Prophetic Prayer and Encouragement
Prophetic Prayer and Encouragement
My Words to you are healing and they are life. When you open the Bible and read, you are reading My love letter to you. I have tucked away many life-giving promises in My Word. Seek Me there; seek Me with your whole heart and you will find Me. There are promises that I have provided to encourage you and build your faith that I am handling all of the circumstances that you face; working to bring about the changes and healing that your heart longs for both in your own life and the life of your loved one.
Give Me your attention. Focus your mind on Me and delve into the Words that I have given you. They are life. They will bring life to your mortal body and into the body of your loved one.
Speak to Me in the morning, as you walk on your way during the hours of your day, and as you prepare to sleep at night. Ask Me for what you need. Do you need more faith? Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word. Meditate on My Word day and night.
As you shift your focus from the problems that surround you and the enemies that seem to be knocking at your door, you’re going to have a whole new perspective; My perspective. You will find there is nothing to fear.
I love you. I love those that are dear to your heart. My love is perfect and without defect. Give yourself and your loved one completely into My hands.
Hold onto My promises.
Let go of the cares and worries that are choking out the peace and joy that I have given you. I give you peace that passes all understanding. It is yours right now, not tomorrow, not when healing has already manifested in the natural realm on your behalf, but right now.
I am. I am whatever it is you need Me to be.
I have promised to meet all of your needs. Do you believe that I desire to meet all of your needs? Believe My Words and your prayers will prosper. You’re persistence in prayer pleases Me. Deep within your heart you know that I am a rewarder of those that diligently seek Me. Your diligence will pay off. I have dispatched My angels on your behalf. Don’t doubt for one instant. My ears have not been deaf to your cries for relief. My Spirit is hovering over those things which concern you and breathing My life into them; creating an outcome far better than you can even right now imagine.
Patiently await the appointed time of your deliverance. It will not come one minute too late.
Prepare your heart by spending time with Me and follow Me by acknowledging Me in all of your ways. I am making your path straight. I am healing those things that you are holding before Me in your heart in prayer.
No more agony. Taste and see that I am good. You will not be denied.
Give me your wandering mind as an offering of trust and allow me to calm the crashing waves of anxiety caused by your desire to figure out how I intend to fulfill My promises in the circumstances and relationships that are most important to you. I am giving you exactly what you need to walk forward in confident assurance that I am moving to untangle the confusion, caused by your worry, that I do not have your best interests at heart.
You can only see what I have shown you. I have all of the information that is needed to bring about the absolute best and highest outcome to all that concerns you. Can you see that by insisting on trying to plan every detail of your deliverance, you rob yourself of the blessing that I have for you this day? Not only that, you miss out on taking the necessary steps of preparation that I am leading you to take by spending your time gazing into the future and projecting your ideas of the best solutions to your problems onto the screen of your consciousness.
This practice is filling up space that would be better occupied with faith in My goodness, loving Me, yourself and others this day.
Be present in the here and now.
I know that you need to be encouraged to hold onto the dreams and visions that I have placed within you. I do not mind you asking for signs and wonders and revelation that will strengthen you as you wait on Me, but on some days, I grow weary of your refusal to just rest when I am not showering you with My revelation knowledge.
Know that on the days when I am not dropping buckets of understanding over your mind, it is because I can see that you are already submerged in pools of ‘more than enough.’ I am waiting for you to open your eyes to the abundance around you, and with the joyful trust of a child begin frolicking and playing in the springs of my favor that you are already flowing in. It pains me to see you straining your eyes to the sky for a drop of revelation into your future and problems solution while standing in the waters of all that I am in your life up to your neck.
If you aren’t going to swim and play in My abundance, at least kick back and relax. Let tension and apprehension leave your soul and body. I love you! Close your eyes. Give them a rest from straining towards heaven to see what I am not ready to reveal.
Today I give you a choice. Either plunge joyfully into the stream of My Spirit that surrounds you, or lean back into all that I am for you in this very moment; let your feet leave the ground and rest on the gentle sea of peace that passes all understanding.
I am a friend of God! Woohoo. I LOVE walking in close intimate fellowship with the King of the universe. God no longer calls me a servant because I do what I see the Father doing and I pray what I hear Jesus praying and I desire what the Holy Spirit desires. I do not have to fear that my prayers will not be answered. I have Gods Word on this matter and He is not a man that He should lie. He reveals deep mysteries to me and its an intense and thrilling ride. I have fought through my doubts and fears into a spacious place of grace and power, a new level of glory and supernatural revelation. I am making it through another round of painful pruning and can see and taste the massive fruit that is coming in the next season. I remain in the vine. By the grace and mercy of God I live and breath and soldier on. I beat my body into submission. Christ has conquered death and it will no longer reign in my mortal body. He has anointed my eyes to see heavenly visions and deep and hidden things. He has walked me through the valley of the shadow of death once again. My knees wobbled and my brow sweat, but I clung to the hope of my calling in Christ Jesus and the dark and cloudy skies are clearing; the path beneath my feet is a steady uphill climb out of the valley and up the mountain that is lifting me high above my enemies.
