A Message from Pastor Carl Taylor

Lady Regina and I wish all of you a Happy New Year. I pray this year brings you prosperity, health and increase. Thank you for joining us in this time of fasting and prayer as we strive to complete God's assignment for our lives. During this time of our government being shutdown, gentrification, and the struggle to raise and support families we need a Divine Word from the Lord.

Hebrews 11: 1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 2 For by it the elders obtained a good report. 3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

We must never forget that this life is a faith walk! In this faith walk we must hear what God is saying to us and move according to His instructions to fulfill our place in destiny. I believe that in this time we have a tremendous opportunity to spread the Gospel helping people to move beyond limitations and achieve greatness according to God. During this time of fasting and prayer, lets pray for those that are facing desperate times due to the lack of food and resources in America and throughout the world. We have an awesome opportunity and a mandate from Christ to show love abroad ministering to his people.

As we start this year I challenge you to write out the things that you desire of the Lord. The purpose of this request is to have a clear understanding of the things that you want the Lord to fulfill in 2019. Some individuals and families may petition the Lord to restore their health, mend relationships and resurrect their finances. I encourage everyone to embrace this season by honoring God through the Daniel 21-Day Fast.

We are not alone, many families are facing challenging times and are seeking Devine instructions from God. Through corporate Prayer and Fasting, we will see God move on our behalf and witness Him carrying us through the challenges that we face. As we faithfully venture deeper into our Fast, day by day we move closer into intimate communion with God which we may not fully experience otherwise.

Our focus is not to highlight deprivation, but dedication and consecration to becoming sensitive to God and the Spirit realm. Through fasting, we dedicate and submit our wills to God and experience breakthroughs, including freedom from bondage, sin, restoration and healing in relationships, financial breakthroughs, spiritual growth and renewal, supernatural healing, and so much more!

As you Fast, it is critical that you are praying and studying the Bible as well. Fasting intensifies your prayers, and prayer and studying God’s Word girds you with spiritual strength and faithfulness as you Fast. As your Spirit man is more sensitive to God’s voice, what is it that you are seeking to hear from Him? What do you need guidance on? Ask for clarity in understanding what is the next move that you need to make regarding your purpose and your vision?

Mt Zion Family Worship Center International Ministries members, as we corporately enter into these 21 days of Prayer and Fasting, let’s stand on God’s promises. “THE YEAR OF THE LORD.” Expect God to do the impossible, the incredible, and the unexpected…because JESUS IS LORD!

- Pastor Carl Taylor

Why You Should Fast

According to the Bible, there are three responsibilities of every Christian: Give, Pray and Fast. Biblical fasting takes a lot of discipline and strength—strength which you can only receive from God. Your private discipline will bring you the rewards of Heaven, according to Matthew 6. When you give God your first through fasting, prayer, and giving at the beginning of the year, you set the course for the entire year.

What to Expect During Your Time of Fasting

When you Fast, your body detoxifies, eliminating toxins from your system. This can cause mild discomfort such as headaches and irritability during withdrawal from caffeine and sugars. And naturally, you will have hunger pains. Limit your activity and exercise moderately. Take time to rest. Fasting brings about miraculous results. You are following Jesus' example when you Fast. Spend time listening to praise and worship music. Pray as often as you can throughout the day. Get away from the normal distractions as much as possible, and keep your hearts and minds set on seeking the face of God.

Fasting Defined:

When you strategically make space for God in your busy life. Allowing God to direct you in your endeavors.

Stepping into the heart of God and withdrawing from your normal everyday life. Becoming sensitive to the Spirit of God.

During this time you should limit entertainment (television, media, music, and the internet) because it has the ability to contaminate a Fast.

Pulling yourself away from the normality’s of life and spending more time with the spiritual, versus the natural.

Your body talking to God for you.

It is humbling yourself while expressing your hungry heart to God, and it is a time that God will draw nearer to you!

When to Fast

When you are facing a mammoth task that you cannot do by yourself.
Nehemiah fasted while rebuilding the temple.
Examples: moving, launching a new business, starting a new career, the adoption of a child, etc.

When you are facing physical danger.
Esther called a Fast when her people faced persecution.
Examples: facing surgery, preparing for military duty, performing a dangerous job or task, etc.

When you are under attack from the enemy.
II Chronicles 20 – King Jehoshaphat called a Fast when his enemies surrounded him.
Examples:  when you face opposition to fulfilling the promises of God for you and your family.

When you are appalled at society.
Ezra 9, Jonah 3
Examples: widespread abortion, the promotion of the radical homosexual agenda, the spread of immorality through the media, etc.

When you desire for your church to grow and prosper.
Acts 2: 42, 47

When you encounter demonic oppression.
Mark 9:17- 29
Prayer and fasting will cause Satan to tuck his tail and run!

Wrong Motives for Fasting

Fasting should only be done with a pure heart and with biblical purposes and principles. Fasting should NOT be done for the following:

For selfish gain or to manipulate other people.
I Kings 21

Without humility.
Luke 18: 9-14

Hoping to bring harm or death to someone.
Acts 23: 12-22

More Information About Fasting

You have the ability and the power to Fast for someone else. God will honor your fasting and prayers and move in the life of your family and friends.

Don’t Compete! 
This is YOUR Fast, so do not compete with other people or even yourself.  If you mess up, don’t fall into condemnation -- just jump right back in.

The Rewards of Fasting (Isaiah 58:6-14)

Isaiah 58:6-14
Is not this the Fast that I have chosen? To loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke? 7Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh? 8Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy reward.9Then shalt thou call, and the LORD shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity; 10And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noon day: 11And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not. 12And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, the repairer of the breach, the restorer of paths to dwell in. 13If thou turn away thy foot from the Sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the Sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words:  14Then shalt thou delight thyself in the LORD; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.

Loose the bands of wickedness.
Fasting will break you free from everything holding you back.

Undo heavy burdens.
Fasting will “tear-off” or violently remove things that have been pressing you down and making you feel hopeless and helpless.

The oppressed will go free.
Fasting will heal and mend the discouraged, bruised and wounded.  It will set people free who are falling apart, and help them put their life together again.

Break every yoke.
Fasting will break you away from bad habits that are destroying you physically and destroying your Christian walk.

Your light will shine brightly.
Fasting will give you a heart of compassion for those in need. Your hunger will help you personally identify with the hungry, poor and naked.

God’s light will break forth.
During a time of fasting, revelation from God will break forth in your life.  When you don’t know what to do or which way to go, His light will shine on you. He will give you His revelation and there will be darkness no more!
Example: God will give you insight to catapult your business!

