There are some demons that will only come out through prayer and fasting. That is why fasting is so important to every Christian.
Satan wants to test and try us, but none of this will prevail with Jesus in our lives. Seek His hand and you shall be protected.
Matthew 17:19-21 (KJV)
19 Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out?
20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.
Luke 4:4-6 (KJV)
6 And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.
7 If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine.
8 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
Lord God, please help us all have a greater desire to commune with You in prayer. May this become a heartfelt thing and not just something we do as a religious ritual. Only by having a real relationship with you, may we truly understand Your will and be drawn to do things that are extraordinary in Your sight. And God, help every Christian understand the need to fast. You were the greatest example of this act and did so for forty days. This, You did, that we may understand the need to fast. You also taught that some demons can only be cast out through prayer and fasting. And as everyone in the faith ought to be ready to fight off the demonic forces, we ought to also fast when needed. And God, You will help us know when this is necessary. Whenever the Holy Spirit is not present, I know that it is important to give you everything, including anything that is holding us back. And often times this takes a lot out of us to change in this way. That is why I am so grateful for fasting and to know that You are working through us in those moments to change us from the inside out. That way, when we come out of our fast, our Spiritual life is renewed and we are made alive again. I know that You have the power to save us all, if we just give ourselves over to You. This I know, as my life has been changed in these moments of fasting. Even many miracles have come of it. I love You Jesus. And I say these things in thy Holy Name. Amen.
Like Jesus did, we can say, “get thee behind me, Satan”. These are not just words, but come with power and authority from God. Continue Reading
James 5:16 (KJV)
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.
Friends in the faith can truly make a difference when life is on the rocks. Thank you Lord for mine.
Prayer really helps when times are hard. I give it to God for bringing such faithful friends to pray over me.
There are things that God hates. One of them is abortion. For every unborn baby killed is also shedding innocent blood.
There is no Christian in their right mind that would ever have an abortion. For they should know that this an abomination to God.
Isaiah 59:7 (KJV)
7 Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood: their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths.
Oh Lord, I pray that every woman and man involved with abortion will repent. In this prayer, I call upon every person that is involved. This means each person that is involved with the abortion laws that are being passed, the people that are pro-abortion, men that force their girlfriend or wife into having an abortion, and those woman that commit the abortion. All of these people are collectively allowing innocent blood to be shed. Lord, convict these people of their murderous deeds. Help them know that even supporting abortion is allowing it to take place. May they understand that things will never change unless the people involved are willing to change first. And God, if any one of these people truly feel like they are a Christian and a believer in You, convict them of their sins, starting today. If they truly want to believe in and follow You, may they also begin to think clearly on this matter. Help them understand that killing innocent blood is something You hate and therefore, they should hate it as well. We want to live like You Lord and not do things that dishonor You in any way. It is only our pride that gets in the way of truly living a life that honors You. I myself am willing to let go of myself and do as You say. And I pray that more people will do the same. This I pray, in Your holy Name, Jesus. Amen.
When women murder their unborn babies, their innocent blood is on their hands. They have seriously defiled their own bodies with the blood of innocent children. Continue Reading
1 Peter 5:10,11 (KJV)
10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.
11 To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
This has been a very hard day. Emotions have been all over the place. All I know is that God, my family and friend's love helps.
