O Most Glorious Holy Father, this is indeed the day that You have made, THIS IS THE DAY OF SALVATION, and we do REJOICE in IT. Please go before us and make the crooked places straight. Please go before us and take away any plans for evil that the enemy may have waiting for us. Give us this day the true bread, the bread that comes down from heaven to give LIFE to THE WORLD.
Our hearts and our minds reach out to those who are walking in darkness, whether the sun is shining or not. You are light and in You there is NO darkness, and darkness cannot remain in the presence of light, which is in Your presence. O Most Glorious Holy Father, cause Your Son to SHINE so bright that He will indeed be BRIGHT ENOUGH TO BE THE LIGHT OF THIS WORLD! Please begin to dispel the darkness of this world by causing Your Son to SHINE, SHINE, SHINE! Father, my heart is bursting with praise and adoration for You and for Your GREATNESS. For the kingdom belongs to You and you rule in the kingdoms of men, NOT Satan. Please begin to make this clear, because You have been holding Your peace for so long, that people are beginning to think that the devil is the ruler of this world. O Father, cause Your light to shine on Satan and He will have to disappear for he cannot remain in Your presence. Your word tells us in 1 John 3:8-For THIS PURPOSE the Son of God was manifested, THAT HE MIGHT DESTROY THE WORKS OF THE DEVIL.
Oh Father cause Your Son to OUTSHINE him in every way, to expose his lies and his tricks and to DESTROY HIS WORKS. Your word tells us in Pro. 4:18- that the path of the just is like the SHINING SUN, THAT SHINES EVER BRIGHTER UNTO THE PERFECT DAY. Your word goes on to say in verse (20) My son, give attention to my words; incline your ear to MY SAYINGS. (21) For they are LIFE to those WHO FIND THEM, and HEALTH TO ALL THEIR FLESH. Father, we rejoice in Your word as one's who find GREAT TREASURE.
This word here in Job Father, is GREAT TREASURE indeed. Job 37:14-Listen to this, O Job; Stand still and consider THE WONDROUS WORKS OF GOD. (15) Do you know when God dispatches them, and CAUSES THE LIGHT OF HIS CLOUD TO SHINE? Do you know THE BALANCE of CLOUDS, THOSE WONDROUS WORKS OF HIM WHO IS PERFECT IN KNOWLEDGE? We take this word Father and join it to this word in the book of Revelation. Rev. 10:1- And I saw another mighty angel coming down from heaven, CLOTHED WITH A CLOUD, and A RAINBOW WAS ON HIS HEAD, HIS FACE WAS LIKE THE SUN, and HIS FEET LIKE PILLARS OF FIRE. We now connect this with Ezekiel 1:28-LIKE THE APPEARANCE OF A RAINBOW IN A CLOUD ON A RAINY DAY, SO WAS THE APPEARANCE OF THE BRIGHTNESS ALL AROUND IT. THIS WAS THE APPEARANCE OF THE LIKENSS OF THE GLORY OF THE LORD. Then Father, we keep connecting until we get just THE RIGHT CONNECTION for YOUR GLORY and for YOUR POWER to get turned ON. So now we connect to this: Deut. 32:2-LET MY TEACHING DROP AS THE RAIN, My speech distill as the dew, AS RAINDROPS on the tender herb, and as SHOWERS ON THE GRASS. (3) For I PROCLAIM THE NAME OF THE LORD: ASCRIBE GREATNESS TO OUR GOD. (4) He IS THE ROCK, HIS WORK IS PERFECT. Now Father, we want to make a few more connections in the word!
Isaiah 45:8-RAIN DOWN, you heavens, from above, and LET THE SKIES POUR DOWN RIGHTEOUSNESS; LET THE EARTH OPEN, LET THEM BRING FORTH SALVATION, and LET RIGHTEOUSNESS SPRING UP TOGETHER. I, the Lord, have created it. Father, THAT IS WHAT WE ARE WAITING FOR, for Your word tells us in Heb. 9:27-To THOSE who EAGERLY WAIT FOR HIM HE WILL APPEAR A SECOND TIME, APART FROM SIN, FOR SALVATION. Your word tells us in 2 Peter 3:9-The Lord is NOT slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is LONGSUFFERING toward us, NOT WILLING THAT ANY SHOULD PERISH, but THAT ALL should COME TO REPENTANCE. Well Father, we are in agreement with YOUR WILL that NONE should perish but THAT ALL should COME TO REPENTANCE. So please begin to pour out Your Spirit upon ALL flesh, for NONE can RESIST YOU! Your word tells us in Ps. 2:7-I will declare the decree: The Lord has said to Me, You are My Son, today I have begotten You. (8) Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations for Your inheritance, and THE ENDS OF THE EARTH FOR YOUR POSSESSION. THIS IS YOUR SONS INHERITANCE FATHER, handed down from YOU! We do not want to see Him robbed of this, so we ask this in Your name for Your glory.
