Prophetic Decree #4: Fullness of Relationships

5 Prophetic Decrees of Abundance | Decree #3 Fullness of Relationships | by Jamie Rohrbaugh | FromHisPresence.com | Prayer and declaration for covenant friends and good relationshipsAre you lonely? Do you long for close, covenant friendships? Do you long for someone to love and someone who loves you back? If so, I want to speak a prophetic decree for relationships over you today!

You are not alone if you’re lonely. I think that, other than the need for Jesus Christ and fullness of His Spirit, this is THE biggest need in the Body of Christ right now. Many people don’t have friends. Even people whom you would think have it all because they’re pretty, popular, or wealthy, are too often going home at night crying because they haven’t a friend in the world.

But God’s will is for you to have close, covenant relationships with kindred-spirit friends and, if you’re married or want to be, with your spouse.

What does a close, covenant friendship look like?

  • It looks like having people you love enough to die for, and who love you enough to die for you. (Although we hope that no actual dying becomes involved, since we all desire to live a good, long life.) 😉
  • It looks like having someone who can read you like the back of their hand.
  • It looks like being so close to someone that you know when they’re hurting, even if they haven’t told you.
  • It means you’re loyal to each other. You stand by one another through thick and thin.
  • It means you’re friends for life. Even if one of you moves away and you rarely see each other, you can always call on your covenant friend.

But many folks don’t have even casual friends with whom they can go to dinner or to the theater–let alone a covenant friend they can call when they’re really in need.

And what does a covenant marriage look like?

Marriage, by its very definition, is a covenant. It is a blood covenant between one man and one woman, and it is for life. There is one exception to the “covenant for life” thing, though: Jesus said that even though marriage is intended to be for life, if one spouse commits adultery, the other spouse is not bound to stay in the marriage. But other than that, marriage is intended by God to be a beautiful covenant of love that lasts your whole life long.

God’s original design for that beautiful covenant of love looks like this:

  • You and your spouse love each other unconditionally.
  • You serve your spouse and prefer him or her as better than yourself, and your spouse does the same.
  • It means that, husbands, you love your wife as Christ loves the Church–meaning you give yourself for her totally, even when such service is unrequited.
  • Wives, you love and submit to your husband as to the Lord … even when he doesn’t deserve it.
  • Covenant marriage means you are determined to stay together and love each other no matter what … because you promised.
  • Covenant marriage recognizes that the source of all true covenant is God Himself, so you will seek God first and seek Him together, knowing that He will make everything all right as you do.

And if you want a full cup of blessings in your relationships–both in covenant friendships and marriages–you can have it.

You can have an amazing marriage. You can have have amazing relationships with your bosses, your mentors, and your church family. How? Ask God for help.

  • Ask Him to bring you into the fullness of relationships that you desire.
  • Ask Him for close, covenant friends.
  • Ask Him to show you what you need to do to meet those friends.
  • If you’re married, ask God to teach you to love your spouse–and to help you actually carry out that love in day-to-day life.
  • Ask Him to give you His heart for your spouse.
  • If you’re single, ask Him for the spouse He has ordained for you.
  • Also if you’re single, ask God to lead and direct your steps so you can meet and build a relationship with the spouse He has for you.
  • Ask Him to help you love and honor all people, and to prefer them as better than yourself.
  • Ask Him to help you love people the way He does, and see them the way He sees them.

I have prayed these things so many times. I used to be so lonely.

I felt like I didn’t have friends. But, I began to pray about it. I asked God for covenant friends, and He began to answer.

Our loving Father will answer you, too, when you pray for close, loving, covenant, holy relationships! When you start to ask Him for friends and relationships–even a spouse–He may work in mysterious ways, but He will answer your prayer!

So let me speak this prophetic decree and blessing over you for fullness of relationships, and then you speak it over yourself at the end, ok?

In the name of Jesus, I decree that you are blessed in your relationships. I decree that you have close, covenant friendships with people who love you and would be willing to die for you. I decree that you also love your covenant friends with the selfless, agape love of Jesus, and that you would also be willing to die for them.

I release the heart of God into you right now. I decree that you are filled with the fullness of God’s love right now, that you are able to love yourself like God loves you, love God back with all your heart, and love His people. I bless you with the ability to see people with His eyes and hear them with His ears. I decree that you have grace to love and honor people, no matter what.

