Feed your faith, not your fears. Speak it out loud. Use your words. Use your faith. Use the authority given to you.
We live in an area prone to severe weather in the spring and the fall and kind of any other time as well, or so it seems. I do not like sever weather of any kind unless it’s snow. My fear is stirred up when I hear reports of impending severe weather and I know better. Fear is not of God.
I see other brothers and sisters in Christ whose fear is also stirred up. I become angry. Not at myself or at them, but at the enemy. When I get angry with the enemy, I’m ready to fight.
2 Timothy 1:7 (KJV)
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
How do we fight the spirit of fear? With our two-edged sword, same as we fight any other battle. The Word. The Bible. God’s commandments. God’s Truths. The things we were given through Jesus Christ. The prayer below is spoken out specifically against the storms in our area, from the Ohio Valley to the Gulf coast, and rebuking them as we have authority to do. This can be applied to any “storm” you see approaching. It doesn’t have to be a literal weather report. It can be against any storm the enemy tries to blow your way. I cannot stress enough how important it is to read your Bible and know what authority you have in Christ. We perish for our lack of knowledge. You have to feed your faith constantly. You must devour the Word each time as if you haven’t eaten in months.
Print this off, keep it with you. Fill in the “storms” that threaten you and pray this, out loud. It is so important that we open our mouths and pray. Speak the Words OUT LOUD. God spoke with world into existence. Stand up! Be bold! Claim your inheritance! Satan is a liar and can have no stronghold on you!
If you are reading this, I ask that you pray this specific prayer and be in agreement with me today. Where two or three are gathered He is amongst us. There is power in prayer. Let it glorify the Father and be a testimony of who Jesus is.
Father, we thank You for Your sovereignty and for the power given to us through your son, Jesus Christ, and the sacrifice He made on our behalf as a testimony of your love for us. We use the authority given to us according to John 14:12 and rebuke any attack of the enemy including severe weather. We know four things:
- Faith the size of a mustard seed can move mountains (Matthew 17:20, Luke 17:6)
2. Jesus calmed a storm (Matthew 8:23-27, Mark 4:35-41)
3. Jesus himself told us we could do what He does and greater things even (John 14:12-14)
4. You are a God who cannot lie so we stand on Your Truth (Numbers 23:19)
I have faith of a mustard seed and greater. I believe Jesus was your Son and calmed the storm. I believe Him when he said I can do the same and I rebuke the attack of the enemy and command peace to settle over the land and over your sons and daughters. I command the winds to be calm, the hail to melt and the rains to be soft. I command the trees to be rooted firmly in the ground and not give way. I command the rain to drain off as it should. We rejoice in Your protection and we rejoice in Your greatness. Amen.

And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you.
And when he was entered into a ship, his disciples followed him. And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep. And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish. And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm. But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him!
And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side.
And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships. And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full. And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish? And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?
