Fellowship in Prayer

Prayer, the Greatest Gift

Ephesians 6:18-20 (NIV)
18  And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.
19  Pray also for me, that whenever I open my mouth, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel,
20  for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.

 

Donor Relations

Behind every great leader, someone's willing to sacrifice. Intercession is needed; it takes time. When Jesus went to the garden to pray, three disciples were given the assignment to pray. The hearts of the World Radio Speakers all over the world are echoing the cry of the apostle Paul: “And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord's people. Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.” (Ephesians 6:18-20 NIV) They have a God-given mission and prayer is the greatest gift we can offer, when we pray God works.

Wind Chimes

Text: “‘For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their prayer, but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.’ Who is going to harm you if you are eager to do good? But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. ‘Do not fear what they fear; do not be frightened'” (1 Peter 3:12-14).

Sometimes, in writing, one can improve on the words of others. Sometimes not. I recently read the following thought which seems to say it just right, and I cannot improve. “Do you have wind chimes at your house? The next time you face a storm, listen carefully. Along with the howling wind, you might hear a beautiful sound from the chimes. They are making music in the midst of a storm. That is a parable of our lives. In the face of the greatest storms of our lives, we can make beautiful music.”

Grow Or Die

1 Peter 2:2 “As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby”

Growth in our knowledge of God and his word is evidence of our desire to please him as we seek that better country, the heavenly home (Heb. 11:16). It is of vital importance that we understand that the entire life of a child of God is one of spiritual growth from beginning to end.
