Prayers and Promises Top 10 Posts-Countdown

I love reading the Daily Post. There are always tons of ideas on what to share and when. Today Ben challenged us with COUNTDOWN –  ‘Tis the season for suspense-building lists.  I love lists!

So, in an effort to “play along” here are the

Prayers and Promises TOP 10 Posts of All Time

10.  Diana Rasmussen Musicmusic 8

Soul Survivor

Diana Rasmussen is a Soul Survivor. She plays live at the local coffee shops and her original songs focus on overcoming adversity, breaking free from domestic violence, and living beyond depression. Fans have called her songs,“haunting, powerful, and edgy”. Diana sounds like Annie Lennox and Bonnie Raitt, and there is a raw honesty about her lyrics. Diana has many TOP 10 AWARDS from Broadjam, Inc. in the Country, Folk, Jazz, and World Categories.

9.  Protected By a Wall Of Fire

Today I wanted to share some powerful scripture verses that you can claim and pray when you need Divine Protection.  When you speak these over yourself and your life – amazing things happen when you are a believer!  I cannot tell you how many times God stepped into my situation and gave me Divine Protection. He has protected me from abusers, car crashes, injuries, death, depression, violence, and so much more.  God is faithful to us, and to His WORD!

 

Tears8.  How to Defeat the Spirit of Depression

I have battled the Spirit of Depression and Anxiety for a long time. I came across this video today. Today I will put on the Garment of Praise and defeat these deceiving and vexing spirits! Heaviness be gone in Jesus Name!

Learn the signs of Depression, the spiritual reason behind self injury, and the signs of Demonic Oppression. The Blood of Jesus is the answer.

 

7.  The Blood of Jesus in Spiritual BattleBlood of Jesus

There is protection available to us when we are under the Blood of Jesus. Remember our battle is not with flesh and blood…and our weapons are not carnal – but mighty!

“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.” (2 Corinthians 10:3-6 NKJV)

 

rev 36.  Divine Connections

Have you noticed the Lord is bringing His children together lately?  I cannot tell you how many DIVINE CONNECTIONS the Lord has brought my way in this past six months.  There is a Great Awakening happening in the Body of Christ.  God is bringing his kids together to accomplish His will on earth.  It’s not a solo act anymore, there are ensembles rising up!  And they are anointed with Power from God!

4.  Quotes to Remember Our Fallen Heros

REMEMBER

We remember you, the fallen, the ones who gave their lives for our freedom.   You are not forgotten. Your love lives on in our hearts.  We cherish the time we had with you. Memories so sweet. And always, we love you.

 

3.  The Blood of Jesus for Protection

There is protection available to us when we are under the Blood of Jesus. Remember our battle is not with flesh and blood…and our weapons are not carnal – but mighty!

“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.” (2 Corinthians 10:3-6 NKJV)

 

2.  The Jezebel Spirit – Discerning the Spirit of Controljezebel

Every now and again you receive a teaching that transforms you, that helps you see things as they really are.  I am sharing this, as it helped me know why I was continually hooking up with abusive men. Why was I the one attracted to the Jezebel Spirit?  Yep, I was an Ahab. I would do anything for love and attention.  I didn’t see it then, but once I was free and safe, I had to look at my behavior.  I didn’t want to keep repeating the same pattern.  I took a year off from dating – yep, for the first time in my life – I wasn’t attached to anyone.  It was the best thing I ever did.  I came to know God.  I learned to sit at the feet of Jesus and let Him heal the emptiness inside  my soul. Places and wounds that I had tried to heal with relationships – bad relationships.  And then, things started to change for Ms. D.

Latter Rain

Daily Prompt: Thank You

Today I wanted to thank all those who have stopped by at my little “corner” of the World here at Prayers and Promises.  I am grateful for your presence. And I love to read about you and how you we are all growing stronger every day.  Some of the battles have yet to be won – yet I believe together we can accomplish much – with God’s help and direction. Thank you for listening, I really do appreciate all of your support.  I cannot tell you how much it means to me to have someone that actually listens to what I have to say.

 You have helped me believe in myself again.

And the prayers you have prayed for me have been answered – I have such a peace today.  

Thank you!

 I pray God’s abundant peace and blessings to all of you, I love you all!

New Beginnings

Blog-land, a public place to share your private thoughts…who coulda thunk it?  I started Prayers and Promises as a place to share prayers and promises, and to testify about the goodness of God.  I have to say I have learned more from by brothers and sisters here than in many relationships I have had.  There is a freedom when you write – no constraints – I love it!   So, here’s a few pics that let me dance today.  God bless you all!

Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out;
you formed me in my mother’s womb.
I thank you, High God—you’re breathtaking!
Body and soul, I am marvelously made!
I worship in adoration—what a creation!
You know me inside and out,
you know every bone in my body;
You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit,
how I was sculpted from nothing into something.
Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth;
all the stages of my life were spread out before you,
The days of my life all prepared
before I’d even lived one day.

 Your thoughts—how rare, how beautiful!
God, I’ll never comprehend them!
I couldn’t even begin to count them—
any more than I could count the sand of the sea.
Oh, let me rise in the morning and live always with you!
And please, God, do away with wickedness for good!
And you murderers—out of here!—
all the men and women who belittle you, God,
infatuated with cheap god-imitations.
See how I hate those who hate you, God,
see how I loathe all this godless arrogance;
I hate it with pure, unadulterated hatred.
Your enemies are my enemies! (Psalm 139:12-22 MSG)

My someday is finally here
I forgot my past, I press on ahead
born for such a time as this

*

a change of heart, it’s only the start
of the goodness of God
that’s coming my way

*

No more running or hiding
I am more than surviving
God has supplied all that I need

*

No more whining or crying
God’s favor is on me
His grace makes me sing

*

No more losers, abusers
I am no longer a victim
The Mighty God has delivered me

*

No more cheaters or liars
I’m living in the truth
He gave me royal blood
*
No more fighting or strife
I’m resting in His peace
God’s calmed me in the storm

*

No more worries or anxiety
I trust in my God
He is faithful to the end

*

No more bondage or slavery
I am free in the King
An adopted child with inheritance

*

No more poverty or want
I am blessed beyond measure
The love of God changes everything

*

My someday is finally here!
