Whoever walks the road, although a fool, shall not go astray.(v9) No Lion shall be there. No shall any ravenous beast go up on it; it shall not be found there. But the redeemed shall walk there. (v 10) And the ransomed of the Lord shall return, And come to Zion with singing, With everlasting joy on their heads. They shall obtain joy and gladness, And sorrow and sighing shall flee away.

Day 6

 

They raised their voices together in prayer

Acts 4:23-31 - The believers pray 

(23) On their release, Peter and John went back to their own people and reported all that the chief priests and the elders had said to them. (24) When they heard this, they raised their voices together in prayer to God. “Sovereign Lord,” they said, “you made the heavens and the earth and the sea, and everything in them. (25) You spoke by the Holy Spirit through the mouth of your servant, our father David: “ ‘Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain? (26) The kings of the earth rise up and the rulers band together against the Lord and against his anointed one. ’ (27) Indeed Herod and Pontius Pilate met together with the Gentiles and the people of Israel in this city to conspire against your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed. (28) They did what your power and will had decided beforehand should happen. (29) Now, Lord, consider their threats and enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness. (30) Stretch out your hand to heal and perform signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus.” (31) After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly.”
‭‭
In this passage it had been a big couple of days. Peter and John has very publicly healed a beggar, and had then spoken to an enormous crowd about Jesus. This led the local religious leaders to get annoyed and have Peter and John kept overnight in jail and then brought before a religious court. Just when they were deep in discussion, the Holy Spirit got hold of Peter and he made a fantastic speech. It was so good that those sitting in judgement decided merely to threaten them and let them go.

Imagine waking out of that court, back to where the rest of the church was waiting for them, and stepping into the room to cheers and whoops. Everyone wanted to know what had happened. So the story was told. Then someone said, ‘Let’s give thanks to God for your release and pray!’ Everyone agrees. And everyone wanted pray. So they all ‘raised their voices together in prayer to God’ The noise of all their prayers was so loud that the very foundations of the room were shaking (v. 31)! God on the move. God’s spirit all around them, in them and on them. Just like the first time the Holy Spirit came on the church at Pentecost (Acts 2). No wonder they all got ‘bold’ and went out to speak fearlessly about Jesus!

Prayer point:
- Sometimes we need to pray together as the church and shake the room with the Holy Spirit!

Have a blessed day

Day 5

Saying Thank You

*Luke 17:11-19 *- Jesus heals ten men with leprosy

(11) Now on his way to Jerusalem, Jesus travelled along the border between Samaria and Galilee. (12) As he was going into a village, ten men who had leprosy met him. They stood at a distance and called out in a loud voice, 'Jesus, Master, have pity on us!' (14) When he saw them, he said, 'Go, show yourselves to the priests.' And as they went, they were cleansed. (15) One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice. (16) he threw himself at Jesus' feet and thanked him - and he was a Samaritan. (17) Jesus asked, 'Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine? (18) Has no one returned to give praise to God except this foreigner?' (19) Then he said to him, 'Rise and go; your faith has made you well.'

This is the story of ten people who came to Jesus and asked to be healed of leprosy. Jesus had told them to go and see the priests - whose responsibilities included checking whether people still had deadly diseases and deciding whether they could come back to society. 

As the ten walked away, their bodies changed. Their leprosy disappeared. Miracles! Ten of them! The real deal!
They had set off to see the priests in faith, and now they knew that when they got there, they would be given a clean bill of health. They would be allowed to see their families, allowed into the town, allowed into the synagogues, allowed to re-join the community. Their lives had started again. A surely joyous occasion.

But one of these men was a Samaritan. He wasn't part of the Jewish religious system and the priests could do nothing for him. For him, the big deal was getting healed. And he was! So he stopped, turned around and went back to Jesus to say 'thank you'.

Ten got healed. Nine got their place back in society. But only one got a relationship with Jesus. Ten got a miracle. But only one got praise from Jesus. Saying 'thank you' didn't make the healing any more real, but it did change everything else. This man didn't share the religion of those around him, but he came back - and stood there talking to God. We all have been told that saying 'thank you' is polite but saying a genuine 'thank you' to Jesus means something far greater. It means you have a relationship with God.

Prayer points:
- If you have a major need, then saying 'please' to God opens the door for him to act. So, say 'please' to Jesus for all your needs and the many needs of those you know. But remember that when the miracle happens, there's another thing to say to God. Saying 'thank you' may not get you another miracle, but it will deepen your relationship with him.

