What is Prayer?

What is prayer? I've heard many people say that they are not really sure how to pray. They've seen people who seem to be professional “pray-ers” and it intimidates them. The body of Christ does not need to have someone who prays long and hard, it only helps to release the spirit of intimidation upon us. I once heard someone say, “God is not deaf.” And if He lives inside of us, why scream? We are to scream at the devil not God. Amen?
Prayer is actually praise. It is also giving God thanks and loving God for Who He is. Most of the time that you see the word "incense" in the Old Testament, it is referring to prayer in our modern day Christian time. Prayer is a devout request or petition to a deity. It is the act of offering devout petitions, expressions of adorations especially to God.
Prayer is spiritual communion with God and awareness of His presence as in Confession, Adoration, Thankfulness, Prayer and Intercession. The anagram that we can use to remember those words are CATPI (long 'I' sound). I actually made that up when I was teaching the 9-12 year olds at Shiloh Bible Institute in the 90’s. The kids still remember it. Notice the long “I” as not to be associated with a feline as one of the kids suggested in class one day making the entire class laugh. Oh, the good times. Even God laughs.
Proverbs 1:22-26
22 How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?
23 Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.
24 Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;
25 But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:
26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;
Prayer is communion which is "koinonia" in Greek. Communion brings us to a 'common-union' with God. Prayer is your God language, your communication which brings you into a oneness with God, a 'union' with Him. Use it daily. The bible tells us to pray always. I believe that means to think of the Lord as much as possible. I pray in increments. God hears from me all day. I always think of how the character that Matthew Brodderick played in the movie “Lady Hawk” prayed. He was a little thief but he prayed to God all day. There was a lesson about prayer in that movie to me. The character talked to God as though He was his best friend. His actions weren’t the greatest but his prayer life....was. #Grace #Mercy
The Word says, “Little foxes spoil the vine” and I believe that “little prayers spoil the wiles of the enemy.” In our Prayer Group, we can accomplish ANYTHING through prayer in Jesus Christ’s name because we are covered by His Blood. We are not “Beggars,” we are a “Praying People.” With Jehovah Jireh as our Provider, we need not beg, amen? We have outstanding members from other ministries who took out their time to join us out of love and for that, I am thankful.
God bless you all and thank you for reading.

