THEME: DOMINION OF MAN
“Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
-The Hebrew word for dominion is radah which means to rule, dominate, tread down, tread upon or to subdue. The Lord has released the grace of dominion and ruler-ship upon mankind that we may rule upon every animal, bird and fish, and bear fruit. This is the dominion that came by virtue of God’s creation, making us in His own image and likeness (Genesis 1:26). God has created us to be kings and priests to Him, and to reign the earth (Revelation 5:10). God is the King of kings and Lord of lords and He desires that we conquer all for the glory and honor of His name. Jesus confirms that we are more valuable that birds of the air, which do not sow, reap or store in bans yet the Heavenly Father feeds them (Matthew 6:25-26). Jesus requires that we bear much fruit in whatever that we have been called to do. He purifies our hearts and reminds us to hear His word and keep it so that we may bear fruit, some thirty, others sixty and a hundred fold (Matthew 13:23). Jesus calls us to make peace in every situation that we may bear the fruit of righteousness (James 3:18). Let us also continually ask God to fill us with the knowledge of His will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that we may live a life worthy of the Lord and please Him in every way; bearing fruit in every good work, and growing in the knowledge of God (Colossians 1:9-10).
Almighty Heavenly Father, King of all kings, Lion of Judah, we come before You today. We adore You and praise You above all. You are highly lifted up above every thing and everyone. None can be compared to You and all belongs to You in heaven and on earth. Truly You are a great and mighty God. May You forgive us all our trespasses and wash us with the precious blood of Jesus Christ. May You sanctify us and prepare our hearts to receive all that You have in store for us this year. Father we thank You for You created us man and woman and gave us dominion over all animals of the land, sea and air, fish and birds of the air. Lord we thank You for this honor and privilege to serve You. May You take charge over all the matters of our lives, our families, work places, ministries and purposes and by the power and dominion that raised the Lord Jesus Christ from the dead, release Your power unto us, we pray that all shall submit unto You Lord and that we shall rule over all and dominate all for the glory and honor of Your name dear Jesus. We pull down every stronghold, principality, powers of darkness and evil works of the enemy that may try to rule over these areas of our lives and we put them under the feet of Jesus and Savior Jesus Christ. Thank You dear for the enabling power to be more than conquerors in You Christ Jesus. We decree that through You Lord we shall overcome every situation and dominate every living thing. We pray that we shall be the head and not the tail. We pray that all we do shall multiply just as You have commanded us. We pray that the grace of dominion and multiplication will be upon us and all our generations for the glory and honor of Your name dear Jesus. May You increase us in wisdom, knowledge, understanding, and impart in us the spirit of excellence. We pray that we shall bear good fruits in our lives, families, marriages, schools, work, churches, communities, nation and everywhere You have called us to dear Lord. Thank You God for You have promised never to leave us nor forsake us, and to guide and direct our steps always. You have promised to bless the work of our hands and that You are the one who teaches and empowers us on how to make wealth. May it be so upon us in Jesus Mighty Name. Bless the work of our hands dear Jesus. May Your peace overflow in our hearts, families and nation dear Jesus. May Your promises upon our lives be fulfilled in Jesus Mighty Name. For You are a covenant keeping God and You fulfill all promises. May You take over and take charge in every area of our lives. You are the Vine dear Jesus and we are the branches. May we bear much fruit according to Your great purpose. We pray all this in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.
