“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.

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.

A reminder from ARCSite: Great Prayer Process for Christians and Bible Believers to know. 1

If you are someone who believes in the Christian Bible and praying, then the following information will be of great help to you and others.

There is a process we can all follow when praying to achieve real results. The process include some Christian Bible Scriptures that are relevant to the pattern presented here. During your personal prayer session, if you spend five minutes, for example, praying with each point mentioned in this presentation in mind, then you will most likely have spent about 60-70 minutes in praying in during your prayer session.

Praise. In the Christian Bible, Psalms 34 verse 1, Psalm 63 verse 3 and Psalm 150 verse 6 in the Old Testament refer to this point. You will also see related information at Hebrews 13 verse 15 in the New Testament. Praise simple refers to starting your prayer session with praise to Jesus.

Kingdom Praying. We can find a related scripture for this point at Matthew 6 verse 33 in the Bible. Basically, this means paying more attention to the priorities of the Church or Christian Ministry rather than on our own needs. By doing so, we can expect God to help us solve our human daily problems or needs because we have taken care of his Church needs first.

Forgiveness and Confession of Sins. Read Matthew 6 verses 14-15 and Psalms 139 verses 23-24 for related scriptures on this point. Pastors and Church Leaders will often tell Christians that an unforgiving mind-set or spirit will most certainly hinder us from receiving answers to our own prayers.

Petition. According to this point, some will say prayers of petition should always include willingness to accept God’s will, even if he answers the prayer or not. Read Matthew 6 verses 9-13 and James 4 verses 2-3 for related scriptures. For my experience, the will of God must always prevail over all prayer requests base on human knowledge, current situation or experience.

Intercession. This is similar to Kingdom Praying mentioned above. Matthew 9 verses 37-38 and I Timothy 2 verses 1-2 have helpful scriptural information about this point. Intercession is simply about praying for the needs of others, for example, the poor, homeless, sick, unemployed and others.

Bible Reading. For my experience, some have found this to be unusual or surprising during a prayer session. However, if we read 2 Timothy 3 verse 16 we will discover that this should not be so. If you are a regular bible reader, you will know or eventually discover, that God can and will speak to Believers through his divine word – the Christian Holy Bible.

Meditation. Many people I know like this very much. Some even prefer to do this than pray at all. Psalms 1 verses 1-2 and Psalms 77 verse 12 have more information on this. Meditation is just quiet focusing on and dwelling on the things in your life that are related to the bible and why we need to pray. From meditation, we can achieve greater insight, knowledge understanding of many issues that may be bothering us.

Thanksgiving. We know that praise is important but so is thanksgiving. This is focusing on all things that we are thankful for in our lives and that of our families, neighbors and friends. This often include things that are not pleasant because the Bible says we are to give thanks for all things at all times.

Praying the Word of God. I have always given special attention to doing this during my time to pray. Praying the word of God from the bible is very powerful praying because we are saying what God said or what was stated through his apostles, prophets and others from the Old and New Testaments. Read John 15 verse 7 for scriptural related information. By praying the word, we can repeat and claim God’s divine promises to all humans and Christians for our situations in life.

Singing. This is another unusual point during our prayer time. However, the famous scripture Psalm 100 verse 1 and Ephesians 5 verses 19 will help us understand why we do this. At our Church, we often sing at the start of our Services to invite the presence of God in our hearts and minds. Therefore, it helps to do likewise in our special private prayer session.

Listening. We often focused on praying for what we want or desire, for others needs and and so. However, very few of us really listen to hear from God after we pray. This is not a simple matter. It will require a sincere heart and mind that is focused on really hearing from God and accepting what he will say to our minds or hearts from our praying. Read 1 Kings 19 verses 11-12 for information.

Praise. As it was in the beginning, so it should be towards the end of our prayer session. Read Matthew 6 verse 13 for more information. After we have done all of the above, we again need to praise God for his presence and blessings in our lives.

In ending, some may not follow the exact process above when praying. However, when we do it will produce better results. At no time can we pray without confessing our sins and with forgiveness in our hearts. We must learn to listen to God and accept his will in from our answered prayers.

ARC Apostolic Friends and “Prayer Warrior” by Jean Tir 1

Her colleagues called her “Registered Nurse” and “Colonel Potter”; I called her “Mom” and “Prayer Warrior.”  As a nurse, she knew how to give orders, fill out charts, and administer tender, loving care.  Most importantly, she knew how to pray and to wait for God’s answer. I remember one pivotal time in my life when Mom, blending the characteristics of both nurse and prayer warrior, taught me key principles of prayer, preparation, and praise.

When I was twelve years old, I spent a few days recovering in the hospital after my tonsillectomy.  Everything seemed fine; but Mom had been praying and listening to God, Who had warned her in a dream that I would need to go to the operating room a second time.  Of course, she did not frighten me by sharing the information with me then.  Instead, Mom continued to pray and to trust God.  She stood upon the promise of God’s Word:  “Casting your care upon Him, for He cares for you” (I Peter 5:7).

Although the Prayer Warrior trusted God, the Nurse understood that certain preparations needed to be made.  Mother, knowing she could not be with me all the time and leave my younger sister alone, hired her friend who was a private nurse to stay with me overnights at the hospital.  The Bible teaches in James 2:26 that “faith without works is dead.”  Mother’s faith in God was manifested in her practical preparations.  When my stitches broke, causing a major hemorrhage, I was not alone.  God was with me, and a nurse was with me.  After the second surgery, I awoke to see my Mom’s caring face and to hear her comforting words, “Jean, you are going to be fine, dear.”

Through her actions and attitude in the midst of crisis, Mom taught me that the value of prayer and preparation is enhanced by the power of praise.  Although she gave thanks to the doctors, nurses, and other hospital staff who took care of me; she reserved the highest praise for her Lord Jesus Christ.  The testimony she shared with her colleagues about my surgeries revealed to them a loving and caring Savior who also manifestedHimself as the Master Healer.  Through the example of her mother, a twelve-year-old child learned to give praise to a God who loved her and took care of her.

Although Mom passed from this life to heaven earlier this year, her legacy continues.  The lessons that my mother taught me when I was just twelve years old still provide strength and endurance in my life as a missionary today.  I thank God for giving me a mother who taught me the priceless principles of prayer, preparation and praise.

Note:  Jean Tir has been involved in missions work for over twenty years in Slovakia, starting under the AIM program, then progressing to appointment as an Intermediate and Career Missionary.  She and her husband Steven Tir are now appointed to represent both the nations of Slovakia and Serbia.  Jean loves reaching out to people in Eastern Europe, especially as a Ladies Ministry leader and as a Bible school instructor.

Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer… 1

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office:
So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.

Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;
Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching;
Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness.
Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.
Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;

Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord;
Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;
Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality.
Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not.
Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.

Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.
Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men.
If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.
(Romans 12:1-18 King James Version, KJV)
