The Father is Leading Us to Worship in a New Way – Part 8

The Focus of Our Worship is His Worthiness

“Worthy is the Lamb! Worthy is the Lamb! In Revelation 4 and 5, it says, ‘Come up here, John. Let Me show you a different level of worship than is going on in the seven churches around you.’ There are times where we are in a particular form of worship and the Lord says, ‘Come up here and let me show you beyond what your experience is.’ The whole Book of Revelation is a rearrangement of worship and how God is saying, ‘This is how the 7 churches, the predominant churches of the territory and in the world, are worshipping right now. John, come up here.’ Then, John says, ‘I heard the sound of a trumpet, then, all of a sudden, he showed me a door into a new worship room.’ That’s what the Lord is doing right now. He’s saying to us, ‘Come up here. I AM Father. I AM the beginning of worship. I AM the beginning of your expression of worship back to me. Come up here. Let Me show you something.’ Worship is linked with worthiness. Also, God is wealthy. A lot of times, we are expressing our love for Him, because He is wealthy and we want some of His wealth, as opposed to Him just being worthy. This applies to all of us. He wants to give us a portion of His wealth. However, He wants us to understand that He is worthy and He owns the cattle on a thousand hills. Once we understand His worthiness, He opens the door to His wealthiness. He is saying to us now, ‘Come up here and worship in a new way, because I have got a bunch of wealth I need to hand out this year. I can’t give My wealth out, if you won’t allow me to rearrange My worship.’” (Chuck Pierce)

“Worthy are You, our Lord and our God, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, and because of Your will they existed, and were created.” (Revelation 4:11; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Worship Him in the prayer below. Continue with your own words that express His worthiness.
  • Expect His breakthroughs in your life, but focus on His great worth!
  • Worship Him over America with that same prayer and add your own expression of His worthiness.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we ask You to grant us revelation of Your worthiness. You alone are God. Forgive us when we treat You as One who is common, instead of the magnificent One. You are so worthy of our worship! You are the only one who is! We worship You, Holy Father with Your Word from 1 Chronicles 16: 23-36. 

“Sing to the Lord, all the earth; proclaim his salvation day after day.

Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples.

For great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; he is to be feared above all gods.

For all the gods of the nations are idols, but the Lord made the heavens.

Splendor and majesty are before him; strength and joy are in his dwelling place.

Ascribe to the Lord, all you families of nations, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.

Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name; bring an offering and come before him.

Worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness.

Tremble before him, all the earth!

The world is firmly established; it cannot be moved.

Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let them say among the nations, ‘The Lord reigns!’

Let the sea resound, and all that is in it; let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them!

Let the trees of the forest sing, let them sing for joy before the Lord, for he comes to judge the earth.

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.

Cry out, ‘Save us, God our Savior; gather us and deliver us from the nations; that we may give thanks to your holy name, and glory in your praise.’

Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting.” 

You are worthy of our worship, wonderful One! We worship You in Jesus’ name, amen.

Today’s decree:

Worthy are You, our Lord and our God, to receive glory and honor and power!

The Father is Leading Us to Worship in a New Way – Part 7

The Pre-eminence of the Father in Your Life

“Worship is the priority we place on who God is in our life and where He is in our priorities. Put Him first. Seek ye the Kingdom first, and everything else will be added to you. The choices you make determine your priorities. Where is He? How are you choosing Him in your everyday life? That becomes very important in how we worship. Your worship expresses the deity or what is preeminent, in your heart. What comes out of your mouth is what is in your heart. You can capture what is preeminent in your life by hearing what is coming out of your mouth. When you hear some things come out of your mouth, you should be saying, ‘Oh, my goodness. How did that find its way into my soul?’ When you hear it, you can grab hold of the spirit behind it and immediately deal with it. Get it out. That’s why we have people in our lives that God has given us to help us stay in a place of preeminence with the Father. It’s good when you say something and a fellow Believer says to you, ‘That wasn’t right. You just cursed yourself.’ That becomes important as you move forward.” (Chuck Pierce)

“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” (Matthew 6:33; KJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray the prayer below over your personal life.
  • Now, make that your prayer over our nation.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, at times our lives are challenging. Sometimes, we face things we do not understand and that we do not know how to deal with. We see our sinfulness and the enemy tries to make us hide ourselves from you, instead of coming boldly to Your throne of grace.  Keep us worshipping You and reminding ourselves of Your love and commitment. We join together today and pray Psalm 29. We choose to worship You, regardless of our circumstances, for You are worthy! 

