Fair Weather Praying (worse than being a “Fair-Weather Friend”)

SO….

a person you really loved for some time, is no longer being a friend when you’re going through difficulties.

Is this friend a friend, in deed?

In reverse: Some of us do not pray until we are going through major tragedies or difficulties.

Rest assured, people, we do not have a fair-weather God.

God is always waiting with love and mercy.

It is by creation, he created us for himself. Whether we stray far or near or fall shallow or deep, it is by A sacred design that each will meet and be judged by God.

For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in hisbody, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.” 2 Corinthians 5:10

Although God’s love and mercy is available to us, God can not deceive or be deceived.

“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man sows, that shall he also reap.Galatians 6:7

This post is an encouragement for all to be constant in prayer with God. We should not go to God only when we are in trouble or in dire need. Let all of us be warriors in prayer so to appreciate God’s love and mercy and to defeat the evil works. of Satan and his legions of demons who wander throughout the world, seeking to ruin our souls. TowerAndFlights (AOC)

What Does It Mean to “Be Constant in Prayer”?

First, let’s first talk about the meaning of “Be constant.” Then let’s put this call to be constant in prayer in connection with what we saw last week in the rest of verse 12. Then let’s see it illustrated in Ephesians 1.

The word “constant” here doesn’t mean that every minute you are praying. It means persist in prayer. Persevere in it. Stay at it. Be devoted to it. Don’t give up or slack off. Be habitual. It’s the opposite of random, occasional, sporadic, intermittent. In other words, Paul is calling all Christians to make prayer a regular, habitual, recurring, disciplined part of your life. Treat prayer the way you treat eating and sleeping and doing your job. Don’t be hit and miss about it. Don’t assume it will fill in the cracks of other things. Dealing with God in prayer deserves more than a dial-up on the fly.

He is, of course, available any time. And he loves to help any time. But he is dishonored when we do not make time in our day to give him focused attention. All relationships suffer without regular focused attention. Paul is calling all of us to a life or regular, planned meetings with God in prayer in which we praise him for who he is, and thank for what he has done, and ask him for help, and plead the cause of those we love, including the peoples of the world.

MY SWEET LORD

image

“My Sweet Lord”

is a song by English musician and former Beatle

George Harrison

that was released in November 1970 on his triple album All Things Must Pass. Also issued as a single, Harrison’s first as a solo artist, “My Sweet Lord” topped charts worldwide and was the biggest-selling single of 1971 in the UK. In America and Britain, the song was the first number 1 single by an ex-Beatle. Harrison originally gave the song to his fellow Apple Records artist Billy Preston to record; this version, which Harrison co-produced, appeared on Preston’s Encouraging Words album in September 1970.

Harrison wrote “My Sweet Lord” in praise of the Hindu god Krishna,[1] while at the same time intending the lyrics to serve as a call to abandon religious sectarianism through his deliberate blending of the Hebrew word hallelujah with chants of “Hare Krishna” and Vedic prayer.[2] The recording features producer Phil Spector’s Wall of Sound treatment and heralded the arrival of Harrison’s much-admired slide guitar technique, which one biographer described as being “musically as distinctive a signature as the mark of Zorro”.[3] Preston, Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton and the group Badfinger are among the other musicians appearing on the recording.

Later in the 1970s,

“My Sweet Lord”

was at the centre of a heavily publicised copyright infringement suit, due to its similarity to the Ronnie Mack song “He’s So Fine”, a 1963 hit for the New York girl group the Chiffons. In 1976, Harrison was found to have subconsciously plagiarised the earlier tune, a verdict that had repercussions throughout the music industry. He claimed to have used the out-of-copyright “Oh Happy Day”, a Christian hymn, as his inspiration for the song’s melody.

Transform Your Hate List Into A Prayer List

Transform Your Hate List Into A Prayer List

Why You Should LoveThe People You Hate

By June Silny

“If you and I are having a single thought of violence or hatred againstanyone in the world at this moment, we are contributing to the wounding of the world…” —Deepak Chopra

Okay, so you might have a hard time believing that your hatred is harming people in Australia, but there is one sad truth you about it—your hatred is probably hurting you.

Do you find yourself hating people?

Maybe your stepsister ruined your birthday dinner; your best friend kissed your lover; and the guy you eat lunch with every day sneaked behind your back to get the promotion you were next in line for.

