“For Your Glory!”

“For Your Glory!”

Heavenly Father, As we launch out into a new day, we ask that you go before us to prepare the way. Line us up with your divine purpose as we put all our hope and trust in YOU—The One who make all things possible!

Father—lead, guide, direct and protect each of us as we go forward in this day. Allow us to accomplish every good work for Your glory! We proclaim that every trick and trap the enemy has set is spoiled, rendered useless, and defeated in the mighty and matchless name of Jesus Christ!

Father, we surrender our wills to yours; allow your Spirit to fall fresh upon us so that we are empowered to accomplish every good work in your name. Let the words of our mouths and the meditations of our hearts be acceptable in Your sight this day, Oh Lord, for You alone are our strength and redeemer! We love, adore and honor You, Abba! Have Your Way…In Jesus’ name…Amen! 🙌🏼☝🏾🙏🏽~M. Ford

“Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in Your sight, O LORD, my strength and my Redeemer.” (Psalms‬ ‭19:14‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)

God’s Favor will overshadow any tricks and traps the enemy tries to formulate to cancel future blessings!

Don’t despair if you are in a Fix—because so is your Fight! God’s FAVOR IS UNSTOPPABLE!🙌🏼☝🏾🙏🏽❤️

“For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life; Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning.”(‭‭Psalms‬ ‭30:5‬)




Heavenly Father, As we celebrate this Holy Week in remembrance of your great sacrifice of love for us, let us not forget those who are still walking in the blindness and degradation of sin. Allow the purifying power of your Holy Spirit to penetrate the Hearts of those who are lost, so that they will receive the free gift of your salvation.

Father, Bring forth healing, restoration and wholeness to those who are sick, torn and broken—For when You come into a situation everything must change…bowing to Your sovereignty! You indeed are a healer, restorer and mender of broken hearts.

Lord God, You are still in the miracle-working business; therefore, We trust You, Oh God, to do those things men call impossible! Show us YOUR GREATER!

It’s in the mighty and matchless name above all names, JESUS, I pray…Amen.~M. Ford

“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John‬ ‭14:6‬)


“Mustard Seed Faith”

“Mustard Seed Faith”

Heavenly Father, We thank you for being an all-sufficient God! Help us to have confident, abiding Faith in Your power to produce in us and through us what seems impossible!

Help our desires to line up with Your Will—believing that if we have the Faith of a mustard seed, combined with Your Will, we can move proverbial mountains! Help us to daily depend upon You to accomplish every good work for which you created and equipped us to do.

You alone, Oh God, are more than enough! Help us to boldly walk in Your presence and power—daily exercising our mustard seed Faith and watching it sprout into bountiful blessings! In Jesus’ name I pray—Amen. ~M. Ford

“The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!” And the Lord said, “If you had faith like a grain of mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you.” (Luke‬ ‭17:5-6‬)
