Sermon Title: Breaking and Entering..


Michelle Alexander – Age in color blindness… When it comes to the sentences practices in our society.. Our nation, our public jails have over one million of our people… Black are incarcerated for drugs, etc… While whites are there for more killing crimes, etc.. Breaking and entering does not require anything to be broken … Some people are granted access to parts of your house… If they go into a room that they are not authorized in.. it can be considered breaking and entering… There is breaking and entering…


Prayer will take place at the family life center every Saturday for one hour… Engage yourself in corporate prayer..


Underline and high light : “LET THEM” have dominion… Prayer is born out of God’s arrangement and assignment… It sets up legal precedence… Male and female are ruler over earth… Every animal and every live stock, we are suppose to have dominion and authority over them.. That establishes legal authority… Man is over the responsibility and ownership and auxiliary properties… In an influence and interference from earth.. Nothing can happen in the earth without the steward, the owners permission… He gave the leadership and authorship to the leadership of man.. He is solve-rent and will not break his own law.. He will not come into the earth because this is not his dominion or his territory without God’s permission… Someone has authority if you let him into your space.. He said I stand and knock at the door, it’s up to you to let him… If I do not invite him in, it is illegal if he comes in without my consent.. He needs an invitation so he does not invite himself under the law… When he does something significant on this earth, he uses a human body to dwell in…. He used Noah to build the ark… He used the body of Abraham… He said out him will become many sons and daughters.. He used Joshua to knock down the walls of Jericho…. He used a super bad sister name Esther… He used the three Hebrew boys.. He let them know that if you stand, I will stand with you and control the fire… He used Daniel in the Lions den… He knew Daniel could not be subdued because the Lions worked for him and he commanded when the Lions when they would open up their mouth… He could not find a man that was Holy enough, so he sent his only Begotten son Jesus that took over the sins of this world… We know why they are trying to kill you…. They know if you ever get connected to God, you will change the world… God allows a trial to come, he knows you are going to give it to God and he is going to hear your voice.. The enemy is provoking me to pray.. If it had not been a storm, it would not have dragged me to my knees to pray.. What you did, you meant it for evil, but God meant it for Good… John Wesley says you have to have prayer… God is no longer operating on his own he is connected the Father in heaven… He is whispering in his ear on our behalf… The Father deals with Law but Jesus deals with directly with our soul under grace…. You have to be careful when you deal with church folks…. You are locked up, but you have the key like a roaring lion… You will cause a disturbance that releases something in the heavenly realm when you open up your mouth and began to pray… I don’t always have to lift up my voice… but when I am laying in the bed I whisper to God, If I ever needed you before I need you right now… When you are sitting in your car and you began to pray…. When God drop someone in your spirit, they were on your mind and you did not know… God trusts you with their prayer… God wants us to pray..,. When I pray, things happen… There are 3 things I can think of changed when I started to pray… I looked at my hands and my hands look new… I looked at my feet and they did too… When I began to pray God can break into stuff and situations… When I began to pray God will break in… God will break into your bank account… Lift up your hands all ye gates… When you pray, you know you don’t deserve the next blessing, but you are bold enough to ask for it in my name… It says ask and it shall be given Knock and the door shall be open… It will be so by Easter Sunday… You are getting ready to move to another chapter of your life… When you pray, you break into heaven… Speak those things as though they were… Whatsoever will be loosed on earth will be loosed in heaven.. We have the power to break some stuff up… Whatever the devil tried to block you from .. If you are sick of being locked out and doors shut in your face.. If my people that are called by name will seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, I will heal the land… Lift up your voice like you are ready to break into another level of praise, a greater level of finances, a greater job… If you don’t want to break and enter into another season don’t pray with us…. This is not the Sunday for you to shout, this is the Sunday for you to lift up your voice like you really need something from God…. I dare you… When you lift up your voice you are giving God permission to enter into your children… When you lift up your voice you are giving God permission to break this that and the other… You are giving him permission to access your doctors reports… Hallelujah.. He was just waiting on your OK… He just needs you to lift up your voice… Hallelujah… Praise his Holy Name… He said, “I want to do it, I want permission” All he needed you to do is open up your mouth and began to talk to him.. The devil wanted you to resign… The prayers of the righteous availeth much.. All I needed you to do is open up your mouth…


Song selection..Play Welcome in this place..

prayer: God you access to every room in our house… We give you access to our secret stuff we have been hiding.. We give you the stuff we are embarrassed about.. Today Lord will give you over the things we have been holding on to for years.. We give over depression to you… Now by Faith that you have permission and you are in agreement, I dare you to just give thanks unto God….

