How to Pray Scripture

How to Pray Scripture

  On the National Day of Prayer in the first part of May, as I drove I heard someone on the radio praying for the nation from II Chronicles 7:14 which says, “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land.” As I drove, I quoted the scripture with the speaker and was…

Today’s Bitterness

Today’s Bitterness

The Spirit of Marah (Bitterness) On the third day when the Israelites journeyed back to Israel after their Exodus from Egypt, they found themselves at Marah, thirsty and out of water. There was a well there, but it was bitter. The Biblical account tells us in Exodus 15:23 (NASV): “When they came to Marah, they could not drink the waters of Marah, for they were bitter; therefore it was named Marah.” So we learn that Marah means bitter in Hebrew….

Praying for our Government

Praying for our Government

I Timothy 2: 1-2 says, “First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men, for kings and all who are in authority, in order that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity.” Paul urges us to pray for those in authority as a first priority. How many times have we glossed over that part? But what should we pray? According to Psalm 110:11,…

God’s Solution to Terrorism

God’s Solution to Terrorism

II Chronicles 7:14 “ . . . and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray, and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” God promises His people deliverance if they will do four things. (1) We must humble ourselves. That means to bring ourselves into subjection to Him. To stop trying to do things our own way. (2)…

Jesus, Our Need-Meeter

Jesus, Our Need-Meeter

Psalm 147:3 He heals the brokenhearted, and binds up their wounds. In the Greek, this scripture not only refers to the healing of individuals. It also includes healing of nations and involves restored favor. Do you know any person or nation that is brokenhearted (is a wreck; is crushed or ruptured)? Some come to mind immediately. They need more than a bandage and a couple of aspirin. They need a major overhaul. No amount of human effort is going to…

Need Help?

Need Help?

Hebrews 13:6 . . . so that we confidently say, “The Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid. What shall men do to me?” When we lose sight of the fact that we are the Lord’s and He is ours, we tend to become afraid. We think we have to provide for our need or our protection. We have the mistaken idea we will suffer lack, or that someone may do us harm. We tell ourselves we have…

God’s Prescription for Healing

God’s Prescription for Healing

With Ebola banging on our door it might be a wise thing to search God’s word, the Bible, for His prescription for our healing. He has a prescription for all our needs whether it be physical, mental, or emotional healing. Here is a page from my new book Looking Deeper. Exodus 15:26 And He said, “If you will give earnest heed to the voice of the Lord your God, and do what is right in His sight, and give ear…

Healing for Our Nation

Healing for Our Nation

Jeremiah 33:6 Behold, I will bring to it health and healing, I will heal them; I will reveal to them an abundance of peace and truth. Jeremiah received this word from the Lord while he was being held in the court of the guard. He told the king they would be hauled off to Babylon. The king didn’t want to hear it so he threw Jeremiah in jail. God promises to bring healing and restoration, health and a sound mind….
