Pray the Right Way

Pray first for the Spirit to make the intercession through you.

  1. Pray to be Guided
  2. Pray to be Guarded
  3. Pray to be Groomed

Jesus promised that the Father would send the helper which is the Holy Spirit.

In this life time you will find opportunities to quit the position you hold or the place you stand in.

In this life there will be hard times and trails that you will pray for God to let you leave!

Pressure today comes to Christians in an even greater intensity than we have ever experience.

When you pray the right way, it will make a difference.

  1. Strength you to stand
  2. Strength you to go on.
  3. Strength you to resist Satan will come forth.

Praying the Right way comes from developing the heart that seeks after God.

King David was known as a man whose heart followed after God.

David goal and greatest desire.

  1. Was not to be the greatest king.
  2. Was not to be the greatest musician.
  3. Was not to be the wealthiest man.
  4. Was not to be successful.
  5. Was not to be popular.

David’s goal and greatest desire can be found in a Psalm he wrote.

Psalm 27:4 (KJV)

4 One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.

David’s search in life was to have God’s heart.

If we are to pray right, we must first know the ministry of Glorifying and Honoring God.

1 Peter 2:5 (KJV)

5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.

Jesus being our great example taught us to make Prayer a habit.

Right prayer was the key to His Anointing, Wisdom, and Endurance.

Luke 22:39–40 (NLT)

39 Then, accompanied by the disciples, Jesus left the upstairs room and went as usual to the Mount of Olives. 40 There he told them, “Pray that you will not give in to temptation.”

The Prophet Daniel understood the Habit of Prayer.

Daniel 6:10–11 (NLT)

10 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.

11 Then the officials went together to Daniel’s house and found him praying and asking for God’s help.

I had to pray to the Spirit to help me get my Prayer life Right so the rest of my life could be Right.

Right Prayer contains 4 ingredients.

  1. Adoration to God. Praise
  2. Confession of Sin. My short comings
  3. Thankfulness for what God has already done.
  4. Supplication. Asking God to meet a need or a desire.

Right Prayer places us in alignment with God’s desire for us.

2 Kings 4:1–6 (NLT)

One day the widow of a member of the group of prophets came to Elisha and cried out, “My husband who served you is dead, and you know how he feared the Lord. But now a creditor has come, threatening to take my two sons as slaves.”

“What can I do to help you?” Elisha asked. “Tell me, what do you have in the house?”

“Nothing at all, except a flask of olive oil,” she replied.

And Elisha said, “Borrow as many empty jars as you can from your friends and neighbors. Then go into your house with your sons and shut the door behind you. Pour olive oil from your flask into the jars, setting each one aside when it is filled.”

So she did as she was told. Her sons kept bringing jars to her, and she filled one after another.

Soon every container was full to the brim!

“Bring me another jar,” she said to one of her sons.

“There aren’t any more!” he told her. And then the olive oil stopped flowing.

The widow woman had a choice.

She could gather many vessels or she could gather a few vessels.

This story teaches us the power of obedience.

When did the oil stop?

The oil stopped when the widow ran out of jars.

She held the key to her miracle.

If she had gathered more jars, she would have had more oil to sell.

If she had gathered less jars, she would have less oil to sell.

The widow could have used excuses, It is hot today and I will gather only enough jars to show Elijah I need help.

She could have said I have been under so much stress I don’t feel well.

She could have said I don’t have many friends so I can’t find many jars.

Elijah didn’t tell her where to get the Jars from.

The key to the Right Prayers is Faith!

Why pray if you lack the faith to do what you can.

Holy Spirit, I believe but help me with my unbelief.

Just like Solomon when we pray, we should learn to pray the Right prayer.

Solomon did not ask for riches or the life of his enemies but for wisdom.

Are you praying the Right Prayers.

Thou Kingdom come, thy will be done through me and in me.

God has a Purpose for your Pain

God has assigned a Purpose to your Pain

Numbers 14:23–24 (KJV)

23 Surely they shall not see the land which I sware unto their fathers, neither shall any of them that provoked me see it:

24 But my servant Caleb, because he had another spirit with him, and hath followed me fully, him will I bring into the land whereinto he went; and his seed shall possess it.

