Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 2/24/2017

Good morning Heavenly Father. Yes Lord, when everything seems scattered and out of sorts, it’s time to wait and just trust in You. Yes Lord, when our direction seems uncertain and our best laid plans are not materializing, it’s time to wait and just trust in You. Oh Lord, waiting is hard to do. At times our strength feels sapped and motivation is most difficult. We call upon you today in prayer asking that you renew our strength and direct our path helping us to prioritize our schedule. Open our eyes Lord, so we can see what’s really important to You and the Kingdom work here on earth. Help us to not get trapped in the mundane, doing the same thing over and over again, but not accomplishing your will. Help us, Oh Lord, to lift our eyes to heaven allowing you to show us our path forward bringing forth a great harvest of righteousness, making a real difference in our life and the life of others. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint” (Isaiah 40:31).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 2/23/2017

Good morning Holy and Righteous Father, we are so blessed to come into thy presence. Thank you Lord for putting within all your true children a tremendous desire for your coming. Although no one knows the exact hour or date of your return, we have all from the First Century felt and believed it to be soon, examining the signs and making preparation. We pray that your beloved children everywhere would not believe the lie that you have already come, for indeed your Word indicates that many will come claiming to be Jesus Christ to lead people astray. Open their eyes to the truth that every eye shall see your wondrous coming in the clouds as the heathen mourn for they will have no excuse for rejecting you. We pray, Oh Lord, that you continue to teach us how to make preparation for your coming from growing spiritually to sharing the gospel and everything else the Spirit leads. Help us to be ready for thy glorious return. We pray this in the Holy Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen” (Revelation 1:7: also see Matthew 24:30).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 2/21/2017

Good morning Heavenly Father, what a beautiful day you have given us. Thank you Lord for teaching us not to under value our worth and role in the Kingdom as it relates to the world. Although, we are not unaware of the enemy’s role to discredit us by rising up mockers and negative reports, we will not allow it to hinder your work here on earth. Yes Lord, we are also not unaware how the enemy will use others to introduce false teachings and meaningless debates to get us off message. We pray that the message that you have given to us in the beginning will always remain the same and not be altered by the pressures in the world to conform to their unrighteous standards. Here we stand, Oh Lord, we can do none other. It is your simple yet powerful message of hope that will change the heart of man, so let us never grow tired of delivering it in your Name. For we are convinced, until man’s heart is changed then all your beautiful laws and commandments will have little effect. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God. For I determined not to know anything among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified” (I Corinthians 2:1-2).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 2/20/2017

Holy Righteous Father we come humbly into your presence this morning seeking your comfort and continued direction. Please comfort us from all the pain and confusion in the world. All the negative and hateful things being said against one another hurts nearly as bad as the many diseases we must bear. Lead us, Oh Lord, to be a strong voice of love and respect for everyone we come into contact even if we don’t totally agree with their position. Lead us to always speak the truth in love without finding fault or making slanderous remarks with everyone we come into contact. On the other hand, when we hear these negative things coming from our media, where we have no personal contact, lead us not to spread their hateful message and false reports, because it will only add to the hurt and confusion in the world. Moreover, your Word has taught us to share a false report only makes us an unrighteous witness. Therefore, lead us, Oh Lord, to only share the truth in dignified reporting. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Thou shalt not raise a false report: put not thine hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness” (Exodus 23:1).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 2/19/2017

Good morning Heavenly Father we offer to you all the praise, honor, and glory that we can muster, for indeed you are worthy. Thank you Lord that you inhabit the praises of men, which is our sure defense against the enemy who wishes to fill our minds with evil thoughts and vain imaginations. We pray, Oh Lord, that you will not allow us to be troubled with evil dreams and wicked imaginings that brings us to the threshold of temptation. We pray that you will deliver us from the evil one who wants to trip us up by dwelling on evil temptation thus allowing it to become a desire, which after being dragged away and enticed gives birth to sin. We pray, Oh Lord, that you would deliver us from all debilitating diseases or the side effects caused by medications that would allow the enemy to cast temptation in our path. We know that you have great power, Oh Lord, to deliver us from every temptation caused by the enemy and our own evil thoughts if we would only immediately cast them out while offering you continuous praise and adoration. We pray this in the powerful Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen” (Matthew 6:13).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 2/18/2017

Good morning Heavenly Father. We enter our prayer closet this morning with heavy hearts, because many in our world today, even among believers, withhold the whole truth thinking it is best for others. We have seen this especially among the medical professionals of our day, who withhold vital information from their patients. Many others speak in half-truths looking to manipulate the outcome. We have seen this especially among the politicians of our day. We have even seen the withholding of the whole truth among believers for either seeking an unfair advantage, wishing to protect their untarnished character, or build themselves up. We pray that all people especially those who call upon the name of the Lord would always speak the whole truth and nothing but the truth, knowing that our conversation is seen by both man and by you. Help us, Oh Lord, to trust you with our character and position in life, knowing that speaking the truth is like the springs of fresh water to the soul and that lying begets more lying and the awful stagnate pollution to our soul. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds” (Colossians 3:9).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 2/17/2017

Good morning Heavenly Father how righteous and glorious are all your ways. We seek an audience with your holiness this morning asking that you search us to see if there be any unclean thing that we need to repent of as we enter into thy divine presence. Thank you Lord for your forgiveness, your matchless grace, and loving acceptance. We are yours forever more. We pray, Oh Lord, that you alone give us our marching orders every day. We are in your divine service. Give us the strength and wisdom, Oh Lord, to fulfill your orders even if we are mocked, ridiculed, or persecuted. Motivate and empower us in our weaknesses caused by many things, such as, emotional instability, old age, or health related issues. We desire to always give our best in honor of our King, for indeed we are true ambassadors of Christ representing the eternal Kingdom. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God” (II Corinthians 5:20).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 2/16/2017

Good morning Heavenly Father what a beautiful cold morning we have in Texas today. It’s good to be alive during this time when we know with all assurance that your coming is not far off. We see all the signs so clearly now and long to be in your perfect will. Keep us on the narrow path without going too far to the right or to the left, but in the center always focused on you and not the world. The more we focus on you high and lifted up, the more we see all in the world is simply an illusion, for all that’s on the surface is not truth, but a guise to lead the world astray. Many people are speaking out of both sides of their mouth giving the appearance they are speaking the truth. We pray humbly that your children will not be led astray and overcome by the enemy. Give them eyes to see and ears to hear for indeed the time is short. We pray this in the glorious Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen” (Revelation 22:20-21).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 2/15/2017

Good morning Heavenly Father. We pray that all Christians everywhere will unite under the banner of truth and righteousness. Lead them, Oh Lord, to embrace the fundamental doctrines of our faith that unites us as true followers of Christ. Let us come together as a strong united voice to take our stand against a confused and fractured world. We pray that all Christians everywhere would no longer allow denominational doctrines beyond the fundamental basics of our salvation separate us, making us a laughing stock to a divided world. Allow our strong voice of unity be heard around the world standing shoulder to shoulder against all other so called religions that seek our destruction. Lead us, Oh Lord, to stand together against all perversions in our society that seek to pollute our children and against the lawlessness that destroys our unborn children. We pray that you would unite all your children in brotherly love giving us a single powerful voice to bring about change. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace” (Ephesians 4:3, read Verses 1-6).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 2/14/2017

Good morning Heavenly Father. As we enter our prayer closet this morning we are mindful of all those who are suffering in the world. The weather patterns are shocking at best, but we take great comfort in knowing that you are in total control and nothing escapes your eye. We pray that all your children everywhere will be a beacon of hope for those who are suffering from these calamities, leading them to turn from their wickedness and trust in your providence. We pray that all people everywhere would stop blaming others, including the world leaders, for their problems and look at their own wickedness. Cause them, Oh Lord, to see their standing before a Holy and Righteous God so that their sins would be magnified, allowing thy Holy Spirit to bring great conviction upon their hearts. We pray that you would rescue those who are suffering from these calamities and give them hope for a new life in you, through repentance and faith. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ, Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father: To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen” (Galatians 1:3-5).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 2/13/2017

Good morning Heavenly Father. Forgive us, Oh Lord, if we have unintentionally put out the Spirit’s fire. Help us to be very careful with our thoughts knowing that any unwholesome thought can extinguish the Spirit’s fire leaving us to feel cold and quite alone from the warmth of thy holy presence. Guard our thoughts, Oh Lord, of vanity, pride, avarice, worldliness, and anything else that would quench the Spirit keeping us from hearing His blessed voice. We pray that we would never doubt the moving of thy Holy Spirit through His many wonderful gifts keeping us from experiencing your power and majesty here upon earth. On the other hand, lead us to fan into flame the gifts of God, which is in us through thy divine providence. We pray that all thy blessed children would use their Spiritual gifts to awaken the world of thy presence and mighty work. We pray this in the Holy Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Quench not the Spirit” (I Thessalonians 5:19).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 2/12/2017

Our Father who art in heaven hallowed be thy glorious Name. What joy it is to enter our prayer closet this morning and allow you to minister to our soul. As we are transfixed by your presence teach us, Oh Lord, to enjoy the moment and meditate deeply upon the verses that you bring forth from thy Holy Scripture through thy indwelling Spirit. Thank you Father for showing us the depth of your love that will bind the entire creation together as one with no division, no hate or any unrighteousness. We pray for that unity now amongst the true believers in Christ who have put off the old life and walking in the new. Bind them together as one demonstrating their love for one another without religious labels or human traditions that divide, but holding to the simple yet profound truths that unite us as one. Although this may be only a faithful remnant, strengthen us to be a formidable voice to a divided world. We pray this in the powerful Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me” (John 17:20-21).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 2/11/2017

Good morning Heavenly Father. In the midst of the rebellion, we pray for the faithful remnant to stand firm in their beliefs and not be overcome by the wiles of the devil. We pray that all Christians everywhere hold to the fundamental beliefs concerning their salvation. We pray that all are growing spiritually from one degree of glory to another putting off the old life and putting on the new. We pray that all are producing every manner of spiritual fruit by keeping in step with the indwelling Spirit. We pray that all are obedient to thy holy commandments as they are being written upon their hearts by the Holy Spirit. We pray that all are performing good works as they are being led by the indwelling Spirit to the glory of God. We pray that they would come out from among those who would lead them to accept everyone’s beliefs and practices in the evil spirit of globalization. Help them, Oh Lord, to stand firm in their beliefs even if faced with alienation or persecution. We pray this in the Holy Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it” (Matthew 7:13-14).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 2/10/2017

Good morning Heavenly Father. We pray, Oh Lord, that you continue to give us wisdom and discernment for the age in which we live. We don’t seek earthly wisdom, but heavenly wisdom from above to look beyond what our physical eyes can see to spiritual truth in the heavenly realm. Many find sounding arguments are made in our day to lead so many astray continually dividing and setting them against one another. We seek heavenly wisdom, which is first of all pure, divine truth with no mixture of error, then peaceable. For indeed the purity of divine truth changes the heart leading us to make peace with others without changing or diluting the truth that you have given us. Give us strength, Oh Lord, to stand firm proclaiming the truth with all peaceableness even as the world rails against us. We pray this in the powerful Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace” (James 3:17-18).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 2/9/2017

Holy Righteous Father we come again humbly before you seeking your wisdom and counsel, for we live in a world of confusion and hostility. We feel as though all the media outlets, including social media, are dragging everyone about seeking to conform them to the pattern of this world. Help us, Oh Lord, to break free and no longer be conformed to the pattern of this world, but to be transformed by the renewal of our minds. Let all our thoughts and actions be subject to your divine will instead of being pulled about by the world. Through the renewal of our minds allow us to see the good and perfect will for our lives, which takes a completely different direction from the world. Then give us strength and determination, Oh Lord, to follow that will even if we feel as though we are swimming upstream and against the current. We pray this in the glorious Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin” (James 4:17; also see Romans 12:1-2).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 2/8/2017

Holy Righteous Father we come humbly into our prayer closet this morning. We ask, Oh Lord, that you continue to write your laws upon our hearts through thy Holy Spirit. Bring conviction upon our hearts when we stray from one of thy blessed commandments. It is our utmost desire to walk as holy and righteous children in an unholy world to demonstrate our love for you. We are deeply grieved when people who are called by your Name act and speak like the world through their filthy language, falsehoods, and thefts. Help us, dear Lord, to always speak the truth in love and not be carried away by every idol gossip or conspiracy theory. Lead us to stay focused only on your eternal truth and obedient to all your beautiful commandments. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“If ye love me, keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever” (John 14:15-16).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 2/7/2017

Good morning Heavenly Father. As we enter our prayer closet this morning we are mindful of your many blessings. Although we may suffer from many things, from health-related issues to attacks upon our character by unbelievers, we know that nothing can separate us from your magnificent love. Your love just keeps filling our soul to overflowing allowing us to have a deeper appreciation for all that you have so graciously given us. Even the simple things like an early morning sunrise to the gentle cool breeze coming through our open window it gives us such great pleasure and somehow causes us to feel so much closer to you. Then there is the great joy and peace bestowed upon us by the indwelling Spirit that causes us to instantly forget all our pain and struggles while we bask once again in your loving care. One by one we begin to count our many blessings causing us to fall down in humble adoration and praise to you our Lord and Savior. Help us, Oh Lord, to never forget all our benefits and your all powerful unchanging love. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:38-39).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 2/6/2017

Good morning Heavenly Father. Help us to stay focused on you this week and what you want to accomplish in the Kingdom of God. The world is moving at breakneck speed casting a dark shadow over what you want to accomplish through your people. As we fall down in all humility, show us what’s really important as we make our plans, schedule our meetings, and speak out for you to a world that has all but stopped listening. Lead us not to waste our time doing the mundane or the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Give us an ear to hear what the Spirit is saying to the Church. Allow us to venture out on faith doing something different bringing greater results to thy Kingdom here on earth. We are the Church, your people, who serve the living God seeking to do your will in all things. We pray this in the glorious Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches” (Revelation 3:22).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 2/5/2017

Our Father who art in heaven how great and glorious is your Name. What a privilege it is to come every day into your presence allowing you to give us your joy and strengthening our faith in you. Indeed, we do have faith that you will bring this world to a close based on your prophetic timeline and not on fallen humanities. We pray, Oh Lord, that we will not get distracted by all that’s happening in the world right now, but run the race set before us keeping our eyes upon Jesus Christ the Author and Finisher of our faith. Help us to put off every distraction and besetting sin that keeps us from running in the race to win the prize. We pray, Oh Lord, that you show us the distractions and our besetting sins, those so called “little sins,” we refuse to depart with, but keep tripping us up and putting us on the sidelines. We know only by running the race can we continue to experience the joy and excitement we had in the beginning, so help us to run for our life. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us” (Hebrews 12:1).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 2/3/2017

Holy Righteous Father we come humbly into our prayer closet this morning seeking your counsel alone. Help us, Oh Lord, to know how to deal with people who constantly sow seeds of discord among the brethren, who always find fault, or see things that simply don’t exist. We know that you have called us to be one people in the faith so we always strive to that end by forgiving others, turning the other cheek, going the extra mile, and rebuking when necessary. We pray that our words of rebuke would always be seasoned with salt, meant to encourage, filled with heavenly wisdom, allowing our brother to see their besetting sin that so easily entangles. Above all lead us to do everything in love seeking to unite the brotherhood under the banner of Christ and His righteousness, obedient to all His commands. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me” (John 17:20-21).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 2/2/2017

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you Lord that all knowledge and wisdom resides with you. We believe that you alone are all knowing and trust in you to lead us into all truth with no mixture of error. We are so grieved that a news media once believed to always speak the truth has now in recent years purposely spread truth mixed with errors both in content and headlines. We pray, Oh Lord, that your children will not be caught up in this web of lies and deceit. Although most of this negative reporting is accepted by the masses, it is also followed as a legitimate way to report. We pray that your children, called by your Name, will not follow this evil methodology in reporting, but only speak and write the whole truth with no mixture of error. We pray that all your children would also be careful not to spread their malicious lies on the social media networks, but be harbingers of spreading only the truth. We humbly pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting” (Psalms 139:23-24).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 2/1/2017

Good morning Heavenly Father. We always long to be in the Spirit and draw closer to you for it is there we find so much joy and peace to start a new day. We cannot even imagine starting a day without you preparing our hearts for all that you want to accomplish in the course of a day. Although we know things do change, we are confident if we keep in step with the Spirit then we will have ministered to all whom you have chosen. We pray that we will see every opportunity and every open door that you give us to minister to others in love and good deeds. You have taught us, this can only be possible if we see everyone the way you do, without judging them on their looks, race, age or the amount of struggles they are going through. Help us, Oh Lord, to never be conceited, prideful, or to think of ourselves more highly than we ought so that our love will always be sincere. We pray this in the glorious Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit” (Galatians 5:25).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 1/31/2017

