A good read. Enjoy.

Today, Jimmy has been barking more than usual. Much more. In fact he’s not stopping at all. As I work in my backyard – raking leaves, watering the plants and collecting lemons – Jimmy barks non-stop.

That is unusual given that he is quite used to seeing me around working the way I’m doing today. On most days, as I go about my little tasks, I can see the big dog looking affectionately towards me from over the fence that divides my house and his house. I mean, his master’s house.

It’s as if Jimmy knows me well. Many a times I have thought that they tie him up here at their backyard and forget him, therefore he feels happy to see me. Less bored. But today he’s been behaving like a stranger. Or is it that today I seem to be a…

PRAYERWALKING: Taking Your Prayers On The Road

This is one of the best ideas that I have heard in a long time. I am thinking of getting a group in our community to start doing this. Why don’t you do the same?

Prayer Walking

Beckie LIndsey

friends walkingThere are many facets to prayer. During the month of November we will spotlight a few of them.

Today’s topic: Prayerwalking

All over the world, God is helping Christians to pray as they walk through the streets of their communities. The idea of prayerwalking through your community is to allow your prayers to extend beyond your own concerns, focusing on the needs of others, while opening yourself to see them with God’s eyes and heart.

Prayerwalking is simply taking our prayers to the very places we desire to see God’s presence manifested.

Another way to put is: Praying on sight with God’s insight.

Prayerwalks are taken by individuals, groups and even whole churches. They can be as short as one block or as long as many miles. The idea is to use the five senses—sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch—to enhance the intercessor’s (those praying) understanding of prayer needs.

Halloween

I got to this post a day late but it is well worth the read anyway. It is very true and should be taken into careful consideration. In my opinion.

THE RIVER WALK

Halloween

Read: Lamentations 4:1-5:22, Hebrews 2:1-18, Psalm 103:1-22, Proverbs 26:23

You gave them authority over all things.” Now when it says “all things,” it means nothing is left out.
But we have not yet seen all things put under their authority. (Hebrews 2:8)

Relate: In case you were living under a rock in America or are reading this from somewhere else in the world I have an important announcement: Today is Halloween. That means it is devil’s day… right? Its the day everybody does scary things and glorifies vampires and demons and all the satanists are performing their rituals under the full moon… right? When you look into Halloween’s past, it is clearly the most evil, occultic, wicked day… right? No God fearing Christian would have anything to do with Halloween… right?

WRONG!

The devil doesn’t get a day. All things are under our authority. This isn’t a day we should cower in fear. This…

Incomparable

This is one way to praise the Lord. Just to realize something of who he is and what it means to server him is praise to him.

THE RIVER WALK

incomparable

Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, or with the breadth of his hand marked off the heavens? Who has held the dust of the earth in a basket, or weighed the mountains on the scales and the hills in a balance?
Surely the nations are like a drop in a bucket; they are regarded as dust on the scales; he weighs the islands as though they were fine dust.
With whom, then, will you compare God? (Isaiah 40:12,15,18)

Read: Isaiah 39:1 – 41:16, Ephesians 1:1-23, Psalm 66:1-20, Proverbs 23:23-28

Relate: Where are you right now? Are you in your living room or in your study? Are you reading this in your bedroom. Maybe you are in a public place. Are you at a library? Are you in a classroom? I certainly hope nobody is reading this while you are driving, but are you on…

WHY PRAY IF GOD KNOWS EVERYTHING?

Awesome inspiration for prayer. Read through and find the many reasons that God’s word tells us we should pray.

Beckie LIndsey

church-red doorsPrayer is perhaps the greatest Christian privilege and perhaps the greatest Christian failure.

I think most Christians would agree that we all need to learn more about prayer and pray more often. So why then don’t we?

Let’s face it—we have some prayer hang-ups.

One major reason we don’t pray better than we do, is that we have questions which lead to uncertainty. Uncertainty affects our faith which in turn affects our prayer life.

Last week we established that prayer requires faith and how to grow in our faith.

(See last post: http://beckielindsey16.com/2015/10/13/prayers-that-go-beyond-the-ceiling/)

One of the questions that can affect our faith is:

Why should we pray in the first place if God already knows everything, including what we’ll ask Him for?

A problem with this line of questioning is it diminishes the purpose of prayer to a simple means to get God to do what we want.

We…
