Protection (Psalm 91) (Wednesday, October 3, 2007)

I encourage you to take Psalm 91 and to read it aloud everyday and ask the Lord to protect you and your family and friends.  

Psalm 91 (Amplified Bible)

Amplified Bible (AMP) Copyright © 1954, 1958, 1962, 1964, 1965, 1987 by The Lockman Foundation

Psalm 91

1HE WHO [a]dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand].    2I will say of the Lord, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I [confidently] trust!

3For [then] He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence.

4[Then] He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings shall you trust and find refuge; His truth and His faithfulness are a shield and a buckler.

5You shall not be afraid of the terror of the night, nor of the arrow (the evil plots and slanders of the wicked) that flies by day,

6Nor of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor of the destruction and sudden death that surprise and lay waste at noonday.

7A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand, but it shall not come near you.

8Only a spectator shall you be [yourself inaccessible in the secret place of the Most High] as you witness the reward of the wicked.

9Because you have made the Lord your refuge, and the Most High your dwelling place,(A)

10There shall no evil befall you, nor any plague or calamity come near your tent.

11For He will give His angels [especial] charge over you to accompany and defend and preserve you in all your ways [of obedience and service].

12They shall bear you up on their hands, lest you dash your foot against a stone.(B)

13You shall tread upon the lion and adder; the young lion and the serpent shall you trample underfoot.(C)

14Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness–trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

15He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.

16With long life will I satisfy him and show him My salvation.

The devil goes to Hospitals! by Elaine Davenport (Tuesday, October 2, 2007)

The devil goes to Hospitals!   Plead the Blood of Jesus!

Ephesians 6:12 (King James Version)

King James Version (KJV) Public Domain

12For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

*This is a true story; I lived it out. The devil tried to kill my friend. He tried to destroy my faith which is the essence of me. He starts fires all over the place. In the realm of the natural, prayer warriors backed by God put them out.

* Prayer Warriors work the front lines. We see everything that goes on. We encounter danger regularly. There are new adventures and repeated adventures. It’s exciting! God ALWAYS shows up! Always…

It was a Saturday afternoon and I was just sort of being lazy. The telephone rang and I didn’t even want to answer it. It was my good friends friend with bad news. My friend was very very sick in the hospital. She’s a minister. I knew it was warfare. The old me would have said I’ll pray. Satan began to send thoughts saying: “It’s a bad time.” When I opened my mouth, I said: “I’m on my way.”

I went to the Hospital to Plead The Blood of Jesus for my Friend!

I was mission minded on the way down there. My gas tank “looked” like it was on empty but the gas gauge lever never moved. My spiritual tank was on full. I found a free spot in front of the hospital. I got inside to her room and I found it quite easily. My friend looked very bad. I was led to seal the scene with the Blood of Jesus. I did it. There were only three of us there. We prayed a powerful prayer. When we finished; the nurse approached us within ten minutes. There had been a change…

THINGS HAD GOTTEN WORSE…

Now I’ll be honest. This had never happened before. Satan began to send thoughts:

“You are so stupid!”

“You really messed up now!”

“That faith stuff doesn’t work!”

“She’s going to die!”

“Her husband is going to ban you from seeing her.”

“They’re going to say you killed her.”

“They are definitely going to call you a nut!”

EVERYTHING SATAN SAYS IS A LIE! HE’S THE AUTHOR OF LIES! WHY WOULD ANYONE BELIEVE HIM? I DIDN’T. THE MORE HE SAID; THE STRONGER I GOT! THIS WAS WARFARE!

THEN I HEARD A QUIET VOICE..

Only Believe.

IT WAS HARD..

It was hard for me to hear the nurse say that now my friend was not only in a coma, but that she had a heart attack and was experiencing kidney failure.

SIDE JOURNEY..

There’s a peace that comes over me as a Prayer Warrior. I get really quiet when something “bad” happens and the enemy attacks. A lot of faith people think if they get close to God nothing bad will happen to them. That’s not true. Something will happen, but God will make a way out.

“There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.”—1 Corinthians 10:13.

The word temptation describes tests and trials that occur in our lives. This was a test and it was a trial.

I had planned to go pray over my friend and go home. Now, I was going to have to get before God and find out specifically what to do next.

