Blessing

Prayer For the 2016 Election: Lynn Donovan

American FlagHoly Father, who is in Heaven, Jesus our Messiah and Holy Spirit who moves in our hearts and in our lives, we come before you in obedience and love. We seek Your perfect wisdom. Lord, we plead like Paul, in Ephesians 1:17 for the Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation to know Your will for our country, for our future leaders and to help us to bring unity to Your Church and to our country.

Lord, You knew before time began whom You would appoint as our 45th president. You ordained that this person might be a tool of Your purposes, judgement and or mercy. We ask now that you would bring that person forward and fill them with Your Holy Spirit. We stand in prayer and faith that this person will be humble and submitted to Your Son, Jesus.

Father, right now we come against the powers of darkness, principalities, and rulers of evil. We stand as Your Children, given gifts and authority to cast down all arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ. And we declare that this land, the United States of America, will be a nation dedicated to God. We pray you move with great power to defeat the powers of darkness. And we will pray the heavens open and place angels on assignment to defeat evil intentions, lies to the public and deceit. In the name of Jesus.

Lord, we seek your favor and turn from wickedness. We repent on behalf of our brothers and sisters in this country that have aligned themselves with selfish and evil motives. We repent for lies that spew forth from our televisions and in the public square. We beg your forgiveness. Lord, now we ask a fresh anointing of the Holy Spirit to sweep across our land and change the atmosphere from division, fear, and hatred and then release love, healing and kinship. Lord, we ask that truth prevail, Your truth. In Jesus holy name.

Father, let your people rise and see their enormous importance to humble themselves and pray this very hour for Your hand of mercy and grace. Let us storm the heavens with petitions that move all of heaven and that defeat hell with finality.

Lord, defeat the devil’s schemes. Remind us to armor up daily and to walk in the Spirit of 2 Timothy 1:7. For you did not give us a spirit of fear but one of power love and sound mind. Grant us a supernatural mind to know exactly how and whom to vote. Lord, let us become warriors, bold and valiant, for Your Kingdom. Let us not shrink back from attacks of evil but rise up and share Your truth with a world that is blind, naked and dying.

Lord, let Your banner over us be love and kindness. You know who our next President will be. We ask that You would bless our county with a humble person who will seek Your face for wisdom as they guide us in the days ahead. Place a covering over this person and family. Place a covering over American and bring about Your perfect plans for this Nation.

We pray all this in the name above all names, Jesus. Christ.


A Specific Prayer For Healing


Hi my friends.

Many of you know that the Lord has been leading me through understanding and practice of Matthew 18:18-19 and the release of blessing. Well in the past several weeks I've been very ill. I've prayed extensively about healing and health.

In my prayer time the Holy Spirit was working to reveal a bodily system that needed healing and to be brought into alignment.

Through my prayer time, the name: Endocrine came to mind. After I Googled this word I discovered that basically this is our hormonal system which regulates just about everything.

During in my prayer time this morning, specifically I heard the Holy Spirit urge me to share my current prayer and ask you to pray it over yourself as well. So let's bless our health this month and specifically our Endocrine system.

Pray: I bless myself with health and I will walk in the health that is mine as a child of God. I bless my Endocrine system to come into complete alignment with the Kingdom. I will walk in health and remain in health. In Jesus name. Thank you Lord for the blessing of health. Hallelujah and AMEN!!!

 

Matthew 18 18 19

If you need prayer for specific healing in your body today, please leave me a comment and I will pray in faith for you. In Jesus name, praying for the complete health and healing of the body of Christ. AMEN


The Classroom of Binding and Loosing

JoyI’m sure learning a bunch about the Power of Blessing. And also about our authority in Christ. And as I was contemplating this interesting season where the Holy Spirit leaving me to learn, this scripture came clearly to mind.

"Truly I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. ­--- Matthew 18:18

Immediately I realized that I’m in the classroom of binding and loosing.

Can I just say--- Whoa!

So for this post I want to share what I’m learning about loosing and also issue a challenge.

About two months ago I began to bless. I’m mostly compelled to bless the atmosphere of heaven into my life and the lives of others. Read this passage with me:

For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit, --- Romans 14:17

The atmosphere is not comprised of earthly and physical (eating and drinking) but the Kingdom of God, which is heaven’s atmosphere, is righteousness, peace and joy through the Holy Spirit.

This particular verse became powerful in my life after having a dream where the Lord placed three keys into my hands. But, alas, that’s a story I must share another day.

But it became clear to me that as image bearers of Christ, we are to bring heaven to earth which is the atmosphere of heaven through righteousness (goodness), peace and joy. But I really didn’t understand how to do this well until recently.

I recently began to bless myself, my family, my home and others I meet with joy. I literally will say these words aloud to myself, to others and I pray them.

“I bless myself with joy, in Jesus name.”  I bless my home with joy, in Jesus name.

I speak this blessing over my children in my prayer time and over the phone. I bless you with joy, in Jesus name. I have also released the blessing of peace, the blessing of favor. I have blessed my health, my spouse at his job. I’ve blessed my friends with joy. I’ve blessed the engine in my car. After all, that car carries around a daughter of the King. And, it needs to run well for many more years. (Yep, college tuition). Jesus, bless my car to run well for years, In Your powerful name.

So here’s the challenge: For the next 30 days, bless yourself. Bless your children. Bless your spouse. Bless your home and anything else you feel like blessing. Bless them with joy and then watch as the power of blessing (loosing) becomes alive through the Holy Spirit in your life.
