Do Not Fear We Have the Authority – Prayer

Hello community,

I am a firm believer in a God that is greater than I could ever be. I share prayers on this blog because I believe that it is crucial for you and I to bring God in the mist of our parenting techniques. Why, because we don’t have all of the answers, and surprisingly letting our hands go at times brings the greatest clarity and even comfort.

So, as you read the following prayer, let go of the stress and allow God to intervene and fill in the gaps of what’s missing in your day, your energy, and even your parenting ability.

Do Not Fear We Have the Authority: Recite the follow scripture:

“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12 KJV.

Amen

Let the Glory of the Lord Arise- Prayer

Hello community,

I am a firm believer in a God that is greater than I could ever be. I share prayers on this blog because I believe that it is crucial for you and I to bring God in the mist of our parenting techniques. Why, because we don’t know all of the answers, and surprisingly letting our hands go at times brings the greatest clarity and even comfort. So, as you read the following prayer, let go of the stress and allow God to intervene and fill in the gaps of what’s missing in your day, your energy, and even your parenting ability.

Heavenly Father,

I ask that You let the Glory of the Lord rise upon me, according to Isaiah 60 verse 2. I ask You Lord to let Your Glory be seen on me throughout this day and to always show the mind of You Lord today and every day.

Heavenly Father I ask that when anyone looks upon me this day, they will see you Lord in and around me. Let every action that I do today proclaim you Lord in every way. In Jesus name we pray.

Amen

Prayer to Know God’s Divine Purpose For Your Life

Dear Lord,

help me, oh Gracious Father to not be caught up in religion, but to be caught up in spirit; Your Holy Spirit that I might be more effectual in my prayers and be obedient to You (Jeremiah 1:5).

I want to serve Your Divine purpose, Lord; and do what is good and right in Your sight. Allow me, Dear Lord, to live in Your Light and the Love that You have for me. Show me how to be helpful to Your Kingdom.

Show me how to live a life of constant praise to You. Jeremiah 29:11. Bless Jesus Christ’s Holy Name.

Amen!

Letting Go of Resentment & Bitterness Prayer

Heavenly Father,

I come to You now in the Name of my Lord and Savior Christ Jesus. Heavenly Father, life seems so unjust, so unfair. The pain of rejection is almost more than I can bear. My past relationships have ended in strife, anger, rejection, resentment, and bitterness.

Father, help me to let go of all bitterness and resentment. You are the One Who binds up and heals the brokenhearted. I receive Your anointing that breaks and destroys every yoke of bondage.

I receive emotional healing by faith according to Your Word, Isaiah 53:5, “and with His stripes we are healed”. I thank You for giving me the grace to stand firm until this process is complete.

I acknowledge and I thank You for my wise Counselor, the Holy Spirit! Thank You for helping me work out my salvation with fear and trembling, for it is You, Father, Who works in me to do Your will and to act according to Your good purpose. In the Name of Jesus, I choose to forgive those who have wronged me.

I choose to live a life of forgiveness because You have forgiven me. With the help of the Holy Spirit, I get rid of` all resentments, bitterness, rage, anger, brawling, and slander, along with every form of malice. I desire to be kind and passionate to others, forgiving them, just as through Christ, You forgave me. With the help of the Holy Spirit, I make every effort to live in peace with all men and to be holy, for I know that without holiness, no one will see You.

I chose to receive and to not miss Your grace and that no roots of resentment or bitterness grow up within me to cause trouble. I will watch and pray that I will not enter into temptation or cause others to stumble.

Thank You, Heavenly Father, that You watch over Your Word to perform it and that whom the Son has set free is free indeed. I declare that I have overcome resentment and bitterness by the Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the word of my testimony.

Amen

Thank you Prayer Book for this incredible prayer!

Gods Promise to Bless Me- Prayer

As I give, it is given unto me, good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over. Luke 6:38.

My God makes all grace abound toward me in every favor and earthly blessing, so that I have all sufficiency for all things and I abound to every good work. 2 Corinthians 9:8. I am blessed in the city, blessed in the field, blessed coming in, and blessed going out, my laying down, my rising up.

I am blessed in my finances, in my health, and in my relationships; they all flourish in the Lord. The blessings of the Lord overtake me in all areas of my life and I receive them. Deut 28:1-14. I am like a tree planted by rivers of water. I bring forth fruit in my season, my leaf shall not wither, and whatever I do will prosper if it is done in accordance to God’s will for your life. Psalms 1:3.

The blessings of the Lord makes you truly rich, and He adds no sorrow with it. Proverbs 10:22. The Lord has opened unto me His good treasure and blessed the work of my hands. He has commanded the blessing upon me in my storehouse and all that I undertake. Deuteronomy 28:8 and 12. God delights in my prosperity. Deuteronomy 8:18, 11:12 God has given me all things that pertain to life and godliness, and I am well able to possess all that God has provided for me. Numbers 13:30, 2 Peter 1:3-4.

