(07/24/2000) having more than enough
|Hello prayer warriors,
1. Prayer note: having more than enough
[2 Corinthians 8:9]
For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that,
though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor,
that ye through his poverty might be rich.
The Greek word for "rich" here is "plousios" which
means: wealthy, abounding in material resources. Some
of us prefer to take the spiritual sense of the word
"rich". Why can't we take God's word as it is?
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than
all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is
at work within us, (NIV)
I just heard a tape by Dr. John Lim. He said that we
will reap the fruits of what we believe and submit to.
If we submit to the natural truth and what we see and
experience in our lives, we will reap the fruits of
natural events and what we see. If we submit to a
higher truth, which is what God's Word says, we will
reap the fruits of the Word of God.
To have more than enough, we need to submit ourselves
first to the Word of God and stand on the Word of God.
It starts with the renewing of our mind and believing
that God does not want us to suffer from poverty. He
wants to prosper us so that we can be a blessing to
others. It starts by believing His truth and
submitting ourselves to the ultimate truth and not
yielding to the what we see or experience now. How do
we believe His Word? By confessing it over our lives
and over our situation until our spirit man absorbs
this reality and the natural truth aligns itself to
the spiritual truth.
2. New prayer requests:
i. pray for deliverance for my husband -- woodchuck
Dear Friends, Please pray for my husband, he has been
addicted to drugs, alcohol, and pornography for ten
years. He is also bisexual and has bipolar disorder.
He also cuts himself. I am concerned about the
influence that this is causing on our 7 year old
daughter, Jamie. My husband and I are seperating, and
I am taking Jamie with me. Please pray for the Lord to
deliver him from this torment he is constantly in.
ii. satanistic attack -- butterfly9952
Please pray for our entire family. All of my brothers
and sisters families as well as mine are having
marriage troubles, kid troubles and financial
troubles. We really are being attacked by Satan right
now and really need the prayers of God's people for
strength to denounce satan.
iii. special prayer for life & understanding -- abrown
I really don't know where to begin. I really don't
have any family here in chicago. It's not that I
moved, they have. I found myself living with friends,
who really don't live their lives the way I would. I
am prided on working hard, paying my bills, and taking
good care of my two year old child. but sometimes you
have to go with the flow. So a situation happen where
I was at the wrong place at the wrong time, and was
arrested for felony. Mind you I have never been in
trouble so it came as a big surprise to find myself
behind bars, yes one of the individuals was with me,
but my focus was my son and getting out of there. I
prayed, every minute, I was released after twelve
hours with a felony on my record. I went to court and
out of fear of being lock up pleaded guity to a crime
I did not commit. Now I have to serve 24 months
probation and now my career plans are a mess. I want
to become a special education teacher, who is going to
let a felon teach. I will never be able to get another
job because I have a record. I can't find an
apartment. all I have is my beautiful son, and my
faith that somehow someway things are going to get
better. So I ask for prayer on the strength I need to
get through these situations, and prayer to find an
apartment so that I can get away from negatitivity.
3. Prayer update:
i. Perfect health for my mom -- waihun
Thank you so much for praying for my mom. She went for
her lymph node operation last week and we just
received the report that the nodes are negative.
Praise God! Thank you again for standing in the gap.
Continue to lift her up spiritually. She is still
praying to the idols and not submitting to God
completely. I believe that this spiritual bondage will
be broken soon with our prayers. Thanks again.
