Plans go wrong for lack of advice; many advisers bring success. Everyone enjoys a fitting reply; it is wonderful to say the right thing at the right time! The path of life leads upward for the wise; they leave the grave behind. The LORD tears down the house of the proud, but he protects the property of widows. The LORD detests evil plans, but he delights in pure words. Greed brings grief to the whole family, but those who hate bribes will live. The heart of the godly thinks carefully before speaking; the mouth of the wicked overflows with evil words. The LORD is far from the wicked, but he hears the prayers of the righteous. (Proverbs 15:22-29 NLT) We can make our own plans, but the LORD gives the right answer. People may be pure in their own eyes, but the LORD examines their motives. Commit your actions to the LORD, and your plans will succeed. The LORD has made everything for his own purposes, even the wicked for a day of disaster. The LORD detests the proud; they will surely be punished. Unfailing love and faithfulness make atonement for sin. By fearing the LORD, people avoid evil. (Proverbs 16:1-6 NLT) The path of the virtuous leads away from evil; whoever follows that path is safe. Pride goes before destruction, and haughtiness before a fall. Better to live humbly with the poor than to share plunder with the proud. Those who listen to instruction will prosper; those who trust the LORD will be joyful. The wise are known for their understanding, and pleasant words are persuasive. There is a path before each person that seems right, but it ends in death. (Proverbs 16:17-21, 25 NLT) Hot-tempered people must pay the penalty. If you rescue them once, you will have to do it again. Get all the advice and instruction you can, so you will be wise the rest of your life. You can make many plans, but the LORD's purpose will prevail. (Proverbs 19:19-21 NLT) Please pray for my boyfriend!!! For God to help him realize he needs to stop living in the wild worldly lifestyle. He needs to see that the godly lifestyle is what's right and what he truly wants and needs. He is starting to go down a path with another girl who is worldly, and leading him towards destruction, when this really seems like the right path to him. He thinks we are broken up now, but the great I AM has the power to change his mind and work in him. Everyone who struggles with this, listen to Lecrae's song called Killa. This song describes how my boyfriend struggles. I love him unconditionally. The way Jesus loves me. and pray for him every single day. I just want him to turn back to me knowing this is the right path. Pray persistently for him to be delivered of sex opposition and have the strength to resist that evil and not give in to it, and to do the right thing. and that he will be delivered of his unforgiving resentment. He needs to not hold things against people, but see past the bad moments so he can see the good that there is. Pray that me, his parents, and his christian friends will speak the correct words into him for him to not resist us, but turn back to us knowing the truth and correct way! He needs the protection and armor of God to not give in to the worldly girls who speak evil influence into him daily. I might be stronger of a Christian than him, but he's no worse of a sinner than me. All sin is sin in God's eyes. My boyfriend needs to realize that and not see himself and worse than me. Satan is attacking him a lot and it is hard for him to withstand Satan, but there is power in prayer!! It is not easy to do the right thing, but I believe God is with him and will help him!! I will never give up on my boyfriend I believe in the power of Jesus!! Please lift this up to the lord with me everyone!!! In the name of Jesus he will be delivered!

Lil Man and I continue to remain without a place to call home. As each day passes by, I find myself becoming more and depressed. Initially, I believed that I had found a temporary place for at least 45 days only for it to fall thru. it was a lease takeover whereby I was denied. On Monday, 1/26, I began working my new job. Initially, I didn't believe I would make it my first day for I literally have no money. Due to having no funds, my car and renters insurance have lapsed. As a result, I will be fined by the state for the lapse of insurance. There is no money for food, gas, a much needed oil change (and other car maintenance), or any basic necessities. Friends, family, acquaintances, and the like, won't help. I continue to pray and pray; but, I am still sinking further into a deep financial hole. It causes me to pause wondering if this will ultimately affect my new job. The extreme stress is taking its toll. I have been ill since Saturday. Will Lil Man and I ever have a home again? Please continue to hold us in thought and prayer. May God continue to bless. -Deb and Lil Man

