While in my prayer time I asked the Lord, “What do I need to write today for all of us (The SUMites)?”
At first, I didn’t hear anything but as I rose to leave the Lord began to speak over me…. And He said this is for all of us.
I know how difficult it is.
I know the challenges of your life. I see the struggles in your home, with your spouse. I know that you are alone fighting for decency and for Godliness for yourself and your children. In the night hours, I am sitting next to you as the tears drop from your eyes. I am holding your hand, my child.
I recognize the blows come in words that tear at your very soul. The disappointment that works to tell you it’s not worth the effort. And whispers of lies that are convincing you to stop fighting, to admit defeat. I see your torment.
But today, I want you to know deep in your soul, how I’ve been by your side every minute. You have a great hope. Your hope isn’t just a wish or a thought that perhaps something will change. Your hope is alive and filled with truth that something will be better tomorrow.
HOPE in the Kingdom is a substance and powerful. It is a word that when wielded in faith decimates the strongholds of argument. It silences the defeat of unchanged lives and heart. Hope is the greatest gift given to my children on earth.
When you lift words of prayer, with hope, this is the activation of your faith. I’ve blessed you with life and new beginnings. As believers, every morning that you rise is a choice to step into a new life, new hope, and redemption of past lies, sins and failures.
This is real hope. You have promises that hold power. Truth that brings steadfastness and love that changes everything.
I know you feel weary. Bring your battle scares to me in the morning or evening and I WILL HEAL THEM. In their place are medals of honor. They seal up the wounds and release power.
You are an overcomer. Let me remind you of this truth. You overcome the arrows of the enemy and you release light and truth. Your marriage is the one thing the enemy wants to destroy more than anything else. So, when you rise and fight, serve and pray for your family, GREAT IS YOUR REWARD. Every day you continue to hope releases a power to support. Angels are set on assignment to walk with you.
Walk it out. Pray the torment stops this hour. Demand it stop speaking lies to you, your spouse, and children. Pray the Holy Spirit into your home and the hearts of those you love.
And hear me now…. I AM THERE WITH YOU. I will not let you fail. The fire rages about you but what you are gaining in knowledge and experience is everything.
When you are doubting or feeling defeated, open My Word. Read the promises from Matthew aloud to yourself. Tell your soul, as David told his soul, these are my promises and I want every one of them, for myself and my family. In Jesus name.
Hope is your life. It is the substance that will carry you home and into the gates of the Kingdom. You will enter in with great celebration and adorned with badges of honor because you chose hope in the dark and you saw it come alive in the passing of the years.
I adore you. And I leave you this promise to stand upon today: I will never leave you nor forsake you.
The Lord, God , Almighty
I pray this word has encouraged someone who was wavering. Stand strong and know you are not alone. I’m with you. The angels are around you. The Holy Spirit is whispering truths to you. Jesus created every opportunity for you and God, Almighty is your strength, power, and wisdom. Hugging you tight today, Lynn
Praise the Lord, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits— who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. —Psalm 103:1-5
If you need prayer today, leave a request in the comments. I will be in my office on Thursday and Friday to pray for you. Lynn

Marching Around Jericho is a spiritual guide. As you read through the pages, powerful and transformative instruction and equipping takes place. We follow Jesus as he leads us around the walls, imparting kingdom truths with each passing, finally arriving at the gates of the walled-off city, our spouse’s unbelieving heart. After the circles in prayer are complete, we arrive fully prepared to command the walls to crumble and be removed, making a way for our spouse to step from the rubble of lies and captivity, into faith and freedom!
