Prayer is that invisible power, that invisible source, that invisible force that nations can’t stop it, governments can’t stop it. There is nothing there is nothing in this world, economies can’t stop it, prayer changes economies, prayer changes governments, prayer changes nations, prayer changes families, prayer changes things and no wonder satan doesn’t want you praying, no wonder satan doesn’t want you to know how much power you have, how much authority you have, how much ability you have in prayer because he wants to keep the nation in the dark
The devil wants us powerless the rest of our lives and if we remain ignorant to the power of prayer we will remain powerless to experiencing all that God has for us and all that God wants to do in your family, in your, life in your relatives, in your business, in your finances, in your health, in your home.
Prayer changes everything and Satan is robbing Christians of the power or prayer. You take your sick loved one to a doctor and the doctor says we’ve done everything we know how to do all that’s left to do is pray. In other words there is nothing else to resort to, they go to it and look to prayer as the last resort as if well there is nothing we can do so you might as well see if there is anything God can do.
How about just start with God we know nothing is impossible with you nothing is too difficult for you and I ask you right now to intervene in this situation and I thank you father that not only can I ask you and I do and receive it by faith and I also speak to this situation with the authority that you gave me to speak it speak to it and I command it to change in Jesus’ name. We all have problems. Get your problems out in the open. Don’t try to pretend you don’t have problems. Don’t try to act like you don’t have issues. Get them out in the open. Write them down on a piece of paper and then take them to God in prayer and watch them change.
You got people in your lives that are issues, you got people in your life that are problem people, everybody has got difficult people in their life right? Listen how do you deal with difficult people. It’s really easy. Pray for them. It’s loving in the spirit, prayer for others is loving in the spirit. But difficult people are easy to deal with in prayer. Go to God, they’re your enemy. When a person’s being difficult they kind of like your enemy.
The Bible says pray for your enemies, pray for that difficult person. God, Lord bless that person. Lord ease that person’s pain whatever is causing them to be such a difficult person in Jesus name I pray. You pray like that, God understands. You pray a blessing on them. Pray that God will speak to them pray that God will reveal something to them that God will open their eyes. That’s how you deal with difficult people. Every nation and every evil kingdom seeks for an invincible power but no one can find it because the only invincible power that cannot be quenched and cannot fail is the power of prayer. Amen.
To think that Jesus said pray that your joy may be made full tells us that prayer produces joy and happiness. That Paul said be anxious for nothing but in everything with prayer and supplication let the let your requests be made known to God and the peace of God with thanksgiving and the peace of God which surpasses all understanding will guard your heart and mind in Christ Jesus.
That the power of prayer produces joy, that the power of prayer produces peace. Well we could just go on and on. Pray the prayer of faith James said and it will heal the sick, how the power of prayer brings healing. Anything you need God has given us the power to pray and see it happen.
…great multitudes followed Him, and He healed them all.
It didn’t matter who they were or what kinds of past these people had. As long as they sought Him for healing, Jesus healed them gladly and graciously. He never asked them what they had done or not done, or if they had repented. He never asked them to sign a pledge to follow Him and never told anyone that He would not heal them because they deserved to be sick.
Surely, none of them were perfect in their thought life or behavior. Surely, there were some who came to Him without strong faith. Yet, all this didn’t matter to Jesus. All that mattered to Him was that they had been suffering and needed to be set free.
Beloved, see this compassionate Savior when you come to Him for healing. He puts no demands and no conditions on you. He simply wants to heal you and set you free!
