Song: Freedom Is Coming/ Hillsong Young & Free
Scripture: (Matthew 5:13, AMPC)
“You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste (its strength, its quality), how can its saltiness be restored? It is not good for anything any longer but to be thrown out and trodden underfoot by men.”
Prayer: Jesus, help us to co-labor with you! We are to be salt creating savory conversations and be the sweet aroma of Jesus everywhere we go, touch and influence. In order to be salty, we must pray and stand against evil. Encourage us to be a light to shine in the dark places in society. Help us, Lord, to be both salt and light in our changing culture. Help us, Father, to hold tightly to you and your Word. There is a billion-soul harvest coming, and these new believers will want and need to be discipled! Help us to be salt-filled people who desire to reveal you, your unconditional love, life, and joy with others inside and outside of the church! In you, Jesus, we pray to be salty influencers. Amen.
Decree out loud: I decree as believers of Christ; we are salt and light in society. I declare our purpose and calling are becoming more apparent to us today, and we will fulfill what God has commissioned us to do. I decree we will be His light-bearers bringing hope, knowledge, and understanding to those seeking Jesus. I declare we will shine Jesus’ love and life brightly, emanating His truth into the darkness. I decree we will have a salty influence wherever we step foot.
Prophetic encouragement: I see the light of Jesus shining brightly on His followers. I see the salt and light of your witness bringing freedom and hope to the not-yet-saved! I see and hear the awakened ones of this rising generation of Jesus lovers and His miracles, signs, and wonders going out as they share the gospel. All glory to Jesus, the author, and perfecter of our faith!
