Daily Devotional – 10/31/14 “Friday’s prayer!”

It’s Friday but have no fear for God has received your plea. He has! Oh, you thought He wasn’t listening? Someone told you He didn’t hear the cries of a sinner, He can’t hear your pleas from way down there; well they lied for 1 John 5:14 says, “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.” And not only that because then 1 John 5:15 picks up and says, “And if we know that he hears us–whatever we ask–we know that we have what we asked of him.” See, you can’t let what folk say to you stop you from going to God with your request; go with the confidence that it’s already done. Stop waiting until man has validated your prayer because they’ll water it down with mess and by the time it makes it to God’s ears it’s so full of misery, God don’t know what you’re praying for. Stop waiting on people to pray for you, pray for yourself sometime especially when you’re able to. God said approach me with confidence and then “And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith (Matthew 21:22).

Oh, you don’t know how to pray; it’s simple, just have a conversation with God but the bible says it like this … “Pray, then, in this way: ‘Our Father who is in heaven, Hallowed be Your name Your kingdom come. Your will be done, On earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen. Matthew 6:9-13” God is waiting to hear from you about you! He doesn’t need to hear from Pastor all the time about your ailment, go to God on your own behalf and see if He won’t work it out. Even on this Friday. Prayer changes things Saints! I didn’t just read about it because I know for myself. I didn’t have to ask anybody because I tried it.

My Heavenly Father, as I petition your throne I must first thank you for another day. Thank you for blessings and for your grace. Now, God I thank you for the person who is reading this now and God I ask you to increase their prayer life. God, for those who don’t know how to pray; I dispatch the anointing of the Holy Spirit over their lives now to intercede on their behalf to move in a mighty way. God turn living room into altars so that prayers may go forth. God, I ask that burdens are lifted and that lives are changed on this day to never be the same in a good way. Right now, I am standing in the gap praying for all those who are unable to pray for themselves and a special blessing for my nephew today because he is on my heart. Amen.
