Prayer for Overcoming the Enemy’s Schemes

Father,

You reign and are robed in majesty! You are Mighty and armed with strength. (Psalm 93:1) This is the very strength Your child needs to battle the enemy of their souls. (1 Peter 5:8)  Father, Your child’s thoughts trouble them and they are distraught at the voice of the enemy in their ears. (Psalm 55:1-3) He will not give up. I plead the Blood of the Lamb to drown out his accusing voice and for Your child to hear Your holy voice of Truth. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. (John 10:27) Day and night the enemy is accusing Your children in Your very presence. (Revelation 12:10) Remind Your child the Blood of the Lamb deafens Your ears to his accusations! Let the morning bring word Your child’s voice is the only voice You hear. Because he inclined his ear to me, therefore I will call on him as long as I live. (Psalm 116:2) Your child’s cries, pleas, and petitions bend Your ear. AMEN!

Let this morning bring word of Your loyalty and unfailing love to Your child during such adversity. (Psalm 143) Let the morning bring Your strength to Your child’s heart as many tailor-made arrows have pieced and wounded them.  (Ephesians 6:16) The enemy has done quite a work on Your children’s mind and emotions. Tricks, schemes, and traps have been set. (2 Corinthians 2:11)  This infuriates you. The LORD is a jealous and avenging God; the LORD is avenging and wrathful; the LORD takes vengeance on his adversaries and keeps wrath for his enemies. (Naham 1:2) Your child needs to put their complete trust in YOU to deliver and avenge them. Mighty God, free Your children from the trap that is set for them; for You are their refuge from this terror. You will not hand them over to the enemy, but instead You promised to set their feet in a spacious place. A place safe. (Psalm 31:4 and 8) AMEN!

Father God, the enemy has stolen health, provision, security, and vital relationships from many of Your children but You are restoring with life abundance. (John 10:10) Their weakness of heart and lack of strength has them “under the covers” most days. Rescue them this day from the enemy of their confidence! (Psalm 27:5) Hide them in Your safe place. You can lead Your child to level, safe, and abundant ground. For YOUR Name’s sake preserve their sanity, lives, and purpose. Again, bring them out of trouble and into Your unfailing love. (Psalm 143: 8-12) For NO weapon formed against Your child will prosper and every lie spoken against them will be refuted in Your courts. (Isaiah 54:17) Rescue Your child from the mire, do not let them sink to the level Satan has planned for them. (Psalm 40:2) Deliver Your child from the enemy’s past, current, and future plans against them. Do not let the floodgates engulf them or the depths swallow them up. You will rescue them with Your goodness and love. You will not hide Your face, instead You will rescue them quickly. (Psalm 69: 13-17) AMEN!

Let Your faithfulness be their shield and may Your child not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day. (Psalm 91:4-5) Thank You for commanding Your angels concerning them and their families. (Psalm 91:11) Father, we know their struggle is NOT with flesh and blood but with against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. (Ephesians 6:12) Teach us how crucial the full armor of God is for protecting our hearts and minds. (Ephesians 6:10-18) Teach us LORD JESUS! We do not want to be ignorant of Satan’s schemes. So that we would not be outwitted by Satan; for we are not ignorant of his designs. (2 Corinthians 2:11)

Father, In the Name of Jesus, I ask You to allow Your child to see with their eyes the defeat of the adversary in their lives. Let their ears hear the stories of how the wicked one was brought to justice for taunting Your child. (Psaml 92:11) Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the LORD our GOD! Their trust in You will bring the enemy to his knees. (Psalm 20:7-8) Father, teach Your child to obey You in all things so disobedience will not delay their victory over the enemy! (Psalm 81:13-14).Restore back seven fold what has been stolen from Your child; as promised.  Yet if he is caught, he must pay sevenfold, though it costs him all the wealth of his house. (Proverbs 6:31) AMEN!

