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....

Greetings -

Below I have re-posted the posted topic "WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE IN THESE PRAYERS?" that was originally posted on this blog on Sunday October 3, 2010.  This particular post is to share what the Lord has revealed to me and some others, I am sure.

I heard or read somewhere that a useful way to engage in constructive effective communications is to "parrot" what other people say.  For instance, David may say, "I will meet you for lunch tomorrow in front of Chester's at 1 p.m."

Lisa answers, "We will meet at 1 p.m. for lunch tomorrow in front of Chester's?"

David replies, "Yes."

Lisa "parroted" to David what he had stated to her.  There was clear communication there.  Another factor is that people like to hear their words (exceptions being when they are involved in misdeeds...)

Awhile ago, the Lord shared with me that He likes to hear, from the righteous, His Words "parroted" - repeated back to Him.  That set me to regularly praying and speaking His Words to Him as memorized from His Holy Bible - I use the King James Bible.

First prayer example:

"Lord You said in Your Word that You will never fail us or forsake us.  I thank You that from everlasting to everlasting You are GOD.  I know that You are greater than all gods.  You are the God of gods and the Lord of lords.  You are greater than all, and I thank You.  Your Word says rejoice evermore.  I rejoice in Your highness, Father, and praise Your holy name.  Lord, You promised that if we walk uprightly before You that You shall supply all of our needs according to Your riches in glory by Christ Jesus.  Your Word says - Let GOD be magnified.  You are my glory and the lifter up of my head.  Thank You that you hear and will attend unto my prayers.  I need You to strengthen us please, Lord, and to help us to keep our minds stayed on You for the perfect peace that You provide.  Help us to love, Lord, and to minister to hungry souls.  Help our burning lights to go and glow to draw people out of darkness and into Your marvelous light.  Let us minister to You that You can minister to us.  Let us press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of GOD in Christ Jesus.

Thank you, Lord - Amen."

Nearly all of the words from that prayer came from the King James Bible.  GOD loves to hear His Word spoken from those with pure hearts and clean hands.

In Matthew 4, JESUS did not say things to Satan like, "Leave me alone, Satan," or "Get off my back, Satan," or "I'm sick of you, Satan."  He quoted scriptures to the Devil as shown below:

Matthew 4:4
...It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.  That scripture came from the Old Testament in Deuteronomy 8:3.

Matthew 4:7
Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.  That scripture came from the Old Testament in Deuteronomy 6:16.

Matthew 4:10
...Jesus saith unto him, Get thee hence Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

Yes, Satan quoted scripture to JESUS.  The difference is that JESUS had the force and power of Almighty GOD on his side because JESUS is the Son of GOD, and because He quoted scriptures from a place of righteousness.  When we quote scriptures from our places of righteousness, we also have the force and power of Almighty GOD on our side.  The Word of GOD states that none can withstand him and none can stay His hand (Daniel 4:35).  That cannot be said, in truth, about the Devil.

Yes, the Devil can quote scriptures and he knows scriptures, but he does not obey scriptures - thus he cannot conquer the righteous and holy.

Second prayer example: (I don't consider this a strong, for the most part, effective prayer - though if a babe in Christ prays in similar fashion, it is understandable due to lack of spiritual maturity.) 

Father, thank You for waking us up this morning to see another day.  Thank You, Lord, for our children and for our families.  Thank You for the food we eat.  Thank You for our jobs and for giving us transportation.  Thank You for our pastor and his lovely wife and family.

Lord bless us this day.  Bless our children and our families.  Bless us, please, in our jobs.  Give us all that we need.  Please heal our bodies and give us strength to make it through each day.  Save our loved ones, Lord, and protect us from danger.  Provide for our church building fund, and defend us against our enemies.

Thank You, Lord - Amen.

Third prayer example: (This prayer is full of scriptural content and thus potent, powerful and definitely effective, provided the pray-ers have pure hearts and clean hands)

Father, in the name of JESUS, you are GOD who rules in the kingdom of men.  The earth is Yours, Lord, and You rule over all.  We love You, Lord, because You first loved us.  Thank You that You are forever the great I AM.  We thank You this morning, Father, that we are Your heirs and joint heirs with Your beloved Son JESUS Christ.  We appreciate that we are covenant people - bless Your holy name.  We are not our own.  We have been bought with a price - the precious blood of JESUS Christ.  Thank You, Lord, that You are the GOD of all flesh.

