Gene, I am praying with you that God would help you find your father, and I know that the verse below is sometimes taken in a more general sense of God directing us, but this is also needed in specific ways to bring us to a destination when we don’t have a map to point toward a specific route. But I pray that God WILL direct you toward your father and be a mediator in the meeting so that it will be very beneficial for both of you!
GOD’S WORD® Translation Proverbs 16:9
A person may plan his own journey, but the LORD directs his steps.
Also in praying for healing…I love it when God gives me visual aids to help in faith toward something, and the other day God showed me in my heart like a medication patch (similar to a nicotine patch that continually delivers medication into the applied area), and I saw scripture applied to a needed area as if it were like the medication patch. And I saw myself putting the patch on the area, knowing the scripture would continually deliver healing to that affected area. “He sent His Word and heals us”! So like that medication patch, I speak the blood of Christ and the Word of God over you…He sent His Word and His Word does not return void but accomplishes that which it was sent to do!May 28, 2018 at 9:05 pm in reply to: "The Lord is Calling Us to Greater Maturity and Humility" Anita Alexander #10050
What a good word!
Agreeing in prayer.
Praying over your requests (joining my prayers with yours), along with the request for protection over the center. We loose the angelic warriors to guard that facility and bind any satanic attack or assignment against that facility.
Father, I also pray for the purity in the hearts of the leaders and administrators over that facility. Guard their hearts in you. Keep the spiritual covering over them, for whatever flows from the head flows over the body. Keep them covered also with angelic warriors round about them keeping guard over their heavenly assignment that they will complete it in you. Give them blessings in this life as well as in your heavenly kingdom. Keep them encouraged particularly as things may not always look positive in the natural realm, but we serve a supernatural God. Let supernatural healing flow from them. According to your Word in Isaiah 50:4, that you would give them an annointing on their lips to speak exactly the right word to those to whom they are ministering; that you would give them the discernment of spirits to know the spirits operating in a person’s life and to cast out those principalities and powers and take authority over them. That whatever ground their feet have trod, you have given over to them and they have that authority in that arena. Guard their hearts, guard, that no assignment from the enemy ever has an agreement by what comes out of their lips. Whatsoever we bind on earth is bound in heaven and whatsoever we loose on earth is loosed in heaven. (Give no accordance or agreement to the devil.) Give them supernatural authority, Let them walk as your disciples walked in the power and annointing that they carried. Cause the light over that facility to drive out the darkness from the surrounding neighborhoods. Let them take back that territory from the enemy. Let no weapon prevail against them but let every word that rises against them be condemned, in Jesus name. Let demons of sickness, of poverty, of crime be cast down and bound. Let the authority of God go from their lips just as John saw a flaming sword coming from the mouth of Jesus in his vision in Revelation. Let Satan tremble when these men bow their knees to pray. Let heaven and earth witness their prayers, and God, honor their prayers in Jesus name. Amen.
Isaiah 50:4 The Lord GOD has given me the tongue of those who are taught, that I may know how to sustain with a word him who is weary. Morning by morning he awakens; he awakens my ear to hear as those who are taught.
I had just finished writing a word in my journal that I felt the Lord had given me and then I put down my journal and went into my email. I saw the posting from Lana Vawser, and incredibly the word from Lana went along with the very things I had been meditating on and even confirmed for me the word I had just finished in my journal. I will share what God gave me in my journal:
A place of preparedness to do His will, a place of resting, of habitation…
In the secret confines of His Spirit, that inner most place of the Holies,
the confines of His heart where He whispers secret things to you
releasing the treasures of His heart.
That intimate place where the Beloved and His Bride
whisper “sweet nothings” to each other,
speaking the tenderest of things on each heart.
The sacrament of the Holies,
a sacrament of worship, a sacrifice of praise…
entering into the Holy of Holies
walking reverently, worshipfully,
bowing down in adoration.
Come and abide in that secret place,
the place where God alone dwells
inhabiting the praises of His people.