“Proclaim his majesty, all you mighty champions, you sons of Almighty God, giving all the glory and strength back to him. Be in awe before his majesty. Be in awe before such power and might! Come worship wonderful Yahweh, arrayed in all His splendor, bowing in worship as he appears in the beauty of holiness. Give him the honor due his name. Worship Him wearing the glory-garments of your holy, priestly calling! The voice of the Lord echoes through the skies and seas. The Glory-God reigns as He thunders in the clouds. So powerful is His voice, so brilliant and bright, how majestic as He thunders over the great waters! His tympanic thunder topples the strongest of trees. His symphonic sound splinters the mighty forests. Now He moves Zion’s mountains by the might of His voice, shaking the snowy peaks with His ear-splitting sound! The lightning-fire flashes, striking as He speaks. God reveals himself when He makes the fault lines quake, shaking deserts, speaking His voice. God’s mighty voice makes the deer to give birth.

His thunderbolt voice lays the forest bare. In His temple all fall before Him with each one shouting, ‘Glory, glory, the God of glory!’ Above the furious flood, the Enthroned One reigns, the King-God rules with eternity at His side. This is the one who gives His strength and might to His people. This is the Lord giving us His kiss of peace.” (Psalm 29; TPT) Thank you, Jesus, amen.

Today’s decree:

Making the Father our first choice each day will bring freedom to the captives!

The Father is Leading Us to Worship in a New Way – Part 6

Are You Worshipping Where You Are?

“Some religious people say that some Christians go to football games and worship an idol when they scream. Not necessarily. They are just screaming for their favorite football team. If the Father remains preeminent in their life at the football stadium, they’re fine! This is what’s keeping us from coming into the next harvest. We don’t see ourselves in worship when we’re having to sit in a place that’s not the sanctuary. I have to see myself in worship on a plane. I have to see myself in worship at work. Sometimes the only place we can go to eat when our team is traveling overseas is to the bar, because it’s so late or in the middle of the night. We have to see ourselves in worship there. We have to be the influencers in that place. We have to bring Him into and loose Him into that place. If you do that, then all of a sudden, His atmosphere begins to permeate the atmosphere you are sitting in. You have to see yourself in worship when you go out to eat, because all eating when you are with other Believers is communion. You have to go out there and have a worship attitude, so you can express Who is preeminent in your life. It’s not about you just running up to everyone and asking them if they want to get saved. That can scare people off. But if they see Him as preeminent in your life, and you’re voice reflects that, and your conduct reflects that, the lost will be drawn to Him. Now, if football is what is preeminent in your life, that is what you are worshipping.” (Chuck Pierce)

“For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence. For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell.” (Colossians 1:16-19; NKJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Examine yourself and ask the Lord what things are preeminent in you. Make heart adjustments, if need be.
  • Ask the Father to show you how to make Him preeminent in your life everywhere you go.
  • Pray for the Church to be comfortable worshipping Him in all the public places we go every day.
  • Intercede for the Body of Christ to honor the Lord and make Him preeminent.
  • Pray for the world to be convicted by His Presence in Christ’s worshipful ones in the public square. May they be drawn to Jesus by our example and love of Him.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, You see all things and know all things, and You tell me I am not able to know my own heart. So, please examine my heart today for places of preeminence. What has taken preeminence in my heart? Is it You or something or someone other than You. I will wait for Your determination and revelation. Do a work in me, so that I am not embarrassed or afraid to honor You everywhere I go. I want Your preeminence in my life to show any place I find myself—at work, at play, traveling, at family events—anywhere. Lord, let an attitude of worship permeate my life. Let You be seen in me at all times. Let those around me think, “There is something different about that person.” Then, let me be able to share what that is—You in me. Let the whole Church start to live like this! Break fear and religion off of us. Fear keeps us from sharing You, and religious motivations and activities keep others from wanting You. When we share You with an expression of love, honor and place of Your preeminence in our lives, what can keep the lost from You? Grace us, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

We will make Him preeminent in every place we find ourselves! Then, He will be seen in the earth!

