Prayer For Womens Reproductive Systems

I Have been praying for Women all over the world in the Body of Christ for healing in their reproductive Systems.  Just in my local body alone I see cases and cases of women dealing with problems leading to cancer if not fixed and cancers in the womens reproductive systems.  Since I am in school To be a Medical Assistant, I have recenly been learing about the The body, this has been after I started my prayer.  I am now learning about the Womens Reproductive System and I have been really looking at it detailed and being mindful so that I can pray over those areas.  God gave us our reproductive systems for good but the enemy has tried to turn it around for bad.  But how many know that God can turn that back around for good!  I am really passionate about this God has really placed it in my heart.  My spirit was overwhelmed everytime I hear in the congergation or on Christian Tv of all the problem the Women in the Body of Christ is facing in the reproductive system.  He gave us that system to have children to be fruitful and multiply! Genesis  I am taking a stand against the enemy in prayer about this and God will prevail!  I have been truely crying out to God and I believe that atleast 1,000 women have been healed as of today.  I believe that as women where in the hospitals to go through surgery at the time of prayer another Ultrasound was done and they found NOTHING!!! I believe it with all my heart.  I also believe that as upcoming appointments are facing what they saw before they will see no more!  That women that are having trouble having children will soon get pregnant, women that have been told that they cannot bare children will.  I have called out The states  Arizona, Kansas, Washington New York, Florida, New England, and a few more.  I don't know why I called those states out in prayer that day but I did and I believe that God is working in those areas and have healed and will be moving more.  I plead that if you are having any problems in your reproductive system this includes ovaries, uterus, cervix.  please send me an e-mail with the problem you are having in your reproductive system and I will pray for you everyday and petition God on your behalf for your healing.  We want to petition God that nothing is taken out that he orginally put in us for good!  I am excited with what God will be doing for us when we prayer.  If we have prayer warriors other than myself here on the site please feel free to keep the Prayer Women's Reproductive Systems and healing of the areas that are associtate with them.  We have to attact these things as a body and as Women of God.  It is time for the women in the body to be healed of these issues.    For one month we will attact this in prayer and join me!  I look foward to your prayer request.

God Bless, Toccara

God is Moving!

I taked to an awesome woman last night sharing the new sitewith her and be began to talk.  Her strength is unbelieveable!  She has been through so much some I know of and some I don't really know about.  To have the faith as she does although life is so challenging physically for her keeps me humble and keep things in perspective.  I wanted to just acknowlede her tonight and if she visit's the site I want to say that God is on your side, that he loves you very much.  He looks forward to your passion for him every morning.  The fact that you think of how you can serve him everyday you wake up you are blessed and highly favored.  I kept you in prayer after speaking with you and he want's to make you feel the same as he created you in your mother's womb.  He knows that you depend on him with every breath that you take and he is a rewarder!   He is going to heal wherever you are broken, he is going to fill the empty spaces with his unchaning love.  God is working right now to make you whole.  Because of your faithfulness and your love for him he is waiting for the right time to give you the desires of your heart.  He promised them to you and I and it is up to us when he gives us those desires but yours is on its way in the name of Jesus!  I Decree and Declare that this word is established in the name of Jesus.  You will be able to give a testimony one day right here in this ministy to what I have spoken.  I believe it with every fiber of my being that he is working on it for you!!!! Your breakthrough!  This is what this ministry is about.  Healing and Restoration.



Please ladies if you have anything you need lifted in prayer please send me your prayer request.  I spend an hour daily just lifting up the prayers of those who ask me to keep them in prayer and interceeding when God prompts me to pray for someone.  When he wake me up in the middle of the night to pray I am up no matter the time, when the Holy Spirit prompt me to pray I am obedient to the spirit of God.  It gives me great joy to pray for the people of God!  See our prayer request section to send in your prayer.

