever you’ve been praying for. Some examples: a closer walk with God, a healthier lifestyle, a mate, a change of heart, a financial blessing, your children, deliverance from past pains, etc.) ___________________________________________________ and I know the first step to moving forward in this is for Your will to be done in my life.

I will not listen to unwise council. I will keep my eyes steadfast and fix on You because You are the author, the perfecter and the finisher of my faith.

In Jesus name I pray.  Amen.
