“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.

For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace.
-It was by one man’s offense that death reigned through the one, but much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through Jesus Christ. It was through one man’s offense that judgment came to all men resulting in condemnation, even so through one Man’s righteous act the free gift came to all men, resulting in justification of life. It was by one man’s disobedience that many were made sinners, and better still by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous. Moreover, the law entered that the offense might abound, but where sin abounded, grace abounded much more, so that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 5:17-21). To be under the law is tying to earn salvation with our own strength but under grace is to be justified and live by the indwelling power of Christ. We can die to sin, not because of the law forbidding it, but because of the abundant grace that God provides. Christ suffered once for our sins that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit by His grace (1 Peter 3:18).
Oh LORD, our God, how majestic is Your name in all the earth. You are great and mighty to be praised. There is truly none like You in all the earth. You keep all Your promises for You are so faithful. We worship You and exalt Your holy name today. Thank You God for this new month. We honor You God and bless Your Name. May You sanctify us and cleanse us with Your precious blood Lord Jesus. We commit this new month of February unto You and pray that You shall be exalted and enthroned forever. We pray that we shall extend the dominion and reign that You bestowed upon us through Your Son Jesus Christ, upon the power of sin and death. Sin and death have no power over us for You dwell in us and with us Holy Spirit. Today in this new month, we subdue our flesh and the fleshly worldly desires by the Power that raised Jesus Christ from the grave. Father we ask for Your grace that You have given us so that we may overcome sin and all fleshly desires to be upon us and fill us more and more. Father we pray that You will guide us in the way of righteousness away from sin and the slavery of sin. We also pray for our families, friends and nation, that death will have no dominion over our lives. Break every chain that presents itself like death in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. We come against the spirit of death and we declare that death has lost its sting over our lives in Jesus name, and by the power that raised Jesus Christ from the grave death is defeated in Jesus Mighty Name. We declare that we shall live and not die to declare Your goodness Oh Lord. We declare that we shall not die before our time in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. We pray that You shall protect us from every snare of the devil and heal us from all sickness and infirmities dear Jesus. We pray that You shall take over and reign in our lives and in all that we do. Thank You Dear Lord for You are faithful and You are able to do all this beyond what we can ask for and even think of. Thank You Lord for Your exceeding grace and power upon our lives which You richly give unto us. We trust in You faithful God. We pray all this trusting and believing in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

“Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you.”
-The Lord assures us protection from the powers of darkness, if we put our trust in Him. If we are in Christ, we are a new creation and have dominion over serpents and scorpions and all the power of the enemy. Psalms 91:13-14 reaffirms this fact to us that, we shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, the young lion and the serpent we shall trample underfoot, if we love the Lord. Mark 16:17-18 demystifies this fact by reminding us that those who have faith in Jesus shall cast out demons in His name, take up serpents and shall by no means experience harm even if they drink anything poisonous, they shall speak in new tongues, lay hands on the sick and they will recover. Jesus reminds us to be bold and courageous, and to shun away from fear for He has won victory for us, and has placed all things under His feet (Ephesians 1:22).
Praise be to the Lord our Rock, who trains our hands for war and our fingers for battle. Dear Lord You are our loving God, our all-time protection and our fortress, our stronghold and our deliverer, our fortress and our shield, in whom we put all our trust. You have given us dominion over the powers of darkness in Your name Jesus, we trust in You. By Your power Holy Spirit, who raised Jesus from the grave, we come against every principality and power of darkness working against us, our families, societies, and our nation Kenya, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. We pull down every opposition, obstacle and accusation in the Mighty Name of the the Lord Jesus. We put them under the feet of Jesus Christ for we have victory in You dear Jesus. No evil fashioned against us shall prosper and no tongue raised against us shall prevail in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. We break every chain by the blood of Jesus. May You heal our hearts and increase our faith in You dear Jesus. May we walk in power as You have called. May You heal all those who are sick and suffering merciful Savior. We pray that You will show us Your salvation each day and give us long life for the glory and honor of Your Name Jesus. Lord we praise You for You are good and faithful to us. We pray this in Jesus name, Amen.