The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge. They have no speech, they use no words; no sound is heard from them. Yet their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world. In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun. It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, like a champion rejoicing to run his course. It rises at one end of the heavens and makes its circuit to the other; nothing is deprived of its warmth. The law of the Lord is perfect, refreshing the soul. The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple. The precepts of the Lord are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the Lord are radiant, giving light to the eyes. The fear of the Lord is pure, enduring forever. The decrees of the Lord are firm, and all of them are righteous. They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the honeycomb. By them your servant is warned; in keeping them there is great reward. But who can discern their own errors? Forgive my hidden faults. Keep your servant also from willful sins; may they not rule over me. Then I will be blameless, innocent of great transgression. May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer. (Psalm 19:1-14 NIV)
By David Wilkerson
God doesn’t want your home, your car, your furniture, your savings, your possessions. All He wants is your faith—your strong belief in His Word. And that may be the one thing that other, more spiritual-appearing people lack. You may look at another person as being more spiritual than you but that person may actually be struggling hard to keep up an appearance of righteousness. Yet, as God looks at you, He declares, “There is a righteous man or woman.” Why?
Because you have admitted your helplessness to become righteous and trusted in the Lord to give you His righteousness.
Paul tells us we are counted as righteous in God’s eyes for the same reason Abraham was. “Therefore it was imputed to [Abraham] for righteousness. Now it was not written for his sake alone, that it was imputed to him; but for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead” (Romans 4:22-24).
You may claim, “I believe this! I have faith in the God who resurrected
Jesus.” Yet, here are some questions for you: Do you believe the Lord can resurrect your troubled marriage? Do you believe He can bring to life a spiritually dead relative? Do you believe He can raise you up out of the pit of a debilitating habit? Do you believe He can erase your cursed past and restore to you all the years that have been wasted?
When everything looks hopeless—when you are in an impossible situation, with no resources and no hope before you—do you believe God will be your Jehovah Jirah, seeing to your need? Do you believe He is committed to keeping His promises to you and that if even one of His words should fail, the heavens would melt and the universe collapse?
“For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: so shall my word be that goeth
forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall
accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I
sent it” (Isaiah 55:10-
GOOD MORNING. Short SUNDAY school lesson worth reading.
Last night my daughter and I were dissecting scriptures. Taking WORDS and looking up the definitions then putting the definitions in the scripture. Just like I taught in discipleship YEARS AGO and have done here so many times. WHEW WHEW. then we READ THE PASSAGE OUT LOUD as though praying it. HEALING FELL ON US. HOPE REVIVED. SO awesome when you truly study. Not just read but study. Disciples is defined as learner. Student.
SO. Read this long passage OUT LOUD. then read it again in silence. Close your eyes And picture this moment in Daniels life. And remember. The God Of Daniel is OUR GOD TODAY. Then PRAY OVER your family. Pray over communities. NO WORDS.
“On the twenty-fourth day of the first month I was standing on the bank of the great river, the Tigris. I looked up and to my surprise saw a man dressed in linen with a belt of pure gold around his waist. His body was hard and glistening, as if sculpted from a precious stone, his face radiant, his eyes bright and penetrating like torches, his arms and feet glistening like polished bronze, and his voice, deep and resonant, sounded like a huge choir of voices.
“I, Daniel, was the only one to see this. The men who were with me, although they didn’t see it, were overcome with fear and ran off and hid, fearing the worst. Left alone after the appearance, abandoned by my friends, I went weak in the knees, the blood drained from my face.
“I heard his voice. At the sound of it I fainted, fell flat on the ground, face in the dirt. A hand touched me and pulled me to my hands and knees.
“‘Daniel,’ he said, ‘man of quality, listen carefully to my message. And get up on your feet. Stand at attention. I’ve been sent to bring you news.’ “When he had said this, I stood up, but I was still shaking. “‘Relax, Daniel,’ he continued, ‘don’t be afraid. From the moment you decided to humble yourself to receive understanding, your prayer was heard, and I set out to come to you. But I was waylaid by the angel-prince of the kingdom of Persia and was delayed for a good three weeks. But then Michael, one of the chief angel-princes, intervened to help me. I left him there with the prince of the kingdom of Persia. And now I’m here to help you understand what will eventually happen to your people. The vision has to do with what’s ahead.’
“While he was saying all this, I looked at the ground and said nothing. Then I was surprised by something like a human hand that touched my lips. I opened my mouth and started talking to the messenger: ‘When I saw you, master, I was terror-stricken. My knees turned to water. I couldn’t move. How can I, a lowly servant, speak to you, my master? I’m paralyzed. I can hardly breathe!’
