Bold Prayers and Abundance – October 19 Devotions

Here we are, beginning the last two full weeks of October. Doesn’t seem possible, does it? The weather has changed substantially, at least here in Maine, with heavy frost and temperatures dipping into the 20s at night. The positive side of this change in weather is that  I can wear my favorite sweaters, sweatshirts, and flannel pants or leggings!

 

 

Do you believe in the power of prayer? I’ve experienced the results of others praying for me, and seen the results of my prayers for others.

Consider today’s devotional thought on prayer…

“Some people are unable to pray boldly

because their consciences bother them.

There are things they need to repent of

and commitments they need to make to do things differently.

If that is the case with you, then just do it.

If something is wrong in your life,

don’t spend the rest of your days feeling bad about it…

do something about it!

Ephesians 3:20 tells us that God is able to do

exceedingly, abundantly, above and beyond

all that we ever dare to help, ask, or think.

Are you daring in prayer?

Are you expecting enough?

Satan is afraid of bold, daring, confident, fearless,

and expectant prayer.

Pray: Lord, I am challenged to rise up and be more daring in prayer.

I truly believe that You are able to do abundantly more

than I have ever dared to ask or think. Amen.”

–Joyce Meyer in “The Confident Woman Devotional”

My reflections:

I can always use this reminder to be consistent and faithful in praying, and believing that God hears and answers prayers. Even more, to pray boldly and believe for those superabundant “above all I can ask or think” kind of answers!

So what are YOUR thoughts?

Is bold prayer part of your life? Have you seen answers to prayer that encourage you and your faith?

  1. It’s been really cold here, too. my boys went to school in their winter coats today.

  2. I’m a firm believer in prayer. I prayer everyday routinely and throughout the day spontaneously.

    Still, I rarely ask boldly through prayer. Today, after reading your post, I did and I will.

  3. Hello Klee, It’s been cold here in TN too and I absolutely love it. Fall is my favorite season. Prayer is such an important part of our relationship with the Lord. I love the devotional you shared. I think it’s true that if we feel guilty or unworthy we are reluctant to bring our requests to Him.I have experienced it myself.

  4. I am a woman of huge faith. God, prayers and my church family have seen me through many trying times. Actually, I’m off to my Bible study meeting right now. Blessings, Brenda

  5. I believe in the strength and power of prayer. Just before my mother passed away a year ago, I sat by her bedside and played her favorite Tennessee Ernie Ford spiritual music. I believe it comforted both of us.

  6. I do beleive in the power of prayer. It has moved mountains/

  7. KLee,
    Too chilly here, too!
    Yes, I have a prayer group for my work in progress. Totally believe in lifting everything up to prayer. But it’s a great reminder that we all have the capacity to reach for the BOLDNESS.
    Thanks!

  8. I was just thinking about this today. I do believe we need to be diligent in prayer and the authority we have in Christ. There are so many things we will never know changed because of a prayer sent.

  10. Yes I believe in prayers. And all we need here is prayers we have a super typhoon here and so many houses was still flooded

  11. I would always hold a conversation with God, regardless of where I am and who I am with. When something good happens, I say thank you in my thoughts, knowing that it was him who helped me get that blessing. So yes, I believe in the power of prayer.

  12. Here in RI we just started the cold weather. Last week it was heat in the morning and AC in the afternoon!

  13. This is so true. A prayer is very powerful. Very often, I utter my prayers and I’m always surprised the I get the answers. Sometimes, right away, but sometimes, it takes longer, but I always get answers.

  14. Love it! I absolutely believe in the power of prayer and can tell a difference if my day is saturated in prayer or not. Lately I haven’t been the greatest at it, and really need to get van on track..