Oh Father, may we be caught up IN THESE CLOUDS, THOSE WONDROUS WORKS OF YOURS? For Your word says in Ps. 107:20-He sent HIS WORD and HEALED THEM and DELIVERED THEM FROM THIER DESTRUCTIONS. (21) Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for HIS GOODNESS, and FOR HIS WONDERFUL WORKS TO THE CHILDREN OF MEN. Your word tells us in 2 Tim.3:16-ALL SCRIPTURE is given by inspiration of GOD, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, (17) THAT THE MAN OF GOD MAY BE COMPLETE, THOROUGHLY EQUIPPED FOR EVERY GOOD WORK. Now Father for the last connection! We take all of these lines and connect them to THE POWER POLE, THE CROSS.
Col. 2:14-having wiped out the handwrititing of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And HE HAS TAKEN IT OUT OF THE WAY, HAVING NAILED IT TO THE CROSS. (15) HAVING DISARMED PRINCIPALITES AND POWERS, HE MADE A PUBLIC SPECTACLE OF THEM, TRIUMPHING OVER THEM IN IT.
We are therefore fulfilling this word in Eph. 3:9-and to make all people see what is the fellowship of THE MYSTERY, which from the beginning WAS HIDDEN in GOD who created ALL THINGS THROUGH JESUS CHRIST; (10) to the intent that now THE MANIFOLD WISDOM OF GOD might be MADE KNOWN BY THE CHURCH TO THE PRINCIPALITIES and POWERS in THE HEAVENLY PLACES.
For Eph. 6:12- (tells us) For WE DO NOT WRESTLE AGAINST FLESH and blood, but against PRINCIPALITIES, against POWERS, against THE RULERS OF THE DARKNESS of THIS AGE, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.
O Holy Father, please send YOUR WORD and HEAL US, and DELIVER US FROM OUR DESTRUCTIONS. Please cause THE LIGHT OF YOUR CLOUD TO SHINE, and make Him BRIGHT ENOUGH TO LIGHT UP THE WHOLE ENTIRE WORLD. We find in Ps.19:1-the heavens declare the GLORY of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork. (2) Day unto day utters speech, and night unto night REVEALS KNOWLEDGE, (3) there is no speech nor language where their voice is not heard. (4) THEIR LINE HAS GONE OUT through all the earth, and THEIR WORDS TO THE END OF THE WORLD. IN THEM He has set A TABERNACLE FOR THE SUN, (5) WHICH IS LIKE A BRIDEGROOM COMING OUT OF HIS CHAMBER, and LIKE A STRONG MAN to RUN ITS RACE. (6) Its rising is from ONE END of HEAVEN and ITS CIRCUIT to THE OTHER END;
O Holy Father please THROW THE SWITCH and get THIS CIRCUIT flowing with YOUR POWER from ONE END of HEAVEN to THE OTHER making THE CONNECTION THAT IS NEEDED, TO COMPLETE THE CIRCUIT, and to connect to this! Ps. 16:5-You, O Lord, are the portion of MY INHERITANCE and my cup; You maintain my lot. (6) THE LINES have fallen to me in pleasant places; YES, I HAVE A GOOD INHERITANCE.
Ps. 2:6-Yet I have set My King on My holy hill of ZION. (7) I will declare the decree: The Lord has said to Me, You are My Son, today I have begotten You. (8) Ask of Me, and I will GIVE YOU, the nations FOR YOUR INHERITANCE, and THE ENDS OF THE EARTH FOR YOUR POSSESSION. Then connect this to Is. 62:11-INDEED THE LORD HAS PROCLAIMED TO THE END OF THE WORLD: “Say to THE DAUGHTER of ZION, “SURELY YOUR SALVATION is COMING; Behold His reward is with Him, and HIS WORK BEFORE HIM, (12) And they shall call them THE HOLY PEOPLE, THE REDEEMED of THE LORD; And you shall be called Sought Out, A CITY NOT FORSAKEN.
This in turn brings this word into focus, Rom.10:15-How beautiful are the feet of THOSE who PREACH THE GOSPEL OF PEACE, WHO BRING GLAD TIDINGS of GOOD THINGS! (17) So then FAITH comes by HEARING, and HEARING by THE WORD OF GOD. (18) But I say, have they not heard: YES INDEED: THEIR SOUND HAS GONE OUT TO ALL THE EARTH, and THEIR WORDS TO THE ENDS OF THE WORLD. So please Holy Father direct us into those GOOD THINGS to COME, which Christ came as HIGH PRIEST to bring, found in your word in Heb. 9:11. For Your word also tells us in Heb. 8:4-FOR IF HE WERE ON EARTH, HE WOULD NOT BE A PRIEST. Now for more light let’s connect that to Heb. 5:5-So also Christ did NOT glorify Himself to BECOME HIGH PRIEST, but it was HE WHO SAID TO HIM: “YOU ARE MY SON, today I HAVE BEGOTTEN YOU.
