Discouragement No More

Thank you God that you hear our prayers and you meet us where  we have needs.  Thank you Lord, that we can come to You and commune with You anytime we want.  Thank you Father for always being there for us no matter what.  Lord, the enemy is really trying to get us discouraged, lose hope and give up.  But Your word says You are our rock and our salvation; our fortress and our defense and we will not be shaken or discouraged (Psalm 62:6).  Lord, shine new light in the dark areas of our life and reveal to us anything that the enemy wants to keep hidden about us that needs to be acknowledged and changed.  As you reveal these things to us and we come face to face with them, let us be strong and courageous.  And let us not be afraid or discouraged for the Lord our God will be with us wherever we go (Joshua 1:9).

Holy Spirit remind us to not become discouraged or disappointed when things don’t turn out how we expected by bringing to our recollection that our innerself is being progressively renewed day by day (2 Corinthians 4:16).  So no matter what it looks like, we can stand on the truth that You are renewing us everyday and You will finish the work You started in us.  Lord, where we lack motivation to read Your word, pray or give you praise, quicken in us the desire to worship You just for who You are.  Because giving thanks to You brings the joy of the Lord to us.   And let us never forget where you have brought us from.  Help us to stay on track with Your plan for our lives and let us not grow weary or become discouraged in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap, if we do not give in.  Lord, help us to not lose hope and help us to take our thoughts captive and think on everything that is good.  Help us to see You working on our behalf and that You are holding us in the palm of Your hands and that You will never let go of us.  Help us to know and feel Your unconditional love everyday and be able to share that love with those you place around us.  Let the light of Jesus radiate such brightness from the inside of us that others who are discouraged are attracted to the light we carry so we can help encourage them out of discouragement.  Because Father as we do for them, You will also do for us.  We love You, we adore You and thank you Lord that you call us Your own.

In Jesus Name we pray, Amen

 

 

Calling God Into Our Dry Places

O God, You are our God; with deepest longing we will seek You; Our soul [our life, our very self] thirsts for You, our flesh longs and sighs for You, In a dry and weary land where there is no water (Psalm 63:1).  So Lord we call upon You, to come into our dry places because we know that only You can turn dry land into springs of water (Psalm 107:35).  We ask that You continually guide us through theses dry places in our lives.  Lord, satisfy our soul in these scorched and dry places.  Give us sustaining strength, so we can be like a watered garden and like a spring of water whose waters do not fail (Isaiah 58:11).  Lord, rain down on us and let us be saturated with your goodness and soaked by Your love all they way down to our roots that have been planted in You.  Lord, as you plant seeds in us, help them to never stop growing in You.  Help us to do the things we need to do for those seeds to be watered and nourished by You.

Wherever we may experience a famine, let Your power still continue to grow in us because it is necessary and needed.  Lord, you said if anyone is thirsty , let him come to Me and drink!  He who believes in Me [who adheres to, trusts in, and relies on Me] as the Scripture has said, ‘From his innermost being will flow continually rivers of living water (John 7:37-38).”  Let Your water become in us like a spring of water [satifsfying our thirst for God] welling up [continually flowing, bubbling within us] to eternal life (John 4:14).  Let Your rivers of living water flow through us and let it bring new life to any place in our lives that has dried up and been unable to grow.

From the living water that we have received, let new revelations and discoveries of You spring forth.  Let our knowledge of You expand and our potential be realized for our destiny and the call that You have placed on our lives.  Help us to be confident and strong in You and walk upright in the expansion of our wisdom.  Help us to walk more in the Holy Spirit and under the annointing to use our gifts and talents for Your glory.  Restore to us the joy of our salvation And sustain us with a willing spirit (Psalm 51:12).

In JESUS Mighty Name We Pray, AMEN!!!

 

Praying Against Confusion & Chaos

Lord,

We thank You for this day.  We thank You that you give clarity and wisdom to those who lack it.  We thank you God that you give revelation and understanding in times of chaos and confusion.  Lord, there are places where we have allowed thoughts of confusion to enter our minds and dwell there longer than it should.  So we ask God that You come into those places and eliminate the confusion and give us wisdom.  Lord, Your word says  If any of you lacks wisdom [to guide him through a decision or circumstance], he is to ask of [our benevolent] God, who gives to everyone generously and without rebuke or blame, and it will be given to him (James 1:5-8).  Lord, let us be in expectation for the wisdom that only You can give us and not think like a double minded-man who is unstable and restless in his ways.  For confusion does not come from You and is not of You but it is a tactic that the enemy will use to get us off track and out of alignment with the steps that you have establised for us to walk in.  Lord, help to walk in those established steps in Your will and in Your timing.  Help us to resist trying to live in our own will.  Lord, help us to lean more on you and trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all our heart And do not rely on your own insight or understanding.  In all our ways help us to know and acknowledge and recognize the Lord, And He will make our paths straight and smooth [removing obstacles that block our way].  Let us not be wise in our own eyes; Fear the Lord [with reverent awe and obedience] and turn [entirely] away from evil (Proverbs 3:5-7).  Lord, give us a new perspective on the situation and let us see it from Your view.  When chaos tries to come into our lives and cause confusion,  Lord gives us peace in our hearts and our minds.  Gives us Your peace that surpasses all understanding (Philippians 4:7) in Jesus name.

For You are not a God of confusion and disorder but of peace and order (1 Corinthians 14:33).  Lord, where we may be experiencing chaos right now, we ask that you bind it in the Name of Jesus and bring godly order to that situation right now.  Give us discernment for our part in Your plan to do this and wherever Lord we need to take our hands off the situation direct us to do that.  Lord, we leave it with You and in Your hands and we need You to have Your way. Lord we ask that You work this situation out for the good and let us be forever changed for the better because of this, strengthened by it and wiser for going through it.

In Jesus Mighty Name We Pray, AMEN!!
