Living in God's Blessings

Lord, when I follow Your commands, You set me on high above all nations. All these blessings come and overtake me, if I obey Your voice.

I am blessed in the city and blessed in the country, my children are blessed and so is my garden, orchard and farm.  They all produce good fruit because of Your grace. My cupboards are always full and never empty. My barn is blessed with abundant storage, for You are my provider.

Whether I come in or go out, whatever I do and wherever I go, You bless me. You conquer my enemies when they rise against me- thank You Father! You give me complete victory as You scatter the enemy in different directions.

Lord, You command blessings upon me in my barns and all that I put my hand to, everything I work for. You bless me in the land that You have given me.
 
When I obey Your commands and walk in Your ways, You establish me as Your own. I am holy and special to You. Everyone around me knows I am Yours and they respect me because of You Father.

You grant abundant prosperity in my children, in my livestock, and the land You gave to me. You open up the heavens and send rain to my land in it season to bless the works of my hands. You cause me to be able to lend to others and not have to borrow from them.
 
I am the head and not the tail. I listen to Your commands, I carefully obey them therefore I will only go up and never down, I will be at the top and not the bottom. I will not turn aside from any words You speak.  I will not go the right or the left, I do not follow after any other gods, nor I do not worship or serve them.
 
I am Yours and I am blessed-  I praise You and thank You Jesus that I can live in Your blessings day and night.

Deuteronomy 28:1-14

Guide Us Lord

Guide Us Lord

Teach us Your ways, LORD; lead us in a straight path because of our enemies. If You’re pleased with us Father, teach us so we can know You and continue to find favor with You, and remember that this nation is Your people. I know Your presence goes with us and you give us rest.

Help us walk in the truth; and give us an undivided heart, so we will fear Your name. We praise You Lord God with all our heart and we glorify Your name forever. Great is Your love for us, You have delivered our souls from the depths of Sheol. Lead us in righteousness -- make Your way straight before us.

Since You are our rock and our fortress, for the sake of Your name lead and guide our nation Father. Keep us free from the trap that is set for us, for You are our strength and refuge. Guide us in truth, for You are God our Savior, and our hope is in You all day long. You are good and upright Lord; showing sinners the way and directing the humble in what is right and teaching them. You are loving and faithful toward those who keep Your covenant and testimony. For Your name’s sake Lord, forgive our sins, for they are great. We fear You Father, thank You for instructing us in the way we should choose.

You lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths; You guide them and turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. You will not forsake them. Because of Your tender mercy God, the Sunrise from on high will visit us and give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, You show us the path of peace.

It is You Father who arms this land with strength and keeps our way secure. Whether we turn to the right or to the left, our ears will hear a voice behind us, saying, "This is the way; walk in it." Your way is perfect Lord; Your Word is tried, true, tested and flawless. You are a shield to all who take refuge in You. Who is God besides You Lord? And who is the Rock? Only You God. You arm us with strength and keep our ways blameless and secure. Thank You for refreshing our soul and keeping us on the right path for Your name's sake Lord.

Thank You for Your Plans to Prosper Me Lord

You know the plans You have for me Father. They are plans to prosper me and not for disaster or harm, plans to give me hope and a future. Your will be done with my life Lord. 

Let my heart be inclined to fear You and keep Your commands always, so that things will go well with me and my children forever! I will be careful to do what You want Lord, and not turn to the right or the left, I want to be in Your will and on Your path at all times. Help me walk in obedience to all You command, so that I may have a long life and prosper in the land that I will possess.

Lord, You provide the strength I need to do what is right in Your eyes.  As long as I seek You, You cause me to prosper.  Let me be righteous in Your sight.

I submit my life to You Father. I will resist the devil so he has to flee. Drawing near to You, draws You near to me. I know You are with me when I am with You. When I seek You, I find You.

You help me grow powerful when I walk steadfastly next to You Father. You are the one who gives knowledge, intelligence and wisdom. The one who gets wisdom loves life, and people who cherish understanding will prosper.

He is Above All!

Lord God our Father, we praise Your name forever!  Yours is the mighty power and glory and victory and majesty.  Everything in the heavens and earth is Yours Lord, and this is Your Kingdom.  You are exalted as head above all.  Riches and honor come from You alone and You are the ruler of all mankind; Your hand controls power and might, and it is are Your discretion that men are made great and given strength.  God, we thank You and praise Your glorious name.

