May 8: A Prayer for Our Mothers

Heavenly Father, we thank You for blessing our mothers. We declare our thanks and devotion to You for Your goodness and loving kindness towards them.  We thank You for creating each of them in Your image. Thank You for Your plans for good and not for disaster, to give them a future and a hope.  Lord, You are our God and there is none other, we worship You in the beauty of Your Holiness.  You are the true and living God to whom all honor and glory belongs.  We will love You, Lord our strength.  You are our rock, our fortress and our deliverer.  You are our God, our strength in whom we will trust.

Wonderful Father, we declare that our mothers are more than conquerors through Christ Jesus. We confess with holy boldness that our mothers will give their children the Word of God, daily structure, love, discipline, encouragement, healthy lifestyle practices and a good education.  As mothers, they will train up their children in the way they should go and when they are old they will not depart from it.  We confess that our mothers will not copy the behavior and customs of this world, but they are transformed by the Holy Spirit to do what is good and pleasing and perfect in Your sight.  We decree that the fruit of love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control is operable in their lives.  The light of Jesus is reflected in their actions.  We confess that they are virtuous women and their price is far above rubies.

I will pray the following for a mother this month:

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Our Father, we ask You to fill our mothers with the knowledge of Your Word in all wisdom and spiritual understanding. Please order their days so that their daily activities are balanced and fruitful.  Make the crooked places in their lives straight and perfect those things that concern them.  Teach our mothers to develop the individual spiritual gifts and talents of their children.  Restore the broken or struggling relationships between mothers and children. Increase Your love in those mother/child(ren) relationships that are doing well.  Holy Spirit, comfort those who have experienced the death of their mother and equip us as the Body of Christ to provide the support that they may need.
Loving Father, forgive our mothers for sins, such as jealousy, gossip, malice, back biting, bitterness and unforgiveness (list any additional sins).  Forgive them for not trusting You with their lives.  Forgive those for quick tempers and lack of patience. Forgive those mothers who are not raising their children according to Your Word.  Forgive those who allow the television, radio, video games, music, older siblings and activities to raise their children. Forgive those mothers for negative words and deeds against their children’s father.  Forgive those who are still holding on to past hurts and offenses and refuse to let them go. As for me, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed).  Holy Spirit, remind our mothers 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 mothers to not yield to temptation; but deliver them from the evil one.

All glory belongs to You, the only God and Savior through Jesus Christ our Lord.  All glory, majesty, power, and authority are Yours before all time, and in the present, and beyond all time!  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

April 30: 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 24: A Declaration of Kingdom Financial Giving

Honorable Father, we thank You for the Spring Feasts. Thank You for this special time to commune with You.  Thank You for providing for our families so that we can bring an offering back to You.  Lord, the heavens proclaim Your glory and the skies display Your craftsmanship. Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make Your presence known.  We praise You, our Rock.  Be exalted, the God of our salvation!   We will praise You among the nations and sing praises to Your Name!  Because of You, Lord, we are filled with laughter, and we sing for joy.  Others have said what amazing things the Lord has done for them.  Yes, You, Lord, have done amazing things for our Church Family!   What joy we have experienced with You!

Loving Father, You have set the appointed times for us to celebrate and worship You in the spring.  As a part of the celebration, Your Word instructs us to bring offerings as a sign of our love and devotion to You.  As a Church Family, we will obey Your Word and we look forward to giving of our best.  We will give with cheerful hearts to You during the Spring Feasts.  As we give, we trust that according to Your Word, You will generously provide all that we need.  Then, we will always have everything we need and have plenty left over to share with others.  We confess that we will trust You with our finances and will give as we are led by the Holy Spirit.

Holy Spirit, my Unleavened Bread and Firstfruits offerings will be:

 

 

 

 

Holy Spirit, please help us to yield our hearts to You as You lead and direct us in our giving during the Spring Feasts.  Help us to be willing and generous in our giving and not hesitant or stingy.  Lord, You said that if we honored Your feasts, You would increase our harvest.  Father, touch the financial seeds that we have planted and cause them to grow. Bless us with increase so that we will have a tremendous offering to give to You during this special time.  Increase our faith to trust You for unseen and miraculous financial blessings.  For those in need of financial resurrection, bless their finances.  Father, bless those who do not have anything to give with a miraculous offering.  Help our Church Family to honor You with disciplined financial stewardship.    Father, show us Your glory as we give our offerings during the Spring Feasts and please accept them as a sign of our love and devotion to You.

