The Prayerful Word - June 4

  • Philippians 4:19 God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.

    Deuteronomy 15:7-8 If there be among you a poor man of one of thy brethren within any of thy gates in thy land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not harden thine heart, nor shut thine hand from thy poor brother: 8 But thou shalt open thine hand wide unto him, and shalt surely lend him sufficient for his need, in that which he wanteth.

    2 Timothy 2:11-12 This is a faithful saying: For if we died with Him, we shall also live with Him. 12 If we endure, we shall also reign with Him. If we deny Him, He also will deny us.

    Revelation 14:12 Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.

    Jeremiah 15:16 Your words were found, and I ate them, and Your word was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart; for I am called by Your name, O Lord God of hosts.

    Deuteronomy 30:19-20 So choose life in order that you may live… 20 by loving the Lord your God, by obeying His voice, and by holding fast to Him.

    May you keep the ways of the Lord and not turn away from His laws or decrees that God may reward you according to the righteousness of Christ which He sees in you. 2 Samuel 22

    May the Lord be your lamp and turn your darkness into light, for the way of God is perfect, the word of the Lord is flawless, and He is a shield for all who take refuge in Him. 2 Samuel 22

    May you receive God's shield of victory as He stoops down to make you great and broaden the path beneath you so that your ankles do not turn, for it is God who arms you with strength and makes your way perfect, enabling you to stand on the heights and training your hands for battle. 2 Samuel 22

    When God directs you against a spiritual power which exalts itself against the authority of God and the beloved of the Lord, may you pursue them and crush them, not turning back till they are destroyed completely and they cannot rise, but fall beneath your feet, beating them fine as dust, then pounding and trampling them like mud in the streets. 2 Samuel 22

    May you rule by God's Spirit over your own heart, and reign in Christ's name over your own spirit, always walking in the fear of God, for then you will be like the light of the morning at sunrise on a cloudless day, and like the brightness after rain that brings life springing up for others and shows the beauty and glory of the Lord, to His praise. 2 Samuel 23

    May you be as ready to please the Lord, and willing to obey your King's least command, as the mighty men of David's army when they broke through the enemy's lines, fending off the attacks as they drew water and brought it back to their lord and king when he mentioned the delight a drink from the well at Bethlehem would bring him. 2 Samuel 23

    Do you rejoice in tales of great valor, My child, and enjoy stories of mighty deeds? Do you imagine yourself accomplishing great acts of courage and winning the acclaim of your captain and troops?
    You have read of King David's mighty men, and how the greatest of them killed 800 of the enemy in one battle as he was strengthened and protected by Me. Do you recall that Peter stood up on the Day of Pentecost and spoke My word boldly before the many scoffers and questioners, and, by the anointing of My Spirit on the hearts of the hearers, 3,000 were liberated from the enemy to believe and be saved?
    My promise to My warriors is that one shall put to flight 1,000 and two shall cause 10,000 to flee. Remember that the enemy comes in as a flood, and the battle can be prolonged and exhausting, but the end is already settled.
    My reminder to My warriors is to trust not in the speed of horses nor in the strength of men nor in the size of armies. Instead, continually fear Me in My awesome majesty, and perpetually hope in My unending loving-kindness, for I am your ever-present help and your strong shield and mighty buckler; My eye is always on those who persistently wait on Me.
    My word to My warriors is, “Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit,” for I have sold the wicked and given up the spiritual principalities to their own lusts and evil desires since their destiny is destruction and their goal is death.
    Therefore, rejoice in Me greatly, My brave one, and exult in Me, for I have clothed you in garments of salvation and wrapped you in a robe of righteousness, as a bride is adorned with her jewels; for though you were formerly darkness, now you are light in Me.
    Walk as a child of the Light, not participating in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead, expose them with My light that shines from you and with My wisdom that dwells within you, that you may do My mighty deeds without keeping the honor to yourself, but make much of Me before men, for My glory shall cover the earth as the waters cover the sea.

    May you find that petty differences and opposing opinions disappear in the light of His presence like moths consumed in a flame when brethren come together in prayer in one place and one accord, for He will shake each “house” that will receive His Spirit. Acts 2

    May you see the Lord always before you and ever beside you, causing your heart to be glad and your tongue to rejoice as your body lives in hope, for you will not be shaken while He makes known to you the paths of life and fills you with joy in His presence. Acts 2

    May you be filled with the Holy Spirit and speak the truth of Christ from the heart of the Father as the Spirit enables you. Acts 2

    May others around you feel perplexed and be amazed at what they see and hear in your company and ask, “What does this mean?” Acts 2

    May you rejoice with those who go to the house of the Lord. Psalm 122

    May you pray for the peace of the city of God for those who love it will be secure, finding peace within its walls and security within its citadels. Psalm 122

    May you find that to live with an humble spirit and humble eyes with lowly people in the presence and blessing of God is better than to share what is stolen among the proud of self and mighty of earth, whom God resists and casts down. Proverbs 16:19

    May you give heed to instruction from God for you will prosper and may you trust in the Lord for you will be blessed. Proverbs 16:20
