October 18: A Prayer for President Barack Obama, His Administration and Congress

Almighty Father, we thank You, Lord, for the United States of America.  Thank You for President Barack Obama and his administration.  Thank You for entrusting us to pray for our leaders.  We honor You.  You are great and Your power is absolute. Your understanding is beyond comprehension.  We love You and extol Your Holy Name.  We bow before Your holy temple and worship You.  We praise Your Name for Your unfailing love and faithfulness.  Your promises are backed by all the honor of Your Name.  As soon as we pray, You answer us and encourage us by giving us strength.  Every king in all the earth will hear Your Words and thank You.  Yes, they will sing about Your ways.  Your glory is great!

 

Heavenly Father, we declare that Your wisdom and judgment will guide President Obama, his administration and Congress.  We confess that they will not turn their backs on wisdom, for she will protect them.  As they hold onto Your wisdom and obey her, they will experience long life, riches and honor.  Wisdom will enter their hearts and knowledge will fill them with joy; wise choices will watch over them and understanding will keep them safe.  By faith, we decree that President Obama and his administration will not follow the advice of the wicked, stand around with sinners or join in with mockers.  But, their delight will be in Your law, and they will meditate on it both day and night.  They will be like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season.  We decree that their leaves will never wither and they will prosper in all that they do.  By faith, we declare that they will conduct their lives in ways that please You.  As a result, we are expecting You to make their enemies be at peace with them.  As they make You their refuge and shelter, we decree that no evil will conquer them and no plague will come near their homes.  We confess that Your angels will protect them and their families and uphold them in their hands.  We declare that Your hedge of safety and security will protect their families and no weapon formed against them will prosper. Every tongue that rises against them in judgment will be condemned.

 

Holy Spirit, show me how I can pray specifically for President Obama and his administration:

 

 

Holy Spirit, unite the Body of Christ to pray continually for President Obama and his leadership team.  Lord, please strengthen President Obama, his administration and Congress as they tackle the many issues that plague this country.  Help them to not be easily defeated or distracted.  Help them to see Your hand in all that they do.  When politics begin to muddy the water, please remind our President, his administration and Congress that their first priority is to You and then to the citizens of this nation.

 

Mighty Father, please forgive our President, his administration and Congress for not always consulting with You before making decisions.  Forgive them when they put their intellect above Your truth.  Forgive our nation for racism, sexism and ageism.  Forgive us for idolatry, lying, deceit and character assassination. Forgive us for being self-serving, boastful, proud and arrogant.  Forgive us, as a nation, for not acknowledging Your authority and sovereignty.  We realize that our sins are many.  Father, please have mercy on us.   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, as a nation, help us not to yield to temptation; but deliver us from the evil one.

 

Triumphant Lord, You merely spoke and the heavens were created.  You breathed the Word, and all the stars were born.  You assigned the sea its boundaries and locked the oceans in vast reservoirs.  The whole world will stand in fear and awe of You.  When You spoke, the world began!  It appeared at Your command.  You alone are the Almighty King!  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

October 13: A Declaration for Justice

Eternal Father, we thank You for being the just Judge.  Thank You for hearing us when we call to You for help for our nation.  Thank You for moving on the hearts of Your people to establish peace, justice and righteousness in the earth.  Lord, we will praise You with all of our hearts.  Your love for us is so very great, we will give glory to Your Name forever!  Lord, You have rescued us from the depths of death.  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.

 

Immortal Father, we command justice to run down like water and righteousness like a mighty stream within our judicial system in America. Your Word says that justice and righteousness are more acceptable to You than sacrifice. Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne. We confess that justice and righteousness will prevail in our nation, homes, workplaces, churches, schools and communities.  You are the Lord who loves all of humankind; You are no respecter of persons.  Lord, You created us in Your image and it is Your desire that we, Your creation, love each other as we love ourselves.  Lord, we believe that You will raise us above the injustices of racism that our nation has witnessed lately.  And because Your Spirit dwells within us, the Body of Christ, we confess that we will walk in righteousness and integrity.  We will not discriminate against anyone because of their race, their sex, or their age.  We will not pay back evil with more evil, but we will always do things in such a way that everyone can see that we are honorable.

