June 4: A Declaration of Kingdom Faith

Eternal Father, we thank You for being in relationship with us.  Thank You for drawing us into Your holy family through the meritorious works of Jesus Christ.  Thank You for creating us to be kings of The King and lords of The Lord.  Thank You for sending us the Holy Spirit to lead and guide us on this faith walk.  The heavens proclaim Your glory and the skies display Your craftsmanship.  Lord, we will praise You with our whole hearts.  We will tell of all the marvelous things You have done.  We will be filled with joy because of You.  We will sing praises to Your Name, O Most High. 

Righteous Father, as citizens of Your Kingdom, we are righteous people who live by faith.  We declare that we will trust in You with all of our hearts and not depend on our own understanding.  We will seek Your will in all that we do and in every situation, we will trust that You will show us which path to take.  We will strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up.  We will run with endurance the race that You have set before us; keeping our eyes on Jesus, the Champion, who initiates and perfects our faith. We confess that we will seek Your Kingdom above all else, and live righteously, and trust that You will give us everything that we need.  Father God, we know that You are not a man that You should lie, nor the son of man that You should repent.  So, we will stand on Your Word and put all of our faith and confidence in You.  We declare as Kingdom citizens that we will trust You with our finances, families, businesses, relationships and every other area of our lives.  We confess that our works will reflect the faith that we have in You, our Father. 

Holy Spirit, please help each member of the Body of Christ to relinquish control to You to lead their lives.  Help each member to transform the way they think by meditating on the Word, so that they will embrace and walk in their Kingdom authority and rights.  Help our parents and guardians to model and teach Kingdom faith to their children and youth.  Holy Spirit, please show us all those areas in our lives where our faith is faltering and reveal the tools that we need to increase our faith in those areas.  Lord, there are some who have had so many disappointments in life that they have a hard time walking by faith.  Please help them to get the help they need to process those disappointments and heal those internal wounds, so that they can begin to walk in their Kingdom authority.  

Write down those areas that the Holy Spirit shows you that you need to increase your faith.  Now, ask Him for a strategy to work on those areas:

Compassionate Father, please forgive us for not having complete faith in You at all times.  Forgive us for having more faith in ourselves, our jobs, our finances, our gifts and talents and other people than we do in You.  Forgive us for harboring dead faith.  Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed).  Holy Spirit, remind us all of those we need to forgive and help us to be quick to forgive.  As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive.  (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive.  As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).”  Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

Holy Spirit, help us all to not yield to temptation; but deliver us from the evil one.

Triumphant Lord, all glory belongs to You, who alone are God.  All glory, majesty, power and authority are Yours before all time and in the present and beyond all time!  In Jesus’ Name.  Amen.

May 21:A Declaration of Miracles

Heavenly Father, we thank You for the Body of Christ.  We thank You for manifesting Your mighty miracles throughout our congregation.  We thank You for salvation, which is the greatest miracle of all.  Thank You for blessing us with Your presence.  You are our God; we earnestly search for You.  Our souls thirst for You; our bodies long for You in this parched and weary land where there is no water.  Lord, we have seen You in Your sanctuary and gazed upon Your power and glory.  Your unfailing love is better than life itself; how we praise You!  We will praise You as long as we live; we will lift up our hands to You in prayer.  You are more satisfying than the richest feast and we will praise You with songs of joy.

 

Awesome Father, according to Your own will, You ministered with signs and wonders, various miracles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit.  Therefore, we expect miracles to manifest during all of our worship celebrations.  Lord Jesus, as You performed so many miracles during Your ministry, we rejoice that You said that we would do greater works than You did because You were going to the Father and were sending the Holy Spirit.  As a congregation, we confess that we will move to the “greater things.” Lord, just as You turned water into wine, spoke and healed the ruler’s daughter and the woman with the issue of blood, touched the casket and the dead man rose, called Lazarus from the dead, and cast the demons out of Legion; so we expect to have miraculous encounters with You in our public and private lives. We decree that Your marvelous works will follow the Body of Christ so that people will see Your glory in our lives and confess Jesus Christ, as their Lord and redeemer.

