Fruitful Prayer Trainings

Begin every morning in the presence of the Lord, preaching to yourself. Breath of heaven, breathe on me!

God has been speaking to me in the deeps about stewarding our own responses in all seasons. Our delight in him. And in our responsibility to love and submit to his disciplines. Self governance, trainings, exercises to practice for fruit bearing. Yielding all control to his Holy Spirit morning by morning. Growing as we go.

Through our patience we “Subdue and take dominion”

Subdue our own thought life. Subdue our fears. Subdue our emotions. Giving God our full attention.

Seek his heart first. Let him dress you up in your daily faith garments. Look up to where your help comes from. Wait patiently. Linger and listen so that you might meekly receive the thoughts of the mind of Christ. His word is alive! Daily we learn to live intentionally with continuity. We learn how and where to walk when we listen well.

Radical Root Cause Healings

I love those who love me, and those who seek me diligently will find me. – Proverbs 8:17

This word is all about being lost and then being found. About wonders that are laid up for us for radical faith…or the faith of radicals…

Radical Definition
Arising from or going to a root or source; basic.

Departing markedly from the usual or customary; extreme or drastic.

A person or a move which advocates fundamental or revolutionary changes in current practices, conditions, or institutions.


Are you a disciple of Christ who desires new depths and wonders? I am, I don’t want to wade around in the shallows. I want an “all the way to the root” cleansing that will take me into spiritual purity. Only then can I reach the unreached and love the unlovely.

I’ve learned that before we can be used by God we need deliverance from our old carnal nature. Our soul needs to be sanctified. Within the soul are the root causes of our thought and action. Who we are to the core.  Anf we’re ruled by what’s been imprinted on the soul. We need an extreme makeover.

Over years of wrong lifestyle influences roots have been embedded in the heart. Emotional trauma has set response patterns in place. Our lives had no stable foundation, we were powerless against the negatives of the life we were born into. Learned behavior patterns, things such as excessive fear, disrespect for authority, traumatic contentions and anger that causes patterns of divisiveness, had become a normal way of life for many. We were drowning in a sea of hopelessness. We thought life was just that way and we had no recourse but to make the best of it.

Then we were found by God’s amaizng grace and we began to adapt to a new work within. His radical soul renewal processes. He set out to clean up our life garden He set out to restore our soul. H set out to uproot weeds and heal soul wounds.

Little by little we began to discover the thrill of his joyous good pleasure and over time learning to yield ourselves fully to his processes. The weeds were deeper than we had imagined, yet we yield, because his Fathering love compels us.  He wants to do a total purifying work in us.

He has a perfect plan. We’re called to be rooted and grounded in his word. It’s very far beyond any human ability. All of the efforts of man are vain.

Isaiah 58:12

And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.

Will we become willing, yielded vessels to be renwed and filled? The ongoing process will be beyond our understanding. By placing our whole heart of trust on Christ within our imperfections can be stripped away by his blood covered work in process. The mind is washed and renewed so that the mind of Christ guides us.

In righteousness we hunger and thirst for Christ’s kingdom word.

This one thing I have desired of the Lord, that I may dwell with him in his house forever.

His word upholds the righteous.

All who will conform willingly to the will of God can be changed and empowered by grace. I’m glad to know that where Jesus has begun a work of deliverance, he will not fail nor be discouraged until he has finished it. And neither should we. Don’t draw back. Keep your peace and keep the faith.  Let the river of his love flow deep within.  Wait patiently as his perfect love carries us all the way through his processes.

Our goal is maturity, the total freedom of Christlikeness.

Thank you, Father God, for the indescribable gift of your Son!