I delight myself in the Lord, and He gives me the desires of my heart. Psalms 37:4. The Lord rebukes the devourer for my sake, and no weapon that is formed against me will prosper. By my faith in the Lord Jesus Christ I declare that all obstacles and hindrances to my prosperity are now dissolved, Isaiah 54:17. The Lord is my shepherd, and I do not want. Jesus came that I might have life and have it more abundantly. Psalms 23:1; John 10:10.

Amen

Thank you, Prayer book, for your scripturally based prayers.

Daily Confession of Faith

In Christ I am anointed and a powerful person of God.
I am a joint-heir with Jesus and more than a conqueror.
I am a doer of the Word of God and a channel for His blessings.
If God be for me, who can be against me?
I am blessed coming in and I am blessed
Going out. My enemies are fleeing before me. God has commanded
His blessing on my storehouses. He has opened His
Good treasures and I shall lend and not borrow.
I am the head and not the tail.
He has given me power to make wealth.
I dwell in the secret place I have
His protection and provision. God is my refuge, my fortress
I am not afraid of the snare of the fowler. No
Evil shall befall me and no plague shall come nigh
My dwelling. God has given his angels
Charge over me and they are bearing me up in their hands lest
I dash my foot against a stone, as declared in Psalms 91.
I Peter 2:9 establishes I am a chosen generation,
A royal priesthood, a holy nation.
I am a peculiar person called out of darkness
Into His marvelous light.
I Peter 2:24 states, I have been healed by the stripes of Jesus.
Cancer, sugar diabetes, heart disease, sickness,
Afflictions, infections, or any other disease cannot enter my body.
I am without spot or blemish,
An intercessor, the righteousness of God, saved, and washed in the
Blood of Jesus.
“No weapon formed against me shall prosper, and every tongue
Which rises against me in judgment You shall condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their
Righteousness is from Me,” Says the LORD.
I am saved from wrath by Him and justified
by the Blood of the Lamb.
Lord I pray that those may prosper that love Jerusalem and that peace will
be within them and prosperity in their houses according to Psalms 122:6-9.
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah!

Faith and Fire

I am the cup – this is a poem I wrote during this time that I am labeling “a spiritual rollercoaster.” A time where faith has to stand the fire, and hope has to lead the trail from your heart to your mind. A common mis conception in Christianity is that we are always hopeful or always happy even in the face of opposition. But the truth is that even with God there are times of pain and anguish. During those times God requires our honesty, so that He can intern exchange our hurt for healing. But it all starts with the truth. Enjoy.

Isaiah 61

1)The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, [1]

2)to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn,

3) and provide for those who grieve in Zion– to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor.

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

I am your cup

Empty and breakable

Desiring to be held by your Spirit 

And sipped by the lips of peace

But times are changing, and I am

empty

Desolate…

left

Waiting

For a want , desire, use

I am in every home, every shelf

Waiting to be place in the hand of inspiration

To serve is my purpose

To be whole is my calling

Lift me

Fill me

Wash me

Use me

I am your cup

Fighting an ‘invisible epidemic’ during Autoimmune Disease Awareness Month

Faced with an increasing incidence and prevalence of autoimmune disease in the United States —approximately 23.5 million Americans are affected across the country, according to the NIH — Bonnie Feldman, MBA, DDS, says it is time to acknowledge what she calls “an invisible epidemic.”

“Looking at the bigger picture of all autoimmune diseases together, not only do we have increasing incidence and prevalence that everyone agrees is happening, but we might even say we have an unacknowledged public health crisis,” Feldman, who is founder and CEO of Your Autoimmunity Connection, a consultant and patient advocacy group focused on autoimmune disease, told Healio Rheumatology. “Unlike a disease like cancer, in which the collected data is aggregated, the data around autoimmune disease is still collected individually by each disease.”

She added: “Although there are a hundred different kinds — some rare, some more common — by not collecting data and looking at the bigger picture, we are missing this invisible epidemic of autoimmune disease.”

 In recognition of March as national Autoimmune Disease Awareness Month, Feldman, joined by Chase Spurlock, PhD, founder and CEO of iQuity, a data analytics company seeking to improve the speed and accuracy of autoimmune diagnoses, each stressed the importance of early recognition.

According to Spurlock, nonspecific symptoms and tests can sometimes cause providers to be cautious of misdiagnosing a patient, leading them to wait. Recognizing these diseases early enough so that the treatment has long-term benefit is key, he said.

“Autoimmune diseases’ numbers are right up there with heart disease, diabetes and cancer,” Spurlock told Healio Rheumatology. “What we find is that patients often struggle to receive a diagnosis of autoimmune disease. It can take years because often, the symptoms can be nonspecific, and it can be very challenging to say whether or not a patient definitively has an autoimmune disease.”

This lost time can amount to a “long, costly and often frustrating journey” for patients, Spurlock added. In addition, in the event of a misdiagnosis, patients can be subjected to unnecessary treatments and costs.

“It is important to realize that although these diseases are, in many cases, incurable, they are treatable, and the best outcomes are actually the result of early recognition of the disease and early treatment,” he said. “Being able to quickly rule in or rule out certain diseases early is key, so new technologies and new tests that can come into the market and help physicians reach these answers faster can actually lead to better long-term outcomes.” – by Jason Laday
