A Spirit-Led Life!

Satan can open doors too! BUT, it’s meant to be a trap. Be sure you’re in tune with the HOLY SPIRIT to know the difference between a “Open door” and a “Trap door”. 🚷~ M. Ford

“I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name.” (Revelation 3:8)

Shine…Shine! Let it Shine!

When life’s circumstances cause your world to grow dark–it’s then that the Child of God must let their LIGHTS shine even more the brighter. ~M. Ford

“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” (Matthew 5:14, 16)



So you say you are a Christian? If you were put on trial for this profession, would there be enough real and circumstantial evidence taken from the chronicles of your life to convict you? What would your verdict be–guilty or not guilty?

“Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God abides in us, and His love has been perfected in us.” (I John 4:11-12)

“New Mercies I See”

Heavenly Father, I lift up my eyes to the hills from where our help comes from! For all our help comes from You, Oh Lord, who made the heaven and earth. As we start a brand new week filled with brand new mercies we give you, oh Lord, brand new praises! Father, you’ve promised not to let our feet slip as we walk life’s slippery road—dealing with everything under the sun from health to wealth! Your never slumbering eyes Always watching—never can we escape your Holy vision for you watch over us day and night! Father, with your right hand you so gently and patiently protect and shield us from seen and unseen danger! Nothing can harm us by day or by night as we go to and fro…going in and out…because we are under Your protective hand! Lord, You are our Keeper—our Protector—The Lion of Judah! Therefore, we will bless Your Name now and forevermore! In the precious name of Jesus I pray…Amen! (Psalm 121)🙏🏽❤️


Father God, I come standing on your Word in 2 Chronicles 7:14, humbly seeking your face in fervent prayer on this day! Father, forgive us of our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness, so that as we prostrate our spirits in prayer on behalf of our children, schools, marriages, communities, government, nation and world…You, oh Lord, will move in miraculous ways! Father, move on our behalf like a mighty rushing wind for our health/healing, financial release, mental/emotional well-being, freedom from depression, oppression, suppression, obsession and possession! Father, we look to YOU and YOU ALONE to break loose the shackles that bind your children physically, mentally, emotionally, financially and spiritually! Lord, You are a mighty God, our strength and song, high tower and strong deliverer! Holy Spirit break us loose from complacency and set the captives FREE! Set our hearts and souls on fire for You, Oh Lord, and give us a thirst that only You can quench! Hear our cry, oh Lord, and heal our Land! Hallelujah and Amen! 🙏🏽


Heavenly Father, I come praying Your protection, direction and covering over your children today…those who are called by your name. Touch those who are hurting, sick, disenfranchised, lonely and lost with your finger of healing, restoration, renewal and love in Jesus’ name. Father, bless us with an extra measure of your grace and mercy as we continue to seek your will for our lives. Lord, we desire to do greater works in your name! Help us be the light and salt in this dark and unsavory world! Purge, renew and strengthen us each day and empower us to live Holy. Help us to walk boldly in the calling you have upon our lives, for you have called us out of the darkness of the world into the marvelous light of eternity! It’s in Jesus’ mighty matchless name I put my trust and have hope! Amen🙏🏽
