Easter Season 22

EASTER SEASON 2022
 
Join us tomorrow at 10:00AM for our Easter Celebration!!
Easter Season is during Spring…and Spring is a time where things are coming to life!  JESUS BEGAN ALL LIFE!  So it is fitting that we celebrate Jesus at the heart of this Season!  MOST of all Jesus’ RESURRECTION!
     1. JESUS died on a criminal’s cross, although He never sinned or did anything wrong!
     2. JESUS willingly allowed Himself to be arrested and crucified. (John 10:17-18) Jesus said in Matthew 26:53 that His Father would have given Him charge over 12 Legions of angels if He had asked!
In the Roman world 1 Legion was 6,000 soldiers. Multiply 1 Legion of 6,000 by 12! Imagine 75,000 Angels storming Golgotha’s hill! It is safe to say that no one would have had a chance! But instead of saying Father wipe them off the face of the earth, Jesus said in Luke 23:34 “Father forgive them for they do not know what they are doing”.
    3.
We believe that Jesus went to the place of the dead (Acts 2:31) and preached to them salvation (1 Peter 4:6). Jesus conquered hell by dying for our sins. He conquered death by Resurrecting, and the grave, by being the first fruits of the Resurrection, so we too could rise again one day (1 Corinthians 15:26; Revelation 1:18; 1 Corinthians 15:20-23). This is why we say that Jesus has the keys of death, hell and the grave! 
    4. Jesus rose from the dead, taking back His life from death and once and for all breaking the power of sin over humanity! (Romans 6:10; 1 Peter 3:18; 1 John 2:2)
 
So we celebrate this season of life because JESUS is the RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE! (John 11:25) 
He is ALIVE!! He deserves all honor and praise!!
 
At Grace Family Fellowship, Easter begins a new season for us as well!  WE are actively working on getting our Ministries back on track after 2 years of a pandemic slowing down everyone. We are also making some changes. One of those will be to begin a monthly Newsletter, instead of a weekly bulletin. 
Our members are free to submit entries to our Newsletter by emailing Our church secretary or if you hand write an article, you can hand that in as well. Our ministry leaders can put monthly announcements and updates in the news letter. There will also be a pastor’s blog. This will be made available in print at church, mailed to our shut-ins and published here on the website.

Revival Night Eric Earhart

Our Revival Night with Eric Earhart was powerful and challenging! Pastor Eric challenged us to re-examine our role as “the Church”. In Matthew 16:18-19 Jesus uses the word “Ecclesia”. Pastor Eric said that this word literally means “public square”.  Jesus could have used many words. “Congregation” or “religious gathering”; but He didn’t, He used a word that speaks to the Church being effective, only if it goes to the “public square”. Pastor Eric shared that God has not called us to withdraw our effectiveness from the world and hide, but to GO INTO all the world… Art, media, businesses, politics…the “public square” to take this message of hope…this Good News…this Power Gospel of Jesus Christ to where the darkness is!  We talked about the “dark ages”, when Christians withdrew from the public and brought their message, their meetings, and their worship, inside buildings, all over America.  We are in ANOTHER “Dark Age” today!  We need God to give us supernatural boldness to take this message to the Public square!  To be the “Ecclesia”…to be the Church…to be Effective!

Thirty-one Days of Prayer – In JANUARY!  

Happy New Year!  This is the beginning of our 31 Days of prayer. January Edition:


Day 1:  Father God, we thank You for being our All in All for another Year and another day.  We rejoice in who You are; we know you sustain us and keep us!  Your Promises are sure and we rest in Your arms, trusting You with our lives no matter what!

I pray today for all those who attend Grace Family Fellowship!  May You protect them Father, and keep them in good health.  I know Your hand is upon them, so cover them and heal them in Jesus name!  Your word declares in Exodus 14:13a-14 “But Moses told the people, ‘Don’t be afraid. Just stand still and watch the LORD rescue you today… The LORD Himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.’”
No matter what you have felt today, in the first day of 2022, May God give you a confidence and calm! Our God will fight for us and sovereignly keep us!  He has destined a future and a hope for us, so receive this word today, and allow Him to fight for you!  Oh, He is so good!  And He has blessed and favored us: Today we focus on this Blessing. He has called us to His Peace and His Rest! (1 Corinthians 7:15c)  To God be the Glory! 

Day 2: Prayer 31 – Dear heavenly Father our Jehovah Rapha, the Lord our healer! We worship You as the one who can keep us alive during this pandemic. We pray we do not get this covid virus or any sickness but even if we do, we praise You for healing us and seeing us through! Heal those who suffer with chronic pain: back, knee, neck, shoulders or any chronic pain: be healed in Jesus name!

Your word says in 2 Corinthians 5:17 “anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone, a new life has begun!” I praise You Father that this is an ongoing promise for us as Christians! 2021 and the old problems, mistakes, losses and heartaches are in the past. Let New Life, in this new year, full of new potential and new possibilities, give us the courage to do new things with Your help and for Your Glory! Set us on fire with new wine with a fresh in filling of Your Holy Spirit! (Luke 5:37-39) This is no time to live in the old wineskins – but stretch us Lord and do new things in us that bring us closer to You!

