|1 Thessalonians 5:17 (Part of the The Need For Christian Duties series).|
|One way to rejoice more is to pray more. There was a need to pray back in biblical times and for today. The problem then was that people didn't pray like they should just as today's time, Luke 18:1. I Luke 18 we read of a parable about a woman that kept asking for help. In the end the woman was granted her request because the judge was tired of her asking. How much more does God love us than that of the judge? Do you expect and answer immediately from God when you pray? Do you expect your request to be answered the way you want it when you pray? Do you even pray, pray without ceasing?
Why pray? Matt 26:41, one prays better when there is trouble in their life. So why do we pray? We pray because we are weak. We don't have the answers.
When to pray? Now Daniel prayed morning, noon and night. If we are not careful that will be the mandate that we will place on our prayer time. We should always be praying and reaching to Him. Every time that it is possible, we should be praying.
What to pray? Prayer is no more than opening your heart and knowing whom you're speaking to. Did you know that God already knows why and what we are praying for or about? Recognize whom God is, it should always have praise to God. We need some bread, we must be honest, bread is what we depend on God for. Our breath is our bread. Our body that works by itself, God controls, is our bread. A man can not forgive you of your sins no matter whom the man is. When we pray we should be asking what we need from within our hearts.
How to pray? The best example of this is when Jesus was in the garden praying, Matt 26. Jesus was fervent and was also honest. God is not fooled by a big speech. We should be open with God, He's not surprised. If you've got an problem with someone then you've got to be honest because He will want you to take care of the problem. So you didn't like how God answered your prayer, be honest about it. Fervent means that it's one on one. You must find alone time with God.
Will you pray? Every time the doors are open to the church we are always asking one to pray? It's always an open invitation to pray. No one is holding you back from praying. He's not fooled by you avoiding to pray.

|Stopping The Voices|
|Psalm 40:1-4 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|David endured physical afflictions and he often prayed about them. Also, he prayed for his enemies. Just as he, discouragement affects us all and it all begins in our minds.
God can hear you as long as you have repented and hold no inequity in our hearts. If God granted every prayer we asked Him instantly then He would surely be our spare tire. But God makes us wait thru patience.
Our mind is liken to a horrible pit full of never ending noise. We can not stop it no matter what we do and try. Always thinking, always listening, always wondering and doubting. The miry clay being depression that our mind will usually begin to think about if we don't put our minds at ease thru Christ. People today are screaming to be rescued from their own minds.
The clearest your mind will ever be is when you allow God to work in your mind. Prayer can bring clarity and remove the doubt in our minds. Not only will God clear your mind and ease it but He will also place you on something solid that you DO know.
How many have things are rolling around in your mind that you can't get rid of? A grudge against someone? Worried about a sickness? Stressed about a lived one?
For a child of God we are not a victim but a victor! We choose everyday which one you want to be.

|The Cross and the Crown (Part 1 of 2)|
|Galatians 6:11-14 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|The cross is an emblem of Jesus' sacrifice. The power of God is represented by the cross of salvation. Mat 16 tells us that we also have a cross to bear. The cross was not Jesus' to bear but our sins, but He bore them for all. Just because you might be sick or worried is not a cross to bear for Christ but a general ailment because we are human. The cross we must bear is of that after salvation, the flesh wants what the spirit can't have. It's a constant battle that is never ending being a child of God. How many are ashamed of their salvation hiding it from others? Is it a burden, no, it's a purpose from Christ. Each child of God has their own cross that they must bear and can only be carried by themselves. Why do we need a cross? It will keep one humbled. It was beyond the cross of Calvary that kept Jesus motivated. The cross will keep one to praying. Jesus prayed before in the garden because of the cross and what was to come. The cross has multiple purposes but the things of the flesh we should crucify daily. We should take those sins and fleshly wants to the cross and crucify them. So not only is the cross an emblem to the world of the power of God but it's also a help in the very time of need in removing fleshly wants. We should be giving ourselves as a living sacrifice. Too many people want to classify themselves as a Christian on Sunday but live like the world all the other days. A cross hung around ones neck is just a piece of jewelry and can't and won't make one a Christian. The cross is the belief that Jesus Christ hung and died for your sins.|

|Do You Have Hope?|
|2 Corinthians 5:1-2 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|If you're a Christian there is a day coming that all the burdens of life will come to an end. There will be no more death, sickness, aches or pains. The world is searching for a remedy to fix the sorrow of the earthly life. Would you know a heavenly built place if you seen it? It's builder is of God where no mans hands have ever touched it. The fact about our flesh is that it will dissolve back to the earth. To most Christians it's the struggles to the end that bothers and stresses. The end of a Christians earthy life is just the beginning of a life of eternity with the savior Jesus Christ. Many of persons have almost went to the edge of life but God spared their lives for His purpose. Others, God has called them out of this world. Do you have hope? Is your hope in this world or is it in the things to come? Do you have a house being prepared in heaven? Is there a dread when you think about death?|
