SONGS FOR THE DAY:

FIRST SONG: ‘Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)’ by Hillsong United

 

You call me out upon the waters

The great unknown where feet may fail

And there I find You in the mystery

In oceans deep, my faith will stand

 

And I will call upon Your name

And keep my eyes above the waves

When oceans rise, my soul will rest in Your embrace

I am Yours and You are mine

 

Your grace abounds in deepest waters

Your sovereign hand

Will be my guide

Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me

You’ve never failed and You won’t start now

 

So I will call upon Your name

And keep my eyes above the waves

When oceans rise, my soul will rest in Your embrace

For I am Yours and You are mine, oh

And You are mine, oh

 

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders

Let me walk upon the waters

Wherever You would call me

Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander

And my faith will be made stronger

In the presence of my Savior

 

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders

Let me walk upon the waters

Wherever You would call me

Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander

And my faith will be made stronger

In the presence of my Savior

 

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders

Let me walk upon the waters

Wherever You would call me

Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander

And my faith will be made stronger

In the presence of my Savior, oh

 

I will call upon Your name

Keep my eyes above the waves

My soul will rest in Your embrace

I am Yours and You are mine

THE BUD FAMILY JUICY JULY PRAYER PROGRAMME

 

If you are done singing our main song for today, sing this chorus below with so much spiritual aggressiveness. I pray the Lord envelopes you with His power where you are now in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen. 

 

Ancient words ever true

Changing me, and changing you.

We have come with open hearts

Oh let the ancient words impart.

 

(SING THE SONG ABOVE AS MANY TIMES AS YOU CAN TILL YOU HAVE A RELEASE IN YOUR SPIRIT TO MOVE ON. PRAY THE LYRICS FIERCELY AS YOU SING)

 

It’s Day 9 of our Juicy July Prayer Programme and today, God is set to do things anew in our lives AGAIN! Amen?

 

I pray that your testimony will not elude you in the mighty Name of Jesus. Amen

 

Today, we are knocking on Heaven’s Door for DIVINE GUIDANCE AND DIRECTION IN LIFE.

 

THE BUD FAMILY JUICY JULY PRAYER PROGRAMME

 

Psalm 5:8 says ‘Lead me, O Lord, in Thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make Thy way straight before my face.’

 

‘The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want’

 

Those were the gracious words of the psalmists in the book of Psalms 23:1. Our Lord Jesus Christ is the good shepherd, He will never lead us into the chaos of life, but He shall lead us beside the still waters of life. 

 

Divine guidance is real, and God is still in the business of leading His children. No product can be maximized without the manual of the manufacturer. The manufacturers manual is what guides us to maximize the purpose of any product that we purchase. In the same way, God is our manufacturer and His word is our manual, and we are His product,or as the bible puts it, His workmanship- Ephesians 2:10. 

 

Therefore we must always consult our manufacturer to tell us about our purpose in life. The best way to get divine guidance and divine direction from God is through daily prayers and the studying of the Word of God.

 

And this is why you should not only pray the prayers in these bulletins alone. You should study the accompanied Bible verses as well!

 

Memorize them!

 

Internalize them! 

 

Today, we are knocking on Heaven’s door for divine guidance. It is for those who are seeking for  God’s direction concerning the issues of their lives. Issues like: marriage, business, career, calling, children, family etc. 

 

God will never leave us in the dark about our life,but we must learn to call on Him in prayers. It is only those that ask for direction that will enjoy it- Matthew 7:7-8. 

 

We must ask God in prayers- please,do not take important steps or make important discussions about the issues of your life without asking God for direction. 

 

 

We serve a God that knows all secrets, Deuteronomy:29:29, nothing is hidden from Him, there is nothing about your life that can ever take God by surprise, He knows all the possible outcomes of your life, no matter how random.

 

If you need direction in your life, God is your only Source. He is your maker,and just like He told Prophet Jeremiah, in Jeremiah 1:5, He said before you were even born I already know your purpose and destiny in life ( paraphrased). This is to tell us that only God can tell us the direction to go in life, not our teacher, not our parents and definitely not our friends but God and only God. 

 

We must learn to engage in daily prayers for His direction, we must learn to always consult him in all our discussions, we must reject a life of trials and error. I see God opening your eyes to see the right path concerning your life in Jesus Name. 

 

Pray this prayer with faith and receive direction in Jesus name.

 

Let God show you some mysteries in your prayer battles. You will marvel at the revelation God will show you concerning some battles. As the month progresses, He will direct you in whatever you do this month. 

 

Effective prayers lead to direction and revelation. There are several things hidden that have not been made known to you except you take these prayers. Some people are in marriages, they simply can’t get to the mind of their spouses. Humanly, we cannot tell if this man or woman is for us or not. We cannot know the minds of our spouses. We cannot change our children. We cannot tell if we should go for marriage now or Masters or job. We cannot tell if we should start that business or not. 

