“The Good Fight”

“The Good Fight“

Father God, help your children to be persistent in prayer, unwavering in your word, and ever ready to fight the good fight of Faith!

Deploy an army of Prayer Warriors ready, willing and able to wage war against the enemy on their knees!

Raise up a remnant of believers that will be fearless and faithful; casting off every vain imagination, pride of life, unholy habits, and wicked ways! Anoint us with power, authority and with holy boldness to stand steadfast and unmovable—unwavering in our faith in perilous times such as these. No longer bound and defeated by political correctness, social status, and worldly ways; but Warriors willing to persevere in fasting and prayer until we reclaim our families, communities, nation and world for Christ!

Hear our humble cry on this day, Oh God, and heal our Land! It’s in Jesus’ mighty, matchless and miraculous name of JESUS I pray! Amen 🙏🏽 ~M. Ford

“And he told them a parable to the effect that they ought always to pray and not lose heart. And will not God give justice to his elect, who cry to him day and night? Will he delay long over them? I tell you, he will give justice to them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?” (Luke 18:1, 7-8)

“SOVEREIGN”

SOVEREIGN

Oh Lord, my God! How excellent is your name! How excellent is your name in all the earth…For there is none like you!

For you sit High upon you heavenly throne, but you look low and Nothing escapes your holy vision!

You see the hurt, hatred, anger, pain, sickness and Chaos that’s covering our Land right now. Father, We know that You alone are SOVEREIGN and can Fix that which is broken and malfunctioning as a result of this fallen world.

We come Crying Out…with Unified Minds and Consecrated Hearts, and On One accord…have mercy on us and FIX IT, Lord Jesus!

We don’t look to the government, the legislators, or any other mortal man…We look to YOU, Oh God—The Faithful, True and Righteous God—to right the wrongs, bring the unjust to Justice, heal the sick, set captives free and restore order from chaos!

For you said in your Word that IF YOUR PEOPLE, who are called by your name, will Humble themselves and PRAY, SEEK YOUR FACE, TURN from their Wicked Ways…THEN….YOU WILL HEAR US FROM HEAVEN, FORGIVE OUR SINS and HEAL OUR LAND.

Father God, Our Land needs healing…Heal our MINDS…So that we have the Mind of Christ! Heal our Hearts…so that we have compassion and love for one another. Heal our Hands…so that we will be quick to Help others and not Harm.

Father God, You indeed are phenomenal! Miraculous and glorious are your works! Nothing is beyond your reach and nothing can escape your Holy vision!

Allow a fresh wind and fresh fire of Your Spirit to sweep over our land like wildfire—starting in our homes, churches, communities and spreading throughout the world!

Father, break our hearts with the things that break Your heart. Move within us in such a mighty way that men, women, boys and girls will be loosed and set free from those things that bind and prohibit them from being all You have predestined and ordained them to be, in the mighty Name of Jesus!

Father, transform hearts and minds so that your people will be compelled to LIVE HOLY—presenting their bodies as a living sacrifice—putting to death any unholy habits and wicked ways preventing a closer walk with Christ.

Father God, Move us to an even deeper and intimate relationship with our Savior—becoming closer than close to HIM so that His WILL becomes our will, and His WILL be done.

Strengthen CHRISTIANS all over the world to rise up and take hold of THE ONE who has taken hold of them! Help believers all around the world to experience Christ as The Prince of Peace in the middle of life’s storm; as a Battle AX to fight all of their battles; a Strong Tower where the righteous can run in and find safety; as a Deliverer from any unholy habits and who can break any stronghold or demonic influence; and as a Comforter who can mend any broken heart and bring joy in the midst of sorrow!

Father, loose the shackles on our feet and free us up in the spirit to dance like David danced—praising you with our whole hearts because You are a Phenomenal God!

It’s in the mighty and matchless name of JESUS, who is the Christ, I pray—AMEN!

THE GREAT “I AM”

THE GREAT “I AM”

Heavenly Father, As we stand at the threshold of a New Year, we put all of our hope, trust and faith in You, who made the heavens and the earth by simply saying, “Let there be”!

I pray that the hearts of the people will be turned back to You, Oh God, and that the scriptures will once again guide our decision making and daily living.

For I know that you are the only light of hope we have in this present darkness; and the only remedy for our sin-sick world.

Nevertheless, I fervently pray that people of ALL colors, rich and poor alike, will seek to know You, The True & Living God, in the beauty of Your holiness!

Jehovah God, Open blinded eyes to the Truth of Your Word. Help us to recognize, discern and defuse the tricks and traps of the enemy before they divide, lay waste, conquer and destroy.

Sharpen our hearing to be sensitive to Your voice of divine direction; and set guard around our hearts and minds so that our desires and thoughts line up with Your Will and mirror Your Word.

For you alone, Oh God, exercise loving kindness, righteousness and judgment throughout the land! There is nothing too hard for You.

Father God, Hear our heart’s cry and plea on this new day filled with Your new mercies! It’s In Jesus’ name I pray and praise always…Hallelujah and Amen!🙏🏽~M. Ford

“Thus says the LORD: “Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, Let not the mighty man glory in his might, Nor let the rich man glory in his riches; But let him who glories glory in this, That he understands and knows Me, That I am the LORD, exercising lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth. For in these I delight,” says the LORD.” (Jeremiah‬ ‭9:23-24‬)
