"You have to work hard to offend Christians. By nature, Christians are the most forgiving, understanding, and thoughtful group of people I've ever dealt with. They never assume the worst. They appreciate the importance of having different perspectives. They're slow to anger, quick to forgive, and almost never make rash judgments or act in anything less than a spirit of total love . . . No, wait--I'm thinking of Labrador retrievers!" David Learn, 1998

Glimpses of Grace 14: The battle is joined, part 2

    Here are specific things to pray for. Be sure you pray in Jesus' name and by His authority. (Some of these are in the physical realm but much of it is in the spiritual realm.)
--that we will have wisdom to know what and whom to believe, discernment as to who is genuinely of the one true God and whom to trust. For unity in the body of Christ. That those who are deceived will be delivered from deception and mind control, restored to their right minds, and will repent of their involvement in evil.
--that God will expose what needs to be exposed and judge what needs to be judged.
--that black hoods will not hide identities or agendas. That pentagrams used against this church and God's people here will be utterly destroyed and all curses made using the pentagram will be of no effect. That the Lord will remove all ungodly rings, aprons, nooses, tools, treasure chests, jewels, partitions, brands, seals, ropes, chains, wires, cords,  threads, programs, webbing, tunnels, etc. 
--that any ungodly stones, insignia, documents, books, etc. laid in the new foundation of our church will be exposed and removed, that all ungodly dedications of Grace Brethren Church to a new, ungodly foundation will fail and be powerless. That any and all false/mocking gods, trinities, baptisms, communions, crucifixions, etc. done on our church property or on behalf of anyone in our church will be rendered null and void.
--that any and all curses, ungodly oaths, vows, incantations, covenants, promises, etc., spoken against Grace Brethren Church or any of its members that are "undeserved" or "without cause" will not "land" ("alight" or "come to rest," Proverbs 26:2), but be rendered powerless. That missiles of confusion, fear, chaos, division, destruction, etc. which the enemy is hurling at God's people will be turned back against him. That the agenda of the enemy will not come to pass but God's will alone be done and that God will be exalted and glorified through His victory over these forces of darkness. 
--That all evil, unclean and mocking spirits will leave all the property of Grace Brethren Church (including the property on Atlantic Avenue and on the south side of 36th Street) immediately and together, never to return or send replacements. That there will be NO retaliation by the enemy against anyone for these prayers or for action God leads us to take in response to our prayers. That God will protect our health, safety, minds, marriages, families, property, belongings (including cars and pets!) and reputations.
--That God will remove, cleanse, burn up, and utterly destroy any and all defilement and corruption left by evil and unclean spirits on this church property and restore holiness. That He will heal and comfort those who have been wounded, threatened, mocked, and intimidated by the enemy through the words and actions of these people.
--That the communication and transportation systems (ley lines) of the enemy will be scrambled, burned up, and destroyed. That what God is doing--when, where, how, through whom--will be under the enemy's radar and that the weapons of the enemy will go astray and be rendered harmless. That the enemy will be blindsided, not us.
--That we will overcome evil with good by blessing those who curse us, forgiving and praying for them (Matthew 5:44). 
Our Father, the one we worship and praise, is Jehovah, the almighty God of the universe. We believe this God has told us, "You are the remnant. Be strong. Don't be afraid. Stand and I will take care of the rest!" He is with us (including you), in us, around us, overarching us, upholding us. His warrior angels are doing battle for us. I, Jessica, saw (in my spirit) God's light start to shine. There were rats running from it. The rats were in darkness and the darkness went with them. Another intercessor saw God "bringing His forces on huge beautiful white horses!" 
"God chooses things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. And He chooses things that are powerless to shame those who are powerful." (I Corinthians 1:27)
     Come have your way with us, Lord Jesus!
