d170ab85dcd7335ba8b68d00d049fda0Father in heaven, this day, we join with the cherubim, elders and saints in casting all our crowns at your feet: All creation declares your majesty and sovereignty, for you alone are God: Your magnificence is legendary and eternal, even as your lovingkindness is better than life: You God are mighty in battle, and today I stand on every promise you’ve made me.

You promised that with you God, nothing shall be impossible, so I lay my burdens at your feet, and the dry bones of my life, this nation and all of humanity at your feet. Father in heaven, little is much in your hands and righteousness and justice are the foundations of your throne, so I come, because in truth, only you can save.

In Revelations 3:8, you say ” I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.”

My strength is failing, for daily I’m beset and assaulted by battles of the mind, body and soul, and I cannot see clearly, but you promised to open these steel doors that seem impenetrable and to level these mountains that seem immovable. Remember your promise to me Lord and rouse yourself for your Name’s sake in Jesus’s Name.

Father, I thank you for the victory assured me in 1 Corinthians 15:57 in Jesus’s Name.

And now I declare

Psalm 24
7 Lift up your heads, O you gates; be lifted up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in.
8 Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.

Because your battle prowess is legendary, as Almighty God who knows and sees all, I trust you.

Lord of Lords, I repent of every moment I have taken my eyes off of you and looked to myself and let the cords of unbelief wrap themselves around my heart, stifling your Holy Spirit.

I know this word to be true:

Isaiah 51
12 “I, even I, am he who comforts you. Who are you that you fear mortal men, the sons of men, who are but grass,
13 that you forget the LORD your Maker, who stretched out the heavens and laid the foundations of the earth, that you live in constant terror every day because of the wrath of the oppressor, who is bent on destruction? For where is the wrath of the oppressor?
14 The cowering prisoners will soon be set free; they will not die in their dungeon, nor will they lack bread.

Lord of Lords, through the eyes of men and our own eyes, it apears all is lost: Anarchy prevails without and within, and clear thought is hard to come by: The enemy of our souls wreaks havoc on our emotions, vision, dreams, and preys on the little strength we have left.

And yet, by your Holy Spirit, from the ashes of defeat, we rise victorious for you are the ressurection and the life.

Ezekiel 37
3 He asked me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” I said, “O Sovereign LORD, you alone know.”
4 Then he said to me, “Prophesy to these bones and say to them, ‘Dry bones, hear the word of the LORD!
5 This is what the Sovereign LORD says to these bones: I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life.
6 I will attach tendons to you and make flesh come upon you and cover you with skin; I will put breath in you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the LORD.’ ”
7 So I prophesied as I was commanded. And as I was prophesying, there was a noise, a rattling sound, and the bones came together, bone to bone.
8 I looked, and tendons and flesh appeared on them and skin covered them, but there was no breath in them.
9 Then he said to me, “Prophesy to the breath; prophesy, son of man, and say to it, ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe into these slain, that they may live.’ ”
10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and breath entered them; they came to life and stood up on their feet–a vast army..

Indeed I know that the dry bones of our lives can live: As I sing my song in this desert, I know that you’re a promise keeper: I know who you are: I may not have much left, but you provide: You hear my every prayer and you’re by my side: You Lord are righting every wrong: You’re my Sun in the night, my bright morning Star, the Alpha and Omega. There’s nothing you can not do.

Lord help us to live only in response to you, and to mirror you in all our ways, acknowledging your sovereignty in all things: What a mighty God you are!

In Jesus’s Name, Shalom