Now let’s take a look at the word that I’ve used here “full-fledged.”full-fledged | ˈfoo͝ l ˈˌflejd |
full-fledged | ˈfoo͝ l ˈˌflejd |
adjectivecompletely developed or established; of full status: coldlike symptoms that never quite develop into full-fledged colds.
Have you ever had a problem fully letting go and giving it all to God? Sometimes don't you feel as though you're asking him for too much? Guess what? God doesn’t mind! He loves it whenever you talk to him. Talk to Him on the job, in the park, in the restaurant, or in your car. If God said that he sent the Holy Spirit inside of you then why wouldn't the Holy Spirit want to hold a conversation with you? Humans made up miming God doesn’t mime! Some of you may get upset with me when I say this but Apostles must correct the church and real ones aren’t very well celebrated, anyway. The Apostle Paul didn’t have a committee to take money out of the advertising department and announce his coming in the local newspaper or billboards so.... here goes..... I am not and never have been crazy about miming! Do I hear crickets out there? Here’s some information about miming that God had already showed me years ago but I just didn’t say anything then:Many churches believe mime is a form of worship. However, many churches have adopted the practice of mime without examining the origins of its true purpose or meaning.Miming is pantomime. Pantomime is a dramatic form of entertainment, originating in Roman, in which performers express meaning through gestures accompanied by music.
It began in the theater of Dionysus in Athens. Masked actors performed outdoors, in daylight, at festivals in honor of Dionysus, the god of theater. Mime contains acts of magic, sex, and simulated nudity. It was a vulgar and a sexually perverse form of entertainment, shunned by the Christian
Church. After the fall of the Roman Empire, the Christian Church showed great opposition to the bawdy, and indecent associations of Mime, and excommunicated all performers, and closed down all the theaters. Despite this, the basic form of Mime survived. As the Church began to adopt societies code of morality, plays began to appear with religious themes, many performed in mime. (G.C. Lewis TTBHH5)
This genre was very diverse but full of controversy. Most often they were indecent burlesques unto the god Dionysus in which female performers also took part in sexual performances. They featured dialogue, acrobatics, songs, and slapstick routines. During the persecution of the Christian
under Nero and Domitian, mimes were used to ridicule the Christian faith on stage. They mock the Christian faith and their God.
It is recorded in Acts 17:22-31 Dionysus was the god who inspired joyful worship, ecstasy and festivals. At these festivals and celebrations mimes, actors and a myriad of entertainment filled the theaters. On the north side of the hill is where Apostle Paul preached the gospel on Mars Hill. Paul was vexed at the sight of false idols and pagan worship that went on in the temple theatre. “Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars’ hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious. For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TOTHE UNKNOWN GOD Whom therefore ye ignorantlyworship, him declare I unto you.[ Moffet T.]
Here are some links for your research. mime-out-of-the-church miming.htmlNotice in Psalm 37:3 that it tells us to trust in the Lord and do good and then we will do well in the land and shall be fed. There are so many who do not trust the Lord and they just will not do good. Some act like they don’t have ‘doing good’ in their veins! Oppositional Defiance Syndrome causes a person to do the exact opposite of what they are supposed to do and that is not good for their soul. It’s just like the devil, they want to do their own thing instead of what would profit them and cause them victory and success. It is simple, in Psalm 37:3, that trusting in the Lord causes you to do good. Get it? TRUST IS GOOD. If things do not turn out well for some people and for some it seems like a lot of times, it could possiblymean that you are not fully trusting in the Lord. Let go and let God. Have what we call “stupid Faith.” Pardon my expression. There are some people who ask for prayer over and over so much so that they don't realize that they are letting people know that their faith is waxing and waning, and they do not have full 100% faith in the works of Our Lord God, no matter how “Christian” they proclaim to be. Have you ever seen people who never seem to have a good day, and when they ‘allegedly’ do it almost seems fake? It almost seems as though they are saying it just so people won't catch on that they never really have a good day. A lot of these people are also the type who love attention. They will do anything to cause all eyes to be upon them instead of upon Jesus Christ. Watch out for the Drama Kings and Queens! True dat! Learn to get Victory in Jesus Christ already! Amen? No one will want to be on your side if they never ever see you getting victory in any area of your life. That’s just common sense. It's like getting in a fast car with a man who has no sight.The second half of the verse says and thou shell dwell in the land and be fed. What land? The land of the spiritual and natural living, the land of the successful, the land of Abundance and prosperity, the land of believers. Some say “I do trust God but...” and then they finish the sentence with something such as “I have a lot of questions.” I feel this way, if you believe God you will take out your time and ask him your questions and wait on his answers! God is not a Genie though, ok? And God does not pop up out of lamps, that’s Disney, and God wants to hear from you.There are people who travel far ways and pay vacation money to get to a prophetess or a prophet. They say “Prophet so and so is coming to town are you going?” And what they don't realize is God is in them they don't need to hear a word from anybody else. Someone once told me that i was going to get a tall, fine, man and when I meet him I will know him by his eyes. I haven’t found a man with special eyes yet and that’s been about 20 years ago! If people would just sit down and study their Bible, study the word, they will find out everything that they need to know to go about their day and to be successful and happy.God does not play games, either you believe inhim or you don't. He has enough enemies and he doesn't want us on the enemy’s side as well. As human beings we always want to be like doubting Thomas. We always want to see something first before we put on total belief into it. That is not how I operate. God rewards those who diligently seek him. That does not include those who ‘half the time’ seek him. There are those who seek God only when they are sick. I once knew a man once told me that he doesn't like to bother God, he only goes to God when he is sick. That broke my heart that he doesn't trust God in any other aspect of his life. He had a $220,000 home, Bocchi court and all, and only contacted God when he or his parents were ill. And meanwhile his entire life was crumbling down around him. His parents got sick, he almost lost his house, he was supposed to get married and the woman that he was going to marry left him amongst other things.God wants us to have a total trust in him whether things are going good or whether things are going bad - God wants us to trusthim. We get on a bus and travel back and forth to our destination and we