          2009 Prayer Goal: “Fulfilling His Word”

Dear Members and Friends,
I pray that this year brings each of you on the winning side of Christ. We
have been given power over the enemy, according to Luke 10:19.

In the year of 2009, I pray that you will let God work in your heart and that
you will wax strong in the things of God. I pray that you receive the
concept that the Kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but it is a matter of
God's power as He admonishes Christians to "seek first the Kingdom of
God," as stated in Matthew 6:33. Many will suffer if they do not learn how
to spiritually fight. "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against
principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this world,
against spiritual wickedness in high places," Ephesians 6:12. I pray through
Christ Jesus that we stand together in the Word steadfast and unshakeable,
enduring forever and in the power of God that is able to deliver each of us
out of any bondage.

As we journey through the season of Divine Judgment and Justice, let us
believe the promises of El Shaddai, the God of more than enough, as we
approach the throne of grace with confidence so that we may receive mercy
and find grace and hope in our time of need (Hebrews 4:16).

         A Prayer of Agreement: “Agree with Me”
Heavenly Father, I praise you and thank you that you are plenteous in
mercy and that you are always ready to show yourself strong on our behalf.

I declare that I am an overcomer through Jesus (John 16:23).

I declare that I am coming out of my storms, my wilderness situation,
because I have the mind of Christ (I Corinthians 2:16).

I decree I am strong in the Lord and in the power of His might (Ephesians
6:10).

Lord, allow Favor to be upon each of our lives as the Hedge of Protection is
released over our lives. Lord, build a Wall of Fire round about Living
Waters church property, our homes, and families. Lord, make it impossible
for the anything of the enemy to come against us.

In Jesus Name. Amen.

Co-Labourer For Christ,

I. Pray for Living Waters Members, Covenant Members
   and Friends
As we stand in the gap for Living Waters Church Members, Covenant
Members, Family and Friends, we ask the Holy Spirit to draw each into a
deeper level in Christ as He brings us into a deeper intercession for this Body
of Christ.

Psalms 57:1-3, "Be merciful to me, O God be merciful to me! For my soul
trusts in You; and in the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge until
these calamities have passed by. I will cry out to the God Most High, to God
who performs all things for me. He shall ascend from Heaven and save me;
He reproaches the one who would swallow me up. God shall send forth His
mercy and His truth."

   A. Pray and believe no weapon that is formed against our members shall
      prosper and that any tongue that rises against Living Waters members
      in judgment shall be shown to be in the wrong.

   B. Pray that members shall prosper in Christ, spiritually, physically, and
      financially.

   C. Pray that each member be deposited into the hand and care of God as
      we entrust God to strengthen, to gird up, to protect and to care for each
      member.

   D. Pray that each member will become aware of their "purpose" and God's
      plan for their lives.

   E. Pray that each member walk in God's authority as He rules and reigns in
      our ministry, home, family, and jobs.

II. Pray for Living Waters Ministries
Heavenly Father, You are able to do abundantly over and above all that we can ask
or even think. We release each, Church Officer, Church Ministry, and Auxiliary into
Your Hand and pray that You release wisdom, understanding, and knowledge for
Kingdom Building, as You strengthen each ministry by Your Spirit.
   A. Pray that we as a congregation will be a light as we evangelize and win souls.
      Pray also that the souls we win will follow us into Living Waters.
   B. Pray 2 Chronicles 7:14 upon our church, "If my people, which are called by
      my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn
      from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their
      sin, and will heal their land." Ask that His Kingdom come and His will
      FINALLY be done in our church ministries.
   C. Call Members and Finances into Living Waters from the territories of the
      North, South, East, and West. Decree and speak to the power and
      principalities in the air who work in the people of disobedience. Release
      Isaiah 43:5-7, "...I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the
      west; I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back: bring
      my sons from far, and my daughters from the ends of the earth; Even every
      one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have
      formed him; yea, I have made him."
   D. Pray that Favor and Justice be upon each ministry. Ask God to reveal His
      Divine Guidance and Counsel over each ministry: Stewards, Trustees,
      Stewardess, Class Leaders, Superintendent, Directors of Ministries, and Head
      of Auxiliaries.
   E. Pray that God will open our eyes to see the seriousness of the church that He
      has released unto us. Pray that He release His Power in FULL FORCE
      through each minister and lay leader. Pray that each vessel be a pure channel
      through which God's Word can flow unlimited and unhindered.
   F. Pray that our Lord will grant an overriding purpose for each ministry and that
       He take away any desire for anyone to lead for fleshly reasons such as self-
       display or human applause.



                                                                                         Page 5

      authority and bring them to salvation. “For as the earth bringeth forth
      her bud, and as the garden causeth the things that are sown in it to

      spring forth before all the nations.” (Isaiah 61:11)

      trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and
      my refuge, my savior; thou savest me from violence. I will call on the
      LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine

     forth labourers into his harvest.” (Matthew 9:38)

     settle upon their lives. Pray that God give them hearts to stand in the
     midst of their suffering. Bind up the spirit of distress away from their
     lives and release peace and joy into their lives. “But when he saw the
     multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they
     fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no
     shepherd.” (Matthew 9:36)

  D. Pray for our Military Service men and women on Foreign Soil fighting
     the war on terrorism. Do not forget that the Blood of our Lord was also

     earthquakes along with the victims that are often involved.
