Paul’s Four Prayers

Abba, Father of our Lord Jesus, I thank You for all my family and friends, and I ask that You give us each the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Jesus: that the eyes of our understanding would be enlightened; that we may know the hope of His calling, the riches of the glory of His inheritance in us, the exceeding greatness of His power to us who believe, according to the working of Your mighty power, which You wrought in Christ, when You raised Him from the dead, and set Him at Your own right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: And hath put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be the head over all things to the church.i

And this I pray, that our love may abound more and more in knowledge and in all judgment; that we may approve things that are excellent; that we may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ; that we may be filled with the fruits of righteousness, by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God. ii

For this cause we also ask, Abba, that we might be filled with the knowledge of Your will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding, that we might walk worthy of You, being pleasing in Your sight, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of You, that we might be strengthened with all might, according to Your glorious power, to all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness, giving thanks to You, Who have made us partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of Your dear Son, through Whose blood we have redemption and forgiveness of sins.iii

Abba, I ask that You grant us, according to the riches of Your glory, to be strengthened with might by Your Holy Spirit in our inner man; that Christ may dwell in our hearts by faith, and that we, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to aspire with all saints toward the breadth, and length, and depth, and height of the love of Christ, which is beyond knowledge, that we might be filled with Your Spirit. Now all praise be to You, Abba, Who is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, unto You be all glory in the church through Christ Jesus in this time, and in all eternity.iv

i Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers; That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, (Eph 1:16-22)

ii And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment; That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ; Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God. (Php 1:9-11)

iii For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness; Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: (Col 1:9-14)

iv That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen. (Eph 3:16-21)

Prayer for Time, Organization and Prosperity

(TOP of the Morning Prayer)

Yahweh, You appear to me, visit me, and see what is done to me.1 You speak to me face to face, as a friend.2 I love You, obey Your voice, and cleave to You, for You are my Life and the length of my days. I dwell in the land while wisdom, understanding, peace, riches and honour are added to me.3 You order my steps and delight in my way.4 Abba, just as a child imitates his father, I imitate You, declaring Truth from Your Word, knowing that Your Word will not return void, but will be made manifest, and accomplish that which You please.5 Abba, thank You for filling me with Your Spirit in all wisdom, understanding, knowledge, and workmanship.6 You have made an everlasting covenant with me, ordered in all things and I set my house in order, doing all things decently and in order.7 I order my cause and know I shall be justified.8 I pray, Abba, that You would clothe every member of my family, my friends and my loved ones, with Your whole armour.9 I thank You, Abba, that no weapon formed against us shall prosper, and every tongue that rises against us in judgment we condemn, knowing that this is the heritage of the servants of Yahweh, and You have proclaimed that our righteousness is of You!10 I pray confusion upon the enemy and all his communications.11 I thank You that we have perfect peace because our minds are stayed on You and we trust in You.12 I thank You that all things work together for our good, because we love You and are called according to Your purpose.13 Thank You, Abba, that even our enemies make friends with us when we please You!14 Thank You, Abba, that You cause our enemies that rise up against us to be smitten before our faces: that they come out against us one way, and flee before us seven ways.15 Thank You, Abba, that as we submit ourselves to You, we resist the devil, and he flees from us!16 Thank You, Yahweh, that Your blessing is on us, because we fear You.17 We pray for the peace of Jerusalem and we prosper because we love her.18 We bless the children of Abraham and are blessed in return.19 We have cast the beam out of our own eyes and we see clearly.20

I thank You, Abba, the God of Israel, that You are blessing us indeed and enlarging our boundaries, that Your hand is with us, keeping us from evil.21 Thank You, Abba, that You make us plenteous in every work of our hands, in the fruit of our bodies, in the fruit of our livestock, in the fruit of our land, for good, and that You rejoice over us, as You rejoiced over our fathers.22 Thank You, Abba, that You give that which is good to us and our lands yield their increase. 23 Thank You, Abba, that You cause us to bring up our children in the nuture and admonition of You, to lodge strangers, to wash the feet of the saints, to relieve the afflicted, and to diligently follow every good work.24 In accord with Your Word, Abba, we love our enemies, and we bless those that curse us, we do good to them that hate us, and pray for those who despitefully use us and persecute us.25

I declare the decree26, in the name of Yahshua27, that You, Abba, perfect that which concerns us28, that You pour the water of Your Word upon us because we are thirsty for You, that You pour floods upon the dry ground, that You pour Your spirit upon our seed, and Your blessing upon our offspring29, that they spring up as among the grass, as willows by the water courses30, that we don’t fear for You are with us, that You gather our seed to You from the north, south, east and west, and call them Your own, that we are called by Your name and You have formed, made and created us for Your glory31; that You take away even the captives of the mighty and deliver the prey of the terrible for You contend with him that contends with us, and You save our children32, that You punish the wicked but deliver the seed of the righteous33, that You teach our children and great is the peace of our children34, that You pour out of Your Spirit upon all flesh: that our sons and our daughters prophesy, our young men see visions, and our old men dream dreams35. HalleluYah!

Thank You, Abba, that You have made us labourers together with You, that we are Your Husbandry and Your building.36 Abba, I pray that You would send others to labour with us in Your great harvest, sowing and reaping, that we might gather fruit unto life eternal and rejoice together.37 Abba, please help us to be faithful disciples of Yahshua, glorifying You and bearing much fruit, abiding as branches in Yahshua, our vine, and having Him abide in us.38 Thank You that You make our yoke easy and our burden light, that Your presence goes with us giving us rest and peace while You fight for us.39 Yahweh, Maker of heaven and earth, thank You for keeping us continually from all evil as we come and go, from this time forth and for evermore.40 HalleluYah!

