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

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.

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.

Philippians 4:12-14 (KJV)
I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Notwithstanding ye have well done, that ye did communicate with my affliction.

Colossians 1:10-12 (KJV)
That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness; Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light.

Colossians 2:6-8 (KJV)
As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

Motivation Right Before You

Set my heart’s motivation right before You, O Lord.

Enable me to endure this
difficult times day by day
With the strength whom You have provided
from Your beloved Son, Jesus Christ.

Please teach me and guide me daily in Your will, O Lord.

Prayers are Revised On: 15 December 2011 at 1:43am

On Tuesday, 22 November 2011 at 8:34am “Endure day by day with the strength from Christ” came to me as I’m going through stressful times in my life because I have been trying to balance my life.

As I was praying during my quiet times on Thursday, 1 December 2011 “Set my heart’s motivation right before You, O Lord” came from my heart to the Lord, recognizing my weakness especially in my emotions.

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.”

God’s Shining Glory

Refer: Revelation 21:22-26 & Exodus 20:18-21

I went to Universal Studio at Resort World Sentosa with my husband and his sister, nephew, brother and sister in law. We played almost all the rides, just left two performances. Then we waited until 9:30pm to see the fireworks. It is my first time to see it glows before my very eyes. When it was exploding, my eyes couldn’t take it so with my right arm to cover my eyes.

How can I withstand God’s glory before my very eyes if He appears before me?

Especially now, I feel that my spiritual life is weak. Followed by my headache that never goes away. It gets worse as years passed by and even after giving birth.

Prayer: No matter what happens, O Lord, please help me in my weakness. Give me strength to obey Your will. In Your most precious Son’s name I ask. Amen.

Society Values

Is freedom good for the youngsters?
Saturday, 1 January 2011

Refer: Exodus 4:5-10;5:28-30;6:6-8 (KJV)

When a teenager turns to 21 year old, they are considered adult and can make his/her own decisions. I observe that nowadays the society has changed a lot from olden days.

Olden days value the sanctity of marriage and a responsible living. This also teaches the younger generation to be more responsible in their actions and decisions. No abortion. Children are being valued as a gift. Children honour and obey their parents. The grown up children provide and take good care of their old parents.

Current society starts to allow dating couple to stay together and have intimate relationship outside married. They choose not to live with their parents. All they want is to break free from the authority figures. It is regarded independent of their parents. Not just that, they feel that they can do whatever they want. No one can restrict them. This may seem trivial to most people, but it may not be the case. Virginity is not being valued anymore. This also teaches people to be irresponsible in their marriage life and take it as a game. Divorces rate are increasing. That is why there are so many broken families. Children are hurt. More of them are abandoned. Abortion is accepted. Some mothers even murder their newly born babies. Not just that, more elderly home. Old parents are abandoned by their grown up child. The grown up child only thinks for themselves, instead of caring the old.

What is the society turning into?

In Deuteronomy 5:29 “O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever!” speaks about God’s heart. The reason of His commandments is meant for the well-being of ourselves and our future generations. Our authoritative figure who knows what is right and wrong may rebuke us when we are children, but it is meant for our own good. During young times, we feel restricted in what we do, but it is meant for our own good.

What I mean is not all conservative traditions are correct such as being superstitious. But their values about living, marriage, and commitment are good for us.

The best guidance for our lives can be found in God’s Word.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank You for letting me to grow up in a conservative family. I’m thankful for my parents to guide me with their value system. This shapes my value system and the decisions that I make. As I think back of my parents’ disciplines, now I’m thankful for it.
