March 3rd 2019 – Holy Spirit Anointed Prayers (Part 2 of 3)

“Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”  (Ephesians 3:14-21)

Here is the second of these Holy Spirit inspired prayers that the Apostle Paul gave us.  This is again one that we can pray for ourselves and for others.  As we pray this prayer, watch and see the Holy Spirit do a work within us and others.

In this prayer Paul is praying for a strengthening with God’s might in our spirit.  I don’t know about you but when my spirit is strong my entire being is full of strength. Paul continues on to ask that Christ might dwell in our hearts by faith and that we would get a full comprehension of the love of Christ, that we would understand the very depth of it, that we would understand how high it is and how deep it is.

If we, or anyone, would ever get a full understanding of the love and grace of God it would make a total and radical change within us. There is so much more in this prayer. These are just a couple thoughts but go ahead and pray this prayer each day for yourself and others.

“If you want to live in the fullness of God’s anointing, fill your mouth with His Word.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, Today, I pray for _______________, and pray this Holy Spirit anointed prayer over them. Father, thank You for opening their eyes as I pray this prayer, that they will see what is available to them in the kingdom of God. I also ask that we would stay obedient in praying for their salvation. Lord God please open us up to sharing Your word, and how You rescued us from bondage of this world. I thank You and praise you for all that you do in my life Lord. In Jesus’ precious name. Amen.

March 2nd 2019 – Holy Spirit Anointed Prayers (Part 1 of 3)

“For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers. I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way. (Ephesians 1:15-23)

Throughout the epistles that the Apostle Paul wrote, we see some of his Holy Spirit inspired prayers. These prayers are full of the power of God and can be prayed for ourselves or for others.  We see in Ephesians 1:15-23, a powerful prayer to help us and others have open eyes to the things of the Spirit.

Paul is praying that God would give us or whoever we’re praying for, a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him.  So many times people’s eyes are closed by demonic influences and it takes real prayer to break these hindrances.  As we pray this prayer over people, we’re asking the Holy Spirit to open their eyes to the things of God.

Do you know someone who seems to be so closed to the things of God?  Pray this prayer over them as often as you can.  Thank God for opening their eyes so their understanding will be enlightened and that they might understand their place in the kingdom of God.  There is no power stronger then the Word of God and these prayers that we’re going to look at in the next few days have the breath of the Spirit upon them. Use them and see what God is going to do.

“Faith is a channel through which the anointing flows.”

Prayer:

I pray for ____________and I am going to pray this Holy Spirit anointed prayer over them.

Heavenly Father, thank you for opening their eyes as I pray this prayer, that they will see what is available to them in the kingdom of God. I pray that you enlighten their heart and that Your Holy Spirit surrounds them and engulfs their very soul. Lord God I also ask that we would stay obedient in praying for their salvation. Lord God please open us up to sharing Your word, and how You rescued us from bondage of this world. We pray this prayer in Jesus’ Holy name. Amen.

February 26th 2019 – Help Is Only a Call Away

“and call on me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honor me.” (Psalm 50:15)

When we go through major disappointments in life, our natural reaction is to pull back and isolate ourselves. We want to handle it ourselves. We want to keep our losses, our failures, our mistakes or  crises a secret. We want to withdraw. It’s is a terrible idea to walk it alone.

When you go through disappointment, crisis or loss. Those are the times when you need to call on God and your friends the most. You need to accept help from others. God doesn’t intend for you to handle all the pain and stress in your life by yourself. We were wired for each other. We need each other. We’re social beings. The first thing God said in the Garden of Eden is, “It’s not good for man (speaking about His creation of humankind) to be alone.” We’re made to be in relationships.

“When desperate people give up on God Almighty, their friends, at least, should stick with them” (Job 6:14)

There will be times in your life when you are in so much pain you will say, “I don’t even believe in God right now!” You need to have friends who will come alongside you and say, “That’s OK. We’ll believe God for you right now.”

