Praying with Joyful hearts for the Millennials

Reaching the youth and young adults is vital. They are our future and without God, we will continue to have global chaos.

Praying for the millennials

“Bless the LORD, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His Holy Name” (Psalm 103:1 NKJV)! 

Heavenly Father, we bless Your Name with joyful hearts as we pray. Thank You, Lord,  for allowing us to come into Your Presence today with our prayers for the salvation of the unsaved millennials in our families, for our coworkers, for our managers, and for our friends.   May today be the day of salvation for some of these dear ones who I am praying for. 

All souls are Yours, O Lord.  All souls need our Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior, King, and their highest Treasure.  Let Christ be magnified in our hearts. Save many souls, even as we pray.

O Holy Father, forgive our sins.  Cleanse our hearts from all unrighteousness.  Increase our faith, Lord.

Keep us pure.  Keep us happy. Keep us close to Your heart.  Sanctify our thoughts.  Guide each word as…

Power, Authority, The Holy Spirit, and Prayer

Quote

Jude 1-20 IMG_2087

God gave us the power and authority to pray for ourselves and others.

Jude 1:20 reads, build each other up in prayer. It is our responsibility as Christians to cover our friends and family in prayer every day. It is also our responsibility to stand with them in times of need. God created a family to support one another. The family can be blood relatives or extended members of your circle of friends.

God does not discriminate, nor should we. If He discriminated, the Gentiles would not have been adopted into the family, and we would not be given the opportunity to be part of the Christian Faith through adoption. 

How do we become strong? We build ourselves up internally with the Holy Spirit who dwells in us and makes us strong. Our strength then translates into how we perceive and react to the world. Our doctrine of faith is the foundation to build our faith, increase our knowledge, and improve our relationships with others in and out of the faith. Our internal knowledge unleashes how we build up one another.

The scripture continues and teaches us how to pray. It informs us to pray through the Holy Spirit. Praying gives the Holy Spirit the ability to guide our prayers to accomplish the fullness of their intent. The Holy Spirit directs our petitions. The only effective way to pray is in the Spirit. Some believe we must pray in tongues; others believe that it ended when they crucified Christ, ending the Old Testament dispensation. Regardless, for those who pray in tongues, praying in the Holy Spirit bypasses Satan’s listening ears. For those who do not, pray for the intervention of the Holy Spirit in praying to God, the Father. There is an expression that indicates our intent, ‘Prayers go up, and blessings come down.’

Our role of Christians is to abide by God’s Word. Jude 1:20 calls us to build each other up in faith, not to tear them down, demean them, or ostracize them in any way. We are to pray for them in the power of the Holy Spirit.

God Does Not Tempt Us

Quote

James 1:13 speaks for itself. God is ALL TRUTH, therefore He cannot tempt us. We allow ourselves to be tempted/used by the evil one. I know I’ve been tempted.

Tempted and failed:

1) My parents taught me the difference between right and wrong. I attended Sunday School and was taught about temptation, but yet and still I had a friend who stole candy from the corner store every day on the way home from school. He would always try to entice the rest of us to join him. I held out for the longest, we were around nine years old. Finally, I gave in to the temptation. When I arrived home my Dad asked me where I had gotten the candy. He knew I had no money and teachers did not give candy to students for behaving back then. I already felt guilty and thought I was going to jail for stealing. He told me he was taking back me to the store (the owner was his friend) to report that I had stolen candy from him and he would decide my fate. I knew it was wrong. I was tempted and instead if standing in faith (like I did for weeks) I gave in to the devils evil ways and forsook the Word of God, ‘thou shall not steal’. I knew God could not tempt me, it had to be the evil one.

2) It was my first week on the job and we had a three/day weekend. I requested a few extra vacation days but had not yet earned the time off and the request was denied. Friends and I sailed to Catalina. Everyone else had five days vacation time, I had three. I knew I should not have gone, but it was a trip of a lifetime. I was tempted and failed. I took the trip. During the trip, I contacted my boss via Western Union, (this was long before email and cell phones) and told him there was no wind and the engine had broken, sharing that it would take a few days for repairs or according to the weatherman for the wind to pick up. This could have cost me my job, but I was young (this was a long time ago.) I felt guilty throughout the vacation, but by the grace of God, I did not lose my job. Some would have said God tempted them, but I knew it was Satan and took the bait anyway.

Tempted and stood fast:

I worked for a management company that turned out to be unscrupulous. They wanted me to sign over a rather large check to them and threatened to tell the board president to fire me if I didn’t, but if I did they would promote me.

They thought they could persuade me. I knew this was the evil one trying to bind me. I reported the incident to the president and she fired the management company.