Loving Father, forgive us when we have not brought our tithes and offerings to You.  Forgive our hesitancy when we are asked to give to You.  Forgive those who have created financial situations in their lives that are so desperately in need of repair that they are not positioned to give freely during the feasts.  Forgive all of us for any selfishness or greed.  Remind us of those that we owe so that we may repay our debts.  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 to not yield to temptation; but deliver us from the evil one.

Lord God, the Almighty, You are the one who is and who always was.  You have assumed Your great power and have begun to reign.  All glory belongs to You, who alone is God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord.  All glory, majesty, power, and authority are Yours before all time, in the present, and beyond all time!  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

April 1: A Prayer of Thanksgiving for Jesus Christ

Our Father God, we thank You for loving us so much that You gave Your one and only Son, Jesus Christ, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. We love and adore You. Lord Jesus, thank You for sacrificing Your life on the cross for our sins.  Because of You, we can now stand before You as pure, holy, and justified. We also thank You for sending the Holy Spirit, our Comforter.  Holy Spirit, we thank You for filling us with love, fruit, gifts and power.  We exalt You, our God and King. We praise Your Name forever and ever.

Jesus, our Bread of Life, we are grateful that You have given us peace with God. Because of Your obedience and sacrifice there is no longer a void between us and our Heavenly Father. Lord, You were wounded for our transgressions. You were bruised for our iniquities. The chastisement of our peace was upon You, and by Your stripes we are healed. Your Name is above all other names. At Your Name every knee will bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue will confess that You are Lord. Thank You for redeeming us and placing the Kingdom of God within us. Hallel YAH!

What changes have occurred in your life since Jesus Christ has become your personal Lord and Savior:

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Holy Spirit, help us to stay focused on Kingdom business instead of worldly desires, and selfish cares and concerns. Help us to regard Jesus’ Name as holy. Help us to keep renewing our minds daily until the image of Christ is formed on the inside of us. Help us to show great reverence for the suffering, the shame, and the sacrifice of our Lord. And keep us humbled in knowing that were it not for Jesus Christ, we would have no hope at all.

Loving Father, forgive us for at times disregarding the sacrifice the Lord Jesus made to secure our freedom. Forgive us for taking unfair advantage of that freedom. Forgive those of us for failing to observe communion with You and with our families. Forgive us for making excuses for our disobedience in doing our part to fulfill the Great Commission.  Lord, forgive me for (list the 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 out loud, “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.

Your throne, O God, endures forever and ever. You rule with a scepter of justice. You are the Lord, our Redeemer and Creator, who made all things. You alone stretched out the heavens. You reign forever, executing judgment from Your throne. In Jesus’ Name, Amen!

March 28: A Prayer for Health Care in the United States

Glorious Father, we thank You for the blood of Jesus which covers us and protects us from harm, including disease. Thank You for blessing our nation with the best medical care in the world. Thank You for being the Lord who heals!  Lord, we will sing of Your unfailing love forever!  Young and old will hear of Your faithfulness.  Your unfailing love will last forever.  Your faithfulness is as enduring as the heavens.  All of heaven will praise Your great wonders, myriads of angels will praise You for Your faithfulness.  Who in all of heaven can compare with You, Lord?  What mightiest angel is anything like You?  The highest angelic powers stand in awe of You.  You are far more awesome than all who surround Your throne!

 

Redeeming Father, we commit the American Health Care system to You and command justice to run down like water, and righteousness like a mighty stream for the American people.  We thank You for every health care professional and declare that they will seek Your wisdom and knowledge and always pursue excellence in their chosen fields. They will be dedicated to the proper care and treatment of their patients and they will remember to show their patients mercy, just as You have shown mercy to them. Lord, You detest the use of dishonest scales, but You delight in accurate weights.  So we rebuke the spirits of greed and injustice within the insurance industry that has prevented many Americans from being able to afford quality health coverage that will meet their family’s needs without bankrupting their budget.  Your Word admonishes that everything should be done properly and in order so we command the American health care system to line up with Your Word now, in Jesus’ Name.

