Dear Heavenly Father,
These are trying times, and the world around us is volatile. We hear constant rumors of war, and it causes us all to act in different ways. Some may feel fear, others anxiety or preparedness. Whatever the emotion may be, God I pray that you would bring us all back to center our focus on you. You are the only one we should fear, the only one that can give us salvation. Lord have mercy on us.
I pray that you would unite the body of Christ and remind us that we are all connected. Pull us away from infighting, what good does it do if the hand attacks the ear? The body is one, united. Let us each individually perform the tasks you created us for, in that act alone, we all will work together for good, bringing the gospel to others and showing others what the walk of Christianity is all about. Let the light and peace of the holy spirit flow freely through us, touching all that we come in contact with.
1 Corinthians 12:13: For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—Jews or Greeks, slaves or free—and all were made to drink of one Spirit.
These times call for vigilance, they call for sober-mindedness. Lord Jesus let us not get caught up in the hype of the news that could lead us to fear or paranoia. But instead use the news to carry us to a place of understanding of the times and preparedness for what is to come, always keeping our mind on you Lord.
In Jesus name we bind up the spirit of fear, paranoia, anxiety, depression, addiction, affliction, un-Godly stress, anger, hate, destruction, division, and we cast them back to the pit where they belong.
And above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfectness.
And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which ye are called in one body, and be ye thankful: Let the word of Christ dwell in you plenteously in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing your own selves, in Psalms, and hymns, and spiritual songs, singing with a grace in your hearts to the Lord
Philippians 4:6-7 Be nothing careful, but in all things let your requests be showed unto God in prayer and supplication with giving of thanks. And the peace of God which passeth all understanding, shall preserve your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
In Jesus name, we release the peace of God into our hearts. Let our hearts be pure and acceptable in your sight Lord. Let us not backslide in our ways but keep persevering, keep hoping and keep reaching out to you Jesus. Thank you, Jesus, for delivering us and setting us free!
In the mighty name of Jesus, Amen!
May you have a blessed Passover as we remember that the only deliverance we receive is through Jesus Christ. Through his blood, we were set free from the bondage of sin. God bless and carry on soldier!
