Making a Bold Entrance

posted by Mark and Jill

“So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.” ~Hebrews 4:16

We have an invitation to come into the presence of God through prayer and receive whatever it is we need from Him. From Scripture we know that this boldness is available because of the sacrifice Jesus made on our behalf by washing away our past and clearing up our accounts with God. So we come because of Him. We also know that if we are willingly walking in disobedience to the Lord’s call on our lives to walk in love in every area of our lives, we will have to square things up before we can make this bold entrance. But once we do through simple repentance, by His grace, then we are welcome to present our requests before Him and He will hear us. What mercies are you in need of today? Heed his invitation, walk right in, and ask with thanksgiving in your hearts for all He has done, is doing, and will do for you!

My Father, thank you for this promise in Hebrews 4:16 regarding prayer. I am acting on this Scripture now by coming to you daily with my bold requests, believing that once I ask in Jesus’ Name, the matter is said and done. I leave it in your hands. I lift up my needs to you now in faith… And I pray in the Name above every other Name:  Jesus. Amen

A Prayer For Our Kids Today
If you speak good words rather than worthless ones, you will be my spokesman. You must influence them; do not let them influence you! Jeremiah 15:19b We utter hundreds of words a day. How many of them are constructive? Oh that we would be obedient to the countless commands in Scripture to guar

My Unruly, Devastating Tongue. I Repent.
If anyone among you thinks he is religious, and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this one’s religion is useless. James 1:26 We can make a large horse go wherever we want by means of a small bit in its mouth. And a small rudder makes a huge ship turn wherever the pilot choose

The Shortest Prayer Can Be the Most Powerful
A friend of mine told me recently the story of a two-word prayer that she prayed that changed her life forever. Moments earlier she had given birth – an emergency C-section – to her firstborn, a son. In the midst of fear and elation, she suddenly realized that she wasn't up for the job. She coul
