Today is different.  I started my day with prayer as usual and did my regular chores for the day.  What is remarkable is that I am off from work and I am able to take my daughter to school.

It seemed perfect! Just the way I have always wanted it.  My husband got up, got showered and dressed for work and came out to my prayer den with a wide smile and holding Jaiden Rae in his hand.  We all kissed and hugged and my heart was overjoyed.

Just as I know, it could be.  It took eight year for us to be there and I will enjoy every moment of it. Eight long years for me, to finally submit, and for me to give it all to Christ.  Eight long years for me to rid myself of every ounce of bitterness and un-forgiveness and eight year, to start all over from the beginning, wiping the slate clean.

The last days were hard because I was always holding on to something else that I thought I was entitled to. Today I am enjoying the fruits of hard work and grace and mercy, letting go and let God.

I dropped my daughter off to school and I watched her play; as I handed the paperwork over to the teacher and say my New Year’s greeting. There is a peace that comes with watching my child finding her way and knowing her place in the world.

For years, we have prayed for Jaiden Rae to be bold and today again we are seeing just that.  Father I thank you for the small benefits of life.

One of the teachers mentioned I could take a group and read stories to them.  I did it and it was an experience for me to read to my daughter and friends at her school.  We hugged, we kissed and then it was time to leave. I called Gardner and shared the great news with him.  He was delighted.

My Prayer

Dear God, I thank you for the big and small things in my life.  Thanks you that I was able to get the day off from work to take my child in to school. I am grateful for all that, you have done. Please help me to see how much you love and care for me.  I give you back today; help me to walk in your will and to appreciate all things. Amen!

God Honors Consistent Prayer


Luke 18:1-8 (NIV) “Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. He said: “In a certain town there was a judge who neither feared God nor cared about men. And there was a widow in that town that kept coming to him with the plea, ‘Grant me justice against my adversary….”

The purpose of Prayer Works Café was born out of the passion to pray.  I grew up praying and therefore my life is built on the foundation of prayer. Prayer is a heart communication between man and God.

This is a vital part of a believer’s development.  Talking to God can be compared to a conversation with man.  The enemy has created several lies around who can and should pray.

The difference between praying to God is that you can be totally candid and through the Holy Spirit over a period of time the conversation will be developed from perhaps one word to several words.

Another dimension can be from words to praying scriptures. Meaning, the Holy Spirit helps with building a spiritual or a supernatural vocabulary. He teaches on what to pray, how to pray and develop a sensitivity around when to pray.

Listening

Listening is a key component of praying.  Like any conversation there is a messenger and the recipient; this role is interchangeable for the duration of the conversation.

The same is with prayer.  We pray and we should be listening to hear what God has to say.

Who should pray?            

Hebrews 4:16 (KJV) “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”

The only condition in this command  is to “…come boldly…” Therefore anyone and everyone should pray.  God is very much interested in our prayers.  Sometimes He answers immediately and at other times there is a waiting process.

How to Pray

Following the format of the Lord’s Prayer works greatly. Matthew 6:13-19

  • Acknowledge The Lord (Call Him by name, He is our Father)
  • Praise His Name (Offer Praises to God)
  • Pray for his will to happen
  • Ask for what you need, be specific
  • Ask for his leading
  • Pray for his deliverance
  • End with more praise

When to pray

1 Thessalonians 5:17 “Pray without ceasing.”

This is a command which means pray always. Therefore we are to be praying every time, everywhere, and anytime. Pray constantly! It’s limitless!

It is important for us to develop a healthy habit to communicate with God on a consistent basis. Prayer is a tool which is used in warfare against the devil.

No prayer and the believer die spiritually, more prayer and the believer steps into a deeper depth, and higher heights with God.

Through prayer a covenant relationship is created with God and man. “A prayer-less Believer is a powerless Believer.”
