They Called Her “Irma”

On August 30th, a tropical wave that began from the coast of Cape Verde Islands would wreak havoc a week later on an island called Barbuda. Irma, which means “War Goddess”, lived up to her name. Any land mass that was in her path was met with certain destruction and mayhem. And due to the sheer size and power of this storm, it became the focal point of news outlets in the Caribbean and North America. This in turn created an atmosphere of anxiety and fear for anyone that might have to face her. Continue reading “They Called Her “Irma””

No Comfort Zone Challenge: Week 1

Image of EmRossi


For the longest while, I had this thing about my voice. It’s a funny thing, because I’ve worked a few customer service positions and it required me being on the phone. Anywho, I decided months ago that I would try something to help me appreciate my voice and started singing karaoke.


Over the weekend, I challenged myself to sing a few songs from artists that I really admire. Are there any fears you would like to challenge with me for the next 30 days? If so, let’s help each other out.


Below are links to some songs I recorded…tell me what you think…be kind. LOL

John Hahn: In Him Is Life


Here in this one verse, God answers that one question:

Why do you exist? Why do I exist? For Jesus. You exist for Him. And He created us so that we can share in that relationship. That is why you and I are breathing this morning. God created you for a purpose, and that purpose is to be with Him…to know Him.


Everything in your life and my life He orchestrated so that you would come to know Him. The parents that you were born from, the living situation that you grew up in, the absence of your parents or the presence of them in your childhood. All those things God allowed and orchestrated whether we define it as good or bad, but it was for the purpose of you coming to know Him. When you come to know Him personally, that deep craving in your heart that asks the question, “What am I doing here?” is answered. Because he values me. He created me. He wants to be in a relationship with me. That fills me in a way that no one else can.


So now my relationships become about service and not about being a receiver. And that’s the way God created us to be in our families, at work, in our school; that we would enter these circumstances as servants because we’ve already been fed by God. It’s a freeing thing to know that you don’t need someone else’s value to feel good about yourself. God has created us to be with Him. So in Jesus is the real vibrant spiritual life. In otherwords, if I don’t have Jesus then I am walking around spiritually dead. Do you feel like the walking dead? Like you’re going through life…the motions of life, doing all the different things that you have to accomplish in life, but inside you’re dead. There is no joy. There is no satisfaction–just gloom and doom.


John 1:4  In him was life,[a] and the life was the light of men.


In Jesus, you can have that life. How? By receiving it. It’s not something that’s earned. It’s not something you can buy. It’s simply coming and saying, “You’re worthy of my life, of my heart. I want you to give me the life that is truly life.

Prayer for Self-Control



Dear God,

Please help me to have more self-control. Train me Lord, like an athlete to be strong and determined. Feed me with your truth in the scriptures to make me healthy. May I exercise muscles of forgiveness, patience and peacemaking. Lord, increase my stamina to give out to those in need. And may I be freed from past hurts and confusions so that I can run free.

Prayer For Healing and Deliverance

This is simply a video I’ve put together where I would like to pray for anyone within the sound of my voice.

All I ask you to do is to agree with me as we seek our Heavenly Father.

Please continue to meditate on this prayer for yourself.

Speak it daily or listen to this video over and over again and allow the Word of God concerning healing and deliverance to reach deep into your spirit.

To maximize your results from this prayer, if you have not made Jesus the Lord and Saviour of your life please watch my video on The Prayer Of Salvation and come back to this video.

Let us pray…

Heavenly Father, we gather together here online and come into agreement in the wonderful and powerful name of Jesus.

Where two or more are gathered there You shall surely be and anything we agree upon as touching You will surely do.

The Bible says that if there is any unforgiveness that it should be dealt with before praying.

Therefore we release any anger, bad feelings, resentment or any other wrong attitude before You now.

We lay it at your feet and we release and forgive those who have wronged us.

I lift up those watching this video and we come into agreement and ask for healing and deliverance.

Lord, thank You for sending Your Word to heal those listening now and delivering them from all their destructions.

Right now those listening let go of all unforgiveness, resentment, anger, and bad feelings toward anyone.

Father as we agree online we give attention to Your words and incline our ear to Your sayings…

Father, since the Spirit of Him Who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in them, He Who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to their mortal body through the Spirit Who dwells in them…

We declare every cell in their body, every system, every organ, every function from the top of their head to the soles of their feet get in alignment to health and wholeness in Jesus Name.

We speak peace and restoration over their body and even their mind, will and emotions.

We declare mental clarity now and that the listener be strengthened to enable them to cast down the lies of the devil and those self sabotaging thoughts.

We declare that they will think on Your Word Father and meditate on who they are in Jesus.

We bind your peace around the listener’s soul now in Jesus Name.

We come boldly to Your throne of grace and present those listening before you for deliverance.

I stand in the gap and I am praying now knowing that the Holy Spirit within me takes hold together with those listening against the evils that would attempt to hold them in bondage.

We break the power of the enemy in their life right now.

In the Name of Jesus, we declare that the traps and plans of the enemy are exposed, useless and void, and come to nothing…

The listener has escaped the snare of the devil who has held them captive.

The listener does Your will.

They will glorify You in their spirit, soul, and body.

Thank You Father that Jesus was manifested that He might destroy the works of the devil.

The devil’s works are destroyed in the listener’s life in the name of Jesus.

The listener walks in the Kingdom of God which is righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit!

Praise the Lord!

Thank You that those listening will prosper and be in health, even as their soul prospers.

We believe we receive and thank You in the wonderful Name of Jesus.