Today we are blessed and favored – focusing on the victory You won for us Jesus, on the cross! We have permanent Victory! Glory to His name! Amen.

Day 3: Prayer 31 – Jehovah-Jireh “the Lord who provides”, You provide everything that we need Hallelujah! We thank You Lord for providing health, we thank You for providing our needs, we thank You for giving us the desires of our heart, as our desires are in line with Your desires. We thank You for Your many blessings upon us! You’ve highly favored us! You have favored us and we focus today on the “joy of the Lord that is our strength”. (Nehemiah 8:10)  You have favored us with joy that surpasses happiness and surpasses the things that this world has to offer; whether they be disappointing or not. You favor us with joy! 2 Timothy 1:7 says “You’ve not given us a spirit of fear but of love and of power and of a sound mind.” And I think You today Lord that You’ve given us that sense of power and confidence and sound mindedness and clarity and soberness! And we joyfully praise You and worship You as the one and only God, who is allowing us to walk through this journey of life, this grace journey, with Your help! With a sound mind, with soberness, and with alertness! And I thank you Lord that we don’t have to walk in this old world consumed or in bondage to fear! But Your power, Your confidence is what we walk in! As our “feet are shod with the gospel of peace” (Ephesians 6:15), we walk in Your confidence, knowing that the very ground we walk on has been given to us by You! In love, with Your confidence, and in joy! To God be the glory!  Amen.

Day 4: Prayer 31 – Father God, El Moshaah, “The God who saves”! (Psalm 68:20)
We praise You El Moshaah, as the One we can always rely upon to save us!  You save us from sin, You save us from bondage, You save us from slavery, You save us from eternal damnation, You save us from ourselves, You save us from living lives of confusion, You save us from purposelessness!  You save us from troubles when we turn & trust in You!  The Word declares this prayer: in Numbers 6:24-25 “The Lord bless you and keep you;25 The Lord make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you;”   And Psalm 28:7 “The Lord is my strength and my shield; in Him my heart trusts.” I thank the Lord that we will make it through this day!  We will make it through this moment, this hour, this week!  Whatever you are dealing with today, God’s face is going to shine upon you! Father, help us trust You and lean on You as our strength!  This is not the hour to loose faith and doubt!  This is the time to Believe!  We pray, and God works! We pray together, in agreement and God moves! We believe!  We Believe!  Don’t tell me God can’t do it! We rebuke Satan in the name of Jesus!  Genuinely!  And We believe, because we have seen God Save and do miracles! Because we Believe what the Word of God says!  Pray it with me: I am going to make it through!  I will arise and put my faith into action!  I will arise and take steps of faith and even leaps of Faith!  I will trust that at this stage in my journey, one step at a time…God, You are there!  You are strengthening me!  In Jesus Name!  To God be the Glory!  Amen!

Day 5: Prayer 31 – Father God, our EloHim, All Powerful One and Creator!  (Deuteronomy 10:17). I rejoice that You are my Origin!  You knew me before I was in my mother’s womb (Jeremiah 1:5). I thank You today for covering me and keeping me!  I praise You today that Nothing is impossible for You!  I am blessed and favored today, focusing on Your Holy Spirit which You have placed inside of me!  I’m Your Temple, and Your sweet Spirit is my Ally, Comforter, Counselor, Advocate, and Helper! (John 14:16-26) I Rejoice that You lead and direct me by Your Holy Spirit.  Don’t allow me to be led astray by any influences! I pray that my own mind be pure so that my weaknesses and flesh do not carry me away from Your purpose and plan. I pray the prayer of Your Word in Romans 15:13 “I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in Him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.”  We receive this today!  We receive Your Hope, we receive Your Joy, we receive Your peace, we Receive Your confidence, and Your Power working through us by Your Holy Spirit!  I pray for the members and attenders of Grace Family Fellowship! May they receive this and be encouraged in Jesus Name!  To God be the Glory!  Amen!

Day 6: Prayer 31 – Our Father, El Roi, “the God who sees me”. (Jeremiah 1:5) Father, we know that You are fully aware of every circumstance (past, present, and future) in our life. You know our troubles and You want us to rely on You. Today I will place every circumstance in Your capable hands!  There are many factors I have no control over, but I can Trust You!  I must believe that all the things that happen or are allowed to happen in life will ultimately come back around to bless and glorify Your name! (Romans 8:28) Help me Father, when my thoughts go to a place that asks: “How do You get glory out of this God?”  Help me to stay fond of running to Your capable arms!  I know that with flesh, these things are impossible, but with You, all things are possible! (Matthew 19:26)

Your Word declares of us in 1 Peter 2:9-10 “But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; 10 who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained God’s mercy.”
Thank You for Choosing me and making us Your people.  And today I am Blessed and Highly favored, focusing on our privilege of enjoying Your relational presence!  I can know that You are there!  I can know that You care about what I’m going through!  I can be assured that You are able to provide precisely what is needed to face any situation! I have Victory today in Jesus!  I enjoy Your presence constantly and I Praise Your Name!  To God be the Glory! Amen!  

