Praying To Overcome Invisible Entry Barriers
Recently, I received a frantic midnight call from one of my readers in Atlanta.
A member of his was facing a foreclosure on their home in just a matter of days. He needed my advice... desperately.
I sat down and wrote 14 prayer points
and emailed that to him, along with specific instructions on when and how to pray them
(just to be sure we're all on the same page, a prayer point is a statement created from Scripture, designed to address a specific problem head on. I'll give you some samples quite soon).
He quickly passed it on to his friend - Betty.
As sometimes happens, Betty was too tired to pray that day. But she remembered Claire, a childhood friend of hers in Texas was being kicked out of her home for similar reasons. So what she did was call her and dictate the prayers to her over the phone.
Here's what happened...
Claire prayed those prayers that night (desperately, I might add) before going to bed as instructed. The following morning she was awakened by the shrill sound of the phone ringing.
"Claire?" the voice on the other end asked.
"Yes, who is on the line?" she answered, wondering who could be calling so early... at 5:30 a.m.
It was her account officer at the mortgage company, calling to tell her she had a brainwave during the night that could help her avoid foreclosure! She would have to discuss with her manager that morning and if all went well, all she would have to do was come in and sign a few papers later in the day.
By 1:00 pm the second call came. Claire hurried over for the paperwork.
Well, when Betty heard Claire's story, she quickly started to pray the exact, same prayers.
Before the week was out, one of her "distant" relatives (whom she hadn't seen in ages) suddenly dropped by out of the blue.
He ended up buying the property and (hear this) re-selling it to her at zero cost!
Actually there's a little-known biblical principle behind all this. You see, the prayer points I gave were carefully designed to pull down invisible barriers of entry that exists in every community, in every city, in every country on this planet.
What Is An Entry Barrier?
Look at this as an invisible structure (or entity) whose job is to keep people out of enjoying certain benefits in certain places.
Think of the many (well-qualified) people you know who somehow can't seem to settle down to a good job; or some of those who seem to lose them mysteriously;
Or those who cannot hang on to good things for too long - before you know it, relationships turn sour, friends become enemies, depression and drugs set in (there's a really huge market for anti-depressants in my city...).
If you notice these things happening repeatedly,
you need to carry out what is referred to as,
"Spiritual Environmental Sanitation."
Pick a date when you could have a very light dinner (or none at all).
Just before going to bed, do these 8 things:
1. Start by singing praises to God.
2. Open your Bible to Psalm 91 and read the whole chapter out loud (this is one of the most powerful 'covering' Scriptures in the Bible).
3. Symbolically sprinkle the blood of Jesus upon your land (your land is the spiritual space God has allocated to you).
4. Ask the blood of Jesus to begin to speak over your land (Heb. 12:24 says the blood speaks, you know).
5. Address the gates and high places of your land using Ps 24:7
6. Ask the LORD to loose His angels over your land.
7. Use the key of David to open the prison doors of your land (this is a spiritual key that Jesus gives to His beloved followers for this kind of operation Rev. 3:7).
8. Give thanks to God and close with praises.
In a nutshell, that's the pattern I followed when I created those prayer points.
Why am I telling you this?
To show you that for every problem you may face, there are targeted prayers you can pray to deal with them.
Unfortunately, most folks are unaware of these and the consequences are that a lot of people are suffering needlessly.
What I'm hoping to do here is offer you something you can do right now to get immediate results for your efforts - if you're a Christian.
(I'm not interested in telling you pie-in-the-sky stories that don't work).
If you're not (a Christian), you can become one - the door of salvation is still open and is still FREE (in this regard, please feel free to shoot me a personal email at: firstname.lastname@example.org)

Stepping Into the Darkness
One of the "loopholes" in my philosophical belief system when I was younger (and at this point in my life, that means "almost middle-aged"! ) was whether or not there was an evil force in the universe equal to God who served as man's adversary. He was the original "bad guy," and the human race seemed to be caught between these two invisible forces - one of good and one of evil.
It is important and necessary that we regularly spend time in purposeful self-examination. We need to take the time to examine our rationales, our pretenses, our masquerades, our motives, our justifications, and our reasoning.

Why Do Bad Things Happen to Good People?
Did you ever see something go wrong around you and suddenly burst out, "How on Earth did I create that?"Really, how can bad things happen, even to the sweetest, kindest, most spiritual people on the planet? Where's the fairness in that?The root of the question lies partly in the fact that we live in a state of polarity consciousness. This is a point of view where life is seen as a contrast between opposing forces, and that events are either good or bad.
Praying in Secret
"But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly." --Matthew 6:6There was a time when I thought I could not turn to God.
What Does Unconditional Love Really Mean?
Unconditional love means unconditional freedom. Love and freedom are two of those words that are interchangeable.
Enlightenment, which is as varied as each individual's fingerprint, is an experience of regaining our perfection in God or Christ consciousness, and words alone cannot express the joyfulness and peace in that discovery. God energy is perfect energy, and because we are God's offspring, so are we perfect.

Honoring the Sacred in Everyday Life
How many of us rush blindly through our days, fall into bed exhausted, and wake up the next morning to do it all over again? For many of us, our lives are composed of millions of meaningless moments, all strung together -- perhaps with a sprinkling of sacred moments mixed in. I'm sure you can think of a few sacred moments in your own life.
