Blessing Prayer -Day 6 – Praying for Divine Direction
This is Day 6 of our Prophetic Words. We believe that the best way for you to receive this information is to pray and have the Lord Jesus himself reveal what He has in store for you this year.
It really doesn’t matter what the world says about what will happen this year the Lord is more than able to protect you, provide for you and bring
you through any situation regardless of what is happening around you.
Just think about the 2 million Israelites that wandered the desert for 40 years – they had food, they had water, they never got sick, their clothes or shoes never wore out. That is miraculous because I am sure if anyone attempted to walk around in the desert for 40 years today they probably wouldn’t be able to go more than a few days without dying. Deuteronomy 8:4 Your clothes did not wear out and your feet did not swell during these forty years.
We serve a God of the miraculous. A prophecy for this year that concerns everyone else could be completely different for you. The Lord Jesus Christ is a God of personal relationship. He wants an individual relationship with you. Therefore, you need to hear from Him what His plans are for your individual life this year.
We’ve had a few days of cleansing to start out this process so that on Day 6 you are ready to hear and receive the message from the Lord.
The most important thing for you to know is that the Lord desires to prosper you and He has your best interest at heart.
God is more than willing to reveal His plan to you.
Psalm 138:3 When I called, you answered me; you greatly emboldened me.
Jeremiah 33:3 Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
The key to getting the direction is making time for God and coming before Him with a clean heart. You shouldn’t enter into this time of prayer hurried or with a few minutes to spare. You need to at least have 1 hour to spend in the presence of the Lord uninterrupted. If you have more time alone that will be even better.
You need to be prepared with your bible, a notebook and pen to write down whatever the Lord is saying to you.
1. To prepare your heart to receive His word you must first come before Him confessing your sins. Here is a list of scriptural sins that you can use during this time. Or, you can ask Him to reveal to you the things that you need to confess and He will reveal them to you.
Psalm 66:18-19 If I had cherished sin in my heart,the Lord would not have listened; but God has surely listened and has heard my prayer.
2. You will then need to get into a place of worship and praising the Lord, you can use any Christian music for this.
Psalm 100:4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.
3. Give thanks to the Lord for everything that He has done for you thus far.
Praise and thanksgiving brings you into the presence of the Lord. Confessing your sins removes anything that would stop Him from answering your prayers and removes the barriers that may prevent you from hearing Him.
4. Now it is time for you to ask and receive the instructions because your heart and mind is prepared to receive.
The following prayer is to ask for His Divine Direction and His prophetic word for 2013 for your life.
Merciful Father, thank you for forgiving me of my sins and for surrounding me with your love, mercy and grace. Thank you that as a child of God I can enter your throne room with confidence where I can receive all of your blessings (Hebrews 4:16). Thank you that the only mediator that I need to speak with you is Jesus whose shed blood on the cross covered all of my iniquities past, present and future (1 Timothy 2:5). Thank you that I need not be afraid to ask because I know it will be given to me and that when I come to you believing in faith You will indeed answer me (Matthew 21:22). I bind up any evil spiritual activity that may cause me to hear incorrectly and I cast them from my presence into a place where they will stand judgement before the Lord Jesus Christ. I close the ears of the enemy from hearing the plans you have for me. I blind the eyes of the evil ones from seeing it. I loose clarity of mind to receive this message (Matthew 16:19). Cleanse my mind from any preconceived notions or presumptions concerning my future as I want to hear it directly from you. Cause my mind to be opened and my ears to hear what You Holy Spirit is saying. This day I come to seeking direction, revelation and the plans that you have for me this year. Lord I need you to show me my future, what do you have in store for me in my relationships, my business life, and the ministry that you’ve given to me. I say to You speak Lord for your servant is listening and I wait for your instructions. I will write down every impression that you will give me to me now, every scripture that you will bring to my mind and I will trust in Your power to bring them to completion. I pray wisdom and understanding of what you show me so that I may make you delight in me as your servant in Jesus Name. Amen.
Now you wait. You write down every impression that will come to your mind and heart, any scriptures that you are given, any visions that you may receive at that moment and after tonight any dreams that you receive.
Trust that the Lord will speak to you very clearly through His word. Open your bible and begin reading the scriptures you received from Him. If He did not lead you to any specific scripture just open the bible and read until you get the message. Write down the scriptures in your notebook and what they mean to you.
With this information you will be ready for this year. The Lord may give you dreams and you need to write them down. Please be careful when sharing dreams with others. If you don’t understand the dreams, pray and ask the Lord to give you the interpretation. If you need an anonymous source for interpretation, please feel free to contact us if you need help interpreting any of them.
We are so excited for you. God wants you to be on the right track this year and walking in His will. Trust His message.