A few months go by, and you think you’re over it until BAM! There he is, standing in line behind you as you pay for your caramel macchiato. You want to run out the door and accidentally spill your hot coffee on him. You pretend you don’t see him, and then make a beeline for the closest exit.

What’s next? You’re left with your gut-wrenching, heart-pounding self.

Someone did something sneaky, nasty or mean to you, and now you hate him for it. You’re absolutely right. What they did was wrong but hating is bad for you. It’s unhealthy and you can’t be happy until you trash it (your hatred, not the other person’s car).

People hurt you. It’s a fact of life. Whether intentional or unintentional, the pain remains. Usually that hurt turns into hate. Here are some reasons to stop hating and start loving.

1. When you hate someone else, you hate yourself

by allowing this demon to live inside you. How long do you want to hold onto that uncomfortable feeling?

2. To love again, you’ve got to forgive.

If you don’t, you live imprisoned in the past unable to enjoy the present. You destroy your chances for another romance, your next promotion, and a peaceful family dinner.

3. Loathing others makes you feel like an evil person.

Ironically, if you hang on to hatred, you begin to feel like the wrongdoer. Before you know it you’re breathing fire instead of words, your fangs are showing, your claws come out, and your face contorts into twisted shapes. Who’s evil now?

4. Hatred is a personal problem that becomes a global crisis.

Imagine if everyone held onto to his hatred, how much collective hatred there would be in the world.

5. Learning to love someone you hate is a true test of character.

Show yourself just how great you really are!

How to Love People You Hate

1. Look for the lesson.

Each hurtful event has a powerful lesson to teach you.

2. Practice forgiveness.

Release the pain of the past. Open your heart and learn to love again.

3. Love yourself more than you hate others.

Instead of focusing on how angry, hurt, and resentful you are, take a pause, then realize how you are harming yourself by letting these negative emotions live inside you.

Loving someone you hate is probably one of the hardest things to do.

But when you face the facts, there are no good reasons to keep that nasty feeling inside you, and too many good reasons to give it up. Believe in yourself; you can do it. Lying dormant inside you is an undiscovered superpower to accomplish this true test of character.

Only when you become free of this burden, can you start to live a happier life.

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” —Martin Luther King, Jr.

GOD SAVES WHORES TOO!

(THE LISA DAVIS-WHORLEY STORY)

Jesus Did It!

By: Lisa Davis-Whorley

Praise God! My name is Lisa Davis-Whorley. I am 32 years old at this writing; married for three years and have three wonderful blessings as children. I am giving God all the glory and praise right now because He has saved me and turned my life totally around.

I was always in a holiness church as a child. My mother was the pastor’s wife, which was my two step-dad’s and my natural dad. My mother was a hard worker and provided for me and my two siblings very well. This was during the 70’s and 80’s and my mother was being abused by one of my four step-fathers.

I remember her working long hours at the telephone company here in Georgia. I also remember going to that sanctified church on the hill every Sunday. I didn’t realize that 24 years ago, my life would be beginning to change.

I was a very rebellious teenager and did all that was against the church and whatever they were teaching from the Bible. I ended up pregnant at 15; I had an abortion. I was eight weeks into the pregnancy. I then began to hate my mother because I felt she was a liar and she wasn’t true to God because she was the one that paid for the abortion and took me to have it done. Thank God He has freed me from all that hate and anger!

At 17 I got pregnant again; this time I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy, Marquis, a joy to any mother’s heart and a blessing from God. He is now 14 and doing extremely well as a child of God.

I didn’t turn my life around just yet though. I continued to do what I wanted despite having such a wonderful baby in my life. I ended up marrying at 18 to this man that I only knew for about two or three months. It lasted long enough for me to get pregnant again at age 18. Tiphanie was born. The first daughter for me was an added joy and blessing in my life. I don’t understand,why I didn’t see Christ for who He was back then.

Back living with my mother now, I was going back to church every time the doors opened but just did not feel anything from the Lord. I was trying to keep things together all by myself. I had two kids still on the bottle and both were still in pampers. I was working as a waitress and things with the husband was totally over. I decided to run away.

I got my children together and I moved in with my aunt who lived in Andersonville, GA. My aunt was just as poor and I just brought added problems with two babies and no income other than welfare. And, on top of all things, I started going out with this guy and leaving the kids with the neighbors. My mother was called and I reluctantly went back home. I stayed home for about a month or two before I was off again to Atlanta, GA.

