Shofar Watchmen by Rev. Dr. S.L. Gardner

This Prayer emphasis and prayer model is meant to inspire you. Let the Holy Spirit lead you into expanded prayer as you read the emphasis for this week.

Numbers 10:9 When you go to war in your land against the enemy that oppresses you, then blow an alarm with the trumpets, that you may be remembered before the Lord your God, and you shall be saved from your enemies.




Those two terms don’t seem to go together as we look at situations in not only our lives but in the world around us.  Join me and learn how and why WE WON!!!  No don’t laugh it’s The Truth and not some spiritual fantasy.

The Word says the enemy comes to kill steal and destroy BUT!!!
2 Corinthians 4: 16 Therefore we do not become discouraged utterly spiritless, exhausted, and wearied out through fear. Though our outer man is progressively decaying and wasting away, yet our inner self is being progressively renewed day after day.
    17For our light, momentary affliction this slight distress of the passing hour is ever more and more abundantly preparing and producing and achieving for us an everlasting weight of glory beyond all measure, excessively surpassing all comparisons and all calculations, a vast and transcendent glory and blessedness never to cease!,
    18Since we consider and look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen; for the things that are visible are temporal brief and fleeting, but the things that are invisible are deathless and everlasting.

LORD JESUS! The afflictions I face don’t seem light or slightly distressing but Your Word says they are so I need to adjust my perspective on my own problems. 

John 10:9 I am the Door; anyone who enters in through Me will be saved will live. He will come in and he will go out freely, and will find pasture.

THANK YOU! Lord Your Word says I WILL find pasture and I thank You for that promise not only for me but for those I intercede for.  I remember in Psalms 23 Your Word says You will MAKE me to lie down in green pastures and You WILL restore my soul.  I ask that this be done for those I intercede for now and I pray this in Your precious Name before The Heavenly Father of all.

    10The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance to the full, till it overflows.

LORD I’ve learned that You have given me authority over the enemy so I take that now and resist the enemy who has come to steal kill and destroy!  I rebuke and nullify any plan of the enemy aimed at my family and those I intercede for in Jesus Name!

    11I am the Good Shepherd. The Good Shepherd risks and lays down His own life for the sheep.

OH LORD THANK YOU!!!  You laid down Your Life for me and mine and I can’t ever ever thank You enough for that but even more I am praising You for what You did during the time of death before Your Resurrection.  I glorify the Son of God who defeated all the powers of hell and took back the keys to the kingdom!!!!

    John 10:14I am the Good Shepherd; and I know and recognize My own, and My own know and recognize Me--
    15Even as truly as the Father knows Me and I also know the Father--and I am giving My very own life and laying it down on behalf of the sheep.
    16And I have other sheep beside these that are not of this fold. I must bring and impel those also; and they will listen to My voice and heed My call, and so there will be they will become one flock under one Shepherd.
    17For this reason the Father loves Me, because I lay down My own life--to take it back again.

LORD! GLORY TO YOUR NAME AND PRAISE AND HONOR.  I humbly ask now that You extend Your merciful protection from the enemy to those I intercede for as I stand in the gap and make up the hedge around them in agreement with Your Words. Impel the “other” sheep to listen to Your Voice I pray.  The sheep in my family and the families of those I intercede for that are straying or are under attack from the enemy right now.

The Word says to Praise God IN ALL THINGS.  Boy is that hard sometimes but it is the BEST way to lift our souls out of depression and negativity.  Let’s face it what the Word says is true. Proverbs 27: 20Sheol the place of the dead and Abaddon the place of destruction are never satisfied; so the lust of the eyes of man is never satisfied.
    21As the refining pot for silver and the furnace for gold bring forth all the impurities of the metal, so let a man be in his trial of praise ridding himself of all that is base or insincere; for a man is judged by what he praises and of what he boasts.

If your test is less than complete death, the loss of everything right down to the shirt on your back with no way to recover, and absolute destruction and I do mean ABSOLUTE in every area of your life THEN YOU HAVE WON!!! Even in death we are not defeated because the Word tells us that to be absent in this flesh is to be present with the Lord so we can't lose no matter what!!!

So (making raspberry sound) pfffftttthhhhh satan YOU LOSE because GREATER IS MY GOD and NOTHING you do is permanent ONLY WHAT GOD DOES IS LASTING.

Oh my gosh! What's the matter with me!? How can I say that?  Things can be (or are) so awful!!!  Well it’s because you’re still alive and ready to decide to either go Gods way or not.  When we say we beat the enemy at his own game that’s awesome.  Take every single negative thing in your life and find the positive opposite.  Then apply Gods Word and wait and watch as the Lord works out HIS plan for you. 

Will testing ever end? 


Ohhhhhh great! Just what I wanted to see....

We are being prepared for the Kingdom of God and that’s just that so the whole thing is to make sure HOW WE RESPOND to the tests because they tests and attacks aren’t going to stop but the victory over them is assured IF we choose the way of The Lord.

Father God we praise You and thank You that Your plans are for my good and not evil.  I am not going to be overwhelmed with my situation because You said that John 16:33 I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have perfect peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted! For I have overcome the world. I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you. GLORY TO GOD AND PRAISE TO THE SON OF GOD!!!
THANK YOU BECAUSE YOU SAID 1 John 4:4 Little children, you are of God you belong to Him and have already defeated and overcome them the agents of the antichrist, because He Who lives in you is greater mightier than he who is in the world.

Lord as the enemy comes to kill steal and destroy I stand saying I want to be among those who You speak of in Revelation 12:11And insert YOUR name has overcome conquered him by means of the blood of the Lamb and by the utterance of MY testimony, for I did not love and cling to life even when faced with death.

In Jesus Name I bring (name all those you intercede for and groups you are petitioning for) to You Lord asking for You to do whatever is necessary to bring all of us into the very center of Your Will for our lives.  I surrender!!!  But ONLY TO THE LORD AND NEVER TO THE PLAN OF THE WORLD THE FLESH OR THE ENEMY!!!!
Also pray for those who intercede for You and are on your own heart.

Lord I ask that even more warring and ministering angels be sent to protect, war for and minister to all those I’m interceding for and trust You to bring about Your best plan for their lives!
I will praise the Lord IN my circumstance.  Now think of the worst situation or situations you have in your life and see the Lord working as You praise. I praise you that
And the list goes on. :)
