Prayer points for 2022

 

Gracious is the Lord, and righteous;
our God is merciful.
The Lord preserves the simple;
when I was brought low, he saved me.
Return, O my soul, to your rest;
for the Lord has dealt bountifully with you.

For thou hast delivered my soul from death,
my eyes from tears,
my feet from stumbling (Psalm 116:5-8)

As we get into the New Year 2022, let us put our trust not in any sickness nor in vanity of the world but rather totally trust the Lord God. Let us not fear all vile illnesses, nor fear any evil schemes of the Enemy and repel all fear of the unknown. We trust the Lord Jesus Christ to deliver us from all dangers. And we pray that the Holy Spirit gives us good counsel in the entire year of 2022.

Let’s therefore pray the following prayer points in the name of Jesus for the greater glory of God :

Whoever conceals their sins does not prosper, but the one who confesses and renounces them finds mercy. (Proverbs 28:13) I therefore confess all my sins to you O Lord and repent of each evil thought, word and deed. I plead the blood of Jesus over my past, present and future and surrender all of my life to you O God Almighty.

I love thee, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised, and I am saved from my enemies. (Psalm 18:1-3) O Lord God I you and adore you. Hear me O Lord and save me from all my enemies both known and unknown, for you are indeed the One who is worthy of all of all worship and adoration.
Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. (James 4:7) I submit myself and my family unto the Lord God the Father our my Lord Jesus Christ. And in faith I ask for your protection over us from all evil doers. I prayer that the evil plans of the Enemy are cancelled for our life, in the name of Jesus.

For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God. (1 John 5:4-5) I believe that Jesus Christ is truly the Son of God. I am an overcomer by Jesus for the greater glory of God.

Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King. (Psalm 149:2) I pray that all the lost sheep of Israel turn back to their One True Shepherd in both the Word and the Spirit. Also that all the nations of the earth be delivered from the darkness.

I ask all of the above prayer points in the name of Jesus. Amen.

 

A poor Christmas, A rich Christmas

A poor Christmas where you have faith in God is better than a rich Christmas where you put trust in people.

A poor Christmas as you read the Holy Scriptures is better than a rich Christmas listening to worldly music.

A poor Christmas with believers in Christ Jesus is better than a rich Christmas with those who do not honour Him.

A poor Christmas with Christ is better that a million rich Christmases without Christ.

A poor Christmas where you surrender yourself fully to Jesus Christ is better than a rich Christmas when you are full of yourself.

A poor Christmas where you pray humbly is better than a rich Christmas where you dance proudly.

A poor Christmas when you share bread with the poor is better than a rich Christmas when you eat with the impious.

A poor Christmas where you realize that only Jesus Christ can save you is better than a rich Christmas filled with the vanities of life.

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”  -Matthew 5:3

Casting down imaginations and all that exalts itself against the knowledge of God

O dear believers in Jesus Christ the Son of the Living God, O take heed to the warnings of old. These are the warnings given to us by those who lived with Jesus in his earthly ministry. Learn from it, because you will profit. Observe them, so that your steps are on sold ground.

1Now I Paul myself beseech you by the meekness and gentleness of Christ, who in presence am base among you, but being absent am bold toward you: But I beseech you, that I may not be bold when I am present with that confidence, wherewith I think to be bold against some, which think of us as if we walked according to the flesh. For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ (2 Corinthians 10:1-5)

These vain ideas were present in the times of the early church and even more now. Heresy and blasphemy has increased even more now. In the name of equality and freedom, the very things that enslave the minds of men and women are now being promoted.

Let me make it real to you:

Some people think its okay to keep on sinning continually, till their time of dying arrives and only then repent. However I’d say ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test’ to such people. Do remember ; Everyone who makes a practice of sinning also practices lawlessness; sin is lawlessness. (1 John 3:4)

Then there are those that think that worshiping false gods while claiming to be Christian is fine because the Lord God is too loving to judge them. There are in for a nasty surprise in the afterlife for those who cling to false gods won’t enter heaven. Only in Jesus Christ there is salvation. Remember this ; And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12)

Certain people think of the Lord God as a ever permissive father who will support their evil and selfish deeds, just he loves  them unconditionally, are completely in the wrong. By doing their bad deeds and not repenting for them they themselves have chosen to fall away from the grace of God. Memorize this ; “For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.” (Heb. 6:4-6)

Then then are people who want to practice witchcraft while staying in communion with the Lord God. You can either serve the Lord God or witchcraft. You cannot serve both. Do remember this well ; Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

O dear beloved believer in Jesus Christ, these things mentioned above involve discernment and having an active trust in the Word of God. For the doubting its very difficult, therefore do no live in doubt but in faith and prayer in these times.

