Do You Want More Prayer Power? June, 2013

PrayerWell if you do, you are not alone.  Years ago, I was desperate for prayer.  I had only heard one person in my life say they were “working for the Lord.” at a very early age and I remember silently saying:  “Hmmm, I like that idea.”   However, my life was to have many twists and turns before that would happen.   There came a long dry season in which I needed to learn about prayer and faith and move closer to God…and I am thankful for that season.

Jesus prayed all of the time.  Do you see how much prayer  power he had.  I never read one account in the bible of him failing.  I do not care about other belief systems, nor do I respect them at al; simply because I know that they are false and missing the mark.  One of the reasons that so many have embraced false religions is because for so many of them, they have seen no difference in our lives.  Of course, I can say that if we were to share some of our wonderful stories they would be more inspired to investigate.

 

But I do want to take time right this moment to encourage you to press in and pray like Jesus at all times and to get serious so that we can move in the New Testament miracles!

 

Psalm 107:28-30 Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress. He made the storm be still, and the waves of the sea were hushed. Then they were glad that the waters were quiet, and he brought them to their desired haven

Why Won’t You Pray? by Elaine Davenport June 23, 2012

You can’t see your next problem, but God can.  He wants to help you avoid a big mess, but you keep ignoring Him.  In some cases, you need Him…but you’re stubborn or way too misinformed in thinking it way too small of a problem to bother God about.   Maybe, you are like some “supersmart” people that I know.   They can handle everything themselves.  And that’s okay too if you like bad endings or endings that end way short of the best likely outcome!  This isn’t just talk.

My spiritual Father has always taught of the successes that manifest as a result of having a viable prayer life!   It is so true.  I never ever want to miss a day of prayer; an opportunity to hear and be ministered to personally by God!   NEVER!!  It’s unthinkable!

When people call me with a problem…I will not talk a long time.  I point them to prayer.  But guess what?   They don’t want to do that sometimes…they just want to talk about it with me or whoever.   Will that help them?  NO WAY!

If you are experiencing a problem…get out your Bible or Bible app or whatever your source  of reference and access your bible scriptures and READ them.   I guarantee you that you will be comforted!

Prayer changed my life and it can change yours too.  It is an opportunity to talk to God.   You see…God loves you so much that He’s just waiting to tell you…just waiting to show you.  His arms are wide open and He is eagerly waiting to hold you, to calm your fears and wipe away all of your troubles.   This is so true.

After many years of praying, I found out that God wanted to have a back and forth conversation.  Sometimes I ride along the freeway and I listen as God speaks to my heart!  I get so much peace from that.

Here are some scriptures that will Bless you.  Write me and tell me about your efforts to have a Fabulous prayer life!  It will Bless my heart!!!    Thanks   Love Elaine

Let my prayer be set forth as incense before You, the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice. Psalm 141: 2

Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer; and listen to the cry of my supplications. Psalm 86: 6

Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God. Philippians 4: 6

Be earnest and unwearied and steadfast in your prayer [life], being [both] alert and intent in [your praying] with thanksgiving. Colossians 4: 2

Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness! You have relieved me in my distress; have mercy on me, and hear my prayer. Psalm 4: 1(NKJV)

The Lord has heard my supplication; the Lord receives my prayer. Psalm 6: 9

 

When God Says: “Go!” By E. Davenport December 16, 2011

 

 

Isaiah 30:21 says, “And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This [is] the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.

Yesterday, I had a directive from my heart to attend a training meeting that I was invited to.  As soon as I found out that I had overslept I immediately began to rationalize my not going.  I heard a really small voice say:  “Press your way.”    ” Okay Lord, I will.”  I replied.

So, I went to the meeting.  I went to the meeting and I kept wondering why the Lord wanted me to go?   I arrived and I knew nobody, this did not bother me at all because  lately I’ve managed to mesh into the background very well and have found some comfort there.  (It’s a humility role)

 

At the meeting, I made a new friend; a believer and as I spoke to them; I truly believe the Lord was using me when I spoke.   I’m so glad that I made this friend because they have expertise and training in areas that I need tio know about.  That’s Divine!!

 

 

 

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

IT’S PAST TIME FOR US TO TALK SOME RELENTLESS TALK TO SOME PEOPLE ABOUT JESUS AND SHOW THEM SOME SIGNS AND WONDERS!

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:

WHAT ARE “WE” DOING ABOUT THE KINGDOM HOMELESS?

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!

LET’S PRAY FOR FIRE!