Remain in God even if it hurts. Remain in Him when He leads you into darkness; when you can’t see where He is leading you. Remain in Him when you feel the cut of His knife; He is removing dead weight. Remain in Him and He will remain in you and your joy will grow and grow and grow. His power will be available to you to accomplish everything He calls you to do, and the desires of your heart will be fulfilled His way, His time and for His glory!
‘As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you. This is my command: Love each other.”

I am working on your relational situation to bring about an outcome that is far better than your limited understanding can comprehend at this time. This is why I am not unveiling all of the details to you. Your part is to trust Me, to obey Me, and to go to war through prayer and fasting. Stop believing that you have to wrestle with Me to release your blessing. Yes, I am calling you to wrestle, but you are wrestling the blessing I have already released on your behalf from the hands of the enemy and unsanctified flesh that would hinder what already is loosed in heaven from manifesting on the earth on your behalf.
Do not ignore My explicit instructions to shut out all distractions and focus on the task at hand. Do not look for the manna from heaven that I have been using to feed you in the last season anymore, it will never be again. You are entering into your promised land flowing with milk and honey!
Now is the time to take possession of the land.
You have been tested and tried in the last season. You now recognize that your ungratefulness, grumbling, pride and unbelief are offensive to Me and have no place in your future. Don’t resist this time of uncertainty. You can be certain of Me and My desire to bring you into your inheritance.
I have striped you down to lighten the load for battle. Today you must rise up and take possession of your miracle. I have released it already. No need to ask of Me anymore for what I have already promised is yours.
Shout songs of praise and deliverance.
Pray in My Spirit.
Open your mouth and declare the truth over those people and relationships that have been bound, not by My hand, but by the hand of the enemy.
Release My people through your intercession. This is not the time to focus on anything other than My face. Look on My face and you will see a smile of satisfaction as I watch you smear the enemies plans to hold back My provision and blessing. Listen for My voice and you will hear My laughter at the adversaries that rise up against you and your inheritance as My chosen and dearly loved child.
There is nothing to fear. Laugh with Me in the face of fear.
Bow before Me and your enemies will bow before you.
I see you. I see you’re faithfulness to Me and My ways in your life. I know your heart and the desires that burn there. My sweet child, you are a joy to My heart! When others turn aside to other gods when they don’t understand why I have allowed certain painful and difficult circumstances, you turn towards Me with greater passion. I love how you climb into my lap and accept my comfort as sufficient in your insufficiency. There is nothing or no one that can take from you the greater portion that you have chosen. I know that I can trust you. You know that you can trust Me. What sweet intimacy! Can you see Me smiling down on you? Do you hear the heavenly songs of deliverance the angels are singing as they form a circle of protection around you?
Know this, there is no devil in hell and no plan or failure of any human on this earth, that can hold back My hand in your life. I am moving swiftly on your behalf to bring about the desired results of your faith in Me. Thank you for leaving the when, where, how and who of your prayers fulfillment in My hands. You will not be disappointed. I will not disappoint you. Continue to march boldly forward. Believe that in all things I am working for your good. You have humbled yourself and I will exalt you, knowing that you will use all that I am blessing you with to glorify Me, because you see me as I am; full of loving compassion.
You understand how My divine restraint, that has left you waiting, isn’t to harm you but to build within your character and life all that is needed to equip you to maintain dominion over the greater levels of authority and provision that I am pouring into your lap.
Today is a day of celebration! Celebrate the victory of the battle that has already been won on your behalf. Celebrate your promotion in My Kingdom army.
You have been tested and tried. You have proven yourself a soldier able to follow orders; willing to lay your life down for Me, My cause and the lives of others.
I trust you.
Let these words sink deep into your soul.
I trust you.
Because you have spent many years listening to my voice and following my orders, your heart, mind and desires have merged with Mine. You know My voice and a strangers voice you do not follow. This year is a year of promotion, fulfillment, and prosperity; what has been developed and nurtured in the heavenly realm is being birthed in the natural. Use your natural voice to call forth whatever it is you need and watch it manifest. Do not doubt for one second that I have anointed you with the creative power to cause every obstacle to your desires manifestation destroyed. You desire what I desire, there is no hindrance to My will being done through you that will not be removed.
Now is the time.
