The Prayerful Word - April 22

  • Psalm 39:7 O Lord, what do I wait for? My hope is in you.

    Proverbs 29:25 Fearing people is a dangerous trap, but trusting the Lord means safety.

    1 Samuel 15:24 Then Saul admitted to Samuel, “Yes, I have sinned. I have disobeyed your instructions and the Lord’s command, for I was afraid of the people and did what they demanded.

    Isaiah 48:17 Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, The Holy One of Israel: 'I am the LORD your God, Who teaches you to profit, Who leads you by the way you should go.'"

    Proverbs 16:20 He who heeds the word wisely will find good, and whoever trusts in the Lord, happy is he.

    John 14:21 He who has My commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves Me; and he who loves Me shall be loved by My Father, and I will love him, and will disclose Myself to him.

    May you fear the Lord and serve Him with all faithfulness, throwing away those “powers” which are not, to which you had previously yielded your heart, for it is the Lord your God Who has brought you out of spiritual darkness and bondage, carrying you and sustaining you in ways you have seen with your own eyes, giving you victories over your carnal nature, the world's system, and the principalities that stand against God Himself, His will, and His beloved ones, for it is God's good pleasure to give you gifts you do not deserve and blessings you have not earned, that He would receive praise from you for His love, and glory from the people around you for His great power and faithfulness to His word and His promises toward you. Joshua 24

    May you be willing to give from your need, when God directs, rather than just from your plenty, as you do. Luke 21

    May you not be influenced by signs in the earth or claims of others or persecution by many, but be prepared to give witness to the Lord before authorities and leaders in the opportunities this will provide. Know that the words and wisdom that God will give you will be more than your adversaries will be able to resist or contradict. Though you will be hated, not a hair will perish and by standing firm and remaining faithful to the Lord, you will gain life. Luke 21

    May you stand up and lift your head when you see signs in the sun, moon and stars, men fainting from terror of the present and apprehension for the future, and nations in anguish and perplexity. Though they are shaken and fearful, you are confident because your redemption is drawing near. Luke 21

    Be strong, My child, be brave. Do not fear the terror by night, for I am with you to shield and defend you.
    Finish the work before you, for I am with you to help and strengthen you. The work I give you is hard, but real, My love. It is not a formula to follow or a process to blindly repeat.
    The work I set before you is unlike any you have done before, and it has great bearing on lives and hearts that I hold dear. Do not treat it as routine or expect it to be done on a schedule.
    Be awake, My worker. Be alert to hear My voice guiding you, for you have not come this way for this purpose before.
    Seek Me for the Life that will make My Word relevant, and for the anointing that will bring down the stronghold that resists your efforts. Pray My Word as never before; quote My promises back to Me in faith, knowing that I will remain faithful to what I have spoken.
    In doing this, I extend My favor and power to move the mountains that the enemy has erected. You will be making straight the way of the Lord for all to follow that I am drawing to Myself. You will draw down My blessings richly on your children and your family.

    May you praise the Lord forever for His great love which He has sworn in His faithfulness to give you, for He remembers how you have been mocked, and has heard the taunts with which your enemies have reproached your every step. Psalm 89

    May the Lord accept and embrace you with His love, affirming His covenant to give of His authority to you, establishing and reinforcing His defenses around you. Your neighbors will exalt the Lord for His faithfulness and your foes will know the fear of the Lord as their weapons are broken in their hands. Psalm 89

    May you walk with the people who have God's wisdom so that you may grow wise also, rather than suffer the harm that a companion of fools will find. Proverbs 13:20

    May you receive the blessings which reward the righteous, and avoid the misfortune which pursues the sinner. Proverbs 13:21
