Little Book, Big Prayers: Spiritual Growth


To follow is an excerpt of the Introduction to the first “Little Book, Big Prayers” 4-book series scheduled for release October 27th.

Prayer should be contagious and something you would want to catch. Sometimes it is caught and taught by example from anointed men and women of God. The ideal way to catch the desire to pray is by accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour and being filled with His Holy Spirit. Our teacher and helper for prayer and living a redeemed life is through the Holy Spirit. When you yield to the enabling assistance of the Spirit you will want to commune and fellowship with God frequently. The Spirit helps us approach God with sincerity and humility.

Prayer is your access to the holy place, the presence of God–His glory, and for receiving revelation or the answer for your concerns. Developing a greater prayer life means you want to take hold of God. You want to know about Him, who He is, what He does, what He wants. You also find out who you are, why you are here, and what you can have. Prayer is your spiritual sustenance and helps you learn to yield and abide in Christ so you can become like Him.

As you pray you will experience the manifestation of kingdom alternatives to your circumstances. I heard someone say that prayers never die but live on before God until answered. If you want to communicate with God and gain a personal relationship with Him, you need to pray. Prayer is sharing your heart and mind about a matter with Him. God wants to hear from you even though He already knows what your needs are. Prayer is seeking His presence just to be in His presence. It isn’t necessary to want or need anything material to commune and fellowship with Him.

When you place God first in your life through daily prayer, you are introduced to a wealth of his promises. You can rest assured that He is your source. He deepens His relationship with you and causes you to see signs of change and your spiritual growth. You will find that you have greater peace and power to overcome obstacles and challenges. You will experience abundant living and provision. A deeper relationship through prayer reveals that God is truly omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscient.

Prayer makes you ready to receive His compassion, love, faithfulness, goodness, and strength. You will find an increase of His presence and glory in your environment. You will see His guidance and direction for your life and relationships. The scriptures say that you will reap what you sow. If you sow the seeds of prayer in the atmosphere, you will reap a harvest of blessing. That blessing includes, provision, protection, healing, and deliverance for every facet of your life.

Prayer: When I am Bitter


Lord when my soul is bitter I seek your deliverance and peace. As I cry out for your mercy, liberate me from the pit of corruption and cast all of my sins behind me. Create in me a clean heart and renew my spirit with your love and righteousness. Refresh me by your Holy Spirit. You have forgiven me by your great mercies and unfailing love. With the enabling power of the Holy Spirit, I am patient, kind and forgiving of others. You give peace to my soul as I choose the wisdom and knowledge of your truth.

I am not envious of others and do not harbor strife in my heart because it produces confusion and evil. Bragging or amplifying lies is deceitfully wicked. Carnal, sensual and evil conversation does not flow from my lips because it lacks wisdom. Hatred stirs up strife and contentions but love covers all sins. Dig up and empty out everything in me that is rooted in bitterness. Fill the empty places in my heart with your love. Abiding in your grace and favor destroys the root of bitterness and keeps it from springing up again. Abiding in your love delivers me from defilement.

Thank you for delivering me from bitterness. Thank you for delivering me from anger and wrath. My soul is released from the captivity of a brawling nature. My mouth no long speaks evil and I have put away malicious thoughts. My conversations are righteous and pure. Daily I show meekness and wisdom through obeying your word and walking in your ways. You have ordered my steps and with joy and gladness I follow your pathways with all diligence. Thank you for the abiding fruit of your spirit. It is your love, grace and peace that flows freely through me to others. I bless others as you have blessed me.

When I Need to Trust


When I Need to Trust
A prayer from the new release
He That Healeth Thee

Lord I pour out my heart to you because you are my refuge. You have not forsaken or abandoned me. You are my strength and shield so I trust you with all my heart. When you help me my heart is filled with joy. I am able to sing songs of thanksgiving and praise. Each time I search for you, I find you and increase in the knowledge of who you are. You have kept my enemies from rejoicing when I have been overwhelmed. I am rescued from disgrace. My hope is in you when I pour out my complaints in your presence. As I place my trust in you Lord and do what is good, I live in safety and prosperity. At all times, I place my trust in you to combat fear. You protect and save me from destruction. Like an eagle you cover me with your feathers and shelter me under your wings. You are my God and I am devoted to you. I live to serve you only. Your faithful promises are my armor and protection. My confidence resides in knowing that you care for me.

I learn of your unfailing love each day as I am comforted by your Holy Spirit. Order my footsteps because I trust in the pathways you have designed for my life. I trust in you at all times and I do not depend on my own understanding. Those who listen to instruction will prosper. I follow your instructions and I prosper in every endeavor. I receive guidance and direction through your scriptures. I learn of your ways as I meditate upon you day and night. I listen for your council when I wait upon you in prayer. Those who trust the Lord will be joyful but the foolish chose their own way. So I chose the safety of wisdom and fearlessly trust you. You save me when I am weak. You are my strength and song, and you cause me to live victoriously.

“Embracing Change”


(Excerpted from the Introduction of
He That Healeth Thee
by Christine Brooks Martin)

I know the anguish that comes with depression. But when I yielded to the power and might of a loving God, He broke the bondage and captivity of that experience off of my life. When I sincerely desired and accepted His hand, always extended to those who want Him, I was healed. Every thought or perception that fed depression was replaced with liberty and tears of joy. I was able to forgive and love myself. Then I was able to forgive and release those who hurt, rejected and abandoned me. As I obeyed God by embracing changes to different areas of my life, I had better experiences and met new people. Each time I reflect on how He changed my life, I praise Him even more. I clap my hands and I dance with joy to celebrate the liberty I have through Jesus Christ. My mouth is no longer gagged spiritually, and my hands and feet are no longer bound. My mind is free to think of what is true, honest, just, pure, lovely, noteworthy and of a good report (Philippians 4:8).

