Election Consecration 2020
Bethel Friends and Family:
As we walk into this election season, it is imperative that the people of God exercise their civic duty to vote carefully and prayerfully for those that they believe that God would have in places of leadership, throughout this country.
For this reason, we have prepared a scriptural prayer for our use, to remind us of our responsibilities are as people of God and citizens of our country.
From the first day of Early Voting in the state of Florida, through the national election day, there are scriptures given to encourage us to pray for those in our lives and in the lives of our land, along with a prayer that has be crafted from the scriptures, which remind us of who and Whose we are.
Our prayer is that it would bless you, in this season.
Father, I give You thanks and praise, for this is the day that You have made; I will rejoice and be glad in it.
I thank You for Your provision, Your protection and Your power. I thank You for Your presence that surrounds me by night and by day. I thank You for Your Word, which is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my pathway. I thank You that by it, I receive guidance, wisdom and abundant life.
I thank You God, that no weapon formed against me shall prosper, and every tongue that rises against me in judgment, I condemn, for that is Your heritage unto me.
I thank You, Lord, for increase is my portion. I thank You, that because I seek to be like Jesus, that I shall increase in wisdom, stature and in favor with God and man. I thank You that the years of my life are increased.
I thank You, Father, for this, my set time for favor.
I thank You, Lord, that I am blessed in the city and in the country, blessed in my going out and coming in; I thank You, that my relationships are blessed, that my children are blessed, my home is blessed, my investments are blessed. I thank You, Father, that although my enemies step to me one way, they shall flee from me seven ways. I praise You, Father, for the table you have set before me in the presence of my enemies. I thank You, God, for You have commanded blessings to come upon me and overtake me, as I diligently pursue Your Word, Your Work and Your Way.
I thank You that no evil will befall me; neither shall any plague come near my dwelling, for You have given Your angels charge over me. They keep me in all my ways. In my pathway is life, healing and health.
Forgive me, Lord, for allowing any fear, guilt, self-rejection, self-hatred, unforgiveness, bitterness, envy, sin, pride, or rebellion to open the door to any sickness or infirmity. I renounce these things and cast out all spirits of infirmity that would attack my body in the name of Jesus.
Lord, You heal all of my diseases. You are the health of my countenance.
I decree and declare that I am loosed from diabetes, high blood pressure, strokes, heart attacks, all cancers, high cholesterol, arthritis, blood diseases and physical pain. I command all hereditary spirits of sickness to come out of me, along with any other assignment that was sent to attack my body, for by the stripes of the Lord I am healed. I thank You that, by the blood of the Lamb I am delivered, and by the power of God I am set free indeed, for you have redeemed my soul from destruction.
I thank You that I prosper and am in health, even as my soul prospers.
Father, I sever all ungodly soul ties, immoral and unproductive relationships in the name of Jesus.
• I forgive any person who has ever hurt me, disappointed me, abandoned me, mistreated me, or rejected me.
• I renounce all envy, jealousy, and covetousness in the name of Jesus.
• I renounce all selfishness, self-will, self-pity, self-rejections, self-hatred, and self-promotion in the name of Jesus.
Lord, bless my latter end more than my beginning. Thank You, for restoring to me the years that the devourers have eaten.
I pray Your blessing upon the Body of Christ today. May Your peace surround us. May Your power strengthen us. May Your wisdom instruct us. May Your presence protect us.
I pray that You order our steps, guide our feet and salt our speech in ways that glorify you and edify our brothers and sisters. I pray that discernment would increase, that we may see opportunities to be a blessing to others. I pray that the souls that we touch today will see You shining through us.
Father, I pray that you grant us wisdom and discernment in this election season, to discern the difference between darkness and light, truth and error, real from imaginary. Help me to weed through deceptive advertisements and political statements, to see the truth that is set before me. Grant me the grace to place my vote for the person that you desire to use in headship.
We decree and declare that victory is ours today, in the name of Jesus. Goodness and mercy shall follow us. Favor goes before us. The joy of the Lord strengthens us. Through You, we are complete. Through You, we are more than conquerors, this day.
We commit this day to You, in the matchless name of Jesus, we pray.