Health will spring forth speedily.
Fasting is an internal shower for your body. Fasting is your internal physician.  It is the healthiest way to lose weight and it slows the aging process.  Fasting promotes cleansing, repairing, and healing to your physical body.

Righteousness will go before you.
Consecration through fasting and prayer will cause a shield of protection to rise up and guard you from the front and the back.

Quick answers to prayers.
During your time of prayer and fasting you shall call and He shall answer!

Success will come and shine on your life.
As you consecrate yourself before God, you will be raised up out of obscurity, defeat, and failure to a place of prominence and success. You will shine like the noon-day sun.

God will give you continuous guidance.
As you seek the face of God during the Fast, you will not have to ask other people what to do or figure things out on your own. Your steps will be ordered by the Lord.

You will live from Promise to Promise.
God has promised to meet your needs despite the economic conditions.  He will increase you even in drought and provide a supernatural flow of abundance like a continual stream.

God will use you to turn wastelands into fruitful orchards.
Because you have consecrated yourself through prayer and fasting, God will use you to win souls into the Kingdom. You will be used to go out and win the lost, restore marriages, heal broken families, and rebuild communities.

6 Ways to Supercharge Your Fast

Nehemiah 9: 1-3
Now in the twenty and fourth day of this month the children of Israel were assembled with fasting, and with sackclothes, and earth upon them. And the seed of Israel separated themselves from all strangers, and stood and confessed their sins, and the iniquities of their fathers. And they stood up in their place, and read in the Book of the Law of the LORD their God one fourth part of the day; and another fourth part they confessed, and worshipped the LORD their God.

Gather together with other Believers for special times of prayer.
Use small groups or the buddy system to help you make it through the process.  Get plugged in with all of the activities happening in the ministry during the Fast and with others who are committed to consecrating themselves before God.

Separate yourself from non-believing influences.
Deliberately separate yourself from ungodly influences because your spirit is open during this time.  Limit your time spent on computers, watching television, excessive email, secular music, Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, and other forms of entertainment. THIS IS GOD’S TIME!

Confess your sins.
As you Fast, repent. God will allow you to see yourself and begin to bring up and reveal your actions and attitudes that are not pleasing in His sight and the unrighteousness that is keeping you from being in right standing with God. (I John 1:9)

Spend extra time in God’s Word.
Read the Bible now more than ever. (Commit to reading the entire Bible in one year.)

Confess the Word.
Speak the Word of God over your family, over your health, and over your finances.

Worship
Listen to CD’s of preaching and teaching of God’s Word. Feed your spirit the Word of God only.  Be passionate about worship during your time of fasting.  Set aside time to praise and worship God and dwell in His presence.

Instructions for the 21 Days of Praying and Fasting

Prayer
We are praying three times a day, each day of the Fast.  We will pray corporately during these times:  6:00AM - 7:00AM, Noon - 1:00PM, and 6:00PM - 7:00PM.

Fasting
We are engaging in the Daniel Fast, which includes eating the following items: only fruits, nuts, vegetables, 100% fruit juices, and water.  We will refrain from all other foods during this time.

Note:
As with any fast, please consult your physician prior to engaging in a change in your diet.  If you are currently on medication or have other health issues, we advise you to use wisdom throughout this Fast.

Jentezen Franklin’s 21 Day Fast (Journal Excerpt)

The Daniel’s Fast - a Twenty-One Day Fast
In those days I, Daniel, was mourning three full weeks.  I ate no pleasant food, no meat or wine came into my mouth, nor did I anoint myself at all, till three whole weeks were fulfilled. - Daniel 10:2-3

Daniel’s Fast is a Fast of only vegetables, fruit, and water.  It includes no bread of any type, no pasta, and no meat.  This will be one of the greatest, healthiest things you will ever do.  Your entire system will be healthier.  But why do people do the twenty-one-day fast?  What result did Daniel get?  After the twenty-one-day fast, Daniel said this:

Suddenly, a hand touched me, which made me tremble on my knees and on the palms of my hands.  And he said to me, “O Daniel, man greatly beloved, understand the words that I speak to you, and stand upright, for I have now been sent to you...Now I have come to make you understand what will happen to your people in the latter days, for the vision refers to many days yet to come.” - Daniel 10:10-11, 14

Just as God had a vision for Daniel, God has a vision for your life, a dream for you.  He has ordered your life from beginning to end—whom you should marry, what you should do, and where you are supposed to go.  He knows your every step—all of it.  God has the vision.  But notice that the twenty-one-day fast is what caused understanding of the vision of Daniel.  Another word for understanding would be focus or clarity.  It brought about the know-how to make the vision happen. This has happened so many times in this ministry.  As we’ve grown from one level to another, through fasting God brought us understanding of how to make the vision we had come to pass.  The vision of seeing your children saved is not a life from hell.  God is not dangling the hope out there just to torment you.  Habakkuk 2:3 says, “For the vision is yet for an appointed time.”  But you don't’ just wait idly for it; you do your part.  And nothing positions you better for a breakthrough than a fast.  God is the God of the breakthrough.  Through a twenty-one-day fast, God will give you understanding of the vision He has given to you.

Preparing for Your Daniel Fast

During the Daniel Fast you will not consume any sugar or sweeteners of any kind, nor will you have any caffeine or artificial chemicals. Many people experience a physical detox during the first few days of the Fast including headaches, fatigue, leg cramps and other typical symptoms. You can reduce these effects by weaning yourself from these foods before the Fast begins and also by drinking at least 1/2 gallon of filtered water each day before, during, and after the fasting period. Any time you have concern about symptoms you may experience, be sure to contact your health professional. Fasting should never be harmful to the body!

FINANCE PRAYER AND CONFESSION
Heavenly Father, in the name of Jesus Christ we give you thanks for your continuing love and support for Your children throughout all the earth. Jesus, You are the head of the church, Your bride, purchased in Your own blood. Your word says that You will build Your church, and the gates of hell will not prevail against it.  Your Word also says that You will give us the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven, and whatever we bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever we loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.

Our Father in Heaven, Satan is trying to hinder the work of the church by robbing the church of its tithes and offerings.  He has deployed demonic forces to strip the Lord’s church of its financial wealth in the earth so that the advancement of the Kingdom of God throughout the earth will be halted.

The spirit of mammon, poverty and pride has invaded the church, spreading false accusations of the financial stewardship of the church; putting fear in the hearts of people to tithe and give to your righteous cause, making them slaves to debt that brings them into financial bondage; robbing them of the blessings You have promised them through Your Word.