 

Dear family, we need direction to walk on the right path of our destiny. When God directs and guides a man, that man becomes a successful person and reaches his destination very fast. Revelation without direction is a life without purpose.

 

LET US PRAY. 

 

Before we pray, let us sing our second song for today. 

 

If you know the full song, sing it! If you do not, just focus on the chorus below. This song will break you! I like the singer of this one in particular. 

 

Since it is quite short, sing it over and over again. Sing it for like 7 times before you proceed!

 

It is titled: *IN THE HOLLOW OF HIS HANDS BY ENNI FRANCIS*

 

….From the storms and tempest

He will hide me

In the hollow of His Hand

 

In the hollow of His Hand

In the hollow of His Hand

I am safe whatever may betide me

In the Hollow of His Hand

SHALL WE PRAY?

 

CONFESS THESE PRAYERS VERY PASSIONATELY:

 

O Lord my God, help me to trust you with my decisions and my future. Let me lean on you with all my heart instead of relying on my own imperfect understanding. Give me clear guidance in my life, Lord. 

 

As I submit myself to you, I know that you will direct my paths and I can have confidence that your direction is always the best way to go. Hear my prayer, Father. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.

 

Gracious Heavenly Father, Your word says that You will always guide me. You do not leave me wandering through life, but You are with me during every moment of every day. You will satisfy my needs when I feel frustrated and You will strengthen me when life makes me weary. 

 

Help me to follow Your ways as You lead me into a life of fruitfulness and joy. May I be like the well-watered garden which thrives because the roots are firmly planted in Your love. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.

 

Loving Father, please send your Holy Spirit to lead me. You said that Your Spirit will teach me all things and guide me into all truth. Remind me of the words of Jesus as I make choices today. 

 

When I become overwhelmed with the decisions that are placed before me, please give me the peace that surpasses all understanding. Clear my mind to follow You with all my heart, all my soul, all my mind and all my strength.  Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.

 

Generous Father, you have told me to ask You for whatever I need. You said that if I ask, it will be given. If I seek, I will find. If I knock, the door will be opened to me. I ask you for guidance and direction now, Lord, and pray that You would answer my request. 

 

You are a perfectly good Father who only ever gives good gifts to His children. You love to give good gifts to those who ask. As your humble child, I ask for the gift of wisdom today. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.

 

God of all Truth, I spend so much time thinking, planning and worrying about my life. Your word says that, although people plan their course in their hearts, it is You who establishes our steps. Help me to make You the center of my planning. I can do nothing without You giving me the strength to do it. I can plan nothing without You giving me the mind to plan it. The desires of my heart can only be satisfied in you. Direct my steps, Lord, to follow you.  Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.

 

Creator God, you made me and you love me. My circumstances do not define me, my identity is as Your child. Whatever I do today, Your loving eye is on me and You have promised to counsel me. Help me to bring everything in my life before you. When I am uncertain, help me look at you. Instruct me and teach me, Lord, in the way that I should go and the paths that I should take.  Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.

 

All-knowing God, Your word is living and active. Help me to be attentive to Your voice as You guide me through life. Your word is a lamp for my feet. When I don’t know where I am going, help me to listen to You and follow the path that You show me. 

 

You are a light shining in the darkness. When I don’t know which way to turn, You will shine the light of Your love into the cloud of my confusion. Bring clarity to my mind. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.

 

Lord Jesus Christ, when I am uncertain about what I should do, show me Your ways. When I don’t know which way to turn, teach me Your paths. In everything I do, I ask You to guide me. My hope is found in You from the moment I wake up until the moment I fall asleep. You are my Savior. You have rescued me from sin and I ask that You protect me from making sinful choices.  Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.

 

God of all wisdom, you have promised that if anyone lacks wisdom, we should ask you, and you will give us that wisdom. I ask you for wisdom now, Lord. Help me to make wise decisions that are for my good and your glory. You will give me wisdom not because I have earned it, but because it is a free and gracious gift. You are a generous, loving Father, and all wisdom is found in you. Give me all the wisdom I need right now.  Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.

 

Mighty God, if I try and live my life without you, I will fail. Long ago, you sent your presence in a towering cloud and burning pillar of fire to guide your people through the wilderness. When I don’t know which way to go, I ask that I would know your presence near me, guiding me in the right direction. 

 

I do not want to go anywhere without you, Lord, because being in your presence is the best place for me. Protect me from harm and direct my steps. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.

 

God, Creator of all things, you made me and you know me better than anyone else. You know me better than I know myself. Your eyes watched over my development in my mother’s womb and all my days are written in your book before I was even born. 

 

Help me to trust in your providence, Lord. You are my provider and protector. You are my wisdom and my light. Guide my thoughts, words and actions as I live my life.  Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.

 

FOR WE HAVE DECLARED ALL THESE PRAYERS IN THE NAME OF THE LIVING SON OF GOD, JESUS! AMEN!