Good morning Heavenly Father, Holy and Righteous are all your ways. We enter our prayer closet early this morning grieved about all the obstruction being caused to our democracy. More than ever we need spiritual discernment to look beyond what the physical eyes can see into the spiritual realm. Allow us, Oh Lord, to see the spiritual powers of darkness and how they are moving a great portion of this nation to obstruct your righteous laws and lead a people into spiritual bondage and all manner of wickedness. Allow your great light to shine through your people called by your Name, causing all in bondage and being moved by the powers of darkness to see their deplorable condition. We pray that it will lead them to repentance. Help and encourage every Christian, Oh Lord, to take up the banner of truth and righteousness speaking boldly to the obstructionist before all is lost to a host of wickedness. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Ephesians 6:12).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 1/29/2017

Holy Righteous Father how wonderful are all your precious promises to your beloved children. We all experience some ups and downs in our lives on a planet that’s all but turned its back upon you, but we continue with great joy in our hearts believing in and realizing many of your blessed promises. Yes, Lord, our actions do validate or deny our faith in the promises. Help us, Oh Lord, to follow the promises with faith in our hearts validating and realizing them with the appropriate actions given to us through thy Holy Word. For instance, we all long for the promise of peace that defies understanding, so lead us, Oh Lord, to follow the admonitions in Scripture to rejoice always, be gentle to all remembering that you’re near, thankful in all things through prayer, and refusing to be anxious. Thank you Lord for this amazing peace realized during our greatest storms. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:7).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 1/28/2017

Good morning Gracious Heavenly Father the Mighty One who always bears with us. Forgive us, Oh Lord, for our transgressions against you and others, because we have not carefully followed the anointed Scripture. We have often, like many in our fast-paced world, spoken or written before getting all the facts. At times, we have also demonstrated our righteous anger or our negative bias based on faulty information, and for this too we humbly ask for your forgiveness. Teach us Lord to listen quickly by getting all the facts and slow to speak by taking the time necessary to listen to thy indwelling Spirit on what He says concerning the matter. Help us, Oh Lord, to always think before we speak or write for we know failure to do so could cause us to act unrighteously by displaying anger and negative bias, that will always hurt others. So once again, we humbly ask for your forgiveness in the Holy Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God” (James 1:19-20).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 1/27/2017

Good morning Heavenly Father how glorious is your Name in all the earth. We pray, Oh Lord, that you will give every Christian discernment, a gift so important in these last days. As the crowds form to take one position or another, help us to never be afraid to stand alone in our beliefs. Lead us, Oh Lord, to always listen to the voice and direction of thy indwelling Spirit, before we blindly follow the crowd. Help us to always discern their true intentions or their entire agenda before we march so proudly behind their ranks. Although none go with us, lead us to follow you alone my God and my Savior. Help us to pridefully hold up the banner of truth, righteousness and love in a world of lies, immorality and hate. Let us never join the ranks of those who hate those who are different, for those who refuse to follow the crowd, or for those who hate the unborn child. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat. Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it” (Matthew 7:13-14).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 1/26/2017

Our Father who art in heaven Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. As we enter our prayer closet this morning you have put it into our minds about how your will is followed in heaven. Surly this should be our goal for our life here on earth as you have taught us to pray. We pray, Oh Lord, that you would write your will upon our hearts through the reading of all your commands in the Holy Bible. Bring them to our memory through thy indwelling Spirit so we don’t follow our will or the will of the world, but your will alone. Lead us to always follow the whole counsel of your will and to not get stuck on just a few favorite things to follow while ignoring the rest. We pray that we would always demonstrate our submissiveness to you through obedience to all your beautiful commands. We pray this in Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 1/25/2017

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you Lord for being our reality. Especially in a time when many have lost all touch with what’s real. Many have simply gotten lost in their vain imagination and puffed up in false humility. We pray, Oh Lord, that you keep us from adding man made traditions and the principles of this world to our most holy worship and praise of You. Let it never be done in false humility to garner the praise of men, but let us come before thee with empty hands and a submissive heart in true humility. Lead us, Oh Lord, to always shut the door to our prayer closet so that our prayers are just between us, in secret, with no thought of projecting a false humility to others. Even as we pray for others let those prayers be done in secret allowing you to lead us in prayer, for you know their real needs much greater than our vain imagination puffed up in false humility. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Do not let anyone who delights in false humility and the worship of angels disqualify you. Such a person also goes into great detail about what they have seen; they are puffed up with idle notions by their unspiritual mind” (Colossians 2:18, NIV – please read Chapter Two)

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 1/24/2017

Good morning Heavenly Father. As we enter our prayer closet this morning we are reminded of a few hallmarks of Christianity: humility, honesty, and speaking the truth in love. Yet, in all honesty we all fall short of these lofty goals for every true believer in Christ. Help us to be cognitive of all that we say and do keeping us from lying or doing anything dishonest no matter how small of insignificant we determine it to be. Help us, Oh Lord, to also see that the slightest exaggeration is still a lie that builds pride and not humility. Show us the true path to humility by considering others better than ourselves and not to think of ourselves more highly than we ought. We pray, Oh Lord, that faith will always lead us to cast all our cares and concerns upon you knowing that you will lift us up in due time, becoming more than we could ever imagine. We pray this in the Name of our Blessed Savior Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you” (I Peter 5:6-7).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 1/23/2017

Good morning Heavenly Father. As we enter our prayer closet this morning we are mindful of our leaders we need to pray for daily. We are mindful that our new President Donald J. Trump is in need of prayer so that he can effectively govern this great country with honesty and a spirit of humility. We honestly don’t know of his true Spiritual condition, so we pray that you would allow him to see You high and lifted up and that Donald J. Trump would see his own righteousness as filthy rags in need of repentance, forgiveness, and salvation by your hand. We pray, O Lord, that you write your righteous laws upon his heart, that he would not sin against you. We pray that the Holy Spirit would convict him of every sin causing him to cry out to you for divine forgiveness. We pray, Oh Lord, that humility and not pride would become the hallmark of his new administration helping him to govern fairly and righteously for all the people. We pray that you would guard and protect Donald J. Trump and his entire family from all manner of evil. We pray this in the Holy Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty” (I Timothy 2:1-2).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 1/22/2017

As we enter our prayer closet this morning one wonders how to pray. So, we humbly fall prostrate before you, Oh Magnificent God of heaven and earth, asking for wisdom on how to open the eyes of so many who have been blinded by the talking heads on news media and the liberal professors in our colleges. Our hearts are grieved that so many are in captivity to the lies and gross immorality of our age. You have changed the leadership in our country, we ask that you now change the hearts and minds of the population. Raise up an army of witnesses proclaiming only the truth, with no mixture of error, to set the captives free. Teach your children, Oh Lord, to preach against the sin, but more importantly to also offer the glorious new life in You through the timeless Gospel of Jesus Christ. We pray that You lead every Christian to plead with everyone they know, for its far better to receive life rather than death and eternal damnation. We pray this in the blessed Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, if ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:31-32).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 1/21/2017

Holy Righteous Father our hearts are filled with joy as we enter our prayer closet this morning. We believe that history is changing right before our eyes casting the world into a completely different direction. For the first time in a very long time things will be called what they really are and everything that seeks to divide and destroy will be exposed. We pray, oh Lord, that all who would seek to divide and destroy would be put into their place by removing all coverage of their evil acts from both the media and social networks. We know only through unity can your prophetic timeline culminate in the soon appearance of our blessed Savior and Lord Jesus Christ from heaven. Amen We pray that you protect and continue to lead our new President Donald J. Trump and his entire staff to accomplish your will to fulfill the prophetic destiny. We pray this in the powerful Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, see thou do it not: I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy” (Revelation 19:10).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 1/19/2017

Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Grant us peace today as we seek thy will in serving you in the ministry. Indeed, we are all in the ministry commissioned by you in the beginning of our new life in you. Lead us always to speak the truth in love being true ambassadors for Christ. Help us to spend our time wisely making the most of every opportunity and every open door that you give us, to speak as your representative never for our own gain, but what’s best for others. Give us ears to hear, oh Lord, what is truly best for others, not from our limited knowledge, but from thy divine resources given to us by the indwelling Spirit at the moment we need them. Praise God. What a joy it is to see you, oh Lord, working and speaking through us to change the lives of others for your glory. There is no greater joy than to see people humbly seek thy saving grace and then grow spiritually from one degree of glory to another. Thank you Lord for allowing us to participate in this great work that you have called every true believer in Christ. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen (Matthew 28:19-20).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 1/18/2017

Good morning Heavenly Father the One who knows our inner most thoughts. We come humbly and broken once again into thy holy presence. When you put thoughts into our minds and then confirm them through thy Holy Spirit it brings joy that you are speaking to us, but it can also bring terror casting us to the floor in humble submission and adoration. The words you gave are, “If I was Satan, I would win the hearts and minds of God’s children first, then the rest of fallen humanity will come in their time.” If we believe these words, then we plead for great discernment to know if we are being led astray and courage to proclaim the truth even if it falls on deaf ears. Indeed, we are at a turning point in history where things will never be the same, so give us physical and spiritual strength to face each day. Continue, oh Lord, to fill us to overflowing with your great love and mercy. We humbly pray this in the powerful Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations” (Revelation 13:7).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 1/16/2017

Good morning Holy and Righteous Father. We are so happy to finally make it into our prayer closet today. We cannot know the future and probably would not want to know the personal details of our lives for we are sure that they might cause us untold grief. We are blessed that you have promised to be with us in our life’s journey one step at a time, to never leave us or forsake us. Praise God. We never really know what the day is going to bring, but we can take great joy and confidence that you are with us. We pray that we will not be anxious about tomorrow, but take every day, every hour, and every moment to stay focused on you and your abiding presence. Help us, we pray, to keep in step with thy Holy Spirit allowing Him to always lead and guide us along life’s narrow way, one step at a time. In so doing you have taught us to enjoy every moment of every day, keeping our minds free from past or future worries. We pray this in the glorious Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit” (Galatians 5:25, NIV).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 1/15/2017

Good morning Heavenly Father. We humbly come into our prayer closet today praising you for your goodness and mercy. We want to thank you for Spiritual eyes that can see and interpret the times in which we live. While most look at the physical things that are happening in this country and around the world drawing their conclusions and making their predictions, it is only your children who have been given true spiritual insight. We praise and worship you alone for your gift of spiritual discernment, but also for its terrifying responsibility to speak and write as you direct even in the face of violent opposition. Give all your children, oh Lord, courage and strength to speak and write boldly as they should. Although many of your children see and understand, very few have the courage or confidence to speak out, for fear of intimidation or being mocked. Give all your children ears to hear what the Spirit says to the Churches and then motivate them to speak and not be led about like defenseless sheep. We pray this in the glorious Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak. For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you” (Matthew 10:19-20).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 1/14/2017

Good morning Holy Righteous Father. As we enter our prayer closet today we are mindful of the importance of speaking only the truth, for indeed it is the one thing that separates us from the old life of sin more than anything. As the devil is the father of lies we know that our God is the Author of truth and righteousness. We pray, oh Lord, that you continue to convict us that purposely leaving out vital information or facts is not speaking the whole truth. Convict us, oh Lord, that by adding unverifiable facts, especially for the purpose of exaggeration, is a lie and should not be spoken by your children as the whole truth. You know how difficult this is for some of your children who come out of a life of lies, exaggerations, and deception, so we not only pray for your continued conviction, but also for your grace and mercy as they struggle to live the new life in Christ, always speaking the whole truth with no mixture of error. We pray this in the Holy Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it” (John 8:44).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 1/13/2017

Good morning Heavenly Father, the One who holds us in the palm of your mighty hand. As fear levels are reaching an all-time high due to many factors, such as trusting that a new world leader doesn’t drive America off a cliff, the uncertainty in the rise of Eastern powers, continuing relentless weather, Friday the 13th, and a full moon, to name just a few, we pray that your children not be alarmed. Help all your beloved children to stand firm in their faith believing that nothing can separate us from your magnificent love and providential care. We are all versed well in the prophetic timeline and should not be unsettled in recent events or events that may happen in the future. We pray, oh Lord, that our trust in you alone will continue to grow and become even more resolute. We pray that your mighty love will cast out all fear of thy precious children by leading us to love more, even beyond measure, perfecting our love. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love” (I John 4:18).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 1/12/2017

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank God, you are not just a figment of our imagination, but more real than life itself. Thank you Lord for giving us the gift of thy Holy Spirit, the living seal, and guarantee of your abiding presence, and the fulfillment of all thy wonderful promises. No longer are we left alone to face the many trials and Tribulations in the world. No longer must we suffer alone when contracting a disease, sickness, or the bewildering effects of old age, but you are right here with us putting joy in our hearts and a smile on our face. Praise God. In the midst of the storm you are right here with us, holding us in the palm of your hand, leading us to proclaim to the world your message of salvation and the promised gift of thy Holy Spirit, your eternal presence with us. We pray that we will always be thankful no matter how fierce the storm becomes, allowing us an opportunity to testify of your love and confidence that we have in you, which is truly music to our ears. We pray this joyfully in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God; Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts” (II Corinthians 1:21-22).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 1/11/2017

Good morning Heavenly Father, we bless thy holy name. You know that the world, especially as we draw closer to the end, can be a very stressful place even for your blessed children, because of the incompetence or the shirking of responsibility of many. Although our loved ones may be adversely affected by this incompetence or lack of responsibility, we pray that you give us the patience to go the extra mile while continuing to hold them accountable. We pray, oh Lord, that the demonstration of our love would not be diminished in the least. Teach us again the importance of trusting you, not only for ourselves, but for the care of our loved ones. Also, remind us again, dear Lord, that the power of forgiveness will truly reduce stress as we wait upon you to render your justice and protect all your beloved children. We humbly pray this in the powerful Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven” (Matthew 18:21-22).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 1/10/2017

Good Morning Heavenly Father. As we enter our prayer closet this morning we are anxious to have a conversation with you. Nothing in the world is more important than communicating with you, oh Lord, and receiving your Words of life and direction. How can we start another day without them, is but a fleeting memory? How can anyone boast about weakness? Especially in a world that shuns weakness and takes such great pride in strength, allow us to see thy wisdom. Lead us, oh Lord, to embrace this weakness. We pray that you teach us daily how to become nothing so that you can become everything in us. Teach us die to self as Christ is being formed up within us. Yes, Lord we are beginning to see that are weakness is great gain, a matter of boast, if we can proclaim that it is no longer I that live, but Christ that lives within me. Praise God. So along with the ancients, the true saints of God, we gladly boast of our weakness. We humbly pray this in the glorious Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“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” (Galatians 2:20).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 1/8/2017

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Often times we may feel as if our mortal bodies are wasting away through disease, sickness, or simply old age, but we have the assurance that you are renewing our spirit day by day. Praise God. We pray that you help us to continue that upward calling in Christ Jesus our Lord by putting off the old life and putting on the new. Let us not be entrapped once again to the bondages of this world through its entertainment and lifeless social media, but lead us, oh Lord, to spend our time in total service to you, through our spiritual service to others. Allow thy Holy Spirit to continue its work in us through our meditative prayers and study of thy Holy Word, which always leads us to do thy will and not ours. We pray our focus will always be on our eternal glory and not our momentary afflictions. We pray this in the blessed Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day” (II Corinthians 4:16).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 1/7/2017

Good morning Heavenly Father. Today we want to express our deepest and most sincere love for you, knowing that all we have become and yet to be is your doing. We must admit it’s not easy to understand why we Christians have such a great love for our God. Every day it seems to get stronger and stronger as it flows out of the depth of our hearts and returns back to you. We know somehow it was you, who put this love for you in our hearts allowing it to grow beyond measure. Although we have learned that we simply cannot out love you, we have seen the more we love you, the more we feel your great love flow back to us. Praise God. Our love for you is proven in the many times you have so wonderfully worked all things together for good. Our love for you is proved by the many times that we have not allowed ourselves to be sidetracked by the world or overcome by the power of sin. Praise God. We lovingly pray this in the glorious Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 1/6/2017

Good morning Heavenly Father. On this cold frigid morning, we long for the warmth of your love. We desire true spiritual wisdom to discern all that’s going on in the world. As a great game of chess on the world stage is being played out, what we can see is many ideological pieces being moved quickly into place to take this nation and the world in a completely different direction. We pray, oh Lord, that this new direction will not blind thy holy people of the world’s true intentions to follow the prophetic timeline by turning her people away from her one true God. Help us to stay awake Spirituality in the coming weeks and months so we are not swept away by the coming deception, but will be among the first to see and sound the alarm among thy people. We put all our trust and faith in you alone as we face our tomorrows. We pray this in the Holy Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief” (I Thessalonians 5:3-4).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 1/5/2017

Good morning Heavenly Father. We honor your Name above all names as we humbly come into thy presence. Thank you for the talents and Spiritual gifts that you have so graciously given to each and every child of yours made new in Christ. It is you who has placed them exactly where they need to be among thy holy people for their mutual benefit for all. So, we pray, oh Lord, that we not neglect the Spiritual gifts and talents that each of has been given. Help us to identify our unique Spiritual gifts and talents and start using them immediately to the glory of God. We pray, oh Lord, that others in the Kingdom would either confirm or deny our Spiritual gifts and talents based upon their effectiveness and the use of their spiritual insight to validate. Help us to never bury our talent or deny our Spiritual gifts to the detriment of ourselves and our fellow believers. We pray this in the glorious Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant.” (I Corinthians 12:1).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 1/4/2017

