Arise Most High God and let your enemies be scattered. As the wind is blown away so let your enemies flee from before you. As wax melts before the fire, so let your enemies be done away with, Almighty God.
Father, forgive us our iniquities and the sins we have committed against you. Sickness and death is on the rise, but because of the righteous in the land, have mercy on the whole world that we would not be consumed by the spirit of infirmity and death.
In Africa, Asia, Americas, Europe, Australia…. all the continents let your enemies be defeated! May the spirit of infirmity that abounds and the corona virus plague that is ravaging your creation be overcome, O Mighty God! The powers of oppression and control in nations are also on the rise in the midst of other afflictions. Come and deliver us Mighty One, as you did in times of old.
Open the eyes of our understanding that people will know in these challenging times that they are like grasshoppers and the flowers that are here today and gone tomorrow, for we are nothing without you, Most High God. May people hunger and thirst for you in this time, let their souls say “Yahweh is my salvation” and turn from their wicked ways.
Come as the consuming fire that you are.We cry for mercy, many are your people, young and old that are consumed by the spirit of infirmity and death in our day. As a Man of War come and deliver us, O Mighty One!
We are weak and have nowhere to turn, but to you. O God our Elohim, the one and only God!
“Unto you I lift up my eyes, O You who dwell in the heavens. Behold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their masters, as the eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress, so our eyes look to the LORD our God, until you have mercy on us…” (1)
You are the God we trust as our only healer and refuge. Thank you for hearing our prayer for you said that if the people who are called by your name will humble themselves, seek your face, turn from their wicked ways, you will hear from heaven, forgive our sins and heal our land.
In Yeshua’s mighty name we have prayed. Amen
Scriptural inspiration: Psalm 68, 2 Chronicles 6:14. Quote – Psalm 123:1-2
We live in the best of times (because God the Father is always with us) and the worst of times (so much affliction is upon us, even to the point of death ! e.g. Corona virus), so at all times we must be in prayer to God the Father, through Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ).
Prayer is communication with God. God has called us who are His to a life of prayer and in the busyness of life, it is important to remind ourselves of this every so often. In the New Testament scriptures, we are revealed the importance of prayer to Jesus Christ during his ministry. He used to frequently and consistently separate himself from the crowd and even his disciples and spend time alone with Father God. As we know there are different ways of praying to God. Prayer is not a specialised ministry only for some, so let’s ensure we make prayer a lifestyle, fervently, consistently and frequently as Jesus Christ did.
Jesus is always praying and gives us reasons to pray.
When we read about the ministry of Jesus (Yeshua), one thing that is clearly evident is how he taught so much about principles of the kingdom of God and effective kingdom living through having the right attitude and heart condition before God. He would teach with direct speech, use parables or illustrations.
A key point worth noting in relation to Jesus’ ministry is the fact that God cares very much about the life of a believer in Jesus Christ beyond their salvation and is determined to ensure that we fight the good fight of faith so as to be winners in His camp or that we overcome every obstacle through the finished work at Calvary by our precious Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
Jesus knew that the best way to reconcile mankind to God, even beyond salvation to a place of consistent intimacy was not only to teach about the principles and requirements of the kingdom of God but to engage with them in the area of prayer. Prayer is communication with God by true believers in Christ who have the Holy Spirit dwelling within.
The Holy Spirit is first and foremost the power of God. Without a life of communication with God in a fervent, consistent and frequent manner, the power to sustain victorious Christian living is impossible. We can have all the teaching of the Word possible but if we do not have a relationship with the source from whom we have the Word, then we are unable to grasp the meaning of the Word. A relationship with God in the power of the Holy Spirit is cultivated through prayer and enables the Holy Spirit to teach us and consistently remind us of the teachings of Jesus.
“26I am writing these things to warn you about those who want to lead you astray. 27But you have received the Holy Spirit and he lives within you, so you don’t need anyone to teach you what is true. For the Spirit teaches you everything you need to know, and what he teaches is true—it is not a lie. So just as he has taught you, remain in fellowship with Christ. (1 John 2:26-27 NLT).