God is Rearranging Worship

“We are in a new move of the Holy Spirit. What does that mean to us? That means that the third person of the Trinity is working on you from the inside out. Our Father inside of you, by the power of His Spirit, is trying to break out and make you into who you are called to be in this season! The Father is saying, ‘I am getting ready to divinely rearrange worship.’ Father is over worship. So, if He is going to divinely rearrange it, we are going to go with the Parent of the initiation of what we’re doing. I have been hearing the Father say for the last week, ‘I am divinely rearranging worship.’ So, I finally said to Him, ‘Happy Father’s Day! I want You to get what You want. I want to be able to provide for You what You are looking for.’ Start thinking, ‘How am I going to express myself to Him, so He can say, ‘Well done, My good and faithful servant.’ That’s Father’s Day to Him. The Lord also said to me, ‘Define what worship is, Chuck, because many don’t know what it is, therefore they are not going to know when I rearrange it.’ So, I began to seek Him over how He defines worship. I began to see that the expression of the way we worship is how we define worship, rather than what worship really is. The Lord is saying, ‘I’ve got to shift your expressions. I have to bring you to a place where you understand worship, so I can rearrange it.’ Worship isn’t music. Worship is to honor with extravagant love and submission that which is preeminent in our life.” (Chuck Pierce)

“And Samuel said, ‘Has the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to listen, than the fat of rams.’” (1 Samuel 15:22; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Tell the Lord that You want Him to receive what He wants from you in worship.
  • Say, “I want to be able to provide for You what You are looking for as I worship.”
  • Search the Bible for the word worship and begin to get a fresh revelation of what worship is.
  • Worship Him in the new revelation you have gained.
  • Ask Him to rearrange worship in your life and to make you a facilitator of worship-rearranging in those places you have authority. (Pastors, prayer leaders, heads of families, business owners, etc., this is for you.)

A prayer you can pray:

Father, You are worthy of our worship. We want to worship You the way You want to be worshipped. We want to understand worship and participate in this season of You rearranging worship in the Church. We want to be able to provide for You what You are looking for in worship. Draw us to Your Word and teach us. Open our eyes to see what worship of our God means. We are stuck in ruts and limited to the concept of worship as singing. It is so much more! Let every expression of worship we see in the Word begin to flow from our hearts to You, Heavenly Father. Make us worship rearrangers. Make us facilitators of greater expressions of worship—heaven meeting earth. It is time for worship filled with Your Presence. We make You preeminent in our lives and meetings, inside and outside the walls of our meeting places, Lord. Make worship in our midst all that You desire to receive from we, Your people, in Jesus’ name, amen.

Today’s decree:

God is rearranging worship in His Church and He will be seen in our expressions of love and our submission to Him!

Our Father’s Transforming Power

“Some of you are limiting yourselves based upon your earthly lineage. Some of you are forgetting that He created your spirit. Though you may have all these curses in your family lineage, you are limiting Him from breaking through in your spirit to break off everything in your earthly lineage. When we pray, ‘Our Father who art in heaven,’ we are saying three things; He has a realm and scope that we’re honoring. We are saying that He has a reign and power to rule in a way that nobody on earth has the power to rule. We are saying that He has a royal authority that brings you out of poverty. Even though you might have been on the wrong side of the tracks, He can seat you in the palace. I don’t think we think like this. I think we get bound in who we were, and daddy was, and grand-daddy was, and great-grand-daddy was. We get bound in all their mistakes. Then, we get bound in all our mistakes. But, there’s a different scope that God is calling you to. There’s a different power God has for you. There’s a different royalty that you are about to wear.” (Chuck Pierce)

