PRAYER FOR THE HARVEST
Father, in the name of Jesus, we come boldly before Your throne of grace that we may find the boldness, faith and strength we need to be an effective witness and soul winner for the Kingdom of God. May the light of Jesus Christ shine through us, and through our works, our ways, and our words.
Father, You said that the harvest is ripe, but the laborers (or witnesses) are few. You also said that You are looking for laborers who would go into the vineyard of the world and compel the lost to come. We therefore offer and avail ourselves unto You as a witness to send into Your vineyards to help bring in the harvest of souls that are ripe for the Kingdom.
Father, Your Word says that You open doors for us that no man can shut. We pray therefore for doors of opportunity to be opened unto us that we may share the Gospel to the lost. May doors of opportunity be opened to witness to our families, our friends, our loved ones, our co-workers, our neighbors, and all others we encounter throughout the day.
Father, Your Word declares that You are not slack concerning Your promises, but long-suffering; not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance. We therefore ask that You would direct us in our witness through the help of Your Holy Spirit who leads and guides us into all truth, and brings all things to our remembrance.
You shall cause the right scriptures, illustrations, and examples to come to us, that we may be ready always to give an answer to everyone who asks us a reason for the hope that is in us -- and may we always study to show ourselves approved unto You Father; workmen who need not be ashamed, for we shall rightly divide the Word of Truth.
As we open our mouths to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ, may You minister through us, and may we be prepared for Your good work. We pray therefore, for boldness to speak Your Word and testify of Your Son. May utterance be given unto us that we may open our mouths boldly to share Your Word with the lost, and to make known the mystery of the Gospel.
Father, Your Word declares that You have not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and of a sound mind. Therefore, by the power and authority of the name of Jesus Christ, we bind and cast down every spirit of fear and intimidation that would attempt to hinder us from being a productive witness for You and Your Kingdom.
Father, Your Word declares that we have not chosen You, but that You have chosen us, and ordained us, that we should go and bring forth fruit, and that our fruit may remain: that whatsoever we shall ask of You in the name of Jesus, You shall do it for us. For behold, now is the accepted time. Behold, now is the day of salvation. “…And the Lord added to the church daily such that should be saved.” In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
PRAYER FOR MY WIFE
Father, I come boldly before Your throne of grace to lift up my wife before You in prayer. I first of all thank You Father for blessing me with a good woman; a woman full of the Holy Ghost and faith. A woman who loves You with all her heart, soul, strength, and might; a woman who seeks to know You more and more each day; a woman rooted and grounded in the Kingdom of God, and dedicated to pleasing You in every area of her life - spirit, soul, and body. She is first of all faithful to You, and then faithful to me and her family.
Father, I proclaim that my wife is a virtuous woman of God who rises early in the morning to seek Your face on behalf of her family. I pray that you would keep her heart, and allow nothing to come between us or separate her love from You or her family. Bless her in every of her life Lord, and show her daily how to honor You in her attitude and spirit.
Father, I declare that my wife is a woman of virtue, and that her price is far above rubies. My heart does safely trust in her, and she shall do me good and not evil all the days of her life. Strength and honor are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in times to come. She opens her mouth with wisdom, and in her tongue is the law of kindness. Her children and I arise up and call her blessed. She meditates on Your Word day and night and observes to do all that is written therein. She shall therefore have good success in all she does, for You Lord, shall make her way prosperous.
Help me Father to be a good husband unto my wife. Help me to comfort her, protect her, encourage her, support her, and respect her. Help me to always be caring and attentive toward her, and to be the man she needs me to be, in the name of Jesus. Help me to be sensitive to her concerns and to provide for her as I ought to do. Enable me to listen to her heart, and to always be courteous, thoughtful, and encouraging toward her. Help me to protect her and defend her against all harm or insult. Give me the will and energy to share my heart and thoughts with her, knowing that she always has my best interest at heart, and that she will always give me godly counsel. Help me to be kind, appreciative, and loving toward her, and to create a home environment that is peaceful, fun, and enjoyable.
Thank You Father for surrounding my wife with godly individuals who are stepping stones to her becoming a better wife, mother, sister, daughter, and servant. Thank You for helping her to develop strong relationships with other godly women who will provoke her to grow to higher levels in Christ Jesus. She shall prove all things and hold Fast to that which is good.
Separate my wife from all ungodly influences, pressures, and manipulation; both inside and outside of the church. I now release the fire of God to burn out all ungodly ties and connections with any former relationships; whether spiritual, mental, emotional, physical, or carnal. I take authority over her thought life, and I bind all spirits of hurt, rejection, fear, anger, depression, discouragement, oppression, insecurity, and unforgiveness, in the name of Jesus.
