March 4th 2019 -Holy Spirit Anointed Prayers (Part 3 of 3)

“For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light. For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.” (Colossians 1:9-17)

This is another Holy Spirit prayer that can be prayed for yourself or someone else.

Again, we see that the Apostle Paul is praying that they might be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding.  God wants us to know His will.  His will is His Word. When we take time to read the Word of God, the Bible, and to read good books by strong men and women of God, we get an understanding of the mind of God.

Then, as we pray prayers like this, it opens us up to receive from the Word that we’ve read.  There are times when I read the bible and don’t get as much out of it.  Then there are times that I read it and I say, “Wow! Was that always in there?”  Sometimes this also happens as I listen the anointed teachings of His word from men and women of God.

God has set people in the church to help us learn and to help us get an understanding of the Word. However, we cannot just lean on them.  We have to take time to read the Word for ourselves as well, and ask Him to give us the understanding that we need.

So today, start praying these Holy Spirit prayers that we looked at the last three days, over yourself and others, and see what happens.  See yourself coming into a new place in God.  See yourself seeing things from the Word that you never saw before.  Remember, it all starts with a prayer and the Holy Spirit has placed these powerful prayers in the scriptures for you and for me.

“Miracles always flow in the river of the anointing.”

Prayer:

Today, I pray this Holy Spirit anointed prayer for _______________.

Heavenly Father, thank you for opening their eyes as I pray this prayer.  Thank you that they will see what is available to them in the kingdom of God. Thank you for being so incredibly passionate about us Lord. Thank you for not only your continous pursuit of me but also of ___________. I acknowledge that You, and only You are my one true God. I will never forget your sacrifice on the cross,  it is why I get to live this life I have today. I submit my life to You.  In Your precious name,  Amen.

January 18th 2019 – Prayer Is Powerful

“Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.” (Jeremiah 33:3)

Prayer is powerful! God hears all of our prayers, and He delights in receiving our raw, honest, passionate prayers. Prayer is key to touching God’s heart, you have the power to impact God’s heart! Many struggle with praying because they feel that their intercession is not much more than empty cries to an invisible God, who most is the time seems distant. But remember: What goes up must come down! Sometimes we can feel like our prayers shoot only as high as the ceiling and then bounce back unheard and unanswered. But God loves being in relationship with you. He promises that He will hear us and answer, because that is what friends and family do for each other. Relationships are built through spending time together and enjoying each other’s company. God made us to be in relationship with Him, and He absolutely loves it when we spend time praying and talking with Him.

As we approach God, we must remember that our ultimate goal in prayer is not to submit request and wait to have our prayers answered, but to encounter God Himself. We do not want to treat Him like a slot machine that produces goods at our will. We are in a relationship, where fellowship and intimacy are not based upon the number of hours we “put in” with God. Rather, intimacy is the time we spend with God. Prayer cannot just be storming the gates of Heaven with a list of requests. It is an incredible honor to rest in the knowledge that the omnipotent, ever-powerful God of the Universe has one joy above all others, and that is to spend time with YOU! Prayer is the overflow of intimacy with God. As we spend time with Him in worship and thanksgiving, resting in His presence, we are refreshed in the knowledge of what Christ has done for us and the love God has for us. Our prayers become part of a continual conversation with Him as we partner with His good will for our lives and the lives around us.

Spend some time with God, focusing simply on enjoying His company. In this time, share with Him the desire of your heart.

“Our prayers are powerful and effective to touch God’s heart and to destroy anything that stands in the way of His Kingdom coming.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, I want to have a passion for Your presence. Please remove from me any fear of being passionately set apart for You. I ache to know You more! Teach me to pray the prayers that stir Your heart. I want to minister to You in my devotional life. I want my heart to bless Your heart and give You the love that You deserve! Help me to hear from You according to Your word and allow You to speak into my life and commune with You always. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

December 2nd 2018 – A Potent Prayer Life

“But when Daniel learned that the law had been signed, he went home and knelt down as usual in his upstairs room, with its windows open toward Jerusalem. He prayed three times a day, just as he had always done, giving thanks to his God.” (Daniel 6:10)

We often hear people talk about this thing called prayer. We may toss it out as a blessing to folks who are going through a difficulty or when a sudden need crops up. None of that is wrong, but a good question to ask ourselves is how we can have a potent prayers. Most of all, an effective life of prayer where we experience authentic intimacy where we genuinely hunger, thirst, and actually experience fellowship with the living God.

There is a lot we can lean from the prayer life of Daniel the prophet. You see, Daniel was consistent and faithful for more than 70 years of his life in prayer. He prayed according to God’s word, humbled himself on his knees, had a set appointment three times a day without distraction to pray, and he gave thanks to God for all God had blessed him with. He prayed not only because of any specific trial, but because he had a real relationship with God as a priority.

We can get easily distracted from prioritizing our time with the Lord. Prayer becomes something we only do in a crisis, but in order for us to have a real relationship with God we need to give him the rightful place and time in our lives.

(1 Peter 4:7) The end of the world is coming soon. Therefore, be earnest and disciplined in your prayers.

“Our prayer life shouldn’t be relegated to just crisis control. It’s meant to be consistent communion and connection with Christ.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father,  please give me the grace to make and keep time set aside to worship, connect, and dialogue with You in prayer. Please forgive me when I push aside that time and donít take it seriously. Help me to hear from You according to Your word and allow You to speak into my life that I might commune with You always. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
