reconciliation is a sweet panacea for hurt

reconciliation is a sweet panacea for hurt


As you begin the new year, it is important to begin having first been reconciled with Christ and secondly to your foes and friends. You deny yourself blessings by failing to forgive or being reconciled to others. Expect no mercy from God if you can’t show mercy. I couldn’t get a better prayer than the Prayer for Graciousness Towards Others one written below by Gordon MacDonald (Easter 2006). (It is written in the American context, but the principles of understanding gracious reconciliation should still be evident no matter what your context.)
Heavenly Father,
Help me remember that the jerk who cut me off in traffic last night is a single mother who worked nine hours that day and is rushing home to cook dinner, help with homework, do the laundry and spend a few precious minutes with her children.
Help me to remember that the pierced, tattooed, disinterested young man who can’t make change correctly is a worried 19 year old college student, balancing his worry over final exams with his fear of not knowing what to do with life.
Remind me, Lord, that the scary looking bum, begging for money in the same spot every day (who really ought to get a job, Lord!) is a slave to addictions and mental illness that I can only imagine in my worst nightmares.
Help me to remember that the old couple walking annoyingly slow through the store aisles and blocking my shopping progress is a couple that is savoring this moment, knowing that, based on the biopsy report she got back last week, this could be one of the last trips to the store together.
Heavenly Father, remind me that sooner rather than later I will breath my last.
Remind me each day that life is too short to stay angry.
Remind me that you see us all as precious and that I should see everyone that way too. Remind me that it is not enough to share that love with those we hold dear. Let me be slow to judge and quick to forgive.
Remind me, O Lord, to live and love just as Jesus did.
In the name of the One who took your anger so we wouldn’t have to. Amen

i wish you all the lord's blessings

I have just had a session before the Lord in prayer. I asked Him to guide what to put down today in my blog, then He led me to passionately pray for the many people who have been visiting my blog and those who have been following, including those who shall read in coming months or years. I have laid this prayer before my God, and I know He is faithful to fulfill it. If you believe it just say AMEN, or pray it back. The prayer goes like this:

  • I thank you father for the many friends you have given me in this blog, including those who have been visiting. Thank for making them part of me.
  • Father I pray that you shall bless them abundantly.
  • I pray for those who have not received your son Jesus Christ as their personal savior that you may draw them to you by your grace and mercy
  • I pray that they may know you as the only true God and savior
  • I pray that you shall deliver them all from the schemes of the devil
  • Father I ask that they will grow from one glory to another, and that they will hunger and thirst for you always
  • Direct their feet in ways of righteousness, and help them abhor all manners of wickedness
  • Some of them father are struggling with sins that easily entangle them, deliver them my God. Cause them to overcome and to detest their sinful ways
  • Some are at the point of making critical decisions, may you give them wise counsel
  • Some of them are at a point of giving up, help them see your hand guiding them and stretched to pick them up, even to forgive and guide them
  • Let the words spoken against them be nullified, and let everything written against them by their enemies be cancelled in Jesus name. let every tongue that rises against them in condemnation be silenced today in Jesus name
  • Give them a spirit of wisdom and understanding, as well as discernment
  • Holy Spirit of God, guide, teach and instruct them. May they find you a dear friend always
  • Father I pray for those whom the enemy has imprisoned, bound, yoked, and set in dark dungeons, that you deliver them by the power in your name
  • Let the pits that have been dug before them be filled, and let the barriers that have stood before them crumble in Jesus name. be the light unto their paths always
  • Send forth your word and your truth upon each one of them
  • Teach them to rely and put their trust in you, teach their hands to wage war against their enemies
  • May your favour overshadow them, o my God
  • Let the doors closed before them by their enemies be opened, and let those that have been opened be closed
  • Establish them in righteousness, be their solid foundation
  • Let every evil hidden before them be revealed, and let their enemies be frustrated
  • Some have entered into evil covenants with or without their knowledge, deliver them
  • I pray that they shall be transformed from one glory to another, into the image of your son Jesus Christ
  • I pray that they shall be bold, and shall not feel ashamed to testify you before men
  • Open doors to speak your word to your servants
  • Father I pray that they shall exemplify Christ-like character wherever they shall serve you, and your name shall be praised through their good deeds
  • Anoint them afresh, and fill them with love, joy, peace, praise, self control, kindness holiness and all the good that come from your presence
  • May their light shine brighter and brighter like a new day.
  • Extend their territories, and lead them to the destiny you have called each one of them to. Arise and meet every power that fights against their destiny today in Jesus name
  • There is a lot to pray for them father, I know you love them, overshadow them with your love, and father I pray that by your grace and mercies, one day one time, we shall all meet together in glory, to live with you forever.
  • I bring all these issues before your throne of mercy, in the name of your loving son Jesus Christ
  • AMEN

Setting the mind free in prayer

 

The mind is the most crucial part where spiritual battles are fought. Advanced Learners Dictionary defines the mind as the part of a person, usually considered to be the brain that they use to think and imagine things. A Christian needs to protect herself from the ‘fiery arrows’ from demonic spirits which continually shoot wicked arrows to ruin our lives. Paul says that we should put on the helmet of salvation. The helmets work is to secure the head, where the brains are. We need to stand with Scripture and use the weapons we have to conquer the enemy.

