Dear Believer,

 

The current forecast has Hurricane Zeta making landfall overnight Wednesday between Southeast Louisiana, in Mississippi, Alabama or the Florida panhandle. Stand in your front or backyard, extend your hand in the direction of the Gulf of Mexico and speak to Hurricane Zeta. In Mark 4:35-39, Jesus Christ spoke to the weather and commanded it to be calm. So, as believers, we are following His example. Pray with the authority that has been given to you in Jesus Christ and pray in faith. Please pray this prayer out loud and with fervency and determination. God has placed His power in our verbal expressions, so lift up your voice. Believe that your prayers will produce results in Jesus’ Name.

 

Continue to pray this prayer 1-2 times per day. Thank you, in advance, for standing on the wall for our region.

 

Prayer Against Hurricane Zeta

 

Triumphant Father, thank You for hearing our prayers concerning Hurricane Zeta. Thank You for reducing the power of this storm through Your Word and protecting the citizens of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and the Gulf Coast region. Lord, Your glory is higher than the heavens. You are great and Your power is absolute! Your understanding is beyond comprehension. Lord, Most High, You are awesome. You are the King of all the earth.

 

Eternal Father, using the authority given to us in the Name of Jesus, we speak to Hurricane Zeta and command peace, be still! We command the winds to dissipate and the barometric pressure to rise and normalize. In Jesus Name, we further declare that the upper level wind shear will increase to disrupt and destabilize the storm. By faith, as the people of God, we declare that Hurricane Zeta will not bring excessive flooding, electrical outages, harm or devastation to the Gulf Coast region. We confess that the rain that comes from this disturbance will not overwhelm our region.

 

Holy Spirit, we ask You to touch the hearts of every believer to pray against this storm system and calm the fears of those who are in its pathway. Holy Spirit, we pray that You will bless the companies that provide critical supplies for residents and business in the Gulf Coast Region. We ask that You ensure adequate supplies of food, water, batteries, building materials, and personal protective equipment as the COVID-19 pandemic continues. Further, we ask You to give Your wisdom to government officials and frontline workers who will lead storm response efforts. Father, Your Word helped with weather disturbances in the past, please cause it to help with Hurricane Zeta, as we speak peace to this storm.

 

Merciful Father, please forgive our citizens for all acts of sinfulness. Please forgive disobedience, rebellion, unbelief, forms of idolatry, immorality, and the rejection of Your Son, Jesus Christ. Father, have mercy on this region of our country and help us to forgive others.

 

Holy Spirit, help us all to overcome temptations and deliver us all from any impending destruction. We ask You to destroy every satanic assignment against our region.

 

Lord, You are worthy to receive glory and honor and power. You created all things, and they exist because You created what You pleased. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

A Prayer for the Wildfires in California

Dear Believer,

 

In Mark 4:35-39, Jesus Christ spoke to the weather and commanded it to be calm. So, as believers, we are following His example. Stand in your front yard or backyard, extend your hand in the direction of the California wildfires, and pray with the authority that has been given to you in Jesus Christ. Please pray this prayer out loud and in faith with fervency and determination. God has placed His power in our verbal expressions, so lift up your voice. Believe that your prayers will produce results in Jesus’ Name.

 

Continue to pray this prayer daily until the wildfires have ceased. Thank you, in advance, for standing on the wall for California.

 

 

A Prayer for the Wildfires in California

 

Almighty Father, we thank You for Your everlasting love, grace, and mercy. Thank You for hearing our prayers and drawing near to us when we call. Thank You for giving us, Your children, the power to speak Your Word and expect Your provision and protection. Lord, You are strong! You are the prevailing strength; the conquering God who is of superlative degree! Every force is subject to You, including nature. May the nations praise You, Lord. Then, the earth will yield its harvest and You will richly bless us and people all over the world will fear You.

