OUTREACH TO WIDOWS
Praise And Worship
Father, in the name of Jesus, I thank you for your divine protection over me and my family from January 2020 to December 2020, thank you for supplying our needs and for bringing us to the end of December 2020.
“Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits:“
As this year 2020 is going to an end, I command all the blessings that God has released into my life that has not manifested to begin to manifest now, let people begin to remember me for good in the name of Jesus.
“Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation.“
You the year 2020, hear me now, as you are coming to an end, you will not swallow me, you will not swallow my children, you will not swallow any of my loved ones, we shall see your end in the name of Jesus.
“With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.”
Our Spiritual focus for the month of December 2020 is Praise.
“Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.
Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp.
For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.“
God specifically commands His children to give Him thanks.
God commands us to sing praises to Him because of the magnitude of glory praising Him brings into our lives.
“Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee.
Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us.”
Psalms 67 verse 5-6
It’s not every praise that is acceptable to God.
God accepts praises that comes from a joyful heart.
“Because thou servedst not the LORD thy God with joyfulness, and with gladness of heart…;
Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies…“
