Seeking Prayer/Freedom/Breakthrough

Hi

Thanks in advance. I’m seeking prayer for breaking of strongholds over my mind. I struggle with insecurity/self doubt/being unsure/fearful of others and fear. I’m pressing into God hectictly and have been doing so for a long while. This issue is very up and down. Hard to explain but I’ll try. It’s feels like a spiritual stronghold because I know the truth that God accepts me and loves me, so when I meditate on that truth in my mind, I feel insecure/fearfulness and above issues go away and is replaced with rest and peace. The thing is this is a real struggle when I try to apply/meditate on this truth. It’s like there’s a LOT of resistance to it, and eventually if I really keep resisting and meditating on God loves me and accepts me I break free for a time in a place of rest and victory. But it seems to be short-lived. And there’s a sense of temptation to come out of the place. It really feels like satan REALLY doesn’t want me to be in that protection and security in God for fear of what it may lead to in me standing for God etc.

Its just frustrating because it seems like I can’t get permanent freedom in this area so my sense of security/freedom is very up and down (erratic). I can go from like peace and security to like fear and torment really quickly. I would just ask for prayer for breakthrough and specifically a strength to be able to stand my ground and stand steadfast and established in God’s love and acceptance of me by faith (basically being established and rooted in this truth) and being rooted in His grace.

Ta you so much for the prayer, and if anyone is willing to speak to God and get insight and understanding from the Holy Spirit would be very grateful.

Thanks Again
Daniel

    I have just moved to Australia from Canada 2 months ago. At the beginning of this year I gave my life to Christ, two weeks ago I was water baptized. Now I have been called to fast and am on day 2 of 3. I am praying for an overflowing personal relationship with the Lord and want to know the direction and calling He has for my life. My whole being absolutely aches to know and be more in God. I’ve had many “God Moments” throughout my life, but it’s no longer enough. My enthusiasm for exploring my new community and getting involved with people doesn’t even entice me. I only want to know Jesus and feel the Holy Spirit and then fulfill the calling on my life.

    I an open to receiving your prayers, thoughts and suggestions.

  2. I’m not setup at the moment for skype, but will be in the near future…thanks…My fast is in it’s 2nd day and I feel like I’m being cleansed from the inside out…I’ve fasted before…I am a prodigal son who walked away from God after a painful divorce in 1995…I never stopped talking to Him, and He has never let me down…He has answered prayers when I’ve prayed for myself and others, but I haven’t been ready to walk with Him like I used to until recently…I have no doubt that He is working in my life to bring me to even a greater walk with Him than I’ve experienced in the past…I live in Nevada now, after moving from Colorado in 1995…When I came here, the Spirit of God told me that He was going to give me the whole state of Nevada, by moving mightily through ministry…I was feeling a lot of pain because of a divorce that didn’t have to happen…losing 23 years of marriage is easier said than done…Needless to say, the last few years have been thought provoking to say the least…I used to be a hardcore biker before accepting Christ, and had planned to murder a man one month before I was born from above…that was 30 years ago…I was born again through a very powerful experience, so I have known the Power of Jesus since my spiritual birth…I have also known His Love for me since that time…The first time I heard His voice, I was only 3 years old…I cannot tell you what He said, but WE ARE ALL HERE for a very special purpose…because of what He told me at the age of 3 years, I know that we are facing the end times…it’s now time for me to take my place in the Body where I am supposed to be…I’m ready now…I hope to be a part of this site for years to come, and please continue to pray for me, as I will for you…May the Love of our Father and King flood over everyone here like a mighty flood…May His Presence and Power set you all free…so be it…

    • And its great that you have renewed your commitment to go after the Lord.

      Severe disappointment is one of the toughest challenges we face. I’ve been through it too a few years ago.

      The battle is real. But our God is great. And He will help us. We have many promises, and there are many testimonies of God’s faithfulness.

      Dare to win in this current fast you are doing.

      I hope to see you online. My skype id you can find: its michaelf8888. We want to hook praying people up together and see great things happen.

  3. I am seeking deliverance from alcohol. Today I’ve started fasting and have set no goals as to when I will stop. I have recently given my life back to Jesus, and just want to be free once again…Please help…Please pray for me…thank you…

      Jokerb,

      Addiction of any kind is hard to beat.

      I am concerned that you haven’t thought through your fasting. You can’t just fast until you think you will give up alcohol. You need to eat and drink (as in water) normally so that your body can be healthy. Trying to detox and not eat can be dangerous. God will understand if you just commit yourself to prayer and learn to eat normal meals.