Lift up an offering of worship, an alabaster box of praise;
it will not be refused or denied.
Come, all you people, bow down before the King,
for He is worthy of all honor,
and all honor and dominion belong to Him.
Come into His garden, His private abode
by PERSONAL INVITATION only…but granted to you!
His PERSONAL INVITATION
engraved by the blood of His Son
extended to you
delivered by angels, His messengers on your behalf.
“Come,” they extend the invitation.
“He’s waiting.” And they wait on your response.
They extend the invitation to others,
to each a “PERSONAL” invitation.
“Come, you are invited, He is waiting.”
The Wedding Supper is laid,
the embellishments prepared, all is ready.
“Come,” is heard once more. “It is ready.”
“All is waiting for the Bride to ready herself.
Be prepared. It is now. Come,
The invitation is held out.”
The Bride IS Ready; She has prepared Herself
in the Garden with Her Beloved,
listening to His voice, for His voice.
In the Garden, the two alone…
whispering “sweet nothings” to each other.
BEAUTIFUL poem. I receive that poem as well for my own heart!
Wow, what a good word, both a warning and a comfort as well. Even when your Father is giving a warning, there is the knowledge that it is given because He desperately is concerned for the welfare of His family and that if they abide within the warning there is the comfort given of a secure abiding place in Him.
I have been watching a lot of heavenly experiences on YouTube where people have had dreams or actual visitations of visiting God or Jesus, and so many are reiterating the same message that if Jesus did come for the church in the state she is in now, only about 2 percent would be ready because God is a holy God and cannot accept a garment on His Bride that is with stain or wrinkle. Many of the experiences I have seen were Christians who had dreams or visitations and realized that they had spotted or defiled garments. One girl was weeping as she relayed that she saw herself in the vision or dream being taken to hell because she was not in a state of readiness. I do realize that Christ is our righteousness, but there is more awareness of coming daily and offering ourselves daily as a consecrated vessel, offering our body as a daily sacrifice…not becoming born again day after day, but consecrating your life each day purposely unto God and repenting for anything that would bring anything, any stain or blemish, between the relationship and intimacy between my soul and the Father, even unknowingly.
Even as a married couple come together in intimacy, they become one in spirit in a mystery of God.
And in intimacy with God, (but not in a sexual way,) it is like we are renewing our covenant with Him and becoming one and establishing that oneness with Him, and in that oneness, we become more like Him, our garments being made spotless.
I found this on the internet just now which coincides with what I believe in that it is corresponding work on both the effort of the Bride and the Holy Spirit to make the Bride acceptable to the Bridegroom:
Anyway, I really appreciate your warnings in love from the Father.
With love ,
Your sister in Christ, Kimberly
My heart is rejoicing!! God is so good !!!
“Beloved, I desire above all things that you prosper and be in health even as your soul prospers.”
We speak and declare that it be on earth as it is in heaven. Lord, we declare healing and health over her. Even as you spoke the heavens and earth in existence, you have given authority in our speech and declared that we have the power of life in our tongues. We speak life over her and any bondages broken over her. We loose healing and your ministering spirits over her. Whatsoever we bind on earth is bound in heaven and whatsoever we loose on earth is loosed in heaven. We agree as touching this matter, and we know your scriptures: your words are life for those that find them and health to all their flesh; Your Word is living and active; and it will not return without accomplishing that which it was sent to do. So we thank you for sending your Word, and we bind any demonic spirits that would try to hamper or hinder her healing. Pain, leave, in Jesus name.
I agree with you in prayer (sensed angels working around him).
My heart breaks when I hear things like this, but it is so easy for the first reaction to be so emotional that our prayers take on our emotion which is made up of not only the spiritual love for the person but also the carnal thoughts of earthly consequence. For example, out thoughts become fear-filled, thinking of worst possible scenarios rather than faith-filled , reminded of the same power of God flowing through us that raised Christ from the dead and sits us in heavenly places with Him. That is why it is sometimes easier to pray for a stranger and have faith rather than pray for someone we are emotionally close to because our emotions can actually have an adverse affect on our faith sometimes.
