A PRAYER OF DECLARATION OF EMPOWERMENT OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST

 
Hopefully, you will pass this along with a sense of “HOLY BOLDNESS”
as we hold fast to our FAITH and Our Father’s PROMISES to protect, provide, and never leave us alone!
Pray this prayer aloud and with authority!
 
CORONAVIRUS, I declare in Jesus’ name that your name, your title, your will, your existence HAS to bow down to the name of Jesus! His promise says that if we who choose to abide in Him, we can ask anything in His name and it will be done!
I have heard for weeks now how this “pandemic” is basically going to wipe us out …. like the bird flu and several others in recent years. I cancel that in Jesus name! I don’t deny that there is a deadly virus on the loose …. I deny it’s ability to prosper against me or my family, those I love or any part of the world. I condemn you coronavirus in the name of Jesus! Go back to hell where you came from!
I praise You, God, for the power that resides within each of us who indeed belongs to You and I use that same power and authority for my favor! Your Word says in Psalms 91:
5 Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night, nor the arrow that flies in the day.
6 Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday.
7 Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you!!!!
I stand on these words from God and His Holy Word.
I don’t know about tomorrow, but I know who holds tomorrow!
JESUS, YOU ARE LORD OVER EVERYTHING INCLUDING THIS Coronavirus and every other viruses!
We give you Praise, Glory and Honor and know that THIS and other viruses OR DISEASE will STOP in their tracks, wither at the roots and die! Spirit of infirmity, spirit of death, and spirit of fear, we command you to leave now in Jesus name! AMEN

  • READ THE DAILY DEVOTIONS from the Upper Room, Daily Bread, and especially those from RICK WARREN. Just this week, his devotions have provided inspiration and hope from topics such as: “Can’t Handle It?-God Already Knows”, “Change Worry to Worship By Asking God for Help”, “When Your Eyes Are Full of Tears, Keep Them on God”, and “How to Show Faith and Gratitude in Your Battles”. YOU CAN ALWAYS CONTACT SOMEONE TO PRAY WITH YOU!
  • SPREAD KINDNESS! – Many have already reached out to our Sick and Shut-In Members; but, they would still like to hear from YOU! Keep in contact with each other – to simply say “Hello”, or share a prayer or to speak VICTORY and not PANIC/FEAR. Make it a point each day to WRITE DOWN (at least 3 things) for which you and your family are grateful. (BE SURE TO GET OUR CHILDREN/YOUTH ENGAGED IN THIS!) Post these items around your home! – in your bedroom, on the refrigerator.
