Reflection

The enemy’s biggest attack concentration is the family system. After destabilizing the first family, he successfully gained entry into the world and robbed man of his place of dominion.

We’ll be praying and declaring that the light of God will shine in our families this year and those who are not saved will encounter the power of Christ’s love. Those who are ill will be healed, and those who are going through one challenge or the other will be restored.

There are so many good wishes you have for your family, but scolding, complaining and whining, planning and working is not enough to bring those dreams to come to pass.

The Bible says in Proverbs 21 vs. 31 that “The horse is made ready for the day of battle, but victory rests with the LORD.

God wants you to stand in authority and claim your family’s restoration, salvation, healing, deliverance, and prosperity. He wants you to present your family to Him daily in prayers. As you do, great things will begin to happen, and you will see great manifestation of God’s power.

This year, our families will not miss out on God’s plans in Jesus Christ name.


Read and Meditate

1 Timothy 5:8 – Anyone who does not provide for their relatives, and especially for their household, has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.

1 Peter 4:8 – Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.

Ecclesiastes 4:12 – “Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.”

Ephesians 4:2-3 – “Be completely humble and gentle; Be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the spirit through the bond of peace.”

Psalm 34:3-9: Trust in the Lord and do good;   dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.

4 Take delight in the Lord,   and he will give you the desires of your heart.

5 Commit your way to the Lord;    trust in him and he will do this:

6 He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn,    your vindication like the noonday sun.

7 Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; do not fret when people succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.

8 Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret—it leads only to evil.

9 For those who are evil will be destroyed, but those who hope in the Lord will inherit the land.

LORD, in this case my land is my relationship. I confess my faults in thoughts, words and actions in this relationship. Forgive me, cleanse me and let your mercy be made manifest for me by the Blood of Jesus Christ.

I command you demons causing strife, anger, quarreling, misunderstanding, thoughts of indecency, addiction to negativity, and separation to go into the abyss and remain their bound forever and ever, in Jesus name.

    Hi,

    God gave me a word that my marriage would be restored five years ago. I’m still waiting and praying. We haven’t spoke in a few years, but I know nothing is impossible with God and He keeps His promises and is so faithful! I’m also praying for his salvation too as we were both atheists but God got me so he can get him too. I’m praying for God to restore our communication and hoped you would pray with me. Thank you so much!

      Dear beloved Ashley,

      We are in prayers and agreement with you. Heaven and earth will pass away, but God’s Word will never pass away. Together we bind the spirit of delay projected against your life and marriage and we claim total restoration this year, in Jesus Christ name.

      We also claim his salvation and bind the spirit of atheism and cast it into abyss, in Jesus name.

      Amen.