I WENT HOME TO PRAY

When I got home, I immediately went into a private place to pray. I was led to get out my Scripture Keys Book by June Newman Davis and to pray Healing Scriptures around the clock for my friend until she was healed. I began to do it and I was very faithful with it. I was unable to see my friend because they allowed only her husband to see her. I continued to leave him messages telling him that I was reading Healing Scriptures for her. I also called and told her friend that as well. Honestly, I don’t know if they even realized how much prayer was being sent, but it didn’t matter. I went to see her one day and she looked so bad that my daughter and I were moved to tears.
SHE CAME OUT OF THE COMA AND HER KIDNEYS BEGAN TO FUNCTION…

In what can only be described as a miracle, everything changed! She came out of the coma and everything began to function normally. She faced months of rehabilitation. I received a message from her after she got out of the hospital that basically said, don’t come around for a while. It was okay, my job is that of a prayer warrior and not that of a people pleaser. I continued to pray for my friend. I’m a busy person, I am called in all directions, so to be released from visiting anyone doesn’t put a ripple in my schedule. Jesus took care of it.

ABOUT A MONTH AGO..

I had dinner with my friend. She’s in perfect health, in better shape than she ever was, happier, much more content and a lot more Spiritual. She just wrapped up her Master’s degree in Pastoral Counseling and has legitimately been very busy. It wasn’t personal that I had not seen her, it’s just life. God is faithful and if I’m ever called to go to seal a hospital scene with the Blood of Jesus…I will go! For a fact, I know that the devil wanted to kill my friend, but he’s under my feet! I’ll keep stomping! Praise God!

These Tangled “Webs” We Weave by Elaine Davenport (Monday, October 1, 2007)

When I put up my first Faith Blog I received a nice note from someone asking if they could put some of my articles on their site. The purpose was to construct a Christian writer Blog. That’s great in theory, but Christian writers all write differently. I said yes. There are many reasons, but the main one was to get the Word out. I should have asked more questions; I truly believe that “one” site is okay. Now for some strange reason; my articles are appearing on other sites. I’ve done some research and I am very concerned. They don’t have our permission to publish our articles. One of the sites that I just noticed a link with my name on it is not in line with my faith perspective. These tangled webs… or should I say “web?” Be advised that if you see any of our articles on other sites with radical philosophies or critical of other ministries; please note, that’s not our style. I did not know that it was possible to be kidnapped on the Internet. I really didn’t.

Our Healing Library Links…… by Elaine Davenport (Sunday, September 30, 2007)

I began a journey seeking Healing from God some years ago; I received so much more than I asked for! A better way to say it was that I told the Lord (in my kitchen) that if He’d heal my body that I’d work for Him. It was a promise that He honored and I intend to fulfill my end of my promise through eternity.

I had to learn not to be “me focused. To do that I had to do some research; to find out and know what was going on in the Word of God, in the body of Christ and around the world. I needed to reestablish my relationship with God, solidify it and form a “new” world view. Today I offer some links to you to help you to form some of your own:

Brain Tumor Disappears for Cadillac, Mi Woman! (Saturday, September 20, 2007)

I thought you might really be inspired by the story of Donna Sykes from Cadillac, Michigan whose brain tumor disappeared on her way to the doctor’s office in Dearborn, Mi.  Read about it here:  Doctor verifies Healing Miracle

Name Dropping isn’t always good by Elaine Davenport (Friday, September 28, 2007)

Be careful who you latch onto, or who latches on to you.
In an article not too far back, I wrote about something that I read in a Rebecca Brown book. That does not mean I endorse Rebecca Brown. People came out of the “woodwork” to read what I had to say about her. Apparently there is some controversy surrounding her. I’m not going to discuss that because this is a healing site and that’s a side jouney I won’t take. It’s a distraction. I just wanted to clarify why I mentioned her in one of my writings. Truth be told; I was able to do something for the kingdom with what I found.

One of my prayer warrior friends was a Rebecca Brown fan. I wasn’t. She left a book here for another friend and I asked the Lord in prayer if I should read it. I was surprised at the reply. The Lord sent me to One Chapter and just one only. I read that Chapter which was very unusual and had no curiosity to read further. I gave the Book to my friend and amazingly the book ended up lost. I will indeed seek the Lord for further insights and report that to you at the appropriate time.

My Journey out of the wheelchair! by Elaine Davenport (Thursday, September 27, 2007)

Many, O Lord my God are thy wonderful works  which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward:  they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee:  if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.