The pains of life should not cancel out your purpose in life.

Your purpose has more to do with where you were born and raised than you might expect.

You may have spent the large part of your life seeing it as an evil, yet God meant it for good.

All your life experiences, which may be ups and downs, have only been shaping you for your purpose.

God had led the people to edge of the land he promised to give them, but the lack of faith and doubt hindered them from entering.

There was one man that God pointed out as having another spirit in the KJV but in the Living Bible it is translated different attitude.

Caleb knew and understood that God had a purpose for his life.

God has a purpose in all our lives for us to fulfill.

You are not here by accident.

Your birth will not define your destiny.

You have a destiny in God to fulfill.

The way you find your purpose is in seeking God.

Once you find your purpose you must make the decisions to fulfill that purpose God created you for.

Your purpose was God ordained, and your purpose was God-destined time.

The people God called to go into the Promised Land had a God-destiny timetable and they were God ordain to possess the land.

They wasted forty years out of disobedience.

They were born in Egypt, raised in slavery, and traveled in the wilderness yet God had a purpose behind their whole existence.

Because of doubt and the lack of faith they missed their purpose in life.

For forty years they had walked in circles in the wilderness.

All the males older than twenty had died.

People with no purpose seem to walk in circles blaming their failures on God and everyone who crosses their path in life.

They walk until they dig holes for themselves and eventually die.

So often the die without living and they die full of bitterness, mad at other people, the world, and without saying it out loud mad at God.

Caleb who walks in the circle with Joshua had another spirit.

Caleb and Joshua knew they had a purpose and a calling on their lives.

They knew will God’s help they could possess the land.

They had to wait forty years to fulfill their destiny, but they never lost faith in God to for-fill the promise.

Yes, they could have enjoyed their destiny/purpose, but they had to wait on the rebellious one to die out.

Now don’t get discourage when the people go has placed in your life rebel against God just remember.

Isaiah 40:31 (KJV)

31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Lack of faith will make you abandon your purpose     and move ahead of God or move away from God.

2 Timothy 1:9 (KJV)

 Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,

When you know and understand your purpose comes from God you have the patience to see it come to fruit fulness.

Hebrews says in Sundry times God spoke.

When the time was right. A certain times. A different times.

God told Esther through Mordecai who knows your purpose was not for such a time as this.

Your birth, your being without parents, your adoption, your opportunity to be queen was to save your people Israel.

Not this is not the time to hold your peace.

1 Peter 5:6 (NLT)

So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor.

Your purpose is tied to time.

At the right time God will call you to your life purpose will you be in the place to hear the call.

The wrong place is the place of bitterness, doubting, and fear.

2 Corinthians 5:10 (NLT)

10 For we must all stand before Christ to be judged. We will each receive whatever we deserve for the good or evil we have done in this earthly body.

While eternal life is a free gift given on the basis of God’s grace, each of us will still be judged by Christ.

He will reward us for how we have lived.

God’s gracious gift of salvation does not free us from the requirement of faithful obedience.

All Christians must give account on the day of judgment of how they have lived.

Are you walking in your purpose.

Age, education, location, should not keep you from walking in your purpose.

Caleb waited 40 years and at the age of 85 when the land was being divided Caleb didn’t ask God for favoritism due to his age.

Caleb didn’t ask for a handicap sticker or a special seat in the church.

Caleb understood his purpose and asked for the mountain where the giants live.

Stop seeing yourself as less than or not good enough.

Many are called but few are chosen and if you have been chosen for a job by God refuse to allow fear or anyone to stop you or block you from your purpose.

Your purpose reaches beyond your happiness and well-being.

Finding your purpose.

  1. Find out what drives you.  
  2. Find out what energizes you.  
  3. Find out what you are willing to sacrifice for.  
  4. Find out who you want to help.  


I have notice the recent shopping habits of people an attitude of looking more at value shopping.

The question that came across my mind this morning was why are people slow to return to the church building?

Could it be value shopping? Or may I say value added?

Even a less made product becomes valuable when the price is reduced or two for one sale.

Then the question arises, what value does attending church add to my life verses staying home and listening to the word online?