There will come a time when you’ll say, “I don’t have any faith right now. I’m full of doubt.” That’s when you need your friends to step in and say, “That’s OK. We will have faith for you. We will trust God for you in this.”

“By helping each other with your troubles, you truly obey the law of Christ” (Galatians 6:2). What is the law of Christ? It’s this: Love your neighbor as yourself. The Bible commands us to help each other. Every time you help somebody who’s going through pain, you are fulfilling the law of Christ.

Trying to handle your trouble yourself will only make you more tired and stressed out.

So don’t run away and hide or ingnore your friends and the ones that love you. You need to accept the help of others and let your friends carry you through it.

Our Lord Jesus is only a call away, And He already knows the trouble your having. He is already calling out to you. Answer His call,

“Give Jesus a try….if you don’t like Him, the enemy will always take you back!”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, Help me trust You in all circumstances in my life. Increase my faith. Help me remember that I am your child and that you love me. Thank You for the people in my life that care about me and are there when I need a friend. I also know that all things are possible in my life, If I would trust in You without doubt, and trust in Your Word.  You said it is true, so I trust, and I believe, and as I do, I will see the results! Thank you for Your presence in my life. In Jesus’ precious name, Amen…

Do you want to experience the kind of Peace and Love that is only found in Jesus? Jesus died on the cross for you. He loves you and wants to help you. He wants to bring peace in your life.

February 25th 2019 – Believe God

“The official pleaded, “Lord, please come now before my little boy dies. Then Jesus told him, “Go back home. Your son will live!”  And the man believed what Jesus said and started home.” (John 4:49-50)

How much stress and trouble could we avoid if we simply did what the father in John chapter 4 did? What if we stopped in the middle of crummy circumstances and sticky situations and chose to believe the Word that Jesus has spoken to us? Many of us read the news online or watch it on tv and believe it. Many of us read stuff on the internet and believe it. We read the Bible and sometimes we think, “Well, that doesn’t apply to me or my situation.”

Sometimes we believe our emotions, fickle though they are, over the Word of God. We listen to the skeptics and the naysayers. We listen to our experiences as well as our faulty interpretation of events. Of all the things that we can listen to and believe, the Word of God is the most reliable. It has proven its sturdiness many times through the centuries. It has outlasted all of its critics and still stands ever faithful and true. Many voices are calling out for your attention. Which one will you choose to act on and believe? I choose to believe Jesus and the Word He has spoken to me.

“Everything is possible for the person who believes!” (Mark 9:23)

“We need to trust God, the Word of God and believe the Bible.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, Thank You for Your steadfast love. Thank You that Your Word has stood the test of time and remains the source of truth and light for every situation in our lives. Please continue this work of opening my heart up to the amazing faithfulness of Your Bible. I pray this in Jesus’ name, Amen.

February 24th 2019 – All Things Are Possible

Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” (Mark 9:23)

When Jesus said all things, did He mean ALL THINGS?  Well, one thing that we have learned from the Word of God is that our Heavenly Father is not a man that He should lie.  If God said it, it is so.  So, with that in mind, we can have confidence in God and His Word.

We must take the Word of God as the Word of God, and know that all things are possible from His Word.  When we look into the Word and find a scripture that promises us something, like healing, then we need to spend the time that it takes to get that Word, or seed, deep into our heart.  We need to give the Word of God the time that it needs to germinate within us.

Just because we read a verse on healing does not mean it is going to grow in one day.

Remember this verse says, “All things are possible to him who believes.”  I need to get His Word into me and into that believing part.  I will say this, I believe that I am saved and no one can take that from me, yet when it comes to healing, when something is fighting my flesh, I let doubt in.