trust the driver, we also trust the mechanics of the bus. We get in our cars and turn on the air-conditioning and the radio and we trust the brakes and the mechanics of the vehicle there as well amen? The bus and the car is made by imperfect man. I tell my kids all the time when they are driving, “remember, a human made that car, be careful!” Some people trust man-made things more than God.Here's a better one for you: people buy groceries and food at restaurants and they immediately pop the food into their mouths orinto their Skillets and cook the food. That's trust don't you think? They don’t know where the hands of the handlers of that food has been. You see it online all the time where rats and human fingers are found in pickle jars, rats and mice droppings and urine are found on the top of soda cans in factories. Rats and roaches run through rice bails and restaurants. I knew a man that ran a pizza shop who had the best pizza in town but my family found a slight discrepancy. My kids friended the kids who lived above the pizza shop. One night they were playing outside of the shop with the kids who lived there and saw a surprising sight. The Pizza owner simply left his flour on the floor in the hallway and outside on the dirty porch until he was ready for a new one. I saw it myself! No bucket, no container, nothing.The 50 pound flour sacks just laid there until he was ready for more. Get this.....a few neighbors cut open the huge flour bags to steal some when the ran out, and the flour bags just stayed opened until the owner walked out to get some more. BUT!!!! His pizza was voted the best in our town! For years! See? An inside job (renters) revealed his fault. Everybody kept asking what his secret was but he’d never tell it. I know....It was probably rat hairs! When he finally sold the shop years later, I heard that he also had to sell the recipe for his pizza. I know the recipe! ...... A Broom and some Bleach!!! But! Still, we cannot trust God because he may not handle a situation correctly? I digress.....Here's an even better one for you. You work for 2 weeks for your boss just knowing somehow that he is going to pay you after all that work you’ve done. What if he changes his mind? But yet we don't trust God?You trust the babysitter and the teachers with your children but you don't have time to learn more about God? People say I don't believe in that God stuff or that Jesus stuff. When the airplane runs into turbulence what is the first thing that they say? “Oh my God!” No! Wait a minute! “WHO’S God? You mean MY God?”Nowadays people are trusting their children with people who have inordinate affections but they don't trust God. Psalm 37:5 is telling us to commit our way to the Lord and trust him and he will bring it to pass. That means that he will bring into your life those things that you need to exist comfortably. God wants us lying naked in front of him, hiding nothing. If Jesus came to your house right now while you are listening to this, (or reading this later on,) would there be anything there that would make you ashamed or embarrassed? Song 118 Verse 8 tells us it is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man. Some trust in chariots and some in horses but we shall believe in the Lord our God. What about this scripture: As for me and my house we will serve the Lord.Trust God even in financial matters. People are so worried about money. Here’s a kicker for you. Jesus never said money was the devil. He was more concerned about us serving two masters at the same time. The Bible says the love of money is the root of all evil, not money.When Jesus said you cannot serve two masters at one time He was speaking about loyalty. Where is your loyalty? Do you have loyalty in man and his inventions or is your loyalty in God the creator of all things? Have you ever seen people who are not loyal whatsoever? They are more loyal to the enemy than they are to their own loved ones.And a man's foes shall be they of his own household. (Matthew 10:36)
Years ago I was watching the Oprah show and she had a doctor from the Veterans Hospital in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania on her show. The doctor was talking about people who are addicted to Crack Cocaine, Methamphetamine, Crystal Meth and other drugs like it. This doctor went on to show us how the brain works. She had a picture of two brains on a screen for the audience to see. One brain was colored nicely and it looks healthy but you could plainly see a decrepit and discolored part in the second brain. The doctor went on to tell us that-was the part that the crack cocaine and the crystal meth affected whichwas the loyalty part of the human brain. People wonder why their boyfriends or their girlfriends don't buy Pampers or beds for their babies? You wonder why your loved one goes to the bar after they get paid and spend the entire check only to come home that Monday morning to take a shower and go back to work. There is something that has happened in their system that stops them from being loyal and to doing that which is good and right. You wonder why your loved one spends all of their money on Crown Royal at parties and they get mad at you when you ask for the bill money? They tell you “All you talk about is bills!” They say that you are a drag and a party pooper and after a while you just may begin to wonder if it's true. You have become a product of their disloyalty. And now you must work on freeing yourself from this devil that has taken over your loved one....and free them too! In Jesus name. Never stop praying for people. People who experience these situations must be delivered of the symptoms of something new that is attempting to degrade their lives and steal their joy. We go through all of this and we stillhave a problem with God.Proverbs 3:5 tells us to trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not unto your own understanding in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path many people are wise in their own eyes, therefore they feel that they don't need God all of the time. They sit Him upon their shelves until needed and the first time that fear comes upon them, (which the devil knows would bother them) then all of a sudden they need God. Fear brings on a lot of stresses. You've heard it, faith is the absence of fear and fear is the absence of Faith, you choose. As Jesus said, “You cannot serve two Masters.”Isaiah 26 verse 4 it tells us to trust in the Lord forever, for in the Lord Jehovah is Everlasting strength do we want temporal - temporary strength or do we want strength forever? I want strength for an eternity! No more timidity! Let's go to the rock of our Salvation, let's go to the Stone which the builders rejected, let's go to the Mountain and the Mountain will stand byus. As you notice it mentions Jehovah which is where we get the word Yahweh, the tetragrammaton before vowels were made, God's name was YHVH pronounced Yod-He- Vau-He, spoken in a slight whisper. So looking at it in Isaiah 26 verse 4 would actually be YHVH.And lastly Isaiah 50 verse 10 who was among you that fears the Lord, that obeys the voice of his servant, that walks in darkness and has no light, let him trust in the name of the Lord and stay upon his God. When someone mentions the term “fearing the Lord” it is not a cowering down but a respect for the creator of all things, the creator ...... of the universe. You-He-Vau- He. Your Creator.Are you walking in the light? Are you saved? CALL TO REPENTANCE.*end

