Prayer Opportunity – Unspoken Request


Someone has requested prayer from the believers who frequent my blog.  You folks have blessed many others with your fervent prayer, now please pray for this urgent need.

The request is for one who is experiencing spiritual warfare in their own home.  One spouse is showing meanness and an evil countenance at times.  Prayer helps after a while, going room to room and praying over each one.  We need to pray that evil forces will be bound and cast out of the area, so that oppression will cease.  Being an unspoken request, we can pray that God manage the situation “…in accordance with His will.”

Thank you in advance for your prayers!

Billy Graham on Spiritual Marurity


1CORINTHIANS 3:1 NKJV

And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ.

Live Outside of Yourself

Some people have received Christ but have never reached spiritual maturity. They have been in church all their lives, and yet they have never become mature Christians. They are still considered “spiritual children” and “babes in Christ.” They know little Scripture. They have little desire to pray, and bear few of the marks of a Christian in their daily living. To say, “I will resolve to do better, I will muster all my will power and revise my way of living,” is noble, but futile. A corpse could as well say, “I will—through sheer effort—rise out of this coffin and be a living man again.” You need a power outside yourself. You cannot get over the habits and chains that are binding you. You need outside help. You need Christ.

The Bible tells of a bridge of faith which reaches from the valley of despair to the high hills of glorious hope in Christ. It tells where we are, but beyond that—it tells where we may be in Christ. Now, of course, you will not be completely mature until you are in the presence of Christ, but you should be growing every day as a Christian.

Daily Prayer

Lord, work through me this day, that I might be maturing as a Christian and come to know You better, that I might know Your perfect will for me.


Give to me the pilgrim spirit I must have to be in the world, but not of it. Give me grace to abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul. May I always obey my heavenly calling.

This is important for those who worry too much about world affairs.  World events cannot happen unless God allows it.  I will not be caught doubting His grace to carry me through.  His kingdom is not of this world, but within us.  I will stay close to Him so that none of this superfluous stuff can hurt me.
