Reflecting on Prayer Power by Elaine Davenport (Monday, October 22, 2007)

Psalm 40:1
“I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.”

1Thessalonians 5:17
“Pray without ceasine


There are so many benefits to working on the front lines as a prayer warrior. I equate the excitement to be the same as a person who takes a journey around the world for the first time; every day a new adventure!

There is power in prayer! I know it! I see it! I hear it all the time!

What really sticks with me was my dear friend who grew up during the Depression. She went home to be with the Lord a few years ago. She told me that she and her sister were from a poor family in Detroit. They literally lived on the wrong side of the tracks. She and her sister could not get a school lunch and that bothered her so much. She said your name had to be on a list at school. She could accept being poor and not having as much as others; but not being able to get luch must have made them targets of great ridicule! It was humiliating, embarrassing and demeaning. It was not her fault. I don’t think she knew her earthly father. I never heard her mention him. Oh, but she had a heavenly Father!

As a young girl at the age of ten years; she thought that God was real. In faith she prayed that God would put she and her sister’s name on the lunch list. It sounds like a tall order, but not for God! Imagine…

a ten year old child believing that the Hand of God would show up and put her and her sister’s names on the lunch list!

Well, her prayers were answered…the next day…she came to school and their names were on the luch list. She never forgot it. She made God She was more than a conqueror at ten! a priority in her life from that day forth!


A Prayer for Families by Elaine Davenport ( Week of September 10th -16th, 2007)

Blessings to you. Today, I am pulling for you in prayer! Be Encouraged! Be Cheerful! Be in Faith. Please view this site’s most popular attraction: THE POWER OF PRAYER

Father, please hear our prayer. Father we lift up every family. We ask You to pour Your Love and your mercy and grace on them. It is our prayer that if they are broken; that they will be healed. Families face so much in this world Father. Your word says that whatsoever things we bind on earth shall be bound in heaven and whatsoever things we lose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. So we bind: abuse, trauma, poverty, unbelief, alcoholism, drugs, neglect, suicide, gangs, cults, demons, abductions, shaken baby syndrome, SID’s disorder, ADD, unemployment, defiance, homelessness, mental illness, any form of sickness and disease, mismanagement of funds, disorganization, disobedience, schisms, miscommunication, division, anger, deceit or anything that might bring hurt, harm, fear or danger to any family. We loose knowledge, peace, wisdom, order, love, joy, prosperity and wholeness to families. You Blessed us with families and yet we face so much so we cast our cares and burdens on You because we know that You care for us.

Help each of us to appreciate and value the people in our lives. Give us words and acts of kindness at the right times to demonstrate the love of God. Help us to remember that the Greater One lives on the inside of us. Give us favor in our relationships, the ability to adapt, be flexible and not to be rattled. Help us to be mindful of the feelings of others. Teach us to hold our tongues when necessary. Allow us to use words that will paint a beautiful picture of the wonderful beings that we are . Allow us to be humble and patient. Correct us when we are wrong, order our steps, lead us in the right ways. As we walk, dispense our ministering angels before us to prosper our way.

Teach us to grow in Godly wisdom, make a way for us to increase, court us as we build our faith, forgive us our sins as we walk the straight and narrow path trying not to miss it to the left or to the right. Touch us so that we’ll remember to be thankful, to be bold, to tell others about you unashamedly. Remind us not to be prideful. Mark us in such a way that others will want to know what we know and separate us unto You. Allow us quiet time each day with you and open a passage way for us to grow and mature, spiritually, emotionally, physically and whatever way You deem is necessary.

Father, if we have left anything uncovered or if we have overlooked anything at all big or small; please cover us. We thank You and ask it all in the Authority of our defense attorney; Jesus The High Priest. Amen

Prayer for the Week of 9/3/07-9/9/07 by Elaine Davenport

Father God in heaven, we just thank You. You are so majestic, so powerful, so full of mercy. We thank You for sending Your son, the Lord Jesus Christ to redeem us. It is our prayer this day that the full world will come to understand Christ’s role in our lives. We stand before you today asking for your unmerited favor in every endeavor and every situation that we face. Father, we ask You to direct us and guide us and should be misstep; we will be quick to repent. Father teach us how to love people in a Godly way that give You Honor and Glory.

We pray for the people of the world. We lift up the people of Jerusalem, the people of Africa and Brazil. We pray for every child that tries to make their way. We break the curse of poverty, oppression and racism over their lives. We bind Satan from fooling people and deceiving them through trickery and lies. It is our prayer that people will be open to the Word of Salvation and the Word of knowledge throughout the world even including the United States and within our families. We ask it all in the Authority of Jesus.
