What Is Prayer

What Is Prayer

 

My dear friends one cold day while I was waiting for my husband and daughter at the swimming pool,

Sipping my cappuccino, I was contemplating in my mind about prayer

What is the word called prayer mean

Let us look at the word PRAYER more closely

 

Patiently wait for answers from the Lord to come to fulfilment

Read the Word of God and speak God’s promises back to the Lord

Ask God for things you need in line with the Bible promises

Yesterday’s sins are forgiven so now there is no condemnation in prayer

Erase wrong thoughts and entertain God’s word in your mind

Rightly seek righteousness so that we can be what the Lord wants us to be .

 

My dear friends prayer is not just asking the Lord for things, prayer is not penance like doing good things though there is nothing wrong in doing it

 

Prayer is falling at the feet of Jesus saying God I am nothing,

God I have nothing, God I will be nothing without you, please help me, forgive me and bless me.

 

Yes friends seek the Blesser and not the blessing

Seek the giver and not the gift, seek God let his love fall all over you and erase the bad things in your life, He loves you, cares for you and his arms are open for you.

He died on that cruel cross so that you can be saved

Let us pray

Dear loving God and heavenly father, I come to you as a sinner, please come into my heart forgive me of my sin and come into my heart in Jesus name AMEN

This New Year Prayer

Unknown

To love unconditionally

To laugh uncontrollably

To live simply

To breath naturally

To be who you are made to be

To worship spiritually

To give thanks for all the above

Lord this new year let me shine as a light

To bring you joy and delight

Let your love in me all negativity fight

My Lord to you I give this new year

Take away all fear

In you and for you

Make my mission clear

Thank you for wiping away every tear

You are my maker

The potter who moulds me with every prayer

This year to you make me near

Thank you my precious Lord and Saviour Amen

Impossible Dream

Dearest sweet munchkins , hi how are you all today ? Well darlings this week has been a revelation for me. Yes darlings the light has dawned, the sun has risen on my confused mind, the fuse of the light bulb in my mind has started working and yes I know as I know, as I know, as I know as that the world is connected by media and words and technology  that one thing going around the world is the gospel and Jesus is Lord.

I have suffered from depression for some time.I am small in stature 5 feet 3 inches, am Indian, a wife and a mother we do not have much materially but I am contented though there  are  a few things I would really love for my family, I may get these things in this life or I may not but seeing my daughter’s face every morning makes life worthwhile.

I do not wish this depression on anyone as at times it has been too hard to bear but God has been with me and helped me choose Life over death. So let us live life to the fullest Darwin wrote about survival of the fittest but I believe to be fit you have to be mentally strong so I would say not the physically fit but the mentally fit have a better advantage of this world.

So let us have a strong forehead and soft heart to live in this world.

Lots of love n prayers the Indian Aunty

PRAYER

 

What is prayer?  Prayer, I believe, is our communion with the Almighty.  There are numerous ways of communion with the Almighty.  The bible says when my saints shall humble themselves and pray then shall I forgive their sins and heal their land.  This is what this essay is all about.  Our intercession and supplication laid before our heavenly Father.

 

There are different kinds of prayer.  One of the main points is praying in the holy ghost and having the spirit of God direct us in our prayer.  Secondly, praying with faith as Mark 11:24 praying with faith is believing with faith we have received the answers to our prayers according to the will of God.  Praying with thanksgiving we must learn to thank God for our answers (Luke 17:17).

 

Prayer is petition (John 16:23-24).  God is our Provider.  He is Jehovah Jireh as John 16:23-24 tells us.  We must learn to ask according to the will of God.  Once in our home, when I was about 9 years old, we were living in Singapore during that time.  We had no food in our home so we decided to pray for food.  Miraculously, the next day, a lady from our prayer group came home with large packets of food because as she and her friend were praying, God gave her a vision of our empty refrigerator and told her and her friend to fill it up.  God is good.  We petitioned God and He answered our prayer.