“Then this humanlike figure touched me again and gave me strength. He said, ‘Don’t be afraid, friend. Peace. Everything is going to be all right. Take courage. Be strong.’ “Even as he spoke, courage surged up within me. I said, ‘Go ahead, let my master speak. You’ve given me courage.’
“He said, ‘Do you know why I’ve come here to you? I now have to go back to fight against the angel-prince of Persia, and when I get him out of the way, the angel-prince of Greece will arrive. But first let me tell you what’s written in The True Book. No one helps me in my fight against these beings except Michael, your angel-prince.’” (Daniel 10:4-21 MSG)
God’s promise is going to carve through all that is wrong in your life right now and get you into God’s destiny. But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit for the Spirit searches all things, the deep things of God, but then the Holy Spirit takes what is written and reveals these things to us.
1 Corinthians 2:9-12 says,
“No eye has seen, no ear has heard,and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.”But it was to us that God revealed these things by his Spirit. For his Spirit searches out everything and shows us God’s deep secrets.
No one can know a person’s thoughts except that person’s own spirit and no one can know God’s thoughts except God’s own Spirit. And we have received God’s Spirit (not the world’s spirit), so we can know the wonderful things God has freely given us.So to walk in God’s purpose and begin to seize your destiny, you go through the door of God’s love. You go through the door of God’s promise, this day this scripture. And you go through the door of the Spirit of God.
What God has for you is BEYOND YOUR WILDEST DREAMS.You need the Holy Spirit to lead you into all that God has for you. Walking in the Spirit doesn’t mean trying to be more spiritual than somebody else. Walking in the spirit means being in agreement with God’s word because when you agree with God you’re in the spirit.If God were to reveal to you all that He has for you, one of two things would happen.You either wouldn’t believe it or you would believe it and you would be either in pride, “Aw, man, yeah, I’m awesome; I’m so great.” You’ll get puffed up with pride or you’ll try to force it and make it happen and God, He doesn’t want you to make it happen; He is really good at making it happen, amen? I don’t know what my life is going to look like five years from now. Five years ago I didn’t know. I mean, I had some hopes, I had some dreams. I’ve got some more hopes, I’ve got some more dreams but God doesn’t reveal everything at one time. He reveals it in pieces so we can digest it. He reveals it in pieces so we can embrace it one piece at a time. He reveals it in pieces so that we can have it done to us according to our faith.
TRUST HIM WITH YOUR DREAM!He began by saying to them, “Today this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.” Luke 4:21
There is so much more to this message I want to share with you, that I believe will truly bless you and unlock your God-given destiny and dream. I can’t share the whole life-changing teaching on this page… I want you to get a hold of the full message that not only explains that God has appointed truly amazing dreams and promises for you – but it will give you practical steps to see those dreams become reality! -

God has so much He wants to give you. His desire is to “open you the windows
of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to
receive it” (Malachi 3:10). He stand in a full storehouse, saying, “I am a

are not to be satisfied with what we think is a lot! Many Christians are
satisfied to sit in church and be blessed by God’s presence. Such people are
no more than “satisfied sponges” soaking up everything—but they limit God
in their lives, when He so wants to anoint them for service.
When the disciples marveled at Christ’s miracles, Jesus replied, “God has
an ever greater work for you!” Most of us are like the disciples. We see one
miracle, and we are satisfied to talk about it for the rest of our lives. Yet,

* We would reach into the heavenlies by faith, believing God to bring down
the godless leaders in local, state and federal agencies. We would bring down
principalities and powers, as God said!
* We would believe God to help us saturate our city with the gospel of Jesus
Christ. We would stand up in faith against every weapon aimed against us, and
we would be putting down satanic stronghold in our families and churches.
Our vision would be limitless. We would believe God for even greater things for

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria
Right now, there are hundreds of radio frequencies in the air, hundreds of television signals all around you. But, you don’t hear them all. The reason is that you’re not tuned in. If you tune a radio or television to one of those frequencies, then you would pick up the signal.
