We love you and humbly come to you as your children. Thank you that we can boldly approach your throne where your river of mercy flows out towards us. Thank you for your grace, love, forgiveness, and compassion.
Father we are in a time globally that has caused such fear, uncertainty, division, anxiety, loss of loved ones, loss of income, loss of hope, loss of physical connection with each other, loss of ability to meet together as the body of Christ. There has been so much opportunity in this isolation to listen to the lies of the enemy that only rob us of our hope, strength, courage, and more.
Today we come before you. We ask that you forgive us where we have been petty, seeking the wrong things, causing division amongst your children, and walking in unforgiveness towards others. Father, you are softening our hearts and asking us to turn our posture towards you, and you alone. Your way is one of love, compassion, forgiveness, generosity, community, worship, healing, encouragement, joy, and peace.
I pray for the global crisis going on with Covid and the effects because of either the disease or decisions made due to it. I pray in the mighty name of Jesus against the plans and schemes of the enemy to cause your creation harm. Father, in Jesus name, I pray that every deceiving and lying spirit be brought into the light, fully exposed, and become completely ineffective. I pray that blinds would be removed from our eyes and that the spirit of wisdom, knowledge, understanding, and revelation would follow your children wherever they go.
I pray that we walk in the boldness, wisdom, confidence, and courage that Joshua, Caleb, Daniel, David, Joseph, Esther, Paul, and more did. That we would not be swayed by circumstances, but instead stand firm on your truth. Looking only to you for guidance, healing, and provision.
Father I lift up our brothers and sisters who have lost loved ones in the middle of all of this and have not been able to be at their bedside or have a normal good bye. Heal their hearts. Encourage them. I pray for those who cannot hold the hands of their loved ones who are in the hospitals or hug their families because of this isolation or distance that does not allow them to cross borders. Encourage them. Restore hope. You created our bodies to need touch and to see each other’s faces. Father, do the supernatural, and be more than enough to make up for that. I pray for a speedy reuniting and ability to embrace each other as you intended for us to do.
I pray for our President, Vice President, judges, governors, physicians, and others in authority. God that they have the boldness, courage, wisdom, and integrity to do what is right and deliver message of hope and peace to the people. I pray that you will bring confusion and chaos to the enemies plans. That those plans will be easily identifiable and dismantled – never to be seen again. I pray that you shut down media that instills fear and lies and instead raise up people in those industries that want to bring truth and encouragement to the people. As David prayed in the Psalms many times, I declare you will shut lying lips.
Father, you say that Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever. So I stand on it boldly today and declare that your Word is truth. That we can rise up and be a modern day Joshua, Daniel, or Jehosaphat. We stand bold and courageous. Unmoved by the enemies schemes but in awe of what you will do on our behalf. As your obedient children, we do not operate in the world’s economy, but instead, we operate in your economy. You are our provider, source, healer, protector.
We thank you that you are a shield around us and that no weapon formed against your people will prosper. We dwell in the shelter of the Most High and find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. Though a thousand fall at our side, though ten thousand are dying around us, these evils will not touch us. We do not fear the terror of the night nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the disease that stalks in the darkness. Your Word says that the Lord is our refuge and we make your Most High our dwelling. No evil will conquer us and no plague will come near our home. For he orders his angels to protect us wherever we go. Thank you Jesus for that.
Father, we ask that you supply all of our needs according to your glorious riches. You say as your children we will not lack what we need. Encourage those who need a source of income. I pray that you will provide above and beyond anything they could ask hope or imagine for. And that the world will look at them and know that the hand of God is on them and takes care of His children. That your supernatural provision will bring people in awe of you and to their knees.
Father, we confess where we have been so divided and at odds with our brothers and sisters in Christ. Forgive us. When we pray united and in agreement, there is power. You said in Genesis at the tower of Babel, when we pray and speak with the same language, there is nothing that can be withheld from us. Though their purpose was to be god, our purpose in our prayer is to bring healing to our world, to your people. May we stand united on your truth and your Word, and be determined to do your will, not our own. May we unite in prayer with one heart and purpose. Yours. May we do a better job looking out for the homeless, hungry, poor, those caught up in bondage or slavery, the oppressed, the downtrodden. May we be obedient to your Word and not our own selfish desires.
Father, I pray for my brothers and sisters in the Lord, that you would remove depression, anxiety, fear, false beliefs, sickness, discouragement, bitterness, and resentment. Replace it with your love, joy, peace, courage, hope, wisdom, healing, protection, creativity, favor, comfort, and new zeal, provision, outrageous generosity, and deep desire and obedience to spend time with you. Speak to us through your Word, in dreams, visions, prophecy. May we hear only your voice as we look to you alone.
I pray you would bring unity, healing, joy, and peace into homes and marriages. I pray against pornography and any other kind of evil pleasure that is flowing into so many homes to captive audiences and I speak that you cut off that source in Jesus name. May we instead diligently teach our children your Word. May we love and honor our spouses as you intended. May we fill our homes with worship music, your Word, your truth. May we be a light in our communities. That people will be drawn to us because of the Hope that is on the inside of us. May they desire what we have and find that you are the only way.
Thank you that you are bringing what’s hiding in the dark into the light. You are the solution. Thank you that we are going to see you do what only God can do. Thank you that you still do miracles today. Thank you that you are encouraging our hearts and drawing us closer to you. Thank you that greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world. Our God is bigger. He is a miracle worker. He is our healer. He is our vindicator. He is our provider. He is our hope. He is our joy. He is our protector. He is our creator and God.
And Father I pray, that those who do not know you, will come to know you as their Lord and Savior. May they come to know the loving Father, healer, protector, and provider that you are.
Just as you rescued your children throughout the Word, we thank you that we will see it again. In Jesus Mighty Name.