We happily come into our prayer closet this morning for indeed it is our life line in a confused and hurting world. There is no need to tell us that we should pray unceasingly, for you have taught us the great advantage of a meditative prayer life that overcomes every spiritual, emotional or psychological problem. As we come into thy holy presence we can’t help from being thankful for everything, even if we have not the world’s goods and services. We have you, which is a far greater thing. The stress is dissipated, worries are erased, guilt is forgiven, and fear is driven away by your great love as we bend to pray. Praise God. All this worldly trauma coming at us at the speed of light is exchanged for a peace thy defies understanding as we come wholly into thy glorious presence. Praise God. Even in our worst trials and tribulations, we pray that it never robs us of our meditative prayers to you seeking your continued peace and guidance. We pray this in the glorious Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. Quench not the Spirit” (I Thessalonians 5:16-19).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 1/3/2017

Good Morning Heavenly Father. We would really like to make America, our home, great again, yet we feel many misunderstand what that means. Pride continues to reign uninterrupted as it promises a glorious future with economic fairness and stability; a stronger and more robust military to protect us, and a health care plan that’s affordable for all. There are many things to get excited about especially the possibility of peace in Israel. But now you have awakened us, oh Lord, that real greatness will not come as long as we allow our national sins to continue and prosper. We are grieved that in our march toward greatness that a blind eye has once again ignored this scourge upon our land. The homosexual minority continues unabated setting its agenda for the rest to follow while the continuing slaughter of unborn children in the millions slip into the night unnoticed. We pray, oh Lord, that you awaken this nation of its national sin before it’s too late to stop thy wrath from consuming this land. We pray this in the powerful Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities” (Revelation 18:4-5).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 12/31/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father, we so long to be in your presence, One who is abounding in peace. In a world with little peace, because so many have turned away from you and sought to live life on their own, it has caused great difficulties for them and society. We pray, oh Lord, that this coming new year that all people of every nation would see that true peace can only be found in you. You have so graciously taught us that peace with you, through faith in Christ, is essential if we desire real peace within ourselves and peace with our fellow man. Thank you, oh Lord, for this heavenly peace that calms our spirit on a calamitous day; that keeps us calm in difficult relationships; and, always opens our eyes to the path forward. Praise God. Help us to continually walk in thy peace being thankful in all things believing that you always have our best interests at heart. Gainsayers may call it wishful thinking, we call it faith. We pray this in the glorious Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6-7).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 12/30/2016

Good Morning Righteous and Loving Father, the One who knows everything about us. We come once again as your pupil asking you to teach us what we should know and do, how we should speak and act. We are so grieved in the spirit, because we live in a world where everyone is speaking, but almost no one is listening. This has become so difficult for even thy blessed children who have fallen into the trap of the world by only expressing themselves on social media or allowing their cellphones to become a physical barrier in their interpersonal relationships. We pray, oh Lord, that you teach us how to listen by looking beyond the spoken or even written words to see the suffering heart of others. You have graciously taught us how to read body language, but we still have difficulty reading between the lines in written communication. Help us, oh Lord, for we truly desire to be a minister and servant to all. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath” (James 1:19).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 12/29/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for all of life. Not only for our life and the life of humanity, but all life that you so miraculously created. It all belongs to you, but given to us for our benefit and enjoyment. We pray today and every day that we will never forget our responsibility to care for and nurture all life, everything that has breath, that’s been given to us by your grace and mercy. We pray also, that as your beloved children that we would set an example in caring for this beautiful home that you have so graciously given to us that sits as a jewel amongst the many planets in the universe. Help us, oh Lord, to truly love and respect all life upon this planet allowing it to bloom forth becoming all you’ve intended it to be for your eternal glory. We pray this in the loving Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth” (Revelation 11:18).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 12/28/2016

Holy Righteous Father we come humbly before you this morning seeking an audience. As we face another year there is so much uncertainty, yet at the same time we feel confident that you are in control of all that’s about to happen. In our inner-most being we desire to do your will, especially during this time, as the world blindly launches into the future with most unaware of what lies on the horizon. Lead us, oh Lord, to only proclaim your message to a dying world and not ours. Even if it falls on deaf ears, ridiculed or mocked, continue to give us courage to speak. For indeed we are your witnesses of things to come and feel honored to add our voice to those whom you have called in this last hour to open the eyes of the blind; to give courage to the faint hearted, and strength to rebuke the gainsayers. Thank you, oh Lord, for the love you have put into our hearts to accomplish your will on earth as it is in heaven. We pray this in the powerful Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd” (Matthew 9:36).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 12/23/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father. As we enter our prayer closet today we have many thoughts of your people interacting with others at this time of the year. The evil will always eventually show itself as we are led by the indwelling Spirit, but teach us, oh Lord, to look for the good. If it exists then teach us to bring it out and embrace it to the glory of God. At this time of the year many of us will meet and spend time with family and friends who are not yet made into a new creation and their thinking is tarnished by the world. Help us, oh Lord, not to be judgmental, but express sincere love demonstrating our goodness and kindness, bearing with them always, praying in the Spirit that we might speak the words of life, in order to open their eyes. We pray, oh Lord, that you would teach us to use our specific and unique Spiritual gifts as we interact with others so that the body of Christ would truly be built up to magnify your righteousness to an evil world overcome by the power of sin. We love this time of the year, because it puts us in memory of your blessed birth to bring salvation to humanity. So, help us to never get caught up in the trappings of the secular holidays of gift buying for the purpose of receiving in kind. Indeed, it is better to give of ourselves than to receive. We pray this in the Holy Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive” (Acts 20:35).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 12/20/2016

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for being the one true God of the universe who never changes. In whose expectations never change, in whom His Marvelous Ways never change. We take great comfort in your unchangeableness in the midst of our lives, that are in constant change from the pressures of the world and the frailties of our sinful bodies. We take comfort, oh Lord, even when the great leaders of our fallen world make great pronouncements of change that nothing will ultimately change from your timeline established by your prophetic Word. We do take great joy in knowing that no matter how bad external things seem to be, inwardly we are changing, growing from one degree of glory to another to be more like our risen Savior, Jesus Christ our Lord. We pray, dear Lord, that instead of growing bitter or hard, that we would continue to grow sweeter and more loving even in the midst of our greatest trials. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever” (Hebrews 13:8).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 12/17/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father. We come ever so humbly into your presence asking that you guide our every footstep and especially our thinking. Help us, oh Lord, to think rightly about everything. We have seen how false thinking has led the world into its present dilemma, where they no longer serve you, but their own selfish desires while giving you lip service. We admit, oh Lord, that we are powerless to make any real difference in the world as long as we allow it to keep guiding our thinking through its supposed knowledge coming at us, at the speed of light. So, we fall down before you alone, asking you to give us what’s needed, free from the false knowledge in the world perpetuated as the truth. Give us your heavenly wisdom, oh Lord, to think rightly. Give us our daily bread. We pray this in the powerful Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God” (I Corinthians 3:18,19a).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 12/16/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father, what a joy it is to come into our prayer closet. We have so much to be thankful for, especially at this time of the year when we are reminded of the birth of your precious Son to bring salvation to humanity. It does not have to be the exact date, although we may be close or far away, the point is we are celebrating the precious gift to humanity. Help us, oh Lord, to remember all the wonderful things that you did for us this year. Help us to never forget our benefits and all the great promises that you will fulfill. If we are alone this year or with many friends and family we know somehow that we are not completely alone, but we have the indwelling Spirit that comforts our soul and causes us to rejoice so greatly in You. We pray, dear Lord, that you give us an opportunity this Christmas season to do more than just purchase a gift, but to provide a kind act of love to someone we don’t even know to the glory of God. Thank you, Jesus, for loving us. We pray this in the glorious Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger” (Luke 2:10-12).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 12/9/2016

As we enter our prayer closet this morning we are mindful of your great power to do as you please. We are thankful, oh Lord, that your utmost desire is to create life everlasting, to experience all the joys and fellowship with their God. In the vastness of space, we will enjoy your presence in our heavenly home protected from all that would harm. Even in our present reality you protect us from the many unseen evils that seek to destroy. Thank you, oh Lord, for opening our eyes and exposing that which seeks our captivity and planned demise. Give us strength, oh Lord, to reject everything that would captivate, by putting our trust in you alone. Although we may suffer for a time in this evil environment we will be free. Although we may see little light in a dark world being overcome by evil, we experience the joy of the inner light given to us that will never be extinguished. Thank you Father of lights for this wonderful gift. We pray this in the Name of your beloved Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“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).

Prayers by Rev. Daniel W. Blair 12/06/2016

Heavenly Father we bow our knees before you seeking an audience with your holiness. Cleanse our hearts, oh Lord, make them whiter than snow. We pray that you would make our hearts pure, oh Lord, we want to see God. We humbly pray that you will lead us to the Heavenly Temple so that we can see the face of God and hear His Mighty voice. We grow weary, oh Lord, listening to all the lies and half-truths of fallen humanity. We are deeply saddened that even some who are called by your name still allow the world to integrate their thinking and then proclaim it as the gospel truth. We don’t want to join them as just another voice in the choir of lying confusion, but we desire above all things to only speak what we hear from you. So, teach us to wait upon you, oh Lord, and not be unsettled by time schedules. We pray that your marvelous voice spoken through your servants will bring deep conviction to a word who has rejected your narrow Way and has forged ahead building a wide path to accommodate all their various ways. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in there at: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it” (Matthew 7:13-14).

Morning Prayer 12/4/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father, Creator of all that exists. We come ever so humbly before your Majesty and prostrate ourselves before thee. We acknowledge that spiritual pride for those beautiful insights given to us will always exact a heavy toll in order to keep us humble. As seen previously we cannot and must not think that we can pridefully conger up enough faith to force you to do something against thy holy will. For all that we have and all that we are comes by way of your unmerited favor so graciously given to us. To get puffed up in our own intelligence, spiritual insight, and ability will not only allow the messenger of Satan to inflict his woes upon us, but will cause us to more deeply depend upon you for all things. We pray that we will always be careful to give you the glory for all that we seek to accomplish in your service. We pray this in the glorious Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure” (II Corinthians 12:7).

Morning Prayer 12/3/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father hallowed be thy Name. It’s always good to come into our prayer closet and have a two-way conversation with you alone. Thank you, oh Lord, for always listening to our prayers in the Spirit. We know at times you may not give us what we request, but you allow us to keep asking in faith. Forgive those, oh Lord, who try to forcefully move you through what is being called, “name it and claim it.” Forgive those, oh Lord, who try to forcefully move you by getting hundreds, perhaps thousands on their “prayer chain.” We know dear Lord that every prayer made in the spirit of submission and humility does move you to bow down and listen to your servant giving us peace in the midst of our greatest trial, for giving us joy when everything feels bleak, and giving us your presence when we feel all alone. Have you answered our prayers? Yes, many times we have witnessed the miracle of healing or the deliverance of Satanic oppression, but in each case this was your choice, not ours. Nevertheless, we always pray in faith believing that you alone have power to move mountains according to your will, not ours. Thank you for teaching us that in every situation that your grace is sufficient. We pray this in the powerful Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me. And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore, I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong” (II Corinthians 12:8-10).

Morning Prayer 12/2/2016

Good morning Righteous and Holy Father we come crawling to you admitting that we never experienced real pain before. We counseled and encouraged thousands upon thousands of people, but never realized the extent of pain and its effects upon the psyche. Thank you, oh Lord, for showing us first hand. Use this time of extreme pain to teach us to have even more empathy and understanding for those who suffer greatly. Thank you, Lord, that through all this pain our theology has not changed. We still trust in you alone to bring the healing and will continue to refuse drug intervention that only addresses the symptoms and not the cure. Help us always to stand firm against the enemy not only for our sake, but for the sake of others in the same battle. Truly, the battle belongs to the Lord. Help us, oh Lord, to always make wise medical decisions and to be a strong witness to those who care for us. We humbly pray this in the powerful Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God” (II Corinthians 1:3-4).

Morning Prayer 12/1/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father. Help us to never miss the hand of the Lord. When you bring forth a wonderful and powerful miracle lead us to never contribute it to chance or the workings of mere man. On the other hand, let us embrace it for what it is, a true miracle from the living God. Amen. So why should we not expect a miracle, is God not able? Is He not able to flush the disease from our system through night sweats? Is He not able to cure our emotional and psychological problems through the counsel of His blessed Word? Yes, Lord, we cry from the highest mountain that you are able. Our blankets are covered with tears from receiving your gracious unmerited favor to those who put their trust in you alone. Praise God. Thank you Lord for all your benefits. We happily offer this prayer up to you in the precious Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“For they considered not the miracle of the loaves: for their heart was hardened” (Mark 6:52).

Morning Prayer 11/30/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father. Every day and every hour we live only for you. Not sure anymore what life would be like without you. Although we might be mocked and put down; although we may need to suffer greatly, we want no other life than the one we have anew in your Son Jesus Christ. We pray today that you will always show us how to remain faithful to you alone. We pray, oh Lord, that everything in the world that seeks our allegiance and trust would be manifested to us. We pray that it will be visible for all your precious children to see. We can support others and even allow them to lead, but we put our trust in you alone. We can allow others to help us or we may be given the allusion that they’re helping us, but we pray that it does not become a trap leading us to transfer our trust to anyone other than you alone. Father God show all your children how to remain faithful to Jesus. We pray this in the Holy Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“This calls for patient endurance on the part of the saints who obey God’s commandments and remain faithful to Jesus” (Revelation 14:12, NIV).

Morning Prayer 11/29/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father. It’s so sad, oh Lord, to live amongst a people that has all but rejected you and your miraculous dealings with humanity and the world. Even many of your children give lip service that you are in control, but then immediately make every decision using their own power and intellect. They no longer wait upon you or seek your counsel. When they rush ahead as if you didn’t even exist they are broadcasting to an unbelieving world that you are mute and powerless. They are indicating with their actions that you no longer providentially care for your children or involved in the affairs of mankind. Forgive us, oh Lord, if we have ever been counted among that number. Help us to live as if you are in control by not being alarmed at what happens in our life, but using its lessons for our spiritual growth and consciously seeking your counsel in all matters. We pray this in the powerful Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will: That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ” (Ephesians 1:11-12).

Morning Prayer 11/28/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father, holy and righteous are all your ways. We praise you, oh Lord, that you have not changed. Your Words are always the same. It is only unrighteous man who keeps changing the interpretation of your beautiful words of truth to serve his benefit; to prove his own doctrine of deception. We find this also among the world leaders, who promise one thing and then do something entirely different. Or they mix their words as a ruse to deceive their followers. We pray, oh Lord, that you will open the eyes of your blessed children to keep them from being taken captive by fine sounding arguments or empty promises made by both religious and political leaders. We pray this in the Righteous Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil” (Matthew 5:37).

Morning Prayer 11/27/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father. We come early into our prayer closet this morning with heavy hearts for our young people of this great nation and the world. Even many of your people who are called by your name have joined with them and have sat in the counsel of the wicked. We are deeply grieved that they have so readily accepted the lies taught by their professors of Progressivism. No more so than the countless people who have accepted the counsel of their psychiatrist as the truth for dealing with life’s problems. We pray, oh Lord, that you would awaken the young people, especially those who claim to be thy children to all the beautiful truths in your Word, the Holy Bible. Convince them through thy Holy Spirit that your Word has all the answers needed for all of life. Help them, oh Lord, to meditate upon all these truths day and night as if they were studying for the most important exam of their life, so that you can write them upon their hearts. We pray this in the blessed Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night” (Psalms 1:1-2).

Morning Prayer 11/26/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father. We may not be able to do much, but we can always pray. We may feel the pain of incompetent people, but praying we must. We may experience the separation caused by injustice, but we should be driven to pray. We may feel the pain inflicted upon us by an evil world, instead of hate we fall to our knees in prayer. We may enter the darkest chamber of our life caused by a known or unknown debilitating condition, then we ask, what else is more important to do, than pray to you our God of love. The world may regard our God as vengeful and His will unknown, but we see His will in prayer and feel His love as we enter fully into His presence. Thank you Father God for allowing us to pray, for allowing us to come constantly into your presence. We happily pray this in the Name of our beloved Savior Jesus Christ. Amen

“Pray without ceasing” (I Thessalonians 5:17).

Morning Prayer 11/25/2016

Thank you, Heavenly Father, for meeting us when we enter our prayer closet. We are in awe that the Creator of heaven and earth stoops to listen to our pleas. Some of your precious children are afraid, while others feel as though they are being overwhelmed by Satan’s demonic host. We especially pray for these dear children, that you give them strength to stand firm against the enemy of our souls. Help them, dear Lord, by opening their eyes to all the resources in thy anointed Scriptures on how to take their stand. You have showed us, oh Lord, as we near the end the enemy will become even more fierce and that his minions on earth will be even more deceptive. We pray that your children will not be blind to his many wiles, but learn to confront him with the appropriate resources. We pray this in the powerful Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil” (Ephesians 6:11).

