EVERYDAY IS THANKSGIVING

EVERYDAY IS THANKSGIVING

Abba Father…Our hearts are overflowing with gratefulness today! You have proven over and over again your sovereign faithfulness. We are so grateful that you allowed us to see a brand new dawning—even now, on this Thanksgiving Day!🦃🍽

Father GOD, I pray that you will set a guard around our hearts—allowing no darkness, depression or wickedness to enter. Allow only the light of your loving presence to embrace and rest upon each of us.

Release your perfect peace that surpasses all understanding to embrace the one whose heart may be heavy, hurting and seeking comfort and hope. Help us to see your sovereign hand at work in every circumstance—forever remembering that true Thankfulness is not about what’s in our “hands”, but what’s in our HEARTS❤️.

Thank you, Abba, for loving us beyond our faults and seeing the “worth” you’ve placed inside each of us. For this and so much more we give you THANKS!👏🏾🙌🏼☝🏾 It’s in the precious name of Jesus I pray. Amen 🙏🏽~M. Ford

“I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.” (Psalms 9:1)

I CHOOSE TO WORSHIP~RAISE YOUR PRAISE!”—Day 3

RAISE YOUR PRAISE!

“I CHOOSE TO WORSHIP~RAISE YOUR PRAISE!”—DAY 3

True worship ignites an uninhibited praise! This type of praise comes from deep within the bowels of the believer—not just from the lips.

This soul-breathed praise is an automatic and authentic response when we truly recognize whose presence we are in—The King of Kings and Lord of Lords!

It was this kind of angelic praise and worship experienced by Isaiah that rocked the heavenly house! Their praise was so profound that it was contagious—causing a ripple effect of uncontrollable shouts of JOY as they recognized and responded to GOD’s glory!🗣️🙌🏼🏃🏾‍♀️💨🙏🏽~M. Ford

“And one cried to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the LORD of hosts; the whole earth is full of His glory! And the posts of the door were shaken by the voice of him who cried out, and the house was filled with smoke.”(Isaiah 6:3-4)

I CHOOSE TO WORSHIP~BEYOND THE VEIL—Day 2

BEYOND THE VEIL

“I CHOOSE TO WORSHIP~BEYOND THE VEIL”—DAY 2

True Worship belongs to God alone. Elohim is the object of our worship. The main ingredient needed for authentic worship to take place is the presence of the Lord!

True worship takes us beyond the veil. The Prophet Isaiah was no longer distracted by, or concerned about, what was happening around him in the physical realm—he was caught up in the spiritual realm! Worshiping in the spirit takes you past the gates, through the courts, and into the very throne room and presence of God!

Like Isaiah, we must recognize God’s omnipotence, holiness, majesty and sovereignty—“For my eyes have seen the King, The LORD of Hosts.”☝🏾🙌🏼🙏🏽~M. Ford

“In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the temple. Above it stood seraphim; each one had six wings: with two he covered his face, with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. And one cried to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; The whole earth is full of His glory!” And the posts of the door were shaken by the voice of him who cried out, and the house was filled with smoke. Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “Whom shall I send, And who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.” (Isaiah 6:1-4, 8 NKJV)

I CHOOSE TO WORSHIP ~ Day 1

I CHOOSE TO WORSHIP

God is looking for True Worshippers. Those who will worship Him in Spirit and in Truth.

Preaching is for the people—to edify the saints and evangelize the sinners. But, Worship belongs to GOD alone!🙌🏼

True worship requires focusing your mind on GOD and surrendering your heart totally to the Lordship of JESUS CHRIST. Therefore, anything in your life that brings Glory and Honor to GOD is worshipping Him.

This transformed mindset and new heart-condition translates into a completely surrendered lifestyle—and that is when TRUE WORSHIP takes place.☝🏾🙏🏽~M. Ford

“But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.” (John 4:23 NKJV)

A PRAYER OF DELIVERANCE

Father GOD, we decree and declare deliverance for your people from all things that devastate, destroy and render us physically, mentally and spiritually ineffective for our Kingdom calling!

I pray for the healing/deliverance of your people from all addictive behaviors—smoking, alcohol, drugs, obesity, anorexia, pornography, foul language and all other perverse and unholy habits that plague, deteriorate and destroy these physical temples and prohibit a closer walk with you!

We decree and declare that our portion will be victory over every defeatist thought, wellness & wholeness of body and mind, and abundant life in Christ Jesus!

Hear our cry this day we Pray, Oh Lord, and heal our land! In the mighty and matchless name of Jesus! Amen🙏🏽~M. Ford

“Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.” (James‬ ‭5‬:‭16‬ ‭NKJV)

WASH ME!

WASH ME!

Heavenly Father, Thank you for your new mercies today! Thank you for another opportunity to live for you and to love one another. Thank you for your grace that you freely give, and for forgiving us of our sins, transgressions and iniquities.

Father, we ask that you wash us and cleanse us from all unrighteousness, so that we will be pleasing in your sight. Help us to effectively show and share the love of Christ as we go—discerning when to be as humble as a Lamb and when to be as fierce as a Lion in order to accomplish every good work for the building up of Your Kingdom here on earth.

Father, transform us through the RENEWING of our minds—help us to have godly thoughts, that will lead to godly actions, that will result in godly lifestyles! Help us to Line Up our desires with Your Will—Purge us from any and all things that do not look like YOU—and help us develop a sincere hunger, thirst and desire for MORE of YOU and YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS!

Create in us clean hearts and renew in us right spirits so that we may be used by you for GREATER works—all for your glory and honor! It’s in the mighty and matchless name of JESUS, I pray and praise always…Amen!🙏🏽~M. Ford

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

LIVING WATERS

LIVING WATERS

Heavenly Father, pour out your spirit like rivers of living water on your children, and give us favor as we seek your face. Fill our hearts with overflowing love for You, love for one another, and love for those we encounter. Create in us a clean heart and renew in us a right spirit.

Sovereign GOD, Give us the heart of a Lion so that we walk in Holy boldness—standing firm for things that are right in a world that has chosen to fall for things that are wrong. Give us the wisdom of Solomon so that we might have understanding and discernment in all things. Give us a spirit of praise and worship like David—recognizing WHO You are and responding to Your character, creation and faithfulness at all times and in all situations! Gift us with spiritual 20/20 vision like Elisha—living in the natural realm, but seeing things in the supernatural realm! Like Daniel in the lions den give us a quiet peace deep within that comes with the confidence in knowing that You, Oh Lord, are GREATER than anything and ABOVE all things!

Jehovah GOD, build us up in our most holy faith like Esther, far such a time as this, so that we won’t falter and fail when trials and troubles come our way, but rather we will mount up on wings like an eagle and soar into Victory!

Strengthen us, Oh LORD, as we prevail in fervent prayer—being ever-ready to give the TESTIMONY of the TEST that we’ve endured and overcome by The Blood🩸 of the Lamb and by the word of our testimony!☝🏾🙌🏼

It’s in the mighty and matchless Name of Jesus I pray and praise You alway, Amen🙏🏽~M. Ford

“He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” (John 7:38 NKJV)

DELAYED—NOT DENIED!

DELAYED—NOT DENIED!

Sometimes God will send a “headwind” in your Life to slow you down so that you don’t get to your appointed destination too soon—before patience has done its perfect work in You. Although your Vision may tarry, when you are “ready” and according to God’s perfect timing, He will send a strong “tailwind” that will get you to HIS intended destination for you—RIGHT ON TIME! ARE YOU READY?💨🙏🏽~M Ford

“For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.” (Habakkuk 2:3 ESV)