Heavenly Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, we the members of
Mt Zion Family Worship Center now bind up the works of Satan, the spirit of mammon, poverty, pride and any other demonic attack against the financial wealth of the Lord’s Church and the ministry of Mt Zion Family Worship Center.

We shall not forget the Lord, our God, for it is He who gives us the power to get wealth that He may establish His covenant which He swore to our fathers as it is this day.  We are therefore crowned with wealth, for Your Word declares, “The earth is the Lord's, and the fullness thereof.”  Heavenly Father, thank You for blessing us with wisdom, knowledge, and understanding, for Your Word declares that through wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established.  And by knowledge shall the chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches.

Heavenly Father we ask that you will forgive us for allowing the spirit of mammon, poverty, and pride to defile our minds and hearts with grief, doubt, selfishness, fear, greed and unbelief that have robbed us and hindered the work of the Kingdom of God.

Heavenly Father, create in us a clean heart, and renew the right spirit in us to bring all the tithes and offerings to You so that there may be abundance of wealth in the church. We now set our hearts to honor the Lord with our possessions, and with the first fruits of all our increase; so our barns will be filled with plenty, and our vats will overflow with new wine.

In the name of Jesus Christ we bind every physical, mental and financial attack that has come against Mt. Zion Family Worship Center.  The Blood of Jesus covers Mt. Zion Family Worship Center and protects it from all demonic assignments and

destruction. Mt. Zion Family Worship Center has an abundance of wealth to feed the nations, fulfill the vision, and carry out The Great Commission.

Heavenly Father, You are JEHOVAH JIREH, the God who provides for His people! All provision comes from you.  You are the one who provides for Your church, and You are our provider; and in the name of Jesus Christ we release the wealth of the Kingdom of God to come upon Mt. Zion Family Worship Center. We say now in the name of Jesus Christ that the monthly income Mt. Zion Family Worship Center is well over $100,000.00.

All members of Mt. Zion Family Worship Center are 100% tithe givers, and bestow offerings liberally and cheerfully.  It is a heart thing with us, for we have put the Lord our God first in everything we set out to accomplish. Therefore, the Lord our God will supply all our needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

We make this prayer and confession in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.  Amen.


AN EXPRESSION OF WORSHIP AND ADORATION
Dear heavenly Father, how excellent is Your name in all the earth.  There is none like You, O Lord; for You are far above all nations, kings, and kingdoms.  You are the God of gods, the King of kings, and the Lord of lords.  You are Alpha and Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.  Before You, O Lord, there was no other, and You shall outlive eternity itself.  You are clothed with beauty, strength, honor, and majesty.

My soul follows hard after You.  Your right hand upholds me.  You satisfy me early with Your mercy, that I may rejoice and be glad all my days.  Early will I seek You; my soul thirsts for You.  My flesh longs for You.

I serve You with gladness, and I come before Your presence with worship, praise, and thanksgiving, for You are my strength and song, and You have become my salvation.

You are my God, and I will prepare You an habitation; my high tower, my refuge, and my Savior.  You are my rock and my fortress.  You are my deliverer; my God and my strength in whom I will trust.  You are my buckler, my shield, and the horn of my salvation.  You alone do great wonders throughout all the earth.  With Your wisdom You made the heavens; and with the power of Your Word You stretched out the earth above the waters.

You are far above all principalities, might's, and dominions; and Your name is far above every name that is named, both in this world, and in that which is to come.

Great is Your faithfulness O Lord.  From the rising of the sun, to the going down of the same, Your name is worthy to be praised.

Let the fruit of my lips give You praise continually, and let the lifting of my hands unto You be as the evening sacrifice; for You are great O Lord, and greatly to be praised.  Your loving kindness is better than life.  My lips shall forever praise You, and I will bless You as long as I live. I will lift up my hands in Your name, for You O Lord are a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter of mine head.

My soul shall be satisfied, and my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips when I remember You upon my bed, and meditate on You in the night watches.  You O Lord have been my help, therefore, in the shadow of Your wings I will rejoice.  My soul longs for You.  My heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.

Cause me to hear Your loving-kindness in the morning; for in You do I trust.  Cause me to know the way wherein I should walk, for I lift up my soul unto Thee.

I will bless You Lord at all times, and Your praises shall continually be upon my lips.  My soul shall make her boast in You.  The humble will hear thereof and be glad.

O TASTE AND SEE THAT THE LORD IS GOOD!  Blessed is the man who trusts in Him.  In Jesus’ name we pray.  Amen.


HEALING AND RESTORATION
Father, I come boldly before Your throne of grace to obtain help in this time of need for healing and restoration to my body.  Your Word declares that You desire above all things that we would prosper and be in health, even as our soul prospers.  Your Word also declares that our bodies are the temple of the living God; as You have said, “I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I shall be their God, and they shall be my people.”

Thank You Father for being the God of promise, and for being the God who brings healing to my mortal body. You have sent Your Word to heal us and deliver us from our destructions.  Jesus was wounded for our transgressions; He was bruised for our iniquities.  The chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and because of His stripes… WE ARE HEALED!

I therefore receive the Word of God which is health to my flesh, and I command every organ, tissue, cell, molecule, and blood vessel to operate the way You created it to operate.  I speak life and divine health to my circulatory system, my nervous system, my digestive system, my immune system, my urinary system, my respiratory system, and all other systems within my being.

I have been made in the image and likeness of God, therefore no sickness or disease shall come nigh my dwelling.  I pull down every stronghold spirit of infirmity that has launched against my body, and I render these, and every other demonic spirit to be helpless, powerless, inoperative, and ineffective against my body, by the authority of the name of Jesus Christ.

I now break, rebuke, and counterattack any spirit of cancer that would attempt to establish itself in my lungs, bones, breast, throat, back, spine, liver, kidneys, pancreas, prostate, ovaries, thyroid, skin, brain, or stomach in the name of Jesus.  I rebuke and cast down all spirits that cause diabetes, high blood pressure, low blood pressure, heart attacks, stroke, kidney failure, asthma, leukemia, blood disease, breathing problems, arthritis, lupus, Alzheimer’s, or insomnia in the name of Jesus.

I loose myself from all illnesses and attacks rooted in fear, rejection, hatred, inheritance, guilt, resentment, pride, negative words, unforgiveness, or low self-esteem; and I command these spirits to GO in the name of Jesus!

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me.  Bless His holy name.  Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits; who forgives all our iniquities; who heals all our diseases; who redeems our lives from destruction; who crowns us with loving-kindness and tender mercies; who satisfies our mouths with good things, so that our youth is renewed like the eagles.