Day 7: Prayer 31 – Heavenly Father, Jehovah Shalom, the Lord is peace. (Numbers 6:26) I worship You today as the One that not only has the ability to bring us peace…You are peace!  In You, peace is found for the troubled soul; Calm for the anxious mind, and a divine healing between a broken relationship!  You made the way for us to have a relationship again with You!  Thank You Father for desiring to be close to me! I pray that I will desire daily, to be closer to You!  You removed the hostile and destructive sin that separated us…and now there is Peace!  May that peace manifest in my life and in my world…may it spill over into my earthly relationships…family, friends, co-workers, church family…that I may reflect Your nature to all around me.  In Jesus name!

Today I am blessed and favored, focusing on the Bible You have given to us! You have blessed us with more than a book, but a living, breathing word that has power to change things inside and out all around us!  Your Word says in 2 Timothy 3:16 “All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.” I praise You today for giving us Your supernatural voice in our daily lives! Your voice is relevant, insightful, brings current wisdom and is everlasting! All wrapped in the pages of these 66 Miracle books!  Thank You for showing us the way! Thank You for epitomizing Love! We Praise You for being Peace!  To God the Glory! Amen!

Day 8: Prayer 31 – Heavenly Father, Jehovah Tsuri, the Lord my Rock! (Psalm 28:1) We praise You our solid, reliable, strong and protecting Savior!  We bless Your name today as the only One who can hide us in a safe place! 

Your word says in 2 Corinthians 10:4-5 “For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ”. In this time we live in, we need every spiritual weapon that You provide Lord.  We need every thought, argument, and opinion that goes against Your Word or Your will to be cast down from our thoughts, feelings or plans!  We rebuke satan who roams around looking for ways to distract, destroy and discourage our harmony with You Lord!  (1 Peter 5:8) In the name of Jesus Christ, we have victory!  (1 Corinthian 15:57) I’m so thankful for the victory and freedom You have purchased for us on the Cross of calvary! 

We are blessed and highly favored today, focusing on that freedom You have provided from the Law!  We no longer have to worry about being worthy or penance for our many sins!  Thanks be unto Your Name Father, who has redeemed us from our sins because of the punishment Your Son Jesus endured for us!  (Galatians 3:13) And Glory to Your name who raise Him from the dead, that I might have the solid hope of eternal life and escape God’s wrath in judgment!  To God be all the Glory!  Amen! 

Day 9: Prayer 31 – Heavenly Father, JEHOVAH SHAMMAH, the Lord is there!  (Exodus 48:35)  We worship You today for always being with us!  I’m thankful today for Your presence at church and experiencing Your sweet anointing as I worshiped You, Father!  You are so worthy of praise!  I can’t praise You enough!  I feel so good when praising You!  Thank You for comforting me, encouraging me, healing me, delivering me, strengthening me, and pouring Your Spirit in me as I praise Your worthy Name! 

I’m blessed and highly favored today, focusing on Your power to deliver us!  But not just once…You keep on delivering us! At every crossroads of life, at every change in life, when a new temptation arises…You are still able to deliver when we turn to You!  Your word says, in 1 Corinthians 10:13  “The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, He will show you a way out so that you can endure.”  I thank You Father that this week, no matter what I face or what temptations come, You are enough! You are able to provide a way out! I pray that not only will I be able to endure, but I pray for my fellow Christian’s in the household of faith everywhere, that they will know Your strength and endurance!  May we persevere, not allowing anything to throw us off track from pursuing You. Knowing You Father, and enjoying Your presence is such a reward!  And it is only the beginning!  To God be the Glory! Amen! 

Day 10: Prayer 31 – Our Heavenly Father, Jehovah Shalom, the Lord is Peace.  Tonight as I prepare for a nights rest, I am Thankful that I can lay down, not just to sleep, but lay down to Your rest. You give me peace of mind, peace in my spirit, and peace about what I will wake up to tomorrow. If I die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take. I believe that if I don’t wake up tomorrow to see Tuesday, I will wake up to see You Lord!  But if I do wake up to a new day, I believe You are going to help me through every moment of it!  I give every day to You, but I also give every night to You! 

Your Word encourages in Philippians 4:8 “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever things are true, whatever things are honorable, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue, and if there is any praise, think on these things.” May my mind be focused on what Your word instructs, so I can be at rest instead of wrestles tonight! So I can get good sleep instead of toss and turn. Heal my aches and pains so I can rest easy. And May I know that You have already worked so that tomorrow will be blessed, as I trust and rely on You.  And Lord, if there is anything in my life that is not pleasing to You. If there is any sin that would hinder my relationship with You…forgive me and cleanse me I pray.  I love You and I want my life to be right with You, more than anything!  IN Jesus name. Amen! 

