In the name of Jesus,
I confess that I walk by faith and not by sight. I am strong and mature in my faith and I practice it daily. I hear God clearly and I continually speak His Word over my life. I confess that I am growing spiritually and I walk in the supernatural life. Signs, wonders, and miracles are manifested through my life and I attract others to Christ.

My God supplies all of my needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. By His stripes, I am healed and I walk in divine health. The favor of God is on my life and everything that I put my hands unto is blessed. The blessing of God is on my life and it causes me to be fruitful and to multiply.

In Jesus’ name. Amen.
In the name of Jesus, I declare by faith that I walk in divine favor. I have preferential treatment, supernatural increase, supernatural restoration, increased assets, great victories, recognition and prominence, and policies and rules are changed in my favor.
I command favor to show up now and in my future. Handfuls of favor are being dropped for me right now! Every endeavor, every meeting, every connection, every opportunity of this month is already blessed. Doors are now open for me that men say are impossible to open. I walk in the unprecedented favor of God. No obstacle can stop me. No statistic can hold me back. I am the object of God’s affection. I increase in influence and favor with God and with men.
I am fully resourced to fulfill everything that God has called me to do.
In Jesus name.

They are set apart and sanctified unto You. They are not conformed to this world, but they are transformed by the renewing of their minds through the Word of God. They overcome the world, their flesh, and the devil! They have no desire for worldly music, premarital sex, adultery, pornography, or any form of perversion. They manage the thoughts of their minds, and keep their bodies under control and sexually pure. They have no desire for illicit drugs, smoking or alcohol.

CONFESSION FOR HEALING
I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. My righteousness came by faith in the finished work of Jesus. My righteousness speaks and declares that I am the temple of the Holy Spirit and no unclean thing shall dwell in me. I am healed. I was healed by the stripes of Jesus. Jesus has already taken my infirmities and bore my sickness. Since Jesus took and bore them, I need not bare them. I have been healed since I was saved. My healing is eternal. Nothing can change that.
I am not the sick trying to be healed. I am the healed resisting symptoms of infirmity and disease. I have been bought with a price. I will therefore glorify God in my body. God sent His word and healed me and delivered me from all afflictions. His Word is medicine and healing to all my flesh. The anointing of the Holy Spirit has also been sent to heal every part of my being, emotional and physical. The same Holy Spirit who raised Jesus from the dead quickens my mortal body. No plague will come hear my dwelling because I abide under the shadow of the Almighty. Jehovah Raphe is my covenant healer and with the stripes of Jesus I was and am healed.

PRAYER FOR THE LOCAL LEADERSHIP
Father, in Jesus’ name, we give thanks for the City of Birmingham and all the surrounding cities. We hold up in prayer before You those people who are seeking positions of authority in our cities.
We pray that the Spirit of the Lord rests upon them. We believe that skillful and godly wisdom has entered into the heart of everyone whom you have appointed to lead us – and that knowledge is pleasant to them.

We pray that our leaders will be people of integrity who are obedient to your Word so that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

We confess that every voter will seek your face concerning the candidate that you have chosen to lead our city.
It is written in Your Word that the heart of the king is in the hand of the Lord, and you turn it whichever way You desire. We believe that hearts of our leaders are in Your hand and that their decisions are divinely directed by You, Lord.
Lord, keep this city under your care. We declare that Jesus is Lord over the City of Birmingham.

Set every marriage free from past hurts, negative emotions, and unrealistic expectations of each other. Our marriages are united in the bonds of friendship, commitment, generosity, and understanding. Love is displayed in full expression, and husbands and wives are knit together in Truth.
We believe that You are working in our married couples that which is pleasing in Your sight.

In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
I boldly confess that compassion flows through me like a river! Condemnation and judgment have no place in my life, in my thinking or in the way I relate to other people. I am filled with the love of God, and I allow that love to touch others who are near me.
The bowels of my heart release the compassion of Jesus Christ, touching the lives of people caught in the deception of sin and darkness and setting them free in Jesus’ Name!
Father, your Word says you will give seed to the sower in II Corinthians 9:10. I desire $2000 seed to give to my church toward debt cancellation. I believe I receive it now. Go ministering spirits, bring my money in Jesus' name.
Father, I declare that I am an instrument of your love. I see each circumstance in my life as an opportunity to grow in your love. I see my environment as a place to grow in your love.
I take the God-kind of love to other people...
When I am tempted to become irritated, I declare that I am patient.
When I am tempted to become moody, I declare that I am kind.

