Tonight, Pastor Timothy Hohl from Ardmore United Methodist Church gave 10 boxes of food prepared with everything for a complete Thanksgiving dinner.
Along with the boxes were 10 turkeys for Prayer Works Evangelism Outreach Ministries to deliver to 10 families in Camden NJ.
It was a night of jubilee for the families who received packages.
The food was donated by the parishioners and packaged by their youth group.
Thanks to AUMC for blessing our ministry. We are grateful.
Here are the families that were blessed.
Proverb Chapter 5-6
Application of the text on the lies of the world relating to sexual pleasures or sin.
“We cannot stand firm against the lies of the world unless we are firmly grounded in Christ.
Be diligent to read God’s Word, and pray often.
Promise yourself to pray at three different times today.” By Max Lucado
Supporting scriptures on the topic Follow The Lord:
The world promises a lot of comfort to sin that leads to destruction.
God is standing at your heart door knocking, if you decide to open your heart and let him in, He will come in and dine with you.
That quiet dining can lead to eternal peace, rest.
Choose Jesus, choose life eternal!
Choose sin, choose eternal death!
You have the power to choose life.
Father I pray that you will come into my heart and heal me from the disease of sin.
I want to choose you today. Please forgive me of my sins. Amen!!!
If you read this article and repeated the prayer and asked God to come into your heart. Congratulation, you are now saved from sin! You are a child of God.

Peace, do I have God’s peace or am I just miserable? Can God’s peace be seen in me or everywhere I go, be, live I bring strife and cause issues?
God really wants to change this for you today. Tell him about your struggles in this area and how truly miserable you are. God wants us to face our struggles and ask for help.
I have included some scriptures to help you in time of misery.
How can I find true peace?
How can I have God’s peace?
How can I triumph over fear?
“In peace I will both lie down and sleep, For You alone, O LORD, make me to dwell in safety.”
“The LORD will give strength to His people; the LORD will bless His people with peace.”
“For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; and the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.
There will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness from then on and forevermore. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will accomplish this.”
“The steadfast of mind You will keep in perfect peace, because he trusts in You.”
“LORD, You will establish peace for us, since You have also performed for us all our works.”
“Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.”
“Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
“The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.”
“But now in Christ Jesus you who formerly were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall.”
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
. . . The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.”
Philippians 4:6-7, 9
“Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful.”
Today at 6:40am
Prayer meeting today 9-18-13: Our message today is titled “NO FEAR”. We’re reminded that the enemy’s weapon remains the same. He’s the master of fear. He applies this tool from his business plan, on everyone. But he has a specific group that he completely hates & loves to beat down all the time.
The group he roars at and goes after (as the Biblical lion seeking a “prey” to destroy)…… is God’s people. Throughout Bible history, satan focuses on victimizing the followers of Jesus Christ.
Because God promised us great rewards if we “hang in there” for Jesus & keep His commands (in love & obedience to Him). Our biggest & best reward shall be the right to enter & live in the Kingdom of Heaven in the presence of God. Something satan will NEVER experience again. How about that? Hebrews 13 vs 6 says, “So we say in confidence, ‘The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me”?
Today prayer warriors, as we go forward into the battle field, let us pray & ask God to take away our fears. After all, He is our father, Jesus is our Savior & the Holy Spirit is our guide.
Remember “God is our refuge & strength, an ever present help in trouble.” Psalm 46 vs 1. Blessings to all.
Prayer Meeting led by Kevin Barrett
The Father of Lies (John 8:44) uses falsehood, deceit, and temptation as tools for achieving his goals—and he has chosen our minds as a battleground.
Because faulty thinking leads to disobedient behavior, which impedes God’s purposes for us.
Read | John 8:42-47
We who follow Jesus Christ have an enemy, and his name is Satan (Mark 1:13). A created being, Satan is loose in the world but limited in what he can carry out against us (Job 1:12). Many people consider him nothing more than a figment of the imagination, which allows him to work undetected. While he is a defeated foe (John 16:11), he pretends otherwise.
Let’s look at some of Satan’s objectives:
1. To draw us away from God through both direct and subtle means.
2. To thwart God’s purpose in our lives by getting us out of our Father’s will.
3. To deny God His rightful glory and honor, which results from our choosing to live obedient lives.
4. To destroy us in this world.
The Father of Lies (John 8:44) uses falsehood, deceit, and temptation as tools for achieving his goals—and he has chosen our minds as a battleground.
Because faulty thinking leads to disobedient behavior, which impedes God’s purposes for us. Erroneous ideas produce vulnerabilities like worry or fearfulness, which Satan can exploit to hinder our spiritual progress.
Although setbacks may occur, believers will not be overcome, because “greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world” (1 John 4:4). Scripture says, “Take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ” (2 Cor. 10:5 niv). Offer a prayer of surrender: “Lord, I offer You complete control over my mind. Reveal any thinking that does not agree with Your Word, and teach me Your truth.

Article taken from CBN.com
After Elisha watched Elijah ascend into heaven, the prophet went to the city of Jericho and performed his first miracle. The men of that city faced an environmental crisis: Their water was toxic, most likely because of the sulphur and other chemicals that had rained down upon nearby Sodom and Gomorrah years earlier. This poison had made the land barren (see 2 Kings 2:19-22) and it was probably affecting people and animals as well as plant life.
So Elisha performed a bold, prophetic act. He threw salt in the water and proclaimed: “Thus says the Lord, ‘I have purified these waters; there shall not be from there death or unfruitfulness any longer” (NASB). His proclamation brought immediate cleansing.
This obscure story in the Old Testament offers us a picture of the gospel’s power. The message of Jesus Christ heals us. The Holy Spirit brings life where death has reigned. He neutralizes the poisons that cause spiritual barrenness. He balances the pH level so that spiritual growth and vitality is possible.
All of us would like to enjoy a healthy spiritual life. But the sad truth is that many of us, and many churches today, are barren because of hazardous additives. We have believed a different gospel—one laced with legalism, performance-based religion and salvation by works—when Christ alone is our only source of life.
Jesus Himself referred to these toxins as “the leaven of the Pharisees” (Luke 12:1). He told us that the Pharisees’ brand of religion, which looked good on the outside, was deadly—and contagious.
Have you been infected? You can take your own pH test by examining these eight characteristics of a religious spirit.
A religious spirit views God as a cold, harsh, distant taskmaster rather than an approachable, loving Father. When we base our relationship with God on our ability to perform spiritual duties, we deny the power of grace. God does not love us because we pray, read our Bibles, attend church or witness, yet millions of Christians think God is mad if they don’t perform these and other duties perfectly. As a result they struggle to find true intimacy with Jesus.
A religious spirit places emphasis on doing outward things to show others that God accepts him. We deceive ourselves into believing that we can win God’s approval through a religious dress code, certain spiritual disciplines, particular music styles or even doctrinal positions.
