PRAYERS BY ISAIAH-PHILLIPS AKINTOLA
Father, we give you thanks for your eternal love that you have eternally given to us as a seal of your eternal covenant with us your people. We, as your tribe in the earth, today has come again to renew the covenant of eternal memorial in this place; in this place you have ordained for your name to be hallowed in righteousness, peace, and joy in your Holy Spirit. This place, in your son that you have given to every summoned traveler to find rest and peace, even in you has become the place of the return and rest from the weariness of the journey. Yes, we have come individually and corporately as members of your household to again find your voice and strength as we get renewed and reformed in the reality of your eternal desire.
This day is our day of rest since we have stepped out of the sixth day of man. We have entered the boundary line of the seventh day order in you, and our lines have fallen in pleasant places and we have a godly heritage. We have come to find rest in you and with you in the journey of entering your realm of eternal knowledge and fullness. Indeed, you came to give us life and the life in fullness, our desire is to experience and share the full reality of your life, so we may glow in the fullness of your light without any form of shadow.
Father of light, we rest in your covenant of truth as we behold and embrace the sight of the promised Land before us. We are the seal and symbol of your covenant of salt in the earth. We season every sphere and regions of the earth with the illuminating light of your eternal prophetic truth; we are the covenant of sault in our families and communities. We do recognize our place and responsibility as the salt of the earth and the light of the world, and that is the reason why we have returned to this place to be renewed and refreshed in the revelation of your ever-increasing light, so we may not remain weak and dimmed like Eli.
We leave behind the shadows of insecurity, doubt, fear, disappointments and discouragement. We take up our cross and follow your footsteps according to your unique plans for us. We break the strongholds of past hurts and pain that has almost blind and crippled us from journeying unto that eternal height in you. We embrace your identity for us; we bind our spirit, soul, and body to your staying healing power and authority, even as we loosen the chains of darkness over our necks, arms, and feet in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
We cast down thoughts, imagination, and every false declaration that have exalted itself above your prophetic intention and destiny for us. We once again declare that the bondage of Egypt, still lingering within our minds and thoughts, faculties is shattered as we see your light on the truth of your name.
We proclaim upon us that we are not the children of the bondwoman, we are born of Sarah, our mother who is from above. Yes father, all that comes from above is above all earthly influence and dominance. We are from above, because we are born of you, and so we declare in the name of your Son, that the chains of Egypt, Babylon, and the new Age spirt is shattered in our minds and thought patterns. We declare the total liberation of our soul’s faculties, even as we renew and retain the knowledge of our eternal identity in Christ.
We renew the vow of your grace and eternal truth has we celebrate the memorial of Passover and Pentecost in the knowledge of the feast of the revelation of the tabernacle alive within our spirit and corporate communities. We today seek to enter a renewed sense of rest even as we individually and corporately battle the giants and Goliaths of our households and communities.
We know that you are for us and not against us, we therefore allow you to show us the pathway of eternal victory in your name. We let go of the old religious patterns and strategies of operation we have learnt. We have come to a perfected day in your kingdom culture, where all things are seen and done from an ascended reality of truth. We receive the present, current blueprints and direction in our victory in warfare.
We remind ourselves that your plans and purposes for us are plans of good and not evil, so the floodgates of evil may rise against us, but will surely not prevail against us. We are confident that your promised presence will continue to fight for us as we hold our peace in you. We are confident of your promise to always grant us the victory.
Yes, father of light, we have victory in the name of your Son Jesus Christ, our strength and shield. We shall not be moved for Christ rod and staff will comfort us as he prepares a table of heavenly meal for us in the presence of our enemies. We eat this day for strength and courage, and not for pleasure even as we journey further into new frontiers of light and darkness.
Father, we are your children, called by your name. Grant to us the heart and desire to continue to remember that each of us represent a place and a purpose in your eternal prophetic objectives for each other. Help us to love you deeper, help us to love ourselves truly, but most of all, enable us to love your Body and the world you sent us to without fear of rejection. Grant us new sight to see your light and truth in the lives of our members; yes, your body is our member, and we all belong to that member. Help us to know each of our roles, and function in that role as we assist our brothers and sisters’ function in their assigned places.
Father of light, we have come to the place of circumcision, the place of memorial, the place where the two edge-sword of your word cuts and divine the motives and intent of the heart. We ask you today, even as we enter this new junction in our journey to remove from within us everything that does not glorify your name in the earth.
Our desire is to truly and effectively represent your life and nature. Our desire is that men may see you in all we say and do. Remove lies from our lips. Give us a single eye; grant us the lips of the ready writer. Help us to speak words of hope, faith, and courage to the tired and discourage on the journey. Father in the name of your son, we acknowledge our lack of participation in the active knowledge and relationship with the Holy Spirit you sent to lead and guide us into all truth.
Precious Spirit of truth, we repent and turn from this ignorant position we have falsely accepted. We openly acknowledge that we can do nothing without your leading and assistance, so, in this renewed season, we declare that we will learn to trust and wait for your voice to lead us even into all truth. We know that there are deeper realms and realities you eagerly desire to show us in the matters of the kingdom. How foolish and shortsighted we are to assume that what we intellectually and religiously know about your ways and the kingdom of God will give us the right of passage into the realities of the dominion kingdom lifestyle.
We repent and turn to you; lead us, guide us, show us the ancient pathway. Bring us into the ascended dimensions of your prophetic intention for this season. We offer our entire lives, family, and intentions to you. May your kingdom come; may your will be done in us. Make us instruments of your peace where there’s war and hatred even within your household. Help us to hear the cry of the nation’s seeking saviors and deliverance from the bondage of the fall. We are your sons, called by your name. In this place of covenant renewal, we receive re-newness of life. May our sight be recalibrated to see what you see.
May our vision be strengthened again. May we see with clarity the country afar, grant us strength like father Abraham to walk the length and breadth of the land you’ve given to us to possess in this place of rest. Give us the strength of the patriarch Enoch, to journey with you until we are no more, show us the building technology of Noah to construct your eternal intent for our family, city, and generation. Give us the heart of integrity like David to lead a people to the place of your rest. Father of light, our help comes from you, we look up to you to provide and direct our pathway as you make us instrument and channels of blessing to the needy, help us to tenderly but swiftly respond without delay to the cry of the nations.
We are yours, all that we have, all that we have, and hope to become belongs to you, so we totally surrender our lives to you again. As we journey into the next sphere in this transition, grant us the memory to always remember your promise word that says, you will never leave us nor forsake us. Our faith is anchored on your eternal love, promise, and hope. Thank you, father of light, for in your light we see light to journey on.