17 But you must remember, beloved, the predictions of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ. 18 They said to you, “In the last time there will be scoffers, following their own ungodly passions.” 19 It is these who cause divisions, worldly people, devoid of the Spirit. 20 But you, beloved, building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, 21 keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life. 22 And have mercy on those who doubt; 23 save others by snatching them out of the fire; to others show mercy with fear, hating even the garment stained by the flesh. (Jude 1:17-23)

 

 

A prayer for wisdom

O Lord God, I come before you in humble surrender.
I repent of all my sins including that of following worldly wisdom.
Guide me O good Jesus that I do what is wise and prudent.
By the Holy Spirit lead me in the path that is good.
And warn me whenever there is danger, so that I may escape.
Keep me away from selfishness, hate and malice so I remain sin free.
Give me knowledge, so that I can help those in poverty and need.
Remove from me all folly of heart and mind as you gently lead me.
Teach me to be generous and not be greedy so that I truly live in faith.
I desire that the wisdom you give me is used only for good and not evil.
Bless me with the insight to be just and true to all whom interact with.
And cause me to live a life worthy of the Gospel.
I ask this in your Holy Name. Amen.

O Lord, deliver us from evil

O Lord, deliver us from evil.
When faced with dangers, rescue us.
When terror roams around, defend us.
When temptations arise, hold us.
Deliver us because you are the Good Shepherd.
Deliver us because you care for us.
Deliver us for the sake of your Holy Name.

O Good Jesus, we come to you with full trust in you.
Let us not be put to shame by the Enemy.
Let us not be down with sickness and disease.
Let us not be fearful of the future.
Save us and we will be saved.
Save us because you are the Almighty.
Save us that you be glorified O God most high.

O Lord, hear our prayer and deliver us from all evil. Amen.

Blessings to all on this Good Friday

28 After this, Jesus, knowing that all was now finished, said to fulfill the Scripture), “I thirst.” 29 A jar full of sour wine stood there, so they put a sponge full of the sour wine on a hyssop branch and held it to his mouth. 30 When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, “It is finished,” and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit. (John 19:28-30)

We always carry the death of Jesus in our body

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, to show that the transcendent power belongs to God and not to us. 8 We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; 9 persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; 10 always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies. 11 For while we live we are always being given up to death for Jesus’ sake, so that the life of Jesus may be manifested in our mortal flesh. 12 So death is at work in us, but life in you. (2 Corinthians 4:7-12)

Don’t worry about peace because Jesus is the Prince of Peace!

Why worry about peace? Don’t worry about peace because Jesus is the Prince of Peace.

The world needs peace. The world doesn’t have peace, because it’s not doing the will of God. But you O believer in Christ have received the keys of the Kingdom. Why not use these keys to unlock peace for yourself? Why not ask Jesus the Prince of Peace for peace in your mind and spirit?

“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:6)

[Jesus said:] Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. (John 14:27) 

If you need peace ask of the Lord God in prayer. Ask with faith. But most importantly ask it the right way or it won’t work for you. Many don’t receive this peace because they are not willing to do God’s will. Because they want to remain in sin and still expect a miracle out of the blue. God’s will doesn’t work that way.

You do not have, because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions. (James 4:2-3)

The peace of Christ is neither for vain pursuits nor selfishness. The peace of Christ is not for those who refuse to live a holy life. Sin is a big problem, so give it up all to Jesus for the sake of your own soul. Remember this; “There is no peace,” says the Lord, “for the wicked.” (Isaiah 48:22)

So let me summarize this to you:

Jesus is the Prince of Peace. So ask him for peace in your life as you pray to Jesus.  To receive the peace of God, repent of all sins including unforgiveness and idolatry and selfishness. This way be sure that the grace of God will shine on you!

Be glad that the Savior was born

Be glad that the Savior was born,
He is Lord of each new morn.
He is Jesus Christ the world’s savior,
He is of true humble behaviour.

Be glad that the Savior came,
And abide in His Holy Name.
For Christ saves all who believe,
And does their souls relieve.

Born as a child in a manger,
He loves the lowly and the stranger.
As part of God’s redeeming plan,
The Son of God became man.

This Son fulfilled all of the Law,
And did it all without a single flaw.
Jesus died on the Cross and rose again,
To defeat for us, sin, death, and pain.

Only God can truly fill the heart of man