Morning Prayer 11/24/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father. We pray for all the families coming together on this national holiday to celebrate Thanksgiving. We pray that you will encourage them to speak boldly in the name of Christ, demonstrating true love by leading them to accept the Gospel as the truth and their need for reconciliation with God. Let them not miss this opportunity for you know, oh Lord, that they may never get another one, for indeed the time is short. Encourage them to start sharing with their loved ones how thankful they are for the many blessings in their new life in Christ, for no one can take away their testimony. Also, Lord we want to pray for those who are completely alone this Thanksgiving that you might comfort their hearts and lead someone to reach out to them. We pray for those who are believers and totally alone that they would use their time counting their many blessings and giving thanks to you, oh Lord. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you” (I Thessalonians 5:1).

Morning Prayer 11/23/2016

As we enter our prayer closet this morning we come humbly into the presence of our Mighty God who reigns over all His creation. Help us, oh Lord, to see only your heart of love. Allow us to be wrapped in it as a warm blanket on a cold night. Nothing can separate us from your great love. As the world is being torn apart we feel at total peace in your love. As pain from within and from without seeks to destroy our intimacy, we embrace you all the more. We seek or ask for no quick remedy, but only the comfort of your loving presence. As many in the world lose their focus or are blown about by every wind of doctrine, we thank you, oh Lord, for being our anchor. We know in our minds and in our hearts that you use everything to strengthen our faith, making us into the perfect image of thy beloved Son. We know, oh Lord, that indeed your wonderful grace is sufficient. Praise God. We humbly pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me” (II Corinthians 12:9).

Morning Prayer 11/22/2016

Our Father who art in heaven hallowed be thy name. We are crying out to you Righteous Lord in great agony for our country. We know your prophecy is set and the visions of calamity must come to pass, but we plead that you delay them for the sake of your children. We pray that you postpone them for the sake of those who could still accept your message of salvation. Thank you, dear Lord, for the time that you have already given to us for not only accepting our gift of salvation, but also learning how to live out this new life that you have so graciously given to us. We pray, oh Lord, that you lead all your children not to set idly by or to get caught up in foolish controversies or idle gossip, but we pray, oh Lord, that they would work while there’s still day for the darkness is quickly approaching. We pray this in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen

“I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work” (John 9:4).

Morning Prayer 11/21/2016

Holy Righteous Father we come ever so humbly into thy presence. For we know that you have everything under control. With a grossly divided nation, help us to see what you see. We know your prophetic Word tells us that authority will be given to one individual to rule over every independent nation and all will be forced to worship him. Although we can’t see this person, we know that he will be revealed in his time. Perhaps when the entire world is pulled apart, when there is great savagery in the streets, when the height of wickedness reaches to heaven, and in the midst of a great calamity. We pray that you help us to stand firm in our faith and not be deceived or led astray when this person is finally recognized displaying his many signs and miracles. Until that time arrives help us continue to work for reconciliation among all people through the proclamation of your blessed Gospel. We humbly pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations” (Revelation 13:7).

Morning Prayer 11/20/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you Lord for all the joy and happiness that you have given to us in this life. Even in the midst of pain and suffering caused by sickness or disease we rejoice in you. Even when uncaring people cast their hateful words or make false accusations we maintain that inner joy knowing that you are with us surrounding us with your great love. Even in our bleakest hour we rejoice knowing that our journey to this foreign country is only temporary for our true citizenship is in heaven with you. Praise God. Thank you, oh Lord, for teaching us that our true joy and happiness comes from within and is not produced by outward events or by other people. The Inner light of thy Holy Spirit always brings great joy and happiness to our lives. Praise God. We offer this prayer and praise in the Name of our beloved Lord, Jesus Christ. Amen

“For our conversation [citizenship] is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ” (Philippians 3:20).

Morning Prayer 11/19/2016

Thank you, Heavenly Father, for calling us to a time of solitude and prayer. As we contemplate the future of this Republic and the world we are awakened to the fact that most in our day are being deceived because they have called good bad, and bad they have called good. Or they have overlooked the bad for the sake of the good. We pray that your children who are called by your name will reject everything that violates your Holy Commandments. We pray that this Republic and the world turn from their wickedness and all manner of perversions now or receive the wrath of God stored up for them in the heavens. We have seen, oh Lord, that even a change in leadership will not alter the course of your judgement unless they repent now in sackcloth and ashes. You have confirmed that your righteous judgement is coming swiftly to the great cities along the seas. We pray this in the Name Jesus Christ, the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End. Amen

“Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world” (I John 4:17).

Morning Prayer 11/18/2016

Our Father who art in Heaven hallowed be thy Name. Our hearts bow down low before thee, Mighty God who is more powerful than all that exists. Although Satan and his henchmen appear most powerful in these last days, we are most confident that you, oh Lord, have him on a short leash restricting what he can inflict upon thy chosen children. Although temporarily he may overcome us, we will not be destroyed. Although temporarily he may even deceive us, we will not be led astray. We stand on all your mighty and precious promises. Although we rejoice in our new President Donald Trump to lead our nation out of darkness and all manner of wickedness, we put no trust in man, but rely totally upon you. We trust in you alone, oh Lord, to give us what’s needed and discernment to recognize truth from error. We pray that we will not be blind sheep unable to discern the hand of Satan. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect” (Matthew 24:24).

Morning Prayer 11/17/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father. As the forest fires rage in the South, as the outgoing globalist president takes a worldwide trip on taxpayer money still speaking negatively about the new administration, as anarchist continue to lead the sheep to block traffic causing death then many wonder, how much can they handle. As some question the sincerity of the new administration to fulfill all its promises, as some are nearly overwhelmed by the greed, false accusations, and incompetence of our fellow man then many wonder, how much can they handle. As the world sits on the precipice of uncertainty your children need the assurance that you still hold them in the palm of your mighty hand, to not allow them to be tempted (or tested) beyond what they can handle. They need assurance, oh Lord, that you will give them a path (another option) even with all that’s happening in their life to escape and have the ability to bear it or stand up under it. We pray this in the mighty Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it” (I Corinthians 10:13).

Morning Prayer 11/16/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father. We come early into our prayer closet this morning asking you to bring forth fierce winter storms to all the cities that have unlawful demonstrations, not to harm but to keep the demonstrators off the streets. Show your wrath, oh Lord, to all those who openly and aggressively are demonstrating ungodliness. We cannot trust in the current leadership to do anything to stop this mayhem, rather they secretly through their operatives continue to advance the demonstrations to show their displeasure for losing their seat of power. Moreover, they are still slandering through their liberal media the coming new administration for those who tenaciously hold to their Christian beliefs. We plead with you, oh Lord to protect them from all harm, both physical and psychological, and fill them with your wisdom and spiritual strength to govern this great Republic righteously. We pray this in the Name of your beloved Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord” (Romans 12:19).

Morning Prayer 11/15/2016

Holy Righteous Father we long to be in thy presence this morning for it is only thee we want to hear. Your voice cuts through the confusion, the pain, and the anxious feelings. It is your voice alone that calms the spirit. We pray that all your children no matter how busy they think they are will take the time to listen. Help us to hear your voice, oh Lord, for nothing in the entire universe is more important than having a conversation with you, to hear your blessed words as our spirit responds. Give us eyes of discernment to really see what’s going on in the world and what our response should be. We have regrettably seen many of your children, even in high places, pop-off without thinking it through, without getting direction from you, which has only added to the confusion here on earth. Help us to mark our every word and action. We pray this in the blessed Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered” (Romans 8:26).

Morning Prayer 11/14/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father. As we face another day we are thankful that you are on the throne. No matter what happens in this world you are the only true King and Lord. We praise your Holy and Righteous Name. Please give us our marching orders for this week so that ALL we do and say will bring glory to your Name. Help us, oh Lord, to hold this thought in our mind all week, every minute of every day. Glory to God! Just think how much would change in our individual lives and the world if every believer would walk and behave as the children of Light in a dark world. In a moment in time it would do more to change the world than all the demonstrations, all the elections, and all the wars put together. Give us the mind of Christ, the love of God, and the will of thy Holy Spirit to make a difference. We will not fear what lies ahead for we know you are with us until the end. Praise God. We gladly pray this in the glorious Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen” (Matthew 28:18-20).

Morning Prayer 11/13/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father. This past week, oh Lord, as you well know, we have agonized over how we as a nation have allowed these lawless demonstrations on the streets of America. To demonstrate against evil, if we are allowed to do it, is a good thing, but here we see something completely different. How can thousands of people demonstrate for something that has not even affected them yet? It seems clear to me, oh Lord, that they are demonstrating that they may be allowed to continue to disobey the law of the land and live here illegally. While others are demonstrating because they want to ensure that they can continue to disobey your righteous laws by committing their many perversions and the murder of unborn children. We pray that you would open the eyes of the current leadership to stop these illegal demonstrations that are hurting innocent bystanders, destroying property, and bringing down a nation. We pray this in the Holy Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” (Isaiah 5:20)

Morning Prayer 11/12/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father. We so enjoy coming into your presence. The many voices attempting to pull us in different directions are getting even louder as each competes to dominate the conversation from the streets to the news media, to social media. Yet, through all this we can still find peace and solitude in your presence. We pray that, especially in these dark days, we only listen to your voice. A voice that always calms our spirit and gives us direction not only for our benefit, but more importantly for the benefit of others. Give us ears to hear, oh Lord, how we can make a real difference in the world. Above all let us say nothing or do nothing unless it brings glory to your Holy Name, to fulfill your divine plan. Once again, we pray that you will help us to rescue a whole generation of young people that has been lost to the teachings of progressivism, which has divided our beautiful country. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10).

Morning Prayer 11/11/2016

Holy Righteous Father we cry out to you this morning seeking your counsel and direction on how to heal a divided nation. For the past eight years, we have allowed evil to go unimpeded, while most of us slept comfortably in our churches, as those in power openly encouraged it. For the past eight years, we have allowed our children to be taught progressivism by liberal teachers and professors, and now we wonder why they are marching in the streets. We pray, oh Lord, that it’s not too late to rescue our young people from the clutches of evil and help them to see a brighter future for a country that returns to the path of righteousness. We pray, oh Lord, that we will not be pulled into the battle by responding with cruel and hateful words. On the other hand, give us wisdom and strength to confront each person with the truth and sincere love in our hearts for their eternal well being. We pray this in the loving Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good” (Romans 12:21, also see verses 17-20).

Morning Prayer 11/10/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father. Help us to know how to pray for a divided nation, which has been divided for a very long time, long before the current election. It’s very difficult to stop this ever-increasing division when our schools and colleges are teaching a progressive agenda allowing wickedness to be accepted. It’s difficult when Hollywood and the main line media does the same though their movies and reporting. Show us, oh Lord, how to stop this worsening division before the pendulum swings back to evil leadership in high places. Give us wisdom to help and support our new President, Donald Trump, but above all give your children courage to stand against this evil armed with the Gospel message demonstrating love and compassion to a blind and wicked population. We pray this in the Wonderful Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6).

Morning Prayer 11/9/2016

As we enter our prayer closet this morning we are humbled for your great mercy in answering your children’s cry for help. Never have we seen such an outcry of united prayer among thy people not only in this nation, but around the world. We as a people rejected the horrific direction of a lawless and inclusive nation that would have destroyed the very fabric of our Christian exclusiveness. As your people, we do not and will not put our trust in this new leader that you have so graciously allowed to become our president, but we place our trust solely in you to hold him accountable to fulfill all his promises to the people of this nation and the world. We pray, oh Lord, that you would heal a divided land and a world in turmoil giving your people an opportunity to share your grace and love through the unhindered proclamation of thy blessed Gospel. We pray, oh Lord, that righteousness will replace lawlessness and perversions that’s held our people in captivity. We pray this in the most holy Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty” (I Timothy 2:1-2).

Morning Prayer 11/8/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father, Holy and Righteous is your Name. We come humbly before you pleading for your protection of all those casting their votes today. Protect your children, oh Lord, from violence, intimidation, and peer pressure allowing them to vote as you have led. We pray that you would immediately expose any attempt to change, destroy, or add additional ballots to alter the outcome of our national election. Let this national election be a true barometer of the people’s heart and motivation to expose the full extent of wickedness or righteousness in our nation. Finally, as we have always prayed open the eyes of the blind so that they can see the truth and vote for the right person who would not continue to lead our nation down the path of globalization and assimilation of all religions. We pray this in the powerful Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land” (II Chronicles 7:14).

Morning Prayer 11/7/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father. You know, oh Lord, on the eve of our national election we live in a divided nation with a war brewing between the sons of light and the sons of darkness. Indeed, this is much more than physical, but a spiritual war that reaches to heaven. We pray that all thy beloved children will see and understand that this coming war will not be won by using the weapons of this world. We must put on the whole armor of God to take our stand and then boldly speak thy truth to a dying world. We pray that your truth will open the eyes of the blind so that they will see how Satan has entered the hearts of those seeking global leadership. Convict thy children that they can no longer hide in their church buildings waiting upon thy glorious return, but that they must join the fight or suffer the consequences of an unchecked global persecution. Show them, oh Lord, that one way to fight back is by casting their vote. We pray this in the glorious Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)” (II Corinthians 10:3-4).

Morning Prayer 11/6/2016

Good Morning Heavenly Father. We praise your holy Name, the name above all names. Thank you Lord for thy beautiful gift, which you have so wonderfully bestowed upon us. Yes, Lord you have given us life when there is death all around us. Every day we see people walking and talking and acting like they are alive, but they are dead. They cannot see that they are dead and make fine sounding arguments about how happy they are, but all the while hurting deep within unwilling to admit that they have a great void from thy missing Spirit. Empower your people, oh Lord, and send forth your angels to proclaim to the world that they are spiritually dead and in need of Jesus Christ. Tell them that Jesus Christ is the only One who can bring life to their miserable existence through repentance and faith. We pray that your people would openly and boldly express the joy of their new life in Christ. We pray this in the Holy Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) (Ephesians 2:4-5).

Morning Prayer 11/5/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father. We salute you this morning as our true King and Lord. On the eve of our national election we bow our knee before you alone. We pray that you open the eyes of the world and especially your children to the danger of globalization that seeks the assimilation of all world religions. Help them, oh Lord, to see that this assimilation would require them to make room in their faith for their many perversions and to deny the exclusiveness of any one religion. We pray that you would give all your precious children the strength and determination to fight against this wickedness that will allow the Antichrist to rule the world. We stand on the precipice of time and eternity when we all have an opportunity to delay the inevitable, if not for our sake, for the sake of our children and grandchildren. We pray this in the Holy Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world” (Revelation 13:7-8).

Morning Prayer 11/4/2016

Our Father who art in heaven we come humbly into thy presence. We ask that you shine your bright light upon our national election and separate truth from lies. We pray, oh Lord, that you openly expose every lie and lay bare every deception so everyone can see. We pray that you would exonerate and strengthen the righteous. We pray, oh Lord, that your heavenly justice will fall upon the wicked. Please, dear Lord, we beseech you to no longer allow the wicked to lead this great nation, but you alone would instill righteous leaders to lead thy people. Close the mouth of the wicked who are speaking evil of thy chosen candidate, allow them to speak no more lies until all the people cast their vote. We also pray for the news media that they would no longer be allowed to favor one candidate over another. We long to honor our national leaders as in days gone by. We pray this in the righteous Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God” (Romans 13:1).

Morning Prayer 11/3/2016

Holy Righteous Father we cry out to you when our pain and suffering seems more than what we can bear. The greatest pain of all is seeing your dear children suffer due to the greed and hatefulness of fallen humanity or some debilitating disease. We pray that you would restore their hope by looking beyond this cruel world to a place yet unseen, but more permanent filled with real love for one another. Let them feel the hope now, for indeed, our hope is built on nothing less than Jesus blood and righteousness. Help them, oh Lord, to find comfort in thy indwelling Spirit that carries our mind away from concentrating upon our pain and suffering that can be seen to the joy of the unseen world that one day will become more real than our temporal existence. We pray this in the loving Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal” (II Corinthians 4:18).

Morning Prayer 11/2/2016

Good Morning Heavenly Father. We have come early into our prayer closet this morning seeking comfort for thy people. There is great stress upon the world with much uncertainty if Christians will have their voices heard over the thunder of evil leaders seeking to silence your people. Our hearts are sorely grieved that some who call upon the name of Christ have viciously rebuked thy people for lifting their voices against an evil establishment and its wicked leaders. We pray, oh Lord, that all of your children everywhere will see the great importance of speaking against evil and refusing to make room in their faith for its abomination. You have graciously shown us a better Way that leads to life, whereas evil leads to death and destruction. So, give your children courage to speak life through our blessed gospel and not death through silence. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God” (Isaiah 40:1). “Let the lying lips be put to silence; which speak grievous things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous” (Psalms 31:18).

