How’s it going?!

Wow! It’s been about a month since I’ve posted anything.  It was not due to lack of motivation, laziness or disinterest; but rather focus. I’ve been reading “Issuing Divine Restraining Orders in the Courts of Heaven,” by Dr. Francis Myles. If you have not read this book, I highly recommend it; but first read Robert Henderson’s “Operating in the Courts of Heaven” book. As citizens of the Kingdom of Heaven, it’s important to know and understand how the kingdom operates; as well as our rights. I’ve also been reading The Book of Jasher;  which gives a meatier account of the Pentateuch. You can get it here for free. I have really been enthralled in these books; as well as learning so much. My favorite part has been reading and sharing with my kids. When we were reading about the 12 sons of Israel (Jacob) and the supernatural strengths of each son, I asked my children what was their favorite part? My six year old (Judah), told me that learning about Judah and Naphtali was his favorite part; because Judah was the Hulk and Naphtali was the Flash. I laughed and told him he was absolutely right! It takes a kid to simplify things!

Other than that, I’ve been enjoying the time with my family; as well as watching my neighbors spend time with their families. Yesterday, we took our first boating trip of the season. It was fantastic! I am always in awe of the beauty of God’s creation. It was so peaceful and enjoyable. I’m also happy to share that my four year old (Hannah Banana) has mastered riding her two-wheel bike with pedals! Now my two year old (Livy Grace) is the proud owner of Hannah’s former two wheel pedaless bike. She is so happy with her “new” bike! Since all of the fun places are closed, playing out doors, feeding the neighbor’s chickens, bike riding, flying, playing with cousins and going to grandma’s house might’ve taken their places.

 

Well, that’s all I have for now. How’s it going with you?! I hope your hearts, eyes and ears are focused on God, despite what is going on around us. Have an excellent weekend and I’ll “see” you soon!

 

March Blessings

Each month, I write about the blessings that took place to honor YHWH/God and to remind myself and others of His goodness and faithfulness. During the month of March, I was so grateful for the comfort of YHWH’s/God’s word…especially Psalm 91. For the past year or so, my children and I had been saying this declaration daily. As a result, when many were fearful of the virus, we were unmoved. I take comfort in knowing that power, love and a sound mind comes from YHWH/God; and fear is beneath me, because it doesn’t come from Him. This is why speaking YHWH/God’s word aloud daily, is so vitally important (and powerful).

It has been nice seeing families sitting outside on the porch together; as well as walking riding bikes and playing together. I have also appreciated seeing neighbors greet each other and hold conversations (from a little bit of a distance). I’ve enjoyed this time or rest and restoration so much! I’ve spent more time in YHWH/God’s presence, and have so thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated His love for us. YHWH/God loves us SO much!! I’ve so appreciated the relaxed schedule and just being with my husband and children.

I’m grateful to YHWH/God yet again, for His leadership and guidance. He sees all and knows all. My husband and I have confessed for years that the word of YHWH/God is the standard for our lives; and that we trust that He CAN NOT mismanage our lives. About a year ago, YHWH/God  told us to take all of our money out of the stock market. We didn’t know why; but we did it. Fast forward to now; and we are so grateful for how He takes care of the details of our life.

I often say, I don’t know how people go through life without YHWH/God. I tried it for a few months many years ago; and I can tell you, it’s was like walking around with a blindfold on; and with my ears plugged. If I didn’t know YHWH/God today, I would get to know Him quick, fast and in a hurry! Don’t waste your time or life, get to know Him today. Say this prayer to invite YHWH/God to be the Lord and savior of your life.

Many blessings,

Yonka

 

Children’s Prayer of Provision

2 Corinthians 9:8 (TPT) – Yes, God is more than ready to overwhelm you with every form of grace, so that you will have more than enough of everything—every moment and in every way. He will make you overflow with abundance in every good thing you do. 

2 Corinthians 9:10 – 11 (TPT) – This generous God who supplies abundant seed for the farmer, which becomes bread for our meals,is even more extravagant toward you. First he supplies every need, plus more. Then he multiplies the seed as you sow it, so that the harvest of your generosity will grow. 11 You will be abundantly enriched in every way as you give generously on every occasion, for when we take your gifts to those in need, it causes many to give thanks to God.

Psalm 84:11 – For the Lord God is brighter than the brilliance of a sunrise! Wrapping himself around me like a shield, he is so generous with his gifts of grace and glory. Those who walk along his paths with integrity will never lack one thing they need, for he provides it all!

 

Heavenly Father,

2 Corinthians 9:8 says You give me way more than I need;

So that I can bless others  (according to Genesis 12:2) and sow more seed.

You are so generous, you give me more than enough,

Wisdom, family & friends, food and cool stuff.

Direct me to the people who came to you in prayer,

And I thank you for the honor of being the answer you’d prepare.

In Yeshua’s name,

Amen

Children’s Prayer of Protection

Psalm 121:7-8 (TPT) – He will keep you from every form of evil or calamity as he continually watches over you. 8 You will be guarded by God Himself. You will be safe when you leave your home and safely you will return. He will protect you now, and he’ll protect you forevermore!

