Welcome to our new home at WordPress! by Elaine Davenport

Hi! We were at Blogger, but we just weren’t reaching the masses so we were very pleased to move to WordPress where we really feel that it’s a good fit for us. We are sorry for any inconvenience and we thank God for the great technology that WordPress has. We received such prompt and helpful responses to our requests for assistance that we couldn’t believe it. We’ll be continually praying for Blessings for the staff at WordPress. We’ll also be praying Blessings for the staff over at Blogspot.

We’re here to pray for you. If you have any personal requests for prayer, please leave it in the comments section. We will have begun our intercession for you long before you see the notice. Thanks for your patience.

I’m relieved that changing Blogs isn’t as cumbersome as changing houses. lol. Blessings to you all!

My Uncle The Agnostic by Elaine Davenport (October 14- 21, 2007)

Before we pray, I just want to put you in mind of my Uncle Herman.  (not his real  name) He was the center of our family for such a long time. He was so much fun to be around. Oh my goodness. He only had one major flaw and I wasn’t able to make headway on it to help him.   Yes, no faith leaves one spiritually lacking.  In other words, I didn’t know what to do at the time. Some of you may (more likely than not) have this same problem. Uncle Herman said he was an agnostic. I suspect it was what some might call a “popular” decision made by people in the “in crowd” who want to be different. Uncle Herman had been different all of his life, once he made a decision he stuck by it. I talked to him about that agnostic thing but I didn’t have the kind of ammunition that I have now. I found out after he died that he respected me so much that he never wanted me to know the extent of his bad habits. In fact, he went to great length to hide them from me. It is with great regret that I speak of this. My prayer for all of us is that we will be bold about God with our family members and our friends and not shirk back. I’m honest when I say I don’t know if Uncle Herman changed his mind and confessed Christ before he died. I sure hope that he did.

Dearest Heavenly Father, you know our hearts. We stand before Your throne in the Authority of Jesus Christ, our great High Priest and we stand in great humility. We stand fully confident that it is Your will to add to Your family in the earth. Today, we ask that every family member, every friend who has not committed their lives to You will get an unction in their hearts to join the Kingdom of God. It is our prayer that they begin to totally understand Your way of doing things. We pray Father that they will be drawn unto You by Your Holy Spirit. We pray that the eyes of their enlightenment will be opened. We pray that their spiritual understanding will increase with such an urgency that they will no longer put off the heavenly life, the heavenly way. We pray that You will send worthy laborers to cross their paths to minister to them. We pray that they’ll see miracles, signs and wonders and such Divine revelation that they will know more than ever before that You are Jehovah Jireh. We thank You and count it done. Amen

Prayer for the Week of October 1-7, 2007

O Righteous and Most Precious Father, Almighty God. It is my prayer that you Bless everyone reading this prayer today. I pray that they will increase their confidence and be firmly persuaded to study and believe Your Word. I pray that they will have clarity of mind in all of their decisions, I pray that they will come to know Your love for them and their future. You said: Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health; even as thy soul prospereth in 111John 2.

I pray that their steps will be ordered by the Lord, that Your presence will go with them and You will give them rest. I pray that You will hold their right hand saying unto them: Fear not, I will help you. I pray that they will increase more and more them and their children. I pray that they will cast their burdens on you, knowing that you care for them. Father, strengthen hearts this day. I bind the spirit of confusion or fear and loose Godly wisdom and peace over each and every life in Jesus Name. Amen

Prayer for the Week of 9/3/07-9/9/07 by Elaine Davenport

Father God in heaven, we just thank You. You are so majestic, so powerful, so full of mercy. We thank You for sending Your son, the Lord Jesus Christ to redeem us. It is our prayer this day that the full world will come to understand Christ’s role in our lives. We stand before you today asking for your unmerited favor in every endeavor and every situation that we face. Father, we ask You to direct us and guide us and should be misstep; we will be quick to repent. Father teach us how to love people in a Godly way that give You Honor and Glory.

We pray for the people of the world. We lift up the people of Jerusalem, the people of Africa and Brazil. We pray for every child that tries to make their way. We break the curse of poverty, oppression and racism over their lives. We bind Satan from fooling people and deceiving them through trickery and lies. It is our prayer that people will be open to the Word of Salvation and the Word of knowledge throughout the world even including the United States and within our families. We ask it all in the Authority of Jesus.

(2007- The Year of the Open Door)

And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name-

Revelations

And when they had preached the word in Perga, they went down into Attalia: And thence sailed to Antioch, from whence they had been recommended to the grace of God for the work which they fulfilled. And when they were come, and had gathered the church together, they rehearsed all that God had done with them, and how he had opened the door of faith unto the Gentiles.

Acts

1 CORINTHIANS 16

For I will not see you now by the way; but I trust to tarry a while with you, if the Lord permit. For a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries.

2 CORINTHIANS To whom ye forgive any thing, I forgive also: for if I forgave any thing, to whom I forgave it, for your sakes forgave I it in the person of Christ; Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices. Furthermore, when I came to Troas to preach Christ’s gospel, and a door was opened unto me of the Lord,

COLOSSIANS 4: Masters, give unto your servants that which is just and equal; knowing that ye also have a Master in heaven. Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving; Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds:

LUKE 11 And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

(2007- The Year of the Open Door) (Continued Page 2)

ACTS 5: Insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the streets, and laid them on beds and couches, that at the least the shadow of Peter passing by might overshadow some of them. There came also a multitude out of the cities round about unto Jerusalem, bringing sick folks, and them which were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed every one.

Then the high priest rose up, and all they that were with him, (which is the sect of the Sadducees,) and were filled with indignation, And laid their hands on the apostles, and put them in the common prison.
But the angel of the Lord by night opened the prison doors, and brought them forth, and said, Go, stand and speak in the temple to the people all the words of this life. And when they heard that, they entered into the temple early in the morning, and taught. But the high priest came, and they that were with him, and called the council together, and all the senate of the children of Israel, and sent to the prison to have them brought. But when the officers came, and found them not in the prison, they returned and told, Saying, The prison truly found we shut with all safety, and the keepers standing without before the doors: but when we had opened, we found no man within.

Now when the high priest and the captain of the temple and the chief priests heard these things, they doubted of them whereunto this would grow. Then came one and told them, saying, Behold, the men whom ye put in prison are standing in the temple, and teaching the people.

ACTS 16 And when they had laid many stripes upon them, they cast them into prison, charging the jailor to keep them safely: Who, having received such a charge, thrust them into the inner prison, and made their feet fast in the stocks. And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.
