Father God, thank you for sustaining your children in all seasons. Whether we are in good financial times or find ourselves with nothing, You are there to provide. Just like You commanded the ravens to feed Elijah in the morning and the evening You will feed your children. Because I am Your child I know that my needs will always be met. You gave us a way back to You through Jesus Christ, The Messiah. You parted the Red Sea for Moses, You gave Noah the plans for the Ark, You gave Joshua victory over the people who inhabited the promised land and You are still that God today. Your love, mercy, and grace abound to those who believe. To those who keep Your commandments and who are obedient to Your ways. Let us never forget that the Creator of the Universe sees everything we do, say, think, or wonder. I pray Father that Jesus would be the focus of every single person on this earth. What a beautiful place this could be. I pray that people help one another, be kind and generous, always forgiving, and never judging. Stir all people to turn away from sin and repent. Jesus is our example of how to be a human being. Let us resemble Him more each day. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen
Father God everything under the sun is possible with You. Nothing is out of Your reach. I pray Lord that people would realize the possibilities if they would only turn from sin and return to You. Jesus, You made it possible for us to accomplish far greater things than You if we would only believe and receive. Help us Jesus to drop those things that we are carrying in this life so that we can receive this undeserved gift of salvation. The gift that is from God by grace. Let us do that which You lead us to do BECAUSE we have been saved. Not to earn salvation but to show its fruits. Let us joyfully give of our time, money, and talents because we were given the gift of salvation. Father I pray that there be a great awakening for Your glory. Let us see wonders Jesus, let us speak prophecy, and work in our spiritual gifts to further the kingdom of heaven here on earth. Let prayer be the language we chose for all situations. Thank you Jesus for being faithful. Thank you Father for Your extravagant love. In Jesus’ name, AMEN.
January 22nd prayer… Father God I acknowledge Your supremacy over all things. You are on the throne and, I worship You. In awe and wonder I gaze upon You all day long. I sing Holy Holy Holy is the Lord God Almighty. The One who is, and was, and is to come. All things are subject to You Lord God. Your rule is for eternity and I will praise Your Holy name all the days that You give me. Let my prayer and worship be a sweet incense to You oh God. Blessed is the Name above all names, that is Jesus Christ. Jesus you are seated in the holiest of holy places, at the right hand of the Father. I bow to Your kingship and submit my life to You. My Father, who art in heaven, hallowed by thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, here on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily Bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Lead us not into temptation but, deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory for all time. My life is Yours Lord, I will serve You as a bond servant all of my days. Reign Lord Jesus and bless this world. In Jesus’ holy name I pray, AMEN.
“Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created.” Revelation 4:11 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/rev.4.11.ESV
Father God, Your promises create hope in those who wait for You. I believe that You will faithfully fulfill all the promises that we read in the Word. You have rescued Your people time and time again when we strayed to worship other gods, like money, lust, greed, power, and self adoration. Forgive us Lord. I worship You God, the Creator and wait on You to move on my behalf. Remind us Lord that You are seeking our repentant hearts in this very moment. I trust Father that when we turn from evil ways, thoughts, deeds, and habits that You will be there waiting with open arms. You have good things in store for those who wait on You. I pray Father that in the times of waiting I would get to know more and more of You. In those quiet times let me rest in Your arms. When it is time to move Jesus, lead the way. When the waiting is over God I pray that we, Your bride are ready and willing to do all that You set out for us to accomplish. Let us serve our King of Kings in love and truth so that Your glory shines brighter than ever before. Teach us and train us Lord God for the next thing so that we are willing and able through Jesus Christ to accomplish greater things. In Jesus’ name, AMEN.
Father God You heard the prayers of Your Son Jesus when he prayed for all believers. Jesus prayed that all believers would be united in Him just as You are in Jesus and He is in You. Jesus prayed that all who should believe in You should be united as one. Let us remember as sons and daughters of the one True God, that You passed on Your glory through Jesus Christ, that we might be glory bearers. For Jesus prayed these words, The glory that you have given me I have given to them, that they may be one even as we are one, John 17:22 ESV We carry Your glory through Jesus Christ. My prayer Lord God is that we would conduct ourselves in such a manner that the world would see Your glory flowing out of Your church. Help us to come together in unity Lord. Let us be peaceable, loving, truthful, honorable, and forgiving. Let us be quick to show mercy and slow to speak. Help us to do a new thing today God. Unite us through Jesus Christ that we might show many more the way of salvation. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen.
Father God I bow to Your supremacy. There is none more powerful than You. You command the wind, the sea, the sun, and the moon. You are the beginning and the end. A triune God who sees all, hears all, knows all, and still choses to forgive us! You alone are worthy of praise and worship. You are the creator of everything and yet You gave us the directive to rule and reign before we fell to sin and gave away the keys to the kingdom. Even then, You were faithful to us who were ignorant of the magnitude of what had just come to be. You made a way for us to still draw near to You in Your Son, Jesus. We are always on Your mind, You care for us. Your ways are still a mystery to us. Thank You for being a good good Father. That we may call You, Abba. We bless Your name and call You, Holy, Holy, Holy! In Jesus’ name, AMEN.
