Morning Prayer

October 18, 2018

 

This prayer is the framework for the weekly prayer time for Anoka Awakening. The participants will gather at 7:00 AM at the predetermined location and begin the prayers together. Following is the pattern that will be followed:

·        Greeting and Welcome (Father, Son, Holy Spirit and participants)

·        Prayer for Armor of God

·        Prayer for Hedge of Protection

·        Prayer – Personal Preparation

·        Communion

·        Prayer over Anoka – as led by God to pray

·        Prayer for One Another (whoever requests specific prayer for oneself)

·        Conclusion – Amen

Note: This takes roughly 11-1/2 minutes to read through at an easy pace and with passion. Additional time will be added depending upon prayers for Anoka and for one another; this may be affected by the number of participants on any given day. I estimate each prayer session to last approximately 30 minutes, after which any participants may decide to gather for coffee or breakfast and fellowship, or possibly time of worship.


 

Greeting and Welcome

 

Good morning and welcome, Father, Son, Holy Spirit, and all who are serving the Living God.

 

Armor of God

 

Lord Jesus, that I may withstand the attacks of the enemy this day, and having done all to withstand, that I remain standing firm in the faith, I take on the whole armor of God. I clothe myself in you, Lord Jesus. I hide myself in you, Lord Jesus.

I put on the belt of truth, even as You gird me up with Your truth; You are Truth.

I put on the breastplate of righteousness. I am covered in your righteousness.

As shoes for my feet I have put on the readiness given by the Gospel of Peace. Your peace is with me as I go forth.

I take up the shield of faith with which I can extinguish all the flaming darts of the enemy. You give me faith and you are faithful; never leaving me nor forsaking me.

I take on the helmet of salvation. You, Lord, are my salvation and joy.

I carry the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God; the written Word; the spoken Word; the Living Word. You, Lord, are the Word dwelling among us.

I pray without ceasing for I am in constant communion with You.

And Your glory shall be my rear guard; for You always have my back.

 

Hedge of Protection

 

I thank you for and I continue to pray in your hedge of protection around me and all my household. Thank You, Lord, for your fiery hedge around us; for your angels all about us; for your breath over us; for holding us in the palm of your hand that none may pluck us from it.

I thank you for your hedge of protection around me and all that I do; my home, my property, and my vehicles, and all that you allow me to use; and especially around each member of my household. (Take a minute to list your spouse, children, and grandchildren.)

I ask you, Lord to bring any unbelievers within my household into the family of God, and to know the joy of Your salvation.

 

Personal Preparation

 

Personal Repentance

“Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord? Or who may stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive blessing from the Lord, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.” Psalms 24:3-5

I ask you Almighty God to continue to cleanse me as with the launderer’s soap and to purify me as with the refiner’s fire. I desire to have clean hands and a pure heart that I may ascend the hill of the Lord and stand in Your holy place; that I may receive blessing and righteousness from You, Lord, the God of my salvation.

Proclamation of Faith

I make this statement of faith:

I am a child of Father, God Almighty. I am an ambassador of Jesus Christ to all creation. Jesus is my Lord and Savior. Jesus is the King of kings and Lord of lords. He is the Commander of Hosts in heaven and on earth. I operate and minister under His authority and I am commissioned by Him to do all that He asks of me.

Walking in the authority of Jesus Christ, I serve notice to all powers, thrones, and rulers of darkness, and any demonic entities, above and below, that you have no place in me and no power over me because of the blood of the Lamb of God. You are not to touch me, those affiliated with me, or the ministries to which I am called to walk and operate in. I disconnect all dark structures, connections, wirings, webs, hindrances, blockades, barriers, witchcraft operations, confusion, distractions, and disorders.

I ask you, Almighty God, that by your word and your heavenly hosts and angels, to disrupt and lay waste to any planned attacks, assignments of darkness, future retributions, and backlashes from my adversary against me, my family, my businesses, my ministries, and anyone affiliated with me. I also ask that you remove all evil darkness, all dark residue, and that all darkness be cleaned up and disposed of.

I thank you, Lord, for all the angels and heavenly hosts that You have assigned to me and to that which You have called me to do. I thank You for sending angels ahead to prepare the way for the assignments You have for me and the environment that You call on me to occupy. I thank You and the angels for building a hedge of protection around me and all those affiliated with me.

I thank You, Lord, for the establishment of a secure passageway from wherever I am to the throne room of heaven. I am grateful that this passageway is open, and that every necessary resource is accessible from heaven and will be released by You, Lord, in Your perfect timing. You, Lord, will accomplish the missions that you have assigned to me and to those with me. This is an open door established by the Lord of Hosts and no other shall close it. Amen!

 

Appropriating the Blood

I appropriate the blood of the Lamb of God:

I overcome Satan, by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of my testimony, and by not loving my life even unto death. (Rev. 12:11)

Therefore, I, the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy. (Ps. 107:2)

That through the blood of Jesus, I am redeemed. (Eph. 1:7)

Through the blood of Jesus, I am forgiven. (Col. 1:14)

Through the blood of Jesus, I am washed.

Through the blood of Jesus, I am cleansed. (1 Jn. 1:7; Heb. 9:14)

Through the blood of Jesus, I am declared not guilty. (Jn. 3:18)

Through the blood of Jesus, I am acquitted.

Through the blood of Jesus, I am reckoned righteous.