Now Father, make me my wife’s help meet and soul mate for life. Help her to know how much I love her Father. Help her to know that I am her companion, supporter, defender, lover and friend. I shall cover her daily with my prayers. Teach me Father, how to take good care of myself and stay attractive to my wife. Help me to never take her for granted, nor neglect her in any way. Help me to avail myself to her spiritually, emotionally, and physically. Grow me into a strong, loving, caring, and affectionate man that she can be proud to call her husband. I shall love my wife as Christ loves the church and gave Himself for it. I shall dwell with her according to knowledge, giving honor to her, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that our prayers be not hindered.
Father, thank You for the gift I have in my wife. I shall love her, lead her, support her, encourage her, fulfill her, and enjoy her all the days of my life, and we shall dwell together in love and unity, and live a long, happy, healthy, prosperous, safe, and godly life together.
In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
PRAYER FOR MY HUSBAND
Father, I come boldly before Your throne of grace to lift up my husband before You in prayer.
I first of all thank You Father for blessing me with a good man; a man full of the Holy Ghost and faith. A man who loves You with all his heart, soul, strength, and might; a man who seeks to know You more and more each day; a man rooted and grounded in the Kingdom of God, and dedicated to pleasing You in every area of his life - spirit, soul, and body. He is first of all faithful to You, and then faithful to me and his family.
Father, I proclaim that my husband is a godly man of valor who rises early in the morning to seek Your face on behalf of his family. I pray that you would keep his heart, and allow nothing to come between us or separate his love from You or his family. Father, give my husband time to know his family, strength to lead his family, and a passion to manage his home. Bless him in every area of his life Lord, and show him daily how to honor You in his attitude and spirit.
Father, confirm the works of my husband’s hands unto Your purpose. I declare that he is a wise steward of our finances and all that we possess, remembering that all things are Yours and entrusted to us for Your purposes. My husband is a just man who walks in his integrity, and his children are blessed after him. Thank You for protecting him physically, mentally, and spiritually; and for giving him the desire to teach and model a godly lifestyle for his family. Thank You for daily instructing him and teaching him in the way he should go; and for giving him peace in every circumstance he encounters. He is a good man who leaves an inheritance to his children, and his children’s children.
Father, I declare that my husband walks in uprightness at all times. He loves goodness, and hates what is evil. He guards his heart with all diligence, knowing that out of it flows the very issues of life. He is swift to hear, slow to speak, and slow to become angry. He meditates on Your Word day and night and observes to do all that is written therein. He shall therefore have good success in all he does, for You Lord, shall make his way prosperous.
According to Your Word, a good man obtains favor from the Lord, but a man of wicked devices will be condemned. In the name of Jesus, I therefore say that my husband has the favor of the Lord upon his life, and goodness and mercy are following him daily. I cancel any wicked devices conspired against him in the name of Jesus, and I render them inoperative and ineffective. My husband is blessed when he comes in and blessed when he goes out. Everything he sets his hands to do shall prosper and succeed, and the good work You have began in him You shall also complete; for the steps of a righteous man are ordered by You, Father. No weapon that forms against my husband shall be able to prosper, and any tongue that rises up against him in judgment, You, Father shall condemn in the name of Jesus.
Father, thank You for surrounding my husband with godly individuals who are stepping stones to him becoming a better husband, father, brother, son, and servant. Thank You for helping him to develop strong relationships with other godly men who will provoke him to grow to higher levels in Christ Jesus. He shall prove all things and hold Fast to that which is good.
Separate my husband from all ungodly influences, pressures, and manipulation; both inside and outside of the church. I now release the fire of God to burn out all ungodly ties and connections with any former relationships; whether spiritual, mental, emotional, physical, or carnal. I take authority over his thought life, and I bind all spirits of hurt, rejection, fear, anger, depression, discouragement, oppression, insecurity, and unforgiveness, in the name of Jesus. I decree that my husband is a man after Your own heart Father—a man who seeks to please You in everything he does.
Now Father, make me my husband’s help meet and soul mate for life. Help him to know how much I love him. Help him to know that I am his companion, supporter, defender, lover and friend. I shall cover him daily with my prayers, and I shall create a peaceful, nonthreatening and enjoyable dwelling place for him to come home to. Teach me Father how to take good care of myself and stay attractive to my husband. Help me to never take him for granted, nor neglect him in any way. Help me to avail myself to him spiritually, emotionally, and physically. Grow me into a creative and confident woman who is rich in mind, soul, and spirit, and make me the kind of woman he can be proud to call his wife.