Morning Prayer 11/1/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father. It is so good to come into thy presence at the dawning of a new day. Thank you, dear Lord, for always putting everything into perspective, helping us to look beyond the superficial and see how Satan and his demonic host is using both the news media and the alternative news sites to keep the world confused and uninformed. Indeed, your Spirit has shown us there is some truth mixed with lies (and deception) in both, not for the purposes of only providing truth, but increasing their audiences for profit. We pray that you take away their profits, oh Lord, by removing thy people from their audience. We pray that all thy holy people will only be satisfied with you without longing for each morsel of sensational and negative reporting. On the other hand, we pray that you would raise up spiritual leaders and prophets from among your people to only report the truth, not for profit, but to the glory of God. We pray this in the righteous Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets. For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints” (I Corinthians 14:32-33).

Morning Prayer 10/31/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father. We ask by your great power that you look after the little children every day, but especially tonight. Surround them with thy holy angles. We have been alarmed that a greater evil is scheduled to take place this evening against thy blessed little ones by evil imposters dressed as clowns. We pray that all parents and grandparents take hold of their precious children and not allow them to go alone into the night. Help us to fight the good fight by not participating in the world’s evil events that has captured so many in its web of deceit by promising great delights. We pray that every Christian parent will demonstrate to their children a better way of giving rather than receiving, to allow their light to shine brightly in a dark world. Let us pass this night in prayer remembering all that you have so freely given unto us. We pray this in the loving Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“I have shewed you all things, how that so laboring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, “It is more blessed to give than to receive” (Act 20:35).

Morning Prayer 10/30/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father we bow down to honor you this morning. Oh Lord, please keep us calm, keep us focused on you, for there’s many distractions in the world right now. Keep us in thy Spirit and close to thee so we don’t ever miss hearing your still small voice. Forgive us, oh Lord, if we get caught up in the clamor of the world as it’s on the fast track to hell, believing and passing on their lies and deception at the speed of light. Help us to weigh everything we see and read with the balances of thy holy Word and test it first with thy indwelling Spirit before passing it on as the gospel truth. We have discerned a whole subculture of alternative news sites, because of the propaganda and progressive leaning of the establishment and its media. We need great discernment so we don’t fall prey for the lies and deception that has captured the hearts of so many in our day. We pray for discernment in the wonderful Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived” (II Timothy 3:12-13).

Morning Prayer 10/29/2016

Holy Righteous Father we storm the gates of heaven with our prayers this morning asking you to heal the sick and diseased amongst us. We all have times when things don’t seem to go right or we must suffer from some illness, but when those closest to us are struck down with some debilitating disease it causes us to cry out to you in great agony and helplessness. We believe in your great power to heal, oh Lord. We believe that you have given certain ones the spiritual gift of healing. So, we beech you, oh Lord, to raise up those gifted individuals to use their gift of healing to restore the dignity, identity, and memory of those who have been robbed of it by the Alzheimer’s disease. Or give us the gift, dear Lord, along with your divine leading to lay our hands upon those suffering from this most dreadful disease and other illnesses. We pray this in the loving Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word, by stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus” (Act 4:29-30).

Morning Prayer 10/28/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father. We come before thee with burdened hearts for your children who live in this great country that you had allowed to exists for many years as a bright shining light to the world. In times past your children would pray for direction then get up and fight the good fight against evil in all of its various forms. They courageously fought against corruption, slavery, and the abuses of power. We cry out to you, oh Lord, in great agony today for your children who no longer want to fight for what’s right. They pray sure enough, but it never motivates many of them to get up and do what’s right. Many of them refuse to get up and vote against, to fight against those who openly support homosexuality, the killing of unborn children, and the abuse of power. We do pray, oh Lord, that you motivate all of your children to get up and fight for what’s right if not for themselves then at least do it for their children and grandchildren. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Nevertheless we made our prayer unto our God, and set a watch against them day and night, because of them” (Nehemiah 4:9).

Morning Prayer 10/27/2016

Our Father who art in heaven hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven. Anyone can say we want your will to be done. Anyone can say just about anything. So, we pray this morning that all your servants around the world would do more than just say these beautiful words, but they would do thy will. Your Word, our Holy Bible, is replete with giving us direction on how to do your will now; not for some future dispensation, but for now. We pray that all of children would not wait to be spoon fed by their preachers and teachers, but would read and apply ALL your great truths from the Bible to their lives. Help them, oh Lord, to be doers of the word and not be counted among those who just quote the Word without doing it. Help them, oh Lord, to move beyond their few favorite passages of Scripture that they love to quote to all thy New Covenant with your people; to digest all your Word and start applying it to their lives. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves” (James 1:22).

Morning Prayer 10/26/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father. We know Lord that your beloved children are faced with many decisions every day. Although most appear to be small and insignificant, while others are major, help us, oh Lord to see that every decision we make is important to you and demonstrates loudly who we are as a child of God. Thank you Lord for teaching us that there is a Way to make decisions, so unlike the world, that will always bring glory to your Name and furtherance to your Kingdom here on earth. Yes, Lord, every decision we make should be tested by what is known as agape love. A self-giving love that expects nothing in return. Praise God. Lead us, help us, oh Lord, to always ask what is best for others and not what’s always best for us. Teach us, dear Lord, to always sacrifice our selfish desires for the benefit of others thus demonstrating the power of true agape love. We pray this in the Righteous Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And I will very gladly spend and be spent for you; though the more abundantly I love you, the less I be loved” (II Corinthians 12:15).

Morning Prayer 10/25/2016

Holy Righteous Father we come before thee this morning empty handed desiring to hear your voice alone. We want to hear that still small voice from within that cannot be heard by an evil world. As the world listens to their master through the slanted media and biased commentary, we strain to listen to you, oh Lord. As the world grows custom to listening to the polished rhetoric of their leaders, we bow to hear your voice alone. As tears flow down our face we hear, “Set the captives free.” Yes, Jesus Christ came to set the captives free, where they no longer need to serve their evil masters on the newly formed plantations of the world. To be set free from their godless counseling. To be set free from their psychiatric drugs. To be set free from their total dependence upon the establishment and delivered from their crime infested neighborhoods. Only Jesus Christ can truly set the captives free, the King of kings and Lord of lords. So, let us be busy doing your kingdom work, oh Lord, by proclaiming the truth. Amen

“Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:31-32).

Morning Prayer 10/24/2016

Good morning Holy Righteous Father. We come humbly before you as our King of kings and Lord of lords. Thank you that you have taught us how to live righteously by following thy anointed Word. Thank you Lord for commanding us to rebuke and exhort our fellow brother or sister who refuses to live according to thy divine laws and precepts. Some in our day, oh Lord, suppose that a brother or sister serving in a leadership position in our government gives them divine immunity from your higher law and the rebuke or exhortation from a fellow brother. Open the eyes of your children that this kind of thinking comes from the devil himself and has led this great country to become Sodom and Gomorrah and ripe for your divine judgement. Give your children strength to speak out against all evil proclaiming you alone as their King. We pray this in the powerful Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee” (Titus 2:15).

Morning Prayer 10/23/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father how glorious is thy name. We would rather be fools for Christ than highly esteemed by this generation. Thank you Lord for making us who we are now, for indeed at one time we were wise in our own eyes unable to comprehend the depth of thy love. We have become nothing so that we can become everything in you. We are not ashamed of you and your beautiful words of life. We pray that all of your children would feel the same when they are pressed upon by this adulterous and sinful generation. We pray that they would not be embarrassed or fear being mocked and ridiculed by this evil world. Remind them that you will give them powerful words to speak in the defense of the Gospel. Help them, oh Lord, to stand firm believing that one day they will stand in thy glorious presence with thy holy angels. We pray this in the beloved Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels” (Mark 8:38).

Morning Prayer 10/22/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father we humbly come into thy presence. You have taught us that the true power of prayer opens the doors of heaven so that we can see the Father’s will, to hear your voice alone. Only after waiting to hear your voice can we act upon it through the power of thy Holy Spirit. We will not bury our talent nor will we allow ourselves to become void of the Spirit as the foolish virgins, but we will do your bidding Master by standing firm against evil. Open the eyes of all of your children to see how evil has covered the entire world. Give them strength, oh Lord, to preach against it, to teach against it, to march against it, to vote against it, and above all not to participate in it by doing nothing. Show them by arguing amongst one another is doing nothing to stop the spread of evil. Let them all bow their knee before you today to get their marching orders and become the true children of light. We pray this in the powerful Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“If any man have an ear, let him hear. He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints” (Revelation 13:9-10).

Morning Prayer 10/21/2016

Holy Righteous Father we lay ourselves prostrate before you this morning. Search us to see if there is any unclean thing in us. Examine our hearts, oh Lord, to see if our motives our pure. Before we ever speak or judge another remind us through thy indwelling Spirit to always look at ourselves first to ensure that we are interpreting thy Word correctly and that we are applying it to our own life. It is so sad that during these dark days of the Internet and social media that some people can say whatever they want and never be held accountable for their actions. Help us, dear Lord, to never be counted among that number. We pray that you will hold us accountable for everything we say and do so that it we will always glorify that holy Name. Let all of our words be encouraging, edifying, and if rebuke let it be done in gentleness and compassion. We pray this in the Righteous Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye” (Matthew 7:4-5).

Morning Prayer 10/20/2016

There is so much darkness on the horizon this morning as evil is covering the world. One wonders how to pray. So we bow before our Majesty on High, our Heavenly Father, our King of kings and Lord of lords, and we wait to hear once again His righteous voice. “It’s time dear children to stop listening to the evil in the world.” Yes, Lord we must come out from among them and stop listening to their lies and participating in their godless agenda. We pray, oh Lord, that you give all of your children the strength and determination to do just that, not allowing their selves or their children to be polluted by the lies of the world. We pray, oh Lord, that you keep them from no longer being led astray by the evil world, its media, its schools, and its corrupt leadership by truly coming out from among them before it’s too late. We pray this in the righteous Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty” (II Corinthians 6:17-18).

Morning Prayer 10/19/2016

As we enter our prayer closet this morning we are greatly troubled by the great confusion in the world. Holy Righteous Father, we pray that you begin to separate the evil from the righteous with your winnowing fork. You know, we live in a world that calls evil good and good they call evil. Because of the many false religions spreading their lies, it has caused great confusion even among your precious children. So, we beech thee, oh Lord, to expose all evil, allowing their true intentions to be seen by all. Dear Lord, for all those who have been covered with the filthy mud of false accusations, we pray that they would be publicly exonerated. Let the righteous shine forth as bright as the noonday sun to expose the darkness of humanity with its ugly embrace of evil. Keep the world, oh Lord, from casting a vote for the wicked that would only drive humanity deeper into the pit of gross immorality and its pending doom. As we all stand on the stage of life let us do right. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“His winnowing fork is in his hand. He will clean up his threshing floor and gather his grain into the barn, but he will burn the chaff with inextinguishable fire” (Matthew 3:12, ISV).

Morning Prayer 10/18/2016

We come humbly into thy presence Heavenly Father. Thank you for your providential care of your beloved children. We have seen it so often in our own journey. We have seen your great power at work, oftentimes in hindsight, where you have allowed certain events to happen, or not happen, to change the outcome, because you know what’s best for your children. Praise God for your providence. Thank you for giving us spiritual eyes to see your hand at work molding us and making us into the kind of people you want us to be. They say with you nothing happens by accident. Help us, oh Lord, to learn our lessons the first time so we don’t have to keep experiencing the same uncomfortable events over and over again. Help us to listen, to really listen, to what the Holy Spirit says to the Church, for indeed we are the Church. We pray this in the powerful Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28).

Morning Prayer 10/17/2016

We come rather early into our prayer closet this morning seeking your comfort and direction as we face another day. Thank you Father as a child of God we can come to you often and have the assurance that you have bent down to listen to us. In that alone we take great comfort as joy once again enters into our hearts. We always seek direction from you, oh Lord, to give us assurance that we are going in the right direction, that we are thinking the right things, and that we are speaking only what you would have us to say. We never want to add to the world’s confusion or give them the wrong idea about you. We always desire to give our utmost for the highest. To always bring great honor and glory to your Holy Name, the name above every name. The name of Jesus Christ our Lord. We humbly bow our knee and proudly confess this morning and every day that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of the Father. Amen

“Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (Philippians 2:9-11).

Morning Prayer 10/16/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father. We want to take time to thank you for sending your only begotten Son to show us the Way. The Way of life and not death. A way that imparts life to others by giving ourselves to them in love, by giving them your truth as you have imparted it to us. Thank you for teaching us about the gift and power of faith that can truly change our lives as well as the lives of others. Thank you for the many gifts of the Holy Spirit that dwells in each of your beloved children not for our benefit, but for the benefit of others. We pray that you will increase our faith to use our gifts of the Holy Spirit to build up and edify the Church. We pray, oh Lord, that we will always be sensitive to your leading and never neglect the use of our Spiritual gifts in a day when they are so sorely needed. We pray that everything would be done for your glory. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen

“Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant” (I Corinthians 12:1).

Morning Prayer 10/15/2016

Holy Righteous Father as we come into our prayer closet this morning we are mindful of the decision that many will make on Election Day. We pray that you would open the eyes of their hearts. Allow them, oh Lord, to see what’s really at stake in this election. Help them to see that it goes well beyond the promise of jobs, improved economy, national security, or even global warming. Let them see the one topic rarely discussed, but tenaciously held by one of the candidates that would have a devastating effect upon every true believer in Christ. You have showed us, oh Lord, that it would be the death nail to Christian exclusiveness and would eventually lead to the worldwide persecution of every Christian. Yes, Lord we pray that they would see the real danger of this continued march toward globalization, that spreads their perversion and the assimilation of all faiths. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication” (Revelation 14:8).

Morning Prayer 10/14/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for allowing us to pray to you through thy indwelling Holy Spirit. What a privilege it is to have communication with the Creator Himself. Thank you for taking the time to speak to us words of life, words of comfort, and words of truth. In thy presence we never really feel alone. In thy presence we feel whole again desiring only to do your will, in all things, which brings us great joy as it glorifies your Holy Name. Praise God. Help us, oh Lord, to live out every moment in loving service to others, by opening their eyes to the truth, encouraging them to follow your Way, and comforting them when they are inflicted. We know that all this comes directly from you and not from the world. Allow the world to spread its own lies while you lead us to spread the truth. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“If ye love me, keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you” (John 14:15-17).

Morning Prayer 10/13/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father how glorious is thy Name. At times we feel as though we are immersed in a quagmire of unrighteousness, especially when we gaze upon thy holiness. We are living among a people of unclean lips openly displaying their perversions on the streets of our great cities. We ask for your forgiveness. Let them see the bright light of thy holiness so that they can see clearly the error of their ways. Raise up thy Church, oh Lord, to openly demonstrate their holiness through obedience to thy commands, proper dress, purity of speech, and unfettered love and service to all. We pray that your people would truly come out from the world creating a stark contrast between the children of light and the children of darkness. Indeed, it is a sad day when we cannot see the difference between thy people and the people of the world. Give your people voice, oh Lord, to proclaim thy truth to a dying word. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues” (Revelation 18:4).

Morning Prayer 10/12/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father. We come humbly into thy presence, oh Lord, at the dawning of a new day. We seek thy divine guidance in all of our affairs knowing full well that you really know what’s best for us during these turbulent times. Help us, oh Lord, to never get so busy in our own affairs that we forget about the needs of others. You have taught us that those needs go well beyond food and clothing to helping others to live out life to its fullest free from the bondages of psychological abuse and emotional trauma. Lead us to always take the time to get beyond the surface interaction with others to reach out and touch their wounded spirit with the healing balm of thy holy truth. Convince all they children that they are more than competent to counsel the real needs of others as they are led by thy indwelling Spirit. Teach us to truly love others deeply from the heart. We pray this in the loving Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“As far as I am concerned about you, my brothers, I am convinced that you especially are abounding in the highest goodness, richly supplied with perfect knowledge and competent to counsel one another” (Romans 15:14, Williams Translation).

Morning Prayer 10/11/2016

Good morning Holy Father, as we come joyfully into our prayer closet this morning, we are reminded of the many storms in life that you have brought us through. As the medal passes through the fire to remove the dross, in the same way you have, at times, have allowed us to pass through grievous trials and tribulations to purge us of all impurity. Thank you Jesus for walking with us through these storms in life and never letting go. What a joy it is to come through these times of testing to perfect our faith and strengthen our relationship with you. Praise God. Yes, joy comes in the morning as we sing hallelujah and praises to thy holy Name. Our hearts are refreshed before thee and now have a clearer vision of the path before us. Praise God. We pray this in the wonderful Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Sing unto the LORD, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness. For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning” (Psalms 30:4-5).

Morning Prayer 10/10/2016

As we enter our prayer closet this morning we are reminded once again how powerful Satan is, in his attempt to cause your children to stumble. Holy Father help us to always keep our minds pure, thinking only good loving thoughts. Help us, oh Lord, to immediately cast out any and every evil thought. Although Satan and our own evil nature can produce such thoughts, we thank you for giving us great power as a new creation to cast out such evil thoughts and replace them immediately with loving thoughts. Praise God. For we know that every word spoken and every action taken always begins with a thought. Help us, dear Lord, to always think your thoughts after you. Help us to have the mind of Christ. Indeed, our body language can easily become a window of what we are thinking either diminishing or increasing the bright light of your glory shinning though us. We pray this in the powerful Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ” (I Corinthians 2:16).

