Prayers of Faith

The Prayer of Faith…

Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing praise.  Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working. Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed fervently that it might not rain, and for three years and six months it did not rain on the earth. Then he prayed again, and heaven gave rain, and the earth bore its fruit.
James 5:13-18 ESV

I find this packed Word that mentions prayer seven times in the book of James to be so cathartic in every way! It is what we need especially when we get stuck in that sluggish realm. We fall in these slumps where we don’t want to do the things that are the BEST for our soul.  We don’t want to eat right, we don’t always want to exercise, we don’t want to go to church, we don’t want to talk, we don’t want to read, we don’t want to pray, we don’t want to grow… the sluggish slumps where we NEED those prayers of faith!

I found myself so sluggish this week –women ya’ll just know why! I mean c’mon –it’s life –it’s what women have ta go through!

So I had to literally drag myself up and out of bed, drag myself to work, drag myself to the gym only twice this week :-/ and drag myself all around.  All I wanted to do was crawl up in a ball on the couch with my pup and blankie! But I have responsibilities.

And then I got there. The place that I was really supposed to be. At prayer! That is the most important thing that my soul needs. Those dynamic, heartfelt prayers of faith.  I laid on the ground. I felt myself slumping even further and then I heard the soft prayer for us. It was amazing. It was necessary. It was touching. It was real and it was just right.

I thanked God in that moment that I even got there by dragging myself.  As long as I just get there then everything will just fall into place, because it is not by these temporary and fleeting feelings.  What I need is… to do.  I need to ACT. I need to go. I need to keep moving ahead. I need those prayers because it changes EVERYTHING!

I laid there –thankful. ❤ Grateful that God is always making a way for me to get deeper into this faith walk even if I feel like I am drifting at times and not the bestest fiery soul.  I still love God.  I still love where I am at now.  Most importantly — I really REALLY love my church.

My Prayer of Faith:
Thank you God for calling me to be where I am in this season of my life. You have it all God.  You are with me in every step that I take. I know that I am surrounded by good things. I know that I am kept by Your saving strength. I am upheld by Your Word. Thank you for all those prayers of faith that are going straight to Your throne and back down to earth to move the mountains that need shifting. Especially the shifting that needs to happen in me! In Jesus Name…Amen!!! And AMEN!


May God move us to the place where there is MOVEMENT!

The reality is that we are distracted.

Honestly I was in prayer service yesterday about persistence and felt like I wasn’t persistent enough.

After the teaching we began to pray and as a lingered there I couldn’t help but think how much we need to be more conditioned for prayer.

Our minds are on media big time!

Shows, series, programs, channels, postings, gamings, texting, messaging and on and on and on!!!

Are we conditioned for prayer the way that we as a body of Christ really need to be?

Do we really pray at least one hour a day?

As Jesus asked his disciples that had no idea how to pray, “Could you not watch one hour??”

“Then Jesus went with his disciples to a place called Gethsemane, and he said to them, “Sit here while I go over there and pray.” He took Peter and the two sons of Zebedee along with him, and he began to be sorrowful and troubled. Then he said to them, “My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death. Stay here and keep watch with me.” Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, “My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.” Then he returned to his disciples and found them sleeping. “Couldn’t you men keep watch with me for one hour?” he asked Peter. “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.”” Matthew 26:36-41 NIV

How can we really seek the face of God where there is OUTPOURING! CHANGE! POWER! MOVEMENT! MIRACLES!

This is how the early church was and how we need to be!



We don’t want to “struggle” in this area! We shouldn’t have to be! We should be vigilant and ready!

And I am only being as transparent as I can be from my perspective. I know there are intercessors out there. But we can clearly see the culture now running rampant and so much because we are not praying enough.

I want to be there and not think about the hallmark channel… my words with friends…. or answering messages…. I am definitely trying to ween more and more off media. I started with “times to go on and times to NOT GO ON!” Lol

That’s a big job! But we have a BIG GOD!

We need to be unsatisfied because that is what pushes us for more! It pushes us to do better! It pushes us from big distractions to the face of our BIG GOD! Just as I wrote in Get Comfortable with Uncomfortable!

Personally –I am unsatisfied. I want more! I want the victory in my prayer life so I can continue to walk in a powerful life.

The only thing that should ever satisfy us is having the deepest relationship with God!

