“Un rezo del Año Nuevo para Yourself” or “A New Year’s Prayer for Yourself” 2

Dios te moldeará a Su imagen cada vez más en el próximo año.
Para el crecimiento espiritual y el avivamiento en su vida personalmente.
Dios ordenará tus pasos y te dirigirá. Demasiado a menudo vamos en piloto automático. Nunca conocerás Su voluntad para tu vida si no la sabes por tu día. Buscadlo todos los días y Él os dirigirá.
Usted ajustará sus habilidades de escucha con Dios. Tome tiempo diariamente para escuchar esa voz pequeña y tranquila.
Serás obediente al llamado de Dios en tu vida. A medida que El te conduce, no importa lo asustadizo que pueda ser, toma el salto de fe.
Dios le dará un espíritu de autocontrol. Una vida completamente rendida permanecerá lejos de las cosas que serán una piedra de tropiezo. Diariamente buscan agradar a Dios con sus opciones y deseos.
Usted encontrará su lugar en el Reino de Dios. ¿Cuándo es la última vez que se registró con Dios para asegurarse de que todavía están en Su voluntad en lo que están gastando su tiempo haciendo. Es posible que Dios te haya llamado para enseñar en la escuela dominical en un momento dado, pero desea que te enfoques en la evangelización o tal vez en el ministerio juvenil. La clave es preguntarle cuál es su voluntad para tu vida.

God will mold you in His image more and more in the coming year.
for spiritual growth and revival in your life personally.
God will order your steps and direct you. Too often we go on autopilot.  You will never know His will for your life if you don’t know it for your day.  Seek him daily and He will direct you.
you will fine-tune your listening skills with God.  Take time daily to listen for that still, small voice.
you will be obedient to God’s calling in your life. As He leads you, no matter how scary it may be, take the leap of faith.
God will give you a spirit of self-control. A completely surrendered life will stay far away from things that will be a stumbling block.  Daily seek to please God with your choices and desires.
you will find your place in God’s Kingdom.  When is the last time you checked in with God to make sure you are still in His will in what you are spending your time doing.  God may have called you to teach Sunday school at one point, but desires you to focus on outreach or perhaps youth ministry.  The key is to ask Him what is His will for your life.

Let your heart therefore be perfect with the Lord… 1

22 And Solomon stood before the altar of the Lord in the presence of all the congregation of Israel, and spread forth his hands toward heaven:
23 And he said, Lord God of Israel, there is no God like thee, in heaven above, or on earth beneath, who keepest covenant and mercy with thy servants that walk before thee with all their heart:
24 Who hast kept with thy servant David my father that thou promisedst him: thou spakest also with thy mouth, and hast fulfilled it with thine hand, as it is this day.

25 Therefore now, Lord God of Israel, keep with thy servant David my father that thou promisedst him, saying, There shall not fail thee a man in my sight to sit on the throne of Israel; so that thy children take heed to their way, that they walk before me as thou hast walked before me.
26 And now, O God of Israel, let thy word, I pray thee, be verified, which thou spakest unto thy servant David my father.
27 But will God indeed dwell on the earth? behold, the heaven and heaven of heavens cannot contain thee; how much less this house that I have builded?

28 Yet have thou respect unto the prayer of thy servant, and to his supplication, O Lord my God, to hearken unto the cry and to the prayer, which thy servant prayeth before thee to day:
29 That thine eyes may be open toward this house night and day, even toward the place of which thou hast said, My name shall be there: that thou mayest hearken unto the prayer which thy servant shall make toward this place.
30 And hearken thou to the supplication of thy servant, and of thy people Israel, when they shall pray toward this place: and hear thou in heaven thy dwelling place: and when thou hearest, forgive.

31 If any man trespass against his neighbour, and an oath be laid upon him to cause him to swear, and the oath come before thine altar in this house:
32 Then hear thou in heaven, and do, and judge thy servants, condemning the wicked, to bring his way upon his head; and justifying the righteous, to give him according to his righteousness.
33 When thy people Israel be smitten down before the enemy, because they have sinned against thee, and shall turn again to thee, and confess thy name, and pray, and make supplication unto thee in this house:

34 Then hear thou in heaven, and forgive the sin of thy people Israel, and bring them again unto the land which thou gavest unto their fathers.
35 When heaven is shut up, and there is no rain, because they have sinned against thee; if they pray toward this place, and confess thy name, and turn from their sin, when thou afflictest them:
36 Then hear thou in heaven, and forgive the sin of thy servants, and of thy people Israel, that thou teach them the good way wherein they should walk, and give rain upon thy land, which thou hast given to thy people for an inheritance.