A religious spirit develops traditions and formulas to accomplish spiritual goals. We trust in our liturgies, denominational policies or man-made programs to obtain results that only God alone can give.
A religious spirit becomes joyless, cynical and hypercritical. This can turn a home or a church completely sour. Then, whenever genuine joy and love are expressed, this becomes a threat to those who have lost the simplicity of true faith.
A religious spirit becomes prideful and isolated, thinking that his righteousness is special and that he cannot associate with other believers who have different standards. Churches that allow these attitudes become elitist—and dangerously vulnerable to deception or cult-like practices.
A religious spirit develops a harsh, judgmental attitude toward sinners, yet those who ingest this poison typically struggle with sinful habits that they cannot admit to anyone else. Religious people rarely interact with nonbelievers because they don’t want their own superior morals to be tainted by them.
A religious spirit rejects progressive revelation and refuses to embrace change. This is why many churches become irrelevant to society. They become so focused on what God did 50 years ago that they become stuck in a time warp—and cannot move forward when the Holy Spirit begins to speak in new ways. When religious groups refuse to shift with God’s new directives, they become “old wineskins” and God must find more flexible vessels that are willing to implement His changes.
A religious spirit persecutes those who disagree with his self-righteous views and becomes angry whenever the message of grace threatens to undermine his religiosity. An angry religious person will use gossip and slander to assassinate other peoples’ character and may even use violence to prove his point. Jesus, in fact, warned His disciples: “There will even come a time when anyone who kills you will think he’s doing God a favor” (John 16:2, The Message).
If the poison of religion has seeped into your life, ask Him today to pour a fresh understanding of His grace into your barren spirit.
Psalm 55 NIV
1 Listen to my prayer, O God,
do not ignore my plea;
2 hear me and answer me.
My thoughts trouble me and I am distraught
3 because of what my enemy is saying,
because of the threats of the wicked;
for they bring down suffering on me
and assail me in their anger.
4 My heart is in anguish within me;
the terrors of death have fallen on me.
5 Fear and trembling have beset me;
horror has overwhelmed me.
6 I said, “Oh, that I had the wings of a dove!
I would fly away and be at rest.
7 I would flee far away
and stay in the desert;[c]
8 I would hurry to my place of shelter,
far from the tempest and storm.”
9 Lord, confuse the wicked, confound their words,
for I see violence and strife in the city.
10 Day and night they prowl about on its walls;
malice and abuse are within it.
11 Destructive forces are at work in the city;
threats and lies never leave its streets.
12 If an enemy were insulting me,
I could endure it;
if a foe were rising against me,
I could hide.
13 But it is you, a man like myself,
my companion, my close friend,
14 with whom I once enjoyed sweet fellowship
at the house of God,
as we walked about
among the worshipers.
15 Let death take my enemies by surprise;
let them go down alive to the realm of the dead,
for evil finds lodging among them.
16 As for me, I call to God,
and the Lord saves me.
17 Evening, morning and noon
I cry out in distress,
and he hears my voice.
18 He rescues me unharmed
from the battle waged against me,
even though many oppose me.
19 God, who is enthroned from of old,
who does not change—
he will hear them and humble them,
because they have no fear of God.
20 My companion attacks his friends;
he violates his covenant.
21 His talk is smooth as butter,
yet war is in his heart;
his words are more soothing than oil,
yet they are drawn swords.
22 Cast your cares on the Lord
and he will sustain you;
he will never let
the righteous be shaken.
23 But you, God, will bring down the wicked
into the pit of decay;
the bloodthirsty and deceitful
will not live out half their days.
But as for me, I trust in you.
James 5:16 “Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”

Spiritual Maturity Test
Lets see how teachable we are. Lets test to see how well we follow instructions.
Write down what you see in yourself and how readily you are to walk in obedience?
At the end share what you have seen in yourself and what through the Holy Spirit you will look to change about being obedient or humble?
Sharing from the prayer conference this morning on the assignment above was deep.
As we begin to look inward and search and listen we begin to see the real us.
The Holy Spirit also begins to work and show us how we need to change for the kingdom of God.
Through this exercise, we learnt that we should come before God naked ready for worship. Nakedness before God is simply stripping ourselves of our sinful nature. Jealousy, envy, malice, pride, lying, pretentiousness, favoritism, disobedience, murmuring, ungratefulness, stubborn, stiff-nakedness, just to name a few ungodly behaviors that hinder us from living a blessed life and get between us getting intimate with God. “Too much clothes”. Let us lay these things aside as we connect with God.
What is our new life showing?
Can someone see Christ within us in our smile, in our general attitude?
More than what we say it is what we do and we have to remember that our daily lives should reflect Christ.
Have a wonderful day as we grow together and mature in the kingdom of God.
Today is another day to give God glory and to reflect on what area He is trying to mature us through. As Christians, it is absolutely necessary for us to be engaged in an active working relationship with God. All of us can achieve this but there are some deliberate steps to take to ensure Godly success.
In His Presence
Let us practice to be in his presence. Set small goals and celebrate accomplishments. Share with others how you are doing in this area minutely, hourly, daily, weekly and monthly. Soon this will become a habit.
For example if you have never spent time reading the Word or praying to God.
1. Take a moment, preferably as you wake up to read a verse in the Bible
2. Talk to God about what to read and ask Him to reveal how He wants you to talk with him.
3. Listen to what is coming in your spirit or mind (Godly things according to the fruits of the spirit in Galatians 5:22-23 and Philippians 4:8)
This could be 3-5 minutes. As you continue, the time will become more and there will be a genuine desire to spend more time talking to God and reading his word. It will be like when you have fallen in love with someone and you cannot wait to see and be with that special person. The Psalmist David captured it very well in Psalm 42:1 NIV “As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God.”
Living a Godly life takes deliberate practice through the help of the Holy Spirit. Keep a journal, write your strengths in the Lord, and write your weaknesses too. Talk to him about them and take deliberate actions to hold yourself accountable in both areas.
Accountability Necessary for Growth
If there is a mentorship, discipleship, coaching or counseling program, at your church seek the Lord and actively seek to be involved in order to be delivered, set free from your past and to help with being developed at various levels in your walk. Being accountable is a necessary step for becoming mature in your Christian walk. This is not just for new believers but again it is necessary for all levels in your walk.
What have you actively done today to ensure you are walking in covenant with Him?
I love you and appreciate all that you do to enhance the kingdom of God.
I am practicing to listen more to what He is saying to me. So while doing everything, my spirit and mind is communing with him. I actively invite The Lord to be in what I do, work or play and before even engaging I will ask God, if this is his will.
