Give me the zeal, confidence and the right words to remain in praise this month, in Jesus Name. 2. As I praise God this month, I declare that the earth will yield her increase for me and God will bless me, in Jesus Name. I decree the peace and blessings of God upon this month of March, in Jesus Name. I rebuke every form of distraction projected to sidetrack me from praise this month, in Jesus Name. 3. O soul of mine, Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord from the heavens; praise Him in the heights! Praise Him in the congregation!
