Prayers for the Lost

Prayers for Prodigals and Unsaved Loved Ones

The Return of the Prodigal Son by Arthur A Dixon (available at Fine Art America)

I’ve received many prayer request over the years for unsaved loved ones and lost family members and felt led to reshare links to past posts from my blog: scripture-based, therefore, powerful prayers for lost loved ones.

How to Pray for Prodigals (Even When They Love Their Sins)

Excerpt: “Father, thank You for Your powerful Word, name, and blood I can use to destroy the works of the devil in the earth as Your co-laborer and joint-heir. Including for my child.

I rebuke the devil and pull down every stronghold, trap, deception, and confusion that thief is using against [child’s name]. I command his/her blinded mind to be set free in the name of Jesus. That the light of the gospel of Jesus Christ may shine on him/her in its fulness. That he/she may see sin as You see it, so he/she turns from it and towards You.

I stand in the gap for [child’s name] and pull down strongholds, casting down arguments, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God. And bring every thought, every lie of satan, into captivity to the obedience of Christ.

A Powerful and Effective Prayer for Unsaved Loved Ones

Excerpt:“The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance,” (2 Peter 3:9)

Father, thank You that it is Your will that none perish but all be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth. Thank You for hearing my cries for [loved one’s name] and passionately pursuing him/her.

I use my blood-bought authority and rebuke the enemy and cancel, destroy, and render ineffective every plot, plan, trap, and tactic he is using to keep the mind of [loved one’s name] blinded from “the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ.”

Call To Action, Exposing Darkness

THE DANGEROUS EQUALITY ACT (HB5) – The Wicked PRO-Assault and Attack on Women, Our Daughters, the Unborn, and Christians

Who could have voted for this?

UPDATE: The bill passed through congress today. See link for update. Please don’t give up.

The Equality Act sounds positive.

But behind that deceiving name is a bill (HB5) being pushed through the House and Senate. This bill could impact basic religious freedoms in our nation like nothing else. Here are just some of the concerns:

Forcing young girls to share bathrooms and locker rooms with those who “identify” as female.

Making it illegal “hate speech” to talk about biblical identity as it refers to homosexuality and gender.

Strip the rights of  Christians to exercise their conscience as it refers to hiring and even paying for abortions.

This bill is moving through the House fast, and soon it will be in the Senate, where the left now holds a majority. We are deeply concerned that this bill will be used to get rid of the filibuster and that this (and other bad bills) will then be passed by a simple majority–unleashing tragic consequences. 

We need you to PRAY AND ACT NOW.” <= Excerpt from IFAPRAY.ORG here

“If it becomes law, the Act will serve as a backdoor way to sanction abortions, introduce explicit content in school curriculum, let boys win in girls’ sports, allow grown men in girl’s restrooms, pressure children as young as eleven toward experimental cross-sex hormones with or without their parents’ knowledge or consent – and silence all of us who disagree. Doctors can be prosecuted if they refuse to perform these treatments.

That part about silencing us is the most dangerous. The bill makes it a criminal act to disagree with their view on gender, even on the grounds that it violates your religious views. The Equality Act. It is due to be voted on in the Senate soon, before being sent to Biden for signing.” <= Excerpt from Mario Murillo’s blog.

***Meaning any real Pastors and anyone speaking the truth of the Word about sexuality will be put in jail and prison if this passes.***

Satan’s tactics are confusion. Be NOT deceived.

For example, using language that sounds positive and loving TOWARDS actual evil and sin in order to paint people who disagree with said evils as the “bad guys” and the true “sinners” or “hateful and intolerant” ones.

But what the enemy is sadly able to accomplish with many is getting people’s eyes off how bills like this harm, assault, commit crimes against, attack and spew hatred at others by SIMPLY using positive, “pro” sounding terms.

It’s grievous how easily people even in the church can be deceived by use of words. But I pray more in the church have eyes to see what is happening and act.

Pro-choice. Choices are nice, right? Well NOT if you’re an innocent, unborn baby with no choice in the matter on being slaughtered by mommy dearest. In this case, nice sounding “choice” is merely coverup terminology for murdering babies inspired by satan. A leglized right to murder an innocent, defenseless baby.

“EQUALITY ACT” must be good, right? It’s pro equality.

But what it does is give a certain “class” of people greater rights than others.

This wicked bill LITERALLY brings to pass…

  • assault crimes against women by allowing men and boys into girl’s restrooms and lockerooms. It’s a violation of their safety, feelings of security and decency, etc. For victims of abuse, it would be a PTSD trigger and an additional assault on them. But the wicked don’t care because, ya know, THEIR version of equality annihilates the rights and equality of real women. Of course, satan would use a bill like this to give access to our daughters by sex offenders not being questioned when they want to enter women’s and girl’s restrooms because they merely state they “identify” as a woman.
  • punishment of Christians and an attack free speech
  • increased murder of the unborn by forcing Christians to pay for abortions.

This is 100% a violation of our God-given rights and completely strips certain groups of people of their constutional rights by exalting the rights of others. This is outright criminal and tyranny and must be stopped.

Church, what say you?

URGENT UPDATE on the THE DANGEROUS EQUALITY ACT (HB5) – Important Calls to Action and PRAY – DO NOT GIVE UP!

PRAYER AND SPIRITUAL WARFARE

Father, no weapon formed against us will prosper and any tongue that rises up against us, we condemn in the name of Jesus. As Your legislative body in the earth, we kill this HB5 bill dead in the name of Jesus.

We condemn every character, dot, and tittle of this wicked bill and nullify it by Your Spirit and with Your consuming fire.

We take authority over every demon, principality, and power of darkness behind this HB5 bill, and rebuke them, and tell their evil works to be destroyed under our feet in the name of Jesus.