Now Father, I know that Your Word does not return unto You void, but accomplishes that which it is sent forth to do, in the name of Jesus.  I walk by faith and not by sight, nor by my feelings concerning Your promises of healing and restoration to my body; for You are a covenant-keeping God. I therefore take great joy in your promise that though the afflictions of the righteous are many, you will deliver us out of them ALL.

“God is not a man that He should lie; neither the son of man, that He should repent:  hath He said, and shall He not do it?  Or hath He spoken, and shall He not make it good?“
O taste and see that the Lord is good!  Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!   I AM HEALED!  In Jesus’ name.  Amen.

CONFESSION OF PROSPERITY
Father, we come boldly before Your throne of grace, thanking and praising You for Your showers of blessings and prosperity on our lives and the lives of our family members.  According to Your Word, You desire above all things that we would prosper and be in health, even as our souls prosper; therefore, we know that it is Your will for us to prosper in every area of our lives.

Father, Your Word declares that if we would hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord our God, to observe and to do all Your commandments which You have commanded us this day, You would set us on high above all nations of the earth; and all these blessings shall come upon us, and overtake us...

Blessed shall we be in the city, and blessed shall we be in the
fields.  Blessed shall be the fruit of our bodies, and the fruit of all our possessions.  We shall be blessed when we come in, and blessed when we go out. The Lord shall command the blessing upon us in our storehouses, and in all that we set our hands to do; and He shall bless us in the land which the Lord our God gives us.

The Lord shall establish us as a holy people unto Himself, as He has sworn unto us if we would keep the commandments of the Lord our God, and walk in His ways. Your blessings on our lives makes us rich and add no sorrow.  In blessing You will bless us, and in multiplying You will multiply our seed as the stars of heaven, and as the sand which is upon the seashore; and our seed shall possess the gates of their enemies.

Father, as we bring the tithe into the storehouse as You have commanded us in Malachi, Chapter 3, the windows of heaven are opened onto us, and You are pouring out blessings on our lives that we have not room enough to receive.  Even as we give of our time, talents, and money, it will be given back unto us; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over shall men give into our bosom; for it is with the measure we meet that it will be measured back unto us.

We shall not forget the Lord, our God, for it is He who gives us the power to get wealth that He may establish His covenant which He swore to our fathers as it is this day.  We are therefore crowned with wealth, for Your Word declares, “The earth is the Lord's, and the fullness thereof.”  As Abraham's seed and joint heirs with Christ, the wealth of the wicked has been laid up for us therefore, we shall not grow weary in well-doing, for we shall reap our harvest if we do not faint.

We now break all assignments of the enemy against our prosperity in the name of Jesus.  We break all curses of poverty, mammon, lack, debt, and failure, and we rebuke and cast down all spirits of the cankerworm, palmerworm, caterpillar, and locust that would try and eat up our blessings in the name of Jesus. 

Wealth and riches are in our houses and our righteousness shall endure forever because we fear the Lord and delight greatly in Your commandments.

Thank You Father for taking pleasure in prospering us.  We shall meditate on Your Word day and night, and observe to do all that is written therein.  As we seek first Your Kingdom and Your righteousness, all things are added unto us.  The wealth of the wicked has been laid up for us, and whatever we do prospers.  Our barns shall be filled with plenty, and our vats shall overflow with new wine.

Thank you Father for opening doors of prosperity and success unto us that no man can shut; and for closing every door of failure and defeat in our lives, which no man shall be able to reopen.  Thank You for anointing the works of our hands, for You have made all grace abound toward us so that we have all sufficiency in all things, and abound to every good work; and what things so ever we desire when we pray, because we believe that we have received them, we shall have them; and as we continue to delight ourselves in You, You shall continue to give us the desires of our hearts.

O taste and see that the Lord is good! Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!  In Jesus' name we pray.  Amen!

PRAYER FOR MANHATTAN, JUNCTION CITY
AND SURROUNDING COMMUNITIES

Heavenly Father, we come boldly before Your throne of grace thanking You for the marvelous things You are doing in Manhattan, Junction City and the surrounding communities. Jesus has been declared LORD over Manhattan, Junction City and the surrounding areas and all of its inhabitants, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against her.

Father, Your Word declares – “If My people who are called by My name would humble themselves and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and forgive their sins, and heal their land.”  We therefore humble ourselves today Lord and we seek Your face concerning Manhattan, Junction City and the surrounding communities. Thank You Father for healing our communities and delivering them from every assignment of the evil one.

Manhattan, Junction City and the surrounding communities has been declared an oasis; a light for the world, a city that sits on a hill.  The Light of the World is shinning bright in her converting, and changing the hearts, minds, and lives of thousands of souls.  The Holy Spirit is moving in Manhattan, Junction City and the surrounding communities with power and conviction, and people of all ethnicities are being restored to Kingdom living in Christ Jesus.

Father, we now take authority over all ancient and territorial spirits in high places that have held Manhattan, Junction City and the surrounding communities captive through the years, and we uproot every foul spirit of murder, drugs, alcoholism, and sexual perversion.  We break all curses of witchcraft, sorcery, and divination; and we release Junction City from all curses and spirits of racism, abortion, poverty, greed, sickness and disease, and divorce and separation.

In the name of Jesus, we loose confusion against every satanic and demonic conspiracy against Manhattan, Junction City and the surrounding communities, and we command every secret counsel and ungodly strategy, trap and plot against her to be nullified, void, and ineffective in the name of Jesus.  Let those who gather against Manhattan, Junction City and the surrounding communities be scattered, and may the secret counsels of the wicked against her be turned into foolishness.

Father, we break and speak division to every demonic coalition directed against Manhattan, Junction City and the surrounding communities, her inhabitants, her prosperity, her mission, her growth, her deliverance, and her future; and we bind the spirits of Absalon, Jezebel, and Korah from operating any farther.  We pray and loose a hedge of protection around Manhattan, Junction City and the surrounding communities and declare that no weapon formed against her shall be able to prosper, in the name of Jesus.


Now Father, destroy all false worship and satanic alters in Manhattan, Junction City and the surrounding communities, and remove all strange gods and occult practices.  May every high place of wickedness and every ungodly assignment be brought to naught, in the name of Jesus. May You open unto Manhattan, Junction City and the surrounding community the gates of righteousness that she may enter in, and strengthen the bars of her gates that no idols, familiar spirits, or wizards be able to enter in from this day forward.
We quench all ungodly words and accusations ever spoken

against Manhattan, Junction Cityand the surrounding communities and we make a declaration that the angel of the Lord encamps around her, and she shall live and not die, and declare the wonderful works of the Lord.