 

Holy Spirit, as I watch the news, show me how to pray about the injustices in our nation:

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

Holy Spirit, please help our nation to heal from the wounds that the recent instances of injustice have inflicted on the American people.  Remind the members of the Body of Christ to not sin by letting anger control them. Grant each of us the desire and commitment to daily walk in Your justice and righteousness without prejudice or partiality.  Deal with the hearts of those Christians who practice this ungodliness.  Remind them to walk in Your Spirit and not in their flesh.  Guide parents on how to talk with their children about this subject in a way that will not instill fear, anger, or hatred.  Holy Spirit, I ask that You search my heart for areas of hidden discrimination or bias and remove it immediately from me.

 

Abba Father, forgive us for any acts of racism, sexism, and ageism.  Forgive our nation for its injustice, prejudice, and oppression.  Forgive our nation for loving power and things instead of people.  Please forgive those persons who are presently practicing racism, sexism, and ageism.  As the Body of Christ, we renounce the gods of racism, sexism, and ageism.  Forgive me, Father, for not acknowledging that when I make blanket statements about race, sex, or age that I am discriminating.  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 to not yield to temptation; but deliver us from the evil one.

Triumphant King, You are greater than any other god. You do whatever You please throughout all heaven and earth, and on the seas and in their depths.  You cause clouds to rise over the earth. You send lightning with the rain and release the winds from Your storehouses.  Your Name, Lord, endures forever, Your fame is known to every generation.  Yours, Lord, is the Kingdom, the power, and the glory, forever.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

October 6: A Prayer for Healthy Pregnancies and Healthy Children in Our Windsor Village Church Family

Gracious Father, we thank You for being the source of life.  Thank You for every expectant mother in our congregation.  Thank You for every child that has been born into the Body of Christ.  Father, we praise You.  We, who serve in Your house, praise You.  Lord, You are good; we celebrate Your lovely Name with music.  We know Your greatness, Lord; You are greater than any other god.  You do whatever pleases You throughout all heaven and earth, and on the seas and in the depths.  We sing praises to Your Name.  Every day we proclaim the good news that You save!

 

Omnipotent Father, our Creator, we declare that the children who are born into our Church Family are healthy and well loved. Lord, You knit them together in their mother’s womb.  We declare that each baby is wonderfully made. Your workmanship is marvelous!  You made all of their delicate, inner parts. Today, we confess that every baby in utero has exactly 46 chromosomes and they will develop without defect or deformity.  We declare that every cell, muscle, tissue and organ will develop according to Your divine purpose and plan.  We decree that mothers will carry their babies to full term. We destroy every demonic assignment against our unborn, including the assignment of premature birth. In Jesus’ Name, we confess that there will be no miscarriages or infertility in our congregation.  We decree that sickness and disease, including SIDS, autism, Down Syndrome, ADD, ADHD, juvenile diabetes, cancer, dyslexia, and all other childhood diseases or dysfunctions, have no legal right to inhabit our children because God is their Shepherd and Shield.

 

Holy Spirit, help me to pray strategically for the following families who are expecting a child:

 

 

Holy Spirit, we ask You to increase Your wisdom, knowledge, and understanding in every expectant mother.  Remind them to get the proper rest and nutrition.  Lord, watch over each expectant mother and keep her body healthy. Provide a support network of family and friends who will help them during and after their pregnancies.  Strengthen the minds, bodies and spirits of parents who have children with special needs. Comfort and encourage those parents who have experienced a miscarriage. For those couples who desire to have children, but have been unable to conceive, we ask that You would help them to not be anxious, but to trust You that in the ordained time and season, they will bring forth a child for Your glory.

 

Holy Father, please forgive our parents and expectant parents for any acts of sinfulness.  Forgive those who have committed fornication or adultery. Forgive our parents for stubbornness, quick tempers and lack of patience.  Forgive them for not seeking help when they are feeling anxious, depressed, fretful, angry or overwhelmed.   Forgive us as for not offering more support to our parents.  Forgive us for the times when we have been insensitive to those families who have children with special needs.  Father, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed).  Holy Spirit, remind our parents 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 parents not to yield to temptation; but deliver them from the evil one.

