Heavenly Father, thank You for the rain we have received this year. We remember the terrible drought we experienced and we are thankful for the abundance of rain. As kings of the King and lords of the Lord, we thank You for granting us the authority to speak peace to both spiritual and natural events. Thank You for healing our ecosystem and restoring our agricultural system. Gracious Lord, we come singing a new song to You. We will sing praises to You, our Maker. We will praise Your Name with dancing accompanied by the tambourine and harp. Lord, You delight in Your people and crown the humble with victory. We, the faithful rejoice that You honor us. We will sing for joy as we lie on our beds. You are an awesome King!
Today, using the power and authority Jesus Christ has given you, go outside and speak to the weather as you continue praying this prayer:
Worthy Father, as Your dear children, it is Your will that we imitate You in all matters. When the storm was raging in the Sea of Galilee, Jesus spoke to it and said, “peace, be still!” Your Word says, “And the wind ceased and there was a great calm.” We know that faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it is the assurance about things we cannot see. Therefore, by faith, we command the weather to be peaceful with a perfect balance of sunshine and moderate temperatures in the City of Houston on election day. We destroy the attempts of satan to impact the atmospheric conditions in any way.
Holy Spirit, help each believer in our city to speak boldly with authority to the weather system, so that there are no disruptions for voters to get to the polls on election day.
Faithful Father, forgive the citizens of Houston, including me, for all acts of sinfulness that would cause the weather to respond in a harmful way. Forgive those for not believing that all things are possible through Jesus Christ who strengthens us. Forgive us for walking in doubt, unbelief, arrogance, and pride. 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.
Majestic Lord, You are the blessed and only Sovereign One. You are the King of kings and Lord of lords, who rides across the ancient heavens. O God, You are awesome in Your sanctuary. You are the God of Israel who gives strength and power to Your people. Blessed are You, forever. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
