Psalm 121, Psalm 91
Reflections of the Heart:
There is no place like home! God desires for His children to dwell in peaceful and secure homes. So, let us continue to pray for the prosperity, protection and unity of the residents of our communities.
Wonderful Father, we thank You for Your peace and protection for our families during the COVID-19 the pandemic. Thank You for provision that enables our families to love one another, raise children with a Godly foundation and be an example of unity within our communities. We thank You, Lord, for having plans for good and not disaster for us, to give us a future and a hope. Thank You for blessing us with Your perfect peace, as we keep our thoughts fixed on You. We come before You clapping our hands and shouting with joy unto You. Lord Most High, You are awesome! You subdue nations before us and put our enemies under our feet! Father, we thank You for choosing this promised land as an inheritance for our families. We sing praises to You, Lord, and declare that You are the King over all of the earth!
Almighty Father, You are the light and salvation of our families, so we are not afraid. You are our fortress, protecting us from danger so we do not tremble. By faith, we declare that our families live peacefully and safely in our workplaces and homes and that our homes are places of rest. No evil will conquer our families and no harm will come near us because the Lord have ordered His angels to protect us wherever we go. Lord, we expect that You will always put a wall of protection around each of us, our homes and properties, and You will allow us to prosper in everything we do. In the authority given to us by Jesus Christ, we cancel the assignments of the spirits of fear, intimidation, theft, vandalism, death, destruction, discord and perversion from our families, our homes and workplaces. We plead the blood of Jesus over our families and decree that we are vibrant, prosperous and blessed!
I confess the following promises of God upon (list the name of a family member):
Holy Spirit, help us to always remember that the greatest resource of peace and protection is the Lord God Almighty. Incline our hearts to seek Him first and search His Word for wisdom, comfort, refuge and direction. Give us the strength and courage to stand when social media, television, movies, peers and Internet influences, do not represent the Godly values set forth in our homes. Keep us from all temptations including the urge to love this world more than the Lord God or mistreat our parents, siblings and extended family members. Holy Spirit, impress upon our families the importance of finding the right balance between our work and personal lives.
Forgiving Father, forgive our families for all acts of sinfulness, including jealousy, rivalries, dishonesty, injustice, hatred, oppression, greed, idolatry, pride, slander, sexual immorality, selfish ambition, and abuse of any type. Forgive those who choose not to trust in You for all things in all ways. Father, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed). Holy Spirit, remind our families 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 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 our families not to yield to temptation but deliver us from the evil one.
Eternal Lord, You are the blessed and Sovereign One; the King of kings, and the Lord of lords, who alone has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light, whom no man can see. Yours is the Kingdom, the power and the glory forever and ever. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