Through the blood of Jesus, I am made righteous. (Rom. 3:25, 5:1)

Through the blood of Jesus, I am sanctified, and set apart for God. (Heb. 10:29, 13:12)

Through the blood of Jesus, I am justified, just as if I had never sinned. (Rom. 5:9)

Through the blood of Jesus, I am reconciled to God and have peace with God. (Eph. 2:13, Col. 1:20)

Through the blood of Jesus, Satan has no unsettled debt or claim on me. All has been settled by the blood of Jesus. (Rom. 8:1, 8:39)

 

Preparation for Spiritual Warfare

Prepare me this day, Lord, for the spiritual warfare you may call me into: 

Lord, deposit your militancy into my spirit. Arise in me Holy Spirit. Breathe Your breath over me Lord. Open up Your armory, Your hailstone, Your snow, Your fire, Your judgment, Your chariots, Your horses, Your angelic hosts of heaven, Your broom of destruction, Your breath, Your shouts, Your east wind, over the works of the enemy in my life, my family, my businesses, my ministries, the Church, the City of Anoka, Anoka County, Metro City, the state of Minnesota, the Great Lakes Region, Washington D.C., in our politics and elections, and in the United States of America, in the name of Jesus!

 

Against Satanic Altars and High Places

I stand against every Satanic altar and high place:

Lord, rise up against witchcraft and its altars, and the idolatry of halloween. Cut off from Anoka and Minnesota all the remnant of sorcery and divination. Lord, make these satanic altars a possession of the hedgehog and porcupine, and of marshes and pools of water, and sweep them with the broom of destruction. You have sworn saying, "Surely as I have thought and planned, so shall it come to pass, and as I have purposed, so shall it stand." (Isaiah 14:22-24)

Lord, send Your terror before me and throw into confusion all satanic and evil priesthood. Make all of them turn their backs and run. Send Your hornets before me and drive them out of Anoka and Minnesota. (Exodus 23:28)

By driving them out of Anoka and Minnesota, You contend with them oh Lord. Remove them with Your rough blast as in the days of the east wind. (Isaiah 27:8)

Woe unto you satanic altars! Wail, for the day of the Lord is at hand; as destruction from the Almighty and Sufficient One comes upon witchcraft and satanic altars in Anoka and Minnesota. (Isaiah 13:5-9)

Lord, You have opened Your armory and brought forth the weapons of Your indignation and wrath, for the Lord of Hosts, You have a work to do in the land of Anoka and Minnesota. (Jeremiah 50:25)

Lord, cause Your glorious voice to be heard and the descending blow of Your arm to be seen. Come down with indignation and anger and with flames of a consuming and devouring fire, amid crashing blast and cloudburst, tempest, thunderstorm, and hailstones. At Your voice oh Lord, witchcraft and its altars will be stricken with dismay and terror, when You smite it with Your rod. Its fire pit has been made deep and wide, with abundance of fire and wood; with Your breath oh Lord, like a stream of burning sulfur, set it ablaze. (Isaiah 30:30-31, 33)

Send out your arrows and scatter them; and shoot out lightnings and defeat them. (Palms 18:14)

Our God come, and do not keep silent: let Your fire devour before You, and let it be very tempestuous round about the wicked plans of the enemy. (Psalms 50:3)

Let a stream of fire come forth from before You; from Your seat of judgment, and Your heavenly court session. (Daniel 7:10)

Lord, come with fire, and with Your chariots like a whirlwind, to render Your anger with fury, and rebuke with flames of fire. By fire and by Your sword speak with all the wicked: and the slain of the Lord shall be many. (Isaiah 66:15-16)

 

Communion

 

At Your direction, o Lord, I receive this communion in remembrance of you.

Thank You Father for so great a love that You sent Your only begotten Son into this world to redeem me and restore me to a right relationship with you. Thank You for accepting His sacrifice as sufficient for the forgiveness of my sin, the salvation of my soul, and the restoration of my communion with You.

Thank You Lord Jesus for so great a love that you left the majesty of heaven to be the perfect sacrifice for my sake. Thank You for laying down Your life both in the living of it and in the dying, even the death on the cross.

Thank You Lord Jesus for the perfect example of living life in sacrificial love for others, in communion with Father, and in being led by Holy Spirit. Thank You for enduring the unimaginable abuse and brutality against Your mind, soul, body and spirit for my sake.

I receive this bread, Your body, Your flesh, and this cup, the fruit of the vine, Your blood. Your body which was bruised for my iniquity, wounded for my transgressions, and shredded and pierced to the shedding of your blood for the forgiveness of my sin.

I receive this communion in remembrance of You.

 

Prayer for Anoka

 

We wrestle not against flesh and blood but against every ruler, authority, and power of darkness in heavenly places. So, I pray for every soul in Anoka to come to know the joy of your salvation.

Father, I ask that You ignite a passionate fire in the belly of every believer in Anoka, that every believer would profess their faith and take Your love wherever they go; homes, jobs, schools, families, and friends. Let the Gospel of Peace be spread throughout Anoka like a wild fire.

Father I ask that You draw every unbeliever to Your Son, that they may know the joy of Your salvation. Lord Jesus, please receive every soul with open arms for the sake of the Kingdom of God. Holy Spirit, please direct each soul in the way of truth and life everlasting.

(Prayers for Anoka as led by Holy Spirit.)

 

Prayer for One Another

(Prayer for one another – specific requests for oneself.)

Conclusion

 

Almighty God, I thank You for this opportunity to come before your throne of mercy and grace on behalf of myself, the City of Anoka, Anoka County and beyond. May Your peace be with me and Your presence be upon me as I go through this day. I pray that my life will be wholly pleasing in Your sight.

Amen!
