A season of prayer: Day 40

Share
A prayer when I need to be still and know that He is God

2 eyes that see
2 ears that hear
2 feet that enable me move around, even though one is a bit swollen, still grateful I can walk unaided!
Lips to speak and apply gloss to
10 fingers and 10 toes
Heart, Lungs, Pancreas all functioning as God intended
I can do my number 1 and 2 by myself
Father, I thank you, you are worthy to be praised. I will praise you from everlasting to everlasting. Thank you for reminding me about these little things that I take so much for granted. You are worthy to be praised.

Father today I pray for the grace to be still and remember that you are God. I am not God, my parents are not God, my employers are not God, my friends are not God, my critics are not God, there is no other God apart from you and because you are God, you have the final say on all that concerns me.

You reminded me about how so easily I am moved by what I hear, what I see around me, if only I could be so as moved with what your word says as well. Your word says that irrespective if where I find myself, you are there with me. In the fire and in the flood, there you are in the midst of us and you are mighty. Teach me O lord to have that quiet rest in you, I yearn for it. Give me the faith that sees the Red Sea in front of me and the Egyptians behind me and yet still remains still, NO SHAKING!

Give me the strength of the widow Elisha encountered, who held her dead son in her hands and could still say IT IS WELL. Halleluyah. Teach me O Lord, show me how to do it for I am so anxious by nature but your word says I should be anxious for nothing and pray about everything. Remind me that while there are times to speak and even to fight there are some times that I just need to stand still for the battle is yours. You will go before me and straighten the crooked paths and cut asunder the bars of iron. Thank you God. My Big Daddy, the One who can fix anything and everything. I give you praise O Lord.

I CHOOSE TO BE STILL, TO STAND FIRM AND SEE THE DELIVERANCE THE LORD WILL BRING MY WAY FOR THE EGYPTIANS I SEE TODAY, I SHALL SEE NO MORE. MY GOD WILL FIGHT FOR ME AND I WILL HOLD MY PEACE. I WILL REJOICE AND BE GLAD FOR HE IS MY COMFORTER, MY WAY MAKER, I SHALL NOT FRET, I SHALL REJOICE, I SHALL NOT BE AFRAID FOR I TRUST IN THE STRENGTH OF MY GOD. A THOUSAND MAY FALL AT MY SIDE, TENS OF THOUSANDS EVEN BUT I SHALL NOT FEAR FOR EVERY MAN REMAINS A LIAR WHERE GOD ALONE IS TRUE. HE HAS A MIGHTY HAND WITH WHICH HE DOES MARVELOUS WORKS. I AM A WALKING WONDER, A MIRACLE ON TWO FEET AND I DECLARE THAT I LIVE THE LIFE HE CREATED FOR ME TO LIVE IN JESUS NAME. TO DO ANYTHING ELSE WOULD BE TO LIVE A LIE. Amen and Amen.

Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him; do not fret when men succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes Psalm 37:7

Moses answered the people, "Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the LORD will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still. Exodus 15:13-14

For thus says the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel:“ In returning and rest you shall be saved; In quietness and confidence shall be your strength" Isaiah 30:15


Heavenly Father, thank you for Favoured Girl, thank you for her life and her destiny as she prepares to celebrate another 365 days of your faithfulness, I give you praise. I ask for a bumper package for her in this new season. Do what you alone can do and may your name be glorified in Jesus name. Amen and Amen. Do show some love on her page.

N.B It was my intention to stop a season of prayer at Day 40, as 40 represents waiting on God but there are still so many prayer points so we'll just keep going by the grace of God as the Spirit leads. It is well. Prayer is a powerful weapon in the lives of believers, may God give us the grace and strength to keep on using it to gain the victorious lives we should have in Jesus name. I hope you have been blessed by it. This is our year of achievement and fulfilling destiny in Jesus name. Amen and Amen.
