Last week was a WOW Week! Another WEEK OF WARFARE and a WEEK OF WITNESSING God pouring out His Spirit in the public schools! First, at Nichols Lawson Middle School on Friday, August 11th, and then again on Wednesday, August 16th, at Sylacauga High School. Mighty warfare always precedes breakthrough in the Spirit. God is moving mightily and He is moving in uncommon places. God is going to use the youth and He is going to use the arts too! Just as He did in this assembly! He is going to use the least likely and the unexpected ALL FOR HIS GLORY!
So shall they fear
The name of the Lord from the west,
And His glory from the rising of the sun;
When the enemy comes in like a flood,
The Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him. (Isaiah 59:19 NKJV)

#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.

A Prayer for America

#aprayerforAmerica
Dear Lord, forgive us for our pride and for doing what we think is right in our own eyes.  We humble ourselves in repentance before You asking for Your forgiveness on behalf of ourselves, our families, and our nation.  We ask You to turn the hearts, minds, and spirits of Your people to You – to follow You and Your ways, Your Word and Your Truth.  We ask for Your mercy, Lord.  We thank You for Your mercy and forgiveness and for healing and bringing restoration to our land.  We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ – the name that is above every other name.  Amen.

Let your unfailing love surround us, Lord, for our hope is in You alone. Psalm 33:22 #Godisouronlyhope #Yourloveneverfails #Godislove
Pride leads to disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.  Proverbs 11:2
God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble. James 4:6
Then if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14
