The Importance Of Prayer

Colossians 4:2

Devote yourselves to prayer; stay alert in it with thanksgiving.

Prayer keeps us humble and reminds us of our dependency on the Lord. When we don’t pray we start to sever our connection with God and become prideful by relying on ourselves rather than Him. Prayer to the Lord reinforces our commitment to Him and gives us a burst of hope to continue in our walk with the Lord. Thankfulness in prayer brings Him glory and keeps this thought fresh in our minds: All that I have God has provided. Prayer keeps us alert and awake so that we won’t fall into sin. Prayer keeps our relationship with Lord burning. If we stop praying that relationship will start to die off. Reading the Bible and praying is like breathing. Stop breathing and you will die, likewise, if you stop reading the Bible and stop praying your faith will start to die.

Can You Include These Folks In Your Prayers List?

 

call-to-prayer

I would like to ask my brothers and sisters in Christ to help me pray for these folks.


Nabeel Qureshi who has cancer and is dying. He used to be a Muslim who became a follower of Jesus Christ. He was with Ravi Zacharias ministries until his diagnosis. He is 34 years old with a wife and one child. Ask the Lord on his behalf to heal him, nothing is too hard for Jesus Christ who raised the dead after four days, wiped out diseases by His Word and etc.


Donald Norris who has a wonderful blog called “My Heart is for Israel” asked, “we are going on a road trip in two weeks, I would ask prayers for travel mercies.” Ask the Lord to protect him and those with him that they may get to their destination and back safely.


Joshua Reid a.k.a God’s Warrior who has a great blog called “Taking Up My Cross” asked, “I would like continuing prayer for spiritual strength against the temptation of sexual sin.”


My personal request

My wife needs a car so she can go while I’m at work to take care of certain priorities that need to be done during the day. Also, pray for me and my family that we may continue to be faithful to God’s Word.


If anyone else wants to be included with a prayer request, it’s not too late. Request a prayer and I will update my post by including your request in it. May the Lord bless you all.

James 5:16

16 Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, so that you may be healed. The urgent request of a righteous person is very powerful in its effect.

Prayer Requests

One of the greatest weapons we can use against the enemy is prayer

 

Sometimes I forget that I’m not the only one going through spiritual battles and difficulties. There are so many Christians who are being tempted to commit a sexual sin, mentally attacked with depression, being attacked with false doctrine, being distracted so as to keep them away from reading the Bible or praying and the list goes on and on.

I would like to ask for all those who are in Christ who are going through a tough time, can you send me your prayer requests?

I would like to pray for all of you and post on my blog your requests so the rest of the believers may see it and also pray on your behalf.

This is a time to come together and pray for those who are hurting and going through difficult circumstances.

Ephesians 6:18

18 Pray at all times in the Spirit with every prayer and request, and stay alert in this with all perseverance and intercession for all the saints.

A Prayer For All On WordPress, Happy New Year!

prayer-pic-11

I would like to say a prayer not only to those who are kind enough to read my posts but to those who haven’t.

Father in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, first of all, Lord I ask you for my brothers and sisters in Christ. May You Lord bless them this New Year with spiritual strength to combat the demonic forces which they will try to tempt them to sin against You. I pray Lord God for their protection and their well being for 2017. Use them mightily for Your kingdom, to bring people to Jesus for eternal life by putting their faith in Him.

Now O Lord I ask You for those in WordPress that don’t have a personal relationship with You yet. I ask You O Lord that You may use one of the believer’s posts in WordPress to bring them to a saving faith in Jesus. I ask You all this in Jesus’ name Amen.

This is a new year of a new walk with the Lord in righteousness, may we walk according to His righteous Word.

If I have ever offended a brother and sister in Christ without being aware of it, you have my sincere apology and may the Lord unite all the Christians as one so that we may stand against false doctrines of Satan and his lies. We must stand on the Truth and the Truth alone, God bless you all.

Prayer, A Mighty Weapon

There’s a lot of demonic activities happening today, we must seek God in prayer for strength. 

I would like to challenge every Christian who reads this post to incorporate the prayer below into their daily prayers for 30 days.


jesus-is-our-anchor

The Prayer:

“LORD keep me anchored in the straight path of righteousness. Your anchor protects me from the windstorms which push me to go either to the right or to the left. I know LORD that Your anchor will keep me steady, protect me Lord in Jesus’ name Amen.”


God’s Word is our anchor that teaches us how to stay on the right path of our Lord Jesus Christ. If you cut that anchor from your life, there’s no way to determine how spiritually corrupt you will end up. We live in dangerous times and as Christians, the Truth should be our number one priority. We must live according to it because without it, those dear to us will stay in darkness. You might be the only spiritual light that they will ever have. They desperately need your help. Take them to Jesus before it’s too late or their darkness will become their eternal reality.

 Ephesians 5:15-18

15 Pay careful attention, then, to how you walk—not as unwise people but as wise— 16 making the most of the time, because the days are evil. 17 So don’t be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is. 18 And don’t get drunk with wine, which leads to reckless actions, but be filled by the Spirit