“In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name.” (Matthew 6:9; NKJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Repent for limiting the Lord.
  • Ask God to reveal Himself to you as Heavenly Father, full of power, full of Glory, able to break through all the attack of the enemy against you.
  • Say, “Father, who art in heaven.” Read what Chuck says about this statement above. Now, say it again and again until the revelation of the statement sinks in.
  • Acknowledge His reign and ruling power over your life.
  • Call for His reign and power to break through in the earth realm and in America in a new way.
  • Reject any curses in your family lineage and say, “Father, You have the authority to break all poverty off of my life—financial poverty, relational poverty, and spiritual poverty. I am no longer bound by the earthly sins and iniquities of my earthly fore-fathers. You are my Heavenly Father and I am now in the lineage of Jesus Christ.”

A prayer you can pray:

Father, glorious Heavenly Father, hallowed be Thy Name! Maker of all things, You still intimately care for me. Forgive my limiting of Your power in my life, due to my lack of revelation as to who You really are. I have allowed my view of earthly fathers and mothers, and my human lineage, to dictate my view of You. Reveal Yourself to me at a deeper level as Heavenly Father, full of power, grace and Glory! Heavenly Father, You are the one fighting for me. What can the devil do to me, if this is so? Father, who art in heaven. Father, who art in heaven. Father, who art in heaven! You rule! You reign! You are the Maker and You are the Breaker! You are the one bringing breakthrough to me and to my country! Hallelujah! My God reigns! You destroyed the power of past sin and iniquity when I made  Jesus my Savior and Lord. Father, You have the authority to break all poverty off of my life—financial poverty, relational poverty, and spiritual poverty. I am no longer bound by the earthly sins and iniquities of my earthly fore-fathers. You are my Heavenly Father and I am now in the lineage of Jesus Christ with all of the blessings and promises that salvation carries. Amen.

Today’s decree:

God’s royal power can break us free from our earthly lineage and curses!

PRAYER FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP

Tuesday evening Pastor Paula White prayed for President Trump. Let’s pray that prayer together today:

Father, I come to You in the name of Jesus, and first and foremost, I give You thanks for our great United States. I give You thanks for our president, and for Your blessings, and Your goodness. Your Word declares in Psalms chapter 34 and verse 1 that I will bless the Lord at all times and His praise shall continually be in my mouth. So, we thank You and we bless You, God, for Your goodness, for Your grace, for Your mercy. I pray for the Spirit of the Lord to rest upon our president. Let Your favor cause his horn, his power, to be exalted according to Psalms chapter 89 and verse 17. Lord, Your Word says in Psalms chapter 2, verses 1 through 4, “Why do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth rise up and rulers ban together against the Lord and against His anointed, saying, ‘Let us break their chains and throw off their shackles.’ The One enthroned in the heavens laughs. The Lord scoffs at them.”

Lord, You have raised President Trump up for such a time as this. You are a God that reveals secrets, so reveal the secrets and the deep things to President Trump, according to Daniel 2, verse 22. Make known unto Him the mystery of Your Will. I declare that skillful and godly wisdom have entered into the heart of our President and knowledge is pleasant to him. Father, we ask You to compass him with men and women, and make their heart and ears attentive to godly counsel, to do that which is right in Your sight.

Let every evil veil of deception be removed from people’s eyes in the name, which is above every name, the name of Jesus Christ. For You said in Your Word in Ephesians 6, verse 12, that we’re not wrestling against flesh and blood, but against principalities, powers, against the rulers of darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. So right now, let every demonic network that has aligned itself against the purpose, against the calling of President Trump, let it be broken. Let it be torn down in the name of Jesus. Let the counsel of the wicked be spoiled right now, according to Job chapter 12, verse 17. I declare that President Trump will overcome every strategy from hell and every strategy from the enemy. Every strategy. He will fulfill his calling and his destiny. Destroy and divide their tongues, O Lord, according to Psalms chapter 55, verse 9. Give President Trump strength to bring forth his destiny according to Isaiah chapter 66, verse 9. Let the secret council of wickedness be turned to foolishness, right now, in Jesus’ name. I declare that no weapon formed against him, his family, his calling, his purpose, this council, will be able to be formed.

