Believe In Prayer


Again the power of PRAYER has been recieved!! A very close friend of mine has been in need of prayer. She called me last night scared, and crying out to Jesus for help. She asked that I please pray for her son, he is in trouble. He has not been on the right road for sometime now. Out of control he has been, and now the police are involved and this could involve in death. I don't want to go into all the things that they have done, but this situation is very bad.

I heard her cry's, feeling all her pain, crying with her, and immediately I started asking the Lord for his help. I called my husband in the room, explained what was going on, then told her I was putting her on speaker phone so that we may pray together, as he sat and listened to her pain, her crying, seeing the tears flow down my face, we began to pray. We asked the Lord to protect them that no harm would be put on them. That this would go smoothly, there be no shooting, we also asked the Lord to slam them down, give up, we asked that they be slammed against a wall to get them to see that Lord is real. we prayed, and prayed, must of lasted 20 min., maybe longer I don't know.


This morning I got the call, it was mom! Her son had called in the middle of the night and had said they were leaving the state. Wednesday morning now, She told me she had just recieved a phone call from the boy who was with her son, the boy was doing the driving! He told her that he doesn't know what happened but that all of a sudden they were going down this road and it was like something hit him, and made him pull off the side of the road, and he went to sleep. They were woken up and had cop cars surrounding them, and mom's son said to the boy what happened, and the boy said I don't know. The cops took them in, and the boy said that the cops were nice to them. They are facing really bad charges----possibly 90 years. Mom told the boy God did this, that we prayed for you guys, and God did this. She had other calls coming in so we couldn't chat anymore, and we will later on this evening. But she knows God, she believes in God, I really haven't talked to her since by brother's funeral, but she remembered me and called me for help with prayer's.


What a awesome God, how he hears our cry's and answers our prayers. There are family's out there with so many problems whether they big or small, But the WORD addresses them all. Whatever the problem, whatever the need, no matter how great the stress or distress, God has the solution in His Word. His Word is Complete. All we as Christians have to do is believe what God's word says and ACT on it in Faith.


Mark 11:24
Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.


I am so sorry for any mom that has to go thru something like this. I am also greatful she called me, she knows how much I love the lord. How I believe in the word, and I believe in prayer. I Thank the Lord for answering our prayers.


Matthew 21:21


Jesus replied, "I tell you the truth, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and it will be done. 22If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer."

Hi Sharon, Boy can I remember interceding for my two children who are now on their own. But when my son called saying he needed a miracle while in Basic training for the Marines. It seemed like a hopeless situation. But I started praying the Psalm 91 prayer the whole chapter everyday for him and The Lord did a miracle and prayer was answered.

My daughter during her teenage years went through some issues as well, again the Lord always made a way out for her, where there seemed to have been no way. My husband and I interceded in prayer for her and once again the Lord moved in a mighty way.

More so alot of the praying does begin with the moms for their kids.
I once told a friend that I can just imagine when Mothers pray for their children, our prayers go up to heaven and are tied with pink ribbons, so when the Lord sees them he quickly grabs them knowing it's from a Mom praying just for her children. *smile* he knows the hearts of a Mom for her kids.

Sharon,
Your post is great. I think I read it before I left. I've just put something new on my blog that may relate to what is happening among people today.

Yes, Our Lord is always waiting to hear our calls for help! And, He works miracles every day. I feel so sad for those who do not call upon Him and trust Him to lead their lives.

Have a happy 4th!
