Teach Us To Pray Pt 3 (Thirty Second Devotional)

Devotional
Have you ever stopped to think of how holy the name of God is. The Jewish people avoid writing the name of God for fear that it might be defaced. The scribes held the name of God in such high esteem, that they had a special pen that they only used to write God's name. When we pray we are entering the Holiest of all places. He is Holy, Holy, Holy. Lord God almighty. 
 
 
 
 
 
Scripture Reference
Matthew 6:9
"In this manner, therefore, pray:   Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name.
 
 

 
Action Point
Stop for a second, before the next time you pray. How are you going to approach your Father in heaven? Will you just casually say His name, or will you reverence His name?

Teach Us To Pray Pt 2 (Thirty Second Devotional)

Devotional
As Christians, we have direct access to the Father. When the temple veil was torn in two, it signified that the way to the Father had been made. There was no longer a need to have a priest make intercession because the righteous requirement of the law had been fulfilled. We can go directly to Him.


 
Scripture Reference
Matthew 6:9
"In this manner, therefore, pray:   Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name.

 

Action Point
It is because of the cross, and the blood that was shed for us that we can boldly go before the throne of God and call out Abba Father. Spend time with Him in prayer. Go boldly before the throne of God.

Teach Us To Pray Pt 1 (Thirty Second Devotional)

Devotional
Prayer is such a simple thing to do, yet many people do not understand prayer. Even the disciples asked Jesus; "Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples." Jesus then gives them a model prayer. The next week or two we will be taking a look at this prayer.  
 

Scripture Reference
Luke 11:1
Now it came to pass, as He was praying in a certain place, when He ceased, that one of His disciples said to Him, "Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples."
 
 
Action Point
Prayer is an important part of a close relationship with the Father. If we are to have that close relationship, we need to take time each day to talk to Him. The most important point to learn about prayer, is that we just need to do it.

His Voice (Thirty Second Devotional)

Devotional
I remember as a child, hearing my dad call my name. There was no mistaking who he was talking to. He didn't have to say it twice. He called me by my name. In the same way, the LORD calls us by name, and when your Father is calling your name, you will know it.
 
 

Scripture Reference
Isaiah 43:1
But now, thus says the LORD, who created you, O Jacob,
And He who formed you, O Israel:
"Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by your name;
You are Mine.
 

Action Point

The Father is calling you by name. The question is whether you are willing to respond. Whether it be a call to salvation, or a call to serve, He is speaking to you.

Restoration (Thirty Second Devotional)

Devotional
As Christians, and ministers of the gospel of Jesus Christ, our goal in ministry should always be restoration. No matter what has happened in the past, the LORD is able to restore. Even the vilest offender who truly believes, that moment from Jesus a pardon receives.
 
 
Scripture Reference
Joel 2:25
"So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten,
The crawling locust,
The consuming locust,
And the chewing locust,
My great army which I sent among you.
 
 
Action Point
Remember that in order for ministry to be effective, there needs to be restoration. This is God's plan for each of us. It all starts with a restored relationship with the Lord.

Talk To he Mountain (Thirty Second Devotional)

Devotional
As I spoke with a friend today, I was reminded of how weak the flesh is, and how powerful God is. Even though he was facing a mountain, his attitude was positive. We all face trials and tribulations in our lives. When we do, we need to look at the mountain that we are facing, and tell it how big God is.
 
 
 
Scripture Reference
2nd Corinthians 13:4
For though He was crucified in weakness, yet He lives by the power of God. For we also are weak in Him, but we shall live with Him by the power of God toward you.
 
 
Action Point
Never underestimate the power of God. Even when you are facing a mountain, remember that we have a God that is bigger.  Live your life not in your weakness, but in the power of a mighty God.

Going The Extra Mile (Thity Second Devotional)

Devotional
During the first century, a Roman solder could compel a person to carry a load for one mile, but Jesus said don't just go one mile, but two. As Christians, going that extra mile with someone will not only give you an opportunity to build a relationship, but to be a wittiness. As you live out your faith through your actions, you can begin to share the gospel message.
 
 
Scripture Reference
Matthew 5:41
"And whoever compels you to go one mile, go with him two.
 
 
Action Point
Let your life be a living testimony,and go the extra mile with someone today. Take the time to build relationships, and to share your relationship with your Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Urgent Prayer Request

Please be in prayer for Zack Sobiech on Monday as he goes in for surgery to remove a tumor. Please read below for the detailes.  (Zack is 14 years old)
 
Surgery is scheduled for 8:30 on Monday morning.  We have to be at the hospital at 6:30.  Dr. Clohisy said the surgery would last approximately 6 hours.  He will be removing all of the affected bone and surrounding soft tissue (muscles and ligaments).  We are praying for no cancer in the margins when pathology looks at the tumor.  We should have the results after a week.  The tumor needs to be 90% dead to be considered a "good response".  If it is less that 90% dead it is considered to be a "poor response" and other chemo treatments will need to be considered.  I don't like the thought of pouring more toxins into my son - so, we pray for a good response.

Thanks and God bless
Bro. Mark Silvis

Stand On The Word (Thirty Second Devotional)

Devotional
In a world that is always changing, there in one thing that will always stand. Satan has tried since the Garden of Eden to destroy it, and man has tried to remove it from public places. When great buildings crumble, and when we are all long gone, the Word of God will still remain.
 
 
Scripture Reference
Proverbs 19:21
There are many plans in a man's heart,
Nevertheless the LORD s counsel--that will stand.
 
 
 
Action Point
Stand on the Word of God. It has stood from the beginning of time, and will stand forever.  It is unchanging, and unwavering. It is tried and true. It's the Word of God.

Outside Your Comfort Zone (Thirty Second Devotional)

Devotional
When the Lord told Ananias to go, he said "Hear I am Lord." The Lord only asked that Ananias be obedient. Sometimes we may question why God asks us to do certain things. God may even ask you to go outside of your comfort zone. Like Ananias, we need to have the confidence that God is in control, and leave the results up to Him.
 
 
Scripture Reference
Acts 9:17
And Ananias went his way and entered the house; and laying his hands on him he said, "Brother Saul, the Lord Jesus, who appeared to you on the road as you came, has sent me that you may receive your sight and be filled with the Holy Spirit."


Action Point
Don't be afraid to step out of that comfort zone. If God has called you, then he will equip you. Say, hear I am Lord, then be obedient. Follow through, and don't give up just because things aren't going as you had planned. Remember that God is in control, not you.
