IN  THE  SKIES

CLOUDS
He who observes the wind will not sow.
And he who regards the clouds will not reap. 
Ecclesiastes 11:4 NKJV

 Father,
whenever we see a cloud,
may we be reminded to steady our hearts,
refusing to look at our circumstances
so that we remain fully focused on You
and the work that remains to be done
until You return.

Every cloud is a flag
to your faithfulness.
Psalm 57:10 MSG

May we sow at all times and in all places
that You may reap a harvest that honors You
and brings You great joy...
You once made Your Presence known to Your people
in a cloud by day
and fire by night.
Lead us. Lead our hearts.
And may we faithfully follow
wherever You choose to lead.

DARKNESS
   

Father,
I pray that our children and their friends
walk faithfully as children of the Light
and that they seek and comprehend
all that You want them to understand.
May they have no fellowship with darkness
but rather live lives that faithfully and obediently
honor You (Eph. 5)…
May we not allow the sun to go down upon our anger
giving the devil a powerful place
in our hearts and in our homes (Eph. 4:26)…
Father, light our way through all darkness;
clearly reveal the paths You desire us to take…

DAY
   Father God,
we plead for vast numbers of Christians
to offer themselves willingly
as vigilant warriors of worship
and intercession,
not ever holding their peace
but crying out day and night for
the people of every nation
and for the expansion of Your Kingdom
until Your Work and Your Will
are completely fulfilled
upon the earth (Is. 62:6-7)…

HEAVENS
O Lord our God,
the majesty and glory of your name
fills all the earth
and overflows the heavens.
You have taught the little children
to praise You perfectly.
May their example
shame and silence Your enemies!
Psalm 8:1-2 TLB    

MOON
You have taught children and infants to tell of your strength, silencing your enemies and all who oppose you. When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers - the moon and the stars you set in place - what are mere mortals that you should think about them, human beings that you should care for them?
Psalm 8:2-4 NLT

Father God, how we long for our spiritual seed and spiritual children to be multiplied as the stars of the heavens and sands of the seas that cannot be humanly measured, overthrowing the powers of every spirit of darkness that rise against them (Gen. 22:17).
And may our families, friends, church, and all who love You desire the wisdom of Daniel shining like the brightness of the heavens, leading vast innumerable multitudes to You (Dan. 12:3).

or do our Bible study when in Montgomery.
This is also where the Civil War,
Civil Rights,
and Civil Liberties issues were ignited.

