Over the last seven weeks, as directed by The Lord about a week or two before that, I’ve been guiding those of you who have been listening, through an 8-week (Pod)Casting Potential series called Spiritual House Spring Cleaning. This series has been to help you clear and breakdown any blockages, within your own spiritual houses, that could possibly delay or distract you from grasping all the great new things God has planned for you in this season of your life. About five weeks into the series, God showed me the burden on His heart through the Letters to the Seven Churches in Revelations chapters 2 & 3. And, I was reminded of Haggai 1:4, “You people think the right time has come for you to live in nice houses. You live in houses with beautiful wooden paneling on the walls, but the Lord’s house is still in ruins.”
So, since about two weeks ago, I’ve been praying a cleansing prayer, based off of the Letters to the Seven Churches, nightly for all churches around the world. I’m posting this not to toot my own horn, but to ask for more Church leaders, prayer warriors, and intercessors to join with me, to generate greater power via unified prayer to bring forth a shift in what The Lord is seeking to do in this time for His Houses that are to be Houses of Worship & Houses of Prayer.
See the prayer below. I appreciate all of you who pray this prayer along with me for Five nights, from the post date of this post, and any of you who periodically pray it subsequently.
May God Bless you mightily for your obedience and for your heart for the Temples of God and the Body of Christ!
Please pray the prayer straight through as if you’re praying it all for all churches. The subtitles are only there to indicate the Churches that Jesus was talking to as I was writing the prayer.
For those like Ephesus:
Lord Jesus, assist us to do good works and never weary, to have perseverance and endurance for the hardships. Give us strength, Lord to stand against & resist the lures of the wicked. Draw us nearer to You, Lord so that we may love You with all our hearts, minds, & souls as we once first did. Burn away all things not of You with Your (spiritual not natural) Consuming Purifying Fire, sanctifying the atmospheres around us & in us, so that we may be given the right to eat from the tree of life in the paradise of God.
For those like Smyrna:
God, You’ve seen & are seeing the evil we are suffering, please give us power, protection, and faithfulness to overcome, even to the point of death, that we may gain the crown of life & avoid all effects of the 2nd death.
For those like Pergamum:
We desire to remain true to Your name, Lord Jesus, to always maintain & grow in faith in You. Father give us wisdom, knowledge, understanding, & strategy to reject the spirits & teachings of Balaam, Balak, & the Nicolaitans. Make us over, Lord, so we may overcome to receive some of the hidden manna & white stones with new names written on them.
For those like Thyatira:
Regarding the good deeds, love, faith, service, and perseverance we seek Your provision, Lord, to enable us to carry on so that we can go forth in doing more than we did at first. Give us the power, heart’s desire, self-control, to drive out, force out, cast out, & bind the spirit of jezebel & all the teachings that misleads Your servants into sexual immorality and the eating of food sacrificed to idols. Please help us, Oh God, to do all of this so we can be repaid for good deeds and gain authority over the nations & the morning star.
For those like Sardis:
Oh our Savior Jesus Christ, who came to give us abundant life, we cast off the reputation of being alive, but are actually dead! I drive out, force out, cast out & bind the spirit of Ichabod, In Jesus Name! Help us to wake up, Oh Sovereign One, & strengthen what remains & is about to die! May we be able to complete our good deeds in Your sight! We long to never have our names blotted out of the book of life & to have our names acknowledged before You Father God, and Your angels.
For those like Philadelphia:
Lord Jesus, what You open no man can shut, and what You shut, no one can open! Thank You for seeing our deeds, and we ask you to help us to continue, so that we can walk through the open doors that You place before us that no one can shut. Infill us, Holy Spirit, indwell in us that we may have added strength, to remove our weariness. May we keep Your Word forever, and never deny Your Name, Jesus. Cause our enemies to see Your Glory, and as a result, come & fall at our feet to be at peace with us, seeing that You have loved us. As we keep Your commands patiently, keep us from the hour of trial, that we may hold on to all that is of You, Oh Lord, overcome and be made pillars in the temple of God.
For those like Laodicea:
Douse Your Living Water on us, Oh God, wake us up! So, that we are no longer neither hot nor cold. Turn our eyes away from the wealth of the world towards the true riches & glory of Christ Jesus. Help us to never ignore Your knocking at the doors of our hearts but instead to let You in, that we may sup with You, overcome, and gain the right to sit with You, Lord, on Your throne.
For everything, Oh Lord, for anything & everything, that we could have possibly wrongly done, including our hidden faults, please give us a heart’s desire to truly & everlastingly repent. Help us all to humble ourselves & pray, and turn from our wicked ways, so that all that is in the Houses of God & in and around the Body of Christ is healed, body, spirit, & soul.
In Jesus Name. Amen.
Love you with the Love of God!
