Strategic Prayer Guide: From The Secret Place!
Scripture Readings: Mathew 6:13 & 33, 16:18, 22:44, 28:18; Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness then the other things will be yours as well; Galatians 3, 6; Genesis 1, Luke 9 & 10; Romans 3:23, 8:34, 11:25, 13, 15; James 1:25; and Hebrews 12:2. Keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished this race we’re in. Songs of Praise: ‘He Wants It All,’ by Forever Jones. Love me, love me with your whole heart, He wants it all today; serve me, serve me with your life now, He wants it all today. Bow down, let go of your idols, He wants it all today. And ‘Faithful Is Our God,’ by Hezekiah Walker; I am reaping the harvest God promise, take back what the devil stole from me. I rejoice today cause I shall recover it all….
The sweet fragrant prayer of a person living right with God is something powerful to be reckoned with. I am righteous because I believe God and His Word has final authority. Abraham was made righteous because he believed God, not because of anything he did. I am a believer of God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit that comes in the flesh of man as Christ, our Lord and Savior of life. We are created in Him. He that diligently seeks Him will be given His power and authority on Earth. The authority given me defines my boundaries. The Kingdom of God is unlimited, infinite throughout the World, above and below. Full maturity = The mind that is in Christ be in me also. My faith in God + Renewing my mind to His way of thinking + Allowing His Holy Spirit and His desires that are in my heart to guide me into His plan and purpose for me. He makes me a living sacrifice and holy for God’s good works.
We have a free will based on the nature of God and is limited by our own fleshly desires. Our life is first lived in a natural body that cannot inherit the Kingdom of God. Then the spiritual body comes, a new birth, Christ is a life-giving seed. Go, eat and drink for there is a sound of abundance of rain. Send the message to your future that you are coming. Do not get excited about your next until you finish with now. If your face is set to your next with Jesus as your Lord and Savior, some will reject you because they cannot go into your future. Let them go! Next – notes you have learned everything needed for you to take another step. A promotion into a new dimension and your future is greater than your now.
To be effective in prayer, I must first be willing to open myself up to the Holy Spirit. The anointing is being poured into me through The Son Jesus. As I abide in His Word, presence, and worship Him, He gives me the intellectual power to pray His Will on Earth as it is in Heaven. When my praises go up, His empowerment comes down on Earth. The how He will do something is not for me to say. But, as I praise and worship His Holy Name, I receive by faith His wisdom, understanding, and knowledge of every weapon He gives me. I put on the whole armor of God so that I will be able to stand up against the wiles of the Devil. It is not my power that discerns, creates, change, and rearranges the situation. The changes come through the presence and power of God’s Holy Spirit, Jesus The Christ. And victory comes because of His love and divine purpose within me. God is abundantly more than you can think or ask because of the power that works within you. The intellectual power of faith, hope, and love, the greatest is Christ’s command: to love the Lord with all your heart and love your neighbor as yourself.

This is far more than you can handle on your own, therefore take all the help you can get, every weapon God has issued, the spiritual, physical, and the practical: Faith, Truth, Righteousness, Peace, Salvation, Word of God, and your Prayer, Praise and Worship of His Holy Name. He is omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresence. (His all powerful and all knowing presence.) Praise Him for all He has done and will do for us by His Saving Grace. As a soldier in the army of the Lord, God outfits me for the battles ahead, I stand firm in peace, and He gives me a new offensive weapon, The insight of wisdom into His strategic plan for victory.
Spiritual Weapons of Mass Destruction: The Full Armor of God, Ephesians 6; These are the tools God has given us for victory in Overcoming Satan’s Attacks!
The Belt of Truth buckled around your waste to hold all things together. Truth is standards and facts on which your core character builds from. We put on truth for sanctification and deliverance. Satan’s greatest weapon is deception; a lying tongue and abomination are wiles of the Devil, and typically used to extract money from people.
A Shield of Faith: The shield in which you can extinguish all the flaming errors of the evil. Shields you from Satan doubts about the faithfulness of God and His Word. Have faith in the one and only God, Our Father. Our faith in God is like a solid golden shield for withering the enemy’s fiery darts, and comes with Kingdom’s authority, wisdom, understanding, and power. The Holy Spirit operates in our life by faith, and we are transformed into the image of His dear Son. The strength of my faith is tested by the optical I endure and survive. Faith is the ability to effect changes in self, others, and the World.
The Breastplate of Righteousness: The is a shield covering a worrier’s heart and other major organs from blows that would otherwise be fatal. This is the righteousness of Christ, received by faith and not by anything we do. The breastplate guards our hearts from false accusations and secure our inner man in peace. When we operate under the King’s authority by faith in Christ Jesus, we are in right standing with the governing authority to receive from God His wisdom, protection, and power to do His Will.
The Gospel of Peace: Your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the good news of the gospel. He will keep your heart in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Him. In warfare, the enemy places obstacles in the path of advancing soldiers. The gospel of peace as footwear indicates the warrior is entering enemy’s territory aware of traps set. By continually feeding your faith with the gospel of peace, you will not fear, and you will allow the Holy Spirit to change your course when needed.
Helmet of Salvation: The helmet preserves our way of thinking once our mind has a sure hope in the gospel of eternality. A covering over your mind to protect you from thoughts that control your emotions and actions. Salvation is more than being saved by Grace. It is also peace, joy, and prosperity; for your spirit, body, and soul (mind, will and emotions). The unsaved mind has no hope of warding off the blows of false doctrine because he is incapable of discerning between spiritual truths and deception.
