What If Our Prayers Aren’t Answered?

Keep a cool head. Stay alert. The Devil is poised to pounce and would like nothing better than to catch you napping. Keep your guard up . . . (I Peter 5:8-9) Continue reading

A Lesson to Learn

I have often been challenged with my most cherished values and doctrines. I remember when Peter first traveled to Cornelius’ home in Caesarea, he learned that the whole Gentile world was waiting to be opened up for the Gospel (Acts 10)! Continue reading

Perseverance Over Immediacy

Paul was cautioning us when he wrote:

Don’t burn out; keep yourselves fueled and aflame. Be alert servants of the Master, cheerfully expectant. Don’t quit in hard times; pray all the harder. Help needy Christians; be inventive in hospitality (Romans 12:11-13) Continue reading

Pray until You PRAY!

In the early days of my faith, I was fortunate to have some great people of faith disciple me. They always told me to, “Pray till you PRAY!” Most of us have never learned that. Paul wrote, “Keep praying! And, be alert and thankful as you pray! (Colossians 4:2).” He certainly knew the problems believers were having! You see, far too many of us don’t pray at all, but if we do, we stop praying before we have truly PRAYED! We are so easily distracted during our prayers that it seems senseless to waste our time!

A Way of Life!

Far too many of us . . . wait, I would say the majority of us greatly underestimate what our redemption in Christ Jesus has accomplished in our lives! We have been “born again;” re-born with the very life and nature of Yahweh! This new life has enough power to allow us to live in a state of purity and love where our whole lives will be offerings of worship and prayer! Do you understand that? Our individual prayers that come out of that kind of total surrender will have a wondrous power a careless or carnal Christian will never understand! Continue reading

Courage and Confidence

My friends, if we go to our Father and only ask Him to change our situation for us, we need to pray in the will of God and be on, what old-fashioned preachers used to call, “praying ground“! In other words, we must be living our lives in a way that pleases our Father! Continue reading

Prayers and Dreams

https://thinkingtoday.wordpress.com/2018/05/13/prayers-and-dreams/Greetings! There is an old saying that goes, “More things are wrought by prayer than this world dreams of!” Oh, how true that is! Things happen in our lives that are caused by someone praying for us! Are you saved? You might not be able to prove it, but I bet someone was praying for you! I can tell you many stories about that happening.  In fact, I believe it is safe to say that prayer is in back of everything our Father does is the result of someone’s prayers. Continue reading
