Prayer of thanksgiving & power to be a child of God

Dear Heavenly Father,

Jesus said “..as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name, which were born, not of blood, nor the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.” (1)

Thank you for the power you have given me to become your child. Thank you that from deep within I am constantly transformed by the indwelling Holy Spirit because I believe in the matchless powerful name of Jesus. Father your word says that

“at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”(2)

I live to proclaim, praise and honour the life-giving name of Jesus.

Thank you that as one who believes in my heart that Jesus Christ is “The Messiah, Son of the Living God” (3) and with the knowledge of Christ, God’s divine power through the indwelling Holy Spirit of God gives me “All things that pertain to life and godliness…exceedingly great and precious promises” (4).

Through these promises, I am able to be a partaker of the divine nature as a new creation in Christ Jesus “born not of blood, nor the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.”(1)

Unto you I ascribe all the glory, the honour and praise forever and ever Amen!

The Man Child…Still

Commemorating Mental Health Awareness day (10/10/2018) a poem (inspired by the image below) and a prayer.

The Man Child …Still

The contours around

his eyes are cracked

with smile tracks.

They hide internal

frowns, a well-worn

mask.

Speaking to please,

he engages in many a

tiresome task for

accolades and praise.

Still, his inner man

hears the voices of dread,

feels dad’s hands hitting

his head. He wants to run,

but no where is there to hide.

So he fakes strength

and a life of fun.

Anything goes for

ecstasy and mirth.

Still, his inner child

dreads the break of day

sits cross-legged,

head buried as in sand,

wishing he would die or be

blown away.

Still…

Prayer:

Dear Heavenly Father,

I pray for those suffering a paralysis of mind and life in general, unable to move on due to hidden childhood scars rooted in abuse and rejection which has resulted in a scarred life; attitudes and acts that continue to be damaging to them and those around them.

Father you know what each of us has been through and goes through on a daily basis. We cannot hide anything from you.

I ask that you heal us in our inner man, and deliver us from pretence and falsehood so that our true selves, who you created us to be would emerge fully to the glory of your name.

For those who are yours in Christ, we desire to be effective witnesses of your kingdom so heal us completely so that we can do the good that we know to do according to your word.

I pray that you will graciously draw to yourself, multitudes who are suffering in general and particularly in relation to their mental health, that they will find healing and comfort in your word and the ministry of deliverance in the power of your Holy Spirit.

In Jesus name I pray, Amen.

Guarding our Mental Health for Effective Christian Living & Service

10th October is Mental Health Awareness Day (UK). Let us remember and pray for those with mental health issues this week as well as think of ways we can guard our minds practically from the “pull” of worldliness at every turn.

The mind-gate as the eye gate are Satan’s targets to bring temptation to us and doubt about God and who we are in Him! From these two channels our hearts (the innermost core of who we are) can become afflicted.

Let us be reminded of the following key scriptures:

-“Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.” (Romans 12:2 NLT)

-“Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life” (Proverbs 4:23 NLT)

Trapped!

Beaten against the bushels,

pained by worldly thorns,

trampled by passersby and

deceivers posing as friends,

her disheartened soul found

rest among the despondent

at their fest.

Their complaints cooked up

bitter broth when swallowed,

their chains were strengthened

in that dreadful place.

She longed to flee but how could

she when her feet were padlocked

to the guardian of death and his

cloak like steel weighed her down?

Think about this poem above entitled “Trapped”. It reminds us of the consequences of keeping the wrong company; in hard times, they remain agents of satanic reinforcement so that there is no where to escape!

Caution! The bible says do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. Can two walk together if they do not agree? (2 Corinthians 6:14-18).

Some things to think about:

-If we say we are Christ’s do our social lives truly reflect this fact?

-Do we seek the counsel of the ungodly?

The Word of God has all that we need for holiness and godliness and God is able to lead us to those who can counsel and help us in our decision-making and plans.