Father, thank You for the gift I have in my husband. I shall love him, support him, respect him, encourage him, fulfill him, and enjoy him all the days of my life, and we shall dwell together in love and unity, and live a long, happy, healthy, prosperous, safe, and godly life together. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
PRAYER FOR MY FAMILY MEMBERS
Father, we come boldly before Your throne of grace on behalf of our family members, in the name of Jesus. Lord we thank You for them, and we lift them up before You in prayer.
Our family members are strong in the Lord and in the power of His might, and they are delivered and set free from the strongholds of this world. They shall not be conformed to this world, nor the cares of this world, but they are being transformed in their minds and shall be a reflection of the image and likeness of God. Thank You for the complete salvation of their mind, body, and soul, and for covering them afresh and anew each day with Your blanket of love, grace, mercy and forgiveness.
Father, we commit today to look well to the ways of our household. We declare that the members of our family will develop discernment, wisdom, responsibility, and a strong conscience for righteousness. They will not wander into cheating, lying, or mischief, and You will give them insight and spiritual discernment concerning their relationships and activities. You will protect them from all emotional, physical, and spiritual danger, and You will prepare them to be godly, loving, and faithful adults, friends, parents, and spouses. Our family members will develop the discipline of prayer and time in Your Word, and You will bring into their lives godly people and friends who will help them grow in godly living. Thank You Father for keeping them pure and strengthening them against all temptations, in the name of Jesus.
Father, we thank you that our family members will not be victimized in crime, violence, or any plot or trap of the wicked one. They shall not be caught up in addictions of any kind, including drugs, alcohol, pornography, perversion, or any other substance abuse or addictive habits and behaviors. Father, separate our family members from all ungodly influences, pressures, and manipulation; both inside and outside of the church.
We pray for Your wisdom and discernment upon them in choosing their friendships, social activities, entertainment, memberships, surroundings, and any other affiliations that can have an influence and impact on their lives. May they always seek first Your Kingdom and Your righteousness in every venture, opportunity, and endeavor, and may they continually increase in the wisdom, knowledge, and understanding of Your Word, as they continue to walk in the fear of the Lord.
Father, Your Word says that You open doors for us that no man can shut. We pray therefore for doors of opportunity to be opened unto us that we may share the Gospel to our family members who do not know You. We ask that You would direct us in our witness to them through the help of Your Holy Spirit as He causes the right scriptures, illustrations, experiences, and examples to come to us, that we may be a witness to our family with love, compassion, and integrity. Help us to provide a moral foundation and emotional health and healing to our family by valuing and caring for them; and help us Father to live godly lives, and set godly examples for them that will be passed down for generations to come. Teach us to be kind, appreciative, and loving toward each other, and to create a home environment that is peaceful, fun, and enjoyable. Remind us to be patient, and to take the time to understand each other’s perspectives before we speak. We shall be swift to hear, slow to speak, and slow to become angry when dealing with our family, and we shall show mercy toward them, as You, Father have shown mercy toward us.
Now Father, in the name of Jesus, we take authority over ever demonic spirit, every principality, and every spirit of wickedness in high places that has tried to influence our family members in any capacity. We cancel every demonic assignment devised against them, and we pull down every stronghold and deceptive influence or hidden trap that would seek to destroy them. We bind all spirits of hurt, rejection, fear, anger, depression, discouragement, oppression, insecurity, and unforgiveness, in the name of Jesus.
Satan, we now render you and your mission inoperative, ineffective, and useless concerning our family and their purpose. We cancel every negative word ever spoken over them or to them, and we nullify any affects of those words on their lives -- present and future. We break and release them from any generational curses on both sides of the family, and we speak blessings to them and over them, in the name of Jesus.
Thank You Father for Your goodness and mercy that follows our family members all the days of their lives. They shall prove all things and hold Fast to that which is good, that they may live a long, happy, healthy, prosperous, safe, and godly life, in Christ Jesus. “AS FOR ME AND MY HOUSE, WE WILL SERVE THE LORD!” In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
PRAYER FOR SINGLES
Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, I come boldly before Your throne of grace confessing Your Word over my life as a single Christian.
I thank You Father for helping me to live a godly life that is holy, sanctified and set apart for Your use, and prepared for Your good work. I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live; yet it is not I that live, but it is Christ who lives in and through me; and the life which I now live in the flesh as a single Christian, I live by the faith, power and strength of the Son of God who loves me and gave His life for me.
Lord, You said that You would not leave us alone, but that You would send us the Comforter that He may abide with us forever. I pray therefore, that You would fellowship with me daily through the Comforter of the Holy Spirit as I seek after You; and through Him, may I always find peace, joy and contentment in serving You as a single Christian.
