Recently I have been doing a study on God's Restraining Grace where God reaches out to unchristians and
Christians alike and at His discretion prevents one from committing sin.
Now that I have a better understanding of Restraining Grace I can see in my past where God has done
this for me. I think it goes along with "lead me not into temptation and deliver me from evil."
So, here is another area in my life and in the life of others where I/we need to thank…Continue

Colossians 4:2 "Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving."
So, I think this verse says, while in prayer be watchful.
My question, what are we to watch for?
Therefore David blessed the LORD in the presence of all the assembly. And David said:
“Blessed are you, O LORD, the God of Israel our father, forever and ever.
Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours.
Yours is the kingdom, O LORD, and you…Continue

Prerequisite for all who aspire to pray:
"Now set your mind and heart to seek the LORD your God.
Arise and build the sanctuary of the LORD God,
so that the ark of the covenant of the LORD and the holy vessels of God may be brought into a
house built for the name of the LORD.”
(1 Chronicles 22:19 ESV)

This prayer is written in old English, but don't let that dissuade you, it is very good.
Prayer of Anselm:
O wretched lot of man, when he hath lost that for which he was made! O hard and terrible fate! Alas, what has he lost, and what has he found? What has departed, and what remains? He has lost the blessedness for which he was made, and has found the misery for which he was not made. That has departed without which nothing is happy, and that remains which, in…

 Then King David went in and sat before the LORD and said, “Who am I, O LORD God, and what is my house, that you have brought me thus far?
 And this was a small thing in your eyes, O God. You have also spoken of your servant's house for a great while to come, and have shown me future generations, O LORD God!
 And what more can David say to you for honoring your servant? For you know your servant.
 For your servant's sake, O LORD, and according to your…Continue

The following appeared in my Church Bulletin last Sunday, I thought it important enough to put on the Pray Network:
Ian and Darlene
Ministry to Muslims
In out last journal we hinted at some new relationships God has put in our path: a loose network of Underground Christians, the fragile shoots of a new Church growing in extremely hostile soil.
These Underground Christians face opposition on two fronts: external and internal.
Externally, their conversion…Continue

When you come to God in prayer, do you come trembling before the Living God?
Or do you come boldly?
We are admonished to do both. Yes we are to come boldly, but not glibly, insincerely, or superficially.
But with respect, with reverence, with humility, with awe at the incomprehensible God.
And when you start your prayers, do not start with a laundry list of requests
It is better to first, spend some time in confession, in praise, in worship and…Continue

And they sing the song of Moses,
the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying,
“Great and amazing are your deeds,
O Lord God the Almighty!
Just and true are your ways,
O King of the nations!
Who will not fear, O Lord,
and glorify your name?
For you alone are holy.
All nations will come
and worship you,
for your righteous acts have been revealed.”
Revelation 15:3-4 ESV

 In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one;
 and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God,
 praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints,
 and also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim…Continue

But you, beloved, building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit,
keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life.
And have mercy on those who doubt;
save others by snatching them out of the fire; to others show mercy with fear, hating even the garmen] stained by the flesh.

Pray for the Holy Spirit to convict the world of Sin, and Righteousness and Judgement
 But I have said these things to you, that when their hour comes you may remember that I told them to you. “I did not say these things to you from the beginning, because I was with you.
 But now I am going to him who sent me, and none of you asks me, ‘Where are you going?’
 But because I have said these things to you, sorrow has filled your…Continue
