Our Hope Is In Christ

Heavenly Father, Thank you for being strong enough to hold us in Your comfort. Thank You for being strong enough to and carry us when we are week.  Thank You for being a big God who nothing is impossible for.  Thank You for being a loving God who loves His children unconditionally.  Lord, we come before You today in need of hope.  Lord, where we feel despair and hopeless, we need you to help us throw down our anchor to find hope and strength to be immovable by the battles we face.  Lord, where we feel lost in our walk with You, we need hope to know that You go after the lost until You find us (Luke 15:4).   Lord where we feel we have lost who we are in You, we need hope to know that if we forget about ourselves and look to You, we will find both ourselves and You (Matthew 10:39 MSG).  Lord, where we feel discouraged about our future or how we will get there, we need hope to know that You have plans to give us a future and a hope (Jeremiah 29:11) and that man can plan his ways but the Lord directs his steps and establishes them (Proverbs 16:9).  Lord, where we feel You have left and abandoned us, we need hope to know You will never leave us nor forsake us (Deuteronomy 3:16).

Lord, fear has no place because our hope is found in You.  Lord, worry has no place because our hope is found in You.  Lord, doubt has no place because our hope is found in You.  Lord, hopelessness has no place because our hope can be found in You.  For God alone our soul waits in silence and quietly submits to Him, For our hope is from Him (Psalm 62:5).  For You are our hope; O Lord God, You are our trust and the source of our confidence (Psalm 71:5).  For all of our hope can be found in You.  How blessed and greatly favored is the man who trusts in You [believing in You, relying on You, and committing himself to You with confident hope and expectation] (Psalm 84:12).  So Lord we wait patiently on you, our soul [expectantly] waits, and in Your word do we hope (Psalm 130:5).  Uphold us according to Your word [of promise], so that we may live; And do not let us be ashamed of our hope [in Your great goodness] (Psalm 119:116).  Lord, we have desires that You have given us so help us to have expectation in You with the hope of seeing them manifest.  Help us to rest securely in our hope in You.  Let us be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, and faithful in prayer (Romans 12:12).  That You Lord, the source of hope will fill us completely with joy and peace because we trust in You.  Then we will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit (Romans 15:13).

In Jesus Mighty Name We Pray, AMEN!

 

 

Awaken

Lord,

We thank you for always making a way even when it seems impossible.  Lord, we thank you that you have never given up on us.  Lord, we thank you that you are so faithful and loyal to us.  Lord, we thank you that you are for us and with us. Thank You God that you awaken us morning after morning.

Lord, we ask that you awaken us today.  Awaken us to what has been asleep, dead, or things we have been blinded by.  Awaken the sleeping giant within us.  Awaken the treasures of our gifts and talents to be stired up within us and let them only be used to glorify your name.  Awaken us to the authority that we hold to trample over our enemies.  Awaken more faith in us.  Awaken us with a change in perspective where our view is not like yours.  Awaken our hearts to love more like you and see people the way you do.  Awaken us with the desire to live unmasked and be our true authentic selves.   Awaken us to the beauty we hold inside and out.  Awaken us to the incredible grace you give to us daily and the mercy that never comes to an end and is new every morning (Lamentations 3:22-23).   Awaken us to our passions, purpose, power and what we possess to help bring healing, encouragement, peace, and love to those we come into contact with.  Awaken our spirit to be more sensitive to your prescence.  Awake our soul (Psalm 57:8) to come into alignment with our spirit.  Awaken our mouths to speak life and bring healing to all who hear us speak.

Lord, reveal any areas in our lives where we are blinded so we no longer lack the ability to not see.   For every area that seems dead in us let us speak your word and say Awake, And arise from the dead, And Christ will shine [as dawn] upon you and give you light (Ephesians 5:14).  Lord, and where we slumber let us Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.  See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you.  Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn (Isaiah 60:1-3).  Lord help us to be awaken to what you are doing in our lives and in this world.  Lord, help us to be prepared and ready for each morning with a mind that is alert, attentive and responsive to your voice.

Lord, resurrect any dead things in our lives and bring them back to life for your purpose. Heal us God from anything that is causing blindness in our lives so that we may began to see things more from your viewpoint and less from our limitations that we have placed on you.  Heal our ears and give our ears a higher frequency to be able to hear from you. Enhance our vision to be able to see more of you and your glory in our daily lives.  Lord, give us a greater expectation for all you want to do in our lives.  Let us be fully conscious of your goodness and your greatness.

In Jesus Name We Pray, AMEN!!!

 

Standing Against the Enemy

Lord, we Thank You for the suffering Jesus endured for us and that He willingly gave His life so that we would be forgiven. Lord we Thank You that Jesus rose 3 days later to defeat death and the enemy. Lord, we Thank You that you did all of this for us and that You gave us victory over our enemies. Lord, Thank You that you have given us authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy, and nothing will harm us (Luke 10:19). Lord we Thank You that when the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him (Isaiah 59:19). Lord, help us to put on the full armor of God. Lord, we are your children, so we declare that no weapon formed against us shall prosper (Isaiah 54:7). Lord, we pray in the name of Jesus and rebuke and render powerless any and all things that would cause division, discord, strife, condemnation, pride, envy, jealousy, gossip, slander, complaining, fear of lack, evil speaking and deceiving spirits. Lord, we bind all curses that have been spoken against us. Lord, bless those who curse us, and we pray blessings on those who despitefully use us (Luke 6:28). We declare that we are the righteousness of God. So satan, you are bound from our family, our friends, our mind, our heart, our body, our home, our finances, our feelings and emotions. We confess with our mouth that we are healed and whole in Jesus Name. For God we know that you have placed purpose in us and You have a destiny for us to reach. Lord through our suffering let us see the treasures that you have placed inside of us. Because your word says that from the standpoint of faith that the sufferings of the present life are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is about to be revealed to us and in us (Romans 8:18). Lord we ask that you put a hedge of protection around us today. Lord show us the tactics that the enemy has in his plan to come and steal, kill and destroy any part of who we are in You. Teach us how to walk in the authority that you have already given us over our enemies. Let us be boastful in our weaknesses because your grace is sufficient and you power is made perfect in our weakness.

We pray all these things in Your Son Jesus Mighty Name, AMEN!!!
