Coronoavirus: The Prayer

Hopefully this will be the last time that I discuss the Coronavirus on my blog. Not to say that I don’t think it is important to be in the known and take the necessary precautions, but that I am deliberately choosing to spread hope and not fear. So, today, I ask that you all join me in prayer, and remember that all you need is faith the size of a mustard seed.

Father God,

We come to You today asking for Your favor, God. Lord, we thank You for all that You have done for us, and all that You continue to do for us. How blessed are we to have You as our protector and provider. We see that people are being let go left and right, we see that the elderly are being attacked by this plague, we see it all Lord, but we have faith in You. We have faith in Your vision, and we aren’t afraid Lord, for You told us to cast all of our worries unto You. You told us to not worry about tomorrow, and that the spirit of fear is not of You, but a tactic of the enemy. We stand in agreement with You that everything will work itself out, Lord, because we have You going before each and everyone of us. We root ourselves in Psalms 91 Lord during this time, let no plague come near our homes. We pray for those that are out on the front lines, risking their health to care for others. We pray for the elderly and those that have compromised immune systems. We ask that You be with them Lord. Father God, we thank You in advance for what You are about to do for this nation.

In Jesus name

Amen.

2 Samuel

Last week I just felt so restless. I couldn’t figure out why, so I went to God about it, and He directed me to read 2 Samuel 12. So cliff notes version, David saw a married woman bathing and inquired about her. She ended up becoming pregnant with his child. David tried to get her spouse to go home and lay with her. Why? To cover up his sin. The man wouldn’t go, so David had him placed in the front line so that he would be killed.


God didn’t like this, so instead of punishing David by striking him down right then and there, He attacked his bloodline. David’s son that was conceived in sin, was taken by the Lord. His other children raped and killed among one another. David had to live with this shame, the loss of a child, and the friction in his family.


Honestly, this bothered me so much that I just sat there, and kept asking why. Why God did You punish this child for his father’s mistakes. And then I realized that we aren’t supposed to be comfortable with sin.


So backtracking just a bit, I think it is important to note that I have been repenting for any inequities in my bloodline. My family actually has a history of child loss. My great grandmother had a stillbirth and lost her twin sister at a very early age.


I want you to take a moment and reflect on the questions they ask you when you go to the doctor. They ask about any problems or concerns that have affected someone in your family, right?


Neither trauma, sin, or death was apart of God’s plan for us. Our actions affect generations to come. Look at how Adam and Eve’s decision has affected us all.


This week, I want you to go before The Lord and repent for any inequities plaguing your bloodline. Don’t let anything be used against you by the devil. Take away the case that he has prepared against your bloodline.


You see, I felt so off last week because God needed me to repent for my ancestors to free up generations to come. I truly believe that God had me type of this message because He needs you to be obedient and free up your bloodline.

Prayer For Monday

Dear Heavenly Father,

I ask that You are with us today as we go about our morning routines. I ask that You are with us as we are preparing to start our work week. As always, let no weapon formed against us prosper, let no lies whispered in our minds take root. Lord, we cast out fear and any negative talks about ourselves. Those lies, we cast down to our feet, and we step over them, Lord.

Lord, we also pray for those alerts that we keep receiving on our phones and in the news. Lord, we pray for the safety of our children, and that lost children will be found unharmed. We pray for this nation. There is so much sin and corruption going on Lord, but we put on our armor of protection, and drown out all the noise.

Today, Lord, I am declaring that it will be a joyful day. I am declaring clarity for this week. I am declaring that miracles will happen, and that more will turn towards You.

Amen.

Updates

Hey guys!

We close on our house next Friday! One thing that I have learned through this whole ordeal, is to have patience. There is a lot of documents that you have to go through or give to the lender before close.

I have started reading the Armor of God, and I can’t wait to share how I have incorporated the teachings into my everyday life. Look out for a post Saturday or Sunday discussing week one’s application.

I recorded my first podcast episode, and got it approved by Apple yesterday. Here is a link to it https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/parenting-after-loss/id1490238718. I would really love it if you were able to give me some feedback on it. I’ve never done anything like this before, so any feedback would be great.

Lastly, please keep my family in your prayers. We received some troubling news last night about my cousin and his family. The baby that they were expecting in June 2020, sadly passed away yesterday. I’m looking into putting a care package together to help them during this time. Unfortunately, they will have to have surgery. I believe they were too far along for the baby to pass on its own, I’m not completely sure about the process since my loss was a stillbirth.

Testimony Thursday

August 28th, I was in first car accident. It was around 9 pm when I was travelling home from working the late shift. I had my phone on speaker, so that I could listen in on a master class. I have a 40 minute commute to and from work. I had everything set up before I even drove off of campus, because a distracted driver is a dangerous driver.

The master class had just begun as I was merging into the far right lane. I stayed back a bit in case the semi that was in the southbound lane needed to go northbound instead. After a minute, it seemed as though the semi was truly going southbound, so I felt comfortable speeding up. I was almost up the ramp, when the semi changed its mind, and merged into my lane.

I was terrified, but so thankful to God that my son was not in the car, and that I was not hurt. My car was deemed a total loss by insurance, and while I had gap insurance, my car had previous damage to it, so gap informed me that they would not be covering the difference.

I was distraught.

Not only was I shaken up by the ordeal, but I now had to get a new vehicle with no money to put down. I also still owed money on my old car. I could dwell and dwell on this, so instead I made the conscious decision to take my problems to the Lord. My circumstances were telling me that I was in a worst position than before. The enemy was trying to stop me from getting the message from the master class. The enemy took my car, but my cousin had a spare that I was able to use. I stayed prayed up, and God blessed me with a better and safer car for my family. God allowed me to get a much better deal on the car loan than my previous one. God pushed me to sign up for the program that resulted from the master class, and I’m already seeing results. I put in some more hours at work to cover what was left to pay on my old loan, and to my surprise, God blessed me again.

I received a letter from the car loan company telling me that my account was closed and paid in full. Hallelujah! I thanked God because I knew it was by His will. This was all a couple of weeks ago, so I had thought that the previous car loan was done. This morning when I checked my mail, I had a note from the loan company. One letter was telling me that my account was paid in full, And that they owed me money! The second letter was a check from them. I began to weep as I was reading the letter because it was so unexpected, and I am just so grateful for our Provider.

Today, I urge all of you to stop and give thanks to Him. He takes care of all of our needs, and makes sure that we are not without.

I just wanted to share with you all, that staying steadfast in your faith, is the greatest peace of all.