“… when the Father sends the Advocate as my representative—that is, the Holy Spirit—he will teach you everything and will remind you of everything I have told you.(John 14:26 NLT).
Jesus was therefore determined that believers in him then and thereafter would
1) Understand the importance of having time away from all the noise and busyness of the world to be with Abba Father.
What did he do to be our perfect example in relation to this?
In Luke 5:16 we read “..Jesus often withdrew to the wilderness for prayer” (New Living Translation)
The New International Version of the bible states “..Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed”.
Also we read in Mark 1:35 “Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed.”
Based on how Jesus Christ prayed before his crucifixion revealed in the gospel of John (Chapter 17), we can conclude that when he isolated himself several times during his ministry to pray, he not only prayed for himself, but he often prayed for
2) Know how to pray effectively
“The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous availeth much” (James 5:16 KJV).
Jesus took it upon himself to teach his disciples to pray
-with the right heart or motives (Matt.5:5-8)
-using the basic format as a template that pleases the Father; (Matt.5:9-13)
When we pray, we are required to
3) Know that
What happened to confirm this? when Jesus retreated to the garden of Gethsemane he could have gone alone as it was the time just before the Roman Soldiers would appear with Judas to arrest him. However he did not retreat to pray on his own, he chose to ask Peter and the sons of Zebedee, namely James and John to watch and pray with him.
“36 Then Jesus went with them to the olive grove called Gethsemane, and he said, “Sit here while I go over there to pray.” 37 He took Peter and Zebedee’s two sons, James and John, and he became anguished and distressed. 38 He told them, “My soul is crushed with grief to the point of death. Stay here and keep watch with me.”
39 He went on a little farther and bowed with his face to the ground, praying, “My Father! If it is possible, let this cup of suffering be taken away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine.”40 Then he returned to the disciples and found them asleep. He said to Peter, “Couldn’t you watch with me even one hour? 41 Keep watch and pray, so that you will not give in to temptation. For the spirit is willing, but the body is weak!” Then Jesus left them a second time and prayed, “My Father! If this cup cannot be taken away unless I drink it, your will be done.” 43 When he returned to them again, he found them sleeping, for they couldn’t keep their eyes open. 44 So he went to pray a third time, saying the same things again.45 Then he came to the disciples and said, “Go ahead and sleep. Have your rest. But look—the time has come. The Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.46 Up, let’s be going. Look, my betrayer is here!” (Matt. 26:36-46NLT).
Jesus wanted his inner circle of disciples Peter, James and John with him at this time which was a period of intense spiritual warfare in the heavenly realm. Jesus knew that at that time of crisis with the hordes of hell mobilised greatly, it would be easy for them to give in to temptation such as denying they knew Jesus or reject him for fear of what people would think if they knew the disciples walked with Jesus. Therefore praying beforehand would strengthen the flesh so that it would be aligned to their willing spirit man. We know that some disciples fled after Jesus was arrested and Peter denied he knew Jesus.
Jesus knew that Peter would deny him three times and told him so (Luke 22:34), however prior to that Jesus had said to Peter (also called Simon):
“31 “Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift each of you like wheat. 32 But I have pleaded in prayer for you, Simon, that your faith should not fail. So when you have repented and turned to me again, strengthen your brothers.”(Luke 22:31-32 NLT)
Just pause and think of how when Jesus was having his one to one with Father in a solitary place he would speak to Father about his beloved disciples and especially pray for those such as Peter he had foreknowledge would undergo affliction for his sake. That was then, but similarly Brethren, Jesus who is now seated at the right hand of Father making intercession for you and I, asking God to deliver us from evil and temptation and to bring forth His plans and purposes in our lives.
Did Simon Peter overcome? Yes and he had a powerful ministry we read about in scripture as part of the early church apostles who were fearless preachers and miracle workers. We are also overcomers through Christ who loves us (Romans 8:37). If we have not yet seen breakthrough in certain areas of our lives, we must rest assured that it will come to pass for Father God is never late but His timing is perfect.