When I am tempted to become boastful or proud, I declare that I will be careful to give You all the glory.
When I am tempted to be rude or mean, I declare that I am gentle.
When I am tempted to take offense and become angry, I declare that I choose to let go and offer the gift of forgiveness.
When I am tempted to become bitter, I declare that my heart I declare that I take no pleasure in criticizing others, but I choose to see the good in others, even as You do.
When I am tempted to concentrate on the faults and failures of others, I declare that I instead focus on and praise their accomplishments.
I declare that I am loyal to those You give me to love, to lead and to serve.
I am a speaking spirit. My words are spirit and they are life. The Bible says “Let the Redeemed of the Lord say so.” So, it’s not enough for me to just think the best. It’s not enough for me to just believe the best. It can only be so if I say it. I can only give life to my faith when I speak it out of my mouth. If I want to go to another level, I must say so. If I want a supernatural year in 2016, I must say so. If I want to accomplish my dreams, I must say so.
The Bible says that death and life are in the power of my tongue. So I choose this day to speak life to my life. I choose to speak life to my future. I choose to speak life to my soul. I choose to speak life to my body. Father, Your Word says to ask for rain in the season of rain. So today I ask for unprecedented favor. Today, I ask you to rain down your blessings. Rain down your anointing. Rain down increase. Rain down promotion. Rain down blessing.
Today is the day that the Lord has made. I choose to rejoice and I will be glad in it. Happiness is a choice. So I choose today to be happy. I choose to have a positive day. Today will be a great day. This will be a great week. Today I call in favor. Today I call in increase. Today I call in good breaks. God’s directing my steps. God is ordering my paths. He causes me to be at the right place at the right time. Whatever I put my hands to prospers and succeeds. The favor of God brings me into divine opportunities. The favor of God brings me increase and promotion. My best days are in front of me. I hold fast to my confession of faith, for God is faithful who promised. I choose to be in agreement with God. In Jesus Name.
Father God, I declare that I am a good steward and that I glorify You in my role as a parent. I model the life of a godly parent before my children. I model love, character and integrity at all times. I am faithful to pray for my children and with the help of the Holy Spirit, I always do my best to mentor and instruct them in the truth and principles of God’s Word. I am sensitive to their needs. I am loving to them. Gentleness is in my touch. Kindness is on my tongue and mercy and compassion is in my hearing.
I don’t criticize, complain or talk negatively to or about my children. I speak only good things over them, those things that will edify and build them up. I let no corrupt communication proceed from my mouth. I never laugh at their mistakes or resort to shame and ridicule as punishment. I see and celebrate the good things they do. My mouth is filled with sound instruction and encouragement. I am disciplined and remain sober during times of stress and do no become frustrated or lose my temper.
If I do something that is wrong or offensive, I ask for forgiveness and I am quick to make it right. When faced with the need to discipline my children, I will do so without anger.
I will reference God’s Word as their standard of conduct. I never rob my children of the opportunity to be themselves. With the help of the Holy Spirit, I understand my children, listen to them, set boundaries for them yet encourage them to explore. I see the gifts that you have placed in them and I nurture those gifts! I foster an environment of learning.Thank You for the gift of my children. In Jesus Name. Amen!
Father, I now pray for every Black man and youth in this nation. I cancel every strategy and operation designated to destroy his manhood, his success, his family life, his self-esteem, his reputation, his financial, intellectual and social advancement; his business success, prosperity, achievements, and his legacy; and every other area targeted to keep him oppressed, controlled, dishonored, dominated, and beneath his potential. Satan, you are bound, and have no authority to enslave him. The Son has made him free, and he is free indeed. Get out of his affairs in Jesus’ Name. Angels, go, bring to him everything that was given to him before the foundation of the world. Father, cause our Black men and youth to be transformed by the renewing of their minds, that they may all be saved and Spirit-filled, see their status in Christ, and never again settle for anything less than their inheritance provides, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Heavenly Father, we, Your people in the Body of Christ in this nation, humbly come before You, acknowledging our sin of allowing this nation to forget You. Since the birth of this nation, the Church has been disgracefully silent as wicked men boldly defied Your Word and Your laws, and have established their own righteousness and set up their own gods. They have dishonored You with their sin, and we have dishonored You, by refusing to uphold Your standards of righteousness and truth. Forgive us Lord. We repent of our sins, and we thank You that You are faithful and just to forgive us of our sins, and cleanse us of all unrighteousness.
Father, we ask You to bless and heal our land. We pray for this nation, that all will be saved, baptized in Jesus’ Name and filled with the Holy Spirit, and will humbly and whole-heartedly serve You; winning souls, making disciples, and establishing your Kingdom in all the earth. We pray that we as a nation shall have no other gods before You; that we will not bow down ourselves before any idol or image; that we shall not take Your Name in vain; that we will keep Your Sabbath day holy; that we would honor our father and mother; that we shall not kill, commit adultery, steal, or bear false witness against our neighbor; that we will not covet anything that is our neighbors; and that the fear of the Lord would be in all the inhabitants of this nation.
We pray that as a nation, we will hide Your Word in our hearts, that we might not sign against thee; that we would walk by faith and not be sight; that we would love You with all our heart, soul, mind and strength, and our neighbor as ourselves; that we would diligently obey Your voice, and cleave to You; for You are our life and the length of our days, and Father, without You, we can do nothing. Grant our request, according to II Chronicles 7:14, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
