Even If…

In 1 Peter 5:6-11(ESV), the Bible states: Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world. And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, […]

CANADA (Referring to the article, “Have a Steadfast Mind on God’s Word”) At our CKI meeting today, we were rejoicing over this amazing article and praying over the truth it shared. God is so faithful! (Referring to, “Covenant Keeping 201—The Problem with Our Tongue” by Carolyn Johnson) Thanks, Carolyn, for your great article. Another good resource I like is a book simply entitled, The Tongue: A Creative Force by Charles Caps. Thank you so much for all you do for covenant keepers. God Bless You! USA AZ: (Referring to, “Have a Steadfast Mind on God’s Word” article) What a testimony […]

ENJOYING THE JOURNEY – Part 1

I would like to share some of the things I have learned on my Covenant Keeping journey… WHEN I GOT THE BAD NEWS… During a meeting of the Smyrna, GA group, a gentleman started his story with, “When I got the bad news…,” at which time all in attendance broke into laughter because we, too, so well-remembered that moment in our lives! No one can possibly understand that devastation and mourning without experiencing it. We who have walked through it can recall, in great detail, the loss of our beloved spouse and all that the loss involved. The mourning seemed […]

Hope – Part 2

  • February 12, 2019

This is the second installment from the book Hope by Marilyn Conrad   HOPE OR DEFEAT? Life can be tough and painful. God did not promise that we would never have challenges or difficult times to go through. When these times come we find out what is on the inside of us. Do we choose to grow better or get bitter? Do we choose to speak the Word over our situations or let our situations overcome us? Do we choose to believe what God says or do we believe the lies of the enemy of our souls? Do we choose […]

Hope – Part 1

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • February 7, 2019

The Lord has ministered to me that covenant keepers need encouragement, and He impressed upon me to share with you about hope. Since beginning to stand for our marriages, we have all had someone say to us, at one time or another, “Don’t get your hopes up,” or “You don’t get anything by hoping.” God’s Word encourages just the opposite; He wants us to get our hopes up. In fact, the Word puts prime importance on hope. Hope is the first step in marriage healing. Hebrews 11:1 says, “Faith is the substance of things hoped for.” Without hope, we have […]

Obedience Is Greater Than Sacrifice

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • January 29, 2019

“Ouch, Hallelujah!” is a good statement to make when convicted by Holy Spirit. I don’t enjoy it, but I love the benefits reaped from being obedient when it occurs. The key is to respond quickly and decisively. My husband has been visiting me on a regular basis for a while. I always look forward to his visits and often prepare dinner for us to share. On one such visit not too long ago, I almost missed an opportunity to see God move. I expected a long visit, so I was surprised when I received a text from my husband saying […]

Another Prayer Warrior Joins the Heavenly Chorus

  • January 22, 2019

My first remembrance of Helen Turner was when she joined my CKI group in Tulsa. Helen taught school with Joyce Hasty and as they became friends Joyce realized that Helen was a covenant keeper, so she began attending my Monday night CK meetings with Joyce. Helen had one of the most unusual sounding prayer languages I had ever heard. I remember talking with Marilyn Conrad about it and she assured me that it was the real thing. The sound of Helen’s prayer language really created problems until one day a missionary visiting Victory Church told Helen that he understood her […]

A Crown for a Hat

Joyce Hasty has graduated to heaven. This is a great loss to our CKI family and she will be greatly missed. Joyce joined my CKI group early in the 80s and remained a friend until she died in December 2018. I was privileged to be the one who prayed with her the day she received her prayer language after a CKI meeting.  She was a faithful CKI meeting attendee and was often quite a character at the meetings. She always had something funny to tell us about her situation while being a quick learner of things to do or not […]

A Covenant Keeper Tradition Continues

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • September 4, 2018

Covenant Keepers will continue our annual tradition of taking Halloween back from Satan and making it a day of fasting and prayer for our nation, our homes, and our families. Yellow Ribbon Day is observed in and around the month of October and, instead of decorating with jack-o-lanterns, we tie yellow ribbons around trees, lampposts, or on doors as a symbol that the captives have been set free! It was in 1987 that we planned the first Yellow Ribbon Day. Marilyn Conrad had been in prayer about the idea and one evening she turned on the television to watch 700 […]

Living

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • August 27, 2018

This is more than just mere existence. It is taking what you have and learning how to make the most of it. It is breathing in what is around you and appreciating every minute of it. Living is seeing its Author and knowing all things work together for good to them who love Him. Living is having both ups and downs and knowing each are two sides of the same coin. Each has their purpose in developing character. Living can take what the world calls dirt and turn it into the potting soil of faith for greater things. It is […]