Jesus not only prayed for his disciples but he prayed “also for all who will ever believe in me through their message.
21 I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one—as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me.”
(John 17:20-21 NLT).
It was important to Jesus that there would be unity of all believers and with God and himself. This unity would be a testimony that Jesus was sent by God. Likewise we too must pray for the unity of believers under a mission statement founded on the Word of God. Division among other things does not glorify God nor does it render His kingdom attractive to the unsaved.
Brethren, we are given insight into the mystery and power of intercessory prayer because Jesus’ prayers in biblical times exemplified by John 17:20 is the reason why you and I are not only saved but we are being protected and sustained daily by the power of God. We are also more than conquerors (Romans 8:37) daily because Jesus is still making intercession for us, this time in his position as the Royal High Priest seated at the Right Hand of the Father (Romans 8:34/Eph. 8:1-6). We give him all the glory and praise!
This ought to give us assurance and hope that being a kingdom of priests seated in heavenly places with Christ, (Rev 1:6/Eph. 2:6) as we intercede for the unsaved in agreement with Jesus’ prayers, they too will be saved.
To God be the glory great things He has done!
The mantel of prayer
is a gift to you, disciple of Christ,
not to a specific priest so accept it
as a sword to wield in the battle field.
Let the flames of prayer be released
from within to set alight Satan’s plans
and to ignite the Word of truth in God’s sons.
Look to see and hear the LORD.
Sound the alarm at the enemy’s advance
upon man and with the armies of God
shoot the arrow at the hordes of hell as
a protector and defender of man.
As an impenetrable wall,
the LORD entreats that your prayer rain is released to fall
as fire and brimstone for the retreat of the armies of hell,
for He says
“The thief only comes to steal, kill, and destroy.
I came that they may have life, and may have it abundantly.”1
Forever seated in heavenly places
and in oneness with Spirit and Royal High Priest,
be a bridge for the crossing over into God’s turf,
a mother to carry the vision unto birth and
a midwife, for the bringing forth of God’s plans.
stand in unity on the Rock of Salvation,
your Foundation Stone who is Christ,
the Chief Cornerstone.

Holy Spirit We honour You!
I.A SUMMARY – WHO IS THE HOLY SPIRIT?
The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God and was sent by God at the request of Jesus. This is because Jesus knew he would no longer be physically present with his disciples, following his death, burial, resurrection and ascension to Father. He desired that anyone who believed in him would have the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of God dwelling in their hearts so that they will not be as orphans (without parents) in his physical absence (John 14:16/Acts 1:8/Acts 2).
The Holy Spirit is the power of God indwelling the believer in Jesus Christ and endows them with the anointing or power of God to be Christ-like and therefore able to live a life in reconciliation with God (Col 1:20), thus in essence being restored to the image of God in which human beings were created by Him (Genesis 1:26-27).
The Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth, reminds the believer of the teachings of Jesus (John 14:26) and therefore testifies of him (John 15:26-27). The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Prophecy; the testimony of Jesus (Rev 19:10), for Jesus embodies prophetic fulfillment. The Holy Spirit, who is Spirit of God, knows His thoughts and reveals them to mankind (1 Corinthians Chapter 2:9-12).
Thus the function of the Holy Spirit, also known as Spirit of Truth who guides believers into all truth (John 16:13) is the same as that of Christ Jesus in that he enables reconciliation of mankind to God.
The planting of God’s word in one’s heart therefore happens in this manner; A knowing of who Jesus and God are, is made possible by the Holy Spirit as the partaker of the New Covenant is constantly taught according to the Word of God and reminded of the teachings of Jesus. Inevitably this means the Word or scriptural truths are understood by revelation for those who are in fellowship with the Holy Spirit.