The value of the church is to connect worshippers with God and people of like-mind faith.

Philippians 3:8

Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,

The cost is giving of time, talent, and money.

In going to church I feel a growing relationship with the creator and with like-minded people.

 What if people no longer feel that the church is connecting them to God, people, and purpose?

What if, instead, people have stop believing that the church has value and lacks spiritual health or that no one befriends them or that there is no place of meaningful service for them in the church?

Do you think people will continue to pay the price of attending with time, tithing, and volunteering?

Should the church be afraid to examine its purpose for existing?

Should the church have this conversation?

Will this value consumer added society where people know value and expect value willing to exchange what they see as value for what the church is offering?

Is the church delivering a Christ that adds value to the lives of people?

After Paul considered everything, he had accomplished in his life, he decided to write it all off as “worthless” when compared with the greatness of knowing Christ.

We should value our relationship with Christ as more important than anything else.

To know Christ should be our ultimate goal.

Yet how do we know him better?

(1) Study the life of Christ in the Gospels. See how Christ lived and responded to people (Matthew 11:29).

(2) Study all the New Testament references to Christ (Colossians 1:15–2:15).

3) As you worship and pray, let the Holy Spirit remind you of Christ’s words (John 14:26).

(4) Take up Christ’s mission to preach the gospel and learn from his sufferings (Matthew 28:19; Philippians 3:10).

To do these things, however, may mean that the church must make major changes in its thinking and what it is doing on Sunday and Wednesday nights.

Value Added.

Is the church willing to change its values in order to show forth Christ better?

Could this be why people are not willing to fix or rearrange their crowded schedule in order to set aside a few hours on Sunday?

Could this also be the reason people are not willing to change some plans, goals, and desires in order to conform with what Christ wants from their lives?

Whatever a person changes or give up to gain must have more value than what they are giving up.

Christ to me has greater value than the worldly things but inside the building is not the only way we can gain Christ.

John 18:36 (KJV)
36  Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.


Matthew 13:44–47 (AV)

44 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.

45 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:

46 Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.

47 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind:

The Kingdom of Heaven is more valuable than anything else we can have, and a person must be willing to give up everything to obtain it.

The man who discovered the treasure hidden in the field stumbled upon it by accident but knew its value when he found it.

Although the transaction cost the man everything, he paid nothing for the priceless treasure itself. It came free, with the field.

Nothing is more precious than the Kingdom of Heaven; yet God gives it to us as a gift.


Because we enter the ring with the lack of knowledge.

Hosea 4:6

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge,  

Ephesians 6:12

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

We wrestle with Satan, and we fail because of:

1. We want to. The pleasure of sin is hard to resist.

2. We’ve developed bad habits that need to be unlearned. So thinketh a man so is he.

3. We fail to have accountability partners who will ask us the hard questions. The scriptures say encourage one another.

4. Even though the spirit is willing, the flesh is weak.

5. We fail to recognize that we are in the middle of spiritual warfare.

6. We have not learned to recognize the triggers that trip us.

7. We do not practice daily walking in the fullness and power of the Spirit.

A) God, I hear you.

B) God, I see you.

C) God, I feel your spirit is presence in this situation.

8. We are not practicing spiritual disciplines that help us to put off the old person and put on the new.

9. We typically react out of our pain from past or present experiences rather than respond to God.

10. We are still imperfect and in the process of being made whole and sanctified by God. We have not arrive to the point of being.

A) Saved

B) Sanctified

C) Satisfied in Christ

Ephesians 6:11b–13 The purpose of putting on God’s armor is to be able to stand against the schemes or tricks of the devil or adversary (cf. 4:27).

Ephesians 4:14 (NLT)

14 Then we will no longer be immature like children. We won’t be tossed and blown about by every wind of new teaching. We will not be influenced when people try to trick us with lies so clever they sound like the truth.

Ephesians 4:27 (NLT)

27 for anger gives a foothold to the devil.

The armor is not for warfare of the believer but to enable him/ her to stand in warfare.

Christians are not to attack Satan, or advance against him; they are only to “stand” or hold the territory Christ and His body, the church, have conquered.

