September 27: A Declaration for the Weather

Almighty Father, we thank You for being so loving and caring. Thank You for the Earth and all of its bountiful land. Thank You for the recent rain that we have received.  Thank You for the authority You have given us in the Name of Jesus to speak to weather conditions.  We praise You Lord, for You have heard our cry for mercy. You are our strength and shield. We will trust You with all our hearts. You help us and our hearts are filled with joy. We are bursting with songs of thanksgiving!

Today, using the power and authority Jesus Christ has given you, go outside and speak to the weather as you continue praying this prayer:

_________________________________________________________________________

Eternal Father, the earth and all its natural wonders are in You hands. You are the Creator and source of all life, and we trust You to stabilize our weather conditions. Lord, Your Word tells us that “he who believes in Me, the works I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to the Father.” So we speak to the weather conditions that are causing distress and disaster, and command them to go, in Jesus’ Name!  We command the heavens to release an abundance of rain in all the counties that have received lower than expected rainfall levels. We declare that our soil will be enriched with moisture, producing nutrient food for our livestock to feed upon and for crops to increase in growth.  We decree that all hurricane-producing elements  are rendered inactive during this season. We decree that tropical storms, floods, storm surges, tornadoes, wildfires, or any other destructive weather conditions will not ravage our lands. We expect peace to rule over our atmosphere.

Holy Spirit, please  help all  families through any hardship they have endured due to severe weather conditions. Give them favor with our state legislators so that they can receive the help they need. Help them to increase in faith and in wisdom. Help us, as children of God, to be faithful in praying for the weather. Let us always trust in the Lord’s promise to do anything we ask for in His Name.

Faithful Father, forgive our l acts of sinfulness that have caused us to reap destructive weather conditions. Forgive us for reacting to weather challenges with fear and unbelief. Forgive us for being irresponsible and unfaithful with our environment. Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed).  Holy Spirit, remind us of all 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.)

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

O Lord, the God of our ancestor Israel, may You be praised forever and ever! Yours, O Lord, is the greatness, the power, the glory, the victory, and the majesty. Everything in the heavens and on earth is Yours, O Lord, and this is Your Kingdom. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

February 28: A Prayer Regarding Unpleasant Work Environments

Glorious Father, we thank You for the blessing of employment.  Thank You for Your favor that surrounds Your children like a shield.  Thank You for Your goodness and mercy which follow closely behind us.  Lord, Your Kingdom is an everlasting kingdom. You rule throughout all generations.  You always keep Your promises; You are gracious in all that You do.  You help the fallen and lift those bent beneath their loads.  The eyes of all look to You in hope; You give them their food as they need it.  When You open Your hand, You satisfy the hunger and thirst of every living thing.  We bless and praise Your holy Name!

Almighty Father, we declare that Your Word will be operative in the lives of our Church Family members who work in unpleasant environments.  We confess that as they commit their works to You, their plans will succeed. Holy Spirit, we declare that our Church Family members who work in unpleasant environments will yield to Your leading and guidance so that they will be empowered to be light in the midst of their dark work environment. They are peacemakers in contentious situations so they will be blessed. Lord, we confess that they will walk uprightly and do what is right so no good thing will be withheld from them. We decree that as employers treat their employees and customers with dignity, fairness and respect; they will be blessed as they endure persecution for doing what is right.

 

Holy Spirit, I will declare the following scriptural blessing for my employer:

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Holy Spirit, please fill our Church Family members who work in unpleasant environments with Your wisdom, understanding, counsel, and power.  Give them dreams and visions that exceed their expectations and provide them with the resources they need to successfully accomplish Your purpose(s) for them.  As they perform their assigned tasks, help them to always work as unto You. Holy Spirit, help them to be peacemakers in their work environment and to not participate in any negative conversations or behaviors.  Father, help their supervisors and managers to communicate and write down the mission, vision and job descriptions and make them plain to their employees so that they can implement it.  Help our Church Family members to not grow weary while doing well at their jobs and remind them that they will reap a harvest of blessings if they do not give up.

