Pray For Our Body

The Leaders in The Body of Christ need your prayers. They have been given the task to prepare the saints, to shepherd the sheep and to be a voice of direction, edification, exhortation and comfort.  

There are many that are not prepared for what is coming upon The World.

Many have never dealt with what will be coming into their churches. They will be asked questions, they may have never thought they would have to answer.  

Some will be martyred, some beaten, some cast out, even as many have been already in hostile nations. 

Pour out your prayers fervently for our leaders, that they would receive all the revelation they need to fullfil Gods Plan on earth.

Pray fervently for The Body of Christ. We need each other.     

 2 Timothy 3:1-5
 New King James Version (NKJV)

But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,  having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!

Mark 13
New King James Version (NKJV)

Then as He went out of the temple, one of His disciples said to Him, “Teacher, see what manner of stones and what buildings are here!”
And Jesus answered and said to him, “Do you see these great buildings? Not one stone shall be left upon another, that shall not be thrown down.”

Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives opposite the temple, Peter, James, John, and Andrew asked Him privately,“Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign when all these things will be fulfilled?”

And Jesus, answering them, began to say: “Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am He,’ and will deceive many. But when you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be troubled; for such things must happen, but the end is not yet. 

For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be earthquakes in various places, and there will be famines and troubles. These are the beginnings of sorrows.

“But watch out for yourselves, for they will deliver you up to councils, and you will be beaten in the synagogues. You will be brought before rulers and kings for My sake, for a testimony to them. And the gospel must first be preached to all the nations.

But when they arrest you and deliver you up, do not worry beforehand, or premeditate what you will speak. But whatever is given you in that hour, speak that; for it is not you who speak, but the Holy Spirit. Now brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death. 

And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end shall be saved.

“So when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not” (let the reader understand), “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. Let him who is on the housetop not go down into the house, nor enter to take anything out of his house.

And let him who is in the field not go back to get his clothes. But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! 

 And pray that your flight may not be in winter. For in those days there will be tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the creation which God created until this time, nor ever shall be. 

And unless the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake, whom He chose, He shortened the days.

“Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or, ‘Look, He is there!’ do not believe it. For false christs and false prophets will rise and show signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. 

But take heed; see, I have told you all things beforehand.

“But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars of heaven will fall, and the powers in the heavens will be shaken. 

Then they will see the Son of Man coming in the clouds with great power and glory. And then He will send His angels, and gather together His elect from the four winds, from the farthest part of earth to the farthest part of heaven.

“Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender, and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. So you also, when you see these things happening, know that it is near—at the doors! Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.

“But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. Take heed, watch and pray; for you do not know when the time is. It is like a man going to a far country, who left his house and gave authority to his servants, and to each his work, and commanded the doorkeeper to watch. 

Watch therefore, for you do not know when the master of the house is coming—in the evening, at midnight, at the crowing of the rooster, or in the morning— lest, coming suddenly, he find you sleeping. 

 And what I say to you, I say to all: Watch!”

Through The Blood I Sought for Pardon Free by Henry J. Zelley

Through The Blood I Sought for Pardon Free 

Through the blood I sought for pardon free,
The blood that flowed on Calvary,
And now I walk in liberty,
Redeemed by Jesus’ blood.

O the blood, the blood, the precious blood!
I plunge today beneath the cleansing flood!
O the blood, the blood, the precious blood,
That Jesus shed for me!

Through the blood I’ve found the perfect way,
Where inbred sin is washed away,
And perfect love reigns night and day,
Washed white in Jesus’ blood.

O the blood, the blood, the precious blood!
I plunge today beneath the cleansing flood!
O the blood, the blood, the precious blood,
That Jesus shed for me!

Through the blood I’m kept in perfect peace,From sin and self I’ve found release,
His care for me will never cease,
Preserved by Jesus’ blood.

O the blood, the blood, the precious blood!
I plunge today beneath the cleansing flood!
O the blood, the blood, the precious blood,
That Jesus shed for me!

Through the blood I’ll enter heav’n at last,When all the voyage of life is past;
At Jesus’ feet my crown I’ll cast,
Safe home through Jesus’ blood.

O the blood, the blood, the precious blood!
I plunge today beneath the cleansing flood!
O the blood, the blood, the precious blood,
That Jesus shed for me!

Favor by Mike Curley


By favor  we prosper, by favor we stand. 

By favor we increase in this promised land.

Favor with God and favor with man.
By favor we prosper, by favor we stand.

Uncommon favor like Abraham knew.
This favor's for me, this favor's for you.