There is nothing too difficult for you because you are walking in My will and are therefore connected to and can draw from My omnipotence the power you need. You have not shrunk back in fear or cowardice and have drank from the cup from which I drink. You have died and now I am your life. I am thrilled with you. Understand this, not for one second have I held your sometimes faltering steps of obedience against you. I have seen how far you have come; your growth into My image more and more over the years is what I see, not how far you have to go. You are complete in Me. You continue to allow me to search your heart and shine the light of My love in dark and wounded places.
Thank you for not keeping Me out. Thank you for welcoming Me into your life and heart with open arms. Thank you for your faithfulness and refusing to turn to idols in your confusion and pain.
You are precious.
You are special.
You are a one of a kind creation and I love you.
I will love you through all of eternity.
In some areas of your life you have felt as if you are just drifting along, being carried by the current of circumstances that are beyond your control. In many ways your understanding of your life has been incredibly limited. At times you feel that I have just been allowing you to tread water indefinitely, with no real purpose or end in sight.
What you see as drifting, I see as positioning. I have told you before that your circumstances are not random, and indeed they are not. I am proud of you; you have finally stopped thrashing about as if you were drowning and remembered that I am with you in all things. But you are to grow further, past simply recognizing that I am here and still working behind the scenes, into a place where you recognize that each situation, relationship and trial has been specifically designed to show you something about yourself that you would not have otherwise realized.
Things are beginning to come into focus as you look back and remember how everything that I have walked you through, impurities in your character, and imbalances in your life, were brought into the light and dealt with.
Turn around and see all the dead weight that has been shed throughout the years!
You are not endlessly drifting!
You have been afloat on the ocean of my love. With each storm you have sought out those things within your spirit that weigh you down and holds you back and have cast them overboard.
Look behind you. Do you see the trail of useless things floating away on the currents of life as you sail into the sun, light and free? The darkest nights of the soul, the fiercest tempest, have made you brave and strong, recognizing that which no longer serves a purpose in your life and casting it aside.
Now, not only do you realize that I am with you, but that I am not asleep in the boat.
All power has been given to me in heaven and earth.
I am not only with you, I am for you. I have been preparing you for something greater than you can even now imagine.
Can you see now why I have commanded you to rejoice in your sufferings? The hope that you now have can not be taken from you!
Now prepare yourself. Brace yourself. Raise your level of expectation higher than you have dared to raise it before, because coming into your life this year is a flood of blessing; a harvest from the seeds of faithfulness that you have planted and cultivated these long years.
Look around you now, whatever lingering habits, relationships, or activities that are pointlessly taking up space and choking out life, toss them overboard. I declare today is the day of power to solidify your will against all that clogs the wells of life from springing up within you.
As in the days of Noah, when I caused a flood to rain out of heaven and water to spring forth from the earth to destroy what had been formerly created so that life could begin again through the righteous man, Noah, and his family, so is the floods that have been allowed into your life.
Only the relationships and provision that I have ordained for you will be carried into the new life I am creating, and as with Noah, I have supernaturally brought to you those things which you need for success and survival.
You have believed my promises and held tight to the dreams and visions that I have placed within your heart, sacrificing many of the comforts and securities that come from relying, not on Me, but on your own understanding.
Your faith will be richly rewarded.
Step out of the boat and onto dry land. Receive unimpeded a new life full of grace, provision, favor, creative power, divine connections and relationships, healing power and fullness of joy.
Enthusiasm is contagious and causes us to take on life with an attitude of wonder. When we focus on God and claim His promises found in the Bible, we can go through life with grateful hearts and enthusiastic attitudes.
No matter what situation we find ourself in we can live passionately.
We are all given endless oppurtunities to glorify God with our lives. Ask God to open your eyes to the ways He wants to use you each day.
If your waiting for the right circumstances, the right people, and the right breaks to start really serving God with your life, your likely to have a long wait.
“Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much.” -Luke 16:10
Sometimes we are waiting on God to open doors for us, while He is waiting on us to take steps of obedience right where we are. He knows those steps we need to take that will lead us to the door that is waiting open for us to walk through.
It is the narrow path that leads us to the doors that are open and waiting for us.
Stop waiting for open doors and instead determine to walk in the light, as He is in the light, one step at a time.
Follow Jesus. He is The Door.
God wants to bring our dreams to pass! After all it is He that has placed those dreams in our heart.
Trust in The Lord and do good and He will bring you into your promised land. He will let nothing be wasted in our lives as we bring all that we are and all that we are not and lay ourselves continually at His feet.
If you do not find your delight in The Lord in your present circumstances, its not likely you will delight in The Lord when your circumstances change.
Delight in The Lord now and find that the tight places and lingering trials that test your perseverance to the breaking point time and time again, become open pastures; the tiny spaces where before you had no strength left to stand, becomes spacious places as you rise above on wings of faith, hope and love to soar.
