Child of God, No Matter What You Are Going Through—Be Encouraged! God Will Make It Alright, But You Got To Stay Strong, Watch, PRAY and STAY IN THE FIGHT! Your Breakthrough Is About To Bust Through! ~M. Ford
“Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong.” (1 Corinthians 16:13)
Heavenly Father, Help us to be more humble in our daily walk—realizing that it is You who give and You who take away; it is You who raise up in authority and it is You who will pull down in accordance with your good pleasure. Let us not function in self pride or vain glory in ourselves; but help us to glory in You, Oh Lord, who made the heavens and earth—the one who is able to destroy and save both body and soul!
For what have You required of us, Oh Lord, but to do good, love mercy, and walk humbly with You our God? We confess that we have sinned and fallen short in so many ways—Forgive us our sins, transgressions and iniquities, Oh Lord, wash us and we shall be cleaned; and purge us from all unrighteousness! Create in us a clean heart and renew in us a right spirit so that we might serve You in sincerity, passion and with power and purpose!
Thank you, Father, for the precious blood of JESUS that can wash away every stain of sin and restore us to a right relationship with you—Hallelujah!
Thank you, Abba, for such great a Love! It’s in the saving name of Jesus The Christ I pray and praise you always…Amen 🙏🏽
“So I turned to the Lord God and pleaded with him in prayer and petition, in fasting, and in sackcloth and ashes. I prayed to the Lord my God and confessed: “Lord, the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with those who love him and keep his commandments, we have sinned and done wrong. We have been wicked and have rebelled; we have turned away from your commands and laws. We have not listened to your servants the prophets, who spoke in your name to our kings, our princes and our ancestors, and to all the people of the land.” (Daniel 9:3-6 NIV)
Heavenly Father, Allow your Holy Spirit to rest upon your children today…filling us with Your love and peace. I pray the power of your presence humbles us into submission to your will in every situation and circumstance. I pray that your anointing will rest upon each of us—empowering and equiping us for even Greater works as we allow your love to bubble up and over onto everyone we encounter!
Father, Help us represent your kingdom well here on earth…not by our might, but by the power of your holy spirit that strengthens us from within! Lord, help us to Stay Positive and Keep the Faith in these difficult times. Not our will, Lord, but Your will be done in all things. It’s in the sovereign Savior’s name, JESUS, I pray and give thanks! Amen 🙏🏽
Sovereign God, Holy and Righteous is Your Name! We call upon You, Oh God, to bind up the broken hearted, to cast out the spirit of fear and confusion in our lives, and to loose your power, love, faith and hope within each of us so that we might live our lives holy and acceptable to You! No longer yielding to the ways of this world, succumbing to our lustful fleshly desires, or yielding to temptations and pride of life! Lord, please guard our hearts and our minds so that our speech, thoughts, actions and deeds line up with Your Word and Your perfect Will. Help us, Oh Lord, to choose to believe Your truth over Satan’s lies, so that we might Live Holy daily and bare good fruits in order to represent your Kingdom well here on earth. Thank You, Father, for your faithfulness! It’s In Jesus’ precious name I pray. Amen 🙏🏽
“Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost. Why spend money on what is not bread, and your labor on what does not satisfy? Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good, and you will delight in the richest of fare.” (Isaiah 55:1-2 NIV)
Understand this—there is a limit to the delays and sufferings in your life. Recall that even Satan’s power over Job was limited by God. The Father will allow your difficulties and delays to last only so long, but they will continue as long as is necessary for God to accomplish His purposes in you!
Remember—Worship While You Wait! Pray With Expectancy! Hide God’s Word In Your Heart! Be Strong In The Lord and of Good Courage because The Master is perfecting His Masterpiece! ~M. Ford
“The LORD will perfect that which concerns me; Your mercy, O LORD, endures forever; Do not forsake the works of Your hands.” (Psalms 138:8)
Heavenly Father…Thank You for being a good-good Father. For you have been our hope when we’ve felt hopeless, our help when we’ve felt helpless, and our strength when we’ve felt defeated by the enemy and unjust cruelty of this wicked world.
We look to You, Oh God, to hide us in the safety of your loving arms, to protect us from seen and unseen dangers, and to renew our strength day-by-day so that we might endure in tumultuous and uncertain times like these. Order our steps in your Word, Oh Lord! Lead us, guide us every day, and fill us with your anointing and power to accomplish every good work that you’ve called us to do!
Oh God, You are our instructor, teacher, counselor, strength and song! We praise you now and always for your grace that embrace us, your mercy that follows us, your faithfulness that never fails us, and your loving kindness towards us! Thank you for giving us the Victory in Jesus! Hallelujah and Amen!🙌🏼🙏🏽
“I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you” (Psalms 32:8).
Forgive us this day of our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Help us to earnestly seek after more of You—to study and meditate on Your Word daily, so that we may walk as obedient children, not conforming to the former lusts of our flesh, but living holy in all our conduct.
Help us to bring every thought of our minds captive and seek you with our whole hearts—hiding your Word deep in our hearts so that we don’t sin against you and wander away from your holy commandments.
Lead and guide those called by Your name each and every day, so that we may be kept pure and holy…not yielding so easily to sin, but STRENGTHENED by the WORD, ENCOURAGED through PRAYER and EMPOWERED by The HOLY SPIRIT!
Father God, Lord of Heaven, we invite You to not only be our Savior, but our LORD here on earth; transforming us into the image of Christ more and more each day as we eagerly work and humbly await His return! Hallelujah and Amen!
Heavenly Father, thank you for your LOVE that’s perfect and pure!❤️ We don’t deserve it—there is nothing we could ever do to earn it, and there is nothing we can ever do to lose it! Your Love Is EVERLASTING…Hallelujah!🙌🏼
Thank you for being a good-good Father who loves us beyond our faults and meets our every need—You alone are The Most High GOD—El Elyon! Hallelujah and Amen!🙏🏽
“But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him.” (I John 2:5)
God does not see things the way we see them. What appears to be beautiful on the outside could be a sepulcher on the inside. Looks can be deceiving—but not to God. Nothing escapes His holy vision!
Therefore, strive for the kind of BEAUTY that gets GOD’S attention—The kind that starts from the INSIDE and works its way out! ~M. FORD
“But the Lord said to Samuel, “Don’t judge by his appearance or height, for I have rejected him. The Lord doesn’t see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” (1 Samuel 16:7)
