|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.

|Having Time for a Compassionate Heart|
|Luke 10:30-35 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|As we look around we see troubles and trials and our country going down a sinful path. We live in a cruel world that has no compassion or love of God in them. The world is too busy doing the Devils busywork. We need to slow down and take time out to pray. Most will say about another that when something bad happens to another, "they got what they deserved". Religion is a dangerous thing. One could join every church they find, they could be baptized in every form of water around but still be lost. We as the saved need to simply respond and work for God. How many people come to church with a void and leave empty handed? You'll never understand the spiritual things until your born again. This world is all after someone to guide them, they are searching for a leader.|

|God Is Faithful|
|1 Corinthians 10:13 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|The life of Job still takes place to this day. People lose their finances, loved ones, personal belongings, etc. Those things that we lose are all worldly things that we should never put above God in our lives. Everyone is tested, everyone is put through trials. God is God in the good and He's God in the bad. What anchors you to this world? A husband would lay his life down to protect his wife but he can not allow his love for his wife be more that his love for God. Grief is real and you must pray with it but time will take the grief away. Whatever your concern is rest assured God has already been there and has defeated it, claim it. Regardless of the trial in your life, God is faithful. Being faithful means everything He has promised He will keep. God has never failed anyone. There's not a single person that wants to go through heartache but the heartache is what grows us. When you're going through a test God has put you into a controlled environment. When it gets to the point that you feel like you can't bare anymore, He gives you strength to pass the test. If He doesn't give you strength then He will provide a way out. Romans 8:28|

|Just Give It To Him|
|(Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Got a problem? Stop holding on to it, let God have it. Give it all to Him and don't pick it back up. Trust that He WILL take care of it.|

|Are You Listening?|
|John 7:32 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|God simply has to speak and things happen. God speaks to us still to this very day. The same voice that spoke the world into form. The same voice that calmed the seas. One simple thing about God's voice is that we all hear it unless it's hindered by our own sin. We get to a place where we are hardened to the truth. We hear God's word taught so often that we think nothing of it. The problem is not the speaker, but the one hearing. To those of us that are saved, He has already spoken to us and has cleared the doubt away. God has called but we lack obedience to do. God spoke to Peter and asked him several time if he loved Him. It wasn't that Peter couldn't hear Him. It was that God was asking him a deeper question, wanting a deeper answer. Peter wasn't listening with his heart, only his mind. Still to this day, God is speaking to us but we do not listen with our hearts. When God speaks it will either get rejected or accepted. Either way it will NOT go out void. We can blame our deafness on anything and everything but the truth is, it's our sins that causes it and our pridefulness to keep it. Do you feel that you've got a hard time in life? The work in others is not validation of Gods Word, God's Word is validation of itself. He speaks to everyone which is the validation.|
