An Artisan is a person skilled in an applied art; a craftsperson: a person or company that makes a high-quality or distinctive product in small quantities, usually by hand or using traditional methods (Dictionary.com)
This morning, as I started out on my daily Bible reading, I was led to pray for Artisans. The Word of God came to me saying:
“Look, I have specifically chosen… I have filled him with the Spirit of God, giving him great wisdom, ability, and expertise in all kinds of crafts. 4 He is a master craftsman, expert in working with gold, silver, and bronze. 5 He is skilled in engraving and mounting gemstones and in carving wood. He is a master at every craft! 6 “And I have personally appointed… to be his assistant…I have given special skill to all the gifted craftsmen” (Exodus 31:2-6; NLT)
Let us intercede for Artisans:
- ABBA FATHER, thank you for being such a loving and caring God who takes interest in all His creation.
- We thank You for giving gifts to all humans and also that these gifts and callings are irrevocable
- In accordance with your will, we present to you Artisans: those persons and companies which make high quality and distinctive products.
- We know that you take delight in the prosperity of your people, so we ask that you grant them more enabling grace with which to function excellently in their vocation.
- Knowing that “To subvert a man in his cause, the LORD approves not.” (Lamentations 3:36; AKJV), we rebuke the forces of evil that are trying to destabilize, unsettle, overthrow, overturn, damage, destroy, pervert, corrupt, undermine, bring down, topple, depose, oust; disrupt, wreak havoc on, sabotage, ruin, weaken, damage, deprave, contaminate, poison, embitter and frustrate Artisans from functioning excellently in their vocation/profession; to get off their case and let them be.
