I recently read this "Teaching that Transforms" by Wayne Dillard from Prayer Central on
It capsulizes the attributes of prayer. I want to share them here to help you as Wayne commented to keep the pressures of life in perspective when you think or feel that you don't have time to pray. Please click & be linked to PrayerCentral to read in full. Look over this list at such a time as this and maybe you will decide that you can cut something else out of your schedule instead of prayer.
- POWER of PRAYER (Ps. 62:11; Ps. 68:35; Is. 40:29)
- PRESENCE of PRAYER (Jn 14:23; Jn.15:15; Eph. 2:13)
- PRIVILEGE of PRAYER (Heb.10:19-22; Mrk 11:24; Ps. 145:18-19)
- PEACE of PRAYER (Is.26:3; Phil.4:6-7; Romans 8:6)
- PRECIOUSNESS of PRAYER (Ps.139:17; Hebrews 4:14-16; Duet. 4:7)
- PROVISION of PRAYER ( 1 Jn.3:22; Matt. 21:22; Jn. 16:24)
- PROTECTION of PRAYER (Ps.91:1; Ps. 18:2; Ps.71:3)
Do you need God's peace? His power? His prosperity?
Is prayer precious to you? Enough that it's #1 on your To Do list.
Do you know someone that really could use you bringing a prayer for them here?
Since this is a place of prayer rather than just a "blog" about our journey in faith or daily diversions, I thought that people would daily stop by and offer a prayer; a prayer for a friend in need, a special prayer request, a joyful praise, a grateful heart of thanks, or just a daily greeting.
But there are just a few faithful that share here and I have to wonder: where are all the prayers? where are the prayers that people say "I'm praying for you"? How can we start our day without prayer?
I don't think that because you don't stop by here and write out a prayer or prayer request that you aren't praying but it does make me wonder what priority it takes to other tasks in the blogosphere. It does not have to be alot or a long prayer. I thank each of you who DO come here and leave a prayer. I thank God for the recent ones that have joined us. God bless you!
I encourage you to take time each day to worship Our LORD! Spend time in prayer. Drop by and leave a short prayer for someone and let them know you wrote a prayer for them over at the Lighthouse. Make it a practice to share one another's burdens. Here is a place where we can join forces.
Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken. Ecclesiastes 4:12
Five of you shall chase a hundred, and a hundred of you shall put ten thousand to flight; your enemies shall fall by the sword before you." Leviticus 26:3
Let's receive these "P's" of Prayer as a value statement for our time and energies. Let them motivate us to put time with God in it's proper place, and become a witness of His peace and power.A Lighthouse is two or more people who have agreed to reach their neighborhood, workplace, school or in our case BLOG FRIENDS through a strategy of prayer, care, share. Anywhere you are, you can be a Lighthouse. As you live out the Lighthouse strategy to your neighbors, God will open up doors of opportunity for to share your faith -- giving them an opportunity to know Jesus Christ. Come join us & spread the word about Shining the light of Jesus by lifting a prayer to the Throne, right here with us. Thank you for sharing our hearts!
Thank you for caring to share a prayer here! Thank you for leaving your prayer or request.
