THE SEEKERS

THE SEEKERS

Heavenly Father, As we come seeking your face on this day, we trust you to move your hand in our Favor. We realize that we have sinned and fallen short in so many ways—Forgive us of every sin, transgression and iniquity that has caused us to compromise our faith and walk against your perfect Will.

Father, search our hearts and cast out every wicked way, every evil thought and every dastardly deed even before it is done! Wash us with the precious blood of Christ and cleanse us from the inside out. Fill us with your precious Holy Spirit and set our souls on blazing fire with a fervent love and desire to please you, Oh God! Manifest in us a passionate desire for more of your presence and power to do the work of the ministry in order to build up Your kingdom here on earth—all for Your Glory!

Father, I pray for a “spirit of prayer” to spread like wildfire across our land and country—saturating our homes, government, schools and churches! Draw us closer to Your Heart until our desires are aligned with Yours! Raise up a remnant of sold-out Believers that are filled with The Holy Ghost, walking in their Calling and committed to doing Kingdom work!

Father, Ignite a Spirit of Prayer within the body of Believers until every church once again becomes A HOUSE OF PRAYER, saturated with spirit-led, prevailing prayer, resulting in a harvest of souls turning back to You, The True and Living GOD!

Thank you, Father, for Hearing and Answering this prayer! It’s in the strong and mighty name of Jesus I pray and praise you always…Amen🙏🏽~M. Ford

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.”‭‭(Matthew‬ ‭7:7-8‬)

REDEEMED

REDEEMED

Heavenly Father, Thank you for your unconditional love that look pass our faults and see our deepest needs. Cleanse us from all unrighteousness and create in us clean hearts so that we might be used by you for the building of your kingdom here in earth.

Father God, consecrate the hearts of Christians so that we will truly become Christ-addicted—Craving Your Word, seeking Your presence, and above all sincerely desiring daily to walk in Your Will day-by-day and not our own way.

Father God, Bless Your children with wisdom, knowledge, discernment and understanding of the times in which we live, recognizing that the days of our lives are filled with evil that can only be overcome by the power of your Love in action.

Give us a spirit of discernment so that we recognize the tricks and traps of the enemy from afar, and endow us with the ability to deflect every fiery dart of the devil with the pure unadulterated Word of God.

Father, help us to redeem our time while here on earth, living not as the unwise, but as the wise—walking in your will and not our own ways; recognizing and taking advantage of every opportunity to let other lights shine for Christ.

We are so grateful to be called by Your Name; help us to bring it honor a glory as we walk out our Faith each day. It’s in the mighty and matchless name of Jesus Christ I pray…Amen🙏🏽~M. Ford

“See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is.” (Ephesians‬ ‭5:15-17‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)

FAST & PRAY

PRAY & FAST

Heavenly Father, I pray that believers all around the globe are drawn to fast and pray during these crisis times for our families, churches, communities, nation and world; so that You, Oh God, will increase our believing faith in YOUR ability to intervene supernaturally and do the impossible in this time of world crisis!

I pray for our local, state and national leaders—that the hearts of those in authority will be turned back to You, Oh God, and the scriptures would once again guide all decision making.

I pray that people would lay aside their petty differences, personal agendas and divisive attributes and genuinely unite behind the desperate need for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit over our land!

Father, compel believers to return to SEEKING YOUR FACE in fervent, prevailing prayer, as you pour out your SPIRIT in response in ways unimaginable!

Deliver us from the fears that grip our nations and world and set us FREE in our spirits to sore above these difficult times—releasing our FAITH over Fear and SHINING bright in our darkest hours!

We love and trust you Father…have thine own way! You are the Potter and we are the clay. It’s in the precious name of Jesus I pray and praise you always…Amen 🙏🏽~M. Ford

DESTINY

DESTINY

Don’t let what you SEE make you forget what God has SAID.

For our knowledge is fragmentary and incomplete. The pages of your Life Story are still being written—God is the Author, so He has the last word, not man nor Satan.

Remember, Your Journey is just as Important as Your Destination, but the Beauty of the Journey is Knowing Who holds Your Destiny. ~Mary Ford❤️ 🙏🏽

“For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. But when that which is complete and perfect comes, that which is incomplete and partial will pass away.” (‭‭1 Corinthians 13:9-10‬)
