I was writing a prayer in my journal earlier this week, and I began to hear words for the prayer that weren’t normal to my vocabulary. There were three words in particular…I knew them, but they weren’t common for me to use. Over the next three days we will discuss them one and a time.
When I heard the first word, I knew God was really releasing something. When you are in a season of delay, and you know for certain the enemy has been working hard to obstruct your blessings and forward motion…then when you finally breakthrough and are rescued by God, you are assured that an avalanche of blessing will ensue. Multiple miracles are bound to come concurrently.
Concurrently: at the same time; simultaneously.
Here’s a portion of the prayer I wrote…
God, You know we need several miracles. I pray they would come concurrently. In Jesus’ name I decree and declare we are receiving concurrent blessings today without delay in Jesus’ name. I turn the key on concurrent blessings and open all the doors now in Jesus’ name.
The word just kept flowing into the prayer. I knew it was God giving me the words He wanted me to pray. I know this in part because I’ve been asking Him to pray through me. I’ve asked Him to help me pray prayers that are answered. Prayers that are His design. I’ve been investigating prayer in a much deeper way than I ever have before. I am determined to learn more and to move into the territory of the types of answered prayers that cause others to see and believe in the truth of Who God is, not Who they have thought He was based on the warped view the world gives us.
I so long for the world to know Jesus. The real Jesus. My best Friend and Brother…my Savior. The Hope of the world.
I believe one of the main reasons for miracles is to draw unbelievers to the goodness of God…to see His glory displayed…to bring honor to His name.
On earth as in heaven…this is the way we should pray.
God, would you rend the heavens and pour out concurrent blessings upon us. God, I long to walk in Your power, and to see You move in ways that only you can move. Ways that confound the wise. God move in my life with power. Hold our family in Your hand and use us for Your glory. We belong to You. Open heaven over our lives today and forevermore…for the honor and glory of God the Father, in Jesus’ name, amen.
I lift up my eyes to the mountains- where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip- He Who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, He Who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord watches over you- the Lord is you shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from all harm- He will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore. Psalm 121:3-4
May the glory of the Lord endure forever; may the Lord rejoice in His works- He Who looks at the earth, and it trembles, Who touches the mountains, and they smoke. I will sing to the Lord all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live. May my meditation be pleasing to Him, as I rejoice in the Lord. But may sinners vanish from the earth and the wicked be no more. Psalm 104:31-35