In the last days, the true worshipers will worship God in Spirit and in His truth as according to John 4:24. The era following the ascension of Jesus and the day of Pentecost when the Holy Spirit was poured mightily upon numerous people of different nationalities and races was the era of commencement of the Apostolic Prophetic church of the last days. Therefore the term ‘Last days’ is applied from that time and thereafter until the Second Coming of Jesus and Joel 2:28-30 KJV is being fulfilled:
II.DECLARING & PRAYING THE NINE-FOLD SPIRITUAL GIFTS, SEVEN-FOLD SPIRITS OF GOD (ATTRIBUTES OF CHRIST) AND THE NINE-FOLD FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT OVER YOUR LIFE.
Develop the art of declaring and praying for an impartation of the nine-fold spiritual gifts, seven-fold (attributes of Christ) Spirits of God and the nine-fold Fruit of the Spirit of God (listed below). If you feel you have all or some of them praise the LORD! but you can pray for an increased measure or to excel in them for God’s purposes. Be honest. Ask the Lord Jesus for He wants us to ask Him for our needs and believe we have received them when we ask (Phil.4:6-7, Mark 11:24).
Many believers in Jesus are conditioned to ask him for certain things and not others. I realised this about myself a long time ago; I developed the habit of asking for material things, basically things I wanted. However the Lord revealed to me that there were things I was not asking for which are actually things I need and were vital to my spiritual development into maturity. I began to realise that spending quality time praying for gifts of the Spirit and the fruit meant I was partnering with God in His sanctification process of my soul and the process would be accelerated because I was consciously partnering with Him. This delights the Lord!
The act of partnering with God for his purpose to come to pass in your life (starting with partnering to be more like Him through Christ and be spiritually empowered), is actually seeking first the kingdom of God which delights Him. The result? All things are added to us (Matthew 6:33). In other words God is able to bring to pass His predestined purposes for our lives. We receive all answers to our prayers according to God’s will. What does the bible say is the reward for delighting in God?
“Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart” (Psalm 37:4 KJV)
The beginning of the year is as the beginning of the day. As our attitude and mindset at the beginning of the day sets the course of the day, so too does our attitude and mindset at the beginning of the year sets the course of the year.
Remember God “is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us…” (Eph. 3:20 KJV)
And also that “eye hath not seen, nor ears heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed (them) unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.” (1 Corinth. 2:9-10)
It is therefore up to us to position ourselves to receive all that God has for us, and the first step is daily cultivating the attitude or mind-set that says “I am one with Father God through Christ Jesus” or “I am Christ-like”. Setting time aside to seek God’s face and pray fervently, even including fasting is vital to the sustenance of our “spiritual health” or Christian walk throughout the year.
Brethren, as you know the Holy Spirit is the means by whom we are transformed, so developing the habit of declaring and praying the nine-fold Spiritual gifts, seven-fold Spiritual attributes of Jesus Christ and the nine-fold Fruit (aspects of God’s nature) of the Holy Spirit over ourselves is indirectly declaring who you are and want to continue to be (a fruitful child of God) which is crucial to a sustained victorious Christian life.
It is proclaiming in the atmosphere who you are in allegiance with or who is the master over your life, identity and destiny. It is very powerful!
In my experience as I start praying or making these declarations, I sense the Holy Spirit who intercedes on our behalf literally taking over and the words and sentences formulated are clearly divinely inspired. This is not surprising because I am calling on the Holy Spirit and He comes!
What better time to start having one of the best habits in the world than at the beginning of the year?
1.The Nine-fold Gifts of the Spirit: (1 Corinth. 12: 1-31)
3.The Nine-fold Fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23)
Hallowed be your mighty name. Thank you for your grace and mercy bestowed upon us. We also give you thanks and praise for your powerful Holy Spirit within us working to fulfill your will in our lives. We humbly ask that you teach us how to effectively partner with your Spirit this year so that we will hear from you and know your will for our lives. In so doing, will be transformed and able to receive the fullness of our inheritance in Jesus Christ.
Forgive us when we have not been in fellowship with the Holy Spirit. Help us in our weakness. We trust you because you said in your word that your strength is made perfect in our weakness.
