Hey SUM family, Tiffany here!
When I write I try to share my life experiences with you. I want you to know that you are not alone. I aim to help you see that if God can do it for me - He certainly can do it for you!
Today I feel a different route is in order. I am seeing so much going on in our community that I really felt it is the time to pray and intercede for you. For us.
We come before You in awe and wonder. We humble ourselves before Your throne. Our grief, our hardships, our lack, our tears are like diamonds before you. Precious jewels rising up like incense to Your throne. We hold a special place in Your heart as we talk with one foot in Heaven and one foot in the world. It is so good to know that we are not mistakes. We are not forgotten. We are seen. We are heard. We are known.
Thank You for Your grace, mercy, love and blessing over our marriages. Thank You for giving us strength beyond what we can ask or imagine. Even the devil trembles in fear at the inheritance and influence we have in our Spiritually Unequal Marriage. The battle and war is tough. We have been bruised. We have been beaten. We have been taken advantage of. We have often been misunderstood.
BUT God! Our Valiant Warrior. You come in to save the day. You come in with fresh healing; fresh anointing; fresh perspective; fresh wisdom. You lift us up to be seated in the Heavens with You. Our Rock. Our Salvation. Our victory. Our song.
Help us to remember that we are chosen for a very specific assignment. We have been crafted with patience, endurance, wisdom, intuition. You have instilled in us from before time began a fighting spirit. You have equipped us with supernatural weapons to break down strongholds. With our words - prayer, encouragement, petitions and Kingdom-led decrees over our spouses - we are chipping away at the walls that have been put up over the years. With our actions we are serving, training, equipping and sending out the next generation to pull down Heaven to earth.
Your Kingdom come, Your will be done - on earth as it is in Heaven. This is our battle cry. This is our heart's desire. We seek deliverance, healing, signs, miracles and wonders. We beat on the door of the Throne Room and claim what is rightfully ours. We come before you day and night on behalf of our loved ones. We are the workers in the field ripe for harvest that our spouses, children, family, friends, co-workers, neighbors and government officials need.
We are the leaders of "the pack." We run with endurance and spur others on who are new to the journey. Those who have not had to walk this path will come to us as a model for loving and walking along side their loved ones who are lost or misdirected.
May we see the honor, the privilege, the glory that we have! In our hardship and trial we are strengthened for the fight. Walking with our SUM family may we not turn to gossip, slander, complaining or grumbling as our comfort zone. May we cast aside all unforgiveness, records of wrong doings and contempt. Help us chose to walk in humility and love - regardless of our spouses actions. Though it seems like we may be unseen, forgotten, abandoned or misconstrued - we cling to the Truth of who we are. We remember Your words, decrees and promises over us individually - Rhema words whispered personally to us and our specific situations. Your written Word the precious Bible - alive and breathing as we wait upon your precious Holy Spirit and seek You.
In our weakness, remind us that You are our strength. Not by might, nor by power but by Your Spirit. We come into one accord. Thank You Daddy for lifting us up, dusting us off, healing our wounds and sending us out again.
Right now Jesus - we apply Your blood over ourselves and family members from the top of our heads to the bottom of our feet. We apply a supernatural camouflage over our families, homes, vehicles, pets and property. We are concealed and hidden in You. The enemy cannot find us. The enemy cannot seek us out. The enemy cannot record us and take things back to the devil's camp. The enemy has no power, right, authority over us or any of our comings and goings - this includes our family, property, jobs, health, finances, relationships, minds, thoughts, will or emotions. We are completely surrounded by angels on assignment over our lives. The president's security detail looks non-existent compared to ours. We are highly fortified now and forever.
Holy Spirit fill the atmosphere so full of You that we cannot help but breathe You in. We cannot help but become infused with who You are. Our thoughts, will, emotions, actions, attitiudes, beliefs, behaviors, worldviews, preconceived notions, and perspectives cannot help but line up with the Kingdom of God. As we breathe You in we are breathing in love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. You have instilled in us Your fruit. We embody who You are. We are one.
Give us our daily bread. Just enough for another step; another moment; another day; another season. Change our hearts and minds toward our spouses. Help us to not only love them but like and enjoy them. Help us to see them the way You see them. May we cherish the moments we have with them. Help us to raise our children the way they should go so that when they are older they will not depart from it. Give us the words to say, life lessons to share. Give us divine inspiration to be creative at home where our spouse prohibits Your Kingdom work. Empower us to keep moving - regardless if we must do it alone. Like Aaron and Hur - Jesus, Holy Spirit raise up our arms to victory.
In Your victorious, mighty, conquering name, Jesus - King of Kings and Lord of Lords, Amen.
If you need specific prayer requests, please comment or email. We would love to pray with and over you!
I was shown this video in my early college years. Even to this day - every time I see this, I am so strengthened. It stirs up a fire in me to keep marching.
Be blessed, mighty warriors!
