Father God help us to correct the “Alien Marriages”, as Ezra did”!

(Ezra 10:1-5)

Father God, we come before Your Presence this day to say thank You and to give You praise for how well You watch over our SOULS! Thank You for placing in us the right mind and the right attitude to hear what the Spirit has to say to us, thank You for giving to us ears to hear You speak to us and thank You for giving us eyes to see and to discern Your Will from our will, thank You, Lord!! We bless Your Holy Name and give You Praise! Alleluia! Alleluia!! And Praise You Lord!!!!

Father God, we ask that You will continue to show us Your Will in our life and help us to NOT allow our flesh to get in Your Way, so make us to know when to cause the FLESH to be still, because there are times, we can get ourselves into trouble that takes years to get out of, only because we walked in our flesh. So Father God, as it is written in Ezra 10:1 Now when Ezra had prayed, and when he had confessed, weeping and casting himself down before the house of God, there assembled unto him out of Israel a very great congregation of men and women and children: for the people wept very sore. Now, we do the same as Ezra, we come confessing our sins of lust, fornication, adultery and marrying the wrong person because we had sex with them. Help us Father to put the shame of it away from us and give us such an anointing of the Holy Ghost, that it will keep us from marrying the wrong person and staying with them because of being in the Church. And, help us as the Ministers to correct the Alien Marriages that have taken place! Father God, we come before our MOST HOLY God and we plead with You through our tears, forgive them and replace the wives and the husbands who are unconverted Aliens!!

Father God, we cry out to You because we have sons and daughters who have walked out of the Church and married Aliens who were just baptized in Your Name and were counted as an incomer or a newcomer or a visitor who never knew Your Ways nor Your Word but they were outsiders and strangers. But, they were never given the proper time to take Your YOKE upon them to learn of You. They saw them, our children, and allowed themselves to get with them and they didn’t try to make sure that the Newcomers, got with You into the New Convert’s Class. Now, instead of them (our Sons and Daughter) turning the Newcomers to You, the Newcomers, have turned them to things that they were NEVER taught. So, we give our tears to You, this day and we need You to teach us how to draw YOUR Sons and Daughters back to You and how to remove the Aliens out of their life, for good or get the Aliens converted! Bless the Lord, O’ my Soul!!

Father God, confession is something most of the people don’t want to do; but, we know that confession is good for the soul and as it is written Shechaniah admitted that he had trespassed against God. He admitted that he and the others had entered into a marriage with a stranger outside of the Body of Christ without permission from God and that they intruded upon the person whom they had married as is written in Ezra 10:2 And Shechaniah the son of Jehiel, one of the sons of Elam, answered and said unto Ezra, we have trespassed against our God, and have taken strange wives of the people of the land: yet now there is hope in Israel concerning this thing.

Father God cause our children to speak as Shechaniah has spoken and cause them to see as he saw concerning the HOPE of us coming together in Prayer during this time of “Convocation” confessing, crying and casting ourselves down seeking Your Face. And, give to us what we are expecting. We soulfully look for and expect the changes to be made for our Sons and Daughters, but when they come, cause them to CONFESS their wrong in prayer to You!!!

3 Now therefore let us make a covenant with our God to put away all the wives, and such as are born of them, according to the counsel of my lord, and of those that tremble at the commandment of our God; and let it be done according to the law. Father God, cause them to come to the point of making a Covenant with You by agreeing with Your Word and by promising to keep Your Commandments and cause them to bind themselves to Your LAW with personal commitment and cause them to keep their word to You, realizing that they have been baptized in the Name of Jesus and filled with the Holy Ghost and their wives and husbands should have the same thing that they have, concerning Salvation and Doctrinal teaching!!!

Ezra 10:4 Arise; for this matter belongeth unto thee: we also will be with thee: be of good courage and do it. Father God, of a truth we can do nothing without You and the chosen Ministers in Abundant Grace Apostolic Pentecostal Church, must stand together and walk in agreement concerning Doctrinal Truths. So, when one of our Sons or Daughters gets with a stranger, who is NOT converted, let none of us participate in signing marriage licenses and speaking the words of a wedding vows over them, but help us to be as EZRA has done in Ezra 10:5 Then arose Ezra, and made the chief priests, the Levites, and all Israel, to swear that they should do according to this word. And they sware. Now Father, as the Chief Priest, who are Pastors, Teachers, Prophets, Apostles and Evangelist stood together and swore that they would walk according to the WORD, give us the same mind to work together as one, because You have called us to now be the Priesthood and we thank You for “Calling and Choosing” us to be the Priesthood in this time! We are asking for Your ANOINTING to be great on and in us, in Jesus Name!! Amen.
