REFORMATION PRAYER – Proverbs 3:31-35, Psalm 9:11-20, Daniel 6:10-end
Do not envy the oppressor,
And choose none of his ways;
For the perverse person is an abomination to the LORD,
But His secret counsel is with the upright.
The curse of the LORD is on the house of the wicked,
But He blesses the home of the unjust.
Surely, He scorns the scornful,
But gives grace to the humble.
The wise shall inherit glory,
But shame shall be the legacy of fools.
Sing praises to the LORD, which dwelleth in Zion: declare among the people his doings.
When he maketh inquisition for blood, he remembereth them: he forgetteth not the cry of the humble.
Have mercy upon me, O LORD; consider my trouble which I suffer of them that hate me, thou that liftest me up from the gates of death;
That I may shew forth all thy praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion: I will rejoice in thy salvation.
The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made: in the net which they hid is their own foot taken.
The LORD is known by the judgment which he executeth; the wicked is snared I the work of his own hands. Higgaion [a meditation to be put to intense music] Selah [this is also a musical term telling the doer of this word to suspend the note and leave a pause to meditate on what was spoken]
The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.
For the needy shall not always be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish forever.
Arise, O LORD; let not man prevail: let the heathen be judged in thy sight.
Put them in fear, O LORD: that the nations may know themselves to be but men. SELAH.
Daniel 6: 10-end
Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went home. And in his upper room, with his windows open toward Jerusalem, he knelt down on his knees three times that day, and prayed and gave thanks before his God, as was his custom since early days.
Prophetess Brenda said, “God does not want us to lose our focus and be distracted. That word means to be drawn away in another direction; to divert; confuse or bewilder.” The enemy is sending his laborers into our city and into our midst to distract, get us sidetracked or take a diversion. Remember, Daniel’s saving grace was that he went immediately into prayer when the diversion came, and he focused on “that which was his custom.”
The battles we are facing now are in the spirit realm and not in the natural. Presently in the world there are really no easy places to minister for apostolic people. Everywhere we go we are at war because of the spirit realm, however this war is why we are alive. The anointing breaks the yoke of bondage. Isaiah 10:27 says: It shall come to pass in that day that his burden will be taken away from your shoulder, and his yoke from your neck, and the yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing oil. The enemy does not want to give up easily, but the anointing on our lives breaks his bondage from our necks.
Dan 6:14-And the king, when he heard these words, was greatly displeased with himself, and set his heart on Daniel to deliver him; and he labored till the going down of the sun to deliver him.
Even those who are not walking with God will be troubled over the righteous and their cause. Whenever we as the church function according to God’s plan, governments and other authorities come to our aid and advance the cause of Christ. Christians wonder how to get God to move for them in different circumstances. Pray and obey His laws and He will move heaven and earth for you! The apostolic is to set in motion what brings deliverance to the masses. Matt 5:44-45 says:
But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. Daniel was not delivered for his
own sake, but for the sake of the nation and his own people within the nation. Because of his stand, everyone was freed to worship the Most High. We must do the same in America.
Dan 6:18- Now the king went to his palace and spent the night fasting; and no musicians were brought before him. Also his sleep went from him. God troubles the wicked in their rest when His children or His Kingdom is being beset un-righteously. We should be comforted that all we are going through is not for nothing. We are making a difference.
God will even trouble the heathen on your behalf. That takes in your job, business dealings, church heathen (especially church heathen), school; every system of men.
The king spoke, saying to Daniel, “Daniel, servant of the living God, has your God, whom you serve continually, been able to deliver you from the lions?” Then Daniel said to the king, “O king, live forever! My God sent His angel and shut the lions’ mouths, so that they have not hurt me, because I was found innocent before Him; and also, O king, I have done no wrong before you.”
Society offers us a lion’s den on a regular basis. God filled the lions of Daniel’s den with the meat of His presence. It was enough to bring calm to the beasts.
And the king gave the command, and they brought those men who had accused Daniel, and they cast them into the den of lions–them, their children, and their wives; and the lions overpowered them, and broke all their bones in pieces before they ever came to the bottom of the den.
Whenever we do rightly God defends us by destroying the power of our enemy over us.
I make a decree that in every dominion of my kingdom men must tremble and fear before the God of Daniel.
For He is the living God,
And steadfast forever;
His kingdom is the one which shall not be destroyed,
And His dominion shall endure to the end.
Whenever we are victorious, God is glorified and His name is made known among the heathen. Our watchword for this hour is to stay focused. Don’t let anything get us off of the wall. Keep gathering together in God’s house and get your commanding orders from His officials. Listen to the Spirit, and above all, don’t stop praying!Prayer Targets National Prayer Connection 7-16-2020.pdf (37 downloads)
