Dorothy's Difficult Start

Dorothy is the daughter of a client of mine. She was born October 31st, 2016 with a Congenital diaphragmatic hernia. She has been in the NICU since birth. It has been a challenge for her parents, especially financially. When I became acquainted with her situation, our prayer team have been praying for her. And I was recently informed of a gofundme page that was created for her. The information is below. On it you can read more about Dorothy and her struggles, and about her family. I hope everyone reading will give something. I know times are hard, but $5, $10, $20 would not (should not) break your bank. Whatever the case, lifting up little Dorothy in prayer cannot be over stated


Thank you and remain blessed

Prince's Testimony (Sept 2014)

This is a testimony from an inmate named Prince I have been writing and praying for since 2012. I will post sections of his letter to me:

"I have finally been granted parole! 14 years and 8 months I have been in the belly of the whale, and now I am being released. God is good all the time. I just got word of it about 2 weeks ago, and I have just been numb. I guess the gravity of the situation hasnt fully sank in yet.
God is so good, because he has truly answered my prayer exactly how I asked it while in my time of distress when I clearly didnt feel I was entitled to it. I have to fulfill my end of the agreement and live my life for God, and giving my testimony"

Hallelujah! Indeed, God is a merciful God!

Thursday Fasting and Praying

By Timalyn

As many of you know (or forgot by now), I lead the women's ministry for Iron Sharpens Iron. Over the past few months several women have to come to me struggling with health issues (miscarriages, depression, suicide, cancer, diabetes, and blood pressure). As women we do not put ourselves first nor do we lean on others as we allow them to lean on us. For the next four Thursdays, we will be fasting and praying for mental and physical wellness. I am not going to dictate how you fast, but any sacrifice you make scares the devil. To all of my girls (and guys if you would like to participate) out there struggling with something specific, inbox me or email tfranklin@imcgus.com. Now I will tell you that I don't do pity parties. If we pray and God gives you direction that you ignore, then I am going to keep it 100. Love you baby girls and let the devil know he isn't a match for the Diamond Divas.

Below is our prayer for fasting on Thurs.

"Father, we thank you for your mercy and your grace. Most of all we thank you for being in covenant with you. You are a covenant keeping God, for thousands of generations, so we know you will continue with us. You will not suddenly change on us. Therefore, our confidence is in knowing that your promise to heal and restore us will come to pass in our lives in Jesus name. For everyone having some form of physical and/or mental ailment, we bring them before you (*insert name here*). You said you sent forth your word and healed them......so we send forth your word RIGHT NOW to heal them, in Jesus name. You said you are the Lord God our Healer, Jehovah Rapha, so we bring as many in need of healing, and hide them under the shadow of your wings. You said you are our Shepherd, and we shall not be in want, and that even though we walk thru the valley of the shadow of death, we shall fear no evil. You promised that you are our light and salvation, and the stronghold of our life. Therefore we stand on these promises and speak divine health over the the lives of everyone in need of healing in Jesus name.

"And we are not ignorant of the devices of the enemy. We rebuke every form of sickness and ailment and disease in the name of Jesus. That name has been lifted up above every other name, so whatever name sickness and disease goes by, the name of Jesus is higher than it. In that name is POWER. In that name is HEALING and DELIVERANCE. That name is a strongtower for the righteous to run into and find safety in. So we speak that name over our lives, over the lives of our loved ones, and the lives of everyone that has been touched by any form of ailment. We decree that the power of sickness and disease is broken right now. And we seal their healing by the blood of Jesus.

"Thank you Father. We receive answers to our prayers right now. You said if two or three agree upon a thing here on earth, it shall be established in heaven. We have touched and agreed by faith, so it is established. We shall speak your word, and your word only. We shall not speak the lies of the enemies, or neither shall we be moved by what we see, but by your word, and your word alone. In Jesus name we pray. Amen"

Volunteers Needed!

Greetings everyone,

Do you have a heart to minister to people, but don't have an opportunity to do this?

Have you quit going to church for whatever reason, but you know you are anointed to minister to people?

Do you want to touch lives around the world?

Iron Sharpens Iron (ISI) is a growing ministry, and in need of multiple ministers in various offices and responsibilities. Below are a listing of the various offices and responsibilities needed:

INTERCESSORS - We need intercessors and people who have a heart for praying. People are constantly looking for someone to pray with them, their families, and issues they face. Its not about getting into people's business and knowing secret details of goings on in their life. We simply want to stand in the gap and pray!
Also, we need intercessors who will help re-establish the Monthly (or weekly) prayer conference calls that we used to have.

MINISTERS - We have a prison ministry that has really grown, and unfortunately we are understaffed in ministers to write to these inmates. Ministers are needed who have a heart to write letters to inmates. Your privacy and security and safety is put into consideration, so at no time is your real identity or location available to the inmates. Information divulged is all at your discretion

COUNSELORS - We need counselors who are anointed to minister to specific issues or areas, like sexual issues, body cutting, eating disorders, career counseling, business and money management, etc. Whatever area you feel God has anointed and gifted you in, we are interested in hearing from you.

ADMINS - ISI has a growing presence on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Yahoo groups, and administrators to assist in managing these various platforms are needed.

Anyone interested in any of these opportunities, or with questions or suggestions, please email us at IronSharpensIronGroup@yahoo.com along with any relevant information about yourself and your heart to serve. Investing your anointing, skills and God given gifts in the kingdom of God shouldn't be a complicated thing requiring you a lengthy church membership or courting an inner caucus of a holy tribunal. All it requires is being a born again Christian and having a heart and commitment to serve. We all are graced to serve in whatever office we serve in, by the Spirit of God.
