Build a Room for Him

Build a Room for Him

The Spirit Whom He has caused to dwell in us yearns over us and He yearns for the Spirit [to be welcome] with a jealous love. (James 4:5 Amp.)

​It really shouldn’t surprise us that God responds in a special way when we desire not just His gifts, but His presence. After all, God (in all three of His expressions as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) is a person, and just as every person does, He enjoys being valued and prized. He yearns to be treasured and welcomed in our hearts. When we do what it takes to make Him welcome, wonderful things begin to happen.

​What, exactly, does it take to make Him feel welcome?Continue reading

Receive Fresh Direction From Heaven

Receive Fresh Direction From Heaven

When we abide in Jesus, His Words come alive in our hearts. He quickens specific Words to us by the Holy Spirit. Sometimes He puts a particular verse on the inside of us. As we fellowship with Him over those Words, somehow He cooks them up and expands them inside us until they become an outflow of prayer. They become the perfect spiritual weapon for the prayer battle we are facing. They become the exact tool we need to accomplish what God wants us to do.

God Needs You to Persevere in Prayer

God Needs You to Persevere in Prayer

Now more than ever, God is needing people to persevere in prayer. He wants you to courageously persevere like the widow Jesus described in Luke chapter 18 who prayed without fainting and refused to lose heart or give up. That widow didn’t have a loving, heavenly Father to turn to like we do when we pray. She was dealing with a wicked judge who neither feared God nor respected man, yet she kept coming to him and saying:

Avenge me of mine adversary. And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man; yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me. And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith. And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? (verses 3-8)Continue reading

Prayer for America

Prayer for America

Father, in the name of Jesus, and according to your Word, we pray for those in authority in our nation. We lift up President Donald Trump, his family, his staff and cabinet members. Let Your Word cling to them and let them not depart from your plan. Strengthen them with mighty power by your Spirit to stand against wickedness, lies and deception.

Guide President Trump’s decisions; let Your light shine upon his path and show him the path of reversal for every evil way. Continually surround him with godly men and women who impart wise counsel to him.

Cause the way of the wicked to be set to confusion and come to nothing. Deliver us from the traps and snares the enemy has laid for us, and let the wicked be caught in their own devises and be brought to shame. We take authority over the plots and plans of the enemy against this nation. Let prideful and lying lips be silenced in Jesus’ name. Slanderers will not be established in America.Continue reading
