Prayer (Giving Your Last) Word For The Day! by Elaine Davenport Monday, October 5, 2009

In everything I have pointed out to you [by example] that, by working diligently in this manner, we ought to assist the weak, being mindful of the words of the Lord Jesus, how He Himself said, It is more blessed (makes one happier and more to be envied) to give than to receive. Acts 20: 35


I was planning to take a trip down to Texas for a Faith Conference.  I had saved up my monies.  I had done all of the right things.  I had p\aid my plane fare months beforehand.  I had put aside my spending money and hotel fees.  Everything was just perfect.  Then I got a book in the mail from  a ministry in Russia.

They were asking for monies.  I’m going to be honest.  I said:  “I didn’t ask for them to send me this book.”  I decided not to even read it though I was curious.  It was a hardcover book.  One of my pet peeves was I hated for people to “presume” anything about me and my money.

I had a real tight budget at the time…I thought.  I was overcome with fear.  I wanted to obey, but giving up my only money seemed like such a stupid thing.  Would I do that for God?  It was a test for me.

After much prayer, I became full of peace.  It was all God’s idea; I could trust Him.

As I meditated in the Word of God over the next few days, I realized that I needed to send this ministry some money.  So, I asked God how much in my prayers.  Pretty soon, I kept hearing $500.00.

WHAT?  That was the exact amount I had saved for my trip though I was planning to add more.  My trip was just a little over 30 days away.  I began to pray…I said:  “Lord, if You want me to sow $500.00 into this ministry…you’re going to have to send it.

I’m not going to lie…it did not come.

I began to thank God for choosing me to be an example.  No one would know but me and God.  I contined to pray and meditate in the bible.  I confessed the Word over myself.  Love began to manifest in my spirit.  All of a sudden I had great compassion for what God would do in Russia.  I followed the Holy Spirit and I sowed the seed.     That was right around the time that I started this site.  One turned into two and now nine sites later, I still follow God’s plan.  I never dreamed it would be this big.  Never.

I went to the bank, got the money out.  I told no one.  I sent it to Russia.

As soon as I sent it…weird stuff began to happen.  All of my monies came and more besides.  I had enough to cover myself and another friend for the trip.  It was the most phenomenal trip and my friends threw me a surprise Birthday party and gave me more money while on the trip.  I had never had a birthday party in my life before that!  That was the year of my greatest Overflow all because I obeyed.

6 Good Prayer Scriptures To Live By by Elaine Davenport (Monday, December 29, 2008


Most  people who need prayer don’t know where to begin. God desires a personal relationship with you.  So find a quiet place for starters…where you can be alone. We enter into His courts with praise and into His (God’s) gates with thanksgiving.  That ushers in the presence of God.

1. 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

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

3. Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. Matthew 7:7-8(NKJV)

4. Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man. Luke 21: 36(NKJV)

5. Pray at all times (on every occasion, in every season) in the Spirit, with all [manner of] prayer and entreaty. To that end keep alert and watch with strong purpose and perseverance, interceding in behalf of all the saints (God’s consecrated people).
Ephesians 6: 18

6. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem! May they prosper who love you [the Holy City]!
Psalm 122:6

Outnumbered! by Elaine Davenport Friday, August 15, 2008

Perhaps, you are facing a situation where you expect to be outnumbered. In that case; there’s only one way to handle it…trust God. That’s the only thing that you can do to guarantee you a sure victory.

Now, I don’t know what kind of seed you’ve sown or even if you deserve for things to not go your way. I know none of that, but I know God is merciful! Oh yes He is.

Look at 1 John 1:9…at what it says:

1 John 1:9 (New King James Version)

9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

You can confess your sins of omission or commission in a room alone, under your breath, in your car or anywhere you want and no one has to hear you but God. That’s a pretty good deal huh? I think so too. smile.


When God cleanses you, He puts you in right standing with Him. No need for guilt, or shame…it’s forgotten.

Now for those whom you’ll face…trust God to give you the words to say or the ability to remain quiet if necessary. Have peace about it. The promises of God assure your victory. If you don’t believe me….Get in the Word of God; it’s all there!
