March 5: A Prayer of Preparation for the Spring Feasts

Amazing Father, we thank You for preparing us for the Spring Feasts.  Thank You for Passover, the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the Feast of Firstfruits and Pentecost.  Thank You for drawing us into a more intimate relationship with You through these feasts.  We will sing songs of joy to You.  We will sing a new song of praise to You and play skillfully on the harp.  Your Word, Lord, holds true and we can trust everything that You do.  You love whatever is just and good; Your unfailing love fills the earth.  We put our hope in You, Lord.  You are our help and our shield.  In You do our hearts rejoice, for we trust in Your holy Name.  Let Your unfailing love surround us, Lord, for our hope is in You alone.

Holy Father, You loved the world so much that You gave Your only begotten Son as Redeemer, sacrificed on the altar of the cross, freeing all believers from slavery to sin.  As we come together during the springtime of the year, we will prepare ourselves to meet with You to celebrate the Passover, the Festival of Unleavened Bread and the Celebration of the Firstfruits. We will examine ourselves and confess our sins to You, that we may be forgiven. In our homes, we and our families vow to serve You alone. We will carefully examine our homes, just as we examine ourselves, to be certain that there is no unclean thing that would separate us from Your presence. As You have decreed, we will remove all yeast from our homes as we prepare to celebrate the Festival of Unleavened Bread.  At the same time, we will remove all wickedness from our hearts so that we can come before You with clean hands.

List  the things you need to do in preparation for the Spring Feasts:

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Holy Spirit, as we study God’s Word, instruct us in preparing for the Spring Feasts. Bring to our remembrance areas in our lives that need to be transformed in order to be cleansed of sin or idolatry. Help us to develop a greater appreciation for the blessings the Father has given us.  Father, bless our families and enlarge our territories so that we may have even more to bring back into Your Kingdom. Help us to share this wonderful time with our friends and family members and use it as a tool to witness Your love and salvation to the lost.

 

Redeeming Father, forgive us corporately and individually for our sins. Forgive us for holding on to our old ways and for being reluctant to follow Your precepts which are new to us. Forgive those who choose not to celebrate Your festivals or those who are unable or unwilling to bring offerings to You.  Forgive us for being timid and afraid to share the information about Your festivals with our friends, family members and co-workers.  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 King, You created the heavens and stretched them out.  You created the earth and everything in it.  You give breath to everyone, life to everyone who walks the earth.  You alone are the Lord!  You will not give Your glory to anyone else, nor will You share Your praise with carved idols.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

September 30: A Prayer for the Outpouring of the Holy Spirit at the 19th Annual Prayer Explosion Conference

Heavenly Father, we thank You for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit at the 19th Annual Prayer Explosion Conference.  Thank You for redeeming and reconciling us back to You, through Your Son, Jesus Christ.  Thank You for sending Your Holy Spirit to comfort, empower and guide us here on earth.  Holy Spirit, we are thankful to You, for Your manifested presence during the 19th Annual Prayer Explosion Conference. Lord, the earth is Yours, and everything that is in it; the world and all its people belong to You.  You laid the earth’s foundation on the seas and built it on the ocean depths.  You are the King of glory.  You are strong and mighty; You are invincible in battle.  You are an awesome God.

 

Holy Father, we declare that Your Spirit will be poured out upon the 19th Annual Prayer Explosion Conference is a mighty way.  As Your Spirit saturates every speaker, psalmist, musician, conferee, and volunteer; Your sons and daughters will prophesy; Your old men will dream dreams and Your young men will see visions.  We declare that everyone who will attend this conference will be filled, empowered by, and overflowing with Your Spirit.  Your servants, both male and female will abundantly receive Your Spirit in Jesus’ Name.  We confess that as we are all gathered at the conference on one accord, a mighty rushing wind will fill The Kingdom Builders’ Center and everyone will be filled with the Holy Spirit and begin to speak with other tongues as the Spirit gives us utterance.  Father, it is the infilling of the Holy Spirit that empowers us to be witnesses for You in the earth.  We declare that everyone who attends this conference will be set free; for where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty in Jesus’ Name!

