May 25: A Prayer for Our Educators

Heavenly Father, we thank You, for our educators. Thank You for blessing our educators to have a successful school year.  Thank You for each of their lives. Lord, we are grateful and we bless Your wonderful Name.  Your majestic Name fills the earth!  The heavens proclaim Your glory and the skies display Your craftsmanship.  Day after day they continually speak; night after night they make Your presence known.  Father, Your instructions are perfect, reviving our souls. Your decrees are trustworthy, making the simple wise.  Your commandments are right, bringing joy to the heart.  Your commands are clear, giving insight for living.  Revering You is pure, lasting forever.  Your laws are true; each one is fair.  They are more desirable than gold, even the finest gold.   They are sweeter than honey, even honey dripping from the honeycomb.

Triumphant Father, we declare Your Word over our educators as they approach the end of another school year.  As the people of God, we declare that as they hunger and thirst after righteousness, they will be filled. Favor will surround our teachers like a shield and that they will have good relationships with their peers and colleagues.  Father, we know that it is Your will that they prosper and be in health as their souls prosper. We declare that their families will live in peaceful habitations, in safe dwellings, and in quiet resting places.  We declare that stability, salvation, love, wisdom and knowledge abide in their homes.  Father, we confess that no weapon formed against our educators will prosper.

 

List a name of an educator and pray for him/her today.  Ask the Holy Spirit to show you how you can be of help him/her:

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Omnipotent Father, we ask You place a hedge of protection around our educators and their families.  Holy Spirit, touch their hearts to fear You and hate evil, pride and arrogance.  Holy Spirit, lead and guide them.  Let the mind of Christ be established in them.  Please give our educators wisdom, strength, and guidance as they organize plans and exams for the closing semester.  Holy Spirit, please refresh and renew their hearts and minds.

 

Wonderful Father, forgive our educators for all acts of sinfulness (specifically confess the sins aloud).  Forgive those educators who did not treat all of their students fairly.  Forgive those who did not wholeheartedly desire for their students to learn.  Forgive our educators for allowing our jobs to be a greater priority than our families.  Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that You have committed). Holy Spirit, remind our educators of all those they need to forgive and help them to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show You names or faces of people that You may need to forgive. As He shows You, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).” Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in Your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

 

Holy Spirit, help our educators to not yield to temptation; but deliver them from the evil one.

 

Sovereign Lord, Your Kingdom is an everlasting kingdom.  Your dominion endures throughout all generations.  Lord, You reign and You are clothed with majesty; You have girded Yourself with strength.  The world stands firm and cannot be shaken.  Your throne has stood from time immemorial.  You are from the everlasting past.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

March 13: A Prayer for Health Care in the United States

Glorious Father, we thank You for the blood of Jesus which covers us and protects us from harm, including disease. Thank You for blessing our nation with the best medical care in the world. Thank You for being the Lord who heals!  Lord, we will sing of Your unfailing love forever!  Young and old will hear of Your faithfulness.  Your unfailing love will last forever.  Your faithfulness is as enduring as the heavens.  All of heaven will praise Your great wonders, myriads of angels will praise You for Your faithfulness.  Who in all of heaven can compare with You, Lord?  What mightiest angel is anything like You?  The highest angelic powers stand in awe of You.  You are far more awesome than all who surround Your throne!

Redeeming Father, we commit the American Health Care system to You and command justice to run down like water, and righteousness like a mighty stream for the American people.  We thank You for every health care professional and declare that they will seek Your wisdom and knowledge and always pursue excellence in their chosen fields. They will be dedicated to the proper care and treatment of their patients and they will remember to show their patients mercy, just as You have shown mercy to them. Lord, You detest the use of dishonest scales, but You delight in accurate weights.  So we rebuke the spirits of greed and injustice within the insurance industry that has prevented many Americans from being able to afford quality health coverage that will meet their family’s needs without bankrupting their budget.  Your Word admonishes that everything should be done properly and in order so we command the American health care system to line up with Your Word now, in Jesus’ Name.

List your concerns about the American Health Care System.  Now take those concerns to the Lord in prayer:

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

Holy Spirit, please give the uninsured the wisdom and direction as they navigate through the Affordable Care Act and help them to find coverage that will meet their budget.  Show business owners new ways to generate increased revenue to cover the cost of offering health insurance to their employees.  Lord, we ask that the wait times for appointments at the VA Hospital will be shortened and that each veteran will be treated with dignity and respect.  Holy Spirit, we ask that You give our government officials the wisdom on how to cut down on the redtape that ensnares so many veterans from receiving all of the medical benefits they are entitled to. Lord, touch the hearts of the pharmaceutical companies so that they will make needed medications affordable to all Americans.  Lord, we cry out for Your intervention and guidance in Jesus’ Name.

