Dear “The Power of the Three Stranded Prayer” Family,
If you are new please join blog to the right to receive the 30-Days of Prayer.
Hope this finds you pursuing God like you never have before! (2 Chronicles 16:9a)
October can be a life-changing month for you. We are going to take the next 30 days in October to pray some powerful prayers. Prayers that get answered. We are going to appeal to heaven on your behalf by praying a “Three Stranded Prayer” daily.
Your first step is to leave your most urgent prayer need in the comment section below. I will take your requests and write the prayers from your needs.
Are you ready for God to astound you with His goodness? (Psalm 27:13)
A few CRUCIAL things to prepare your heart before we begin our prayers:
Forgive anyone you need to.
I am not telling you anything you do not know. Scripture is clear; we are to forgive to be forgiven. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.” Mark 11:24-25. Matthew 24:12 tell us the love of many will grow cold in the end of days. How? It starts with an offense. Offense ices a heart; a heart God needs to abide in. Why is God abiding in your heart so crucial to answered prayer? Take a look at John 15:7. If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.
There may have even been a few people you have tried to forget even exist. That is not the way to forgive. The way to forgive is to pray God’s highest and best for the person/persons that has knowingly or unknowingly offended you. You may need to forgive one who has completely broken your heart. God will help you. He will. (2 Corinthians 12:10) Pray for them. And the LORD restored the fortunes of Job, when he had prayed for his friends. And the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before. Job 42:10
You do not wrestle with flesh and blood. You wrestle with real principalities! These spirits would like nothing more than for you to step into their traps and snares. Be wise. (Ephesians 6:12) God wishes nothing more than for you to be “untouchable” in the spirit realm so you can battle in prayer without these hindrances. So, let’s take some time now to release your offenders and pray God’s highest and best for them. You can do this!
Consecrate yourself unto Him.
This is a time where your heart needs to be completely accessible to God. You are going to have to “up root” any idols in your heart; re-train your thinking to that of the “Mind of Christ”; and you are to “abide in Him” so that whatever you ask for may be given to you. I will not know what God may be asking you specifically to do to consecrate yourself for this season. Oh, but you do! These are probably areas God has been whispering to you for quite some time. Let’s get serious! From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven has suffered violence, and the violent take it by force. Matthew 11:12
“Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the LORD will do amazing things among you.” Joshua 3:5
Obey anything He may be asking of you.
God might ask you to obey Him in a specific matter during this season of prayer. Obey! Obedience is better than sacrifice. What you may sacrifice later from not heeding to God’s request will not be worth it. He ALWAYS has your highest and best in His plans. His plans are for you to flourish. Your obedience may be the next step to an answered prayer. May that quickly sink in and may you quickly obey.
Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice. 1 Samuel 15:22
TWO THINGS TO DO DURING THIS 30-DAYS:
One, forward every blog post/email from the “Power of the Three Stranded Prayer” to any and all friends you know who need prayer. There is someone you know whose heart is carrying a burden it cannot bear. Send them this gift of prayer.
Share, tweet, forward!
Two, as God leads, you too, are to pray. Encourage your brothers and sisters with a “strand” in the prayer with a God-given word from your heart in the comment section on their request. It will mean so much!
It could save a life, change a day, change a heart, or change the course of history.
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
LAST, pray for me as I listen for the Spirit to guide me. If He doesn’t go with us we do not even want to go! “If your presence will not go with me, do not bring us up from here.” Exodus 33:15. You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore. Psalm 16:11. I am committing myself to your prayer needs and God’s will for this time. Please pray God’s wisdom, guidance, and strength. Plead the Blood of Jesus over my day, my family, and all those whose names appear on this blog, daily. Amen and amen again.
Leave your prayer request or a prayer you would like prayed on the “Power of the Three Stranded Prayer” Blog anytime during the 30-days of prayer!
Let’s pray to the God who answers and the Son who has made the way!
