Prayer, Plain and Simple

Prayer, Plain and Simple


Fat Cows in the Wings

jill Herringshaw adds this next post in her series on prayer for “lost sheep…”

Luke 15:8-10 “Or suppose a woman has ten silver coins and loses one. Doesn’t she light a lamp, sweep the house and search carefully until she finds it? And when she finds it, she calls her friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost coin.’ In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”

We’ve been sitting with the Father, joining Him in His watch. He’s watching and waiting for His prodigals. His eyes scan the horizon just waiting for the first glimpse of His beloved’s return. We are joining Him and praying. He tells us that our prayers are the force necessary to change the hearts of His children. He’s confident that our prayers will avail – so confident that he’s fattening up some of his livestock to prepare for the pending celebrations. He is full of faith.

So, we continue to pray.

I speak to the minds and wills of prodigals and say, “Reject perverse ideas! Stay away from every evil in the Name of Jesus Christ.”

I command doors to open that would bring godly influences into their lives. I slam shut every door of evil influence in the Mighty Name of Jesus.

I take up the call to ferret out the wicked and free Your child from the grip of evil. I call down the powers of addiction in Jesus’ Mighty Name. You must go now. I bind the spirit of pride and arrogance. You must leave in Jesus’ Name.

I ask You, Father, to remove the film over the eyes of the deceived. I apply the Blood of Jesus to these eyes and cry out for mercy. I cry out for justice. I cry out for repentance and returning. May these beloved prodigals once again believe the good news – the good news that You are loving, forgiving, and just waiting to celebrate their return.

Amen

After I prayed this this morning, I looked back at the tree where the Father was waiting, and He was not there, just a few apple cores and a dove. There is a note simply saying, “Be back tomorrow.” He loves it when we wait with Him.

“Okay, Father. See you then.”

In the distance I could hear someone whistling a tune… “Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling…”

    “We’ve been sitting with the Father, joining Him in His watch.”

    Oh yes, then what color are “His” eyes? Does “He” whistle? Glow in the dark? Smell especially good (or bad)?

    This is such a bad joke. People should do their kids an enormous favor and let them grow up without one wrong religion or another polluting their heads. Let them, as adults, choose their own religion/philosophy.

    Scripture states clearly that God has eyes. Check it out. What color they happen to be remains to be seen. Perhaps they are a color we’ve never imagined before. Perhaps they’re pure light. Or maybe rainbows stream out of them. Who knows but those who have seen Him with their own eyes? Obviously in this exercise I’m using metaphor and imagination. Isn’t that rather a gift from Himself? I have faith that one day I’ll see for myself.

    A scripture I try to live by.

    Romans 12:9 Let your love be sincere; hate what is evil, but hold fast to that which is good.

Eternal Life Begins Today
A religious expert came up to Jesus and asked him a question. It was a loaded one. "How does one inherit eternal life?" He was quizing Jesus and hoping to humiliate Him in public. It didn't work. Jesus didn't need to hear Himself talk, so, in his usual fashion, he turned the question around and ha
