A Prayer for the Manifestations of Miracles
Psalm 24, Mark 6:42
Reflections of the Heart:
Miracles are those events, actions or activities that no human can perform of his/her own power. Think of things in your life that only God can change and boldly take those needs to Him. Expect to see His mighty hand move in your life! Our God is the God of miracles!
Heavenly Father, You are our God; we earnestly search for You. Our souls thirst for You; our bodies long for You in this parched and weary land where there is no water. Lord, we have seen You in Your sanctuary and gazed upon Your power and glory. Your unfailing love is better than life itself; how we praise You! We will praise You as long as we live; we will lift up our hands to You in prayer. You are more satisfying than the richest feast and we will praise You with songs of joy. Father, we thank You for manifesting Your mighty miracles throughout the body of Christ. Thank You for healing (name a person whose been healed). We thank You for salvation, which is the greatest miracle of all. Thank You for blessing us with Your presence.
Father, according to Your own will, You ministered with signs and wonders, various miracles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit. Therefore, we expect miracles to manifest during our times of worship. Lord, just as You brought Israel out of the land of Egypt with signs and wonders, with a strong hand and outstretched arm, so we believe that You will manifest Your glory in our lives. Lord Jesus, as You performed so many miracles during Your ministry, we rejoice that You said that we would do greater works than You did because You were going to the Father and were sending the Holy Spirit. We confess that we, the body of Christ, will do what Jesus did and we will move to the “greater things.” Lord, just as You turned water into wine, spoke and healed the ruler’s daughter, touched the casket and the dead man rose, called Lazarus from the dead, cast the demons out of Legion and healed the woman with the issue of blood; so we expect to have personal encounters with You in our public and private lives. In Jesus’ Name, we command financial increase for our lives. We command the sick in our congregation to be made whole. We command the deaf to hear, the mute to speak and the lame to walk. We decree that Your marvelous works will follow us so that people will come to You confessing Jesus Christ, as their Lord and redeemer. We overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimonies, so Father, we thank You that every member of the body of Christ will have a one on one encounter with You so that they will have a testimony of Your power, authority, love, grace, healing and deliverance.
Father, I thank You for performing the following miracles in my personal life. List them and begin to praise God:
Holy Spirit, have Your perfect way in our churches during our worship celebrations, children and youth worship celebrations, bible study classes and ministry meetings so that miracles, signs and wonders can flow freely. Stir up the gift of faith within each pastor, leader, member, ministry volunteer, and visitors throughout the churches to expect great manifestations of Your power, not only during the worship experiences, but every day of their lives. Lord, allow us to have personal and direct access to Your glory so we will proclaim as the Samaritan woman, “Come and see a man who told me everything I ever did!” Please use us to perform Your miracles, signs and wonders. Holy Spirit, empower us so that we are effective witnesses of Jesus Christ.
Father, forgive those people who have doubted Your Word and works, especially our leader(s) in the Gospel. Forgive those for operating in fear and unbelief. Forgive those who have not taken the time to say “thank you” for the miraculous works You have done in their lives. Forgive all of us for not comprehending with all the saints the breadth, length, depth, height, and love of Christ which passes all understanding and knowledge. 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 not to yield to temptation; but deliver us from the evil one.
Lord, You are Holy, Holy, Holy. You are the God who is, who was, and who is to come. You are the Almighty. You are the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. You are the Eternal King, the Unseen One who will never die; You alone are God. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
