O, Lord, may YOUR desires become my own
(The only chains a Christian should have are prayer chains)
“…and having done all to stand…”
Standing in the gap for this precious soul
because she needs it
She’s trying to fight things under her own power
that can only be fought through HIS POWER
Loosing the strength to smile, laugh,
feeling like she is going crazy and feeling alone;
She’s forgotten the TREASURE which lies within her
and has walked away from it.
BY, IN, WITH FAITH,
and I dedicate this song to my Princess
These past few days have been very eventful; so much going on in my family, battles seen and unseen making themselves known, but I’m slowly seeing things that I have prayed about for years come to pass. And being reminded that when you start to intercede for others, including family, there will be attacks. Was blindsided yesterday afternoon, it reminded me of Matthew ch 8:23, being in the boat and seeing the waves. There was so much confusion here yesterday, but finally, the waves were calmed, and I realized that some issues are better spoken about the next day, or when the waters are calm, when emotions are not high. I know, DUH! But, there are lessons that I learn all over again. But when the enemy starts messin’, I’ve learned that a blessing for that situation is coming; I just need to learn to be patient while waiting.
Although the enemy has his ways (he does his job), he doesn’t have the last word.
Our walk with the LORD is not going to be easy all the time. Much like a roller coaster, with ups and downs, twits and turns, and only seeing just enough of the track ahead; we need to learn to relax, enjoy the ride because GOD OUR FATHER is in control.
Keep me in your prayers, as I keep all of you in mine…
GOD BLESS YOU ALL
A very important message that we all need to hear. It’s my hope that you get stirred…
Inspired by a post I just finished reading, ”Keep On Prayin’!”, I was reminded about a message I heard Oral Roberts preach years ago concerning prayer, especially for others, entitled, “Hold on to the Rope”; about the Apostle Paul, a few men helped him escape a certain city because his life was in danger. He was lowered over the wall of the city, and a few men held the rope to lower him. And I clearly remember, sitting in my seat listening to this sermon, and hearing him say, “What if the guys said ‘we’re tired, let’s go’, and they let go of the rope, not knowing if Paul had made it to the bottom or not?”
We may get tired or sometimes forget to pray the way we said we would. Maybe we say a quick one on the spot, then put the situation aside because “we have our own things to be worrying about”, right??? And there are some who say “I’ll keep that in prayer with you”, but never follow through with it. We may not see the end of a situation the way we would like to, but that doesn’t mean we should stop praying. Intercession is powerful. There’s something about getting your focus off your own struggles and situations, and praying for others with the same need. It’s as if you’re sowing a seed of “answered prayer”, into your own situation. I’ve seen it happen in my family, heard others testimonies about it time and time again.
Prayer works, when you know who to pray to
