Fearless Friday, 7/8

Forgive me, but I need to put a note up here....Tonya *CRAHT*, Susan in Texas, Sunflowers and Pumpkins, Judy of Cranberry Morning, Linda of PrairieFlowerFarm and others....blogspot is not allowing me to comment....again.  Just wanted you to know, I'm trying. 

Welcome to Fearless Fridays!

Be sure and visit Angela's blog *which is where Fearless Fridays originated* and stand in agreement with the prayers listed there.

You will need to visit her comment section.

 There is a spiritual battle going on.  Are you ready for war?

They do not fear bad news; they confidently trust the Lord to care for them. They are confident and fearless and  
can face their foes triumphantly.” 
~ Psalm 112:7-8 NLT

(Our contact information is at the top of the sidebar.) 

It's a new week and we have a new scripture verse:

"Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever."
 Psalms 23:6
I know God has an amazing sense of humor, because He often gives me these little cartoon like pictures, to help me remember and to help build my faith.  (He knows what we have need of!)
When I think of "goodness" and "mercy" following me, I get this mental picture of two small yapping dogs biting at my heals.
I can only pray, Goodness and Mercy are actually following that close!!!  I deserve neither, but through Yeshua/Jesus, our Messiah, I am blessed!
Good things are happening!
Remember these:
  Jim and Sherry delivered (not 100 but,) 250 purses to
Joplin last weekend!

And not just purses, purses filled with Bibles, study materials, manicure sets, sunglasses, lotion.....just an amazing outpouring of 
Jim and Sherry are not quitting!  The people of Joplin are in great need. Purses with Promise will continue.  If you would like to help (in anyway) contact Linda and she can get you started in the right direction.
*Soon* we will tell you how anybody can simple, such a blessing.  You will love being able to give and serve those in need. 
And we are praising ABBA for giving Jim and Sherry travel mercies!  They had one close call, but they were protected by HIS mighty hand.  HE is so very good!
Sherry is asking people to pray for the rescue/cleanup workers.  What they are seeing is unbelievable.  We need to pray that God's peace (His Shalom) would be with them continually.  And that HE will give them strength, refreshing their bodies and renewing their minds daily.  Praise God!
I haven't heard from as many people this week, concerning prayer requests and praise reports, but that's understandable, it being a holiday weekend for many and many others on vacation or busy with family. 
Again, thank you for helping to stand in the gap!  It is amazing what we can do, when we act (pray) in one accord. 
“But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.”  
 Isaiah 53:5

"So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."  
Isaiah 55:11 

I like beginning with these two verses!  It reminds us, we are healed because of what Jesus endured.  And it reminds us, God's Word can be sent.  I have a little story about that (sending God's Word), but I will have to tell it in another post.  Maybe a few days.

Shall we pray...
Father, I am praying for and sending YOUR Word to those listed below.  As it is written, when Your Word goes forth, it does not return void.  Rather in accomplishes that for which it was sent!  Father, I ask that it be so in the lives of the following.  May YOUR tender mercies and healing touch minister to each person listed.

I am asking that the needs and finances be meet of the following ~

Shoshannah and her family
Beverly and family
Anney and family
Linda and family
Bren and family
Terry and family
Linda and family (different from above)
Pam and her husband (and help him to find work, Father)
Father, You know all about the money Josh and Tonya need to raise to bring Vitaliy home.  Please meet their need in this and in all areas of their lives.

“Then I will give you rain in due season, and the land shall yield her increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit.”  

 Leviticus 26:4

Father, we need rain.  Due to the lack of rain, we have farms and ranches that are suffering.  YOU are the ONE, who speaks to the wind and the wind ceases to blow.  YOU are the ONE who calms the seas ~ for all creation knows YOUR VOICE. You are mighty at pulling down the devil's handiwork and we rejoice that YOU have thrown the "horse and rider" into the sea!!!  Father, just as YOU sent the rain when Elijah declared, "there is a sound of abundance of rain"  I ask you send it now.  Our grass is dying and our gardens aren't bringing forth the harvest as they should.  Please send us the rain we need.  But whether the rain comes or not, we will trust YOU and we will seek to glorify YOU in all that we do.

Praying for those areas of the country that need rain ~ especially Colorado, Kansas, western Oklahoma, and south and west Texas.   Israel also is need of rain.

“Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;”  ~  Psalm 103:2 - 4

Praying for the people in the areas that are experiencing flooding

Lifting those who’s lives have been changed due to major disasters, not only here in the U.S. but around the world.  Please remember the people of Joplin and the victims of the Alabama tornado.

Be with those in and around Fort Calhoun, Nebraska.  Spread a blanket of protection over the people there and the farmland.  Also praying for the area around Los Alamos.

"But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea."  Matthew 18:6

Praying for protection for little Mallory.  May God’s angels watch over her continually and may she be kept safe.

