October 2: A Declaration of Favor for The Prayer Institute

Great Father, we thank You for giving Pastors Kirbyjon and Suzette Caldwell the vision for The Prayer Institute. Thank You for the awesome platform it has given to prayer, as it is such a vital discipline for every believer. Thank You for the wonderful board members, staff and diligent volunteers You have assembled together to maintain the operations of The Prayer Institute. O Lord, when we think of Your goodness and boundless kindness toward The Prayer Institute, we cannot help but to erupt in high praise! Your awe-inspiring deeds will be on every tongue as we proclaim Your greatness. Everyone will share the story of Your wonderful goodness and sing with joy about Your righteousness. We worship You, Father. We take joy in being in Your presence.

Strong and Mighty Father, we decree that You are the source of hope for The Prayer Institute. Favor surrounds The Prayer Institute like a shield. We declare abundant blessings and favor upon the staff. We also declare Your abundant blessings and favor upon the Board of The Prayer Institute. We command doors of unprecedented opportunities to open for The Prayer Institute. We decree that as they serve Your people, Lord, their good deeds will shine out for all to see, causing people everywhere to give You praise. In faith, we expect You to expand the influence and reach of The Prayer Institute.  We believe that the Holy Spirit will ignite more and more people to desire a richer and more powerful prayer life, as The Prayer Institute goes forth in ministry. We decree that every need will be met according to Your riches in glory.

Holy Spirit, I will pray the following for The Prayer Institute:

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Holy Spirit, we ask that You draw The Prayer Institute’s staff and board members closer together in the spiritual unity that is only found in Jesus Christ. Let the same mind be in them that was also in Him. Help them to spot problems and issues quickly and to be spiritually wise and discerning as they seek to solve them. Remind them to take good care of themselves and to not neglect their own spiritual, emotional, and physical care. Keep them balanced in their public and private lives so they are efficient and effective in all that they do. Draw the right people to invest their time, talent, and finances. Protect The Prayer Institute from any plans the enemy may have to hinder the good works that they do. We ask that You flood them with faithful benefactors who will give to the services they provide to the Body of Christ and to the community.

Redeeming Father, please forgive the Board members, staff and volunteers of any sins they have committed. Forgive those who have been neglecting themselves and their families and not taking time to rest. Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that You have committed). Holy Spirit, remind The Prayer Institute’s staff and board members of all 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 the Board members, staff and volunteers of The Prayer Institute to not yield to temptation; but deliver them from the evil one.

Magnificent Lord, You are robed in majesty and armed with strength. The world stands firm and cannot be shaken. You are worthy, O Lord our God, to receive glory and honor and power. You created all things and they exist because You created what You pleased. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

August 6: A Prayer for Godly Friends for Our Children and Youth

Gracious God, thank You for loving us so much that You sent Jesus Christ to be our Lord, Savior and Friend. Thank You for creating the gift of friendship and blessing us with Godly relationships. Thank You for calling us Your friends.  We are honored to be Your friend.  Abba Father, Your unfailing love is better than life itself; how we praise You! We will praise You as long as we live, lifting up our hands to You in prayer. We will praise Your Name with singing, and we will honor You with thanksgiving.  We give thanks to You because You are near.  People everywhere will tell of Your wonderful deeds.

Heavenly Father, it is Your will that our children and youth develop and maintain Godly, healthy friendships.  Your Word declares that two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed.  If one falls, the other can reach out and help; but someone who falls alone is in real trouble.  We declare that our children and youth will have Godly friends who will seek first Your Kingdom above all else, and live righteously so that they will receive from You all that they need.  Their friends will love You, Lord, with all of their hearts, souls, minds and strength and they will love our children and youth as they love themselves.  We decree that the parents and guardians of our youth and children will model friendships that are wholesome and Godly so that they will understand what friendship really looks like. In Jesus’ Name, we cancel every toxic friendship and destroy the assignments of the devil against our children and youth.  We confess that our young people will not follow the advice of the wicked, stand around with sinners, or join in with mockers.

I will pray for the following children and youth to find and maintain healthy, Godly friendships:

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

Loving Father, some of our children and youth struggle when it comes to making friends.  Holy Spirit, please help them to walk in the love of Christ and draw Godly friends to themselves.  In their quest for friendship, help our children and youth to love themselves. Instruct our parents and guardians on how to help their child or youth to see themselves through the Father’s eyes.  Give them the words to be able to help their child or youth to understand how precious Your thoughts are towards them.  As they grow in self-esteem and self-worth, help them to grow in boldness and confidence in the way that they carry themselves so that they will attract Godly, positive people into their lives.  Help our children and youth to be kind, fair, and friendly.

