Prayer Teaching Notes

Answered Prayer by Renee Fisher
Do not be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day that you set your mind to gain understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to them. -Daniel 10:12 One of the most powerful answers to prayer happened in the book of Daniel. Daniel prayed and fasted for three weeks. He was under so much spiritual oppression that he almost died. When Daniel’s prayers were finally answered, I’m sure he felt like it was almost too late...


Hearing God by Nicole Unice
“AN INABILITY TO STAY QUIET IS ONE OF THE MOST CONSPICUOUS FAILINGS OF MANKIND. ” —WALTER BAGEHOT I’m a cynic by nature (which is probably why God is making me write this study.) So when I read Jonah, I get excited—and disturbed—by the first five words of the book: Jonah 1:1 “The Word of the Lord Came...” Uh-oh. What if I can’t hear that word? The rest of the book hardly matters if I have no idea what God is saying to me. If we don’t get quiet enough, we won’t hear the word of the Lord. Sure, he can speak louder, but who wants to wait for God to put a wrecking ball through your life before you...


How Interpretation of Tongues Helps You Know Father's Heart by Jamie Rohrbaugh
Do you want to become more intimately acquainted with Father God? Do you want to know what His heart beats for, what He loves, what He hates? If so, then asking the Holy Spirit for the gift of interpretation of tongues will help you. Interpretation of tongues is one of the 9 power gifts of the Spirit. It has both public and private uses. We usually hear about this gift in its public setting–in a corporate worship meeting after someone gives a prophetic word in a different tongue...


Much More! (3 of 3) by Carol McLeod
Paul … the man who had hunted down Christians to murder them. Now loved Jesus … He believed in Jesus as Messiah! Paul who had been born into every advantage and benefit that the Jewish culture could offer. Laid it all aside for the sake of the call of Christ Jesus. He loved the church at Ephesus - sent letter from Roman prison cell. “For this reason I bow my knees before the Father …” - Eph. 3:14. What is the reason that Paul bows his knees before the Father? What is it that drives Paul to his knees in prayer? Read the verse before in order to fight out his reasoning...


Don't Walk by the Light of Your Own Fire by Debbie Stuart
Grab your Bible, and turn to Isaiah 50:11 Lord, Your Word tells us that the unfolding of your Word gives light, would You please light our path with Your Word. Help us now to focus entirely upon You and Your Word and center our thoughts on Your plan and purpose for our life. I’m a country girl at heart. I love a porch, rocker or swing, flowers in the old washtub, birds gathered around the birdfeeders and the smell of honeysuckle growing on the fence. If I had a window sill, I’d put some tomatoes on it...


Victory in the Wilderness by Christina Patterson
In this passage we will find Jesus in the wilderness tired, hungry and under great pressure. And to add fuel to an already trying situation the devil himself pays Jesus a visit to tempt Him. As we study this lesson, maybe you are in a trying situation, a job loss, a difficult relationship, a bad health report. It’s out of your control and you...


If I Perish, I Perish by Paulette Phillips
Queen Esther was no doubt shocked, scared, overwhelmed and shaking at the thought that the future of her people rested on her small shoulders! How could Mordecai ask her to break the law and go before the king? How could he ask her to risk her life? The Dilemma of Esther: The king did not even know that Esther was Jewish, and she knew her intrusion into the king’s court could mean her death. She remembered that Queen Vashti refused to go when summoned by the king, and that was the end of her!


Becoming a Good Leader by Courtnaye Richard
Do you believe in your heart that God is calling you to be a leader? Whether it’s at work, in your community, or in ministry, do you feel that tug? Some of you reading this may already be in a leadership position, but I believe there’s always room for growth…especially spiritually. Wherever you are at this point in the process, I believe that God has placed this post on my heart to share these helpful nuggets with you...


The Invitation by Sheila Wise Rowe
"Whoever drinks the water that I will give him will never be thirsty. The water that I will give him will become in him a well of life that lasts forever." (John 4:14, New Life Version). The Lord has placed within each of us a yearning for this water, and He will accompany us on our Journey to The Well of Life. Yet we struggle to accept that the water Jesus offers will completely satisfy our thirst. God alone is our Healer...


First Worries by Jennifer Waddle
You may not remember the first time worry entered your life, or what caused your young heart to flutter with uncertainty. But I clearly remember one of my first moments of anxiety, and it has stuck with me all these years.It was the time my little brother and I rode the Joy Bus. (It even sounds a little creepy, doesn't it?) It was a big, white bus that would come through the neighborhoods, picking up kids for the Wednesday...


Does Anyone Really Change? by Stasi Eldredge
t’s wise to begin each new day and certainly each new work with prayer. So before you dive into the study, please pray! Invite the Holy Spirit to guide you. I like to begin each day—even before I get out of bed—with a simple prayer: “Jesus, I consecrate my life to you.” I am a woman who happily admits that I need all the help I can get! So to start: Jesus, I consecrate myself to you, this day to you, and this study to you. I pray for your guidance and your help. Please fill this time. Quicken my heart and my mind in response to the nudges of your Spirit. I give you permission to take me wherever you want me to go. I am yours. At least, I want to be yours. More and more. In Jesus’s Name. Amen...


Are You Losing Your Edge? by Jill Briscoe
After Elijah went to heaven in a fiery chariot (what other way would you expect him to go?), Elisha began his ministry. His work for God resembles his teacher’s in so many ways. There is an incident in his life that teaches us about different aspects of prayer. It is found in 2 Kings 6:1-7, and it has many good applications for those of us serving in ministry...


When God is Silent by April Motl
And Jesus went away from there, and withdrew into the district of Tyre and Sidon. And behold, a Canaanite woman came out from that region, and began to cry out, saying, ''Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David; my daughter is cruelly demon-possessed.'' But He did not answer her a word. And His disciples came to Him and kept asking Him, saying, ''Send her away, for she is shouting out after us.'' But He answered and said, ''I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel...


How to Add Power to Your Prayers with Fasting by Lori Hatcher
I have a confession to make. I don’t like fasting. And to be honest, part of the reason I don’t like fasting is because I like food. I enjoy it so much that the 21st century has coined a new word to describe me: food-ie: n. fóodee somebody who enjoys good food: an enthusiast of cooking, eating, or shopping for good food. Because of my greater-than-average dependence on food and my need to eat every few hours, my daughter fondly calls me The Toddler. Nicknames notwithstanding, everyone knows where to come if they need a peanut butter cracker or a bite-sized candy bar. I always have one stashed in my purse in case of emergency.