God Rescues From Trouble

"I will be with him in trouble
I will rescue him."
Psalm 91:15

It is so amazing how God makes this promise to us with knowing all the situations we will ever go through.  This is a promise to those that love him.  God is not limited to our situations that seem to be impossible to us.  That may be a fact to us but we serve a God that is not limited.  Our thoughts, and actions are limited but our God is not!  We sere an Unlimited God!  We can't cofine God to our limitations but let him be the one who is able to go outside of our limitations to help us in our trouble.  He will resue you!  This is a promise.  We just let him do it his way.  My favorite Teacher I love to hear preach the word of God is Joyce Meyer she said during a conference that she held here in Florida that God is going to help you in your trails in one of two ways:
 #1  He will either take it completely away from you at once where you won't have to deal with it again.
or
#2 He will give you the grace to go throught it to see it all the way throught to the end.  But the key is that he is the one that chooses which one he will do.  We often want to make the decision which one we want but the fact of the matter is that it is his choice.  Of course we would love for him to take every single problem away right away but if we have the mind of Christ, the mind of God will that be what is best for us?  Will we be taken to another level in him if he just took it right away the minute it came along?  I have to tell you that if I would not have gone through some of the things that were bad that Idid go through I would not be doing what I am doing right now.  I would not be choosing to sever God through this online ministry, I would not be teaching bible studies at church and at nursing homes.  I would not have the desires I have to please God.  Think of all the good things that came out of your trials.  There is no testimony with out a trial.  Take heart to this scripture Isaiah 43:2
"When you pass through the waters I will be with you; and through the rivers, they will not overflow you.  When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched, nor will the flame burn you.
Isn't this so awesome!

When I say I am A Christian

A woman's heart should be so hidden in christ that a man should have to seek him first to find her.  When I say... I am a christian, I'm not shouting " I'm Clean livin."
I'm whispering " I was lost , now I'm found and forgiven."  When I say... I am a christian I don't speak of this with pride.  I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.  When I say... that I am a christian I am not trying to be strong. I'm professing that I'm weak and need his strenght to carry on.  When I say... I am a christian I'm not bragging of success.  I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.  When I say... I am a christian I am not claiming to be perfect.  My flaws are far too visible but, God believe I am worth it. When I say...I am a christian I still feel the sting of pain.  I have my share of headaches so I call upon his name.  When I say...I am a christian I am not holier than thou; I;m just a simple sinner who recieved God's good grace somehow!

Have a Happy Expecting Sunday!

I hope that everyone has a wonderful Sunday! It is actually midnight and I am up checking on the site and checking for prayer request and things of that nature.  I see you from Miami Florida visiting us at this hour!  I pray that something has blessed you along the way while you are here.  I am keeping all 5 of my new members in prayer before I go to bed and if you attend church on Sunday's go expecting from God.  Yes it is okay to expect from God!  Walk through those doors expecting that he has something just for you! I know he has something just for me.  While I am battling my temptations, trial, and tribulations I am expecting that God is going to give me a word, or heal that are at which I am broken.  He can do it because he is God!  I have learned to go expecting each Sunday and guess what?  I receive every time. Sometimes it is a word, sometimes he heals an area in my life, sometimes I get blessed by praise and worship, sometimes it is conviction of where I am falling short.  But what ever it is I receive because I am expecting to!  Expect a miracle! Expect a breakthrough! Expect the Almighty, the great  I am to show up! He does every time.  When we read the new testament and read about when Jesus went throughout all Galilee healing people.  A lot of them were expecting him to heal them because they truly believed he was the Messiah!  When they went to go where Jesus was they were expecting to be healed.  We should do the same.  If Jesus healed both people who believed and those that did not believe what do you think he will do for you and you are his follower!  Pray always confess your sins and ask for forgiveness of sin because this keeps our lines of communication open.  Rebuke and cast out whatever the enemy is trying to do to you in the name of Jesus and wait and see what God will do for you!  He is Jehovah God, He is Jehovah Nissi, He is Jehovah Jireh...He is the Great I am, he is "IAM" as he told Moses Exodus 3:14-15  He is whatever you need him to be in order for him to began a good and perfect work in you!  He wont stop until you are shaped and molded into his image.  I love you all and I truly do pray that you are blessed!

Daily Devotional January 28th

Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us Hebrews 12:1

Weight holds us down, keep us from moving at the pace we would normally go without it.  The race of faith is one that keeps going with or without us.  God is going to get his work done with us or without us.  But oh how lovely it is to be used by God, to be included in his plans for the new heaven and new earth.  It is great to make it in but do we want to just make it in or do we want to get all the rewards we can get from our Heavenly Father?  So today let do our very best to lay aside those things that may keeps us from giving our best prayer offering, our best time in service, our best thoughts, our best efforts. 