We pray for the apostolic gatekeepers of Manhattan, Junction City, Ft. Riley, Grandview Plaza, Ogden, Milford, Chapman, Abilene, Salina, Marysville, Wakefield, Council Grove, Wamego, and all other surrounding cities, to arise and take their place in ushering in the presence of God.  They shall rebuke all spirits of Sanballat and Tobiah that would attempt to enter their gates.

The lost in these cities are now free to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ and are repenting of their sins.  The people are being saved, healed, delivered, and set free from the powers of darkness, and filled with the Holy Spirit.  Principalities, powers, rulers of darkness and spiritual wickedness are now cast down and destroyed in Junction City and the surrounding areas by the Blood of Jesus.

Lord, be merciful unto our cities and bless them.  May Your face shine upon her and Your favor rest within her walls.  Let Your glory be declared among the people of Manhattan, Junction City and the surrounding communities and may Your healing waters flow throughout this region; for You have said that if we pray, You would heal the cities and the state.

JESUS IS LORD OVER JUNCTION CITY, KANSAS!
In Jesus’ name we pray.  Amen.

THE TITHE AND OFFERING
Heavenly Father, we come before Your throne of grace thanking You for the blessing of Abraham that has come upon us through Jesus Christ, that we may receive the promise of the Spirit through faith; for Your Word says that if we be Abraham’s seed, then we are heirs according to the promise.

We willingly and joyfully give our tithe and offerings as a token of our love for You and our obedience to Your Word; not grudgingly or of necessity, but with a cheerful heart.  We bring the tithe and offerings into the storehouse as You have commanded us in Malachi, Chapter 3; and according to Your Word, the windows of heaven are opened onto us, and You are pouring out blessings on our lives that we have not room enough to receive.

In blessing You will bless us, and in multiplying You will multiply our seed as the stars of heaven, and as the sand which is upon the seashore; and our seed shall possess the gates of their enemies.  Even as we give of our time, talents, and money, it will be given back unto us; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over shall men give into our bosom; for it is with the measure we meet that it will be measured back unto us.

Father, because of our obedience concerning the tithe and offerings, You will cause all grace to abound toward us, that we, having all sufficiency in all things may abide to every good work.  Your Word says that if we are willing and obedient, we shall eat the good of the land.  Your Word also declares that if we love You, we would keep Your commandments.

Father, we do love You, and we therefore choose to obey Your Word concerning the tithe, for the Prophet Samuel said, “Hath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as in obeying the voice of the Lord?   Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice…” We are not God robbers, nor are we cursed with a curse, because we honor Your Word by bringing our tithe to our local church.

Father, Your Word declares that if we would hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord our God, to observe and to do all Your commandments which You have commanded us this day, You would set us on high above all nations of the earth; and all these blessings shall come upon us, and overtake us...

Blessed shall we be in the city, and blessed shall we be in the fields.  Blessed shall be the fruit of our bodies, and the fruit of all our possessions.  We shall be blessed when we come in, and blessed when we go out.  The Lord shall open unto us His good treasure; the heavens to give the rain unto our land in His season, and to bless all the works of our hands; and we shall lend unto many nations, but shall not borrow.

You shall cause our enemies that rise up against us to be smitten before our faces.  They may come against us one way, but flee from before us seven different ways.  The Lord shall command the blessing upon us in our storehouses, and in all that we set our hands to do; and He shall bless us in the land which the Lord our God gives us.

The Lord shall establish us a holy people unto Himself, as He has sworn unto us if we would keep the commandments of the Lord our God, and walk in His ways.

Thank You Father for being the source of all our increase.
In Jesus’ name we pray.  Amen.

THE NATION AND PEOPLE OF ISRAEL
Heavenly Father, You have instructed us to pray for the peace of Jerusalem.  We therefore lift up the nation of Israel, Your chosen people, and we declare that the Lord will make of you a great nation, and He will bless you.  He shall make your name great, and you shall be a blessing.  He shall bless those who bless you, and He shall curse them who curse you, and in you shall all the families of the earth be blessed.

Father, Your servant David said, “The Lord God of Israel has given rest unto His people, that they may dwell in Jerusalem forever…”  Even as You instructed Moses to speak unto Pharaoh, “Thus says the Lord, Israel is My son, even My firstborn.” Now may they prosper who love you [the Holy City].   May peace be within your walls and prosperity within your palaces.

Lord, You will not cast off nor reject Your people; neither will You abandon Your heritage, for You have regard for the covenant You made with Abraham.  Now Father, remember Your covenant with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

Thank You Father for bringing the people of Israel into unity with one another, and for bringing Your Church (both Jew and Gentile) into oneness.  Thank You for the peace treaties with Israel’s former enemies.  May these treaties be used for good to make way for the good news of the Gospel as they prepare for the coming of their Messiah.

We now intercede for those who have become callously indifferent (blinded, hardened and insensitive) to the Gospel.  We pray that they will not fall to their utter spiritual ruin, but
that the eyes of their understanding be enlightened that they may know their Messiah.  Moreover, You will make a covenant of peace with them, and it shall be an everlasting covenant.

You will place them, and multiply them, and set Your sanctuary in the midst of them forevermore.  Your Word declares, “Afterward shall the children of Israel return and seek the Lord their God, and David their king; and shall fear the Lord and His goodness in the latter days.” Heavenly Father, thank You for making Yourself known to all of Israel.  Thank You for restoring them and having compassion on them.

Thank You for saving them and gathering them from the nations, that they may give thanks to Your holy name.  They will be as though You had not rejected them, for You are the Lord their God, and You will answer them.

Praise be to You Lord, THE GOD OF ISRAEL, from everlasting to everlasting!
In Jesus’ name we pray.  Amen.


THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
Father, You instructed us to pray for those who are in authority so that we may lead quiet and peaceful lives in all godliness and honesty, for this is good and acceptable in Your sight.  We therefore come boldly before Your throne of grace lifting up those who are in federal, state, city, county, military, and civil authority.

We lift up the three branches of government before You Father; the legislative branch, the executive branch, and the judicial branch.  We pray for Congress, the House of Representatives, the Senate, and the Supreme Court.  We pray that the Spirit of the Lord would rest upon them with Godly wisdom and knowledge, and that You help them, and give them solutions to the problems facing this nation.

We pray for conviction in the hearts of our leaders as they make decisions concerning our nation, our people, and our laws; and may their decisions be based on truth, godliness, and what is right and fair.

