We have no need for wasting time in meaningless chantings and irreverent music, brought into Your sanctuary from a filthy world and appropriating the Name of Jesus on it. We have nothing to gain in Your sight, from the mindless mysticism of some of these prayer movements who are no different from some of the false prophets who fed lies to Jehoakin when the weeping prophet Jeremiah was Your only true messenger. We must repent and seek the Cleansing of the Blood of Christ to remove every false doctrine, every made up philosophy and even every idea about You, which we, as formerly lost sheep came up with in our own minds, before Christ set us free, as captives in our own prisons of sin and improper teaching.
Father, we willingly set those aside. I cast off all that that was brainwashed into me and seek Your Word, Your Truth and Your Statutes. Lord, Your precepts and commands are so simple and clear, even a child can understand and believe and yet, their riches are unfathomable. My thoughts are like filthy rags which are to be discarded in the landfill of corrupt humanity as I seek and put on the white robes of the True knowledge of Christ. This is the only way that we, Your people, can even approach You in Your Holiness, Splendor and Righteousness. Oh God, that the world may know that Obedience to the One True God, and His Son Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to resting in You, to rejoicing in You, to being revived in You!
Lord, I purpose, we purpose to obey You that we may walk in Your Peace and Your Will all the days of our lives, and even sooner - every minute of every one of the coming days and weeks and months ahead. We trust and obey because there is no other way to dwell in Your Presence. If the Savior and Creator of the World, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, did not consider equality with You, Father, a thing to be grasped and if He, In the days of His flesh, He offered up both prayers and supplications with loud crying and tears to the One able to save Him from death, and He [d]was heard because of His piety (Hebrews 5:7), then we too, can take every filthy thought, every ungodly thought and man-made philosophy...we can take everything that distracts and directs us away from You - captive - because Your Holy Spirit lives in us and has given us the power to execute that extraction that we may finally and completely turn to the Word and Ways of Christ, Who gave us the example for living eternal life in the Now, as we live daily, under the anointed direction of the Spirit of the Living God, who guides us, Your saved and Your servants through Jesus Christ our Lord, amen. Lord give us Your Shalom, Lord give us Your rest, Lord give revive us again. Amen.

DAY TWENTY SEVEN:
Monday, January 26, 2015
Heavenly Father, we remain persuaded, convinced, sure, know that we know and are confirmed, affirmed and firm in our Belief, Trust and Faith in You as Sovereign God and Lord of our lives. We believe in You, trust in You and love, obey, honor, magnify, lift up and glorify the Name of King Jesus all the days of our lives, now and always.
Father my heart is not troubled. My spirit is at peace. My trust is in You. My Hope is built on nothing less but Jesus' Blood and Righteousness and I bow before His Throne, as I dare not, could not, don't want to and will not see any other, any thing, any distraction, any philosophy or any ungodly perverted corrupt or evil thing which this world offers, than the sweet refrain of Jesus' Name and His Word. His Word, which is Thy Word, liveth in my heart, my mind, my body, my finger tips and go with me as I walk, talk, eat, sleep, and breathe.
Lord, let me walk with Thee all the while, closer and closer, until I see the things You see, until I discern the matter such as You do, until I walk in the doctrines and manner of the Lord, according to His Great and Mighty Will. No one can know the Mind of the Lord, no one can know Your Ways, because they are so much more, well....amazing than ours. But Lord, when we ask, and we seek in fasting and prayer and with every fiber of our being, You reveal. You have revealed so many things which cannot be truly communicated as You meant them for Your Glory and my edification.
So let me, this day and always, and not just me but all who call upon the Name of the Lord - and who declare Him as Lord of their lives - may we all see that bond. It is a bond way beyond the inseparable. It is a bond which Holy Spirit has sealed until the day of redemption as the guarantee, but it is also a bond which longs and yearns and desire and more intimate, a more dynamic, a more fluid and interactive relationship with You than even the close one we have right now. Draw me closer, Heavenly Father, as I seek Thy Holy Countenance moment by moment. So while my heart may be perturbed by the evil and things and concerns of this world for family and foundations falling apart, my spirit jumps for joy at the worship in Holy Heavenly Tabernacle as our prayers and praise rise up to the Temple and before Your Throne, this very hours...and this can only be done, through the Faith given to all of us, who believe in You, Lord Jesus, amen.

