At the Name of Jesus
“There are times when things seem hard and situations are absolutely impossible. Divisions among people groups, religious groups, generations, etc., hold us back from expanding Your Kingdom. These days are upon us now. In these days, we must lift up the Name of Jesus, that Name before which every knee must bow. We will lift that Name up over the Middle East, over the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, over racial and religious tension. We speak into the storm of terrorism and tension just as Jesus spoke into the storm, ‘Peace, be still!’ We say, ‘Holy Spirit, hover there.’” (Hannah Sheets)1
“The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep water. The Spirit of God was hovering over the water. Then God said…” (Genesis 1:2-3a; GWT)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
Exalt the Name of Jesus!
Exalt His Name over chaos in the earth, tragedies, disturbing news stories.
Exalt His Name over religious division, doctrinal differences, differing belief systems and personal opinions.
Exalt the Name of Jesus over hatred, ideological walls and cultural barriers.
Declare that at the Name of Jesus every knee will bow and every tongue will confess Him as Lord.
Call for Holy Spirit to come and hover over all of these things, recreating them according to His Divine plan!
A prayer you can pray:
“Jesus, You are the answer. So, we exalt Your Name. We exalt Your Name over chaos, over news, over tragedies, over “he said”, over “she said”, over doctrine, and over personal belief. Lord, we exalt Your Name over personal opinions, over hard-to-discern situations, and over hatred. Jesus, we exalt Your Name over walls and barriers. We exalt Your Name, the Name that is above every Name, the Name at which every knee will bow and tongue confess, the Name that is lifted high above every other name, the Name of Jesus!”1
We decree that Holy Spirit will come and hover over the nations and He will reveal Jesus!
