GOD INSTRUCTED ME ON PRAYER


Especially when the Biblical Word is your focus!

Have you ever pondered the expression, ‘Babes in Christ’?  Are you now or have you ever been a ‘Babe in Christ’?  Well, for me, the answer is a resounding YES!  Another expression in the Christian faith that is highly associated with the first question are the words ‘Born again’.  When we think on these 2 expressions, how should we analyze them?

Allow me to let you in on a little secret conversation I had with Jesus on how I should pray to Him about the 2 questions above…He imparted to me the first verse of a song recorded by the Statler Brothers entitled, Just A Little Talk With Jesus:

                           “I {you} once was lost in sin but Jesus took me {you} in
                           And then a little light from Heaven filled my soul
                          He bathed my heart in love and wrote my name above
                          And just a little talk with Jesus made me whole.”

Thank you, Lord, for You gave me a preponderance of the evidence that I could understand and apply in my prayer life.

Evidence Unvailed

 I once read that in nature, all living things reproduce themselves.  So, if we apply this to the Christian populace, we emphatically know that none of us can consider ourselves a natural-born Christian.  We were all converted to Christianity.  Thus, we consider ourselves ‘born again’ and as an infant…a ‘babe in Christ’.  Yes, I too, was once a babe in Christ, but now that I have been born again, this time by the Blood of Jesus Christ, I am being made whole each and every day! And my prayer life is becoming more meaningful and authentic in every expression of my faith. The Holy Scriptures bear this out in 1 Peter 2:2 which reads: “As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby.”

Below is a list of words that you may consider incorporating in your prayers to express just how grateful you are for God’s divine intervention in your life. Yes, I am suggesting that you become an astute and conscientious Wordsmith when communicating with God.

My personal experience/example of praying God’s Word back to Him

Scripture Lesson:

God’s Blessing on Zambia
(An Adaptation of Isaiah 44:1-5)

“Yet hear me now, O Missionaries to Zambia, My servants, and American Baptist Churches of the South whom I have chosen. Thus says the Lord who made you and formed
you from the womb, who will help you while
on your journey: “Fear not, O Missionaries My servants; and you, Eleazar, whom I have chosen as their guide. For I will pour water on the House of Lusaka who
is thirsty, and floods on the dry ground of
compounds in Zambia;
I will pour My Spirit on all those who journeyed
to Africa and My blessing on Eleazar’s dream
for the Zambian people;
New churches will spring up among the grass huts like willows by the watercourses.” Hope International Church of Lusaka will say, ‘I am the Lord’s’; Bethel Church of Kafue will call himself by the Name of Jacob; Soweto Baptist Church will write with his hand, ‘The Lord’s” and Riverside Baptist Church of Chingola will name himself by the name of Israel. (This 2002 prophecy is certain to come to pass saith the Lord.)
