Father God, we acknowledge You as the One, True, Living God. You are our Source and Resource; every good and perfect comes down from You, the Father of lights, in whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.
Father, we thank You for the gift of Your Son, our Savior, Jesus, who is the Christ.
Jesus, we thank You for the gift of Your Self, Your sacrifice, Your tears, Your blood, Your death, Your resurrection, Your ascension, Your intercession, and Your Spirit.
Holy Spirit, we thank You for Your manifest Presence. You are the Spirit of Truth and You lead us into all truth, by the power of the Word of God and by Your transformative power renewing our minds.
Today, we thank You for revealing to us that “down” is a state of mind. We rebuke that state of mind today, in Jesus’s name.
We come against anything and everything that would drag us down, pull us down, take us down, tear us down, tie us down, hold us down or keep us down.
We will not be downbeat, downcast, downfallen, downhearted, down in the mouth, or so downtrodden that we continue to cast our glance downward.
Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
We lift our eyes today to the hills from whence comes our help. Our help comes from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.
We look up for healing.
We look up for deliverance.
We look up for strength.
We offer up our praise.
We send up our praise.
We lift up our hands.
We raise up our voices to declare that the only thing coming down on us is Your Spirit.
Spirit of the living God, fall fresh on us. Fall down on us, even as You have raised us up together and made us to sit together in heavenly places. From those heavenly places of authority, we declare and decree that we are upward-bound and upwardly mobile.
We are upbeat, upcoming, updated, up girded, upgraded, upheld, and uplifted.
We walk upright before God and we therefore uproot everything in our lives that is not of God.
We are experiencing upshift, upsizing, upsurge, and upsweeps.
Our minds are made up.
Our heads are held up.
We are on our way up.
And You, O God; Father, Son and Holy Spirit, are uppermost in our minds, even as we press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
We declare and decree this day that as our praise comes up, You, the Blesser, and Your blessings, are coming down on us, in Jesus’s name.