Loving Father, forgive us as a nation for our many sins.   Lord, forgive us for creating a society that allows such a wide disparity between the ‘haves’ and the ‘have-nots.’  Forgive us for greed, arrogance, lack of empathy and compassion, and selfishness.   Forgive us for not making a healthy lifestyle a priority.  Father, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed).  Holy Spirit, remind us all of those we need to forgive and help us to be quick to forgive.  As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive.  As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).”  Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

Holy Spirit, help us all not to yield to temptation; but deliver us all from the evil one.

Glorious King, Your eternal Word stands firm in heaven.  Your faithfulness extends to every generation, as enduring as the earth You created.  Your regulations remain true to this day, for everything serves Your plans.  You are the mighty King, the lover of justice; You established fairness.  You have acted with justice and righteousness throughout Israel.  We exalt You Lord, our God and bow low before Your feet for You are Holy!  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

March 12: A Prayer for Employment in the United States

Awesome Father, we thank You for providing employment for us, Your children.  Thank You for sustaining those who are in need of a financial breakthrough.  Thank You for helping them daily.  Thank You, for being our source and our supply.  Holy and righteous is Your Name.  You are a great God, and a great King above all other gods.  You are our God; and we are the people of our pasture, and the flock under Your care.  Lord, You are the Creator of the heavens and the earth.  You are our strength and shield, and we trust in You.  You help us and our hearts are filled with joy.  We burst out in songs of thanksgiving.

Holy Father, it is Your will that Your children live healthy, productive, happy, and balanced lives. We confess that as those people who are seeking employment place their trust in You and do good; they will live safely in the land and prosper.  They will never let loyalty and kindness leave them.  They will tie them around their necks as a reminder; and write them deep within their hearts.  Then they will find favor with both You and men, and they will earn a good reputation.  Lord, we declare that they will trust in You with all their hearts; and not depend on their own understanding.  They will seek Your will in all that they do, and we believe that You will show them which path to take.  In Jesus’ Name, we command the doors of employment to open for our unemployed.  We declare that when they receive employment, they will work as if You are their direct supervisor.  They will not talk back or steal, but will show themselves to be entirely trustworthy and good. They will respect authority, walk in integrity and complete a full day’s work for a full day’s pay.

If you know someone who is unemployed or who wants new employment, write down their names and insert their names into this prayer: 

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

Righteous Father, help those who are unemployed to prepare for their new job.  Send people who will consult with them about how to prepare a resume and how to dress and prepare for an interview. Remind them that because they trust in You, they will not lack any good thing.  Holy Spirit, please help them to not grow discouraged or frustrated, but help them to continue to remain hopeful and expect their breakthrough to come forth.  Father, some need a miracle right now.  Please help them.  Holy Spirit, for those who have a poor work ethic, help them to improve.   Erase any negative perception caused by past work experiences.  Holy Spirit, help stretch their income until employment is found.

Merciful Father, forgive those people who demonstrate a poor work ethic.  Forgive them for not being on time, leaving early, and wasting time.  Forgive those who have not paid their tithes and offerings (consistently), or spent their money unnecessarily.  Forgive those for misusing company property.  Forgive those who have operated in arrogance, greed, lust, pride, arrogance, and rebellion.  Father, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed).  Holy Spirit, remind those people who are seeking employment to forgive and help them to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive.  As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).”  Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

Holy Spirit, help them not to yield to temptation; but deliver them from the evil one.

Great and marvelous are Your works, Lord God Almighty! Just and true are Your ways, O King of the nations.  Who can be compared to You?  Who is Your equal?  Lord, You are high above all nations.  Your glory is above the heavens.  Yours is the Kingdom, power, and glory forever.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

March 9: A Prayer for Incarcerated Youth and Adults

Worthy Father, we thank You for being a God of grace and mercy.  Thank You for protecting our friends, family members and loved ones who are incarcerated.  Thank You for Your faithful love which endures forever. Lord of Heaven’s Armies, You are our strength and our song; You have given us victory!  You are our God and we will praise You.  Lord, You are a warrior; Yahweh is Your Name.  Your right hand is glorious in power and smashes the enemy.  O Lord, who is like You among the gods?  You are glorious in holiness, awesome in splendor and You perform great wonders.