Have a blessed day

Day 4

 

A daily pattern of prayer

Daniel 6 - Daniel in the den of lions

In this passage, the chief ministers and straps tried to find a reason to get charges against Daniel:(Daniel 6:6-10)(6) So these chief ministers and straps went as a group to the king and said: 'May King Darius live forever! (7) The royal ministers, prefects, straps, advisors and governors have all agreed that the king should issue an edict and enforce the decree that anyone who prays to any God or human being during the next thirty days, except to you, Your Majesty, shall be thrown into the lions' den. (8) Now, Your Majesty, issue the decree and put it in writing so that it cannot be altered - in accordance with the law of the Medes and Persians, which cannot be repeated.' (9) So King Darius put the decree in writing. (10) Now when Daniel learned that the decree had been published, he went home to his upstairs room where the windows opened towards Jerusalem. Three times a day he got down on his knees and prayed, giving thanks to his God, just as he had done before.

It was so well known of Daniel's devotion to God, that it was even used to plot against him. They knew that he was so committed to prayer that he wouldn't stop even if it was made illegal.This is inspirational because even though Daniel knew what the chief ministers and straps were up to, he still deliberately set out to maintain his pattern of prayer. Even asking God for help (Daniel 6:11). The fact that he risked death proves that he saw his routine of prayer as essential. The source of Daniel's spiritual power was the living God, but his connection to that source was a consistent life of petition and thanksgiving. So, Daniel felt safer praying as usual, being caught and then given as a meal to hungry lions than if he had changed his routine and spent a few weeks only praying in his thoughts!

Prayer points:
- As we know, Daniel was sent an angel by God, when in the lions' den - not a scratch on him (Daniel 6:22). So pray knowing the power of consistent communication with our Lord, God. Pray sincerely and regularly.

Have a blessed day

Day 3

 

Agreeing to agree, Amen.

Matthew 18:18-20
(18) ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. (19) Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about *anything they ask for, it will be done *for them by my Father in heaven. (20) For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them’

- Here is a promise that when even just two people come together in Jesus’ name “anything they ask for, it will be done...”

There are a number of ways for us to symbolise our joint requests to God - our prayers of agreement. The traditional way is to wait until the end of a prayer that someone else has prayed and join together in unison saying, ‘Amen!’ This is the way we say, ‘We completely agree with that one, Lord. Let it be done!’ Every time we say ‘Amen’ at the end of someone else’s prayer, we are symbolising that we know what was written in Matthew 18:19 is a promise from God.

In this passage the Greek word for ‘agree’ can be translated as ‘harmonise’. Just like on a piano, when the right two notes are played together, a harmony is created. The notes are already there, they just need to be struck simultaneously and the beautiful sound is created. In the same way, if we have two people working together and praying to God that his kingdom will come, then we will see God do beautiful things - although not necessarily what we expect!

Prayer points:
- When we pray together and say Amen, know that it will be done. It has been promised to us. Pray with this promise in your heart. 

Have a blessed day

Day 2

 

Surprise at prayer working

Acts 12:1-19 - Peter's miraculous escape from prison

Within this passage, a group of Christians had gathered to pray. They had a lot to pray about as it was a time of great healings and new believers, but also a time where the church's main leaders were being persecuted, some were dead and Peter was in prison. Thus, one can assume that their prayers included Peter's safe release. 

(13)  Peter knocked at the outer entrance, and a servant named Rhoda came to answer the door. (14) When she recognized Peter’s voice, she was so overjoyed she ran back without opening it and exclaimed, “Peter is at the door!”

No one believed her. Even though they were praying for this very thing, they began to rationalise it. Maybe it is his angel: (15) “You’re out of your mind,” they told her. When she kept insisting that it was so, they said, “It must be his angel.”

(16) But Peter kept on knocking, and when they opened the door and saw him, they were astonished. 

These Christians were like many of us. We pray and pray for God to help us, but when He does, we're very surprised! Astonished! Even though they were praying for Peter's release, they were not really expecting their prayers to be 'powerful and effective' (James 5:16).

I'm encouraged. If God could work powerfully with these prayers, when they clearly didn't expect it to work out, then He can use our prayers too. We may be those of little faith (Matthew 6:30; 8:26; 14:31), but he still loves to do amazing and surprising things to answer our prayers.

Prayer points:
- As in James 5:16 - Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. We should pray without a doubt and with the knowledge of its power.

Have a blessed day

Day 1

 

Asking for the Holy Spirit

Ask, ask and ask again! 
Luke 11:1-13 - Jesus’ teaching on prayer

Looking at Luke 11:1-13, particularly from verse 9:
(9) “So I say to you: ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you...”
The words ‘ask’, ‘seek’ and ‘knock’ are in such a tense in the original language that’s difficult to translate into English. It could be written as, ‘Ask and ask and keep on asking, and it will be given to you.’

This added to the last part of the passage where Jesus said: 
(11) “Which of you fathers, if your son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead? (12) Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? (13) of If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”

- Just as we don’t like to say no to our loved ones, neither does God to us!

