Morning by Morning, May 4 - "Ride on Victoriously!"
Good morning, Lord Jesus. I call on Your name and listen for Your voice in these first moments of my morning with You, my God -- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. ...
"Gird your sword on Your thigh, O mighty One, in Your glory and majesty. In Your majesty, ride on victoriously for the cause of truth and to defend the right.... Your throne, O God, endures forever and ever. Your royal scepter is a scepter of equity; You love righteousness and hate wickedness. Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You with the oil of gladness beyond Your companions... In the place of ancestors You, O King, shall have sons; You will make them princes in all the earth. I will cause Your name to be celebrated in all generation; therefore the peoples will praise You forever and ever" (Psalm 45:3-17).
Lord Jesus, You are our Messiah; You are the Christ. You are the Anointed One who rides on victoriously. With Your sword of truth and Your scepter of majesty, You rule and reign in the hearts of the sons and daughters of God, who call on Your name as children of the King. May Your name be celebrated and Your praise be heard from our hearts as we lift up our voices in all the earth, now and forever.
And one day soon, we will see You ride on victoriously when the trumpet sounds and heavens open and You return to rule and reign in all the earth: "Then I saw heaven opened, and there was a white horse! Its Rider is called Faithful and True, in righteousness He judges and makes war. His eyes are like a flame of fire, and on His head are any diadems; and He has a name inscribed that no one knows but Himself. He is clothed in a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. And the armies of heaven, wearing fine line, white and pure, were following Him on white horses. From His mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and He will rule them with a rod of iron; He will tread the wine press of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty. On His robe and on His thigh He has a name inscribed, "King of kings and Lord of lords!'" (Revelation 19:11-16)
Ride on victoriously in my heart today, Lord Jesus. As You fill me with Your Spirit, ride on victoriously in my world, everywhere You send me today, girded with the sword of Your truth and the authority of Your name. You are the One who is Faithful and True, The Word of God, the King of kings and the Lord of lords. And by the mystery of the grace of God, You're also in me -- "Christ in (me), the hope of glory" (Colossians 1:27). In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
Be encouraged today! In the Love of Jesus, Tommy Hays

Friends, Thank You so much for your prayers for us at the Fredericksburg, Texas campus of Oak Hills Church this past weekend, where we were teaching and equipping for healing prayer ministry in our strategic partnership between Rapha God Ministries and Oak Hills Church. We're excited to see what God will do!
I was also thrilled to hear from my great friends at St. James United Methodist Church in Athens, Georgia that a class of 42 prayer warriors just completed a 9 week Bible Study from my book and Messiah Ministries dvd teaching on Free to Be Like Jesus! Praise God!
God bless you! And may the Holy Spirit continue to teach you and empower you and your church in prayer ministry and every ministry to which you are called and anointed by God!
