Song: Wait Upon The Lord/ Leeland
Scripture: 2 Samuel 22:1-3 (NIV)
“David sang to the Lord the words of this song when the Lord delivered him from the hand of all his enemies and from the hand of Saul. He said: “The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation. He is my stronghold, my refuge and my savior—from violent people you save me.”
Prayer: Jesus, the world has become very unsafe, and violence and hatred seem to be all around us. You tell us in Genesis 8:21, “every inclination of the human heart is evil from childhood.” God, what hope do we have but to depend on you for help and receive Jesus as our Lord and Savior! Lord, we repent of our sins and draw near to you right now. Thank you for Jesus and the peace He brings His beloved followers! Help us to overcome evil with your goodness and love. Thank you that those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God; these are the ones who overcome the world. (1 John 5:5) Lord, help us to be overcomers, looking to you as our fortress, our rock, our shield, and salvation! Thank you for sending your holy, angelic protection around your beloved people. It’s in the mighty and most powerful Name of Jesus Christ, our rescuing King, that we pray and run to. Amen.
Decree out loud: I decree Jesus is my hiding place and my place of safety! I decree I am a believer in Christ Jesus, and He is in control and involved in my life! I know and declare He is still on His mighty throne, ruling and reigning! I declare I will use my mouth in faith to decree His actions into the earth because whatever I bind on earth “will be bound in heaven, and whatever I loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” (Matt. 18:18)
Prophetic encouragement: I see believers across the land and nations realizing the power and authority they have as a child of God, Most High! I hear them shouting, “You will also decree a thing, and it will be established for you; And light will shine on your ways.” (Job 22:28, NASB1995) I hear them warring for what is right, lovely, honorable, and pure! I hear them shouting the promises of God in the Bible out loud, tearing down demonic strongholds, in Jesus’ Name! Hallelujah!