My boyfriend Eduardo is in DEEP need of deliverance from the strongholds of sex and unforgiving resentment that he has!!! Please pray for him persistently lifting him up to God!!! I know God can work in his life for this and I believe God will!! My heart cries out for him because I love him and don't want to see him in this wrong lifestyle path! Eduardo has had this problem basically his whole life. He has told me about the time he became saved, but most times it's really hard to believe that his life was changed by the Holy Spirit because of his actions and lifestyle. He is happy in it! :( I am a Christian woman and we have been dating for two years. I've seen how God has worked in our relationship these 2 years, he has always stepped in and made the way for Eduardo and I when there was no way possible. I know God wants this relationship to be together. But there is a bad girl that came into his life who is tempting him and pulling him away- that is from satan! 1 Peter 5:8-9. Galatians 5:16-17. He slowly keeps pulling away from me. He said he prayed about it and said that this girl is what he needs and he feels I am not the right girl for him. But that can not be truth imparted to him from God! Because God will never encourage us to live a sinful lifestyle, and that's what this girl is offering and seducing him with. I don't want him to go down an evil worldly path. (Like he had before he met me, and like he is pushing hard for with this other girl now!) I have always given him unconditional love. I always will. That girl Latecia might give him sex that makes him happy for the moment, but this girl will always love him truly and in every way possible. I know that he heard a word from God. His mom told me that God spoke to Eduardo and told him that he was in danger. Eduardo might think I am the problem/danger because we have had maybe 2 or 3 problems in our whole relationship. But what couple won't have a few problems? One of the problems was that I got him into a car wreck last summer and he said he can't forgive that and see past it. He notices all the bad things and doesn't see or remember hardly any of our good. He says we always have problems, when in all realness- we have only had a couple of problems, but it stays bad because Eduardo has resentment and struggles deeply with sexual opposition when those temptations come up. Out of our two years there have been many girls that start to cause problems to pull him away, but God always brings him back to me. This time it seems the other girl is winning. But the Bible tells us that Satan will not win in the end! He will always be conquered by the Lord. Whatever God wants, will be. The Devil will never encourage us to do something great for God- that is how people can discern if something is from God or Satan. Eduardo needs to not harden his heart to what God has said, and not turn from what's right. The danger is him going into the worldly lifestyle- that God keeps trying to speak to him about. When we were eating lunch at a mall in Albacete Spain he said he always thinks about how I am such a "good girl" and he is a "bad boy", and often often thinks it won't work because of that. He has said part of the time he wants to be my love, and part of the time he wants to be free. (To live that worldly lifestyle:(. ) One day when I was praying about Eduardo, God showed me all the perfect verses about living in the world. 1 Peter 2:11-12; 2 Peter 2:4-10; 2 Peter 2:13-22; Titus 2:11-14. He's grieving the holy spirt. And that's a scary dangerous thing to ignore God when he speaks. Pray that Eduardo will change his lifestyle to the godly one and not worldly one that is easy to get sucked into. Pray that he will see that this is the right path, and stay with me. The walk with God isn't promised to be easy, but it is what's right and it's what's best. I wish he could see that true happiness isn't found in the worldly lifestyle of sex and just about having fun. Real happiness is found in the godly lifestyle that he needs, that I offer to him as his christian girlfriend who really loves him with everything I am. I know God can turn this around. I believe God will, and that God will show him I'm truly the best godly woman for him. We have not talked in about a week, because his mom suggested that I not talk to him, give him time to calm down and let God work. I'm praying hard every day. But the bad thing is this girl talks to him every day too, while I'm not talking to him. His parents are both Christians, wonderful people. His dad is a pastor. His parents have no idea how deeply he struggles with this sex stronghold. They would love for Eduardo to be my spouse one day. (Eduardo and I were/are planning to get married in summer 2016.) They are praying for him and I every day. Pray his parents will say the right things to him every day. (To speak encouragement of me to him and truth to him about the godly lifestyle.) And pray especially that God will keep speaking the right things to him. Be praying for our conversation that is to come in the future sometime. I don't know who will start it, if I will or if he will. And I want it to be nice, good conversation. Right now I think I will continue to remain quiet to let God work. But Eduardo has a hard heart and doesn't seem to be changing, this is gonna be really hard for him to do. I remember him saying, when I want something no one can stop me. God did design us to have free will, but I pray that God's presence will be so present at all moments on him that he doesn't choose that wrong bad path. Pray that he will turn back to me, I honestly will love and care for him all my life.- really, all my life. I love him second next to God and would do anything in the world for him. It's not like I won't have sex with him, I just won't until we are married next summer. Because I love and honor God above him. I know that anything that's in the hands of God can't be snatched. But I'm asking for prayer to be lifted up right now so God will be working in him for our relationship to get better sooner rather than later. Pray that he will not hold resentment over past mistakes and be able to be more faithful, not turning to worldly sex desires when the opposition comes up. Share this with your friends and family please!! I truly thank you all so much.

Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be still wiser, Teach a righteous man, and he will increase his learning. The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. For by me your days will be multiplied, And years of life will be added to you. If you are wise, you are wise for yourself, And if you scoff, you alone will bear it (PROVERBS 9:9-12). O my Lord, my most gracious and most merciful Lord - Your Name Is Power (I will choose to listen and believe, I will choose to listen and believe the voice of truth, I will listen and believe, I will listen and believe the voice of truth, I will listen and believe, Because Jesus you are the voice of truth and I will listen to you - an excerpt from "Voice of Truth", sung by the 'Casting Crowns). I ask for prayer unto God (through Jesus) on my behalf for an unsought, but revealed and faithful rewarded gift, that I would exist and be; by HIM (through HIS Son), blessed into a life of increased boundary(ies) gifted from above without guile; 'as HE, HIS Son, and the Holy Spirit Would be with me', and that HE keeps no evil presence about me and that no laments should touch me for the GLORY OF GOD that the Glory of God may exist as HE desires and commands as HE has imparted such a magnificent "liberty wisdom and ability" now to this humble servant to be not for this servant's gain or glory but for the absolute Glory of God in HIS Son. In Jesus name I pray this. Help me LORD to be all that YOU have in YOUR Design and Grace allowed me to advance in YOUR Graced Time to become. In the name of Jesus; the High Priest of Melchizedek - forever and ever, Amen. O God Almighty I have at all times worshiped YOU always at all times within awareness and reverence of YOUR On High Presence in and by and through Jesus; Your name is awesomely glorious power and Your wisdom is wonderfully majestic counsel and Your love is beyond infinite greatness, YOUR Only Begotten Son (in Whom YOU Are well pleased). I'm finding myself at a loss for words and the fearful thing is that it's okay because I know in my heart, mind, and soul that the Blessed Jesus; 'as Your name is truly imprescriptible power - Your wisdom is beyond majestic counsel - Your love is beyond infinite greatness', is my absolute foundation in faithful belief, knowledge, understanding (whereby wisdom arises) of the Truths of God Within the Word. Please, Forgive me; 'YOUR Humble, Obedient, Faithful, and Trusting servant', God - for these praised words offered up in prayer by me are but dust, dirt and chaff in the wind (if even that in YOUR Holy Ears and or Eyes - save my personally accepted and faithful Savior; YOUR Son: Jesus - the Lamb of God) when compared to the True Holiness of Your Everlasting and Unfailing Glory, (but, it is all that I have to give in Praise, Honor, Power, Strength, Reverence, Glory, and Dominion of to YOUR Holiness of all that I know of YOU to be that is absolutely beyond my sinfully conceived concept of YOU) - in the name of Jesus; the High Priest of Melchizedek - forever and ever, I pray to YOU Father; the Creator of the Heavens and of the earth, Holy, Holy, Holy is YOUR name, Amen. I am near speechless for that which has been, in faith, revealed to me from/in/through/by diligent faithfulness to YOUR Imparted Divine Word. I am truly humbled, honored and rejoicing in immense joy with all that this clay is (having been created by the Creator and everything that has been thereof formed/crafted/made of the clay) by this clay's Master; Jesus - the Christ, Who; I witness as living, undeniably and truly is "Emmanuel" and my only Savior (in Whom my hope faithfully resides, forever) to be called forth into working YOUR Glorious Will here on earth as it is in the Heavens through YOUR Son as I am now become, by grace having been tried in multitudes of trials and scourges, recipient to the awesome and astounding wonders of YOUR Love. God, I Thank You beyond anything I can give in worthy praise in utterance from within, or, of my essence for that which has been revealed to me through YOUR Work in, by, and for YOUR Glory. Jesus, Your name is undoubted power and I have wielded the Sword of the Spirit with prudence and will assuredly continue forth with even more-so the utmost extreme prudence henceforth for this great blessing imparted to child of God. Blessed be "every act of giving good and every perfect gift is [known to originate] from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom is no change or shadow of turning. Having purposed, He brought us forth by the word of truth, for us to be a certain firstfruit of His creatures." In the LORD, In the Son, and By the HOLY SPIRIT I am so astounded that what is now revealed to this faithful servant of the LORD God Almighty (through HIS Son and Holy Spirit) is Absolute Amazing Grace for YOUR Glory and He in WHOM YOU dwell. In the name of Jesus - Holy, Holy, Holy is YOUR name, YOU Are Everything and All Things Seen and Unseen! Hosanna to the Highest! Hallelujah!, Hallelujah!, Hallelujah!, Amen.