May You God ARISE and may Your child’s enemies be scattered; may their foes flee before them. (Psalm 68:1) Arise and come to Your child’s aid. (Psalm 35:1-3) Let them be not put to shame LORD; for they have cried out to You. (Psalm 31:14-17) Praise be to You the Lord who trains hands for war, our fingers for battle. You are our loving God and our fortress, our stronghold and deliverer, our shield in who we take refuge. Part the Heavens! Reach down from on high; deliver and rescue Your children from then enemy and his ridiculous schemes! (Psalm 144) May it be so!

In the Mighty Name of Jesus we have prayed!

Power of Praying the Three Stranded Prayer Family,

Hope this finds You seeking God as You never have before! It has been SUCH an honor to pray the past 22 days. I asked God for direction for today and was lead to a really powerful verse: Psalm 142:2. I read the verse several times and in different translations, finding the focal word to be  ”complaints.”  I spill out all my complaints before him, and spell out my troubles in detail. (Psalm 142:2) The verse took some time to really sink in and even more time to sense where God was wanting to go. I know for a fact, as a “recovered complainer,” God does NOT delight in our complaining.  “Then all the congregation lifted up their voices and cried, and the people wept that night. All the sons of Israel grumbled against Moses and Aaron; and the whole congregation said to them, “Would that we had died in the land of Egypt! Or would that we had died in this wilderness! ”Why is the LORD bringing us into this land, to fall by the sword? Our wives and our little ones will become plunder; would it not be better for us to return to Egypt?” (Numbers 14:1-3) YIKES! However, God wants you to “cry out” to Him.

This is a very powerful step to your healing.

Here is what God is teaching you today. The Hebraic word used in this text for “complaint” is this: ponder, converse, complain, mediate, speak, talk and pray. What? God wants us to “pray” our “complaints and troubles” to Him?  Well then, if He said it, we need to obey. God wants you to “spill out” your complaint. He wants your troubles “out of you.” Your complaints and troubles need to be poured out of your heart like water. Pour it out; let it spill! Once your heart has been emptied of its complaints You are ready for the miraculous…. seeing God. “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.” (Matthew 5:8) You and the Father need a set apart time to pour out your complaints and troubles to Him. Today is the day! Take time on the blog to do this or you can make this private between you and your God. Just let me know you are doing this by “AMEN.”

Today is the day to pour your heart out to God in prayer.

Friend, once the complaints and troubles are spilled out, replace them with praise!

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord! (Psalm 150:6)

In the Mighty Name of Jesus we have prayed!
Amen and Amen,
I love YOU,
Sheila

Prayer for Healing

Father,

You are Jehovah Rapha. I am the LORD, your healer. (Exodus 15:26) The Hebrew word rophe means: to make whole by healing, curing, or restoring. Hallelujah and AMEN! Your children long for wholeness and healing in their heart, soul, and body. Heartbreak, bitterness, and disease all effect the well being of Your child. This concerns You greatly. (Psalm 55:22) The pain they have endured for YEARS spiritually, emotionally and physically has been crippling to their hearts, minds, and body. Emotional sickness can lead to physical sickness; therefore, heal Your child from the inside out in the Mighty Name of Jesus. For I will restore health to you, and your wounds I will heal, declares the Lord. (Jeremiah 30:17)

Father, reveal to Your child any wisdom they may need to get to the “root” cause of their emotional or physical need, if You need to do so. We welcome Your revealing hidden things. (1 Corinthians 2:10) We do not want to be deceived in our hearts. We want to be humble before You. (1 Peter 5:6) If there is any need for repentance; please have this crucial moment with Your child today. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases. (Psalm 103:2-3) Is there an unhealthy habit? Is there unforgiveness in their hearts? Is there sin in the camp? May You and Your child deal together with this by the end of the day. Why? Because I am asking for a complete healing for them; mind, body, soul, and spirit, in the Name of Jesus. And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. (James 5:15) AMEN!