Father, please lead us in the way everlasting.  Teach us Your ways.  We thank You, Lord, that You are sovereign and do whatsoever You please.  Help us to steadfastly hunger and thirst after righteousness and to have souls that follow hard after You.  Teach us to love, Lord, in ways that bring You joy, pleasure and delight.  We purpose to fight the good fight of faith and to keep on Your full armor to quench all the fiery darts of the Devil.  Help us, please, Lord, to be holy as You are holy.

Thank You, Lord - Amen.

Important note:
It is vitally important also, in our prayer times, to listen to what GOD says to us.  Listening to GOD is of major importance as is DOING what He instructs through His Word, His people and whatever other means He elects.

It is re-posted on blog, "FREELY RECEIVED FREELY GIVEN" at Specifically, it is located under the separate TAB titled, “PRAYING GOD’S WORDS.” Also, on that blog, in the MAIN section, at the top of the HOME page, are listed "Conditions" for such usage.




Recently during his live streamed Sunday service, T.D Jakes made a statement, “The glory is on the floor.” It was an anointed message.

People in the congregation, men and women, were on the floor at the front of the church. Some were on their knees - while others were prostrate on their faces. At one point, Jakes was prostrate on the floor.

Anointed singers were singing, “The glory is on the floor.” The presence of the Lord was major in flow. Hallelujah.

After I watched Jakes’ service - to the floor I went – and it ministered….!

The Lord gave me the following scriptures:

This scripture is about what JESUS did: Matthew 26:39 And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed,…

Ezekiel 1:28
…This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord. And when I saw it, I fell upon my face, and I heard a voice of one that spake.

Ezekiel 3:23
…the glory of the Lord stood there, as the glory which I saw by the river of Chebar: and I fell on my face.

Ezekiel 4:44
…behold, the glory of the Lord filled the house of the Lord: and I fell upon my face.

Luke 5:12
…who seeing Jesus fell on his face,…

Luke 17:15
…and with a loud voice glorified God.

Luke 17:16
And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan.

Daniel 6:10
…he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime.

Psalm 55:17
Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice.

Psalm 119:164
Seven times a day do I praise thee because of thy righteous judgments.

Numbers 12:5
And the Lord came down in the pillar of the cloud, and stood in the door of the tabernacle, and called…and they…came forth.

    This was really good. Thanks for demonstrating a subtle difference in our prayers that really changes the perspective! It's interesting, Sandra - tomorrow I am posting a "dialogue" with God - something that I wrote several days ago. It was a suggestion I heard at a recent event - taking a passage of Scripture, and then responding to it, verse by verse. I appreciate the simplicity and truth of your idea - using God's Word to pray ("parrot") back to Him. After all, it is our best weapon against all of the devil's tools! Thanks...and GOD BLESS YOU!

    P.S. The picture at the beginning of this post is taken in Antelope Canyon - a beautiful canyon in Utah - my husband and I visited there - it was really spectacular!

    What an excellent prayer suggestion! I will use this "parrot" method more often! Thanks for sharing your insights!!!!

    A fellow intercessor at Christian Healing Ministries also heard from the Lord "Pray My Word, child, it brings healing in all areas. Trust Me and pray My Word." Joy Lamb wrote the book, "The Sword of the Spirit: The Word of God". Despite poor advertising and distribution, it has gone international in numerous languages. The cheapest source for them is the home ministry:
    I go to her husband's business to buy mine.

    It is the operating book for numerous prayer groups internationally. There are over 200 prayer groups using this that are on the ministry's prayer chain.

    You're talking about God's Logos. I see amazing healings by using God's Rhema (His Spoken Word). Through Word of Knowledge (which I prayed for over 30 years ago), He has directed me how to pray.

    When I pray for someone, the first thing I pray for is, "God, please teach me what to pray that I may pray according to your Will and watch things happen." I may hear the Lord tell me what to pray. He may tell me to close my eyes and look at the client. He then uses prophetic vision. I may be led to open my mouth and let fly in what I call "tongues -- in English." I often take notes afterwards as to what came out of my mouth. Sometimes it is outlandish, but it always accomplishes His Will.

    I have been re-reading "Praise, Faith in Action" by Charles Trombley. It gets into the actual words for "praise" that are simply translated into praise in English. I need to write a piece on that soon because the original language (Aramaic, Greek, Hebrew) all have much more detailed descriptions of what that word praise means. It would totally revolutionize "praise" in most churches today.... soon!