Praying for V’s adoption to go forth smoothly and quickly and may any obstacles that remain be removed.  Give V’s new family all that is needed to see this through to completion.
*Update* on V's adoption...there has been a breakthrough and things are beginning to move quickly.  Please pray all the papers and such will be filed correctly and things will go smoothly.  I know I posted the Update last week, but I'm leaving it up....need to get the word out.  BTW, Tonya (the "mama to be" in this adoption process) has a new blog, Come Rest At HIS Table.  Go by and say hello.  You'll be blessed.

 Praying for Samuel who has Celiac Disease.  May he be healed in the name of Jesus.
Father, also be with  Little Ellianna and her family.  Heal her small body and calm her spirit, Father.  And may she and her family be blessed in every way. 

“The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.” ~
Psalm 37:23

Update:  My sister (Bobbie) called and requested prayer for God's will, as she interviewed for a new position within the (same) hospital where she works.  This job would put her back in IT, so she is excited about the possibilities, but wants it to be God's will if it comes through.  Update, on my update:  She is being considered for a position which will come available in August.  Prayers are appreciated.

Father, we come here again praying for families.  I stand on Your Word and bind Satan from the family unit in the Name of Yeshua.  You said, whatever is bound in earth would be bound in Heaven and whatever is loosed in earth would be loosed in Heaven.  Father, please bind the enemy of our homes and loose the power of GRACE and LOVE in families, that their homes might be like sanctuaries where YOUR Shalom resides!

Please pray for a marriage that is in deep trouble.  God knows all the details.  This request comes from Lynda and the couple involved is her son and daughter –in-law.

"So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him" 

Isaiah 59:19 

Father, I ask that You would be with each of those participating in “Building Our Homes Together With Jesus”.  Father, help us to build our homes, so that when others come, they will feel Your presence.  May we have the energy and the resources needed for keeping our families’ needs met and give us words that would bring encouragement to others.  May YOUR Banner over each of our homes be LOVE!  If there are financial needs, I ask that You would supply those needs according to Your riches in glory.  But most of all, Abba….may we reflect Your light and the message of salvation through your SON.  You and You alone are the giver of all good things!  May we hide YOUR Word in our heart that we might not sin against Thee. 

Betty Jo has a request concerning her daughter and family's new home.  Father, please remove the obstacles that are standing in the way of a timely move.  She also has requested prayer for her parents to be able to sell their place.  Father, please send the right buyer.
*Praise Report* Betty Jo's family was able to begin moving into their new home this past weekend!

 “But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” ~ Isaiah 40:31

Father, I lift all those who diligently work as caregivers.  May You reward their sacrifice.
 Father, we also continue to lift Anney’s mil to YOU.  May she be content in her circumstances and please keep her safe. 
Father, we lift Linda’s step-mother that You might heal her body and give her strength.  We ask that You move in the midst of Phil’s family, that they might come to know YOU.  Father, please heal Linda’s ears and refresh both her and Phil’s bodies.  And Lord, I ask YOU provide a new home for Linda and Phil.

Father, may YOU move in the lives of Bren’s Aunt Bobbi, bringing comfort to her hurting heart.

Praying special prayers of protection and safety for the men & women in the military and their families.  Father, please be with Jason and Brian along with all those in foreign lands.  May they see YOUR mighty hand at work.

  Praying for our country and our leaders - may we repent as a nation and seek Your direction, Father.

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.” ~ Psalms 122:6

Father, I pray for the city You love.  May peace surround Jerusalem, may eyes that are blinded be opened and may those that are captive be set free.  May the people of Israel know the TRUTH and may Your Shalom be their Peace.  I pray You send the rain Israel needs and send rain for our farmers here.

Father, be with Beth's son, Josiah, as he undertakes another mission assignment for the Glory of Your Kingdom.  May You surround him with angels that will minister to him day and night.  And may Beth be at  peace her heart, knowing Josiah is in YOUR perfect will.
 Beth also has an unspoken request. God knows, He hears and HE will move the mountains that need to be moved.

Father, I stand in agreement with the requests on Angela's blog.  May each need, each desire be met.  
"We are confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you (us) will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:" (Php. 1:6)

Father, I ask that YOU speak to Stephanie's heart and draw her back to her first LOVE.  May YOU alone rule and reign in her life!  Father, YOUR LOVE toward us is so Amazing!

Also requesting prayer for Terry’s daughter and son-in-law.

Father, there is a church that is need of prayer for direction.  Please show them Your will and Your perfect timing. 

Father, I have one unspoken request, but I know YOU know my heart on this.  May it be done according to YOUR will.

Praise YOUR Holy Name, Father.....By faith we see strongholds falling....YOUR WORD is ever TRUE!  We thank YOU for Your Son and it is in His Name, the Name of Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah we ask and believe all these things.

It is important we believe the good report (God's WORD) and not the lies the world tells is the same as it was with the spies that were sent into the Promise Land.  We have to hold fast to what God says is the TRUTH.  Never loose sight that  “We are more than conquerors through him that loved us.” ~ Romans 8:37

Ladies, our contact information is on my sidebar in the top right hand corner.  I hope I haven't left anyone out.  It is always an honor to lift your requests to our Heavenly Father!  Abba, loves each of YOU ~ never doubt it!
May your homes be filled with the peace that passes all understanding.  
May God's Shalom settle over all your cares and needs like a blanket.  Remember, HE is Jehovah Nissi and HIS Banner over YOU is LOVE!
He has already thrown the horse and rider into the sea!

