Hallowed Be Thy Name(7/21)
On Day 1, we launched up our 7 days of prayers with a day of Praise & Worship
It’s no secret in our faith that when praises go up, God comes down in His full glory to take dominion over us and to accomplish His purpose in our lives. We spent an anointed in God’s presence with praise and adoration.
Praise the Lord! Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens! Praise him for his mighty deeds; praise him according to his excellent greatness! Praise him with trumpet sound; praise him with lute and harp! Praise him with tambourine and dance; praise him with strings and pipe! Praise him with sounding cymbals; praise him with loud clashing cymbals!Psalm 150:1-6 (ESV)

Let Your Will Be Done (7/22)
Day 2 was a day of submission to God’s will. We don’t have to understand God’s divine will, we only have to trust that His plans for us are good (Jer 29:11). As we stepped into Day 2 of our 7-Day Prayer Retreat, may God’s perfect will be done in your life in Jesus name we pray, Amen.
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.Jeremiah 29:11

Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread(7/23)
Day 3 was the day to submit our petitions and requests to the Lord. The Bible says in John 14:14 that If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it. We activated our faith to move mountains in prayers believing that God heard and answered our prayers.

Forgive Us, As We Forgive Others(7/24)
On Day 4, We thanked God for his grace , prayed forgiveness and asked for Grace to forgive others of their sins.
Forgiveness can be difficult when we are deeply wronged. However, when we forgive others we free ourselves from depression, anger, and other burdens and move towards healing, peace and a better life. In Matthew 18, Jesus teaches us to forgive seventy-seven times, just as God had has forgiven us.
Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?” Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but <b><u>seventy-seven times:

Please Lead Us Away from Temptation(7/25)
On Day 5 We asked God to Order Our Step with teachings by Rumbidzai and prayer sessions by Belinda Normah.
A Prayer for Day 5. “Father we thank you for this moment and for the gift of life. We are moulded, each one of us, in the image of God, and within our souls there is a fingerprint none can erase. We ask you God to guide our steps and help us to devote our whole life and thought and energy to the task of doing right with you and praying always for the inspiration and the power. O Lord, open our eyes and let us not be afraid to fight evil doings. In Jesus name we say Thank You. Amen.”
We know that anyone born of God does not keep on sinning; the One who was born of God protects him, and the evil one cannot touch him.1 John 5:18
Deliver us from Evil(7/26)
On Day 6, we prayed against COVID-19 and declared in faith protection and healing for ourselves and nations based on Psalm 91.
Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty…. A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.Philippians 4:6

Praise God! For six days we made all our requests known to our Father, by prayer and supplication. On day 7, we rest with thanksgiving and a resounding Amen. To Almighty God Be the Glory!!!
No evil will befall you, Nor will any plague come near your tent. Even when trouble comes, the Lord will deliver you out of the hand of the wicked, and redeem you from all evil.Psalm 91:10