There may be no sin at all; only that YOU want to display Your mighty works! AMEN AND AMEN! Jesus answered, “It was not that this man sinned, or his parents, but that the works of God might be displayed in him. (John 9:3)  Or, You want a greater intimacy with Your child. I had heard of you by the hearing of the ear, but now my eye sees you. (Job 42:5) Your timing will be perfect. (Isaiah 30:18) Father, let us not be tricked one more day, by our adversary, out of our miracle. Direct our steps to our healing and we will follow You, the Great Physician. (Mark 2:17) Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved, for you are my praise. (Jeremiah 17:14) AMEN!

Jehovah Rapha, I pray You heal my friend healthy and whole as You promised. Cure their diseases. Heal their heart. Restore back their life to them. I ask this with full assurance of Your answering, because Jesus took on Himself Your child’s infirmities. This curse has been reversed by the Blood of the Lamb. Jesus has He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed. (1 Peter 2:24 and Isaiah 53:3) AMEN!

I am petitioning You for Your child’s wholeness for Your Kingdom’s sake. Your child cannot do Your Kingdom work broke, tired, sick, emotionally unstable or with their mind un-renewed. Your child needs to be whole; mind, body, soul and spirit to serve Your purposes and fight spiritual battles! Behold, I will bring to it health and healing, and I will heal them and reveal to them abundance of prosperity and security. (Jeremiah 33:6) Heal Your child to be a vessel of honor for You. (2 Timothy 2:21)

Father, if Your child needs healing from a broken heart. I ask You this day…today, to wipe their tears away.. on earth not just in heaven!  “He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” (Revelation 21:4) No one can write a better ending to a heart breaking story than YOU! I have heard your prayer and seen your tears; I will heal you. (2 Kings 20:5) Re-write their story so they know the pen of Heaven wrote it and sealed it with love.

 If your heart is broken, you’ll find God right there; if you’re kicked in the gut, he’ll help you catch your breath.

(Psalm 34:18 MSG)

By HIS stripes my we are healed. AMEN! (Isaiah 53:5)

May we be just like the one leper who turned back to THANK YOU!

“That evening they brought to him many who were oppressed by demons, and he cast out the spirits with a word and healed all who were sick.  This was to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah: “He took our illnesses and bore our diseases.” (Matthew 8:16-17)

In the Mighty Name of Jesus we have prayed!
Amen and Amen,
I love YOU,
Sheila

Prayer for Revealing your Destiny

Father,

You have hand chosen Your child for a destiny beyond their wildest dreams. “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.” (Jeremiah 1:15) You have given different gifts to each of Your children for Your Kingdom’s sake. (1 Corinthians 12:28) Your child’s fingerprint is one of a kind. (Psalm 139:13-16) Their personal and perfectly designed self, their life experiences, and spiritual gifts make them unique for their contribution to the Body of Christ, for such a time as this. (Esther 4:14) AMEN!

Satan will try to steal this powerful destiny from them but Your plans cannot be thwarted.  I know that you can do all things, and that no purpose of yours can be thwarted. (Job 42:2) How will he try to steal this? He might lie about them, deceive them out of believing Your promises, destroy their confidence, or convince them to give up. His tricks are endless. (John 8:44 and 1 Peter 5:8) Father, I ask in the Name of Jesus, a hedge of protection be around Your child as they seek You for the wisdom to do this mighty work. (Job 1:10 and Psalm 91) AMEN!

Father, reveal the dream You want Your child to dream with You. Speak directly to their heart. When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. (John 16:13) Your child has the honor of being called to help change this world in preparation for Jesus’ return as the King of Kings. What a high calling!  But, as it is written, “What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him.” (1 Corinthians 2:9) You need Your child’s full attention! You need their hands to be put to the plow. And he said to them, The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest. (Luke 10:2) You need them to be about Your business. (Luke 2:49) AMEN!