PRAYER:(Against Anxiety, Day 7)
Most Holy and awesome God in Heaven, as Your servants David and Jeremiah both proclaimed heavenly truth that You knew us before You formed us in the womb, it comes down to this, Lord - my entire being is Yours, sinful man since Adam have corrupted it, we need redemption and relief from sinful fears - and only You can have the Will, the Power and the Inclination to rescue Your creation.
Lord, we are made in the Image and Likeness of You and under such an amazing configuration we operate in a reality which should be other worldly, but always gets bogged down and oppressed by sin, fear and the wrong kind of trembling. So Lord, You know where all that we have hidden from You reside. Send Your fine-toothed comb through our spirits, body and soul and have an intimate knowledge of what we think, say and do. We know You have complete access and since You are a Gentleman of the First Degree, You will not come in unless invited. So Father, we invite, implore, beg, plead and petition You to come fully into every part of our lives and take over. This is the only way You can "know my heart" as the Scripture above says.

PRAYER:(Against Anxiety, Day 6)
Who is like You, and who can out-give, out-love, out-grace You, oh Sovereign One? No one! You take away our fear and anxious moments by the strong whisper of Your Voice, as You direct us back to Your Written Word where You said "fear not" so many times, it is the most powerful exhortation in the Scripture! In our troubles and weakness, we overlook these things and subjugate our faith into second place, choosing to be like the lost of humanity and operate in the paradigm of fear. While, oh God, this may a natural human reaction, You did not call us or expect Your elect to do this sort of thing, but to trust and believe.

PRAYER: (Against Anxiety, Day 5)
Great God in Heaven, we bless Your Holy Name as we seek to come to the end of ourselves, so that we may see You better. We are so caught up in the trap of the now and what is in our line of vision, that our perspective is becoming more and more like the world, whose vision is not that of the Holy and Sovereign God, but most times are similar to the god of this world, the prince and power of the air.
Lord everything we see is troubling, from what goes on in our homes and churches to what transpires in the curricula in schools, colleges, the finance world, the city hall and even the otherwise great institutions which once stood for Truth and Morality, according to Thy Word. When the secular and the lost in the politics and the judicial system ended Your presence by taking away prayer and Bible reading in schools over 50 years ago, they left the god of this world to fill this gap, and it has gotten worse since. What this has led to is three lost generations of ‘nones’ and others who have walked away, or perish for a lack of vision. Their ungodly versions of vision, and the corrupt plans of this world continually play out in front of our eyes, and like King Nebuchadnezzar, they trouble us.
We are troubled not just for our own future, but more concerned for our children and grandchildren’s salvation, sanity, future and quality of life. We are anxious and perturbed that they will have the freedom to worship you and live out their faith in their daily lives because the evil ones will command this once free society to follow the dictates of man….which is to shut up and move on and not proclaim the Name of the One Who died for us. We are understandably concerned that they do not know how to stand up for Truth and even defend, in a comprehensive way, what the Faith which You have given unto us even means.
Lord we know that the righteous – Your Elect – will never go hungry and their children will never go begging bread, because You provide for Your own, but let these fears and concerns for the future, the kinds that trouble our sleep be allayed and may our seed- the arrows with which You have filled our quivers, be filled with courage from the Holy Spirit to face the increasing evil and persecution they will face, through the Strength and calling on the Power of Your Name, the Name above all names, in heaven and on earth – Jesus Christ, Provider and Protector, amen.

