You alone are worthy. You alone are the creator and maker of all Heaven and earth. Your name is above all and in all. Your plans are good; they bring prosperity, blessings and abundance to your people that all will praise your name and all will know that you are God and you are good!
You have given me (us) so much and I am thankful for those things where I can see your hand at work in my life. I live in a beautiful part of the world and for so many years you have provided even when I was trying to do things on my own. Lord God, I know that for too long I have tried to control the circumstances of my life. Particularly as it relates to money. Somewhere along the way I have believed that I needed to work had and manage what I earned. I somewhere along the way believed that if I could learn the secrets to wealth that all my dreams would come true. Yet, I didn’t even know what my dreams really were; they became clouded by the images and ideas of people around me and what I saw and thought I ‘should’ have in order to be accepted and loved. I believed ‘if only I could be, do, have more’ then I would be happy; then I would truly live.
The result of course has been death. Death of dreams, loss of loved ones, loss of peace, joy and love; loss of money and precious time. Your word says that you will restore that which has been stolen, even when I was the one who let the enemy in to steal the treasure; treasures beyond money. Lord God, I am so sorry. My words see hollow for the enormity of the losses that have resulted in my own pride and attempts to be self-sufficient’.
You have good plans for my life as you do for everyone’s life, and I willingly chose to partner with the devil who has been trying to rob, steal and destroy those good plans for me and all your people. For as long as I can remember a nice home filled with family and friends and joyful, peaceful activities has been a desire of my heart. Your word says that you will provide these things for your people – You will provide them, not my hard work or craftiness; not the bank or my ability to access and maneuver through the maze of credit. It is you who provides each of us the ability to produce wealth including a nice home.
As we struggled to control the financial reality after the devil tried to steal my dream of impacting nations with a message of financial abundance according to your plans and purposes, your hand led us to sell our home and live in temporary accommodations. These are lovely, but they aren’t home. Lord God, I (we) believe you have led us here by your mighty hand and you will deliver us to our promised land here on earth as it will be in heaven as well. Right now I don’t see how…so I give you this dream and these desires to bring forward in a way that is peaceful, joyful and honours your name.
I / we thank you for your continued and increasing income for our daily bread and I thank you that you have unlocked the resources in our heavenly bank accounts for the purchase of the home which you are leading us to now. I thank you for the release and forgiveness of all debts; financial and relational; that nothing will hinder the completion of the purchase of the promised land you have pre-selected and prepared for us to reside and carry on the good work you have prepared for us to do.
Lord God, in the name of Jesus, I declare and decree that there is more than enough to purchase, develop and maintain the home you have for us to live in today. I claim 1 Chronicles 28:20 as you revealed to our realtor in her devotions, over our life, over this purchase and over every area of this transaction, over every square foot of this land, and over the vision for the ministry work to take place from this land. We claim blessing and honour to all who walk there today and who will walk there in the future. We thank you that your blood has cleansed and purified this land and that your ministering angels are preparing all the details for us to take possession.
In the mighty name of Jesus, we stand against any attack of the enemy; all firey darts and any negative thoughts that attempt to sabotage your good plans. We ask Holy Spirit that you fill us to overflowing with your goodness, strength and wisdom; and that it is you who brings forward all the resources needed for an efficient, profitable transaction and move. We give you all these details to care for while we willingly carry out the tasks you set before us as your Servants.
Thank you, Lord. In your mighty name, Jesus I / we pray,
“Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you until all the work for the service of the temple of the Lord is finished” (1 Chronicles 28:20).