We take authority over every demon possessing and influencing the authors and supporters of this bill and call them bound, confused, confounded, foiled, and command them to come out of these people RIGHT NOW and go to the abyss RIGHT NOW in the name of Jesus.

Lord, loose legions of warring angels to every place these people are discussing and deciding on this bill and UTTERLY destroy this bill and their attempts to bring this wicked to pass.

I pray the Word weapon of Psalm 35:5-7, Lord God, over this bill and the people pushing it:

Let them be like chaff before the wind,
And let the angel of the Lord chase them.
Let their way be dark and slippery,
And let the angel of the Lord pursue them.
For without cause they have hidden their net for us in a pit,
Which they have dug without cause for our lives.

Let it be so, Lord, in the name of Jesus, amen.

[pray in the Spirit]

Justice, Visions

A Grace Only Jesus? So Much Stirring by the Spirit. We Must Never Again Present a Fake Jesus

A few weeks ago, I had a vision, which I don’t have often. This wasn’t an open vision but a “brief scene” of a hand on a dial turning it up. He’d been speaking to me about the dispensation of grace we are living in now.

I try to be careful not to speak or write about something the Lord shows me until I have more revelation on it. Sometimes, that more comes a few hours, days, or weeks later. Sometimes, even years. But I will share the parts I believe He’s revealed to me so far.

I believe with every passing moment we are moving closer to the end of this dispensation of grace and are closer than ever before to being raptured. God reveals things to us in part, but I believe that dial being turned up represents things being turned up in these end times. More justice, more glory, more miracles, and of course more evil, the enemy knowing his time is short. And more of much I know not yet of.

I also get a sense that as we move towards the unknown day of the church’s rapture that it will seem like there’s less grace and more justice and judgment as well. That it won’t be like God turning an “on and off” switch but that the change will be gradual until we are raptured. Then the wrath comes. Again, I am seeing this in part and need to pray into it more.

I would love to hear from another saint who’s heard something similar to this being a transition and not like a switch. Or maybe there is a verse that supports this in the Word? I’ve had the Holy Spirit tell me something FIRST, then lead me to it in the Word AFTER.

Because I care about what God cares about, I often check in with Him on matters, so I asked Him earlier today if my heart is right by Him at the radical levels of justice and aggressive prayers I’ve felt feel to pray in these times, and He keeps confirming that I am being led by the Spirit.

There is something truly powerful by the Spirit stirring in my spirit. God is up to something. I believe we will see great justice before our eyes. This great stirring in my spirit especially over the past few months coincides with the season of justice the Lord has been speaking to me about for at least the past few years.

Like I’ve seen online with many of God’s children, He’s also given me Psalm 37 as one of the Word weapons of choice to pray for this season of HIS justice that He desires to bring into the earth against His enemies. This psalm is a weapon I used to win a battle I was in many years ago against a terrible enemy. And when the Lord brought His Word to pass for me, He did so FAR above my asking or ability to imagine. Hallelujah!

He confirmed this season being one of HIS justice against His enemies yet again today

On February 15, 2021, I wrote a post called, That Time When Paul Struck an Evil Man Temporarily Blind,” to convey that there are times even under the New Covenant of grace where bold, overturn the evil in the temple like Jesus did is called for. Must be done. And to God’s glory.

Then today, He confirmed that February 15th word and much about justice as I watched this video by Pastor Cicciolanti called, “Biden the GOLDEN CALF? | The Blasphemy of Christians Supporting Evil, Separating Church & State.”

In the video, we are reminded that though we are under the dispensation of grace that we are portraying a “FAKE Jesus” if we neglect to mention that He is still a God of justice who judges His enemies.

Here’s what Pastor Cicciolanti had to say, “The Jesus of a comfortable, modern society has become something very different. A God who gives out candies, blessings, and grace all the time. A grace only Jesus.

And the Jewish Messiah, the One who comes to judge, the One who brings justice. The One that whips under the New Covenant. Whips the money changers. And the One who then empowered Paul to curse a heckler and say, ‘You’re going to go blind.’ That’s under the New Covenant.

This Jesus is completely hidden from view. We know nothing about this Jesus. We have presented a fake Jesus. That’s called a golden calf. You’ve made a Jesus and a Christianity to suit your own comforts.”

Wow! Lord. We need these hard, tough love words more than ever.

I was so thankful that the pastor also referenced Paul striking that evil man with blindness in the name of the Lord because after I wrote that post, the accuser came and attacked me. Of course that happens when we are on the right track with God. Not when we are in agreement with the enemy. Duh, how I can forget that.

God in His mercy and kindness towards me has confirmed again and again that this is a season for His justice by His Spirit and through other saints. That the mighty stirrings in me (and others) are truly coming from the Lord as the high levels of evil we are dealing with in these times require equal levels of justice. Hence, how He’s led many to pray.

When I came across those Paul striking a man with blindness verses recently in the New Testament, I had honestly forgotten they existed. Another sign when the Lord is confirming something to me is the timing of when He shows me things, then confirms them exactly soon after.

Note that as far this and my recent posts are concerned, the Lord has been speaking to me about justice for the wicked. Though, I believe He’s also dealing with disciplining the church in this time because of its compromise, lukewarmness, fake Jesus portrayals, and to grow our faith, etc.

Father, please, please convict me mightily by Your Spirit if I in any way present a fake Jesus to anyone. Help me, Lord. When we do this, we could be responsible for NOT pointing people to You and the need to be saved lest they perish. We so desperately need You, our Keeper. Keep us on the narrow path with You. The one that leads to life and is lit by Your Word. I thank You for Your help. You love to help us when we humble ourselves before You. Help Your people to pray rightly in this season of justice for I look to You. How, I praise You in Jesus’ name, amen.
