PRAYER SURVEY

Newsweek’s own nationwide survey discovered:

  1. A stunning 87% of all Americans believe that prayer is answered by God.
  2. 82% asked for heath or success for a child or other family member when praying.
  3. 75% asked for strength to overcome personal weakness
  4. 85% don’t turn away from prayer even after prayers are not answered.

It has also been reported that all but a few medical doctors believe in God and 69% of doctors pray from time to time.

The real message is that prayer is truly of preeminent importance today.

WHY PRAY?

Why would God, who knows everything, ask us to pray when He already knows our needs before we ask?

Actually, prayer comes very naturally to us. There is even a yearning in our most innermost being that leads us to prayer. Where does this deep compulsion originate?

God designed us so that we might wish to know and be more like Him. We are “wired for God”. St. Augustine said,”You have made us for Yourself; and our hearts are restless until they find their rest in you.” We have been created for a purpose: to know, love and serve our God. So God wills us to develop an intimate fellowship with Him.

So we need to spend time together in silence and in the most intimate kind of discourse. Our prayer should be a deep soul conversation with our Creator, which was designed from the beginning.

Prayer in a community is also part of God’s plan, “where two or three are gathered in My name, there am I with them.” Matthew 18:20 In fact, there is more power in this form of prayer.

MIRACLE HOUR

THE MIRACLE HOUR
THE MIRACLE HOUR

…Could you not keep watch for one hour?”  Mark 14:37

Do you have problems with commitment to prayer? How about short five minutes segments in an hour? You can also just pray at a few spokes of the wheel.

It’s wonderful to start the day with the Lord, praying in the early hours before work begins. Having a set time and place for prayer has positive benefits, whether it is morning, noon or night.

Consider the “Miracle Hour” as an intensely loving “power encounter” with your heavenly Father. The more you can personalize them, and allow the Holy Spirit to lead you spontaneously in your own words, the more meaningful it will be. 

As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for You, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God? Psalm 42:1-2

Let us pray!

THE MIRACLE HOUR
THE MIRACLE HOUR
  1. PRAISE

People of praise are people of faith. Praise draws us into the abundant life in which God created us to live. When we praise God we acknowledge His supremacy in our lives. Praise draws us into His presence even when we don’t feel like it.

Let us praise God in all things. For the next five minutes just forget about yourself and concentrate on God. Between each segment you may wish to say the Our Father prayer or pray in the charismatic gift of tongues.

HAVING TWO MINDS

TWO MINDS

When Neymar’s Brazil won gold in its home Olympics in 2016, Neymar took the podium to receive his gold medal with a headband reading “100% Jesus.” Yet this ostensible display of devotion caused controversy, given the star player’s out of wedlock son and public love life. Fame and fortune are always dangerous to the Christian. 

TWO MINDSThere are those who have two minds because one is wavering or inconstant. This person has no settled principles. He is controlled by passion; he may be influenced by popular feeling. In other words, he is inclined to one opinion or course of conduct, and now to another. “A man is of two minds, unstable in all his ways.”      James 1:8 

TWO MINDS

David of the Old Testament commanded that Bathsheba’s husband, Uriah, be put at the front lines of the battle and that the troops be pulled back from him. Just as David had hoped, Uriah was killed. David then took Bathsheba as his wife.

David’s behavior presents a perfect example of a double-minded man. Even though he had God’s Life in his heart and had been “a man after God’s own heart,” he nevertheless chose to go with the tide and follow the lusts of his own flesh over what God was prompting him to do.

TWO MINDS

A double-minded man is unstable in all his ways. Are you unstable about your relationship to Christ?

If you lack wisdom, you must ask for it.

YOUR GUARDIAN ANGEL

THE THREE GUARDIAN ANGELS

Michael O’Brian is a popular Christian novelist, who has published many books. In his biography, On the Edge of Infinity”, page 63, he described what happened to him when he was about to make a drastic mistake by crossing on river ice that was very dangerous. He had been successful in crossing the first time, but on his return, the conditions of the ice changed drastically and he was too tired to notice the difference.

GUARDIAN ANGEL

He had just reached the edge of the river, when a car came along the road and stopped beside him. Inside the car were three young men, in their twenties, who asked “Where are you going?” Come with us and we will drive you to the bridge.”

To Michael the car seemed to come from nowhere and the three men looked unusual.  They were all unusually handsome and their faces were flawless. Their mannerisms were full of politeness and open-hearted goodness. One of them addressed Michael by name, which was by itself surprising. It appeared that God had arranged to come to his rescue at exactly the right time.

GUARDIAN ANGELAre they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister FOR them who shall be heirs of salvation?”                                                  Hebrews 1:14

The emphasis is on the word, “FOR”: your guardian angel will give you guidance and direction concerning the things in your life.

Remember the angel that came and awakened Peter and led him out of jail. They are waiting for you to give them orders just as a waiter cannot do anything for you until you give him the order.

Your guardian angel has many other angels working for your order: “Bring on all the ministering angels for Your glory, God.  I pray to cause all the needed finances be available for Your project, Lord.”

LISTEN TO YOUR GUARDIAN ANGEL

 LISTEN TO YOUR GUARDIAN ANGEL?

We have been trivializing angels for some time — turning them into good luck charms rather than acknowledging them as the powerful and important forces they are, when we listen. In the meantime, we are oblivious to the advantages to listen to your guardian angel.

Angel in my hair

Angels in My Hair: The True Story of a Modern-Day Irish Mystic   by Lorna Byrne is a Sunday Times Number One best seller that is translated in twenty-six languages: it tells readers that she is surrounded by angels. She explains in what form they appear to her and the ways in which they have helped her and others during difficult times.  This book will definitely change your view of angels and religion: life will be put in a different perspective.

Ms. Byrne writes, “We have become a very materialistic society, and so frequently we look at death and ask, ‘Is this it? I rot away and there is nothing more?’ I assure you there is more — much more. People are given proofs (of angels)while they are alive, but sometimes they have to look or listen very hard to recognize them.”

WHAT’S NEW ABOUT ANGELS?

You probably wondered if angels exist. You probably like to think that you have a guardian angel. You may have caught whispers of the angels at times in your life, and this book will assure you that the whispers are real. We will learn that our guardian angels as well as thousands of other angels are willing and waiting to offer us help if only we ask.  You don’t have to have a particular religious belief to be inspired to contact your own guardian angel.  Eventually, you may catch yourself saying later on in life, “why did it take so long for me to discover God and His angels.”

The angels are spiritual beings who have an intellect that is far superior to ours. People hear the angels talking to them but they frequently think it’s a silly thought and disregard what they are being told what to do.

Lorna Byrne writes about the angels talking to her and appearing to her; she tells us that there are countless angels among us, whether they choose to be visible or not and she tells us how to connect with angels: we all intuitively know how. Just talk to them: ask angels for their protection.

Lorna Byrne has the ability to see heavenly apparitions: angels that foretell the future and give direction. She claims she can see every individual’s guardian angel as “spirals of light”, sometimes hovering three paces behind the one they are protecting. In Lorna’s case, her angel identified a small one line advertisement for a cottage that she and her husband purchased.

Some of messages Lorna shares:
