Prayer Alone

I thank God that He made a doorway to heaven that prayers have access to go through. Taking prayer before God is a command, an honor, and a humbling experience. Prayer does not change God, but it changes me. The more I go to God in prayer, the more I desire to be in His presence. Without prayer nothing changes, but with prayer all things are possible. God’s word says, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

   His word, when obeyed, is the instrument in our mouth. When it is loosed it opens heaven’s power to do what we can’t, the impossible. All this hinges on “can we?” Will we humble ourselves, seek His face, turn from our wicked ways? Only then will God lean down and listen, forgive our sin and heal our land.

How do we pray? Can we hear the crying, see the hungry, touch the sick? This is a good place to start praying. Can we look at our churches that are half empty, and see some closing their doors, and not have a burning fire in our hearts to cry out. Choose to live at Jesus feet. When our tears touch His feet, His heart will answer our need, but it’s by prayer alone.

Satisfied

I will not write about my life before Christ. That is past and a new life has emerged with a full pardon. I received His word from front to the back, accepting His instructions and promises. Christ said everything I’ve done, you can do also, and I say “yes.” He said in Galatians that I can walk in the Spirit day by day, moment by moment, and I say “yes.”

The walk for the last forty-six years, have been the most exciting years up until now. There are greater things to come because the Holy Spirit is my witness, friend and guide. Some say the church is not relevant any more and time has past her by. Forgive them for they have never known Christ. The same said Christ was dead, but on the third day He rose from the grave and after being seen by more then five hundred, He ascended back to His Father.

The church is alive and well and the gates of hell shall not prevail. I was once told I wouldn’t be satisfied anywhere, and I’m not, but I am satisfied walking in the Spirit, in intercession with Him. He is the friend I’ve always wanted and needed. Seek God and be blessed.