Forgiving Father, we commit our incarcerated loved ones to You.  We confess that as they trust in You and give You their lives that You will be with them and not allow them to be disgraced nor will You let their enemies rejoice in their defeat.  We declare that You will show our incarcerated youth and adults the right path and point out the road for them to follow.  We decree that they will be obedient and allow Your truth to lead and teach them.  We confess that it is in You and You alone that they will put their hope.  We declare a hedge of protection around our loved ones and that no weapon formed against them will prosper.  They will not follow the advice of the wicked, nor stand around with sinners, neither will they join in with mockers.  But, they will delight in Your Word, Father, and meditate on it day and night.  We confess that You, Lord, will be their refuge and their place of safety.  They will be rescued from every trap that is laid before them and protected from deadly disease.  They will not fear the terrors of the night, nor the arrow that flies in the day.  We confess that they will lie down and sleep at night and wake up in safety because You are watching over them.  In all that they say and do, we declare that they will let their light shine so that those around them will see their good works and glorify You, their Father in heaven.  For those youth and adults who do not know Jesus as their Lord and Savior, we confess that they will receive the Good News of the Gospel and confess with their mouths that Jesus is Lord and believe in their hearts that You raised Christ from the dead, so that they will be saved.

 

List the youth or adults that you know who are incarcerated and commit to praying for them this month:

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Holy Spirit, we ask that You will encourage those who have become discouraged. Remind them that the Father is forever with them, for He will never leave nor abandon them.  For those who have been wrongfully imprisoned, we ask that You would bring truth and revelation to their cases and open doors for them to be released.  Please strengthen their faith in the Father and draw them closer to Him.  Please comfort, strengthen and encourage the family members, especially the children whose parent is incarcerated.  Heal their hearts and mend any wound that the absence of this parent has created in their life.  Please protect them from the evil words and comments that society may attempt to put upon them.  Please destroy every generational cycle of incarceration within our families and community.  Please create within the Body of Christ a heart of compassion to minister to those who are incarcerated and to their families.

 

Faithful Father, we ask You to forgive the sins of those who are incarcerated.  Forgive them for making wrong choices and bad decisions.  Forgive them for trusting in their ways instead of Yours.  Forgive those who hold anger, bitterness and resentment.  Forgive our judicial system for wrongfully imprisoning the innocent.  Forgive those of us who have judged them wrongfully.  Forgive those of us who have helped them make poor choices by not teaching them Your ways.  Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed).  Holy Spirit, remind our incarcerated youth and adults of those they need to forgive and help them to be quick to forgive.  As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive.  (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive.  As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).”  Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

 

Holy Spirit, help them to not yield to temptation; but deliver them from the evil one.

 

Almighty Lord, You alone are God.  You are the First and the Last.  It was Your hand that laid the foundations of the earth; Your right hand spread out the heavens above.  When You call the stars, they all appear in order.  You are holy, holy, holy, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies; the whole earth is filled with Your glory.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

March 8: A Prayer for a Disciplined Lifestyle

Loving Father, we thank You for Jesus. Thank You for working in us; giving us the desire and the power to do what please You. We give You thanks, O Lord, with all our hearts. We will sing Your praises. We bow before Your holy Temple as we worship. We praise Your Name for Your unfailing love and faithfulness, for Your promises are backed by all the honor of Your Name. As soon as we pray, You answer us. You encourage us by giving us strength.

 

Divine Father, apart from Jesus, the True Vine, we can do nothing. We realize that our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit.  We do not belong to ourselves for You bought us with a high price, so we must honor You with our bodies. As true disciples of Jesus Christ, we will remain faithful to His teachings. We know the truth, and the truth as set us free. We will remain strong and immovable. We understand the impact of our influence on others, therefore we make a decision today to live in such a way that will not cause another believer to stumble and fall. Father, we declare that we listen to Your voice. By the power of the Holy Spirit, we take authority over our minds, wills, and emotions because we are surrounded by a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith. Therefore, we strip off every weight that slows us down; especially the sin that easily trips us up. And we declare that we will run with endurance the race that You have set before us. We will do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the Champion who initiates and perfects our faith.

 

Holy Spirit, remind us that the Father has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline. We ask You to guide our lives so that we won’t do what our sinful nature craves. Give us desires that are opposite of what our sinful nature desires so that we can remain faithful to the calling of God on our lives. Show us how to develop an ear to hear You when You speak the Father’s will to us and help us to be quick to obey. Whenever we are in danger of backsliding into our old ways, please help us to remember that we are the salt and light to this world.

 

Holy Spirit, today I will commit to developing greater spiritual discipline by doing the following (write down the Holy Spirit’s instructions to you):

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Precious Father, forgive us of our sins. Forgive us for neglecting and rejecting spiritual discipline in our personal lives. Forgive us for straying away and leaving Your righteousness to follow our own sinfulness. Forgive us for being foolish and prideful. Forgive us for failing to hide Your Word in our hearts on a regular basis to safeguard ourselves from sinning against You. Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that You have committed). Holy Spirit, remind us of those we need to forgive and help us to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive.  As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).”  Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

 

Holy Spirit, help us all to not yield to temptation; but deliver us from the evil one.