Day 11: Prayer 31 – Heavenly Father, my Lord and Savior Jesus, the Bread of Life. (John 6:35) You said in Your Word: “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to Me will never be hungry again. Whoever believes in Me will never be thirsty.” –  John 6:35. I worship You today who holds eternal truth that feeds and nourishes the spirit like physical bread feeds and nourishes the body.  Your Truth, Lord, is Life to my soul!  So help us to receive, enthusiastically, the truths found in Your word!  From the simple to the profound. From the challenging to the encouraging!  Let Your, God breathed, Word bring transformational power to my life and the lives of those around me as I live out Your Truth with confidence. Today people say that everyone has “their truth”. Forgive us Lord! We are mislead when we think contrary to Your word.  As Jesus said to Pilate in John 18:37 “…I was born and have come into this world to testify to the truth.” And in John 14:6 when You said Jesus, “…I am the truth…”. Today, we submit to You and Your truth as the only truth our lives and minds should give credibility to. We worship You today in spirit and in Truth!  We are blessed and favored today, focusing on our knowledge of who and what Truth is and where the praise belongs!  You are the only One who deserves the praise!  To God be the Glory! Amen! 

Day 12: Prayer 31 – Heavenly Father, Jehovah Tsidqenuw (Jeremiah 23:6; 33:16), the Lord our Righteousness!  We worship You today as the One who is perfect and pure in every way!  You alone are the standard of what is right and You are always right and You always do everything perfect!  We glorify Your righteous Name!

Your word says in 2 Corinthians 5:21 “For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.” We thank You today, our Savior, for making us right with You, through Your Son Jesus!  Because of Your sacrifice, we can come boldly to Your throne to pray and abide in Your presence.  (Hebrews 4:16) I need Your righteousness! I Hunger and thirst for Your righteousness!  Thank you for providing it, in abundance, as I seek after You!  Help me to live in Your righteousness, striving to please You and delight in Your ways! 

We pray for those who are sick today. Those facing things that need divine help. And we pray that Your presence will be felt very strong during our time of worship! We are blessed and favored today, focusing on the reality of Your favor regardless of what we are facing! You love us and have made a way for us to be with You!  For this we are eternally grateful! In Jesus name! Amen!

Day 13 – Prayer 31:  Heavenly Father, Jehovah Sabaoth, “The Lord of Hosts” (1 Samuel 1:3) “The Lord of Heaven’s Armies”.  I praise You today as the One who cannot fail!  Victory is perfectly Yours, not because of strategy, tactics, or power only, but because You define Victory!  You are Victory!  When I bring my life to You and let You define me…I can bring my loss and You turn my losses into gains! As Paul said in Philippians 1:21 “For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.” Your word says in Philippians 3:8 “What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ…”  I’ve gained You Lord, so no matter what happens, I win because I’m in You!  I’m blessed and favored today, focusing on the victory that You provide us!  You command the Armies of Heaven!  The devil has no chance! “If You Lord, be for me, who can be against me?” (Romans 8:31). 

To God be the Glory!  Amen! 

Day 14: Prayer 31 – Heavenly Father, Jehovah Rohi, “The Lord my Shepherd”. (Psalm 23:1) Psalm 23 “… I have all that I need. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness. For His name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the Lord Forever.”

We thank You Lord for guiding us, protecting us, providing for us, and being our Shepherd!  I’m blessed and favored today, focusing upon Your oversight of our lives!  You watch over us!  You even give Your Angels charge over us and keep us! (Psalm 91:11) I can’t praise You enough Father!  I love You and I know You first loved me!  (1 John 4:19)  To God be the Glory! Amen!

Day 15: Prayer 31 – Heavenly Father, Jehovah Nissi, the Lord our Banner! (Exodus 17:15) I praise You Lord, for being our refuge! You provide the place for our victory!  Just like with Aaron and Hur, as they lifted Moses hands, and as long as Moses hands were raised to You, You won the battle against the Amalekites!  Today, as long as I hold You up above my life, and hold up Your word, and hold up Your ways above my life…You promise to be my refuge also!  You promise to be my place of victory! We start from a place of victory because of You, our Banner!  I desire to lift You up God, so all can see Your glory and know that You are a Good and Just God! 

Lamentation 3:22-23 says: “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness”

I am blessed and favored today, focusing upon Your Faithfulness and Mercy! Your Mercy for us is new every morning!  To God be the Glory!  Amen!

Day 16: Prayer 31 – Heavenly Father, Jehovah Mekaddishkam, The Lord our Sanctifier (Leviticus 20:8). I worship You today, Holy and perfect God!  You are worthy of all praise because You are the only Holy One!  You made the heavens and the earth in just 6 days, yet, You are still working on me.  I need You, precious and Holy God. I desire to be like You…but I struggle!  I need Your help daily…So, don’t allow me to yield to temptation, but deliver me from the evil one. (Matthew 6:13). And continue to sanctify me! It is my desire to represent You well to the World. To be set apart and represent You well to those around me. As Your word says in Matthew 5:16 “…let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven”. This is my desire…to do good works and give You glory! Blessed Father, may the Light of Your Son Jesus, shine through me every day!