Thank You Father for being behind Your child in this venture with You. The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me; your steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever. (Psalm 138:8) I pray Your child would be committed to set themselves apart for You and Your purposes. Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established. (Proverbs 16:3 and Joshua 3:5) What you have promised will come to pass for Your Names sake. You promise on Your promises. Blessed be the Lord who has given rest to his people Israel, according to all that he promised. Not one word has failed of all his good promise, which he spoke by Moses his servant. (1 Kings 8:56) AMEN!

Father, continue in preparing Your child; mind, body, soul and spirit for their God-dreamed destiny. And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. (Ephesians 1:6) May they continue to grow from glory to glory and more like Your Son, everyday. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. (James 1:4 and 2 Corinthians 3:18) May Your sprit move powerfully through Your child’s hearts and hands!  Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the LORD of hosts.( Zechariah 4:6) Don’t let one more day fly off the kingdom calendar without You and Your child dreaming big dreams together. For he performs the thing that is appointed for me: and many such things are with him. (Job 23:14) Amen. Come, Lord Jesus! (Revelation 22:20)

For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.

(Habakkuk 2:3)

In the Mighty Name of Jesus we have prayed!

I love YOU,

Prayer for a Heart of Faith

Father,

Without FAITH it is impossible to please You. (Hebrews 11:6) I pray for a faith unshakable for Your children. You want Your child to have faith like Abraham.  Abraham had faith even when things looked “good as dead.” (Romans 4:19)  Faith is being certain (believing it is inevitable, free from doubt, trusting in never disappointing results) your promise will come to pass even if what Your child sees with human eyes is the total opposite. Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. (Hebrews 11:1)

Father, You want Your child to not doubt “at all” in their heart. Truly I tell you, whoever says to this mountain, Be lifted up and thrown into the sea! and does not doubt at all in his heart but believes that what he says will take place, it will be done for him. (Mark 11:23 AMP) How is this possible since our hearts are wicked and can trick us? The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it? (Jeremiah 17:9) How can we know what is truly in our hearts? Answer: What comes out of our mouths.  For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of. (Luke 6:45) Doubt is sneaky and hides well in the deepest part of the heart. When doubt dwells in the heart a lot of “self-talking” gives doubt space that belongs to faith. Your child’s “self-talking” goes something like this, “But what if I hope for this and it does not happen.” Father, give Your child the faith they need to trust in Your answering them! But I trust in you, O Lord; I say, “You are my God.” (Psalm 31:14) The only way You answer is perfectly. Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. (Matthew 6:10) AMEN!

Your child does not need to “worry” about what Your answer to prayer will be. Because You always answer “exceedingly and abundantly” over what they imagine. (Ephesians 3:20) Your child needs not worry how You will answer. You have promised an answer that would honor them. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. (Psalm 91:15)

Father, when Your child doubts I pray You love the doubt right out of their hearts! And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us. (Romans 5:5) Their faith and Your love needs to overcrowd doubt from Your child’s heart. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. (1 Corinthians 13:2) Yes, LOVE the doubt out of Your child’s heart!  Your love will give them the faith they need to believe when things look “as good as dead.” This makes all things possible for Your child who believes. AMEN!

In the Mighty Name of Jesus we have prayed!
Amen and Amen,
I love YOU,
Sheila

Prayer for God’s Will for a Marriage

Father,

I love you! You are our Maker. You are called the Lord of Hosts; The Holy One of Israel and Redeemer. But, there is more. You chose to name Yourself, Husband. For your Maker is your husband, the Lord of hosts is his name; and the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer, the God of the whole earth he is called. (Isaiah 54:5) You called Yourself a Husband to the children of Israel. You are the perfect Husband.  You love devotedly. You never leave. Your heart aches with compassion. You provide for all needs. You defend. You protect. I will betroth you to me forever; I will betroth you in righteousness and justice, in love and compassion.  I will betroth you in faithfulness, and you will acknowledge the LORD. (Hosea 2:19-20) Your love never changes. No one has to worry if You are going to withdraw Your love. You love even when we are unfaithful.  You are a Jealous God; with a furious love for us. (Exodus 34:14)

