Pray To Possess by Bishop Sean Teal, Th.D.
There is a corporate cry that must go up to God from His people in order for us to possess what He wants and has for us to possess. This is the watchword of the season, “POSSESS!” Read the Word and then pray the Word out loud. It will radically change your life and the possibilities of what you can possess.
“Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession” (Psalm 2:8).
“And ye shall dispossess the inhabitants of the land, and dwell therein: for I have given you the land to possess it” (Numbers 33:53).
“Behold, the LORD thy God hath set the land before thee: go up and possess it, as the LORD God of thy fathers hath said unto thee; fear not, neither be discouraged” (Deuteronomy 1:21).
“Likewise when the LORD sent you from Kadeshbarnea, saying, Go up and possess the land which I have given you; then ye rebelled against the commandment of the LORD your God, and ye believed him not, nor hearkened to his voice” (Deuteronomy 9:23).
“But the saints of the most High shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever” (Daniel 7:18).
“And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force” (Matthew 11:12).
“For they got not the land in possession by their own sword, neither did their own arm save them: but thy right hand, and thine arm, and the light of thy countenance, because thou hadst a favour unto them” (Psalm 44:3).
“Heavenly Father, You are blessed for evermore! All of creation is by Your decree. You are the Possessor of heaven and earth. The fulness of the world is Yours. The inhabitants of the earth belong to You. You rule above all. There is none who can contest Your power. There is none that can compete with Your character. You are the Holy One!
In the name of the only Son of God and Savior, Jesus the Christ, we approach You in faith seeking to possess those things that will bring your kingdom to come and cause Your will to be done in earth as it is in heaven. We know You have plans for the future. We know You have plans for our good and not for our evil. We know You do all things well.
We pray to possess Your good, acceptable and perfect will. We lay claim to Your wisdom that you have laid up for the upright. We possess the wisdom that You give liberally. We possess wisdom as the principal thing. We possess understanding.
In the name of Jesus, we release the resources Your people need to underwrite Your will. We possess wealth, riches, increase, prosperity, income, promotions, bonuses, salaries, commissions, dividends, options, estates, properties, sales, rebates, and financial inheritance.
In the name of Jesus, we release those who have wronged us, formed weapons against us, intentionally hurt us, maliciously used us, mentally abused us, emotionally wounded us, spiritually disabled us, personally attacked us, ignorantly spoke against us, and sought our destruction. We possess forgiveness and meekness. We possess no record of their wrongs. We possess the love of Christ and forgive even as God for Christ sake forgives us.
In the name of Jesus, we possess the victory that comes by faith in Jesus Christ. We are more than conquerors. The Greater One lives in us. We are blessed in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. We take our stand. We fight the good fight of faith. We possess the whole armor of God. We overcome by the Blood of the Lamb and by the word of our testimony.
We praise You! You showed us mercy. You saved us by grace. We are the prized and purchased possession of God in Christ. We are bought with a price and therefore we glorify You in our spirits and our bodies. We belong to You. We are Spirit-filled. We possess the Spirit of adoption and we cry, “Abba Father”. Thank You for the Holy Spirit! We love and need the Holy Spirit!
Yours is the kingdom, power and glory. Amen.”
