Pray for Your Pastor Today

September 19, 2021

If you have a Pastor who preaches truth from God’s Word, is not afraid to tell of the sin that may be in your life, warns of evil that may entice you to sin, be thankful. Pray for him that he will have the power of the Holy Spirit, that he will not be afraid of offending someone when he is bold to tell the truth.

Encourage him with a kind word or send him a note once in awhile. Tell him you are praying for him and appreciate what he does.

1 Timothy 5:17 – Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.

Hebrews 13:17 – Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.

God Hears and Answers Prayer

September 18, 2021

Do you ever feel like your prayers do not go any farther than the ceiling?

That is not true. God’s Word tells us He hears and answers our prayer.

But, our prayers can be hindered by several things, sin in our lives, unbelief, trying to get the answer ourselves, disobedience and not waiting are just a few things that may hinder our prayers.

The secret is in this verse. Love the Lord. The closer we are to Him, the more our prayers will be in line for His will for us.

I Did Not Get What I Prayed For, But….

September 10, 2021

I asked GOD for strength, that I might achieve
I was made weak, that I might learn humbly to obey.
I asked for health, that I might do greater things
I was given infirmity, that I might do better things.
I asked for riches, that I might be happy
I was given poverty, that I might be wise.
I asked for power, that I might have the praise of men
I was given weakness, that I might feel the need of GOD.
I asked for all things , that I might enjoy life
I was given life,that I might enjoy all things.
I got nothing I asked for —–
But everything I had hoped for.
Almost despite myself, my unspoken prayers were
Answered
I am among all people, most richly blessed.

Pray For Your Pastor Today

September 5, 2021

God gave us the Pastor of our church to help us get through hard times. The Pastor officiates at our wedding, celebrates the birth of our children, prays with us in sickness and sorrows, and at the death of a loved one.

All the time having the same problems we have in his own family. He needs our prayers. Take a few minutes and pray for him today.

Pray he will have power of the Holy Spirit to preach the truth. Pray he will not be distracted by people or circumstances. Pray God will comfort him as he has the burden of his own but also takes the burdens of his whole congregation.

Most of all do not have roast preacher for lunch. Do not talk negatively about him or his family. Let us love our Pastor and show him our appreciation.

Suffering to Glory

Times now are uncertain. The news is full of gloom and doom. Weather disasters, Covid-19, Afghanistan, Government scandals, Deaths. It seems hopeless, but as Christians, we have a SAVIOR, JESUS.

In GOD’s Word are many promises. The present may be hard but we have a glorious future to look forward to.

What can we do now? Pray for those who are hurting that you know personally. Pray for families who have lost loved ones in the military. Pray for our leaders in government that have to make decisions. Pray for the Lord to give you peace and comfort.

Send GOD a SOS!

SOS Events logo. Serving Our Savior.

Sometimes, we have to send out an SOS to the Lord in prayer. He is faithful to answer. An acronym for how to get prayers answered follows:

Sincere: it is important that we are sincere when we pray. God knows our heart and He knows if we really desire what we are asking for.

Obedience: we must be sure we are obedient to God’s word. There must not be any known sin in our lives.

Specific: we must be specific and tell God exactly what we need.

Jeremiah 33:3 Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

Trust in God!

August 8, 2021

Many people, even Christians, are fearful. Illness, natural disasters, family problems and finances are all things that cause us to fear.

But God is real. He tells us to fear not. It is a matter of faith and trust. Faith comes by hearing and hearing is the Word of God.

We need to read the Bible everyday and meditate on what God tells us. Pray and tell Jesus our fears and concerns. Find fellowship with other believers. Listen to Pastors and teachers who present the truth.

Fear and confusion are not from God. Confess our fear to Him and He will bring peace.

Read Your Bible Everyday

Read your Bible.
Pray every day (repeat 3 times).
Read your Bible.
Pray every day.
And you’ll grow, grow, grow (repeat 3 times).
Read your Bible.
Pray every day.
And you’ll grow, grow, grow.

Don’t read your Bible.
Forget to pray (repeat 3 times).
Don’t read your Bible.
Forget to pray.
And you’ll shrink, shrink, shrink (repeat 3 times).
Don’t read your Bible.
Forget to pray.
And you’ll shrink, shrink, shrink.

I love this little kids song. I remember teaching it to my children and in Sunday School.

It may be a song for children, but the lesson is also great for adults. We grow in faith and our Christian walk when we read the Bible everyday. Remember, this is one of the ways GOD speaks to us. We grow closer to Him when we read and understand His Words.

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 2 Timothy 3:16