That sentence stood out to me when Frances Frangipane said:
“Thank you for your faith-filled prayers.”
I immediately realized I was praying out of grief and not out of faith!
I am reminded that when Christ was going to raise the little dead girl (Matthew 9), he made everyone leave the house before He prayed for her. It is preached that He did not want their fear but only wanted those that would surround her with faith.
We do understand the family may be enduring much pain so they need our prayers as well, but we lift our prayers in expectation of God performing His Word and being well able to do even above and beyond what we can ask or imagine!
God, thank you for reminding me that my prayers may sometimes be weak and ineffectual when I let emotion control them, that our eyes have to remain fixed on you and not magnify the problem but rather magnify You. God, we ask for a new neck for Francis’s son out of your storehouse. Thank you for raising the intercessors. Thank you for purifying the prayers so that we pray strong, effectual prayers that avail much power. Elijah prayed and he shut up the heavens from raining. Let us understand the power that is in you made available for us if we would only pray and be in sync with you. You can’t always trust us with your power; you need a clean, holy vessel to pour out your glory. Clean us as a church body that we would reflect your glory and your goodness and your great love for men so you can trust us with your power on earth, so that men would see you (and not us) as your glory is poured out. We lay up an account with you; and Frances has laid up an account with you. You have a book of Remembrance, and we want to ask for that on Francis’ behalf; and do marvelous works for Francis and his son. We ask for creative miracles; we ask for the ministering angels to be strong at work on his behalf. We thank you for the great things you will do in this situation…in Jesus’ name, the name which is above every name in heaven and earth. Amen!
I think I may have insight in this but check with your spirit as well. Many times when I speak in the spirit I am talking to God, but also my spirit will sometimes respond in a way which I can understand. For example, the scripture says, “I will pray in the spirit, but I will pray with the understanding also. (1 Cor 14:15)
It could be that your spirit is wanting your mouth to be quiet to get God’s response during certain times so it may be that your spirit is telling you to momentarily be quiet and listen. If you are on the phone to someone and you do all the talking but never wait for the other person to ever answer or respond, it becomes a very one-sided conversation. A few years ago, God let me know I was being too talkative during prayer and I would not shut up and let Him talk. (This was my experience, I am not saying this is true for you) But He was trying to teach me to be still in His Presence and just sit and wait on Him. I do not knw if this is the right answer, but I have heard my own voice respond at times while talking in the Spirit. Maybe just try getting still during those times. Who knows it could be you could even hear the audible response back from God at that time or an interpretation for the tongues that you are speaking.
Lord, By Your stripes He has been healed. And you sent your Word and healed him. Your Word is like fire and like a hammer which shatters a rock. We speak healing in His body! Your Word does not return void but it completes what it was sent to do. We stand in faith agreeing. Where two agree as touching anything they shall ask, it shall be done of them according to my Father. Let your Word go forth and complete that. Let the angels of healing and ministering go forth. If he needs a new body part, we ask for it from heaven.
I am replying to my own post because God just gave this to me, but I understand the symbolism of the need for the intercessors, “The Esthers”, to stand in the gap and intercede for the churches and the nations. And this is very precious because it is not just a call for those who need repentance, but I hear the Father’s heart calling the Esthers to come before His throne and plead and intercede for others, the very ones who do have the Beloved’s heart who would know His heart above others and who would have the love that He feels for the nations, to come and intercede on the behalf of those who do not know the Father’s love and will perish without someone to intercede for them.
We sometimes liken the Bride of Christ to Esther, but the main story of Esther was that she was in place to save the very lives of her entire people. She was the “intercessor” who pleaded for grace and mercy for her people. I hear the call to those that are called to be “Esther” for the people. I love the heart of God in this and hear the cry for intercessors to come forth!
