As we come to a close of this remarkable year of 2015, I come under assignment to pronounce a 2015 Benediction that will help translate us over the threshold of 2016. A benediction which is a prayer that asks for God’s blessing or an expression to promote goodness or well-being.
“God, we honor You, bless Your name, worship You our Lord, Master and forever reigning King. You are an awesome God, You are great and greatly to be praised. We exalt You Father and we say thank You for who You are and all that You have done in our lives in 2015. We thank You for Your love, Your favor, Your provision, Your forgiveness, Your protection, and for Your perfect plan for each of us. We thank You for choosing us for such a time as this to be Your eyes, ears, hands, feet and examples of Your love, light, and life in this earth.
We surrender our will and say unto You according to Luke 1:38 (AMP), ‘Behold, I am the servant of the Lord; may it be done to me according to your word.’ We say use us God to fulfill Your purpose and destiny in this earth. Let Your kingdom come, let Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. We thank You that we are seated with You and that we reign with You. We thank You that we are equipped to do all that You have purposed for us to accomplish for Your kingdom’s sake. We decree that there are no closed doors that You have commanded for us to walk through, for every door that You open no man can shut. We decree that our faith, hearts, and minds are now enlarged to take possession of what You have already laid up for us in heavenly places. We put a demand on the very resources within our heavenly bank accounts set aside by You for Your plan for our lives and the desires of our hearts.
We thank You that our way is made easy and straight and with long life we are satisfied, we are always victorious and the gates of hell shall not prevail against Your church. We take possession of every place and every sphere of influence that You have sent us to. For every place the soles of our feet tread You have given it to us and we establish Your kingdom everywhere we go so that You will be lifted up and draw all men unto Yourself. We surrender so that You can be exalted in all that we say and do. Everything that you have purposed for us to accomplish in 2016 is done now in Jesus’ name. We come against and bind every hex, curse, plot, plan and assignment of the enemy for no weapon formed against us shall prosper.
Let every believer arise unto and walk in the full knowledge of who they are in You and the authority they have as believers and joint heirs with Christ. We call to every soul that is to come into the kingdom of God. We dispatch warring angels to go to every corner of the earth and bring forth an abundant harvest of souls now in Jesus’ name. There is no frustration of purpose and no delay in the manifestation of Your mature sons and daughters in the earth. The earth groans and awaits and the time is now for us to be revealed. Rise us up oh God, fill us with more of You until we overflow. None of us oh God but all of You. Let Your divine and perfect will including Your timing be done in each of our lives. God we desire Your purpose above anything we have planned. We say do what You will in us and through us. For it’s in You that we live, move and have our being. We are nothing without You and can only do all things through Christ who is our strength.
We seek first Your kingdom and Your way of doing things and all things will be added unto us. Save, heal, deliver and prosper Your people in this earth God. We take our rightful place as royalty and we are whole in You – nothing missing, lacking or broken; no evidence that the enemy has even touched our lives. Now let the words of our mouths and the meditations of our hearts be acceptable in Thy sight. We thank You God that it is done and is so, in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
Happy, Blessed & Prosperous New Year! Make this year your best year ever.
