If you read yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, you'll know that my family is having a problem.
It's a serious problem that I cannot explain to you.
However, something happened yesterday that I am grateful for. I wish I could tell you what happened, but I can't.
But, I will say... Praise God! Hallelujah! Thank You, Jesus! Thank You, for answering my prayer and the prayer of others for my family, in a positive way!
No, the problem has not totally ended. And, may not for a while, yet.
If you're a friend of my daughter's on Facebook (FB), you're probably aware of what is happening. If you're not, just know that prayer is still needed, even though something positive happened, yesterday.
Prayer... is so very important.
Yes, God told us in His word to never cease praying. But, He also told us various ways of how we should pray.
Just like He did a bit, in Matthew 6:7, "But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking."
I do not use vain repetitions, as the heathen do. They think they shall be heard for their much speaking.
I do not use memorized prayer that people and/or church groups have created.
Why? Because God told us not to pray using repetitions.
So, how do I pray?
I pray as if I'm speaking with Him.
I follow what He suggested we do when He told us about the Lord's prayer.
I honour Him.
I praise Him.
I make my prayer request.
I thank Him. And, quote scripture, whenever I can.
Then, I close my prayer as He told us we should... by, praying in the name of Jesus. Amen.
How did I find this out?
By reading His Word, the Bible. And, studying it.
My friend, if you are not reading the Bible, please do so. For God will provide all you need.
Thank you, for praying for my family's need. May God bless you for your continued prayer.
Until next time...
