“Find A Prayer Partner; Pray In Agreement” by “The Daily Encouraging Word”

From The Encouraging Word Ministries

From The Daily Encouraging Word

“When two of you get together…heaven goes into action.” Mt 18:19 TM The Bible says, “When two of you get together on anything at all on earth and make a prayer of it, my Father in heaven goes into action.” Becky Smith was eighty-four years old and her sister Christine was eighty-two. The years had taken sight from the first and bent the body of the second, so they couldn’t attend church. Yet their church needed them. They lived on the Isle of Lewis off the coast of Scotland, and a spiritual darkness had settled on their village of Barvas. The congregation was losing people, and the youth were mocking the faith, speaking of conversion as a plague. In October 1949 the Presbytery of the Free Church of Scotland called upon their members to pray. But what could two elderly, housebound sisters do? Quite a lot, they determined. They turned their cottage into an all-night house of prayer. From 10:00 p.m. to 4:00 a.m. two nights each week, they asked God to have mercy on their city. After several months, Becky told Christine that God had spoken these words to her: “I will pour water on him who is thirsty, and floods on the dry ground” (Isa 44:3 NKJV). She urged her pastor to conduct a revival and invite the well-known evangelist Duncan Campbell to speak. When Campbell refused to come, she insisted: “God says he’s coming and he’ll be here in a fortnight.” And it happened! For five weeks Campbell preached every night to overflowing crowds at 7:00 p.m., 10:00 p.m., midnight, and 3:00 a.m. Sinners were converted, pubs closed for lack of patrons, and the Isle of Lewis tasted the presence of God—all because two women prayed in agreement.

“Pray That God Will Open Their Heart” by “The Daily Encouraging Word”

From The Encouraging Word Ministries

From The Daily Encouraging Word

“As she listened to us, the Lord opened her heart.” Ac 16:14 NLT Some of us think that successful people are difficult to win to Christ because they don’t have the same needs as others. But they do. Everyone has an emptiness within them that only God can fill, and He wants to use you to fill it. Consider the story of Lydia. “One of them was Lydia from Thyatira, a merchant of expensive purple cloth…As she listened to us, the Lord opened her heart, and she accepted what Paul was saying. She was baptized along with other members of her household, and she asked us to be her guests. ‘If you agree that I am a true believer in the Lord,’ she said, ‘come and stay at my home.’ And she urged us until we agreed” (vv. 14-15 NLT). Not only did Lydia respond to the gospel, she opened her home so that others could come and hear it too. In many cases it’s easier to reach successful people with the gospel. Why? Because they know that to be successful you must be open to new ideas and concepts. And they understand that in order to enjoy continued success, you must stay open to change. Don’t let the fact that someone is not your social peer keep you from telling them about Jesus. Note the words, “As she listened to us, the Lord opened her heart.” It’s your job to tell them, and it’s God’s job to open their heart! So sow the seed of His Word into their life when you have an opportunity, and believe that the “Lord of the harvest” will do the rest.

A Fractured Faith

A rare theological discussion broke out in the office yesterday. Delighted as I initially was it soon degenerated into the usual nonsense as the youngest member of our team innocently enquired ‘Did they have bicycles in the Bible?’ Amidst howls of derision from my co-workers I wracked my memory banks for all of a miilsecond before sagely replying ‘No. But they did have donkeys….and the occasional camel.’

Not to be discouraged she persevered with her line of questioning. ‘Well what about wheelchairs then? There were lots of disabled people in the Bible. How did they get about?’ I rolled my eyes and patiently replied ‘No. 1st Century Israeli roads were not really conducive to wheelchairs even if they had existed back then. Mats. People were carried about on mats….at least until Jesus healed them.’

The conversation meandered on then to how many humps Biblicals camels had and I surveyed the…

It Sucks Being Stuck

I felt like this when I was in high school.

Her Reason

Some of y’all know that my sophomore year of college was probably the worst of my life. I felt unwanted, unloved, and unnecessary.

This year, so far, I feel the complete opposite. The Lord has granted me peace that passes all understanding and has opened my eyes to His faithfulness.

But there’s one thing that has changed in these past two years and that’s my friend group.

My sophomore year I didn’t surround myself with friends that were good for me and what I needed. Now, I’m not saying they’re bad people- in fact I would say the opposite. They are funny and kind, but at the time that’s not what I needed; but I felt if I stopped having them as friends then I would have no friends. I decided I’d rather be in a toxic friendship than be alone.

I felt stuck.

Has that ever happened to you?
