Today I’ve asked my administrative assistant and dear friend Sheila Mangum, creator of The Power of a Three Stranded Prayer, to share with us a prayer for Thanksgiving. (Be sure to check out her scripture-saturated e-book with 40 more three-stranded prayers at the end of this post) May you and those you love be blessed at this special time of year.
We are here with Thanksgiving welling up in our hearts for You. (Psalm 100:4) You are great and greatly to be praised. (Psalm 96:4) Power and might belong to You and You alone. You are the Almighty God, the Holy One of Israel. (Isaiah 43:3) Sovereign Creator, You see and know all things. You are our faithful Father. (1 Corinthians 8:6) We are in awe of You and Your ways. (Habakkuk 3:2)
You are so very worthy to be praised and thanked. (Psalm 145:3) There is none like YOU. (Jeremiah 10:6) Your goodness has no match. (Psalm 34) Your mercies have no end. (Lamentations 3:22-23) Your love has no bounds. (Ephesians 3:18) Those who know the power in Your Most Holy Name trust in You explicitly. (Psalm 9:10) We are seeking You today with all our hearts; and You promised to be found. (Deuteronomy 4:29) Such a beautiful love You have for us! We are blessed to say, “You are our God!” (Psalm 31:14-15)
You are Jehovah El Emeth: the LORD God of Truth. Your child can be guaranteed that Your Word will not return to You void, but it will accomplish what You sent it to do. (Isaiah 55:11) Forever, Your Word is settled in heaven. (Psalm 119:89) We send Your Word forth from this prayer as a weapon to bless, provide, defend, protect, and also, deliver us from the enemy’s tricks and schemes. (Proverbs 30:5, Psalm 121:7)
Your Word is a bright lamp to our feet. It guides the perfect way for us, giving wisdom, discernment, sound judgment, and a path to Your highest and best for us. (Psalm 119:105) Praying Your Word back to You empowers us to overcome the schemes of the enemy and overcome this world by locking our eyes, heart, voice, and lips to Your Promises to us. (John 16:33)
What more has Your Word been sent to do? Heal, speak, deliver, transform, and set free. (Psalm 107:20) Your Word has the power to resurrect, change, and restore. (Hebrews 4:12, 2 Timothy 3:16) Praying and believing in Your Word brings life to hearts that are barely beating. (Psalm 19:7) Your Word, abiding in the heart of Your child, can move mountains, breathe life into dead bones, and bulldoze the hardest of hearts. (John 15:7)
What You wrote in Scripture thousands of years ago stands today. (Hebrews 13:8) You have not changed Your mind, nor are You like man that You would lie to those who belong to You. (Numbers 23:19) No, You are the living God who keeps His promises to His own. You are always, Faithful and True.
Your Holy Scripture is filled with beautiful ways that You fight for Your children. The passages recount how You answer the cries of Your people faithfully. (Psalm 18:6) Unforgettable moments of hope are all over its pages. We see Your brilliance and might in the Red Sea parting, the sun standing still, prison walls falling, battles being won, the dead coming back to life, and the resurrection of our Savior. Nothing is too hard for You. (Jeremiah 32:27)
Thank You for not being a respecter of persons. (Acts 10:34, Romans 2:11) You can give an unforgettable moment of hope for Your child in their hard circumstances too. We pray for their own Red-Seas to part, restoration of all things lost back to them, battles won, hearts to heal, and their prison walls to fall in the mighty Name of Jesus.
Yes, direct Your child’s steps to Your goodness. (Proverbs 16:9) May they have the very Mind of Christ; a mind that stays on You and Your Word. (1 Corinthians 2:16) Father, in the mighty Name of Jesus, please astound Your child by answering this prayer exceedingly, abundantly more than they could ever dream. (Ephesians 3:20)
We come in agreement because Your Word accomplishes what it is sent to do. (Matthew 18:19) It does! Thank you for this beautiful family of women on this blog whose hearts are set apart for You and are to be awakened to the empowerment of Your Word. May they be untangled from this world and tangled up with You and Your living Word in the Secret Place. It is in the Secret Place they will find the miracle their heart cries out for. Your Word promises so. (Psalm 91)
As we consecrates ourselves to You and set our hearts apart; speak to us LORD! (Joshua 3:5) Speak powerfully to Your child today with the heavenly revelation and spiritual knowledge needed for today’s hard challenges. (Ephesians 1:17) The enemy’s whispers have been cruel and crippling. I pray Your Voice will be all Your child will hear. (John 10:27) I pray your child will not listen to another taunting voice…their own. The voice of an unrenewed mind can be just as harsh as the accuser’s.
Father, this makes the fight hard! Our battle plan? That this battle is Yours and is to be won in the powerful place of praying Your Word. (2 Chronicles 20:15) May Your Word take it’s rightful place in our hearts and may we prosper because of it!
I pray You show Yourself strong and faithful in my friend’s beautiful pursuit of You.(1 Chronicles 16:11) I pray You empower Your child with wisdom, discernment, and direction through the Holy Spirit where they most need it today. May the Holy Scriptures be forever sealed in their hearts as they pray the Three Stranded Prayer. Being empowered by Your Word and abiding in Your Word are where the miracles they need are birthed.
Whisper in Your child’s ear the beautiful plans and miracles You have dreamed for them. Make these beautiful plans so outrageous they will not even believe You! (Psalm 126) Then continue working behind the scenes doing what Your do best; making a way where there seems to be no way for those who have put their trust in You! (Psalm 25:3, Luke 18:27)
Amen and AMEN!
I love you,
