The Prayer of Faith James 5:13-16 (NIV)
"13 Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise. 14 Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven. 16 Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective."
As we stand here on day two praying and fasting together, standing in the gap for one another, in unity, we claim the victory! We are righteous through Jesus Christ, and our prayer is powerful and effective. As we knock on the door and lay our petitions at His feet, we know He will answer.
We stand together praying for
Our health and that of our children and family members
To become homeowners
To become automobile owners
To be healed
To become the head and not the tail
Our blood-bought birthrights
Holy Ghost power
An Abundance of Favor
To be chosen by You
To be Called
A closer relationship with God
and a host of other things.
We have had our weary days, we have weathered many storms, and those days are over! Everything we are asking for we shall receive! God has opened the door for us! What a wonderful feeling to not only have Him open the door but to be received by Him.
It's time for increase and elevation! Are you ready for some things to fall off so you can be lifted up? It is time to hold out your hands to receive your blessings! Are you ready? We are praying in faith, and God is anointing our heads with oil! We have the power of God upon us! The Holy Ghost is upon us! We are praying in faith and activating a blessing and the power of God!
We know that God will grant us our miracles! We know that Jesus Christ stands before us!
We are burying old things and walking into new favor!
When we knock on the door, He answers!
Eternal Father in Heaven, thank You for all You are in my life. Father, I thank You for the words to say in my prayer. I thank You for the petitions to make. I thank You for opening the door when I knock. I Thank you for when I write my plans down and make them plain; You honor it. Today, I stand in the gap for everyone participating in this corporate fast and prayer in Grandma's Corner. I ask that You give each and everyone preferential treatment throughout their lives for being obedient. Be the pilot of their life. I ask that You cover their homes, family, loved ones, and children in Your blood. Hold their hands throughout this journey we call life. Cover every fiber in their being. Allow this season in their life to be full of joy, favor, happiness, wealth, good fortune, and good health. Honor their petitions.
In the name of Jesus, Father, cover everyone in the jails, hospitals, homeless shelters, that have a mental illness, cancer, and Covid.
In Jesus' name, I pray, Amen.
