#21daysofprayer and beyond 🙏#prayfirst Genuine heartfelt repentance and prayer is the pathway to restoration.

Pray for all who lead and are in authority first.

Repent. Turn. Change your mind, your heart, and your direction. Return to the Lord with ALL your heart.  

Fast, weep, and experience fellowship with the Lord restored. God is merciful above all others, and loves us ALL like no other.  He is a God of restoration and The Restorer of ALL things – hearts, souls, lands, and nations. 
The first thing I want you to do is pray. Pray every way you know how, for everyone you know. Pray especially for rulers and their governments to rule well so we can be quietly about our business of living simply, in humble contemplation. This is the way our Savior God wants us to live. He wants not only us but everyone saved, you know, everyone to get to know the truth we’ve learned: that there’s one God and only one, and one Priest-Mediator between God and us—Jesus, who offered himself in exchange for everyone held captive by sin, to set them all free. Eventually the news is going to get out. This and this only has been my appointed work: getting this news to those who have never heard of God, and explaining how it works by simple faith and plain truth. Since prayer is at the bottom of all this, what I want mostly is for men to pray—not shaking angry fists at enemies but raising holy hands to God. And I want women to get in there with the men in humility before God, not primping before a mirror or chasing the latest fashions but doing something beautiful for God and becoming beautiful doing it. 1 Timothy 2:1-10 (The Message)

The Year of More Glory #2017

img_3285
 
I believe in my heart and spirit that 2017 will be a year of God revealing more of His glory and power in and through His glorious bride, the church, the “ecclesia” – the called out ones. 
As followers of Jesus, it’s time to get in alignment with what the Lord and His Spirit are saying in order to shine for such a time as this.  We are called out of darkness, to shine God’s glorious light in the earth.*  Even in and through all the darkness that surrounds us and the trials that have come against us to shake us to our core, God’s power and glory will be revealed as we continue to press more into His presence through prayer, worship, and trusting in His Word above all other words.
Haggai 2:6-9:
“For this is what the Lord of Heaven’s Armies says: In just a little while I will again shake the heavens and the earth, the oceans and the dry land.  I will shake all the nations, and the treasures of all the nations will be brought to this Temple. I will fill this place with glory, says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. The future glory of this Temple will be greater than its past glory, says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. And in this place I will bring peace. I, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, have spoken!”
Just as a light bulb can’t burn if it’s not connected to a power source, we must stay plugged into God through His power source, which is the Holy Spirit.  Let the Holy Spirit lead you in all you do. 
God’s glory is not revealed or manifested through our flesh, our natural thoughts or minds, or human rationale and reasonings.  Rather, God’s glory is only displayed as we are more full of His Holy Spirit than any other spirit or spirits.*

Love the Jesus culture song lyrics:

“Where you go, I go

What you say, I say

What you pray, I pray…”

 

Whatever He says do – do.  Keep in mind that Jesus gave some unusual commands preceding several of His miraculous signs.  So, even if it doesn’t make sense to your finite mind, as long as it lines up with the Word of God, just do it.  And, whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.*   
If He says no, don’t go.
If He says wait, wait.
If He says speak, speak. 

God desires to do something new in and through you, but it won’t come without the presence of His Holy Spirit flowing through you. 

I feel something NEW brewing – how about you?  “Don’t you see I’m about to do a new thing?” Open our spiritual eyes of faith, Lord, so that we may walk by faith and not by sight.*
“You are worthy, O Lord our God,
    to receive glory and honor and power.
For you created all things,
    and they exist because you created what you pleased.”  Revelation 4:11
We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves. 2 Corinthians 4:7
We are confident of all this because of our great trust in God through Christ.  It is not that we think we are qualified to do anything on our own. Our qualification comes from God. He has enabled us to be ministers of his new covenant. This is a covenant not of written laws, but of the Spirit. The old written covenant ends in death; but under the new covenant, the Spirit gives life.  The old way, with laws etched in stone, led to death, though it began with such glory that the people of Israel could not bear to look at Moses’ face. For his face shone with the glory of God, even though the brightness was already fading away.  Shouldn’t we expect far greater glory under the new way, now that the Holy Spirit is giving life?  If the old way, which brings condemnation, was glorious, how much more glorious is the new way, which makes us right with God!  In fact, that first glory was not glorious at all compared with the overwhelming glory of the new way. So if the old way, which has been replaced, was glorious, how much more glorious is the new, which remains forever!  2 Corinthians 3:4-11
But whenever someone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. For the Lord is the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.  So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord—who is the Spirit—makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image. 2 Corinthians 3:16-18
All glory to God you glorious ones!

#Prayanywhere #Godiseverywhere

One thing I love about prayer is we can pray anywhere and at any time anywhere we are.  Our prayers are powerful and the effect of our prayers releases the flow of God’s power beyond what we can see.

Being especially reminded today that even when I am limited in my availability to others or in other ways, God’s omniscient presence and power knows no boundaries or distance.  I can always pray and expect God to answer and move by His Spirit.  Our prayers are limitless in that respect.  Why?  Because God is everywhere.  I may be limited with my time, resources and/or the ability to change any situation for the better, but my prayers and God’s power to answer sovereignly and miraculously are never limited.

We can be overtaken with worry, doubt, and fear or we can pray, believe, trust, and expect God to display His unlimited power, resources, and glory. The choice is ours. Prayer is simply communicating with God openly and honestly. He already sees and knows all anyway.  Anytime we are tempted to worry, doubt, or fear, our first response should be to pray in faith.

In Acts 12, believers were gathered praying and Peter was miraculously delivered from prison.  These “believers” were quite shocked when this miracle of deliverance actually occurred.  Often this is how we so called “believers” are too. We pray without really expecting God, or we don’t dare ask God to even do something that would be impossible in the natural.  We forget He is the “ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE” GOD of the universe.  When the unexpected, unexplainable, or what seemed impossible occurs, many of us are even guilty of discounting God’s intervention, miraculous or otherwise.  Lord, forgive us.

Jesus said we should always pray and not give up or stop. He said His house should be called above everything else a “house of prayer.” Luke 18:1; Matthew 21:13

Pray at all times. Pray believing. Pray expecting God to do more than you can ask, think or imagine. Pray, pray, pray. 1 Thessalonians 5:17; Mark 11:22-25; Ephesians 3:20
The prayers of those who have been made righteous before God through the sacrifice of Jesus are powerful. James 5:16

The prayers of the righteous are powerful, and our prayers can reach out to others anywhere they are from anywhere we are.