This is a new request...please pray for Felisha Wood.  They have two bulldogs that were fighting and she tried to separate them.  That resulted in her getting attack.  She had to have stitches and stables and has some torn muscle tissue.  Please lift her in prayer. 
(Julie, we are mashing those buttons!  God is good!)

Hoping this past week and weekend were blessed for you and yours.  And praying the coming weekend and days ahead will be find you blessed beyond measure!


(Leaving the following from last week, because we all need to be reminded, most especially me.  When times are difficult, it is so easy to come home tired and stressed and take things out on those you love....But we know, that is not the answer.  HE is the answer.)

P.S. ~ I'm sorry, but I have to say this, stress this ~ Ladies, always speak life and love to your home...cover it with that banner of LOVE.
If by chance, I left anyone out, or we need to add someone, just leave me a note in the comments.  I do this each Thursday night after everyone else is asleep ~ I need the "quiet" and the alone time with ABBA!  He is an excellent Papa!

You are always welcome, so drop by anytime!  I'll even make Raspberry Iced refreshing, when it is 108 outside!


  1. Matthew 18:18-20

    amen amen amen...prayed in agreement with you dear sister.. Love you

  2. What a blessing and uplifting time to read through all your prayers this morning! Thank you for being a prayer warrior. :)

  3. My agreements have been expressed to Our Holy Father in ALL of these petitions..... May He hear our pleas and graciously grant our request, Because of His Great Love and Mercy and His Love for Us..... because we have ask in HIS Holy Name and in accordance with His will and His Word and for His GLORY ALONE.

    In keeping with your last words..... about speaking life and LOVE over my home.... that has been my very special prayer for myself over the last few seems that especially in these days when my pain level is high (i prob just use that as an excuse) I tend to be snippy with my sweet husband, i don't want to be, I want to use words of love and encouragement that build him up, i pray every morning for the Lord to help me hold my tongue and only speak words that will be uplifting and breathe life and joy into his soul.....i slip and am immediately convicted! SO i confess, ask forgiveness (from sweetie & God) and try again!! THANKS for your words. I love you, Cheryl, you are iron sharpening iron for me....GOD is so good!! Have blessed day, my friend.

  4. LOVE all the Scriptures and I wrote down Psalm 23:6 so I can add that to my list of memory verses :) :)

    I'm praying for all the prayer requests on your page. Oh, my dad, the one who had the angiogram...well he's doing really well. Teh angiogram didn't show anything unusual at all. However, the doctor said he di d have some plaque in one of the smaller, not important arteries. So he wears a nitro-patch ever day...and it's made a world of difference. he doesn't get soreness in his chest anymore. He can walk normally. Now he has the occasinoal headache. That's a side affect of the patch. He and I are both happy that he can walk normaly again without pain :) :)

    Have a great weekend. Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

  5. Father,

    Please make yourself real in MzzTerryz nephew's situation....give him strength to face all that is going on. Remind him, he himself is a father and his sons need him now to be their stability.

    Father, I ask you draw this young man and his three sons to YOU. The the HOLY Spirit would would come to each of them in the night and give them rest and comfort, that HE would draw them with YOUR great love and that the chains of drug abuse and lack of responsibility would be broken in the Name of JESUS.

    Father, surround these boys with people who will encourage and bring love into their lives. May each find the joy and hope that is only found in YOU, ABBA. Let their lives be dedicated to YOU, that they too might bring comfort into someone else's life one day. Let it be so, Father, in the Name of Yeshua, Amen!

  6. Father, please be with my friends, Sam & Lynne....make their way straight and the crooked paths plain....YOU alone can do this, ABBA, and we are here crying unto YOU, knowing YOU are quick to answer.

    Father, I know Holly is hurting, Greg too...and I asked that you comfort each of them. But, Father, help them to see the need for the two of them to accept the responsibility of raising and providing for their precious family. Lynne and Sam have helped so much over the last few years - but now it is time for Greg and Holly to act like parents....May the Holy Spirit teach them, demonstrate their role as such.

    And Father, please open the door for Dave to obtain employment, that he might contribute to everyone's well being. Father, Dave was promised a job....satan stole that job before Dave could even get moved....YOUR WORD says the evil one must repay seven I claim seven jobs that will open up to Dave...that he will be wanted, needed, and desired by seven companies. That the pay offered would be good, that the jobs will have good benefits for he and his family. And that the Holy Spirit would direct him to the RIGHT one for him.

    Father, speak to Wendy's heart and continually draw her unto YOURself....may SALVATION be her's in the Name of Jesus/Yeshua! Alleluia!!!!
    Thank YOU, Father....Amen! Glory to your NAME!
