Prayer for Connie & Mark

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

 Today is the 5th day that my body is wrecked with pain, we are under attack from satan.  We are at WAR, I am calling on all God’s warriors to stand together in spiritual warfare, put on the whole armour of God.  (Eph 6)

I CANNOT anymore but through Christ I can do all things. If the Lord lays it on your heart to come to our home and pray with us then I say THANK YOU for this, bring your ammunition, we are strong in numbers, if you prefer to do this in your quiet time this evening – God will hear all prayers. 

 I ask this because Mark and I are weak and I now God will answer our prayers.

 God bless,

 Mark and Connie 082 396 8881

CHURCH! STIR UP THE GIFT THAT IS WITHIN YOU 2 TIM 1:6

“How do I get my people excited about the Lord again?”  This is a general Question that Pastors all over are asking.  Pastors are getting weary and becoming discouraged by the lack of enthusiasm amongst their members and are reverting to every “trick in the book” to keep their assemblies afloat.

Thought 24

Today, we’re fasting from “It’s IMPOSSIBLE.”

Jesus said “All things are possible to him who believes!” (Mark 9:23)

What is in your life today that you have given up on or considered impossible? Whatever it is (provided it’s legal!), don’t ever give up. NEVER NEVER NEVER give up!

The New York Times interviewed me and asked me, since racial issues were such a big story in the elections, was I going to talk about ‘race’ on Sunday. I answered, “Race is a big story, but SOMEONE RISING FROM THE DEAD IS EVEN BIGGER!” There is no greater story than the resurrection of Jesus! She asked me what I would specifically say about it. I said, “If a man can rise from the dead, anything is possible!”

1. Think about the resurrection every day! This reveals the miraculous power of God to do anything!

2. Eliminate thinking that says, “I can’t believe that.” Cynicism and skepticism have filled our culture. We need to get out of the habit of questioning and doubting the possibility of things. When you think there’s no way, JESUS IS THE WAY!

3. Deal with the real problem. It’s not whether God will help. It’s whether we believe. The man with the demon-possessed son came to Jesus and said, “If you can do anything, help us…” Jesus responded and said, “If you can believe…” See it’s not whether God can do it. It’s whether we can believe it. And remember that faith comes from hearing God’s Word. (Romans 10:17)

4. Believe that your words move mountains. Matthew 17:20 says, “You shall say to this mountain ‘Remove from here to there’, and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible to you.”

5. Meditate on people who had an impossible situation turn around. Abraham was 99 years old when he had a son. Sarah was 90! Moses parted the Red Sea. The list goes on and on. Find those people in the Bible and fill your mind with their testimonies. Hebrews 12:1 says, “We have a great cloud of witnesses surrounding us…” If it could happen for them, it can happen for you and IT WILL, if you don’t throw away your confidence in God’s promise…because THE ONLY THING IN THIS WORLD THAT IS IMPOSSIBLE is that: it is impossible for God to lie. (Hebrews 6:18)

THINK IT & SAY IT:

Since Jesus rose from the dead, anything is possible. I expect impossible situations to become possible today. I CAN BELIEVE THAT!

Jesus is my way when there seems to be no way. I BELIEVE GOD CAN AND WILL DO ANYTHING IN HIS WORD THAT I BELIEVE.

Since my words can move mountains, nothing will be impossible to me. I will not throw away my confidence in God’s promises, because there is only one thing in this world that is impossible—for God to lie. Therefore, His promises WILL happen in my life, beginning today!

Today, we’re fasting from backward thinking.

 

So often, we start our day, or our prayer with WHAT WE DON’T HAVE. Around the world today, people are focused on what they don’t have, and trying to figure out how to get it.  This is what I mean by “backward thinking.” 

 

Anything good that is going to happen in our life today, starts with getting our minds on what we ALREADY have, not what we don’t have.

 

Let’s fast from this mindset:

 

1. THINK BACK, but NOT backward.  Every day, we need to THINK about the things God has already done. In Psalm 103:1-5 David said, “…forget none of His benefits—He pardons your sins, heals all your diseases, redeems your life from destruction, crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion…”  Make a list—it will change how you look at your life.

2. Focus on the ‘prayer of thanksgiving’ Start EVERY prayer thanking God for what He has already done for you.(Philippians 4:6-7)  This creates FAITH ENERGY.  As you reflect on what God has specifically given you already, it awakens your ability to believe for more.

 3. Meditate on Philemon v. 6.  “Your faith becomes effective, as you acknowledge every good thing already in you, through Christ Jesus.”

4. Step out of the comparison trap. 2 Corinthians 10:12 says, “when we compare ourselves with one another, we misunderstand life.” Confusion, misunderstanding, jealousy all set in when we measure ourselves with what others have or do.

5. Develop selective memory.  Think back ONLY on the good that has happened in your life.  FORGET the pain.  Let go of the hurts and losses you’ve suffered.  (Philippians 3:13)

6. Expect God to make up to you the years that have been lost through your pains, mistakes and wrong ways of thinking. In Joel 2:23-25 God said, “I will restore the years that have been devoured…”

 

THINK IT & SAY IT:

 

I focus my prayer and start my day with what God has already done in my life.  I will bless the Lord at all times, His praise, shall continually be in my mouth.  I am already complete in Jesus Christ.