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.”
-The tongue has great power and dominion over our lives, situations and environment. Great care must be taken on the words we speak, that we may edify each other. James 3:5-6 reminds us that a tongue is a small member but boast about great things, like a fire which can destroy an entire forest. The tongue is a world of iniquity and can defile the whole body, setting on fire the course of nature by hell. When words abound sin is not lacking, but the prudent hold their tongues (Proverbs 10:19). We are called to ask for wisdom from the Lord that we may know how to address the Lord and one another through love. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body (James 3:2). Great care must thus be taken to prevent quarrels among relations and those under obligations to each other. Wisdom make it easy to forgive and speak grace to each other and our situations; but corruption makes it difficult. A gracious tongues edifies others and causes both inward and external peace. God gives us wisdom and purifies our hearts that our hearts may bear good fruit. The Holy Spirit gives us the fruit of love that we may be blessing to one another, and sets up apart to a path of prosperity and enjoyment of pleasant fruit forever.
Lord Almighty Father, You are the King of all kings and Lord of lords. You are the Lion of Judah we come before your throne of mercy today. We praise and worship You for all You have done for us this far surely Lord You have done us well and there is truly none like You. Oh Lord we pray that You will forgive our sins and purify us by Your precious blood. Father we thank You for Your Word that reveals to us the dominion we have over life and death by our tongue. We pray for Your wisdom that we shall always speak and declare Your great power over our life and all our life’s matters. We declare today that our tongue will be a vessel that is used by You and that invites Your power into all situations in Jesus Name. We pray that our tongue shall be used to praise, worship and glorify You in all ways. May You grant us wisdom so that our tongue always be used to encourage others. Father may You fill our tongues with Your Holy Spirit that whatever we utter shall be a blessing to many and shall lead many to You Christ because of Your Holy Spirit that works in us. We cancel every evil word we have spoken about ourselves and our lives and all matters concerning our lives in Jesus Mighty Name. Any evil curse or word that has been spoken against us in any way even in the past or by our bloodline and that may want to follow us, we nullify and cancel those words by the blood of Jesus in the Mighty Name of Jesus. We pray that You will be exalted in our lives. That the power that raised Jesus Christ from the grave shall work through our tongues to bring life into all situations. We speak life to every dead situations and matters in our lives. Today we lift You Lord and enthrone You in our lives. Thank You Lord for the tongue You have given us and the power You have given unto us. We love You and appreciate You. We pray this in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.

“But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,”
-Jesus loves us with unending love that He died for our sins and cleansed us with His precious, making us holy by His grace. It is by grace through faith that we have been made righteous and not by our works lest anyone should boast. We should then have confidence knowing that God raised us out of death into life and positioned us securely in Christ, whom all dominion belongs.
The Lord from inception has intended us to have dominion. In the beginning before He created man, He purposed that man should have dominion over the fish, birds, cattle, over all the earth and every creeping cattle (Genesis 1:26). We are stewards created in the image and likeness of God, called to take care of what the Lord has entrusted upon us. The Lord has also given us authority to tread over serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, with the assurance that nothing shall hurt us (Luke 10:19). Due to the fact that Jesus died on the cross for our sins, and has destroyed the power of death and hades. Christ, having died once and raised from the dead, death no longer has dominion over Him (Romans 6:9). We then have victory in Jesus for we trust in Him and His power of resurrection. Therefore, sin has no dominion over us for we not under the law but under grace (Romans 6:14). God has saved us through grace and we are seated with Christ Jesus in heavenly places. If then we are seated with Christ in heavenly places, and everything under His feet, we are more than conquerors in Christ Jesus and His ambassadors.
Almighty Heavenly Father, we praise You today and thank You for Your goodness upon our lives. We bless You for You have done great deeds and thus we shall make them known in all the earth. We praise You today with all our soul and our inmost being. All dominion and power belongs to You dear Jesus. We shall surely not forget any of the marvelous benefits You have given us. You heal all our diseases, You have forgiven our sins, redeemed our life from the pit and crowned us with love and compassion. Truly You are faithful and wonderful. Today we commit all those who are unwell asking that You may heal them from all sickness and infirmities in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ by the Blood of Jesus. Dear Lord may You strengthen and comfort all those who are weak discouraged and heavy laden. We cast all our burdens unto You for You care for us dear Lord. We humbly repent before You and ask for Your forgiveness and mercies dear Jesus. We commit the homeless and the needy in the society unto You praying that You will provide all their needs according to Your riches in glory and Your abundant Mercies. We ask that You grant the gift of salvation unto all those who do not know You. Thank You Lord that truly no tribulation, sickness or matter of life can put us down or defeat us for You have gone ahead of us to raise us up together with Christ and we are seated with Him in heavenly places. We ask You dear Jesus to remove any accusation against us and give us victory in all things for the glory and honor of Your name. We thank You, honor and exalt You, and we pray that if there is anything that may hinder us from accessing our blessings be broken right now in Your name Jesus. We are more than conquerors in You Jesus, and nothing will ever harm us. We are ambassadors of You dear Jesus, may You take charge of our lives, families, work, ministries, churches and nation, for the glory and honor of Your name. We pray this in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
