WALK BY FAITH

WALK BY FAITH

Heavenly Father, I pray Your protection, direction and covering over us today. Give each of us an extra portion of grace and mercy as we enter a new day, not knowing what we may encounter, but trusting You every step of the way to bring us through victoriously!

Father, touch those who are hurting, sick, lonely or lost with your finger of healing, renewal, love and RESTORATION in Jesus’ mighty name!  For we know the enemy and his Imps are on the Rampage in this world; Nevertheless, YOU ARE STILL WORKING…even In chaotic times such as these! 

Lord, we desire to do greater works in your name, so Help us be the light and salt in this dark and unsavory world! Help us to seek Your Will above our own as we surrender complete control in every area of our lives to You—the author and finisher of our faith. 

Purge, renew and strengthen us each day for the work of the ministry and help us walk boldly in the CALLING you have upon each of our lives as we humbly submit to YOU daily. THANK YOU for choosing us and using us for Your glory! It’s in Jesus’ mighty and matchless name we trust and have hope! Amen 🙏🏽 ~M. Ford

“He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?” ‭‭(Micah‬ ‭6:8‬ ‭ESV‬‬)

“FOR YOUR GLORY”

FOR YOUR GLORY!

Heavenly Father, We give You all glory and honor this day! As we prepare to move out into the unknown, Empower each of us through the Holy Spirit and Endow us with wisdom, knowledge, discernment and understanding so that we might prosper in every good work for Your glory!

Deliver your children from every fear that will hinder us from walking in our purpose with passion! Help us not yield to temptations that cause us to become so easily distracted and ensnared by the enemy’s tricks and traps.

Let us stand steadfast with holy boldness; knowing that You, Our God, have not given us a spirit of fear, but of Love, Power and a sound Mind! Give us a healthy fear of You that permeates our hearts and minds—bringing us into the knowledge of Your holiness, righteousness, omnipotence and sovereignty!

Help us to live out our purpose daily—being the salt and light in a dark and unsavory world! Our hearts desire is to DRIP JESUS everywhere we go—allowing the love of Christ to overflow on all we meet.

It’s in the MIGHTY AND MATCHLESS NAME OF JESUS I pray and praise You always…Hallelujah and Amen 🙏🏽 ~M. Ford

A LIVING TESTIMONY

A LIVING TESTIMONY

Do you have a Testimony?

When you give testimony in a court of law, hearsay is not admissible. You cannot testify to what someone else has seen, heard, felt or experienced. Only what you know to be true through personal knowledge, sight or involvement is considered to be credible testimony as a witness.

So, I ask again—do you have a Testimony? 

Not the kind you give in a court room on a witness stand, but the kind that’s been engraved on your heart by the personal encounters you’ve had with the Master.

Life will surely bring about bumps, bruises and scars. But, these are just Testimonies in The Making—evidence that you have endured The Test. Your life doesn’t have to look all perfectly gift-wrapped and nice—Just be a credible witness for Christ!

Stand your ground. Stay Positive. Keep the Faith. We are called OUT and SET APART to be a Living Testimony—Not trying to persuade, prod or pressure anyone into our point of view, but simply telling the FACTS of what we KNOW our GOD can do! Being a living Testament to our God’s grace as we run this Christian race—March on Christian Soldier!🙏🏽~M. Ford

“And they overcame and conquered him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, for they did not love their life and renounce their faith even when faced with death.” (Revelation‬ ‭12:11‬ ‭AMP‬‬)

“TAKE COURAGE”

“TAKE COURAGE”

The Father will allow your difficulties and delays to last only a season. There is a limit to the delays and sufferings in your life.

Remember, Satan’s power over Job was even limited by God; and the story of Hannah’s heartache can attest that delays are not denials as she dedicated her long awaited for son (Samuel) back to the Lord.

The lesson to be learned here is this—God will use even the difficulties and delays in your life to complete His perfect work “IN” you in order to accomplish His purpose and perfect Will “THROUGH” you.

Don’t let the Subtlety of the enemy deceive you, nor the Devil’s relentless assaults turn you around—Your appointed time of BREAKTHROUGH is at hand—You STAND!☝🏾🙏🏽~M. Ford

“And the Lord answered me: “Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it. 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 ‭2:2-3‬)

TRUTH SEEKERS

TRUTH SEEKERS

Father God, help us to boldly come to the throne of grace with all of our prayer petitions and intercession on behalf of the saints and the unsaved.

Anoint us with power and authority to be ambassadors for Christ and agents of change in a world that has become saturated with sin. For we live in a time when people have truly become lovers of themselves more than lovers of God.

Raise up a remnant of true believers, sold-out Saints, battle-ready Prayer Warriors and holy-bold teachers, preachers and Pastors that will not bend nor bow to the false teachings of this world, nor yield to the lusts of the flesh, nor give way to the pride of life. Empower, equip, anoint and appoint godly men and women all around the world to do the work of the ministry to which they have been called out, picked and positioned to do. As You lead us we will follow!

Thank you, Lord, for preparing the way! This day, we decree and declare VICTORY IN JESUS! Hallelujah and Amen!🙏🏽
