Overcomer Praise God for Mondays

Praise God for Mondays. Tomorrow April 22, 2018 Monday. Look forward to it because you are an overcomer. It’s Marvelous Manifestation Monday. Thank God for Monday. You are blessed. Thank God for new opportunities, a new start,……. Embrace it. Believe and make declarations that God is working out your day and the week; that God is working in your favor and that Jesus can fix “whatever it is “ for you.

Why be depressed when Monday rolls around? Don’t focus on the negatives. Look at the positives. Look at the fact that God daily loads us up with benefits beginning with Mondays!!! You are alive. Just that is a blessing! God will work in your favor, and He is your sun and shield. Psalm 5:12 Have a new outlook on life! Keep on praying. God is working it out. Pray without ceasing. 1 Thessalonians 5:17. Speak the Word. Listen. Prayer is a dialogue. Believe. Trust.”Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. Matt.7:7

So overcomers here is a prayer for you by Tiece L. King

Overcomer!

Father, Your Word says that I am an overcomer because of the blood of the Lamb, the Lord Jesus Christ, and the word of my testimony—that in Jesus, all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and I have been given fullness in Christ and share in His authority over every spiritual power and authority! But I confess that I do not feel like an overcomer, and I often give in to the influence of this world instead of submitting to Christ.

O God, save me from myself! May I be full of Your Spirit and Your mighty power—the power of the resurrection! Teach me and use me, that I might be one who sees strongholds demolished in my life and help others to walk in freedom. Thank You, Father, that because I belong to You in Christ Jesus, You surround me with Your presence—that You are a wall of fi re around me.

You, O Lord, are my refuge and my strength. In every situation and struggle, You are with me. I will not be afraid for my trust is in Your name. Like Joshua, may I be confident that You are with me and will never leave or forsake me. By Your Spirit at work in me make me to be strong and courageous, to not be afraid or discouraged, but always mindful that You are with me wherever I go. Use me to take back ground that the enemy has stolen. Help me to be self-controlled and alert, knowing that the enemy of my soul is prowling, looking for an opportune moment.

In Jesus’ name, strengthen me to submit to You, resist the enemy, and to stand firm in my faith! Give me, I pray, Your perspective of the situations I face and may I live victoriously, as a conqueror, because of Jesus and His love for me. May I be full of faith and Your Word, for I belong to You, Lord Jesus, and You have overcome the world!

Pondering and Praying the Word

 

The book of Proverbs is full of God’s wisdom, knowledge and understanding.  Proverbs instructs, “Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life” (4:23). The heart is a metaphor for our inner being, the essence of who I really am. It is the dwelling place of my emotions, attitudes and intentions. I am called to be holy, a holy temple in the Lord, according to Ephesians 2:13-22, with Christ Jesus Himself being the cornerstone. This holiness is a result or by-product of my passion for the Lord, in pondering and praying the Word in passionate prayer. My love and passion for God and His Word awakens my heart and increases my awareness of His presence, restoring the fear of the Lord and my hunger and thirst for more of Him.

I encourage you to press on in pondering and praying the Word of God in passionate prayer, as you walk in the Spirit by faith, not according to the world, but by the work of the Holy Spirit, in the will of God the Father, in and through the ways of the Lord Jesus Christ, with the Word of God in your heart and mind, as it is in heaven upon the earth.

Almighty God, Your Word is filled with all wisdom, knowledge and understanding.  As I pray through all that You have said to me, help me to apply it to my life and to obediently allow Your truth to sink deeply into my heart.  May it transform me from the inside out so that my life will reflect Your kingdom to others.

Prayer Points

Praise God, the one whose name is great among the nations (Mal. 1:11). Give thanks that the good news is being preached in so many countries today and that it has been proclaimed to you, too. Confess anything in your life which hinders your own witness to the saving grace of Christ. Commit yourself to regular prayer support of missionaries whom you know. Ask God to open doors for their ministries.

Your family can be a missionary family right in your neighborhood! Ask for opportunities for your family to be a witness among your neighbors and friends. (And then be ready when God answers!)
