Kiss the Face of God

When a tiny child wants to show you his love, sometimes he will put his forehead on your forehead, his nose against yours, look you straight in the eyes and give you sugary slobbers right on the lips. Getting a little older, being thankful or excited about something, the child will quickly and sweetly plant a kiss on your cheek. Growing even more and having a deep rooted love, the kiss comes on your forehead or even on top of the head, saying I love and cherish you. 

As the Lord's child, we can do the same to our Father.  When our heart tells His heart we love Him, we are kissing His face.  Being thankful shows our affection towards Him and touches His heart. When we have conversations with our Father, spend time with Him, give Him our love and undivided attention, we are kissing His face. Studying His Word and putting Jesus first brings Him delight as does praising, worshiping and praying.  Recognizing the fact that He is who He is pleases our Father.  Just being His child brings Him joy. The Lord rejoices over His children.

~You don't have to settle for touching My garment, you have already touched My heart~

Go ahead, kiss the face of God

We are Yours Father, Let Us Know Your Love

When I think of all of this, all You do and have done for me and my loved ones Lord, I fall to my knees and bow my heart, and pray to You Father, Creator of everything in heaven and earth. We are all Yours, we are all Your children. Our heritage is from You Father, we get our true name from You.  

I pray that from Your glorious, unlimited resources You empower us with inner strength through Your Holy Spirit. Let Christ make His home within our heart as we trust Him. May our faith increase daily. I pray our roots grow deep down into Your love and keep us strong Lord. Father be our Rock and foundation. Go before us and guide us. Give us power to understand, as all Your children should - how wide, how long, how high, and how deep Your love is for us. Remind us who You are Father and who we are in You; we are Your chosen generation and royal priesthood. We are a holy nation and Your own special possession. We can show forth Your glorious and wonderful deeds; we can display Your goodness and virtues and perfections. You alone are the One who called us out of the darkness and into the marvelous Light. You love us so much that You sent Your Son to die for us- to set us free from sin and destruction. 

May we experience the superior love of Christ, though it is far too great to understand fully. Your love is so vast that it is beyond our knowledge and comprehension but I know we will be made complete by Your love with all the fullness of life and power that comes from You Lord.   

In the name of Jesus

You Are My Help

I lift my eyes to You Father;  I look to Your Holy Place. I seek Your face and desire Your presence in all I do.  I know my help comes from You alone, Maker of heaven and earth.  It doesn’t come from anywhere, anything, or anybody else.  You are my provider, comfort, peace, strength and healer. My heart trusts in You Father. You are my everything Lord, my all in all.  You will not let my foot slip for I know Your Holy Spirit guides me daily. You are the lamp unto my feet and light unto my path. I thank You for direction Father. You never sleep or slumber so I am confident Your eyes are always on me and I am safe. The ones You love are always in Your heart. You’re my shade, my keeper, and my protection and I will not be harmed in the daylight, or the night time.  Being my strong tower, You keep me from all harm.  Thank You Father for watching over me my entire life, from before I was born until You take me home. Lord, You created me even before I came to into this earth and You planned my eternal destination.  I praise You Jesus ~ You are my salvation!

The Marriage Prayer

Thank You Lord for the union of these two hearts. I pray they are encouraged and joined together with Your love, so that they may have all the blessings and riches resulting in the knowledge and understanding of Your mysterious plan, which is Christ Himself. Your Light has shined in their hearts giving them knowledge of Your glory God. Your plan for their life together is prosperity, goodness, peace and safety and not plans of evil, harm or chaos. You have plans of giving them a future filled with hope and expectancy.

Father, give them revelations daily so they can know You better, enlighten the eyes of their heart so they can see the hope and plans that You have called to them, and the riches of Your glorious blessings You have in store for their marriage.

You have given this couple the Spirit of power and love and a sound mind. I know Your Spirit rests on them, the Spirit of Wisdom and Understanding, Counsel and Might, the Spirit of Knowledge and of the Fear of You Lord.

You have built their family and I know You are going to perfect and complete the work that You have started in their lives until the day of Jesus Christ. Lord You are the strong foundation they build their lives upon. Let them call upon You in times of joy and times of trials. They are like trees planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth fruit in it’s season; their leaves will never wither; and whatever they do prospers. Remind them they can do all things through Christ who strengthens them. Let them seek Your Kingdom and righteousness first God, in every situation, and You will add all things unto them.

You have given them faith, hope, and love. The greatest of these is love. These will all last forever. I know the love of Christ is within them and this love is within the union You have given them.

Lord, help this couple be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of Your love between them. I pray they make every effort to keep themselves united in Your Spirit, bound together with Your peace.