The whole earth reels daily from the effects of prevalent evil. The adversary to our soul loves to fill our hearts and minds with doom and gloom. Sometimes it seems as though we’re kept up-to-date on more of the bad news than the good. And it will be that way as long as stuff happens and we make ourselves accessible and accommodating to it. God performs miracles in the lives of people everyday, and we might hear about a few instances on occasion. But you must be proactive in your healing process. When you believe and fully embrace the love and word of God, your mind and heart can undergo the necessary changes to affect your life. You can get rid of thoughts, emotions, memories, or imaginations and behavior that are destructive to your overall health and well-being. The scriptures say, what a man thinks in his heart, so is he. When you embrace the Lord and the scriptures, you will have a confession of faith that is Yes and Amen.

The scriptures also declare that you will eat the fruit of your lips. So if you say or believe the challenges in your life are worsening, the universe will bring what you say or believe into existence. I’m not suggesting that you lie to yourself, but instead, say what God says about Himself and about you. He said you are healed body, soul and spirit. You are healed of all manner of sickness, diseases and infirmities. You are healed of depression, the seed and source of it, and you are not forsaken or alone.

I will decree in your behalf that you are delivered from the yoke of bondage, every fetter and stock of iron. Any blindfold, pit and trap, every obstacle, net and stumbling block, and work of evil is removed. Evil words spoken to you or about you are canceled out. Every evil thought from others, evil thoughts you think or believe about yourself are nullified and void. You will not lack financial help or necessary resources for your livelihood. You will not be defeated. You will not be destroyed. You shall live and not die and declare the works of the Lord (Psalm 118:17).

He That Healeth Thee (Preface excerpt)


There are people, events, situations and circumstances that are bound to challenge your existence. Hopefully they will not mirror the Job experience. But they will affect you mentally, physically, emotionally and/or spiritually. When you grieve, mourn, or experience pain and despair there is a corresponding cry of the soul. Even if you try to hide it or pretend it doesn’t exist, it is there. The good news is God hears every cry of the soul. He created us to communicate that cry to Him alone. That’s why it seems as though no one can fully understand what you’re going through. Or you may wonder why nothing or no one can effectively resolve your situation. Turning to God is the solution and remedy for every cry of the soul. He interprets, understands and He heals. Why shouldn’t He? He is the Creator and He knows you very, very well… before you were born… every hair on your head. Some people are nay-sayers because they choose to doubt there is a God or they lack faith in Him. But Abba is the Father on every spiritual birth certificate. His signature is all over existence.

One of the keys to achieving healing, wholeness and well-being is to acknowledge that you don’t like what you’re experiencing. When you acknowledge your feelings it’s easier to receive help. Then the next step is to yield to God’s help. Through faith in God, prayer, praise and the scriptures, you will be able to make necessary transitions from the effects of any crisis, affliction, tragedy or trial. When you study the scriptures you will begin to understand who He can be in your life. You will discover who you are in Christ Jesus. Peace, restoration, healing, wholeness, and well-being becomes accessible to you.

My goal is to simply point you to the truth, which is the eternal word of God, the scriptures. My late pastor, Dr. Robbie Horton told me one day that “some things are caught–beyond seeing, hearing or being in the midst of that something. When you recognize your need for what is presented, and you’re determined to receive or embrace it, then you will allow it to process and change you.”

Whatever state you’re in for whatever reason(s), prayer and the scriptures are a source of comfort, healing, guidance and direction. Through a personal relationship with God and praying the scriptures, you have the keys and access to emotional, physical and spiritual-well being and wholeness.

When I Have Made Mistakes


You are the Lord my God who is merciful and have not forsaken me. Teach me to acknowledge when I have strayed from your pathways. Teach me to acknowledge when I have done iniquity before you so I will do it no more. I do not forget your precious promises and I quickly repent when I have turned away from your truth. You are the Almighty God who restores my soul as I confess and repent of my sin, iniquity and transgressions. Daily I seek you with all my heart and soul. You make me glad because you can be found. Nothing separates me from the love of Christ. As I walk in your love, I am not the cause of tribulation to others. I am not the cause of distress to others. I am not the cause of persecution to others. I am not the cause of lack or barrenness to others. And I am not the cause of danger to others. I apologize quickly and ask for their forgiveness so my offerings to you will be acceptable and blessed.

You enable me to spread the knowledge of Jesus Christ like a sweet life-giving perfume everywhere. With you Lord, there is nothing too impossible for me to do for you. I am born of God and my faith is victorious over the challenges of the world. Thank you for physical, mental, emotional restoration. Thank you for victory through my Lord Jesus Christ. My life is a testimony to yielding to your Holy Spirit and obedience to your truth. I continually seek the knowledge of your truth. In all my getting I receive understanding and exercise wisdom. As I overcome the challenges of life and this world, I inherit all things that are needful for life, peace and godliness. You have made me glad and I rejoice because of all you have done and are doing for me. Lord you are exalted forever. You are my God and I am your son/daughter.
