A Declaration Prayer of Commitment for 2019

During day 7 of our 21 days of prayer and fasting (January 12, 2019), while worshiping to the song entitled, “Christ is Enough” by Hillsong, I felt impressed to write out this prayer of declaration and commitment based on this song:

Christ is Enough.

Yes, Lord, may You be our

exceeding and great reward – Your PRESENCE and Your WORD alone.

May this be the NEW discovery we all seek after in 2019.

May You and You alone – Your presence and Your Word satisfy like never before – like NO THING in this world can or ever will.

Yes, through every trial, You are with us. You carry, You comfort, You guide, You strengthen, You give peace, and You even restore our JOY – Amen!

May 2019 be a year of only moving forward – a turning point.


May our souls sing a NEW song this year!  A song of PRAISE and JOY!

Here is our decree for 2019 —

May we proclaim I’VE BEEN SET FREE!

May we ARISE and SHINE for all to see it is JESUS who is truly ALIVE in me.

You, LORD, are our HEALER, our SAVIOR, our REDEEMER, RESTORER, GOOD FATHER, FRIEND, LOVER OF OUR SOUL, COMFORTER, PROVIDER, PROTECTOR, DEFENDER, COUNSELOR – our PEACE – the Great I AM.  You alone bring great JOY.  Reveal who You are more in 2019.  You are ALL we need. Amen.

You are all we need in every situation, every decision, everything we face.  

RESTORE the JOY of our salvation – being saved – being your covenant son, being your covenant daughter – forever being loved by You, belonging to You.  Bring more of a revelation of Your amazing love and grace – Your goodness.  Let us REJOICE AND BE JOYFUL in this alone above all else.  You are our HOPE.  May our hope arise in Your Word and in Your promises – ALL our HOPE in CHRIST – in Your love that never fails us.  Let the  joy of what awaits us ultimately be awakened and strengthen our hearts, minds and spirits.  May this bring REST and PEACE to our spirits.  Forever in Your presence for all eternity.  

Through every storm, may our souls sing, You are always with us – to God be the glory!  Yes – Amen.  All has and is working together for our good and for Your glory and purpose.  May Your glory be on display, as You, Lord, are writing ALL our restoration stories for YOUR GLORY ALONE.

For all those who have decided to follow You, may this be a year of NO TURNING BACK.  May this be a year of following You, not people and not the world.  May we all fulfill our heart commitments, fully committed to You, Jesus.  May You, Lord, complete ALL You have begun in each one of us by Your Spirit – all for Your glory.

God, may the presence of Your Spirit guide us by peace and fill us with the joy of the Lord as our strength.

May ALL our steps be ordered of the Lord in 2019! Amen!

Faith in the Waiting

Our faith is tried and tested in the waiting for answers to prayers and waiting to see promises fulfilled.


In the waiting, we are transformed.


In the waiting, hidden motives and attitudes of our hearts are revealed.


In the waiting, our faith grows stronger.


In the waiting, we grow stronger.


In the waiting, we are challenged to grow deeper in Christ.


In the waiting, there is a constant fight for our faith to waiver.


In the waiting, the enemy schemes for us to fall into the trap of doubt, fear, compromise, worry, and soaking in self pity.


In the waiting, Jesus calls us to the joy of His presence, while the enemy is calling us to a pity party.


We have to keep on believing and trusting God and His Word without seeing.

This is faith.


Do we still love, serve, and passionately praise and worship God while we are waiting on answers and promises we are believing and standing on?

We don’t love, serve or worship God based on His answering our requests. We love, serve and worship God because of Who He is.

God has already demonstrated His amazing love and faithfulness to us while providing for the forgiveness of our sins, salvation, and abundant and eternal life through Jesus Christ our Savior and Lord.

Our part now is to love Him back with “ALL our heart, soul, mind and strength” and to live “by faith and not by sight.”


Wait in the Lord’s presence, beloved ones – in worship – in prayer – in The Word – and in faith – and be strengthened today.He is our exceeding great reward. Amen.


*Pray and wait.

*Pray and worship.

*Pray and serve.

*Pray and believe.

*Pray in faith.

*Pray continually.

*Get stronger.

*Grow deeper.

*Wait on the Lord.

*The best is yet to come!
