Daily Prayer for March 31

March 31, 2008

Jesus is Alive
Even though I knew the Bible stories about Jesus, I did not know Him. I wasn’t even sure that He really cared about my everyday struggles. But the day came when I understood that He died and rose again, even for me. What He’s done for me, He’ll do for you. Jesus is alive! He is not a myth or a fairy tale. He lives; I know He lives! He is my best Friend and my elder Brother. He is the Sun who rose with healing in His wings, my Redeemer.

PRAYER:
Praise God! Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is your sting? O grave, where is your victory? Jesus, I know that my Redeemer lives — you are risen from the dead, and I am risen with you. I set my heart on things above, where you are seated at the right hand of God. Thank you Jesus! I have this assurance that even as you were taken up from among us to heaven you will come back in the same way you left. When you appear I shall be like you — awesome! Hallelujah! Jesus is Lord!

Daily Prayer for March 30

March 30, 2008

Praying for Others
Do you pray for others because you want them to change to make your life easier, or because you want God to be gloified? When you pray for others, pray for them with joy. When you pray for others you are restored to a spiritual tone of heart and mind. Probably few of us have been through as much as Job of the Old Testament. He lost everything, and was attacked physically. After many months he prayed for his friends. The Lord turned his captivity and restored his fortunes; also the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before. Let’s pray for one another.

PRAYER:
In the name of Jesus, I thank God for you—every time I pray. I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. Amen.

Daily Prayer for March 29

March 29, 2008

Free From Fear
The grandmother called to talk about the fear that she lived with. She was so afraid that something dreadful might happen to her husband, children or grandchildren. How could she overcome this torment? We prayed for her family from Psalm 91. You can turn fear out of doors by declaring your faith in God’s Word. Praying aloud will stop the tormenting thoughts. Believe God; He is faithful, and He watches over His word to perform it.

PRAYER:
Father, in the name of Jesus, I thank you for delivering me from the fear of death. You are with me; I will not be afraid. You are my God, and I will not be dismayed. I have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear, but I have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears. Amen.

Daily Prayer for March 28

March 28, 2008

Delivered From the Power of Darkness
If life is passing you by, and you are struggling with self-doubt, feelings of inferiority and insecurity, Jesus is waiting to give you life in all its fullness – the more abundant life – a life of composure and stability. During this Easter season remember Jesus is alive! He turns your gloom to joy, your turmoil to peace, your depression to hope. Jesus gives you a reason to live, shows you the pathway of Life, and He will help you become your true self.

PRAYER:
Father, we thank you for Christ, our Passover lamb, who has been sacrificed to clear us of sin. You have delivered us from the power of darkness and translated us into the Kingdom of the Son of your Love. Therefore we will keep the Festival, not with the yeast of malice and wickedness, but with the bread of sincerity and truth. Amen.

Daily Prayer for March 27

March 26, 2008

Wisdom from Above
Do you live and conduct your everyday going-to-work life with wisdom? The wise and intelligent person does good works with humility [which is the proper attribute] of true wisdom. This wisdom begins with the fear of the Lord, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding (Prov 9:10). This recognition and reverance for the LORD leads the child of God to submission. The wise man not only hears the word, but submits in every circumstance to the word of God. The wise man is a doer of the word, and enjoys life.

PRAYER
Father, in the name of Jesus, I prize Wisdom highly and exalt her; she will bring me to honor because I embrace her. She gives to my head a wreath of gracefulness; a crown of beauty and glory. Length of days is in her right hand, and in her left hand are riches and honor. Jesus has been made unto me Wisdom, Righteousness, Sanctification and Redemption. Hallelujah!

Daily Prayer for March 26

March 26, 2008

Power to Heal
Do you need physical or emotional healing? Renew your mind to God’s Word; He abides in you, in every cell and tissue of your body. Declare that Jesus is Lord over your spirit, soul and body. Let go of all unforgiveness, resentment, anger, and bad feelings toward anyone. God plans to prosper you and not to harm you. He plans to give you hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11). It is God’s will to heal you, and when you pray, believe that He will do what He promised. The prayer of faith will heal the sick!