When under attack the believer will sing, I won’t go back.

William McDowell had a song:

I’ve been changed (I’ve been changed)

In the presence of the lord, I’ve been (healed)

Freed (freed)

Delivered (delivered)

In your presence, lord (I’ve found joy)


Grace (grace)

And favor (and favor)

And right now (right now is the moment) today

(Today is the day) I’ve been changed (I’ve been changed)

I’ve been changed (I’ve been changed)

And I have waited (I have waited for this moment to come)

(And I won’t let it pass me by) so we say

(I won’t go back, can’t go back, to the way it used to be)

(Before your presence, came and changed me)

Say I won’t, oh, can’t go back (I won’t go back)

(Can’t go back, to the way it used to be) to the way it used to be

Before your presence came and changed me

(All my shame)


(Sins) they’ve been forgiven


(No more chains)


My past (my past)

Is over (is over)

Say right now (right now is the moment) today

(Today is the day) I’ve been changed (I’ve been changed)

Come on, somebody declare that, I’ve been changed (I’ve been changed)

And I have waited (I have waited for this moment to come) this moment right here, I’ve waited all my life

(And I won’t let it pass me by) so we say

Without God’s armor believers will be defeated by the “schemes” of the devil which have been effective for thousands of years.

The struggle is not physical (against flesh and blood); it is a spiritual conflict against the spiritual “Mafia.”

Though the ranks of satanic forces cannot be fully categorized, the first two (rulers and authorities) have already been mentioned in 1:21 and 3:10.

Paul added the powers of this dark world (cf. 2:2; 4:18; 5:8) and the spiritual forces of evil.

Their sphere of activity is in the heavenly realms,  

Satan, who was in the heavens (2:2) until he will be cast out in the middle of the Tribulation (Rev. 12:9–10), is trying to rob believers of the spiritual blessings God has given them (Eph. 1:3).

Too, the word stand in verse 13 “to withstand or stand against”.

James 4:7 (NLT): So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you

1 Peter 5:9 (NLT): Stand firm against him, and be strong in your faith. Remember that your family of believers all over the world is going through the same kind of suffering you are.

Satan thought he had defeated Jesus on the cross at Calvary.

Jesus suffered on the cross.

Jesus submitted to death and the grave on Friday afternoon.

Three days Satan claimed the victory, but Sunday morning came, and Jesus got up.

I need somebody hear me, today. “You got the victory so just stand”.

Your depression will not win.

Your sickness will not win.

Your fear will not win.

That loneliness will not win.

Jesus like Jesus you will suffer but Sunday morning is coming, and you will rise against.

On Sunday morning Jesus rose from the dead.

O death where is your sting?

O grave where is your victory?

Jesus got the victory.

Theme: “We are Stronger Together”

1 Corinthians 12:18

18 But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him.

Value of the Vision

  1. Reach People for the Lord
  2. Teach People about the Lord
  3. Gather People in the name of the Lord
  4. Inspire People in the Lord

Encourage (Urging one another to stay faithful), (Exalt (Overflowing declaration of Christ), Equip (Making disciple with the power of the Spirit) and Evangelize (Fishing for men)

  1. Encourage –Hebrews 3:13
  2. Exalt – Psalm 34:3
  3. Equip – Ephesians 4:11-12
  4. Evangelize – Acts 1:8

The early church was devoted to the Four E’s

 “And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship (EQUIP), to the breaking of bread and the prayers.

And awe came upon every soul (EXALT), and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles.

And all who believed were together and had all things in common. And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need (ENCOURAGE).

And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people.