 

Merciful Father, forgive the employees and employers who work in unpleasant environments for all acts of sinfulness.  Forgive those who have not been diligent in seeking Your guidance and leadership in their work places.  Forgive those who do not trust in You, but lean to their own understanding.  Forgive those who have compromised Your Word in order to make a profit.  Forgive those employers who have not treated their employees and customers fairly.  Forgive those who have not properly taken care of or shown respect for one another.  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.

 

Eternal King, You are the everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth.  You never grow weak or weary.  No one can measure the depths of Your understanding.    In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

A Prayer of Appreciation for the Beauty of God’s Creation

A Prayer of Appreciation for the Beauty of God’s Creation

Scripture Reading:

Psalm 148, Psalm 19:1-6

Reflections of the Heart:

“Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.” ~ John Muir

Scriptural Prayer:

Precious Father, thank You for allowing us to benefit from the beauty of all that Your hand has created. Thank You for our seas, forests, and skies. Thank You for all the beautiful and fragrant plants, and for the power and wonder of every animal. Thank You for the seasons and the rains that keep our earth reproducing. We will wake the dawn with our song. O Lord, our Lord, Your majestic Name fills the earth! Your glory is higher than the heavens. When we look at the night sky and see the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars you set in place; what are mortals that You should think about them, human beings that You should care for them? The highest heavens and the earth and everything in it all belong to You. We are blessed to be the recipients of all the beauty that surrounds us and testifies of Your awesome glory. We will sing to You as long as we live. We will praise You until our last breath! May all our thoughts be pleasing to You, for we rejoice in You, Father.

Holy Father, we, the Body of Christ, decree that You have made us only a little lower than Yourself and crowned us with glory and honor. You have given us charge of everything You made. All things – flocks and herds, wild animals, birds, fish, and everything that swims in the ocean – is under our authority. But, we will not boast in our authority, but in the fact that our names are registered in heaven. We confess that we will not defile the land that You have given us, but we will guard against wasting our natural resources. Lord, we will adopt better, cleaner practices and teach them to our children so that we can bless the earth for future generations. We declare that we will obey the laws of the land when we enjoy the outdoors, and we will not fail to give You glory for the beauty of all that You’ve created. It is our honor and privilege to care for all the creatures of the earth and we will respect and value all that Your hand has made.

Take a moment to reflect on all that you love about nature and praise God for it right now:

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Holy Spirit, keep us always aware of how we treat the Father’s creation. Help us to find the amazement we once had as children when we look at the awesome beauty of our world. Show us, once again, the simple joys of walking barefoot on a sandy beach, playing in the rain, and touching the cool earth with our hands. Remind us to share these joys with our children and to teach them to value all that the Father has made so that generations to come can benefit from these things, too. Help us to make the most of opportunities to experience sanctified times of solitude while enjoying the peacefulness of nature. Help us to keep the Lord’s commandments to preserve the earth and care for all that is in it. Teach us to regularly do our part to respect and protect all living creatures as an act of love and gratitude to our Heavenly Father.

Father God, forgive us for our sins against nature. Forgive us when we flippantly complain about the weather. Forgive us for being lazy and refusing to participate in recycling and conservation efforts. Forgive us for being critical of those who have been appointed to lead the charge in promoting a return to conservatory practices. Forgive us for overlooking and trampling underfoot even the most delicate flower. Forgive us for failing to teach our children the importance of showing appreciation and giving thanks for everything thing the earth offers to sustain us. Forgive us for borrowing from their future with our selfish greed.  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.)

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

Sovereign Lord, You made the earth by the power of Your Word and preserve it by Your Wisdom.  With Your own understanding You stretched out the heavens.  When You speak in the thunder, You announce that the heavens are filled with water.  You cause the clouds to rise over the earth.  You send the lightning with the rain and release the wind from Your storehouses.  Holy, holy, holy are You the Lord of Heaven’s Armies; the whole earth is filled with Your glory!  In Jesus Name, Amen.
