The Lord may choose to lead us into purposes we now know not of. We may follow Him right into blessings we never thought of. Ready for that?
Key truths about sin as taught in the Bible.
Praying for the world to get better?
Per Bible prophecies: The world is not going to get “better” over these next few years. “Getting a better world” is a nice wish, but …that is not coming to reality on earth until AFTER the Rapture and after the subsequent world turmoil with the Antichrist, and after “the end” with Armageddon.
We pray because God cares, and He hears what we say. The beginning of prayer is the purifying of our spirit. All that self-talk we all engage our minds in throughout the day? “Talk it” to God. If I take my eyes off Jesus… I become unbalanced in my soul. I take refuge in God… There is no better way to deal with life. The number to call for repair in all areas is: P-R-A-Y-E-R
Make Self Talk… God Talk. It goes on and on and on
Speaking to God silently inside your mind: God-Talk… is praying to God without voicing it out loud. “Self Talk” and “God Talk”- He sees into your thoughts, your feelings, your intentions, your falseness or genuineness, your honesty or lies, what you really are inside of your mind and heart.”
Approach God with a true and sincere heart
Have you ever in your life “approached” God? God has spoken into this world through His Word, the Bible. We know God by reading/studying… the Bible. In it He informed us about Himself, long ago, and now, today, He informs us as we read it — that He is approachable. He is the One (in three: the divine Trinity). All other “gods” are not His equal, nor truly any “God”.
Run with endurance and active persistence the race that is set before us
“run with endurance and active persistence the race that is set before us” – Hebrews 12:1 All the runners run There are many ways to run a race. We can run to win, or we can unconsciously run to lose. Are you winning in your race? “seize the prize and make it yours!” The Christian […]
Have you “come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God”?
When you, in prayer, accept Jesus as your personal Savior — you have come to an awesome, almighty place of wonder and love.
When I find myself in times of trouble, I turn to Jesus
Just as His eye is on the sparrow, my God watches over me. (Luke 12:7) In times of trouble, such as with today’s events, Jesus is our answer. “Why worry, when you can pray.” Our “hope and confident expectation” at all times should be “committed and focused” on Jesus – in all that we are, […]
At your wit’s end
“On God my salvation and my glory rest; He is my rock of [unyielding] strength, my refuge is in God.” – Psalm 62:7 Amplified Bible (AMP) At your wit’s end these days, with all that life is throwing at you now? Are you at the end of your wit? Well, that’s not hard to do. […]
Our Father, who is in heaven
…Jesus’ model for prayer. Photo: Nabeel Qureshi 9 “Pray, then, [a]in this way: ‘Our Father, who is in heaven, [b]Hallowed be Your name. 10 ‘[c]Your kingdom come, Your [d]will be done On earth as it is in heaven. 11 ‘Give us this day our [e]daily bread. 12 ‘And forgive us our [f]debts, as we have forgiven […]
Romans 8:25-28. Hope in Christ
Romans 8:25-28 Amplified Bible (AMP) 25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait eagerly for it with patience and composure. Our Victory in Christ 26 In the same way the Spirit [comes to us and] helps us in our weakness. We do not know what prayer to offer or how to offer […]
God is available to all
God actually hears us. He answers us when we pray. He cared enough to come to earth. He cared enough to die on Calvary’s cross for us, so why would we doubt that He cares enough to answer our expressed need? Do not fear – God will hear.
All that self-talk we all engage our minds in throughout the day? We can direct it to conversations with God. That is just so totally awesome!
Pray like Jesus prayed
Jesus teaches us how to pray. He gave us a blueprint for how to build our prayers. Jesus showed us in one prayer — what an effective prayer will often have in it.
“…I have come in response to your words.” – Angel Gabriel; Daniel 10:12 To us puny humans, everything God is in Himself, and everything God does in action — is extreme. His power is extreme. His divine nature is extreme. His knowledge is extreme. His mercy is extreme. His compassion is extreme. All that He […]
…the worthless prayers of fake “people of faith” – “Fake Christians“ Oh how easily some say “that’s true” – what mere men may say, but so so flippantly put His Message down – what God Himself did say. False, fake and beguiled, they listen to some staged suit, up in lights, so convincing there on […]
A prayer of praise to God
I cast my cares on You my Lord, Father God. I look to You in faith believing You will carry the day today. Power me through it. Love others through me. I know You go before me. You prepare the way before I get there. You know my ways before I think them up and […]
Before a good cup a Joe
I start most every day something like this: I get on up and get on High. I’m lifted up. I start my day with God in prayer – just me and God in the cavern of my head. Creator God is everywhere. Nowhere that He’s not. And He’s in my head. He knows my thoughts. My thoughts, an open gateway to my soul, for God. I think my thoughts to Him “in prayer”. No one hears me, but God Himself. He even knows what I’m about to say. Oh mysterious, sacred Spirit that lives inside my eternal soul.
The well-guarded soul
Since I am born again into a new life in Christ, I’m not only human, after all. Never again. Through Christ I am now a new creation of God, and He, by the Holy Spirit, has a special place inside my soul. Like no other “god” could have done, He made my spirit alive so […]
Talking to Jesus
Is it proper to pray to Jesus directly, instead of directing our prayer to Father God, as Jesus Himself prayed? What does the Bible itself say about that?
Lord, Father, I bow my heart before you
…a prayer for today Oh Lord, Father, I just come to you now in prayer. In my inner soul I kneel before you. Oh my God, thank You for the privilege to come into Your very presence this very moment. Thank you for your goodness, and your kindness. Thank you that you love me – […]
How Prayer Works
Prayer is a mysterious thing, is it not? Praying: I come to God through my spirit, with my soul speaking from my mind and heart. The Bible says God hears and responds to the prayers of His people. Prayer “works” because God is gracious and forgiving and asks us to come into His presence. If […]
The little verse of Psalm 66:18 teaches us a whole lot about God – and prayer. Just in this tiny verse we see: “If I regard wickedness in my heart, The Lord will not hear.” I am born again, and God has forgiven me of all my sins. However, on any given day or moment, if I come to Him in prayer AND am holding a sin, so to speak, or allowing a sin to have a place in my life — then, the Bible tells me: God will not give heed to what I say.
Mold me as an instrument of use
Want to be put to good use – by God? Pray like this…
Finding Perfect Peace
Are you struggling with something and finding no peace? Go to the Lord in prayer. There’s a whole lot’a stuff that can keep us struggling! Life throws curve balls. And we’re not all that perfect. We all have issues. Things can get out of balance real quickly.
Do you pray like this, not heeding Scripture?
Biblical prayer is not a decree; and we do not “curse” disease. Please don’t tell me it is based on Jesus cursing the tree! Prayers like “I decree”, “I command…”, “I curse the cancer…”, “I… command it to flee right now”, “I declare this to… dry bones”? What what WHAT! What “promise” of the Word says THAT?
Prayer in the Bible
…passages on prayer in the Bible 1 Peter 5:6-7 6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, 7 casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. “…one of His disciples said to Him, “Lord, teach us to pray just as John also taught […]
What does the Bible teach us about prayer? We are taught to pray humbly to God the Father for whatever our need may be, in faith believing that He loves us like a father loves his child, and He will answer according to His will, according to what is best for us. How did Jesus […]
Wishes and Prayers
We often hear the plea for “wishes and prayers” – when someone is in dire need. It’s a natural response from a heart desperate for help for the victim. For example: Tweet by Britney Spears: Need all the wishes and prayers for my niece FoxNews: Feb. 07, 2017 – 0:45 – Britney Spears asks fans […]