For He's promised  to bless us in all that we do,
With uncommon favor  like Abraham knew!

Mike Curley

Genesis 12:1-4

New King James Version (NKJV)

12 Now the Lord had said to Abram:
“Get out of your country,
From your family
And from your father’s house,
To a land that I will show you.
I will make you a great nation;
I will bless you
And make your name great;
And you shall be a blessing.
I will bless those who bless you,
And I will curse him who curses you;
And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

Deuteronomy 28:1-14

New Living Translation (NLT)

28 “If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully keep all his commands that I am giving you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the world.You will experience all these blessings if you obey the Lord your God:
Your towns and your fields
    will be blessed.
Your children and your crops
    will be blessed.
The offspring of your herds and flocks
    will be blessed.
Your fruit baskets and breadboards
    will be blessed.
Wherever you go and whatever you do,
    you will be blessed.
“The Lord will conquer your enemies when they attack you. They will attack you from one direction, but they will scatter from you in seven!

“The Lord will guarantee a blessing on everything you do and will fill your storehouses with grain. The Lord your God will bless you in the land he is giving you.

“If you obey the commands of the Lord your God and walk in his ways, the Lord will establish you as his holy people as he swore he would do. 10 Then all the nations of the world will see that you are a people claimed by the Lord, and they will stand in awe of you.

11 “The Lord will give you prosperity in the land he swore to your ancestors to give you, blessing you with many children, numerous livestock, and abundant crops. 

12 The Lord will send rain at the proper time from his rich treasury in the heavens and will bless all the work you do. You will lend to many nations, but you will never need to borrow from them. 

13 If you listen to these commands of the Lord your God that I am giving you today, and if you carefully obey them, the Lord will make you the head and not the tail, and you will always be on top and never at the bottom. 

14 You must not turn away from any of the commands I am giving you today, nor follow after other gods and worship them.

The Midnight Cry by Maria Woodworth Etter

This is one from the past that is for "Today"

The Midnight Cry by Maria Woodworth Etter

Hark!! the cry comes ringing high;
Now the Bridegroom cometh nigh.
Have your lamps all trimmed and bright,
Hearts made holy in His sight.
Joyful raise your minds above,
Fixed upon The Lord of Love.
Hark!!! the WARNING soundeth high,
Listen to The Midnight Cry!!
(In singing, repeat last two lines)

Raise the shout of victory,
Glory to the coming King:
Joy to all the Saints He brings,
Join the songs which angels sing:
Shout aloud the Victor’s praise;
We shall see Him face to face,
Hark the WARNING soundeth high,
Listen to The Midnight Cry.
(In singing, repeat last two lines)

Hail Him, then, the pierced LAMB,
Sacred wounds in side and palm;
Worship Him, with holy joy,
Praise Him without sins alloy.
Saints that sleep, soon He will bring,
Heaven’s anthem they shall sing;
Glory to The LORD on high,

Sun Stand Still by Faith Mascato

I have been moved the last couple days to post Spirit Inspired Poems from People other than myself. The poem below is by Faith Mascato. As soon as I read it, I recognized the voice of The Lord in it.

Like yesterdays post, it is prophetic instruction for "Today".

Some people have a very narrow view of the prophetic. When God is speaking to His people, through a person, whether it be in a spoken form, song, or a written form, it can be powerfully effective if received as such.

Read these words very carefully. Listen for The Voice of The Spirit. 

There can be so much going on around us. So much work, noise, confusion that we get caught up in the world around us spinning, EVEN IN MINISTRY, that we lose the ability to  wait and rest in God.

We need to be able to do that. As Chaos begins to reign in the world, we must find our rest and strength in The Lord!

Wait Upon Te Lord!!!! Rest In Him!!

In doing so, you will gain Wisdom and Power. The Lord will give your enemies into your hand.



            Psalm 4:4

               New King James Version (NKJV)

 Be angry, and do not sin.
Meditate within your heart on your bed, and be still.


          Psalm 37:7

             New King James Version (NKJV)
 Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him;
Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way,
Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass.

Joshua 10:12-13
New King James Version (NKJV)

Then Joshua spoke to the Lord in the day when the Lord delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel:
“Sun, stand still over Gibeon;
And Moon, in the Valley of Aijalon.”
 So the sun stood still,
And the moon stopped,
Till the people had revenge
Upon their enemies.

