PRAYER!!!

Monday be obedient to his word.jpg

 

Have A Wonderful & Blessed Day!!! Prayer!!!

To Some Lack Of Faith Has Become Two Different Issues; James tells us faith shows in our actions, we live by faith Daniel was a Perfect Example he refused to bow to A pagan idol not knowing what would happen, knowing it may be death. However his love, and trust to the LORD was unwavering. When the Doctors took me out of work due to illness, I didn’t argue, I left. Well a “Christian Woman” was angry at me, she felt like I needed to name and claim the illness and continue to work. She said I was letting her, the teachers, and the Students, and the Lord down, NO FAITH. Sometimes faith is allowing the Lord to change the direction of your life and not trusting yourself. Another example of unwavering faith was Joseph who would not go and commit immorality with Potiphar’s wife, regardless of what the outcome and we know he ended up in prison.

James 4:2 Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not.
James 4:3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.
We see in James 4:2&3 We see our prayers fail never because of the Lord but because of us.

Reasons that we fail at our prayers:

⦁ Self-righteousness speech of what “I” have done. Lord can I have this, I have done this, that, and I am always helping, I am always serving, and I deserve this.
⦁ God doesn’t just hear our words he knows our hearts.
⦁ He reads our hearts. If anything is amiss in our relationship, He will convict us, and when He does, we must confess our sin.
⦁ Our motives maybe wrong.
⦁ God will not hear selfish prayers – where I have the attitude, “I want what I want, whether God wants it for me our not.”
⦁ Am I praying in faith.

When we go before our Precious Lord don’t let it be just about us. Praise him, thank him, learn to go before the Lord with praises, and thanksgiving. Did you ever consider the honor and, privilege it truly is going to him in prayer? He is the Mighty God, sinless, perfect, Holy. We are allowed to go before his Holy Throne, saved, but still in this filthy flesh, talk to him, give him our concerns, desires, wants, and just talk to him.

Don’t let your prayers be about your greatness but his greatness. Don’t let your prayers be about gossip, he knows all about everyone, and besides he hates gossip. Don’t let your prayers be about great service to him and others, he knows all we do, and he has a much better memory than we do, and if we are doing it for a big thank you its being done for the wrong reasons. Don’t ever tell him how much money your giving to the local church, he knows how much of HIS money your giving.

God wants to answer prayer. But sometimes He is kept from doing so because of things wrong with us or with our praying. If we need to forgive someone that will have to happen first. What we need to do is persevere in prayer, willing to make whatever adjustments are necessary to get into a position to receive His answer, knowing that whether it is “yes,” “no,” or “wait a while,” it will always be an answer worth receiving!

PRAYER IS SO IMPORTANT. IF YOUR ASKING AMISS FIND OUT WHAT IS WRONG!!!!

FROM EVERY STORMY WIND

From every stormy wind that blows,
From every swelling tide of woes,
There is a calm, a sure retreat;
’Tis found beneath the mercy seat.
There is a place where Jesus sheds
The oil of gladness on our heads;
A place than all besides more sweet;
It is the blood bought mercy seat.
There is a scene where spirits blend,
Where friend holds fellowship with friend;
Though sundered far, by faith they meet
Around one common mercy seat.
There, there, on eagles’ wings we soar,
And time and sense seem all no more;
And heaven comes down, our souls to greet,
And glory crowns the mercy seat.
Oh, let my hand forget her skill,
My tongue be silent, cold, and still,
This bounding heart forget to beat,
If I forget the mercy seat!

I AM PRAYING FOR YOU
I have a Savior, He’s pleading in glory,
A dear, loving Savior though earth friends be few;
And now He is watching in tenderness o’er me;
And oh, that my Savior were your Savior, too.
For you I am praying,
For you I am praying,
For you I am praying,
I’m praying for you.
I have a Father; to me He has given
A hope for eternity, blessèd and true;
And soon He will call me to meet Him in Heaven,
But, oh, that He’d let me bring you with me, too!
For you I am praying,
For you I am praying,
For you I am praying,
I’m praying for you.
I have a robe; ’tis resplendent in whiteness,
Awaiting in glory my wondering view;
Oh, when I receive it all shining in brightness,
Dear friend, could I see you receiving one, too!
For you I am praying,
For you I am praying,
For you I am praying,
I’m praying for you.
When Jesus has found you, tell others the story,
That my loving Savior is your Savior, too;
Then pray that your Savior may bring them to glory,
And prayer will be answered—’twas answered for you!
For you I am praying,
For you I am praying,
For you I am praying,
I’m praying for you.
Speak of that Savior, that Father in Heaven,
That harp, crown, and robe which are waiting for you—
That peace you possess, and that rest to be given,
Still praying that Jesus may save them with you.
For you I am praying,
For you I am praying,
For you I am praying,
I’m praying for you.

Love and Prayers
Cheryl