With grateful hearts we thank YOU for loving us this fiercely. (Song of Songs 8:6-7)

Father, You are the mirror of what a husband should be to his wife. The ancient Hebrew word ish translates to “husband.” The root meaning to ish is “to marry.”  Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. (Genesis 2:24) You ordained marriage as TWO becoming ONE. The meaning of “ONE” in the ancient hebrew text is to be “united” and to “agree.”(Strongs 259/3391) This union is powerful for Your Kingdom purposes! For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them. (Matthew 18:20) Marriage is a powerful union called to make Your Name Known and to further Your Kingdom. Give praise to the LORD, proclaim his name; make known among the nations what he has done. (Psalm 105:1) Two becoming One, with You being their foundation, has always been Your heart.  And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken. (Ecclesiastes 4:12) Hell cannot prevail against these three strands! AMEN!

You created us for love and unity. Then the LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him.” (Genesis 2:18) You did not want man to be alone and out of great compassion “made” for him a “helper.” Helper means so much in this verse. A “helper suitable for him” means this: “help that surrounds and protects one who is suffering or in a difficult situation.”(Strongs 5826/5828) What beauty is found in these two people called together as ONE; to surround and protect each other from the difficulties of a fallen world and to glorify Your Name for Your Kingdom’s sake, together; as ONE.  This marriage in agreement with Your will and ways is the most powerful force on the earth. AMEN!

Father, In the Mighty Name of Jesus I ask for You to strengthen the marriage of my friend. I pray both partners know they were chosen by You and trusted by You to erase loneliness; to defend, to love, and to protect their love in trying times. Give them wisdom generously as they help each other in reaching their dreams, calling, and their highest potential for Your Kingdom work. (James 1:5) I pray no weapon formed against this relationship to prosper. (Isaiah 54:17) I pray this marriage be rooted and grounded in Your love. Bind them together with Your love, as ONE.  And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. (Colossians 3:14) May Your love for them overflow from each of their hearts with loyalty abounding. May the Lord make your love increase and overflow for each other and for everyone else, just as ours does for you. (1 Thessalonians 3:12) AMEN!

Father, what does Your child do if their “helper” is part of their difficulties in this fallen world? They need to give it to YOU. “Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!” (Psalm 46:10) Your Word says You will perfect that which concerns us. The Lord will perfect that which concerns me; Your mercy, O Lord, endures forever; Do not forsake the works of Your hands. (Psalm 138:8) NKJV Thank You Father that You are perfecting what is concerning in this marriage and directing their steps, as well as closing doors, to avoid unwanted heartache and pain in this holy marriage. Your child needs to be reminded of this: What therefore God has united (joined together), let not man separate or divide. (Mark 10:9). Your child needs to cling to this promise: I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, the hopper, the destroyer, and the cutter, my great army, which I sent among you. (Joel 2:25) You are the Repairer of the Breach. Restore this family brilliantly, as only You know how. AMEN!

I pray this marriage and family glorifies Your Holy Name!

Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.
Ephesians 5:25

May it be so and may you believe so!

In the Mighty Name of Jesus we have prayed!
Amen and Amen,
I love YOU,
Sheila

Prayer for your future Husband/Wife:

Father,

I love you! You are our Maker. You are called the Lord of Hosts; The Holy One of Israel and Redeemer. But, there is more. You chose to name Yourself, Husband. For your Maker is your husband, the Lord of hosts is his name; and the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer, the God of the whole earth he is called. (Isaiah 54:5) You called Yourself a Husband to the children of Israel. You are the perfect Husband.  You love devotedly. You never leave. Your heart aches with compassion. You provide for all needs. You defend. You protect. I will betroth you to me forever; I will betroth you in righteousness and justice, in love and compassion.  I will betroth you in faithfulness, and you will acknowledge the LORD. (Hosea 2:19-20) Your love never changes. No one has to worry if You are going to withdraw Your love. You love even when we are unfaithful.  You are a Jealous God; with a furious love for us. (Exodus 34:14)

With grateful hearts we thank YOU for loving us this fiercely. (Song of Songs 8:6-7)

Father, You are the mirror of what a husband should be to his wife. The ancient Hebrew word ish translates to “husband.” The root meaning to ish is “to marry.”  Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. (Genesis 2:24) You ordained marriage as TWO becoming ONE.

