Oh Lord, thank You so much for tugging at my strings, in order for me to go outside tonight. I could have very well stayed inside and been comfortable there, but instead, You had something greater in store for me and others on the streets. There were people outside my door, even at 9pm at night, ready and willing to hear the gospel message of the cross, and You knew it. So I could not get out of the house any sooner than I did, but then see these people right outside my door, on the sidewalk across the street from me. Wow, God, it was like You knew they would be there and I was the only one that You could trust in to deliver this message of hope. Thank You so much for trusting in me God. I am so grateful that I was able to witness to them for so long and to share the gospel truths of the cross. That You are God, Jesus, and became flesh in order to die for our sins. That we can be saved if we would humble ourselves, seek Your face, pray, and repent of our sins. Surely, these people needed to hear this message and to know that Your standards are higher than our own. That in order to walk in Your holiness, Your blood needs to cleanse us of our sins first. That You are able to give us ears to hear and eyes to see what is true and most important in this life. Thank You so much for allowing me to be a light unto these people and another lady before the night ended. I love to declare the good news of Your kingdom. That You are coming soon, even as our bride who is adorned for us in heaven. I look to You, Jesus, in faith. May these people that I witnessed to be pierced with the power of the Holy Spirit. Even to be cut to the heart, in order to follow You completely, Jesus. They may have stumbled and been walking in darkness, but today is the day of salvation. Thank You, Lord, for this wonderful evening. I give You praise and honor. I love You, God. Amen.
I just went out witnessing and was able to pray for a lady and give out a Bible to her grandson. Another lady was hearing the conversation from a far and was encouraged. Continue Reading

Oh Lord, when I look at the people in this world, I can see many of them that are lost and without a Savior. Even many people that say they are Christian have lost the meaning of following You, and are now being led astray. Some unknowingly and some purposely, because of the lusts in their flesh. Therefore, I pray that You will open up my mouth and the mouths of other men and women of God, that we may be a witness to these people on Your behalf. People need to know what the Bible says and be warned of the wrath to come, lest they repent. Surely, only if people are covered by Your blood, Jesus, can they be forgiven. And when people finally understand this, they will not wish to continue living out their old life anymore, but live for You, Lord, completely. Even their sins will become very vial and wretched in their eyes, that they will desire to be cleansed from all of it. I have seen people go through an amazing transformation, even the moment that they confessed their sins and confessed they needed a Savior. This is what people need to do right now. If people would just humble themselves before You, then they would only wish to be blessed by You and no longer walk under the world's standards. Surely, You have given me a new heart and a new mind, in order to walk in Your light. I can even feel the pains that people are going through now, and I wish I could reach everyone and let them know that they need You for peace. The trials in life can be terrible to bear, but with You on our side, we have comfort. Even Your joy abounds with us at all times. Thank You, Lord, for everything You have done for my life and for the lives of millions of others. We love You and honor You, this day and forever. We give You glory and praise. Amen.
2 Chronicles 19:6,7 (KJV)
6 And said to the judges, Take heed what ye do: for ye judge not for man, but for the Lord, who is with you in the judgment.
7 Wherefore now let the fear of the Lord be upon you; take heed and do it: for there is no iniquity with the Lord our God, nor respect of persons, nor taking of gifts.
We can judge righteously, but only if God is with us. So seek the Lord with all your heart, and you will be able to be used by Him.