This is the good fight of faith.  This is where the rubber meets the road.  So what do I do to get it to the producing stage?  I meditate on the verses or promises until it becomes real to me, just like salvation is real to me.  When it gets to that place, then I can boldly say, “ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE TO ME BECAUSE I BELIEVE. AMEN!”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, I praise You in all circumstances in my life because I know that I am your child and that you love me. I also know that all things are possible in my life because I believe in You without doubt, and Your Word.  You said it is true, so I trust, and I believe, and as I do, I see results! Thank you for Your presence in my life. In Jesus’ precious name, Amen…

February 21st 2019 – If Heaven Had Visiting Hours

“Therefore you too have grief now; but I will see you again, and your heart will rejoice, and no one will take your joy away from you. (John 16:22)

If Heaven had visiting hours, Today I would clear my schedule. I would leave my phone behind, along with all the other responsibilities that seem so important at times. I’d tell everyone not to worry, that I would be back soon. “I’m going to see my you, my Mom.”

I would pack a bag of things that you liked to eat, not forgetting your favorite sweet rolls. Also a some things to show you that you’ve missed since you’ve been gone.

I would make my way up to Heaven to see you for the first time since July of 2016. After reaching the entrance gates, I’d see you standing there, looking as beautiful as ever, Your eyes clear and gleaming again, no more pain or sadness hiding in them. Your smile is bigger than ever before. All signs of illness are gone. Nothing remains but the look of complete happiness.
I’d hug you tight, never wanting to let go. It’s been too long since I’ve heard you say “I love you”

We’d sit on a bench much like the one at the park in front that old car. We were at Trail Dust town where I took you the last birthday I spent with you. I’d hold your hand and rest my head on your shoulder, much like we did that day – just you and I. I’d tell you stories and Jokes to make you laugh, a sound I’ve missed more than you could ever know.

If Heaven had visiting hours, I’d tell you about it all. I’d tell you about the nights I’ve cried because I miss having you around. I’d tell you about the laughs we have somehow been able to share. Life without you hasn’t been easy, I’m sure you’ve seen it all. However, there have been ups to go along with the downs.

After catching up on all the things that’s happening at home, we could spend the rest of the afternoon doing all the things we used to do when you were still around. I would share with you that I’m still writing the Christian devotions everyday, hoping that you have been able to continue to read them in Heaven.

When the day is over and it’s time for me to go, I’d be so sad to leave you. I’d remind you how much I love you and am trying to make you proud.  I’d give you one more hug, not wanting to let go. But it would be OK, because Heaven would still have visiting hours, and I could just come back again.

February 20th 2019 – Life’s Struggles

“He had attached himself to the governor, Sergius Paulus, a man of considerable insight and understanding. The governor invited Barnabas and Saul to visit him, for he wanted to hear the word of God. But Elymas, the sorcerer (as his name means in Greek), interfered and urged the governor to pay no attention to what Saul and Barnabas said. He was trying to turn the governor away from the Christian faith.” (Acts 13:7-8)

In this story, we see the governor torn between Saul and Barnabas, who meant him well, and Elymas who tried to keep the governor from hearing about God. I believe we can relate to this in the many struggles in our own lives. We want to hear the Word of God, like during a teaching, but sometimes we allow ourselves to be talked out of it.

Some of the things that can make a huge difference in our spiritual growth is reading the bible, going to bible studies and reading devotions. It encourages us, challenges us, and the bible studies allows worship and fellowship with one another. It is obvious why the enemy of our souls would not want us in that kind of environment. He will try to use our friends, family and loved ones to keep us from church, serving, giving, praying and reading the Bible. Above all the noise; however, the voice of Jesus rings true. Come to Him and He will give you rest. The world says ‘get’, Jesus says ‘give’. The world says focus on ‘you’. Jesus says focus on ‘others’ and upon Him. Be careful what voice you listen to. It is very important.

