June Prayers, Decrees, and Declarations

So wake up, you living gateways!  Lift up your heads, you doorways of eternity!  Welcome the King of Glory, for he is about to come through you.

Psalm 24: 7

 

Manifest your kingdom realm, and cause your every purpose to be fulfilled on earth, just as it is in heaven.

Matthew 6:10

Pray passionately in the Spirit, as you constantly intercede with every form of prayer at all times.  Pray the blessings of God upon all believers.

Ephesians 6:18

Welcome to the new Multiply Concord Prayer Wall format!  We are so honored that you have chosen to join us in unified prayer for the needs of our County and our City.  The new format includes three aspects of communicating with God and through the power and authority given to us by God:  Prayer, Decrees, and Declarations.

For clarification the following definitions are available to assist you with this month’s Prayers:

1)  🙏 (Pray) – communing with God for His help, His favor and His provision. (Philippians 4:6)

2)  📖 (Decree) – firm command toward a situation that is in alignment with God’s Word and carries the same effect in the Spirit as a written law in the natural. (Job 22:28)

3)  🗣️ (Declare) – vocal announcement of something that has already been established, decreed, or promised by God.  Declaring allows us to establish things that are already made available in our lives, even if it’s not already present with our natural eyes. (Psalm 2:7)

As always, we encourage you to put on the full armor of God as you intercede on behalf of the Gates of Influence in our County and City.  Remember, the Glory of the Lord is your rear guard according to Isaiah 58:8.  We bless you as you step into God’s purpose in your life and pray He will return to you above and beyond for your obedience and sacrifice to pray.

This month’s prayer target focuses on the gate of Education.
As we pray over Education in all the gates, let us keep in mind that human definitions of education and knowledge fall short of the wisdom and knowledge of God. Knowing how to be a part of human culture and society is good, but knowing what is important to the author of humanity is better. His thoughts are not our thoughts, and His ways are higher than ours. Mary modeled her humility beautifully as she sat at the feet of our Lord to listen to what He had to say. Nicodemus modeled his open heart and willing desire to embrace the truth of Jesus, even if it was difficult to understand or foreign to his perspective. Let us pray for humility and openness as we bow before the Creator, and ask Him to show us His wisdom.
