Standing in the Gap, Praying for the Lost

Standing in the Gap, Praying for the Lost.

Abba Father, You are truly an amazing God. You are deserving of all my praises. I love You and adore You, for You are good and your mercy is everlasting.

Lord, today I thought of some old friends and others who are lost. I thank You, that You are the God of my salvation and in You I place my trust. Thank You for preparing me to be used as Your instrument of love. You are my motivation to seek the lost sheep.

I believe that You are able to do exceeding abundantly over all that I could ever ask or think. Lord, just as You were there for me when I was totally broken, give me the strength and courage to do the same for others.

Matthew 5:14  You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.

Breaking all Bondage

Thank you for the boldness to preach the Gospel to the lost and the anointing that breaks every yolk of bondage. Thank you Father, for every time I speak Your Word and share Your love to the lost, chains are broken, in the name of Jesus.

My God, the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in You. These weapons are powerful for pulling down all strongholds. They cast down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of You God.

And they bring every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, being ready to punish all disobedience when Your obedience is fulfilled.

Matthew 9:37-38 Then He said to His disciples, the harvest truly is plentiful,but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.

Your Word never goes void

Thank You, that I will always be controlled, filled and led by your Spirit. My heart will always be humble and compassionate towards others. Your Word never goes void but it penetrates to the deepest parts of their broken hearts, leading them to repentance and to realizing their need for You.

I declare, Lord, in the name of Jesus, the lost shall be found in You. I declare them healed, saved and delivered, for it is not by might, not by power, but by your Holy Spirit.

Lord, I declare that they shall be used for Your kingdom’s purpose in the name of Jesus and they will testify of the great things that You have done for them.

I declare that they are now Your instruments just as You have used me to stand in the gap for them. Thank You, Jesus and to You I give all the honor and glory, Amen!

John 15:12 This is My commandment,that you love one another as I have loved you.

1 Timothy 4:16 Take heed to yourself and to the doctrine. Continue in them, for in doing this you will save both yourself and those who hear you.

 

Spread the love

  1. Almighty Father,
    We pray to be Your humbled vessels
    As You fill us in Your spirits and armour
    May we speak Your words of love, forgiveness and compassion
    And bring the lost to receive Your regenerating Grace and mercy
    Amen! 

  2. That was a beautiful prayer, I just prayed it out loud as I read it. So many are walking around lost, completely bound, in need of deliverance, believing the lies of this world, repeatedly denying that God exists…. If we truly follow Christ it is our responsibility to pray for and reach out to all of them, to tell the truth, to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. God have mercy on this world. With everything going on in this world right now, all the persecution, all of the sin, day in day out, that is what we can do, stand in the gap. If we as Christians don’t, who will?

      God bless you Cynthia for your humble and uplifting post. Every word you said 2 years ago is still true today.I believe that Prayer is one of the most wonderful privileges we have and those who fall to their knees in humility and supplication to God, surrendering their power to Him completely and trusting in the integrity of His promise are rewarded in overwhelming measure for their faith. Thank you once again for your encouraging post. Yvonne Marie Miller
