I Chronicles 29:10-15, Proverbs 16:1-9
Reflections of the Heart:
The Power Center is a monument of God’s greatness and His favor. God always keeps His promises. So, let us continue to declare God’s Word, which is His will for The Power Center.
Magnificent Father, we thank You for The Power Center. Thank You for the employment and business opportunities You have brought into our community through The Power Center. Thank You for using The Power Center to attract businesses, wealth, health and hope to this community. This is Your doing and it is marvelous in our eyes. Lord, You are great and greatly to be praised. You are to be feared above all gods. We exalt You, our God and King, and praise You every day. Each generation will tell its children of Your mighty acts; they will proclaim Your power. Lord, Your works are wonderful. We are grateful that when we, the righteous, cry out, You hear and deliver us out of our troubles.
Lord Jesus, You are the cornerstone upon which The Power Center was constructed. Let it be unto The Power Center according to Your Word. Lord, we expect the double portion for The Power Center. We expect that You will turn and leave Your blessings upon The Power Center staff and its occupants. We declare that You will continue to bless and protect every staff member, entrepreneur and client of The Power Center. As they walk uprightly, Lord, we know that You will withhold no good thing from them. We confess that all Your blessings will come upon them and overtake them, because they will obey Your voice. They are blessed in the city and in the country. We believe that You will command blessings on their storehouses and on the works of their hands. We confess that You will cause the latter rain to come down for The Power Center and its occupants, and You will send them enough business to satisfy their needs. We confess that You will pour out Your Spirit on The Power Center and its occupants and You will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth. We declare peace within the walls of The Power Center and prosperity throughout the entire complex.
Holy Spirit, show me what I can do to be a blessing to The Power Center occupants:
Awesome Father, we ask that You would surround the board of directors, executive director, staff and occupants of The Power Center with Your favor like a shield. We ask that Your Spirit of wisdom, understanding, counsel, and power rest on each of them. Give them the resources to provide programs of economic, emotional, and social empowerment for the Houston community. Fill them with the knowledge of Your will and give them a thirst for Your Word so that they can learn Your ways for practicing business. Holy Spirit, help them to make righteous decisions and operate with justice, practical insight and integrity. We ask that You will continue to bless The Power Center and make its name great so that it will continue to be a blessing to this community. Lord, please open new revenue streams for The Power Center. Holy Spirit, touch the public and private sectors to continue to invest resources into The Power Center. Lord, build a hedge of protection around The Power Center that cannot be penetrated. We ask You to rebuke the spirit of theft and vandalism. Convict those who steal to steal no more and those who seek to do harm to do good.
Forgiving Father, forgive us for taking The Power Center for granted. Forgive the clients and the staff of The Power Center for all acts of sin, including racism, injustice, lying, stealing and mediocrity. Forgive those staff members and occupants for not trusting You to be their provider, protector, and deliverer. 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 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, help us all not to yield to temptation but deliver us from the evil one.
You are the Blessed and Sovereign One. You are the King of kings and Lord of lords. You alone have immortality, dwelling in an unapproachable light, whom no man can see. Yours is the Kingdom, the power and the glory, forever and ever. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
