Writing My Crafted Prayer - Inheritance Promises & Words

After reading "Crafted Prayer" I have begun the exercise of creating one for the intentional purposes of piercing the heavens and the earth. As a start I have recorded all the important words that the Lord has give me as my inheritance promises from the word and sometimes very audibly to my heart. I record them here:


Jesus, thank You for creating me to be a Mighty Man!  You have called me by name and called me for great things!  I am one of Your favorite sons and You delight in me because I have set my love upon You!  

God watches over me!  His Light shines upon my head and by it I will walk through the darkness.  The friendship of God is over me and the Almighty is with me!  
My family surrounds me in love and unity.
My way is bathed and washed in abundance and richness.  Even the rocks pour out streams of oil for me!  
There is a seat appointed for me at the gate and the city square, where young and old alike will respect me and listen to my counsel.  The words I speak will be so wise that no one can add to it or speak against it.  Every ear that hears me speak will bless me and every eye that sees me will give good testimony of me.  
I will deliver the poor, help the orphan, bring joy to the widow, be eyes to the blind and feet to the lame.  
I wear righteousness as clothing and justice as a crown.  In might and authority I fight and triumph over the wicked, breaking his power.  
My roots spread out to the streams, my branches are covered in dew, my bow is renewed in my hands, and my glory is ever fresh.  
(Job 29)

God has plans for me that include prosperity and hope for the future.  He will listen to my prayers and He will show Himself to me as I seek Him. 
(Jeremiah 29:11-12)

I am strong and courageous!  I will lead people to their inheritance promised by God.  I am strong and very courageous!  I am careful to obey all that God communicates to me, not turning from it to the right or left.  Because of this, I am successful wherever I go.  I will be prosperous because God’s Word is always on my heart and tongue day and night.  I have received God’s commands and refuse fear and discouragement.  
(Joshua 1:6-9)

The Lord has everlasting kindness and mercy towards me.  He is my Redeemer, my Lord, and His love covenant cannot be removed from me.  Jesus makes me to rest in fair and glistening colors; He lays the foundations of my counsel in celebration, communion, declaration, and testimony; Holy Spirit purposes a deepening of brilliance in me;  He makes my boundaries of pleasure, desire, and purpose.  My children will be disciples accustomed to the ways of the Lord.  My family will have great peace, health, wealth, safety, and well-being.  God will establish my family in righteousness, free from demonic oppression and terror.  Jesus is my defense against any who rise up against me.  
(Isaiah 54:8, 10-15)

The Lord has created me and called me His own.  I walk in the confidence of that qualification alone.  Holy Spirit is with me through fire and water and no harm will come to my soul in His presence.  
(Isaiah 43:1-3)

I am the Lord’s servant, hand-chosen by Him to do His will on the earth.  Not only that, but also His friend.  I will never fear because of His presence.  He is my God, so nothing can dismay me.  I am strong because He helps and upholds me.
(Isaiah 41:8-10)

The Lord has made me into a threshing sledge to pulverize mountains in my way.  As I walk on my path of destiny, my feet winnow down obstacles and they are blown away.  I will rejoice in the Lord always and glorify the Holy One of Israel!
(Isaiah 41:14-16)

I don’t remember the former things, because Holy Spirit is doing something new in me!  
(Isaiah 43:18-19)

Jesus has blotted out all transgressions, sins, and iniquities and sees them no longer!  I am free from all sin and it has no influence over me any longer because the Lord has redeemed me!
(Isaiah 44:22)

The Lord goes before me to subdue nations before me and those who wish to oppose me will lose even the desire and ability to stand against me.  Instead of a fight, I will walk through a double portion of opportunity and blessing!  Holy Spirit goes before me and comes behind, making my path clear and established.  I will receive the hidden spoils of darkness from His hand!  
(Isaiah 45:1-6)