The Sword of the Spirit – The Word of God: The sword is the only offensive weapon and speaks to the holiness and power of the Word. It is a two-edge sword and has an overpowering response to Satan. As a Kingdom minded believer, I believe God has the first word and last word in initiating my response to Satan. I play a small part based on the authority given me and my understanding of His spiritual weapons. I must learn to use the sword against the World’s evil.
My Prayers, Praises and Adulation: God uses the physical things you can see and understand to teach you the spiritual things you cannot see or understand. These are not just words. Each of these has the destructive spiritual power to effect changes in you and around the World. The greater your understanding of these spiritual weapons of massive power to destroy the works of Satan; the more powerful your love for one another grows as if your lives depended on it, and it does. When your praises go up to God, look for and expect the breakthrough of His spiritual download into your situation. Having a heart for God and His people, by asking, seeking, and knocking on the door of salvation, by praying the Word of God continuiously; I invites the Holy Spirit into the situation because of my faith and honor of His Holy Power’s ability to do the impossible.
Drawing Nearer to God in Prayer, Philippians 4:6-9. “Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. Its wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.” Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious – the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse.”
The Right Hand of God will guide you in your daily prayers, representing His Five-Fold Ministry Gifts: and, His direction and guidance for what is right, just, pure in a place of honor and authority. Look unto Him who is the radiant light to your purpose, and He is the author and finisher of your faith. I pray that the Lord stretch forth His Mighty Hand across nations to heal, deliver, and set captives free by the Blood of Jesus. The inner surface of His hand from the wrist to the base of the fingers is the heart of it all, love and self-control is what hold everything together; love the Lord with all your heart and soul and others as yourself. I use this as my primary guide in reflecting on the needs of His People:
The thumb is for The Apostles: The Apostle is a Christian Teacher and Missionary commissioned and sent by Christ to preach His Gospel. He makes known the wisdom and mysterious of God for purification. Therefore, a continuous relationship with God is of vital importance for growing and learning the Will of God. The original twelve disciples chosen by Christ to pray for the needs of The Body of Christ’s concerns, plans, hopes, and fears; and for those closes to you. Those within your daily inner cycle. They are your family, friends, confidants, and divine connections encountered in your daily walk as a disciple of Christ. When praying and spreading the joy, peace, and love of God, all are included regardless of who they are.
The Pointer Finger is for The Prophet: The prophet also has roles of the Priest and King; and is one with more vision to rightly interpret and discern the Will of God, Amos 3:7. He speaks by divine inspiration representing God to the people; and in His priest role He represents the people to God, 2 Pete 1:21. As king, he takes responsibility for the welfare of his people and strengthen social connections among leaders in society: inclusive of husbands, mentors, bishops, CEOs, COOs, Presidents, and all those who have decision-making authority. The Prophet advise and declare G0d’s Word directly to Nations; pulling down strongholds that destroy the work of Satan, and plants holy seeds to rebuild the kingdom. He prays for peace in the land and for leaders to govern with a heart of love; and seek daily to receive wisdom from the Holy Spirit to exercise just and right counsel.
Middle finger is for The Evangelist: The Evangelist stands the tallest and reaches the masses in far-flung islands. An evangelist is devoted to the ministry of teaching and preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ, a messenger of good news. He is unlike the pastor who has a flock but the evangelist may help form new churches and disciple new believers in places where no churches have been established yet. I appeal as a fellow elder and a witness of Christ’s suffering and will also share in His Glory, My reach has the anointing, understanding heart and desire for righteousness in World Views. (The gift of evangelist, Ephesians 4:11 & Phillip reference as evangelist, Acts 21:8.) My prayer are of a willingness and eagerness to serve, and my reach is for Nations and World Systems: Medical, Economical, Housing, Educational, Financial, Justice, Legal, Manufacturing, Arts and Entertainment Systems without limits. I flow in the Holy Spirit of life, light, love, liberty and of labors for those who receive Worldwide.
Ring finger is the Pastor: The Pastor or Shepherd of the house has the heart and love for mentoring the sheeps. The Shepherd of the flock rescues those sheep assigned to him of The Church Body. The church is not a building, but the people you are assigned to teach, encourage, and lead into disciples for Kingdom of God’s business. The Pastor prays and often care for the needs of the weak, sick, oppressed, poor, orphans and widowers. He is a symbol of commitment, covenant, and labor for God in the image of Christ. God is King of little kings, and every king has a kingdom he’s responsible for covering and loving the people. God disciples the chosen ones sending them out to evangelize the World.
The Pinky is the teacher: The teacher is small enough to go in and out of every situation without introduction, invitation, permission and without chaos. You are praying, speaking and flowing life to all that receives in your daily walk. It is also where you come in the prayer. God already knows your heart and needs but wants you to take care of His needs first. This leaves Him obligated to take care of you. Give and it shall be given to you in good measures. When you give others the things you have need of, your faith in action shows God an understanding heart of His role and promises in your life. Herein is what biblical actionable intelligence means when you invite God to cultivate peace, love and abundance in your life.
If I speak God’s Word with power, revealing all his mysteries and making everything plain as day, and if I have faith that says to a mountain, “Jump,” and it jumps, but I don’t love, I’m nothing… Love doesn’t strut, doesn’t have a swelled head, doesn’t force itself on others, isn’t always “me first,” doesn’t fly off the handle, doesn’t keep score of the sins of others, doesn’t revel when others gravel, takes pleasures in the flowering of truth, puts up with anything, trusts God always, always looks for the best, Never looks back, but keeps going to the end. Love never dies. 1 Corinthians 13 MSG.