I want to be a leader that is different in that even when I am pressed, cast down, neglected or rejected, righteousness and holiness will always shine through. I have come a far way in this area. In the past, I would defend myself in every way possible to ensure there are no misunderstandings where I am concerned. Today, if there is an issue and there is an opportunity for clarification, I will do so and if there is no opportunity, I leave it to God and seek him to help me understand “the why” behind the issue and “what”, His will in it for me is.
Sometimes the learning is to be still and track my growth or to see where there is a deficiency. Other times it is to teach me to listen, be patient, trust him, and be obedient or just to exercise mercy and forgiveness.
God, through the Holy Spirit is helping and I am maturing in this area daily.
I pray that today we will become closer to God and that his voice will be our guiding light. I love you and I will continue to pray for you and ask that you pray for me
1 Thessalonians 5:11 (NIV) “Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.”
I love it when I’m in the company of people that can uplift you, motivate you, and challenge you to become a much better YOU and not them or someone else.
I therefore have the honor of meeting one such person yesterday, and spent a life-changing evening with her and my best friend Trudy Ross.
Mrs Debbie Miller-Curtis, thank you so much for your passion, diligence, and obedience to our Lord, for I am a life that is changed as a result.
You are the perfect example of what a Christian should be.
Morning Prayer was a huge blessing this morning. Sister Naudia Bennett led for the first time and the word came from 2 Timothy 3:1-5 (KJV)
“3 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.”
She encouraged us to trust in the promises of God and remain faithful. Reflect on each milestone in our life and see if God was present and how did we get to the next level?
Was there doubt or was there total trust? If not, there is an opportunity to ask God for help as we approach another milestone. Keep our eyes on him, study his word and seek to live by it.
In the end she read 2 Timothy 3:16-17 “16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.”
We thank God for the new person that joined. His name Eric Miller. Thanks you Father for answering our prayers to have men step up in the Kingdom of God. It’s very attractive to see a man sold-out for Christ…
Mark 16:14-20 “14 Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat , and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen . 15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved ; but he that believeth not shall be damned . 17 And these signs shall follow them that believe ; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; 18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. 19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God. 20 And they went forth , and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following . Amen.”
The group went to Camden today to feed. As usual, it was a blessing. Before we could start there was a line of people waiting for us. The welcome was different and we thank God. We have prayed for the people to be receptive and today they were. It was easy to share the word of God, hug, kiss, and just listen to the variety of stories.
We served over 100 people coffee and donuts. Today, it was “very different” we talked with several people and heard some stories that help us know that God is working things out even when things seem down. The overarching message is that his mercy and grace availeth much. We have a lot to be thankful for…
It was a pleasure connecting with Leroy, his family and Tyrell and his friends. They have a lot to share and sometimes just need a listening ear and a face that smiles and reminds them of hope.
At the end, we prayed with several persons; read the word of God with them and lend a listening ear, which for the homeless can be rare.
Father we thank you for the opportunity to share your word with the less fortunate. Father we pray that from this day forward your word will take root in their lives and there will be a change as these people seek after you. Thank you for Camden City and the change that is taking place right now.
Father, I just want to take the time to say thank you for favor in every area of my life. Today Father, we celebrate over 8006 viewers to Prayer Works Evangelism Outreach Ministries blog page over 113 countries.
Lord that is totally your doing. I am grateful and humbled.
Team please help me say thank you to the Lord.
1My son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, 2for they will prolong your life many years and bring you peace and prosperity.3Let love and faithfulness never leave you;bind them around your neck,write them on the tablet of your heart.4Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man.5Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. 7Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil. 8This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones. 9Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops;10then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine. 11My son, do not despise the Lord’s discipline, and do not resent his rebuke, 12because the Lord disciplines those he loves, as a father the son he delights in. 13Blessed are those who find wisdom, those who gain understanding, 14for she is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold. 15She is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her. 16Long life is in her right hand; in her left hand are riches and honor. 17Her ways are pleasant ways, and all her paths are peace. 18She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her; those who hold her fast will be blessed. 19By wisdom the Lord laid the earth’s foundations, by understanding he set the heavens in place; 20by his knowledge the watery depths were divided, and the clouds let drop the dew. 21My son, do not let wisdom and understanding out of your sight, preserve sound judgment and discretion; 22they will be life for you, an ornament to grace your neck. 23Then you will go on your way in safety, and your foot will not stumble. 24When you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet. 25Have no fear of sudden disaster or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked, 26for the Lord will be at your side and will keep your foot from being snared. 27Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to act. 28Do not say to your neighbor, “Come back tomorrow and I’ll give it to you”—when you already have it with you. 29Do not plot harm against your neighbor, who lives trustfully near you. 30Do not accuse anyone for no reason— when they have done you no harm.31Do not envy the violent or choose any of their ways. 32For the Lord detests the perverse but takes the upright into his confidence. 33The Lord’s curse is on the house of the wicked, but he blesses the home of the righteous. 34He mocks proud mockers but shows favor to the humble and oppressed. 35The wise inherit honor, but fools get only shame.
The Lord is sending a WARNING to us as to why it is so important that we make sure that every day we are SMACK BANG in the centre of his perfect WILL for our lives. Unless you are asleep, you should clearly be able to see the BLATENT warfare that we are up against which is hitting us from all angles and every direction in society right now.
This moment and it is not just us (the children of God) but also everyone who is being AFFECTED or INFECTED by the continual onslaught of the enemy’s new strategies and attacks. Remember the word of God says (Eph 6:12) “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms”!
There is a careful and strategic plan of attack against anyone who does not comply with the agenda of Satan in his long-term goal of taking as many people to HELL as possible and the destruction of the children of God at all costs. (John 10:10)
There are daily news reports surfacing on the CONTAMUNATION of various popular FOOD ITEMS & DRINKS and it should be old news to you that certain drinking water has been compromised for a long time. We are being attacked from the air with “CHEM-TRAILS”.
I just yesterday read an article that exposed the FACT that high volumes of led were found in popular MAKE UP lines which can cause CANCER & DISEASE yet the Lord is saying many are OBLIVIOUS and continue to be led by their FLESH and not by the Holy Spirit.
Have you noticed that there is now a record number of women shaving or cutting their hair in the pursuit of going natura! Let me ask you a question, do you think that it’s just for fashion or a trend or is there a deeper SPIRITUAL MEANING behind what we are seeing being manifest before our very eyes?
The chemicals that we use on our bodies are being used against us at a greater level than ever before. The rate of disease is growing and there are now many new diseases being found that are IMMUNE to ANTIBIOTICS, so what will happen when there are no longer any suitable medications left?
Satan has every angle covered. The Air, various FOODS, certain WATERS and various MAKE UP lines have all been COMPROMISED to some extent. I have even read that they have put hormones in certain urban clothing lines that can cause men to be more EFFEMINATE and women to be more MASCULINE and the things I have listed above are just to name but a few of the things that are happening RIGHT NOW.
