Are you going through a difficult time? Many of us have been experiencing storms in our lives, but God is absolutely faithful.
He inspired King David to write songs that are an example of how to cry out for God’s mercy and proclaim His goodness!
In this episode of Spirit Connection, I share more about the difficult times we’ve been going through with our ministry and personally … and how you can help us.
- Why The LORD wants us to sing joyfully to Him.
- Things you can do to help you through difficult times.
- That The LORD wants us to ask Him for mercy.
- How to pray to clear things from our lives that could block blessings.
Using Psalm 33 to pray
“Sing joyfully to The LORD, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise him.” Psalm 33:1 NIV
I’ve been using Psalm 33 and other Bible verses to pray and proclaim The LORD’s great love and power over us. An important aspect of this is to sing and praise The LORD no matter how things look.
“Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy.” Psalm 33:3 NIV
If you’re going through difficult times, you can sing and worship The LORD. Sing a new song to The LORD!
“For he spoke, and it came to be; he commanded, and it stood firm.” Psalm 33:9 NIV
The LORD is calling us to use Bible verses and worship to help us through difficult times.
Ask The LORD for mercy
“Have mercy on me, Lord, for I call to you all day long. Bring joy to your servant, Lord, for I put my trust in you. You, Lord, are forgiving and good, abounding in love to all who call to you.” Psalm 86:3–5 NIV
As I have mentioned, many of us have been walking through difficult times. We can call out to The LORD for mercy, forgiveness, protection and safety.
More about our difficult times
I am asking you to consider praying for Linda and I, our families, friends and our ministry.
Linda and I recently lost two very close family members in the last few weeks. My sister and her husband went to Heaven. They both were very strong examples of Faith.
They both persevered, never gave up and gave The LORD praise all the way to the end. We know that they are now in a much better place with The LORD in Heaven.
Linda and I have been in a time of transition with our ministry.
I was able to use the entire month of April for prayer and received counsel. I know this prepared us to go through what we are going through now.
We have an urgent need for prayer and financial help with our ministry, InLight Connection. We need a substantial financial boost for our ministry right away.
We are asking for people to pray for us as we are going through this time.
Also, please pray and ask The LORD about giving to our ministry. You can donate HERE to help us through this time.
Thank you so much, LORD, for Your loving-kindness through good times and difficulties.
We ask You for mercy, safety, protection and greater power.
We declare, “peace be still.” In the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord.
Repentance prayer to break through:
I’m going to walk you through a process that I use.
I find Bible verses, pray in the promises, agree with others and do deep repentance of anything I might have “in common” that would stop The LORD from moving and blessing us.
It is important to add worship, fun and joy to this!
Think about it, pray about it and let’s agree together for your needs.
What do you specifically need?
Here’s how you can remove any strongholds, jam-ups, gridlocks and delays:
Repent, renounce, and break anything we have “in common” … including generational—soul ties, curses and things we may have done knowingly or unknowingly.
We also come into agreement in prayer to break out of things that are holding us back.
We forgive and break off the spirit of unforgiveness. (We don’t have to agree with the person or people who want us to forgive them.)
LORD, I ask forgiveness if I have done anything that has hurt anyone … If I’ve come into agreement with anything, knowingly or unknowingly, against this message.
Or that would stop You from breaking us out of the old season and into the new.
Also, I ask forgiveness for any misuse of anything that You’ve given me, known or unknown.
LORD, we ask You to flush out the things that are unseen and send them to where the true Jesus sends them.
In the name of the true LORD Jesus. Amen.