Temptation comes in all forms, from taking gifts from donors to cheating on tests and significant others, to major white crimes. God would never tempt us to do things outside of His Will. However, Satan tempts us every day. We know it is him because we can sense it in our spirit. The key is to acknowledge the temptation and walk away from it as fast and we can. I knew it was Satan and walked away.

Fact – God does not tempt. Satan comes to steal, kill and destroy and will use every trick available to do so.

God saves. Satan Kills. God is All Truth. Satan is All lies. God gives life. Satan takes life away. All truth cannot lie. Temptation is not of God. Temptation is of Satan.

I am certain that everyone reading this has temptation experiences, some that we don’t mind sharing and others we will never reveal to another. The ones that are too hurtful or embarrassing to share can be handed over to God. Ask for forgiveness, He will never forsake you.

We cannot fathom the majesty of God’s all-encompassing Creation.

It is Friday and, on The Fifth Day, the Lord brings forth all of the creatures of the skies and seas. For the first time, birds take wing in the open firmament of the heavens, the waters teem with fish, and great whales roam the oceans. “Increase and multiply,” the Lord commands, “fill the waters of the sea, and let the birds be multiplied upon the earth.” (Genesis 1:20–23)

RePost: Spiritual Warfare Decree, by Pure Glory

Quote

F13BDAA1-491D-4B59-9C60-D5830CCEEEAD

This was written in 2014 and is just as relevant today.

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

This day, in Jesus’s miraculous name, I loose the pure powerful witchcraft breaking, law fulfilling, heart transforming love of God, against every spirit of fear, fear of rejection, fear of failure, fear of being hurt again, fear of success, fear of starting your business, fear of writing your business plan or vision down, fear of poverty, fear of wealth, fear of fame, fear of the future, fear of intimacy, fear of marriage, fear of abuse or being abused again, fear of the past, fear of the present, fear of authority, fear of church, fear of relationship, fear of truth, fear of oneself, fear of abandonment, fear of not having enough, fear of the unknown, fear of being alone, and all the such like. I command fear to rot and dry up in your life and cleanse all the lesser demons out with it.

We speak division in the camp of the enemy. Your destiny is sealed in the blood of the Lamb. We take authority over all scanner spirits, gossiping spirits, run and tell spirits, and spiritual spies, spiritual eyes, and spiritual bugs, in Jesus name.

This week, your enemies will be exposed and so your true friends will be recognized, no more spirit of disguise or waiting for your demise. You have been elevated to SEE what you couldn’t see before.

We negate, and cut off every witchcraft attachment. The assignments of the enemy have just been canceled and broken off your life. We speak blindness, deafness, traitors in the camp of the enemy, concerning your life and conversations today. I speak that the trap planned against You, blows up in their face. Every plot, sabotage, death, and sudden destruction, and scheme of the enemy is SHUT DOWN, NOW. The traps they set for you, they will fall into themselves. I blow a freezing frost, upon all activity not of The Lord, about you. I loose giant warring angels to do battle against all the demonic activity, about you today!

I cancel the prayers and prophecies that are ungodly and not of The Lord concerning you. We destroy every plan and purpose of the enemy against you and we reestablish the plan and purpose of Yahweh for your life. Receive heaven’s abundance, receive heaven’s abundance, receive heaven’s abundance. You are overflowing with the riches of his glory. You are saturated and satiated in the wonders of his love, the warmth of his embrace, and the joy of his countenance.

We are fulfilling our dreams and receiving our inheritance and harvesting our crops. We will not be robbed, bamboozled, or hoodwinked by the enemy. We will walk in truth, love, and not deceived or self-deceived. Everything in the dark, we expose to the Light of Christ. Every hidden trap or wicked device, we crush and destroy, by the voice and sword of The Lord.

Satan, the blood of Jesus is against you! I release the judgment of God against every spirit of death and destruction, playing games with the mind, mind controlling spirits, the spirit of delay, and the spirit of denial and declare everything and everyone ordained for you, is coming to you now, in this hour, this season, now!

Everything evil being sent your way, God turns it into a blessing. I loose the spirit of breakthrough that you would break through every wall and every barrier and every unforeseen barrier, in the power of Christ. The breaker comes up before them: they have broken up, and have passed through the gate, and are gone out by it: and their king shall pass before them, and the Lord on the head of them. (Micah 2:13)

We decree, the gates are open over your life, your business, your ministry, your husband, your wife, your children, and your career. The floodgates of heaven are released over your life. You have a greater abundance of power and life, today because you have Heaven’s provision, prosperity, protection, and providence. Plunge into the new day of release, thrust into the truth and freedom of what Heaven says about you, and divine into the realm of your impossibilities becoming realities.
