DANCE OF FIRE
I wrote the content on this blog with sincere and holy intentions with the knowledge that I had at the time... We live, learn and amend...as errors are exposed and more truths are revealed...
Only GOD is perfect. It's vital that you seek the Lord to expose any errors that you've embraced. Please ask Him to expose any areas of darkness to you and for what is necessary to do to dispossess what's NOT of truth.
Flames of fire dance joyfully as dreams of fervor conjure up images of red hot passion for the gusto of life.
Sizzle, spark, explode -
Fireballs light up the sky. Wow! a thunder flash with a clap -
The flames are vivid with the awesome glow of orange colors blended with yellow highlights that accent the blaze.
This display is the bomb torched with a rocket plan. Such rapture has lit our fire. We are dynamite on this journey.
Come on fire, fall on us. Pour your liquid potency. Ignite our souls that we may be engulfed with magnified intensity.
Blow up our hearts. Dance with us....

PRAYER FOR THE ADDICTED...ADDICTED TO THE MINISTRY - 1 CORINTHIANS 16:15
This date, I had not planned to post, but of course, we know that GOD changes our plans...
It was interesting that this evening I watched on TBN, a Christian man, Ben Ward, who is on staff at a faith-based program called Eagle Creek Recovery Center - http://www.eaglecreekrecoverycenter.com/. He gave his testimony that from the age of 12, he began to drink alcohol which led to pot, and a crack cocaine addiction. It was interesting because Ben's testimony was broadcast on the same date (original broadcast date was yesterday - re-broadcast today) that I posted my last installment of "...HE LEFT ME AND MOVED IN WITH THE WOMAN NEXT DOOR..." http://lioneaglesoar.blogspot.com/2011/02/part-4-he-left-me-and-moved-in-with.html For those who may not have read the subject post, it had mentions of crack addiction.
Ben testified that before he became a staff member at Eagle Creek, he was a client there. He had these things to say:
- He became "intimately acquainted with truth."
- There is no freedom in sobriety to change the human heart.
- Only the indwelling Spirit of Almighty GOD can change the heart.
Ben went on to advise parents and other loved ones of addicts. He said to release them, and to stop giving them money... He said, "Get your hands off and GOD will get HIS hands on."
I praise GOD that Ben Ward shared his journey to freedom in CHRIST.
The prayer below is what our Lord told me to write and post. The prayer and scriptures that accompany it are available for copy/print/distribution on my blog FREELY RECEIVED FREELY GIVEN at http://www.giftsfromglory.blogspot.com/. Specifically, view under the separate tab there titled, "THE LORD DELIGHTS IN THE PRAYERS OF THE RIGHTEOUS." It is shown as the  prayer. For Conditions of usage, please read in the content at the top of the Home page of FREELY RECEIVED FREELY GIVEN.
PRAYER FOR ADDICTION STRONGHOLDS:
Pure and holy Father GOD, thank You that with You all things are possible. Your Word states that there is nothing too hard for You.
In this prayer, I decree deliverance and complete freedom for drug and alcohol addicts. Father, You know that among the many addicts, there are professional people* who are addicted, and that includes doctors and other medical professionals, some of who are addicted to prescription drugs. There are people all over this world who are gripped by the bondage of addiction. They are found in every economic class, race, culture, and persuasion.
Lord, I ask, according to Your Word, that You will set the captives free, set at liberty those who are bound, and send Your Word to heal them. Let Your holy saints go forth to love on those who are gripped by the strong holds of demonic addictions. Reveal the best ways to help them with Your Word as guide. Allow Your Holy Ghost power to move within the ensnared hearts, and lead the addicted to run into Your healing arms.
Work Your marvels, blessed Lord, and prove to the doubters that You reign. You are powerful beyond measure and only You can subdue and destroy the works of the Devil that hold people captive. Get the "monkeys off their backs," Lord, and put JESUS in their hearts. You are love, glorious Father GOD. Let, please, Your rivers of living water pour forth as a miraculous fountain to wash people clean with the operation of Your Word and JESUS' righteous blood. You are a Fortress, a Rock, a Strong Tower, and a very present help in the time of trouble.
Deliverance is a process. Process people, please Lord, through all of the necessary channels to reach triumphant victories. Equip them, glorious Father, to stand fully armored to vanquish the vicious "death" grips that Satan worked on them. Teach them to have life and to have it more abundantly. Let them taste and see that the Lord is good. Teach them to fight the good fight of faith through steadfast obedience to You and Your Word. Give them staying power. Show them how to fight on their knees and on their faces in full dependence on You. Remove them from toxic and negative relationships. Let Your awesome anointing flood the souls of the many thirsty people. Work in them, please, Lord, hearts that will not faint but press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of GOD in Christ JESUS.
For loved ones of addicts
Father, in the name of JESUS, help those who love and care for addicts. There are Christians who have loved ones who are addicted to drugs and alcohol. They hurt, Lord. Please help them to continue to believe Your Word and to trust You to deliver and to destroy the works of the Devil. Give them the strength to use their holy authority to keep faith in the powerful blood of JESUS. Teach them, please, Father, to be still and to know that You are GOD. Lead them to seek Your wisdom as to what to do, when, and how.
Assure them that they are NOT victims but blood bought heirs of You, Almighty GOD and joint heirs with JESUS. Guide them to know that they can have peace, joy, and Your blessed assurances in the midst of their storms. Let them shed the necessary tears of grief but then to dry their eyes and praise You, Lord. You promised to keep us in perfect peace when our minds are stayed on You.
Lord, those who are not Christians need salvation for themselves, and for their drug and alcohol addicted loved ones. Please reach the hearts of the unsaved and distressed. So many are in despair, Father. But You can change and liberate weary and despondent conditions. Please, Lord, prove to the many that are gripped by fear, pain and uncertainties that You love them hugely, and can effectively help in ALL matters.
Thank You, Lord - Amen.
Please, note the excerpt below from the above prayer:
"Father, You know that among the many addicts, there are professional people* who are addicted,..."
Imagine my surprise when today, Friday February 11, 2011, just a day after posting the above prayer yesterday, I read this on www.bcnn1.com, "Former television news anchor Laurie Dhue,...has opened up about her struggle with alcoholism."
Scriptures from the King James Bible:
1 Corinthians 16:15
...addicted themselves to the ministry...
Ah Lord God! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee:
But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.
He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.
...to proclaim liberty to the captives,...
The Lord shall reign for ever,...
...given thee living water.
...the fountain of living waters,...
The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.
The name of the Lord is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.
God is...a very present help in trouble.
O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
1 Timothy 6:12
Fight the good fight of faith,...
...heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
Be still, and know that I am God:...
I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
...I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.
And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.
