Prayer Topic #9:
A Declaration of Favor for The Prayer Institute
June 8, 2018
Reflections of the Heart:
“Prayer is a supernatural vehicle created by God that allows natural human beings to communicate with Him and for Him, so that His plans for our lives — which reside with Him in the supernatural can be brought to fruition in the natural realm.” ~ Suzette Caldwell
Great Father, we thank You for giving Pastors Kirbyjon and Suzette Caldwell the vision for The Prayer Institute. Thank You for the awesome platform it has given to prayer, as it is such a vital discipline for every believer. Thank You for the wonderful board members, staff and diligent volunteers You have assembled together to maintain the operations of The Prayer Institute. O Lord, when we think of Your goodness and boundless kindness toward The Prayer Institute, we cannot help but to erupt in high praise! Your awe-inspiring deeds will be on every tongue as we proclaim Your greatness. Everyone will share the story of Your wonderful goodness and sing with joy about Your righteousness. We worship You, Father. We take joy in being in Your presence.
Strong and Mighty Father, we decree that You are the source of hope for The Prayer Institute. Favor surrounds The Prayer Institute like a shield. We declare abundant blessings and favor upon the staff. We also declare Your abundant blessings and favor upon the Board of The Prayer Institute. We command doors of unprecedented opportunities to open this year for The Prayer Institute. We decree that as they serve Your people, Lord, their good deeds will shine out for all to see, causing people everywhere to give You praise. In faith, we expect You to expand the influence and reach of The Prayer Institute. We believe that the Holy Spirit will ignite more and more people to desire a richer and more powerful prayer life, as The Prayer Institute goes forth in ministry. We declare that Your vision for The Prayer Institute will continue to be revealed in the hearts and minds of its leaders and that they will faithfully carry it out according to Your will. We decree that every need will be met according to Your riches in glory.
How has The Prayer Institute personally impacted your life?
Holy Spirit, we ask that You draw The Prayer Institute’s staff and volunteers closer together in the spiritual unity that is only found in Jesus Christ. Let the same mind be in them that was also in Him. Help them to spot problems and issues quickly and to be spiritually wise and discerning as they seek to solve them. Remind them to take good care of themselves and to not neglect their own spiritual, emotional, and physical care. Keep them balanced in their public and private lives so they are efficient and effective in all that they do. Draw the right people to invest their time, talent, and finances. Protect The Prayer Institute from any plans the enemy may have to hinder the good works that they do. We ask that You flood them with faithful benefactors who will give to the services they provide to the Body of Christ and to the community.
Redeeming Father, please forgive The Prayer Institute’s staff and volunteers of any sins they have committed. Forgive them for any time that they have grown complacent in the work You have assigned them to do. Forgive those who have been neglecting themselves and their families and not taking time to rest and reflect. Forgive those who speak evil against The Prayer Institute. Forgive those who have not fulfilled their commitments to The Prayer Institute. Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that You have committed). Holy Spirit, remind The Prayer Institute’s staff and volunteers of all those they need to forgive and help them to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal names or faces of people that You may need to forgive. As He reveals them, say, “I forgive name of person(s).” Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in Your soul caused by unforgiveness.)
Holy Spirit, help the staff and volunteers of The Prayer Institute not to yield to temptation but deliver them from the evil one.
Magnificent Lord, You are robed in majesty and armed with strength. The world stands firm and cannot be shaken. You are worthy, O Lord our God, to receive glory and honor and power. You created all things and they exist because You created what You pleased. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Today, I will trust God to:
