Dear Prayer Warriors,
For those of you who are not on certain Social Media sites, I publish “Short Takes” every day. Below are the takes for last week. Also are included links to short posts “From the Archives of Esther’s Warriors Ministry.” I pray they bless you and keep you striving toward a full Kingdom walk ‘for such a time as this!’
~Stand apart. Don’t follow the crowd. Follow the Kingdom path & speak His truth out loud!
~”But seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto… Read the rest
No matter how things look right now, do not give up hope. Any situation can change in an instant. That instant may be a shift or a complete “suddenly” turn-around.
If change begins as a shift, do not despise the small beginning. A shift starts the momentum. Look forward with faith and hope to keep that momentum going!
Through every change, look for the lesson. Learn as you go through life. Grow forward. Never stay stuck in former destructive patterns. Allow the Lord to make all things new for you in His perfect timing and in His perfect will.

Sometimes as you continue to journey with the Lord, He will reveal something to you about someone. First of all, test the spirit to make sure it is the Holy Spirit and not some divisive spirit just trying to stir things up. Never forget that the enemy roams around just looking for a way to trip you up and eliminate you from your Kingdom assignment!
Second, keep the information to yourself. Do not share it with anyone else to include the person about whom you may have had this revelation. Most often you are simply to pray for that person.… Read the rest
A young man told me not so long ago that he could be angry with God for his situation. However, he went on to say that he took full responsibility as his choices had clearly led him there.
It is so rare that I ever hear anyone take personal responsibility for anything these days. Blaming everyone else, to include God, is more the norm. Never looking at how their actions and choices may have led them to where they are is sadly more common place. It appears easier to attack everyone else’s character, life situation, etc. as the reason for… Read the rest
We are each fearfully and wonderfully made with a unique God given destiny. Do not judge another because their journey does not look like yours. It is not supposed to be the same.
Concentrate on what God has for you. Keep your heart clear (for it is always a heart issue). Let Him work through you in His own way and in His own timing. He knows you better than you think you know yourself. Therefore, His plan far exceeds all you could think or imagine!
For it is written:
“O LORD, You have searched me and known me. You… Read the rest
2017 is moving forward so quickly. This is a season of swift reversal of things that have long appeared stuck.
Think of the man who was blind from birth. Religious folk questioned whose sin had resulted in his condition. Was it his sin? Was it generational…a sin of his parents? Religious folk today still love to judge and determine in their minds how whatever sin they perceive in your life has created your situation.
Challenges can be brought on through the open door of sin for sure. But this is not always the case. If you have repentantly searched your… Read the rest

On this day we commemorate Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Take a moment to read about who Dr. King was and what he really stood for in his time that profoundly altered history. Many today would like to link the current black radical resistance movements to Dr. Kings’ work. He was for racial equality across economic and social lines, yes, but his platform was Christian and non-violent. “We must ever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence.”… Read the rest
