Prayer Power! by E. Davenport February, 2014

James 5: 16      Prayer

Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.

1 Thessalonians 5:17 ESV

Pray without ceasing,

Philippians 4:6 ESV

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

Consistent Prayer is one of the things that many of us do not know enough about.  It actually works.  Prayer is a seed and the more that we pray afer we plant it…just know that the seed is still being nurtured and cared for.  So even if you see nothing happening after you have prayed…do not lose hope.  God hears our prayers.

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

Independence Day Prayer Thoughts! July, 2013

AJESUSINDEPENDENCE

1 Peter 2:13-17

Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every human institution, whether to a king as the one in authority, or to governors as sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and the praise of those who do right. For such is the will of God that by doing right you may silence the ignorance of foolish men. Act as free men, and do not use your freedom as a covering for evil, but use it as bondslaves of God. Honor all men; love the brotherhood, fear God, honor the king.

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

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
