Daily Devotional – 10/20/16 “Can I pray for you?”

can-i-pray-for-youOur Father in Heaven whose name is the Holy of Holy.As I come petitioning your throne, I pause to say thank you. Not for one thing, exactly but for everything specifically. Oh God, your people are in need so I come asking you to send a particular blessing to the person reading this. Grant them the request they’ve been crying out for, the answer they’ve been searching for and the peace they’ve been needing. I know you’re a merciful God that can heal, deliver and set free so I ask you to show up, in the midst of their circumstance and do it. For that mother whose still grieving, comfort. The daddy who can’t seem to make it, provide. The sister on the verge of suicide, block it. The brother at the end of his rope, extend it. God, be the mind regulator, the heart fixer, the heavy load carrier, the food when they’re hungry, water when they’re thirsty, joy in a time of trouble, bridge over their troubled waters and a way out of darkness. God, even if they have to suffer, in this season, give them strength to sustain until it’s over. Even if they have to suffer, now, give them what they need to endure because God, someone is fighting a battle and it’s not even theirs. Somebody else is on the edge of give up but has yet to give it over to you. And someone is looking at a negative bank account and still has another week to go.

But today, I declare that nothing shall by any means destroy your children. God, by the power you’ve invested in me, I decree that chains are being destroyed as they read. Doors of bondage are being opened, now, and your child is about to walk free. Suicide, you won’t win. Depression, you can’t win because today, I am crying loud and sparing not the ears of the enemy. God, today, I am crying loud and sparing not the feelings of the enemy, for the freedom of your people. Today, I’m claiming victory for those who can’t for themselves. Do it for her God. Do it for him God. Do it for us God! Blow our minds and do what we need. God, I don’t need the details, I just need the deliverance. Thank you in advance because I believe that it’s being done. You gave me power and so I declare it so! In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost, it shall be!