37 If there be in the land famine, if there be pestilence, blasting, mildew, locust, or if there be caterpiller; if their enemy besiege them in the land of their cities; whatsoever plague, whatsoever sickness there be;
38 What prayer and supplication soever be made by any man, or by all thy people Israel, which shall know every man the plague of his own heart, and spread forth his hands toward this house:
39 Then hear thou in heaven thy dwelling place, and forgive, and do, and give to every man according to his ways, whose heart thou knowest; (for thou, even thou only, knowest the hearts of all the children of men;)

40 That they may fear thee all the days that they live in the land which thou gavest unto our fathers.
41 Moreover concerning a stranger, that is not of thy people Israel, but cometh out of a far country for thy name’s sake;
42 (For they shall hear of thy great name, and of thy strong hand, and of thy stretched out arm;) when he shall come and pray toward this house;

43 Hear thou in heaven thy dwelling place, and do according to all that the stranger calleth to thee for: that all people of the earth may know thy name, to fear thee, as do thy people Israel; and that they may know that this house, which I have builded, is called by thy name.
44 If thy people go out to battle against their enemy, whithersoever thou shalt send them, and shall pray unto the Lord toward the city which thou hast chosen, and toward the house that I have built for thy name:
45 Then hear thou in heaven their prayer and their supplication, and maintain their cause.

46 If they sin against thee, (for there is no man that sinneth not,) and thou be angry with them, and deliver them to the enemy, so that they carry them away captives unto the land of the enemy, far or near;
47 Yet if they shall bethink themselves in the land whither they were carried captives, and repent, and make supplication unto thee in the land of them that carried them captives, saying, We have sinned, and have done perversely, we have committed wickedness;
48 And so return unto thee with all their heart, and with all their soul, in the land of their enemies, which led them away captive, and pray unto thee toward their land, which thou gavest unto their fathers, the city which thou hast chosen, and the house which I have built for thy name:

49 Then hear thou their prayer and their supplication in heaven thy dwelling place, and maintain their cause,
50 And forgive thy people that have sinned against thee, and all their transgressions wherein they have transgressed against thee, and give them compassion before them who carried them captive, that they may have compassion on them:

51 For they be thy people, and thine inheritance, which thou broughtest forth out of Egypt, from the midst of the furnace of iron:
52 That thine eyes may be open unto the supplication of thy servant, and unto the supplication of thy people Israel, to hearken unto them in all that they call for unto thee.
53 For thou didst separate them from among all the people of the earth, to be thine inheritance, as thou spakest by the hand of Moses thy servant, when thou broughtest our fathers out of Egypt, O Lord God.

54 And it was so, that when Solomon had made an end of praying all this prayer and supplication unto the Lord, he arose from before the altar of the Lord, from kneeling on his knees with his hands spread up to heaven.
55 And he stood, and blessed all the congregation of Israel with a loud voice, saying,
56 Blessed be the Lord, that hath given rest unto his people Israel, according to all that he promised: there hath not failed one word of all his good promise, which he promised by the hand of Moses his servant.

57 The Lord our God be with us, as he was with our fathers: let him not leave us, nor forsake us:
58 That he may incline our hearts unto him, to walk in all his ways, and to keep his commandments, and his statutes, and his judgments, which he commanded our fathers.
59 And let these my words, wherewith I have made supplication before the Lord, be nigh unto the Lord our God day and night, that he maintain the cause of his servant, and the cause of his people Israel at all times, as the matter shall require:

60 That all the people of the earth may know that the Lord is God, and that there is none else.
61 Let your heart therefore be perfect with the Lord our God, to walk in his statutes, and to keep his commandments, as at this day.
(From: 1 Kings 8:22-61 King James Version, KJV)

Mary, Did You Know? by Joni Owens 1

As Christmas Day approaches, my thoughts turn to Mary. I realize the timing is not right . . . Jesus was not born on December 25. Mary and Joseph did not travel through cold snowy weather. But whatever the actual date, we know the travel and delivery took place. Let’s think about that.

We put Mary and Joseph on pedestals because they were the chosen ones, lifting them above other mere mortals. However, just because God chose Mary to bear His Son doesn’t mean He absolved her of all that went with that responsibility.

Mary was pregnant out of wedlock. She endured shame, disgrace, and likely threats of being put to death for her sin. Undoubtedly friends and family scorned her, turned their backs on her, talked about her, and verbally abused her.

We have no reason to think Mary’s pregnancy was free from morning sickness, backaches, weird food choices, roller-coaster emotions, swollen feet, tremendous weight gain, and fatigue. Joseph missed that first trimester, but he still had to deal with all that came with the remaining six months.

Like any first-time expectant mom, she had to be overcome with fear. Am I eating the right foods? What should I do differently? What will it be like? Will it hurt? Who will help me? What if I can’t do this? What if something goes wrong? What if something is wrong with the baby? What doctor will help me?