Eternal God, You are greater than we can understand.  Your years cannot be counted.  You draw up the water vapor and distill it into rain.  Only You know where light comes from and where darkness goes.  You direct the movement of the stars, binding the cluster of the Pleiades and loosening the cords of Orion. Holy and triumphant is Your Name!  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

September 9:A Prayer for Healing and Deliverance from Cancer

Faithful Father, we are thankful for Jesus, the Living Word, who is seated at Your right hand.  We give thanks to You, Lord, for You are good.  Your faithful love endures forever.  Who can list Your glorious miracles, Lord?  We give thanks to You, Jesus, for You took our sicknesses and removed our diseases.  We give thanks to You for You personally carried our sins in Your body on the cross, and freed us from the bondage of death.  By Your wounds, we were healed. Holy Spirit, we thank You for Your power that brings healing to our bodies and souls.  Father, we will exalt You, our God and King, and praise Your Name forever and ever.  Daily, we will praise You, for You are great and most worthy of praise!  No one can measure Your greatness.  We will meditate on Your majestic, glorious splendor and Your wonderful miracles.  Your awe-inspiring deeds will be on every tongue; we will proclaim Your greatness.

 

Glorious Father, You are our Healer, and Your Word declares everyone who calls on Your Name will be saved.  By the authority in Your Name, we decree that all forms and types of cancer within the bodies of Your people will no longer have dominion. We decree that no weapon formed against the spiritual and physical bodies of Your people will prosper.  We cancel the devil’s assignments to destroy their bodies with carcinoma, sarcoma, leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma, and all forms of cancer, including the central nervous system.  We declare that all malignant and abnormal cells are dying; they are no longer dividing and spreading through the blood or lymph systems.  We trust in You, our God who brings the dead back to life and who creates new things out of nothing; therefore, we declare life and restoration into their bodies. By faith, we boldly command complete healing of the immune system in the bodies of Your children.

 

Holy Spirit, please help those who are overcoming cancer to set their hope on You so that they will continue to obey God’s commands and not forget His glorious miracles. Continue to use all health professionals as instruments of healing; through the practice of medicine, prayer offered in faith, the laying on of hands and other means of healing that You have ordained.  Give researchers divine insight into the causes, diagnoses and treatment of cancers.  Strengthen those persons who are suffering with these conditions in their bodies, and help them to live out their faith in You. Increase their endurance and patience as they walk through the healing process.

 

Today, I will cry out to the Lord as I pray in faith for:

 

Gracious God, forgive us for doubting Your love and power to heal our bodies. Forgive us for being irresponsible with our health. Forgive us for not acknowledging the abundance of Your healing virtue, grace and mercy which we have received through our Lord and Savior.  Forgive us for ungodly behavior including:  unforgiveness, bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of evil behavior.  Forgive our nation for creating unhealthy conditions in our food supply and environment.  We confess our sinfulness for we have not always obeyed Your commandments and lived faithfully in Your Word.  Have mercy upon us according to Your Word.  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 those who need healing to not yield to temptation; but deliver them from the evil one.

All glory, majesty, power and authority belong to You before all time, in the present and beyond all time.  You are the King of kings and Lord of lords.  Heaven is Your throne and the earth is Your footstool.   In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

September 8: A Prayer Concerning Overcoming Addictions

Heavenly Father, thank You for Jesus, the Name that is above all names. Thank You for giving us the power of the Holy Spirit which is greater than any power that exists in this world. Thank You for never giving up on us, even when we fail time after time. You are so merciful and kind. We cannot live without You, Lord. We will praise You with our whole hearts. We will tell of the marvelous things You have done. We are filled with joy because of You, Most High, and we sing praises to Your Name! We know You to be a shelter for us when we are oppressed and troubled. You never abandon those who search for You. Lord, we love You. You are our strength. You are the Rock in whom we find protection and safety. Your Name is worthy of praise!

Faithful Father, it is not Your will for us to be lost and held captive by addictions to drugs, alcohol, sex, food, gambling, or any other vices. We decree that whoever the Son has set free is truly free. Therefore, we rebuke the spirit of addiction that seeks to destroy the lives of those within our personal families and in our community. There is no other name that is powerful enough to save our loved ones who are bound by addiction than the Name of Jesus. We are the righteous, and our earnest prayers have great power, producing wonderful results. We will not waver and doubt when things seem to get worse instead of better. We know that You will respond to our faith. Therefore, we declare that we will not cease to pray until our loved ones who are bound by addiction are released and delivered. We declare, in the Name of Jesus, that our homes, our families, and our communities are restored back to You!

