LET US PRAY~Day 1

LET US PRAY~Day 1

Heavenly Father, as we commit to bowing before You in prayer each day as we fast and pray, give us the strength and grace needed to overcome trials, temptations and live holy for your glory. Help us to gain confidence in knowing that Your presence accompanies and sustains those who are of a contrite and humble spirit. Therefore, help us to walk in the spirit of humility, act justly and love mercy—recognizing that pride leads to destruction and humility breeds honor.

Father GOD, I pray for physical, spiritual and emotional health, healing and wholeness for your children who may be suffering and in distress, sick in their body, tormented in their mind, depressed in spirit or just simply need a breakthrough! I pray for deliverance from strongholds, perverse behavior, unholy habits. Demonic suppression, oppression and depression must go!

Father GOD, Anoint us for your service and give us a sincere desire to grow and mature spiritually—desiring to LIVE YOUR WORD over living like the world! Thank you, Father, for leading and guiding us in the way that is right and good. It’s in the sovereign, saving name of Jesus I pray…Amen.🙏🏽~M. Ford

“He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” (Micah 6:8)

“SEEKING GOD’S FACE”

SEEKING GOD’S FACE

Father GOD, I pray that Christians all around the world will seek the FACE of GOD versus the hand of God. I pray that as believers FAST and PRAY for spiritual revival in our homes, churches, land and world that GOD would increase our believing faith in His ability to intervene supernaturally and do the impossible in times of personal crisis and world chaos!

I pray that as we deny ourselves the fleshly appetites for food, entertainment and pleasures to SEEK YOUR FACE in prayer and fasting that You will pour out your spirit in ways unimaginable and those things that proved impossible for man will manifest into unexplainable possibilities through GOD!

Thank you, FATHER for hearing and answering this humble prayer. It’s in the powerful name of JESUS I pray and praise always! Amen🙏🏽~M. Ford

“SEEKING GOD’S PEACE”

SEEKING GOD’S PEACE

Father GOD, deliver your children from the anxiety and fears of this life that so easily ensnare us! For we realize that FEAR and FAITH can not occupy the same space, so help us to trust you with all our hearts and rest in your ability to provide whatever we need.

Allow your perfect PEACE that pass all understanding to guard our hearts and minds—leaning not to our own understanding, but in all our ways acknowledging that You are Sovereign!

Allow a healthy fear of the LORD to permeate the hearts and minds of your people; bringing us into the knowledge that the fear of man brings a snare, but whoever trusts in the LORD shall be saved. Thank you, Father, for the truth of your Word and the peace of your presence!

It’s in the name of Jesus, The Prince of Peace, I pray. Amen🙏🏽~M. Ford

“SEEKING TO KNOW & TRUST GOD”

SEEKING TO KNOW & TRUST GOD

Father GOD, I pray that your people, rich and poor alike, will SEEK to KNOW YOU in the beauty of Your holiness! For we understand that Your ways are not our ways; and your thoughts are not like our thoughts. Nevertheless, we believe and trust in your Word and that your loving kindness towards us will never fail, and Your judgment and righteousness will prevail!

Father GOD, I pray that the hearts of the people and those in authority will be turned back to the true and living GOD; and the scriptures would once again guide all decision making in our homes, churches, and government. I pray that the people and our national leaders would not put their trust in military strength, financial leverage, human strategy, or political power and influence to solve our problems and global difficulties; But rather we will put all our hope and trust in ELOHIM, who made the heavens and earth, commands the wind, feeds the birds and clothes the lilies of the field!

Thank you, FATHER, for sending your son, JESUS, to bridge the gap between sinful man and a holy GOD!

Thank you, FATHER, for loving us past our faults, forgiving our every sin, and graciously leading us back into your Will. It’s in the Name of JESUS I pray and praise always! Amen🙏🏽~M. Ford

#SEEK & SEE—Day3

“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)
