A Prayer Life that ABIDES

A Prayer Life that Abides
1 Corinthians 13
13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
Faith, Hope and Love are the things that abide, so work them on daily basis. How to integrate faith hope and love into your prayer life:
FAITH :
1. Give God thanksgiving and praise for everything – This builds up your faith in Him.
2. Then speak Gods Words, blessings, and promises over yourself – Faith comes by hearing the Word.
HOPE:
1. Read the scriptures Genesis to Revelation – they comfort us and give us hope.
2. Pray and ask your personal petitions and questions to God – Ask for the things you hope to know and the things you hope for him to do for you.
LOVE:
1. Worship God – Show love to God.
2. Intercede for others – Show love to others in prayer.
If you practice Faith, Hope, and Love in your prayer life, you will have a communication relationship with God that abides.

Intercession is Necessary

Intercession is standing between Gods judgment and those whom the judgement is coming to… praying to God about delaying it, asking God to minimize it, pleading with people to avoid heading into it.

Ezekiel 22:30 ” And I sought for a man among them who should build up the wall and stand in the breach before me for the land, that I should not destroy it, but I found none.”

No Man Is Greater than His Prayer Life – Leonard Ravenhill

No man is greater than his
prayer life. The pastor who
is not praying is playing; the
people who are not praying
are straying. We have many
organizers, but few
agonizers; many players and
payers, few pray-ers; many
singers, few clingers; lots of
pastors, few wrestlers; many
fears, few tears; much
fashion, little passion; many
interferers, few intercessors;
many writers, but few
fighters. Failing here, we fail
everywhere.~

Returning a Pure Language | Countdown to The Call Detroit 11-11-11: Day 31 –

Returning A Pure Language

8 Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.

9 For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the LORD, to serve him with one consent. 10 From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia my suppliants, even the daughter of my dispersed , shall bring mine offering.

Zephaniah 3

I just love this scripture… I remember the first time I heard about it when I was first learning about the Tabernacle of David and doctrine on corporate unified prayer. Then recently I learned even more about it with The Call.

The context is the last days when the Lord Jesus Christ is coming to rule. There are several layers of interpretation to both of these scriptures.

This speaks of the day when the Lord comes back in judgement upon all nations. He will gather them all to judge them.

Then He will return to the people a pure language, so that everyone can pray on one accord, with one consent, shoulder to shoulder. This shows the importance of unity in prayer to God. Calling upon the name of the LORD is prayer. Serving Him is worship. Jesus Christ wants unity of all people in prayer and in worship.

This is also the reversal of what God did at the Tower of Babel. Notice He said that He would return to the people a pure language. In Genesis 11 God confused all of the languages of the people so that they could be split up. They wanted to build a tower to reach heaven, or access the supernatural, without God. God confused them so they would not have unity and become one in purpose. Then they split up and became separate nations because they could no longer understand each other.

God is going to “return” that pure language to the people, after He judges all the nations.

One way we can preview this prophesy and have unity in prayer is by praying in the Spirit. No matter what country you are from, or what language you speak, speaking in tongues sounds similar! In Acts they spoke in tongues, and people from every nation heard them in their own language. The same thing happened at Azuza Street in the early 1900’s. God is returning a pure language to His people!

From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia, His suppliants, even the dispersed ones shall bring His offering. Suppliants mean worshippers. God is bringing Africans to be His worshippers. People beyond Ethiopia, and those dispersed abroad, the whole African “diaspora” (dispersed). They will bring an offering to the true God.

We encourage those among the African diaspora to fulfill this prophecy even now. Begin to lead your community in public worship. Bring the true God, (Yahweh and His son Yeshua) an offering. Lead the nations in worship and in unified prayer with one consent, with a pure language.

Worshippers should be undefiled and pure in their language. Don’t be afraid to sing the scriptures and interpret the scriptures with your songs. Reach to heaven and find His pure language for your songs and your prayers.

Make your way to Detroit on 11-11-11 for The Call. Pray with us. Join people all over Detroit that are fasting and praying in preparation for God to do something BIG in our city, nation, and world… NOW. Yes, NOW.