God is saying to us today that the only way that we will escape the plans of Satan to try and DESTROY us in these last days is to CONTINUALLY make sure that we are in the PERFECT WILL OF GOD for our lives and also make sure we are quick to REPENT!
The word of God says (Mark 16:18) “They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover”. When the apostle Paul was bitten by the snake and wasn’t harmed it was because he was in the perfect center of the WILL OF GOD.
There is no more time to be unsure or wishy washy. Satan’s attacks are relentless and they will not stop until Christ returns. The Holy Spirit is leading us in many new directions because of what the enemy is doing. Make sure you ask daily about food and the things listed, pray for direction and even bless the clothes you buy because it is EVERYWHERE. “Those that are led by the Spirit of God are the sons of God.” It is time to make sure you are a SON, because RIGHT NOW it is surely means the difference between LIFE & DEATH.
Father we give you praise today, on a day, which was not promised, and some sadly never made it through. We thank you that you still stand by us even in the midst of despair and through the wicked acts of those who continue to plan and plot the harm and destruction of our brothers and sisters!
Father we ask you to have your way in protecting and guiding your children who hear your voice so they can avoid any and all danger and also alert others to what is ahead. Father we pray strength for those of us who have been personally affected by the events that have unfolded over the last 24 hours and we pray that you would continue to provide the peace that surpasses all understanding in the midst of tragedy, uncertainty and death and destruction in Jesus name.
Father according to the power and authority you have given us as your children we bind up the spirit of death and premature death in Jesus name. We bind up the spirit of violence and destruction, we bind up all calamities, all murderous spirits of malice and discord, all premeditated wickedness and assignments intended to hurt or destroy your children.
Father, we bind up all the plans of Satan to further steal kill and destroy. We bind up jealousy and depravity, rage and anarchy in Jesus mighty name.
Father, we cancel every assignment against your children and we speak that every plot will be uncovered and exposed for your glory. We come against and curse the root of all the demonic intentions of people trying to benefit from this disaster, Father delay and frustrate their plans of wickedness and control, shut down their operations and dismantle what they have already tried to do in Jesus name.
Father we bind the strong man over Boston right now in faith and according to the Holy Scriptures and we lose the angelic light from heaven into the lives of everyone affected and the Holy Spirits power into their hearts causing them to be strengthened supernaturally for your glory as we read this prayer on their behalf. Father forewarn your children who could possibly be in harm’s way in the aftermath of these events, give a stronger level of discernment to your prophets, intercessors and prayer warriors at this time so they can see what is ahead and warn others.
Father we thank you for your word that says that you never leave us nor forsake us. Thank you for being our only hope in times of death and destruction, uncertainty and wickedness Father, we love you and without your protection we are nothing, we give you the glory and the honor and in Jesus name we pray this prayer to you Jehovah God and in Jesus name we pray.
Some people told me to walk away and get rid of the stress!!! so have been talking with the mortgage company. We worked out a payment arrangement and I did not consummate the agreement …I though for sure its over now but a mail came from the Mortgage company and I called them and they worked another arrangement. I had 30 days to make the payment. I had 2/3 and needed the other 1/3 I had no idea where I was gonna get it but I knew in my heart I was not going to ask anyone to help me. I became tired of asking for help. I was really depending on my tax returns. Well a few days later I found out that the IRS was auditing me. A couple of days before the deadline to make the payment I woke up had my devotion and went online to check my bank. My eyes almost popped out of my head there was so much money in my account I almost fainted. The IRS had put a portion of my returns ……the exact amount that I needed to make the payment and the extras I needed to mail it off!!! hallelujah!!!! Thank you Lord!!
Now I really started praying m ore fervently because I had a deadline in which to get the person. Many persons came and loved the place but did not come back. On the final day the agent called and told me she had a family. They looked at the house and told her they wanted to move in 5 days……..they moved in last Saturday and praise God…everything is on track…the arrangement has been accepted. Truly our God is an on time God!!! He was right on time here and I have learnt that I REALLY need to just trust him even if in my natural state of mind I cant see anything happening. He truly is working behind the scenes…….I also found out that my tenant had just lost her home in a foreclosure……..and that is the person he chose to help me to save mine…..how awesome is that!!!!!!
I also had asked for prayer for a new job….that has not materialized yet BUT I have gotten many clients since for my Insurance business. I was able to reinstate my license and now I really want to focus on my Insurance which would give me a lot more time to focus on other things….so please help me pray in this direction. I believe that this is where I should be……
God I love you!! Thank you for loving me, saving me, protecting me, caring for me, blessing me, providing for me, covering me everyday…you are AWESOME!!!
God wants you to know on this day that when He is building his glory inside us it is not necessarily, what we would expect with our natural minds! We start to think about how He works to develop that power within and we may immediately picture ourselves laid out prostrate. Laboring long hours in prayer and intercession or going on 40 day fasts or to spiritual retreats and all that stuff that certainly does help with the process, but actually the reality I am learning is a lot less deep, because it is already done.
Being human we tend to want to justify our works by looking at what we do as a way to judge what God is doing deep on the inside of us! Now, please do not misunderstand me. God does lead us to do things for his glory and the things mentioned above like prayer, intercession and fasting do edify us and are very advantageous to our walk with the Lord but there is still a work going on deep down within our spirit man that has nothing to do with anything that we could contribute. This is the work of our savior Jesus Christ on the cross and our now divine exchange! (2 Pet 1:3)
It often feels like nothing is happening when we are going about our lives, doing the standard normal stuff that needs to be done, daily. We are perusing the will of God, going to work and to church as usual, somehow we fit in everything else that needs to be done and we could be forgiven for thinking that because we are not feeding the 5000, raising the dead or parting the red sea that nothing major is really happening! (Rom 2:10) But God wants you to know that YOU ARE WRONG!
The real exchange of God’s glory being given to us happened when (Jesus) willingly gave his life on our behalf on the cross! However, over time our Father is able to build up that same glory inside us. With every conversation, every vexation, every situation or problem at work, every family dilemma, every financial problem or issue, every test of integrity at church or at home, every monthly pay check, every prayer, every choice and every divine exchange, every test and trial, situation and circumstance to name but a few. He uses everything in our lives to help cultivate and develop the process of steadily building the glory of Christ deep down within our spirit. (Rom 11:36)
There is nothing that God does not and cannot use to help build us, even our dreams and visions and the inner revelations we receive serve as an expression or an outlet for what God is up to when all we are doing is perusing his will and going about our normal day to day routines. The word of God say’s “Don’t judge anything before the APPOINTED time” (1 Cor 4:5) because while you are in PROCESS you will not be able to see what is really going on because it looks like nothing is changing. (Rom 8:28)
When a butterfly is in the cocoon you cannot see what is taking place but when it is RELEASED, you cannot miss the TRANSFORMATION, it is clear for all to see what was happening in the hidden season and it’s a vision of BEAUTY.