We Belong to the Good Shepherd

Lord, You open the gate for Your loved ones, we are Your sheep. We listen to Your voice.  You call us by name and lead us out.  When You have brought out all Your own, You go ahead and we follow You because we know Your voice.  We will never follow a stranger; in fact, we will run away because we do not recognize his voice. 

You are the gate and whoever enters through You will be saved.  We will come in and go out, and find pasture. You have come to give us not only life, but abundant life.

Jesus, You are the Good Shepherd, You know Your sheep, and we know You -just as the Father knows You and You know the Father- You lay down Your life for Your beloved.  You love sheep that are not of Your fold also, the lost, the ones who do not know You yet, and You bring them in too.  They likewise listen to Your voice; there will be one flock and one Shepherd. 

We listen to Your voice Lord, You know us, and we follow. You give eternal life, and we will never perish; no one will ever snatch us from Your hand Lord.  Your Father, who has given us to You, is greater than all; no one can snatch us out of the Father’s hand, and You and the Father are one.

Prayer for Our Nations Leaders


Father, we seek the peace and prosperity of our country which You have brought us to because as it prospers, we too will prosper. We lift the United States of America up to You.  We come before You to make petitions, prayers, and intercessions for our authorities and we give You thanks on behalf of all men. We pray for our government, our president, the representatives of our states and nation, and all those who influence them. We intercede for the leaders You have placed before us including mayors, judges, principals, policemen, pastors, preachers, teachers, military personnel and all those in power. We call all fathers forward to be the spiritual head of their household Lord.  We commit the leaders of our towns to the leaders of our nation into Your hands that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.  This is Your will and it pleases You because You want all people to be saved and to come to know the truth.

Create in our leaders a pure heart God, and renew a right and loyal spirit within them. Give them new hearts and new spirits; remove the hearts of stone and give them hearts  of flesh. Let them love You with their whole heart, soul, and mind. Give our leaders ears to hear Your voice and eyes to see your beauty and love.

We pray our leaders do not conform to the pattern of this world, but are transformed by the renewing of their minds so they may know what Your good and acceptable and perfect will is. If any lacks wisdom, let them ask, for You give generously to all without finding fault, and wisdom will be given to them.

We will not stop praying for our leaders Father. It is our desire that they be filled with the knowledge of Your will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; That they walk worthy of You Lord, pleasing You, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of You.  Let Your Holy Spirit guide their lives and give them comfort in knowing You are with them. 


Lord, we are submitted to our authorities, for we know all authority comes from You, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by You. For they are Your handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which You have prepared in advance for them to do. You are the One who changes times and seasons; removes authorities and raises up others. You give wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the understanding.


Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people You have chosen as Your heritage! Keep Your hand upon America and our leaders Father and cast out all enemies.  Our land is in need and left all alone, we put our hope in You Father God and we continue night and day to pray in the name of Jesus and to ask for Your help.

Cry For Our Nation

Lord, let Your people who are called by Your name, humble themselves and pray and seek Your face.  Let us turn from our wicked ways so You will hear from heaven and forgive our sin and heal our land.  Let us humble ourselves before You so You can lift us up. 
 

Father, forgive the ones who do not know any better, the ones who have not known You, who have not been taught Your ways or seen Your love, for they don’t know what they are doing. Open their eyes so they can see, give them ears to hear. Draw their hearts to You Lord. Show the unbelievers Your grace.
 

Touch every single leader of our nation. Guide them in righteous ways. If there are any hearts of stone, turn them to hearts of flesh. Give them and new heart and a new spirit. Let Your plans become their plans Lord.

Heavenly Father, forgive the backsliders of our nation.  We have been a stubborn and rebellious people, but please forgive our iniquities. We have been faithless. You tell us to return and You will cure us of backsliding.  Yes, we come to You, for You are the Lord our God. We return to You with all our heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning. You are close to the brokenhearted and save those who are crushed in spirit.  We turn from our evil ways and practices so we may stay in the land the You gave to us and our ancestors forever and ever. 

God, hear the cries of the righteous and save our nation. Claim us as Your own special possession Father.  Do wonders never before done in any nation in all the world so all that live among us will see how awesome Your works are! We will boast in You Lord.
 

You are merciful and compassionate, slow to anger and over flowing in gracious love. You are always ready to forgive and change Your plans about sending punishment. We thank You for Your Spirit of love and mercy upon us.  We thank You also for Your Spirit of conviction upon us and for giving us the chance to repent from our ways.  

