Faith to Speak to the Storms

By Patrick Hawthorne

Can we really use our faith to speak to the weather?  Can we exercise our authority in Christ Jesus to command the physical storms to do no harm to our dwelling place?  I’m here to tell you that you can and I do.  I have been doing this for several years and my faith has grown exponentially in this area as well as in other areas.

Just the past week, we had some severe storms strike the Arklatex area.  This is the area that covers portions of Arkansa, Louisiana, and Texas.  As the storm approached my home town around the Blanchard area I spoke and said, “I receive the rain, but command the storms to flee, in the mighty name of Jesus.”

As the storm approached my home area I decided to take a picture of the radar image.

See the storm as it approaches Shreveport. I live just to the north around the Blanchard area .

Now, watch as the storm starts splitting apart in the area where I live.

Unfortunately, I don’t have a third picture that shows the storm after it passed my home. The red and the purple closed back on itself, once again forming a solid wall.

You can choose to believe me or not.  It matters little to me.  I just know that I have been exercising this authority for several years and what I’m showing in the picture has become such a commonality for me that I’m able to walk in total peace during the midst of the storms.  What’s more, I’m learning to develop this same faith when I pray for the needs of others.  Our Heavenly Father is so very wonderful.  Be blessed

For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be removed, and be cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he said shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he said.

Mark 11:23

    I said some prayers over that storm myself.

    Also, a question. How close to Minden are you?

    Amen, Patrick. I had the same experience last year. Was heading toward Minneapolis and there were tornado warnings going off in the general area I was driving through. I looked straight at the dark clouds in the distance and told them to dissipate in Jesus’ name. I made it to my destination and later heard on the weather report that the storms seems to stay west of I-35 (I was East of it) and then they just fizzled out! That’s one incident where I saw a direct correlation to my prayers.

    I don’t know how exactly it works, but if I hear of a storm that could potentially kill people and cause a lot of damage, I pray against it in Jesus’ name!

    What I’m about to reveal may not sound so crazy to you then, I haven’t told anyone before and now here I am telling the internet 🙂 . When we get swarms of flies in the house I cast them out the window in Jesus’ name (using arm movements too) and they leave. (sorta like mini demons maybe?)