 

Merciful Father, forgive our children and youth if they have intentionally isolated other students or made others to feel inferior.  Forgive them for succumbing to peer pressure in their desire to fit in with a certain group of people.  Forgive our parents and guardians for not teaching their children how to be good friends and affirming them in Your Word.  Forgive them if they have belittled or made light of their child or youth’s desire to have friends.  As for me, Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed).  Holy Spirit, remind our children and youth 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 children and youth to not yield to temptation; but deliver them from the evil one.

 

Glorious King, You are honored in Judah; Your Name is great in Israel. You are glorious and more majestic than the everlasting mountains.  You are the King of Glory; the Lord strong and mighty, the Lord invincible in battle!  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

April 17: A Declaration of Kingdom Financial Blessings

Heavenly Father, we thank You for Your eternal love and unmerited grace.  We thank You for Your love for us that never ceases and Your mercy which never comes to an end.  Your mercies are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.  Thank You, Father, for being our strength, our shield, our provider and our Savior. You are great and You do wondrous things.  You are God alone.  Lord, You are in Your Holy temple; You are on Your heavenly throne.  To You, O God do we give thanks.  Yes, to You do we give thanks.  We extol You, our God, O King; and we bless Your Name forever and ever.

Righteous Father, as Kingdom citizens, it is Your will that we excel in the area of our finances.  We recognize that the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil.  Therefore, we will earn, save, spend and invest money in obedience to Your perfect plan for our lives and our families.  We confess that as You bring financial blessings into our lives, we will remember that it is You who gives us the power to get wealth so that the covenant which You swore to our fathers will be established and we will be positioned as instruments to build Your Kingdom.  Father, we decree that all that we set our hands to do is blessed because You have commanded blessings on our storehouses, including savings, investments and retirement accounts.  Lord, as Your blessings overtake us, we will be able to lend money to many and not have to borrow from anyone.  We confess that as we bring our tithes and offerings into Your house, we are expecting You to pour out blessings that we will not have room to receive and You will rebuke the devourer for our sakes.  Lord, because we will be faithful stewards of Your financial blessings, we expect You to confirm Your Word and make us rulers over abundant wealth.

Holy Spirit, show me what I need to do so that I can be a better steward of the resources I have been blessed with:

 

 

 

 

Holy Spirit, we ask that You shift our focus from spending to saving and from consuming our income to building wealth.  Help the members of the Body of Christ to bind mercy and truth around our necks and write them on our hearts; causing us to have favor in Your sight and in the sight of man.   Lord, help us to study Your Word, to meditate on it day and night and observe to do the things written within it so that we may make our way prosperous and have good success.  Holy Spirit, help us to build business and personal relationships with other Christians.  Help us to begin to love people and use money, rather than loving money and using people.  We pray for a breaking of old mindsets and generational curses of poverty and lack within the families in the Body of Christ.

 

Forgiving Father, forgive us for our sins.  Forgive us for repeating patterns of financial failures such as living beyond our means and misusing credit cards.  Forgive those in the Body of Christ and our communities for our heavy dependence on payday loan outlets and pawn shops.  Forgive us for failing to develop financial plans that include debt reduction, savings and investments.  Father, forgive us for walking by sight, rather than walking in faith. Forgive many of us for entertaining thoughts that we are supposed to have the most of the worst and the least of the best.  Forgive those in our congregation who have refused to make court-ordered child support payments.  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.  (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.

 

Yours, Almighty God, is the power and the glory.  Yours, O Lord, is the victory and the majesty.  All that is in heaven and earth is Yours.  Yours is the Kingdom, O Lord, and You are exalted as head over all.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Reflections of the Heart:

“Let those who favor my righteous cause and have pleasure in my uprightness shout for joy and be glad and say continually, let the Lord be magnified, who takes pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.” Psalm 35:27

Scriptural Prayer:

 

Father, You are great and You do wondrous things.  You are God alone.  Lord, You are in Your Holy temple; You are on Your heavenly throne.  To You, O God, do we give thanks.  Yes, to You do we give thanks.  We thank You for Your eternal love and unmerited grace.  We thank You for Your love for us that never ceases and Your mercy which never comes to an end.  Your mercies are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.  Thank You, Father, for being our strength, our shield, our provider and our Savior.  We extol You, our God, O King; and we bless Your Name forever and ever.

