- Who can find a virtuous woman? her price is far above rubies
Hey everybody! I absolutely can't believe how long it's been since I posted. I had such plans, too, for December and even January, but alas! life intervenes and before you know it it's been weeks and weeks since you posted, and you can't just dive right back in after that long of an absence, can you?? But I am, anyway. Diving right back in, that is!
I was given a copy of this at church yesterday, and enjoyed it so much that I wanted to share it with you. It's called "Prayer of Favor", and it's much more effective if you read it aloud in a good, strong voice. So find yourself someplace private, and read this like you mean it. You might be surprised at how much better it will make you feel.
Prayer of Favor
I declare that I have your favor today.
I declare that I am strong and well able to fulfill my God given destiny; I know you are fighting my battles for me.
I declare that I am a victor and not a victim. I may have been defeated in the past but the past is past, this is a new day. Your word says that "I am the head and not the tail" "I will lend and not borrow". Everything I touch will prosper and succeed according to your perfect will because of your favor, my Father.
I declare that by your stripes I am healed today. I will live and not die. I declare that you are restoring health unto me, and with long life you satisfy me.
Father, today, I declare your favor in my relationship with you, favor in my relationship with my spouse and my family; favor in relationships with my friends, and favor in relationships in my business. I want to thank you for causing me to be at the right place at the right time. I want to thank your for causing people to want to help me.
Today, Father, I want to thank you for blessing me with creativity. I want to thank you for causing me to make good decisions with a clear mind.
I declare that you are smiling down on me today and that your favor will be in everything I do because I am pleasing to you.
I declare that I will be blessed in the city and blessed in the country, blessed going in and blessed going out.
I claim right now Psalm 84:11 that you are blessing me with favor and honor and no good thing will you withhold from me because my walk is blameless, through Christ.
I claim Habakkuk 2:3 that my vision is for an appointed time. Though it may tarry, I will wait for it, for it will surely come.
I declare today that I am filled with your can do power my Father. Between you and me, we are the majority and I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.
I know that your Word says that no man has seen, heard, or even imagined the wonderful things that you have in store for those that love you, and I want to tell you this morning that I love you and I want to thank you for loving me.
God, I want to thank you for your favor today, not because of who I am, but because of whose I am. I am a child of the most high God, the creator of the whole universe.
I commit this day to you, in Jesus name,
Kind of makes me want to sit up straighter and hold my head up higher, doesn't it you?
Until next time...