Now, I declare that You will surround him and protect him from all destruction, Let the angel of the Lord encamp all about him, and around his family in accordance with Psalms chapter 34, verse 7. Establish him in righteousness, and let oppression be far from him, according to Isaiah 54:14. I deploy the hand of God to work for him in the name of Jesus. I secure his calling. I secure his purpose. I secure his family. And, we secure victory in the name which is above every name, the name that has never failed for this nation, the name of Jesus Christ. Everybody said, amen!

The Father is Leading Us to Worship in a New Way – Part 3

Honoring the Father

“God is our ‘Beginning Parent’. There are some things we need to understand about our Beginning Parent. This is one of America’s problems right now. So many do not know their Beginning Parent. If we don’t understand our Beginning Parent, we will have a hard time understanding our makeup. We need to say, ‘I understand where I am in the earth, but there’s a different realm for me. There’s a different dimension for me.’ Each one has to determine their lineage, spiritually, and their beginning parenthood. If you don’t make that transference (through salvation), all you have is your earthly inheritance. This is why it really doesn’t matter if you can’t determine your beginning parent in the earth, because some don’t even know who their natural father and mother were. If You know God as your Beginning Parent, then you can say, ‘I can go on up, because I’ve got the best there is. I’ll just start with God being my Father. He created my spirit. So, instead of me trying to work to figure out who I am in soul and body and in the earth realm, I’ll just start from a heavenly realm and work from the inside out.’ If you know who your Father is from the start, then you will be who the Father meant you to be from the beginning. Most of us are trying to work from the earthly dimension of who somebody wanted us to be. It will wear you out if you are trying to be what someone wants you to be in the earth realm.” (Chuck Pierce)

“As a father shows compassion to his children, so the Lord shows compassion to those who fear him.” (Psalm 103:13; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Say, “God is my Beginning Parent.”
  • Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal the Heavenly Father as your Good Father, your Beginning Parent.
  • Declare, “I understand where I am in the earth, but there’s a different realm for me. There’s a different dimension for me. It is a place my Good Father has prepared for me. There is a new freedom for me in that place.”
  • Invite the Lord to break any hard places in you where He wants His riches to rise up out of you. Do not be afraid. His love will do this.
  • Say back to the Lord, “There’s a different realm for me than the place I am in the earth realm. There’s a different dimension God has prepared for me.”

A prayer you can pray:

Father, reveal Yourself to me as my Beginning Parent. Lord, help me to see myself the way You see me. I need to move the way You made me to move. I need to do the things You created for me to do in the earth. If I can’t see myself through Your eyes, my loving Father’s eyes, then, I will never be truly free to worship You! As I read the prophet’s words, I am being set free! I have felt bogged down with everyone’s idea of who I should be. It can wear me out! I feel beat up at times by the earthly expectations of me. I need to see me through Your eyes, so I can see from a spiritual perspective and get free of what I am dealing with. I decree, “Your Spirit will cause me to see Your love for me. Your Spirit will reveal Father to me. Your Spirit will trump my mood.” The Father says, “I know You’re going through some hard things and you’re feeling hit over and over again. But, I have to break that hard place in you. As a good Father, I have to break it—so the Glory can come shining through you! Understand how a Good Father is. I see the places where you are trapped and held back and I have to break that earthly influence off you, so you can be who I created you to be. There are spoils under that hardpan of yours. There’s oil under that hardpan of yours. There’s a new well that I can bring forth. Let Me break it until the gold is bubbling up out of you.” Who You created me to be is being revealed in the earth realm, Good Father. Amen.

Today’s decree:

We have a heavenly inheritance from God, our Beginning Parent!

