Heaven is listening — pray

How do I pray? Prayers of the Bible. Grow in faith.

The Faith Hall of Fame is Hebrews 11. It’s exciting to read how :

  • Noah prepared the ark for 100 years
  • Abraham held out for a son until he was 100 years old
  • Moses started ministry at 80 years old
  • Rahab got out of prostitution and helped the spies
  • David killed Goliath with a slingshot

Through faith they subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens. Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection — Heb. 11:33-35 NIV.


Love those shiny new cleats!

Better than 007, than Die Hard, than Brave Heart (ok, yeah, I’m not that young). The inspiration of Hebrews 11 makes you want to go out and call down fire from Heaven or face off with Jezabel or Pharoah or Planned (un)Parenthood.

How about this? Let it inspire you to the uninspiring task of simply taking to your knees right there in your home — and praying with faith. It may not be a cinematographic moment with rapturous surround sound, but praying with faith today is huge heroics for God. The audience in Heaven is listening.

Pray prayers that make a difference:

1) finances
2) healing
3) salvation
4) revival

  1. Thanks for these excellent words! If I may add, I just read I Luke today about being perisistent in our prayers. God always rewards it : )

  2. I think we take prayer and faith for granted, because it doesn’t feel like we’re doing so much at the time. I’m betting in the next life we’ll be amazed to realize how much power we had while praying.

  3. I just have to say that I LOVE your mustard seed logo. Not only is it cute, and animated, and totally fit for your blog, but it’s totally a lesson on the kingdom of God, in one little animation!

  4. Love your blog – I am giving you the Best Moment Award. Deets are on my page! Congrats!

    Your “not that young”? Maybe just maybe it is that you don’t get to a movie theater anymore?! LOL – don’t most of those movies have sequels?
    (just joking with ya!)
    I love this post as I usually love your posts. ๐Ÿ™‚
    And yes… I am very vocal – in a LOVEing way – about things including Planned (un)Parenthood. I think if more people truly would “love one another” then these might be moot points.

  6. Without Faith it is impossible to please God and we know, we were created to do just that.

  7. Thanks for the reminder of the power of prayer!

  8. Praying brings splendid results!