-Do we stay put in compromising situations and relationships to our detriment? If so why?

Fear of not fitting in or what people might say are some of the main reasons why people tend to do this.

But our Christian lives require sacrifice and separation from the world. If Jesus suffered, was persecuted and misunderstood how much more we, who are his?

Our mental health as believers in Christ should be important to us because we do not only receive healing, but we need to sustain our healing so as to be effective in our calling as Christ’s Ambassadors.

Let us say this day with the Apostle Paul as we boldly march on in Christ

“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.” (Gal 2:20 KJV).

THE FIRE OF THE LORD TO CONSUME, JUDGE AND EMPOWER

(Exhortation, Declaration & Prayer)

My prayer is that the Most High God, Adonai who is a consuming fire (Deut 9:3) will destroy all your enemies as He did for Israel in biblical times. May God’s tongue be as a devouring fire (Isaiah 30:27) to judge those who persecute and afflict you.

May God set you aflame by the fire of the Holy Ghost and may His Word be as a burning fire shut up in your bones (Jeremiah 20:9) so that you are a danger to the powers of darkness.

Demons will scream “……… is coming” (fill space with your name) and flee in all directions as you advance fully armed in His awesome power and glory.

If His Spirit like fire is as a hedge all around you and the armies of Yahweh Sabaoth (the Lord of the angelic hosts of Heaven) are fighting for you, who can withstand you?

“Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe, for our God is a consuming fire.” (Hebrews 12:29)

GO FORTH, PUSH THROUGH FOR YOU HAVE ALL IT TAKES!!

A Decree & Declaration / exhortation for you:

Father God,

With the authority invested in me through Christ Jesus, I decree and declare that your people those who are truly yours are coming out of every realm of confinement, of restriction and entering into spaciousness ” Rehoboth” you have planned for them their families, communities and nations.

It is time to push through, no holding back for you have all at your disposal “the tools”, the “know how” and anointing.

The strategies have already been planned before time, what is left is for you to ADVANCE and shake off all that is holding you back.

The keys of hades and hell, heaven and earth, the key to open a door that no man shuts you have; All the authority from Yeshua is given to you exercise it and if you trust Him, you will see prophecies come to fruition one by one and so your destiny shall unfold or continue to do so: GO FORTH, ADVANCE IN THE POWER OF HIS MIGHT!!!

18He said to them, “I saw Satan having fallen like lightning from heaven.19Behold, I give you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy. Nothing will in any way hurt you. (Luke 10:18-19KJV)

18Jesus came to them and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to me in heaven and on earth.

19Go, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit 20teaching them to observe all things that I commanded you. Behold, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.(Matthew 28:18-20))

A Godly Plea & Joyful Proclamation:

Father, let it no longer be said…

Father, let it no longer be said

“The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved.(1)”

Let them of every race and nation be gathered in for your set time is now!

Heaven rejoices when lives put to the test, pass and invest time to labour for the ingathering of many a neighbour.

Father, let it no longer be said

“The LORD hath utterly separated me from his people…Behold, I [am] a dry tree.”(2)

Let them of every race and nation hear your voice and break forth into rhapsodies of praise!

For the Jew and Gentile together are one in Christ and never “a dry tree” but a “well watered garden” drinking from the well of salvation. Out of their bellies flow rivers of living waters for the healing of many a nation.

Prayer

Father God you are the God of refuge.

May nothing remove genuine Christlike compassion from the hearts of your true children for the refugee and immigrant.

Preserve our minds and hearts that we do not become desensitised to what your word teaches us about loving one another, especially if we say we love you.

We agree that there is no justification for trampling underfoot and disrespecting human beings and families in the public sphere.

We who are truly yours are against inhumane and torturous behaviour against the vulnerable regardless of what they have done.

Have mercy on us and intervene quickly. Teach our leaders to rule with their hearts not only according to the law, we pray.

May mercy and kindness prevail!

In Jesus’ mighty name!