Father, we lift up the President of the United States, his cabinet, assistants, governors, senators, congressmen, mayors, military leaders, judges, and all those who make decisions concerning the laws in this land.  We pray that You would give them divine guidance, direction, instruction, and counsel concerning the problems and affairs of our cities, our states, our nation, and our government.

We pray that You would cover and blanket our nation with Your hand of safety and protection.  Please guard us, keep us safe, and protect us from every attempt of terrorism and sabotage.

We pray that You would expose, uncover, and reveal all those who commit, promote, or endorse terrorism against this nation.  May You locate their hiding places, root them up, and void out their plans, in the name of Jesus.

Father, in Jesus’ name, we now bind the spirit of fear and panic that would attempt to come upon the people of this nation.  We pray that You would encamp Your angels around the president and his family, and protect them from any attacks.

Father, Your Word says, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.”  On behalf of this nation, we ask that You would forgive us for our disobedience, rebellion, sin, ungodliness, and compro-mise; and for permitting and endorsing abominations in our land which You despise and hate.

Father, we confess that You are still the God of the United States of America, and we ask that You would restore the fear of the Lord back upon this nation, and upon the lives of the people of this nation, as set forth by our founding forefathers.  In Jesus’ name we pray.  Amen.

PRAYER FOR THE HARVEST
Father, in the name of Jesus, we come boldly before Your throne of grace that we may find the boldness, faith and strength we need to be an effective witness and soul winner for the Kingdom of God.  May the light of Jesus Christ shine through us, and through our works, our ways, and our words.

Father, You said that the harvest is ripe, but the laborers (or witnesses) are few.  You also said that You are looking for laborers who would go into the vineyard of the world and compel the lost to come.  We therefore offer and avail ourselves unto You as a witness to send into Your vineyards to help bring in the harvest of souls that are ripe for the Kingdom.

Father, Your Word says that You open doors for us that no man can shut. We pray therefore for doors of opportunity to be opened unto us that we may share the Gospel to the lost.  May doors of opportunity be opened to witness to our families, our friends, our loved ones, our co-workers, our neighbors, and all others we encounter throughout the day.

Father, Your Word declares that You are not slack concerning Your promises, but long-suffering; not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance.  We therefore ask that You would direct us in our witness through the help of Your Holy Spirit who leads and guides us into all truth, and brings all things to our remembrance.

You shall cause the right scriptures, illustrations, and examples to come to us, that we may be ready always to give an answer to everyone who asks us a reason for the hope that is in us -- and may we always study to show ourselves approved unto You Father; workmen who need not be ashamed, for we shall rightly divide the Word of Truth.

As we open our mouths to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ, may You minister through us, and may we be prepared for Your good work.  We pray therefore, for boldness to speak Your Word and testify of Your Son.  May utterance be given unto us that we may open our mouths boldly to share Your Word with the lost, and to make known the mystery of the Gospel.

Father, Your Word declares that You have not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and of a sound mind.  Therefore, by the power and authority of the name of Jesus Christ, we bind and cast down every spirit of fear and intimidation that would attempt to hinder us from being a productive witness for You and Your Kingdom.

Father, Your Word declares that we have not chosen You, but that You have chosen us, and ordained us, that we should go and bring forth fruit, and that our fruit may remain: that whatsoever we shall ask of You in the name of Jesus, You shall do it for us.  For behold, now is the accepted time.  Behold, now is the day of
salvation.

“…And the Lord added to the church daily such that should be saved.”
In Jesus’ name we pray.  Amen.

PRAYER FOR MY WIFE
Father, I come boldly before Your throne of grace to lift up my wife before You in prayer.

I first of all thank You Father for blessing me with a good woman; a woman full of the Holy Ghost and faith.  A woman who loves You with all her heart, soul, strength, and might; a woman who seeks to know You more and more each day; a woman rooted and grounded in the Kingdom of God, and dedicated to pleasing You in every area of her life - spirit, soul, and body.  She is first of all faithful to You, and then faithful to me and her family.

Father, I proclaim that my wife is a virtuous woman of God who rises early in the morning to seek Your face on behalf of her family.  I pray that you would keep her heart, and allow nothing to come between us or separate her love from You or her family.  Bless her in every of her life Lord, and show her daily how to honor You in her attitude and spirit.

Father, I declare that my wife is a woman of virtue, and that her price is far above rubies.  My heart does safely trust in her, and she shall do me good and not evil all the days of her life.  Strength and honor are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in times to come.  She opens her mouth with wisdom, and in her tongue is the law of kindness.  Her children and I arise up and call her blessed.  She meditates on Your Word day and night and observes to do all that is written therein.  She shall therefore have good success in all she does, for You Lord, shall make her way prosperous.

Help me Father to be a good husband unto my wife.  Help me to comfort her, protect her, encourage her, support her, and respect her.  Help me to always be caring and attentive toward her, and to be the man she needs me to be, in the name of Jesus.  Help me to be sensitive to her concerns and to provide for her as I ought to do.  Enable me to listen to her heart, and to always be courteous, thoughtful, and encouraging toward her.  Help me to protect her and defend her against all harm or insult.  Give me the will and energy to share my heart and thoughts with her, knowing that she always has my best interest at heart, and that she will always give me godly counsel.  Help me to be kind, appreciative, and loving toward her, and to create a home environment that is peaceful, fun, and enjoyable.

Thank You Father for surrounding my wife with godly individuals who are stepping stones to her becoming a better wife, mother, sister, daughter, and servant.  Thank You for helping her to develop strong relationships with other godly women who will provoke her to grow to higher levels in Christ Jesus.  She shall prove all things and hold Fast to that which is good.

Separate my wife from all ungodly influences, pressures, and manipulation; both inside and outside of the church.  I now release the fire of God to burn out all ungodly ties and connections with any former relationships; whether spiritual, mental, emotional, physical, or carnal.  I take authority over her thought life, and I bind all spirits of hurt, rejection, fear, anger, depression, discouragement, oppression, insecurity, and unforgiveness, in the name of Jesus.

Now Father, make me my wife’s help meet and soul mate for life.  Help her to know how much I love her Father.  Help her to know that I am her companion, supporter, defender, lover and friend.  I shall cover her daily with my prayers.  Teach me Father how to take good care of myself and stay attractive to my wife.  Help me to never take her for granted, nor neglect her in any way.  Help me to avail myself to her spiritually, emotionally, and physically. Grow me into a strong, loving, caring, and affectionate man that she can be proud to call her husband.

I shall love my wife as Christ loves the church and gave Himself for it.  I shall dwell with her according to knowledge, giving honor to her, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that our prayers be not hindered.