Thankfulness (1450-1457 TCR)
November 25, 2009 

What is thankfulness?  To appreciate and express gratitude toward someone or something.  A consciousness of a benefit received.  Let’s explore some of God’s wonderful scripture that will give us a better understanding of thankfulness: 

1.   Deu 8:10  When thou hast eaten and art full, then thou shalt bless the LORD thy God for the good land which he hath given thee. 

a.  Thankfulness requires the return of a blessing to the one that blessed you. 
b.  It is an all around good feeling about something that has happened in your 
    life, something given you or something achieved. 

2.   Psa 100:4  Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. 

a.  We are to enter into the gates of God’s physical or spiritual dwelling, not with 
    regretfulness or bitterness but with thanksgiving, knowing that if it weren’t for 
    Him allowing us to wake up and breathe one more day, we would not be able. 
b.  We are to enter with praise.  God dwells in the praises of His people. 
c.  We are told to be thankful to God and bless His name.You either bless or curse 
1.  Who’s side are you on? 

3.   Psa 107:22  And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare his works with rejoicing. 

a.  What could possibly be the ‘ sacrifice of thanksgiving?’ What does it mean to 

4.   Col 1:12  Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: 

a.  What do you think the scripture means by “saints in light?’ and, are you one? 
b.  Who is “the Father?”  God is a ______God.  The Father is part of the t_____     called the Holy T------ or G------.  We must believe this for there IS another          Jesus. 

5.   Col 3:15  And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. 

a.  We are called into one body with one head, the Godhead.  (Three in one.)  Two 
      heads make a monster.  One Lord, one Faith, one baptism. 
6.   1Th 5:18  In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. 
a.  This means thanking God for the good, the bad and the ugly.  (Experiences.)

Pray for Rev. Leroy Jenkins' loved ones.

Prayer request: last night I dreamt about an old preacher that I used to write to named Leroy Jenkins in Ohio. I miss getting his letters and how he knew Faye Dunaway, etc. His letters were so uplifting. He allegedly went through something with his son as far as the ministry was concerned but I forget just what it was. Then either he got quiet after that or I moved around in life to much and lost communication with him. I like how he sent out Holy water to people. That was nice but of course, the devil jumped in and called him a fraud. If the man was believing that the water was touched by God, was that so wrong? Aren't we permitted by the Lord to call that which isn't as though it were? We have the power to do so. Even back in the day, the Apostle Paul and his crew cut up old rags and clothes and distributed them to the people and people got healed!  Do what the bible tells us to do and not what the World 'thinks' that we should do right? Just today, I'm looking online and I see that someone named Raven has just mentioned the same name. Pray for Rev. Jenkins family and loved ones. I just found out that he passed last year. Thank You very much and God bless.

"I'll take ½ of Jesus please"....

Believing in 1/2 of the bible is like believing in 1/2 of Jesus. The Old half is great but you are skeptical of the Newer half. 
The Word says that He is the Word made flesh.
📖 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. (John 1:14)
Believe fully or pray for God to help you in your unbelief.

I learned a hard lesson!