God did the miraculous at Kingdom Generals 2019.

I have been so busy, so tired and yes, so weary that I haven’t had much time for anything. Especially the things I love.

Prayer 🙏🏽

Fellowship 👭👭

Just so many things. I am tired!

And I need these things in my life for survival.

I got to KG and these peeps really put it in… Pastor Jose, Cassy, Lady, Matt, Dave, Ike, Janet, Jillian, Nia, John…. and at night after a powerful first service we got to our pampered log cabin room. They went above and beyond as usual.

One thing I can say was special is that they got me a little tree pandora charm to add to my bracelet. That was sweetness. I love trees… obviously because they are so representative of how our connection is with God.

Encounter worship was just lovely and precious! I can be there all day… listening, hearing, and just in posture ready to sing my heart out to the King.

The speakers are all dynamic. The pastors, family and friends simply grateful. But God God God.. did you ever just sweep in a place and stamp a seal of manifested presence.

I wanted to cry all day. But I got up because I heard the prayers … over my family. God was moving in such a tangible way. Prayer warriors and intercessors were pressing in like crazy.

I spoke with God… “You know me and in everything I do I know You are there.” My heart prays too. Even when it goes through the big ups and downs… The many roller coaster transitions, I am praying in a different way. You spoke back and it was profound. I will meditate on Your truth day and night.

The impossible made possible is just knowing that no matter what moment or obstacle, You are there. I am grateful for who You are, what You did and what You continue to do that moves mountains.

“This is just too wonderful, deep, and incomprehensible! Your understanding of me brings me wonder and strength. Where could I go from your Spirit? Where could I run and hide from your face? If I go up to heaven, you’re there! If I go down to the realm of the dead, you’re there too! If I fly with wings into the shining dawn, you’re there! If I fly into the radiant sunset, you’re there waiting! Wherever I go, your hand will guide me; your strength will empower me. It’s impossible to disappear from you or to ask the darkness to hide me, for your presence is everywhere, bringing light into my night.”

Psalms 139:6-11 TPT

Jesus Is

Jesus Is:

The Great I AM;

The Bread of Life;

The Way, the Truth, the Life;

The Resurrection and the Life;

The Lion of Judah;

The Word…. and I can go on!

You know what else Jesus is?

O F F E N S I V E!

Yup! He is and was offensive. He had to be in order to be effective. He had only three years with these disciples to transform them into apostles! He had to be fast! Quick! Swift! Bold! Strategic!

He had a timetable, not theirs.

Excerpt from “The People Factor” by Van Moody states:

Peter, with his fiery temperament probably mixed with horror and devastation at the thought of losing his Lord, reacted immediately. He called Jesus aside and began to rebuke Him, contradicting what Jesus had said by declaring, “Never, Lord! . . . This shall never happen to you!” (Matt. 16: 22). In response, Jesus spoke strong and shocking words to Peter, saying, “Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the things of God, but the things of men” (v. 23). How would you like to be addressed the way Jesus spoke to Peter? And would you ever be so bold with a close friend? Jesus was! Even though His relationship with Peter was valuable and important to Him, He prized truth even more than friendship.

See if Jesus were to move by feelings, He would not have gotten anything done. He would not have spoken to His disciples the way that he did. It was offensive. He called Peter the Devil! Wow! That would crush us. But instead it built Peter to be the great apostle that won 3000 souls on his first sermon.

Jesus only had three years with them, He had to be offensive yet effective! Today we are filling ourselves with facts—

Good advice;




Social Media;

More conversations…. making us more subjective to the mind of man rather than the mind of God.

If we were to exchange the time spent on conversations, tips, tools and advice with the Word of God then we too would be as effective as Jesus.

We keep depending on the wrong source. Please don’t misinterpret this.

Sources are great but they are not sovereign.

God’s Word is sovereign, final and the absolute truth over any situation and it should govern our every move.

We may make mistakes yes, but let’s get up quickly to rise above the adversity and diversity of opinions and move forward using the Word of God as our sovereign source of substance.

This will help us make the best decisions, have the best relationships and the best outcome for our lives. 

Dear God –may our hearts move toward humility and healing in the most stressful states we could find ourselves in. Move us to Your Word as a guide. May we search it diligently DAY & NIGHT. So we can keep in alignment with Your Kingdom purpose over our lives. Amen.
