Watch and Pray "Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak." (Matthew 26:41) At the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus took Peter, James and John with him as he was praying in deep agony and sorrow for the things that are to take place. The disciples were asked to watch and pray while Jesus was praying to the Father. Three times he caught them sleeping instead of praying. Unknowing to the disciples, this was a critical time as their Shepherd that same night will be betrayed into the hands…

Bold Prayers "This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us." (1 John 5:1) In the past, my prayer life was quite shallow. I often prayed what other pastors would call -safe prayers. Examples of that would be saying grace before meals, praying for protection from harm and sickness, praying for to have a wonderful day. It was always the same old prayer every day. I'm even used to saying, "please Lord" and "if you can". What I did not realize is that God wants us to pray…

Be Filled with the Spirit "Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil. So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. And do not get drunk with wine, for that is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit." (Ephesians 5:1 5-18) What does making the most of your time have to do with the days being evil? Well, Paul is telling us that because this world is evil, we must take every opportunity that comes our way…

Pray for Opportunities "Praying at the same time for us as well, that God will open to us a door for the word, so that we may speak forth the mystery of Christ, for which I have also been imprisoned; that I may make it clear in the way I ought to speak." (Colossians 4:3-4)We pray daily (at least we should) specially for our supplications. We pray for sick loved ones or perhaps even ourselves. We tell God our sins and ask for forgiveness. But how often do we ask for opportunities to share the gospel to those who need…

Unlocking Closed Doors "And the Lord said, "Listen to what the unjust judge says. And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?" (Luke 18:6-8) Here before us today is another account that talks about the power of persistent prayer. In this story, we read about an unjust judge who kept on refusing a poor widow's appeal for…

Prayer Room “But you, when you pray, go into your inner room, close your door and prayto your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you." (Matthew 6:6)Everyone should have a prayer room or prayer closet in their home. This is the most powerful space you will ever have. When you declare a certain spot in your home as your prayer space, the area becomes holy ground. It becomes a place of refuge, refreshment clarity and peace. In this prayer room, a deep revelation of God's word comes alive to…

Praying and Walking "The end of all things is at hand; therefore be self-controlled and sober-minded for the sake of your prayers." (1 Peter 4:7) How is your prayer life going lately? How is your walk with the Lord? We would often find that the answers to these two questions are the same. My experience is that I find it hard to have a deep and intimate prayer time just after watching hours of television instead of reflecting on God's Word. Wasteful use of time does negatively affect our prayers. More seriously, when I know I have been disobedient, and…
