Prayer Warriors


It Is Written, Romans 8:26, likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
At one time or another, you may have heard the term prayer warrior, and wondered what it meant. In simple terms, prayer warriors are dedicated to God's Word, and apply everything they know to praying for others.
These warriors spend time studying the Word of God, because as it says in 1 John 5:14-15, now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him. The Bible is the only place to discover what the will of God is.
Without a doubt, praying in the Spirit for others, is the most powerful prayer there is. We may not know what to pray, but the Holy Spirit prays the perfect prayer through us. It is in tune with our Father, every time.
A prayer of petition is a written request to God for something in particular. Scriptures  related to the request are quoted, and the request is specific and detailed. When it is completed, two or more people read it out loud, agree, and believe.
Warriors spend hours each day, and pray as they are led by the Holy Spirit. All prayers are ended with Thanksgiving to our Father for the results. We claim and receive them as we pray. God bless you and your family. Praise the Lord!

Pray / Praise the Way Ahead


It Is Written, Psalm 34:4, I sought the Lord and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.
Have you ever been concerned about the situation in the world today? How about your future in your personal life? Do you worry, or are you at peace?
If you have a personal relationship with Jesus, you have nothing to fear. You know that you are with God, and God is with you.
If you do not have a personal relationship with Jesus, everything is dark and scary. satan could be running wild in your life, and your fears are becoming your reality.
Consider this. Everything that is happening, can in fact be a wake-up call. satan will tell you that God is punishing you for who you are, or things you did. It is a lie. He's trying to deceive you, to keep you from going to Jesus.
You can determine your future. Turn to Jesus, and open your heart. Listen for His voice, and read His instruction book, the Bible, it's all there. satan cannot control your life, if you give your life to the Lord.
As far as the world situation goes, remember this. The children of Israel were not touched by the plagues that devastated Egypt in the days of Moses. God bless you and your family. Praise The Lord!

God, The Ultimate Parent


It Is Written, Psalm 103:13, as a father pities his children, so the Lord pities those who fear Him.
It is difficult for many people to accept the idea that God is our father, in every sense of the word.
To get a better idea about how God feels about us, try looking at it from a different perspective. Instead of comparing God the father, to our earthly father, look at it as your relationship to your children.
Any good parent wants the best for their children. You teach them right from wrong, and what it takes to be a good person. When they hurt, you hurt even more, because you love them.
A parent is prepared to make any sacrifice for the benefit of their children. You guide them in the way they should go, and to keep them from making mistakes.
In spite of all your efforts, the children do not listen, and end up learning the hard way. It doesn't  matter what they do, you still love them and forgive them.
So you have to ask yourself, if our creator gave His only son to save us, and the Holy Spirit to guide us, how much more of a parent is He to us?
Just as we appreciate our children's love for us, God our father, appreciates our love for Him. God bless you and your family. Praise The Lord!

God Or Problem?


It Is Written, Proverbs 12:25, anxiety in the heart of man causes depression, but a good word makes it glad.
You cannot expect to live life with no problems. It is how you handle these problems that makes the difference. Do you accept them, or reject them?
Here is a hint that really helps, but you must make the choice to follow it. It all boils down to focus. If you focus on a problem, it seems to grow. Before you know it, the problem is being fed by your attention to it.
If you are a regular reader of these blogs, you have heard the quote from 1 Peter 5: 7, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. Unfortunately, most people do not believe that this is the truth. These are not just words, they are the truth.
Start out knowing the fact that God is bigger than any problem you may have. Make the choice to believe. No matter what you see, if you start to doubt, re focus on the love and power of God. Just as focusing on the problem makes the problem grow, focusing on God and His power, makes the problem go away. If you doubt that, try it on a small problem, and you may get the shock of your life, I guarantee it.
As with anything in life, you get what you focus on, even though 99% of the time you don't realize that is what you're doing. God bless you and your family. Praise the Lord!