AMEN!

Father, In the Mighty Name of Jesus I ask for You to direct the steps of my friend to the one YOU have created to erase their loneliness; to defend, love and protect them in trying times; and to be their helpmate in reaching their dreams, callings and highest potential for Your Kingdom work. I pray no weapon formed against this relationship to prosper. (Isaiah 54:17) I pray this marriage be rooted and grounded in Your love. What therefore God has united (joined together), let not man separate or divide. (Mark 10:9) Bind them together with Your love, as ONE.  And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. (Colossians 3:14) May Your love for them overflow from each of their hearts with loyalty abounding. May the Lord make your love increase and overflow for each other and for everyone else, just as ours does for you. (1 Thessalonians 3:12) AMEN!

Your Word says You will perfect that which concerns us. The Lord will perfect that which concerns me; Your mercy, O Lord, endures forever; Do not forsake the works of Your hands. (Psalm 138:8) NKJV Thank You Father that You are perfecting and directing their steps as well as closing doors to avoid unwanted heartache and pain. I pray my friend’s heart is protected and kept pure until the day they meet the one heaven has matched for them. AMEN! Father, it is time to bring this man and woman together for Your Kingdom’s sake. I pray that it is time. (Ecclesiastes 3:1)

Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.
Ephesians 5:25

May it be so and may you believe so!

Family,
So many have requested this prayer, “Restore All Things Back to Your Daughter”  I wrote last year. Here it is. Replace Daughter with Son if you need to. May God hear our prayers! Love You and AMEN!

Father,

I love you! I approach Your throne of grace with confidence in Your everlasting unconditional love for my friend. (Hebrews 4:16) Father, in the Name of Jesus, I ask you to be the “Restorer of the Breach” for your daughter. (Isaiah 58:12) Restore back to her a strained relationship she holds very dear in her heart. (Joel 2:25)  Bring wisdom, forgiveness, and understanding into each heart involved today. (James 1:5, 1 John 1:9, and Psalm 119:130) Pour Your love into all wounded hearts supernaturally. (Romans 5:5)

Show Your daughter You restore all things brand new and when YOU author a restoration things will soon be better than they have ever been. (2 Corinthians 5:17)  Remind her You are the One who can change the heart of kings. (Proverbs 21:1) How? Your love. Your love is louder than any pain, regret, or seemingly impossible situation. (Jeremiah 32:17) Father, may the two seeking reconciliation be overwhelmed with this love that can erase a wrong, give a second chance, and change a stony heart. (Ezekiel 36:26) May the healing power of forgiveness and true agape love overcome your daughter’s weary and torn heart. (Luke 7:47)

Daddy, work it out so your daughter completely forgets the pain she has become acquainted with during this difficult time. (Genesis 41:51) You will faithfully wipe away every tear from her eyes personally. (Revelation 21:4)  You will remember Your daughter’s cry for restoration by “working all things out for her good.” (Romans 8:28). Reward her for seeking and trusting You by answering this prayer exceedingly and abundantly more than she can DREAM. (Hebrews 11:6 and Ephesians 3:20)

Father, create a healthy and God-honoring relationships for your daughter and her loved ones.  In Your wisdom, reveal blind spots and hidden scars to be healed. Bring into the light words that have wounded, actions that have broken hearts, and hidden thoughts that have poisoned minds to not forgive or forget. (Ephesians 4:32)  Show your daughter where she needs to re-train her thoughts and re-new her mind to Your will of total forgiveness. (Romans 12:2) Teach her to forgive completely, the way You do. (Matthew 5:48) There can be no future for her without forgiveness. (Luke 6:37) Show her true love forgives and frees.