Morning Prayer 10/9/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father. We cry out to thee, oh Lord, for these are confusing times for our country. Help them to stop being immersed in a quagmire of nasty politics perpetuated by the news media and look at the big picture of what is really happening in our country and the world. As we look up to you, oh Lord, and gaze upon thy holiness we begin to see most of this political psycho-babble as Satan’s sinister charade to keep us from seeing the truth of our pending demise. Step by step the evil one is casting his net over this country to capture the hearts and minds of a confused populace. We pray that you would give all of thy children great discernment and wisdom to see, really see, what is about to happen. Help us to listen to you alone without all of the mixed voices from an immoral and confused world. Only then can we see and hear thy voice. We pray this in the holy Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice” (John 10:4).

Morning Prayer 10/8/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for our new life in Christ, for without true confession, repentance, and forgiveness it would have been impossible. Thank you, oh Lord, that the Holy Spirit brought deep conviction into our hearts, which caused us to feel great remorse for our sins leading us to public confession, repentance, and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. Yet, we have those who seek national leadership in our country who will never publicly confess their sins, but keep making excuses while attempting to cover them up with more lies and deception. On the other hand, it is a breath of fresh air when others will publicly confess and show signs of remorse and repentance. Help us, oh Lord, to judge rightly and always be ready to forgive. We ask, oh Lord, for great discernment in our day when there is so many lies and deception. We pray this in the loving Name of Jesus our Lord. Amen

“If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (I John 1:8-9).

Morning Prayer 10/7/2016

Good morning Righteous Father how great is thy Ways, given to us to change humanity. We are on the brink of destruction and our world leaders are blaming nearly everything on global warming, while they allow gross immorality to go unchecked. We cry out to you, oh Lord to open their eyes to see that the root cause of all the world’s problems is turning away from thy great ethical teachings and embracing sexual immorality, homosexuality, transgender, abortion, and every other vile sin. Lead them to the truth, dear Lord, although some of the world’s unstable weather patterns could have been caused by unrighteous man, let them not discount the fact that you have great power to use it to inflict your righteous judgement upon fallen humanity. Lift up thy people to proclaim thy truth in the midst of the storm. We pray this in the powerful Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“The LORD is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the LORD hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet” (Nahum 1:3).

Morning Prayer 10/6/2016

Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. How majestic and Wonderful is thy Name. For so many their God is too small and insignificant, perhaps thinking He is too busy to observe their misdeeds or times of impropriety. They think He is too occupied to observe their evil thoughts and selfish desires. Yet, it is He who holds everything together that exists and has authority over everything that happens and will let nothing slip His eye. We pray, oh Lord that you would awaken thy children to this truth, for indeed it would help them to stand firm against the storms of life. Indeed, it would help them to think twice about doing anything that would offend thee. It would help them to see that nothing could ever separate us from your love. Let them, oh Lord, witness your great power and majesty. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist” (Colossians 1:16-17).

Morning Prayer 10/5/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for your great love demonstrated to us by your patience. It brings great joy to our hearts knowing that we are so loved by you. Thank you for bearing with us as we learn how to be patient with others. Indeed, having patience with others is love. Allowing others needs to supersede ours. Allowing their continuous interruptions not to alter our love or disrupt our patience. Not allowing others imperfections or hatefulness to alter our loving response. Learning patience teaches us how to love as you loved us. Praise God. We know some day we may need patient endurance, never lacking patience, to withstand physical and mental persecution, which will demonstrate our love even toward our persecutors to the glory of God. Help us, oh Lord, to allow this patience to complete its work, that we may be perfect, not lacking anything. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing” (James 1:3-4).

Morning Prayer 10/4/2016

Gracious Heavenly Father we are always honored to come into thy presence. We are so grieved that our national leaders are so corrupt and immoral, but what grieves us the most is their pretentiousness to lie. Knowing that Satan is the father of lies makes our burden even more difficult to respect their decrees and honor their office. So we humbly ask that you begin to rule by raising up godly men to lead our nation and to set an example for our young. Father in heaven strike down the unrighteous leaders amongst us by exposing their multitude of sins against thy people. Judge them before the court of heaven, oh Lord, so that they would be found wanting. Let them all be judged by thy righteous judgement. Finally, open the eyes of all thy children, oh Lord, to see them for who they really are and not what they so proudly proclaim. We pray this in the powerful Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power” (I Corinthians 15:24).

Morning Prayer 10/3/2016

Holy Righteous Father we come humbly into thy presence this morning. We love you Father and praise your holy name. In these dark days of uncertainty, we desire to walk close to you allowing you alone to guide our path daily. Keep us, oh Lord, from being pulled from the path by the many different distractions in the world. In times past we have discovered how easy it is to get caught up in the world’s entertainment; to get wholly involved in civic, fraternal, political, or even religious activities causing us to forget our first love. Forgive us, oh Lord, how even our good intentions on social media has robbed us of many precious hours of walking close to thee in prayers of simplicity and meditation upon thy Holy Word. Lead us to evaluate our time spent on each activity ensuring that it will always glorify you. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent” (Revelation 2:4-5).

Morning Prayer 10/2/2016

Good Morning Heavenly Father. As I enter my prayer closet this morning and remove the many distractions so that I can hear the voice of the Lord, I am once again overwhelmed with what I see and hear. A dark cloud, black as night, is in the process of completely covering our nation where there is no longer any light. So horrifying and cold it is with only a little light of truth and righteousness shining forth. So foreboding is the mass confusion, rejection of the truth, and the utter blindness caused by gross immorality that one wonders how to pray. Oh Lord, lead your children back to the truth and stop looking for the great escape by quoting a few verses out of context. Lead them, oh Lord, to prepare to stand firm now, against all unrighteousness, and to reject the lies of Satan that he is building a brave new world of peace and harmony. We pray this in the Name of our beloved Savior Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened” (Matthew 24:21-22).

Morning Prayer 10/1/2016

Dear Heavenly Father. Hear our cry in the night from the depth of our soul. Oh Lord, how could someone running for the highest office in the land and will lead the most powerful country in the world lie about the true condition of the United States of America. We feel in our soul and perceive with our eyes that our nation is on the precipice of falling into the abyss of death and destruction. Law and order has been exchanged for lawlessness and chaos. Righteousness has been exchanged for gross immorality and unspeakable perversions. Awaken thy Church, oh Lord to get out of their comfortable pews to proclaim the Gospel truth to a blind and deaf populace. Exhort them, to pick up the Banner of Christ to lead a wayward nation back to the Way. Send your Holy Angels, oh Lord, to a perverse nation before it’s too late. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And I saw another angel flying in mid-heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those dwelling on the earth, even to every nation and kindred and tongue and people, saying with a great voice, Fear God and give glory to Him! For the hour of His judgment has come. And worship Him who made the heaven and the earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters” (Revelation 14:6-7).

Morning Prayer 9 /30/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father righteous and holy is thy Name. Thank you for teaching us to trust you more each day. As the worldly props are removed one by one we find renewed strength in thee. As our well laid plans are changed unexpectedly and the future seems uncertain once again we learn to trust in thee more. The more we trust in thee, the closer we feel to thee. The more we trust in thee, greater the joy abounds within. Thank you for teaching us to trust in thee. Thank you for the great joy within. Praise God. We pray that all of your precious children learn to trust more in you as we face uncertain days ahead. Use whatever means necessary to teach them, oh Lord, for indeed the time is short for which we all feel. Oh, what a joy it is to trust in thee. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“But let all who put their trust in You rejoice; let them always shout for joy, because You defend them. And let those who love Your name be joyful in You” (Psalms 5:11).

Morning Prayer 9/29/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for beautiful music that opens the window of our soul. So deep seated are so many thoughts and feelings that can only be drawn out with heavenly music and the divine touch of thy Spirit. As we contemplate heaven and life eternal with you amongst the stars and the distant galaxies we hear the sounds of heaven ringing forth to touch every soul. As our thoughts soar to greater heights we feel the power of your love that will unite all of your children forever more as an unending score of heavenly music playing on the strings of our hearts. We pray, oh Lord, help your children hear the music in their hearts today and desire the unity of spirit among all true believers. Lead us to cast down the deafening walls that separate; the walls of race, culture, and age. Nit us together in true love and harmony now, as we face the darkest days of Christianity looming on the horizon. We pray this in the powerful Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And now I am in the world no longer, but these are in the world, and I come to You, Holy Father. Keep them in Your name, those whom You have given Me, so that they may be one as We are” (John 17:11).

Morning Prayer 9/28/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father we will always adore and worship thee. Even as the whole world turns further away from thy blessed teachings and embraces the philosophies of the age, we will stand with thee oh Lord. We commit ourselves to all of thy blessed teachings passed down to us in the original documents penned by thy holy Apostles and Prophets. We pray that all of thy Children take the time, really take the time, to read and mediate upon all these truths under the direction of the indwelling Holy Spirit and to spend far less time reading man’s interpretation. Lead them, oh Lord, to spend far less time reading and watching the spectacular, the fictional, the world’s philosophies, it’s doctrines of psychology, conspiracy theories, and everything else that would draw them away from thy holy teachings. Help them to see that following the world will cause them to miss the Way. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Blessed is the man who has not walked in the counsel of the ungodly, and has not stood in the way of sinners, and has not sat in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is only in the Law of Jehovah; and in His Law he meditates day and night” (Psalms 1:1-2).

Morning Prayer 9/27/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father. We cry out to you asking that you give discernment to the world during these dark days. Millions are being led astray by the same old polished rhetoric. A rhetoric that says nothing substantial, but makes the same empty promises and platitudes to capture their listeners and win the debate. All the time covering up their real intentions to spurn your holy commands, embrace their special interests, and assimilate all religions to accept their perversions. Open the eyes of humanity and especially your children to the devastation that lies ahead if we don’t change direction now, before it’s too late. Expose the lies and true intentions of all who would lead in both political and religious arenas. And for those who have the gift of discernment let them speak loudly and forcefully to open the eyes of humanity. We pray this in the wonderful Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Because of the transgression of a land, many are its rulers; but it is prolonged by a man of discernment who knows right” (Proverbs 28:2).

Morning Prayer 9/26/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father who is the Great Physician for indeed you created our bodies and know how to repair them when things go wrong.  We all know someone who is suffering from some medical problem, which deeply grieves even the strongest amongst us and can cause them a multitude of other problems from financial to emotional. We are deeply saddened, oh Lord, that many of these health problems are brought on by fallen humanity by polluting the environment to producing unsafe food and drinking water, driven often by greed. We pray, oh Lord, that you would stop this evil and bring forth thy swift judgement. We pray that you will have pity upon thy children by bringing forth healing miracles through faith. Increase our faith and trust in you alone so that we can witness these great healing miracles, not by “naming it and claiming it,” but by faith alone. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And the prayer of faith will cure the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up. And if he has committed sins, it will be forgiven him” (James 5:15).

Morning Prayer 9/25/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for being the one Constant in all that exists, the Holy One who never changes. We have observed where both political and religious dogma or policy positions are in a constant flux, changing constantly. As evil invades, mass confusion covers our world as an infected blanket smothering out anything and everything that holds to the unchangeable truth. We pray, oh Lord, that those who are called by your Name will hold on tightly to those inalienable truths passed down to us by our forefathers and the great men of God. We pray for our future and present leaders in the Church and the political arena to rediscover these beautiful truths that led past generations to walk in holiness, righteousness and dignity before a hopeless and confused world. We pray this in the glorious Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it” (Matthew 16:18).

Morning Prayer 9/24/2016

I hurry to my prayer closet this morning to hear a word from you, oh Lord, to make sense of what’s going on in the world. We all with unveiled faces see clearly that things are getting worse by the day, perhaps by the hour. We’re like a runaway train barreling down the mountain with no one to stop us; headed for the abyss. God help us. Any grandiose attempt by the current leadership to stop the descent will end in utter failure. On the other hand, we still trust in your Way, oh Lord. If humanity repents and turns back to the One True God, then the descent would surely be slowed. Praise God. Help us to work to that end by praying for and voting for the leader who stands opposed to the current direction of this country, and the world. Encourage all of your people to listen clearly to what the Spirit says and stop supporting those who would assimilate all religions to accept their perversions. We pray this in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty” (I Timothy 2:1-2).

Morning Prayer 9/23/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father who reigns today and for evermore. Oh Lord, we rejoice that one day soon you will judge man for how he has caused others to stumble into all manner of wickedness. We rejoice, oh Lord, that one day soon you will judge man for causing others to suffer all manner of affliction and even death. We long for your judgement upon those who are destroying our beautiful home, planet earth. In his arrogance and pride he boasts that he can reverse the damage he has already caused, yet he refuses to repent of his quest for the world’s assimilation of all people’s religious faiths in order to accept his many perversions. We beseech thee God of heaven and earth to bring forth thy swift judgement upon fallen humanity and rescue thy servants by giving them strength to stand firm in their continued witness to a dying world. We pray this in the powerful Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth” (Revelation 11:18).

Morning Prayer 9/22/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father glorious is your holy Name. As we enter our prayer closet today we are mindful of those who have been marked by society for something they have done in the past, or cultural environment they’ve been raised in, or some physical or mental limitations they exhibit. We pray for these so called untouchables who think there is no second chance for them and that things will never change in their pitiful lives. Let them see, oh Lord, that you came to give them a new life that will be accepted by you and all of your beloved children. Help them to see that truly old things will pass away and that all things will be made new. Let all of your children rejoice with the angels of heaven as these pitiful souls repent of their past life’s and turn to thee in faith. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (II Corinthians 5:17).

Morning Prayer 9/21/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father.  Thank you for your unlimited grace to those who believe. For indeed it was through your magnificent grace that you gave us the faith to believe in the first place. A dynamic faith that you are growing in us to stand firm against many different trials and a faith that allows miraculous healing along with seeing many other miracles. Thank you, oh Lord, for your unlimited grace of forgiveness that keeps picking us up when we fall and putting us back on the path of righteousness. We pray, oh Lord, that all of your children would be thankful for your unlimited grace and never boast as if their faith was from their own accomplishments. We praise your holy Name for this wonderful gift and pray that all would humbly receive it. And for those who are still weak in their faith, we pray that you will strengthen their faith to become totally dependent upon you and not this evil world. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9).

Morning Prayer 9/20/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father. We come humbly into thy presence this morning always seeking your counsel and comfort. We also come praising thy holy Name, thanking you for all that you have provided. Most of all we thank you for your love and knowing us better than we know ourselves. We must have confidence that as your chosen children nothing happens in our lives by accident, that every circumstance, that every relationship is significant and is used to strengthen us, to make us more like Christ. We pray that we would treat every circumstance and every relationship as if it came from the hand of God to teach us to love more, to forgive more, and to trust more. Yes, Lord we know that even the greatest suffering and tribulation can be used for our perfection so that in time our light will shine as bright as the noonday sun. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him” (James 1:12).

Morning Prayer 9/19/2016

Good Morning Heavenly Father. As we enter our prayer closet this morning we wonder what is the real hope of the world? What is the hope of her leaders? Is it riches? Is it fame? Is it putting forth some grand plan to unite the entire world together by accepting every man’s religion as the same? If so, then surely every person who holds his religion and specifically his faith as exclusive from the rest would be seen as a present and future terrorist. We pray, oh Lord, that you will raise up your children and strengthen them to stand for the exclusiveness of the Christian faith. Give them boldness to preach this exclusiveness letting everyone know that Jesus Christ is the Only Way and all other ways will lead them straight to hell. Give them courage to preach this message with sincere love in their hearts. This is our only recourse to stop the Islamic invasion and the grand plan of assimilation by the world’s leaders. We pray this in the powerful Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6).

Morning Prayer 9/18/2016

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for always leading us to make the right decision, not always based on empirical evidence, but on faith believing it’s the right thing to do. We have discovered over the years that decisions should be made in the best interest of others and not just self. Praise God. We have felt the awful trials from making decisions based purely on our own selfish desires passed off often times as some noble cause or the worldly axiom that we just need to be good to ourselves. As we face the days ahead, oh Lord, let every decision bring glory to your Name, which always brings great joy to our hearts. Praise God. Thank you for teaching us that selfishness will only bring forth a shallow short lived joy. We praise you today for all of your great lessons. Our prayer is that we continue to be good students in your schoolhouse of wisdom and knowledge. We pray this the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness” (Psalms 143:10).

