Blessings in His Grip - God's Gift of PrayerWednesday, September 14, 2011
We should also come before Him in prayer with expectancy and a willingness to hear from Him! We can feel confident that when we humble ourselves before God, He will hear all our prayers. “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us - whatever we ask - we know that we have what we asked of Him” (1 John 5:14-15).
I am excited to announce that, in collaboration with my good friend and prayer partner Tricia, I am starting a new page in connection to this blog. Its focus is on prayer and specifically, praying through the Scriptures. Hebrews 4:12 says that “God’s Word is alive and powerful, sharper than a two-edged sword.” When we speak and pray God’s Word, we are coming into agreement with Him, and demonstrating our faith in His answers. In her book, Praying God’s Word, Beth Moore puts it extremely well, “When you speak God’s word out loud with confidence in Him rather than in your own ability to believe, you are breathing faith. Believing and speaking the truth of God’s word is like receiving blessed CPR from the Holy Spirit.”
Please join Tricia and me as we pray through the scriptures. We will be posting verses and accompanying prayers every few days. In addition, we will be sharing ideas and resources that we hope will be an encouragement to you as you seek to draw closer to our Lord. You can find us by clicking on the link in the tab above (Blessings in His Grip) or directly by joining: Blessings in His Grip - God's Gift of Prayer. We hope you take a moment to explore the site and then, share how God has blessed you through prayer.
Living for Him,
This week, I am also linked up with Reflections of His Grace for Grace Cafe, Beholding Glory for Brag on God Friday and Spiritual Sundays with Charlotte and Ginger.