 

List your concerns about the American Health Care System.  Now take those concerns to the Lord in prayer:

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

________________________________________________________________________________________

 

Holy Spirit, please give the uninsured the wisdom and direction as they navigate through the Affordable Care Act and help them to find coverage that will meet their budget.  Show business owners new ways to generate increased revenue to cover the cost of offering health insurance to their employees.  Lord, we ask that the wait times for appointments at the VA Hospital will be shortened and that each veteran will be treated with dignity and respect.  Holy Spirit, we ask that You give our government officials the wisdom on how to cut down on the redtape that ensnares so many veterans from receiving all of the medical benefits they are entitled to. Lord, touch the hearts of the pharmaceutical companies so that they will make needed medications affordable to all Americans.  Lord, we cry out for Your intervention and guidance in Jesus’ Name.

 

Loving Father, forgive us as a nation for our many sins.   Lord, forgive us for creating a society that allows such a wide disparity between the ‘haves’ and the ‘have-nots.’  Forgive us for greed, arrogance, lack of empathy and compassion, and selfishness.   Forgive us for not making a healthy lifestyle a priority.  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 all from the evil one.

 

Glorious King, Your eternal Word stands firm in heaven.  Your faithfulness extends to every generation, as enduring as the earth You created.  Your regulations remain true to this day, for everything serves Your plans.  You are the mighty King, the lover of justice; You established fairness.  You have acted with justice and righteousness throughout Israel.  We exalt You Lord, our God and bow low before Your feet for You are Holy!  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

March 25: A Prayer for Healthy Pregnancies and Healthy Babies

Gracious Father, we thank You for being the source of life.  Thank You for every expectant mother in our congregation.  Thank You for every child that has been born.  Father, we praise You.  We, who serve in Your house, praise You.  Lord, You are good; we celebrate Your lovely Name with music.  We know Your greatness, Lord; You are greater than any other god.  You do whatever pleases You throughout all heaven and earth, and on the seas and in the depths.  We sing praises to Your Name.  Every day we proclaim the good news that You save!

Omnipotent Father, our Creator, we declare that the children who are born are healthy and well loved. Lord, You knit them together in their mother’s womb.  We declare that each baby is wonderfully made. Your workmanship is marvelous!  You made all of their delicate, inner parts. Today, we confess that every baby in utero has exactly 46 chromosomes and they will develop without defect or deformity.  We declare that every cell, muscle, tissue and organ will develop according to Your divine purpose and plan.  We decree that mothers will carry their babies to full term. We destroy every demonic assignment against our unborn, including the assignment of premature birth. In Jesus’ Name, we proclaim that there will be no miscarriages or infertility in our congregation.  We proclaim that sickness and disease, including SIDS, autism, Down Syndrome, ADD, ADHD, juvenile diabetes, cancer, dyslexia, and all other childhood diseases or dysfunctions, have no legal right to inhabit our children because God is their Shepherd and Shield.

Holy Spirit, help me to pray strategically for the following families who are expecting a child:

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Holy Spirit, we ask You to increase Your wisdom, knowledge, and understanding in every expectant mother.  Remind them to get the proper rest and nutrition.  Lord, watch over each expectant mother and keep her body healthy.  Provide a support network of family and friends who will help them during and after their pregnancies.  Strengthen the minds, bodies and spirits of parents who have children with special needs.  Comfort and encourage those parents who have experienced a miscarriage.  For those couples who desire to have children, but have been unable to conceive, we ask that You would help them to not be anxious, but to trust You that in the ordained time and season, they will bring forth a child for Your glory.

Holy Father, please forgive our parents and expectant parents for any acts of sinfulness.  Forgive those who have committed fornication or adultery.  Forgive parents for stubbornness, quick tempers and lack of patience.  Forgive them for not seeking help when they are feeling anxious, depressed, fretful, angry or overwhelmed.   Forgive us for not offering more support to our parents.  Forgive us for the times when we have been insensitive to those families who have children with special needs.  Father, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed).  Holy Spirit, remind 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 our parents not to yield to temptation; but deliver them from the evil one.

Eternal God, You are greater than we can understand.  Your years cannot be counted.  You draw up the water vapor and distill it into rain.  Only You know where light comes from and where darkness goes.  You direct the movement of the stars, binding the cluster of the Pleiades and loosening the cords of Orion. Holy and triumphant is Your Name!  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
