Prayer Topic #15:
A Declaration of Kingdom Prayer and Faith
Scripture Reading: Psalm 145; Mark 11:22-24
Reflections of the Heart:
Faith and prayer are the vitamins of the soul; man cannot live in health without them.
Eternal Father, we thank You for being in relationship with us. As Your children, we thank You for the opportunity that we have to join together today to pray. Thank You for drawing us into Your Holy family through the meritorious works of Jesus Christ. Thank You for creating us to be kings of The King and lords of The Lord. Thank You, Father, for sending us the Holy Spirit to lead and guide us on this faith walk. The heavens proclaim Your glory and the skies display Your craftsmanship. Lord, we will praise You with our whole hearts. We will tell of all the marvelous things You have done. We will be filled with joy because of You. We will sing praises to Your Name, O Most High.
Righteous Father, as citizens of Your Kingdom, we are righteous people who live by faith. We will trust in You with all of our hearts and not depend on our own understanding. We will seek Your will in all that we do and, in every situation, we will trust that You will show us which path to take. We will strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. We will run with endurance the race that You have set before us; keeping our eyes on Jesus, the Champion, who initiates and perfects our faith. Lord, we confess that we will continue to seek Your Kingdom above all else, live righteously, and trust that You will give us everything that we need. Father God, we know that You are not a man that You should lie, nor the son of man that You should repent. So, we will stand on Your Word and put all of our faith and confidence in You. We declare, as Kingdom citizens, that we will trust You with our finances, families, jobs, businesses, relationships and every other area of our lives. We confess that our works will reflect the faith that we have in You, our Father.
What actions will I take to increase my faith and prayer life?
Holy Spirit, please help us to relinquish control to You to lead our lives. Help us to transform the way we think by meditating on the Word, so that we will fully embrace and walk in our Kingdom authority and rights. As ambassadors, help us make prayer a high priority in our lives, so that Your Kingdom is advanced. Give us the power to say no to the distractions that keep trying to steal our time with God. Remind us that nothing is a higher priority than the time we spend every day in prayer. Holy Spirit, please show us all those areas in our lives where our faith is faltering and reveal the tools that we need to increase our faith in those areas. Lord, there are some who have had so many disappointments in life that they have a hard time walking by faith. Holy Spirit, please help them to get the help they need to process those disappointments and heal those internal wounds so that they can begin to walk in their Kingdom authority.
Compassionate Father, please forgive us for not having complete faith in You at all times. Forgive us for having more faith in ourselves, our jobs, our finances, our gifts and talents and other people than we do in You. Forgive us for at times walking in doubt and unbelief. Forgive us for harboring dead faith. Holy Spirit, remind us of those we need to forgive and help us to be quick 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 us all not to yield to temptation but deliver us from the evil one.
Triumphant Lord, all glory belongs to You, who alone are God. All glory, majesty, power and authority are Yours before all time and in the present and beyond all time! In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