 

Using the authority given to us by Jesus Christ, we speak to the atmosphere and command a low-pressure system to move into California and bring cooler temperatures and rain. Father, we declare that cloud-to-ground lightning strikes will not ignite any new fires or create any dangerous and unpredictable fire behavior on the current wildfires. We command the wildfires burning across the State to cease. We speak to the winds that are fueling the flames and command them to abate, now! In Jesus’ Name, peace, be still in the atmosphere!

 

Merciful Father, please have mercy on the Northern and Central California regions, where emergency personnel are battling the dangerous, spreading wildfires. Holy Spirit, provide Your wisdom and guidance to the Department of Forestry and Fire Protection leaders, area fire chiefs, state, county and community officials. Protect and strengthen every firefighter, emergency responder and volunteer. Touch the hearts of leaders across the U.S., and in other nations, to help California respond to this major emergency. Please protect residents, livestock, wildlife and businesses that are in harm’s way. Comfort those who have lost loved ones or their homes. Loving Father, we pray that You will bless the companies that provide critical supplies for residents and businesess in the hardest hit regions. We ask that You ensure adequate supplies of food, water, and personal protective equipment as the pandemic continues. Touch the hearts of Your people in the Body of Christ to help those who are most vulnerable, especially the poor, homeless, children and elderly. Remind us all to continue to pray until the wildfires are extinguished.

 

Righteous Father, forgive the citizens of California, for all acts of sinfulness. Please forgive disobedience, rebellion, unbelief, forms of idolatry, and the rejection of Your Son, Jesus Christ. We realize that there are those who do not live in awe of You. For it is You who gives us rain each spring and fall, assuring us of a harvest when the time is right. God have mercy on all in California.

 

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

 

Lord of Heaven’s Armies, 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.

Righteous Father, we thank You for being the Lord God who heals all diseases. Thank You for Your protection and for keeping our bodies healthy. Thank You for strengthening our immune systems and helping us to ward off infections and viruses. We sing praises to You and Your Name. We will sing loud praises to You, the One who rides the clouds. Your Name is the Lord; we rejoice in Your presence. We praise You Lord, our Savior. Each day, You carry us in Your arms. Sovereign God, You save us and rescue us from death. Lord, we are like olive trees, thriving in Your house. We will always trust in Your unfailing love. We will praise You forever for what You have done for us. We will trust in Your Name in the presence of Your faithful people.

Eternal Father, we declare that the Name of Jesus is greater than any name in this earth, including the Coronavirus. Jesus, You desire that we be in good health, as it goes well with our souls. It is Your will that our lives are peaceful and filled with hope, not dread. We expect Your Word to operate in all our lives. We declare that our immune systems are healthy and strong. Jesus, you personally carried our sins in Your body on the cross so that we could be dead to sin and alive to righteousness and by Your stripes, we were healed. Therefore, by faith, we stand on Your Word and we declare healing and total restoration for those who have contracted the Coronavirus (or any virus). We rebuke the spirit of fear that is creating fear and panic throughout our country and around the world. We cancel the assignments of the devil to create global disorder and unrest. We command peace be still!

Holy Spirit, please help doctors and scientists to identify effective vaccines and medications for the Coronavirus. Accelerate the research and testing process so that the vaccine can be administered before the projected dates. Protect those health care workers who are caring for patients and keep them safe. Please strengthen the bodies of those whose immune systems have been compromised. Show them the necessary steps they need to take to protect themselves and their loved ones. Remind our citizens to wash their hands frequently and thoroughly, using alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available; cover their coughs and sneezes with a tissue that is put in the trash. Help them to remember not to touch their eyes, noses or mouths with unwashed hands; and to stay home when they are sick. Touch the hearts of people to help their neighbors and those who may not have adequate resources or food.
Please protect our children and elderly and keep them safe from all sicknesses and diseases. Holy Spirit, please reveal a cure for the Coronavirus. Show the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO) and all other health organizations ways to end the spread of this disease. Pour out Your wisdom, knowledge and understanding to our leaders, government officials, healthcare professionals, scientists and other professionals who are responsible for addressing this crisis. Holy Spirit, help us to trust God for protection.

Beloved Father, forgive those who are using the Coronavirus as an excuse to speak against people from other countries. Forgive the US media for stirring up fear, confusion and chaos. Forgive those who are trying to benefit from the fears of our citizens. Forgive us for all acts of sinfulness, including not seeking Your counsel first about this pandemic. Forgive us for poor eating habits and lack of exercise which have resulted in compromised or diminished immune systems. Holy Spirit, remind us all of those we need to forgive and help us to be quick to forgive.

Holy Spirit, help us all not to yield to the temptations of fear and hoarding, but deliver us from the evil one. Lord of Heaven’s Armies, honor and majesty are before You. Strength and beauty are in Your sanctuary. We recognize that You are glorious and strong. We give You the glory that You deserve! In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

A Prayer of Forgiveness

Scripture Reading:

Psalm 100, Hebrews 12:14-15

 

Reflections of the Heart:

Alan Brandt was quoted in print in 1995 as saying “Being resentful, they say, is like taking poison and waiting for the other person to die” and the same year he was also quoted as saying “Resentment is like taking poison and hoping it’ll kill someone else.” www.quora.com

 

Scriptural Prayer:


Beloved Father, thank You for loving, forgiving and saving us.  Thank You for giving us opportunities each day to show love and forgiveness to others.  Thank You for increasing Your presence, power, anointing and abundance in our lives. Lord, You are great!  You are most worthy of praise! No one can measure Your greatness. We will let all that is within us praise You, Lord; with our whole hearts, we will praise Your Holy Name.  We will never forget the good things You do for us. You forgive all our sins and heal all diseases. You crown us with lovingkindness and tender mercies. You fill our lives with good things so that our youth is renewed like that of the eagle’s!  

 

Righteous Father, Your Word says that we are to make allowance for the faults of others and forgive anyone who offends us.  We remember that You forgave us, so we, therefore, must forgive others. We will be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to anger.  We will intentionally show deep love for each other and for our family members and friends because love covers a multitude of sins. We will not copy the behavior and customs of this world but will let You transform us into new persons by changing the way we think.  Then we will learn to know Your will for us, Lord, which is good and pleasing and perfect. We confess that we will not worry about anything; instead, we will pray about everything.  We will tell You what we need and thank You for all You have already done. Through prayer, we will be strengthened with all Your glorious power so we will have all the endurance and patience needed.  May we be refilled daily with Your joy.

 

Holy Spirit, help us understand that You love us unconditionally and that You are a forgiving God.  Reveal any unforgiveness that is in our hearts and give us wisdom and courage to seek spiritual and/or professional counseling.  Help us understand unforgiveness, which is classified as a disease in medical books, can lead to heart disease, cancer and other stress-related illnesses.  Touch and renew our hearts so that we release the past and go forward, fully forgiving others of any offenses. Give us the peace and freedom that come from letting go and allowing You to fill our hearts with love.

 

Forgiving Father, please forgive us for all acts of sinfulness including jealousy, contempt, pride, bitterness, hatred, malice and holding grudges.  Forgive us when we engage in acts of unforgiveness such as arguments, criticism, lying, gossiping and vengeful acts within our families, friends, workplace and community relationships.  Forgive us for expecting to be forgiven by You when we choose not to forgive others for past offenses.   Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed).  Holy Spirit, remind all of 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 reveal names or faces of people that you may need to forgive.  As He reveals them say, “I forgive name of person(s).”  Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

 

Holy Spirit, reveal how I can pray to forgive myself and others today.

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

 

Triumphant Lord, You are the eternal King; Your rule is everlasting.  All the people of the earth are nothing compared to You.  All of Your acts are just and true.  You alone have held the oceans in Your hand.  You measured the heavens with Your fingers and know the weight of the earth.  The Lord God Almighty is Your Name.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
