His Good pleasure!

Luke 12:32: Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

I’m not a father; I cannot be a father.

My earthly Father; did for me what He could.

I saw my father; work 2 jobs.

I just believe; it pleased my earthly father; to please; his little girl.

I believe; my Heavenly father; wants me to enjoy the life that He has so graciously given to me.

My earthly father believed in discipline.

My Heavenly father; put an emphasis on obedience.

John 14:23: Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

My keeping His words; gives Him proof; that I love Him.

He sees; that it is not just; lip service.

It seems; we live in a society that believes it is impossible to keep God’s Words.

God; would not ask us to anything; that we are incapable of doing!

Please; don’t think you are under any more pressure than is common!

The enemy; will attempt to talk to you/I.

Don’t fool yourself; the enemy knows scripture too.

There is authority and power in the name of Jesus!

Don’t ever; think that there is power our names.

Could it be?

That God has more faith in us than we do ourselves?

People; will take notice of the Spirit; that is in you/I.

Why Pray For Forgiveness and Repentance

(Why Forgive?)

Our Heavenly Father has given us His Way to learn and grow in, in many areas of life, such as loving and forgiving one another. We need to receive His Ways and walk in them. It is up to us to come to Him (See Isaiah 55, Matthew. 11:28-30) He sent His Son Jesus Christ to die on the cross for our sins. This is not only for atonement for sins, and a Way to God and His Kingdom, but as His spiritual children He desires to bring us into a mature, “in Him” Way of Life and relationship with Him. Sin has been dealt with, it has been placed under the Blood of His Dear Son Jesus Christ. We are covered in the Blood and He no longer sees the sins, trespasses, transgressions, and iniquities we walked in before  we came into His Kingdom through Jesus Christ. Those were tossed into a sea of forgetfulness, so don’t bring them back up, you might just hear Him say, “What are you talking about?”, they are gone and long forgotten. Don’t go digging that ugly, rotting thing back up, it won’t do you any good anyway! However if we sin then we are to confess our sins, with an as we go attitude. God is sincere about forgiveness. He expects us to show the same mercy and forgiveness toward others as well as toward ourselves! The Word of God says unforgivers will not inherit the Kingdom of Heaven.  It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out what that means! Where does that leave me or you when we do not forgive a person, any person?! Are we so great that we are above God’s Word?! That sounds like satan (the devil or Lucifer) exalting himself (Isaiah 14:12-15). Sometimes I see that I have had bitterness, anger, resentment, grudges, wrong attitudes, thoughts, and feelings that were just not right! These are the signs of un-forgiveness. 1Cor.13 reveals to us the standard we are to have in our heart, God’s Love: Love is patient, love is kind, love is ready to think the best of everybody. Everybody!  (Lord! But!, No buts!!!)  If we are truly going to follow in our Lords steps as we are called then there may be some “death to ourselves” involved! (No question about it!) Actually your prayers will not be answered till you repent. This doesn’t mean you have to let that person who offended you, continue to beat you down. Die to the offense and die to the offender, love them in spite of themselves. Let God help you get through any emotional problems, feelings, and trauma so you can receive God’s love, insight, and revelation to forgive! This is not about how you feel. Obey. It is God’s love in us that can always forgive an undeserved wrong. To not forgive hurts you more, even health wise. Doing it God’s way is the best for all. God desires restoration. Restoration with another might not happen all at once. In fact, the other person may not want to. But we obey God, and after that, the responsibility and what happens is between the other person or people and God. If a brother or sister has unforgiveness toward us we need to go to that person and set that right. What does God’s Word say if a brother or sister has ought or unforgiveness with us? “Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.” Matt 5:23-24 KJV (We go to them!) Now, what does God’s Word say if we have unforgiveness toward another? “And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought (unforgiveness) against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.” Mark 11:25 KJV. We are also commanded to bless our enemies, bless those that curse and persecute you to hear His Voice not that of a stranger, that they know Him and repent. After I repent and ask forgiveness from the Lord. I pray asking the Lord to forgive them and bless them to hear and know His Voice, and deal with them in His Way. Then I speak forgiveness to them and bless them with Holy Spirit conviction, salvation, a Godly fear of the Lord, repentant heart, and walk. So the Lord is very clear, that if you do not forgive others their trespasses then know that He will not forgive you either! (We not only need to FORGIVE but we also need to TURN from our evil ways!)  I would not want my worst enemy to go into the torment of hell, it is going to be so unimaginably horrible and last for the rest of eternity!)

