Prayer Without Thanksgiving ! by E. Davenport October, 2013

on knees praying

 

If you read the book of Phillipians, you will see why PRAYER MUST ACCOMPANY THANKSGIVING….The answer is right there in the bible….if we pray WITH thanksgiving…we will have peace.  Does it make sense?   It doesn’t have to if God says it. That’s all I needed to hear.    So when someone comes to you for prayr; explain it to them. It will make a huge difference.

 

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

And the peace of God, vwhich surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.And uthe peace of God, vwhich surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.  Philippians 4: 7

The Power Of His Resurrection! March, 2013

Philippians 3:10-12
I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead. Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.

Change The Way That You Pray in 2013! January 1, 2013

There are three types of  prayer categories and each one contains a variety of people.  This is a Christian perspective.  I do not pretend to know the dictates of any other group. 

APRAYERWORKS

 

1. The first group is people who don’t pray at all.  It could be because they don’t believe in prayer.  It could be because they don’t have time.  There are some cases of pessimistic people  who have no hope.

2. The second group is people who think about what they want to pray about.  They actually talk to God and the truth is that it is a form of prayer.  I respect it because that’s how I started.  It’s a wonderful place to be because God hears and answers  and in this position one knows that God is real.

3. The third group is a huge variety of people.  It may take me a little while to describe the many prayer styles.

A. Some people get on their knees and pray.

B. Some people lie alone on a floor, on a bed or somewhere alone on their face and pray to God.

C. Some people pray through the night hours.

D.  Many people pray daily and some several times throughout the day.

E. I know people who are so dedicated in prayer that they pray specifically as led nby God for people in far away places.  There are people that are selected to pray for very specific things such as:  crime, government, leaders, countries and all sorts of things.   I have a friend who prays for Israel.  That’s her assignment.

I could go on and on.There are a select few that travel in prayer. You may not understand or believe this; though many travel physically…I have…some travel supernaturally.  There are people who are accustomed to prayer…they believe in it because they know it works.

There are always higher levels that can be reached in prayer.  Having a stable prayer life increases one’s faith.  It’s 2013 and as we will see God’s great grace to the magnitude that has not been seen…it’s an excellent time to step up our prayer lives! 

1 Corinthians 1:4I give thanks to my God always for you because of the grace of God that was given you in Christ Jesus,

Ephesians 6:18 praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints,

Philippians 1:3-4 I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy,

Colossians 1:3 (KJV) We give thanks to God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you,

1 Thessalonians 5:17 pray without ceasing

Thanksgiving Prayer By Elaine Davenport November, 2012

 

 

Father we magnify You today.  What a great and glorious day!  Thank You for awakening me to Your goodness.  Thank You for alerting me to Your love.  Thank You for sending Your beloved Son to take away all sin and sickness from our lives.  Thank You for Your leading, Your soft whispers, the wind, the beautiful world that surrounds us.  Thank You for going before us.  Thank You for coming behind us to protect and shield us.  Thank You for allowing us to be with You …in relationship.  Thank You for calling us friend, Son, Daughter.  Thank You for our Dear Lord Jesus.  Thank You for the Holy Spirit.  Thank You for allowing us to serve You, to reflect Your qualities in our lives.  Thank You for forgiveness, mercy, boldness, revelation and wisdom.  Thank You for the gifts.  Thank You…we trust You…In Jesus Name.  Amen.

 

Why Aren’t You Crying? by Elaine Davenport October, 2012

I heard the voice of the Lord saying:  “Whom shall I send and who will go for Us.”  And I said, “Here am I, send me.”  Isaiah 6: 8

As I read the devotional of Smith Wigglesworth I was struck by the message.

You see, many of us come to Christ, get saved, sanctified and speak in heavenly languages.  We get cleaned up and then God starts making our lives better, answering our prayers,,,but studies show that 90% of Born again saints have never saved a soul or made soul winning their ministry.  It’s downright embarrassing.

How  can we say that we are happy knowing so many people around us are headed to hell.  Then there is this awful denial.  I have never been to a funeral that says someone is going to hell.  Yet, I’ve seen on two occasions people put a liquor bottle in a casket and everyone laughed.  I pray that I never see this again and if I do…I pray that my tears will not stop.

We must examine our values for you see that as we compromise; it dulls our compassion.!

If God is first in our lives…everything that we do or say is to be pleasing to Him.  Otherwise we lie ourselves.  As Smith Wigglesworth says:  “If we do not weep …then we are not Pentecost-full.”   And that my friend…is very sad.  We’ve got our PRAYER work cut out for us!