This may be one of the most unusual posts that you've seen me post in a while but I have something on my mind today that I need to get off of my chest. I am posting this to free my own mind and to help any of you who may be going through the same thing. Ok, so I am older now in life and I thank God for carrying me through this long. I lost my original parents when I was 3 months old to murder-suicide. I was the baby. My father decided to leave 10 children behind by shooting my mother and shooting himself, allegedly over child support. For all of you father's out there who are upset about child support, believe me when I say, you will be greatly honored and adored if you just pay it as best as you can and leave the mother to do whatever she wants to do. If she buys junk with it, it is not on your hands. The best you can do is to report it. Don't leave children to the fend for themselves in the World because you "just couldn't take it anymore."
All my life, I have been the "flighty girl," the "odd orphan" that no one liked. I've heard it all, "she's wierd," "I hate her," "why do we have to take her?" At least I can say one thing about my dad, or should I say my mom, because I did get a couple hundred dollars when he died. I think back then, in the 50's, children got $250 a month for being the child of a veteran. Some of the houses that I lived in took me for the money and hated my guts but that's ok, I had a roof over my head right? Even in my young adult life, I was always the one to drive my friends to clubs, pay their way in, buy their drinks, buy their cigarettes, etc. If the car broke down, it was my fault. If I had no gas, they were upset. I took care of one of my girlfriends so much that I got upset and said to myself sarcastically, "I may as well be her boyfriend! I buy everything that she needs!" Well, I am not gay nor bisexual, it's not my cup of tea really, I had just had enough of working in Washington County Courthouse for Commissioner Frank Mascara (who was awesomely cool,) in Washington, Pa. but spending all of my pay on someone that just sucked my pockets dry. I was definitely a little tomboy when I was a kid, quick reflexed,  and double jointed and yes, I could do a mean frontwards flip with no hands, but I was and still am DEFINITELY a girly girl deep inside. One day I may meet a nice man to be my Boaz, love me and take care of me as I cook my behind off for him and have a wonderful life with him. (Yes, I dig cooking. ;) )
I sit here with no help, no transportation, no man to talk to therefore I talk my poor daughter to death. My son works for those fracking companies. He gets in touch on a constant basis though. I had 2 beautiful Lincolns. A dark blue one that did everything but tap dance seat warmers and all. And it was like a low-rider, it lifted when I started it up. A man broad-sided me and spun that Lincoln around horribly. To this day, it's hard for me to put my clothes on because my shoulders refuse to lift my blouses and remove them. I lay in bed sore everyday, on Etodolac for pain. I hate pills. I try not to take them. I take them maybe 3 times a week or so. I had a Gold Lincoln last year but I sold it for a trip. I thought I would have another one by now but no go. Ok, here's why I wrote this....where is my help? Where are the people who will take me shopping? Buy me a Dr. Pepper once in a while and a burger? Sit at a fishing bank with me and laugh at all the ones that we let get away? Life is strange folks. By the Grace of God, I stopped smoking February 8th of 1997 but can't my friends buy or send me some chocolate via UPS or something? Still I do computer work for folks, give things away at times when God affords me to be able to do so, and comfort people via phone or email. And Facebook! As soon as I log on in the morning to put my well-known and liked, "Good Morning"(s) on there, people pop up in Messenger asking for me to pray for them. Or there are guys from other countries asking to date me. I'm like, "Yea! I'm 100 years old now and you say I am the most beautiful thing you've ever seen!? Right." And right after that, they ask if I can send them money to travel to the United States to live with me. Lol.
I think that I am writing this today because I tire of always being there for others and it's so hard to find someone to be there for you without some type of agenda. Don't get it twisted, I love helping people but I am human. I do love to be appreciated. Did you ever feel as though nothing that you do for people is appreciated? That's a horrible feeling. Lowest 'man' on the totem pole, smallest member of the tribe. So, I don't look as good as I used to years ago but I am aging quite well thank you. I am no longer slim, trim with a huge afro like before but I can do some awesome computer work, sing, cook, and make people laugh. I have many flaws, I know that I am not perfect but I certainly am not dead yet.
You bounce from person to person, company to company, field to field only to end up alone and in someone's way. Here's the question: Why SHOULDN'T I brag about Jesus? He is the only one who still appreciates me and talks to my heart. Yes, I actually HEAR Him, it's real. His voice is beautiful. I don't hear Him audibly much, maybe a few times a year but I hear Him in my heart a LOT. Wow, you are probably saying, "What a writing. Smh." One thing that I am glad about and sure of is that through my many years of living, God has been faithful. No one need not approach me with that silly Egyptian, Bird-face god stuff because I just may get a bit indignant with them. No Nor/Norse gods, no Cleopatra, no Tree-hugging.....
My Best friends name is Jesus the Christ, Yeshua HaMasciach. My best friend lived and died on a horrible cross and get this....He even ROSE AGAIN .... just for me, just so that I can know in my heart that there is a place for me in His Kingdom. Isn't that cool? As the Doobie Brothers used to sing, "Jesus is just alright with me." Yea, Jesus is alright. And He did it for you too, not just me.
Thanks for reading. And if you have any questions about Him, simply ask Him. Still your busy mind and He will answer you in ways unimaginable.

Thursday night prayer. 1/18/18

I come against heart attacks and strokes in the mighty name of Jesus the Christ. I bind any ailment that would suppress the movement and free living of our fellow brothers and sisters. Stress, you are bound in Jesus name. Death, we bind your powers over God's people right now in the mighty name of Jesus. Demonic powers your minute power is stifled right now in Jesus mighty name and those whom you wished to hurt will overcome and overtake you instead. We bind you and send you to dry places never to return and take your brothers with Jesus mighty name we command it to be so.
