When a person is bound or oppressed, he does things that are beyond human reasoning and plays the fool beyond his or her control. Notice, I did not say possessed. This is because a Christian cannot be possessed--he or she can only be demonized or oppressed. For a Christian to be possessed, he or she ceases to be a Christian, because the demonic forces have completely taken over his or her spirit being. This has to occur willingly. Only an unbeliever whose spirit is defenseless and open to occupation can be possessed.
There's nothing wrong with doing those things, but if you never set aside time to focus wholeheartedly on prayer or the Bible, your relationship with God will feel cluttered and superficial. It's not too late to develop new spiritual habits.
Scriptures: Psalm 31:2; Psalm 143:7; Isaiah 58:8; Luke 18:8; Psalm 102:2; Jeremiah 1:12; Jeremiah 29:11; Acts 7v7-8.
1. Dear Lord, I come before thee just as I am; if there be any sin in my life that is hindering my miracle from coming forth, please forgive me, in Jesus' name.
One benefit of prayer in the morning is your mind is clear, your spirit is alert, you are still at peace and you are not troubled by the issues of the day. You give God your first fruit, the best of your morning and the best of your day when you come before Him in the morning.
How bright is the fire on your altar? Every believing Christian is expected to be on fire for Christ. The level of the fire on your life determines your level of relationship with God and where the enemy places you on the hierarchy of authority and dominion.
I will line up all areas of my life with the word of God
The Lord will remember those passing through one trial or the other
I will love my neighbor as myself with my heart and not my mouth
The Blood of Jesus will purge out anything that will sabotage my walk with Christ
When I pass through the waters, the Lord will be with me; when I pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over me. When I walk through the fire, I will not be burned; the flames will not set me ablaze ...

Thank You Almighty God for seeing us through 2013 and granting us the privilege of seeing the year 2014
Thank You for life the greatest gift of all - Good health both of mind and body, your grace that is more than sufficient for us and your peace that surpasses all understanding
Psalm 127. In these last days the devil is waging a war against children knowing fully well that they are the leaders of the future. Therefore you are advised to make sure you seek constant deliverance of your children from evil bondage that is rife among the youth today.
Isaiah 53:5 He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.
Hope is defined as expectation of something happening.
Faithful God, thank you for the glorious vessels called "Mothers."
By Michael Hume Job had one trial heaped upon another. It is not natural to have so much heaped on you all at once. If you are going through something similar keep praying it up to God, waiting on Him, and following the Holy Spirit, Your prayers will be focused, succinct, and spontaneous. God is […]
You can live in victory in spite of the attacks from the enemy against your vision. I know that it is easier said than done. You are dealing with a present attack that is coming at you full steam ahead. You are dealing with some serious issues that will not let you have peace.
Prayer is a must if you are to live a victorious life. God is calling people to build prayer altars in their lives. God is looking for a man who will stand in the gap that evil will not befall men. An understanding of what to expect when you rightly build a prayer altar will energize you to do so.
He said, "If you listen carefully to the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in his eyes, if you pay attention to his commands and keep all his decrees, I will not bring on you any of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians, for I am the LORD, who heals you."
God speaks to our spirits, deep within us, but when the enemy speaks we can hear that voice in our minds or our souls. Have you ever had an intrusive thought just pop up in your mind? Next thing you know you are obsessing over that thought.
The Lord will keep me from all harm - He will watch over my going and coming both now and forevermore, in Jesus' name.
No evil shall befall me and my household, neither shall any plague come near our dwelling, in Jesus' name.
We also know that finding time for prayer can be a challenge. We make excuses. We get caught up in caring for our children and all the responsibilities of our day, leaving prayer a distant thought.
If you want to make prayer a priority but cannot seem to find the time, here are some ideas that may help your find time to pray
The family-friendly movie explores the transformational role prayer plays in the lives of the Jordan family. “We made this film to inspire, challenge and motivate viewers to fight the right kind of battles and to fight them the best way,” says writer and director Alex Kendrick.
There is always a test before a testimony and a fight before any victory. Victory is sure for every Christian believer who will have faith in God. So, the issue is how to maintain your faith till you have your testimony. Many people have given up at the verge of their turnaround. But you can stand strong till you get your answered prayer.
My prayer for you my dear beloved is one of deep desire and fervency. I pray for you in the purest of heart that you will come into the fullness of who you are created to be. I pray for you as my husband, my head, my lord and my man. I pray that you will know the depth and the magnitude of the love that God has for you, then only can you be filled with the unconditional love in which only He can give. I pray that you will love yourself because Jesus died to prove that you are worth it. That you never doubt who you are in Christ, nor waver of the marvelous work that you were created to be.
In this world of moral decline where children are enticed and pulled away from right living earlier than ever in their lifetimes, all parents wish they could equip them with armor that would protect them until they become strong, wise adults. Psychologists say a problem child is symptomatic of problem parents. So just in case that is the case, begin when praying for a child, by praying for the child's parents. Prepare your heart to pray. God listens to the heart more than the words of the prayer. By preparing, I mean, let it sink into your heart that you are not warring with the child or the child's friends, but an enemy who has them in bondage. He wants to destroy them at most and in so doing, destroy your faith and your testimony. At the very least he will settle for destroying your peace, hope and joy.
"First bind...then spoil..."
Briefly: "BINDING" THE ENEMY SIMPLY MEANS STOPPING HIM FROM ACTING, THEN DESTROYING HIS WORKS.
Prayer must, therefore, be (1) destructive, (2) constructive. Wield (1) the AUTHORITY of the NAME (Mark xvi. 17); (2) the BLOOD of the Lamb; and (3) the TESTIMONY against Satan (Rev. xii. 11), that he is conquered and must withdraw.
You walk through the doors carrying a small slip of paper and slowly move to the back corner of the store. There you find a woman in a white coat and you hand her your slip of paper. She drifts behind a screen and you hear the sound of tumbling tablets. You have been here before and recognize that you may have to wait a while. Eventually you will receive what only she and people like her can provide. You give her money or a credit card and make your way out of the store with a little white bag. No one but you and she know what that little white bag contains.