Heavenly Father,

Thank you for knowing that I would sometimes feel fear;

And for assuring me that, You’d always be here.

What a relief is Psalm 121: 7- 8…

It says: You guard me Yourself! This makes me feel great!

You promised to protect me wherever I go,

And it brings me comfort, just to know….

That you are the ultimate promise keeper.

In  Yeshua’s name,

Amen

Children’s Prayer for Courage

Deuteronomy 31:6 (MEV) – Be strong and of a good courage. Fear not, nor be afraid of them, for the Lord your God, it is He who goes with you. He will not fail you, nor forsake you.”

2 Timothy 1:7 (NKJV) – For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

Heavenly Father,

You promised to be with me wherever I go,

Deuteronomy 31:6 tells me so.

You said You’ll never fail, or leave me;

So I can be strong, courageous and  worry free.

2 Timothy 1:7 says:

I have power, love and my mind is sound;

So I’m moving forward and taking ground.

No one can stop me according to Joshua 1:5

I’m rejoicing in You &  blessed to be alive!

 

In Yeshua’s name,

Amen

Children’s Prayer for Peace In Jerusalem

Psalm 122:6 (TPT) – Pray and seek for Jerusalem’s peace, for all who love her will prosper!

Heavenly Father,

I love Jerusalem because you do,

I pray for its peace and prosperity too.

Give its leaders wisdom, to lead as you will,

And the people the heart,

to be the city on top of the hill.

 

In Yeshua’s name,

Amen

Children’s Prayer for Leaders & Nation

1 Timothy 2:1 – 2 (TPT) – Most of all, I’m writing to encourage you to pray with gratitude to God. Pray for all men with all forms of prayers and requests as you intercede with intense passion. 2 And pray for every political leader and representative, so that we would be able to live tranquil, undisturbed lives, as we worship the awe-inspiring God with pure hearts. 

Proverbs 21:1 (TPT) – It’s as easy for God to steer a king’s heart for his purposes as it is for him to direct the course of a stream.

Job 12:23 (AMP) – “He makes nations great, and He destroys them; He enlarges nations, and leads them away [captive].

 

Heavenly Father,

I pray for our leaders, to hear and obey your voice;

Concerning our nation, so they’d make the right choice…

To honor You alone; and work in unity,

So the people can experience a time of jubilee.

In Yeshua’s name,

Amen

God’s Dependable Word

Yesterday, I had loaded the kids into the car to take them to swim lessons. Well, my car didn’t move. The wheels spun around and around. I sat there and prayed. I then got out  and looked under the tires; only to discover that there was a sheet of ice under them. I  put sand under the tires; then got back in, to try and pull off. Nothing! The wheels continued to spin. After about 20 minutes of trying to figure out how to get this car to move, I asked the Holy Spirit. What do I do? I heard:” Speak to it.” I got out of the car. I pointed to my car and said: “In the name of Yeshua, I command you to back out gently.” I sat back in the car and waited a few minutes.  I then put the car in reverse and pressed the gas. Nothing happened. I just started praising God; because I knew I heard His voice; and that the enemy was trying to bring doubt. I gently pressed on the gas; and the car went in reverse; and I was able to get the kids to swim lessons.

The previous night, I had been meditating on Mark 11:23 (NIV) – “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them.” An opportunity presented itself for me to apply the very thing that I’d been meditating on the night before. At that moment, that situation was a mountain to me. My husband wasn’t home; and neither was my very helpful neighbor. I just praise God for His wisdom and the trustworthiness of His word!

A Children’s Prayer of Praise & Thanksgiving

Psalm 100:4 -5 (TPT)  – You can pass through his open gates with the password of praise. Come right into his presence with thanksgiving. Come bring your thank offering to Him and affectionately bless His beautiful name! 5 For the Lord is always good and ready to receive you. He’s so loving that it will amaze you— so kind that it will astound you! And He is famous for His faithfulness toward all. Everyone knows our God can be trusted, for He keeps His promises to every generation!

Father,

It’s my honor and pleasure to give you praise,

The Almighty, Omnipotent, Ancient of Days.

You are the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end,

The Omniscient One who created the seas and the wind.

I thank you O Lord, for Your mercy and grace,

And for being with me, know matter what I face.

Your word (2 Corinthians 2:14) says You always cause me to win,

You’re the One on whom, I can always depend.

Thank you O Lord for all that You’ve done;

And for the ultimate sacrifice of Your son.

I love You and need you more than air,

And I thank you precious Father, for always being there.

In Yeshua’s name,

Amen

A Children’s Prayer of Forgiveness

Mark 11:25 (NKJV)And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses.

Matthew 5:44 -45 (TPT)However, I say to you, love your enemy, bless the one who curses you, do something wonderful for the one who hates you, and respond to the very ones who persecute you by praying for them. 45 For that will reveal your identity as children of your heavenly Father. He is kind to all by bringing the sunrise to warm and rainfall to refresh whether a person does what is good or evil. 

Lord,

I forgive myself and all who have hurt me.

I receive your forgiveness, grace and mercy.

Bless my enemies;

and help them turn from their wicked ways,

So that they can come into Your kingdom

and give you all the praise.

In Yeshua’s name,

Amen