I trust in the Lord and His goodness works through me.  I am fulfilled and satisfied with His faithfulness wherever I dwell.  My delight is in Jesus and His Holy Spirit, my desires are His and so He fulfills them!  My way is committed to the Lord and my trust also, because of this I know He will accomplish it!  His righteousness will shine as a bright light in me! 
(Psalm 37:3-6)

I am righteous in Christ and my steps are ordered by God alone.  He delights in me!  
(Psalm 37:23)

No evil has permission or right to set foot anywhere near my family; likewise, no sickness or epidemic can plague any within my house. 
(Psalm 91:10)

I have an intimate love relationship with the Almighty God and He delivers me!  I know Him and He knows me, that is my honor in life!  When I call on Him, He not only hears, but also answers me.  His presence is my rescue from troubles and His salvation is life!
(Psalm 91:14-16)

The Lord is faithful to remain with me, working in me to finish all He has spoken to me.  I am aware and alert to His presence and remain lined up with the open heavens!  
(Genesis 28:12, 15)

The Lord encircles me, instructs me and keeps me as the apple of His eye.  Holy Spirit hovers over me, covers me in His wings, and carries me higher.   Jesus leads me to ride on the heights, to eat of productiveness, providing sweetness and anointing even from unproductive situations.
(Deuteronomy 32:10-14)

The Lord has blessed me, therefore I am rich and without sorrow!  
(Proverbs 10:22)

Way of the Warrior - Thought One!

Finished reading "Coming into Alignment" by Graham Cooke what a brilliant book! Cool and awesome cooperated work with the genius-ness of the Holy Spirit. Well I am almost talking like Graham now..what a blessed father of faith who is able to call the gold in people with the words inspired by the Spirit of God.

This season is the beginning of new upgrades, going into higher levels of being a warrior and being in the warrior generation God is calling me into. The secret is learning to last or outlast  with Joy. The secret is to be in the holy of holies, in His secret pavilion and continue to stay in worship and learning to pray like the bride.

Warriors now know this is a new strategy of warfare. The time of standing on the wall and interceding is over, the time for interceding like a bride is the answer to a greater walk of not only intimacy but great exploits, great adventures and greater deliverances.

I tweeted this morning that "12 special force guys were send to Canaan only two went in with the majesty of God. The result ten came back as wimps and the two all ready for taking on the giants in battle." Warriors are being reprogrammed by the brilliantness of the Holy Spirit to increase their focus, be more accountable of the time that is been given. I am realizing more & more this is also choice driven from my part. It is the process of allowing the Holy spirit to take control that makes everything else easier. I am learning that process, impartation, and revelation from God and giving His Holy Spirit permission to do this in any order He may see fit for the different phases of my life results into the strengthening of my inner man.

Thoughts from my journal.

Read couple of psalms about God's deliverances. Then was thinking about the term "Mahnaim". I knew this was one of the places Jacob the patriarch had named on his journey back to Canaan.As two camps meet in conflict the result is peaceful separation. Just before the meeting Jacob pitches his tents on one of the hills by the Jabbok, heart though filled with fear, he realizes the spiritual significance of the place and in the super-natural sees the angelic encampment around him. He instantly knows God Himself was bringing him peacefully back into Canaan. The Angelic encampment causes him to name the place "Mahanaim" which means "this is the camp of God".

O Lord may my tents be the place of God's encampment. I know it is. I am in your hiding place, I hide in the holy of holies and this is a new place and new strategy of warfare. Satan and all dominion of evil knows that their plans/schemes cannot chase me in the hiding place because they know who they will meet there.

I love your ways O Lord. This is none other than the camp of God!

Shalom & blessings

Are you a Prince Or a Pauper?

I recently finished reading "The supernatural ways of Royalty" by Kris Vallatoon and Bill Johnson and thoroughly enjoyed it. We who are called as heirs and friends of Jesus need to know that we are truly the royal Princes & Priests of God's ever advancing Kingdom. This understanding needs to be so deep resulting in us living a life that is a of knowing it with an intentional (purposeful) conscience-ness. The prince mentality is something we need to cultivate if we are not consciously aware of it. The Christ related people are a different breed; altogether a new race of people that has not been seen before on the face of the earth. We are called by Him to live life in victory as we emerge and operate from a position of victory which is what supernatural royalty does naturally.

