But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.” James 1:14

Father God, we are finally dissatisfied and weary in our will so, therefore, we are praying to You, the only One that can help us as we are declaring that our will, shall not be coerced, forced, pressured, strong armed, compelled, bullied or intimidated anymore because of the conditions or state of affairs in our lives which has tempted us to do the wrong thing at the wrong time!  We are determined and tenacious in this prayer to let the devil and the enemy of our faith know that we are going to uphold a spiritual standard of faith, cleanliness, righteousness, truth, holiness, correctness, and love as You renew our minds to yield not to temptation today, but allow thy Will be done, thy Kingdom come in us as it is in Heaven in Jesus’ name,  Amen!

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!

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!

 “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!

 “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!