Be encouraged that God is at work behind the scenes in our spirits as we speak regardless of what you perceive because of what Christ has already done! When you can’t see it praise him anyway because when your time comes you will be a sight to behold and truly UNRECOGNISABLE, Shalom!
I Decree and Declare over this month that all things have become new in accordance to 2 Corinthians 5:17. All unresolved issues and pending situations, all of the gifts of God and prophetic revelations, all situations pertaining to your destiny and your calling, all family issues of restoration and all opportunities for spiritual growth and expansion have become like new over your life.
I speak blessings where there has been drought, supernatural prosperity where there has been lack and new vision for the vision where there has been blindness. Father, this month set out your key adjectives in the life of my precious friend and download your blueprint that was predestined for her, give my friend clear direction and fresh focus for the tasks ahead.
Send confirmation of all that you need her to do to make maximum impact for your kingdom in the ministry, her job, her community, her family and marriage. In Jesus name, Father, give my friend a broader kingdom perspective and help her to apply what she had learned daily for your glory.
Father, bless my friend today and every day and I ask this prayer in the mighty name of Jesus.
Everyone wants to receive the BREAKTHROUGH, FAVOUR, SUPERNATURAL PROVISION and MIRACLES SIGNS & WONDERS but start talking about the SUFFERING in proportion to the blessings of God in your walk with the Lord and suddenly we have all developed SELECTIVE HEARING!
Jesus wants you to go back to the WORD today and really look at the lives of any of his servants that did great works on the earth. Where there are abundant blessings there is also suffering of some kind to go with it. Suffering QUALIFIES YOU, it conditions your heart and firmly fixes the agenda of God into your spirit so you are deemed worthy to walk in the greatness of your calling.
There is something unique about the hardships and trials and the tests that suffering will bring that can teach you more about yourself than any other situation you will ever experience. When we are not saved and we suffer needlessly for Satan’s agenda we look at it from the perspective of life being unfair or we resign our plight to Karma or fate!
When we come to Christ and we suffer just as much if not more we start to complain and get dismayed by the REAL WALK WITH GOD, thinking that God doesn’t love us or start doubting our whole walk altogether. James the apostle said “Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.
Suffering is the NORM!
If Jesus suffered so shall we but instead of complaining REJOICE (Rom 5:3-5) because you have become worthy to take on the sufferings of Christ! It is an honor to be the furnace of affliction (Isa 48:10) because it is there that God’s glory can truly be revealed and you are being tested as GOLD! (1Pet 1:7)
Isaiah 57:1-2 (KJV)
The righteous perishes,
And no man takes it to heart;
Merciful men are taken away,
While no one considers
That the righteous is taken away from evil.
2 He shall enter into peace;
They shall rest in their beds,
Each one walking in his uprightness.
You may have noticed that the father is being a lot stricter with you and that is because He wants you to understand that in this hour it is very important that your WORDS match up with your ACTIONS in validation of your FAITH!
We are in the END -TIMES where people are in flat out rebellion and willfully do not want to serve the Lord! Music, T.V. Films and the media in general are all working in opposition to the word of God and his commands, which has shaped a generation that is inevitably, being groomed to serve in the ANTICHRIST system.
We all have family members and friends who are resistant to hearing the word or being saved and though we pray and try to drop a word here and there, they just like us will have to make a choice whether or not to follow the Lord sooner or later. I say all of that to say this, our lives and the words we speak and our actions in many cases may be the closest thing that some people will ever get to the BIBLE.
We are a walking epistle!
People who cannot receive Christ for whatever reason are watching the things we do and they are weighing up their options to see if they could walk the walk and believe like us. We must more than anything start to practice what we PREACH and if we are not be honest about it by being transparent rather than unintentionally leading anyone astray or into discouragement!
The word of God say is that troubles and tests will surely come but we must not let them become an obstacle for ourselves or anyone else around us. Your consistency in following the word of God over the doctrines of the world is like a banner over your life for all to see.
The REMNANT of God is the ones who preach from the gospel and apply it to their lives, living the word, breathing the word, dreaming the word! No one is perfect and trust me we all fall short but we have to constantly be aware of how we live and what we do.
Sometimes, you not partaking in certain things speak more than just telling people what is right and wrong. We need to be men and women of the WORD of God everyday so our whole lives becomes a tool to evangelize our unsaved family members, friends, work colleagues and brothers and sisters in the ministry who need to see a good example.
God is separating the wheat from the chaff; you are now being able to see, who the REMNANT is as opposed to the ones who follow the worldly church system. The Lord says my sons are the ones who are led by my spirit and my friends are the ones who do as I say!
Psalm 27:14 “Wait on the LORD: be of good courage , and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait , I say, on the LORD.”
Hey friend, one of the hardest things you will have to do for God is to WAIT! You may be surprised to hear that but waiting is a test of every piece of scripture within you.
Every bit of the word that you think you understand and the practical expression of how you translate that into the way you live your life while you are waiting! The word of God says that those who wait on the Lord will renew their strength!
Strength, is often built-in hardships, adversities, challenges, and the inevitable tests which come with being a child of God. God wants to know if you will still praise him when you cannot see anything! Will you still demonstrate the fruits of the spirit when you know your blessing is delayed!
Can He still trust you to be faithful over the little that He has already given you when you have no idea of when you are going to get the breakthrough?
Is it more about what you want him to do for you or is your heart his regardless?
There are many of God’s children who have been promised some MAJOR BLESSINGS but due to the size of it God held it up to make sure that your hearts were still clean and you really love him for who He is as opposed to what He can provide!
Your character, integrity, humility and motives have all been put through the furnace of affliction while you were being stretched to receive what God has promised you. There are times when you have even said to God that you no longer care as long as He remains in your life you will serve him anyway!
So I want to say to you this evening that you have passed your test, the door is open and it will soon be time for you to go, don’t get complacent at this juncture.
Expect the UNEXPECTED & STAND! THIS IS YOUR TIME!
Father I pray over my friends and speak life into every dead situation that they face, and Just like you asked your son if the dry bones could live, you want my friends to know that everything that looks dead in their lives can still live through your resurrection power that still works today!
Father your promises over our lives has always been yeah and Amen. Yeah and Amen to what looks out of our reach, yeah and Amen to what looks dead, yeah and Amen to what is impossible for us but not for you, yeah and Amen to what, we are still waiting on but you will manifest it at the appointed time!
Father, thank you that we are co-heirs with Christ and a royal priesthood; set apart to reign with you now this second and when your kingdom comes.
Father you have created each of us with the unlimited potential to express your glory for your glory. You have placed within us the Holy Spirit who teaches all things and leads us into all truth so we can complete our assignments and do the greater works right now, today that our savior Jesus spoke of.
Father, shake up anyone who has lost sight of the immense power that you have given them to change the nations, communities, workplaces, ministries, families and situations.