 

God, You are honored in Judah. Your Name is great in Israel. Jerusalem is where You live and Mount Zion is Your home. Salvation comes from You, the God who sits on the throne and from the Lamb! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and strength belong to You forever and ever!  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

March 6: A Prayer for Holy Lifestyles

Loving Father, we thank You for our lives. Thank You for knowing each of us intimately. Thank You for sending the Holy Spirit to be our Helper and Teacher. Thank You for blessing us socially, relationally and emotionally.  Father, we sing praises to You, our God and strength. We will sing, beat the tambourine and play the sweet lyre and harp.  Your dwelling place is lovely.  We faint with longing to enter Your courts with our whole beings, bodies and souls.  We will shout joyfully to You, the living God.

Sovereign King, we confess that we will truly understand that our bodies are the temples of the Holy Spirit. We will give our bodies to You and will be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind You will find acceptable, for this is truly the way to worship You. We will not copy the illicit behavior and customs of this world, but we will let You, Father, transform us into new people by changing the way we think.  As we continue to learn and grow in Your Word, we will know Your will for us, which is good and pleasing and perfect.  We will know You and all of Your fullness. We will worship You and be thankful. We will not do vile and degrading things with each other’s bodies. We will not trade the truth about You for a lie. We will not worship the things You have created, instead of You, the Creator, and we will not be abandoned to shameful desires. In Jesus’ Name, we cancel every generational curse of perversion. We decree that we will not partake in pornography, fornication, homosexuality, bestiality, or any other sexual perversion.

 

I commit to removing the following areas of sin from my life:

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Holy Spirit, our Deliverer, some of our members are ensnared by the sexual perversions of this world.  Please remove the scales from their eyes and circumcise their hearts so that they can see themselves reflected in God’s Word. Remind them that they are a chosen people, royal priests, a holy nation, Your very own possession.  Deliver us all from the shame and anger that perversion and sin creates in our hearts and minds.  Remind us all that there is no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus and that nothing can ever separate us from the Father’s love that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.  Help us to make Godly choices. Convict us when we watch, read, listen to and visit internet sites that are ungodly.  Surround us with strong Christian friends who will support us and hold us accountable when we are wrong.  Lead us to people who love Christ more than culture.

 

Merciful Father, forgive us for any sexual sin we have participated in including pornography, fornication, oral sex, homosexuality, and taking inappropriate pictures of ourselves.  Forgive those who do not value their bodies. Forgive those parents and guardians who have not created holy environments in their homes and lived as models of righteousness and integrity before their children and youth. Forgive those single parents who are not living celibate lives. Forgive those married parents who are engaged in extra-marital affairs. Forgive those parents who are involved with pornography and have made pornographic material accessible to their children and youth. Forgive us, as the Body of Christ, for turning a blind eye to sin.  Forgive us for not openly discussing sexual purity with our youth. Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed). Holy Spirit, remind us all of those we need to forgive and help us to be quick to forgive.  As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive.  As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).”  Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

 

Holy Spirit, help us all to not yield to temptation; but deliver us from the evil one.

 

Almighty God, You are the Alpha and Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.  Blessing and honor and glory and power belong to You who sits on the throne and to the Lamb forever and ever.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

February 27: A Prayer for Our Disabled Veterans

Most Holy Father, thank You for all of our disabled veterans. We thank You for their unstoppable spirit and loyal service to The United States of America. Thank You for Your hand of grace which has preserved their lives. What awesome miracles You perform for Your people! Our lives are in Your hands and You keep our feet from stumbling. You have tested us and purified us like silver. We glorify Your wonderful Name. Your faithfulness to Your children is never-ending. We are grateful to belong to You. Your salvation surrounds us like city walls and praise flows from the lips of all those who enter Your presence. You are our everlasting light and glory.

 

Almighty Father, we decree that the disabled veterans in our Church Family are the apple of Your eye. You are faithful to them and have delivered them from the wicked with Your sword. We confess that they are Your treasured ones whose hunger You always satisfy. We declare that their children have plenty and they will leave an inheritance for their descendants. We decree that when our disabled veterans are surrounded by troubles, You will protect them from the anger of their enemies. The power of Your right hand saves them. We declare that You will work out Your plans for their lives. Because of Your faithful, enduring love they are never abandoned, for you made them. It was nobody but You who redeemed their lives and snatched them from the power of the grave. We declare over them that despite physical loss, they are overwhelmingly victorious through Christ, who loves them. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither their fears for today nor their worries about tomorrow – not even the powers of hell can separate them from Your love, Father.

