Scriptures: 2 Corinthians 10:4-5 | Ephesians 6:10-12| Luke 10:19, 17 and 9:1 | Psalm 91 | Acts 19:11-15 | Revelations 1:17-18 | Isaiah 41:10 Be Determined to Keep Your Peace in Christ: Philippians 4:6-7 | Colossians 3:15
Dear Lord, I claim in your name the power and authority to override fear in my mind. Help me to take every thought captive and make it obedient to you. The enemy seeks to steal my peace, in your name I reclaim the peace that passes all human understanding along with a determined mindset that allows you to sit on the throne of my heart…direct and guide every thought and word that comes out of my mouth.
Everything? Help me to tune into the attachments I have in my life that prevent me from experiencing the fullness of joy, purpose and inner peace you died to give me. Fill me with the grace to release what I have been clinging to in my life for a sense of purpose and identity. Help me to receive you in my mind, will and emotions. I want to emerge from this time of sheltering in place with a resurrected sense of connection to you, and you alone. I am willing to believe that I will never be left empty handed when I surrender all that I am into all that you are. I want freedom in you moving forward.
Questions to Reflect on: Jesus is stopping by today. He asks you to leave everything and to come and follow Him…what is the first thing that pops into your mind that you would want to go back and get or take care of before following Him?
In the midst of the coronavirus. Perhaps you are isolated and feel alone. God sees you and adores you. Jesus died and rose again to win your heart over to the ways of God who sees you and adores you. Do you know Jesus love for you? If not and you want to experience life with knowing He is with you, loves you and for you, pray with us:
Dear Lord, You are the greatest love story told to redeem mankind and restore our relationship with God our Father ever told. Father, you created the world which was good and beautiful. Sin entered through Adam and Eve. Jesus, you died for our sins so that those who believe may spend eternity in Heaven with you. I want to experience your love, mercy and forgiveness in my life. I am sorry for each moment I have wondered from love into selfishness and ugly behavior. Save me, I choose you and I want to begin again. Come into my life and make me your own. I want to know you Lord now moving forward on this journey of life.
If you have prayed this prayer, have confidence that Jesus heard your prayer and answered, He loves and adores you. God has plans for your life…good plans. Surrender yourself to Him. Get involved in a faith based Church family. Get a Bible that has Jesus’ words written in red so that you can experience His mercy and love through the gospel message unlocking your faith and restoration. Watch a powerful account of His life: Jesus of Nazareth by Franco Zeffirelli.

Dear Lord, you would often say: “your faith has made you well, go in peace.” Help us to remember what that feels like to abide in your peace. What it feels like to live by faith rather than sight. Increase our faith factor today. Just like the woman who reached out, touched your cloak and was healed, we reach out to you today for healing for our land. Heal us from all fear, anxiety, worry and doubt. That woman was bound by 12 years and she had faith in you. It’s only been a few weeks and our fears too often override our faith. Come King of Kings, Prince of Peace and heal our land.