Father, it is Your will that we excel in the area of our finances.  As a Church Family , we recognize that the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil.  Therefore, we will earn, save, spend and invest money in obedience to Your perfect plan for our lives and our families.  We confess that as You bring financial blessings into our lives, we will remember that it is You who gives us the power to get wealth so that the covenant which You swore to our fathers will be established and we will be positioned as instruments to build Your kingdom.  Father, we confess that all that we set our hands to do is blessed because You have commanded blessings on our storehouses, including savings, investments and retirement accounts.  Lord, we declare that as Your blessings overtake us, we will be able to lend money to many and not have to borrow from anyone.  We confess that as we bring the tithes into Your house, we are expecting You to pour out blessings that we will not have room to receive and to rebuke the devourer for our sakes.  Lord, because we will be faithful stewards of Your financial blessings, we expect You to confirm Your word and make us rulers over abundant wealth.  We call forth a release of a new anointing of entrepreneurship, new ideas and new businesses upon our lives.

Today, I commit to making the following changes in order to maximize my financial future in the Lord:

_______________________________________________________________________________________________

Lead us not into temptation; but, deliver us from the evil one.

Yours, God, is the power and the glory.  Yours, O Lord, is the victory and the majesty.  All that is in heaven and earth is Yours.  Yours is the kingdom, O Lord, and You are exalted as head over all.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

A Prayer for the Economic Crisis in the United States of America

A Prayer for the Economic Crisis in the United States of America

Scripture Reading:

Psalm 84, Deuteronomy 8

 

Reflections of the Heart:

“The eyes of the Lord watch over those who do right; His ears are open to their cries for help.”  Psalm 34:15

Scriptural Prayer:

Heavenly Father, You are God and Your Word is true.  We exalt You, our God and King.  We will praise Your Name forever and ever.  Every day we will praise You. You are most worthy of praise.  You are our source, and we place our trust in You.  Holy and Righteous is Your Name.  You are a great God and a great King above other gods.  You are our God; we are Your people who You watch over.  We are the flock under Your care.  Thank You for blessing the United States of America throughout the years.  Thank You, Father, for blessing the economic infrastructure of our nation.  Thank You for surrounding our nation with Your favor, grace and mercy during this time of economic crisis.

In Jesus’ Name, we speak to the United States economy and all interrelated global economies and command “peace, be still” within and among all the economic systems.  We stand in the authority given to us and speak to the economic infrastructure of our nation and we command the United States credit markets to become calm and fluid.  We also command all related financial intermediaries around the world to become calm and fluid.  We command restoration to consumer and investor confidence.  We command the banking industry to stabilize and the enterprise values of U.S. corporations to rebound supernaturally, now!  As a result, we decree that DOW JONES, NASDAQ and the major financial exchange networks around the world will rebound and thrive.  We command a balanced solution to the crisis involving the United States automakers.  We command the housing industry to stabilize and home values to be restored to levels that will reflect God’s biblical promises for this country.  We rebuke the spirits of conspicuous consumption, fear, uncertainty and inefficiency.  In Jesus’ Name, we boldly proclaim foreclosures to cease, job losses to reverse, and the stock market decline to bottom out.  We speak normalcy and balanced prosperity back into our economic system.

Eternal Father, we ask that You would pour out Your wisdom, discernment and divine understanding into Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke, Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, Barney Frank of the House Committee on Financial Services and all local, state and national economic and government leaders.  Reveal creative ideas and effective methods to them that will decrease our national deficit while continuing to provide the necessary standards, services and benefits to the American people. Holy Spirit, stir the hearts of the Body of Christ to stand and boldly proclaim Your Word concerning the current global and U.S. economic predicament.  Please restore the confidence of the American people in You, as our source and supply, and remove any thoughts of fear or dismay.

Lord, we repent on behalf of our nation for our many sins.  Forgive us for ageism, sexism, racism and nepotism.  Forgive us for greed, arrogance, selfishness, imperialism and oppression.  Please forgive the financial intermediaries for charging more than they should have charged for packaging and securitizing the mortgages.  Forgive CEO’s for accepting extraordinary compensation while leaving Americans empty-handed.  Forgive consumers who borrowed more money than they could pay back.  Forgive our nation for financial irresponsibility and carelessness.  Holy Spirit, show our leaders who they need to forgive; and help them to forgive.

As a nation, lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from the evil one.

 

Lord, there is none like You.  You are great and Your Name is full of power.  Who would not fear You, O King of the nations?  That title belongs to You, alone!  Among all the wise people of the earth and in all the kingdoms of the world, there is no one like You.  You are the King of glory.  You are the Lord of Heaven’s Armies.  You are worthy, Lord our God, to receive glory, honor and power.  You created all things and they exist because You created what You pleased.

Scripture References for the Written Text:   Psalm 145:1-2, Psalm 95:3, Psalm 100:3, Psalm 5:12, Psalm 34:17, Mark 4:39, James 1:5, Isaiah 41:10, Psalm 84:12, Matthew 6:13, Jeremiah 10:6-7, Psalm 24:10, Revelation 4:11