 

Holy Spirit, I commit to pray for the needs of the following disabled veterans today:

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

Holy Spirit, please encourage and uplift the hearts of those disabled veterans who feel lost, unappreciated, and rejected. Save those who don’t know the Lord Jesus in the pardon of their sins. Please help our Church Family to embrace our disabled veterans with love and honor for their sacrifices on our behalf. Help us to incorporate them into the ministry, encouraging them to use their gifts to Your glory. We ask you to lead and guide President Barack Obama, and our military and congressional leaders to develop and implement effective programs that will aid in sheltering our homeless veterans, providing proper mental and physical healthcare to them, and supplying them with fair funding for their continued education. Let the peace that comes from Christ rule in the hearts of our disabled veterans.  May they always be thankful. Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill their lives.

 

Gracious Father, forgive the sins of our disabled veterans. Forgive those who are so scarred with disappointment and confusion that they reject Your love. Forgive those who have not been obedient to follow the instructions of their physicians. Forgive them for purposely neglecting their mental and physical health needs. Forgive those of us, Lord, who have ignored and abandoned our disabled veterans. Forgive us for not honoring them for their service to our nation. Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed).  Holy Spirit, remind our disabled veterans of those they need to forgive and help them to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive.  As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).”  Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

 

Holy Spirit, help our disabled veterans not to yield to temptation; but deliver them from the evil one.

 

Magnificent Lord, You are a warrior. Yahweh is Your name! Your right hand is glorious in power. It smashes the enemy. In the greatness of Your majesty, You overthrow those who rise against You. The strong right arm of the Lord is raised in triumph. The strong right arm of the Lord has done glorious things! In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

February 18: A Declaration of Favor for The Prayer Institute

Great Father, we thank You for giving Pastors Kirbyjon and Suzette Caldwell the vision for The Prayer Institute. Thank You for the awesome platform it has given to prayer, as it is such a vital discipline for every believer. Thank You for the wonderful board members, staff and diligent volunteers You have assembled together to maintain the operations of The Prayer Institute. O Lord, when we think of Your goodness and boundless kindness toward The Prayer Institute, we cannot help but to erupt in high praise! Your awe-inspiring deeds will be on every tongue as we proclaim Your greatness. Everyone will share the story of Your wonderful goodness and sing with joy about Your righteousness. We worship You, Father. We take joy in being in Your presence.

Strong and Mighty Father, we decree that You are the source of hope for The Prayer Institute. Favor surrounds The Prayer Institute like a shield. We declare abundant blessings and favor upon the staff. We also declare Your abundant blessings and favor upon the Board of The Prayer Institute. We command doors of unprecedented opportunities to open for The Prayer Institute. We decree that as they serve Your people, Lord, their good deeds will shine out for all to see, causing people everywhere to give You praise. In faith, we expect You to expand the influence and reach of The Prayer Institute.  We believe that the Holy Spirit will ignite more and more people to desire a richer and more powerful prayer life, as The Prayer Institute goes forth in ministry. We decree that every need will be met according to Your riches in glory.

Holy Spirit, I will pray the following for The Prayer Institute:

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Holy Spirit, we ask that You draw The Prayer Institute’s staff and board members closer together in the spiritual unity that is only found in Jesus Christ. Let the same mind be in them that was also in Him. Help them to spot problems and issues quickly and to be spiritually wise and discerning as they seek to solve them. Remind them to take good care of themselves and to not neglect their own spiritual, emotional, and physical care. Keep them balanced in their public and private lives so they are efficient and effective in all that they do. Draw the right people to invest their time, talent, and finances. Protect The Prayer Institute from any plans the enemy may have to hinder the good works that they do. We ask that You flood them with faithful benefactors who will give to the services they provide to the Body of Christ and to the community.

Redeeming Father, please forgive the Board members, staff and volunteers of any sins they have committed. Forgive those who have been neglecting themselves and their families and not taking time to rest. Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that You have committed). Holy Spirit, remind The Prayer Institute’s staff and board members of all those they need to forgive and help them to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show You names or faces of people that You may need to forgive. As He shows You, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).” Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in Your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

 

Holy Spirit, help the Board members, staff and volunteers of The Prayer Institute to not yield to temptation; but deliver them from the evil one.

 

Magnificent Lord, You are robed in majesty and armed with strength. The world stands firm and cannot be shaken. You are worthy, O Lord our God, to receive glory and honor and power. You created all things and they exist because You created what You pleased. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