 

Repentance Prayer

Heavenly Father, we come before You today to ask Your Forgiveness and seek Your direction and guidance.  We know Your Word says, “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil,” (Isaiah 5:20), but that’s exactly what we have done.  We have lost our Spiritual equilibrium and inverted our values.  We confess that;  we have ridiculed the absolute truth of Your Word and called it pluralism; We have worshipped other gods and called it multiculturalism;  We have endorsed perversion and called it an alternative lifestyle; We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery; We have neglected the needy and called itself preservation; We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare;  We have killed our unborn and called it choice; We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable; We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self-esteem; Some of us have abused power and called it political savvy; We have coveted our neighbor’s possessions and called it ambition; We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression; We have ridiculed the time –honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment.  Search us, O God, and know our hearts today; try us and see if there be some wicked way in us; cleanse us from every sin and set us free according to Your Will.

I ask this in the Name of Your Son, The Living Savior, Jesus Christ.  Amen!

                                                                        –   Dr. Joe Wright

Parents Prayer For a Loved One That is a Teenager

Heavenly Father, in the Name of Jesus, I affirm Your Word over my child/children. I commit ___________, my child/children; to You and affirm Your Word over them from Isaiah 54:13 that tells me my children shall be taught by the Lord and great shall be the peace of my children. I thank You that You deliver ____,____out of rebellion into right relationship with us, his/her parents.  In Exodus 20:12, Your Word teaches us that the first commandment given with a promise is to the child who obeys his/her parents in the Lord. Father, You said in Deuteronomy 5:16 that all will be well with my child/children and ____,_____will live long on the earth. I affirm this promise on behalf of my child/children, asking You to give ____ ,______, an obedient spirit that he/she may honor his/her father and mother. Father, forgive me for mistakes made out of my own hurts or selfishness, which may have caused __________ hurt. I ask full and true repentance for the mistakes I have made in raising my children.  I release the anointing that is upon Jesus to bind up and heal our broken hearts and the broken hearts of our children. Give us the ability to understand and forgive one another as God has forgiven us. Thank You for the Holy Spirit Who leads us into all truth and corrects any wrong perceptions about past or present situations.  Thank You for teaching us to listen to each other and giving _____, _____ an ear that hears admonition, for then he/she will be called wise. I affirm that I will speak kind, excellent and Godly things and that any words coming out of my mouth will be the right words and will be used for Your glory Lord Jesus (Colossians 3:21).  Father, I promise to train and teach ____, ______ in the way that he/she is to go, and when ____ ,______ is old he/she will not depart from You Lord, but will follow You all the days of his/her life. In the Name of Jesus, I command the spirit of rebellion to be far from the heart of my child and confess that he/she is willing and obedient, free to enjoy the reward of Your promises. I ask that ______,____   shall be peaceful, and  a blessing to others. Father, according to Your Word we have been given the ministry of reconciliation, and I release this ministry and the word of reconciliation into this family. I refuse to provoke or irritate or belittle my child; I will not be hard on _____, _____or require perfection lest he/she becomes discouraged, feeling inferior and frustrated. I will not break his/her spirit, in the Name of Jesus and by the power of the Holy Spirit. Father, I forgive my child for the wrongs he/she has done and stand in the gap until he/she begins to understand Your love and Your grace causing them to come out of the spirit of rebellion which is the snare of the enemy (Ephesians 6:1-3). We should not abandon hope in Your love and commitment to all Your creation.  We know You Jesus, died for our children, even before they were born.  Although It may seem to us that our children’s journey into selfishness, self-destruction and the world is never-ending, God we know You are at work in our children’s lives in ways we may never understand.  We ask you, Heavenly Father, for a quiet assurance that this process of conversion will take place and the inner peace that only You, Lord Jesus can give us, will now manifest in our lives, in the Name of Jesus.  Help us to be strong like Mary, the mother of Jesus, as she wept and felt deep pain as she witnessed her Son’s journey knowing God’s plan; as You knew Your plans for our children, even before they were born (Jeremiah 1:2).  Help us O Lord, to know and understand that we must let God control difficult situations and always be mindful to trust You.  Heavenly Father, help us to remember always that our children have belonged to you from the beginning. Help us Lord to understand that we are here to nurture them and guide them in Your ways while they are in our care.  Lord, we have been mindful to raise them up in the way they should go, having made some mistakes of the flesh as we are not perfect.  We did what we thought was right at the time and we know that you, Lord, know our heart and honor that effort. It is so difficult, Lord, to understand them and to be the way they would like us to be.  Even though it is difficult to understand we continue giving Glory to You and put our complete trust and expectancy in Your Word. Thank You for reconciling the heart of our rebellious child back to us and our hearts back to our child.  We declare the power of the enemy over our children, null and void according to (Psalms 55:12-14).  Thank You Lord, for our child/children ____, _____ and for holding each one of them in Your loving hands. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