NIGHT SKIES
In the beginning God created...
Genesis 1:1 NIV
~~~
He has made everything beautiful in its time.
Also He has put eternity in their hearts,
except that no one can find out
the work that God does
from beginning to end.
Ecclesiastes 3:11 NKJV

​​Father God,
please open the eyes of scientists and students –
of people everywhere –
that they may recognize You as Creator
and fall in reverent wonder.
May Your Truth be revealed in exciting new ways…
    May our prayers resonate throughout the world
and throughout the heavens
before the Throne of God – 
melting hearts, crushing demonic strongholds, 
and pressing back the gates of Hell, 
setting captives free. 
May we be world-changers and history-makers...

RAINBOW
The rainbow is symbolic of Hope beyond Judgment. When violence and immorality once saturated the earth, God destroyed all that was living with a flood, saving only Noah and his family, with male and female animals.
Darkness is advancing to saturate the earth once again. But in the final Judgment, the Bible, news, and science describe a catastrophic destruction of the earth by fire (2 Pet. 3:10). But that’s okay because we will survive. Though we face death, we will live with God in a Kingdom that cannot be shaken or destroyed. It’s going to be wonderful!

Father,
help us to keep our thoughts on things above,
not on earth below.
The things of this earth are rapidly passing away,
but we will live and love and laugh in Your holy Presence
FOREVER!!!

Do I hear a “Hallelujah! AMEN!”?

SHADOW
Even when I walk
through the valley
of the shadow of death,
how can I fear?
You’re with me – embracing me,
guarding and guiding me (Ps. 23:4)…

The heavens proclaim
the glory of God.
The skies display
his craftsmanship.
Psalm 19:1 NLT

SKY
“For My thoughts are not
your thoughts,
and My ways are not
your ways,”
says the Lord.
“For as the heavens are higher
than the earth,
so are My ways higher
than your ways,
and My thoughts than
Your thoughts.”
Isaiah 55:8-9 NLV

There’s so much work remaining to be done.
May the church stop watching the skies and focus on the fields, diligently laboring for the Harvest of our God...
~~~
When Christ returns, no one will miss it...
~~~
For as the lightning
comes from the east
and flashes to the west,
so also will the coming
of the Son of Man be.
​Matthew 24:27 NKJV

Jesus said,
“The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few.
Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore,
to send out workers into his harvest field.
Go! I am sending you out"...
Luke 10:1-3 NIV

STARS   
As a family, step outside to view the night skies and pray star inspiration prayers. Pray for astronomers, astronauts, those studying sciences from secular perspectives, those attempting to twist Truth - that God stagger their imaginations with His greatness, speaking to them day and night, even as they sleep. May they dream dreams and see visions... For protection of impressionable minds from every seed of deception... For those who know God - that He speak His secrets - astounding, secular shattering evidence - and grant them the excellent Wisdom and influence of Daniel, leading vast, innumerable multitudes to righteousness.

Those who are wise will shine
like the brightness of the heavens,
and those who lead many to righteousness,

like the stars for ever and ever.
Daniel 12:3 NIV

STARS   
 When read in context, this verse yields much more significance, especially in these days that we live in. As this realm grows darker, we're called to shine brighter ~ and we will bear that distinction as dynamite in a dark room, it cannot be ignored. Set the world on fire – an explosion of passion for God, His Word, His Will, His Wisdom, the people of this world, and holiness. 
    
This is our appointed time!

May our families, friends, and all who love God desire Daniel 12:3 wisdom, desiring to shine ever more brightly as darkness presses in, leading vast multitudes to righteousness.
Father, please grant us excellent wisdom in our interactions with other Christians, as well as those who do not yet know You.
Help us to respond to difficult questions.
Help us to respond to outbursts of wrath.
Help us to firmly control our own frustrations and angers that we might walk in a manner that is pleasing to You.

​​​Grant us excellent wisdom within Your Word, wisdom in its personal application, and wisdom in guiding others to apply it to their lives.
May our hearts and minds enjoy perfect protection from every seed of deception.
May Truth be firmly established deep within us that we may wisely and effectively respond to the issues and errors of this present age, offering accurate information that will move the hearts and minds of others into a greater understanding of You and Your Will for their lives.
We thank You now for the abundance of wisdom You have already begun to lavish upon us. With great confidence we believe it will overflow - spilling out in a dry and thirsty land, watering the seeds of faith that have been planted that much fruit may result, all for Your glory (James 1).

Father, how I long for our level of obedience to be so great that our families are able to claim the blessing of Abraham – that You multiply our spiritual seed as the stars of the heavens and as the sand on the seashore; and that our children and grandchildren possess the gates of our spiritual enemies – not seeking any earthly or eternal reward…
May we all seek Your fame and glory and the advancement of Your Kingdom within the hearts of all humanity (Gen. 22:17)…

Discuss the Daniel 12:3 prayer inspiration with your children. Point out stars in the sky, stars on Christmas trees, stars on clothing, stars on billboards… You’ll begin to see them everywhere, and they will inspire you all to pray more frequently and fervently. Teach them to pray for their friends, teachers, church, government officials, actors, actresses, musicians… Through the power of prayer, they will be fulfilling Daniel 12:3 as they lead vast, innumerable multitudes to righteousness.

The unfolding of Your words
gives light;
it gives understanding to the simple.
Psalm 119:130 NIV

​​So live as people of light!
For this light within you
produces only what is good and right and true. Carefully determine what pleases the Lord.
Ephesians 5:8-10 NLT

For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
The Lord gives grace and glory;
No good thing does He withhold
from those who walk uprightly.
Psalm 84:11 NASB

May Your holy Light
penetrate the hearts
of all who walk in darkness…  

From the rising of the sun
to the place where it sets,
may Your Name
be eternally praised (Ps. 133:3)!

SUN
Father,
light our way through this present darkness;
clearly reveal the paths You desire us to take…

​​Thank You for encouraging us as You share the times and the seasons and the reasons that the sun will become dark and the moon appear as blood before the great and awesome Day of the LORD (Joel 2:31).    

May people be awakened
by an unrelenting desire to know You
as their Father, Savior, Friend...

TWILIGHT
May we have no alliance
with the works of darkness,
living always as children of light
(1 Thess. 5:5)… 

And there will be signs in the sun,
in the moon,
and in the stars;
and on the earth

distress of nations,
with perplexity,

the sea and the waves roaring;
men’s hearts failing them

from fear and the expectation
of those things which are coming
on the earth,
for the powers of the heavens

will be shaken.
Then...

(read it for yourself!)
Luke 21:25-26 NKJV

But we’re part of the overall plan!
Jesus said,
 
“Go ye therefore, and teach
all nations,
baptizing them
in the name of the Father,
and of the Son,
and of the Holy Ghost:
Teaching them to observe all things
whatsoever I have commanded you:
and, lo, I am with you always,
even unto the end of the world.”
Amen.
Matthew 28:19-20 KJV

So let's do this!
For our King and His Kingdom -
every breath for His honor
and glory and praise!