I believe that if we can do that right now once we read this devotional we will truely be blessed by it.  I came up with this devotional today because it is something that I am working on right now as I share it with you and we together as a body of women in christ can accomplish this today.  We still have time left today so let's do we can do it ladies!

Hugs, Toccara

The Trouble With Worry Teaching




The Trouble With Worry

Written By Toccara Feliciano 2011


The Bible speaks about worry, In today's world there are so many things that go that is the cause of worry.  Jobs, health care, health problems, rebellious children, finances, and much more.  These things are our everyday focus and if one of these areas are not right we tend to get all bent out of shape.  I remember how when I first became sick from being overdosed with a prescription medicine I was so worried because my body was doing things that it had never done before.  I did not know what was going on.  I was crying panicking and everything else.  I remember waking up day after day for about 2weeks feeling like crap each day and it seem to have gotten worse each day.

I went to the doctor's to let them know what I was feeling and what my body was doing and they marked it down but assured me that the medicine will leave my body soon.  I thought I was dying at one point, I  thought I was not going to live to see my children, everyday I went to bed kissing them as it was my last night to see them. I was crying, crying out to God asking him to take it all away!  I starting getting heart palpitations, anxiety, and just panicking!  My father who is a pastor had to talk me back into my senses and tell me stop worrying nothing is going to happen to you, you are going to see your kids grow up and this is a trick of the enemy!  He then finished the statement with and even if there is something wrong there is nothing you can do about all that by worrying!  I thought to myself what did he just say?  Did he just say that me worrying about what I am going through is not going to help me?  I was sort of in shock.  When you are in this type of situation Christian folk should be telling me I am going to be fine and everything is going to be alright, Right?

Absolutely NOT!!!  He told me I needed to align my mind back up with the word of God.  That sounded a little more reasonable.  I began to look up all the scriptures about worry and study then deeply.  The first Scripture I read was the most important and simplified one that I could begin to meditate on.

Matthew 6:25-34
And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

We have to really take this scripture to heart and hold onto it as if it is the only thing that will save our life.  IF God will take care of Birds and flowers of the field how much more will he do for us?  When he create man he created us to be rulers over the world.  Adam was in charge of everything in the Garden of Eden and God created him with the intentions that he RULE!  If he take care of flowers where they don't have to do anything but just sprout up and be flowers! Flowers can't serve God, nor can they praise him, or Worship him.  They can't love him and trust in him and most importantly they can't Spread the Good News to all the world.  But we Can!  So if we can do all those things why would not he take care of us!  His Children who love and obey him.

So what is the Trouble with Worry?

1. Your are showing God that you do not trust him, It is a lack of Faith
When I found out that worry is actually telling God I don't trust him to take care of me, I got on the right track quick!  If he is telling us not to worry because he will take care of us and we do the opposite we are telling him that what he is saying is not good enough.
2. You stop God from doing his work.
when God is trying to work your problems out for you in the spirit realm and you are worrying, having fear, and doubt he can't  operate in the midst of that!  The devil puts fear and doubt in us so when he is actually being allowed to operate God has to stop working step back and wait until you came back on his game field then he will be able to finish the Good work he started in you.
3. You are ruining your health.
God says in his word that his plan and thoughts of us are good, to succeed and to prosper. Jer 29:11
If those are his plan and and we are worrying then we are not going to be in good health.  We can't worry, be in fear and doubt and still be in good health.  When I was worrying about what my body was going through from the medicine I was taking after it was subsiding I was still worried and therefore I started getting palpation's because I was stressed and worried, I felt anxiety because of worry.  I could not sleep, therefore no energy, tired and not focused.  But once I started to focus on other scriptures like Jer 29:11 I could sleep because although I was feeling like crap, my creator was having good thoughts about me, he was continuing his plan for me to be successful!  Knowing what he was thinking took my thoughts off of what  I was thinking because I know I have no power to change anything it is all him.  He goes on to say in Matthew that I can't even change one hair on my head or add a single day to my life!  So My sisters in Christ why worry about things we can't change.  Trust him sisters. In proverbs 3:5-6 says to trust in the lord with all our hearts and lean not on our own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge him and he will direct your paths.  If today you are worrying about things that are going on in your life I encourage you to stop and read what God has to say about what you are going through.  I learned from a great teacher that he will do one of two things:  Take it all away at once where you wont have to deal with it anymore or give you the grace to go through it.  But it is his decison what he will do.  But while you are waiting trust him! He is sure enough faithful!