Morning Prayer 9/17/2016

Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. You are the great I Am, the powerful One who holds all things together. We seek your counsel today. No matter who wins the election in our country nothing will really change unless you intervene by raising up thy people to stand firm against all ungodliness. The line has been drawn. We must no longer allow our children to be taught that homosexuality, abortion, psychiatric drugs, and religion is a choice.  Perversion, killing unborn children, taking mind altering drugs and serving a foreign god is not a choice. We pray for a spiritual revolution. We pray that you give all of thy children around the world backbone to stand firm against this virus that is overtaking the planet. We must teach them and us that we can say, “no.” We can withdraw our children from public schools; we can stop the Islamic invasion through immigration; we can shut down the large pharmaceutical companies that make mind altering drugs; and we can stop the millions of unborn children being killed [unborn children’s lives matter]. We pray this in the powerful Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“So then, brothers, stand firm and hold to the teachings we passed on to you, whether by word of mouth or by letter” (II Thessalonians 2:15, NIV).

Morning Prayer 9/16/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father we praise thy holy Name. Help us to never grieve the indwelling Spirit for which many have taken little thought. Yes, to grieve Him causes Him to cry. As Christians we should be sorely grieved and feel the awful pain of conviction and deep remorse if we cause Him to grieve. You have taught us, oh Lord, from thy anointed Word that corrupt communication, bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking, no matter what the excuse, will always grieve the indwelling Spirit, cause Him to cry. Lead us, oh Lord, to always be tender hearted, soft spoken in our communication and careful to demonstrate kindness to all, which is our sure defense in causing Him NOT to grieve. Thank you, dear Lord, for putting thy Spirit in us, which is our guarantee that we have been sealed unto the day of redemption, another mark of a true believer in-Christ. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption” (Ephesians 4:30).

Morning Prayer 9/15/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father we glorify your Holy Name. Thank you for calling us into your kingdom and placing thy Holy Spirit within each of us imparting many wonderful gifts to be used in kingdom work. We know that our immediate desire for kingdom work is another mark that we have been called. Praise God. And the demonstration of thy Spiritual gifts used in thy service is yet another. Oh Lord, most of your precious children start out good with great excitement for doing kingdom work, but some slip back into the world encumbered with worldly concerns. It’s these later we lift up to you in prayer this morning. We pray that they will return to their first love and allow you to take all of their concerns in this life, trusting you to set the priorities and establish their goals. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God” ((Luke 9:62).

Morning Prayer 9/14/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father how glorious is thy Name to be honored throughout eternity. Thank you Father for sending your Son to show us the Way. At times the path has been long and tedious, but our eyes have always been fixed on the goal our upward calling in Christ Jesus. Every step of the way we put off the old life with its selfishness, pride, and every other form of wickedness. To be made new in the attitude of our minds. Knowing full well that the only way to keep it off is by putting on the new life in Christ through faith and obedience to all of thy beautiful commands. Thank you, dear Lord, for always changing us, growing us from one degree of glory to another until that glorious Day when we reach perfection in Paradise. Thank you Lord that everything in this live is meant to perfect us and make us ready for thy everlasting Kingdom. Praise God. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus: That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness” (Ephesians 4:21-24).

Morning Prayer 9/13/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father, Holy and Righteous is your Name. We live in an anomalous world where building cyber relationships and sharing sacred doctrinal truth with unseen strangers has become the norm. Where judging others without removing the mote from thine own eye has also become the norm adding to a greater confusion that’s overcoming an ever increasing evil world. We pray for even greater discernment in our day where we are limited to reading only a person’s post or comment to determine their belief system and openness to receive the truth. We pray that those who have been blinded by the lies of the evil one would be exposed and could no longer infect thy precious children with their false doctrine. We pray that we would be careful in our cyber relationships not to give to the proclaimers of false doctrine our sacred truth, for it could cause a heated and vicious argument that would gain nothing, but could destroy others. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you” (Matthew 7:6).

Morning Prayer 9/12/2016

At the dawning of a new day we come quietly into our prayer closet not really knowing what to say, so we sit and listen, as the indwelling Spirit makes intercession for us. For we know in time, with all assurance, that after intercession is made on our behalf we will know how and what to pray. Unfortunately, many will not take the time or remove all the distractions, but continue on their way satisfied with a little memorized prayer. Oh Lord, search us today and help us to vocalize our most inner feelings and bring them into alignment with your will. Help us in our weakness to take thy will and put it into our lives; even if that will is contrary to our most precious desires. For we have learned long ago that our desires most often need to be subservient to the real needs of others. Help us to see the real need in others by taking the time to listen – really listen. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered” (Romans 8:26).

Morning Prayer 9/11/2016

Holy Father as we reflect upon what happened to America on this date so many years ago, one wonders how to pray. We do know in a moment in time this country was brought to a standstill and everyone from the greatest to the smallest was in utter shock and made fully awake. The following week across this nation every church was full as people of every stripe cried out to you for mercy. Immediately the country’s motto became “God bless America.” But since that time, oh Lord, our country has been lulled back to sleep with its leaders allowing and encouraging every form of vile evil to occupy our streets. We pray, oh Lord, that you will personally awaken this country of her many sins by raising up godly leaders to lead with honesty, integrity, and ministering to all its citizens. Then we shall all sing, “God bless America.” We pray this in the powerful Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land” (II Chronicles 7:14).

Morning Prayer 9/10/2016

We come into our prayer closet this morning seeking an audience with the most high God, Creator of all that exists. You know us better than anyone else. You know the body for which you fashioned for this eternal spirit. You are aware of the many pressures in the world that effect these beautiful, yet frail bodies, pressures from within and pressures from without. So we pray today for all of your children to remain strong in the spirit that’s been renewed in Christ. Help them to see that the spirit is much stronger than the body, which is realized by expressing love even when the physical body is under great distress. Thank you for showing us the power of love that overcomes every obstacle and brings glory to your Holy Name. On the other hand, we have seen that evil selfishness will distress both the spirit and body. Help us to always express love no matter the circumstance. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body” (II Corinthians 4:7-10).

Morning Prayer 9/9/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you dear Lord for standing with us at all times, but especially during the difficult periods of our life. You know, oh Lord, if we allow stress to build up in our life demonstrated often by bad behavior and physical problems it’s always more difficult to hear your blessed direction for our life. Calming down, staying focused on the moment, and especially your love for us indeed helps us to throw off the bondage of stress so we can hear you – to hear that still small voice. We pray for all of your children today that when stress comes from the increased pressure in the world that they will draw ever closer to you.  Help them to remember that you are a God of love and forgiveness understanding full well the pressure we rest under. Thank you Jesus! We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee” (Hebrews 13:5).

Morning Prayer 9/8/2016

Our Father who art in heaven we praise thy Holy Name for being with us every moment of every day. How glorious is thy Way. If we truly lived in the moment, we would take no thought of tomorrow. If we truly lived one day at a time we would not be anxious about tomorrow. Teach us through thy indwelling Holy Spirit to live that way. We know the world mocks this way for they always live in the past and the future rarely taking thought of only today. They simply miss the moment and most often are overcome by anxiety and depression. We pray, oh Lord, that you would continue to teach us your Way so that we can truly enjoy the moment, the moment of every day. We pray this in the Wonderful Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof” (Matthew 6:34).

Morning Prayer 9/7/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for your providential care. We praise you for ministering to our every need. We also praise you by giving humanity great and wonderful principles to live by to work hard and live within their means. Yet, we are so grieved that so many in our day choose not to work. They have fallen into the trap of depending on the government or others to supply their needs without working. It also leads to a life of laziness, which soon becomes a habit. Or they have been led into a life of crime taking from others to supply their needs. We pray that the government would stop this insanity of social welfare and spend its resources in developing employment opportunities for all its citizens. We pray that all people would experience the joy and satisfaction of a good day’s work. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat” (II Thessalonians 3:10).

Morning Prayer 9/6/2016

Good morning Holy Righteous Father. We praise thee for loving all your children and hoping that none would be lost. We are mindful of those family and friends who once called upon your Name, oh Lord, but have fallen back into the ways of the world. We are deeply grieved, dear Lord, that their bad behavior has gone unchecked and has increased expediently. We pray, oh Lord, that you give us an open door to reach out to them in love that would be accepted as genuine. We pray, dear Lord, that you would put your blessed words in us to turn them from the error of their way. We will be overjoyed if they would repent and be forgiven for their many sins. We will rejoice in a restored relationship with those who had backslidden and glorify your holiness. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him; Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins” (James 5:19-20).

Morning Prayer 9/5/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father we come ever so humbly into thy glorious presence. The bright light of your glory makes us think little of our pain and the many problems that plague our world. We find comfort in thy presence and long to be with you throughout eternity. Although we live here in the body as foreigners of a distant country, we know that our citizenship is in heaven. So we pray that we will live our life before this world as true ambassadors representing our King in a way that would always bring you glory and honor. Help us to always speak boldly of thy Gospel and the riches of our heavenly Kingdom. We pray that our inner light of thy indwelling Spirit would shine through us ever so brightly even in the midst of great trials and tribulations. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And [pray] for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak” (Ephesians 6:19-20).

Morning Prayer 9/4/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father Creator of heaven and earth and all that exists. Thank you Father for sending your Son Jesus as the Christ, which means Messiah the only One who comes to deliver the world from its sin. Only the divine everlasting Son from heaven could ever bring salvation to the entire world through faith. Thank you for His death and resurrection proving that Jesus is the Christ, the only true path to salvation. We pray that all other world religions would have their eyes opened to this truth and would be convinced that denying Jesus as the Christ shows that they are the antichrist. To deny the divinity of the Father and the Son proves that they are the antichrist. Give every Christian courage to proclaim openly that the Muslim religion and all of its followers are antichrist who are bringing a great scourge upon the world paving the way for the New World Order and its Antichrist. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son” (I John 2:22).

Morning Prayer 9/3/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father. How many times we are drawn to the latest news stories and its accompanying commentary. How many times we have had our ears tuned to the latest gossip or conspiracy theory. How many times have we eagerly listened to those who claimed to speak for God. And after many years of listening and assimilation we have also listened to our own conscience. Indeed, we are a race of listeners. In fact, the entire Bible was written by listeners. Indeed, a different kind of listener, one who listened to the indwelling Holy Spirit of God, unfiltered and direct from the throne room of God. As we enter our prayer closet, oh Lord, help us to only listen to the unfiltered voice of thy Holy Spirit confirmed by thy anointed Word, the Bible. Lead us to continually put thy Word alone deep into our heart to be used by thy indwelling Spirit to correct and confirm. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction” (II Peter 3:15-16).

Morning Prayer 9/2/2016

Holy Righteous Father we come late into our prayer closet today allowing you to re-organize our day. We trust that you will always give us the right priorities to accomplish in your time and not ours. At times we may need to simply put down our predetermined schedules and allow you to set the agenda one step at a time. The journey may be long and difficult but we put our trust in you. When total service to others becomes the priority then lead us to perform it in Christian love without any concern about other things not being accomplished. Thank you for teaching us through thy anointed Word and thy indwelling Spirit the true meaning of self-giving love without ever expecting anything in return. Thank you for teaching us that following your agenda is admitting that your ways are far more superior than our ways. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts” (Isaiah 55:8-9).

Morning Prayer 9/1/2016

Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. All things come to an end including our life upon this beautiful planet. Some say don’t think about it, while others think about it all the time. Some work hard to pass on their wealth or the legacy of a life well lived for the betterment of mankind. Oh Lord, as your committed servants we seek to leave behind not riches, heirlooms, or human achievements, but a legacy of always teaching the truth to help your beloved children grow up spiritually in you. We pray, oh Lord, that we would leave a legacy of always standing for truth and righteousness even if it’s in the face of violent opposition. Help us to number our days always being careful to bring glory to your Name alone as our beloved King of kings and Lord of lords. As a true Christian we have no fear of death for we know that it’s simply the doorway to heaven and your everlasting presence. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Let thy work appear unto thy servants, and thy glory unto their children. And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us: and establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it” (Psalms 90:16-17).

Morning Prayer 8/31/2016

Good morning God of all wisdom we come once again into our prayer closet with empty hands. We come with no earthly wisdom or thoughts of our own, but cast them down before thee as vain imaginations and worthless knowledge. We come before thee as humble servants desiring that every foolish and vain thought be taken captive not allowing it develop a system of philosophy or theology to direct our life. Honestly, most of us have collected many numerous sayings from the world to direct our path. We pray, oh Lord, that you lead us to seek your wisdom daily allowing it alone to direct our path. We pray that all of your beautiful commands will sink deep into our hearts allowing them to be etched into our memories as living guideposts. Lead us, oh Lord, to never add or take away anything from thy blessed Word, but permit thee alone to interpret and apply it to our lives. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ” (II Corinthians 10:5).

Morning Prayer 8/30/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father we enter thy presence weeping for thy children. So many are caught in an evil web spawned by the world. They simply cannot see their captivity and spurn those who try to enlighten them of their horrific condition. We pray, oh Lord, that you would open the eyes of all thy children to this blinding captivity. Let them see how they are following the world in its provocative dress, its lust for wealth and fame, its continuous desire for entertainment, its dependence on psychiatric drugs, and its trust in government to care for their every need. We know that the only thing that will awaken them and prepare them for eternity is the very thing their prophets teach that they will escape. Open their eyes, oh Lord, that we are already entering the Great Tribulation and repentance is essential for standing firm. We pray this in the powerful Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory” (Matthew 24:29-30).

Morning Prayer 8/29/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father the One who reigns over all His creation, we honor and praise you. Thank you for teaching us through thy Holy Scripture and thy indwelling Spirit all the things necessary for establishing and maintaining a loving relationship with others. Although others can truly be difficult and quite unwilling at times to have a loving relationship, we pray, oh Lord, that you will help us to continue demonstrating sincere love from the heart. You have taught us that no matter how difficult it becomes we must continue to be kind. Yes, love is kind. You have graciously shown us that being kind can even disarm the violent aggressor and calm the oppressor. It has the power to open closed doors and bring the strong to their knees. Give us courage to demonstrate your love through kindness. Help us to stop following the children of darkness and be true children of light. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil” (Luke 6:35).

Morning Prayer 8/28/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you Lord for your amazingly great sacrifice of your precious life in the flesh for others. Indeed, it is the “others” that sheds light on just how incredible this sacrifice was for all eternity. Love compels us to risk our life for the protection of those whom we love and we see this as a sacrifice. Love may even compel us to risk our life for the protection of a good person and we would see that as a great sacrifice. But, you oh Lord, sacrificed your righteous life not only for the good man, but for the vilest of creatures stepped in immorality and an abomination of the human race. Thank you Jesus for your sacrifice that all may be offered salvation. We pray, oh Lord, that our personal sacrifice for others would never be diminished even when we are viciously attacked or wrongfully accused. Although such a sacrifice would pale in comparison to yours, it would take great strength and courage for which we now pray in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:7-8).

Morning Prayer 8/27/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father whose wisdom is far above thy creation. We are so grieved that humanity continually strives for peace and harmony, but will never obtain it apart from your divine plan. For we know, oh Lord, that only obedience to your beautiful commands will ever produce true peace; and only a universal commitment to you in faith would ever produce harmony. We pray dear Lord that all of your children would see that anyone promising peace and harmony apart from you exclusively is of the devil and an Antichrist. We pray that your commands would supersede any of man’s foolish attempts at creating the perfect society. We know that obedience to your commands will never save our soul, but it will demonstrate the children’s love for their Heavenly Father and produce peace and harmony among thy children. We pray that all of thy blessed children study thy commands, obey, and remain faithful. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“If ye love me, keep my commandments” (John 14:15).

Morning Prayer 8/26/2016

Good morning Father, Holy and Righteous is your Name. Teach us daily from thy beautiful law all the things your elect children should do as obedient followers of Christ. As God’s holy people help us to guard everything we say to others, for indeed we are children of light in a very dark world. Lead us not to participate in foul or obscene language. Keep us from all foolish talk and coarse joking. Help us to be a bright shining light to those who walk in darkness. As evil covers the world and humanity grows even more immoral then lead us to grow even more holy allowing our light to shine ever so brightly. For indeed we know there will be a great polarization between the children of light and the sons of darkness before thy glorious return. Therefore, help us to stand firm without ever wavering from thy truth. We pray this in the Righteous Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth)” (Ephesians 5:8-9).

Morning Prayer 8/25/2016

Good Morning Heavenly Father we seek an audience with you. We bring to you this morning all of our oppression caused by such an evil world that’s getting worse by the minute. From physical maladies to mental instability the whole world is caught in the grips of the evil one. The love of most has grown cold leaving only a flicker of warmth and light coming from thy true children. We pray that you strengthen your children to throw off this oppression by extending their love to everyone they come into contact and praising you publicly with sincere hearts. Give us every opportunity in these dark days to show our love through good works by truly helping others in their distress and giving you the glory. We pray that this evil establishment would not keep us from serving others in your Name through their godless regulations. We pray this in the Powerful Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works” (James 2:18).

Morning Prayer 8/24/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father of Love and Forgiveness. Thank you for making every day new with no regrets or haunting sins. Help us to always lift our head high, not in pride, but in the assurance that we have been forgiven of all past wrongs. Help us to never hang our heads in shame. Praise God. As the beautiful sun breaks through the dark ominous clouds, give us strength and determination to complete all of our scheduled task for today. Help us, oh Lord, to show forth your love every moment of every day, even in the midst of our busiest and most stressful times. Let our joy always break forth in singing and praise to thy Holy Name. Help us to always look forward and never look back. We pray, oh Lord, that we will be true imitators of You and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us. We pray this in the Glorious Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God” (Ephesians 5:1-2, NIV).

