I am willing to make an investment of listening in prayer. The investment of time is a surrender of my heart and a yielding of my life.
Many become frustrated living in a dark world, seeming to grow darker by the day. But His Light will seek His own, and through them His Light will spread.
A good friend asked me, “If Jesus is continually in intercession for me, don’t I want to know what Jesus is praying to the Father about me?”
I had a revelation about prayer being an investment with a major ROI. It isn’t as if it's our motivation to pray but it is certainly the reward for praying.
Prayer and sovereignty are uniquely entwined while appearing to be seemingly contradictory. So if God is sovereign, what is the purpose of prayer?
If we define our reality by our current circumstances, we are set up to be offended. Faith trusts that God is good, regardless of my circumstances.
Faith in prayer is standing for heaven to manifest itself on earth, based on what we see IN heaven.
When I join Jesus, praying what He gives me to pray, I am then in the flow of the Spirit and the will and purpose of God. That’s where I really want to be!
When we hear that someone we love is unwell, how many of you (like me!) tend to immediately pray for healing and just assume that God blesses that prayer?
Could this era of anarchy, hatred, and rebellion simply be the foundation for the revival for which we have been praying?
God has a purpose in bringing hateful people into our lives and it's not to harbor offenses in hatred and unforgiveness. We are to witness love.
The Lord’s Prayer is perhaps the most famous passage of scripture after John 3:16. But I too often mistake memorization with knowing – or even mastery.
