A Sense of Urgency! Prayer Part I...

One thing I look forward to when I get to heaven is the ability to be able to kneel before the Lord. Right now my knees are fixed in one position and it is impossible for my knees to be otherwise, not only that, but numerous bones in my legs and feet would break if attempted, I don't say that as way of getting sympathy, I'm just stating it for the state of fact, After my last post, I was in hopes that I could post something of a little lighter topic for your reading, and there will come times where that is the case, but the truth my is I started this blog, as a written express of my journey in Christ, and hoped it would inspire others too. Tonight I want to tell you about one of the greatest joys in my life! Drum roll.... PRAYER.... CAN I MAKE A HUMBLE AND RATHER GUT WRENCHING CONFESSION TO YOU? I HAVE A LOVE/HATE RELATIONSHIP WITH THE ACTIVITY OF PRAYER. I am sure those words are borderline blasphemy at the very least. Sure people call me prayer warrior or partner frequently, and as almost nothing gives me greater joy than relational fellowship with God and interceding on behalf of others.  Thank you to those of you who lift me and my family in prayer.  I was encouraged that when I posted of my scary episode on June 2nd, many of you said you would pray for me, and I know many of you did.  I will be visiting the doctor in the next few weeks, but that is not what I want to tell you.  I Love to pray for people, and it is not because I'm spiritual it's because I'm desperate.  I'm desperate because I know apart from God intervening we/I have no hope to win....  Sometimes though the last thing I want to do is pray, because even after the amazing wonders I've seen, prayer while it isn't hard, but it does take effort and commitment.  Whether I remember it or not, THE BATTLE IS NOT MINE IT IS THE LORD'S!  THE MORE I DEPEND ON CHRIST, THE MORE SECURE I AM.  
TONIGHT I HAVE SUCH A SENSE OF URGENCY TO PRAY FOR MANY TONIGHT WHO NEED HOPE HEALING AND COMFORT.  SOME ARE PEOPLE WHO READ THIS BLOG, AND TONIGHT I REMIND MYSELF AND EACH OF YOU THAT THE BATTLE YOU FACE CAN BE BROUGHT TO OUR LOVING AND CARING GOD!   PRAYING WITH A HEAVY HEART!
1. http://aninstrument4hisglory.blogspot.com/ Beth Praying for you!
2. My Mom's PET' SCAN.
3. MY FRIEND SANDRA WHOSE FATHER IS SERIOUSLY ILL. 
4.  Oil Spill
5. Those with terminal cancer
6. Failing marriages
7. Solders and missionaries

These are only a few of the things on my heart tonight that I am entrusting to God in prayer!
Desiring the Higher Things,

Praying has been a blessing. I used to only pray at the dinner table and at school, but I made a commitment to pray in the morning and at night. Praying brings you closer to God in ways you can't imagine. Have you ever giggled with God? I have, during prayer.

Keep praying. The devil wants you to stop, so pray even harder!

There are times that I feel burdened with prayer. Especiallly if difficult things are going on in my own life. There are times I have joy in prayer and there are times I wake in the middle of the night to say a prayer for someone.There are times I feel like I am praying to the wall and then there are the times my heart is full of Gods presence. There are times my prayers are not answered and then there are the times they are answered above and beyond! Sometimes my prayers are only a few short words or just saying the name of Jesus. Other times they are long and worshipful with singing. Some prayers are loud and others a mere whisper.Prayer is a wonderful gift. To be able to come before the Lord at any time, any place, in any way. It brings me great comfort. Dee