PRAYER:
Father, thank you for sending your word to heal me and deliver me from all my destructions. Jesus, you are the Word who became flesh and dwelt among us. You bore my griefs (pains) and carried my sorrows (sickness). You were pierced through for my transgressions, crushed for my iniquities, the chastening for my well-being fell upon you, and by your scourging I am healed. Amen.

Daily Prayer for March 7 – Walking In Love

March 7, 2008

Walking in Love
New Testament believers have received a new commandment: love one another, for love springs from God, and he who loves his fellowman (this includes family members) is begotten of God and is coming progressively to know and understand Him (1 John 4:7). Walking in love is part of the transformation process; putting off the old nature (selfishness and self-centeredness) and putting on the new. You do not have the ability to force others to love you, but you have the ability to love others even as the Father loves you.

PRAYER
Father, the love you define in 1 Corinthians 13 is my greatest aim, and I ask also for the special abilities the Holy Spirit gives. I believe on the name of your Son Jesus Christ, and I am able to love others just as I love myself because you first loved me. God, you are love, and when I live in love, I am living with you and you live in me. As I live with Christ, my love grows more perfect and complete. Thank you for loving me, in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Daily Prayer for March 6 – Trusting in God

March 6, 2008

Trusting in God

The little girl wouldn’t jump off the porch unless her daddy was there to catch her. Why? Because she was confident that he would catch her and swing her up in his strong arms. She placed herself in his keeping without fear or misgiving. You may have put this kind of trust in someone who betrayed you and let you down…someone who didn’t catch you or maybe even harmed you. You can forgive those who have mistreated you and persuade your mind that God will never let you down or betray you. He is not a man that He should lie; He is truth and you can rely on His truthfulness. Come before Him with confident trust…He will never fail you or leave you without support.

PRAYER
As the deer pants for water, so I long for you, O God. I thirst for you, the living God. In the name of Jesus, I resist discouragement because I expect you to act! For I know that I shall again have plenty of reason to praise you for all that you will do. You are my help! You are my God! I place my trust in you, and I shall again praise you for your wondrous help; you make me smile again, for you are my God. Amen and Amen.

Daily Prayer for March 5 – Refreshing

March 5, 2008

Refreshing

Do you ever feel out of sorts and wonder what happened to your joy and peace? Often, negative feelings is the signal that your soul needs a checkup. The soul holds onto hurts, self-pity, anger and bad feelings toward others. But, Jesus gave you the power to loose, put off, every thing that would hinder your lovewalk. Your weapons are mighty through God, so take them and cast down every thought that is contrary to His Word. Bind yourself to grace, mercy and the truth that makes you free. The Holy Spirit will release the refreshing to restore your soul.

PRAYER
Heavenly Father, I repent of my thoughts, words and actions that have been unlike you. Cleanse me with the blood of Jesus. Renew and transform me as I daily read and meditate on your Word. Thank you for sending a refreshing to my whole spirit, soul and body as I spend time in your presence. The power of the life-giving Spirit—power that is mine through Christ Jesus has freed me from the vicious circle of sin and death. Today, I am anointed with fresh oil from the Holy Spirit. In the name of Jesus, amen.

Daily Prayer for March 4 – Protection

March 4, 2008

Protection

Jesus gave Himself up to atone for your sins and to save and sancity you, in order to resuce and deliver you from this present wicked age and world order (Gal 1:4). The secret of residing in this protection is walking in love. Keep yourself within the boundaries where the love of God can reach and bless you, and the wicked one cannot get a grip on you. Don’t forget to praise God, the Father, for He inhabits the praises of His people.

PRAYER
Father God, you are my Habitation. You have commanded your angels to guard and keep me in all my ways. I have put on the new man created in Christ Jesus. I renounce resentment, unforgiveness, bitterness, envy and strife. Satan, the father of lies, is a defeated foe. Lord, you have set your love upon me; you are my Protector and my Deliverer. Goodness, Mercy and unfailing Love shall follow me all the days of my life. Hallelujah!
