God commanded fast for one day out of the year, on Yom Kippur-The Day of Atonement (Leviticus 16:19-31). We have several accounts of fasting in … Continue reading Fasting, a Forgotten Key to Deliverance
Jesus often pulled aside by Himself to pray. (Matthew 14:23, Matthew 26:36, Mark 1:35) The disciples observed Him and saw the power He exhibited when He healed the sick and set the demonized free. They saw the connection between prayer and power. So, in Luke 11:1 we hear their plea. Now it came to pass, as He was … Continue reading Teach Us How to Pray

Instead of a uniform to hang in your closet and put on each morning, God's armor is a 24/7, 365, Kingdom … Continue reading Closing Thoughts on the Armor of God

You must come to Me for supplies and instructions. … Continue reading God Has the Operations Manual for Our Times

Partner with Me … Continue reading Monday Manna – Prophetic Keys for Intercession
