Praying with Persistence

vil-son-35490.jpg
Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. Do not quench the Spirit; do not despise prophetic utterances. But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good; abstain from every form of evil. - 1 Thessalonians 5:16-22

 

This is a continuation of Praying with Shameless Audacity

 

Another helpful resource I HIGHLY recommend is "Drawing the Circle: The 40 Day Prayer Challenge" by Mark Patterson

My lovely friend, Abie recommended it to me last year. This was her second time through and she has the most amazing stories to share about how this devotional and fervent prayer really created transformational change not only in her life but the lives of others she was praying for as well.

When you're struggling and seeking answers, here's my advice: 

  1. Get in the Word. It's all written out there! Take Holy Spirit with you on the journey of your reading and seeking. He is our Paraclete (See image below).
  2. Pray - Our conversations with God in prayer will reveal His will, if we learn to LISTEN. 
  3. Listen - He will send specific people at specific times to speak His truth which will align with His word and His character and affirm what He's been teaching you through scripture reading and prayer. 
  4. Watch - Be expectant to receive dreams and visions! We too often overlook this powerful way God communicates with us because we doubt and question if it's just a manipulation of our subconscious mind merely reflecting our fleshly desire. In reality, this is one of His most profound ways of SHOWING our spirit what our eyes can't yet see. Don't dismiss or discredit your dreams and visions if they bring you a deep sense of peace and joy and confidence. That's GOD SHOWING you what's up!
