“AWESOME GOD”

Father, you indeed are awesome!

Thank you, for being so very good to us! Your mercy never runs out—it’s new every morning! Your grace is undeserved—yet you give it freely! Your love has no boundaries—you love us beyond our faults and shower us with Favor!

Father, our hearts are so glad to be chosen and called out of the darkness of this world into the marvelous light of your saving grace!

We stand in awe of what you have done thus far and we stand on tiptoes of expectation as to what you will do as we release believing faith in you!

Consecrate our hearts so that we are sensitive to your will. Regulate our minds so that we think on you more each day! And when we get weak, oh Lord, Strengthen us for this journey!

Rather with many or a remnant few, use us to accomplish even greater works for the kingdom! Have your way Lord! We love, praise, worship and adore you always….In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen🙏🏽~M. Ford

Oh Lord, Our God…How excellent is your name! In all the earth there is none like you! You reign supreme and your ways are right and good!

“ONE LOVE—IMMANUEL”

ONE LOVE—IMMANUEL

Heavenly Father, Our hearts are heavy because of so much sin and tragedy in our cities, states, nation and world!

We pray for the hearts of the lost/unsaved and unchurched to be changed and come into the saving grace of Jesus Christ—open their eyes, ears and hearts to the truth of Christ and God’s Word.

We pray that they will have Your attitude towards sin and be released to believe. We Pray that those who are saved will truly desire a transformed life in Christ, and live a lifestyle that brings Him glory and honor in all they do!

We pray that your children will have a desire to go into the harvest field to share Christ, serve others, and make disciples just as you have instructed.

Father, pour out your spirit upon all hearts searching and seeking hard after You! Anoint and Appoint pastors, preachers, teachers, prophets, and evangelists that are truly sold-out for Christ and will represent the Kingdom in spirit and in truth!

Raise up spirit-filled and spirit-led Prayer Warriors, both young and old—who are called, anointed and appointed for such a time as this! Strengthen and equip us to rise up with holy boldness as we combat the enemy, reclaiming our homes, children, marriages, churches, communities, nation and world for Christ!

Hear our hearts cry, Oh Lord! In the mighty and matchless name of Jesus The Christ I pray and praise you always…Amen.🙏🏽

“If My People…”

“If My People…”

Heavenly Father, I come praying for Your protection, direction and covering over your people today…those who are called by your name. Give each of us an extra portion of grace and mercy as we enter a new day and a new week, not knowing what we may encounter, but trusting and believing You to bring us through victoriously!

Touch those who are hurting, sick, disenfranchised, lonely and lost with your finger of healing, renewal, love, restoration and deliverance..In Jesus’ Name.

Cleanse us from all unrighteousness and anything that will dishonor you—as your children we want to be well pleasing in your eyes.

Teach us to be humble in spirit, and help us to seek Your Will above our own. Father, use us for Your glory and honor as we surrender complete control of our lives to You—the author and finisher of our faith. Help us to truly be light and salt in this dark and unsavory world!

Father, we desire to do greater works in your name—Purge, renew and strengthen us each day for the work of the ministry as we walk boldly in the calling you have upon our lives!

It’s in the mighty and matchless name of JESUS we trust, believe and have hope! Amen 🙏🏽~M. Ford

“I NEED THEE”

I NEED THEE

Heavenly Father, Your children are in dire need of your strength, confidence, comfort, power and peace today.

Many are facing trials, troubles, tasks and tests that seem too much to bare and impossible to overcome. Nevertheless Father, help us to realize that things are not always what they seem to be in the natural because of what is taking place in the spiritual.

Help us to stand firm on our Faith, knowing without a shadow of doubt that with YOU being for us, in us, and with us is more than the world against us!

Help us realize that you are our source of courage, and there is an invincible army of angels that will fight our every battle!

For You have promised that in times of uncertainty, unrest and raging seas of life, to make us steady and sure—able to stand firmly and tread safely on rough paths of testing and times of trouble!

Father, Help us to look past our problems and our pain and remember your Promises—standing firmly on your Word at all times—Decreeing and Declaring WE SHALL NOT BE MOVED!

Help us, Oh Lord, to worship You in spirit and truth…ALL FOR YOUR GLORY & HONOR! Thank you for your Faithfulness and your Favor, Father!

It’s in the mighty and matchless name of JESUS, who is The Christ, I pray and praise always…AMEN.🙌🏼☝🏾🙏🏽~M. Ford

“STRENGTH To Live Holy”

STRENGTH To Live Holy

Heavenly Father, I come praying today for Your children…those who are called by Your name. Help us to long for an intimate relationship with You—no longer desiring milk, but the meat of Your word to guide our lives, especially in times like these. 

Father, consecrate our hearts so that we grieve over the sins of mankind and over our own personal sins, then confess and repent—turning away from those things that break Your heart and turning to Your Word and Prayer for the STRENGTH we need to truly Live Holy day-by-day. 

Father, I Pray for spiritual freshness to fall upon each of us individually and collectively as one global body of believers to effectively serve in building up your kingdom here on earth. Help us to use our spiritual gifts and talents for ministry, mission and witnessing to the unchurched and unsaved in our homes, communities and beyond.

Father, I Pray for spirit-fed, spirit-lead and anointed pastors, teachers, preachers, leaders, prayer warriors and all true Christ followers to rise up and with holy boldness proclaim that YOU ALONE are THE TRUE AND LIVING CHRIST! Endow us compassion and courage to be witnesses of Your sovereignty, omnipotence, faithfulness, forgiveness, righteousness, mercy, grace and Love!

Father, I Pray for SPIRITUAL REVIVAL to sweep across this Land like a mighty rushing wind—turning the stony unrepentant hearts of the people back into submitted, surrendered hearts of flesh that truly seek to serve and live for You above all else!

Hear my humble prayer on this new day of this new week! It’s In the strong and mighty Name of JESUS I pray and praise forever…Amen.🙏🏽~M. Ford

THE BIRTHDAY PARTY FOR JESUS Continues!🎁

🎁GIFT #3: Give Him your Service—Use your spiritual gifts for His glory and honor!

“For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function, so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another. Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, let us prophesy in proportion to our faith; or ministry, let us use it in our ministering; he who teaches, in teaching; he who exhorts, in exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness.” (Romans‬ ‭12:4-8‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)

“When I call to remembrance the genuine faith that is in you, which dwelt first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice, and I am persuaded is in you also. Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands. For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” (II Timothy‬ ‭1:5-7‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)