Thank You Father for surrounding me with godly friends and family who will encourage me, and provoke me to stay on the straight and narrow path. Surround me with people who will be stepping stones in my life to becoming a better me, and a stronger and more confident child of God. Thank you for separating me from all ungodly influences, pressures, and manipulation, both inside and outside of the church.
By the power and strength of the Holy Spirit, I make a proclamation, THIS DAY, that I am strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might. I will not be drawn away by idleness, worldliness, carnality, or ungodly situations and relationships; nor will I be enticed by lust or sexual temptations. I cast down all spirits of loneliness that would attempt to drive me to ungodly friendships, companionships and sexual relationships, in the name of Jesus.
I now release the fire of God to burn out all ungodly soul ties and connections with any former relationships, whether physical, spiritual, emotional, mental, or carnal. I take authority over my thought life, and I bind all spirits of hurt, rejection, fear, anger, depression, discouragement, bitterness, oppression, loneliness, low self-esteem, and unforgiveness, in the name of Jesus.
Father, I thank You that my life is joyous, exciting, and complete as a single Christian; for You have filled every empty and lonely place in my heart with excitement and fulfillment in serving You and advancing Your Kingdom. I receive the spirit of holiness in my life to walk upright and pleasing before You. Thank You for consuming my thoughts with Your Word, Your will, and Your purpose; and may the meditation of my heart be on things that are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, and of a good report. Now unto Him who is able to keep me from falling, and to present me faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, I thank You.
In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
PRAYER FOR BUSINESSES
Father, we petition You today on behalf of businesses within Living Word International Ministries. Your Word declares, “Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.” We therefore seek first to advance Your Kingdom, and to obey Your commandments. Your Word declares that wealth and riches are in our houses and our righteousness shall endure forever because we fear the Lord and delight greatly in Your commandments. We commit ourselves therefore to honor Your Word by submitting to Your laws and precepts; and because we are Christ’s, we are therefore Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. We shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water that brings forth fruit in its season. Our leaves also shall not wither, and whatsoever we do shall prosper, in the name of Jesus.
Father, Your Word declares that if we would roll our works upon the Lord, and commit and trust them wholly to Him, He will cause our thoughts to become agreeable to His will, and so shall our plans be established and succeed. We therefore roll the works of our businesses upon You Lord, and we seek Your face concerning every detail and course of action. You shall give us direction, strategies, wisdom, and discernment concerning every area, and our businesses shall be a blessing unto the Kingdom of God. As we hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord our God, to observe and to do all His commandments which He commands us this day, the Lord our God will set us on high above all nations of the earth.
We commit ourselves to be faithful stewards of the assets, resources, capital, savings, investments, governance, property, services, partners, and staff of our businesses. As You have instructed us in Your Word Father, we shall remember the Lord our God, for it is You who gives us power to get wealth that You may establish Your covenant which You swore unto our fathers, as it is this day. Therefore, as business owners, we shall be faithful supporters of the mission and call of Living Word International Ministries through giving of our time, talents, tithes, and offerings, in carrying out her God-given assignment world-wide.
Thank You Father for anointing the works of our hands as we conduct business, for You have made all grace abound toward us, so that we, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work; and what things so ever we desire when we pray, because we believe that we have received them, we shall have them. We are therefore crowned with wealth, for the earth is the Lord's, and the fullness thereof.
Father, we commit to bring the tithe of all our increase into Your storehouse as You have commanded us in Malachi, Chapter 3. Therefore, the windows of Heaven shall be opened onto us, and You shall pour out blessings on our lives that we have not room enough to receive. In blessing You will bless us, and in multiplying You will multiply our seed as the stars of Heaven, and as the sand which is upon the seashore. You shall command the blessing upon us in our storehouses, and in all we set our hands to do.
We now break all assignments of the enemy against all businesses within Living Word International Ministries in the name of Jesus. We break all curses of poverty, mammon, lack, debt, and failure, and we rebuke and cast down all spirits of the cankerworm, palmerworm, caterpillar, and locust that would try and eat up our blessings in the name of Jesus. No weapon that forms against our businesses shall be able to prosper, and any tongue that rises up against our businesses, You Father shall condemn, in the name of Jesus. We shall walk by faith and not by sight, and we shall not despise small beginnings, for with You nothing shall be impossible, and all things shall work together for our good. According to Your Word, we shall also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto us, and the light shall shine upon our ways.
Thank You heavenly Father for taking pleasure in prospering us. We now commit our businesses unto You; and we trust also in You, and You shall bring it to pass, in the name of Jesus. This Book of the Law shall not depart out of our mouths; but we shall meditate therein day and night, that we may observe to do according to all that is written therein; for then you shall make our way prosperous, and then we shall have good success.” In Jesus name, Amen!
