The Words of Jesus of Nazareth by Lee Cantelon

The Power of Prayer

 

Until now, you have asked nothing in my name. Ask, and you will receive, and your joy will be full.

 

The prophet Isaiah has written: "My house shall be called by all nations a house of prayer."

 

Pray then, to the Father who hears your most intimate prayers and rewards them openly; and whatever you ask the Father in my name, he will provide. If you live your life in me, and let my words live in you, you may ask what you wish and it will be given to you.

 

Pray in this manner:

 

“Our Father in heaven, may all the earth recognize that you are the one and holy God. May your kingdom dwell among us. May your purpose be accomplished on earth, as it is in heaven. Provide us with daily bread to sustain us, and forgive our falling short. Help us to forgive those who have wronged us. Keep us from wandering into faithlessness, and deliver us from the evil one. For to you belongs all power and glory, eternally. Let it be so."

Lord God, Abba Father, O that you would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory for Your service. That Your hand would be with me to keep me and mine from evil and from pain. Always making us aware of those You place in our path that are in need and afflicted, and convicting us when we place ourselves and our needs before those of others. Let me walk in the Spirit putting You first, others next and me third. I do believe You will provide what I need for today, I just keep asking that Your will be done in and through me each day. In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen.

No one has ever been accused for not providing ornaments, but for those who neglect their neighbor a hell awaits with an inextinguishable fire and torment in the company of the demons. Do not, therefore, adorn the church and ignore your afflicted brother, for he is the most precious temple of all.

— St John Chrysostom

Hebrews 11:1-7

Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.  For by it the men of old received divine approval.  3  By faith we understand that the world was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was made out of things which do not appear.  4  By faith Abel offered to God a more acceptable sacrifice than Cain, through which he received approval as righteous, God bearing witness by accepting his gifts; he died, but through his faith he is still speaking.  5  By faith Enoch was taken up so that he should not see death; and he was not found, because God had taken him. Now before he was taken he was attested as having pleased God.  6  And without faith it is impossible to please him. For whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.  7  By faith Noah, being warned by God concerning events as yet unseen, took heed and constructed an ark for the saving of his household; by this he condemned the world and became an heir of the righteousness which comes by faith. 
Psalm 145:2-5, 10-11

Every day I will bless thee, and praise thy name forever and ever.  3  Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised, and his greatness is unsearchable.  4  One generation shall laud thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts.  5  On the glorious splendor of thy majesty, and on thy wondrous works, I will meditate.  10  All thy works shall give thanks to thee, O LORD, and all thy saints shall bless thee!  11  They shall speak of the glory of thy kingdom, and tell of thy power, 
Mark 9:2-13

2  And after six days Jesus took with him Peter and James and John, and led them up a high mountain apart by themselves; and he was transfigured before them,  3  and his garments became glistening, intensely white, as no fuller on earth could bleach them.

4  And there appeared to them Eli’jah with Moses; and they were talking to Jesus.  5  And Peter said to Jesus, "Master, it is well that we are here; let us make three booths, one for you and one for Moses and one for Eli’jah."  6  For he did not know what to say, for they were exceedingly afraid.  7  And a cloud overshadowed them, and a voice came out of the cloud, "This is my beloved Son; listen to him."  8  And suddenly looking around they no longer saw any one with them but Jesus only.  9  And as they were coming down the mountain, he charged them to tell no one what they had seen, until the Son of man should have risen from the dead.  10  So they kept the matter to themselves, questioning what the rising from the dead meant.  11  And they asked him, "Why do the scribes say that first Eli’jah must come?"  12  And he said to them, "Eli’jah does come first to restore all things; and how is it written of the Son of man, that he should suffer many things and be treated with contempt?  13  But I tell you that Eli’jah has come, and they did to him whatever they pleased, as it is written of him."

Audio books I am listening to and other books or readings I am reading:

When Heaven Invades Earth Unabridged By Bill Johnson Narrated by Tim Lundeen – When Heaven Invades Earth is a powerful statement and testimony on the Kingdom of God. Theologically sound, well supported, and extremely well argued, this message provides a carefully constructed biblical foundation for the average Christian to live and walk in the miraculous power of God. Not only is the supernatural possible, it is our commission. The Great Commission that Christ gave the Church challenges us and makes us responsible to rise up to this supreme supernatural calling. Johnson explains how we are called to dominion in the earth through the divine rule of God.