“If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it!”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, Help me to hear Your voice over all the outside noise in my life. Lord, it seems that others in this wotld try to pull me down or keep me in sin. Help me during those weak moments to know what You would say to me. Help me to hear and respond to Your voice and know that I am forgiven. Help me to fellowship with and love others around me. Thank You for continuing to call me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

February 18th 2019 – Be The Example

And I said: “Hear now, O heads of Jacob, And you rulers of the house of Israel: Is it not for you to know justice?” (Micah 3:1)

Today’s society is fast paced and full of busyness. But what are we busy doing? Is it trying to live life with a mission to better ourselves? Any of us who have tried to live this kind of life know that we are never satisfied even when we achieve our goals. If we have a relationship with Jesus, is it not for us to know justice? If we claim to be a follower of Jesus, we have a responsibility to live a Godly life everywhere we go. God has showed us that life is not about us, it’s about knowing Him, loving Him and loving others. If anyone should know that, it is the body of Christ – those who have been forgiven of their sins. Now that God has blessed us with His forgiveness, He desires that we share His love with others. The world needs us to be an example of living the Bible so that they too are drawn to Christ. They need answers, and for us to say we are “Christians” and live our life in pursuit of personal gain would only be a contradiction to who we say we follow.

“Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith… Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves that Jesus Christ is in you? – unless indeed you are disqualified.” (2 Corinthians 13:5-6)

So let’s stand before God often and ask Him to reveal things in our life that are not pleasing to Him. As we do that, the world will not have any stones to throw. They will be drawn to Jesus and living their life for Him just like we should.

“The world is looking for answers, not for hypocrites.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, Thank You for loving me. Thank You for forgiving me of my sins. Help me to live a disciple’s life wherever I go. Please remove those things that are not pleasing to You so others are not confused. Thank You Lord, for using me to change lives for eternity just like you changed mine. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

February 17th 2019 – A God of Love

“Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.” (John 15:13)

What a contrast the love of God is to the so-called “love” of our culture.

Our world loves you when you are young and beautiful; God still loves you when you are old and not so attractive.

Our world loves you when you are famous and a celebrity; God loves still you when you are unknown and a complete nobody.

Our world loves you when you are rich and powerful; God still loves you when you are penniless and weak.

Our world loves the extraordinary. God still loves the ordinary. People like you and me.

And God has demonstrated this love for us in a tangible way. Jesus said, “Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends” (John 15:13)

“Love will find a way. A lack of love will find an excuse. It has no limits”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, Thank You for Your love. Because of Your love for me, I have forgiveness of sins and hope of heaven. Father, fill me with Your Spirit and help me to love others like You love me. Make me more like Jesus so that I can share Your grace and mercy with those around me. Use me today to show love. I praise You for the amazing love, Help me to grasp this love so that I will be equipped to love others in the same way. Strip me of any excuses and use me to reach others with the love of Jesus. In His name, Amen.

February 15th 2019 – Garden of the Heart

“This is what the LORD says to the people of Judah and Jerusalem: ‘Plow up the hard ground of your hearts! Do not waste your good seed among thorns.’” (Jeremiah 4:3)

If you have every planted a garden, you know that seed does not do well on hard ground. No matter how many seeds thrown to the ground, they will just bounce around until they are either eaten or blown away. In order for the seeds to take root and produce fruit, they must actually enter into the ground which means the ground must first be plowed.

Plowing is not easy. It takes time and energy to break open the dry ground in order to expose and prepare the soil underneath. The same is true with our hearts. Apart from God, our hearts are sun dried and barren, but when we begin honestly looking into the Word of God, the Holy Spirit begins plowing our heart so that we will receive the Truths of God. Just like gardening, it can be hard but it is worth the effort. The more we take God’s Word to heart, the more God digs out rocks of sin and pride, while planting great promises. God desires to see our lives filled with the fruit of His Spirit, but we must first be willing to be broken. Don’t fight it, embrace it, and you will find great joy awaiting the other end.

“The Holy Bible is the Word of God and is our source for everything we need to know about God, ourselves and salvation.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, Thank You for Your Word. Thank You for the love that You have shown me and the promise that You can make me new. Give me the strength to trust You as you plow my heart. Open my heart to understanding and my mind to your Truth. Plant in me all that You desire and use me to be a vessel of your grace. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