I give up comparing myself to others, and I expect God to make up to me all that I have lost through years of backward thinking, In Jesus’ Name.

Thought 22

Today we’re fasting from thoughts of doubt, and attacking “doubt” with our faith. “I doubt that could happen.” “No way!”, etc.

 

Jesus said, “Why did you doubt?” (Matthew 14:31).  Clearly, He believes in us, and in our ability to be free from doubt.

 

Let’s change it TODAY:

 

1. Discover the root of doubt.  Doubt comes when we judge our situation by what it looks like or what we feel, rather than by what God said. (2 Corinthians 5:7)

2. Understand the meaning.  Doubt means DOUBLE; to be divided in your mind.  We must CHOOSE to believe ONLY the Word of God.

3. Recognize the consequence of doubt—James 1:6-7.  The one who doubts CAN’T receive from God. 

4. Starve your doubt. When the thought of doubt comes, replace it with the exact opposite thought.  For example, the thought comes: I’m not sure I can overcome this.”  Replace it immediately with:  I am more than a conqueror; more than an overcomer through Him who loves me. Romans 8:37.

5. Be child-like. Don’t over-analyze. A child does not doubt.  You never hear 3 or 4 years old say, “No way.” They haven’t let reason and intellect, and life experiences dampen their faith.  See yourself as a child–A child of God. Accept what He says, and get rid of the “no way’s.”

6.  Purify yourself in a NEW way.  It’s not about purifying from all wrong behaviors. It’s purifying from all doubt. Washing ourselves with the pure water of Gods promises. (Eph. 5:26)

 

THINK IT & SAY IT:

I attack doubt today by choosing to believe what God says, regardless of what I see or feel. I will not be of those who don’t receive from God.  I feed my faith with the Word and starve my doubts. I reject the reasonings and logic that contradict the Word and I read the promises of God to wash my mind and heart of all doubt, in Jesus’ Name!

Today we’re fasting from thinking: “What might have been.” So often we allow thoughts of regret to paralyze us from a happy and victorious present and future.  Today we get rid of the “woulda, shoulda, coulda” mentality.  (I shoulda gone to college; I coulda made it, if I had the right breaks; I woulda succeeded if someone would have given me a break…”  No more!

 

1. Forget what might have been, and look forward to what CAN BE.  Faith in the possibilities of God extinguishes regret.  Ephesians 6:16—the shield of faith quenches all the fiery darts of the wicked one.

2. Meditate on Philippians 3:13-14 which says, “…this one thing I do, forgetting what lies behind, reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal…” Notice 3 words: forgetting, reaching, pressing. Forgetting means: forego what you can’t get back.  Don’t hold on to your regrets.  Give them to God.

3. Recognize God has something better for you. Hebrews 11:40 says, “God has something better for us.”  Expect it.  Look forward to it.

4. Take charge of what CAN BE with your words. Job 22:28 says, “You shall decree a thing, and it shall be established to you…”

5. Just Do It. Start doing, today, what you should have done yesterday (provided it’s godly!) It’s never too late!  Psalm 118:24 says THIS IS THE DAY the Lord has made—let us rejoice—take ACTION. Daniel 11:32 says, “Those who know their God will be strong and TAKE ACTION, DO EXPLOITS…”

 

THINK IT & SAY IT:

Today I give up the ‘woulda, shoulda, coulda’ mentality.  I will not ask ‘what might have been.’  I’ll declare what is and what will be with my words.  I forget what lies behind and refuse to look back anymore at what I missed out on or could have had.  God has something better for me today, and I accept it, take action toward it, and expect the greatest days of my life, ahead—in Jesus’ Name.

Thought 20

Today we are fasting from the thought that says, “I don’t have enough…”

 

This thought is an invisible fence that keeps us in the backyard of lack and deficiency.

 

It says, “I don’t have enough money. I don’t have enough time. I don’t have enough friends. I don’t have enough experience. I don’t have enough education…”   LET’S CHANGE IT TODAY:

1. The God-of-more-than-Enough lives in you.  Adjust your thinking now.  ENOUGH is inside of you.  JEHOVAH JIREH—The Lord, the Provider—is in you.

2. Whatever you SEEM to not have enough of, SOW.  If you don’t seem to have enough friends, sow friendship. Proverbs 18:24.   When you give what you have, it reinforces that you BELIEVE God will provide.

3. BELIEVE: YOUR GOD WILL SUPPLY ALL YOUR NEEDS (Phil 4:19); and the DESIRES of your heart (Psalm 37:4).

4. Meditate on the power of Jesus HANDS.   When the little boy gave his 5 loaves and 2 fish, he put it in the hands of Jesus…It was multiplied to feed 5000. John 6:1-14.  Whatever seems to be lacking in your life—put in the hands of Jesus—commit to Him, and He will multiply it. Whatever His hands touched was healed, delivered, empowered.

5. Expect the blessing of God to come upon you AND overtake you. Deut. 28:2 (This “blessing” is your inheritance because of the cross—Galatians 3:13)

6. Meditate: “I have come that you would have life in abundance, to the FULL, till it overflows.”- Jesus. John 10:10b Amplified.

THINK IT & SAY IT:

The God of more than enough—El Shaddai—lives in me.  THEREFORE, I always have enough, God shall supply ALL my needs, according to His riches. My God is more than enough. He fills me to the full, and His blessings overtake me.

He gives back to me, good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over!
