Thursday Morning Prayer (Wk24/2021)

Abba Father, I awake this morning giving You all glory, honour, thanks and praise. I thank You for the brand new day placed before me and ask that You help me to remain sturdy within Your will.

Today, I continue to pray for revelation in Your Word. I pray not only for myself but Your people the world over. Wherever they may be and whatever they may be doing. Your people are called to do great and mighty things within every avenue and establishment on this earth; factories, government, hospitals, schools, universities, retail stores, supermarkets and everywhere else they may be. Give us the guidance, protection and strength we require to do all things, for we are all that You have said we are, and can do all that You have said we can do. We have been created in Your spiritual image and can do all things through You who have strengthened us. I pray that whenever we survey the reflection of our spirits, we may find You looking back at us. There is nothing we face today that You have not prepared us for. My Father and my God, we trust in You.

So God created man in His own image, in the image and likeness of God He created him; male and female He created them.

Genesis 1:27 (AMP)

and My people, who are called by My Name, humble themselves, and pray and seek (crave, require as a necessity) My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear [them] from heaven, and forgive their sin and heal their land.

2 Chronicles 7:14 (AMP)

[For my determined purpose is] that I may know Him [that I may progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him, perceiving and recognizing and understanding the wonders of His Person more strongly and more clearly], and that I may in that same way come to know the power outflowing from His resurrection [which it exerts over believers], and that I may so share His sufferings as to be continually transformed [in spirit into His likeness even] to His death, [in the hope]

Philippians 3:10 (AMPC)

I can do all things [which He has called me to do] through Him who strengthens and empowers me [to fulfill His purpose—I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency; I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him who infuses me with inner strength and confident peace.]

Philippians 4:13 (AMP)

20 Now may the God of peace [Who is the Author and the Giver of peace], Who brought again from among the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, by the blood [that sealed, ratified] the everlasting agreement (covenant, testament),

21 Strengthen (complete, perfect) and make you what you ought to be and equip you with everything good that you may carry out His will; [while He Himself] works in you and accomplishes that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ (the Messiah); to Whom be the glory forever and ever (to the ages of the ages).

Amen (so be it).

Hebrews 13:20-21 (AMPC)

Wednesday Morning Scripture (Wk24/2021)

Growth in Christian Virtue

1 Simon Peter, a bond-servant and apostle (special messenger, personally chosen representative) of Jesus Christ, to those who have received and possess [by God’s will] a precious faith of the same kind as ours, by the righteousness of our God and Savior, Jesus Christ:

2 Grace and peace [that special sense of spiritual well-being] be multiplied to you in the [true, intimate] knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.

3 For His divine power has bestowed on us [absolutely] everything necessary for [a dynamic spiritual] life and godliness, through true and personal knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence.

4 For by these He has bestowed on us His precious and magnificent promises [of inexpressible value], so that by them you may escape from the immoral freedom that is in the world because of disreputable desire, and become sharers of the divine nature.

5 For this very reason, applying your diligence [to the divine promises, make every effort] in [exercising] your faith to, develop moral excellence, and in moral excellence, knowledge (insight, understanding),

6 and in your knowledge, self-control, and in your self-control, steadfastness, and in your steadfastness, godliness,

7 and in your godliness, brotherly affection, and in your brotherly affection, [develop Christian] love [that is, learn to unselfishly seek the best for others and to do things for their benefit].

8 For as these qualities are yours and are increasing [in you as you grow toward spiritual maturity], they will keep you from being useless and unproductive in regard to the true knowledge and greater understanding of our Lord Jesus Christ.

9 For whoever lacks these qualities is blind—shortsighted [closing his spiritual eyes to the truth], having become oblivious to the fact that he was cleansed from his old sins.

10 Therefore, believers, be all the more diligent to make certain about His calling and choosing you [be sure that your behavior reflects and confirms your relationship with God]; for by doing these things [actively developing these virtues], you will never stumble [in your spiritual growth and will live a life that leads others away from sin];

11 for in this way entry into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will be abundantly provided to you.

2 Peter 1:1-11 (AMP)

Tuesday Morning Prayer (Wk24/2021)

El Elyon, The Most High God, I thank You for seeing me through another night and waking me up on this brand new day. Many fell asleep last night and did not awake this morning. Therefore, I just want to give You thanks for all You have done and what You intend to do.