Father God, I thank You that I was born in the USA. I have a great love for my country. You sent those who were fighting for religious freedom and against high taxes to establish a country You could be proud of. Help us Lord to turn back to You! Let this nation all repent and ask for forgiveness. America has become defiled in every way Lord. Send a rushing wind to cleanse the lawlessness and corruption from our government. Let our leaders bow the knee only to You Almighty God. Strip the big tech companies of the power they hold over our representatives, congressman, clergy, judges, and Presidential offices. Bring the media mountain down to dust for misleading and lying to the American people and the world. Send a host of angels to protect those who still look to You Lord for wisdom and guidance. Let new people who love You be elected into offices that are for the people and not for themselves. Help is make America great again Jesus. Shine Your glory on the corrupt and evil dealings of this establishment and bring them all to justice. I pray Jesus that Holy Spirit wash over law makers and lead them in all wisdom. We desire a better country while we are still occupying this land. For we know and hope for our future place that is in heaven. In Jesus’ name I pray, AMEN.
If they had been thinking of that land from which they had gone out, they would have had opportunity to return. But as it is, they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared for them a city. Hebrews 11:15-16 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/heb.11.15-16.ESV
Father God your love for us is extravagant and, beyond measure. You made a way for us to come back to You even after the fall. You never leave us or forsake us. Jesus, Your only Son, was sent to defeat sin and death on our behalf. Thank You Father for giving us the choice to choose between life and death, blessing or curse. I chose life through Jesus Christ my risen King and that is the moment you resurrected me! I was dead in my transgressions and, now I am alive in Christ. A new creation meant to further the kingdom of my Father in heaven. Your ways are by far too extraordinary for mere humans to grasp so You reveal bits and pieces for us to understand. Help Lord in our faith to always keep our eyes fixed on You. Let all that we do reveal Your glory to a broken world. Remind us, Your church that we were created in Jesus Christ to preach the gospel and baptize new believers. Give Your church a new awakening to rule and reign as You commanded in the beginning. Forgive us Lord for trying to live in both worlds. Give us the courage to leave the old life behind and never turn back. Thank You Father for Your extravagant love. In Jesus’ name I pray, AMEN.
Today’s YouVersion verse of the day hits home for me! I was brought up by hard working parents who did everything they knew how to give their kids better lives than they had. They had the best intentions for us. We were spoiled children who got pretty much anything we wanted when we were little. It was in our teens that our family started to unravel. Adultery and lies broke our charmed existence. At age 18 I found adoption papers in my mother’s file cabinet… MY adoption papers. I was so confused! When confronted with those legal documents my mother shut down and, said it was for my own good. She refused to speak of it again. She made it very clear to me that the father who raised me was in fact my biological dad even though she was married to someone else. For the next 35 years I struggled with my identity. I don’t really remember much about my 20’s because I spent it intoxicated to numb the pain. When I was finally at the end of myself on this matter God gave me an angel! Robyn stepped up and volunteered to do a DNA test with me. What I knew in my heart was absolutely true, I was a Manspeaker not a Droste. It’s been almost a year ago now and, looking back over my life I see Jesus in it at every turn. Once I was saved my life started to do a 180°. I backslid pretty fast and that lasted for a few years. God again sent me an angel in Amy McClure who invited me to a bible study called Freedom by Nancy Tanton. That is where God grabbed hold of me and has never let me go. So, I look back and see that even though I suffered for a little while, God has kept his promise to me. He has set me on a firm foundation! He has restored my identity both as a person and a spirit. He has strengthened me like a sword is forged in fire. Jesus has equipped me for such a day as this. Holy Spirit has asked me to share this testimony in order that it touches someone else. Keep seeking God with all of your heart, and you WILL find Him.
Never give up! Never count it all as lost! Look to Jesus Christ and find your heart’s desire.
In his kindness God called you to share in his eternal glory by means of Christ Jesus. So after you have suffered a little while, he will restore, support, and strengthen you, and he will place you on a firm foundation. 1 Peter 5:10 NLT https://bible.com/bible/116/1pe.5.10.NLT
Father God we are more than blessed by the spiritual wisdom that You make known to us. Your word says that wisdom starts with the fear of the Lord. Let the world see that You should be feared above all else. With the fear that is reverent not with a terrifying fear. You are a good good Father and, just like we obey our parents as little children we must always obey our heavenly Father who is able to see the end of our path. Impart godly wisdom upon those that You have called. The kind of wisdom James describes that is the wisdom from above. It is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. I pray Father that humanity would turn away from corruption. That peace would the goal.of every nation. That people would be gentle and open to reason. That we could all put the other above ourselves in mercy and generosity. Thank You Lord God for sending Jesus to walk in our flesh as an example of this wisdom and obedience. Let us long to become more and more like Jesus. Keeping our thoughts on those things that are of Your character. Being slow to anger, and quick to forgive. Let us be like little children once again when we obey You. I pray that You give us wisdom to mind what You say and ask of us without question. After all, we know that You will finish the work that You have started in us to its full completion. You only have good things for us so help us all God to have a faith that doesn’t waver or question. Let us fear the name of the Lord our God. In Jesus’ name I pray, AMEN
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Proverbs 1:7 ESV
If you are wise and understand God’s ways, prove it by living an honorable life, doing good works with the humility that comes from wisdom. But if you are bitterly jealous and there is selfish ambition in your heart, don’t cover up the truth with boasting and lying. For jealousy and selfishness are not God’s kind of wisdom. Such things are earthly, unspiritual, and demonic. For wherever there is jealousy and selfish ambition, there you will find disorder and evil of every kind. But the wisdom from above is first of all pure. It is also peace loving, gentle at all times, and willing to yield to others. It is full of mercy and the fruit of good deeds. It shows no favoritism and is always sincere. And those who are peacemakers will plant seeds of peace and reap a harvest of righteousness.
James 3:13-18 NLT
