You are a special agent, ambassador full of authority to pray and intercede for all those that are before you. I want to remind you of a few things:
1. "But put on the Lord Jesus Christ..." Romans 13:14 Job says, "I put on righteousness and it clothed me." Paul puts it.."You are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus." II Corinthians 5:21 You and I have been made right in the sight of God no by the blood of Jesus.
2. "Let us draw near with boldness or confidence to the throne of grace..." Hebrews 4:16 God desires for us to come to Him as a Father.
3. "Draw near to God and He will draw near to you." James 4:8 You approach God speaking out loud and hold nothing back.
4. Romans 6:13b "...but present yourselves to God as those alive from the dead and your members as instruments or 'weapons' of righteousness to God." Today, all authority has been given to you (Matthew 28:16-20 and Mark 16:15-18) and know you are a weapon carrier, loaded for battle. See yourself as God sees you!
5.Call on God Today - Jeremiah 33:3
Shout to God Today - Psalms 47:1 Speak to God Today - James 4:8
Sing to God Today - Psalms 96:1
Ask for a new song Today - Psalms 40:3
There's one thing that sticks out today and that is the members of your body are weapons. Please use what God has given you.
