The Lords Prayer is one of those sacred cows that most see as a prayer that should play a prominent role in the lives of Christians today. Continue reading
Persevering in prayer through tough situations is something we all must make a quality decision to do. Tough times in this life are guaranteed to come. What will you do when you reach that fork in the road where you’re tempted to give up, cave in and quit, versus persevering to see the manifestation of your prayer? Continue reading
Answered prayer is always guaranteed. In fact it’s impossible to pray and not get an answer to prayer. What we have to realize is that “no” is just as valid an answer as “yes”, where answered prayer is concerned. Continue reading
Thank God in all situations and in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus – 1 Thessalonians 5:18
To whom can we say we owe all that we are, all that we will ever be, all that we have and all that we will ever have? There is no other worthy of thanks on the level that our God almighty is. Continue reading
Tongues or specifically Praying in Other Tongues is the most powerful method of prayer. The Holy Spirit is our divine helper even when it comes to prayer. For we know not how to pray as we ought; but the Spirit Himself maketh intercession for us with groaning’s which cannot be uttered…Romans 8:26 Continue reading
Salvation through Jesus Christ, is the foundation of Christianity. Jesus said in John 14:6, “I am the way the truth and the life. No man comes to the Father but by me“.
Salvation through Jesus Christ is the bridge between God and man. Acceptance of God’s Son assures you of eternal life beginning here in this life, and continuing on into life after your body physically dies and your spirit leaves this earth.
If you don’t have a relationship with God through Jesus Christ, you can make Jesus the Lord of your life right now through prayer. Continue reading
Today I’d like to talk briefly about the Prayer of Consecration or, the “If It Be Thy Will” prayer. Jesus prayed the Prayer of Consecration in Matthew 26:36-46 right before He went to the Cross. In this prayer, Jesus was consecrating himself (setting Himself apart) to do the Will of God regardless of His personal feelings or desires. Continue reading
Again I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in Heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. Matthew 18:19-20 – KJV Continue reading
Quite simply, intercessory prayer is the act of praying on behalf of others. The role of mediator in prayer was prevalent in the Old Testament, in the cases of Abraham, Moses, David, Samuel, Hezekiah, Elijah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and Daniel. Christ is pictured in the New Testament as the ultimate intercessor, and because of this, all Christian prayer becomes intercession since it is offered to God through and by Christ. Continue reading
Types of Prayer: Petition Prayer
Petition prayer (also called the prayer of faith) is when you’re asking God for something. I’ll use 1 John 5:14-15 as my basis for this example.
I call 1 John 5:14-15 the “Polaroid” scriptures. I’m sure I’m dating myself, but many years ago (I won’t tell you how many) we used to use Polaroid cameras. These cameras came with a carton of 4×5 cards with photo developer solution on each card.
The idea was that you loaded the cards into the camera. As you take each picture, a blank card would slide out of the front of the camera and as you held the card, the photo that you took would develop on the card in your hand. Continue reading