Morning Prayer 8/23/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father we always live to honor and praise you for all that you have done. Thank you Lord for the gift of communication. Unlike other species on the planet, you have enabled us to form complex sentences, supported with an amazing body language, to deliver our thoughts to others. However, we have discovered at a very early age that our communication can be used to hurt people; the very people that you have created in your image. Thank you Lord that you have taught us a better way; to build others up with our communication and not tear down. Help us, oh Lord, to always use this wonderful gift to glorify you. Make us conscious of every word we speak and the revealing body language that we display. Show us from thy Holy Scripture how to impart grace to others through this divine gift of communication. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption” (Ephesians 4:29-30).

Morning Prayer 8/22/2016

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you Lord for counting us worthy to suffer for you and the cause of Christ. There was a time when fault finding or the aggressive questioning of our theological position would cause us great pain, but thanks to your abiding grace we have overcome. With the founding of social media and the assimilation of all denominations, religions, and the aggressive input by non-believers we have all felt the sting of callous and hateful rhetoric. We have even heard filthy language and demeaning remarks from those who claim to be your children, but you have given us grace to bear it and respond in loving rebuke. Thank you Lord that you are training us to withstand not only verbal abuse, but to stand firm against physical persecution. Praise God. In this day of rebellion and the assimilation of all faiths we pray that you will help us to stand firm in our convictions given to us by your anointed Word correctly interpreted by thy indwelling Spirit. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds. Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin” (Hebrews 12:3-4).

Morning Prayer 8/21/2016

Holy Righteous Father we come humbly once again into thy presence through thy indwelling Spirit who always leads us in prayer. We almost never know what we are going to pray, but always trust in thee to lead us. In fact, we know that you would never lead us into temptation, but you are always there to deliver us from evil and the snare of the devil. Praise God. It is thy indwelling Spirit that brings deep conviction on His children when they pass the line and even think about lying or committing a trespass. Yet, we see many people in our day even in positions of national leadership claiming to be your children, but have no problem lying and committing acts of gross immorality. We pray that you will lead all people both small and great to repentance and public confession. If indeed they have thy indwelling Spirit lead them to feel the greatest power of conviction. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen” (Matthew 6:13).

Morning Prayer 8/20/2016

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for your many blessings and miracles that brings tears of great joy to our hearts. We wonder how many miracles and blessings we miss, because of unbelief or because we simply aren’t looking. We know that you work all things together for good, but often times we miss that good, because we aren’t looking. Give us eyes, oh Lord, to see when seemingly bad things happen, they could be meant to bring greater blessings and miracles into our lives. Teach us to always look beyond our present difficulties to see your hand at work in our lives. Indeed, you have taught us through thy Holy Scripture to be thankful in all things knowing how you can use everything for our eternal benefit and/or the benefit of others. We pray for wisdom, dear Lord, and that the eyes of our hearts would be opened wide to see thy divine plan in every situation. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him” (James 1:5).

Morning Prayer 8/19/2016

Holy Righteous Farther we come quickly into thy presence this morning with heavy hearts. When tragedy strikes let our heart not be overwhelmed with grief. Let not vengeance enter into our mind, rather drive us immediately to our knees in prayer crying out for mercy and healing. We pray, oh Lord, that you will stretch forth thy healing hand and place it upon all of your dear little children who have been struck down tragically by some horrible illnesses or physical malady. Oh Lord let thy justice prevail if it was caused by the hand of neglect or by the hand of evil. We know all little children are precious in thy sight and trust that you will intervene making everything right, for indeed you are a God of great love and mercy. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him” (James 5:14-15).

Morning Prayer 8/18/2016

Holy Righteous Father we come humbly into thy presence this morning. With the devastating flooding in Louisiana; the massive fires in California; and, the latest plague to descend upon Florida one wonders how to pray. Oh Lord, please protect thy beautiful children with thy powerful outstretched hand. Care for them as a Father cares for his ailing child. For indeed you are the Rock of their Salvation, their Fortress and Deliverer. And for those in rebellion against thee let thy judgement rain down not to crush and destroy, but to open their eyes. Let them feel your rebuke from turning away from thee. Let them see how powerful the deception is and how much they have become the slaves of an evil system. We will not put our trust in anyone or anything, but only rely upon YOU as our Savior and God. We pray this in the Powerful Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And he said, The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; The God of my rock; in him will I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour; thou savest me from violence” (II Samuel 22:2-3).

Morning Prayer 8/17/2016

Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Yes, Father, we pray that you will help us to do thy will spoken so plainly in Holy Scripture. Help us to be obedient to all of thy beautiful commands. Help us, oh Lord to always be filled with thy Holy Spirit sharing with others what you have so freely given to us. Lead us to always quote the appropriate Scripture and sing spiritual songs one to another. Always lead us to sing and make music in our hearts to YOU, oh Lord. In so doing we know that we will be expressing the great joy that you have put into our hearts by thy Holy Spirit. Always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the Name of Jesus Christ. Help us to always be submissive to one another following the biblical instructions for maintaining a proper relationship. We pray this in the loving Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit” (Emphasis 5:17-18).

Morning Prayer 8/16/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father of peace. Each of us has been given our own little piece of the world. It may not be much in the eyes of the world, but it’s ours, given to us by a gracious God. We have learned to be thankful in all things. Every day we are thankful for the peace and quiet of a safe neighborhood in a world that’s full of riots, terrorism, and wars. But most of all we are thankful for the peace we have in our hearts that defies understanding. No longer is there a wall of hostility between us. No longer are we overcome by the stress of a busy and complex world. No longer are we taken captive by depression that runs rampant in a lost world. No longer are we worried about the future or grieved by the past, but rest comfortably in thy peace. Only though belief and dependence upon Christ can this peace be obtained. We pray that the world will see this before it’s too late. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).

Morning Prayer 8/15/2016

Almighty God who reigns over His Kingdom and all that exists, we ask that you intervene in the affairs of humanity by not allowing it to slip any deeper into the abyss of immorality. Oh Lord, we beech thee to expose the evil deeds of those in leadership for all to plainly see. Raise up others, oh Lord, who has never bowed a knee to the secular god of this age; who has never waded in the waters of deception or spoken lies of any kind. Let your judgement fall down upon this country and the world to open the eyes of the blind. Through thy Holy Spirit convict the world of its gross immorality and expose every form of evil. Oh Lord, give your children great strength and courage to proclaim the simple truths of yours Gospel. Father God, please take your power and begin to reign in the hearts of all men, women, and children. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever” (Revelation 11:15).

Morning Prayer 8/14/2016

Holy Righteous Father we long to hear from you this morning. To feel thy presence; to reach out and touch the face of God. Without You there is an empty feeling in our hearts and the joy of our salvation is missing. Nothing in this world can take the place of your loving presence so we cry out to thee in agony. We seek an audience with our King. Only when we truly let go of the things of this world can we catch a glimpse of thee. Only when we stop trying to build the perfect world through a flawed political system can we draw closer to thee. Yes, Lord when we come empty handed offering our self as a living sacrifice can we see thee high and lifted up; can we see the light of your glory. Praise God the joy of our salvation returns knowing that it is you who will make all things perfect in your time. Praise God. We pray this happily in the glorious Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service” (Romans 12:1).

Morning Prayer 8/13/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father. As we look out on the horizon this morning the sky is ominous. As we look out to the future horizon coming upon the world we can only see more sinful perversion as humanity moves further away from You. The sacredness of following God’s perfect will is exchanged for following man’s will. Teach us thy will, oh Lord. Show us once again all of your beautiful commands so that we can hide them in our hearts. Then lead us to teach them to our children and grandchildren for without them there will no longer be a moral anchor and the ship of humanity will be cast adrift into a sea of immorality. Yes, Lord lead all of your children to be teachers of thy perfect will instead of allowing their children to be taught only by the world through their books and movies. Help us to leave behind a legacy of truth. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up” (Deuteronomy 6:6-7).

Morning Prayer 8/12/2016

Good morning Father. Thank you for the power of the Cross. It’s proven that nothing will open the eyes of the unbeliever like the message of the Cross. Although miracles, signs and wonders appear to open the eyes of the unbeliever it has no power to change his heart. It has no power to make a person into a new creation. In the same way fine sounding arguments will have no power to save his soul. Yes, Lord, it is the simple message of the Cross that will lead the unbeliever to salvation. Praise God. We pray that all of your children will understand this truth and not follow the ways of Satan and the world to lead people to You. We pray that they will put the message of the Cross in their hearts and upon their lips to be shared with everyone they come into contact. For we know that Satan and his Antichrist system will use signs, miracles, and fine sounding arguments to lead the entire world astray. God forbid. We pray this in the powerful Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God” (I Corinthians 1:18).

Morning Prayer 8/11/2016

Holy Righteous Father we have great need for thee every hour for we live in a day of great evil. We find so many who are unable to discern the good from evil and are easily swept away by a flood of deception. Our Spirit, oh Lord, is sorely grieved. We pray that thy children will grow up by becoming skillful in the interpretation and use of the Word of Righteousness. For many are still babes for their knowledge is based only on what they have been told to believe and have not allowed the Word of Righteousness to change their behavior or give them a solid theological belief system. They have no discernment. We pray, oh Lord that those who are mature in their faith and are able to properly discern the lies and deceptions of our day will speak forth loudly and not simply choose one political party over another. Give us great courage to discern every lie and expose every deception. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil” (Hebrews 5:13-14).

Morning Prayer 8/10/2016

Holy Righteous Father we come humbly into thy presence seeking your advice. We have felt the agony and despair when we have listened to others who claimed to have the correct advice and did not, but sent us down the wrong path robbing us of both time and resources. We have heard their lies and deception and it has broken our hearts. At times we have felt like Job with his many advisers, always giving him the wrong advice on something they knew nothing about. Oh Lord, give us ears to hear thy still small voice. For we seek your advice alone knowing that you truly know what is best for us even if it doesn’t feel like it at the time. Teach us, oh Lord, to not hang on to things or to others so tightly, but be willing to let go and trust You. Lead us, dear Lord, to always do what is best for others even if it’s not what we desire. We need great discernment. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“I will praise the Lord, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me. I have set the Lord always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken” (Psalms 16:7-8).

Morning Prayer 8/9/2016

Good morning Father, please show us how to relish every moment in time. To no longer be concerned about the past or worried about the future. Help us to live in the moment trusting you with all of our plans. Although they often change let us not be troubled, but accept each change as the hand of God directing us to be used in the divine plan. Help us, oh Lord, to never use our time in godless pursuits or worldly entertainment, which has no eternal benefit for ourselves or for others. Keep us dear Lord from being a slave to our technologies, which often times strangles intimate relationships. Deliver us, oh Lord, from the time consuming slavery of social media, on the other hand, open up the beauty of nature walks, endless meditation upon thy Word, and timeless prayer sessions. We believe living in the moment prepares us for eternity where the past and the future is no longer relevant. We pray this in the glorious Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night” (Psalms 1:1-2).

Morning Prayer 8/8/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father the only One who is worthy of our praise. We do praise you at the dawning of a new day where once again you have made all things new putting joy within our hearts. Amen. Thank you Lord for delivering us from all the so called emotional baggage that had kept us down in times past. Worry, guilt, loneliness, depression, along with many other emotional problems can no longer keep thy precious children down unable to experience the joy of their salvation. Praise God. As we enter our new day lead us to do thy will for we are much more than just productive drones, but are your children called for a unique purpose in this life to fulfill our destiny. Indeed, a destiny to love and serve others that you have purposely put into our lives. Help us dear Lord to never miss this great calling. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord who was our perfect Role Model in laying His life down for others. Amen

“Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren” (I John 3:16).

Morning Prayer 8/7/2016

Holy Righteous Father we long to see the fulfillment of thy Kingdom here on earth as it is in heaven. No more pain, no more suffering under your loving Leadership with no lies, deception, or cruelty. Indeed, it would be a time of great praise and worship. We pray Father that our home here on earth will always be a house of praise and worship that all passing by will know that thy children dwell within. Help us, oh Lord, to be a light to our community and a voice of hope to those suffering the afflictions of an evil world. Let thy Gospel always be upon our lips as we pass through a dark world being a banner of truth and love. Although we may never have much of the world’s goods, we pray that what we do have will always be kept clean and well maintained to show forth the glory of God. For indeed cleanliness is next to godliness. We pray this in the blessed Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven” (Matthew 5:14-16).

Morning Prayer 8/6/2016

Holy Righteous Father we come late into our prayer closet this morning. Thank you Father God for your great mercy and loving forgiveness so unlike the world that never forgets a trespass. Thank you, oh Lord, for teaching us how to give godly forgiveness. You have taught us through thy indwelling Spirit to never bring up the trespass again to the offending person; to never tell others of the trespass (except under special circumstances); and, to never dwell on the trespass so that the devil can win the victory. We know from thy Word, oh Lord, that true forgiveness comes only through repentance and confession, so please continue to lead us to confess our trespasses to you and to one another. Continue, oh Lord, to allow thy Holy Spirit to convict us of any and all trespasses bringing forth sorrow that leadeth to repentance and confession. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him. As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us” (Psalms 103:11-12).

Morning Prayer 8/5/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for showing us that true believers in Christ simply cannot go without their secret prayers to You. Opening our hearts to be examined and ministered to by the risen Lord; coming as we are to be comforted in our affliction; and receiving our marching orders for another day. We as believers know that God is here through the indwelling Spirit eager to listen to our honest prayers from the heart, not from a long litany of meaningless words and phrases learned over a lifetime of study and observation. Oh Lord we cry out to thee today praising thy glorious Name, seeking only our daily provisions; forgiveness for our ever present sins; and a heart of love to forgive and minister to others. Thank you Lord for giving us what is needful to say to you in prayer and ears to hear what thy Spirit says to our spirit. We offer this prayer to thee in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly” (Matthew 6:6).

Morning Prayer 8/4/2016

Good morning Heavenly Father who is worthy of our praise and worship. As we enter our prayer closet we know that you are always with us; no matter what happens in the near and distant future you have promised to never leave us. Praise God. Thank you for teaching us daily to live and do beyond what we could have ever envisioned. Thank you for your daily conviction by thy indwelling Spirit making us more patient, more forbearing, and more willing to go the extra mile. Thank you for teaching us how to love. We know, oh Lord, this is all from you. It is you that’s fashioning us into the perfect image of thy beloved Son. To see the daily changes in our lives even after all these years brings tears of great joy to our hearts proving once again that you have never left us. Praise God for your beloved work in us though thy Holy Spirit. We pray this in the wonderful Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (II Corinthians 5:17).

Morning Prayer 8/3/2016

Good morning righteous Father who gave us the only true path to righteousness and unity among believers. We pray, oh Lord, that your children called by your Name will see the truth that lies behind the lies and deception of the DNC. Help them to see the truth of where the world is headed. Help them to see the new world agenda that on the surface looks wonderful with walls coming down, people coming together, and a brave new world being built with peace and harmony. It’s now in all of our movies and books preparing everyone to accept this new world that recognizes every man’s religion and moral compass as legitimate expressions of humanity. Help them to see, oh Lord, that all of this will lead to the elevation of self and denial of you. No longer will man be dependent upon you alone, but will trust in self to build his brave new world. We pray that you open the eyes of your people in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword” (Matthew 10:34). Please read through verse 39.

Morning Prayer 8/2/2016

Good morning Merciful Father in Heaven. Thank you Lord for the power of turning the other cheek and going the extra mile. In a violent world with so many who would give it no second thought of eliminating or using us for their own personal satisfaction it causes most to take pause. Help us dear Lord to have great discernment and ears to hear thy indwelling Spirit to know when it’s necessary to stand our ground not only for our own self-preservation, but more importantly for the protection of others. On the other hand, let us know when we should turn the other cheek and go the extra mile for indeed it will demonstrate great power to melt hearts and convict others of thy great mercy and love. Let not our impatience or fear dictate our decision to follow thy lead, but help us, oh Lord, to trust in thee. We pray this in the Merciful Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also” (Matthew 5:38-39).

Morning Prayer 8/1/2016

Holy Righteous Father we come humbly into thy glorious presence. Forgive us Father for having so much righteous anger toward people who demonstrate such a high degree of pride where they claim that their knowledge and deep spirituality is so far above their peers. We pray, oh Lord, that you would give us words that would not harm, but would deflate their pride by allowing them to see that pride is so blinding and sets them up for a fall. Let them see dear Lord that spiritual pride opens the door to being deceived by the evil one. We pray Father that you would teach us true humility. Give us a teachable spirit knowing that all Wisdom and knowledge comes from thee and that many times it’s spoken through one of your least recognized servants. What a blessing that has been over the years to recognize thy words spoken through others. We pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you” (I Peter 5:5-7).
