Today we will be dealing with covenant prayers for Blessing. The book of Proverbs chapter 10:22 The blessing of the LORD makes one rich, And He adds no sorrow with it. When it comes to getting blessed, there are so many sources a man can get a blessing from, but the blessings of the Lord is the best. You may have heard of people going to the shrines to beg for a child. People go to the river to beg for children. People go to different places to beg for things. They have forgotten that the devil doesn’t give anything freely. Everything from the devil comes with a price.
However, the blessings of the Lord make riches and add no sorrow. The end of a man blessed by the Lord is filled with joy and happiness. One can’t say the same for a man that is blessed by the devil. The problem with many people is short-sightedness. Many of us can’t see beyond our present predicament, and that’s what gives the devil an edge over us. Jabez recognises that only God can bless him and turn his story around for good. 1 chronicle 4:9 Now Jabez was more honourable than his brothers, and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, “Because I bore him in pain.”And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, “Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!” So God granted him what he requested.
When we pray for blessing, we need to wait patiently for God to manifest the blessing. The problem we have is the inability to wait on the Lord due to our short-sightedness. We want the blessings to come almost immediately after we pray for them. Covenant prayers for blessing will have us praying for the manifestation of God’s blessing. He has promised to bless us richly and abundantly. When blessing comes, there is a provision of the things we lack. And Philippians 4:19 say, And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. This is the promise of God to supply all our needs according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus. This means no more lack. We will begin to live a life of abundant wealth, riches and good health.
- Lord Jesus, I thank you for another beautiful day, another beautiful week. May your name be exalted in the name of Jesus.
- Lord, I pray that you shall bless me with peace of mind over everything that you have committed to my hands. I ask that your grace shall keep me, you will cause your face to smile on be and you will be gracious unto me today in the name of Jesus.
- Father Lord, for it has been written, the expectations of the righteous shall not be caught short. I ask that by your grace, you will grant me my heart desires, and you will make your plans over my life come to fulfilment in the name of Jesus. I pray for a speedy manifestation of your blessings over my life in the name of Jesus.
- Father Lord, I pray that you shall be gracious to me. I pray that you will cause your face to shine upon me. It has been written; if the way of a man pleases God, He will cause him to find favour in the sight of men. I ask that you will let me find favour in the sight of men. When I go forward, let me be favoured. In all my ways, I pray that your favour and blessings shall not elude me in the name of Jesus.
- Father Lord, I pray that you shall let me experience the pure love of Christ. I pray that you will fill me with the fullness of life in joy and happiness. I ask by the authority of heaven; you will bless my life with the power that comes from God.
- Father Lord, for it has been written, God will supply all my needs according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus. From today, I will not lack any good thing in the name of Jesus. I pray for provision; I pray for open heaven upon my life in the name of Jesus.
- Lord, I pray that Christ shall find an expression through me, and He shall make my house His home. I pray that you shall bless my home with joy and happiness. I pray that you shall bless us with laughter, peace of mind and exceeding love. I pray that you shall resist the enemy for our sake and bless us with the protection of the Holy Spirit.
- Lord, the scripture says May the Lord of peace Himself give you peace at all times and in every way. I start my day with the blessings of the father. I activate this day by the covenant blessing of God Almighty.
- Lord, I ask that you will bless my life with fruitfulness. In every area of my life that is disrupted with barrenness, I pray that you shall make it fruitful in the name of Jesus.
- Father, I pray that you shall bless me with the gift of the Holy Spirit. The scripture says if the power of him that raised Christ from the dead dwells in you, it will quicken your mortal body. I ask for the blessing of the holy ghost. For it has been written, in the end, I shall pour out my Spirit on all flesh, your sons and daughters shall prophesy, your young men shall see a vision and your old men shall dream dreams. I ask for the manifestation of these blessings today in the name of Jesus.
- Lord, the scripture says if any man lacks wisdom, let him ask from God that gives liberally without blemish. Father, I pray that you bless me with wisdom, knowledge and understanding from above. I ask that you bless my children with the spirit of wisdom. The knowledge that will make them excel beyond their peers, I ask that you bless them with it in the name of Jesus.
