Weekly Watch Focus: A Time for Praise

Friday, February 26, 2016, We have had a time of fasting and prayer over the last few weeks. The Lord spoke to me to equal our praise to our prayer, for God not only hears our prayers but inhabits our praises. Wherever God dwells, things change. His promises are made manifest.
Many families need healing. Some need financial breakthroughs. The church local and global needs revival and a harvest of souls. We are looking to God for His choice in the upcoming national elections. Let all these challenges be opportunities to get into great praise.

In the midst of national crisis, King Jehoshaphat praised his way to breakthrough-victory. Come boldly before God’s throne for His mercy. Enumerate past victories, believing He is doing even more so in our future. Boldly stand today on His promises in His Word. We are powerless against these challenges on our own. We rely on the King of Glory, declaring the battle is His (2 Chron. 20).

When Paul and Silas were in prison, they prayed and sang praises to God. The chains broke and every prison door was flung open (Acts 16). Lift up your high praises. Declare the Lord’s victory and manifest promises in this hour.


Heb. 13:15, “Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name.”

Psalm 150:6, “Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord!”

Psalm 100:4, “Who makes His angels spirits, His ministers a flame of fire.”

Psalm 22:3, “But You are holy, enthroned in the praises of Israel.”

Jeremiah 17:14, “Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved, for You are my praise.”

2 Chron. 20; Acts 16:25-26; Psalm 149:6-9; Revelation 5:12

We remember fellow believers who are oppressed and tortured for Christ’s sake. In communist China, Afghanistan, India, Nigeria, and other parts of the word, violent radicals or oppressive communism continue to persecute and even murder Christians.
We thank God and pray for our law enforcement. We ask the Lord for their safety and guidance as the carry out their duties with integrity.
As our children return to school, we cover them in prayer. Whether they attend public school, private school, home school, or college, we pray a special anointing over them.
There is a declaration of war in our culture against the identity of our children. Our foundational values and the preservation of identity for individuals and families through Christ as the building block of society is under attack.
Pray for financial recovery from what many economists are calling a recession. We humbly pray for a healthy economy and that integrity would be restored in leadership.
