I am… 1 5/5 (1)

I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.

I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,

Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.

And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks;

And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.
(See Revelation 1:1-20 KJV)

The Bible says “… good conscience toward God.” 1 5/5 (1)

1 Peter 3:15-21 King James Version (KJV) says:

15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:

16 Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.

17 For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing.

18 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:

19 By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison;

20 Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.

21 The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ…

And the Lord heard the voice of Elijah. 1 5/5 (2)

And it came to pass after these things, that the son of the woman, the mistress of the house, fell sick; and his sickness was so sore, that there was no breath left in him.

And she said unto Elijah, What have I to do with thee, O thou man of God? art thou come unto me to call my sin to remembrance, and to slay my son?

And he said unto her, Give me thy son. And he took him out of her bosom, and carried him up into a loft, where he abode, and laid him upon his own bed.

And he cried unto the Lord, and said, O Lord my God, hast thou also brought evil upon the widow with whom I sojourn, by slaying her son?

And he stretched himself upon the child three times, and cried unto the Lord, and said, O Lord my God, I pray thee, let this child’s soul come into him again.

And the Lord heard the voice of Elijah; and the soul of the child came into him again, and he revived.

A Reminder: The great Prayer Process for Christians and Bible Believers to know. 1 5/5 (1)

If you are someone who believes in the Christian Bible and praying, then the following information will be of great help to you and others.

There is a process we can all follow when praying to achieve real results. The process include some Christian Bible Scriptures that are relevant to the pattern presented here. During your personal prayer session, if you spend five minutes, for example, praying with each point mentioned in this presentation in mind, then you will most likely have spent about 60-70 minutes in praying in during your prayer session.

Praise. In the Christian Bible, Psalms 34 verse 1, Psalm 63 verse 3 and Psalm 150 verse 6 in the Old Testament refer to this point. You will also see related information at Hebrews 13 verse 15 in the New Testament. Praise simple refers to starting your prayer session with praise to Jesus.

Kingdom Praying. We can find a related scripture for this point at Matthew 6 verse 33 in the Bible. Basically, this means paying more attention to the priorities of the Church or Christian Ministry rather than on our own needs. By doing so, we can expect God to help us solve our human daily problems or needs because we have taken care of his Church needs first.

Forgiveness and Confession of Sins. Read Matthew 6 verses 14-15 and Psalms 139 verses 23-24 for related scriptures on this point. Pastors and Church Leaders will often tell Christians that an unforgiving mind-set or spirit will most certainly hinder us from receiving answers to our own prayers.

Petition. According to this point, some will say prayers of petition should always include willingness to accept God’s will, even if he answers the prayer or not. Read Matthew 6 verses 9-13 and James 4 verses 2-3 for related scriptures. For my experience, the will of God must always prevail over all prayer requests base on human knowledge, current situation or experience.

Intercession. This is similar to Kingdom Praying mentioned above. Matthew 9 verses 37-38 and I Timothy 2 verses 1-2 have helpful scriptural information about this point. Intercession is simply about praying for the needs of others, for example, the poor, homeless, sick, unemployed and others.

Bible Reading. For my experience, some have found this to be unusual or surprising during a prayer session. However, if we read 2 Timothy 3 verse 16 we will discover that this should not be so. If you are a regular bible reader, you will know or eventually discover, that God can and will speak to Believers through his divine word – the Christian Holy Bible.

Meditation. Many people I know like this very much. Some even prefer to do this than pray at all. Psalms 1 verses 1-2 and Psalms 77 verse 12 have more information on this. Meditation is just quiet focusing on and dwelling on the things in your life that are related to the bible and why we need to pray. From meditation, we can achieve greater insight, knowledge understanding of many issues that may be bothering us.

Thanksgiving. We know that praise is important but so is thanksgiving. This is focusing on all things that we are thankful for in our lives and that of our families, neighbors and friends. This often include things that are not pleasant because the Bible says we are to give thanks for all things at all times.