Father, thank You for the gift I have in my wife.  I shall love her, lead her, support her, encourage her, fulfill her, and enjoy her all the days of my life, and we shall dwell together in love and unity, and live a long, happy, healthy, prosperous, safe, and godly life together.  In Jesus’ name I pray.  Amen.

PRAYER FOR MY HUSBAND
Father, I come boldly before Your throne of grace to lift up my husband before You in prayer.

I first of all thank You Father for blessing me with a good man; a man full of the Holy Ghost and faith.  A man who loves You with all his heart, soul, strength, and might; a man who seeks to know You more and more each day; a man rooted and grounded in the Kingdom of God, and dedicated to pleasing You in every area of his life - spirit, soul, and body.  He is first of all faithful to You, and then faithful to me and his family.

Father, I proclaim that my husband is a godly man of valor who rises early in the morning to seek Your face on behalf of his family.  I pray that you would keep his heart, and allow nothing to come between us or separate his love from You or his family.  Father, give my husband time to know his family, strength to lead his family, and a passion to manage his home.  Bless him in every area of his life Lord, and show him daily how to honor You in his attitude and spirit.

Father, confirm the works of my husband’s hands unto Your purpose.  I declare that he is a wise steward of our finances and all that we possess, remembering that all things are Yours and entrusted to us for Your purposes.  My husband is a just man who walks in his integrity, and his children are blessed after him.  Thank You for protecting him physically, mentally, and spiritually; and for giving him the desire to teach and model a godly lifestyle for his family.  Thank You for daily instructing him and teaching him in the way he should go; and for giving him peace in every circumstance he encounters.  He is a good man who leaves an inheritance to his children, and his children’s children.

Father, I declare that my husband walks in uprightness at all times.  He loves goodness, and hates what is evil.  He guards his heart with all diligence, knowing that out of it flows the very issues of life.  He is swift to hear, slow to speak, and slow to become angry.  He meditates on Your Word day and night and observes to do all that is written therein.  He shall therefore have good success in all he does, for You Lord, shall make his way prosperous.

According to Your Word, a good man obtains favor from the Lord, but a man of wicked devices will be condemned.  In the name of Jesus, I therefore say that my husband has the favor of the Lord upon his life, and goodness and mercy are following him daily.  I cancel any wicked devices conspired against him in the name of Jesus, and I render them inoperative and ineffective.  My husband is blessed when he comes in and blessed when he goes out.  Everything he sets his hands to do shall prosper and succeed, and the good work You have began in him You shall also complete; for the steps of a righteous man are ordered by You, Father.  No weapon that forms against my husband shall be able to prosper, and any tongue that rises up against him in judgment, You, Father shall condemn in the name of Jesus.

Father, thank You for surrounding my husband with godly individuals who are stepping stones to him becoming a better husband, father, brother, son, and servant.  Thank You for helping him to develop strong relationships with other godly men who will provoke him to grow to higher levels in Christ Jesus.  He shall prove all things and hold Fast to that which is good.

Separate my husband from all ungodly influences, pressures, and manipulation; both inside and outside of the church.  I now release the fire of God to burn out all ungodly ties and connections with any former relationships; whether spiritual, mental, emotional, physical, or carnal.  I take authority over his thought life, and I bind all spirits of hurt, rejection, fear, anger, depression, discouragement, oppression, insecurity, and unforgiveness, in the name of Jesus.  I decree that my husband is a man after Your own heart Father—a man who seeks to please You in everything he does.

Now Father, make me my husband’s help meet and soul mate for life.  Help him to know how much I love him.  Help him to know that I am his companion, supporter, defender, lover and friend.  I shall cover him daily with my prayers, and I shall create a peaceful, nonthreatening and enjoyable dwelling place for him to come home to.  Teach me Father how to take good care of myself and stay attractive to my husband.  Help me to never take him for granted, nor neglect him in any way.  Help me to avail myself to him spiritually, emotionally, and physically.  Grow me into a creative woman who is rich in mind, soul, and spirit, and make me the kind of woman he can be proud to call his wife.

Father, thank You for the gift I have in my husband.  I shall love him, support him, respect him, encourage him, fulfill him, and enjoy him all the days of my life, and we shall dwell together in love and unity, and live a long, happy, healthy, prosperous, safe, and godly life together.  In Jesus’ name I pray.  Amen.

PRAYER FOR MY FAMILY MEMBERS
Father, we come boldly before Your throne of grace on behalf of our family members, in the name of Jesus.  Lord we thank You for them, and we lift them up before You in prayer.
Our family members are strong in the Lord and in the power of His might, and they are delivered and set free from the strongholds of this world.  They shall not be conformed to this world, nor the cares of this world, but they are being transformed in their minds and shall be a reflection of the image and likeness of God.  Thank You for the complete salvation of their mind, body, and soul, and for covering them afresh and anew each day with Your blanket of love, grace, mercy and forgiveness.

Father, we commit today to look well to the ways of our household.  We declare that the members of our family will develop discernment, wisdom, responsibility, and a strong conscience for righteousness.  They will not wander into cheating, lying, or mischief, and You will give them insight and spiritual discernment concerning their relationships and activities.  You will protect them from all emotional, physical, and spiritual danger, and You will prepare them to be godly, loving, and faithful adults, friends, parents, and spouses.  Our family members will develop the discipline of prayer and time in Your Word, and You will bring into their lives godly people and friends who will help them grow in godly living.  Thank You Father for keeping them pure and strengthening them against all temptations, in the name of Jesus.

Father, we thank you that our family members will not be victimized in crime, violence, or any plot or trap of the wicked one.  They shall not be caught up in addictions of any kind, including drugs, alcohol, pornography, perversion, or any other substance abuse or addictive habits and behaviors.  Father, separate our family members from all ungodly influences, pressures, and manipulation; both inside and outside of the church.

We pray for Your wisdom and discernment upon them in choosing their friendships, social activities, entertainment, memberships, surroundings, and any other affiliations that can have an influence and impact on their lives.   May they always seek first Your Kingdom and Your righteousness in every venture, opportunity, and endeavor, and may they continually increase in the wisdom, knowledge, and understanding of Your Word, as they continue to walk in the fear of the Lord.

Father, Your Word says that You open doors for us that no man can shut. We pray therefore for doors of opportunity to be opened unto us that we may share the Gospel to our family members who do not know You.  We ask that You would direct us in our witness to them through the help of Your Holy Spirit as He causes the right scriptures, illustrations, experiences, and examples to come to us, that we may be a witness to our family with love, compassion, and integrity.