We also ask that you help us to remember that when we pray the Spiritual gifts (nine), seven Spirits of God and Fruit of the Spirit (nine) over our lives we will be empowered daily to live a fruitful Christ-like life and overcome the power of Satan and the lusts of the flesh.
Revive us daily by your Spirit, Oh LORD, as we surrender every area of our lives to you. In Jesus name Amen.
You are blessed, determine to stay blessed!

Father release me from the power of lack and mediocrity that keep excellence away and lead to paths of futility. The agents of failure barring your good and perfect gifts.
Father release me from the power of disobedience and haste, causing me to run away or ahead of you. Two self appointed enemies obstructing your good and perfect gifts.
Father release me from the power of self that is destructive and apart from you.
I ask for the power of your Spirit,
so that I can receive your good and perfect gifts to be productive and in oneness with you.
17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. (James 1:17 KJV)

Thank you Lord for blotting out (erasing, wiping slate clean) my sins and being a God of second chances. Every accursed ordinance written or spoken against me was nailed to the cross over 2000 years ago! Cursed was he (Jesus) who hang on a tree for me!!
Therefore no weapon formed against me will prosper and no tongue raised in condemnation against me will stand, this is my heritage as a child of God. I am more than a conqueror through him who loved me, Jesus Christ my Saviour and Lord Amen!
Holy Spirit we honour You!
As born again Christians we all have the Holy Spirit indwelling us, a life abiding in God is an exciting life in which the Holy Spirit manifests as God’s power and testifies of our creative God through our lives in all His functions. He is the Spirit of God and therefore God Himself for God is Spirit and they that worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and in truth (John 4:24).
As you can see the importance of the Holy Spirit in you, a born again believer cannot be under-estimated.
Seek God for your desired expressions of His Spirit within you. Most have never thought of doing so. What are your gifts and talents? How can the Holy Spirit assist you?
When you have a quiet time and have done your bible study, prayed and sang to the LORD, acknowledging the presence of the Holy Spirit, pause for a moment for the Holy Spirit may want to speak through you, praise or sing to God about His goodness or who He is through you.
For your encouragement as one called and chosen by God to carry His vision and purpose to be birthed for the glory of God, it is worth remembering the following biblical personalities who were also God’s instruments. As in their case, you also have the ability to prophecy, or be His vessel for uttering His words or will to bless others:
1.Elizabeth – when she heard Mary’s voice the baby (John the Baptist; a child conceived for the purposes of God) leapt in her womb and Elizabeth was full of the Holy Spirit (Luke 1:41), as a result
42she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed [art] thou among women, and blessed [is] the fruit of thy womb.43And whence [is] this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?…45And blessed [is] she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord. (Luke 1:4243,45)
2.Mary, pregnant with Jesus having visited Elizabeth and heard her speak under the unction of the Holy Spirit, was also given utterance by the Spirit to sing a prophetic song
unto God, glorifying Him for choosing her and His mighty works on earth (Luke 1: 46-55).
3.Zacharias, a High Priest and John the Baptist’s father, after his son’s birth was full of the Holy Ghost and prophesied
the destiny of Jesus Christ and that of John the Baptist (Luke 1:67-79).
As is confirmed by these biblical characters, when God chooses you as His, you become His instrument to conceive His plans and purposes as an anointed vessel of God, your lifestyle and words should therefore testify of who you are to God. You do not need to be a prophet to be a vessel of prophetic utterance by the LORD.
As a born again believer you have the Holy Spirit indwelling you and the more you fellowship with Him as one in Christ the more He will flow as “living waters” out of your “belly” (John 7:38).
At times the utterance will be straight forward prophecies as words to be written, songs or psalms to be sang and can be set to music. Whether written or sang they may also have poetic expression.
Always have your journal ready to write and even sound recorder to record. Be expectant and prepared to receive from the “living waters” or Holy Spirit flowing out of you as a believer in Jesus Christ, the “last Adam a Life giving Spirit” (1 Corinth. 15:45).
