Have You Ever Noticed that Immediately After Putting On the Whole Armor of Yahweh
We Are Instructed to Pray For ALL the Saints, (This is Because You Can’t Get into Warfare Without the Armor, and Perhaps it Also Gets the
Focus Off of ‘Self’).
We Are Instructed to
Thanksgiving, (Counting the Thing Done Even While We Are Praying).
Believing that Whatever it is that You Are Praying is Complete, and NOT to Hold Any of the Care or Concern For Yourself.
Here is a Quote From Bill Johnson’s Book Called, “Hosting The Presence: Unveiling Heaven’s Agenda”.
Perhaps The Greatest Understatement of this Book is that The Presence of God is Discovered In Prayer.
And While that is an Obvious Truth, Many People Learn to Pray Without The Presence,
Thinking Their Discipline is What God is Looking For.
Discipline Has an Important Part In Walking with Christ, for Sure.
But Christianity Was Never to Known for Its Disciplines; It Was to Be Known by Its Passions.
Prayer is The Ultimate Expression of Partnership with God. It is The Adventure of Discovering and Praying His Heart. So Many Spend
Their Life Praying to Go, When They Could Be Praying with God. This Partnership with Its Answers and Breakthroughs, is Supposed to Be
The Source of Our Fullness of Joy.
That Above Seems Right, but I Would Say it Much Simpler. When Yahweh Wakes Me Up and I Know that He Wants Me to Pray. Sometimes, if I
Have Gone to Bed Too Late, then I Have to Fight to Wake Up. However, Based on His Track Record of Waking Me Up On Certain Days,
I Have Learned to Go to Bed Earlier the Night Before, (Because He Is Going to Stir Me Either Way).
The Distractions of Today Include Posting Some Clever
Inspiring Messages On FaceBook; Watching too Much TV, or
the Wrong Shows, that Will Take Our Thoughts Down the
Wrong Paths, (Like the Rock Thrown to Distract the
But, Regardless of If I Spring Up or If Am Barely There, then My First Expression to Yahweh is,
“Thank You for Allowing me to Be a Part Of Changing The World”. What Would Like Me to Pray Over, or to Declare Out Loud and Call Those
Things That Are Not As Though They Were, (Such Things as an End to Abortion. Gays Turning to Christ. Preachers Being More Concerned With
Ministering to their Flocks than Having a Pastor Appreciation Day).
The Great Revival Preacher; Leonard Ravenhill, (Author of, “Why Revival Tarries”), On Prayer:
“No Man is Greater than His Prayer Life. The Pastor Who is Not Praying is Playing; the People Who Are Not Praying Are Straying. The Pulpit Can Be a Shop Window to Display One’s Talents; the Prayer Closet Allows No Showing Off. Poverty-Stricken as the Church is Today in Many Things, She is Most Stricken Here, in the Place of Prayer.
We Have Many Organizers, But Few agonizers; Many Players and Payers, Few Pray-ers; Many Singers, Few Clingers; Lots of Pastors, Few Wrestlers; Many Fears, Few Tears; Much Fashion, Little Passion; Many Interferers, Few Intercessors; Many Writers, But Few Fighters. Failing Here,
We Fail Everywhere.”