    Thank you, Marijo - please notify when you do the subject piece. I am interested in the content, indeed.

    Since I posted this, I have been on the floor prostrate every morning before our Lord.
    I have been in said posture with worship music playing, praying in English and in tongues, and worshipping and praising the Lord.

    I have done this for 9 days straight. Prostrate praying has been a posture for me previously but this season is the first time that I have done it every morning for straight days. Most definitely it has made a sure difference in my relationship with the Lord!

    The difference in so few days has surprised me.
    I feel closer to Him. And this morning, I said joyfully to our Lord as I lay on the floor, "This is where I belong." I felt a strong sense of His approval.

    Of course, prostrate praying or any other praying posture is of none effect if we are as Joshua as stated in Joshua 7:6,10, 11:

    "And Joshua rent his clothes, and fell to the earth upon his face before the ark of the Lord until the eventide,.."

    "And the Lord said unto Joshua, Get thee up; wherefore liest thou thus upon thy face?"

    "Israel hath sinned,..."

    Well, the Lord has not told me to "Get thee up."
    Whew! My prayer is that He will never need to - but if so, repent I will do...we have an Advocate with the Father....

    Now I am not saying that the Lord leads all of His children in such ways as we are all unique.
    My testimony is what it has done for me and the noticeable difference in my communion with our Lord.

    Some lightness: I am not walking on water but maybe one day...

    Prayer: Father please help us to uniquely reach our highest levels in You for Your awesome glory. Thank you, Lord - Amen

    The first prayer is vague, and on the surface. The second prayer is deep, and goes to the heart of our relationship with our Lord, and Savior...

    Hi Julie -

    Thank you for commenting.

    Yes, I agree...

    I don't believe God cares if we use eloquent words, as long as we are talking to Him. God looks at the heart.

    October 3, 2010 2:58 PM

    Tim Temple said...

    The first prayer is for somewhat immature Christians. It is about I, Me and Mine. Babies are ego-centric like that. That's okay -- for babies.

    The second prayer shows the impact of God's love and power. This prayer aims the grace of God at our own hearts. There is hope in heaven as a perspective. It also aims at God's priority of love.

    October 3, 2010 3:13 PM

    Julie Reynolds said...
    Well said Tim. I'm not quite so eloquent with my words as that, but I do try to focus on the second type of prayer. I do at times pray for the surface stuff, but I am much more specific as to what I'm asking for, and I pray for specific things, and people. I pour out my heart like he were sitting next to me.

    October 3, 2010 4:26 PM

    Tim R. Temple said...

    Julie, pouring your heart out to God is what I do as well. I will go out to a retreat to sing, cry and pray.

    I can identify deeply with the old song, "In the Garden." Here's a copy:

    Greetings -

    @Timothy - Thank you for posting that link to youtube, "In the Garden." It so blessed and ministered to me. I remember that song as a evokes memories of my precious GOD loving mother. Just weeks ago, I was talking to a relative about that song and informed her that I could not recall much of the lyrics. She recited them...I was impressed at her memory of the words...she blessed me with the recitation...and then you post yesterday a link to the subject song.


    Timothy I appreciate your sensitivity to our Lord's will....

    Thank you Tim for that video of "In The Garden" I went to bed last night with parts of the lyrics going through my head. Beautiful song that touched my heart.

  4. Praying GOD'S Word to Him, the "parroting" method is a highly effective way to pray, provided it is done with pure hearts and clean hands. That manner of prayer is immensely potent and deeply powerful! GOD'S words do NOT return void so says Isaiah 55:11.

    GOD delights in the prayers of the righteous.

    Proverbs 15:8 - KJV
    The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination unto the Lord: but the prayer of the upright is his delight.

    James 5:16 - KJV
    ...The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

  5. PRAYING GOD'S WORD comment...

    Briefly...for me... EXCELLENT SANDRA! This truly was beneficial and great example of the difference! Since the late 80s, I have seen the benefits in praying scripture. I plan on putting this to action for 40 days starting next Weds. daily but not on my regular blog (maybe on my prayer blog) but that is why this page stood out to me today and your spiritual warfare!

    Jesus gave us this example especially with satan. Thank you for your sound principle sharing and God's Word! Outstanding!

    Peace,love and JOY as I seek Him in His Word and prayer,

  6. Hi Peggy -

    Thank you for visiting and commenting.

    Glad it was beneficial to you. Yes, praying scripture is very effective...

    The more we follow the example of JESUS, the better we become....
