(12/28/2000) vision or resolution?
|Hello prayer warriors?
1. Prayer note: vision or resolution?
A new year is coming. Some look at the new year as
just another year and some may even dread the new
year. How do we look forward to the new year?
Many do this by having new year resolutions. I suggest
that instead of resolution we ask God for vision.
What is the difference? Resolution is something that
you decide you want to do to have some change in your
life. Many of us create new year resolutions and try
to fulfill them with our own strength. Vision is
something that you ask God for. You can have your own
desires but ask God to align them to His perfect will
and pray to find out whether they are in His perfect
will. Ask Him for new desires that are in line with
Where there is no vision, the people perish
The actual Hebrew words should translate this as a
progressive vision. God IS going to make things better
for you in the coming year. You need to have the
capacity to see it as a progressive vision: nothing
that is regressive but everything that is progressive.
Always have positive expectation because our God is a
BIG God and nothing is impossible with Him.
1 I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the
tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me,
and what I shall answer when I am reproved.
2 And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the
vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run
that readeth it.
3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but
at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it
tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it
will not tarry.
What should we do now? Take time away to be alone to
pray. Stand on your own watchtower and ask God for
revelation and for vision. Once you have received your
vision, write the vision into your heart by
visualising and by placing your faith and hope that it
will come to pass by God's grace. Then, write them
down in a book and run with the vision for the whole
of the new year. This is very important, do not
underestimate what a progressive vision can do to your
life. You can only stop looking backward when you are
busy looking forward to what God has in store for you.
Happy new year prayer warriors and may God's blessings
overtake you for this new year.
2. New prayer requests:
i. Prayers needed -- bina
(Judy was hospitalised recently, to read more, please
read on site). First I must say, God is in complete
control of any & all situations, I thank Him & praise
Him for His presence! This morning Judy is still with
us, Ashtene (her granddaughter) had a good visit with
her Mammie last night. The doctor's administered a
lower dose of morphine & Judy awoke, knew everyone who
was with her, & all sang Amazing Grace. Continue
praying that God's will be done & His glory will shine
through the tears & pain!
ii. For my walk to grow stronger with the Lord --
Pray for me & my walk concerning God!! I am trying to
grow with the Lord, by prayer and fasting! Sometimes
it hard, I am a single parent, I work, & do just about
everything around the house. I have a desire to get
closer to the Lord! I want to be committed to him.
Pray for me that God will shed his light on me to do
the right things, to make the right decisions & to
follow him with all my heart!
iii. Prayer for a friend in darkness -- guest
This friend is gay or homosexual, has a good heart,
but unfortunately she is in the dark. I am requesting
prayer that God will touch her heart. That she will be
saved & delivered from this terrible force of
homosexuality. She doesn't realize what damage she is
causing to her son by living this type of lifestyle. I
cannot judge or condemn her, I can only pray for her,
I know God as a healer, a deliverer, a miracle worker.
So let us believe for her salvation & deliverance!
iv. loss of vision -- dawn
Pray for my husband Michael. He has a bad eye that
recently another infection set in to. It has been
getting worse & we have scheduled him a dr.
appointment. However, after we called the dr. he
called me back from work to let me know that something
bad had happened. His eye had a popping feeling,
flooded with tears, & then everything went black in
that eye. He did have some vision in that eye, but now
he has none. When the eye first went bad we stood on
the belief that GOD was reversing the condition in his
eye as it was doing the same thing it did when it went
bad. He has been needing a cornea transplant in that
eye. We believe GOD is our GREAT PHYSICIAN & believe
in COMPLETE healing & restoration of vision in his
left eye. Please agree with us in this prayer.
v. Pray for my walk with God -- guest
I am requesting prayer for a closer walk with the
Lord! Also to meet my mate-God Bless You!!! Lonely