As Christians, the most basic prayer is to ask and ask Father God to give us the Holy Spirit. Out greatest need is to know God inside, upon us and overflowing us, and for his presence to set us apart from our sin and into his service. Then our hearts are his and the life and prayers that flow from us are in tune with his purpose. And the great thing is that the key to knowing God is simply trusting Him enough to ask and ask Him, because God loves us!

Prayer points:
- Ask for the Holy Spirit to fill you when you pray. 
- Whatever it is you ask the Lord for, ask and ask again!

May you have a blessed day!

Day 7

 

Today we declare and decree

The word declare comes from the Hebrew achvah, meaning “to make known” or “to set forth an accounting.”
Declarations are what we speak into the atmosphere, making known what we already have possession of. We can declare our righteousness, our salvation, our eternal victory and our friendship with God.

Decrees are a tool by which we cause the truths of the heavenly realm to be manifest into the natural realm so they become our daily reality. For example we decree healing when we are sick. Decrees are a tool to fulfill Matthew 6:10: “Thy Kingdom come, Thy Will be done on earth, as it is in heaven”.
When we decree God’s provision and blessings over our lives, then anything purposed/intended against our provision and blessing can have no  valid standing, or further say in the matter.

So we declare and decree:
I am chosen, holy, and dearly loved.
Colossians 3:12 – Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.

I have a future filled with hope.
Jeremiah 29:11 – For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

God’s wisdom exceeds all things, worldly knowledge can’t compare. I will not depend on my own understanding
Proverbs 3:5 – Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding.

I am not who I once was; I am forgiven.
2 Corinthians 5:17 – Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.

I will not be shaken.
Psalm 16:8– I know the LORD is always with me. I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me.

In the mighty name of Jesus Christ. Amen

Day 6

 

The power of the spoken word

We know that God created the world by speaking it into existence. What God speaks comes to pass. Over and over in Genesis 1, we see the words, “And God said.” Whatever God said became reality. All of creation is a result of God’s word spoken in the beginning of time.

Genesis 1:26 says that God created man in His own image and after His likeness and gave him complete authority over all the earth. So we were created in the very likeness of God himself. Just as God had the power to speak and create things from His spoken words, we too have been given the power to speak and create by our words. Proverbs 18:21 says, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue and they who indulge in it shall eat the fruit of it [for death or life].” 
Jesus said, “Whatever comes out of the mouth comes from the heart and makes a man unclean and defiles [him]” (Matthew 15:18)
Remember as we speak these biblical affirmations that What we say matters

I have everything I need to flourish. 
2 Peter 1:3 – By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence.

I have a future filled with hope.
Jeremiah 29:11 – For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

I will put on the full armor of God everyday.
Ephesians 6:10-18 NLT – A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.
 
Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm. Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armor of God’s righteousness. For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared. In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil. Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere. 

Remain blessed

Day 5

 

As we start our day, we want to be reminded that whatever comes our way, God is bigger. He is bigger than the next tragedy. He is bigger than our government. He is bigger than hurricanes, floods, and fires. He’s bigger than failed tests, chronic pains, and broken relationships.

Because of the Holy Spirit, we are not limited to our own abilities. When we feel like we cannot resist temptation, have patience with our kids, or carry on, we want to remember that we have the power because of Christ who lives in us. 

Today’s Biblical Affirmations: 
I am more than a conqueror.
Romans 8:31 – If God is for us, who can be against us? We are more than conquerors through Him who loves us. 

No matter what I go through, God’s glory will be revealed through my life.
Romans 8:18 – I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to me.
Philippians 1:6 – I’m convinced that God, who began this good work in you, will carry it through to completion on the day of Christ Jesus.

God is not punishing me; He is fighting on my behalf.
Deuteronomy 20:4 – For the Lord your God is going with you! He will fight for you against your enemies, and he will give you victory!

Fear does not hold me captive.
2 Timothy 1:7 – For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline

I have peace that surpasses all understanding.
Philippians 4:6-8 – Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.

Have a blessed day

AFFIRMATIONS

We don’t need science to know there’s power behind our thoughts — how our thoughts influence our lifestyle. We don’t need science to know self-criticism has the power to hold us back in a multitude of ways. 
What we need is a solution to fight back. The world chose affirmations; we choose the word of God. 
With positive affirmations, you are working from your own strength.
With biblical affirmations, you are totally dependent on God.

Today’s Biblical Affirmations:
“I will seek first God’s kingdom and His righteousness.”
Matthew 6:33 – Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.

I represent the light of Christ; I shine wherever I go. (Matthew 5:13-16)
Psalm 71:17 – O God, you have taught me ever since I was young, and I still talk about the miracles you have done.

I extend love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
Galatians 5:22-23 – But the spiritual nature produces love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,  gentleness, and self-control. There are no laws against things like that.

I will unashamedly live for God, not man.
Philippians 1:20 – I eagerly expect and hope that I will have nothing to be ashamed of. I will speak very boldly and honor Christ in my body, now as always, whether I live or die.

Have a blessed day
