Pursuing Intimacy With God
The Secret of No Plan B
Psalm 62:5-8 “Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him. Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken. My salvation and my honor depend on God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge. Trust in him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.”
Dear Abba Father,
I believe one of the most wonderful secrets to be closer to You is to make You our only help and hope and have no plan B of our own. In life, we often find other things to be our reliance and help, such as money, health insurance, house, work, children, etc. Unknowingly, they have become our salvation and comfort, the “other gods” we rely on. As King David said, “Those who run after other gods, their sorrows will increase.” (Psalm 16:4) Therefore, I will arise and return to the secret place and cry out to You: Abba Father, only You can help me; I don’t have other plans and if You don’t help me, I will have no way out. Oh Father, You alone are my salvation; You are my God, I want to worship You!
I will declare in faith over and over the increasingly strong and clear echo within me: “This is my beloved; because he loves me, I will rescue him and reveal Myself to him.” Oh, Abba Father, thank you for letting my heart rely solely on You and my eyes focus on You, so that my life is filled with love and my faith is stirred to follow You freely. I wholly believe that You have a wonderful plan for me because You are the perfect Father, my Salvation, my Glory, my Rock of strength, and my Refuge! I will worship You all the days of my life!
In the name of Lord Jesus we pray, Amen!
Repentance for family 03
So I prophesied as he commanded me, and breath entered them; they came to life and stood up on their feet—a vast army. (Ezekiel 37:10)
Abba Father, thank You again for Your grace. Your love draws us to You, knowing that You will be with us in accordance with Your promises. Although the times are turbulent, Your words are settled in heaven. We will not be shaken, nor afraid. Increase our hunger for Your word, to be willing to study the Bible to understand Your will and the principles of Your way.
Abba Father, forgive us for not being good fathers and mothers. Pour out Your great love to remove the curse of fatherlessness and motherlessness. Heal wounded souls to break the yoke of slavery so that we can receive the heart of sonship, to be reconciled with You so that we can also return to our natural parents. Stop hatred and indifference, so the family and the land are no long cursed. Lord, please demolish the walls between the two generations, heal parent-child relationships in each family, restore parental authority, and the position and unity of love in the family. Let parents be diligent in their responsibility to rebuild order in the family. As faith is passed down, the land will be blessed.
(You can skip the sins you have not committed in the following prayer, or you may stand in the gap and repent on behalf of others.)
Oh, Lord! On behalf of myself and the global family, I am asking You to forgive me and our family. I have committed the following sins: (idolatry, witchcraft, cult, fornication, oppression, deception, racial hatred, and false witnessing causing the shedding of innocent blood…). Lord, I come against any sinful words or thoughts that have brought curses upon me and my family. In the name of the Lord Jesus, I break the curse of ________. Thank you for dying on the cross for us, covering us with Your blood for our transgressions. Forgive the sins of my ancestors, redeem us from any curses of legalism, that my family will no longer be under the bondage of the enemy. By the promised the Holy Spirit, we can receive a rich inheritance in Christ Jesus.
In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.

Pray For Israel
Pray for Repentance of Israel
Please pay attention to this note:
[This year is Israel’s 70th anniversary but the Israeli government allows the Gay Pride Parade in eight Israeli cities between June 8th till August 2nd and the finale of the parade took place in Jerusalem on August 2nd. This has opened a huge gap for the enemy. When Israel celebrates the founding of the nation 70 years ago, Satan enticed the Israeli people to enter into demonstrations promoting homosexuality, to sin against God and to provoke His indignation, so that surrounding enemies may take the chance to attack Israel. Its ultimate purpose is to block and thwart God’s plan to bring His divine calling and destiny for Israel to fullness, especially at such a season when Israel enters her 70th year of establishment. but our God is victorious. Let us join us to pray for Israel and believe that God will completely turn Israel around and regain lost ground.]
- Ask God to forgive the Israeli government for allowing gay parades throughout Israel
- May God give Israel the spirit of repentance and save the souls of Israelites
- Let the fire of the Holy Spirit continue to cleanse Israel, especially the places where the parades have passed by and the hearts of the people in those cities. May God have mercy on Israel, and rid Israel of the defilement caused by the gay parades, both on the land and on people’s heart
Pray For Iran – Israel’s Greatest Enemy
[Background: The state of Iran is still the archenemy of Israel, which also exert control over the Hezbollah, the Assad regime in Syria and Hamas, to name a few. Iran is beginning a major naval exercise in the Strait of Hormuz, which is a control point of the waterway into the Persian Gulf, affecting many countries other than Iran. This has triggered an announcement from the US to begin naval exercise in the nearby region. Any attempt to close up the Strait of Hormuz is effectively a declaration of war. The Israeli response is to declare that she will react strongly against any such attempts to close off the Red Sea, which is a strategic waterway through which southern Israel gain access to all the oceans. In the meantime, due to economic problems and anti-government protests, internal instability is building up in Iran.]
- We ask God to help Israel stay vigilant, and respond prudently to each action that Iran is taking.
- Grant wisdom to Israeli and American military leaders, so that they would be able to discern and respond sensibly to what Iran is doing and expressing in public. (Proverbs 8:14-16)
- Shake the political leadership of Iran.
- Break the bow of Elam: according to God’s promise, may the bow of Elam be broken, and the kings and princes be destroyed.
- Break the links of Iran with Hezbollah and Hamas: may the Lord use internal uprisings to break the links of Iran with Hezbollah and Hamas.
- Raising up churches in Iran: use the thriving church in Iran to cause the nation to steer away from the current evil path.
- Pray that God strengthens the Christian brothers and sisters in Iran: Lord, we pray that the peace that transcends all understanding and pure joy in times of trials will fill them up with hope through the Holy Spirit. Cause them to know that God is sovereign and is in full control. He is in the process of shaking, demolishing and restraining. God is establishing for Himself His throne and stronghold in Iran. Pray that God supernaturally meets both the spiritual and physical needs of the brothers and sisters in Iran according to His faithfulness.
