spiritual battleWhat is the point of prayer?

For the Christian, praying is supposed to be like breathing, easier to do than to not do. We pray for a variety of reasons. For one thing, prayer is a form of serving God (Luke 2:36-38) and obeying Him. We pray because God commands us to pray (Philippians 4:6-7). Prayer is exemplified for us by Christ and the early church (Mark 1:35; Acts 1:14; 2:42; 3:1; 4:23-31; 6:4; 13:1-3). If Jesus thought it was worthwhile to pray, we should also. If He needed to pray to remain in the Father’s will, how much more do we need to pray?

Another reason to pray is that God intends prayer to be the means of obtaining His solutions in a number of situations. We pray in preparation for major decisions (Luke 6:12-13); to overcome demonic barriers (Matthew 17:14-21); to gather workers for the spiritual harvest (Luke 10:2); to gain strength to overcome temptation (Matthew 26:41); and to obtain the means of strengthening others spiritually (Ephesians 6:18-19).

How can we have everlasting life?How can we have everlasting life? - The Word of God assures us that all who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ will have everlasting life (John 3:16; 6:47; 1 John 5:13). The Greek word translated “everlasting” means “perpetual, eternal, forever.” Perhaps the word perpetual best explains the biblical concept of everlasting life; it is life that, once begun, continues perpetually into eternity. This speaks to the idea that man's life is not merely physical. Rather, the true life of human beings is spiritual, and while the physical life ends, the spiritual continues throughout eternity. It is perpetual.

Mrs. Iola Jane Brooks could lead a choir in during the processionals each Sunday morning! What fond and loving memories the Morning Star family share of Mrs. Brooks’ fashions, cooking and certainly, not least, her commitment to the music ministry of the “Star” and of course the Lord Jesus Christ, her personal Savoir.

 

Bible Study
The Character of AbrahamThe Character of Abraham - Abraham did what we all do when we are waiting on God to fulfill His promise to us after a while he began to doubt that God would protect him for the duration of the wait. Afraid that he would be killed for being Sarah’s husband, he lied to Pharaoh, gained a lot of riches, but got into trouble for sinning against God and Pharaoh. But God proved that He was still protecting Abraham when Pharaoh did not kill him or his wife, but set them both free to continue the path that God had placed them on. Later on, with the sacrifice of Isaac, God tested Abraham’s faith again, only this time of a more serious nature. This shows that Abraham was just as human as the rest of us, patriarch or not.
