Prayer for Hidden Pines Fire- Bastrop CountyOctober 14, 2015 | Written by Maureen Stanek
Church, we must arise right now and take our place. Let’s pray together:
“Father, you said that every place upon which the sole of our feet shall tread You have given unto us (Joshua 1:3). We are seated with You, Lord, in heavenly places (Ephesians 2:6). From this place in Christ, we take authority over all destruction in our county. We ask, Lord, for supernatural assistance. Help the firefighters put out the Hidden Pines Fire. Give wisdom to all those in leadership as they work throughout the coming days to extinguish this fire. We ask for protection and strength for all those working to stop this fire. You bring life and You bring goodness. We command fear to leave hearts in the name of Jesus. We put our eyes upon You right now in the midst of this storm.
We pray Psalm 91 over Bastrop County and declare that we dwell in the secret place of the Most High and we remain under the shadow of the Almighty. You are our Helper and our Deliverer in times of trouble and we look to You”:
1 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand].
2 I will say of the Lord, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I [confidently] trust!
3 For [then] He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence.
4 [Then] He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings shall you trust and find refuge; His truth and His faithfulness are a shield and a buckler.
5 You shall not be afraid of the terror of the night, nor of the arrow (the evil plots and slanders of the wicked) that flies by day,
6 Nor of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor of the destruction and sudden death that surprise and lay waste at noonday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand, but it shall not come near you.
8 Only a spectator shall you be [yourself inaccessible in the secret place of the Most High] as you witness the reward of the wicked.
9 Because you have made the Lord your refuge, and the Most High your dwelling place, [Ps. 91:1, 14.]
10 There shall no evil befall you, nor any plague or calamity come near your tent.
11 For He will give His angels [especial] charge over you to accompany and defend and preserve you in all your ways [of obedience and service].
12 They shall bear you up on their hands, lest you dash your foot against a stone. [Luke 4:10, 11; Heb. 1:14.]
13 You shall tread upon the lion and adder; the young lion and the serpent shall you trample underfoot. [Luke 10:19.]
14 Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness–trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never]. (Psalms 91)
15 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life will I satisfy him and show him My salvation.
We are standing strong and will not be moved! Refuse to fear!
In His Love,