The scripture says;

1Pe 1:13Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ

2Ti 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

Php 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

Eph 4:23And be renewed in the spirit of your mind

Ro 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Eph 6:16Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. (KJV)

Signs of a mind that is under attack

  • Unable to carry out prayers/ difficult in prayers
  • Feeling sleepy at odd hours.
  • Mental sickness
  • Severe headaches/ unexplainable migraines
  • Mind blankness/short circuiting of the mind eg You become blank while making a presentation and can’t coordinate
  • Sudden unexplainable drop in performance
  • Not understanding or remembering anything you have learned
  • Inability to concentrate and read the bible
  • Frequent loss of consciousness
  • Feeling ‘things’ crawling or moving in your head
  • Dreaming when your mind is being attacked etc

John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. (KJV)

 10 The thief does not come except to steal and to kill and to destroy. I have come so that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. (MKJV)

So what does the devil do with your mind? His main idea is to do the above: Steal, kill and destroy.

He comes to imprison your mind, demonize your mind, release curses upon your mind, bewitch it, put yokes upon it, surround your mind with bands of wickedness, place evil covenants upon it, plant evil seeds upon your mind, put embargo’s, cause your mind to be averse to scripture, release poisonous arrows, pollute your mind, place padlocks upon your mind, put evil cages, do brain transfer, bring spiritual demotion, bring spiritual downgrading, bring spiritual blankness, bruise your mind, allow serpents and scorpions to terrorize your mind etc etc

Does this scare you? No it should not. We have mighty weapons at hand. God has given us great weapons which are always at our disposal

2Co 10:4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) {through God: or, to God}  (KJV)

 4 For the weapons of our warfare are not fleshly, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds, (MKJV)

You need to arise and be offensive to the enemy. Repent any sin in your life that might have opened a door to the enemy. You open the door through the five senses: though what you see, touch, feel, smell, hear & taste, and I must add, through your spirit. Have you allowed your spirit to be controlled by the devil, like being involved in Satanism at one time in life?

Secondly, ask the LORD to wash and cleanse you. Craft prayer bullets like the ones below to attack the enemy. Also put on the whole armor of God. This will put you in a defensive mode. You can choose to pray all the prayer bullets below or the ones you feel quickened by the Holy spirit to pray  for.

  • O Lord arise and take over the gates of my mind, in Jesus name
  • I take power and authority in Jesus name, and I destroy every weapon forged against my mind in Jesus name
  • I uproot every evil arrow and every evil seed planted in my mind in Jesus name
  • I wipe every satanic pollution & poison upon my mind in Jesus name
  • I destroy every satanic cage placed upon my mind, and I withdraw my mind from every satanic prison and coven in Jesus name
  • Power of God arise, and set my mind free from every satanic manipulation
  • I destroy all pots of manipulation operating against my mind in Jesus name
  •  I retrieve my mind back by Fire in Jesus name
  • I renounce and destroy every covenant that works against my mind, in the name of Jesus
  •  I have the mind of Christ. Every part of my mind that is not of Christ, die now in Jesus name
  • I cancel every word and every spell released upon my mind in Jesus name
  • I destroy all satanic embargo’s and bands of wickedness surrounding me in Jesus name
  • Every padlock upon my mind, I unlock you now in Jesus name
  • My mind, receive promotion and upgrading in Jesus name
  • I command every snake and scorpion operating against my mind to die in Jesus name
  • I break every satanic hand over my mind in Jesus name
  • Every evil anointing over my mind, melt away in Jesus name
  • O Lord, anoint my mind with the power of the Holy Ghost in Jesus name
  • Arise my mind and love the LORD

RELEASING BLESSINGS

Proverbs “The tongue has the power of life and death, those who love it will eat its fruit” NKJV

Your yesterday will not be your today. God has a good plan for you today.  God has placed in you the ability to declare the blessings of your day by your tongue, and eat its fruit.

  • The Lord will make my enemies who will rise against me flee in seven directions. Deut 28
  • I refuse to walk in the counsel of the wicked, I refuse to stand in the way of sinners nor sit with mockers. Ps 1:1
  • The lord is my shepherd; he will lead me, guide me and instruct me in the best pathways of my life. Ps 23,32:8
  • My feet and mind will direct me to my destiny, as the Lord leads. Ps 119;105
  • The goodness of the Lord will follow me today. Ps 23
  • My mind will be obedient to the Lord, and will not allow wicked thoughts to dwell in it. Phil 4:8
  • Today I will be the head and not he tail. Deut 28
  • This day I drink the cup of blessings, and I declare the favour of the Lord will be upon me. 1 Cor 10:16, Ps 102:13
  • In the name of Jesus Christ I declare and believe. AMEN