Praying the Word of God. I have always given special attention to doing this during my time to pray. Praying the word of God from the bible is very powerful praying because we are saying what God said or what was stated through his apostles, prophets and others from the Old and New Testaments. Read John 15 verse 7 for scriptural related information. By praying the word, we can repeat and claim God’s divine promises to all humans and Christians for our situations in life.

Singing. This is another unusual point during our prayer time. However, the famous scripture Psalm 100 verse 1 and Ephesians 5 verses 19 will help us understand why we do this. At our Church, we often sing at the start of our Services to invite the presence of God in our hearts and minds. Therefore, it helps to do likewise in our special private prayer session.

Listening. We often focused on praying for what we want or desire, for others needs and and so. However, very few of us really listen to hear from God after we pray. This is not a simple matter. It will require a sincere heart and mind that is focused on really hearing from God and accepting what he will say to our minds or hearts from our praying. Read 1 Kings 19 verses 11-12 for information.

Praise. As it was in the beginning, so it should be towards the end of our prayer session. Read Matthew 6 verse 13 for more information. After we have done all of the above, we again need to praise God for his presence and blessings in our lives.

In ending, some may not follow the exact process above when praying. However, when we do it will produce better results. At no time can we pray without confessing our sins and with forgiveness in our hearts. We must learn to listen to God and accept his will in from our answered prayers.
AMEN.

“Prayer That Gets Results…” 1 5/5 (1)

I bet if I surveyed this audience most of you would conclude that your prayers are often ineffective. You seldom see results or answers that are as clear as you’d like them to be.

In 1996, a man visiting Stockholm stood to inherit a million dollars, according to a newspaper account. He had stopped off to pray at a church and signed the guest book of a man whose body lay there in a coffin. He was later notified that the deceased had died without heirs and had specified that “whoever prays for my soul gets all my belongings.” Don’t you wish your prayers yielded results like that?

Maybe you’ve wondered if God is even listening. Perhaps you feel like former president Franklin Roosevelt. He often endured long receiving lines and complained that no one really paid attention to what he said. One day he decided to try an experiment. To each person who came down the line he murmured, “I murdered my grandmother today.” The guests responded in typical fashion with phrases like, “Marvelous! Keep up the good work!” It wasn’t until the end of the line, while greeting the ambassador from Bolivia, that his words were actually heard. Unrattled, the ambassador leaned over and said, “I’m sure she had it coming.”

Truth be known, that’s the way a lot of us feel. We’re more surprised when our prayers yield answers that when they don’t. I guess When you think of what prayer really is it’s astounding that we’d get and answer at all. Ambrose Bierce once said that to pray was … “To ask that the laws of the universe be annulled in behalf of a single petitioner confessedly unworthy.”

What I want you to understand is that unanswered prayer should be the exception and not the norm. We were created by a God who is more willing to answer us than we are to ask him. As it turns out, that’s the biggest problem with prayer … us.

Jesus taught his followers the characteristics of effective prayer. If you want to pray and see results then begin to apply his advice.

1. It’s aimed at something specific.

Often times we see no results because we ask for nothing specific. When we pray we tend to generalize and not ask God what we really need.

“How often have we prayed, ’O Lord, be with cousin Billy now in a special way’? Have we stopped to consider what it is we’re requesting? Imagine you are a parent preparing to leave your children with a babysitter. Would you dream of saying, ’O Betsy, I ask you now that you would be with my children in a special way?’ No way! You would say, ’Betsy, the kids need to be in bed by 9pm. They can have one snack before their baths, and please make sure they finish their homework. You can reach us at this number if there’s any problem.’ We are very specific with our requests and instructions for our babysitters. We want them to know specifics. It should be no different with prayer.”

Whatever you want God to do for you or another person, ask specifically. It’s not a petty matter to God. He is intimately interested in the details of your life. Pray specifically. After all, how can God prove to you He’s answered unless it’s specific?