If Jesus heeled the sick, delivered the demon possessed, raised the dead, brought about revival, and walked in miracles signs and wonders then so shall we because his life was an example and a blueprint to follow and observe.
Father help my friends to break out of the box of any limitation that has been placed upon them by themselves or this world so that they can walk as Jesus walked and be a sign and a wonder in this generation and be about their Fathers business!
Father, I Decree and Declare, that my friends will walk at greater levels in the supernatural right where they stand as they read this, give them a kingdom perspective in terms of your dynamos power.
Let them have a real experience of your shekinah glory that will change them and perfect them causing a domino effect in their families, their workplaces, their communities, in their ministries and bring salvation to the ones assigned to their lives to be saved!
The Father wants you to know today my friends that He loves you with an everlasting love that goes far deeper then you could ever understand right now, you are his blessed creation who He desires more than anything to have intimate fellowship with.
“Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength.
Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.” (NIV)
Where do I start… Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you keep asking God..WHEN? When is this gonna change, why is this happening, why is it happening to me…well for quite a while that right there was me. At one point I began to think I was annoying God. Then guess what happened? I began to take notice of people around me and how much louder they must have been screaming God why me and when will THIS stop? I noticed I was drawn to a place where I always found my self in prayer on the behalf of these people. The more I did the more I saw something else God wanted me to do, not for me but for someone else. Mind you my situation had not changed but he had me busy doing and focusing on other stuff I didn’t have the time to be focused on me. Guys when I tell you God is a God of HIS time he is!!!!
Let me fill you in some more, I recently migrated to the USA and believe me when I tell you I cried to go home more than anyone else that had taken this road. I was suddenly without a job and in a totally new culture. I applied to every job l could find, nothing happened ( it was during this time I think I became annoying to him…*why me Lord??* every second of the day. I learned during this time if it is not Gods time and his will it will not happen.
Fast forward to today I had totally stop stressing about my jobless situation and was busy focusing on what I could do in his kingdom. You know what? That’s all God wanted me to do , handle his business and he will take care of ours.
I had started a event planning company back home but didn’t think it would go anywhere here…mind you this is my passion, its what I love to do. Right when I wasn’t looking God was lining up everything to fall into place to show not just me when we let everything go and trust him what great thing he can do. He placed people in my life that was about to take things to another level it would blow minds..he reminded me of my dreams,my passion and reminded me that it was not dead it was just sleeping waiting on the RIGHT TIME and trust me until he says its over it isn’t
I am sitting here getting ready to step out with this company and I am still in awe of how God brought it into place. Take a look at this http://www.trustarrdesigns.com/ and just look at how big our God is. He brought people into my life to fulfill his will and not only in my life but the persons he was lining up. From where I’m sitting the sky is the limit from here , with God as my pilot though.
In closing I will leave with you this: We were put on this earth to praise him, to be about his business. It is when we do this and let go of stressing about our daily situations and trust him ,we will see that he has always been about ours.
Hello my friends, May the Lord Jesus Christ bless you bountifully today as you travel through your day with Him.
FAITH believes in what God said to you or through His word without the presence of doubt in your mind. It is, “the substance of things hoped for without seeing the evidence of it.”
Where does it come from?
It comes from The ALMIGHTY Himself. “For God has given to every man/woman the measure of FAITH.” Every person born a Human Being has faith.
“Without FAITH it is impossible to please God.” It is self-explanatory, only faith can move God and He rewards it well.
It pleases God when He sees the extent of your faith. God wants you to come to Him with a mind cleared of doubt.
What is Mustard-seed FAITH?
It`s small but enough, NOT little as some may think. That`s the devil`s trick. If you have it you can move mountains.
Jesus said that, “A double-minded person is unstable in all their ways, James 1:8 KJV.” “Let not that man think that he can get anything from the Lord.”
This was Jesus saying! Ever wondered why you seem to not be getting anything from the Lord after praying?
That`s it right there!

Dear Lord when I think of your goodness and mercy over my life I am overjoyed.
My heart is glad and is full of expressions of praise and thanksgiving. You are my rock and my fortress and in you I am comforted.
Thank you Father for all you have given me and for fulfilling the promises you have for me. Day in and nigh out I see you in my life.
You keep coming through for me and my promise is that I will serve you with every breath that I take.
Father Jesus, you have blessed me beyond measures. My cup is overflowing.
You have prepared a feast for me in the presence of my enemies and today my enemies are rejoicing with me because they have seem you living through me.
I am forever grateful and I will sing praises unto you and bless your name at all times. Sure you are good and your mercy is forever.
Lord you sought me out to bless me I cannot contained the joy you placed within my heart.
I must tell somebody that you have been a great God.
Thank you Lord! for keeping me, in those days, when things were dark and gloomy. Thanks for the testimonies after testimonies in those trying moments.
I have found the answer I learnt how to pray.
Lord, I love you and again I am grateful.
Please keep me humble in all that I do. Help me to walk in purpose and to never lose sight of who you are in me.
All success comes from you and I thank you for your favor over my life.
I am truly blessed and highly favored by you God.

For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Behold what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us.
For today when the world is celebrating that one day for love, I pray you experience this love that is an everlasting love an unconditional love that knows no bounds.
Be blessed today everyone and share love!
As we celebrate love around the world, my heart goes out for the ones that are lonely and will even be pushed to desperate measures because of the lack thereof.
I pray this morning that God visits them wherever they are and that they too can experience not a one-day but a forever love.
Imagine that, FOREVER!!
Happy Valentine’s Day
Our prayer meeting was a blessing this morning. Andrea led the worship and God used her to speak to our hearts.
The essence of her message was in every situation that we are in God allows it for his glory.
He wants us to be more like him and therefore struggles, mishaps and unfortunate situations along with great and pleasant ones, are all part of the master’s plan.
His perfect will for our lives.

Thanks to all the supportive members. God is surely broadening our territories. We thank him for the increase.
We look for to seeing you tomorrow where Faith will lead. Come with praise and be expecting a mighty shifting in your life.
Prayer changes the way you see God in your current situation.
God wants to hear from you today!!!
Keep the conversations going!
It is in His presence that we discover the meaning of happiness. Allow God‘s beauty that He created within you show – for all to see!
In Your presence is fullness of joy.
Everything beautiful begins with God.
He has made everything beautiful in its time. Ecclesiastes 3:11
Peace be with you! Ever since the resurrection, this has been My watchword to those who yearn for Me. As you sit quietly, let My Peace settle over you and enfold you in My loving Presence.
To provide this radiant Peace for you, I died a criminal’s death. Receive My Peace abundantly and thankfully. It is a rare treasure, dazzling in delicate beauty yet strong enough to withstand all onslaughts.
John 20:19, 21; John 14:27

Great news team
This is a new application for prayer request. The developer Bo Yan had reached out to PWEOM for us to test and give feedback.