“Success” – Day 3 Lenten Season….


Joshua 1:8(KJV)

 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success”

“George Washington-Carver”

George Washington-Carver

 Raised on the farm, George Washington-Carver began to create his own medicines and had been known as the “Plant Doctor”. George Washington Carver, in his early life, had fallen in love with Mother Nature. Growing up he received an excellent high school education and made many attempts to apply to a lot of University’s. He was accepted to Simpson College in Iowa. He was more interested in science and agriculture, so he transferred to what is now, Iowa State University. In 1894, he distinguished himself in school, and upon graduation received an offer to work at the University. Carver was the first colored man to graduate as an honor student.  Later on in the years, Carver discovered 325 different ways to use peanuts in everything from cooking oil to printers’ ink.  He later discovered 300 products that were made from the Lowly Plant. With many developments and products, George Washington Carver continued to work with peanuts, sweet potatoes and pecans. Because of George Washington Carver’s inventions and discoveries, peanuts became a 200 million dollar industry and a major product in Alabama. He was honored, praised, and loved for all of his accomplishments. Carver inspired many with his quote, “Where there is no vision, there is no hope.”

April 8, 2012 New BeginningsPrinciple of Lent:

Lent is a special sacred season of separation/consecration between Ash Wednesday
and Easter Sunday (this year Feb 22 – April 8). The 40 days of Lent are symbolic and
strategically significant in the Bible. The number 40 is used by God to represent a period
of testing, trial, probation, or judgment and ends with a period of restoration, revival
or renewal. The rain in Noah’s day fell for 40 days and 40 nights, Moses was on the
mountain 40 days and 40 nights, the spies searched Canaan for 40 days, the Israelites
wandered 40 years, Elijah ate one meal for 40 days, Jesus fasted in the wilderness for 40
days and was seen on the earth for 40 days after His crucifixion.
By observing Lent, we follow Jesus into the wilderness, resist temptation, pray,
and proceed to Jerusalem and the cross on Good Friday which then culminates in
resurrection on Easter Sunday. This most sacred season on the Church calendar is marked
by repentance, intercession, service, giving and self denial. For so many, Lent is a
moment to give up things we cherish in exchange for prayer, fasting, acts of mercy, and
meditation on the Word of God.

Power of Prayer:
When nations needed healing they prayed. When families needed reconciliation they
prayed. When churches needed revival they prayed. Everything we do as individuals,
church, or nation should be birthed in prayer. Jesus the Son of God was devoted to prayer
and He put priority to prayer than anything else. “One of those days Jesus went out to
a mountainside to pray, and spent the night praying to God.” Luke 6:12. He frequently
withdrew to the wilderness and mountain sides to pray. Prayer was not just Jesus’ habit
but in times of emergency, He resorted to prayer. When tempted, he prayed. When lied
upon, He prayed. During his most trying hour when he was about to be crucified, He
found time to pray. Before He gave up the ghost, He prayed. Today, He seats at the
right hand of God the Father still praying for you. His prayer life was so powerful and
impactful that the disciples said, “Teach us how to pray.” Nations need our prayers,
Individuals need our prayers, families need our prayers, the sick need our prayers,
governments needs our prayers, the lost need our prayers and the needy need our prayers.
Practical Ways to Help:
• Choose to fast from a particular pleasure: Food or TV or Social Media or Internet
or People.
• Join our daily Church-wide Online Blogs expounding on Prayer Items at
• Corporate Prayer every Sunday Morning from 7:00am – 7:30am.
• Attend Intercessors 1 hour of Power / Prayer Clinic every Saturday from 10am –
11am at the Family Life Center (1505 Eutaw Pl, Baltimore MD)
• Read through the Gospels between now and Easter.
• If you don’t already journal, begin now. Reflect on your readings, prayers and
• Make a list of people with whom you need to be reconciled. Pray for them and let
Jesus guide you in your thinking and feeling toward them.
