Reaching Your City Through the Prayer – Care – Share Lifestyle

Reaching Your City Through the Prayer – Care – Share Lifestyle

“You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven” (Matthew 5:14-16).

God wants us to let our light shine. Every time we pray with someone who does not know Christ, share our testimony, or do a little act of kindness, we are lighting a candle in someone’s life which could eventually lead to their salvation.

For several years my husband and I were involved in what we call the: “Prayer – Care – Share” or “Lighthouse”  Lifestyle. This is a tremendous way to add passion to your daily prayer life. This lifestyle is basically three things—praying, caring, and sharing the light of Jesus with the lost. Prayer will empower our caring and sharing with those who do not know Christ, and sharing with the lost will empower our prayer life. It all works together.

We want to spread His fragrance everywhere we go. We want to pray for individuals and families in our communities and work environments. We want to show that we care through simple acts of kindness. These two combined will open opportunities to share our hope in Christ.

The Devil’s Tool of Discouragement

The Devil’s Tool of Discouragement

“Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God; for I shall yet praise Him, the help of my countenance and my God” (Psalm 42:11).

Do you ever feel discouraged? We all do at one time or another. We live in a fallen world where we are trying to bring God’s Kingdom to earth through our prayers. Dark feelings can overwhelm us when we are emotionally down, but we need to realize that even the greatest of saints got discouraged. Did you know that famous preachers like Charles Spurgeon and mighty evangelists like Billy Graham got discouraged?

John the Baptist faced discouragement while in prison. He was a man of God who was facing doubts in that dark prison cell. He asked Jesus, “’Are you the coming One, or do we look for another?'” Certainly John should have known who Jesus was, but there was a great warfare against this forerunner and prophet of God. He had to guard his heart against offense and the inability to understand.

We also can face moments of deep darkness and discouragement in the midst of spiritual battles, especially in prayer. The following animated video will help you to understand the devil’s tool of discouragement.

How to Fellowship with the Holy Spirit

How to Fellowship with the Holy Spirit

“I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever – the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive…. But you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you” (John 14:16).

We all want fellowship. We want a deep relationship with God, but how many of us know how to really fellowship with the Holy Spirit? So many of us feel like orphans all alone with no Father, no one to guide and help us through life. Many times we do not realize the inner power that we have in the Holy Spirit. He can run everything in our life, but so often we think we have to take matters into our own hands.

The Holy Spirit wants our friendship! He knows everything about everything.

He wants to fellowship with us in life in a deeper dimension than we have ever dreamed possible. He wants to have His strength and power operating within us. He wants to give us His wisdom. He wants to participate in everything we are doing. When we pray, He wants to pray with us and through us. He wants to transform everything that we do with His glorious power. This animated video will help deepen your fellowship and partnership with the Holy Spirit.

A Prayer to Pray in Jesus’ Name with His Authority

A Prayer to Pray in Jesus’ Name with His Authority

“In that day you will no longer ask me anything. Very truly I tell you, my Father will give you whatever you ask in my name. Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete” (John 16:23-24).

Praying in the name of Jesus is powerful because when we pray in His name, we pray with His authority. God promises to answer whatever we ask in His name according to His will. This is why we must know the will of God in order to pray with the authority of Jesus. This truth is wonderful because we have the assurance that He hears our prayers. Through prayer in His name we shall make known among the nations what He has done. Have you taken advantage of this glorious promise in your own life circumstances?

Let us never forget that the name of Jesus is the key that opens heaven’s account. It brings forth His mighty power in our daily lives. As we pray in the coming weeks, let’s remember what it means to pray in His name and realize the authority we have in prayer. The following prayer will help you.

My Prayer to Pray in Jesus’ Name with His Authority

Jesus, I thank You that when I pray in Your name, I pray with Your authority. I have the assurance that You hear my prayers because You promise to answer when I ask according to Your will. I ask You to give me confidence and boldness in my prayers. You are a strong tower and a fortress that all the forces of darkness cannot withstand nor overcome (Proverbs 18:10). I want to believe in the greatness and power of Your name in my own prayer life. Your name is the key that opens heaven’s account.