Sun Stand Still

Sun Stand Still
I am resting in God
Waiting in His Pleasure
Basking in His Light

Sun Stand Still
At high noon day
Let shadows cease
To cast their pall

Sun Stand Still
And shine on me
As I lean back against
My Fathers Delight

Sun Stand Still
And warm me within
And let the cares of life
Be as weights cast aside

Sun stand still and fill me to full
With the Glorious Light
Of Gods Deepest Love

Faith Mascato

Poetry by Joyce A. Boahene (Prophetic Instruction for "Today")

This woman is a mighty woman of God. Her poetry lately has been ringing in my spirit as very significant and instructive, as well as encouraging and edifying.

Our hope lies in Jesus precious Blood,
And not in anything that is man made of.
Our hope lies in our mediator,
And the one true God who is our Creator.
Our hope lies in His resurrection power,
And the strength that He gives in this day and this hour.
Our hope lies in His infallible Word,
And we are not moved by anything that we have seen or heard.
Our hope lies in His soon return,
To gather up the ones who are truly His own.

Joyce A. Boahene © 8/20/13

Lord, give courage to Your Children,
To stand strong in their faith.
And when they pray and seek You,
Come and meet them face to face.

Lord, give courage to Your Children,
To stand strong in the fight.
And let them walk in victory,
By the power of Your Might!

Joyce A.Boahene © 8/16/13

"And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony." Rev 12:11

Fight The Good Fight

Romans 13:11-14
New King James Version (NKJV)

And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light. Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.

  The best commentary on The Word comes from The Word itself. Whether you want to cross reference different scriptures on the same subject or spiritual truth, or read several different translations of a scripture, The Word is always the best commentary of itself.

I found these variations of scripture to be anointed today. The first is a translation I have never read before.

I like it for these verses.

Ephesians 6:10-12
The Voice (VOICE)

Finally, brothers and sisters, draw your strength and might from God. Put on the full armor of God to protect yourselves from the devil and his evil schemes. We’re not waging war against enemies of flesh and blood alone. No, this fight is against tyrants, against authorities, against supernatural powers and demon princes that slither in the darkness of this world, and against wicked spiritual armies that lurk about in heavenly places.

Ephesians 6:10-12
Common English Bible (CEB)

Finally, be strengthened by the Lord and his powerful strength. Put on God’s armor so that you can make a stand against the tricks of the devil. We aren’t fighting against human enemies but against rulers, authorities, forces of cosmic darkness, and spiritual powers of evil in the heavens

Ephesians 6:10-12
Amplified Bible (AMP)

In conclusion, be strong in the Lord [be empowered through your union with Him]; draw your strength from Him [that strength which His boundless might provides].

Put on God’s whole armor [the armor of a heavy-armed soldier which God supplies], that you may be able successfully to stand up against [all] the strategies and the deceits of the devil.

For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere.

1 Peter 5:8
The Voice (VOICE)

Most importantly, be disciplined and stay on guard. Your enemy the devil is prowling around outside like a roaring lion, just waiting and hoping for the chance to devour someone.

1 Peter 5:8
Common English Bible (CEB)

Be clearheaded. Keep alert. Your accuser, the devil, is on the prowl like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.

1 Peter 5:8
Amplified Bible (AMP)

Be well balanced (temperate, sober of mind), be vigilant and cautious at all times; for that enemy of yours, the devil, roams around like a lion roaring [in fierce hunger], seeking someone to seize upon and devour.

James 4:7
The Voice (VOICE)

So submit yourselves to the one true God and fight against the devil and his schemes. If you do, he will run away in failure.

James 4:7
Common English Bible (CEB)

Therefore, submit to God. Resist the devil, and he will run away from you.

James 4:7
Amplified Bible (AMP)

So be subject to God. Resist the devil [stand firm against him], and he will flee from you.

Jeremiah 46:3-4
The Voice (VOICE)

Eternal One: Line up your shields, large and small.
March toward the battle!

Harness your horses; mount your stallions!

Get in position; put your helmets on!
Polish your spears; put on your armor!

Jeremiah 46:3-4
Common English Bible (CEB)

Grab your shields
and prepare for war!

Saddle the horses;
mount the stallions!

Take your positions
with helmets on!

Polish your spears;
put on your armor!

Jeremiah 46:3-4
Amplified Bible (AMP)

Put in order the buckler and shield, and advance for battle!

Harness the horses, and mount, you horsemen! Stand forth with your helmets! Polish the spears, put on the coats of mail!

Be Steadfast and Loyal.....

The Word Steadfast has been ringing on my heart, like a song you cant get out of your head.

