IN DEBT to the Believer and the Unbeliever
"Both to Greeks and to barbarians
(to the cultured and the uncultured), both to the wise and to the foolish,
I have an obligation to discharge and a duty to perform and a debt to pay."
Romans 1:14 (Amp

In Everything We Give Thanks

"Now will I arise, says the Lord,
because the poor are oppressed,
because of the groans of the needy;
I will set him in safety and in the salvation
for which he pants.
Psalm 12: 5 (Amp)

Lord, in everything we give thanks, for this is the will of God for us.  We thank You for this wilderness season that You are bringing us out of.  We thank You for this pit of lack and debt that we have been in, for what the enemy has meant for evil, God, You have used for our good. You have brought us to a greater knowledge and understanding of You. You have caused us to know and depend on You alone, strengthening our faith and our trust in You as our Provider, our Healer, our Deliverer, our Couselor, our very strength and peace. You have replaced the desires and pleasures of this world with a passion to know You intimately. You have brought us together in unity as family, breaking walls of division and denominations. You have stripped us of ourselves and brought humility and divine order. You have delivered us and unloosed the bonds of wickedness of fears and intimidations that have kept us from declaring who You are in us. Jesus, we thank You for this new strength that is arising, a new unity, a new authority that we stand in. We thank You for the work of Your Spirit that has taken place in us in this season in the wilderness and this pit that we've been in. We thank You that You are reaching down and pulling us, Your beloved bride, out of this pit and setting her feet upon the rock of her Redeemer.  We thank You that anger is arising in You against the rage of our enemies and You are awaking and stirring up for us the justice and vindication that You have commanded.  We thank You, Lord, for Your mercy, because the poor are oppressed and because of the groans of the needy, You are arising and setting them in the safety and salvation for which they long and pant for.
We thank You, Jesus, our Redeemer, our strength and fortress, our deliverer, the horn of our salvation. You are mighty, and You are awesome. There is none like You. You are worthy of all praise. You are high and lifted up. You are the King of kings, and the Lord of lords, the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the Author and the Finisher of our faith. You, Jesus, be exalted in the heavens and in the earth. All glory and honor is due Your name. Amen and amen
