A Prayer for You and Our World in 2020
Updated: Apr 15, 2020
More than ever, you and I need life spoken over our lives. I received divine downloads a few weeks ago to share a prayer for you and our world. Prayer changes things. I know it has in my life. If you found this post or the podcast where I recorded the live prayer, it is not by accident.
My prayer life over the last year especially has dramatically changed. I've prayed for years, but over the last year it has transformed dramatically. When I started reading the Bible daily straight through for the first time in 2019, my spirit and prayers changed intensely. A second pivotal point involved waking up at 5 am consistently since July 2019.
I pray this prayer for you and our world in 2020 on the blog and podcast blesses you.
What are you praying for now? How often do you pray? Challenge yourself to write down your prayers and record them on your phone. Bonus: Play your prayers daily on walks and errands.
Prayers for 2020
I come before you first to say, thank you. Thank you for every single blessing that you've given me and that you've given whoever is listening to this message. I pray that you remind them that they are a beautiful, wonderful child of God. I pray that you remind them they're fearfully and wonderfully made.
I pray you, remind them and reveal to them how you pursue each and every one of us. And above all else, how you love God in the mighty name of Jesus. I pray that God you remind them and reveal to them God, the fruits of the Spirit. Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control, as it is written in your word in Galatians 5:22.
I pray you remind them of all the times that you have come through and each and every situation and how you've turned pain into purpose. I pray you reveal to them God that you give us free will. And that's why your Son died for us because of our natures and we live in a fallen world.
But because of your Son and because of your Holy Spirit, and the Wonderful Counselor that you've sent, we are prompted God to follow in your ways. As we walk out this faith journey with you God, I thank you that you are a gentleman you pursue but you do not force people to you God.
I pray that during this time of God above all else, you grant my friend super natural wisdom, supernatural discernment, supernatural patience. As we are walking out this marathon in our lives right now. I pray you remind my friend of all the blessings that they've received God in their life abundantly in every direction.
1 John 4:18 - Perfect Love Drives Out All Fear
Be it with faith, be it with food, be it with friends, be it with family, be it with provision, be it with opportunities, be with experiences, be it with travel, that you have blessed us in so many ways. Thank you for all your reminders in my own life.
As you prompted me to remind me of all the blessings I've been given, that even if you did nothing else, the rest of my life that it's been more than enough and that you are so faithful. I pray you revealed to my friend God to get closer to you and to see God how your word reveals that you are a promise keeper, You are a way maker.
Even when it looks like the circumstances are down to nothing. you are up to everything. And that you move mountains. Your Word says that we have faith as small as a mustard seed, we can say to these mountains move; to these mountains of fear; to these mountains of lack; to these mountains of disbelief; to this these mountains of anxiety; to these mountains of depression.
We say move in the mighty name of Jesus and be cast out to the pit of hell, where you belong. God, I pray in the mighty name of Jesus that today and every day, you have my friend put on the shoes of peace, the belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, the shield of faith The helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit which is the word of God.
I pray God that you bless my friend, through the words that are coming through me God, and I pray less of me and more of you. I pray they would feel your Holy Spirit God through this recording, that they would feel the love of how you so loved the world, you gave your only begotten Son that we may choose life.
And it is by no accident that you divinely directed me to record this prayer on Easter Sunday, because it's been on my heart for a while but you led me to do it today. In 2020, you will lead me to choose the word joy for 2020 in November of last year. You faithfully led me to James and the scripture in James, God, where it states that as we walk through trials, the perseverance produces character, character hope, so that we may be perfect, lacking nothing.
God, that you are more concerned with our characters and the eternal ramifications, that you want us to produce much fruit as your children God. I pray that you would remind my friend God to be salt and light during this time more than ever, to pour themselves out as a blessing for you God. I speak against any and all lack division, fear, anxiety, depression.
God, I pray that you remind them that you Give us God. You work all things out together for our good. And you have plans to prosperous and give us hope and a future that we're walking through unprecedented times. But this isn't the first or the last time that humanity will walk through trials and tribulations.
You said here on Earth, we would have trouble.
In previous generations, people have walked through about viruses, wars, Holocaust, and other historical events. Each and every one of us has a choice God and I pray you lead my friend to make the right choice, to stand firm in their faith, to walk boldly in action, because your Word says God without faith, it's impossible to please God. And Faith without works is dead.
I pray you draw my friend closer God to you. I prayed. You will lead them into their own story and testimony. As you've pulled and compelled me, God, I pray you, they know how deeply love they are. In Jeremiah 31, you say that you have loved us all with an ever lasting love. I pray you fill my friend with that knowledge with that knowing and that they receive it God in Jesus name.
God I speak life and breathe life over God, their health, over their minds. God Your Word says that to be transformed by the renewing of our minds. so that we may test and approve your perfect will. God I pray you give them wisdom and you give them discernment God in all things in all ways, in their lives God in the morning when they wake up, but in their life spiritually, mentally, emotionally relationally, playfully, physically and financially.
God, I pray you give them wisdom and discernment how they're spending their mornings more than ever. I pray God, what however you want to, to bring them to you God, how you've revealed to me my sacred seven and waking up more and more and more at 5 am.
I pray they put first things first and really dive in and dig deep where they're prioritizing their affections God and their treasures. Your Word says where our treasure is there your heart will be also. I pray over my friends mind. I pray for my friends spirit, their soul, their hearts, God that you would create in them of pure heart God. I pray you walk them through being used mightily for Your glory God,
I pray you walk them as you have faithfully walked me from fear to faith. devaluing to purity, self hate, to love, corporate to calling, lies to love, pain to purpose, and bondage to freedom.
Your Word says it is for freedom that we have been set free, and to stand firm and do not allow ourselves to be bonded by a yoke of slavery. Gal 5:1
I pray God gifts to the spirit. I pray wisdom, discernment, understanding God in the name of Jesus, I pray you remind my friends on how to use their gifts, talents and abilities, and you are calling us God more than ever, to double our gifts, talents and abilities and to serve abundantly,
I pray reminding every morning to pray without ceasing to walk in obedience to seek you God. I'm reminded of something Sadie said at Passion City the first time I heard her. She plants her face to exalt your name God, I pray you, break off of us all false gods idolatry, being in bondage to the external, that we claim and eternal worthiness that I and we find our identity and Jesus Christ and everything else is second, third, fourth, fifth.
Your Word says Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart, that you are a jealous God and you don't want any other gods before you God. I pray breaking off any idolatry and false gods. I declare freedom because fear of a man leads to a snare In the name of Jesus.
