PRAYER

Joining together as a church to seek the Lord in prayer.

Genuine and sincere prayer to God reflects the reality that Christianity is not a religion, but rather, a relationship. It is also a conduit through which God chooses to openly display Himself in the lives of His children by wonderful and miraculous works. Of course, to have this prayer relationship with God you must first believe in the Gospel. It’s through personal faith in the sacrifice and resurrection of Jesus Christ that you are forgiven, cleansed of your sins and enabled to enter the presence of God in prayer. While your prayer life is a daily dialogue with God it is also a daily discipline. Jesus exhorted His disciples to get alone with God, to avoid pretentious prayers full of empty, heartless repetition. Prayer should be dynamic and multi-faceted. In fact, He gave his disciples a model prayer as an outline to follow in Matthew 6:5-15.

Information about prayer

1. Relationship

Our Father in heaven. Remember that having believed in Jesus and His gospel you now approach God as His child. You don’t come on the basis of your work but on the basis of His work for you.

2. Reverence

Hallowed be your name. While we can be genuine and sincerely open with God without pretense, we remember simultaneously that we are addressing the Holy God who is the Maker of the universe and also our Maker. Therefore, we honor Him and remember that His very name is holy and to be hallowed. In a Christian culture that has gone overboard in an effort to make God relevant and relatable, we need to consider the words of the seraphim that fly around His throne day and night declaring, “Holy, Holy, Holy is the LORD of Hosts; The whole earth is full of His glory!” (Isaiah 6:3).

3. Submission

Your kingdom come Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. As Kingdom Citizens we are no longer pursuing our kingdom but His kingdom. Our chief desire is to see God’s will come to pass on earth in our generation. We have aligned ourselves with what matters to Him and have consequently submitted and surrendered completely to Him.

4. Dependence

Give us this day our daily bread. Humble dependence upon God was the pattern that Jesus laid down for us to follow. The truth is that as much as we would like to think we are in control, that is simply an illusion. GOD IS IN CONTROL. As we acknowledge this we learn daily, humble dependence upon Him to supply our needs and avoid the tendency to live independently from Him. You may be a mover and a shaker, you may have great position and influence, but the truth is you cannot even breathe without Him.

5. Confession

And forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Confession of your sins is where your relationship with God began but it is a continuous part of your relationship with Him. Daily confession cleanses you, reminds you of the importance of walking in righteousness, and helps you to remember how grave the issue of sin is to God. Your sin is what sent Christ to the cross.

6. Deliverance

Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. Paul said that our weapons of warfare are not fleshly in nature but mighty in God (2 Corinthians 10:4). God is your deliverer. He delivers you to victory over your adversary but that battle is not won in your power. It is won in His power. It is not a physical fight. It is a spiritual fight against wicked principalities and powers. And Christ alone has the power to make you more than a conqueror (Ephesians 6:10-20, Zechariah 4:6, Romans 8:37).

7. Worship

For Yours is the kingdom, power, glory forever AMEN. Worship is often consigned to corporate gatherings, but the adoration of God and the exaltation and affirmation of His beauty and magnificence is daily and forever. It is so important to get our eyes off of ourselves and our struggles and onto the Incomparable One. Your greatest need is to worship and you have been created to worship the Triune God.

8. Integrity

If you do not forgive others neither will your Father in heaven forgive you. God’s expectation is that as you come to Him asking for forgiveness, grace, and mercy, you are also freely giving those to the people who are asking you for them! Jesus was adamant about His disdain for hypocrisy and double standards in the lives of His disciples.

Dear friends,

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your prayers for my family in Ukraine. I was able to talk to them yesterday. They are alive, thanking to God.

Last night Russia bombed Dnipro and Zaporizhzhya again. People are out of electricity, water, and heat again. My family is 45 min of driving from Dnipro. My brother sent me a video yesterday of how they live now without water. A flash light is hanging on the wall for some light in a dark room. The plastic battle is hanging upside down to wash face and hands only. There was water, power, and heat outage for 2 days and nights again. Water is rusty and oily all the time. They have to buy water for drinking and cooking. The weather temperature is 17F today in their city. Even though they wore every warm peace of clothing they have, it's still freezing in their apartment, and they all are sick with flu. It's devastating. I really worry about them because today was no connection to them again after the Russians' strike yesterday. Please continue praying for my family's safety, electricity, water, and heat restoration and Michael and Angela's kidneys healing and they all recover from flu (Michael, Angela, Eugene). Please also pray for my fundraiser to provide for all my family in Ukraine needs and sponsorship for them to come here on Humanitarian Parole.

Prayer list: Tatyana, Michael, Angela, Eugene, Andrew, Alex-soldier, Nataya, Nikolay, peace in Ukraine, health and safety.

You and your loved ones and church are always in my prayers. Millions of blessings and good health to all of your, my dear sisters and brothers in Christ.

Tatyana.

Dear Lord, I come before you to pray over reconciliation with my ex husband and I. I have known you had a larger plan for us. I thank you for letting us come together again. Please equip us to serve you the best we can and to lead us with a foundation under you. I pray for strength, patience, and grace for one another as we are both fighting battles in our minds. We want to push past the thoughts the enemy is trying to start. I pray for you to give us fires in our heart for you as we heal. We both love you Lord and I ask anyone who has time to pray for us.

Please agree with me in prayer for every woman with an unplanned pregnancy that God would raise her awareness of her God given maternal instincts to protect her baby from every danger. Also pray the father’s paternal instincts would be activated so they step up and fulfill their responsibilities to protect, nurture and provide for the mother and his child. Please pray that their decisions would ultimately bring honor & glory to Almighty God. May no plan of the enemy succeed against them.

My now deceased Dad was a narcissist who chose me as his scapegoat all his life. I've lived a life straddling the poverty line while my siblings live large. My father was rich, but always said no to me. Yet, despite living paycheck to paycheck my one hope was that I was still in his will. Before he died, while under the throws of Alzheimer's my sociopath siblings convinced him to remove me as beneficiary to his monies from the will. This is not only unethical but immoral. They took it all. Millions. He put a no contest clause in the will. Besides, I can't afford an estate attorney even if that clause wasn't in the will. My one hope after a lifetime of struggle was that light at the end of the tunnel where I could one day retire, buy a house, etc. Now there is no light. I have health problems where I'm so tired with no stamina. I'm at the age where I should retire, but I'll be struggling well into my 90's working min wage while my siblings belong to the country club, vacation every month, have big houses, expensive cars, etc. They stole millions from me. I just want justice. I remember in the Old Testament the story of Joseph and his siblings plotted to kill him and throw him in a pit, but instead sold him into slavery. Later, Joseph rose in power to one of the richest most powerful men in all of Egypt and his siblings were starving in Israel and went down to beg the leadership for food. They didn't even recognize Joseph when they begged. I want that kind of Divine Justice. I also want to have some joy and rest in this life before it's over. Please pray for me. Thanks
