Early Sunday morning, we had some very heavy rainfall. It has been very dry here over the last few months, so the rain was certainly a welcomed change from the heat!
But even as the rain fell, I was reminded that there are some who were not prepared for it. They may have a leaky roof. Or they may be living in an area prone to flooding but they have delayed making the proper preparations.
In the same way, so many of us are delaying what we know we should do for our spiritual welfare. We put off reading and studying God’s Word. We postpone praying for another day. We delay our personal praise and worship.
And so, when the rains come, we are not prepared to turn these showers into blessings! Instead we get caught up in the flood and get swept away.
Jeremiah 29:11 tells us : “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Preparation for your success begins now! God is going to bless you so abundantly. But if you are not prepared, you could miss your blessings!
Prayer for Success
Jehovah Jireh, my Provider, bless, guide and protect me, as I journey to and from home this week.

Bless the Workplace
Bless my workplace. I declare success in business today. Let my business be of great service to others, flourishing through decency, honesty and respect for my colleagues and customers.
May I be strong and courageous, making wise decisions guided by the Holy Spirit, and not terrified or discouraged.
Grant me wisdom and calm so that I can rightly access every situation and bring peace and productivity to the work environment.

Success is on its way
I declare and decree that success is coming my way. As I patiently await You, Oh Heavenly King, I will praise You in the hallways.
I chose to step out boldly today in faith knowing that the future holds the fruits of my success and all the hard work and dedication will pay off.
I will look up to the heavens knowing that I made it when Your blessings start pouring down. In Jesus’ mighty name I pray, Amen!
