40 DAYS JOURNEY WITH THE LORD.
Moderated by Fr Justin Nzekwe
DAILY CHALLENGE: Look for like minds, or society where children of God gather, or your family and pray with today and as often as possible.
DAILY THEME: All hope is not gone.
THINK ABOUT THIS: When you face some life challenges, know that all hope is not lost. When you face family challenges, all hope is not gone. When your career, business, education, relationship, marriage seems like failing, all hope is not gone.
When it seems you are a failure among your mates, all hope is not gone. When sickness is threatening your life, there is still hope. God gives you the assurance that the dry bone shall rise again. I therefore minister Life to you, and I challenge you by the power of your baptism as a prophet, to rise with authority and command the dry bones to rise again.
Tell the devil that he will not pull you down again. Look at life differently and positively. God is already making a difference in your life today.
If you believe, Rise up now (kneel) and begin to pray.
Bible Reading – Ezekiel 37:1-14
The hand of the Lord was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the Lord, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones, And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry.
And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord God, thou knowest. Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.
Thus saith the Lord God unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live: And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the Lord.
So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone.
And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them. Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord God; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.
So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.
Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts.
Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel. And ye shall know that I am the Lord, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves,
PRAY WITH ME
Lord, you are the only one that has the final say in my life, not even the devil, or any human can overpower me. You have the final decision in the challenges I (my family) is facing. You can give life even to dry bones. I therefore call upon your power in my life. I want a new and a better life.
Let (mention a problem) not trouble my life again. Fill me with your power and let me give testimonies of your favours in my life.
Let your Holy Spirit accompany me to make this journey faithfully to the end, so that it may bear fruit in my life. Amen.
(Say this prayer as many times as you can, today)