And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved. (EVANGELIZE)” Acts 2:42-47


1. All of us will have room for growth until the Lord calls us home. None of us will have “arrived,” no matter how old we get. If we think we have, we’ve just provided another reason to have a mentor who keeps us straight—and who most certainly knows more than we know. 
2. All of us need someone whose faithfulness challenges us. We need someone we can look to who has already walked before us—and who has remained faithful all the way. Watching someone follow God fully “all the way” is both encouraging and convicting. 
3. All of us need someone in our life who’s walked where we’re headed. We still face new things as we age; in fact, we often journey down paths of health problems, retirement issues, etc., that we have not traveled before. Having an older mentor who has already walked these paths is surely beneficial. 
4. All of us need someone in our life who is finishing well. Sadly, even some older church leaders have fallen morally. Apparently, no one is immune from strong temptation. We need to see others who’ve walked before us, fought the fight, and run the race well. 
5. All of us need a veteran believer praying for us. Actually, we need any prayer warriors we can get on our side—but there’s something special about someone older than we are interceding for us to follow the Lord well. Veteran believers usually know how to pray. 
6. It’s good for us to see older believers face death in faith. I realize this reason sounds morbid, but it never hurts us to see undying faith—even in the face of death.  
So, no matter how old you are, ask God to give you an older mentor. Keep looking until you find one, and “pull out of him [or her] all you can.” If you have no one who lives near you, contact someone who lives elsewhere. You can still learn from a mentor via electronic means.

How long? (Opening Seal 5)

Revelation 6:10

Elijah said, How long halt ye between two opinions?

William Thompson said, How long before my feeling catches up to my Faith?

Psalm 13:1–2 (NLT)

O Lord, how long will you forget me? Forever?

How long will you look the other way?

How long must I struggle with anguish in my soul,

with sorrow in my heart every day?

How long will my enemy have the upper hand?

Sometimes all we need to do is talk over a problem with a friend to help put it in perspective. In this psalm, the phrase “how long” occurs four times in the first two verses, indicating the depth of David’s distress.

David expressed his feelings to God and found strength. By the end of his prayer, he was able to profess hope and trust in God.

Through prayer we can express our feelings and talk our problems out with God. He helps us regain the right perspective, and this gives us peace (Habakkuk 3:17–19).

2 Peter 3:8-9

But you must not forget this one thing, dear friends: A day is like a thousand years to the Lord, and a thousand years is like a day.

The Lord isn’t really being slow about his promise, as some people think. No, he is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent.

God may have seemed slow to these believers as they faced persecution every day and longed to be delivered.

But God is not slow; he just is not on our timetable.

Psalm 90:4 (NLT)

For you, a thousand years are as a passing day, as brief as a few night hours.

Jesus is waiting so that more sinners will repent and turn to him.

We must not sit and wait for Christ to return, but we should realize that time is short and we have important work to do.

Be ready to meet Christ any time, even today; yet plan your course of service as though he may not return for many years.

  1. Sara had to wait
  2. Hannah had to wait
  3. Job had to wait
  4. The cripple at the pool had to waiting
  5. Elizabeth had to wait

Have you ever been stuck!

  1. A Place
  2. A Problem
  3. A Situation
  4. A Person

Did you cry How Long?

How will this last?

  1. Will the Covid be with us
  2. Will we need to wear mask?
  3. Before thing return to normal
  4. This sickness last
  5. This brokenness last
  6. This Feeling of being Broken
  7. This feeling of Loneliness
  8. This feeling of Feeling Empty
  9. This Feeling of being overwhelmed
  10. This Feeling of Fear
  11. This Feeling of Depression
  12. Before we Return to School
  13. Will my mind slow down
  14. Will my emotion settle in one direction?

How Long?

Last week the text was about the opening of the 7 seals of which we open four and today we will open seal five.

Revelation 6:9–14 (NLT):

9 When the Lamb broke the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of all who had been martyred for the word of God and for being faithful in their testimony.

10 They shouted to the Lord and said, “O Sovereign Lord, holy and true, how long before you judge the people who belong to this world and avenge our blood for what they have done to us?”

11 Then a white robe was given to each of them. And they were told to rest a little longer until the full number of their brothers and sisters—their fellow servants of Jesus who were to be martyred—had joined them.

12 I watched as the Lamb broke the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake. The sun became as dark as black cloth, and the moon became as red as blood.

13 Then the stars of the sky fell to the earth like green figs falling from a tree shaken by a strong wind.

14 The sky was rolled up like a scroll, and all of the mountains and islands were moved from their places.

These martyrs/victims/witnesses were told that still more would lose their lives for their belief in Christ (6:11).