Next, we will learn what is ok to tell people and still judge righteously. This is important to do, but we can only accomplish this when the Holy Spirit is with us. Continue Reading
Oh Lord, I pray that people will have an ear to hear you, even in these dark times that we live in. May they study the Bible daily, that they may know Your Words and have them in their hearts. This is important for false prophets are in our midst. Surely, only You can give us ears to hear what is true and what is false in this world. We need eyes to see every false teaching that people proclaim. Surely, the eyes that You have given us, allows us to see things that are only for the unseen. The lies of Satan no longer have us bound, for we are now in Your arms, ready to fight the good fight of righteousness. Lord, I know that many people are deceived in these last days because of false prophets in these many false religions. I was a part of one of them in Mormonism for many years, and I can now see the bondage I was under while in that cult. Surely, I had no clue what it meant to follow You, Jesus, for I was always told to follow the prophets. I was even trained at a young age in that church to sing the song, "follow the Prophet, follow the Prophet, don't go astray". And I thought that was right. It seemed so good to trust in a man for answers. But, oh how wrong I was. These were the darkest times of my life, where sin abounded. Even my addiction to pornography would not get better but get worse. Lord, You know how bad my marriage got as well. There was continued arguing and fighting over the dumbest things. It wasn't until I finally gave You my life, Jesus, that everything changed. As I began to seek Your hand and not a man, did I find a relationship that was missing. I found peace in the storms of life. Even the more I came to know You in prayer, and in Your Word, did I have more joy in my everyday life. What I was missing in my marriage and in my personal life was You, Lord. Now I can't help but tell everyone about Jesus, for You are our Lord God and Savior. If I can be saved from a life of sin and unbelief in Mormonism, anyone can. I love You, Lord. Amen.
2 Chronicles 18:12,13 (KJV)
12 And the messenger that went to call Micaiah spake to him, saying, Behold, the words of the prophets declare good to the king with one assent; let thy word therefore, I pray thee, be like one of their’s, and speak thou good.
13 And Micaiah said, As the Lord liveth, even what my God saith, that will I speak.
True prophets speak for God and tell everyone to follow Jesus, our Lord. False prophets deliver their own word and say follow me.
God sends his servants to speak through Him, although we must be on our toes for many false prophets, like in Mormonism, are out in wolves clothing deceiving millions of people throughout the generations. Continue Reading
Oh Lord, I love You and give You honor and praise. Thank You for Your presence, and for leading me in the ways that are right. I may not have a way to distinguish what is good in this world, but with You as my light, I can fully distinguish the good and the bad. You have given me knowledge, so that I may not fall victim to the same temptation over and over again, but be faithful to Your cause. Because You have given me wisdom, my decisions and actions are much different than in the past. Instead of saying things that I wish I could take back, now I am able to say what is honoring and uplifting to the lives of other people. Thank You, Lord. Even my actions are not to oppress or hurt anyone, but to love and care for all people around me. Surely, the two greatest commandments have resonated upon my life, and now I am able to live these things out. I love Your ways, oh Lord. Keep me apart from the wickedness of this world, and always looking to You in faith. I don't need to fear death or people being upset with me, for I know that death is a part of life, and after it is done, I will be with You in heaven. My place on earth is temporary, and what people do to me here does not matter. What matters is how many people I will be able to reach for Your kingdom, before my last breath. Lord, the gospel has changed my life, and all I want to do is share the good news of the cross and resurrection with others. You have put a burning in my soul to serve You and do so faithful, even for Your kingdom alone., which brings me great joy. Everything I do, oh Lord, is to give You glory and not have any in return. Surely, there are great teachers and evangelists in this world, and it is awesome to see these people lifting You up, instead of themselves. Our light is shining forth because You are in our midst. Thank You for speaking through us. I love You, Jesus. Amen.
2 Chronicles 17:3-5 (KJV)
3 And the Lord was with Jehoshaphat, because he walked in the first ways of his father David, and sought not unto Baalim;
4 But sought to the Lord God of his father, and walked in his commandments, and not after the doings of Israel.
5 Therefore the Lord stablished the kingdom in his hand; and all Judah brought to Jehoshaphat presents; and he had riches and honour in abundance.
People of faith that will be remembered are those that lived for Jesus, while being a great witness for Christ, even until death.
