STAY PRAYED UP by Nina Keegan


To be a strong military or army, they must be very prepared in every way to stay protected… They have their full military armor, They have full instructions on how to use their weaponry, they study to learn how to recognize the enemy and to stay vigilant and alert in case of an attack. They learn defensive and offensive strategies in order to outsmart, cancel and prevent enemy attacks.

Friends our spiritual battles need to be handled very much the same way! Just because our battles maybe supernatural we still need to be completely strategic in our battle plan.

One thing I do every day is pray Psalm 91 protection over myself my family, my friends, my ministry, and for this nation! I boldly pray these prayers out loud as the enemy is the prince of the atmosphere… He cannot stand against the word of God!
I break it down line by line and physically see myself protected, covered.. as I declare these words over every concern I have and every situation!

Psalm 91
1 Those who live in the shelter of the Most High
    will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 This I declare about the Lord:
He alone is my refuge, my place of safety;
    he is my God, and I trust him.
3 For he will rescue you from every trap
    and protect you from deadly disease.
4 He will cover you with his feathers.
    He will shelter you with his wings.
    His faithful promises are your armor and protection.
5 Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night,
    nor the arrow that flies in the day.
6 Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness,
    nor the disaster that strikes at midday.
7 Though a thousand fall at your side,
    though ten thousand are dying around you,
    these evils will not touch you.
8 Just open your eyes,
    and see how the wicked are punished.
9 If you make the Lord your refuge,
    if you make the Most High your shelter,
10 no evil will conquer you;
    no plague will come near your home.
11 For he will order his angels
    to protect you wherever you go.
12 They will hold you up with their hands
    so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.
13 You will trample upon lions and cobras;
    you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet!
14 The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me.
    I will protect those who trust in my name.
15 When they call on me, I will answer;
    I will be with them in trouble.
    I will rescue and honor them.
16 I will reward them with a long life
    and give them my salvation.”
Each morning I physically see myself putting on the whole armor of God and I see myself with my sword and my shield ready for battle and ready to overcome… We must be prepared with an arsenal of the word of God… It is our double edge sword that can cut through anything the enemy throws our way! The battle is already Won...the enemy is a defeated foe! We need to realize and know who we are in Christ.. we are sword bearers of the word!!

Ephesians 6:11-18King James Version (KJV)
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.

I pray the Lord's prayer every day in earnest knowing that this is the prayer that Jesus himself told us to pray… It is not just words that we have memorized since childhood… But it is a blueprint to follow every day! I personalize it and pray each line specifically for certain needs in my life… I love when it says that "Thy kingdom come"… I pray that Heaven kisses earth concerning all needs… We glorify God By Hallowing (praising )his name!!! We have knowledge of who he is as OUR FATHER...!
The Lord's Prayer 
Matthew 6:9-13

Our Father, which art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come. 
Thy will be done in earth, 
As it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive them that trespass against us. 
And lead us not into temptation, 
But deliver us from evil. 
For thine is the kingdom, 
The power, and the glory, 
For ever and ever. 

Next I always say the prayer of JABEZ
The prayer for God to bless us INDEED in  every area of our lives... that's not just normal blessings... that's a blessing indeed, that's an Bonafide exclamation point! BELIEVING FOR
GODS BEST .. and for Him to expand our territories, our purposes, and His divine plan for us... glory to God!!

1Chron 4:10
The prayer 
"And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, 'Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain.' So God granted him what he requested."

Each day I like to start my day ready for battle, geared up, prayed up with my arsenal of the WORD! Nothing can stand against the word of God and the name of JESUS!
I daily declare in the name of Jesus that no weapon formed against me or my family can ever prosper… We can pray the Scriptures, these are blueprints and outlines that we can personalize over anyone and over any circumstance, situation or trial!
When we combat the enemy with the word of God and the name of Jesus he has to flee!!
My challenge to you is to copy these prayers and to say them out loud every day for 30 days...learn them and let them become part of your daily battle plan to overcome and cancel all of the assignments of the enemy… then let's see things begin to turn around!

I love you all and I  pray blessings over you all every day!!
God bless you my precious friends!

Hebrews 4:12New King James Version (NKJV)
12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
