Abba…as always, I have on my heart all those You have called to be leaders in Your assembly…the body of Yeshua. I especially lift up those who are reading this prayer. I lift up all who are called into the priesthood of Yeshua.
Abba, Avraham believed and it was credited to him as righteousness.
He believed enough to leave behind all he knew to start a journey to a new land.
He believed even to the point of offering his son of the promise…Yitz’chak…to You.
May all of us believe just as much, Abba!
May we believe the words You have spoken through the ages.
May we believe the promises You have given to Your chosen people…the root.
May we believe that those of us who are Goyim/Gentiles have been grafted in to that root as wild branches.
May we believe that You are the Creator of all that is both seen and unseen.
May we believe in the holy sacrifice of Your Son…Yeshua/Jesus…on our behalf.
May we believe…leading to repentance and godly, holy lives.
May we believe…and stand upon…the truth of who You are and who we are.
May we believe that we truly CAN stand strong upon the Rock of our salvation…upon Yeshua.
May we believe that You truly HAVE given to us all things pertaining to life and godliness…that we CAN stand against the adversary and enemy of our souls.
May we believe that You truly HAVE given to us a way of escape for EVERY temptation that rises up against us.
May we believe that we truly CAN be victorious in living a godly life.
May we believe that You truly ARE with us through all persecutions and trials…that You will NEVER leave us or forsake us.
Abba…may we BELIEVE…understanding that the word means way more than head knowledge. It means that we ENTRUST our spiritual well-being to You.
May we believe that You will NEVER let go of Your faithful ones…that You WILL complete what You have started!
Hallelu Yah! We praise YOU, Oh G-d, for You are the Creator and the L-rd of the universe.
You are a strong TOWER to run into.
You are a SHIELD and a FORTRESS.
You are a ROCK we can stand upon.
You are our DEFENDER and PROTECTOR.
Because of YOU and who You are and what You have done for us…we CAN stand upon the Truth, speaking and teaching ONLY Your truth…even when it is unpopular with so many.
We CAN choose to live and walk in Your ways…again…even when it is unpopular with so many.
We CAN judge with a righteous judgment (NOT condemning)…even when it is unpopular with so many.
We CAN tell a lost world (including those lost in the assembly) that sin IS sin…and that they need to REPENT and be FORGIVEN.
Help us to be HUMBLE…loving all who come our way…being willing to serve ANYone, regardless of their beliefs or lifestyles.
May we SHOW Your love to all…just as You did when You were here.
May we REACH OUT to the hurting.
May we LOVE the lost.
May we NEVER FORGET to love our brothers and sisters in Yeshua.
May we MEET NEEDS…first in the body of Yeshua, building her up so that she/we can adequately meet the needs of the lost…SHOWING them Your love in our words and actions.