I am blessed and favored today, focusing upon Your sanctifying work in me!  As Your word says in Psalm 40:2 “He lifted me up from the pit of despair, out of the miry clay; He set my feet upon a rock, and made my footsteps firm.”  I can walk today and tomorrow, knowing You are with me, giving me a firm and steady place to walk with You!  To God be the Glory!  Amen!

Day 17 – Prayer 31: Heavenly Father, Jehovah Elyown, “the Lord Most High” (Psalm 7:17).  I worship You today Father, You are above it all!  Every problem I face, every issue I confront, every crossroads I come too, You are bigger and higher and more than enough to help me with anything! I praise Your glorious name!  I pray today for all those who are sick and battling Covid or any sickness today!  Father, bring healing and deliverance and may each one make a full recovery in Jesus name!

I am blessed and highly favored today, focusing upon the Divine Knowledge You, Father, give to those who seek You.  And the Mysteries of the Kingdom that You are willing to unfold for our understanding as we grow and mature in You.  Your word says in Proverbs 2:6 “For the LORD gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding.” And Jesus said in Luke 8:10a And He said, “To you it has been granted to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God,…” We Glorify You for entrusting us with understanding that comes from Having the mind of Christ. Give us sharp and clear understanding daily Lord…we live in troubled times, and though we will not understand all things…You have instructed us to ask for wisdom, and today we ask and praise You for the answer! (James 1:5)  To God be the Glory!  Amen!

Day 18: Prayer 31 – Heavenly Father, Jehovah-Shammah, The Lord is present, the Your Lord are there!  (Ezra 48:35)  Your word says in Psalm 139  “I can never get away from your presence! If I go up to heaven, you are there; if I go down to the grave, you are there. If I ride the wings of the morning, if I dwell by the farthest oceans, even there your hand will guide me, and your strength will support me…I cannot hide from you.” (Psalm 139:7b-10,12b) Father, I’m so grateful that You are there!  When no one else is there, You are there!  I praise Your name! 

Today, I am blessed and highly favored, focusing on the Blessing and the privilege to Pray.  Your word says that “[Jesus] is sitting in the place of honor at God’s right hand, pleading for us.” (Romans 8:34) I know my prayers are heard. There is so much to pray about! So many needs!  As we each individually prayer for our list of people we intercede for…Know that God is working!  We pray for our families, we pray for our friends, we pray for our church family, we pray for our nation, we pray for our leaders. We pray for our president and vise president. We pray for protection, provision, healing, comfort, joy, and help to all that need. We pray for the less fortunate and we pray for those that need to turn to You Jesus for salvation! And we pray that we can always hear Your voice and draw closer to You!  Today, we are blessed to Pray.  To God be the Glory!  Amen!

Day 19: Prayer 31 – Heavenly Father, Jehovah Hoseenu, the Lord our Maker!  (Psalm 95:6) I praise You today, creator God, for making all things! But I also praise You for making me a new creation in Christ Jesus! (2 Corinthians 5:17).  Wow, I am blessed for not just a second chance, but all the many chances You have given us as we navigate through this life! Through the ups and the downs…You make men and women into new creations! I pray for those who have yet to yield…open their eyes and draw them to Yourself, in Jesus name!

I also pray today for the life of the unborn child…sadly, one of the most dangerous categories to be in today as a human being!  The lives that are aborted through pure murder, in the name of mostly convenience!  God change our land, our leaders, people who contemplate this and those states that feel this is acceptable! For we as believers know it is a sin in Your sight! You created all life and You do not make mistakes!
I’m blessed and highly favored to be alive today and have the chance to serve You!  Anoint us, embolden us, and captivate our hearts to serve like never before! In Jesus name!  Amen! 

Day 20: Prayer 31 – Heavenly Father, Emmanuel, God is with us…(Matthew 1:23)  I Praise You today as the One who has come to us!  Leaving the luxuries of heaven and brought low to where we are and what we deal with and You involve Yourself with us! Thank You Lord!

As Rev. Earhart shared last night, We pray for the boldness to be the Ecclesia…To be a prophetic voice to the community! To take the powerful Gospel to the public square and involve ourselves outside the church to praise You, to proclaim You boldly, and let the Light of Your Son Shine through us!  Help us not just live this inside our church, but live it boldly in the public square. Your Word says in Matthew 16:18 “…on this rock I will build My church (Ecclesia), and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it.” Jesus, You said You would build Your church on the confession that You are the Messiah, the Son of God!  Help us to take this faith, this confession, this Truth to the public and it make an eternal difference! We need You Lord!  Our families need You! Our world needs You! John 3:17, “You did not come into the world to condemn the world, but that the world, through You, might be save!”  You are the Savior, You are the Deliverer!  We confess that You are reaching the lost, healing the sick, and bringing hope…and You will do it through us! The Ecclesia!  To God Be the Glory!  Amen!

