Praise in its purest form is thanksgiving by faith for a promise that has not yet manifested. The word of the Lord for Petra is this: “For 31 days, will you reject every negative thought and refuse to speak one negative word? For 31 days, will you thank Me by faith for a specific
promise I have given you? Will you for 31 days, lay this as a foundation and the standard for 2019?”
Join us as we offer to God the sacrifice of praise each day in January. The standard we set in January will impact the entire year! As you add agreement to our praise each day, add your personal praise for God’s promises to you, your family, and your community.
A special message from Bishop Clay
As I prayed for what to minister in 2019, the Lord asked me a question, “Will you give Me a first fruits offering”? The Father continued, “I don’t want a first fruits offering of money, I want the Sacrifice of Praise!”
Praise in its purest form is thanksgiving by faith for a promise that has not yet manifested. The Lord directed me to pose these questions to His people: “For 31 days, will you reject every negative thought and refuse to speak one negative word? For 31 days, will you thank Me by faith for a specific promise I have given you? Will you for 31 days, lay this as a foundation and the standard for 2019?”
My answer is, YES! Join me each day as I lay a foundation of Praise during the first 31 days of 2019.