Faith-Doing Something


Is Written, Romans 15:13, now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.
Many people think that just stepping out in faith, guarantees success. That is true to a point. Let me explain.
I speak now from personal experience and what I learned the hard way. There are some important things to consider. I have listed the most common mistakes.
Make sure it is God telling you what to do, and not your own feelings taking over. If you have doubts check His Word the Bible. The Bible says, whatever we ask in Jesus name, according to the Word of God, in faith, we shall receive. Stand by your prayer and God's Word no matter how things look.
God rearranges all the circumstances that must come together to answer your prayer. That being the case, timing is critical, and affects whatever it is we are praying about.
If we wait on God instead of just jumping ahead of God's timing, we will succeed, because all of the pieces will then be in place. Pray, receive, believe, and the most important, wait for God. You will know the right time, because what seemed impossible, will come about so easy, that you will be shocked. God bless you and your family. Praise the Lord!

The Two Sides of Patience


It Is Written, 2 Peter 3:9, the Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness; but is long-suffering toward us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
If you talk to just about anyone about prayer, they will probably tell you that God is super slow to answer prayer. Prayers aren't magic. If a prayer is made with faith and a clean heart, God always hears. If the prayer is according to His Word, it is answered.
If all of this is true, which it is, why does God take so long? One reason it takes a long time in our eyes, is our concept of time is not God's concept of time. Time is nothing to God. Time is a human thing.
Another reason for the apparent slowness is, God is answering millions of prayers. God has to manipulate circumstances for each person, in order for each person to receive God's best.
Suppose we apply the same expectations to ourselves, as we apply to God. How long does God have to wait in order for us to do what He expects of us? God has unlimited patience toward us. He doesn't complain about us, or our slowness to act, so why do we dare to complain about Him?
I believe that the closer we are to God, the fewer things He must arrange to answer our prayers, because we are following him to some extent in the first place ,and that includes His plan. Think about that. God bless you and your family. Praise the Lord!

Blessing Or Complaint




It Is Written, 1 Thessalonians 5:18, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
The question of blessing or complaint, is answered by how you look at it. You may be surprised. Here are a few examples of what I mean.
Physical therapy is regarded by many who do it, as a pain in the you know what, even though they know that it helps their recovery. They still complain. They don't recognize it as a blessing, and don't think about thanking God that they are able to do it.
Many people in the world, probably a couple of billion, are unable to take therapy they need, because of severe physical limitations, or inability to take advantage of it because of financial reasons.
Years ago I was unhappy with the car that I was driving. It was temperamental, and old. One day I was driving to work in below zero weather. As I was passing a bus stop, in my warm comfortable car, I noticed dozens of people freezing while waiting for a bus. At that point, I realized how blessed I was, in my warm car. That put and end to my complaining about that.
Any time many of us feels we have something to complain about, we should think about how many people would call our complaint, a blessing. I think we all realize that when we complain about something, we are basically telling God that He is not taking care of us in the way we expect. That my friends, would probably be called a sin.
The best thing we can do to make ourselves feel much better, and not offend God, is to stop our complaining and realize there are dozens of blessings every day that we overlook. Remember this also,  but for the grace and favor of God, we could be the other guy. God bless you and your family. Praise the Lord!

Taking Things For Granted


It Is Written, Philippians 4:19, but my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
Most people, including Christians, often take things for granted without even realizing it. Why do you suppose that is? There is no one answer.
We are so used to things happening automatically, that we give little or no thought to the fact that they are blessings. We are so spoiled, by God's grace, that when something we expect doesn't happen the way we expect, we usually get angry, and disappointed.
Suppose that you couldn't breathe all of a sudden. Imagine getting up in the morning and you couldn't see. If you thought about all these things, you can make a list that would shock you. It is at this point that most of us realize that we have overlooked these blessings, and the fact that they are from God.
It is time we stopped taking God for granted, and start appreciating His blessings. He does not owe us anything, we owe Him far more than we can hope to repay. Thanking God every day for every single thing, would take hours. Here is a simple solution. Get a notebook, and every day write down one thing, and sincerely thank God for that blessing.
If you write about one blessing each day, you will end up with hundreds over time. Remember, it is by God's grace that we are able to get up in the morning, and see another sunshine. God bless you and your family.
