To Watch What You Say

August 31, 2006

Father, I thank You for the Holy Spirit who brings all things to my remembrance. I will speak of excellent things; and the opening of my lips shall be for right things. My mouth shall speak truth. May I always remember that he who has knowledge spares his words: and a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit. Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. I choose life that my generations might live unto righteousness. Amen

Walk By Faith

August 30, 2006

Father, in the name of Jesus I thank You for the measure of faith. It is the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave Himself for me. In His name, I live by faith, not by sight. I draw near to the throne of God with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having my heart sprinkled from an evil conscience, and my body washed with pure water. Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Amen

The Stronghold of Accusation

August 29, 2006

Father God, I repent and renounce all accusations I have spoken against You, others and myself. Forgive me for being suspicious rather than discerning, and looking for evil intent rather than believing the best. I repent of and renounce self-pity, inordinate sensitivity, and gossip. Now is come my salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of my God, and the power of His Christ…I am an overcomer by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of my testimony in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Amen

Affirmation of Deliverance

August 28, 2006

Teach me Your way, O Lord; I will walk in Your truth: unite my heart to fear Your name. You, my Lord God, are a sun and shield: You give grace and glory: no good thing will You withhold from them that walk uprightly. I am blessed because I know the joyful sound: I shall walk, O Lord, in the light of Your countenance. In the name of Jesus I do Your commandments that I may have rights to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. Amen.

Sin of Rejection Defeated

August 26, 2006

Father God, I repent of the sin of rejection and renounce this vile enemy of faith. I take responsibility in my generations for this stronghold that has separated me from You, from others and myself. I have judged the facial expressions of others, and rejected them because I feared rejection. I confess that I rejected them before they could reject me. I ask for forgiveness and pray that this curse of rejection be broken, and by the power of the Holy Spirit I cast it out in the name of Jesus. This curse is broken in my family because we are accepted in the Beloved. Amen

Overcoming Rejection

August 25, 2006

Lord Jesus, You are a high priest who is touched with the feeling of my infirmities. You were in all points tempted like I am; yet You were without sin. You were despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief. I hid as it were my face from You; You were despised, and I esteemed You not. Forgive me and cleanse me from all unrighteousness. I am coming boldly unto the throne of grace, that I may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. I thank you for helping me overcome this horrible sense of rejection! Amen

To Walk in God's Wisdom

August 24, 2006

Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore I am going after wisdom: and with all my getting I get understanding. Wisdom will enter my heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to my soul. Teach me to number my days aright, that I may gain a heart of wisdom. My mouth will speak words of wisdom; the utterance from my heart will give understanding. Amen

Honoring God

August 23, 2006

Father, in the name of Jesus, I will not draw back or shrink in fear, for then Your soul would have no delight or pleasure in me. I was bought for a price—purchased with preciousness and paid for, made Your very own. I honor You, LORD, and desire to bring glory to You in my body. I will let my light shine before men that they may see my moral excellence and praiseworthy good deeds, that they will recognize, honor, praise and glorify You, my Father who is in heaven. Amen