Day 21: Prayer 31 – Heavenly Father, our Just One (Acts 22:14 NKJV), and our Avenger (1 Thessalonians 4:6); You are the God of Justice and You will punish all sin!  I praise You today as the Holy and Just One who decided to redeem me by avenging my sin upon Your own Son.  Jesus’ blood has made me clean, white as snow! (Isaiah 1:18; 1 John 1:7) Oh, Praise be to Your Holy and perfect Name!

Your Kingdom come in contact with me daily; invade my territory, for I have given it to You!  Your Kingdom mind come to me. Your Kingdom Purpose come to me. Your will be done, on earth and in this earthly flesh, as it is in heaven! (Matthew 6:10) Let my life be dedicated to pleasing You and serving You.  Help me to not just work to “make a living”, but work to make a giving of myself to please Your purpose and calling! May my life be more than just about me…Give me the courage to give up my life that I might find LIFE!  (Matthew 10:39) For You, Jesus, are Life!  And there is no greater Life to live!

In John 10:10, Jesus, You said: “The thief [satan] comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come so that they may have life, and may have it abundantly.” To God be the Glory!  Amen! 

Day 22: Prayer 31 – Heavenly Father, We worship and Praise You today!  Thank You for providing us an Advocate!  (1 John 2:1)  You, who knew no sin, became sin for us.” As Your word tell us in 2 Corinthians 5:21. So we know that You know what it is like to bear our sins…You have stood innocent, yet took on our sin.  That is what gives You the authority and the right to Mediate for us day and night!  1 Timothy 2:5 says:  “For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,” Glory be to the Name of Jesus, who stands in the middle for us!  Who stands in the gap for us!  Who expresses our needs to the Father directly as we come boldly and humbly to Your throne of Grace!  Give us the selflessness to come to You to mediate for others. To honestly share our concern for others to You Father… For their healing, for their salvation, for their deliverance!  There are hurting people, and we bring them to You Father, even if they will not bring themselves!  We intercede and we believe that You are working, on our behalf, to answer! 

We are blessed and favored today, focusing on the privilege of being right with God! We are not worthy of this honor, but You Lord and Savoir, Jesus, made it possible!  We cannot praise You enough!  Jesus said, in Luke 19:40, that “if we keep quite, the rocks or stones will cry out,” in their place!  Today we rejoice, today we praise You! No one will need to cry out in my place! For I cry out to You today all Praise, all glory and all honor to You!  Amen!

Day 23: Prayer 31 – Heavenly Father, we Praise You and glorify Your Son Jesus, our Foundation (1 Corinthians 3:11)!  We Praise You for saving us from our sins! For opening our eyes to our need for a Savior! For being a stable Foundation that is unshakable! We glorify You Father for Your keeping power!  You keep us from falling (Jude 1:24-25)! Your word says in Psalm 12:7 “You, O LORD, will keep us; You will forever guard us from this generation.” Guard us Father and guard those we love from being deceived by this generation so confused by satan! Today we rebuke every evil that comes through the airwaves, media, TV, movies, books and any entertainment that so forcibly goes against Your word!  Raise up Christian artists and influencers in this generation! Raise up leaders who fear You Father!  Raise up men and women who stand firm on Your foundation!  While all others sink and fail, You Lord, endure FOREVER! Praise be to Your name!

We are blessed and favored today, focusing on the Fullness of God made available to us in You Christ!  You have made us complete in the Blessing of knowing You as Abba Father, Son, and Holy Spirit! (Colossians 2:9-10) I’m thankful for Your conviction power that keeps us on the right path! I’m thankful for the freedom and joy that You give!  This coming week, may we all walk in the confidence that being whole, forgiven, and empowered brings by being made complete in You!  No matter what we may face, being complete in You Father, Son and Holy Spirit; will provide us with whatever we need to overcome COMPLETELY!  To God be the Glory!  Amen!

Day 24: Prayer 31 – Heavenly Father, we celebrate You and worship You today as the One True God who changes not!  (Malachi 3:6)  Your word says in Hebrews 13:8, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.”  We are blessed and favored today, focusing on the reality that You stay true to Your Word, Your promises, Your character, and Your plan for each one of us!  And I am also thankful today that You Never Fail!  (Joshua 21:45) Every promise You make, You have or shall perform it!  You have said in Your in Isaiah 9:7 that “…the zeal of the Lord of hosts shall perform this.” or “The passionate commitment of the LORD of Heaven’s Armies will make this happen!”  Wow, Praise Your Name! I’m so glad that You are passionate and zealous about working for our good!  I’m glad that You are in control!  I am thankful that we can rest easy at night knowing that such a marvelous and merciful Father God is watching over us!  And that with You Lord, It is NEVER TOO LATE!  No matter what, as long as we have breath in our lungs, it is not too late! For those we love who are running from God, it is not too late!  We surrender all to You today, knowing that You Love us so much, that Your Zeal is working for our good!  To God be the Glory!  Amen!

