Day 10 • Fasting & Praying

Psalm 115:13-14, He will bless them that fear the Lord , both small and great. The Lord shall increase you more and more, you and your children.

Heavenly Father, Your Name Is Abba. You Are The Greatest Father of All. We Thank You for the promise of blessings we have because we fear You Oh God. And so we ask and believe by faith for Your blessings upon our relationships today in Jesus’ name. Lord, as we humble ourselves and submit to Your will, serving You with joy and gladness, we ask that you give paternal mothers and fathers, as well as the spiritual mothers and fathers, young and old, the grace they need this year to parent in love. Lord, we ask that You give wisdom and good understanding, for parents lead their families in the ways of righteousness in Jesus’ name. Lord, cause fathers to draw near to their sons and daughters. Cause mothers to draw near to their children that they may be taught in the Lord. Return the hearts of parents to their children once again. Let there be a great burden upon parents to snatch their children out of the snares of the devil, and win their children to Jesus. Lord, bless parents to be sensitive to their children’s needs. And bless our children’s attention span, so they are attentive to hear and receive the wisdom in Jesus’ name. 

Lord, we ask that You touch the hearts of all our extended family. Heavenly Father, we pray Your blessings be upon our grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and all of our distant relatives today in Jesus’ name. Lord, we know there is no place You cannot reach them and speak to them. And so we pray for our unsaved loved ones today. Speak to us all Heavenly Father in ways that they we might know without a doubt, it is You, The Almighty God. Lord, we ask in Jesus’ name that You take our loved ones through whatever process You require to humble them, that they might know You Are God – that they might repent and receive Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and Lord. And we declare victory for them this year in Jesus’ name.

Lord, wherever they are, we pray that You shine Your light in the midst of darkness, and pull them out with Your loving kindness in Jesus’ name. Lord, we pray You be merciful and bless our unsaved loved ones in Jesus’ name. Lord bless those who are single. Open their eyes to see Jesus so they might accept Him and be in right relationship with You through Christ Jesus. Lord, we ask that you reveal and destroy the yoke of all unholy relationships, soul ties, manipulative relationships, abusive relationships, and dangerous relationships in Jesus’ name. We bind up all twisted concepts of adventure or discovery that may be causing them to be in experimental relationships that are spiritually, mentally, physically, emotionally and eternally  dangerous in Jesus’ name. We bind up all perversion and wickedness and we cast it out now in Jesus’ name. And Lord, we pray for those who are single and saved. Lord we ask that You increase their patience this year, so they wait until You reveal the one who loves The Lord first, who honors sanctification, to being faithful to God, values being among the saints, ready to be a true friend and companion, who knows the word of God, who walks in integrity, seeks to live holy, healed, healthy, who will add value in their relationship, to strengthen, encourage, inspire people toward better, who will motivate us pursue and walk in our purpose, and compel us to draw closer in our relationship with You oh God. 

Lord, we pray Your blessings be upon the fatherless, the orphans and adopted children today. We bind up all spirits of abandonment, rejection, bitterness, resentment and neglect, and we cast them out now in Jesus’ name. Lord, reveal the blessing of Your Name Abba to the fatherless children. Let them know they have not been forsaken, but they have been forgiven and favored by You in Jesus’ name. Lord we ask by faith that You restore the joy and happiness they may have lost when they were children. Lord, give them the spiritual nourishment they missed, the teaching, training and correction they need so they may grow up and mature this year in Jesus’ name. Abba Father, be glorified in our lives, and be glorified throughout the earth. 

Lord, we pray for every marriage You have joined together in Jesus’ name. And we decree and declare husbands and wives are drawing closer to You God, and closer to each other, so they are like a three-fold cord that is not easily broken. We pray for believing spouses who are fighting together for their marriage. Lord, give them wisdom and understanding on how to navigate the difficulties in their relationship in Jesus’ name. Help them to understand the blessing of sanctifying their households, and the reward You have for those who endure in Jesus’ name. We also pray for the believing spouses who are enduring great difficulties right now. We pray that You give them peace and strengthen them to obey Your word in spite of the obstacles they face. Lord grant them a fresh portion of grace to endure hardships in Jesus’ name. And we take authority over unclean spirits now in Jesus’ name and rebuke every spirit of anger, jealousy, envy, pride, fear, unforgiveness, misunderstandings, silence, poor communication, and competition that would try to bring division between husbands and wives. We bind them up now and we cast them out in Jesus’ name. And we declare in Jesus’ name that no man, no woman, or any demon in hell will be able to tear apart what God has joined together. For we confess the marriage is blessed, the children are blessed, and the household is blessed in Jesus’ name. We confess loving marriages are bringing glory to You Oh God as they minister to lost souls seeking to know the love of God, and receive hope for their future. And we declare victory for them this year in Jesus’ name. 

Lord, we pray, asking for wisdom in all of our work relationships in Jesus’ name. We thank You for the colleagues we work with each day. Thank You for the blessing of cooperation and partnerships that help us succeed each day. And so we pray that You bless our colleagues today. Lord, remove stress from their personal lives so they may bring peace into the work environment. Lord, release the wisdom we need for bringing the best solutions to the difficult problems and personnel situations we face, so we bring the Kingdom of God to work so the anointing destroys the yoke and lifts the burden of stress off of our colleagues. We bind up all spirits of unhealthy competition in the workplace that create fear of failure, divisions, cliques, worry, anxiety, depression, and stress and we cast them out now in Jesus’ name. We decree and declare our work environments are places of happiness and fulfillment as we live out God’s purpose beyond the walls of the church, letting our light shine among men. We thank You Lord for the blessings of goodness, mercy and favor being with us each day. And we give You praise in Jesus’ name. 

Heavenly Father, we pray You bless all Kingdom relationships today in Jesus’ name. Lord, we thank You for the relationships You have ordained to bless us. Lord we ask that You strengthen and give grace to all those You have called to help us, teach us, train us, equip us and mentor us in our personal lives, in ministry, and in business. Lord bless them for the priceless investments they make in our lives. Open new doors of opportunity and let Your favor rest on them for the work they do to glorify Your Name. We ask You continue to direct us to those who are in agreement, and embrace the vision You have given us, to help us prosper and bring great glory to Your Holy Name. Lord we thank You in advance for blessing us to bless them. And we decree and declare victory now in Jesus’ name. Thank You Heavenly Father for being Our God Who Is Awesome. You Are The Great I Am. And we give You all the praise and glory for all these blessings we believe for by faith in Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