Father, You have taught us to bless and pray for those who have hurt us, abused, or left us.  You restored back DOUBLE to Job when he prayed for the friends. After Job had prayed for his friends, the LORD made him prosperous again and gave him twice as much as he had before. Job 42:10. Do the same for my friend. Restore back to her dignity, respect, and honor as she yields her heart to obey You and forgive. Where she does not want to forgive overrule her flesh. (Mark 14:38) When she struggles with this weakness be her strength. (2 Corinthians 12:9) Where she needs forgiveness grant that request. In Jesus’ Name.

Do not let Satan outwit Your daughter with his schemes. Teach her forgiveness is Your heart. This is why You are named the “Restorer of the Breach.” If there is anything to forgive I have forgiven in the sight of Christ for your sake, in order that Satan might not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes. 2 Corinthians 2:11. Help her to forgive so she can be forgiven.(Matthew 6:15)  Show her to believe in love over all things especially wrongs against her. (1 Corinthians 13)

“Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person.”
Corinthians 13:7 (AMP)

Last, whisper in her ear to forgive herself. For she is worthy of your love, worthy of Your Son’s death, and worthy of the blood that cleanses her whole and healthy.  She is worthy!  She has humbled herself to forgive and to ask for forgiveness, therefore; You will exalt her head high! Yes, you will. (1 Peter 5:6 and Psalm 3:3) AMEN.

You are worthy my sister. You are a daughter of the Most High God-period! When you fell down, you fell down His daughter. When you get up, you will get up His daughter. You are His child. There is never a time when God is against you, ever! You are His and His attention is upon you. His eye watches you. His hands are here to help you up. His heart is forever faithful to you. It is true. (Revelation 19:11) Amen and Amen.

Father, You are the great I AM. What does that mean for your daughter? You are whatever she needs as she seeks reconciliation. She can fill in the blanks. Say to Your  child, “I AM the Restorer of the Breach, I AM your Healer. I AM your Comforter. I AM your Provider. I AM your Way Maker. I Am the One who makes all things new. I AM the One who loves unconditionally. I AM the One who holds your dreams in My Hands. I AM your help. I AM your strength. I AM anything you need me to be at any time.”

I AM _________________________. Fill in the blank my friend. He is your answer and all you need.

He is YOUR God. He is the Great I AM. (Exodus 3:14)

May it be so and may you believe so!

In the Mighty Name of Jesus we have prayed!
Amen and Amen,
I love YOU,
Sheila

Day 16 of Praying the Three Stranded Prayer

Day 16 of prayer for “The Power of the Three Stranded Prayer” Family,

If you are not part of the family yet, join to the right to receive the 30-days of prayer.

Father,

I love you! You are faithful to lavish Your love on Your children. (1 John 3:1) There isn’t a future moment You will love them more and You will never withhold Your love from them, ever. (Romans 8:38-39) You see their afflictions and rescue them willingly. (Psalm 31:7-8) When Your children cry out ‘My foot is slipping’ You keep them from slumbering. (Psalm 121:3) When their anxiety is great You console them with peace. (Psalm 94:18-19)  When an abundance of tears are sown; shouts of joy is what Your children reap. (Psalm 126:5)

When Your child is “wayward of heart” you woo them back. (Hosea 14:4) When Your child needs mercy; You are slow to anger and abounding in love. (Jonah 4:2) When Your child is in lack; You restore back. (Psalm 126:1 and Luke 12:30) When they are sick; You heal them. (Isaiah 53:5)  When they feel forgotten; You are mindful of them. (Psalm 115:12) When Your children need wisdom You give it generously. (James 1:5) They may feel invisible but You have lovingly numbered the very hairs on their heads. “But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. “So do not fear; you are more valuable than many sparrows.” (Matthew 10:30-31) Your children where dead in their sins; You sent Your Son. (John 3:16-17) You make all things new and right. (Isaiah 30:18 and 2 Corinthians 5:17)

These truths show us Your responses to Your child’s cries are always what they need and more. Your promise is this: What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him. (1 Corinthians 2:9) AMEN!

