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
