"New Year's Day Prayer" Vanese Buchanan


If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

Lord we come together as the body of Christ humble ourselves before Your Majesty, asking you to forgive us for the sins we have blatantly committed against you and also for the sins we have unknowingly committed against you.  Lord we repent as a body for not reading your Word and praying more.  Forgive us for not giving you the rightful position as number 1 in our lives.  We repent for loving the gift more than the giver.  We also repent for loving the Spirit of mammon more than we love your people.  Please forgive us Lord for our shortcomings.  We also thank you Lord for your forgiveness.  Thank you that your mercy and grace are refreshed and renewed each day.

Thank You Lord that we can come into Your Presence with Thanksgiving and praise for your Splendor.  We praise you for your might. You are the Almighty, the rose of Sharon, the lily of the valley.  You are the Alpha and the Omega. You are the beginning and the End. You are a might battle ax.  Lord we Honor You.  We lift Your Holy Name on High.  You are the great I AM. Thank you that we can always call upon your name God and your ear is always poised to hear. Thank You that you are a God that doesn't slumber nor sleep.

Lord as we enter this new season, enable your servants to speak Your Word with great boldness.  Bring your body into alignment and 1 accord with Your will. Give us the mind & Spirit of Christ. Let not our will be done, but Your will be done.  Lord bring Your corporate body into One accord with Your perfect will.  Increase our passion for the things of God in 2017. Help us Father to lay down everything that displeases you. Don't allow us to be the same as we have been in times past.

Help us to leave behind in 2016 anything that comes against Your Sovereignty. Lord we are leaving behind unfaithfulness, we are leaving behind pride and judgmentalness. We are leaving behind cold love and a victim mentality.  Your precious Word says that we are more than conquerors and that you have given us the power to trample on the heads of serpents.

Because of your promises Lord and Your character of being a man that never lies, we claim what is rightfully ours according to Your Holy Word. We proclaim salvation for our entire households, we claim health in Jesus Name.  Healing is the children's bread and Jesus took 39 stripes across his back so that we may be healed. We claim prosperity in America, prosperity in the House of the Lord and in all our individual houses.  Lord pour out a blessing on Bishop and his household that he will not have room to receive it.  Provide this great servant of the Lord great times of rest and refreshing.  Continue to raise up the leadership in this House to advance the kingdom for Your Name's sake.

Be Blessed,