In the same way, God is constantly transmitting to us. He wants to lead us, guide us, protect us and give us insight. But too often, we’re not tuned to His frequency. You have to pay attention to Him and learn His voice. God doesn’t speak to us most of the time out loud. He speaks to us through subtle things. He leads us by peace inside.
The best way to “tune in to His frequency” is by reading and meditating on His Word. The more know His Word, the more you know His voice. It’s like when you constantly tune in to a radio station and learn that DJ’s voice, you’ll recognize that voice when you are in a restaurant or at the mall. It’s the same idea. Tune in to God’s Word, tune in to Him and let Him lead you and guide you into victory all the days of your life!
A PRAYER FOR TODAY
Father, thank You for leading me and guiding me in Your truth. I choose to tune in to You, I choose to tune in to Your Word. Help me to hear Your voice so that I can follow Your leading all the days of my life in Jesus’ name. Amen.
— Joel & Victoria Osteen
“I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.”
(Philippians 1:6, NLT)
TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria
It’s interesting that the last thing Jesus said on the cross was “it is finished.” It certainly looked like the end. It looked like it was over. But I believe that wasn’t just a statement of fact; it was a statement of faith. He was saying to His Father, “I’ve done My part. I’ve fulfilled My destiny. Now I’ve got total trust and confidence in You that You are going to finish what You started.” Even though it looked like the end, in reality, it was only the beginning.
Remember this when things look dark in your own life, when things aren’t going your way. Dare to make that declaration of faith just like Jesus. “It is finished.” What you’re really saying is, “God, I know You are going to turn this situation around. I know You are going to heal my body. I know You are going to restore my family. I know You are going to give me the breaks that I need.” Don’t go around complaining. Speak victory over your circumstances. Trust that He is faithful and He will finish what He’s started in you!
A PRAYER FOR TODAY
Father, thank You for Your faithfulness in my life. Thank You for completing what You’ve started in my life. Today I choose to put my trust and hope in You, knowing that You are working behind the scenes to bring victory in Jesus’ name. Amen!
— Joel & Victoria Osteen
Today I have given you the choice between life and death…Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live!
Deuteronomy 30:19, NLT
You can choose life today when you realize that life and death are in the power of your tongue (Proverbs 18:21).
This is how you choose life practically and reign in it every day: Instead of complaining about your symptoms, simply thank God for His gift of righteousness and declare your righteousness in Christ.
Say this prayer with me:
Jesus, thank You for not just loving me and removing my sins, but for also giving me Your everlasting righteousness. You ARE my righteousness—today, tomorrow and forevermore. And because I am righteous, I will REIGN IN LIFE through You. I will reign over sin and sickness, and live a life that glorifies You! Amen!
GOD IS SPEAKING CLEARLY
by David Wilkerson
[May 19, 1931 – April 27, 2011]
God is still speaking clearly to us today. His heavenly voice is sounding
mightily throughout the earth and that voice is coming through a Man—Jesus—who is seated at the right hand of the Father. Consider these words from Hebrews:
“For ye are not come unto the mount that might be touched, and that burned
with fire, nor unto blackness, and darkness, and tempest, and the sound of a trumpet, and the voice of words; which voice they that heard entreated that the word should not be spoken to them any more: (For they could not endure that which was commanded, And if so much as a beast touch the mountain, it shall be stoned, or thrust through with a dart: and so terrible was the sight, that Moses said, I exceedingly fear and quake:)
“But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the
heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, to the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, and to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.
“See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who
refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven: whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also
heaven. And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things
that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be
shaken may remain” (Hebrews 12:18-27).
Do you get the picture from this passage? When God spoke the first time, the people answered, “Don’t speak to us from heaven anymore. Speak to us
through a man.” And Moses prophesied, “Just as you’ve asked, God is going
to raise up a prophet. He will be fully human—and He’ll speak God’s words
Jesus was that promised prophet. He was God incarnate, the Lord in human flesh.
