The Power of Prayer Warriors

Power of Prayer Warriors
Seeking the Lord in prayer
Voicing out my needs of prayers
To the prayer warriors
Before the battle begins

Refuses to return home early
Attempt to concentrate on my deadline
Sketching on my sketch book
Then design impressions

Comforted feelings
Enter into the battlefield courageously
Reach to mutual conclusion in peace

Inspiration On: Monday, 16 November 2015

Everyone in my family informs me of the situation at home about the maid complaining to my husband. Before all these, strange to have the words prepared. Then they help me to learn to answer. Some words I choose to restrain to let the Lord makes His judgments. I ask my brother in Christ and sister in Christ for prayers besides of my cry to the Lord. God bless you all for reading my poetry to minister.

Hug

Hug

What do we provide to the hurting hearts?


Inspiration On: 1 July 2013 at 3:18am to 3:25am

Words came as I was pondering to define hug.

Solitude & Silence

Posted on

In solitude
I find rest
From the noisy world

In solitude
I withdraw from the world
Entering into my own world

In silence
I cried of my contrite heart

In silence
I prayed to my Lord for comfort

In solitude
I heard a small still Voice

In silence
I regain my strength in my Lord Jesus
I find my voice

In solitude and silence
I commune with my Lord
My heart is ready to enter the world.

This began with, “in solitude” that slowly reminded me of Psalms and Elijah as described the book of Samuel.

Night

Posted on

As the night envelops the whole city
Stars are shining brightly in the sky
The windows’ lights are dimmed
All breathe are hibernating on their bed
Babies are resting and sleeping peacefully

A peaceful night
An enjoyable time
No disturbance
Quietness
Be still
Stillness
In heart

Inspirations of pictures come
Inspirations of words come
Inspirations of stories come
Answers to my problems come
Oh, finally I hear a gentle whisper
A whisper of comfort

As I was putting my inspiration into actions and wondering of my sleepless night, the above inspiration was birthed out. Furthermore, when my quiet time was at night and my heart was troubled, “Be still” and the verses from Psalm 46:9-11 sometimes spoke to me and I feel comforted.

Anger

When angry, don’t say anything.
Bring it quickly to God.
Pray the Lord’s prayer.
Confide with God.
Converse with him.

Humble yourselves before God.
Seek God for forgiveness.
Pray for His supplication.
Pray for His comfort.
Then our anger subsides
And forgiveness sets into our hearts.
Quarrel is prevented.


The importance to confide in God is to enable us to get over our anger with the help of the Holy Spirit. Asking God for forgiveness for our sins for being selfish and then enable us to forgive those who cause us angry. Angry with people means that they have hurt our self-interest without our realization. Within a few minutes, words of comfort come and the root cause of our anger subsides. This is based on my experience on Wednesday night, which is on 17 August 2011.

This can be observed from

  1. James 4:1, “What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you?”
  2. Proverbs 17:14, “Starting a quarrel is like breaching a dam; so drop the matter before a dispute breaks out.”
  3. Proverbs 17:19, “Whoever loves a quarrelloves sin; whoever builds a high gate invites destruction.”
  4. Proverbs 18:1, “An unfriendly person pursues selfish ends and against all sound judgment starts quarrels.”
  5. Proverbs 20:3, “It is to one’s honor to avoid strife, but every fool is quick to quarrel.”
  6. Ephesians 4:30-32, “And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.”
