CHARISMA DAILY DEVOTIONAL
SUNDAY 28TH JUNE 2020
SHAKE IT OFF
Scriptural Reading: Act. 28:1-6
St Paul, after a shipwreck, found himself on an island called Malta. The people were kind to the victims of the wreck; they made the fire for them because of the cold and rain. While they were trying to ease off their ugly experiences by warming themselves around the fire they prepared, a snake driven out by heat from the fire fastened itself around Paul's hand. That did not make him doubt God's presence; instead, he shook off the viper, being confident in God's promise to save him in times of danger.
Do not allow the attitude of unbelievers to tamper with your trust in God for deliverance from all your troubles. Paul's companions expected him to swell or fall and die but he did not. Identify the vipers you need to shake off, vipers of failure, of discouragement and of disappointments. Take courage and shake them off because the Holy One of Jacob is with you.
Do you pay more attention to what people say or to what God has says?

DAILY PROPHETIC PRAYERS
Oh Lord God of power and might we praise and thank you for your goodness and mercy in my life. I acknowledge that you are the only one true God and the Almighty who can do all things, who knows all things and who is everywhere at the same time.
I beseech you, Lord, to show me your mercy and forgiveness, I have sinned against you through my thoughts, words, and actions. Through your sacrificial death on the cross, I receive mercy and boldness to approach your throne of grace.
Let the precious blood of Jesus wash me and make me whiter than snow. Heal me oh Lord by your wounds that I may be restored.
I receive your Grace to rise above every limitation.
I receive your Grace to move from Glory to Glory. I proclaim my total freedom in the mighty name of Jesus.
I shall testify the goodness of God in the land of the living in the most powerful name of Jesus.
I shall not die but live to declare the goodness of God I shall not be put to shame for the Lord is by my side. I shall glorify the Lord all the days of my life.
PRAYER TO ST MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL AGAINST THE FORCES BEHIND COVID - 19.
Holy Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebukes him, we humbly pray, and do you, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who wander through the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
WE PRAY WITH ST JUDE THE PATRON OF DIFFICULT CASES AGAINST THE SPREAD OF CORONA VIRUS
O most holy apostle, Saint Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the Church honoureth and invoketh thee universally, as the patron of hopeless cases, and things almost despaired of.
Pray for me, who am so miserable. Make use, I implore thee, of that particular privilege accorded to thee, to bring visible and speedy help where help was almost despaired of.
Come to mine assistance in this great need, that I may receive the consolation and succour of Heaven in all my necessities, tribulations, and sufferings, particularly...
(insert your prayer request here, especially the menace of COVID - 19 Pandemic)
...and that I may praise God with thee and all the elect throughout eternity.
I promise thee, O blessed Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favour, to always honour thee as my special and powerful patron, and to gratefully encourage devotion to thee. Amen.