Day 25: Prayer 31 – Heavenly Father, we worship You today, magnifying Your perfect name!  You provided for us a perfect Nourisher, The Vine (John 15:5) Jesus, Your Son!  May we stay connected to You Father! May we stay attached to the Vine from which we draw our strength! Jesus, You said in John 15:5 “Yes, I Am the Vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in Me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from Me you can do nothing.”  And I ask for the discipline of Psalm 19:14 “May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in Your sight, O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.” I’m aware that my words are containers of power…May my words and thoughts carry bricks that build up others and never be thrown to break or tear down!  May I bear good fruit for the Kingdom of God and the ministry!  Anoint my words with the wisdom of Your word that all around me may be blessed. May Parents, spouses, friends, children, teens, adults young and old, employees and employers…may each person I touch and influence see Your touch and influence!  I desire to be a branch that reaches out and bears good fruit, that glorifies You Father! 

Today I am blessed and highly favored, focusing upon my mind and attitude that is shaped, birthed and even reprogramed by You Christ Jesus!  (Philippians 2:5) For as Your word warns us in Matthew 12:34b “For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.” I pray for Godly things to fill my heart so that the overflow will be for the blessing of those around me! In Jesus Name!  Amen! 

Day 26: Prayer 31 – Heavenly Father, we worship You today as the Lord of Life and the One who has provided Your Son Jesus, who is the “Resurrection and the Life” (John 11:25) and the One to bring Hope to all mankind! Your word says that Jesus was the “first fruits of the Resurrection” (1 Corinthians 15:20) and oh what Fruit He continues to be!  We Praise the Name of Jesus!  And because He arose first, like the first fruits of a harvest, we have the Blessed Hope of our Resurrection! As Titus 2:13 says: “while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ,”.

We are Blessed and Highly Favored today, Focusing upon the promise that Jesus has gone to prepare a place for us, and as You said Jesus in John 14:3 “And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to Myself, that where I am you may be also.”  Glory to Your name Father, for this promise, this Hope, this prophetic future that assures us that the Best is yet to come!  This life is not the end!  We will suffer for a little while, in comparison to ETERNITY, but then everything will be restored!  (1 Peter 5:10). With this divine knowledge, we can face anything! We can be certain that things will not always be difficult like they are here! Oh what hope! Oh what a gift of eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord!  Thank You Jesus! Amen!

Day 27: Prayer 31 – Heavenly Father, we worship You today and we look to Jesus, the “Author and Finisher of our faith” (Hebrews 12:2) we magnify You!  Thank You for forgiving us, sustaining us, healing us, sanctifying us, teaching us, guiding us and providing for all our needs!  We pray that the needs of others will be provided, the sick, the poor, the widows, the orphans, those in jail or prison; may they see You Lord, in the kindness of Christian laborers! May Your heart of benevolence overflow in our hearts to pray for and help them. (Matthew 25:31-46)  I’m thankful for the times when someone was there praying for me, when I was in trouble, and You Father came through! Today, we now pray for those who are in need, knowing that You will hear and answer.

Today we are Blessed and Highly Favored, focusing on reaping and receiving what we have sowed in the Spirit. As Your word warns, in Galatians 6:7-8 “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. 8 For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.” I’m thankful that I can choose to sow faith, joy, peace, mercy, kindness, encouragement, and many other virtues and receive the same as You, Father, order my steps!  To God be all the Glory! Amen! 

Day 28: Prayer 31 – Heavenly Father, we Praise You today as the Source of all things! Hebrews 5:9 says of Christ, “After He had finished His work, He became the source of eternal salvation for everyone who obeys Him.” We listen and heed Your word Father! I desire to obey You. I desire to walk in the fear of the Lord. (Psalm 111:10) You are also the Source of Faith.  Your word even says that there are spiritual gifts that include special or “great faith”. (1 Corinthians 12:9)  Lord, some days I struggle with basic faith…help me my unbelief (Mark 9:24), and build up my most holy faith Father, as I pray in the Spirit! (Jude 1:20)  You are the Source, so today, I draw from the well that never runs dry (John 4:14). Thank You Lord! 

Today, we pray for the Missionaries. There are many challenges they face as they bring the Gospel to places around the world. Protect them and provide for them Father…Let Nations of people turn to You and may revival sweep many lands in Jesus name! 

Today I am Blessed and Highly favored, focusing on the fact that You never give up on me.  Isaiah 41:10 says “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”  I am so thankful for Your word and promises Father! All Glory to Your Powerful Name!  Amen!

Day 29: Prayer 31 – Heavenly Father, our Savior!  We glorify the name of Your Son Jesus! We praise You for saving us from sin, saving us from hell, saving us from purposelessness, saving us from ourselves, and You will save us from the Great Tribulation when You catch us away to be with You!                          (1 Thessalonians 4:17)  We magnify You as the King of kings and Lord of lords! (Revelation 19:16)

Today we pray for our communities and region. Protect us from sickness, poverty, bondage to drugs and alcohol, and accidents!  Draw those who are lost to You! Dads, moms, children; may entire families come to You as Savior! 

