New Year Prayer - Joel Osteen (Lakewood Church)

Joel Osteen is the pastor of the largest growing church in USA. He pastors Lakewood Church, where Cindy Cruse Ratcliff and Israel Houghton brings you into God's presence with their anointed worship.

I stumbled upon this video clip where Joel was praying for the church the weekend before Christmas and he prayed a very anointed and powerful prayer over the church. After hearing it the first time, I played back and replayed it again (and tried to capture the prayer in text).

Claim that prayer as you start 2008 and believe that GOD has the BEST that is Yet To COME in your life!! :)

Watch the Video below






Joel Osteen's Prayer

(In Video, it starts from the 1.52 minute)

Father I thank you for all that you have done this year.

Lord, You have been good to us. Even for those who have not seen your blessing,in the way we have hope, we know that you are still in control.

We believe that our best days are still right in front of us, that you still have great victories in stored for each one of us.

Father, we choose right now to let go of everything that didn't work out. We let go of every disappointment. Father just stir our faith and we thank Yougot New Seasons in stored for each one of us.

Father I thank you that even today as we are worshipping You, You are making our crooked places straight. You are going before us making rough places smooth.

Father I thank you that each one of us will fullfill the destiny that You have laid out for us. We believe that no weapon formed against us will ever prosper. That even today we thank You that you are fighting our battles for us.

Father I Pray that we feel hope rising in our hearts, that we get a bigger vision of victory for our life. That we will know in a bigger way that You are still in control, that You've great things in store.

And just stand against the forces of darkness that's trying to pull us down thru sickness, thru discouragement, thru problems in our relationship, thru financial difficulty. Whatever it may be, we believe those forces are broken right now.

Father we thank you that Greater is He that's in us than he that ever comes against us. We know if You be for us, who dares even be against us.

Father, we've seen you do great things in the past, we know that You can do greater things in the future. So Father we are releasing our faith today. That we will enter into New Seasons of your increase, New Seasons of your blessings and favor.

I pray for every person that's here. You know their needs, just thank You that You are restoring joy, restoring peace, restoring health, restoring victory, restoring vision. Lord, whatever the enemy is trying to steal today, we thank You that you are not only gonna restore, You will bring us out better off than we were before.

We thank you that You are our vindicator. You said when we keep our trust in You, You will double for our former shame, double for any trouble that will come into our lives.

Today we stir our faith up, we enlarge our vision. We believe You've got greater things in store for each one of us. We just declare it by faith just like we were singing, We Are Overcomers, We are Victors not Victims. We are strong in the Lord and the power of your Might. We are well able to do what You have called us to do.

We are called, we are chosen, we are equipped, we are empowered, we are talented, we are creative. We walk in divine health.

Your favor is surrounding us like a shield. We thank You for all You've done for us in the past but we release our faith for even greater things in the future.

Father I thank You even today for making those crooked places straight. We thank you for 2007 for victories, for blessings, for protecting us.

Father we thank You that the best is still yet to come. We declare it by faith, we are Victors and not victims.

In Jesus Name

AMEN!

Dele,

As one who has studied Osteen's ministry and doctrine for years I can tell you he is in the Word Faith camp.

And good sounding words from him aside, are you aware that Joel Osteen - pastor of the largest evangelical church in America - has recently said that Mormons are true Christians:

Dear Ken

Tks for sharing your thoughts about Joel ... that's rather "interesting and scary" information that the website has on him!

But since i do not follow his ministry closely I can't comment further on what was said in apprising.org

Regardless .. i was just focusing on the Prayer that Joel made and its a beautiful prayer to claim over our lives for the New Year!

I pray that God will bless all of us in 2008! :)
