Prison Ministry

People do not have to be behind bars to be imprisoned. Many are bound in the mind. Some are held captive by tradition. Others are chained by fear and unbelief. When we minister with the authority of God and power of the Word, then yokes will be destroyed to the glory of God!

We must move from the place of dancing for our own enjoyment, and have a sincere burden for souls. People need to experience the true presence of the Lord like never before. We must make it our business to show them the open door that is before them through Christ Jesus.

Pray and ask the Lord what songs and choreography can be used to destroy yokes because of the anointing. Be sensitive to Him when He speaks and reveals instructions, even if they may seem farfetched. Have faith that the Lord uses imperfect people, and that we are not worthy, but because Jesus lives in us, we are free to release others from bondage. He came to set the captive free, and freedom starts with us.

Psalm 142:7 (NKJV)
Bring my soul out of prison, that I may praise Your name; The righteous shall surround me, for You shall deal bountifully with me.”

Acts 16:25-26(NKJV)
"But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were loosed."

My Dear Sister,
Thank you so much for the daily words of truth and inspiration! It is much needed. I truly appreciate the information you are sharing. We as Ministers of Dance MUST stay before the Lord daily to make sure we are prepared to minister effectively. It is my desire to be pure and holy in my dance and in all areas of my life. Thank you again and may the Lord richly bless this ministry!!!!!