If you need prayer about worry please go to the prayer request section and let me know and I will pray for you concering your worry, it is not of God and we need to pray that you are set free from the bondage of fear, worry and doubt.

I pray that that this message blesses you!

My Testimony

I grew up in Flordia in a single parent home.  I lived with my mom and two brothers.  My mom believed in God and used to always tell us about the book of Revelation SOme point in my child hood when I was about 10 years old, my mom got on drugs really bad.  My brothers and I suffered a lot.  we did not have any food to eat most of the time and we had to depend on the neighborhood candy man who ran it out of his home to give us free food to eat so that we could have a meal.  My mom would straighten up a little bit but soon would go back to the same things.  It would only get worese and We went from having no food to the water bill not being paid, to no lights.  My brothers and I would walk through the grave yards and fill up jugs of water to use.  Then if we had lights we would heat up the cold water to use to bathe and things like that. We would eat cereal with water and wear summer clothes in the winter time.  It was a tough time.  As the only girl I suffered a lot and ofter wondered why?  I would be afraid because all my mothers drug friends were mostly male and they would be in and out of the house and some even touch me in ways they shouldn't and spoke to me in ways that were not the way they should speak to a child.  I often locked myself in my room and wrote a lot in journals and began to read the bible a lot.  I started getting myself up for church and walking to the nearby church.  I would go to sunday school and to this event called awana's on Wednesday nights.  I started to learn more about God.  I often prayed about my situation and wondered why I was going through what I was going through.  My troubles lasted for years and a big blow out happened when I failed the eighth grade due to my home situation and I my mother packed her bags to leave us by ourselves.  We did not know what to do.  My brothers often looked to me because I basically took care of them when my mother would be gone for three and four days at a time and I would basically be their mother.  So I went to live with my grandmother and things got better.  I had to learn how to eat again because I was so used to not eating that I could go all day without food.  My grandmother had to show me how to be a kid and not like a parent.  I was 15 when I went to live with my grandmother and I was able to go to high school make friends, play sports, participate in extra curricular activites and learn scrapbooking something I am passionate about today.  I got to be 17 years old when I really starting seeking God and noticing that even though I got my childhood back there was a void that was missing in my heart.  I knew God needed to be there.  My dad who came off of a drug habbit he had during the same years as my mom did, starting coming around and sharing the love of God with me.  My uncle visited my grandmother and me one day from out of town and I started to talk to him about my feelings and how I felt inside and where did God fit in.  We talked for hours and a few days later I gave myself to Christ!  All those years of wondeing why I had to go through those things and being afraid that I would one day turn out just as my mother was I was confident that I went through those things for a reason.  Now I have my own children, my own husband, my own life, my own calling in life that God has given me, I see how that My bad life then is my testimony now!  This online ministry I am starting and the new Teen/young adult ministry I am starting Locally at my church is what it is all about.  I can now share what I have endured and share with teens and young adults that you can make it!  I have a great Husband, three beautiful children, I love God and he is starting to do great things with my life, I am now starting a ministry to help other women, and I am putting together a ministry for teens. To help them cope with the issues they may be facing in high school and at home like I did,   I am in school to be a medical assistant, I have an online shop where I sell my handmade crafts, and all with the love of Christ in me!  All that I have and all that I am is because of him and I am so thankful that I belong to him.  I still make mistakes today and I am nowhere near perfect, but I have the power through him to overcome!  It is all about overcoming and getting beauty from ashes!  I pray that this testimony has helped someone know that they are not alone in trials, God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all we can ever ask or think! If he did it for me he can do it for you!
God Bless!