In the face of warfare, famine, persecution, and death, Christians will be called on to stand firmly for what they believe.

Only those who endure to the end will be rewarded by God (Mark 13:13).

The altar represents the altar of sacrifice in the Temple, where animals were sacrificed to atone for sins.

Instead of the animals’ blood at the base of the altar, John saw the souls of martyrs who had died for preaching the Good News.

These martyrs were told that still more would lose their lives for their belief in Christ (6:11).

Christians will be and are called to stand firmly for what they believe.

Only those who endure to the end will be rewarded by God (Mark 13:13).

I know they are eager for God to bring justice to the earth, but they are told to wait.

I know your situation can be hard to bear but you must wait!

God is not waiting until a certain number is reached, but he is promising that those who suffer and die for their faith will not be forgotten.

Rather, they will be singled out by God for special honor.

We may wish for justice immediately, as these martyrs did, but we must be patient. Wait! Lord How Long?

God works according to his own timetable, and he promises justice.

No suffering for the sake of God’s Kingdom, however, is wasted.

Those under the altar call out to God, “How long will it be before you judge the people who belong to this world and avenge our blood for what they have done to us?”

As we see the world’s wickedness, we, too, may cry out to God, “How long?”

We may be distressed and impatient, but God has his plan and his timing, and we must learn to trust him to know what is best.

Judgment is coming—be sure of that.

 Thank God for the time he has given you to turn from sin.

Use the available time to work to help others turn to him.

The bible tells us not to get weary in well doing?

Lord How Long will the wick reign and the righteous suffer?

 Job 14:14 says with all my struggles; I will wait until my change comes!

Ps. 30:5 Weeping may come but joy will come also!

Your struggles are making Room for your Blessing!

In your struggles is the opportunity to show Patience!

If you are struggling right now it is alright to ask the “Lord How Long”

If you are hurting right now it is alright to ask the “Lord How Long”

Giving up is never an option but Calling on the name of the Lord is!

When you are struggling tell yourself, Self I’m Under Construction!

The struggle is Real but not Permanent!

I can bear the struggle because there is a Reward at the End!

You can tell, more about who I am by the scares left from the struggle!

Jesus had nail prints in His hands, His side, and His feet!

But He didn’t get down from the cross!

He didn’t quit nor complain.

Ecclesiastes 7:8 (NLT)

Finishing is better than starting. Patience is better than pride.

I need a Prophetic word today!

1 Corinthians 14:3 (NLT)

But one who prophesies strengthens others, encourages them, and comforts them.

A prophetic word is when God gives someone else who is filled with His Holy Spirit a glimpse into your future or your now to encourage you, and it really should be encouraging. 

 It should be calling you into your destiny.

Your destiny is where God sees you in the future and a prophetic word gives you a sense of what & where that is. 

The prophetic word gives you hope about the future.

It gives you hope that one day you’ll be out of the place you’re currently in and some days that hope is what keeps a person going.

A prophetic word should be speaking what is truth and not what is true.   

What is true is where we are now and it might be an absolute empty hole, what is truth is who and where God is calling us to be and it gives hope to get there. 

Even if a person is in sin, a prophetic word calls them out of that place to aa better place.

As you are reading this, I believe the prophetic is speaking to you about your life and your future.

Your present situation is not defining you but building you for your future and next move.

Ask God to send more encourager into your life.

“Is there a word for the Lord?”

A word about marriage, job, ministry, finances, health, and friends who fill my life in the future.

Are You Really that busy You don’t have Time to Pray?

Prayer is our means of communication with God, and it is only through God that we have the strength, abilities and wisdom we need to face this busy day. But when we’re so busy, when is there time to pray? My answer may surprise you pray now.

Start with

1. Thank you for this day.

“This is the day the Lord has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it.” (Psalm 118:24 NKJV)

Glad to wake up!

Glad you have give me a mind to pray!

Glad that I am as we as I am!

Glad to be your child!

2. You are so good.

“Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.” (1 Chronicles 16:34)

3. Protect me.

“I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.” (Luke 10:19)

You gave me Wisdom!

You gave me Strength!

You gave me Authority over my enemies!

Stop right now and take time to pray!