 

List the names of friends, family, or neighbors who are struggling to break free of an addiction. Commit to pray specifically for them today:

 

Holy Spirit, make us keenly aware of those within our families and communities who are hurting and bound. Give us a heart of compassion toward them. Show us how to reach out to them without judging or condemning them. Remind us of Your love and grace that brought us through our trials. Heal those who are bound by addiction in every area of their hurt.  Strengthen and help those who have been hurt by the fallout of addiction – the grandparents raising grandchildren, incarcerated parents, abandoned and abused children, impoverished families, and those who have lost loved ones due to addiction. Help us, as the Body of Christ, to build better partnerships with community organizations who are reaching out to house, educate, and rehabilitate those who want to come out of addiction. May we be salt and light to them as the Lord has commanded.

 

Righteous Father, please forgive us for not being there when we should have for those who turned to drugs for comfort. Forgive us for judging and condemning those who are addicted. Forgive us for overlooking opportunities to show love and compassion to the hurting families who are suffering from the effects of addiction. Forgive those who are addicted for turning to something unholy for help instead of turning to You. Forgive them for not responding to the voice of wisdom and making unhealthy choices in life. Forgive those of us who have at one time, knowingly or unknowingly, contributed to the cause of another’s addiction. Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that You have committed). Holy Spirit, remind those who are addicted 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 those who are addicted to not yield to temptation; but deliver them from the evil one.

 

Glorious Lord, ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything You made, we can clearly see Your invincible qualities – Your eternal power and Your divine nature. O Sovereign Lord, You have only begun to show Your greatness and the strength of Your hand to Your servants. Is there any god in heaven or on earth who can perform such great and mighty deeds as You do? In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

August 23: A Prayer for Our Ailing/Sick Family Members

Glorious Father, we thank You for salvation, the greatest miracle of all. Thank You for Your eternal love and unmerited grace. Thank You for sending Your Son, Jesus, to break the power of the devil and to bring us hope, health, and healing. We give thanks because You are near. People everywhere will tell of Your wonderful deeds. Lord, You are good and Your unfailing love endures forever. You are great, and You perform wonderful deeds. You alone are God. How great are Your signs and how powerful are Your wonders!

Awesome Father, Jesus Christ, Your Son, turned water into wine, cleansed lepers, healed the sick, raised the dead, and fed five thousand people with two fish and five loaves of bread. Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples so that we would believe that He is the Christ, the Son of God, and have life in His Name.  We believe Jesus Christ is the same, yesterday, today and forever.  Therefore; Father, we expect You to display Your glory in the lives of our ailing/sick family members who are in need of healing and deliverance.  With You, nothing is impossible!  We expect diseases to be dissolved, broken relationships to be mended, and those who are held captive in their minds and souls to be set free.  As we pray for them, we confess that Your healing power will operate through us.  In Jesus’ Name, we declare healing for (list the names of your ailing/sick family members who are in need of healing; encourage them to pray scriptures of healing located here)

 

Holy Spirit, as believers, please help us to be bolder about praying for our family members.  Help our family members who are in need of healing to trust in You with all of their hearts and not depend on their own understanding.  Holy Spirit, please open the eyes of their understanding so that they will understand the confident hope given to those Christ has called.  Remind our family members to look to You for help, strength, and power. Father, cause Your healing power to be experienced throughout our families, church and community.

 

Merciful Father, forgive our family members who have doubted Your Word and Your works.  Forgive them for acting Godly, but denying Your power to perform healings, signs and wonders in their lives and in the lives of others.  Lord, please forgive them and restore to them the joy of Your salvation.  Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed).  Holy Spirit, remind us all of those we need to forgive and please help us 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.

 

Lord, You are the Almighty!  Only You can open the eyes of the blind and unplug the ears of the deaf.  You cause the lame to leap like deer and those who cannot speak to sing for joy. You cause springs to gush forth in the wilderness and streams to water the wasteland.   You cause the parched ground to become a pool and springs of water to satisfy the thirsty land. Great and awesome is Your Name.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Before you go, can we pray for you?
