Devotional Prayer

Tuesday 6th October 2020

Abba Father, I call on Your Holy Spirit today. Prepare me to be a sanctuary where Your Holy Spirit dwells. In You there is strength. In You there is protection. In You there is healing. In You there is fullness of joy. I open my arms, heart and spirit to be filled to an overflow; to be healed. Heal me from all infirmities, whether they be of the mind, spirit or body. I ask that You touch me from the hairs on my head to the souls of my feet. Breathe on me breath of El Elyon.

I thank You that I am covered by Your blood, the balm of Gilead. It is that balm that saturates my soul and heals and makes me whole.

Abba Father, as I start a new week, I give You all the praise, honour and glory. I lift You up and place this day before You and ask that You have Your way. Forgive me of all sins, be they of thought, word or deed, seen or unseen, intentional or not. Assist me as I try to live my life for You and grant me the grace to never give up, no matter how things may seem. Draw me closer to You.

At all times I will place You before me, in everything I do; because You remain at my right hand, I shall not be moved. I am unshakeable, I stand firm. I will be focused.

Psalm 61:2/Isaiah 55:8-10/Luke14:10

The enemy is waiting close by, seeking who he may devour. I know he comes only to steal, kill and destroy; my freedom, my joy, my money, my family members, my job, my future, my peace, my potential and so much more. However, You have come that I may have an abundant life. I receive and firmly grip all that You have offered and ask that You give me the strength to hold on to You in faith.

DEVOTIONAL PRAYER

Wednesday 26th August 2020

Abba Father, I thank You for getting me through yesterday’s day and waking me up to face another. You didn’t have to do it but You did, so I can only assume that You have a plan laid out for me. I ask that, as the rain is washing the earth that I realise Your living water is on offer to wash over my soul and purify me. No matter what I face today, I ask that You go before me and have Your way.

Living water, comes from You

The LORD will pour His water on us and our families. His Spirit will quench our dry places of work and rest.

Your Word tells us that they who hunger and thirst after righteousness will be filled, so I’m hungering and I’m thirsting and know I shall receive, as Your Word tells me all I need do is ask.

Devotional Prayer

Tuesday 25th August 2020

Abba Father, as I wake this morning may I be covered in Your Holy armour. I ask that I am forgiven of all sins of thoughts, words or deeds. I am aware that if I am anointed, blessed and strengthened by You, I need not fear. From my head to toe, inside and out, walk with me today. Help me to fight all battles, both seen and unseen.

I stand amazed and in awe of You! My mind cannot fathom Your might, no matter how hard I try.

Romans 11:35-36

I stand with my waist, firmly protected with truth;

my physical body, and everything about me (emotional and spiritual), protected with the breastplate of righteousness;

my feet ready to stand firm and walk as far as is needed, to share Your gospel of peace;

I quench all fiery darts, both internal and external, that may negatively affect my faith using Your shield of faith;

I take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is Your Word;

Fervently and with perseverance, I will pray in Your Spirit, for the world, my family, friends, neighbours, colleagues and acquaintances, so that we may all come to really know You and the power of Your resurrection;

I pray utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains; and

With this boldness, I pray that I may speak of anything pertaining to You with confidence.

Ephesians 6:14-20

All I do, is because of You who strengthens me

All I do is not by my might nor by my power but by Your Spirit.

Devotional Prayer

Monday 24th August 2020

Abba Father, I awake ready to face the day and the week ahead. It has been hard to regulate and get back to normal after the changes that have taken place, because of the Coronavirus. Strengthen me, so that I walk without fear. I place myself at Your feet and ask that I walk in complete protection. Cover me from the hairs on my head to the soles of my feet. Please have Your Way.

Your Word says that we should ask, to receive; seek, to find; and knock for the doors to be opened. Therefore, I am asking, seeking and knocking. These things shall be honoured.

Matthew 7:7

You chose me, and for that I am grateful. It is because I have been chosen by You that I stand out and I am set apart from the world. It is only by Your grace that I have been brought out of the darkness to Your marvellous Light.

I thank You that You are the same God today that You were yesterday. You do not change. As You have been there for me in the past You will be there for me in the future and You will be there with and for me throughout the week.

As You told the disciples many years ago, to launch out into the deep, give me the courage to do the same.

Amen

LORD bless me and keep me: LORD make Your face shine upon me, and be gracious to me: LORD lift up Your countenance on me and give me peace.

Numbers 6:24-6

WE. ARE. ENOUGH!

Attractive ENOUGH

Beautiful ENOUGH

Bold ENOUGH

Important ENOUGH

Successful ENOUGH

Intelligent ENOUGH

Sexy ENOUGH

Handsome ENOUGH

Shapely ENOUGH

Slim ENOUGH

Kind ENOUGH

Strong ENOUGH

Pretty ENOUGH

Smart ENOUGH

Fat ENOUGH

Talented ENOUGH

WE. ARE. ENOUGH!

When will we think that we are enough? Society, family, friends, acquaintances and colleagues, can put so much pressure on us both knowingly and unknowingly. This can make us feel insecure, ugly, stupid, guilty, weak and any other negative connotation out there, but who is right? Who made the heavens and earth? Who made YOU? There is NO THING or NO ONE that our Most High God has made that is wrong, so YOU, my dear, are exactly as you are supposed to be!

You may feel as though you are finished with; at the end of your days. You may feel as though you are a lost cause. You may feel as though nothing can be done for you. You may feel as though you deserve every negative thing that has been thrown your way…but MY God…YOUR God…is telling ME/US that WE. ARE. ENOUGH!