 

Father, I thank You for performing the following miracles in my personal life.  List them and begin to praise God:

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

Holy Spirit, have Your perfect way during our worship celebrations, children and youth worship celebrations, Bible study classes and ministry meetings so that miracles, signs and wonders can flow freely.  Stir up the gift of faith within each pastor, leader, member, ministry volunteer, and visitor to expect great manifestations of Your power, not only during the worship experience, but every day of their lives. Lord, allow us to have personal and direct access to Your glory so we will proclaim as the Samaritan woman, “Come and see a man who told me everything I ever did!”  Holy Spirit, empower us so that we are effective witnesses of Jesus Christ.

 

Merciful Father, forgive those people who have doubted Your Word and works.  Forgive those for operating in fear and unbelief. Forgive those who have not taken the time to say “thank you” for the miraculous works You have done in their lives.  Forgive all of us for not comprehending with all the saints the breadth, length, depth, height, and love of Christ which passes all understanding and knowledge.  Father, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed).  Holy Spirit, remind us all of those we need to forgive and help us to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive.  As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).”  Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

 

Holy Spirit, help us all not to yield to temptation; but deliver us from the evil one.

 

Sovereign Lord, You are Holy, Holy, Holy.  You are the God who is, who was, and who is to come.  You are the Almighty.  You are the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end.  You are the Eternal King, the Unseen One who will never die; You alone are God.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

May 3: A Prayer for Students Taking Final Exams

Majestic Father, we thank You for our students who are preparing for Final Exams. Thank You for crowning each of them with wisdom and honor. Thank You for the educators who have a genuine interest in seeing our children and youth succeed. O God, You are our God; we earnestly search for You.  Our souls thirst for You; our bodies long for You in this parched and weary land where there is no water.  We have seen You in Your sanctuary and gazed upon Your power and glory.  Your unfailing love is better than life itself; how we praise You!  We will praise You as long as we live.  We will lift up our hands to You in prayer.  You satisfy us more than the richest feast.  With songs of joy will we praise You.

Royal Father, we confess that our students are well versed in every area of learning; gifted with knowledge and good judgment. We declare that just as You anointed Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego with an unusual aptitude for understanding every aspect of literature and wisdom, that You will anoint our students to excel in their academics and to conquer their Final Exams. We decree that our students understand the value of knowledge; they understand that wisdom is more profitable than silver and her wages are better than gold.  We confess that they will not be anxious about these tests, but they will pray and tell You what they need. They will thank You for all that You have done for them; then they will experience Your peace which exceeds anything they can understand. We declare that our students can do everything through Christ, including excelling on these Final Exams, because You give them strength.  We expect that as they study and apply themselves to their academics, that Holy Spirit, You will bring all things to their remembrance when they sit down to begin their Final Exams.  We decree that our students are the head and not the tail; they will always be on top and will never be at the bottom academically.

Holy Spirit, please help our students to hunger and thirst after knowledge.  Help them to shed every false label, expectation and preconceived notion that society has placed upon them. Help them to see themselves as more than conquerors in every aspect of their lives. Holy Spirit, please help our parents and guardians to understand how important it is for them to have an active role in their child’s education. Show them how to partner with their student’s teachers to encourage and help their child to learn. Lead and guide our students to scholarship and grant opportunities to help pay for their educational expenses. Please open new revenue streams for those parents who are sending their children to college.

Loving Father, forgive the sins of our educators and students.  Forgive us, as parents and guardians, for being negligent in teaching our students to first reverence You which is the beginning of wisdom.  Forgive those of us for sacrificing our students to excessive television, video games, music and to the ways and customs of the world.  Forgive those for devaluing the worth of teachers and education.  Forgive us all for not being more insistent on quality education in our school systems.  Father, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed).  Holy Spirit, remind our students of those they need to forgive and help them to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive. As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).” Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

Holy Spirit, help our students to not yield to temptation; but deliver them from the evil one.

Awesome Lord, Your right hand is glorious in power.  Your right hand smashes the enemy.  In the greatness of Your majesty, You overthrow those who rise against You.  You unleash Your blazing fury; it consumes them like straw. Who is like You among the gods, glorious in holiness, awesome in splendor, performing great wonders?  You are God alone!  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

April 25: A Declaration of Joy

Omniscient Father, as the Body of Christ, we thank You for being our God.  We thank You for saving us through the sacrifice of Your Son, our Lord, Jesus Christ. We thank You for sending the Holy Spirit to instruct, guide, teach and comfort us. Thank You, Holy Spirit, for empowering us and filling our lives with joy. Hallel YAH!  Awesome Father, You are great and greatly to be praised. You are to be feared above all gods. The earth is Yours and everything in it; the world and all its people belong to You. You laid the earth’s foundation on the seas and built it on the ocean depths. Lord, Your works are wonderful. You are our help and shield.  In You, do our hearts rejoice because we trust in Your holy Name. Let Your unfailing love continue to surround us Lord, for our hope is in You alone.