The Father is Leading Us to Worship in a New Way – Part 1

He is the Father of Fathers

“Look at 1 Corinthians 4:14. It says you have few fathers. Paul is talking about fathers in the earthly realm. This is something confusing in the Church. You have many teachers, but you have few fathers in your life. You have to look and see who is being used to father your spirit by Father. This is what alignment should really be about. Many say they want to be aligned with this one or that one, but what they really want to be is taught. When you are truly aligned, you submit yourself to be reformed. Without this understanding, we can feel and act abandoned. We say that person has an orphan spirit. So, instead of coming into our inheritance that Father is offering us, we wander and feel rejected. We need to come into that inheritance and understand He is a good Father, because that is what causes us to worship Him. Look at Matthew 6:5-9. Read it and mediate on verse 6 and verse 9. If I have one desire for you, it would be that you would understand that He is a good Father, and if we ask Him for something, we would see Him open that up to us. I want to see you trust Him with things in private, then see Him openly reward you for your private worship.” (Chuck Pierce)

“And when you pray, you shall not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words. Therefore do not be like them. For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him. 9 In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name.” (Matthew 6:5-9; NKJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Say, “Lord, Father me.”
  • Intercede for anyone the Lord has placed in your life who “fathers” your spirit. This is not those who teach you, but anyone who ministers the Father heart of God to your spirit.
  • Say, “Father, reform me.”
  • Ask the Lord for your inheritance.
  • Worship Him!
  • Decree that the things you are asking Him for in private, He will reward you for openly.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, Father me. We, Your Church, have many teachers, but not many fathers. Thank You for those who do. (If you have any true “fathers” who nurture your spirit, bless them and intercede for them.) Raise up spiritual mothers and fathers for this next generation. We need them. We need their gift to speak truth into our lives, to encourage and correct. We need those who nurture without enabling, thereby helping the Body to grow into maturity in Christ. Reform us, Father. Mature us, so You can entrust us with the inheritance You want to release to us. Do not allow the enemy to hold our inheritance from us. Don’t let us think that we are abandoned and orphans with an inheritance. You have alloted a portion to each of us that will help us advance Your Kingdom. The inheritance is to bless us, but also fulfills Your heart’s plan for mankind. We worship You, for You are so good to us! As we worship You in our private time with You, You will pour out Your blessings on us, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Today’s decree:

Father, we worship Your Holy Name!

The Father is Leading Us to Worship in a New Way – Part 1

God as Father

“The Lord said to me about 2 in the morning on Father’s Day, ‘I’m rearranging worship.’ Turn and tell somebody or text somebody, ‘The Father is rearranging the way we worship.’ This led me to dig in and study the Bible about this topic and the more I dug into it, the more I saw that the two are one – honoring the Father, and allowing the Father to rearrange worship. In order to understand this, we have to understand the term ‘father’ from looking at our heavenly Father. Too many define ‘father’ from our earthly relationships. If you do that, you are going to miss the dynamic of who Father really is in your life. You are also going to miss coming into a new place of worship. The description of Father begins with the first verse in scripture, ‘In the beginning, God (Father).’ ‘Father’ is the beginning concept each one of us has to have to come into the fullness of who we are. “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.’ The power of creation is in Father. This begins to define who we are. Hebrews 1 and 2 are filled with this concept. Not only did Father create man, you are just another generation of His creation. Your earthly mom and dad may have created, with the egg and sperm, your body and soul, but your spirit was created by God. You will never be complete until your spirit realigns with the Creator. This is important to remember when you pray for people. Our spirit needs to be fathered by the One that made it.” (Chuck Pierce)

“But now, O Lord, you are our Father; we are the clay, and you are our potter; we are all the work of your hand.” (Isaiah 64:8; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Say, “Father, we honor You!”
  • Acknowledge to the Father that He created you. Now, listen, don’t be flippant with this. This is important. He created you with a distinct personality, with distinct gifts, with a distinct purpose for the exact time in which you live. Let all of that sink in as you thank Him for creating you.
  • Invite God to “father” your spirit. Understand that He is not like any earthly father you may have or have had. Look up scriptures on God the Father to help you.
  • Read Hebrews 1 and 2, meditate on it and pray through it.

