TOPIC: Have the right friends:


Blessed is the man that walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful.

Beloved, if we must rebuild our broken walls today we must have the right friends


Have the right friends:  A popular adage goes thus; United we stand, divided we fall! Nehemiah’s volunteers were determined to rebuild Jerusalem’s walls. We must work with willing spirits to sustain the way of the Lord. If we must build up the walls of our lives, if we must raise our fallen walls we must work together and essentially work with those who are going somewhere. If your friends are not ready to grow and you keep them as friends you will not grow. 1Cor.15:33 Do not be  deceived: “Bad company corrupts good character.” You cannot grow spiritually, financially  and even morally with bad friends around you.

6 Intercessory Prayers: 

Lord, as I pray for breakthrough in my life, let your will and promises for my life come to fulfillment. I decree the manifestation of all of God’s blessing and favour in my life in the name of Jesus.

Father grant that I will be free from every soul tie that is around me; spiritual or physical. I disconnect myself from every demonic bond that i will be free their evil manipulation.

Lord Jesus save my family, save my children from bad friends. May they not walk in the path of the ungodly or sit among scoffers. Grant that they will delight in you day and night and remain prosperous in all they do.

Father, please guide my footsteps to take the right path in life. Let every step I take lead me a step closer to You. Walk beside me, Lord and, as You never leave nor forsake me, help me not to go astray.  

In Jesus’ mighty name, I break the power of any commitments, contracts, agreements, dedications and vows made over me and my family. I cast out any demonic forces which may have come into my life by ungodly soul ties or any other sin. I thank you for doing this, in Jesus’ name, Amen.

Thank you Father for the grace of this prayer during this month. Thank you because by your grace we are marching forward into the month of January 2021 in the name of Jesus.

 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