He had a ministry on earth as a man, and a multitude of witnesses saw Him ascend to heaven as a man. Now He has a mystical body, which is His Church. But Jesus is still a man made of flesh—still touched with the human feelings we all experience.
Today, in these last days, God is speaking once more from heaven and telling us that He is going to shake everything in sight.
Do not worry! Earthly goods deceive the human heart into believing that they give it security and freedom from worry. But in truth, they are what cause anxiety. The heart which clings to goods receives with them the choking burden of worry. Worry collects treasures, and treasures produce more worries. We desire to secure our lives with earthly goods; we want our worrying to make us worry-free, but the truth is the opposite. The chains which bind us to earthly goods, the clutches which hold the goods tight, are themselves worries.
Abuse of earthly goods consists of using them as a security for the next day. Worry is always directed toward tomorrow. But the goods are intended only for today in the strictest sense. It is our securing things for tomorrow which makes us so insecure today. It is enough that each day should have its own troubles. Only those who put tomorrow completely into God’s hand and receive fully today what they need for their lives are really secure. Receiving daily liberates me from tomorrow.
“But strive first for the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. So do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring worries of its own. Today’s trouble is enough for today.” Matthew 6:33-34
Questions to Ponder
If “worry collects treasures, and treasures produce more worries,” how might one stop worrying?
How can we tell the difference between what we really “need” for our lives and what we think we need but really only want? Can we be content with what we really need?
Practically speaking, what would it mean to stop our “abuse of earthly goods” and “put tomorrow completely into God’s hand”?
How precious is your steadfast love, O God!
All people may take refuge in the shadow of your wings.
They feast on the abundance of your house,
and you give them drink from the river of your delights.
For with you is the fountain of life;
in your light we see light. Psalm 36:7-9
Write down your worries of today.
Reflect on why you have these worries.
How many of them have to do with things you have or want to have?
Explore ways in which trusting God for today and tomorrow might relieve your worry and fear.
Pray for the people you know who are worried or afraid. Ask God to deliver them from their worries by increasing their trust in God’s providential care.
Prayer for Today
Lord, I place my worries in your gracious hand and live this day trusting that you are with me and that what I have is more than I need.
with the small measure of spiritual knowledge, experience, and love that has been given to us, and that we must constantly be seeking the great gifts. Then we complain that we lack the deep certainty, the strong faith, and the rich experiences that God has given to other Christians, and we consider these complaints to be pious. We pray for the big things and forget to give thanks for the small (and yet really not so small!) gifts we receive daily. How can God entrust great things to those who will not gratefully receive the little things from God’s hand?
You will say in that day: I will give thanks to you, O Lord, for though you were angry with me, your anger turned away, and you comforted me. Surely God is my salvation; I will trust, and will not be afraid, for the Lord GOD is my strength and my might; he has become my salvation. With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation. And you will say in that day: Give thanks to the Lord, call on his name…. Isaiah 12:1-4
A healthy Christian is one of the liveliest creatures on earth. When he is at work you may hear him sing. He cannot help it; do not blame him for a little noise. Let him sing, and laugh till he cries. Sometimes he cannot help it; he will burst if his soul may not have vent. When he begins to talk about his Lord his eyes flash fire. Some people hint that he is out of his mind; but those who know best assure us that he was never before so sane as now. Of course, the world thinks religion is such poor stuff that nobody could grow excited about it. To my mind, cold religion is the nastiest dish ever brought to table. True godliness is served up hot. Newness of life means a soul aglow with love to God, and therefore earnest, zealous, happy. Let the believing man have space for his larger life, swing for his grander joy. Nay, do not gag him; let him sing his new song. If any man out of heaven has a right to be happy, it is the man who lives in newness of life. Come, beloved, I want you to go home to-day with the resolve that the newness of life shall be more apparent in your walk. Do not live the old life over again. Why should you? What good would come of it? — Charles Spurgeon, “Christ’s Resurrection and Our Newness of Life”