Acts 13:32-And we DECLARE to you GLAD TIDINGS—that PROMISE which was made to THE FATHERS, (33) God has fulfilled this for US their children, IN THAT HE HAS RAISED UP JESUS. As it is ALSO written in the second Psalm: “You are My Son, today I HAVE BEGOTTEN YOU. (The second Ps goes on to read, “You are My Son, today I HAVE BEGOTTEN YOU. Ask of Me and I WILL GIVE You the nations for YOUR INHERITANCE and THE ENDS OF THE EARTH for YOUR POSSESSION. This tells me Father that He has RISEN to THE TOP and IS SITTING ON HIS THRONE at YOUR RIGHT HAND. Looking closely at Your word, I also see THIS!
1 Sam. 2:10-The adversaries of the Lord SHALL be broken in pieces; FROM HEAVEN HE WILL THUNDER AGAINST THEM. THE LORD WILL JUDGE THE ENDS OF THE EARTH.
Is. 45:22-"LOOK TO ME, and BE SAVED, ALL YOU ENDS OF THE EARTH! For I am God, and THERE IS NO OTHER. Ps. 22:27-ALL THE ENDS OF THE WORLD SHALL REMEMBER AND TURN TO THE LORD, and ALL THE FAMILIES OF THE NATIONS SHALL WORSHIP BEFORE YOU, (28) FOR THE KINGDOM IS THE LORD'S and HE RULES OVER THE NATIONS.
Now Holy Father, we ask that You will put Your seal upon YOUR WORD and give YOUR WORD the AUTHORITY and POWER NEEDED to SAVE THE WORLD. For Jesus tells us in John 5:27-DO NOT LABOR for THE FOOD which perishes, but for THE FOOD which ENDURES to everlasting life, WHICH THE SON OF MAN WILL GIVE YOU, because GOD THE FATHER HAS SET HIS SEAL ON HIM. He also tells us in John 6:32-but My Father gives you THE TRUE BREAD from HEAVEN. (33) For THE BREAD OF GOD is HE WHO COMES DOWN FROM HEAVEN and GIVES LIFE TO THE WORLD. (The Holy Spirit!) Father we read in 2 Corin. 3:7-But if the ministry of death, written and engraved on stones, was glorious, (8) HOW WILL THE MINISTRY OF THE SPIIRIT NOT BE MORE GLORIOUS? Looking back at verse 6 we read, who also made us sufficient as ministers of THE NEW COVENANT, NOT OF THE LETTER but OF THE SPIRIT; FOR THE LETTER KILLS, BUT THE SPIRIT GIVES LIFE.
Jesus has told us that He would send Him to us, He makes this clear in John 16:7-Nevertheless I TELL YOU THE TRUTH. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, THE HELPER will not come to you; but if I depart, I WILL SEND HIM TO YOU. (8) and WHEN HE HAS COME, HE WILL CONVICT THE WORLD OF SIN, and OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, and OF JUDGMENT:
For Jesus says in Matt. 28:18-ALL AUTHORITY has BEEN GIVEN Me in heaven and on earth. (19) GO therefore and make DISCIPLES of ALL THE NATIONS, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, (20) teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS, EVEN UNTO THE END OF THE WORLD. (KJV) He also says something that needs close looking at in John 17:15-I DO NOT PRAY THAT YOU SHOULD TAKE THEM OUT OF THE WORLD, but THAT YOU SHOULD KEEP THEM FROM THE EVIL ONE.
Father we ask that now You will put Your word BACK IN COMMISSION, and BACK IN PROPER WORKING ORDER! For Your word tells us in John 16:8-BY THIS My Father is GLORIFIED, that you BEAR MUCH FRUIT; SO YOU WILL BE MY DISCIPLES.
Your word tells us in Psalm 115:16-The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord's: BUT THE EARTH HE HAS GIVEN TO THE CHILDREN OF MEN. Father this world is Your creation, You poured out Your heart and soul into it. Your Son even poured out of HIS LIFE BLOOD for it’s salvation. This world is PRECIOUS, and You did NOT create it in vain. I will close this prayer Father with Your very own words!
