I repent that I have not treated and valued the Kingdom of Heaven as I should and that I have exchanged the value of the Kingdom of Heaven for the desires of my heart in the form of an earthly Kingdom. Lord, I repent for worrying about life, food, and clothing. I repent for laying up treasures on earth where moths and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal. I repent for robbing You, Lord, and not freely and cheerfully giving my offerings to You out of a heart of…Continue

Lord Jesus Christ,

I cover my spirit, soul and body, my mind, intellect, consciousness, sub-consciousness, thoughts, will, senses and emotions with the Blood of…Continue

Lord, I repent for and renounce the sin of transgressing Your will and command by partaking of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
I repent for disobedience to Your known will, which stopped me from being fruitful, filling the earth and subduing it and having dominion as You intended. I repent for surrendering the authority You gave to me.

I choose to forgive those who have come against my spiritual authority and influence. I forgive those who declared that I was not operating in the Spirit because they wanted to restrict me to a dimension of their understanding in the natural realm. I forgive them for coming against the influence that You chose for me to have.
I choose to forgive those who have suppressed women and children and limited their potential for growth. I forgive those who have silenced women…Continue

“We need to get…!” is a rallying cry many churches make. When a new thing comes out and a church sees another using it successfully, it’s not uncommon for a church to follow along.
Calvin recently wrote about the church and social media. He wrote about its effectiveness:
So is social media effective for a church? It can be, but in most cases, it probably isn’t. The shocking reality is…Continue

I repent of being tolerant of the Jezebel spirit in my home, my church and my community.
I repent of my passivity and fear that has stopped me from confronting those under this spirit.
In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ I bind everything of the kingdom of Jezebel in my life. I come against every right and stronghold that has been built up in my…Continue
