PRAYER GUIDE, “GOD’S COVERING,” 15.03.19
Father, how grateful we are that we don’t even have to ask for Your covering if we are walking in Your Word/walking in Your Spirit/walking in obedience/walking in Your Ways, LIVING IN INTIMATE RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU.
Thank-You, Heavenly Father, that You have always provided exclusive protection for those who walked with You: “Do not fear, Abram. I am your shield . . ” (Gen.15:1); Your shield surrounds us! “For You, O Lord, will bless the righteous; With favor You will surround him as with a shield” (Ps.5:12). Thank-You for the comfort we can take in knowing that as long as we are walking in that secret place, that place of intimacy, we are so totally covered.
For those who are not walking in that place of intimacy, there are holes in their armour, thus the Enemy can easily get at them; but Your Love and Your Word is at their disposal, and I pray they will turn to it. Draw them closer by Your Spirit, I pray. Set a fire under these lukewarm walkers, and bring them to that place of passion, for “The one who overcomes thus will be dressed in white clothes; YOU will never blot his name out of the Book of Life” (Rev.3:5).
Psalm 18:1-3, as a personal prayer:
1 I will love You, O Lord, my strength.
2 You are my rock and my fortress and my deliverer;
My God, my strength, in whom I DO trust;
My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
3 I will call upon You, Lord, for YOU ARE worthy to be praised;
So shall I be saved from the Enemy of my soul.
Thank-You, Holy Father, that if I have “made the Lord, who is my refuge,” (Ps.91:9) “my dwelling place,” then “No evil shall befall me . . . angels will protect me . . . .” (Ps.91:10-12). If I have set my love upon You, my Lord, You promise to deliver me; because I acknowledge Who You are, and love You, You will answer when I call, be with me in trouble, and even honour me (Ps.91:14,15) with long life. Thank-You for these wonderful promises, and Yeshua promises that:“If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him” (John 14:23).
Lord, I am so grateful that “You will reward me according to my righteousness; According to the cleanness of my hands You will recompense me”(Ps.18:20,21). Make me to never lose my passion to walk in intimacy/walk in Your Ways/walk in the Spirit, and NOT the flesh, for “if I keep the ways of the Lord, & do not wickedly depart from my God” Your covering will remain in place, defending and protecting me, as the matter should require.
I so appreciate knowing that “At Your rebuke, O Lord, At the blast of the breath of Your nostrils. You can send Your Breath, Your Wind from above, & take me, & draw me out of many waters, & blast the Enemy out of sight. You will deliver me from my strong enemy” (Ps.18:15-17).
I desire to walk in a passion to follow You, to live in intimacy with You; and I take such comfort in knowing then that I am “one who dwells in the secret place of the Most High, & thus abides under the shadow of the Almighty” (Ps.91:1). What a wonderful privilege, this assurance that when I “reside, live, lodge, and am settled” there, making Your secret place my very own home; when I “Abide in You, and You abide in me . . .” (John 15:4); as long as I “keep Your commandments, I will abide in Your love,”(John 15:10), & I am “Your friend if I do whatever You tell me to” (John 15:14), for Your Word assures me that “one who has Your commandments and keeps . . . . loves You will be loved by You, Father and You will love them and manifest Yourself to that one”(John 14:21-23), for “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him” (John 14:23). I can’t even begin to imagine a greater promise of blessing!!! Thank-You, Abba!!!
Thank-You, Heavenly Father, Abba, that I choose to live in the secret place, to surrender all carnal desires, thoughts, hopes, dreams, & every breath, every step I take, every decision, every action and interaction, all of my heart, all of my life to You/Your Will/Your Ways, that I may live my life for You and not for useless self/selfish fleshly pleasures. I want to be always walking in Your ways, by walking in the Spirit, and not in the flesh, keeping Your Word, and thus abiding under the shadow of Your Wing, enjoying the 24/7 coverage of Your protection and blessings, without even asking. What an awesome blessing that is!!! Thank-You, Abba! In Jesus/Yeshua’s Holy Name! Amen.
