Are We Patient Enough?

Monday be obedient to his word

 

Have A Wonderful and Blessed Day!!! We Need To Show Patience!!!

How Do We Sound When We Go To The Lord In Prayer; When we go before the Lord in prayer in times of trouble are we sounding like doubting Thomas, like cry-babies not truly believing the Lord will help?
Do we sound like poor me I have this problem Lord and it is worst than anyone else’s ever. When we read our Bible (and in order to understand about answered prayer that’s one way to get answered prayer). We see how well many great prayer warriors in the past went to the Lord in prayer, one was in 2Chronicles his name being Jehoshaphat. When we read this section he prays how others went before the Lord before him. He talks of how the Lord rid Israel of heathen, evil people before. How he gave this land to Abraham, and how evil people were coming again. Jehoshaphat ordered a fast throughout the whole nation. He did not pray telling the Lord how awful he felt and how he couldn’t face this problem and he would just die if these bad people came in and took over. When he ends his prayer he tells the Lord we don’t know what to do but their eyes are on him. This is the way we need to be praying. We need to fast and if because of medical issues we can’t not eat anything fast part of the day, or give up sugar for a week, a special treat you enjoy.

Prayer is a very important part of life. We must do it with the right heart attitude. Some will use it as a gossip session this is wrong, some will use it to prove a point, again wrong, some will use it as a look at how good I am WRONG!!! This is time to go before the Lord’s holy throne open up your heart, praise him, give him honor, glory and praise, ask forgiveness, give request for others, ask for self, and for his will, and thank him. Sometimes just go before him spend time thanking him and praising him for who he is and what he has done.

In prayer, we choose to either magnify the Lord or our difficulty. Are you concentrating on the faithfulness of the Lord or your overpowering problem and negative feelings? Let’s keep our eyes on Him and wait with complete confidence in him, until we see the great things He will do.

2Chronicles 20:1 It came to pass after this also, that the children of Moab, and the children of Ammon, and with them other beside the Ammonites, came against Jehoshaphat to battle.
2Chronicles 20:2 Then there came some that told Jehoshaphat, saying, There cometh a great multitude against thee from beyond the sea on this side Syria; and, behold, they be in Hazazontamar, which is Engedi.
2Chronicles 20:3 And Jehoshaphat feared, and set himself to seek the LORD, and proclaimed a fast throughout all Judah.

2Chronicles 20:7 Art not thou our God, who didst drive out the inhabitants of this land before thy people Israel, and gavest it to the seed of Abraham thy friend for ever?
2Chronicles 20:8 And they dwelt therein, and have built thee a sanctuary therein for thy name, saying,
2Chronicles 20:9 If, when evil cometh upon us, as the sword, judgment, or pestilence, or famine, we stand before this house, and in thy presence, (for thy name is in this house,) and cry unto thee in our affliction, then thou wilt hear and help.
2Chronicles 20:10 And now, behold, the children of Ammon and Moab and mount Seir, whom thou wouldest not let Israel invade, when they came out of the land of Egypt, but they turned from them, and destroyed them not;
2Chronicles 20:11 Behold, I say, how they reward us, to come to cast us out of thy possession, which thou hast given us to inherit.
2Chronicles 20:12 O our God, wilt thou not judge them? for we have no might against this great company that cometh against us; neither know we what to do: but our eyes are upon thee.
2Chronicles 20:13 And all Judah stood before the LORD, with their little ones, their wives, and their children.
2Chronicles 20:14 Then upon Jahaziel the son of Zechariah, the son of Benaiah, the son of Jeiel, the son of Mattaniah, a Levite of the sons of Asaph, came the Spirit of the LORD in the midst of the congregation;
2Chronicles 20:15 And he said, Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat, Thus saith the LORD unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s.
2Chronicles 20:16 To morrow go ye down against them: behold, they come up by the cliff of Ziz; and ye shall find them at the end of the brook, before the wilderness of Jeruel.
2Chronicles 20:17 Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the LORD with you, O Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed; to morrow go out against them: for the LORD will be with you.
2Chronicles 20:18 And Jehoshaphat bowed his head with his face to the ground: and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem fell before the LORD, worshipping the LORD.
Mark 11:22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
Mark 11:23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
Mark 11:24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
Mark 11:25 And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.
Mark 11:26 But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.

 

THE BEAUTIFUL GARDEN OF PRAYER
There’s a garden where Jesus is waiting,
There’s a place that is wondrously fair,
For it glows with the light of His presence.
’Tis the beautiful garden of prayer.
Oh, the beautiful garden, the garden of prayer!
Oh, the beautiful garden of prayer!
There my Savior awaits, and He opens the gates
To the beautiful garden of prayer.
There’s a garden where Jesus is waiting,
And I go with my burden and care,
Just to learn from His lips words of comfort
In the beautiful garden of prayer.
Oh, the beautiful garden, the garden of prayer!
Oh, the beautiful garden of prayer!
There my Savior awaits, and He opens the gates
To the beautiful garden of prayer.
There’s a garden where Jesus is waiting,
And He bids you to come, meet Him there;
Just to bow and receive a new blessing
In the beautiful garden of prayer.
Oh, the beautiful garden, the garden of prayer!
Oh, the beautiful garden of prayer!
There my Savior awaits, and He opens the gates
To the beautiful garden of prayer.

‘TIS THE BLESSED HOUR OF PRAYER
’Tis the blessèd hour of prayer, when our hearts lowly bend,
And we gather to Jesus, our Savior and Friend;
If we come to Him in faith, His protection to share,
What a balm for the weary, O how sweet to be there!
Blessèd hour of prayer, blessèd hour of prayer,
What a balm for the weary, O how sweet to be there!
’Tis the blessèd hour of prayer, when the Savior draws near,
With a tender compassion His children to hear;
When He tells us we may cast at His feet every care,
What a balm for the weary, O how sweet to be there!
Blessèd hour of prayer, blessèd hour of prayer,
What a balm for the weary, O how sweet to be there!
’Tis the blessèd hour of prayer, when the tempted and tried
To the Savior Who loves them their sorrow confide;
With a sympathizing heart He removes every care;
What a balm for the weary, O how sweet to be there!
Blessèd hour of prayer, blessèd hour of prayer,
What a balm for the weary, O how sweet to be there!
At the blessèd hour of prayer, trusting Him, we believe
That the blessing we’re needing we’ll surely receive;
In the fullness of the trust we shall lose every care;
What a balm for the weary, O how sweet to be there!
Blessèd hour of prayer, blessèd hour of prayer,
What a balm for the weary, O how sweet to be there!

Love and Prayers
