'Deliver us from destruction'

Published:Thursday | September 3, 2015 | 12:00 AMSonia Cranston

Holy, holy, holy are You Lord! My heart shall rejoice in You because I have trusted in Your holy name. Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord and the people whom You hath chosen for Your own. Thank You, Lord, for redeeming the souls of Your servants, and none of them that trusted in You shall be desolate.

Father, I call upon You today for the people of Jamaica. I ask that You will have mercy and deliver them from destruction. I apply the blood of Jesus Christ over this nation. Every weapon of bondage upon this nation be released in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. I reverse the curse of poverty from over this nation in the name of Jesus. I bind the strongman that is keeping this country from moving forward in the name of Jesus Christ. Save now, I beseech You, O Lord. O Lord, I beseech You, send now prosperity upon the people.

Lord, I pray that the leaders of this great nation will govern with all honesty and not fulfilling their own selfish desires. Give them godly wisdom in all their decision-making. Where there's miscommunication, let there be clarity. Help them to be transparent in everything that they do for the good of the nation.




Dear Lord, I pray that You will maintain good family relationships between parents, children, and all family members. May You protect and preserve them from any unresolved or permanent breach. Fill each one's heart with Your love and give them an abundance of compassion and forgiveness that will overflow to each member of the family, especially in my own family. Thank You, Lord.

Father, I thank You for the authority in the name of Jesus Christ to break every generational curse that is destroying so many families. May You bring them close together in a loving and fulfilling relationship between all members of the family all the days of their lives. Let there always be good communication between them. Let unforgiveness have no place in their heart. Help them to love, value, appreciate, and respect one another so that the God-ordained tie between them will not be broken. Help them to resolve misunderstandings according to Your word, to be of one mind, having compassion for one another, love as brothers and sisters, be tender hearted, be courteous, and to keep unity of the spirit in the bond of peace. Do it in my family O Lord.Thank You Jesus.

O Lord, I present the student body in all the learning institutions, teachers, and guidance counsellors. May You grant them godly wisdom so that they will make wise decisions. I come against any challenge that may arise to disrupt the proper functioning of these institution, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.




I pray that the children in the school system, as well as the society today, will begin to develop an attitude of respect and honour for their teachers, instructors, and those who are set over them. Help them not to be influenced by evil forces or seductive spirits that will control their minds to take weapons to school. Thank You, Lord.

Father, I pray that You will turn the heart of all our children towards their parents by honouring both fathers and mothers so that their lives will be long. Lord, help them to resist rebellion. Remove from them selfishness, stubbornness, idolatry, and disrespect. Give them a heart that desires to obey You, Lord. May the power of Your Holy Spirit transform their lives.

Protect all our children, O Lord, as they return to school. May You keep them safe from predators and every hidden or unseen danger. Guide them so that they will not walk in the path that leads to death and destruction.

Hallelujah! Praise the Lord! The word declares in Psalms 84 verse 11: "For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord will give grace and glory; no good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly." in Christ Jesus. Amen.