Wonderful Father, we declare as the Body of Christ, that as we keep the Your commands and abide in Your love; Your joy will remain in us and our joy will overflow.  Today, we confess that we will count it all joy when we fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of our faith produces patience. We will let patience have its perfect work in us so that we may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.  Lord, we confess that instead of shame and dishonor; we will enjoy a double share of honor.  We boldly declare that in this land we possess a double portion of prosperity and everlasting joy is ours.

These are the three things that I am joyful for:

 

 

 

 

Righteous Father, we ask You to bless all members of the Body of Christ.  Holy Spirit, please instruct us in our relationships, ministries, careers and finances.  Make our hearts strong, blameless, and holy as we stand before God, our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all His holy people.  Remind us daily of the Word which tells us that a cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength.  Holy Spirit, please help each of us to develop a joyful disposition.  Help us all to enjoy life and laugh more.

Loving Father, forgive us for any acts of sinfulness, including strife, discord, jealousy, rivalries, gossip and any abuse of power.  Forgive us for at times not being joyful, being that Your joy is our strength.  Father, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed). Holy Spirit, remind us all of those we need to forgive and help us to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive.  As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).”  Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

Holy Spirit, help us all not to yield to temptation; but deliver us from the evil one.

Immortal Lord, You are the blessed and only Almighty God.  You are the King of kings, and the Lord of lords.  You alone can never die.  You live in light so brilliant that no human can approach You.  No human eye has ever seen You, nor ever will. To You belongs all honor and power forever and ever. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

April 20: A Declaration of Obedience

Our Father, we thank You for Your love and compassion. Thank You for keeping Your covenant with us throughout the ages.  Thank You for making us Your people. Lord, You are compassionate and merciful, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. Your unfailing love toward those who fear You is as great as the height of the heavens above the earth. Let the whole world fear You, Lord.  Let everyone stand in awe of You.  Almighty God, You are so awesome!  Father, You are great and most worthy of praise.  We will praise You at all times and constantly speak of Your praises.

 

Righteous Father, as the Body of Christ, we will obey Your commands, walk in Your ways, and fear You.  We confess that Your instructions are perfect, reviving our souls.  Your decrees are trustworthy, making wise the simple. Your commandments are right, bringing joy to our hearts. Your commands are clear, giving insight for living.  Revering You is pure, lasting forever.  Your laws are true and each one is fair. Father, Your Word is more desirable than gold, yes, even the finest gold.  Your Word is sweeter than honey dripping from the honeycomb. Your Word warns us and we expect great reward as we obey it. We declare that as we are willing and obedient to You, we will eat the good of the land. We will seek Your Kingdom above all else, and live righteously, and we know that You will give us everything we need.

 

Today, I will obey God, the Father, in the following areas:

 

 

 

 

Omnipotent Father, please let Your ears be attentive to our prayer.  Holy Spirit, show us individually and collectively where we are consistently missing the mark.  Help us to turn from our areas of disobedience and fully release our whole hearts to the leading of the Holy Spirit.  Remind us to continue to encourage each other and build each other up on a daily basis.

 

Compassionate Father, forgive us for sins of pride, rebellion, disobedience, selfishness, hatred, and idolatry.  Lord, forgive us for half-hearted worship. Forgive us for disrespecting Your Name and treating You irreverently. Forgive us where we have not glorified Your Name and Your Kingdom by our actions and lifestyles. Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed).  Holy Spirit, remind each of us of those we need to forgive and help us to be quick to forgive.  As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive.  As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).”  Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

 

Holy Spirit, help us all to not yield to temptation; but deliver us from the evil one.

 

Triumphant Lord, You are the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. You are the God who is, and who was, and who is still to come – the Almighty One, El Shaddai.  All honor and glory belongs to You, God, forever and ever! You are the eternal King, the unseen One who never dies; You alone are God. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
