Note: My husband Mike wrote this family prayer back in 2017 but it is even more relevant now! Please receive this prayer for strength and encouragement.
Good morning TBYT Family,
As I was preparing to turn in last night, God placed it on my heart to write a TBYT family prayer. Although the prayer below may read as a general prayer, it is far from that as each and everyone of you are covered in Jesus name.
The TBYT Family Prayer
We come before you in the name of Jesus, recognizing you as the one and only true God. You are God alone and the creator of all things in Heaven on Earth and beyond.
We are your children and it is our delight for you to delight in us. Therefore, help us to be all that we can be in you. Find us acceptable in your sight. Lead us and guide us with your Holy Spirit.
On December 31, 2016, we prayed and proclaimed that you would be prominent in each of our lives this year and that we would strive to accomplish the tasks that you have set before us in the natural and in the Spiritual.
It seems like only yesterday that we submitted that prayer to You Father and my how the years have passed!
We quickly realized that as we got busy being about YOUR business, the enemy got busy being about his. Nonetheless, we know there is no weapon he can create that will defeat your people based on your Word:
“No weapon formed against you shall prosper, And every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn.”Isaiah 54:17 (NKJV):
Armed with that knowledge of truth, we shall walk through this day and every day with joy, peace, power, boldness, strength, and praise because we know the days have already been fashioned for us and we will determine what type of day it shall be by Your Power and Your Might.
“…your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them.”Psalms 139:16 (NKJV)
We already know that with every temptation and fiery dart that the enemy may throw at us, You have already made a way of escape:
- If that escape route is to say nothing, then we shall keep silent and allow you to work in our life.
- If that escape route is to run as Joseph ran; watch our dust!
- If that escape route is to push the plate away then push away we shall.
- If that escape route is to pray, we shall pray without ceasing.
- If that escape route is to sing praises to you, then let our voice be a sweet sound in your ears.
Anoint the reader of this post and let them know that you are fully aware of what they are going through and that you have already dispatched angels (specific angels) to help manifest their prayers in the area that they are hurting the most.
Help them to understand that you can and will do exceedingly and abundantly more than they can ask or think on.
Whether their area of discomfort is in health, they and their family members shall be healed according to your Word.
Finances, lack of employment, unruly children, strained relationships, broken marriages, governmental obstructions, and reformed criminal trespasses are nothing to You and you shall restore your people in these areas.
Now my Father, these words are my typed words of prayer as your Holy Spirit has inspired me to type. Nonetheless, unless you manifest the end results of this prayer, they are words that are easily typed to fit any and all situations.
Therefore, my Lord manifest your greatness even now on behalf of Your people; NOT so that we can believe because we already believe, but rather that your people will be edified and You be Glorified in this earth, this day.
In the meantime, we shall continue to give you all the praise, honor and glory in the mighty majestic name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
