Praying For Fire! by Elaine Davenport Thursday, September 4, 2008


Settle [it] therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer: For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist. Luke 21: 14,15

And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, Ephesians 6: 19

Blessings, Dear friend! How are you doing? I pray that this note finds you well. I really care. Everyday I pray for you because you are so critically important to the body of Christ. You do make a difference with your efforts and your pure heart. You know, God has called so many people forth to pray and to make a difference and while some are thinking about it, analyzing it and dissecting it; you came forth and have stayed. God is pleased. I just wrote to you to tell you that your good efforts are noted and that there is much to do. However, I’m not concerned in anyway because “we” can handle it! There is a bigger homeless problem than the world talks about. I’m not being presumptuous, I have a question for you and for myself:


You know…the people who right now have no residence in heaven. What are we doing about them? They’re all around us, we’ve got to get to work. We must be relentless!

Relentless means: being persistent, unyielding, insistent, inexorable which means: uncompromising, unstoppable, unavoidable and changeable. Have you been this way about the Gospel? If you have, then you’ve got to help somebody else.

There There is a fire that burns on the inside of every believer. Inside of you and inside of me. Sometimes it is raging out of control. It gives us a passion to tell others about God, about Jesus and about the Holy Ghost! We want to tell them about salvation and healing and wholeness and some more good stuff that will set them free. We want to give them hope for the future and to tell them about victory; but they literally don’t want to hear it sometimes. I’ve watched people and they will listen to stuff that they hate; but they definitely don’t want to hear me talk about God. It feels like they are throwing water on my fire and trying to put it out. But, I don’t go by “feelings”. Smile. Over time that wears away at you if you aren’t careful and you’ll find yourself being selective about who you tell. Well that’s what the enemy wants and so I won’t do it.

I want to encourage you to prepare yourself to take God’s message to the far corners of the earth…(and even next door) Make that Word intense and lively when you speak it! If it is dull and unexciting to us…it will be the same for the people who hear us talk. First, get your ammunition, get in the Word and get clear on this! If you’ve got it down pat…help somebody else. You won’t have to go far, I assure you!

There’s also a fire that burns in side of every unbeliever. We’ve just got to help them get that fire going. They’re unsure, uncertain, doubtful, hesitant, indecisive, undecided because they are waiting for YOU to cross their path and SAY SOMETHING!

I recently sent a letter to two people in the mail telling them about the LORD. They were two people who have faced multiple challenges and I was sure that they would throw the letter away and never read it. Imagine my surprise when they called and said: “What should we do next?”

We have to be prepared to tell them what to do next. I sure learned a lesson there, smile. I just want to tell you: Don’t let them (anyone who doesn’t want to hear your words) throw water on your fire and if they do…rekindle it right away! YOU HAVE AN ETERNAL FLAME! I love you and be Blessed fellow officer in the LORD’s army!


My Uncle The Agnostic by Elaine Davenport (October 14- 21, 2007)

Before we pray, I just want to put you in mind of my Uncle Herman.  (not his real  name) He was the center of our family for such a long time. He was so much fun to be around. Oh my goodness. He only had one major flaw and I wasn’t able to make headway on it to help him.   Yes, no faith leaves one spiritually lacking.  In other words, I didn’t know what to do at the time. Some of you may (more likely than not) have this same problem. Uncle Herman said he was an agnostic. I suspect it was what some might call a “popular” decision made by people in the “in crowd” who want to be different. Uncle Herman had been different all of his life, once he made a decision he stuck by it. I talked to him about that agnostic thing but I didn’t have the kind of ammunition that I have now. I found out after he died that he respected me so much that he never wanted me to know the extent of his bad habits. In fact, he went to great length to hide them from me. It is with great regret that I speak of this. My prayer for all of us is that we will be bold about God with our family members and our friends and not shirk back. I’m honest when I say I don’t know if Uncle Herman changed his mind and confessed Christ before he died. I sure hope that he did.

Dearest Heavenly Father, you know our hearts. We stand before Your throne in the Authority of Jesus Christ, our great High Priest and we stand in great humility. We stand fully confident that it is Your will to add to Your family in the earth. Today, we ask that every family member, every friend who has not committed their lives to You will get an unction in their hearts to join the Kingdom of God. It is our prayer that they begin to totally understand Your way of doing things. We pray Father that they will be drawn unto You by Your Holy Spirit. We pray that the eyes of their enlightenment will be opened. We pray that their spiritual understanding will increase with such an urgency that they will no longer put off the heavenly life, the heavenly way. We pray that You will send worthy laborers to cross their paths to minister to them. We pray that they’ll see miracles, signs and wonders and such Divine revelation that they will know more than ever before that You are Jehovah Jireh. We thank You and count it done. Amen