Today, I continue to pray for revelation of my true identity in You. I pray to go deeper within my knowledge of You. I have been made holy and set apart for Your purpose. Therefore, I pray for the eyes of my heart, mind and soul to be opened. At every available moment, throughout the day, may I see and feel the manifestation of Your Holy Spirit in my life and the world around me. As I delve into Your Word, speak to me Father, like never before. Clear my spiritual ears, so I may hear Your voice and not be deafened by the things in the natural. May we become one. You have said in Your Word that all we have to do is ask for a thing and it will be ours; so I am asking and expect to receive. I thank You that You do not only refer to things in the spiritual realm but also the physical. Confidence is mine. Healing is mine. Peace is mine. Prosperity is mine. Protection is mine. Wisdom is mine. I ask for all this and whatever else You know that I need, because You know all things. Father God, this day, I trust in You.

But now since you have been set free from sin and have become [willing] slaves to God, you have your benefit, resulting in sanctification [being made holy and set apart for God’s purpose], and the outcome [of this] is eternal life.

Romans 6:22 (AMP)

For God did not give us a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear, but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of sound judgment and personal discipline [abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control].

2 Timothy 1:7 (AMP)

10 Therefore, believers, be all the more diligent to make certain about His calling and choosing you [be sure that your behavior reflects and confirms your relationship with God]; for by doing these things [actively developing these virtues], you will never stumble [in your spiritual growth and will live a life that leads others away from sin];

11 for in this way entry into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will be abundantly provided to you.

2 Peter 1: (AMP)

20 Now may the God of peace [Who is the Author and the Giver of peace], Who brought again from among the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, by the blood [that sealed, ratified] the everlasting agreement (covenant, testament),

21 Strengthen (complete, perfect) and make you what you ought to be and equip you with everything good that you may carry out His will; [while He Himself] works in you and accomplishes that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ (the Messiah); to Whom be the glory forever and ever (to the ages of the ages).

Amen (so be it).

Monday Morning Prayer (Wk24/2021)

Elohe Tishuathi, the God of my Salvation, I come before You giving all glory, honour, praise and thanks. I thank You for what You’ve done, what you are doing and what You intend to do. I give You praise because of who You are and give You thanks that You are not done with me yet!

Today, I pray for revelation of my true identity in You. There is so much that You have provided for me to know You and there are many anointed to point me in the right direction. I ask that You open my mind, spirit and soul to the fact that I have also been anointed, chosen and appointed to do a great work on this earth. It is all for Your Kingdom. Open my eyes that I may be transformed and continually grow to be more like You. Give me the strength to do what I am called to do, but to not fear, simply because I am being directed and led by You. Illuminate me, so I will no longer walk by sight but by Your Spirit. Thank You for being with me at all times and fulfilling Your promise of neither leaving nor forsaking me. My Father and my God, I trust in You.

So God created man in His own image, in the image and likeness of God He created him; male and female He created them.

Genesis 1:27 (AMP)

John 15:16 (AMP)

[That you may really come] to know [practically, through experience for yourselves] the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge [without experience]; that you may be filled [through all your being] unto all the fullness of God [may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself]!

Ephesians 3:19 (AMP)

[For my determined purpose is] that I may know Him [that I may progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him, perceiving and recognizing and understanding the wonders of His Person more strongly and more clearly], and that I may in that same way come to know the power outflowing from His resurrection [which it exerts over believers], and that I may so share His sufferings as to be continually transformed [in spirit into His likeness even] to His death, [in the hope]

Saturday Morning Prayer (Wk23/2021)

My Almighty God…Father…Daddy! I behold this beautiful day, giving You glory, honour, thanks and praise.

Today, I ask for divine refreshment. I’m aware of what I have planned but know that Your plans can override it all. Lift my spirit, so I may remain fully connected to You. May Your Spirit fully surround me, as my mind says one thing and I know that You would want another. I ask to be filled with the promised unspeakable triumphant joy. Let my conversation and deeds be ones that sweeten the soul. If there is any breeze blowing, as the sun beats down, I pray it will touch me to my very core and provide the same refreshment as Your Holy Spirit. Help me to see every situation and realise it as the blessing it is. I pray to ‘just be’ and enjoy the life and the people you have provided for me. Help me as I attempt to focus on what is, rather than what is not. I place You before me and, as always, trust in You.

Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable and pleasing in Your sight, O Lord, my [firm, immovable] rock and my Redeemer.