 

Prayer is intercession.  Intercession is when we share the burden of Christ for a person, circumstance or need anywhere in the world.  We have become partakers of Christ’s suffering.

 

Prayer                          Need in               God’s love

Answered                    the world            and feelings

Get the                        or an                   for that

Victory                         individual            particular

Need or emotion

 

God places the

Burden in the

Heart of the

Intercessor

For that particular

Need or individual

 

Therefore, intercessor fills the bridge between Christ and the need.  Through Christ gaining victory in prayer.  Prayer is therefore praise and worship, waiting on God, confession, intercession, petition and thanksgiving.

 

In conclusion I would like to say that God has bestowed on us this awesome gift of communing with our Creator, thanking our Provider, worshipping our Creator, loving our Heavenly father and listening to Him.  Above all, experiencing His love and growing to be more like Him.

A Humble Prayer

This song is sung for the underprivileged people around the world here in the west we must be so thankful for running water, shelter and food above all God who watches over us. Many people in the third world have nothing but we can give them hope not just by financial help but by prayer as well. God help the poor, the down trodden, abused women May Our Great God be ever present in there lives as he is in ours.

Is God’s Calling Like Tennis?

Jeremiah 1:5 Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.

God Almighty is Omniscient all knowing, Omnipotent all powerful, Omnipresent present everywhere.

What I am trying to say could be a bit controversial but I am going to say it anyway. Omniscient God knows who will accept Him and who will reject Him and our Omnipotent God speaks to individuals in very many ways.To give them an opportunity to accept Him as Savior of their lives but it is up to the individual to either accept Him or reject Him.

God never gives up on those who reject His call.Like a tennis ball God keeps hitting the next player with opportunities to accept Him and it is up to the player to accept God and serve God with prayer or he can just let the ball go out of bounds and reject God.

So you learn two things through this illustration accept Jesus when He speaks to you and the second is very important I know nothing about tennis but it was a good illustration anyway.

John3:16 says For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but shall have everlasting life.

God wants none to perish and all in heaven.Like Reinhard Bonnke says” Plunder hell and populate Heaven”

It is up to us to make a decision to where we want to spend everlasting life. Never underestimate God’s power and authority. If we are stubbern in our old sinful ways there is nothing God can do.

So give God a chance to change your life around and watch Him transform you and make you  a new and righteous individual.

Lets pray

Dear Heavenly Father we come to you in the name of your son Jesus please come into my heart, change me, mold me and make me the individual you want me to be. Please do forgive me of my sins and help me to forgive those who have sinned against me.I accept your call in my life. Thank you for choosing me before the foundation of the world. I love you and honor you as Lord and Savior of my life. In the name of your precious son Jesus I pray.

Amen

Who Am I

WHO AM I

Who am I

That thought in my heart I ponder

What am I meant to be

Oh God, the future I just can’t foresee

Yet you care for me

You didn’t just let me be

You have a plan and a purpose

Thy word is the key

I came into the world a little seed

Curious about the world so mysterious

Bombarded with emotions hilarious

At times delirious, at other times furious

As I started to grow and mature to the tree I was meant to be

I faced the storms of life

Into temptations I was tossed

Yet through thy divine grace at Calvary

To temptations I was no longer held in slavery

You set me free, enabling me to grow in sanctity

Your word says, you shall bear fruit in season

Seasons have come and seasons have gone

Oh God I feel so alone, why was I ever born

Yet you on me never did frown

The veil to enter the holy of holies was torn

By thy divine blood on the cross which was no loss

At thy feet I place my supplication

Oh Christ, on me make a divine transformation

This season, let me see my life has a reason

Let me bear fruit at a dozen

Change my heart, my attitude

As I grow and mature in thy altitude

As I pray I feel thy presence come as a ray

I feel the power of thy awesome presence like rain on me does spray

Father when will you use me, is it today?

I feel the rain come on me washing all my doubts and fears without a trace

Speaking to me through a gentle breeze

Thy love for me will never cease

I hear thy voice saying my plans for you will be fulfilled come what may

All you have to do, daughter is to pray