“O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens (Psalm 8:1). “Not to us, O Lord, not to us but to your name be the glory because of your love and faithfulness (Psalm 115:1).

Please teach me to pray with your authority and with faith in the power of Your name (Acts 3:16). I want to pray in accordance with all that You are and according to Your Word and character (John 14:13). I want to live out my life and bring forth my requests in your name with thanksgiving (Colossians 3:17). I thank You that You save, deliver, and sets free through the use of Your powerful name (Romans 10:13). I can agree with heaven and bring heaven to earth when I pray in Your name (Mark 16:17-18). In Jesus’ name, amen.

Clay on the Potter’s Wheel

Clay on the Potter’s Wheel

“This is the word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD: ‘Go down to the potter’s house, and there I will give you my message.’ So I went down to the potter’s house, and I saw him working at the wheel. But the pot he was shaping from the clay was marred in his hands; so the potter  formed it into another pot, shaping it as seemed best to him” (Jeremiah 18:2-4).

Have you ever carefully watched a potter as he shaped the clay? My husband and I spent five years in Asia and were able to visit the delightful country of Turkey several times. While there I remember visiting a little village where an old woman and man were in the business of making pots into something beautiful. We saw a lot of pots – all shaped by the loving hands of this couple. Some were more beautiful than others.

We are all in a different place in our Christian life, but wherever we are we can be sure of one thing: The almighty, sovereign, and eternal God is shaping us on His refining wheel. Often we resist this refining process because it involves pain. But God is relentless in His goal of producing holiness and Christ-like character in each one of us. He uses our life experiences and struggles in this shaping process. While we are being shaped, we often ask God these kinds of questions:

  • “God, don’t you care about my pain?”
  • “Why don’t I understand what is happening?”
  • “Can I trust that you will bring me through?” 
  • “Why is this taking so long?”

It is the choice of the one being shaped if he agrees to what his maker is doing. How many of us, if we were honest, wonder what God is doing in some area of our life? Today you might feel like nobody cares or knows, and you may feel as if you are in a hidden storage place. The following video will help you to understand God’s refining process in your life.

How to Prayer Journal

How to Prayer Journal

“My heart is stirred by a noble theme as I recite my verses for the king; my tongue is the pen of a skillful writer” (Psalm 45:1).

Some of the most profound insights and experiences of life come through prayer journaling.God wants to speak and give us insights into life. Journaling brings shape and order to everything that we do. I have been keeping a prayer journal for many years, and it helps keep my life in order and my priorities right. It has been an important discipline in my prayer life, helping me to remember what God has done.

Prayer journaling is a way to dialogue with God daily, so that we can remember what and how God is speaking to us. 

Prayer journaling will help you to see real growth in your life because you are bringing to God the things that concern you.Through journaling, you will see your life more clearly through God’s eyes.

A Prayer for the Discouraged

A Prayer for the Discouraged

“Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God; for I shall yet praise Him, the help of my countenance and my God” (Psalm 42:11).

Do you ever feel discouraged? We all do at one time or another. We live in a world that is filled with darkness and difficulty, and we are trying to bring God’s Kingdom to earth through our prayers and through our lives. Gloomy feelings can overwhelm us when we are emotionally down, but we need to realize that even the greatest of saints got discouraged. Did you know that famous preachers like Charles Spurgeon and mighty evangelists like Billy Graham got discouraged?

I heard the story that one day the devil was auctioning off his tools. They were highly priced – laziness, pride, hate, envy, and jealousy. One tool was not for sale. One person asked, “Why is that tool not for sale?” Satan whispered:

“I can’t afford to get rid of that one. It’s my chief tool – discouragement! I can pry open any heart with that tool, and once I’m inside, I can do anything I want!”

Everyone will encounter the devil’s tool of discouragement, but we can’t live in that dark place. We must learn to resist the devil and trust in God’s deliverance.

Maybe you are going through discouragement today. This live prayer can help you rise up in new hope and joy.