      My father is an ex-alcoholic, not eating regularly is one of the things that makes it hard for your body to give up alcohol and get better. You need others to support you and this isn’t something you just get over. When you kick an addiction you have to fight against it for the rest of your life. The more often you stay sober and the longer you stay sober the easier it is to not desire alcohol.

      Praying for God to break the curses spoke over you and I rebuke all temptation of alcohol of your life, in Jesus Name. May the Lord give you wisdom and guidance in your walk with Him, may the lord give you maturity that enables you to have self control one of the friuts of the spirit so you can stop you addiction to alcohol and live your life for the Lord. In Jesus Name Amen

      Please re-think your fasting it will not help you right now with your body de-toxing.

      • I appreciate your concern…thank you…

        I first started drinking and taking drugs when I was 13 years old…to make a long story short, I lived a very violent life until the age of 24 years…At that time, I accepted Christ, through an Apostle Paul type of conversion…Nobody told me to accept Christ, as I was home alone when Jesus visited me…

        When I met Him, I asked Him to set me free of my desire to drink, fight and live the violent lifestyle that I was living…I was actually blessed to go on to Pastor, walk in the office of the Prophet, and be a Teacher…To say this was awesome is a gross understatement…lol

        Over the years, He taught me to trust in Him…The only reason that I started drinking again is a long story that deals with an ex-wife who was not faithful to me, a divorce, and much pain and anger…That’s not an excuse…it is a reason…

        I started going to church shortly after moving from Colorado to Nevada in 1995…I walked into the church, after being gone for awhile, and I was seeking help at that time…I was seeking prayer…

        The Spirit of God spoke to me during the service and told me that He had sent me there to minister, not to be ministered to…He also told me that I would Pastor this small church…

        I was still very angry, and felt very inadequate to do anything for God…I was filled with guilt, shame, anger and rage…and here God was telling me that I was sent there to minister…

        Needless to say, I told God no…I walked out of that church and never went back…3 months later that church closed it’s doors…

        I could have helped by giving my life as the minister that God had created, rather than wallow in my own selfishness and only thinking of myself…only thinking of being ministered too…

        I tried going to AA…AA works for some…not for me…it never has…I even admitted myself to a hospital to de-tox and went through 5 months of intense therapy with a christian counselor…it didn’t help…

        There has only been One Way for me to get free and stay free of anything that I entered into that I shoudn’t have, and that is to seek Jesus…

        I have one desire…and that is to finish the work that Jesus has sent me to Nevada to finish…

        I am not trying to be sarcastic when I say this…but here is how I feel at this time…I have indeed thought through the fasting that I am doing…You see, I know alcohol and drugs will kill me if I continue in them…I am very aware of this, having been married to the bottle and drugs off and on in my life…

        Death does not scare me…and no, I do not have a death wish (anymore)…:)

        If I must die…I must die seeking God through fasting and prayer…If I must die…I must die trying to accomplish His work…If I must die…I will be walking with my God…amen

          Hi JokerB

          Just to let you know I’ve been praying for you.

          Cheers
          Mel

          • After several days fasting and seeking God, I am BACK WALKING IN HIS GLORIOUS PRESENCE!!!

            Health wise, my blood pressure has dropped from 176/112…to 117/77…amen…I am back to working out and taking care of His Temple, eating right…amen

            I walked very close to God many years ago, and He is fast re-newing and making alive everything He has taught me, and is adding to what He allowed me to walk in so many years ago…

            When you fast and pray, faith no longer becomes a struggle…I have realized, without Him…I can do nothing…

            Saints…it’s not over till He says it is!!!

            Thank you so very much, and please continue to pray…I too, am continuing to pray for you…

            May the Light of His Great Love shine into and through you in these dark times…so be it…I love you Saints

          • A great testimony to the power of fasting and the mercy of God.

          • Thank you for being here my friend…

            I am currently working on building a website…I will be posting podcasts as well as posting articles of teaching…

            When I was a minister in Colorado, God taught me only one thing…His Love for people…I learned how much He loved me personally through much study of His Word, and much prayer…this is a subject that I desired to know, simply because I was not raised in an atmosphere of love, but one of violence, drugs and alcohol…

            Because of what He taught me, I never blamed Him for my backslidden state, as I know it was my own doing…in fact, He actually kept me alive through it all, when I should have died…

            After I get this site going, I will send you the address…I think that the revelation that He has given me will help anyone who reads or hears…He’s given me a spirit to teach…amen

            On a personal note…thank you for being here…you will never know how much encouragement I have found here as I read the testimonies of Gods Great Heart…amen…

          • peteresther says:

            Jokerb, this is such a heart warming testimony! May you go from strength to strength in His strength! What an encouragement you are going to be to people who find themselves in the situation you have been in!