2. It’s approached with confidence.

In Luke 11 is the story of the man who woke his neighbor to borrow bread. Notice the reason given for the man getting his request granted by his neighbor. It was because of their friendship, but because of the man’s endless asking. (Luke 11:7-8)

He was bold. It took a lot of guts to do this. In ancient times most homes had only one room. On one end was a raised platform where everybody slept together – husband, wife, and all the children. Not only did the entire family sleep in this one room, so did all the livestock. The other fellow would have to get up, possibly wake up his wife and kids, stir up the animals, light a lamp, go unlock and open the door and give the man some bread.

The one knocking was confident because he knew his neighbor’s reputation was on the line. Remember, hospitality was a huge deal at that period of history and he didn’t want to lose good standing in the community. Jesus’ point isn’t that He will do things grudgingly because his reputation is on the line. Rather, He teaches us that we can be confident in prayer because of God’s character. He is compassionate and gracious and loving. He wants to answer our prayers.

So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it” (Hebrews 4:16). Ask specifically and ask confidently because God cares for your needs.

3. It’s applied with persistence.

Most often we don’t see results in our prayer life simply because we give up too soon. “And so I tell you, keep on asking, and you will be given what you ask for. Keep on looking, and you will find. Keep on knocking and the door will be opened. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And the door is opened to everyone who knocks” (Luke 11:9-10 NLT).

Jesus’ point is that the persistent seekers find what they’re looking for. They find answers. Let me point out, however, that we don’t always get what we ask for. We will always get an answer if we ask, seek and knock, but it may not be the answer that we want.

There’s a misconception that prayer is simply getting God to give you what you want. Actually prayer is a means by which God changes us. If we’re persistent he shapes us to want what he wants. He actually gives us the desire to want what right when we seek him in this way.

Pray specifically. Pray confidently. Pray persistently.

4. Its answer is appropriated through trust.

The thing that you’ve got to know is that God is not like a genie. He’s not some malicious tightwad in the sky either. Our heavenly Father is a perfectly loving Father, who always has our best interest at heart. He’s on our side. He’s pulling for us. He wants to meet our needs more than we really understand.

If you have kids think about how you love to meet their needs. God is the same way, but to a greater degree. He’s a perfect parent who gives us the absolute best. Why? He loves us. It’s for this reason that we can trust him. Effective prayer derives from a trust in the character of our and build on that same trust.

Prayer that gets results can be the norm in your life rather than the exception. Commit yourself to pray specifically, confidently and persistently. Entrust yourself to a heavenly Father who loves and cares for you more than you could ever dare to dream.

Know the “ABC Essentials ON A Path of Prayer by Lori Wagner.” Like 5/5 (1)

The following guide is a navigational tool for an intimate prayer journey. It offers direction, however, feel free to divert from the suggested path and follow as the Spirit leads.

A: ACKNOWLEDGE God, the Father of creation—His sovereignty, His majesty. ACCESS His presence through praise. ASK Him to lead you in this time of prayer.

“Lord, teach us to pray” (Luke 11:1).
“In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths” (Proverbs 3:6).

C: CONFESS your failures, frailty, and sins, as well as your dependence on God. Humble yourself, but then see yourself as forgiven and restored (in the same condition as Adam or Eve before sin yet living in a world in need of God). Then COME boldly to prayer free from sin, guilt, and shame knowing Jesus enjoys your confident approach.

“O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive; O Lord, hearken and do; defer not, for thine own sake, O my God: for thy city and thy people are called by thy name” (Daniel 9:19).

“Delight thyself also in the LORD: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart” (Psalm 37:4).
“Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets” (Amos 3:7).
E: EXPRESS your prayers in English. Pray with understanding for known needs such as spiritual and emotional healing, illnesses, relationship issues, and financial concerns. Be EXPLICIT with your requests, and remember to include church and secular leadership.

“Give us this day our daily bread” (Matthew 6:11).
“I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty” (1 Timothy 2:1–2).
