Daily Devotional – 1/21/19 “Let us pray!”

Our Father in Heaven,

Your name is Holy on my tongue as I come petitioning your throne. God, give us, this day, daily bread that sustains us, strength that carries us and obedience that shall loose us from the hand of enemy. God, I thank you for waking me up with a stable mind, eyes that see, mouth that speak, activity of my body, a warm home, food, clothes, shoes, transportation, for family and friends, a job and for things being as well as they are. God, I thank you for never forgetting me even when I forsake you. Now God, as I pray for your people; forgive me of anything I’ve said or done that’s not like you. Increase in me that my prayer reaches your ears and by faith it’s already being done. For today, I come for healing of arthritis, migraine headaches, vertigo, high blood pressure, heart disease, breast cancer, prostate cancer, leukemia, colon cancer, strokes, heart attacks, lupus, fibromyalgia, sickle-cell, kidney disease, liver disease, sinus problems, flu, clogged arteries, multiple sclerosis, ailments and diseases. God, deliver the broken-hearted, broken-spirited, low self-esteem, depressed and suicidal.

God, the government may be shut down but Heaven is still open and your word says, if I ask in faith, it shall be so I come asking for provision for all those affected. Increase God so they shall not be hunger, their gas tank never empty, bills are covered and their faith never waivers. For those who have poured out to help those in need, pay them back in increase. Then God, don’t stop there because I need you to bind the hands, stifle the tongue and heal the heart of the bully so they no longer hurt others. For the abuser, user and manipulator; snatch them out of their sin so they never hurt again. For the abused, avenge them God because your wrath is greater than ours. For the addicted, give them a heart to want to be delivered. For the hopeless, restore hope. For the downtrodden, pick them up and steady their walk. For the grieving, comfort. For those you’ve ordained to shepherd your people, give strength to stand in the midst of spiritual storms and chaos for it is your will that shall be done, not ours. And God, if it’s ours to endure, give us strength to withstand. If we have to go through the darkness, give us night-time vision and if we have to suffer the storm, cover us until you say it’s finished. Hear now, God this prayer as I humbly submit it to you. Amen.

“If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:13-14

Daily Devotional – 10/20/16 “Can I pray for you?”

can-i-pray-for-youOur Father in Heaven whose name is the Holy of Holy.As I come petitioning your throne, I pause to say thank you. Not for one thing, exactly but for everything specifically. Oh God, your people are in need so I come asking you to send a particular blessing to the person reading this. Grant them the request they’ve been crying out for, the answer they’ve been searching for and the peace they’ve been needing. I know you’re a merciful God that can heal, deliver and set free so I ask you to show up, in the midst of their circumstance and do it. For that mother whose still grieving, comfort. The daddy who can’t seem to make it, provide. The sister on the verge of suicide, block it. The brother at the end of his rope, extend it. God, be the mind regulator, the heart fixer, the heavy load carrier, the food when they’re hungry, water when they’re thirsty, joy in a time of trouble, bridge over their troubled waters and a way out of darkness. God, even if they have to suffer, in this season, give them strength to sustain until it’s over. Even if they have to suffer, now, give them what they need to endure because God, someone is fighting a battle and it’s not even theirs. Somebody else is on the edge of give up but has yet to give it over to you. And someone is looking at a negative bank account and still has another week to go.

But today, I declare that nothing shall by any means destroy your children. God, by the power you’ve invested in me, I decree that chains are being destroyed as they read. Doors of bondage are being opened, now, and your child is about to walk free. Suicide, you won’t win. Depression, you can’t win because today, I am crying loud and sparing not the ears of the enemy. God, today, I am crying loud and sparing not the feelings of the enemy, for the freedom of your people. Today, I’m claiming victory for those who can’t for themselves. Do it for her God. Do it for him God. Do it for us God! Blow our minds and do what we need. God, I don’t need the details, I just need the deliverance. Thank you in advance because I believe that it’s being done. You gave me power and so I declare it so! In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost, it shall be!