This is no matter what age, colour, ethnicity, intellect, sex, size or whatever other way humans are categorised.

The world may try to tell you to improve in different ways so that you fit in or comply with your surroundings but, how about becoming at peace with yourself. It is when you are at peace with yourself that you will make amendments that you deem necessary. Now, with me saying that you may feel that I’m saying it in a ‘nicer’ way that you are not enough but I’m not. Our mental existence is a state of mind. You may have heard the scripture that says ‘how a man thinketh in his heart, so is he’ (Proverbs 23:7). One interpretation of this, for me, is that an individual can think negatively about themselves and live in turmoil or acceptance that they really are as they think or believe. They will live a sheltered life and not to their full potential because they do not believe they are worthy. However, putting it into that context, when there has been a complete change of mind; you begin to see yourself as what you really are and who The God Most High says you are. It is then that what you think of yourself will overflow into your life and it will truly begin. You’ll be able to walk with your head held high and life will truly be golden. How one feels is down to the individual. In the beginning our God Most High created Adam and Eve, and as when everything else was created, He saw that it was good! Affirm it!

AFFIRMATIONS

An affirmation is the confirmation or acknowledgement that a statement or something is true. Placing an ‘I am’, ‘I can’, ‘I will’ or ‘I must’ before a statement can solidify it and make it concrete. Below are a few that I have said haphazardly. You can affirm them any number of times per day and for as long as you think it is needed. I have found the longer and more consistent you are, the better. However, it varies for each person. Depending on whether it’s your first time or according to your brain capacity (i.e whether or not you can retain a lot of information), start off with one or as many as time will allow. As you build up momentum, increase the amount or replace some. It sometimes helps to do it before a mirror, looking into your eyes and telling yourself what you are affirming. Decree and declare it!

Here are a few that have worked for me!

  • I am enough
  • I am fearfully and wonderfully made
  • I am in charge of how I feel and TODAY I am choosing happiness
  • I am made in His image
  • I am whole
  • I believe that nothing is impossible, if I only believe
  • I deserve the best and I accept and create the best now
  • I have the power to create change
  • I let go of ALL that no longer serves me
  • It’s a good day to have a good day
  • Today I abandon old habits and take up new, more positive ones

Remember, The Most High God has given YOU this AMAZING, DYNAMIC POWER, to do, be, have and create ALL that you desire, so go out and make it.

DEVOTIONAL PRAYER

Tuesday 18th August 2020

Abba Father, this morning I just want to thank You for who You are to me.

The sun is hidden but I can still feel its warmth. This reminds me how, at times, my relationship is with You. I can’t see You but I can feel You. The times I can’t see or visualise You, are the occasions where I may be too busy or occupied with other things. However, today, as I look at Your creation; the colour of the sky and how it is filled with clouds; the leaves on the trees that will soon start to fall away and litter the streets with its golden array of colours; the cool breeze, that everyone has been looking forward to. On a really sunny day, when the sky is a clear blue, it’s possible to see the airplanes as they fly leaving contrails in their wake. The knowledge and abilities that have been given to mankind but not all recognise You for it……..

It’s then that I am reminded what a Mighty God I serve and how Great You are!

Thank You Father for making me and placing me where You have. Help me to leave my mark on this world and in the lives of all those I meet, so Your glory will truly be known. I pray that by the end of today I will not only be able to feel Your presence but to see as much of You as it is possible to. For Your Word says ‘Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God”. I ask, Father, that I will be found worthy.

Father, You are great. Power and the glory, victory and the majesty are all Yours; All that is in heaven and in earth is Yours; Yours is the kingdom and I exalt You as head over all.

1 Chronicles 29:11

One thing I have desired of You Most High God, is that I will continually seek You: dwell in Your presence always, behold Your beauty and seek and find You.

Psalm 27:4

Not by might, nor by power but by Your Spirit, LORD my God.

Zechariah 4:6

I pray that I will not be led into temptation. Deliver me from evil. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever.

Matthew 6:13

Abba Father, I pray all these things in the Mighty Name of Your Son Yeshua, who came and died on Calvary’s cross and rose on the third day, so that through Him I might have life and have it more abundantly

Amen

DEVOTIONAL PRAYER

Monday 17th August 2020

Abba Father, as I wake up on this day I ask that You forgive me of all sin and bless me completely. I thank You that I was created because You wanted me and not because You needed me. Help me to walk in faith, so I am able to do a great work for You, and I thank You, in advance, for the victory I will obtain. Help me to love others that have been placed on this earth with me. Help me to live as one that is victorious.

I call on You to give me strength and good courage, so that I will not be afraid, because You will neither leave nor forsake me. I thank You for being with me. I pray that I will always be able to feel Your presence.

In moments that I am weak grant me power and increase my strength whenever it is needed

When I run it is with the goal of winning and to obtain an imperishable crown

1 Corinthians 9:25

As I draw near to You, I know that You will draw near to me. I cleanse my hands and my heart to make myself worthy.

Sunday 16th August 2020

Abba Father, today, as You place this day before me, I request that You prepare me for ALL that I am to receive. My requests for this day are that You will forgive me of all sins; mental, physical and spiritual and where those sins dwelled I ask that the space is filled up with Your Holy Spirit. Today, my God, I ask that You fill my cup to an overflow and go before me into each situation that faces me in the week ahead.

I thank You for making the heavens and the earth for me. The Book of Genesis outlines how You brought them into existence by Your Words…….Such POWER have Your Words that You commanded everything into being by Your Spirit, saying “Let there be…….”. As the earth was dark and formless, I realise that so was I before You called me into Your presence. LORD God have Your way.
