Yes, you heard it right....getting down to business.....I have made out a list of those I pray for....and leaving room for the date of the answer! It's time to get down to business with Prayer and show God I believe in his power and glory...may those that are left behind find and praise God when reviewing the Prayer Journals once God takes me home!How I have found joy and comfort in the testimony of those who are before me and the answers to prayer that God has done over and over again for so many of his children....He shows his character by these answers and those unanswered!May God be praised!!PJ

The focus in my prayer closet these days is what is God's will? If I focus on His will and it's His will for me to pray for something specific, then He will always answer that prayer. For example, if the Holy Spirit has quickened for you to pray for someone's salvation, then God wants you to ask for that soul and He will answer your prayer accordingly. I'm finding without this quickening I can't effectively pray (meaning that God will answer my prayer).I'm sure this sounds rather simplistic but that's a promise we can lay our lives on.Here's the promise in the Word that I lean on heavily regarding the will of God (and there are others as well).1 John 5:14 And this is the boldness which we have toward him, that, if we ask anything according to his will, he heareth us:1 John 5:15 and if we know that he heareth us whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions which we have asked of him.
It was exciting reading your message PJ! I believe that your life and those around you will never be the same if you keep it up...how desperately we all need to get disciplined in our prayers!! thanks for the encouragement. God bless you!
Corrie ten Boom asked her local pastor why God muted her and laid her in that bed not able to ever leave the house again. She has tramped around the world for many years telling of God's salvation to others. She had many pictures of the people around the world that she had met up on the walls of her bedroom.Her Pastor told her, "Corrie, I believe the Lord now wants you to take on the ministry of Praying for these people." He said that she got her twinkle in her eyes back and nodded. Corrie ten Boom spent years praying in that bed. When we get to heaven....all will be revealed how wise God is! Search me oh God and search my heart if there be any wickness and sin....cleanse me and make me blameless in your eyes always and forever. I shall not say no when you purify my heart of everything leaving only the desire of You in it. Take away everything....even the gifts....nothing shall be left....nothing....but You...as it should be. No affection except the Love of You and You alone shall be left in my heart when you are through purifing me. Praise you God as I can!Many lives are in your hands when you decide to take on the business of Prayer...we must make sure that there is nothing hindering our prayers....Nothing. Revival and the salvation of lost souls are in the balance if God puts it upon your heart as he has mine. Pray and expect an answer in accordance ONLY with scripture....it is OUR responsibility to search the scriptures to make sure we are aright in the way we should pray and the conditions we must make sure are right in our lives to get our petitions heard. To God's glory only. Do not tell God what he must do for You. To God's glory we are created and to God's glory we should focus on. Get off the slip of You....it has never been about You....we are created for God...not for us to order God around...to God's glory.Not ONE Ego shall make it through the gates of Heaven. Egos will end up in Hell with the original Ego...Satan's.PJPJ