Father, remind them daily how beautiful and flawless they are in Your eyes. Continue to teach, lead and guide their every step so they can walk on Your path and in Your love with You and growing with love for each other.

I thank You Jesus for the sweet bond You have placed between their hearts and for keeping them in each others joy. I know You will keep Your hand upon this marriage as they walk side by side with each other and with You God, for a triple braided cord in not easily broken.

Thank You for binding their hearts with Your love. I pray their marriage is overshadowed by Your peace, joy and protective love from this day forth in the mighty name of Jesus.

Rock the Boat

If you rock the boat, you can fall in… Don't be afraid! Go ahead – jump in, go deeper than you ever have. Don't become too comfortable or complacent where you are at. I am in the depths of the sea. Keep diving. Go further and further. Stretch your faith more than ever before. Come closer and closer to Me. There is nothing that will harm you. It is impossible to be touched by the enemy when you are with Me. There are no temptations, no evil, nothing to hurt you or lead you astray. Just My hand. Me and My hand. Go ahead and exercise your faith.

Let the Healing Begin

People are sick and hurting because of sin.  Sin of their own, sin of another, sin from the past.  Sickness and death come from sin.  It originated in the Garden. 
My plans for you are to live without sin, without pain, without sickness.  You can be cleansed from this when you accept My Word as Truth.  My complete Word.  My every Word.  It is health and healing to the bones, to the body.  It is life to you. 
Forgive the sin done to you.  Let go of the hurt, I can take it.  Release the anger and resentment toward them.  Others hurt because they have been hurt. They make you feel unworthy because they feel unworthy themselves. Realize I love them too.  As soon as you let go, the healing begins.  Let the healing begin.

Rise Up Warriors from this Generation

Lord I pray this generation rises up mightily in Your name. Let them follow in the ways of Your anointed ones, keeping their eyes to upon You. As Elisha asked for a double portion from Elijah, I ask for double portions of Your Spirit poured out upon this generation Lord, double portions of anointing to them. 
Let Your fire be seen through our children, our grandchildren. I declare they take up the elder's mantle Lord. Cover them with the robe of righteousness and garment of salvation. Clothe them in Your armor Father. Guide their hearts and minds daily to be superior warriors for You Father. I call forth the armies of dry bones to live in Your Name Jesus! Let this generation be more than powerful in Your name. Your Kingdom come, Your will be done Lord, on earth just as it is in Heaven- with power, love and sound minds. 
Let our sons and daughters prophesy, let them declare Your mighty Word Father. Holy Spirit speak through our children! Give them Your visions to go forth in You Lord. Let us dream dreams from You. As these last days are upon us, send an urgency into each and every heart to know You as Jesus Christ, our Savior.

Let Your Heart be Healed

In Proverbs 4:20-22 God is saying My son, My child, the one I love-listen to Me, attend to My words– (not everybody else's) bend your ears towards Me. Stretch your ears My way, hear My words and keep them in your mind, let them penetrate your heart and don’t let them depart. God wants you to fill your heart with His Words, know His Word, study it. Keep them always, don’t disregard or ignore them. Keep Jesus in the center of your heart, in the midst. Jesus is God’s Word made flesh. Never let Him go.
When we bring the Word of God in, it causes life to flow and healing to begin. It also washes away sin and replaces it with hope and a new direction. Verse 22 says His words are life to the heart. They are strength for us. His Word is refreshing, encouraging, cleansing and uplifting.

God's Word rebuilds the old weakened things within us and makes us strong again. They are pure joy. His Word heals all wounds– physically and spiritually-it is health to ALL flesh. Allow life to start flowing into you, let God’s Word penetrate you. Our Father intimately examines every heart, Let Him find His Word in you. Let Him see Jesus in you.  Live the life He has intended for you, strong, healthy and prosperous. God’s Word can literally give you a new heart.

Create in me a clean heart, O God; And renew a right spirit within me.

Our Nation's Heart

Have mercy on us God, in Your faithful love and great tender mercies, wipe away our transgressions; wash us clean from our guilt and purify us from our sin. We are well aware of our offenses, our sin is constantly on our mind. 

Against You, and You alone Lord, we have sinned. We have done evil in Your sight and Your sentence against us is just. May Your victory appear when You give judgment.

Lord, we were born guilty, sinners from the beginning. We praise You for forgiveness Father.

We know You delight in the sincerity of our heart and desire the truth from within us. In secret You teach us wisdom, showing us the way. Purify us and we will be clean. Wash us Lord and we will be whiter than snow. After we have been punished, give our joy back to us Father.

