Failure success future

April 27, 2015

Father, when we realize how far we’ve allowed ourselves to fall into the pit falls of the world system, we feel hurt and disappointed with ourselves. Not only have we fallen into the financial pitfall of the world system but also the mental, emotion, physical and spiritual pitfalls. Thank You Lord for allowing us to go into the pits, but not allowing us to stay there!

Father, just like You were with Joseph when he went into the pit, You have been with us. You were with Joseph every step of the way during his time in Potiphar’s home, while he was in prison and when he served in the court of Pharaoh; and You have been with, are still with and will continue to be with us.

Father, You didn’t leave Joseph in the pit falls of his life and You won’t leave us in our pitfalls. You brought Joseph out of his pits more powerful than when he went in to the pits and You will do the same thing for us if we have the character of Joseph.

Father You blessed Joseph because he operated in his gifts, no matter the circumstances he was facing. He was always honorable to his masters/bosses no matter how they treated him. Joseph always He handled the business affairs that were given to him with knowledge and truth and he always gave You, Lord God, the glory.

Father, while I am climbing out of the pit falls of the world system, help me to have the character of Joseph in all aspects of my life. It is in Jesus name I pray and say Amen.

Prayer for Today

February 9, 2015

Father God, you alone are God!  There is no other god besides you. You alone created the heavens and the earth. You alone called forth light and separated light from darkness. You parted the water of the sky from the water of the earth. No one could have done these mighty acts except you!

You Lord God brought everything into being that have or had life. You are the only one who calls forth both destruction and deliverance and they must respond to your call. There is not another God on earth, in the heavens or under the earth. You alone are God!

We, your children, have allowed the world system to teach us to set up things in the earthly realm as our idols. Things made of clay, steel, plastic and wood. Things such as houses, home fixtures, clothes, cars, jobs, credit and money have become idols.

People such as our children, our spouses, our parents, our church leaders and our supervisors have become idols to some of us. We are more concerned about getting their approval than we are concerned about obeying your word.

Some of us have set up intangible things as idols; earthly power, authority and fame. We can’t see or touch these things, but we think we know them when we see them.

Forgive us! It was not our intent to place another God before you. Deliver us from the evil of this world and cleanse our hearts. In Jesus name. Amen.