 

                                                                                                   Psalm 40 v. 5



I’ve been thinking about you and your family.  I have also been praying for a week to find the right words to say to you and the other ninety-nine people that I am sending letters to.  To think that I just started off with a handful of people not very long ago.  It’s an incredible thing!  I just started writing to three people to cheer them up and from their responses, I had the inclination to reach out to more people.  You didn’t get this letter because something is wrong with you, you got it because something is “right” with you.  I’ve got to tell you this.  I have come to recognize that people who receive these letters are at different faith levels, so if I try to think too hard about the right words to say to people on all the different levels, I will never get any letters out.  So, I don’t do that anymore, I just send the message and it’s up to you…what you will do with it. 

 

Most of you know my brain tumor story.  They removed it, it wasn’t malignant and I was “supposed” to be able to celebrate, right?  Well, that didn’t happen right away.

 

 The doctors forgot to tell me that there was a possibility that I might have a stroke during the surgery (I did) and they failed to mention that I might lose the ability to talk properly, to walk and I’m really glad they didn’t tell me about the short term memory problems that would surely come with a vengeance or I might have gotten cold feet.   But, you see, I did not put my trust in the doctors.  Now, I know a lot of people, but at that time in my life I just happened to have been in touch with more people  than any other point in my life.  This is important because when I got sick, I was not only in touch with God, but I miraculously was surrounded by”high level”  prayer intercessors. I was teaching Weight Watcher’s classes at the time that I got sick.  My “students” went all out for me!  My friends from work were absolutely awesome!  They were the best friends that anyone could ever have.  I not only had worked at  five  offices, but I was in touch with everybody!  My family was so supportive too; especially my husband and my mother.  My faith level was so high, that I expected to go through it mightily…I did…but it wasn’t on my time table.  It was on God’s time table.  I didn’t expect to write this, but someone needs to hear this.  Perhaps it is you or someone that you know. 

 

                               IT CONTINUES………..

 

The chief neurosurgeon waited at my bedside after surgery.  I wasn’t feeling too good and I couldn’t talk.  I didn’t know yet that walking was going to be a really big issue for me.  My

 

mother and my husband  John formed a cordon at my bedside.   They weren’t going to let anyone run over me. (smile)  The doctor wanted to go back in and do more surgery in two weeks.   I wasn’t up for it, so I simply told her (the doctor), I’d let her know when I was feeling more  like myself again and then we could ”talk” about it.  She was pushing pretty hard, but my mom stopped her.  She left me with the following message:  “We’ll have to go back in and do brain surgery every three to four years, it’s going to grow back!”  The days ahead were very tough for me.  I was messed up. I became extremely depressed and at that time, I didn’t know what to do.  I pulled away from most people and almost lost myself in the process.  If I believed the doctor’s report, you could characterize my life as being very inauspicious. 

 

The only way that I got through it all was because I realized something… God loved me.   God was protecting me, leading me and guiding me.  I relearned walking which was really hard.  I overcame a horrible speech impediment that was embarrassing.  My balance was off and my memory was down for the count.  I had minor headaches for eight years before the surgery.  Had them ten years after surgery.  They were terrible.  I was healed of them earlier this year.

 

 

I was praying for somebody else and God honored me.  Because of Him,  I outlasted a  wheelchair, a walker,  a three legged prong cane and went back to school and got two degrees.  The two degrees…not by my power in any way.   God had multiple purposes for sending me to get them, but one of the first benefits that I got may surprise you.  You see, I became an expert researcher on brain tumors and even wrote two theses.  It was after all that studying that I could see for the first time the real miracle that had taken place in my life.  There was no earthly way I was supposed to survive that tumor!  None.  By the time school was over, there was no visible sign of my illness or injuries from surgery.  I was extricated!  I never had brain surgery again.  They took pictures again and again, but there was nothing there.  They couldn’t understand it.   Okay, I got healed and it was great, but it doesn’t stop there.  I have to help others.  I have to get Gods’ message out.  If He would do all that for me, He would do that and MORE for you.  Sickness is not always physical.  Most of the time, it isn’t.  We were all meant to be whole and healthy!

 

If you know anyone who needs and wants  to receive this letter, please send me their address.

Many of you know my story, but I just want to remind you that HE is a God of Miracles.  Please remember this for anything that you face because HE is there.  I love you take care and I’ll write soon.   I continue to pray for you all each and every day by name -making petitions and I expect things to be well with you. 

Thanks so much to all of you who write those beautiful letters, give words of encouragement  and  those of you who call. In fact, thank you if you just pray for everyone in need and those who receive this letter.  I expect Blessings to pour forth because of it.   I know that all of your schedules are busy and important and I cherish you.


 

The grass withereth, the flower fadeth; but the word of our God shall stand for ever.