PRAYER: (Against Anxiety, Day 4)
Heavenly Father, Your Word is written in the Heavens and forever it is true. It rises to the ends of the earth, seals joy in the hearts of many, fear in the hearts of most and a lack of concern in the hearts of others. Your Word is sufficient for me. It drives me, it inspires me, it instructs me in the night and directs me in the day. It washes over me, it anoints my head even, with the oil of joy as its beauty overrules the ashes and soothes the souls to the point of healing. It is a balm in Gilead and the river of cool water - nay, an oasis in the dry thirsty desert of life. It gives Life. Your true Word, oh God, gives life and love and limitless Grace to the humble while condemning the proud.
How can my soul be downcast when I drink in Your Goodness, as seen in Your Promise. How can I wallow in self-pity, anxiety, fear and nervousness when I consider Your Heavens, the Work of Your Fingers and the Majesty of Your Creation. You made man and even the Son of Man, a little lower than the angels. You gave Him up as a sacrifice to sin, like a sheep led to slaughter only to let Him be exalted above all. You raised Him up on the third day to the eternal glory in heaven and on earth. He sits on Your Right Hand of Power for all eternity, one today to rule this earth with a rod of iron, and a heart of velvet love, grace, mercy and compassion. He brings us home at the instant of death, in the twinkling of an eye and our cup runneth over with the hope of eternal life in Your Kingdom, the Kingdom of His Marvelous Light. His Name is Jesus, Adonai. El Shaddai, Your Son Yahweh refreshes me constantly - from day to day. His mercies never cease. Great is His Faithfulness, Lord unto me.
So why should I be troubled and full of turmoil and disquiet in my soul? How can I be ruined in my spirit, walk around with my head hanging down, bumping into things and sad all the day long when my God and my Savior, cares for me? Praise, worship and honor belong to You, oh God, who has shown me the way out of a crisis, any crisis which affects the souls and lives of men and women - and that way is found in chasing after You first, praising You, worshipping You, staying super-glued and connected to Your Holy Word and obeying every statute and directive which cometh from on High, to my eternal benefit.
You are my God. You are my help in ages past and my hope for years to come. Be thou my guide while I live upon this earth. Lead me into paths of righteousness and near streams of cool waters and green valleys, that I may continue to rest in you, free from the horror and panic of this world, as the Joy of the Lord shines from my soul giving testimony and proof of the Living Word, who dwelleth within me. Oh Lord, my God, how excellent, wonderful, awesome and mighty is Your Name, the Name of King Jesus, Lord of Heaven's Armies and it is in His Name I pray, amen.

PRAYER: (Against Anxiety, Day 3
Father, most Heavenly Father, the Scripture once asked the question "how long shall the wicked reign" when the question should be "why do I keep doing the things which drive me insane"? You, oh God, have the future of the wicked in Your Hands and that is sure, but You also told us not to be anxious, not be torn up in side, not to be distracted, beat up, beat down, flounder around or just let fear abound, when YOU TOLD US to come to You about everything.
Lord, Your Word says EVERYTHING, which means every single thing and we approach the Throne of Grace right now, in the strong Name of Jehovah Shammah, Jesus Who is there for us, in prayer and supplication in humble submission....as a beggar begging bread but with the authority and sense of belonging to You, as an adopted son and/or daughter, an adopted child, such as we are. Lord, You said in this Word to not just come to You, but oh, what an incredible thing that the Living God Whose Son, the Savior of the World intercedes for us, actually listens as the Holy Spirit interprets with groanings too strong for words!
Lord, may our petitions and intercession rise up like the incense which permeate the Throne Room of Heaven, where the Seraphim sing day and night, non-stop since days of old, "Holy Holy Holy, Holy Holy Holy"....oh How Holy are You Lord, that Your Spirit has to make our petitions filter through Your template to be worthy of even being brought before You in this manner! Praise Your Great Name! Such a thing is unfathomable as we ponder what is happening, the worship in Heaven at this time, the non-stop praise and power of the Almighty as He sits in Spirit and in Magnificent Light. Lord, we can be nothing but grateful and giving thanks to You is not even enough.
It is in this spirit of gratitude, an attitude of thanksgiving that we cry out to You on behalf of our souls, our families, our lost loved ones, our neighbors and co-workers and the gas station clerk down the street. We lift up prayerfully our towns and businesses, our community and political leaders, most of whom only give You lip service, while doing their own thing. We pray for babies are are taken in the womb, ordained by American judges who are also now about to blaspheme You and Your Holy Word, as regards Biblical marriage. We pray You intervene and if we are fully under the Romans 1 Judgment, we pray for our Christian brethren persecuted in their bakeries, wedding shops and more for taking a stand for the True Faith of Christ, not what man has appropriated and twisted to modern culture. We pray for those who hunger in lands of famine and want. We pray for those who are in war zones and especially the United States military and other allied troops. Lord, protect us this day. Keep us from evil and temptation and help us walk in the path of righteousness as we obey and function under the Authority of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, in Whose Name I pray, amen.