Joseph had his own concerns. How can I protect Mary? I’ve never done this. What will I have to do to help her? Can I provide for a family? Is this baby really and truly from God?
Mary was chosen because she was highly favored. The angel told her she was blessed among women. He didn’t say her life would be easy. I am blessed, but I still have to work, cook, clean, shop, and do life. I too have God’s favor – He is alive in me – but I get sick, have colds, endure the fears of cancer, get bruises when I bump into furniture, stub my toe, and occasionally fall down.

Do I believe Mary was a strong woman? I believe she was as strong as any young woman pregnant for the first time. I believe she went through everything I went through in my pregnancy, maybe more (my pregnancies were pretty easy and mostly nausea free). I believe God was with her as He was with me. I believe that even though she knew she carried God’s Son, she still wondered what He would look like, if He would be “normal,” and what others would think of Him.

By God’s grace, Mary brought into the world the most wonderful gift, a Savior who would save us from our sins. He came to save His own mother and earthly father, His earthly siblings and extended family, His childhood playmates, His school mates, His friends . . . as well as those who mocked Him, who constantly reminded Him of the indecent nature of His arrival, who refused to play with Him, who continued to shun His parents, and all who rejected Him. He came to save me.

The song asks, “Mary, did you know?” The answer is a simple no. She didn’t know. She was a scared, young, new mom with a responsibility thrust upon her to raise God’s Son. While that thought was never far from her mind, I’m sure the everyday stuff that goes with raising a boy took priority over the fact that He was God’s Son. She had no idea what that meant, what He would do, how He would act, or what would be different about Him.

She was just a mom . . . in need of a Savior. Thank God, He came!

“The Battle and Warfare Over the Mind” 1

Prayer can help us overcome the battle and warfare over the mind.

Pray that we make the right choices. Satan convinced Eve it’s harmless to look at the fruit on the tree of knowledge of good and evil, but just don’t touch it. She recorded in her brain the images of the fruit before she ever ate it. The brain records everything it sees iconically and episodically. The Devil is changing Eve’s choices by changing her appetites.

Pray that we have the right appetites. The recorded images produced an appetite in eve. The images were recorded while she felt safe letting down her moral filtering system. The appetite eventually over rode her obedience to Gods Word causing her to altar her choices. She even felt justified.

Pray that we view and dwell on the right images. Eve misquotes the Word in Genesis 3:3 saying she can’t touch it. This denotes it’s alright to look and record the harmless image but don’t touch the fruit. WOW! He is really saying it’s not harmless to allow the mind to keep dwelling, staring or meditating on biblically harmful and toxic things. Satan uses images and thoughts like spyware and malware to a computer for your brain. So these thoughts and images lay dormant. They pop up later to harm the computer (the mind) and its hard drive. So it is with the mind and thoughts. The Devil is a suggester of thoughts. He can recall images like he did Eve to twist God’s Word in you to disobey it because of image appetites. He repopulates like algorithms your thoughts to cause Biblical disobedience.

Pray that we have the right thoughts in our minds. Your mind is not the devil’s playground. You do have a choice to your thoughts (I Corinthians 10:3-6).

The Annual 30 Days of Prayer and Fasting – Los 30 Días Anuales de Oración y Ayuno 1

The Annual 30 Days of Prayer and Fasting

For several years we have embarked on 30 Days of prayer and fasting to begin the new year.  We invite you to join with us again starting January 1, 2017, to pray together in one accord.  The theme for 2017 is “Greater”.

In this Prayer Connect, we have links to download a printable copy of the new guide. There is also a link if you would like to order the rack card from the Pentecostal Publishing house for yourself or your church.

We want to request that all involved with WNOP would set aside several days of fasting and special prayer interceding for a strong sense of the need for prayer to prevail throughout our fellowship. Focused prayer and fasting will unify the body of Christ and the end result will be earth-shaking revival and great ingathering of souls for the kingdom of God.

Have a blessed week.

Los 30 Días Anuales de Oración y Ayuno

Durante varios años nos hemos embarcado en 30 Días de oración y ayuno para comenzar el nuevo año. Los invitamos a unirse a nosotros nuevamente a partir del 1 de enero de 2017, para orar juntos en un solo acuerdo. El tema para 2017 es “Mayor”.

En este enlace de Oración, tenemos enlaces para descargar una copia imprimible de la nueva guía. También hay un enlace si desea pedir la tarjeta de la Pentecostal Publishing para usted o su iglesia.

Queremos pedir que todos los involucrados con el WNOP dejen de lado varios días de ayuno y oración especial intercediendo por un fuerte sentido de la necesidad de que la oración prevalezca a lo largo de nuestra confraternidad. La oración enfocada y el ayuno unificarán el cuerpo de Cristo y el resultado final será revivir la sacudida de la tierra y gran cosecha de almas para el reino de Dios.

Que tengas una semana bendita.