Oh, Abba, please have mercy on your people in Texas and North America and the World, for we Your chosen ask to stand in the breach for them, as Moses Your chosen stood before You in the breach, to turn away Your wrath, that You did not destroy the children of Israel. 41

Oh, Yahweh, Hallowed be Thy Name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. Please give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses and help us to forgive those who trespass against us. Please lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, for Thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory.42 HalleluYah!

In the Name of Yahshua, I forgive everyone who has sinned against me. 43 In the Name of Yahshua,44 I destroy all the works and designs of the devil45 in my life, the lives of my family and the lives of my friends, all the way down to the pit of hell.46 In the Name of Yahshua, I release the captives47 and shine light upon those in darkness and establish us in heavenly places in Yahshua.48

I pray for Your persecuted people throughout the world, that those witnessing the suffering see that Yahshua is real, I pray that food be multiplied and taste good, I pray that clothing be supplemented and provide warmth, I pray that beatings and torture not weaken but strengthen faith, I pray that the enemy not overcome, but that captors have mercy, be convicted of sin, and come to salvation. I pray that Your people and their families not despair nor be discouraged nor ashamed, but that the prisons are centers of revival, that gospel meetings are invisible to the enemy but that Your people, and those who will come to You, are drawn to the meetings. I pray that You send Your Sweet Holy Spirit to comfort and strengthen Your people, and that You send angels to minister to needs. I pray that You multiply the availability of Your Word in all those places in the world where it is scarce and that Your people treasure it and learn to use it as the Sword against the enemy. I pray that we all appropriate the Victory that Yahshua won and turn our towns, cities, counties, states, regions and countries to You!49

Prayer for Redemption, Restoration and Rejuvenation of Texas

 Prayers  Comments Off on Prayer for Redemption, Restoration and Rejuvenation of Texas
Feb 152015
 

We plead the Blood of Yahshua over all the land of Texas – the Blood of Yahshua that purchased remission of sins. It is written that there is no remission of sin without the shedding of blood,1 but the Blood of Yahshua was shed for the remission of sin.2 It is also written that whatsoever sins we retain, they are retained, and whatever sins we remit, they are remitted.3 Now therefore, we remit any and all sins committed in Texas. We plead the Blood of Yahshua over those sins and they are remitted, therefore we decree and declare Redemption over all of the land, creatures, soil, and plants in Texas. We decree and declare Restoration back to the original DNA of creation for all the land, creatures, soil and plants in Texas. We decree and declare that the mutations, corruptions, and perversions of this DNA is annulled. We decree and declare Rejuvenation over all the land of Texas: the bringing forth of new life, new perfect life in accord with original creation DNA. We decree and declare Rejuvenation of the land back to original creation blessedness in the name of Yahshua.4 I have power of attorney to speak in the name of Yahshua5 and I decree and declare in the name of Yahshua that it be done! HalleluYah!

 

Notes:

1 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission. (Hebrews 9:22 KJV)

 

2 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. (John 1:29 KJV)

 

3 And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost: Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained.(John 20:22-23 KJV)

 

4 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:9-11 KJV)

 

5 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. (John 14:12-14 KJV)

I set my face unto You, oh Lord God, to seek by prayer and supplications, with fastings.  Oh Lord, the great and dreadful God, keeping the covenant and mercy to them that love You, and to them that keep Your commandments, we have sinned, and we have committed iniquity, and we have done wickedly, and we have rebelled, even by departing from Your precepts and Your judgments.  We have not listened to Your servants, which have spoken in Your name to our government officials and to all of us.  Oh Lord, righteousness belongs to You, but we are embarrassed before You because of our trespasses that we have trespassed against You, Oh Lord.   We are shamed before You, Oh Lord, because we have sinned against You.  Oh Lord our God, to You belong mercies and forgivenesses, though we have rebelled against You and not obeyed Your voice, to walk in Your ways, which You set before us by Your servants the prophets.  Yes, Lord, we have all transgressed Your law, by not obeying Your voice; therefore the curse is poured upon us, because we have sinned against You.   You have confirmed Your Word by bringing upon us all this evil,  yet we have not made our prayer before You, our LORD and our God, that we might turn from our iniquities, and understand Your Truth.  You are righteous, oh LORD our God in all Your works which You do,  for we have not obeyed Your voice.  And now, O Lord our God, that brought our fathers into this good land with many mighty miracles, formerly published abroad, we confess that we have sinned, and we have done wickedly.  Oh Lord, according to all Your righteousness, I beseech You, let Your anger and Your fury be turned away from our people, our towns, cities, counties, states and nations.  Now therefore, Oh Lord our God, hear our prayers, and our supplications, and cause Your face to shine again upon our land, now dry and desolate.  Oh my God, incline Your ear, and hear; open Your eyes, and see our desolations, and the land You once blessed.  We do not present our supplications before You because we are righteous, but because Your mercy is great.  Oh Lord, hear our prayers!  Oh Lord, forgive us!  Oh Lord, please help us to turn from our wicked ways and seek Your face that You may have mercy on us and heal our land!  Please make us a lighthouse to the world again!”

(This prayer is taken from Daniel chapter 9.)
