The Importance of Prayer Partners

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12

Keeping your arms raised for a period of time might not seem like a difficult task—until you try it. No matter how strong you are, you’ll eventually find it impossible to hold them up, as if a 20-pound weight were strapped to each one.

In Exodus 17:8-16, Moses was faithfully praying on a hill while his soldiers were below, fighting the Amalekites. As long as his arms were raised, the Israelites prevailed. But he couldn’t maintain this posture on his own for very long. He needed Aaron and Hur to hold up his hands.

The Lord never expected Moses to do the job by himself. Nor is He going to let any one of us be absolutely independent—that isn’t how He operates. God has built His church in such a way that the world will recognize Christians by their love toward one another (John 13:35). As we ultimately…

Power in Holy Spirit

Posted on

Conviction of sins
Confess our sins
Receive forgiveness of sins
Sins are forgiven
Forgiveness from the living God

The dwelling of the Holy Spirit
We seek the presence of the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit dwells within us
Chasing the interaction with God
The quiet moments with the Lord

Enable and empower us to
Acknowledge our sins
Deal with our sins
Grant us power to overcome temptations
Detect the wiles of the devil

Prevent us from
Sinning against the Lord
Prevent us from
Trespassing against the Lord

Victory from sins
Through the
Power of the Holy Spirit
By trusting in the Lord Jesus Christ

Great to listen to the preacher to preach about seeking the company of the Lord through our quiet moments. That reminds me of my enjoyment time with my ex-mentors and close friends. I particularly enjoy their presence through our activities. Oh. I feel so relieved of the pressure from my cell leader. Lord Jesus, thank You. Because she wants to see God to move powerfully through miracles. Inside, I cry a lot to the Lord. How can I stand this kind of request? And I tell God that I am weak and easily get affected. So I tell God I have made many mistakes and need a godly mentor. Suddenly, the preacher validates my upset. He preaches if people seeks the presence of the Holy Spirit just to get His blessings, it will chase the Holy Spirit away. Finally, I feel so happy. I can feel the Holy Spirit is happy. God bless you all for reading my poetry to minister.

Father God open…

Dancing With God

Posted on

Susan Irene Fox

Don’t criticize me for my dance

with God, who brings me confidence.

He lifts my mind up from despair

because I know He’s everywhere.

The Father’s lavish love implants

my heart with kindness in advance

of meeting strangers unaware,

because I know He’s everywhere.

Through Jesus, grace shows evidence

of living water when dispensed

without condition, freely shared

because I know He’s everywhere.

The Spirit helps my faith advance,

in trust, and bloom, mature-enhance

the way I see; become aware

because I know He’s everywhere.

In gentle arms, I take a chance

to follow Him in this deep dance,

and heart to heart I sigh in prayer

because I know He’s everywhere.

God’s Treasure

Posted on

Pure Glory

by Hazel Straub

How many times have you judged someone, by how they look on the outside? Discounted others or even yourself because of some perceived flaw? Although, chipped and cracked jars of clay, we carry wonderful treasure inside of us. God has chosen us, as carriers of his treasure. It is those cracks that allow the glow of God’s glory light to shine.

Valuable! No matter how broken, God values you. Man looks on the outside, but God looks at the heart. Treasured vessel, lit with his life and surrounded and immersed in his love!

Our bodies are made of clay, yet we have the treasure of the Good News in them. This shows that the superior power of this treasure belongs to God and doesn’t come from us. (2 Corinthians 4:7 NOG)
