Daily Devotional – 6/6/17 “Let’s pray!”

Sickness is running rampant and it is closing the mouths of intercessors. Brain functions are being suddenly stopped in the lives of those who are crying loud and sparing not. Depression is devouring those who are devoted. Heart attacks and strokes are on the rise, in the faithful. Turmoil is shaking the core of tithe payers. Men are dying by strokes. Women are closing their eyes by way of aneurysms. Pastors were the ones who used to be hit the hardest but now it is the spouses. The children of worship leaders are being led astray by the enemy because he feels if he cannot get you, he will get them; they are vulnerable. If you don’t believe me, scroll Facebook and see how the RIP posts have increased. Baby, if you don’t think it is time to put your war cry to use, walk the streets. If you don’t think it is time to hold healing services, visit the hospital. If you don’t think some real deal revival is needed, call somebody. It is time out for the usual whooping, we need some for real worship. It’s time out for the running and bucking, we need some rebuking and decreeing. Yes, your squall is on point but where is the sanctification. Yea, you dress real pretty but where is the deliverance? Yes, your church website is fancy but where is the witness?

Let us pray …

Our God in Heaven,

As I petition your throne, I first thank you for being our master, sustainer, provider, way maker and faith writer. God, this morning I come before you praying for the church body, not the building but the people because we need healing. God, we need strength. We need you to send a fresh wind of worship, a new sound of sanctification and an acquaintance of the anointing. God, give new messages to old messengers. Take some remnants of brokenness and mend them to proclaim your word because we need a revival. Use unordinary people to go into unordinary places. Use women to stand in places men said they would not to call forth your power. Open the mouths of prophetic and shut the mouths of the pathetic. Open the mouths of the intercessors and close the mouths of the instigators. Send a fresh word to ministry leaders everywhere so they may reach your people, especially the youth and young adults. Use me, God, even the more. Make room for me at tables that don’t even serve what I eat because I know you’ll fill me up. Open doors to rooms they said women couldn’t go. Fill me, we, us and them with the anointing so that it introduces us before we get there. You make the way for your word to go forth. Pay the tuition for those of us to be better equipped for battle. Erase debts, cure sickness, send donors for organ surgeries, finance schools and fill the need of worship places that serve you in spirit and in truth. We need it and we need it now. Do it God because you can and will.
