Having Done All............. FAST


.... I have prayed... I have rebuked...... I have bound the enemy from this situation and I have loosed the promises in to this situation... ...... I have resisted and I have stood in the gap.. ....... I have prayed the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man.. and wondered how effectual or fervent it has been.

......I have taken scriptures that applied to the situation and I have added the right name..... I have prayed those scriptures over and over and I have put those scriptures on 3x5 cards and carried them with me everywhere... I have prayed in the natural and I have prayed in the spirit... I have prayed during the day all day as I cleaned and I have laid in bed at night and prayed.......................... I have prayed that God close doors and open windows, only for the doors to be kicked open and the windows closed and the shutters drawn.


...... I have laid on the flood and sobbed until there were no more tears........ I have fought like a warrior with the sword of the word and my righteous indignation has risen to fever pitch. I have curled up in the lap of my Father as a child and just rested from my labor.


.......I have marched up and down in my home with my word of God in one hand and shaking my fist in the face of the enemy that keep pushing in to destroy... ....... I have been careful not to use vain repetition and I have studied to know that am praying within the boundaries of His will...


....... I have called my friends and I have requested prayer and in every church I have ever been in this request has been laid at the alter.. I have written this request on paper and placed it in my bible on pages where the answer lies....................... I have prayed and reminded God of His word.. I have petitioned Him to perform that which He has promised.........

......I have performed these things and prayed these prayers for over 15 years now.............( I am a persistent little gal) I will not give up and in fact I feel that the warrior in me is gaining strength and I know that the Father God will soon answer........

..... This is not about health, it is not about money.... it is about choices in life and about a person that I love more than life. It is about God's perfect will and not God's permitted will.......
...I wonder is there such a thing? I have been in the permissive will and it is not pretty.........

....It is about the camp of the enemy coming in to disrupt the last 15 years of petitions that have gone up to the Father..... It serious.... It is my responsibility to pray and pray effectually ...... It is ...........
........However............... after having done all and now with critical hour approaching I am being nudged by the Holy Spirit.......... He is whispering to me........................ FAST..........

I will fast............ and I will see God move......

I can so relate Denise. At times I feel like I'm all prayed and waited out. I have nothing left. I'm at the place right now. Fasted, prayed, cried, screamed, gave up, got back in the game, let go, took it back, let it go again and nothing! No change, nothing! So I have no words of Wisdom for you only perhaps it will help knowing you're not alone.

Well, actually, if the truth be told, I think I just plain gave up and accepted it for what it is. It is what it is and only can can change it if He wants to change it. I just have to accept it if it's all it is ever going to be where God is concerned too.

You are not alone.

yes, yessss, YES!!!!
God is so speaking this to me right now.i believe He is telling me that those who press in with this right now will see huge break throughs. I saw a goblet--full--being tipped from it base by the hand of God. The liquid is near the edge. Fasting will continue that tip. And then the out pouring of what we have been fasting for.Press in.
Maybe this is what the still period in your life if all about.
I am doing some fasting too.
There are soem huge things that have been hanging for too long. Time to bring em down. For His names sake.
Girl I wish you were around here. We could do some holy damage together.