A prayer you can pray:

“Father.” What a powerful word that we don’t think about much. Heavenly Father. God, my Father, I honor You! I worship You and want to worship You more fully than ever before. Show me anew who You are as Father. You are my Creator. Show me who You really created me to be. What did You take joy in adding to my personality? What gifts did You give me and for what purposes did You give them to me? What are Your Divine purposes for my life? Good Father, what am I missing of Your goodness to me? God, I invite You to “father” my spirit. Minister, train, encourage, discipline my spirit, as only You, Heavenly Father, know how. I know I will be different as You do so. Forgive me for not thinking to invite You to do this before now. How much I may have missed, thinking You only cared about my salvation and basic belief structure. As I walk through the Word, learning about You as Father, teach me new things. Reveal yourself to me in new ways. I can feel the worship already rising up within me from a new place of expectation and gratitude! As I read through Hebrews 1 and 2, let my heart overflow with worship and honor to You, my Father! Amen.

Today’s decree:

God the Father is worthy of our honor! Honor Him!

Racism Against African Americans and the Link to Abortion – Part 1

“When we are talking about abortion and the race issue comes up, some people think that’s just kind of a forced bringing of two things together. However, if you look at the history of abortion in America, you can see what was really going on and it has everything to do with race. It has to do with the dehumanizing of African Americans. It’s easier to eliminate someone when they have been dehumanized. African Americans have been fighting against that for quite some time. In 1905 there was an animal trainer in Africa named Ota Benga. He was very good at what he did. A man from the Eugenics Society at the time wanted to bring Ota Benga to America. Eugenicists believed in scarcity and the survival of a primary species – and that species was the white race. They were racists. They felt that people of color, the poor, the disabled, etc., were undesirable to society and should be eliminated. It was very popular in England, America, and other parts of Europe, primarily. Adolph Hitler later adopted this point of view.

So this eugenicist captured Ota Benga and put him in a cage with monkeys and apes and put him in the World’s Fair to say that Africans were closer to apes and monkeys than humans on an evolutionary scale. In 1906, another man bought Ota Benga and the display and put them in the Bronx Zoo as an educational exhibit! This was long past the end of slavery. Over 40,000 people a weekend came to see this exhibit. Ota Benga, such a gifted man, eventually committed suicide because of the way he was treated.

Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, was a Eugenicist in that time period, as well. She was a racist who recommended birth control for the ‘undesirables’. She promoted sterilization and abortion to control lower-class and ‘colored’ populations. Her first abortion clinic was opened in Harlem, New York, an African American community. Even today, most Planned Parenthood clinics are in African American neighborhoods across the nation. They are still trying to control the population of those people they think are going to be ‘the dregs of  society’.” (Will Ford)

“He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation.” (Acts 17:26; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Cry out for eyes to see the root of abortion in America! It is rooted in racism.
  • Ask God for His heart for people that are a different color or culture than yours.
  • Intercede for this appalling background information to be known by the public, to be taught in our schools, so history cannot repeat itself.
  • Pray for unity in the Body of Christ, that we may be one, even as Christ and the Father and the Holy Spirit are One.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, forgive our society for the sin of racism, leading to massive rates of abortion of the African American community in our country. The elephant in the room when we talk about abortion in America is eugenics and racism. It’s all connected. This is a powerful truth that we must see, so we can repent and work to correct history. We must intercede and we must work hard to undo the damage done to African Americans. The blood of their children is crying out from the land. We have distanced ourselves from the everyday reality of our Black brothers and sisters. We have not loved one another, even as we love ourselves. We thank You that Life is taking on a whole new value in our country now, Lord. You are giving us Your Life in exchange for all the death we have allowed, even promoted, to come into our land. Science has invalidated many of the claims that eugenicists and other racists leaned on in the past to separate and destroy whole groups of people. Science is invalidating arguments from abortionists that life in the womb is nothing more than a blob of tissue. We say that African Americans and all others of various races will be seen in all their beauty and giftedness in our country. Babies in the womb will be seen in all their beauty and giftedness. We will not come up with any excuses to destroy life any longer! In Jesus’ Name, amen.

Today’s decree:

We are done with racism in America! Seeing the beauty and giftedness of every race will help us value the hidden life in the womb.
