TAKING BACK WHAT SATAN HAS STOLEN
BY PRAYER WALKS
10 The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).
Recently the Lord has laid it heavily upon my heart to go on prayer walks. I was burdened for some neighbors who are plunged in a muck of sin. I am also feeling concerned for my children's safety as they play outside. I see my neighbors as they work outside or go on walks. We wave and smile at them, yet as I look into their eyes, there is such hurt, loneliness, fear and well...death.
Then God told me: "TAKE THEM BACK!" "Woe, God how can I do this if their hearts are not opened?" Simple the Holy Spirit reminded me I had two legs that work just fine. Also that I had lungs and a mouth to speak and lastly a heart that believes that whatever I ask, He is there answering my request according to His Will.
I would like to challenge my brothers and sisters to join me. In your neighborhoods, your church's neighborhood and your town or city. Let's TAKE THEM BACK! This country was founded on Biblical principals. The first building usually constructed was the church as it was the center of the little village. We have come a long way haven't we?
If you are not able to walk, then drive and truly pray. How is this done? Take the Word and hide it in your heart, then as you walk...pray the Word of God over certain homes. Pray for peace, for hope, salvation, deliverance and healing. Plead the Blood over their homes...the Blood of Jesus is the power over sin and Satan himself. Stay consistent, I am confident that whatsoever we ask according to His Will and in the Name of Jesus...IT SHALL BE DONE!
Read this little story about David and Ziklag...When the enemy came to destroy his home and his family (his people)...He asked God what he should do. God told him to PURSUE! That he did and God gave him the victory.
PURSUE MY FRIEND...TAKE BACK and let's see lives saved and communities come to the salvation of God!
2And had taken the women and all who were there, both great and small, captive. They killed no one, but carried them off and went on their way.
3So David and his men came to the town, and behold, it was burned, and their wives and sons and daughters were taken captive.
4Then David and the men with him lifted up their voices and wept until they had no more strength to weep.
5David's two wives also had been taken captive, Ahinoam the Jezreelitess and Abigail, the widow of Nabal the Carmelite.
6David was greatly distressed, for the men spoke of stoning him because the souls of them all were bitterly grieved, each man for his sons and daughters. But David encouraged and strengthened himself in the Lord his God.
7David said to Abiathar the priest, Ahimelech's son, I pray you, bring me the ephod. And Abiathar brought him the ephod.
8And David inquired of the Lord, saying, Shall I pursue this troop? Shall I overtake them? The Lord answered him, Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail recover all.
18David recovered all that the Amalekites had taken and rescued his two wives.
19Nothing was missing, small or great, sons or daughters, spoil or anything that had been taken; David recovered all.

NOW IS THE TIME TO COME BOLDLY TO THE THRONE!
"Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need." Hebrews 4:16
As 'Blood-Washed' Children of the Mighty God, we have been granted entrance into His Abiding Place.
In the great temple of Israel, we find this place was where the Presence of God had been known and it was called the Holy of Holies. Only certain priests were allowed to enter here just once a year. In that, they had to be totally purified. “But only the high priest entered the inner room, and that only once a year, and never without blood, which he offered for himself and for the sins the people had committed in ignorance.” (Hebrews 9:7)
Yet, recall what exactly happened when our Savior's Head fell breathing His last breath and died. The Veil was ripped asunder from the top of the temple clear to the bottom. [The great Veil was 60 ft. in height, 30 ft. in width and 4 inches thick.] Exposing the Holy of Holies. Meaning; "All who are weary and heavy laden can come unto Me and I will give them rest." (Matt. 11:28)
God made a way through the Sacrifice of His Son; for anyone to come Boldly to His Throne of Grace and ask of Him anything!
“Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body …let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith.” (Hebrews 10:19-22)
Mom's, join me; let's come before the Great King and plead our case; for the generations. For the lost souls and the sick who need their Savior's touch.
Boldly; like your own child who is confident and comes to you-with Boldness; knows that you will do anything to help them. With that knowledge; we follow suite and Go to our Father of Love in this same manner.
This boldness is strong faith, knowing He will hear us and with a loving heart act upon our cries of faith.
He tore the Veil; now it's time for our heart's to be broken as well...so He may have this intimate communion with us.
Enjoy your time with Jesus and I hope to hear of wonderful reports on what all God has done in your lives.