King Jehoshaphat was the son of Asa, who also once lived unto the Lord, but later forsake him in his later years in life. Continue Reading
Oh Lord, may more people humble themselves before You now, so that they do not have to face what they have done wrong in judgment. It would be terrible for people in the faith to die and to be cast into the lake of fire, just because they did not want to hear another person out about their faults, that they are doing wrong. Surely, You do send messengers into each of our lives, in order to warn us about our current lifestyle or belief system, that we may repent. It is just up to the person to humble themselves before You and listen. I know that for many years I was defiant and did not care to know the truth of God outside of Mormonism. I simply bore my testimony of that church being true, instead of listening to what good Christians had to say to me. My eyes and ears were closed off to you, so it appeared to me that people were making fun of my religion, but really it was a warning from You, God. Oh, how wrong I was to not listen to people, back when I had a chance. However, You gave me many more chances that I did not deserve and kept speaking to my heart, even about my sinful life. You did not want me to perish in my unbelief and in my sins. So I began to pray and You came to my rescue. My eyes and ears were finally opened and I left that false religion behind, in order to follow You completely. Even my addiction to pornography was destroyed from my life, because of Your mighty hand. Surely, Satan had a stronghold upon me, which caused me to be angry when people called out my unbelief and sins. However, because I am set free, I welcome everything a person has to say about me now. If I am wrong, let it be said, that I may repent of those sins and be cleansed by Your blood. Thank You for Your mercy and grace. I love You, Jesus. Amen.
2 Chronicles 16:7-9 (KJV)
7 And at that time Hanani the seer came to Asa king of Judah, and said unto him, Because thou hast relied on the king of Syria, and not relied on the Lord thy God, therefore is the host of the king of Syria escaped out of thine hand.
8 Were not the Ethiopians and the Lubims a huge host, with very many chariots and horsemen? yet, because thou didst rely on the Lord, he delivered them into thine hand.
9 For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. Herein thou hast done foolishly: therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars.
Don't get upset when your faults are found out by a person in the faith, but use this moment to confess your sins before God.
Many people do not like to hear people say that they have done something wrong, especially when it comes to God. Continue Reading
Lord, I just pray that people will desire to do Your will. So many people that say they believe in You are really far from You. They have no desire to listen and obey You, but only look this way while at church or with their Christian friends. This is so sad that people make no time for prayer and to read the Bible daily. Other things have become more important to them, which they have really become their gods. If people do not wake up from their wickedness, then they will not be with You in heaven, but find themselves in hell come death. Lord, this really makes me sad to think of all the people that don't really know You, and therefore, are on the path of destruction. So please use me and others in the faith to awaken these people that are sleeping. Help us share the good news of the cross and resurrection, that they may begin to cling to You for salvation. It is one thing to just say that we love You, but another to showcase it in everything we do in life. You are able to do a mighty work in the lives of all people, but only if we put our trust in You. Help me demonstrate this trust as I go out in all the world to proclaim the good news of the gospel. Open my mouth and fill it with the Holy Spirit. Give me utterance to speak to the people, that they may be moved to repentance and to know You, Jesus, as their Lord and Savior. You are the Lord God who saves. Every person that will put their trust in You will be able to do greater things in this life and the life to come. So shine this day in the hearts of the people that are reading this prayer and to those that are humble, all through the globe. We want to serve You with more than our words, but with all our heart in Your good works in us, this day and forever. I love You, Jesus. I trust in You. Amen.
2 Chronicles 15:7,8 (KJV)
7 Be ye strong therefore, and let not your hands be weak: for your work shall be rewarded.
8 And when Asa heard these words, and the prophecy of Oded the prophet, he took courage, and put away the abominable idols out of all the land of Judah and Benjamin, and out of the cities which he had taken from mount Ephraim, and renewed the altar of the Lord, that was before the porch of the Lord.
Do more than just say you believe in Jesus, but do His will also. Make time for God and He will be found in everything You do.