I have attached the link for easy reference:
Let me know your thoughts on this application in order help Bo Yan perfect it.
In all that we do, more than anything else God is looking to have us completely.
He wants us to come boldly to him and to seek after him as the deer panteth for the waters.
He wants to be the center of our hearts and the reason behind our existence.
God wants us all, holding nothing back.
Yes, He wants everything and he loves us just the way we are.
The songwriter says he looks beyond our faults and saw our needs.
How do I start giving God my all?
Our prayer meetings continue to be a blessing. Every morning at 5:00 am, we have a circle of people consisting of fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, friends, husbands, wives, grandmothers, aunt, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.
In order words people from all lifestyles join the conference for prayer and prays to God.
It is simple!
They earnestly seek after God and make their request known to him. He interns multiple, increase, broaden the circle and change lives.
Nevertheless, in the end the encouragement was, nothing can separate us from Jesus’ love.
What an assurance.
Therefore, be encouraged and ask the Holy Spirit to make your heart be like the heart of Jesus.
He is looking for a broken and a contrite heart.
What happens? God takes over and the individual follows.
As I have heard from my senior pastor ” What needs to change” for God to get the first fruit of the day?
Is it exercising self-control one of the fruits of the spirit?
Ask yourself the question and be honest to answer what do I give God?
Does he even get anything from the day?
Am I too busy where I cannot find any time to spend with Him.
He wants to hear from each and every one of us. Please start by praying and reading his word.
How we start our day
Our morning prayer meeting was a huge blessing again. Every morning it is a different experience. God continues to use ordinary people to accomplish great things in his Kingdom.
Faith led the group this morning. The word came from Philippians 4:13-14.
“13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,
14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. The take away is to prepare our minds for battle. We have to press in the spirit to defeat the plans of the enemy.”
Thanks again for the support and your obedience to pray everyday. Our newest members, Viris Hart, Naudia Bennet, and Auntie Carol.
See you tomorrow at 5:00 AM. Dial 209-255-1000 enter passcode 532238.
Analice will lead.
I urge you to start your day with talking to the Lord and he will Pilot you through the day.
Psalm 51:1-19 (KJV)
2 Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.
3 For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.
4 Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest.
5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.
6 Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.
7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
8 Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice.
9 Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.
10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.
12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.
13 Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.
14 Deliver me from blood guiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.
15 O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise.
16 For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering.
17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
19 Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering: then shall they offer bullocks upon thine altar.

The Group meets for 1.5 hour to have coffee/tea and “Bread.” (The Word of God.) We share what’s on our hearts, testimonies and pray over the people requesting prayers through the group, Prayer Works Cafe, online through the different social media.
I prayed, quoted Scripture, fasted, all things I thought would get God to move in the way I wanted Him to. I thought that having worship music going 24/7, attending the prayer meetings at church and joining prayer groups on Facebook would get Him to move how I wanted.
Re-read the last part of the previous sentence. “Get Him to move how I wanted”. And THAT was the problem. It was based on what “
I” wanted, not His will. I (like many of us) found a Scripture that lined up with my particular want & latched on to it. Please understand me, there is nothing wrong with holding on to a Scripture & asking in faith. But what WE want cannot be more important than what HE wants.
He sees our situation through a lens and view that our minds cannot begin to grasp. He sees the prayer request and us through perfect eyes. In addition to that, He not only sees the immediate impact of granting/not granting the prayer request, but the long term, ETERNAL ramifications.
Imagine with me for a moment: You have a 16 year old, newly licensed driver who comes to you saying “Dad (or Mom…I’m a man, so I use “Dad”), for my first car, I would like a Porsche 911 Turbo.” You not only own a Porsche dealership and could easily make this request happen, but the joy that would spread across your child’s face would be a beautiful thing.
But, you know your child. Although there is nothing wrong with a Porsche 911 Turbo in and of itself, that same piece of machinery with an inexperienced driver behind the wheel has the potential to not only destroy the driver, but any passengers in the vehicle and other drivers/pedestrians out on the road.
Our Lord knows us better than we know ourselves. He also knows that many times we will pray for something permanent as a reaction to temporary discomfort, even if that discomfort is actually for our benefit, and will bring us something far better than what we want or THINK we want.
I remember recently praying for a particular job. I wanted this job because of the salary it provided, and also because I thought I would be able to handle working the overnight/graveyard shift, freeing me up for a 2nd part time job during the day. I would have grown sick of the duties in this job in rather short order, and probably would have had a nervous breakdown working a full time graveyard shift job and another job. But all I could see was the pay.
My Father in Heaven answered this prayer with a resounding NO on a Wednesday. I tell you…I was UPSET! Have you ever seen a 31 year old man throw a temper tantrum? God did that day. It was not the finest moment of my walk. I calmed down, and began looking online. I looked for the next four days. On that 4th day, a Saturday, I was scouring job postings and found one that I had missed. I did a double take, because the position for this particular posting paid MORE, offered greater stability and fewer hours. On top of all that, I instantly knew (based on the description) I would like it far more than the previous job I just “HAD to have”. I prayed, put it in His hands, applied, interviewed and GOT THE JOB. I have been with this company since October 8, 2012 and have NEVER enjoyed going to work as much as I do now. Each day, I don’t “have to go to work”. I GET to go to work! I know the Lord blessed me with this position, but also the joy that comes with diligent work unto Him. To top it off, the company called a meeting the other day where they announced “We’ve decided to give you (the staff) 9 additional days of paid time off”.
The point is this. Had the Lord answered my prayer my way, He could have orchestrated it for my good. It could have been okay. But when He answered my prayer for stable employment in HIS way, it was, is and has been “exceedingly and abundantly more than all I could ask or think” (Ephesians 3:20).
I close with a command. Get your Bible and go to Proverbs chapter 3, verses 5 and 6. Memorize them and believe in the truth of those words MORE than you believe in gravity.
I love you.
“Debbie –I just renewed my oath of office to serve as your president for four more years.
Thank you for making this possible. It’s an honor to be your president.
Now it’s time to finish what we started — let’s get going.
This is what sets this President apart from his predecessors. A simple thank you note, a simply way of including the grass root people and making them feel integrated in the process to uncovering a better United States America.
The work we have begun is not completed and though we might not be in agreement with everything, he said or does.
Let us join hands and heart and pray for him and his administration. He has to lead through tough times and as a leader myself it is difficult to lead in my tiny role when there is any form of dissension or division.
Can you image him in his role as the President of the United States?
Please join our team of prayer warriors from Prayer Work Evangelism Outreach Ministries and start praying for our President, all those in authority and our Nation under God.
The word of God encourage us to do so.
