Prayer: God of Mercy, thank you for protecting us. Thank you for shining the spotlight of Your Holy Spirit into our lives. I pray that Your holy angels are released to pour buckets of the blood of Jesus over our nation. Let a tsunami of your light and glory overtake our communities, states, and nation. I pray that mighty warrior angels with spears at their wing tips and double-edged swords blazing with Holy Ghost fire will be loosed to fight against wickedness on behalf of Your people. Let mighty holy whirlwinds and tornadoes rip through every satanic headquarters. Father let lightning shoot down Your mighty right arm and electrocute every demon with an assignment against our lives today. In the mighty name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen. 

Scripture: So Moses stretched out his hand toward heaven, and there was thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days. They did not see one another; nor did anyone rise from his place for three days. But all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings. Exodus 10:22-23 NKJV

Jesus specializes in doing the impossible. No one is more powerful than Jesus. No one has more wisdom than Jesus. This day I decree and declare that you are walking in your God-given authority. Two of my favorite scriptures come from Luke and Matthew: “Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you” (Luke 10:19 NKJV).  “Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven” (Matthew 18:18). As you rise this day, before you begin to think of what needs to be done in the classroom, take control, and command the morning to obey the Will of God. Rise giving thanks for a new day and declaring that the angels God has assigned to you bring in your blessings (Psalm 91:11).

I encourage you to stand on His Word and believe what He says in Psalm 91 “No evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling” (v.10). When the plagues were destroying Egypt there was light in Goshen where the Hebrews, God’s people, lived. He really does take care of us even among chaos. God is good all the time.
