YOUR GOD WILL BE FAITHFUL TO YOU
Scriptural Reading: Psalm 98:1-9
A friend once told me a story; he said “don't fight with anyone whose backing comes from heaven” (God). He or she might not have the resources - the finances, the physical strength, or connections in society but when the fight begins, terrible things will begin to befall the adversary of that child of God. The reason is that God will be faithful to his own. In the scriptures, God said obstacles as great as mountains (various challenges) will fall before you but he will see you through them all (Psalm 34: 19).
Pharaoh of Egypt, in the time of Moses, was one of such mountains but he fell; Haman in the time of Esther and Mordecai was one of such mountains but he fell. I may not know or understand fully the magnitude of the mountains/obstacles standing before you but I do know that God can neither change nor forsake his people. Your battles are God's own and your challenges are his. Simply put your trust in him and be committed to a life of prayers and devotion and see miracles happen in your life.
Have I experienced the faithfulness of God?

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 totally 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 of 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 succor 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.
