August 30th – Answer By Fire

“And call ye on the name of your gods, and I will call on the name of the Lord: and the God that answereth by fire, let him be God.  And all the people answered and said, It is well spoken.” 1 Kings 18:24

We thank You God because You answer by fire during our drowning situations!  Hallelujah!  We overcome these downpours of false accusations, downpours of lack, downpours of bad decisions, downpours of fear, downpours of sickness, depression, oppression, and despair because of Your consuming fire that burns out each and everything that doesn’t line up to the Word of God in our lives!  We say and pray thank You in Jesus’ name, Amen!


July 2020 Prayer Focus
July 5 – Against the Spirit of Prejudice
 “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.” Galatians 3:28
Father God as we Your church pray against the spirit of prejudice, discrimination, injustice, and bias in the world today, we pray James 3:17 (TPT) declaring that “…the wisdom from above is always pure, filled with peace, considerate and teachable. It is filled with love and never displays prejudice or hypocrisy in any form”. We agree with Your word as we pray against the spirit of prejudice in Jesus’ name, Amen!

July 12 – A Spirit of Worship

 “Exalt the Lord our God, and worship at his holy hill; for the Lord, our God is holy.” Psalms 99:9 As we pray for a Spirit of Worship, we pray that we shall not and will not stop worshipping You. For You, Lord are the only one worthy of pure, undefiled, perpetual praise and worship. Therefore, we pray against all distractions, disruptions and interruptions which arise to interfere with our worship declaring that if we have to bring all the interruptions and distractions to Your Holy Altar, we pray that we shall leave that Holy place free, healed, and delivered by You, the only true, and living God in Jesus’ name, Amen!
July 19 – The Children
 “Then people brought little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them and pray for them. But the disciples rebuked them.” Matthew 19:13 (NIV)
Our prayer is that we will forever pray for the children of this generation and generations to come. We also pray that the protecting hands of God be upon them as a shield to guard and fortify their lives against any plan or force of the enemy. We pray continually that children’s homes are filled with the love, joy, peace, and wisdom of God and they are being equipped daily in Your word which allows them to grow to maturity in Jesus’ name, Amen!
July 26 – Live By Faith
 “For we live by faith, not by sight.” 2 Corinthians 5:7 (NIV)
Jesus, we pray, say, and rejoice in You, Hallelujah! We are so grateful for faith as we decree and declare that after all we have been through, we are still going to live by faith. Man does not understand it, but we must live by faith because our lifespan, existence, being, healing, deliverance, and wealth shall be manifested undeniably because of our confidence, trust, hope, and faith in You. We pray that we shall do business by faith, walk by faith, talk by faith, see by faith, and live by faith always because our faith does not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God, (1 Cor. 2:5) in Jesus’ name, Amen!