Isaiah 45:18-For thus says the Lord, who created the heavens, who is God, WHO FORMED THE EARTH and MADE IT, who HAS ESTABLISHED IT, WHO DID NOT CREATE IT IN VAIN, who FORMED IT to BE INHABITED: I am the Lord, and there is NO OTHER. (19) I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth: I did not say to the seed of Jacob, “Seek Me in vain,” I the Lord speak righteousness, I DECLARE THINGS THAT ARE RIGHT. (21) Who has DECLARED this FROM ANCIENT TIMES? Who has told it from that time? Have not I, the Lord? And there is NO OTHER GOD besides Me, a just God and a Savior; There is NONE besides Me. (22) “LOOK TO ME, and BE SAVED, ALL YOU ENDS OF THE EARTH! For I am God, and there IS NO OTHER. 1 Sam. 2:10-the adversaries of the Lord Shall be broken in pieces; FROM HEAVEN He will thunder against them. THE LORD WILL JUDGE THE ENDS OF THE EARTH. He will give strength to His king, and exalt the horn of HIS ANOINTED.
Well Father, in verse 21 of this Chapter you say, “TELL and BRING FORTH YOUR CASE. And that is exactly what I have done is brought forth my case as You, Yourself have taught me. Now, I just rest the world and its outcome on YOUR HOLY WORD and ASK that You will indeed, give Him the nations for HIS INHERITANCE and THE ENDS OF THE EARTH for HIS POSSESSION.
We ask this in Your precious and Holy name for Your glory. AMEN and AMEN!!!!

Oh Sis Sharon,Thank you for sharing your heart so beautifully through this moving Inspiring piece,full of God's Holy Written revealed Word and Powerful intercessory prayer for those who have not understood the Awesome Love and Mercy of our Blessed Lord! May we continue to plant seeds and water them and lift precious souls before the Throne of Grace in prayer and watch God cause the Increase!!! "Your Love for God is a Beautiful Testimony to all who know you!!!" "You have a most beautiful redeemed heart full of God's Love for the Body of Christ and for the lost" With Much Love, Sis,Dee "Numbers 6:24,25,26"
AMEN! Sharon, this prayer is a wonderful example of the love in your heart for the Lord AND His creation. How your heart mirrors His! Upon reading this prayer (which must have truly touched God's heart!) a couple of scriptures came up to me that I think might give a little confirmation. I hope you don't mind: Revelation 3:12 Him who overcomes I will make a pillar in the temple of my God. Never again will he leave it. I will write on him the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of heaven from my God; and I will also write on him my new name. Isaiah 62:1 [ Zion's New Name ] For Zion's sake I will not keep silent, for Jerusalem's sake I will not remain quiet, till her righteousness shines out like the dawn, her salvation like a blazing torch. I don't want to put a page long response here, so please take all that love Gloria left here for you and know that I feel exactly the same way! What would we do without our big Sis?
It's my prayer that many readers will take some time to read this annointed prayer, reflect on the authentic Word of God, see the Light for those who are walking in darkness, and have a change of mind and heart through repentance. We can easily get caught up in religion that we tend to forget about relationship. I am so blessed to get to know you Sis. Sharon,through Faith Writers, and eversince, you've been one of my inspirations in my walk with our Lord. It's a great blessing and honor for me to have you as one of my wonderful mentor, friend and sister in Christ. You are walking the talk. Love, Gloria
Sharon- I praise the Lord for His Holy Word, and the Light of the World, the Lord Jesus Himself, Whom you have set before us with this prayer. May the Lord now take this and sanctify it, bless it, and answer it in His Holy Power and Might. We know that it is a prayer after His own will, and therefore, we can look for His answer from on High with surety. Thank you for leading in this powerful prayer, for our world and those who live in darkness. Blessings upon you as you continue to speak and pray His Word with boldness. Dennis Carey
Hi Sharon! Thank you for your anointed writing. ALL SCRIPTURE IS GOD BREATHED (2 Timothy 3:16). The Greek says Theo pneustos. Theo means God. Hence, theology is the study of God. Pneustos comes from pneuma which means breath. Pneumatic shocks are gas filled for cars. I love your use of the Living Word. I know you have allowed the Holy Spirit to use His Anointed Word to renew your mind and transform you continually into the very image of Christ in ever increasing splendor (2 Corinthians 3:16). Many people memorize and use Scripture in speaking and writing and never experience having their minds renewed and transformed. They remain stuck in religion. You have faith that works through the love of God (Galatians 5:6). God will answer our prayers as we pray with the Holy Spirit and The Living Word of God! God Bless You, Dan
Dearest Sharon, You have, indeed, shared God's love WITH JOY in this incredible prayer! Your words uplift, inspire and shed the Light of our world - our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ - on all who read this! With your prayer, those who walk in darkness will see a path before them illuminated with God's shining LIGHT and LOVE. God bless you, for you will encourage so many with this offering! Love, always, Your Sister Peggy
We must be a living prayer to those in darkness. We must be a living light to those who can't see. We must be a son to the People without one and a Father to those children without one. Jesus said those that do His works and obey The Father are His mother, brother, sister etc. You have written a Great thing. All of Fw needs to grasp this. We need to spread the Gospel of Jesus through our actions. God protect you and bless you forever Amen.
