There is no evil in You so anything that you bring to us is not for evil but for good!

Hear from heaven and answer our prayer. We will wait patiently to hear your answer knowing that you will indeed answer. Give us grace to receive what it is that you are speaking into our lives – our health, our family, our finances, our relationships, our ministry, our government, our world. Grant us willing hearts to obey everything that you will speak. Bind the hand of the enemy from bringing confusion and loose clarity to walk in the prosperous purposes and plans that you have for us, in Jesus Name, Amen!