They knew that they were not walking in the ways of the Lord and were sorry. Therefore, they made an oath to God, to seek Him with their whole heart. Continue Reading
Oh Lord, I pray that we will not let anything come before You. If we say that we are a believer of You, Jesus, them let us know what is coming against You. We do not wish to unknowingly walk in disobedience when we only wished to be saved in Your kingdom. So, God, if there are any idols in our lives now, please show them to us, that we may remove them together. Help us no longer keep attachments to such images or statues, but give us over to destroying them completely. These things are only vices of the enemy and should not be in our midst any longer. You are our God and whom we wish to serve from here on out. And if people are praying this prayer with me, and they have in their midst idols, Mary, the Saints, Buddha, Hindhu gods, or any other strange gods in their household, convict them of these sins. Help them know that reselling them is also wrong, for they should only be destroyed, lest another person gets caught up in such wretched and vial things. I know that Catholics, like Buddhists and those in the Hindu religion, are in danger of hellfire, because of all their idols in their midst. Therefore, give them over to a humble and repentant heart today. Help them know that these things will only cause them to further themselves from You, and not draw them closer. People will need to look into their hearts and determine who they want to serve and even make a change in where they go to church, but this is necessary. Just like You led me out of Mormonism, people in every false religion need to repent and come out of their church for Your sake. Even our phone, TV, Sports, and video games are acting as idols, and need to be limited or removed. Thank You for speaking this truth to my heart, oh Lord. I give You everything this day and forever. I love You. Amen.
2 Chronicles 14:2-5 (KJV)
2 And Asa did that which was good and right in the eyes of the Lord his God:
3 For he took away the altars of the strange gods, and the high places, and brake down the images, and cut down the groves:
4 And commanded Judah to seek the Lord God of their fathers, and to do the law and the commandment.
5 Also he took away out of all the cities of Judah the high places and the images: and the kingdom was quiet before him.
Every idol needs to be removed and destroyed in our lives. Do not keep such things with you, but remove them entirely for God.
In the Bible, we have great examples of people in the faith who lived up to and kept God’s commandments and therefore, did not allow idolatry to be a part of their lives. Continue Reading
Oh Lord, I pray that people will remember You at all times and in all places. Help them to remember who they are in the faith and not go astray. The enemy likes to disguise what is evil as good, so help us keep our eyes wide open, that we may not fall victim to willful sin. Many times things look way to appealing and then we find out in the end that it was grievous in Your sight what we did. We may think, oh, I can just do what the flesh needs and then ask for forgiveness later. Nobody will know if I look at pornography. Who will even know if I stay the night with my girlfriend? People will not even realize it come Sunday that I went out drinking. These are the kind of thoughts that go through a person's mind, and because Satan's temptations are so difficult to guard ourselves against, people that think this way often fall victim to the sins that they are justifying. Lord, it isn't until the act of sin is done, that people in the faith realize what they did and feel so violated because of it. This is very sad, for I know how this is myself. I've fallen many times, and I know how bad I feel afterward. It is like I have left You, and our relationship is now tarnished, which makes me very sad. In all this, God, I repent this day of my sins and pray that others will join me. May we no longer do what we know is wrong, but call upon Your Name when we feel like we can't guard ourselves against the enemy any longer. I know that I am not capable of backing down when things appear out of my control, but I know that You will give me a way out. All I need to do, and others also, is to trust in You. Lord, we need to pray unceasingly and have You in our thoughts at all times. You are strength and our shield. I lift You up in praise. Thank You for leading me to safety. I love You. Amen.
2 Chronicles 13:17,18 (KJV)
17 And Abijah and his people slew them with a great slaughter: so there fell down slain of Israel five hundred thousand chosen men.
18 Thus the children of Israel were brought under at that time, and the children of Judah prevailed, because they relied upon the Lord God of their fathers.
People that fight against God and His people will not prevail. In death, the wicked will have to face hell and Jesus in judgment.
God’s people were surrounded with no way out, but to call upon the Lord God in prayer. Even their trumpets sounded, in order to get people’s attention that God is their deliverer. Continue Reading
