DON’T FIGHT PRAYING FOR SOMEBODY ELSE! I’M WARNING YOU OF OBSTACLES THAT WILL GET IN YOUR WAY; EVEN DISTRACTIONS. MAKE UP YOUR MIND TO DO IT AND JUST SIT BACK AND WATCH THE INTERRUPTIONS…

This little article may prove itself to be very controversial; but the truth must be told!

READ THIS

I’ll discuss the controversy in a later paragraph, but first let me give you the facts.

SIDEBAR…

I went to church today and it was wonderful! I got more ammunition against the enemy. I love it! I had to go by to see a friend afterwards for a short visit. It’s a new friendship so I don’t know them really well. As we talked, my friend began to discuss a few health challenges. This wasn’t the first time that she had done this. I felt badly because the words that my friend were saying were not faith based words. At that time, I distinctly heard the Holy Spirit say: “Pray with her.” I didn’t say anything at the time, I just sat there trying to wait for the right time. As the subject changed; I felt as though I might have missed an opportunity. Soon, I was preparing to go and my friend was walking me to the door. On my way out, I turned and said: Let’s say a prayer together.”

YOU MUST BE WONDERING WHAT MY FRIEND’S REPLY WAS?

“I’m so glad, I need it!” was their response. We began to pray. During that prayer we pleaded the Blood of Jesus over her body and we spoke directly to the main health challenge that she had and told it to cease!

YOUR COURSE IS CLEAR By Elaine Davenport (Friday, May 18, 2007)

It is most likely that you’ve got a prayer need. Maybe you just need a little encouraging, a little convincing. I’ve got a word for you. God said in His Word in 3 John2:

Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health even as thy soul prospers.

So He has already spoken that He wants the best for you. Whatever your need, your crisis, your trouble, your anguish, your concern is; God says He wants the 100% best for you!

The most important thing to God is that souls be saved. Look at that verse again, He says He wants you to prosper, have wholeness and your health to be good just as much as He wants your soul to be whole.

LOOK AT JOSHUA

God spent time with Joshua, encouraging him because Joshua was His new leader and must have felt like he wasn’t as good as Moses. In other words, he might have felt a little inferior. God kept telling Joshua to: “Be strong and courageous.” He even told Joshua that He’d make him famous and that people would be in awe of him. God did what He promised for Joshua.

Then he gave Joshua His strong unchanging hand.

Do you need a strong hand. Get before God. Get in the Word. Meditate in it day and night like God’s instructions says: “For then thou shalt make thy way prosperous and then thou shalt have good success. Joshua 1: 8

Now you know what to do. Your course is clear.

“Yes, God, your God, dried up the Jordan’s waters for you until you had crossed, just as God, your God, did at the Red Sea, which had dried up before us until we had crossed. This was so that everybody on earth would recognize how strong God‘s rescuing hand is and so that you would hold God in solemn reverence always.” Joshua 4 : 23,24 The Message Bible

Joshua 5

1 When all the Amorite kings west of the Jordan and the Canaanite kings along the seacoast heard how God had stopped the Jordan River before the People of Israel until they had crossed over, their hearts sank; the courage drained out of them just thinking about the People of Israel.