Today, we are Blessed and Highly favored, focusing upon our identity in You, Lord Jesus!  You have called us Your Bride (Revelation 19:7).  May we be without spot or wrinkle and found blameless in You!  (Ephesians 5:27)  May we be keenly aware that we must prepare ourselves daily, with fear and trembling, trusting and depending upon Jesus alone!  Keep us sober, alert, and focused on our number one priority, YOU Father!  As Your word says in 1 Peter 5:7-11 “Turn all your anxiety over to God because He cares for you. 8 Keep your mind clear, and be alert. Your opponent the devil is prowling around like a roaring lion as he looks for someone to devour. 9 Be firm in the faith and resist him, knowing that other believers throughout the world are going through the same kind of suffering. 10 God, who shows you His kindness  and who has called you through Christ Jesus to His eternal glory, will restore you, strengthen you, make you strong, and support you as you suffer for a little while. 11 All power to Him forever! Amen.”

Day 30: Prayer 31 – Heavenly Father, Yahweh, the I AM!  We rejoice in who You are Father, that You ARE and will always be our Eternal God!  There is no One Like You!  WE love You and can’t praise You enough!  Thank You for Your strong and precious presence in church today!  We are thankful that even when we are not feeling Your presence as strong, You are right there telling us “I Am”!  We do not live on feelings or by sight, but by Faith!  (2 Corinthians 5:7)

Oh there are so many to pray for. As each individual and family lift up their list of prayer needs to You, Father we know that You are able to hear each and everyone of our needs!  Heal, deliver, save, uphold, redeem, bring back together, bring peace, redeem the day, do miracles…all things are possible for You!  (Matthew 19:26) Glory to Your name! 

We are Blessed and Highly favored today, focusing upon privilege of having experienced You and Knowing You!  We know where the praise belongs! You are so worthy!  We have encountered the God of the Universe and found You to be our All in All!  Your word says in Psalm 34:8 “O taste and see that the Lord is good;  How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!” Glory be to Your powerful name!  Your name is like honey on my lips, Your spirit’s like water to my soul, Your word is a lamp unto my feet, Jesus I love You, I love You!  Amen!

Day 31: Prayer 31 – Heavenly Father, we rejoice in who You are and we glorify Your magnificent and worthy Name!  We have been praying this month as a church family, every day, that You would bless, protect, heal, revive, provide and bring miracles to Your church family and the household of faith everywhere! We stood in agreement and interceded for family and for our communities and for our state and our nation and for our leaders.  We pray Father that You would help us every day! Because we can’t make it without Your help!
Psalms 26:3 says,  “I am always aware of Your unfailing love and I live according to Your truth.”  That is our prayer and desire, that we would always be aware of Your love and we want to live according to Your perfect will and according to Your truth Lord!  We are in need of You as a nation!  We’re in need of You as a people! And we’re in need of You as a church! 
Lord we rebuke every sickness, every fever, every virus, every COVID, every lung ailment, every headache, depression, every diabetic issue, cancer , and every blood issue!   We come against chronic pain right now in Jesus name and we come against every single sickness or disease or birth defect!  That You would bring healing and deliverance and help!  Lord, we stand on Your word and we resolve to walk daily, trusting in You, for Your help and Your strength!  We can’t praise You enough!  We can’t love You enough!  We have faith in You, Father, and we believe that You’re working according to Your will and according to Your word on our behalf! We glorify Your magnificent name as a church and as a people! Amen!

Focus Theme 21 22

In Luke 1:28, an Angel and Messenger from GOD came to the young virgin Mary and told her to “rejoice highly favored one…” “…you are blessed among women…”. Today, we hear this phrase “I am blessed and highly favored of the Lord”. It is used in songs and in greetings. But as Christians, do we FOCUS on WHY we are blessed and favored?  What does it mean that we are blessed and favored today?  
For Mary, the message was that she was favored because she was a faithful Jew, a believer of God who feared Jehovah. It also means, more specifically, that God had chosen her to bear the SON OF GOD.  WOW! Talk about Blessed and Favored!  But today, God’s word has given us a specific promise, tailor made for us who are IN CHRIST.
Ephesians 1:3 (NKJV)
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,…” 
God has made provision, right where you are, right NOW, to bless you in every area of your life, where ever you need it, in a supernatural way! Why am I blessed and favored? Because:
   1. God has called us to His Peace and Rest! Matthew 11:28; 1 Corinthians 7:15
   2. God has purchased our VICTORY on the Cross!
   3. God has given us His Holy Spirit as an Ally!  
   4. God has allowed us to enjoy His Relational Presence!
   5. God has given us His Word. Causing a Holy Book to become more than a Book, but a Living Word from the Lord in REAL Time! 
   6. God has given us Freedom from the Law! Never again do you have to wonder if you are worthy or good enough, because if you are IN CHRIST, He is good enough! He is worthy!
   7. God has Delivered us and will keep on delivering us!
   8. God has Blessed and Favored you REGARDLESS of what is going on in your life! Good or bad!
   9. God has given you Divine Knowledge. To understand the things of the Spirit and the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God.
  10. We are Blessed to know where the praise belongs.
  11. God has given us the blessing of Prayer.
  12. God has called us the Church, His Bride.
These are just a few of the promises of God that assure us we are Blessed and Highly favored when we are In Christ!