            I would also like to encourage you to put on the full armour of God, to confess scriptures which say who you are in Christ, to praise the Lord for what He has done, for who He is. God inhabits the praises of His people, and in His presence is truly the fullness of joy!

            I find the easiest and nicest way of being in His presence, is to listen to praise and worship music! I love lots of Christian music, especially John Starnes (I can hear in his voice how much he loves Jesus, and he has one of the best voices out there imo!)

            All blessings, Esther

          • Yes, I agree…When I seek God I go into my computer room, shut the door and play praise and worship music while I am praying…

            I run a machine shop, so I have alot of time on my hands as I work…I have an ipod that I have downloaded the bible, worship and praise music, and some books on prayer, that I listen to throughout the day…

            I look forward to many more small fasts yet to come throughout the year…

            My goal is to be the exact image of Jesus, as He confessed to be the exact image of the Father…we are to be like our Master…

            Many years ago, the Spirit of God spoke to me and said,”THERE WILL COME A TIME, WHEN PEOPLE SHALL KNOW THE GOODNESS AND THE SEVERITY OF GOD.” I believe that we are entering that time…

            I believe that we must strive to go deeper than we have ever sought in the things of God…

            I thank Him, and am very grateful to Him to have found a place like this, where people like me can come to get encouragement, help and prayer…

            this is church…amen

            Praise God!

            I’m glad to hear your news.

            Thanks for letting us know.

            I’m going through a trial of my own at the moment a Test of Faith for something.

            I am encouraged to hear you ahve your breakthrough after your diligence in prayer and fasting.

            Cheers

          • for your encouraging words…

            Melody, let me tell you a little story that happened to me as I prayed in church one morning before going to work…

            This was about 25 years ago…The church that I attended at the time was going through some trouble. As I walked back and forth, praying in the Spirit by the altar…the Spirit of God spoke to me and said,”DON’T LOOK TO THE BATTLE…BUT LOOK TO THE LORD, FOR HE IS THE ONE WHO GIVES THE VICTORY.”

            I realize all too well that in the midst of battle, this is sometimes easier said than done…but my friend, let me encourage you with this…

            Read Luke 10:27…see the word “LOVE?” …It is a verb, an action word and it means to act upon the word given, which is LOVE… Here is the meaning of that word…TO LOVE IN A SOCIAL AND MORAL SENSE…TO LONG FOR…TO SPEND TIME WITH…TO PRIZE ABOVE OTHER THINGS…TO BE UN-WILLING TO ABANDON OR TO DO WITHOUT…Can you see how this is an invitation to go to the Creator of all things, to you personally? An invitation from the Creator, to hang around Him, and communicate?

            As I studied this verse of scripture, I asked the Lord, “O.K, you want me to love you like this…what am I going to get out of it?” I know that this sounds a little bold and selfish at the same time, but the Spirit of God wanted me to ask this question so that He could really show me how much He loves me…

            His response was, “ALWAYS REMEMBER…I WILL NEVER ASK YOU TO DO SOMETHING TOWARDS ME, THAT I HAVEN’T ALREADY ACCOMPLISHED TOWARDS YOU…LOOK AT JOHN 3:16.”

            So I turned to John 3:16, and He said”I have already loved you first…I already long for you first…I have already been un-willing to abandon you, or do without you first…I prized you above my own life…first…I desired to spend time with you, communicating with you first.”

            You see…Faith in God, is born out of the knowledge of His Love for you personally, and the above is how much He loves you personally, as well as anyone else reading this…Study His Word in the light of His Love and the scriptures and your prayer life will come alive…Faith is not a struggle, it’s a Power born from a Loving relationship…

            Be filled to the full with His Presence and Power, and above all, the knowledge and understanding of how much He loves you personally…amen

          • Praise the Lord!! I’m so happy for you Jokerb. 🙂 You are back to where God wants you!! He has promised He will never leave your, nor forsake you and to complete the good work He has started in you. You will be in my prayers. So exciting to see how joyful and excited you are. The Lord is amazing and so faithful. Thanks for sharing your praise report!!
