Pray for the United States of America

‘Pray the States!’

In Esther’s Warriors Ministry, we began in 2012 ‘praying the states’ for healing for our Nation.   Queen Esther went before the king to intercede for her people.    We go before the King to intercede for our Nation ‘for such a time as this’ (Esther 4:14).  We pray for each state in the order of admission to the Union and will continue.  Our Nation more than ever needs consistent, diligent prayer cover state by state.

The Hope of Advent

 

Hold Onto the Prince of Peace Evermore

I wish you a most blessed second week of Advent!  Last week’s theme was peace.  I pray you are successful in ‘being the peace’ in your world.  It is not always easy but with intention you can live in the peace Jesus died to give you.  Live with purpose seeking first the Kingdom of God and all will be added unto you.  Keep His peace in your heart (for it is always a heart issue) throughout the year and it will emanate to those around you.

What is Your Hope?

Short Takes…

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!’

Daily Inspiration-Storms in Life…

Storms in life, like any natural storm, ultimately pass and give way to sunny skies.  Do not quit.  Do not become fearful.

When storms do come (and they will), hold on to your faith.  He is right there with you.  Wait out the storm.  It will pass.  He’s got this!

For it is written:

“On the same day, when evening had come, He said to them, “Let us cross over to the other side.”  Now when they had left the multitude, they took Him along in the boat as He was. And other little boats were also with Him.  And

Daily Inspiration-Seek Ye First…

Set clear boundaries.  Some will try to cross them.  Some will seek to annihilate them.  Set them anyway.  Hold on to His truth!

Stay close to the Lord.  Pray a mighty hedge of protection around you and your family daily. Seek Him.  Seek His peace.  Seek His Kingdom.

For it is written:

  “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” 

Jesus

Advent Begins!

Walk Through Advent

With Peace, Hope, Joy and Love!

This week marks the beginning of the Advent season.  Derived from the Latin word adventus which means coming, the next weeks are spent in anticipation of commemoration of the birth of the Messiah.  As Christians we also wait for the second coming of Jesus Christ to earth.  As we await Christmas and His second coming we have an opportunity especially in this Advent season to ‘start again’ as His mercies are new every morning.

Daily Inspiration-How Is Your Connection?

People watching at restaurants is one of my favorite pastimes.  What I know is that no one eats alone.  Whether with others at the table or not, cell phones or computers are always present and in use.  I have seen entire meals spent on the phone while a person is sitting with someone.

WOW-when did we as a culture become so disrespectful of one another?  99.9% of what I hear (for some reason folks talk extra loud on their cells) is just chatter.  Turn off the electronics!  Really engage with those around you.

It is no wonder that so many

Daily Inspiration-A Cup of Christmas Tea…

One Christmas tradition I shared with my family was Christmas tea.  It was a special time to share tea and conversation.  When my Dad passed, my Mom and I carried on the tradition until she moved to another state.  I then looked forward to our telephone conversation as we shared our Christmas tea across the miles, until she joined my Dad.

Without her there, my Christmas gatherings with my cousins became all the more special to me as that was my family connection.  They were a large family so it would always fun to see them and catch up on

Daily Inspiration-Line It Up!

It is the most wonderful time of the year!  Have you noticed that people seem a little friendlier between Thanksgiving and Christmas?  There truly seems to be a “spirit of Christmas.”

This is also a time you can easily overdo.  With frayed nerves, you can live the next month stressed out and miss the real reason for Christmas.  Jesus is the greatest gift that you can give to anyone.  If you keep Him close in your heart and allow His heart of love and compassion to work through you, you will bring His peace to each situation you encounter.
