Heavenly Father, Thank you for your new mercies on today. Pour out Your Spirit like Living Water upon your people!💦 I pray that Lost Souls will come to Christ in droves; Unforgiving Hearts of stone💔turned to Hearts of flesh!💗 I pray for spiritual and physical strongholds to be broken; captive minds set FREE from debilitating and defeating thoughts🤯; and that pains of the past will have no more power over the present.⛓

Father God, move upon all believers—drawing them to be totally surrendered to the Will of Christ, walking in obedience and living Transformed Lives—no longer succumbing to the ways of this world and the lusts of the flesh. I plead The Blood of Jesus over every diabolical plan, plot, trick, trap and attack of the enemy against the people of God! I pray that every Demonic spirit that raises up against Your Anointed be cast back into to pits of hell to torment no more!👿🤛🏽

Father God, I pray and plead The Blood🩸of JESUS over every soul sincerely SEEKING Your Face and declare that every place our feet trod wickedness will cease, demonic activity is eradicated and the Power of the Presence of The Holy Spirit will break every binding chain⛓, deport depression, uplift the down cast, and the possessed will be set FREE IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS!☝🏾🙌🏼

Father God, use this time of crisis and chaos to send A Fresh Wind 💨 and Fresh Fire 🔥 to Consume those things that are not like You and to breath New Life into seemingly dead 💀 situations in our homes🏘, in our churches⛪️, our Schools🏫, our workplaces 🏪, our communities👨‍👩‍👦, our nation🇺🇸, and world🌎!

Father God, Raise up a standard that will separate the true believers from the deceivers—allowing those who truly have a personal relationship with You to move in holy boldness, power, authority and anointing—releasing the sweet fragrance of your unconditional love as we go forward in Faith and in Victory!🙌🏼☝🏾

It’s in the strong and mighty Name above every name, JESUS, I pray and praise always! Amen🙏🏽 ~M. Ford

Heavenly Father, You alone are our help and hope in times like these. In You alone we find Strength to endure. You alone are our Rock of Ages, our Anchor that grips, our Balm of Gilead, our Battle Ax, our Redeemer, our Solid Rock!

Heal those who are sick and in need of a healing touch from The Master physician. Grant peace to those who are emotionally distraught, confused and living in tumultuous situations and devastation. Comfort and Mend the broken hearted. Restore shattered relationships between husbands and wives, children and parents, family and friends.

Father, we know you to be our battle ax in times of a battle and our shelter in times of a storm! We decree and declare the Victory as we reclaim and take back those things that have been taken captive and held hostage by the enemy!

This day We choose to have an attitude of gratitude, and a Spirit of Praise as we move forward in Faith—not putting our trust in things of this world, but having the wisdom to put all of our faith and trust in YOU—Our Sovereign Savior, Prince of Peace, Bread of Heaven, Alpha and Omega, The Great I AM!

You are Lord of ALL and Over ALL…hear the hearts cry of Your people this day! It’s in the mighty and matchless name of Jesus The Christ I pray and praise always. Amen🙏🏽~M. Ford
