Preparation:
Does the Spirit of God know you?
 
Please pray sincerely to your God:
Lord, I thank you for your mercy and blessings
O Lord, please keep me in your love and grace
Lord, I thank you for life and for this week
My maker and my Lord:
Please guide me in body, mind and spirit
Please help me to stay under your wings and cares
Please do not leave me to my adversaries and my flesh
Please mark me with your sign of ownership
Please surround my family with your angels
Protect my abode with your heavenly hosts
Grant me true and faithful relationship with you and your Spirit
Shine your light on me to ward off the rulers of the evil world
May the name of Jesus work in my life and endeavors
Grant me your fulfilment and pleasure this beautiful week
O that the evil and wicked be subdued and cast away
That I am not tormented or tortured by the evil spirit
Step by step walk with me, stride by stride go with me
Thank you and take all the glory in the name of Jesus. Amen
 
Our word for the week - Acts 19: 13-16:

Some Jews who went around driving out evil spirits tried to invoke the name of the Lord Jesus over those who were demon-possessed. They would say, “In the name of the Jesus whom Paul preaches, I command you to come out.” 14 Seven sons of Sceva, a Jewish chief priest, were doing this. 15 One day the evil spirit answered them, “Jesus I know, and Paul I know about, but who are you?” 16 Then the man who had the evil spirit jumped on them and overpowered them all. He gave them such a beating that they ran out of the house naked and bleeding.”
