Encouragement for the Moment

 

Come and sit and ask Him whatever is on your heart. No question is too small, no riddle to simple.  He has all the time in the world.  Come and seek the Will of God.

Max Lucado

 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

Matthew 7:7

Sunday’s Word – 14Oct12

 

Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.

 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:

Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;

 Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;

Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

Psalms 103:1-5

Encouragement for the Moment

To pray is to let Jesus into our lives. He knocks and seeks admittance, not only in the solemn hours of secret payer, He knocks in the midst of your daily work, your daily struggles,  your daily “grind”.  This is when you need Him the most.

Rejoice always,  pray continually,  give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

 

 

 

Encouragement for the Moment

Your prayers move God to change the world.  You may not understand the mystery of prayer. You don’t need to.  But this much is clear: Action in heaven begins when someone prays on the earth.  What an amazing thought!

 Max Lucado

 

 And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.

Matthew 21:22

Encouragement for the Moment

The possibilities of prayer are found in its allying itself with the purposes of God, for God’s purposes and man’s praying are the combination of all potent and omnipotent forces.

 E.M. Bounds

  

 And He who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God’s will.   And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.

Romans 8:27-28

 

 

Encouragement for the Moment

There comes times when I have nothing more to tell God.  If I were to continue to pray in words, I would have to repeat what I have already said.  At such times, it is wonderful to say to God, “May I be in Thy presence, Lord? I have nothing more to say to Thee, but I do love to be in Thy presence.”

 

O. Hallesby

 

But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.  And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

Matthew 6: 6-8
