My Weekend

Hello everybody, praying your weekend was filled with much Sonshine, mine definitely was. I was at my church this weekend, fasting and praying. We were a small group, but that did not matter, for we were mighty warriors. It was my pastor and his wife, my associate pastor and his wife, myself, and four other ladies. It was called the Jericho project, and we knocked down some walls my friends. Many of your names, and your families were prayed over, and continue to be. We prayed intensely for salvation, restoration, healing, finances, jobs, and much more. We walked around our church seven times, and we walked the aisle of our church over and over again. We shouted out praises to God all weekend long, and sang songs to Him. We shouted out like cheerleaders: No more debt!! Thank You Father!! My friends, I felt the power of God so strongly, it was awesome. I prayed so hard, so long, when I got home late Saturday, my voice was gone!! But, I was still praising Him. Saturday afternoon, pastor, and everyone there laid hands upon me, and prayed over me for healing in my body. Hearing my pastor so deeply praying for me, and rebuking diabetes, totally touched my heart. When they were through, I truly experienced God. The Spirit fell upon me, and I began to dance for Jesus. I was raising my hands toward heaven, jumping up and down, clapping my hands, crying, then laughing, and continuously saying over and over: Thank You Jesus, Thank You Jesus, I love You, I love You. I believe in You, I believe in You!! Woo Hoo!! God is so good, amazing!! We have banners hanging up in our church, afterwards, we looked up above where I had been standing, guess what banner was hanging there? The healing banner, nothing is by accident. My God is still in the miracle business. I love You Jesus, You are my healer. You are my King.

Praise God Denise...Amen!!! You are such a blessing...it's so good to hear how you received prayers of healing & danced! Powerful weekend!
Glory to God! May you continue in that Spirit forever! Thank You Lord for the Jericho Project (you know Denise, I wrote Joshua and had to change it because those walls are the important ones that must fall).
But Joshua reminds me of "Be strong & courageous" and that is what YOU ARE! I loved prayer times like this with my church and can't wait to get home & share in some!!! You keep dancing & being filled WOO HOO! Thank You Jesus! We love You!

Denise, when I head home soon for 5 days, I travel...I will really need your prayers but I will leave word at the Lighthouse for you to cover me with prayers for safe travels & all road hazards avoided & not one van problem. I know God hears you!
You are my valiant prayer warrior at The Lighthouse & I so appreciate YOU & your heart & your prayers but mostly that Shortybear dance & love. Hugs...Love to you my friend...thanks for sharing this!!!
