I had spent a cpl of months in pain because of my right arm.. I couldn’t sleep at night.. All day long, I would shift my shoulder/arm/neck trying to get comfortable. Basically, I had a constant pain, 24/7.. all day, every day for at least 2-3 months. I did what we all do when we need healing – Google search and youtube videos of course! Searching all the ways to heal myself of this thing. According to a nurse friend of mine, I had a pinched nerve in my neck..? Idk.. and I don’t care now. ha. I received much advice for healing: visit a Chiropractor, stretching, posture, take pain meds, etc., but finally 1 day.. I got the needed medicine –
Here are some additional thoughts pertaining to prayer..
“For Your kingdom come, Your will be done…” It’s not: “For my kingdom come, my will be done…” Our will is easily recognized – It’s self-centered and usually focused on selfish desires/selfish gain..
Here’s some personal experiences with prayer –
Below is a submission by Mark pertaining to Faith prayers. He makes some good points on how we can damage our own faith when prayers aren’t answered. Here are a few scriptures that spoke to me while reading his submission –
James 4:3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.
Isaiah 1:15-16 And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood. Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;
1 John 5:14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:
Matthew 17:20-21 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.
Lastly, I recommend these 3 posts –
Thank you Mark for sharing your experiences –
I’m an uncle! Boy, this is the first time I have had a new born this close to my life.. and wow, what a miracle. What a miracle. Thank you Lord. My nephew’s name is Trey Cameron Doll and he was born at 2:01 a.m. today. 7lbs 1oz. Below is a link to some pictures.
I’m categorizing this under answered prayers. My sister and her husband have been trying to get pregnant for years. Thank you Lord for blessing us with him.
Trey Cameron Doll, I pray the Lord bless you and keep you. That He make his face shine on you and be gracious to you. That the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace all of the days of your life. That the Lord scatters the plans of the enemy and surrounds you in His protection. Be blessed Trey Cameron! In Jesus name, amen.
Pictures here. Hallelujah.
Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
I can’t use that verse enough. Praise God. Blessed be the Lord God who provides. Here is a testimony of God providing needs through the Body of Christ. Even though I was able to take care of these things on my own, God still worked through others. Praise God, thank you Jesus. Adonai-yireh! God is good. I pray this blesses and encourages you, in Jesus name. Amen –
New Laptop from God
The first testimony of God providing is a new laptop. My laptop has hung in there for a while. It has a broken hinge and a lose wire some where on the inside that caused the screen to go black once in a while. One day, as I was meeting with a brother in-Christ, he accidentally hit my laptop screen and it slammed down. He thought he broke it, lol. I told him about the hinge and we laughed. He said, “I have a feeling the Lord will provide a new laptop in your future.”
I received a prayer request this evening from a follower of Jesus and a reader of this blog. I’d like to share with the Body of Christ so that we may all stand in the gap. I covet your prayers for this individual. Lord, turn your ear towards us. Lord, hear our prayers. In Jesus I pray, Amen. Here is the request:
Yes, indeed it has been a while since my last post. I was waiting on the Lord for my next witnessing to His blessedness. All in His perfect timing.
Praise God for answered prayers. Here is a testimony from the Lord (and a great lesson) – Faith, Obedience, and Blessings. I pray this blesses you –
