Fast Wednesdays: Week of October 1, 2015 – “Getting our Houses in Order” Part III – FOCUS

Greetings Beloved!

As you can see I am a day late but its on my heart to get something out this week, so here goes…short but prayerful. This week’s Fast Wednesday is in honor of my colleague and friend who is retiring today but effective 12/31/15, I will miss her dearly on sametime (instant messaging). Its also in memory of my cousin Donald Autry who passed on Monday, September 28, 2015…another “good” one gone too soon, prayers to Laverne, Tonya, Dynisha and Janelle as you grieve this significant loss in your lives remember PSALM 23 and we love you …
F – FAITH Hebrews 11:1
     True FAITH produces loving actions towards others
O – OBEDIENCE 1 Samuel 15:22
     Obedience and other acts of devotion should be done only from the heart.
C – CLARITY John 10:10
     Ask for courage, discernment, & “an open curtain to see where frustration, fear, anger, and discord are coming from”
U – UNITY  Ephesians 3:10, Hebrews 10:24-25 and Philippians 2:24
     In relationships.
S – SUCCESS – Jeremiah 29:11
     That’s what God wants for all of us! Nothing less…

Remember, the battle is not YOURS but the LORDS … and recalling God’s promises destroys doubts.

Prayer:
Dear Father … SELAH … Amen … (This week you prayer for us … fill in the blanks)

“WAR”

I’ve got joy in my soul
God is in control
I got Satan on my trail
But I’m singing all is well
He’s attacking every day
But I’m watching while I pray
No matter the attack I won’t turn back

This means war
This means
This means war
This means
This means war
This means
This means war

I’ve got joy in my soul
God is in control
I got Satan on my trail
But I’m singing all is well
He’s attacking every day
But I’m watching while I pray
No matter the attack I won’t turn back

This means war
This means
This means war
This means
This means war
This means
This means war

I plead the blood
I plead, I plead the blood
There’s power in the blood
I plead, I plead the blood
Healing in the blood
I plead, I plead the blood
Power in the blood
I plead, I plead the blood

I’ve been in the storm and the rain
But the blood still stays the same
Whatever’s going wrong
My war clothes are on
I might be in a daze
But you can’t have my praise
No matter the attack I won’t turn back

This means war
This means
This means war
This means
This means war
This means
This means war

You can’t have my family
You can’t have my increase
You can’t have my breakthrough
You can’t have my
You can’t have my
You can’t
You can’t
You can’t
I plead

I plead, I plead the blood
There’s power in the blood
I plead, I plead the blood
A prayer of protection
I plead, I plead the blood
A prayer of provision
I plead, I plead the blood

This means
This means war
There’s power in your praise
This means war
Prayer changes things
This means war
You can’t take this lying down
This means war

Say this means
This means war
This means war

Love, Joy and Peace, 
Debra J. Ellis

Reminder AND/OR for those of you just joining us: The purpose of Fast Wednesdays is to draw near to God on this specific day of the week fasting and praying in whatever manner the Holy Spirit is leading you as sisters (and some brothers) in Christ…some have fasted from social media, coffee, or observed a traditional fast with no eating from sunrise to sunset with only liquids for the day, no deserts, etc. I know many of us, for various reasons, participate every week but in different manners. This has still been beneficial and the blog continues to grow!

The key ingredient is that we are doing this together as sisters, of all ages, in the Lord, both chronologically and spiritually in accordance to: A God-Filled Life Titus 2:3-5 “Guide older women into lives of reverence so they end up as neither gossips nor drunks, but models of goodness. By looking at them, the younger women will know how to love their husbands and children, be virtuous and pure, keep a good house, be good wives. We don’t want anyone looking down on God’s Message because of their behavior.”  Note: Please share Fast Wednesdays with your friends and/or send me names to add to the distribution list. For now, I will post in three places: email (djf52055@gmail.com), Facebook (Debra Fuller Ellis) and blog in Word Press: https://fastwednesdays.wordpress.com/Focus