Atlanta was too fast, too soon for me and I loved every minute of it. I ended up pregnant again from some guy I had only known for about six months. I ran home real fast. I swindled my way out of that pregnancy by having an abortion at about 19 weeks. (God, thank you for forgiving me). I was so lost and stupid, the devil had me running like a fool. I didn’t realize how dumb I looked and should have felt. I am so grateful that our Lord forgives and saves.

I kind of settled down then and got myself an apartment and went to work for awhile, until I ended up pregnant for the fifth time. This resulted in Brittany, my loving angel of a daughter that God blessed me to have for a short while on this earth. I now had three blessings and still did not see God for who He is.

When I was 8 1/2 months pregnant with Brittany, I was dating this guy that I went to school with and he also lived in our neighborhood. He was a nice person until he found out that I was pregnant. He wanted me to give the baby up for adoption. I wasn’t going to do that. One night, he came to my apartment and abducted me. He and someone else grabbed me and pulled me into his car. He had a knife. He couldn’t get me in the car too quickly because my left foot was caught in the door and he kept slamming my foot in the door trying to close it. Finally, he realized my foot was in the door and moved it. He took me for a long ride and once, I tried to get away and I jumped out of the car while he was driving. I rolled down a ditch and he backed the car up and got to me before I could run. I remember that he took me back home and told me that he wasn’t going to kill me if I called the lady to put the baby up for adoption, so I did what he told me to do. God spared my life that night and he also spared my unborn child and I still refused Him; yet He still loves me. I never reported the incident to anyone, the man is now serving life without parole for killing someone else. That could have been me. Thank you Lord!

I have married three times since the first and all three were for selfish reasons and not of God. I was still fooling around and using the men as pawns. I am now in my fourth marriage that resulted from messing around on my third husband. I want to say that I know I was wrong for cheating on the ex and I know also that God put Michael in my life for a reason. I have now come to know Christ as never before. Jesus is my personal everything!

I know why God has saved me – I know why God has spared my life. I am so into living for Christ now and forever. Nothing will ever come between me and my Saviour. Michael was the man that I had always been looking for. He was the one that made me feel like a true woman. I even messed around on him with a man living across the hall from us. Michael still loved me for me and took me
back in when that man just up and left. I know that God put Michael in my life because he had to get me to see Him (Jesus). Michael was all the man I ever wanted, but Michael was an alcoholic, gambler and smoked crack cocaine. This is were my life began to change.

God knows through and through. He knew that I would fall for my now husband. And he also knew that my husband did not have patience for children nor was my husband going to budge on certain issues. God brought me to my knees on two issues that I sinned most in:

1) I had the most fertile ovaries in the world and yet I chose to abort two babies.
2) I used men and dogged them to the lowest level that I could. A man was to be used for whatever you could get out of them. (That is the way I thought)

My husband and I wanted a baby together and the Lord told me that if only I would turn from my wicked ways, He would give me another child. I had prayed for ten years for God to let me get pregnant again only to realize that it was me standing in the way the whole time. You see, after I had my fifth baby, Brittany, I had my tubes tied and blamed my mother for that also. Thank you Lord for Freedom.

Now, the Lord also knew how much I loved Michael. He knew I wanted this man. I left my third husband and Michael and I were together. This man went from bad to worse – the cursing, drinking, fights, gambling and me finding his crack pipes. But despite all, God had it all in control.

Today, I can say that Michael is off of crack cocaine; he hasn’t totally stopped drinking and gambling but the fights have stopped and we are praying together. God moves all mountains.

Thank you and God bless you for taking the time to read my testimony. I pray that it has helped encourage you in some way. If you would like to talk with me about anything I’ve shared, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I can be reached at whorley@excite.com

Praising God in Christ Jesus “K-Anthony – Billboard (Official Lyric Video)” 

Praising God in Christ Jesus “K-Anthony – Billboard (Official Lyric Video)” 

The two core themes running through K-Anthony’s life are music and his solid faith in God. They have shaped him profoundly and created the path he follows. His infectious blend of music styles and lush harmonies with strong lyrical content speaks to his deep faith and his mission to bring his message to audiences. The title track off of his first album coming out in 2017, Billboard, tells it all “I’m a Billboard, A Billboard for Christ”.
