Daily Devotional – 4/11/18 “And so it shall be …”

Our Father in Heaven, hallowed be your name, let your kingdom come so your will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us today, daily bread and forgive us of our sins as we forgive others. God, don’t allow us to be overtaken by temptation and deliver us from evil because we will live and not die. This is why, oh God, I petition you to hear this prayer because I have need to ask of you today. Not for me, Master but for that mother. Not for me, Jehovah, but for that father. Not for me, El Shaddai, but for my sisters and my brothers. God, they stand in need of your touch for we know your touch can make everything alright. They have need of your hands because in your hands is peace. God, I am not asking you to remove the pain but give them power to press until you say it’s pleased. I’m not asking you to stop the suffering but give strength until their sorrow is satisfied. I’m not asking you to stop their tears but comfort until you wipe them away. God, I’m not even asking you to remove the darkness but will you give them night-time vision until morning shows up. And while I have your ear, I just want to thank you. Thank you for the miracles that will be manifested. Thank you for the testimonies that will be told. Thank you for the healings, the deliverances, the marriages, the babies and for the financial blessings. Thank you for the seeds that are being sown, may they reap harvests, doubled in size. Thank you, in advance, for the cancers that are about to go into remission and the organs that will show up for transplant. Thank you oh God for it shall be, not just by my faith but connected with the faith of all those who stand in agreement. It is so, by the blood of our crucified Savior. It is so. Amen.

Our Father, whose name is Holy and worthy to be praised; I come petitioning your throne today, thanking you for everything. God, I know sometimes we aren’t worthy of asking yet you still provide; you still forgive us and still bless us in spite of and for that I say thank you. Thank you for loving us even when we are too selfish to love others. Thank you for covering us even in the midst of our mess. Thank you God for paying a debt that we’d never be able to repay. Now, as I come before you; I come not only for me but for that mother who doesn’t think you’re hearing her prayer; for that daddy whose been away from you too long and afraid to call your name, for that sister who’s in pain and can’t get a word out, for that brother who’s struggling just to live, for that pastor who feels like he/she is doing what they can and it’s still not working and for the person who’s contemplating suicide because it hurts too much to live. God, I come asking that your will for us on Earth be done as it is in Heaven. I come asking you to give us today, the daily bread we need to strengthen our weak places. Then, oh God forgive us. Forgive us for the daily sins that keeps us from being like you. Forgive us for the faults we so blindly hold on too. Forgive us for the hate that we’ve carried for years and forgive us for the debt that is consuming our lives. Forgive us, Father. And don’t allow us to fall into temptation, for you are our shield of protection. Deliver us from the hands, mouths and arms of the evil ones who have us trapped by fear and lies. Set us free from the things that keep us from you. Destroy chains of circumstances, bondage of burdens, handcuffs of hatred, shackles of self-doubt and governing generational curses. Cast out sickness and disease, sexual and spousal abuse and addictions. You said, if your people who are called by your name would humble themselves, seek your face and turn from their wicked ways; you’d come and see about us; well, here am I oh God, asking you to come and see about your children. Our cities need you, the killings have to stop, the police brutality and killings have to cease, the burying of our children; it has to end. We need you Father, for yours is the kingdom and you are the power and the glory; forever. Amen. Matthew 6:9-13
