Dear Father,

I bring before you my siblings and our relationship with each other. I pray for love to be displayed in full expression. I ask that You knit us together in love, truth and unity.

Prayer For Unsaved Loved Ones

Acts 16:31 NKJV
“So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.”

Holy Spirit,
Hover over my unsaved loved ones. Give each one a revelation of Jesus by Your Spirit. Let the light of liberty shine into each one of them. Place the armor of God upon each one.

Birth repentance in each one – bring forth an unveiling. Let there be God-given revelation. Release Your light into them.

Cause every seed that has been sown into them to bring forth fruit producing revelation.

Give each of them a godly mindset. Shield each one of them from Satan’s thoughts and temptations. Put a hedge of protection around them.
Place godly people in their pathway each day.

Thank You, Lord, for Your mercy and Your grace. Thank You that the children of the righteous SHALL be saved.

In Jesus’ name, Amen

Family Hedge Of Protection

Family Hedge Of Protection

Dear Father,
I lift up my family to You and pray for a hedge of protection around each one of us. I thank-you for Your Word and Your promise of protection. You are a wall of fire around my family and You set Your angels all around us. My family dwells in the secret place of the Most High and abides under the shadow of the Almighty. I say of You, Lord, You are our refuge and fortress, in You we will trust. You cover us with Your feathers, and under Your wings we shall abide. My family shall not be afraid of the terror by night or the fiery dart that flies by day. Only with our eyes will we behold and see the reward of the wicked. Because my family have made You, Lord, our refuge and fortress, no evil shall befall us – no accident will overtake us – neither shall any plague or calamity come near us. For You give Your angels charge over my family, to keep us in all Your ways. Father, because You have set Your love upon my family therefore will You deliver us. My family shall call upon You, and You will answer us. You will be with my family in time of trouble, and will satisfy them with long life and show us Your salvation. Not a hair on our head shall perish.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.

THE CHURCH AT CORINTH – UNWORTHY MANNER

THE CHURCH AT CORINTH – UNWORTHY MANNER

I Corinthians 11:27-30 NKJV
“Therefore whoever eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread and drink of the cup.
For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. For this reason many are weak and sick among you, and many sleep.”

Paul wrote to the church (to believers) at Corinth about the manner in which they took communion. He warned them (the believers) not to take communion in an unworthy manner. What were they doing that was unworthy? Remember he was talking to the believers in the church – not the lost.

I Corinthians 11:17-22 NKJV
“Now in giving these instructions I do not praise you, since you come together not for the better but for the worse. For first of all, when you come together as a church, I hear that there are divisions among you, and in part I believe it. For there must be factions among you, that those who are approved may be recognized among you.
Therefore when you come together in one place, it is not to eat the Lord’s Supper.
For in eating, each one takes his own supper ahead of others; and one is hungry and another is drunk. What! Do you not have houses to eat and drink in? Or do you despise the church of God and shame those who have nothing? What shall I say to you? Shall I praise you in this? I do not praise you.”

The church at Corinth was drinking the communion wine to get drunk and they were eating the bread for food. Paul instructed them to examine (judge) the manner in which they took communion. Where they taking it (as a church / corporately) to remember Jesus or were they taking it to get full and drunk? To satisfy their flesh or to draw closer to God?

I Corinthians 11:31-34 NKJV
“For if we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged. But when we are judged, we are condemned with the world. Therefore, my brethren, when you come together to eat, wait for another. But if anyone is hungry, let him eat at home, lest you come together for judgment. And the rest I will set in order when I come.”

 

 

Dear Father,
May each of us examine the reason that we receive communion. May we not take it in an unworthy manner. By the power of the Holy Spirit, may we remember Jesus each time we receive communion and desire to draw closer to You.
In Jesus’ name, Amen

FOLLOW THE EXAMPLE OF THE EARLY CHURCH

FOLLOW THE EXAMPLE OF THE EARLY CHURCH

Matthew 7:21-23 NKJV
“Not everyone who says to Me, Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’ “

Communion is a special time of spiritual intimacy with God. God desires to know you (to have intimacy with you.) It is truly the most intimate time that you have with God (even when receiving it in a crowd.) God desires to know (have spiritual intimacy) us corporately as well as individually. The early church had this special intimacy with God on a regular basis.. .

Acts 2:42 NKJV
“And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers.

Acts 20:7 NKJV
“Now on the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul ready to depart the next day, spoke to them and continued his message until midnight.”

Acts 2:46-47 NKJV
“So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved.”

The early church reaped the benefits of corporate communion. There was an anointing upon the church, fresh moves of the Holy Spirit, and a harvest of souls.

 

Dear Father,
Thank-you for the special time of spiritual intimacy with You that we can have through communion. Help us to never neglect this privilege and gift. By the power of the Holy Spirit, may we reap the benefits of corporate communion – an anointing upon the church, fresh moves of the Holy Spirit, and a harvest of souls.
In Jesus’ name, Amen
