Vessel of Honor Prayers (Day 1): Purge Me With Your Fire, O Lord!

Today’s Reading

But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour.

If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.


Introduction

I welcome you to our ten days vessel unto Honor prayer retreat.

As I said in my last email, we have chosen to be vessels of honor this year.  But the Lord requires that we purge ourselves of things that are dishonorable. Only then can we become vessels of honor, prepared and ready for the master’s use.

As the Lord inspired my heart…

Many times the devil is not our problem; when we are purged in God’s presence, witches and witchcraft activities cannot stand us in any way.”

So in addition to all the prophetic declarations we are making for this year, and the goals we are setting for ourselves, let us come before God in humility and plead with the Holy Spirit to purge us with His fire. When we are immersed in His presence, victory is certain. When we are purified of all things that are dishonorable, then we are confident of God’s power being revealed in our lives and families in the most powerful ways.

In my relationship with God, I have discovered that sometimes the dishonorable things that stop the flow of God’s power in our lives are not even the sins our minds quickly go to. They may be things that are deeply hidden and would require divine revelation to unmask and deal with. That is why this prayer direction is so important.

Many times I ask myself: “why does it seem like believers are looking more frustrated in the world? It seems that the more they pray and bind the devil, the more the devil torments them. Is it that God is less powerful or that God just sits up there in heaven and laughs at their prayers while they suffer?”

Well, as we continue to seek to understand this mystery, God is enlightening my heart that our hearts and priorities must adjust. As long as we have a mindset of: I’m praying to get blessed. I’m praying to solve this situation; we will continue to get confused.

We should not be struggling to be blessed because God has already blessed us with all blessings in Christ. Our earnest desire every day should be to be more like Jesus. This will bring us to His feet and inspire daily consecration. As we do this daily purging, we will discover that we naturally have victory over all of those things that we hitherto struggle to deal with.

That is exactly what God is saying to us as we prayerfully begin to ready ourselves for 2019:

Set your heart right; all the other things you are struggling with will disappear before you know it. You will experience unusual victory and breakthrough beyond your imagination.

God is ready to make us honorable men and women this year. Let us, therefore, make ourselves ready for His move.


How to Participate in This Prayer Move

  1. Fasting is not necessarily required unless you want to.
  2. Wake up every night, any time between the hours of 12 midnight to 5 am, and spend at least one hour in God’s presence.
  3. Read the Bible and meditate on God’s Word
  4. Before you pray, spend time to sing and worship God and draw closer to Him in songs.
  5. Your prayer direction should be, “Lord, Purge me of anything in my life that is dishonorable; cleanse me from whatever is preventing your power and revelation in my life.”
  6. This is the prayer direction we are focusing on these ten days. As you pray and wait on the Lord, take note of whatever revelation He brings to your heart or in a dream, and turn them into prayer.

I will publish a daily scripture focus as we wait on the Lord for renewal.

Remain blessed.

    Dear Pastor, I tried several times to buy your books in kindle form but i failed to get it.
    By kindle amazon the purchase of books is not easy not like in Apple e-bookstore.
    May I make a request that if it is possible to put your books on apple store also so that I can get copies of your books?
    Thank you Pastor for what you do for all of us who are desiring to know more of God and his will.
    Have a blessed Tuesday👑👑👑 In Christ, Belinda

        I forgot to mention, to buy new books, you will have to go on safari and acces amazon from the safari web to buy the new books. You will not be able to buy the books from the app. Once you use safari or a computer to buy the books, the will populate on the kindle app of your iPhone or iPad. I hope it helps! Be blessed 💜!

    I started the 10 day purge prqyers yesterday sleep and feel back asleep around 3Am only to be woken up by something pressing me. I tried to say Jesus to no avail. I could not get up or move. What could be the cause of such an experience.

      That sounds like a witchcraft attack. Don’t stop your prayers. The powers of darkness will not win in your life. Add this prayer: ‘O Lord, by the blood of Jesus Christ, I declare myself separated from withcraft and all evil covenants warring against my life and destiny, in Jesus name.”

    Dear Daniel
    I wanna thank God for your ministry
    I have just seen this ten day challenge now, I’m joining too.

    The last challenge we did, where we were interceding for others, really helped me to grow spiritually and in faith

    God revealed himself to me on the last Sunday of 2018 in a tremendous way! I went to my local church in Lusikisiki,rural South Africa .The sermon was in line with our theme of challenging God though December 2018 as we pray for others. When the pastor prayed, he mentioned 8 of the 10 items I was interceding for”!!!as we prayed individually in groups, my group leader mentioned the last two items.

    At the end of the service, I truly believed that God had responded to my prayers

    God bless you my Pastor