Turn Your face away from our sins Lord, wipe away all our guilt. Thank You Jesus for Your blood upon us. Give us a clean heart and renew a right spirit within us God. 

Don't cast us from Your presence or take Your Holy Spirit from us. Restore our joy of salvation and give us a willing and generous spirit Lord. We will teach others the way to salvation and they will repent and return to You.

Psalm 51:1-13

Heal Our Land Father

Lord, I know You see many of Your children humbling themselves, we are on bended knee Father, under Your authority.  You are God Almighty and we are praying to You, there is none higher. We know who our Lord is and we are seeking Your face in these last days. 
God hear our intercession for the beautiful nation that You have given us.  Prayers are going up to You as our Savior Jesus. We are judging ourselves knowing that we have turned from You, forgive our sins Lord. Forgive us for not keeping You first in our heart. We have put our own agendas and desires before You Father, but we now turn back to You, seeking Your ways again.  We want to come back to You and walk on Your path of righteousness and in Your promises and blessings. 
We praise You for forgiveness of those of us who know better and we pray forgiveness for those who do not. Forgive our trespasses, all of our wrong doings. Open eyes and draw hearts to Your ways Father. Use us for Your glory. 
Hear our cries, hear from heaven ~ lift us up. Heal our land God! Mend us, repair us, restore us. Keep Your mighty hand upon us Lord! Our eyes are fixed on You  Abba Father. 
I pray this in Your Sons precious and powerful name, the name of Jesus.

Father, Draw Them

Father, draw my family, friends and loved ones to Your Son. You gave Jesus to us so we that believe in Him wouldn’t have to perish, but have eternal life with You Lord. 
These are the last days, cause the dead to rise again. Cause their hearts of stone to be turned to flesh, cause their eyes to open, and ears to hear. Raise the dry bones Father, give them Living Water. Teach Your lost ones Lord. Speak to them loud and clear ~ all that hear Your voice will come to Jesus. Believing in Him gives us eternal life. 
Lord, draw my loved ones in, call them Father. Bring them home. I pray not one soul is left behind, not one soul perishes Lord.

Your Presence Lord

Being in Your presence Jesus is the most beautiful place conceivable. It’s amazing. It is majestic - a place of safety and protection. Your presence is a passage of peacefulness and contentment. There is no other place like being with You Lord. 
My ultimate goal here on earth is to be with You my King. This is the walk I walk. This is the race I run -to be next to You Jesus. There's nothing more precious than to be embraced by You My Savior. Daily being in Your presence is restful, refreshing and healing. It is holy and joyful. 
You are everything I ever need. In Your glory is abundance, there is no lack; there is forever luscious and fruitful provision. Being in Your presence is always the right path.  
I feel Your presence often Lord and I know it is not just a feeling, it’s a place You want me to stay. Father, help my heart, mind, soul and body seek You every moment of each day.

Prayer for a Godly Husband and Father

Lord thank You for blessing my husband because he doesn’t walk in the counsel of the ungodly, or stand in the way of sinners, or sit in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in Your law Lord; and he thinks of You day and night. He is like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth his fruit in his season; his leaf will not wither; and whatsoever he does will prosper.
    Lord, You are his shield, his glory, and his only hope. You alone can lift his head. He cries out to You Lord, and You hear him from Your Temple.  He lays down and sleeps in peace and wakes up safely, for You always watch over him. 
    He rejoices because he puts his trust in You Father. He shouts for joy because You are defending him. You fill all who love You with Your happiness. Thank You for blessing my godly husband, Lord; for protecting him with Your shield of love.
    He listens to Your voice and You pour out Your spirit of wisdom upon him and make him wise. You send Your good Spirit to instruct him, and You always provide bread from heaven and water for his thirst. 
    His words are wise to his family because they are from You Father, telling of Your wise plan to bring us into the glories of heaven. You Lord are his example, his mentor, his teacher, his everything.  Thank You for giving us such a wonderful man that listens to Your voice.

You Are Worthy Lord!

I praise You Lord, I praise You in the sanctuary and in Your temple, and in the heavens that You made with Your mighty power!  I praise You every time I see the mountains and trees and oceans and flowers, for I know that You have created them.
I praise You for Your mighty works and Your exceeding and excellent greatness! Your magnitude is unequaled in all the universe Lord!
Father, I praise You with the instruments and drums and dancing ~ with stringed instruments and horns, and high sounding cymbals.  I will not be quiet about You Lord.  Help me shout Your name!  
Let everything that has breath give You praise for You are worthy of all honor and glory and praise forever and ever!  
Nothing on earth is more worthy than You are Father! Praise Your holy name Jesus!
