We all need help how to connect with God in prayer.

History Is God’s Story Book

History is God’s story, so no human, world or cosmic event is a surprise to God. Timing and events are in His hands. Ultimately God will be in full control, but for a short time evil ( the Devil) has a little freedom. Ultimately God will be fully expressed through every human being, some happily in heaven, some in unhappiness in hell.

God is outside of time so He knows the beginning and the end. He is uniquely qualified to write a book like the Bible that predicts the future.

Overview of Bible Prophecy

  1. prophecy about the Lord’s first coming (happened 2000 years ago)
  2. prophecy about the Lord’s second coming (future) 
  3. some Bible prophecy is about BOTH (Isaiah 9:6, and Daniel)
  4. it seems there are more verses in the Bible about His second return, than the first.
  5. prophecy about Israel

In the Lord’s first coming, He came as a man like us and as a lamb to be crucified on a cross for our sins, then rose from the dead and ascended to heaven.

In the Lord’s second coming He will come as a warrior to conquer an evil earth that does not represent God’s character. He will rule the earth from Jerusalem.

Pray Pray Let God Worry

Martin Luther (16th century monk) said “Pray, and let God worry“. Which means don’t worry, give the concern to God. He can handle it. Paul in Philippians 4:6 said: “Don’t worry; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” Martin was writing to his wife during a time of trouble and confusion. That was the Martin Luther who did much to bring people back to the Bible and back to Jesus Christ.

A new Christian song encouraging us to pray and let God worry about our life. The phrase was inspired by Martin Luther who in the 1600’s wrote to his wife in a letter “…Pray, let God worry…”

Anxiety never seems to go away.  Anxiety and worry seem to be part of life.

Here is a video in which I shared on this subject.

So we need to pray and turn towards the Lord by praying, reading the Bible, singing or listening to inspiring Bible music.

Sometimes we need to back off and focus on God. In the world there are problems but have faith in Jesus.

Don’t lose sight of Jesus.

In the gospels, Peter needed to keep his eyes on Jesus not the raging stormy waters.
Peter sank when he looked at the water.  He needed to get his vision and perspective back on Jesus.

In Matthew 6:33  Jesus said: “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. 34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.”

Pray, and let God worry – Martin Luther

Isaiah 40:31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Hebrew 13: 5-6  be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

Psalm 103:1-5, A Psalm of David

Psalm 103:1-5, A Psalm of David

Isaiah 30:15 For thus saith the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel;
In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: and ye would not.

So Isaiah is saying you need to slow down and trust God, but some of us have a hard time doing this. Just trust in Jesus.

Morning Time Prayer, an Animated Overview

Consider the morning time to be the best time to pray and read the Bible. We all need a little touch with God our creator to get the day going.

Morning time is the best time to connect with God and the Bible. Try to pray with Jesus every morning. The best time to get the day doing right is our morning prayers with Jesus and the Bible. As an example, Jesus really liked the morning time for prayer. Jesus would go away and find a place to pray early in the morning. His time praying to the God the Father was a real source of spiritual strength.

My Favorite Christian Devotionals and Study Resources

Besides the Bible, devotional and study books can be a great source of inspiration and encouragement. Some books just keep us on the right path theologically. Its great to receive encouragement from others.

Fear Fear Not Mary — an Encouraging Christmas song

This is maybe a Christmas song, but it applies to all who sometimes in fear need to do something that is a little hard to do or maybe beyond what we normally would do.

This Christmas song is encouragement for those of us called to a special ministry like Joseph and Mary who brought forth Jesus. We are all called to express Jesus in a special way.

Don’t fear, just follow God. God will do wonders.

 Title:  Fear Fear Not Mary

Fear…Fear not Mary
You have favor with God
God will do wonders
Just follow God and fear not

Fear…Fear not Mary
You will conceive Jesus
The Savior, the Redeemer, the Messiah
Just follow God and fear not

Fear…Fear not Mary
He shall be great, Wonderful
Call His name Jesus
Just follow God and fear not

Fear…Fear not Mary
God will do wonderful things
Call His name Jesus
Just follow God and fear not

Just follow, follow, follow and fear not
Just follow, follow, follow and fear not
Just follow, follow, follow and fear not

Abide in Me and Pray Pray Pray – Passion Easter Week Song

This is a new song from John 15:7 where during Passion Easter Week Jesus is teaching on Prayer.

John 15:7 says: If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you want, and it will be done for you. So for prayer there are two conditions: abiding in the Lord and Abiding in His word (the Bible).

the Lyrics are: If you abide in Me
If you let My word Abide in you
What you pray shall be done
Abide abide and pray pray pray
God answers according to His will

If you abide in Me
If you let My word Abide in you
What you pray shall be done
Abide abide and pray pray pray
God answers according to His will

Abide in Me and Pray Pray Pray - New Passion Week Song

Abide in Me and Pray Pray Pray – New Passion Week Song

Whatever you ask in My name

Prayer is one of the most power things we can do. Prayer connects us with God, who is the creator of the universe.
Consider this verse in John 14 encouraging us to pray in the name of Jesus.

Whatever you ask in My name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it – John 14:13-14

Prayer Song: Just a little Faith in Prayer – Speak To The Mountain – 4k video – Kauai Hawaii

Prayer song:   Just a little Faith in Prayer – Speak To The Mountain.  

Jesus said: If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you…(Matthew 17:20)

The video scenery is from Kauai Hawaii.

So prayer sometime requires just a little faith to speak to our situation.

The lyrics are:

Speak to the mountain – Go
Just a little faith
Just a little faith in prayer
That’s all you need

Speak to the mountain – Be removed
Just a little faith
Just a little faith in prayer
That’s all you need

Jesus teaches us to pray in faith
Just a little faith
Just a little faith in prayer
That’s all you need

Speak to the mountain

Don’t give up
Don’t give in

Jesus teaches us to pray in faith
Just a little faith
Just a little faith in prayer
That’s all you need
(repeat)

Speak to the mountain – Go
Just a little faith
Just a little faith in prayer
That’s all you need

Speak to the mountain – Be removed
Just a little faith
Just a little faith in prayer
That’s all you need