Welcome Beautiful Awakening Ministry


Welcome to Beautiful Awakening blog site.  I have been so blessed to have this site.  This blog is created on the purpose of God's grace and mercy upon my life.  The Holy Spirit has been ministering to me on the calling he has placed on my life.  He has called me particularly to reach Young Women!  Women who have reached an age of trying to find themselves and find out who they are.  God has called me to have a minisrty for women to empower and to encourage in their walk with God.  Some may not even know God or is searching.  I believe that it was no accident why you ended up here today!  This ministry has been ordained to me and God has set such a time as this for this sort of minisrty to take place.  I never thought that this is where I would be starting but I am here to let God have his way!

Vision:  The Vision here at Beautiful Awakening is Healing and Restoration! Also to have a Young Women Ministry Locally and Through the World Wide Web!  ( That is You here that become a part of this blog site ministry)!

HEALING:   We want to be healed!  God wants to heal us spiritually and Physically!  But here we want God to heal you spiritually! First!  We are Spiritually sick before we come to God and in order to get well we have to be healed with the power of God!  We have to Let him do his job in taking care of those things that are out of our control.  The bible says in Genesis that Adam and Eve had fellowship with God and Genesis 3:8.  When Adam and Eve sinned they became not only physically sick where they would now one day dieGenesis 3:22 but they also became spirtually sick and God seperated them from himself and kick them out of the garden of Eden. Genesis 3:23.   So just like our ancestors Adam and Eve we are now Spiritually sick and are in need for a savior.  Jesus Christ, God's only son has come to give us life  He is here to see us through this life and that we overcome it until the day of his return!

RESTORATION: We want to restore you back to the person God orginally created you to be.  Because of the fall  we have been seperate from God and are sinful in his eyes. Romans 3:23. Not some but all! But there is good news God sent his only son that we may have life and have it more abundantly. John10:10.  For some this may be overwhelming but we are here to see that you are walked thorugh this process!  I am excited about this walk and I am praying for all who take part in this ministry and Please feel free to ask questions here in the comments sections of the post if you have questions, Please leave prayer requests I will pray over each one and believe God with you for your Miracles!

Site Ministry Entails:  Weekly Teachings, Daily Devotionals, Prayer Requests,  The Beautiful Awakening Journal where the Journaling Questions will center around Questions about Yourself and getting to know yourself better!  Projects!!!  These projects will Lift up God and whatever talents you have we want to help you descove those talents and if you know your talent already it will help you to center your talent around God.  He gave us all talents and he gave them to us for his glory so here we will help you to show thanks for the talents God has given you.  I used to to try to fit God into my talents but the Holy Spirit Convicted me on this and told me I need to fit my talents into God's big plan.  This is one of the main purpose I moved on this opportunity to have this online Ministry!  I was trying to fit God into my takent of Crafting but If I focused on Him I would be able to be used more and more effectively in my takents if I did it his way!

This Minisrty will be a place where we will Learn about The Word of God, learn what God wants from us, and most importantly HOW DO WE DO THESE THINGS!!!  God called me to teach because I have a passion for learning.  I have been to churches where I got a good sermon but I did not know how was I to apply the things that they were saying?  I did not know how to do these things how was I to do what the pastor said God want me to do?  So by the Power of the Holy Spirit he gives me the gift to teach to make sense of the teaching the messages that we hear.  You will always get life application in a teaching, how to better yourself.  I believe that you will be truely blessed by this Ministry and what we will be doing here.  We are gettting started and I know that God will do great things in each of our lives here!  I have become a woman of prayer and I am believing God for Signs Wonders and Miracles in your lives.  I pray each day, each week you visit us you will be changed each day by the word of God.  The bible says that the word of God is sharper than any two edged sword Hebrews 4:12.  So I know according to the bible it is sharper than the sword of Depression, it is sharper than the sword of Fear, it is sharper than the sword of Guilt, It is sharper than the Sword of Worry....So know that God is for you! If God is for you who can be against you. Romans 8:31.  The bible says in Psalms that in God I trust; I shall not be afraid, what can man do to me? Psalm 56:11  So if we have the Almighty with us, if we trust in him  we should not be afraid.   Nothing can seperate us from the love of God Romans 8:39.  So be encouraged my sisters!!!!!  God is for us!
