THIRTY DAY PRAYER CHALLENGE - DAY 19


PRAY THE NAMES OF GOD


DAY 19


GOD IS SOVEREIGN


One of the many definitions of Sovereign is "An almighty monarch or ruler....who possesses the ultimate or supreme power" (basically, to do as he wills). Many kings of the earth (and some queens) have exercised that, to the detriment of their subjects. History records one of the most brutal monarchs was Mary, Queen of Scots. 


Known as Bloody Mary, she brutalized and killed many who did not agree with her state run church at the time. Most of her victims were Christians. However, one in particular scared the daylights out of her. His name was John Knox, the founder of the Presbyterian Church.


Knox was well known as a prayer warrior who specialized in  Imprecatory prayer (which is prayer, as King David did in Psalm 35, asking God to deal harshly with one's enemies). Knox was a like a thorn in the side of Bloody Mary. She is known to have said "I fear the prayers of John Knox more than ALL the assembled armies of Europe"!


Here is the absolute monarch of Britain, afraid of one man praying to a God! While imprecatory prayers are not to be trifled and played around with, Prayer in General to the Supreme Monarch of the Universe is not just highly recommended but mandatory for the believer!


Think about the Royalty in Heaven: Father God - Abba - is Sovereign. I mean, He sits on His Throne RIGHT NOW-RIGHT NOW, and myriads of angels attend Him in His Court! Then Jesus...oh my Jesus! How sweet the Name of Jesus sounds, in a believer's ears!


Jesus is called the King of Kings three times in the New Testament and if you click here, a new window will pop up with one page carrying ALL three verses! 
In 1 Timothy 6:15, He shows He is the King of Kings. 
In Revelation 17:14, the stupid rulers of this world will line up one day soon to fight the Lamb - Jesus, Whom they will never defeated, because He is the King of Kings.
In Revelation 19:16. He returns on His white horse and on His robe is written "King of Kings"! 

Friends, this is the REAL Monarch and Supreme Commander of all things! There is no other! Therefore, read this passage and pray with me:



Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O LORD, and you are exalted as head above all. Both riches and honor come from you, and you rule over all. In your hand are power and might, and in your hand it is to make great and to give strength to all. And now we thank you, our God, and praise your glorious name.
(1 Chronicles 29:11-13 ESV)


Father, in the Name of Jesus, Majesty, Ruler of the Universe, Almighty and Most Sovereign Lord, I come to You now, on bended knee, in all humility, praising You for Who You are!

Lord there is none like You. No one else can make the stars shine, the seas to roar and the wind to sing. No one else can cause the mountain to break open yet deliver and delicate snowflake, of which, no two are alike! No one else can send a fish to swallow Jonah, yet use two fish and some loaves of barley to feed thousands with many baskets of leftovers.


My God and My King, You rise above the Heavens where You have been seated from time eternal to infinity. My puny mind cannot grasp the true Regal Nature of Your Glory in the Heavens or the power worship right now, before You, in the Throne Room! It just floors me, Abba Father!



You give Grace to the Humble, Judgment to the evil.
You give Riches untold, some of them material and temporal things.
You give Good things to those who blaspheme and curse You, because You are good and generous....and with the hope that many will be saved regardless.
You give Strength, health and true joy every morning to those who walk in Your Anointing and seek You out daily!

Great is Your faithfulness, Lord unto me and everyone whom You have called by name to be a daughter or son of the Living God.


O Sovereign God, Who maketh and knoweth all, I worship You in the Fullness of Your Glory and bask in Your Holy Presence this wonderful day that You have made! Thank You, my master! I remain, ready to do Your Perfect Will, in the Name of Jesus,

Amen!


TOMORROW: GOD IS JEHOVAH-NISSI