In addition we often think more of the Holy Spirit as a doer, One with many functions, which is true, but He is fundamentally the power of God. POWER! DUNAMIS! The Holy Spirit’s act of being powerful is rooted in His function as a helper. He brings forth tremendous and evident transformation of lives. How do you want to be transformed personally? How do you want your situation to be changed? All for God’s glory! It is only possible by abiding in the powerful Holy Spirit.
In this way you allow God to express Himself powerfully through you by
1. Using you for the sake of others – Holy Spirit will empower you and activate your giftings and callings. This is the life of God within you at work (Roman 8:11).
2. Teaching you His ways, so that you can teach others under the anointing of the Holy Spirit.
-You shall be a true teacher by the enabling of the Spirit of truth (another name for Holy Spirit), the anointing of God which teaches you. (1 John 2:27/John 8:32/John 16:13).
Therefore as Timothy you shall be taught to teach (2 Tim. 2:2).
You shall be someone multitudes can trust amidst false teachers in these last days before the coming of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
3. Imparting spiritual gifts (Romans 12:6-8, 1 Peter 4:10-11, 1 Corinth. 12:1-31, Eph. 4:11-16) and the fruit of the Spirit (Gal…) so that you live a Christlike life and able to do all things because we have God’s strength or power (Phil 4:13)
May we live a supernaturally natural life unto God through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ remembering that this is only possible when we are in daily fellowship with His powerful Holy Spirit.
Most High God, worthy of all honour and praise, I praise you for your goodness and miraculous works in all the earth and in my personal life.
I ask that as I live in fellowship with your Holy Spirit, you would activate praise in my heart whatever I am doing and wherever I am.
LORD, I also ask that I would burst forth into song at any given moment and opportunity. May your living waters flow through me so that I am given prophetic utterance to bless individuals, families, churches and nations.
Dear Father, I also pray for the expression of these utterances by your Spirit as new songs and psalms as well as direct prophecies that glorify you by bringing hope, encouragement and healing to multitudes.
This is my desire LORD as I live a worshipful life unto you. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
You are blessed, determine to stay blessed!

Prayer for guidance & direction
Dear Gracious Father
By wisdom you founded the earth and by understanding you established the heavens. Your word also says “blessed is the man that finds wisdom and gets understanding” and also that you are the giver of wisdom knowledge and understanding. They are more precious than silver, gold and rubies.
Our righteousness is as filthy rags and our schemes are worthless without your knowledge and how to apply them wisely. Your word also says that without you we can do nothing.
Who can know and understand your ways? Who can gain your wisdom except by your Holy Spirit who instructs us about your ways and reminds us of the teachings of Jesus Christ.
Father I pray that you would forgive us for making decisions without consulting you or seeking your counsel. I ask you to graciously deliver us from self motivated decisions and actions.
“Shew me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths.Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou [art] the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.”
I also pray that you would take control of every aspect of our lives and help us to direct our focus on that which concerns you. Help us to know and prioritise what you perceive as a priority and to do only what you instruct us to do, redeeming the time, for your coming is soon.
Father, help us in our weaknesses and come in all your might and power to make us a people ready for the coming of the Lord.
In Jesus’ mighty name I pray Amen.

Reality knocks… in the midst of the Church:
Reality knocks in the midst of the Church, in the house of the Saviour, the great Redeemer.
Who will open the blinds, rub their eyes and see what Reality has dug up and brought to the fore?
Reams of dreams await their unscrolling from hearts, paralysed.
Blind to the blessings ready for the picking, they wallow in self-pity, victimised.
Tending to wounded egos, their worth remains packaged within, enslaved.
Meant to be destiny pursuers, they remain still, crippled.
A quiver with strategies to aim at targets for breakthrough, discarded.
Who will answer the call of Reality at the door? Descend on bended knees and cry for help, extend the arm to mentor, be a friend willing to monitor and tutor ?
Who will listen and answer God’s call to be a solution; His ordained hands and feet for action ?
In the midst of the Church,
in the house of the Saviour,
the great Redeemer
where His people are
as perishing vapour. Reality knocks !