1 Timothy 2: 1 “I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.”
Hebrews 12:2 “looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
My face is shining upon you, beaming out Peace that transcends understanding. You are surrounded by a sea of problems, but you are face to Face with Me, your Peace. As long as you focus on Me, you are safe. If you gaze too long at the myriad problems around you, you will sink under the weight of your burdens. When you start to sink, simply call out “Help me, Jesus!” and I will lift you up.
The closer you live to Me, the safer you are. Fix your eyes on Me, the One who never changes.
Philippians 4:7, Matthew 14:30, Hebrews 12:2
Excerpt from the January 15 devotional of Jesus Calling, by Sarah Young taken from
Well, well, well, God is great. Prayer Meeting was a blast. People were in purpose. They could not wait on their turn to pray. What a blessing?
Andrea Randolph thanks for your leadership, and for the word Isaiah 55:8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.”
Walk in the fullness of his love, think pure, surround yourself with Godly positive people, and begin to live in the overflow, change the way you think if it is not according to Philippians 4:8. “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things”. Focus on Jesus and leave the outcome of your prayers to him.
We are looking forward to you joining soon. Start your day with prayer. Be grateful for all is blessings. Look back over your life and find the top ten reasons for your joy. Write them down, share with a friend, post on your page and give God the Glory…
Father I thank you for waking me up today, I thank you that I am clothes in my right mind. I thank you for food on my table and shoes on my feet. I thank you for my family and my friends. I thank you that I have a job. I thank you for my car. I thank you that I can come to you and pray. I thank you for my health. Lord, I could go on and on and the more I find things to be grateful for is the more I recognize that I am blessed beyond measures.
Lord please continue to change me from the inside out.
2 Chronicles 7:15 “Now my eyes shall be open, and my ears attentive unto the prayer that is made in this place.”
It is so important to be in purpose as a child of God and to know God’s voice. In this world of leadership, everyone will come with what God said and what he did not say. Moreover, if you do not know What He’s saying then you will become confused.
I was talking with another leader the other day and she mentioned, “Many people has prophesied over my life and today I don’t think I can deal with anyone else prophesying over my life.”
The prophesies are far from the truth that God has for her.
This brings me to the place of asking the question do we frequently hear from God.
How does he speak?
In addition, what do we do when He is not speaking?
All the above happen at different stages of our walk in the Lord. Sometimes we hear him on a regular basis. Other times He is silent or he is speaking through unfamiliar medium and channels.
Therefore, if we are looking for him to be in a bond fire we might miss him in the tiny spark. We might be looking for a mighty roar and miss the still small voice.
As Christians, we need to develop a healthy walk with the Lord and this walk is one where we are spending quality time in his presence. This includes reading the word, listening, fasting, and praying, but not excludes other Godly practices that the Holy Spirit will reveal as the relationship grows and gets deeper.
When we do this, we hear him clearly and he speaks softly. He will create moments for us to become familiar with his voice in small and big things. So for example He will say go right and then doubt creeps in and one goes left. In the wrong turn, His voice will say I say right (training). On the other hand, he will show a situation and say speak this or pray this and if one is not quick then he will ask someone else and then there is a reminder that “God” has spoken.
In my opinion, I think he does this for us not to doubt when he speak and for us to act swiftly in the spirit. Another thing is that God is always speaking and when he is not he has already spoken and the answer remains the same. In that moment, he teaches patience and gives rest while we wait.
If our relationship with him is shaky and we are not in fellowship with him then it will become frustrating for us to be hearing others say God said, this or that.
It is easy to hear from God but it takes discipline to form the right behaviors to be in a place to hear and to move past the noise. God is looking for us to have a relationship with him. He is looking to commune with man like in the olden days. He wants to speak but most of the time we are doing all the speaking.
What is getting in the way of us hearing God?
There is a “peace” about when he speaks and when we walk in obedience. God will use people to speak to you but he wants to speak directly to you too. Be proactive about the kind of life you want to live for Jesus.
Someone encouraged me a few years ago to start reading my bible regularly, create a time and a specific place where I meet the Lord daily. Replace ungodly behaviors with godly behaviors, find a mentor to hold your hand as your grow.
Now it is my time to pass it on… I urge you today to do the same. God is waiting to talk with you and more so to share secrets with you.
How did Jesus live each day?
Is it really possible for us to live as He lived?
Here are five things to consider:
The first is His dependency.
Jesus lived each day dependent upon His Father. We can also live each day in complete dependency upon the Lord. He is our strength, our life, our sufficiency, and He is the source of all we need.
The second is His faithfulness.
Jesus lived each day in faithfulness to what His Father called Him to do.As followers of Jesus Christ we can be faithful to what God has called us to do and do His will whole-heartedly.”
James 1:12 Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.

To God be the glory great things he has done. We are the hands, the feet, mouths, the ears, and the eyes of Jesus. He can use anyone to carry out his will why not be available for him to use you. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you find your purpose in the kingdom of God.
A big thank you from the group for all your support in prayers and otherwise. Please continue to seek the Lord for ways you can support this ministry.
Unless otherwise specified, all Bible verses come from the New King James Version (NKJV).
The text for today is found in Romans 8:28. It’s a verse that we’re all familiar with. But many people misinterpret it. We often hear (especially when going through a storm), “All things work together for good”. What is missing is the rest of that verse. The entire text reads “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose”.
This is a verse limited to those who “love God, the called according to His purpose”. So, this would seem to be limited to those who are believers and followers of Jesus Christ.
But how can we say that ALL things work together for good? Don’t tragedies take place? What about when things go wrong? Is God really working out all things for my good? My separation and divorce? Was that good?
Comforting my crying son each time he comes over to my house? Is that good?
YES. Either everything that comes from the Word of God is true, or everything is false. There is no middle ground.
It’s an inevitable fact of human life that: A) You’re going through a storm,
B) You just came out of a storm or
C) You’re about to enter a storm.
But how do we handle this? If we don’t have a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, there can be a pervasive sense of hopelessness. But we as believers have hope. Upon our conversions, the Holy Spirit came to dwell within us. The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
Hopelessness is NOT one of those things.
The Lord has said that ALL, not some, not most, but ALL things work together for our good. And even set an example of this.
The greatest man to ever walk the planet was brutalized, mocked and tortured before being put to death like a criminal. Oh, and His anguish is recorded in 46th verse of the 27th chapter of Matthew, where He cries out at the realization that He is completely alone. The most important relationship of His existence, severed by the weight of humanity’s sin.
I ask you…was that GOOD?
YES! Because were it not for His death, burial and eventual resurrection, sin would still be a debt hanging over the lives of each of us. We would be lost, biding time until spending eternity, separated from a God who is holy, holy, holy. Jesus’s death was the GREATEST GOOD, yet it only came about through the suffering and death of the One called by the Lord.
Be of good cheer, fellow believer. That setback in your life is often a setup by Almighty God.

“Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father.”
“In everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
1 Thessalonians 5:18
“Amen, blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might, be to our God forever and ever. Amen.”