 

Loving Father, please instruct us on how to create an atmosphere that is inviting to the Holy Spirit during the conference.  We desire for Your Spirit to hover over us as He hovered over the face of the waters in the beginning of time.  Stretch everyone associated with this conference so that they will expect a mighty move of Your Spirit in their lives.  Remove any preconceived notions that some conferees have been taught in the past concerning the Holy Spirit.  Holy Spirit, we invite You to have Your way during this conference.  Fall fresh upon us!  Help us to lay aside our own agendas and motives so that we can receive a direct impartation of Your power, wisdom, direction, correction, encouragement and love.  Let each person leave this conference walking in the fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.

 

Merciful Father, forgive us for at times grieving Your Spirit.  Forgive us for acts of sinfulness such as: pride, rebellion, disobedience, selfishness, hatred, stealing, lying, homosexuality, adultery, fornication, and idolatry.  Forgive those of us who have not worshipped You, in Spirit and in Truth.  Forgive those of us who speak of the Holy Spirit, but do not allow Him to operate within us.  Forgive those of us who have a form of godliness, but deny Your power.  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.

 

Lord of Heaven’s Armies, Your home reaches up to the heavens, while its foundation is on the earth.  You draw up water from the oceans and pour it down as rain on the land.  The Lord is Your Name!  In the mighty Name of Jesus, Amen.

September 1: A Prayer of Preparation for the Fall Feasts

Our Father, we thank You for demonstrating Your loving-kindness and tender mercies towards us.  Thank You for sending Your Son, Jesus Christ, to redeem us from the power of the evil one.  Thank You for Your appointed times and seasons.  We are thankful for Your presence in our lives. Lord, there is none like You.  You are great and Your Name is full of power.  Who would not fear You, O King of the nations?  That title belongs to You alone.  Among all the wise people of the earth and in all the kingdoms of the world, there is no one like You.

Omniscient Father, we know that there is a season for everything.  There is a time for every purpose under heaven. As the Body of Christ, we make our declaration to celebrate the Fall Feasts and spend time with You.  We declare that the Feast of Trumpets, the Day of Atonement and the Feast of Tabernacles are Your appointed times and we will observe them. By faith, we expect to experience Your love, power, and presence in the New Year.  On the day of the Feast of Trumpets, when the trumpets sound, we will assemble together and respond to the call to honor Your faithfulness.  During the High Holy Days and on the Day of Atonement, we will afflict our souls with prayer and fasting.  We will re-evaluate our lives, repent for our sins, and draw closer to You.  During the Feast of Tabernacles, we will remember that Christ has become our High Priest over all the good things that have come.  He has entered that greater, more perfect Tabernacle in heaven, which was not made by human hands.  Jesus Christ, our big brother, has secured our redemption forever.  Hallel YAH!

 

Holy Spirit, help me to prepare for the Fall Feasts by:

 

 

Holy Spirit, help us to reflect, repent, reconcile, remember, and rejoice.  Cause the mind of Christ to be in us.  Show us how to celebrate our Father God during the Fall Feasts.  What can we do and say to show our love and make You happy?  You continue to bless us over and over.  How can we bless You?  Show us what it is that pleases You.  Please help us to slow down during this month of September to spend quality time with You.  Reveal to us what needs to be changed or improved in our lives.  Help us to mend broken relationships.  Continue to touch our hearts about the Father’s will for our lives.  Cause Your peace to settle into our hearts.  

                  

Today, I will trust the Lord and work to change:

 

 

Compassionate Father, forgive us for all acts of sinfulness including:  idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, homosexuality, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, and revelries.  Forgive us for not always obeying Your Word and spending enough time with You.   Forgive those who do not choose to observe Your appointed Feasts.  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.

 

Lord, You are the only true God.  You are the living God and the everlasting King!  The whole earth trembles at Your anger and the nations cannot stand up to Your wrath.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen
