“Psalm 100:4 and Pt. 9
Psalm 100:4
Enter into His gates with Thanksgiving, And into His courts with Praise. Be Thankful to Him, and bless His Name.
+How Thankful are unto the Lord?
+We enter our Lord’s courts with praise.
+Thanksgiving, Praise and Worship are not the same, but they work very well together when ministering unto the Lord.
+Thanksgiving is showing appreciation, gratitude and thankfulness to God for what He has done for us.
+Praise is acknowledging all of God’s Attributes.
+Worship is to put God Before and Above everyone and everything, and live the lifestyle that bears the Fruits of that Worship.
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for your life. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus Loves us while keeping our Faith, Trust and Confidence in Him.
•BLESSED you are and BLESSED you will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!”

“The Power Of Prayer🔥🔥🔥🔥
Ephesians 6:18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
Prayer means hope. Prayer means help. Prayer means relief. Prayer means power. And a lot of it.
Lord, We ask that you forgive us for the times when we haven’t valued or believed in the power of prayer that you offered to us. We want to learn to pray in faith. We will grow closer to you. We want to experience this kind of confidence and freedom to believe You, rely on You, and go into battle with You. Guide us, as we pray, as we try to trust You more. Train us, and Equip us. Make us a mighty warrior in prayer. Be glorified through us as We trust in You. In Jesus Name, Amen. Hallelujahs To Jesus 🙌🏼🙌🏼


“God is not unjust; He will not forget your work and the love you have shown him. (Hebrews 6:10)
From time to time, we all need to be refreshed and renewed. In our weariness we start to doubt our love for God and possibly even his great love for us. Paul reminds us not to grow slack, sluggish, weary or lukewarm in our personal relationship with Jesus Christ, who knows, sees and remembers the good that we have done. Blessed assurance tells us that Jesus is ours and that we are his—forever! Thank you, Heavenly Father, for remembering me only in light of your love! (Psalm 25:7)
Holy Spirit, help me never to forget. I will rejoice!

A cheerful heart is good medicine. (Prov. 17:22)
Being cheerful in the midst of the myriad of problems we face in the world today can be a difficult task. The only real solution is to keep our eyes fixed on Jesus and to claim the mind, the heart and the promises of Christ in every hour of every day. Satan’s primary goal is to distract and depress us, to spread fear, anger and condemnation. Thank you, Holy Spirit, for pouring into us every grace that we need to praise you night and day, that we might be poured out like a libation of joy, gladness and good cheer for others. Smile and stay in the Word. Alleluia!

Past Prayer 7

This entry is part of the “Past Prayer Series” .

January 3,2011

Father God, I want to thank You for waking me up this morning, breathing air into my lungs and opening my eyes. God I want to thank You for new mercies every morning. I want to thank You for your protection over my family and me.

Father God, I’ve realized that it is not about me. I cannot want to bring someone to Your truth for my own benefit. It is a choice to live by Your commands and to follow Your ways. I cannot and will not try to influence someone to go to You for my own benefit. Please forgive me for my selfish ways and my selfish actions.

What You want from us(everyone) is a relationship, a real relationship. I pray that according to Your will, O God, *Kayden will come to You with an open and humble heart. According to Your will he will turn from his ways and turn to You.

Today I step away from wanting to bring him to You for my own sake. I step away from my own desires and wants. I step into Your will for my life. I step into doing Your work by sharing Your love and gospel with others. I give myself  away that You can use me. I pray that my own thoughts or actions may not get in the way of You using me. This I pray to You God.

Thank You for Your love, mercy, and faithfulness. Thank You for being an awesome God.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

One of the reasons I wrote this prayer was because I realized that I wanted a friend to be a Christian because I liked him. This is actually being selfish. I knew that we, as Christians, are not to be unequally yoked with unbelievers(2 Corinthians 6:14) so I figured if he(the friend) would just want to please God with his life then it would be okay for me to think the way I thought; which was since he is a Christian there would not be anything wrong with me wanting to be in a relationship with him. I was totally wrong and selfish because I wanted him to go to  God to justify me liking him and wanting to be with him. The unselfish thought would have been and should have been: I want him to go to God to receive salvation, to experience the love of God, so that his soul will be saved, and he won’t be lead astray into a life of unnecessary pain and troubles.

I shared this prayer to show that there is nothing wrong with praying for others. As Christians, it is part of our duty when we reach a certain level of maturity in our growth with God, to pray for others. We just have to be mindful of our own intentions and desires when praying for others. James 4:1-3 says,

“What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you? You want something but don’t get it. You kill and covet, but you cannot have what you want. You quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask God.When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.”

Once again, when praying for others be mindful of your desires and your motives, if they are not with love or in the will of God it most likely will not happen. This is probably why some people in the body of Christ have unanswered prayers. Let’s pray

Father God, we want to thank you for this day that we are able to acknowledge You and give You thanks. We thank You for waking us up this morning and giving us another chance to please You and do Your will. We thank You for your word of truth. Father, we repent of the sins we have committed against You in thought, word and deed; we repent of the sins we have committed against you of omission and commission, and of our sins seen and unseen. We ask for your forgiveness of these sins and we ask that you will give us the strength to turn away from the sins that so easily besets us and displeases You. We thank You for Your forgiveness and we thank You for giving us strength to turn away from our sins and turn to You. Father we ask that you will search our hearts, try us and know our thoughts: and see if there be any wicked way in us, and lead us in the way everlasting in Jesus’ name. In Jesus’ name we ask that You help us not to lean on our own understanding but to acknowledge You in ALL our ways. In the name of Jesus, I bind the distractions and tricks of the enemy that keep Your people away from Your word. In the name of Jesus’ I loose Your Holy Spirit, O God, to lead us and guide us in all truth, to give us spiritual wisdom, knowledge, and understanding that we will be diligent to present ourselves approved by You, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. Father God, we thank You for Your word of truth, we thank You for forgiving us of our sins, we thank You for Your will for our lives, we thank You for loving us unconditionally, we praise and glorify You for You are God Almighty; You alone are God; You were, are, and forever will be. God You are mighty, You are powerful, You are omnipresent – everywhere at once; omnipotent – all-powerful; omniscient – all-knowing. You know the beginning and the end. Hallelujah to the true and living God. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Amen.

Supportive scriptures used: 2 Timothy 2:15(Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.),

James 4:1-3,

2 Corinthians 6:14(Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion hath light with darkness? ),

Psalm 139:23( Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me and know my anxieties; and see if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.),

Proverbs 3:5-6( Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.)

Even in Pain

 I’ve noticed that when David talks to the Lord He describes the way he feels and what he is going through. In some Psalms David sounds depressed or in anguish, like he’s hit rock bottom (you can see this at the end of some of his Psalms).But even after all Davids depressing thoughts, Gods light shines through the darkness David is in. Davids focus then becomes the Truth of God himself; he brings praise and glory to God.

Sometimes I wonder, “How was he able to give praise to God when he felt discouraged and depressed?”

I think it was because David was able to stop focusing on himself and focus on God instead.

Psalm 102:1-17 (the writer of this Psalm is not David but someone who felt pain and still praised God.
