May the Lord bless and keep you

by Rev Bassey Ekong

1 Kings 18:41 And Elijah said unto Ahab, Get thee up, eat and drink; for there is a sound of abundance of rain. Beloved, get up and eat. Rejoice and be happy. It’s a new month. The Lord’s favour is upon you.

  As we continue the journey of this year and by the goodness of the Lord, we experience the blessing of new months. Through the goodness of the Lord expressed to us in many dimensions, we must receive His goodness with grateful hearts, in Jesus’ name.

Every new day comes with its peculiar challenges. God is Faithful; He gave us a great month last month, April. We must be cognizance of the fact that we’re not better than those we have survived in April. It’s by the grace of God’s goodness through Jesus Christ, that we are spared to greet this new month. Therefore, we must welcome the month with thankfulness and gratitude to the giver of life, in Jesus’ name.

This month I pray for you. Every negative declaration concerning you and your household shall be nullified and mercy will speak for you in high places.  Your unrealized great dreams will come into remembrance and receive divine approval for their manifestation, in Jesus’ name.

 I pray that all previous physical or spiritual losses shall be restored and you and your seeds will receive favour from the four winds of the earth and be established spiritually and physically, in Jesus’ mighty name. The Lord will visit you, make you a phenomenon in a way that the memory will outlive you.

May every wall of limitation built around you and your family crumble, collapse and be dismantled. May the siege over your life and family come to an end and be permanently removed, in Jesus’ name.  I decree that every demonic guard keeping watch over the progress of your life shall go blind and be impotent, in Jesus’ name.

I pray that any evil arrow that has been programmed against you and your family in this month and the remaining days of this year shall backfire and the wicked stumble and fall for your sake, in Jesus’ mighty name. All those who are expecting you to suffer losses shall be disappointed, exposed and be disgraced.

Let your enemies waiting to hear your cry of agony, regret, or suffering of any kind be disappointed. Anyone wishing that this month should turn to your month of mourning will join in your celebration, even to their surprise and disgrace, in Jesus’ mighty name.

All the days of this month shall bring pleasant surprises exactly as the days you have been longing and waiting for in Jesus’ mighty name. Happy month of May and happy Saturday, a weekend to remember. The Lord bless you, keep you and shine His holy countenance upon you and your loved ones, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. Amen. Have a stress-free Weekend, in the mighty name of Jesus. Note: You’ll be blessed through this year. Believe it and claim it, in Jesus’ name.

Today’s reading: 1 Kings 10-11; Luke 21:20-38

The Lord Bless You and Keep You.
