Can’t Pray Enough! by Elaine Davenport September 30, 2013

In my prayer life, I targeted one person more than any other.  I have done this for years, that person is reaping a mighty harvest continually.  I know that every prayer for that person will be answered promptly. In fact, I have come to expect it.    What is the formula?  It’s simple:  30 minutes  a day from the heart.  That is the formula.  I have stepped iy up. That was just a starter formula.

 

FILL IN THE NAME BELOW…

Colossians 1:9-12
Father I am asking that __________ will be filled with the knowledge of Your will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of You, fully pleasing to You, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of You. May __________be strengthened with all power, according to Your glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy, giving thanks to You, because You have qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in light.AJESUSINDEPENDENCE

 

 

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

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.

The Prayer That Works! By Elaine Davenport December, 2012 December, 2012

The prayer that works is the one that you believe when you pray.  It’s the prayer of faith.  It’s the prayer that you believe it’s been answered as soon as you ask for it.  It’s the prayer that is sealed:  “In Jesus Name.”    It is sometimes a prayer of agreement.  It’s the prayer that can  move mountains.  It’s the fervent prayer.  It’s  the prayer of the righteous.  It’s the Prayer of supplication. 

It’s you being yourself in all humility standing before God in the throne room asking for mercy in your time of need…and He’ll hear you.  Jesus sits at the right hand of God forever to intercede for you.

It can’t get any better than this.  It’s all God’s promises and there’s plenty more…read the book.

Seek the LORD while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near. Isaiah 55: 6(NKJV)

Pray For Peace! by Elaine Davenport July 30, 2012

A dear friend who has never asked me to pray with her, recently asked for prayer.  After listening to her story, I knew that she needed peace.  We all need that.  God will not only give it for a situation, but He will replenish you whenever you need it.  Peace is something that I love.  It keeps me grounded.  You can have it too.  This is not the definition of peace the opposite of war per say.  It is peace in your spirit, calmness, and quiet control no matter what is happening around you.  It is a cherished state of being.

 

 

 

For He is [Himself] our peace (our bond of unity and harmony). He has made us both [Jew and Gentile] one [body], and has broken down (destroyed, abolished) the hostile dividing wall between us. Ephesians 2: 14

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

 

Not Simple…My Christmas Prayer! by E. Davenport December 25, 2011

Last night I learned a big big lesson.  Some things which had been overlooked came to a head.  When the dust settled; I was angry.   I wasn’t angry at God…or any person.  I was angry at myself and the devil.  Because I had glossed over things and not dealing truly with the problems, in fact, they had not gone away.

I was too disgusted to pray!   I had never been that way.  If only I could praise I would feel better, but the truth is…I did not think of that!

I decided to write out a Prayer Of Petition.  You see, a while ago I had ordered Jerry Savelle‘s Book The Prayer Of Petition and I had even read it, but it “looked” like too much work.

It was time for me to put this matter on the altar and write out a brief and present it to God.  I decided to do this BEFORE I prayed!  I had a lot on my heart.  It took two and a half hours!  Oh my goodness!   But, when I finished…I had a solid foundation and a renewed confidence that God would solve everything!  I was no longer angry.

My final petition printed out was 9 pages long!  In the end…there was a lot of Thanksgiving!   When I prayed…God assured me that Everything Was Going To Be Allright!   That was the prophecy that our Bishop Keith A. Butler and the  Prophet of God, Kenneth Copeland…both whom I adore greatly and I have not said that enough!
