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

Your Authority Has Not Changed

Your Authority Has Not Changed

It is difficult to have the right words to say after deliberate acts of evil. It is heartbreaking to see so many people hurt. We must remember that God is the God of peace, comfort, and hope. As Paul reminds us, God is the “God of all comfort, who comforts and encourages us in every trouble.” I pray that those who have been affected by the violence in Orlando will have that become a reality for them.

May the believers, in particular, find the attributes of the Holy Spirit becoming real to them; He is our Helper, Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor, Counselor, Strengthener, and Standby. We need our family in Christ to have the strength to stand up and be light in the middle of that dark situation!Continue reading