Friend, What is the cry of Your heart? What did Satan steal from you that You want back? What did Satan trick you out of You regret? What is your dream, the impossible request, or Your greatest need? Write it down on a piece of paper. Keep the back of the paper blank to fill in how God will eventually answer your cry. Imagine how He could answer. It won’t be even close to what He has planned. You will be astonished. This is how God answers: Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us. (Ephesians 3:20)

Father, Why will You do this? For Your Names Sake! Yet he saved them for his name’s sake, that he might make known his mighty power. (Psalm 106:8) May You get all the praise, glory, honor and Your Name be made known! AMEN!

Father, until their prayers are answered, according to Your Word and Will, I ask You to bless them with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places as You have promised. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places. (Ephesians 1:3)

What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined,
what God has prepared for those who love him.
1 Corinthians 2:9

May it be so and may you believe so!

In the Mighty Name of Jesus we have prayed!
Amen and Amen,
I love YOU,
Sheila

Prayer for Overcoming Unbelief

Father,

I love you! You are not bothered by our requests. You silence the heavens to hear Your children! When Jesus was interrupted while speaking He paused and spoke to the one in distress. What did He say? “Do not fear, only believe.” (Mark 5:35-36) Jesus spoke crystal clear to those whose faith seemed to be wavering; to “not doubt in their heart,” but “only believe.” (Mark 11:24) When Your children’s faith is wavering, teach them how to believe You for the “here and now” and not just the things to come in heaven. (John 3:12) Don’t let them give up! Your children will see you move with their own eyes. I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. (Psalm 27:13)  We will wait for You to move and in the meantime we will believe You are moving. For since the beginning of the world men have not heard nor perceived by the ear, nor has the eye seen any God besides You, who acts for the one who waits for Him. (Isaiah 64:4)

Father, Thank you for the warning in Your Word that Satan comes and tries to take away the “Word” You have planted in hearts. Why? So they would not believe.  Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. The ones along the path are those who have heard; then the devil comes and takes away the word from their hearts, so that they may not believe and be saved. (Luke 8:11-12) I ask You, in the Name of Jesus, to cover Your child’s heart with the Blood of the Lamb, so Satan cannot come and take Your Word from them before it has time to take root! I pray their hearts to be fertile ground for Your Word to abide in. (Luke 8:15) Their perseverance will do it’s work! Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. (James 1:4)

Help us overcome our unbelief! (Mark 9:24) We do not want to be like the children of Israel who were not able to enter the Promised Land of “rest” because of their unbelief or callused hearts. (Hebrews 3:19) Help Your children to believe You are taking them to their place of the promised land. (Joshua 21:43) You are working ALL things out for their highest good! (Romans 8:28) We don’t need miracles, signs and wonders to believe You. We believe You because without faith it is impossible to please you. (John 4:48 and Hebrews 11:6) Your children praise You and thank You for strengthening their hearts to be steadfast as we wait and believe! They will have no fear of bad news; their hearts are steadfast, trusting in the LORD. (Psalm 112:7)

Father, Don’t let Satan steal the seed of Your Word planted from prayer!

We don’t want to be like Thomas. He doubted the resurrection! Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here, and see my hands; and put out your hand, and place it in my side. Do not disbelieve, but believe.” (John 20:27)  May we never doubt the most powerful thing on earth. We believe Your invisible hand is working in our visible world. We do! We will wait on You as You battle for Your child and take ever effort to become more like Your Son during the wait. That I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death. (Philippians 3:10) YES, in the meantime, we will give, love, serve, pray and meditate on Your Words day and night. (Joshua 1:8) AMEN!

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. (1 John 5:14)

May it be so and may you believe so!

In the Mighty Name of Jesus we have prayed!
Amen and Amen,
I love YOU,
Sheila
