Praise and Prayer

Nancy Leigh DeMoss (now Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth) (Reviveourhearts.com) in 2012 hosted a radio series on prayer and surprisingly, today, August 25, 2016, she is currently hosting a series on The Lord’s Prayer. Now I am a firm advocate of prayer, (prayer does indeed change things!), but I am also an advocate of aspraise and prayerking God to teach us how to pray and of asking the Holy Spirit as to what we ought to pray. There is so much to pray for these days. Even if we pray selfish prayers, there is still so much to pray about in just our lives.

As I journey in this life, I find myself asking God more to teach me how to pray in His promises; how to seek and find those promises in the Bible that relate to my current situation, to my family’s situation, to our nation’s situations, and to show me in great clarity, how I am to live a life that is holy and pleasing to Him.

1 Peter 4:7

1 Peter 4 7Satan, we, who are called by God as His beloved, yes – We are gonna pray your kingdom down.

The great, and good, thing about OWN’s Greenleaf series is Shirley Caesar’s singing of “Satan We’re Gonna Tear Your Kingdom Down” So distinct is the song that I have the video bookmarked on my cell. Shirley Caesar is truly anointed with a voice designed to glorify our Lord.

Please note that I am not endorsing the viewing of Greenleaf, but the theme song of the series literally gives me chills every time I hear it. I’m moved by its rhythm:  Marching,  An army standing strong, Singing a bold declaration of not what needs to be done, but what we are doing:  Satan, we are gonna tear/pray your kingdom down!  I sing along. I, too, march as I am reminded that The God of peace will soon crush Satan under our feet. Continue reading →
