(02/11/2000) Calling on the name of God
|hello prayer partners
1. Prayer Note: calling on the name of God
Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in
When we pray, we call on the name of God, sometimes to
bless and sometimes even to curse a person. We need to
remember and revere His name and know that God is not
our servant. He is the Lord God and we His servants.
We use His name only to bless people and not to curse.
When we call upon His name, let us revere His name and
not use His name for our own personal purposes.
I've just read a very good book on the Names of God
and I find that it is wonderful to call on His
different names in different situation.
To find out more about many of God's Names as He has
revealed to people in the bible:
2. Note of Thanks by ephlee
Ephlee has requested that I put this in the prayer
update because he wants to personally thank everyone
who has prayed for him. His uncle received Christ:
Thank you all for praying in agreement with me
especially bc and all the prayer partners in this
site. It is through your committed prayers that God
moved mightily. My uncle accepted Christ within the
first few hours that I met up with him. Hallelujah!
Here's the effect of your faithful prayers that I
wanna share with all of you brothers and sisters:
the Lord impressed upon me to go back to my hometown
and preached the Gospel to my uncle. I made up mind to
go as I also wanted to see my uncle saved. As the date
approaches, doubts and apprehension began to crept
into me. In my perception, my uncle wasn't the type
that will receive the Good News with open arms. I went
back anyway with no expectation (my mistake to
distrust in Him). I prayed in the spirit the whole
journey back. I thanked God that I will be able to
behold His miraculous hands upon my uncle's salvation.
As my uncle was working the night shift in a petrol
kiosk, I went straight there upon my arrival. I helped
him to pump gas there for a while. I was talking to
God in my heart. I said to Him:
"This is Your battle and I want to be Your vessel and
I want to see us win this round. Lord please, let this
soul be saved. It is my strong desire to see my uncle
saved. Please God, in Jesus, name".
I didn't even know what to do after that as I thought
I can't even find an opening to start talking about
Jesus. But we serve a mighty God and He is in the
midst of us. And He provided the opening. To cut a
long story short, my uncle got saved [Rom 10:9] on
that night itself and the Lord even provided a Bible
for him and I explained the first few chapters of Luke
to him before I headed back. Thank you faithful prayer
partners for your prayers, may the Lord bless you and
lead you, Amen.
Thank You for the salvation of my uncle. Thank You for
using me as a vessel. Thank You for raising up all the
prayer partners in this site. Bless them and fulfill
the desires of their hearts. I pray that I will be
worthy to be Your vessel everyday. Father, I pray that
You will minister to my uncle and will send Your
vessels to teach him Your Words. Guide him Lord, show
him Your love and will, protect him with Your hedge of
protection, let Your wall of fire surround him, let
the Blood of Jesus flow from the crown of his head to
the sole of his feet. Bless him Lord.
Thank You, in Jesus' name, AMEN!
