Pulling down strongholds
Lord, we release Your cleansing blood over our minds and hearts. We declare no weapon formed or fashioned against us will prosper.
We rebuke and pull down every stronghold that seems to exalts itself against the knowledge of God and we take every thought captive to obey Christ. Cleanse us with your blood, purify us and renew a right spirit within us.
Help us to position ourselves to hear You because Your Word says Your sheep knows Your voice and we follow only that voice. Quiet the noises around us so we would know it’s You.

Overcoming Trials and Tests
Lord teach us how to worship You in the midst of our pain. Help us to understand that when these test and trials comes, it’s a testing of our faith and it’s only to make us stronger.
I pray that while we are going through these trials, that You remind us daily that you are with us. Wrap your loving arms around us, shield us and protect us from the evil one.
Thank you Lord for loving us and having the patience with us. Even when we mess up, You continue to love us and be faithful to us. Thank you Lord for your mercies and grace toward us. We love You sweet and precious Jesus.

I am a 39 year old single mother of one beautiful daughter. I love to encourage and help people. I just want to be that person God created me to be.
Got a spirit of despair? Well Isaiah 61:3 prescribes a “garment of praise” for your condition. If you’re having trouble putting on that garment today, these words will get you focused on the names and attributes of your Creator. Our God is holy, loving, eternal and amazing beyond our comprehension. Let’s pray these words together and get our eyes off our worldly troubles and on our heavenly Father who deserves our praise!
Abba, Father, you are the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End. You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God. You are my Creator and my Counselor, guiding me daily to make wise decisions. You are my Comforter in sorrow, pain, or distress. I praise you for drawing near to me when I draw near to you. You are El Roi, the God who sees me, and you are Eternal, Lord. You are my heavenly Father, and the father of the fatherless. How great are you and your faithfulness, God, day in and day out.
You are holy, yet you made a way for me to approach you. I praise you for being my Helper, and for your Holy Spirit’s conviction, correction, and protection in my life. You are invisible, but I see you with eyes of faith. You are Jehovah God, and Jehovah Jireh, the One who provides for all my needs. I praise you as my Jehovah Rapha, my God who heals, and for being Jehovah Rah, My faithful Shepherd. You are not just King, but you are King of Kings, and Lord of Lords. And yes, you are Jesus, the name above all names.
With my whole heart I praise you, God. You are Messiah, the soon and coming King. You are omniscient; you know all things. You are omnipresent; everywhere at all times. You are my Peace, my Protector, and the High Priest who became my Redeemer and Sacrifice forever. You died to set me free; you rose again and gave me victory over death. No longer am I enslaved in sin; you are my Salvation, my Rescuer and my Refuge. You give me hope within.
I praise you because you are trustworthy and true. You are my Teacher, and your understanding and wisdom is beyond finite minds; you promise wisdom to me when I ask. You are the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Lord, I love that you delight in me and that you rejoice over me with singing. You know the number of hairs on my head, and you are always thinking of me.
You are preparing a place for me so that one day I will live with you forever. Maybe then—and only then—will I be able to praise you adequately in a way not possible here on earth—the way you truly deserve.
All my love, all my praise to you. Lord, oh, Lord. How excellent is your name in which I pray!
