Father, this world is so twisted, wicked and confused; good became evil, evil became good, what a mess, what a mess. This never changing world, "What has been is what will be (again), and what has been done is what will be done (again), and there is nothing new under the sun." [Ecc1:9] What can we do in this never changing world?
We lift our eyes to You, King Jesus.
Lies have such a power in this world, Lord; the sin started with the lie. Lies hurt, lies kill & destroy, lies harm, lies keep us away from good, lies rob, lies do not know love, lies just fit perfectly to the old serpent and from him they come and through him this world is being moved... christians are no exception...
Have mercy on us, oh God!
The battle is in our minds. Is there one day without the serpent trying to plant his lies into us? Is there one day without him whispering his ugly words into our minds? They never get tired, they never ever stop; but like Martin Luther said- we cannot prevent the birds flying around our heads but we can prevent them from building a nest. And that's only possible through Your word, God, through Your truth and grace! The truth sets us free.
Give us Your word, Father!
Jesus, we ask You to destroy all the lies of the enemy, all the lies of this world with Your precious blood! Destroy and declare all the fruits of the lies void with Your powerful blood! And restore everything and everyone with Your blood's cleansing power! Bring back lands, bring back hearts! Loose grounds, shake the grounds, make them good, so that Your seeds can fall on them and prosper, Lord! We desperately ask You, Jesus... we are tired and tired and tired of these lies.... we want to prosper in Your truth, in Your life giving word! We want to listen to Your voice and not to the voices of this world! Deafen us to the voices of this world! We do NOT want to listen, we don't we don't we don't we don't!!! Only open our ears, only open our eyes for the things You do, Father! Because actually anything else are so not important!
Help us to prosper in Your truth, Holy Spirit!
The sweetness of this world only leads to death but Your voice is sweet but does not harm. Your voice is full of love and life. Your words are the kindest, most powerful, most graceful and gracious, "living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart." [Hebr4:12]
We choose to turn our backs on the lies of the enemy and lift our eyes to You, Jesus! You are the way, the truth and the life! [John14:6]
We proclaim Your word into our lives, Lord. Save us, heal us, deliver us, protect us from the lies of this world. Let us not believe in the lies but in Your precious truth and word in Jesus name!
We praise and worship Your holy name and thank You for declaring "It is finished" on the cross [John19:30]! Thank You Jesus, You are all we ever need. In Your precious name we say amen and amen!