Help us to provide a moral foundation and emotional health and healing to our family by valuing and caring for them; and help us Father to live godly lives, and set godly examples for them that will be passed down for generations to come.  Teach us to be kind, appreciative, and loving toward each other, and to create a home environment that is peaceful, fun, and enjoyable.  Remind us to be patient, and to take the time to understand each other’s perspectives before we speak.  We shall be swift to hear, slow to speak, and slow to become angry when dealing with our family, and we shall show mercy toward them, as You, Father have shown mercy toward us.

Now Father, in the name of Jesus, we take authority over ever demonic spirit, every principality, and every spirit of wickedness in high places that has tried to influence our family members in any capacity.  We cancel every demonic assignment devised against them, and we pull down every stronghold and deceptive influence or hidden trap that would seek to destroy them.  We bind all spirits of hurt, rejection, fear, anger, depression, discouragement, oppression, insecurity, and unforgiveness, in the name of Jesus.

Satan, we now render you and your mission inoperative, ineffective, and useless concerning our family and their purpose.  We cancel every negative word ever spoken over them or to them, and we nullify any affects of those words on their lives -- present and future.  We break and release them from any generational curses on both sides of the family, and we speak blessings to them and over them, in the name of Jesus.

Thank You Father for Your goodness and mercy that follows our family members all the days of their lives.  They shall prove all things and hold Fast to that which is good, that they may live a long, happy, healthy, prosperous, safe, and godly life, in Christ Jesus.

“AS FOR ME AND MY HOUSE, WE WILL SERVE THE LORD!”
In Jesus’ name we pray.  Amen.

PRAYER FOR SINGLES
Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, I come boldly before Your throne of grace confessing Your Word over my life as a single Christian.

I thank You Father for helping me to live a godly life that is holy, sanctified and set apart for Your use, and prepared for Your good work.  I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live; yet it is not I that live, but it is Christ who lives in and through me; and the life which I now live in the flesh as a single Christian, I live by the faith, power and strength of the Son of God who loves me and gave His life for me.

Lord, You said that You would not leave us alone, but that You would send us the Comforter that He may abide with us forever. I pray therefore, that You would fellowship with me daily through the Comforter of the Holy Spirit as I seek after You; and through Him, may I always find peace, joy and contentment in serving You as a single Christian.

Thank You Father for surrounding me with godly friends and family who will encourage me, and provoke me to stay on the straight and narrow path.  Surround me with people who will be stepping stones in my life to becoming a better me, and a stronger and more confident child of God.  Thank you for separating me from all ungodly influences, pressures, and manipulation, both inside and outside of the church.

By the power and strength of the Holy Spirit, I make a proclamation, THIS DAY, that I am strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might.  I will not be drawn away by idleness, worldliness, carnality, or ungodly situations and relationships; nor will I be enticed by lust or sexual temptations.  I cast down all spirits of loneliness that would attempt to drive me to ungodly friendships, companionships and sexual relationships, in the name of Jesus.

I now release the fire of God to burn out all ungodly soul ties and connections with any former relationships, whether physical, spiritual, emotional, mental, or carnal.  I take authority over my thought life, and I bind all spirits of hurt, rejection, fear, anger, depression, discouragement, bitterness, oppression, loneliness, low self-esteem, and unforgiveness, in the name of Jesus.

Father, I thank You that my life is joyous, exciting, and complete as a single Christian; for You have filled every empty and lonely place in my heart with excitement and fulfillment in serving You and advancing Your Kingdom.  I receive the spirit of holiness in my life to walk upright and pleasing before You.  Thank You for consuming my thoughts with Your Word, Your will, and Your purpose; and may the meditation of my heart be on things that are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, and of a good report.

Now unto Him who is able to keep me from falling, and to present me faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, I thank You.
In Jesus’ name I pray.  Amen.

PRAYER FOR BUSINESSES
Father, we petition You today on behalf of businesses within Mt. Zion Family Worship Center.  Your Word declares, “Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.”  We therefore seek first to advance Your Kingdom, and to obey Your commandments.  Your Word declares that wealth and riches are in our houses and our righteousness shall endure forever because we fear the Lord and delight greatly in Your commandments.  We commit ourselves therefore to honor Your Word by submitting to Your laws and precepts; and because we are Christ’s, we are therefore Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.  We shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water that brings forth fruit in its season.  Our leaves also shall not wither, and whatsoever we do shall prosper, in the name of Jesus.

Father, Your Word declares that if we would roll our works upon the Lord, and commit and trust them wholly to Him, He will cause our thoughts to become agreeable to His will, and so shall our plans be established and succeed.  We therefore roll the works of our businesses upon You Lord, and we seek Your face concerning every detail and course of action.  You shall give us direction, strategies, wisdom, and discernment concerning every area, and our businesses shall be a blessing unto the Kingdom of God.  As we hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord our God, to observe and to do all His commandments which He commands us this day, the Lord our God will set us on high above all nations of the earth.

We commit ourselves to be faithful stewards of the assets, resources, capital, savings, investments, governance, property, services, partners, and staff of our businesses.  As You have instructed us in Your Word Father, we shall remember the Lord our God, for it is You who gives us power to get wealth that You may establish Your covenant which You swore unto our fathers, as it is this day.  Therefore, as business owners, we shall be faithful supporters of the mission and call of Mt Zion Family Worship Center through giving of our time, talents, tithes, and offerings, in carrying out her God-given assignment world-wide.
Thank You Father for anointing the works of our hands as we conduct business, for You have made all grace abound toward us, so that we, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work; and what things so ever we desire when we pray, because we believe that we have received them, we shall have them.  We are therefore crowned with wealth, for the earth is the Lord's, and the fullness thereof.

Father, we commit to bring the tithe of all our increase into Your storehouse as You have commanded us in Malachi, Chapter 3.  Therefore, the windows of Heaven shall be opened onto us, and You shall pour out blessings on our lives that we have not room enough to receive.  In blessing You will bless us, and in multiplying You will multiply our seed as the stars of Heaven, and as the sand which is upon the seashore.  You shall command the blessing upon us in our storehouses, and in all we set our hands to do.

We now break all assignments of the enemy against all businesses within Mt Zion Family Worship Center in the name of Jesus.  We break all curses of poverty, mammon, lack, debt, and failure, and we rebuke and cast down all spirits of the cankerworm, palmerworm, caterpillar, and locust that would try and eat up our blessings in the name of Jesus.  No weapon that forms against our businesses shall be able to prosper, and any tongue that rises up against our businesses, You Father shall condemn, in the name of Jesus.  We shall walk by faith and not by sight, and we shall not despise small beginnings, for with You