PRAYER: (Against Anxiety, Day 2
Heavenly Father, great is Your Name and You are greatly to be praised! You, Whose Son conquered fear, death and hell sit in the heavenlies over all, so great and mighty are You Lord. By the profound sacrifice on the Cross, which satisfied the eternal blot on humanity and atoned perfectly for all sin, for all time, You reconciled man unto Yourself and offered Him a road back to eternal fellowship with You. Lord we long for that fellowship because it is the kind which causes us to be able to persevere through these difficult and trying times.
Your Word says here to “not worry about tomorrow”, and You are correct. We have enough in front of us to simply make it through this day. Those in persecuted lands who have had no bread as they lose homes, land, jobs even family and freedom by the hordes, who represent the evil one, do not even know where their next piece of break cometh from. We are so grateful for all you have given us, in abundance and may we share with those who are less blessed and fortunate. No one knows what the morrow will bring, but You, and from Your Promises in the Scriptures say, if we trust fully in You, that it shall be well and taken off our plate.
Lord, the anxiety many feel comes from not just the uncertainty of this day, but the scary prospect of tomorrow as evil triumphs over good, for this time only, but nevertheless, still triumphs. As the public educational systems corrupt Your little ones, thus preparing to answer to You on Judgment Day not knowing about the millstone and the sea….as the weak western church stand a mile wide led by super-rich under-shepherds who sugarcoat the True Gospel to keep numbers paying tithes….as the culture brainwashes with perverted messages and false religions of self-realization and mysticism demonic religions...even so, as our young people see no hope for the future, with massive college debts and no prospects….as all of this happens, confusion reigns; panic arises; hopelessness through the roof and even Your people, who are called by Your Name, feel they have nowhere to turn.
But Father, we know they feel this way because most don’t know the Scriptures, they don’t know the Power of the Word or the God Who gave it. Father, Your equation is simple, straightforward and out in the open for all to see “seek first the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness”….and then we will be able to persevere through anxious times, without the anxiety and all the physical, emotional and spiritual baggage that go with that anxiety. Father, we pray that Your people start picking up the Scriptures and search for themselves to find out just what the Kingdom of God is and why His true elect are currently living in that eternal peaceful realm, while still on earth in our current form….abiding in Your everlasting Arms! Even if their preachers don’t preach the real Gospel, we pray they seek answers themselves and Your help in understanding Your Word, Your Promise and Your Abode – the kingdom of heaven! And Lord, by pursuing Your heart, by pressing into know You more, by proclaiming what You are doing in our lives, no matter how small or insignificant it may seem, we pray that more and more will see Your Holiness, Your Hand in creation and all the events surrounding our lives and more. May they seek and see more of the Righteousness of Christ confirmed in His Word and through the Holy Spirit Who lives in the true believers. In this manner, oh God, helps all Your people to be anxious for nothing and to see Your Plans perfectly aligned with Your Timing, for our own sake and good, and help us believe more and thus put all our trust and faith RIGHT NOW, in Jesus Christ, and it is in His Name we pray, believe and achieve this shalom and departure for anxious moments. Amen.