I am not talking about a steadfastness that comes from human endeavors or a work of pure endurance, but a steadfastness and a loyalty that comes only from The Spirit of God in us!

Another word that comes to my heart is Resolute.

Please hear what The Lord is saying to His people. His voice in us and through us are of the utmost importance.

No longer can we say, we must prepare for the last days, or this will be important in the days ahead.

The voice of The Lord is needed now! All He has given us and prepared us for, is being called into action now.

Don't shrink back.

Today is The Day to be steadfast, immovable, resolute!
Today is The Day to act!
Today is The Day to give all!
Today is The Day to declare!
Today is The Day to love!

I believe as you read these scripture, you will hear the voice of The Lord and His voice will cause a change in you. Let His voice shake out of you all that competes with His Voice. Let His Voice push out the voice of doubt, unbelief, fear,anger, apathy.

Let His Voice break the cedars in your soul and cause your spirit to give birth to His Plan in your life! 

Then only speak what you hear His Voice saying!!


1 : firmly fixed in place : immovable : not subject to change
2: firm in belief, determination, or adherence : loyal


1: marked by firm determination : resolved
2: bold, steady

One More 

Circumspectly :

careful to consider all circumstances and possible consequences : prudent 

Psalm 51:10
Amplified Bible (AMP)

Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right, persevering, and steadfast spirit within me.

Psalm 112:7
Amplified Bible (AMP)

He shall not be afraid of evil tidings; his heart is firmly fixed, trusting (leaning on and being confident) in the Lord.

Daniel 6:26
Amplified Bible (AMP)

I make a decree that in all my royal dominion men must tremble and fear before the God of Daniel, for He is the living God, enduring and steadfast forever, and His kingdom shall not be destroyed and His dominion shall be even to the end [of the world].

Acts 2:42
Amplified Bible (AMP)

And they steadfastly persevered, devoting themselves constantly to the instruction and fellowship of the apostles, to the breaking of bread [including the Lord’s Supper] and prayers.

Romans 12:9-13
New King James Version (NKJV)

Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good. Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another;not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer; distributing to the needs of the saints, given to hospitality.

1 Corinthians 15:58
New King James Version (NKJV)

Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.

1 Corinthians 15:58
New Living Translation (NLT)

So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless.

1 Corinthians 15:58
New International Version (NIV)

Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

Ephesians 5:1-17

New King James Version (NKJV)

Therefore be imitators of God as dear children. And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma.

But fornication and all uncleanness or covetousness, let it not even be named among you, as is fitting for saints; neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks. For this you know, that no fornicator, unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. 

Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. Therefore do not be partakers with them.

For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light. Therefore He says:

“Awake, you who sleep,
Arise from the dead,
And Christ will give you light.”

 See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is.

Colossians 1:21-23
New King James Version (NKJV)

And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight—if indeed you continue in the faith, grounded and steadfast, and are not moved away from the hope of the gospel which you heard, which was preached to every creature under heaven, of which I, Paul, became a minister.

Hebrews 3:12-15
New King James Version (NKJV)

Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God; but exhort one another daily, while it is called “Today,” lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end,while it is said:

“Today, if you will hear His voice,
Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.”

1 Peter 5:8-9
New King James Version (NKJV)

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.

2 Peter 3:10-18
New King James Version (NKJV)

But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.

Therefore, beloved, looking forward to these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless; and consider that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation—as also our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given to him, has written to you, as also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which untaught and unstable people twist to their own destruction, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures.

You therefore, beloved, since you know this beforehand, beware lest you also fall from your own steadfastness, being led away with the error of the wicked; but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen. 
Psalm 29
New King James Version (NKJV)

Praise to God in His Holiness and Majesty

Give unto the Lord, O you mighty ones,
Give unto the Lord glory and strength.

Give unto the Lord the glory due to His name;
Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.

The voice of the Lord is over the waters;
The God of glory thunders;
The Lord is over many waters.

The voice of the Lord is powerful;
The voice of the Lord is full of majesty.

The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars,
Yes, the Lord splinters the cedars of Lebanon.

He makes them also skip like a calf,
Lebanon and Sirion like a young wild ox.

The voice of the Lord divides the flames of fire.
The voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness;
The Lord shakes the Wilderness of Kadesh.

The voice of the Lord makes the deer give birth,
And strips the forests bare;
And in His temple everyone says, “Glory!”

The Lord sat enthroned at the Flood,
And the Lord sits as King forever.

The Lord will give strength to His people;
The Lord will bless His people with peace.
