A Prayer From Syria

This prayer was written by a young man living in Syria; He is married and has one child.
 
Please use this prayer as a basis to help shape your own prayers for the people of Syria, many of whom live in a constant fear of persecution.
 
Thank you Lord,
For all that you have done and are still doing.
 
I trust your will is always good and finally you will turn evil to good.
I know that you are not silent, but patient…
But how long will it take Lord?
 
I am looking forward to a new beginning amongst my people.
My own desire is that evil will stop
and that we will see your glory shine again in the darkness.
 
I’m longing for healing, for restoration. I cry out to you, Lord.
I’m longing for a new generation to take their place in your kingdom,
To be the light and salt of this nation.
 
Help me to see my role in this transformation.
Protect me and be with me.
Carry me, day by day.
 
Amen

Have You Ever?

One day, a while back, a man, his heart heavy with grief, was walking in the woods. As he thought about his life this day, he knew many things were not right. He thought about those who had lied about him back when he had a job.

His thoughts turned to those who had stolen his things and cheated him.

He remembered family that had passed on. His mind turned to the illness he had that no one could cure. His very soul was filled with anger, resentment and frustration.

Standing there this day, searching for answers he could not find, knowing all else had failed him, he knelt at the base of an old oak tree to seek the one he knew would always be there. And with tears in his eyes, he prayed:

“Lord- You have done wonderful things for me in this life. You have told me to do many things for you, and I happily obeyed. Today, you have told me to forgive. I am sad, Lord, because I cannot. I don’t know how. It is not fair Lord. I didn’t deserve these wrongs that were done against me and I shouldn’t have to forgive. As perfect as your way is Lord, this one thing I cannot do, for I don’t know how to forgive. My anger is so deep Lord, I fear I may not hear you, but I pray that you teach me to do this one thing I cannot do – Teach me To Forgive.”

As he knelt there in the quiet shade of that old oak tree, he felt something fall onto his shoulder. He opened his eyes. Out of the corner of one eye, he saw something red on his shirt.

He could not turn to see what it was because where the oak tree had been was a large square piece of wood in the ground. He raised his head and saw two feet held to the wood with a large spike through them.

He raised his head more, and tears came to his eyes as he saw Jesus hanging on a cross. He saw spikes in His hands, a gash in His side, a torn and battered body, deep thorns sunk into His head. Finally he saw the suffering and pain on His precious face. As their eyes met, the man’s tears turned to sobbing, and Jesus began to speak.

“Have you ever told a lie?” He asked? The man answered – “Yes, Lord.”

“Have you ever been given too much change and kept it?” The man answered – “Yes. Lord.” And the man sobbed more and more.

“Have you ever taken something from work that wasn’t yours?” Jesus asked? And the man answered – “Yes, Lord.”

“Have you ever sworn, using my Father’s name in vain?” The man, crying now, answered – “yes, Lord.”

As Jesus asked many more times, “Have you ever…?” The man’s crying became uncontrollable, for he could only answer – “Yes, Lord.”

Then Jesus turned His head from one side to the other, and the man felt something fall on his other shoulder. He looked and saw that it was the blood of Jesus. When he looked back up, his eyes met those of Jesus, and there was a look of love the man had never seen or known before.

Jesus said, “I didn’t deserve this either, but I forgive you.”

It may be hard to see how you’re going to get through something, but when you look back in life, you realize how true this statement really is.

Luke 7: 13

Luke 7 v 13

“When the Lord saw her, His heart went out to her, and He said : ‘Don’t cry'”.

The Lord noticed the weeping woman and he saw the widow of Nain in despair at the loss of her son.

Jesus had a very tender heart full of compassion.

Sorrow always touched His heart.

Jesus dries up the fountain of sorrow, comforts the sorrowful and speaks life into a dead soul/ situation.

The widow of Nain had ‘lost’ her son; he had died and was being carried out of her house.

But when Jesus looked at the ‘dead man’ he said, “Young man, I say unto you, arise”.

And as Jesus spoke he that was dead sat up and began to speak!

Restoration of life.

Jesus speaks and things happen through His power.

Blessings come, in the midst of affliction, to those who heed His Word.

Never despair for the Lord may surprise you at the last moment and do the impossible.

There was great rejoicing as the dead soul arose.

And there is great rejoicing for the Lord has great compassion for you in the midst of your situation.

Jesus has power to heal, and power to raise the dead. No situation is hopeless, Jesus can do the impossible in any situation in which you find yourself for His Word has great power.
PRAYER:
Heavenly Father, Almighty God, I rejoice that the outcome of my afflictions is one of great blessing.

My heart is uplifted to you, for you are a compassionate God.

You speak life into dead situations and restoration takes place.

Glory to the Almighty God who makes all things possible.

Thank you Lord.

Amen

May you be greatly blessed today; May our Lord be with you and smooth your pathway for you.

God Bless

Exodus 14: 14

Exodus 14: 14

“The Lord shall  fight for you, and you shall hold your peace”

There are troubles to be found everywhere. Many struggle today with troubles and cannot see any solution.

Do not murmur or complain if troubles overwhelm you.

Nothing overwhelms our Father God.

No matter what the enemy plans to do to you, God has already taken care of it and will show you what to do.

Never be afraid.  Even though your situation may appear  hopeless to you, do not doubt God.

Stand still. God will fight our battles for us.

God is on your side; He will step in and show us a solution to all our problems.

God opens the way and does the impossible. Whenever you find yourself  in a seemingly impossible situation, remember what God did for Israel at the Red Sea. And the people of Israel never forgot this victory.

In the midst of the storm, God says “Be still”.

We do not fight against flesh and blood but principalities and powers.

God will calm the troubled waters and we will see the salvation of the Lord.

We will bear witness to God working to make things better for us.

Something good will come out of our troubles.

Victory is in the Lord.
Prayer: 
Heavenly Father, Almighty God, I bind every spirit of the enemy.  I pull down every stronghold in Jesus name.

In my troubles, Lord, I look unto you.

My faith looks up to thee, O lamb of Calvary, Saviour divine.

My battles are over as I place all my trust in you.

I calm my spirit and will be silent so that you can take my hand and lead me through the troubled waters.

Thank you Lord for the deliverance you have given to me.  Amen

With many peaceful and calming blessings. Victory is yours.

God Bless

The Power of Intercessory Prayer

The Power of Intercessory Prayer
 
What is intercession? First of all, intercession is sacrificial prayer. It focuses less on you and more on others. It asks God’s power to be unleashed in the world.
 
Intercessory prayer involves spiritual warfare. Our battle is not against flesh and blood, and it is not fought with carnal weapons. We win these battles on our knees!
 
2 Corinthians 10: 3 – 5
 
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds.
 
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.
 
Through intercessory prayer, you can subdue the forces of hell and render Satan powerless, because “the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling sown of strongholds!”
 
Through Intercession, you can change the course of history. Through prayer and intercession, you can touch your community and impact your world.
 
God has placed all that He is and has at your disposal in prayer.
 
No principality or power can stand against the person who knows how to pray.
 
The Power of Intercessory Prayer is an e-book in .pdf format and costs only £1.00.