You, Lord, are forgiving and good, abounding in love to all who call to You.
Be pleased with our repentance Lord, teach us your ways so we can know You and continue to find favor with You Father.  Remember that this nation is Your people. We are one nation, under God. We have been founded upon Your name Lord. We praise You Father for keeping Your hand upon us, for never leaving or forsaking us. 


In Jesus name we pray

Blessings

Thank You Lord for Your blessings on my family. My children prosper and do well in all things because of You. Thank You for blessing them with good and perfect health. You cause their soul to prosper and go forward in Your ways.  Thank You for using them for Your glory while they are here on this earth Lord.

You’re the One who inspires them and keeps them on track. You light their path so they can see and walk in truth with You Father. You give them knowledge and wisdom in Your ways. Your love teaches, Your voice calms and Your word brings peace. They have found not only eternal life through You, but receive favor also.

Thank You Father for drawing my loved ones to Your heart, thereby giving them freedom to obtain peace, abundance, grace, mercy, wisdom, understanding and all Your endless goodness. My heart is blessed to see they are faithful and obedient to You. I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth! It brings peace to my soul knowing they are with You Father.

I give You all the glory and honor in Jesus' name.

I Will Walk in Your Ways Father



Lord, I will not be afraid of sudden fear, nor of the destruction of the wicked when it comes. You bring me peace. You're my protector, my security and confidence.  You are always at my side helping me walk in Your ways. Your word keeps me in the light on the right path.

I will not keep from doing good to those who deserve it when it's in my power to help them. You have given me love, I can give love. You have given me forgiveness, I can forgive. You have given mercy, compassion, kindness and patience; therefore, I too, can give these. I will not put off until tomorrow what I can do today for others, for tomorrow may never come. 
 
I don’t plan harm against my neighbor who lives peaceably besides me. This is not Your will. I will not accuse anyone for no reason when they have not treated me wrong. Strife is not in my heart. I do not envy a violent person, nor desire any of his ways. I choose Your peaceful ways Lord because I know You detest wicked people, but are a friend to the upright. You curse the house of the evil, but bless the home of the righteous. You scorn the arrogant scoffers and oppose the proud, but You give grace and favor to the humble and afflicted.

The ones who listen to Your words will inherit honor and glory, You bring divine favor to the wise. They shine like the brightness of heaven but fools receive disgrace.

Lord, I hunger for Your wisdom, reveal Your heart to me. Let me live in Your presence God and rest in Your goodness. Hold my hand tightly as we walk. Lead me, I'm Yours. Jesus,You are my life.  

Amen

This prayer is based on Proverbs 3:25-35

Your Wisdom is Precious to Me



I will not forget Your teaching Lord, my heart keeps Your commandments because I know they bring me long life, peace and prosperity.  I bind Your kindness, truth, love and faithfulness around my neck- they are written deep in my heart; therefore, I have favor in Your eyes and the eyes of man.
 

I trust in You with all my heart and I don’t lean on my own understanding.  I acknowledge You in all my ways and You make my paths straight.  My own ways are not wise Lord, I turn away from evil for this brings health and healing to my body and strength and nourishment to my bones.


Because I honor You with my possessions and best parts of all my income, You bring me abundance and fullness in all I need.  All my provisions overflow from Your goodness. I have no lack.


I do not despise Your discipline Lord and I am not upset when You correct me because I know that You love me, You are my Father and You delight in me.


Your wisdom brings blessings to those who find it. I will continually seek You Father. I will always look deeper into Your word so I can gain understanding of who You are that I might see Your heart. Knowing You is far more precious than silver or gold, it is beyond the price of rubies or any jewel on this earth.  Nothing shines or sparkles like Your love Lord, Your wisdom is so valuable to me.  Nothing I desire compares to You.


The wisdom You bring offers me eternal life, heavenly riches and honor.  Its ways are so pleasant and sweet. Your wisdom shows me peaceful paths. I embrace the tree of life You have placed before me, Your wisdom blesses me, I will hold it tightly. 
 

By wisdom, You laid the foundations of the earth. By understanding, You set the heavens in place. With Your words, You created everything! By Your knowledge, the deep waters were divided and the skies drop down the dew.


I will not let wisdom and understanding out of my sight; I will keep hold of Your teachings and use them for Your glory Lord. They are life to my soul and grace to my neck. They bring health to my whole body.  I can walk in confidence and my foot does not stumble. I lie down and I am not afraid, peace is with me and my sleep is sweet and pleasant.

Thank You Father for teaching me.

This prayer is based on Proverbs 3:1-24
