Prayer Calendar 
Sunday, April 24 2011

34 Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together. 35 One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: 36 "Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?"

37 Jesus replied: "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself.' 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments." Matthew 22:24-40

As we read through this month's Bible verses, remember that God loves us very much, and what He wants more than anything is not our money, our strength, or our hard work, but our love in return!

This month we will look at some of the prayers in the scriptures. Some were prayed by men of God, a few did not believe at all and were determinedly disobedient to the Lord. When we see how prayers were answered then it can increase our faith that our God does indeed answer prayer.

In Deuteronomy 4: 7 Moses declares, "What other nation is so great as to have their gods near them the way the LORD our God is near us whenever we pray to him?" And we can echo that as we declare, "In what other religion of the world does God come down to His people, hear and answer their smallest prayers?" Our God is near to us as we pray. Draw near to Him in return!

As Jesus was on his way, the crowds almost crushed him. 43 And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years, but no one could heal her. 44 She came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak, and immediately her bleeding stopped.

45 "Who touched me?" Jesus asked.

When they all denied it, Peter said, "Master, the people are crowding and pressing against you."

46 But Jesus said, "Someone touched me; I know that power has gone out from me."

47 Then the woman, seeing that she could not go unnoticed, came trembling and fell at his feet. In the presence of all the people, she told why she had touched him and how she had been instantly healed. 48 Then he said to her, "Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace." Luke 8:42b-48

Remember this month that just as the woman touched His cloak in faith and was healed, when we reach out to Jesus Christ He will bring great healing to our lives!

Have you ever said to yourself, "Oh I wish I just knew what God wanted me to do!" "I wish I had some direction in my life!" "What does God want me to DO with my life?" Many of us have been in this uncomfortable place, not knowing what His call might be. Or we feel we are past the point of being useful to Him. We look for a sign from heaven but rarely see one! After having struggled with this myself and having watched others spin around and around in their lives not knowing which direction to take, I have found some suggestions from scripture which I will share with you. You may be able to look at God's direction in a different light. What does He want?

In Jeremiah 29:11, God says, "I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you a future and a hope." He also tells them to settle down, have their families, build houses, raise gardens, and seek the good of the city they live in (check it out! Jer. 29) after that, He says, they can call upon Him and He will answer.

While they did ?ordinary' things in obedience to His directives, they could call on Him and HE WOULD ANSWER!! So what was the last ?ordinary' thing God asked you to do, something He clearly wants you to do? Have you done it yet?