I decree that God’s love must exude from every pore and fiber of your being onto those around you. I decree courage and boldness into you to reach out to others when the Father desires you to do so. I decree that you will be a place of safety, comfort, encouragement, and refuge to your friends.

I bless you with the ability to make friends, and to show yourself friendly.

I bless you with the ability to ask others about themselves and truly care about the answers. I bless you with having friends who ask about you as much as you ask about them. I decree in Jesus’ name that you have a heart to serve, honor, and protect. I decree that you are trusted AND trustworthy.

For married people: I bless you with a heart to love your spouse unconditionally. Wives, I bless you with being able to love and submit to your husband as to the Lord. Husbands, I bless you with loving your wife as Christ loves the Church, being willing to give even your very life for her.

For single people who desire to be married: I decree that you and your spouse will meet at the right time and in the right way. I call forth the godly, covenant marriage the Father desires you to have, and I command it to manifest in the Father’s time and perfect will in Jesus’ name. I bless you with patience in waiting. I bless you with a spirit of purity. I decree that you shall be holy, as God is holy; for without holiness, no man can see the Lord.

I call forth the absolute fullness of godly relationships that Jesus Christ paid the price for you to have. I speak to every new friendship the Father desires you to develop, and I command those friendships to be manifest right now in Jesus’ name.

Now speak this blessing and prophetic decree for relationships over yourself:

In the name of Jesus, I decree that I am blessed in my relationships. I decree that I have close, covenant friendships with people who love me and would be willing to die for me. I decree that I also love my covenant friends with the selfless, agape love of Jesus, and that I would also be willing to die for them.

I receive the heart of God from the Holy Spirit right now. I decree that I am filled with the fullness of God’s love right now, that I am able to love myself like God loves me; love God back with all my heart; and love His people. I decree that I see people with His eyes and hear them with His ears. I decree that I have grace to love and honor people, no matter what.

I decree that God’s love excudes from every pore and fibre of my being onto those around you. I decree that I have courage and boldness to reach out to others when the Father desires me to do so. I decree that I will be a place of safety, comfort, encouragement, and refuge to my friends.

I decree that I have the ability to make friends easily. To have friends, one must show themselves friendly; and I am friendly!

I decree that I am able to ask others about themselves and truly care about the answers. I decree that I have friends who ask about me as much as I ask about them. I decree in Jesus’ name that I have a heart to serve, honor, and protect. I decree that I am trusted AND trustworthy.

For married people: I decree that I love my spouse unconditionally. Wives: I decree that I love and submit to my husband as to the Lord. Husbands: I decree that I love my wife as Christ loves the Church, being willing to give even my very life for her.

For single people who desire to be married: I decree that I and my spouse will meet at the right time and in the right way. I call forth the godly, covenant marriage the Father desires me to have, and I command it to manifest in the Father’s time and perfect will in Jesus’ name. I decree that I am patient in waiting. I decree that I am pure and holy, as God is holy; for without holiness, no man can see the Lord.

I call forth the absolute fullness of godly relationships that Jesus Christ paid the price for me to have. I speak to every new friendship the Father desires me to develop, and I command those friendships to be manifest right now in Jesus’ name.

    Marni
    PS. Praying for you! xo

      1. Hi Jamie, thank you for your help and obedience to the Father. I pray you are blessed with ALL spiritual blessings.

  2. Rafael-Olivier Somma says:

    I would like to have people who would die for me, because I would die for a lot of people. Also people who would go thru thick and thin with me. I hope to find my rightly spouse in the not so distant future…:)

    1. I pray you will, Rafael-Olivier. I know Daddy God has just the right lady in mind for you, in His time and perfect way. Hopefully sooner rather than later! Just hang in there and seek God first and His Kingdom, and all these things will be added to you (Matthew 6:33). A great promise to claim for that wife!

  3. Wendi McKenzie says:

    Jamie…I thank God for you! Your are so encouraging. You are making such a difference in many lives. Continue being obedient to Daddy God!!! I love you.

    1. Thank you so much, Wendi! I’m so grateful that Daddy God uses this blog to minister to His kids! Thank you for your encouragement, and thank you for reading!