Last December we saw the movie "Tangled" on our vacation and we thoroughly enjoyed watching it again with the kids. Its truly a Kingdom movie as it refletcs some deep scriptural truths. The princess is locked up in a tower by not only an evil step mother who has used her for her selfish purposes but keeps from her the true identity of who she is. Yet destiny of our royalty beckons; Her quest to see the lighted laterns turns and eventually will lead to her true home, to her true father. The road is not easy, its dangerous, its filled with life threatening battles. In the journey she meets a prince who is struggling with his own identity. He somehow knows he is much more, (he is a prince inside but does not know it)as circumstances of life and the enemy desires keep him from his destiny and is reduced him to be a petty thief always running. But occasion for true love, and true and unselfish love finds their way. He rises to the rescue. On the other hand lies fall off the princess, the truth sets her free to know who she really is. The enemy will stand none of these developments and will kill, destroy and attempt to completely annihilate their history of true identity. But Eugene (previously flynn rider) fights and is ready to give up his life, so the one he loves can have life.

Though I have summarized this through the lens of the movie, the true story of Christ and his bride is similar and He beckons us to know who we are in Him, His majesty has revealed our true nature of royalty. Those who know not... are paupers. Its interesting in the book Kris quotes from Proverbs "What happens if you give a pauper the Kingdom?..It eventually crumbles because it cannot bear the weight of the fools folly". The evil one is bent on inducing destruction, but the Life giver is bent on giving us life and hence this battle of good and evil continues, but the paradigm shift happens when those who are in Christ know and reveal themselves as the Prince & Princesses who overcome by their royal nature. I like to think it as Graham Cooke in his book "Coming Into Alignment" quotes "When we have identified our royalty in Christ we know we have two things the favor of the Lord and constant opportunity to wreck vengeance on the plans of the enemy". I like to add that the more we are fascinated by His majesty the more favor pouring comes on our lives and automatically opportunities are set up for defeating the enemy. Taking back out castles and thrones, recovering kingdoms that are really ours become the norm. Again the most important thing to remember is the position is operating from victory rather than for victory...(ways of a Royalty).

I have finally added the soundtrack of the song "I see the Light" from the movie, which I think is appropriate here. Because when royalty realizes & recognizes who they are they find dreams are fulfilled and most importantly the fog is lifted and we see the true "Light"

Jesus said "I am the Light" of the world.

Bethel Trip

Last week I was in California in Redding and what a wonderful time to soak up the anointing from a small church in Bethel. The dew of heavens blessing was upon me and my family as lot of prophetic words and confirmations were poured into my life by people that I don't even know. Without going into details, the time was extraordinary, very blessed by God's outpouring in this season and the things that He is teaching us. Increasingly I am aware of practicing living in and bringing in the supernatural in the natural, but more than that what I want is to live from His presence than just merely live by kingdom principles. Signs and wonders are to follow us than us chasing for them, goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life. Its how Prince's are suppose to live (more about that in another post). 

Highlights of the events were meeting new friends, Josh, Natalee, Brian and Lorilee can't wait to hear the war exploits coming from you. I am so enriched by seeking the anointing of Bill Johnson and other pastoral staff at Bethel, my life is enriched and the grace on my life has multiplied. Hearing Andrew White, the vicar of Baghdad once again reminded me of how my life is connected to the rich heritage of the Lord's calling on our family and the connection with that ancient calling of the faith of my fathers. The healing room experiences, the prayer time at the Alabaster house and empowering environment of the the saints point to the One that Rocks my world everyday!!

These are just reminders in the journey. I am Blessed. 

Shalom & Blessings,
