When I was 7 years old I was born again! Five years later, the Lord filled me with His Holy Spirit and called me out to serve in full time service in the ministry. My heart is missions and a longing to love people into God's Kingdom.
I love to teach God's Word, pray with people and write. 
Soon, we are hoping our Jesus opens amazing doors to walk into mission endeavors.

DESPERATE ENOUGH TO PRAY!

"And I set my face unto the Lord God, to seek by prayer and supplications, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes:" Daniel 9:3
It's time NOW...we have no more time but to...PRAY! It's a busy world we live in isn't it? Personally, my family and I have somewhere to go and something to do at a continual basis. 
We are WORE out! I look at my husband who is a father of 3, Pastor, owns his own Carpentry/Roofing business, in the Ministers Alliance, and an Area Director for the Voice of the Martyrs- I see before me an exhausted man. Yet, like everyone else we can't stop going!
...OR CAN WE?
The Lord is calling His Children to;  "come and dine", "seek till you find me", "cry out to me!"
"If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

Out of a deep NEED and DESPERATION for what God wants for our lives...we, as His children will turn to FASTING as we pray. 
Fasting always relates to food in God's Word. Withholding oneself from simply eating. Yet, as we do this as a desire for more of God; wanting His all to be in complete control of our lives, for His Hand to move on us-healing the spiritual, physical, emotional, financial, marital, family, our churches and land. You see, there is nothing our God cannot do...yet we can get in His way. 
The time we spend fasting and praying will take us into dimensions with Him we may never experience else wise. 
I was just counselling a young lady who is needing some spiritual and emotional healing in her life. At the same time she also has a passion to be used of God in a ministry capacity. The Lord impressed on me to tell her that she needs to take time out of her crazy schedule...TO STOP THE HORSES! Get out of the buggy of life to fast and pray.
This is what God has shown me:
When you start to fast and pray He will take you down this path...
1st You will be fighting anger, hurt and pain. God is going to bring things to the surface in your life that you never really wanted to deal with. But, it's time and He wants it out of your life. 
2nd Once He has been allowed to cleanse you, there will be this feeling of being antsy. Your heart/soul will feel a bit barren...empty. Fear may try to creep in. Here is where you surrender totally to Jesus-invite Him into every crevice of your life. He will too! 
3rd Fulfillment has come as Jesus has been allowed to fill you up with His Holy Spirit. You will feel invincible...that is the anointing of the Holy Spirit! 
4th This is when you then MAKE YOUR SUPPLICATIONS...that is your requests known to God. You will have His Word with you...quoting His promises of healing, provision, directions and so on. You will know by faith, mountains are being moved.
5th The Lord will then direct...it may not be during this time period. But, He will! His anointing will draw you into His Will for your life. You should pray the prayer of favor as God will also bring people to your life to be that answer of prayer.
Lastly, you will be a new you! His child in total fulfillment living the life He has created you for! Isn't that what life is really all about anyways?

Those who have taken time to read this...I challenge you; only as God leads you...take that TIME-OUT in your crazy, busy life to simply SEEK HIM. 
After you do this, start a prayer meeting with a group of friends and pray together. Spread this blessing and see how God can use you to be a major part of a great break through needed in the difficult days we live. 

If you do, stop back by and share your testimony here. If you already have had an amazing experience fasting and praying...share as well. 

The Lord bless you and bless you again and again!

  2. Just had an amazing time with my dh doing this for almost an entire week of praying and seeking God. Fasted almost 1/2...but getting away from it all-no computer, texting, tv just nature, the Word of God and my dh.
    Wow!
    God was so faithful leading us and then touching us so deeply. Revelations, strength...we came back feeling as if we went to a spa... A PRAYER SPA!