  4. Jamie , I started out by searching out a dream I had and found your web site . I so needed your prayer about covenant friendships .I was beginning to feel that maybe is was not Gods will for me to make friends.I attend church however I have yet to make a covenant friend at the church I attend .I get invited to bible study yet I walk away empty .I think I was going so I could try to make friends but that has not happened .They seem to be superficial but not want to make friends with me .I cried when I read your prayer because I thought Lord I need this . it seems so small to say thank you .

    1. Hi Vicki. Oh, dear sister, it is ever-so-most-definitely God’s will for you to have close, covenant friends! Pray for God to lead you to those kindred spirits, and if you find someone you’d like to get to know, please be brave and ask them if they’d like to have lunch or coffee or ice cream or whatever! I’ve found lunches to be one of the best things I’ve ever done to make friends. Freaky-good things happen over lunch! 🙂 And I pray right now for God to lead you to the first person that you can get to know, who will be a kindred-spirit friend, with whom you will have things in common and you can serve them and love them just like they will serve you and love you! Developing any friendship takes time, but you can do it, and He will help you!

  5. This need has been on my heart and when I read your post awhile ago about feeling alone as a pioneer, it really hit home. As our family has been called to move overseas, I really believe God is going to bring us this. It is hard to wait expectantly some days, but I know it’s worth it.

  6. Germany 🙂 I am chronically ill and the treatments there have healed me before and we believe God wants to bring healing to me there again. And more than that, we feel called to build His kingdom there and whatever else He has in store for us. My husband is currently looking for a job there and as soon as the Lord provides off we’ll go. It is very hard to trust and wait as my health is quickly declining but we know our harvest is coming!

    1. I’m sorry you’re going through that. I pray the Holy Spirit would minister healing and strength to you today in Jesus’ name. 🙂 Hugs!!! Hang in there! 🙂

      1. Thank you 🙂 your blog has been such an encouragement to me!

  7. Thank you so much Jamie! Praise the Lord His timing is always on time for an encouraging word for my spirit.
    It seems like after saying Yes, totally to the Father. Friends who were friends are no more. God has bless me with new friends, as you mentioned covenant friends. Friends who are on the same mission to kingdom building and living. I also stopped dating because I said God what is the use of dating if the pattern just seem the same. So I just decided to surrender trying to figure it out and ask the Lord to help me to choose my husband. Friendships are important relationships. I rather do it God’s way then to miss out on His very best for me and to avoid unnecessary pain etc. This was really good ?

    1. Natulinda Agatha says:

      Hi Jimmy, thank you so much for having time to pray for me/us. I am Agatha Natulinda from Kampala Uganda, 36yrs no children and husband but I believe that after I prayed those encouraging words, I am going to get a good husband as well as children in the name of almighty God. You will hear my testimony soon and God bless you more.

  8. Hi Jamie,

    It is great to meet you! If you ever wondered if your encouraging is touching lives. Wonder no more, God’s word has no boundaries and it has touched me. Any and everything is possible with God! A few weeks back, I prayed and ask God to send me a mentor that could speak to me about God’s love, mercy, grace, etc.., and I happen to stumble on your webpage. I was so excited on how you shared God’s word that it has fast tracked and deepened my relationship with God in such a small time increment. Moreover, the prayers and declarations you spoke over my life will indeed change my destiny. I believe it! God’s word bolsters are desires and purposes. I thank you for being humble enough to have God use you to save souls. I am one. Amen.

  9. Divinefavor Osinloye says:

    Amen! I ask for Divine Setup and courage to walk through those open doors the Lords has opened already for me in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
    Lord, promote (and establish) me in this in Jesus’ Mighty Name, Amen.

  10. Thank you so much! I woke up and saw this and thought, this is the word I have been waiting and praying for! So excited!

  11. Thank God and Jamie for this prophetic word. Jamie your truly a blessing may God continue to bless you in your ministry 🙏🏾🙌🏿❤

  12. Scrolling through my emails and so this on time word! Thanks so much for all that you do! As I continue down this road of waiting on a spouse, I have faith that waiting patiently my future husband will come in Gods perfect timing!

  13. Annanson John says:

    As always exhaustive! Power packed! Thank you
    I just triggered a move to get hooked and bam! This. After going through the entire prayer I am further equipped to engage without dreading the pitfalls.
    Prophetess God bless you.

  14. 38,single and lonely. Trusting God for a spouse to fulfil his promise that its not good for man to be alone…………

  15. This word is on point and a confirmation of what I have been praying about for the past few days. I know God has answered my prayer. Amen.
