Power Prayer is Quitting Prayer

Power prayer is quitting prayer. But no-one wants that--they'll crucify you if you even think of introducing that idea in their prayer meetings. 

They still do it today--babbling words, making it long, and opting for high-sounding content. Often, it's a contest of whose prayer sounds more sublime and spiritual. This, no matter if my Jesus has tipped us about what prayer is not. That's the problem with this generation--it knows Jesus' words but adamant about doing things to the contrary--and calling that Christianity.

In the Lord's prayer, my Jesus taught us an ultra simple and very generalized prayer. Yet some smart fellows insist that we keep prayers specific. Jesus just put a short generalized sentence about our needs in his prayer: "Give us today our daily bread." That covers everything we need. Simply say that wholeheartedly  (or make it even shorter, like "penge" or give me) and God gets everything you mean--plus more--right away. No need to explain--because he knows we need them before we ask. In fact, power prayer is quitting prayer.

But our stubborn, bird-brain generation still wants to complicate things, like the ACTS formula, etc., etc. Jesus did stress one thing in the prayer he taught us--what matters is our worship in prayer and surrender to his will--which no-one wants. Everybody wants all talk--and good talk at that--but no surrendering. Because if you're totally surrendered, there's no need to pray---quitting the kind of prayer that men's churches teach today. 

Men's churches say prayer has got to have this and that and those and more of the above. When they pray for a meal, they need to pray for those starving in Vietnam and Africa and Pluto. But Jesus merely looked up to heaven and said, "Gee, thanks!" and the Father was so delighted that he multiplied a few bread and fish to feed thousands. Why can't that get through our thick skulls? Why can't we get that it's not our words but our hearts that God looks at?

Oh, but you hear them all preach and teach that God looks at our hearts, not our deeds or words. But when these preachers pray, they do it all the same--babble and make everything long and nice and poetic. Each time they ask me to pray before meals in churches and fellowships, they think it odd that all I say is, "Father, thank you!" 

In one parable, my Jesus introduced a new prayer--going to bed with the Father. It's a powerful prayer. A neighbor had a guest and he had no bread to feed him. So he went to his neighbor and kept knocking and knocking on the door, though it was late. The neighbor told him, "I can't get up and give you bread because my children are already with me in bed."

You may opt to knock and knock and the door will indeed be opened, but you may also opt for a higher option--sleep with the Father in bed. That way, no need to knock, no need to pray. Well, prayer here is in the form of a soft whisper, like--"Dad, I'm hungry!" Or, the Father will simply look you in the face and say, "You can't sleep? I know--you're hungry. Let me fix you a glass of warm milk." 

No need to pray--because prayer has taken on a higher level. Your spirit bears witness with the Father's spirit. At this level, prayer becomes life. 

Ever-increasing glory in prayer and worship is--"Be still; simply know that I am God."

How to Know If a Ministry is Failing in God's Eyes

It's easy to see if a ministry is really failing. Remember, God is spirit. The only way to please him is in spirit and in truth. You cannot please God by your church building, church income, membership size or Sunday worship programs.

Actually, the ministry Jesus showed us in the bible was so simple. It's super simple, in fact. It's mainly on preaching, miraculous healing, and discipleship. Just these three. We don't have to add anything to this. Jesus did only these three and he did well. He pleased the Father to the max.

Preaching

You don't have to be a titled preacher to do this. Just share the Word. All you need is knowledge of the Word of God and the power of the Holy Spirit. These two equip you to the max. The Word of God is God breathed "so that the man of God may be adequate, fully equipped for every good work," [2 Timothy 3.17].

You see the words, "fully eq…

Micah: Statutes of Omri and Practices of Ahab

It begins with the statutes of Omri (Micah 6.16). Omri was a follower of the evil ways of Jeroboam (1Kings16). He laid down the statutes (or doctrines) and Ahab his son applied and developed them. These are all against being God's flesh on earth.

Omri’s statutes were simple: they were based on wicked and corrupt ways as King Jeroboam did them. How did Jeroboam do them? Simply by doing God’s will in man’s ways. He disobeyed the prophet Ahijah who told him to do everything in God’s ways alone: “If you do everything I command you and walk in my ways and do whatever is correct in my eyes...I will build you a dynasty...”(1Kings11).

Jeroboam grabbed God's will of kingship but did it in greed. Man's ways are nothing but greed, no matter how they try to make it look religious or spiritual or "Christian."

But because of his greed for corrupt power he did everything wicked—he did everything in man’s ways. He always “thought to himself” and not to God, and he revived the …

God as Your Stronghold

"My Life's Stronghold is God." -Ps.27
We read about it several times in the bible that God is a stronghold. Do we know what "stronghold" means? Often, we associate "stronghold" with the devil, like "the devil's stronghold." So, what do we mean by God is my stronghold? How does God become a stronghold. If you don't know what it means to have God as stronghold, that's a stronghold.
Devil as Stronghold
When a person has strong propensities to sin and evil, we say that it's due to a stronghold. And we mean that the devil's hold on that person is really strong. No matter how much that person wants to change and start going to church, he just can't. When presented with a situation that makes him choose between good and evil, he is likely to choose evil even if in his mind he wants good. If he chooses good, it'll just be for a moment---probably 5 seconds---and then be back to evil again. That's a stronghold.
