A Prayer for You

Apr 24, 2020

God, thank You for Your empowering presence that is always with us, always in us, and never leaves us. Thank You for placing us in You and You in us so that we are so interwoven that nothing could ever separate us from Your love. [Romans 8]

Thank You for this community of people who have been brought together for such a time as this to pursue Your promise of perfect peace. You are so kind to give us each other. I know that You know every person receiving this prayer — You know each of their names, their stories, You know their hearts, You know their pain and their joy, and You even know if they are receiving this prayer the same week I crafted it or 5 years from now — You’re not bound by time. You are truly the God who sees us. [1 Peter 2:9, Titus 1:2, Jeremiah 1:5, Genesis 16:13

And because of who You are, God, that I’m confident that You will accomplish Your glorious plans for each and every one of us. These plans You have, according to Your word, are marked by peace and filled with hope. Thank You for Your goodness to us. [Philippians 1:6, Jeremiah 29:11]

God, I ask that You would fill every heart right now with Your confidence. I pray that You would give us eyes to see how You see what is happening in our world right now with this global pandemic and any personal battles we are currently facing. I pray that we will see and trust that You have gone before us and we will recognize where you have placed Your provision for us in this season. I pray that our hearts are marked with an expectation of Your goodness and glorious future, not dread of the next news report. [1 John 4:17, 2 Kings 6:17, Deuteronomy 31:8, Isaiah 8:12-13, Psalm 27:13]

Lord, I pray that we all pick up on the excitement of heaven that is in the air right now. That we see that what the enemy has sent to harm us You are swiftly turning around for the good of those who love You. [Isaiah 43:18-19, Romans 8:28]

Lord, in this season of divine reset, empower us with Your rest, Your renewal, and Your unlimited resources. [Isaiah 61]

We will be refreshed. [Proverbs 11:25]

We will not leave this season empty handed. [John 1:16]

We will be delighted, not disappointed. [Psalm 37:4]

I pray that every household and family represented by those who are receiving this prayer would be blessed and highly favored by You. I pray that the favor You give us would overflow into our neighborhoods and our communities so that people around us would taste and see that You are God and You are so very good. [Numbers 6:22-27, Psalm 34:8]

Lord, we want to partner with You in taking out the spirits of intimidation and fear. Give us wisdom to guard our own hearts against them and embolden us to remove them from our lands. [Philippians 4:7, James 1:5, James 4:7, Malachi 3:11, Joel 2:21

Lord, we know You love us and we will not believe anything less of You. [1 John 4:16]

It’s because of Your radical goodness, Your relentless love, and Your redeeming promises that I boldly declare radiant health into our bodies and minds. I declare perfect peace — nothing missing and nothing broken in Your people. [Isaiah 53:5, Proverbs 4:22, Isaiah 26:3]

Lord, make us a people who empty the enemy’s hands and destroy every single one of his plans. Make us a people who shift atmospheres, infuse peace, spread joy, and walk confidently in Your love and truth. Today, tomorrow and forever.

And I pray all of these things with so much confidence and trust because I pray this in the mighty name of Jesus. [John 14:13-14]
