When You Pray – Believe!

When you pray, believe that you will receive what you ask for. You are praying His will, right?

“Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.” Mark 11:24

Every time we pray, we can know that our prayer will be answered.

“How?”, you ask. Pray for what God wants to happen! We are releasing God’s will in the earth when we pray. But prayer demands relationship with Him so that we know what His will is. We have to be in right standing with Him. Prayer is God training me to be like Him.

He wants us to rule and reign. He wants us to make decrees and declarations of His will. As in heaven so on earth. We are His agents here on earth.

There is strategy involved. We check in with Him. He tells us what He wants done, and we speak it into existence in this realm. Sometimes it takes a little time to hear Him clearly. We are learning faith and patience. But when we know His will, we should pray and know that it will come to pass. And we should expect measurable results.

As hurricane Harvey has hit the Texas coast I have prayed over my neighborhood and surrounding neighborhoods and all of Katy. I actually took a prayer walk and prayed that God would protect us and cause the storm to dissipate and not do as much damage as they predicted it would. I suggested to my neighbors on our neighborhood website that they do the same thing. Many said that they were praying, too. Today, there was a tornado warning in our region. I went out and spoke to the storm clouds, “Peace, be still”. Jesus did it. He expects us to do what He did. And He gave us His authority to do it.

So just do it! And believe you will receive. Expect measurable results.

A Prayer for Homeschoolers

A Prayer for homeschoolers: 1-2-17

We Pray for homeschool families, parents, marriages, kids, wisdom in teaching each child and leading them in the way they should go. Protect homeschooling itself from those who oppose it and try to take away our rights to do it. We Pray for freedom to do it as we see fit.

We Pray for wisdom and understanding for each mother to hear God’s voice and prophetically parent their children so that they will prepare their children for their calling and election. Raise up these children to become leaders on the mountains they are called to.

Strengthen marriages and relationships within families. Protect families from attacks by the enemy.

Give homeschooling moms wisdom in leading their children to real relationship and intimacy with God.

Help the moms to only seek to please God, not man. We Pray that homeschool moms would allow no intimidation, no comparison or competition – only God’s will for their children.

That they would have wisdom and discernment as they study each child’s personality, learning style, interests, strengths, abilities, and needs.

We pray for the right friends and relationships outside of the family. Everything that shapes and influences them to train and prepare them for their calling. For them to have the courage of their conviction, to be fully equipped and strong in the Lord and the power of His might. To walk in love, in truth, in the Spirit and in power.

That they would not be pulled away by the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye, or the pride of life. Give them a hunger for the Word, for righteousness and for truth. And a love for God and His ways. And a love for others. For the fruits of the Spirit and gifts of the Spirit to operate in their lives. Discernment, wisdom, understanding, humility, and love to abide in their lives in abundance.

Prayer for My Son

20160316_212704

Show my son, Lord,
Who You are.
So he knows You up close
Not from afar.

Deliver him from doubts
And wounds and fear.
Shout to him, Lord
That You are here.

Lead him in the way
That he should go.
Reveal Your will,
So his purpose he’ll know.

Appear to him
In all Your glory.
Prove to him
You’re more than a story.

Come along beside him
As a faithful friend
Closer than a brother
Loyal to the end.

Give him strength and courage
To fight the good fight.
Help him to keep his post
Through the darkest night.

Grant unto him
The desires of his heart.
Bless him and fill him
With goodness to impart.

Saturate him
With Your love.
Give him wisdom
From above.

Anoint his head, Lord,
Fill his cup.
Shine light from his eyes
As he lifts his face up.

Wherever he goes
Make him salt and light
To rescue the perishing
Through Your power and might.

Use his gifts
Empower his hands
To perform Your works
Throughout the lands.

Let love be his trademark
And honor his creed
His life his sacred pledge
To help those in need.
