    What Prayer Is Not. What Prayer Is.

    "Peace in the Midst of the Storm" by Jack Dawson jackdawson.com (look for hidden images) Based on 1 John 4:4

    What Prayer is Not:

    1. Me convincing God to see things my way.
    2. Me pushing hard enough until God finally gives me what I want.
    3. The last resort.
    4. Passive Inactivity.

    Prayer is:

    1. Spending time learning God’s character.
    2. God turning up the heat so poison rises to the surface.
    3. Laying life’s strife at His feet so none of it is on His throne.
    4. Driving me out of my mind and into His.
    5. Willing surrender.
    6. Work.
    7. Warfare.
    8. The moments of the day that set life’s course.
    9. Speaking God’s Kingdom, God’s will & God’s life as God directs.
    10. Being still & knowing He is God.
    11. Mind-boggling.
    12. Transforming.
    13. Unfathomable.
    14. The Greatest Adventure.
    15. Never Wasted Time.
    16. The only place to go in this world where you can drink of something so refreshing & fulfilling.
    17. Gazing at Jesus until I reflect Him.

    Holy Is His Name

    From: Images for Holiness: http://alturl.com/kx8e8Holy.

    That description can only apply to One.

    God is Holy. There is not even a shadow of a hint of sin or fear or despair or sickness or bitterness or unforgiveness in Him.

    Not. One. Drop.

    Therefore, the more we immerse ourselves in Him, the more we call on His name and grapple with the fact He is Good, He is Love, He is the author of all life and all that makes life worth living; the more we allow the wrong conceptions about Him to melt away in His scalding love, the more His character and personality and Holiness overtake us. Immersed in His transformational presence, all fear, wrong desires, bondage, hatred and every other horrible thing that infects our minds, bodies and world—cannot stand. Like the walls of Jericho, as we show up day by day and march around the strongholds Satan has erected in our path, there comes a day those walls have to crash.

    But our job is not to determine how many days. Our job is to stand faithful in the knowledge He is Good, He is Holy, His love never fails—and He has never been, never is, and never will be anything but Holy.

    No other entity or god or thing we could worship could ever be described with that word--Holy.

    Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God Almighty. The whole earth is filled with His glory.

    Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God Almighty, Who was, and is, and is to come.

    The 30/30 Prayer Challenge


    Prayer can be an intimidating thing. It's also just difficult to wrap our heads around the fact the God of all the universe loves to spend time with us. There are so many hang-ups that can block our way.

    Here's a novel thought borrowed from Nike: Just Do It!

    1. Commit to a regular time with your Heavenly Father.

    2. Show up.

    3. Repeat Every Day.

    One method of Prayer to get started

    Here's the challenge:

    1. Commit to spending at least 30 minutes a day for the next 30 days in prayer.

    2. Report to the Facebook Page: 30/30 Prayer every day to encourage, give prayer requests, ask for encouragement, etc. Whatever helps you in the journey, that's what we're here for.

    3. Invite friends you think would want to join the 30/30 Challenge.

    Prayer Challenge begins November 7 and ends December 7.

    Together, we'll see what God will do.

    Joining 30/30 Prayer isn't mandatory, of course. Prayer is an anytime/anywhere thing. 30/30 Prayer is to help us all make Prayer part of our daily routine and see what God can do when we aim at the center of His heart together.

    Besides, Prayer is Never wasted time.




    A Prophecy of Hope

    Over the past decade of daily prayer, I’ve often wondered that God has never sounded the alarm in my heart instructing us to stockpile, build a stronghold or otherwise prepare for tribulation. This morning, He spoke of the coming shaking but it was in an entirely different tone.

    The Prayer Matrix

    Image from: http://www.catch22.net/software/matrix-screensaverFor some time now I’ve been praying about and grappling with the deeper meaning behind Jesus’ miracles. Of course there’s the obvious: Jesus heals. But I just knew there was a deeper application to His miracles since that’s the way God works. Nothing is ever wasted.
