Call to Prayer / A prayer of David – A Morning Prayer

Psalm 5

5 Give ear to my words, O Lord, consider my meditation.

Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray.

My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O Lord; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.

For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee.

The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.

Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing: the Lord will abhor the bloody and deceitful man.

But as for me, I will come into thy house in the multitude of thy mercy: and in thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple.

Lead me, O Lord, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make thy way straight before my face.

For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulchre; they flatter with their tongue.

10 Destroy thou them, O God; let them fall by their own counsels; cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions; for they have rebelled against thee.

11 But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.

12 For thou, Lord, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.

An excellent prayer model for us to learn from. Praying at the beginning of the day, acknowledging God for who He is. Taking direction from Him, rejoicing in Him.

RELATIONSHIPS WITH OTHERS
1 Timothy 5:1-3

In Jesus’ Name, I Pray God’s Will for You Today

I pray that you will be thankful to the Lord for your spiritual family, where you can learn how to love and respect others the way He wants you to. I pray that you will respect older men as if they were your own father, and treat younger men like brothers. I pray that you will treat older women as you would treat mothers and younger women like sisters – with absolute purity. May you appreciate and value your spiritual family, knowing that it is God who placed you there.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Call To Prayer / Praying when Others Don’t Understand You

Call To Prayer / Praying when Others Don’t Understand You

1 Samuel 1:10-16, ESV

She was deeply distressed and prayed to the Lord and wept bitterly.And she vowed a vow and said, “O Lord of hosts, if you will indeed look on the affliction of your servant and remember me and not forget your servant, but will give to your servant a son, then I will give him to the Lord all the days of his life, and no razor shall touch his head.”

As she continued praying before the Lord, Eli observed her mouth.Hannah was speaking in her heart; only her lips moved, and her voice was not heard. Therefore Eli took her to be a drunken woman. And Eli said to her, “How long will you go on being drunk? Put your wine away from you.”But Hannah answered, “No, my lord, I am a woman troubled in spirit. I have drunk neither wine nor strong drink, but I have been pouring out my soul before the Lord. Do not regard your servant as a worthless woman, for all along I have been speaking out of my great anxiety and vexation.” – 1 Samuel 1:10-16, ESV

Here you see that Hannah is thought to be drunk because when Eli saw her, he only saw her lips moving but could not hear her. How often are we judged when we pray not as another? Has this kept you from coming to His alter and laying down your request, afraid of how others would perceive your action? While serving on our church’s prayer team, we would stand at the end of the service to pray with anyone who wanted prayer, but there were many services when no one approached us. On service God spoke to me and said, ‘Why is My alter empty with so many needs within this body? Pride and fear keep them away. There are so many suffering and who will be willing to come together and lift them in prayer. My House is to be called a House of Prayer, yet there are so many here and in other places where my alter is empty. Cry out and tell them to come, and left nothing keep you from coming to Me.’

Since this day, I have repeated this message and too often I feel like it has fallen on deaf ears. How ever your pray, and what ever you need to pray for, let nothing keep you from joining together in prayer. Pray in agreement and according to His will and see the mountains be moved, see healings through this land, see people freed from abuse and addictions. See all the Lord has for you and me.

Read Isaiah 56:7

Leave any prayer requests you have in the comments and let us pray together, and for each other, in Jesus name. God bless and keep you safe from all harm.

Call To Prayer / James 5:15-16

Call To Prayer / James 5:15-16

Praying together and for each other.

James 5:15-16

15And the prayer offered in faith will restore the one who is sick. The Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven. 16Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man has great power to prevail.

Praying for each other to bring healing across not just our nation but around the world. For all who are ill, suffer from disease or cancer, or any other sickness, including mental and emotional health.

Isaiah 53:4-5

4Surely He took on our infirmities and carried our sorrows; yet we considered Him stricken by God, struck down and afflicted. 5But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.

Leave any prayer requests in the comments, so we may pray for each other and in agreement.

Survivor’s Prayer

Survivor’s Prayer

joyindestructible

If I am still alive when the bitter cloud passes, may I not I not be found stubbornly clinging to the storm because I’ve adapted myself to misery. Instead, may I celebrate in sunlight as I embrace the sparkling new day the sun reveals. Let me move forward to clean up the damage left by the storm and not be stuck hanging on for survival long after the storm has passed. A powerful storm forever transforms the landscape and the lives of those who survive but help me, Lord to accept and embrace the transformation. May the storm not live on in me in thoughts that exist in loops and refuse to move forward. Make me mindful of the present and keep me from reliving terrifying moments and even repeating them by my actions. I do not want to be a storm bearer, a manufacturer of the misery I survived. Instead…

Bon Jovi Couldn’t Be More Accurate

This post is not about what you may think, take a moment of your time and read, you will be pleasantly surprised.

Honest Thoughts from a Pastor

I don’t doubt that many of you read this post title and thought, “Matthew has lost his mind!” My response – “You have stated the obvious😂.” Seriously. I would not label Bon Jovi a theologian, but his lyrics, “Oh, we’re halfway there. Oh, living on a prayer,” is right. The year is halfway over, and prayer is very much on the minds of anyone who is concerned about the status of our world.

As I reflect on this, I can’t help but think how many of us would agree that prayer is powerful while our prayer lives do not reflect it. We may pray over meals or when we want something from God. I know I’m guilty of not desperately crying out to God in this crucial time in history like I should. If we’re honest, I’m not alone in this.

Here is what the Bible says…

Dear God, Are You Hearing My Prayers?

The song choices included with this blog are excellent!

My God, My Music, My Life

Dear God,

Are you hearing my prayers? I have been praying the same prayer for as long as I can remember but my prayer isn’t being answered. Is there another way I can reach you? Can I  send an email, text, tweet, Facebook message, any other way? Can You at least send me a message received? Should I keep praying or should I move on to another prayer? Do You get tired of hearing the same prayer every day?

Am I asking for too much? Am I asking with little faith? I don’t think so. Is my heart sincere? I think so. You say ask and it will be given to me. I believe in You and believe You will answer my prayer request. I just want to make sure You are getting it. I know you probably get more prayer requests each day than there are grains of sand…

Prayer Journey — Poised for Prayer

Prayer Journey — Poised for Prayer

140 Character Christian

What is the proper attitude when we approach God in prayer with petitions? At times it is difficult to discern if our requests are simply our own desires or if they reflect God’s desires. If we pursue a heart for God, our petitions to God should also be a desire for God’s will in our life and the lives of those around us.

Yet when I see people I love and care about scoff at you dear Lord, my heart aches. They discredit your name and worship the false gods of our age. I pray for a transformation of their heart, but nothing happens. I pray they will embrace a life for Christ, yet they continue in their ways. At times it seems God that you do not care that they profane your name.

In Daniel 9, I find that Daniel shares this feeling. He wants the destroyed temple in…
