OT DAY 410 - God's Tailor-made Timing and Blessing (Please click here for English podcast)

Silence

1.   Put on your “brakes” and stop for a moment of silence
2.   Wait for God. Breathe deep for God's peace and feel His presence. Exhale your worries.

Praise and Thanksgiving

1.   Think through your day, all the times that made you smile
2.   Thank God for all those moments, and for all those people
3.   Open your heart to praise the Lord

     The Lord is gracious and merciful,
        slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.  
       The Lord is good to all,
         and his mercy is over all that he has made.
                    Psalm 145:8-9

Confession and Repentance (Subjective Shifting Devotion Method http://bishopsilas.blogspot.ca/2009/08/count-down-5-subject-shifting-devotion.html)

1.  Pray for the Holy Spirit to work in you:

     “Dear Holy Spirit, shine your light into the places of darkness in my life. Show me my sins, everything that blocks me from encountering God. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”

2.  Through the Holy Spirit, examine yourself for a short silence and then pray:

     "Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for dying on the cross for our sins and being victorious over death and sin. I confess my sin to you(pause, to tell Jesus what the Holy Spirit has shown you). Forgive my sins by your blood and help me follow you. Holy Spirit, fill me that I may be able to receive your gift to love God and His people. In Jesus Name I pray, Amen."

The Word (1 Samuel 1:19-20)

19 They rose early in the morning and worshiped before the Lord; then they went back to their house at Ramah. And Elkanah knew Hannah his wife, and the Lord remembered her.20 And in due time Hannah conceived and bore a son, and she called his name Samuel, for she said, “I have asked for him from the Lord.”
                 1 Samuel 1:19-20

Let's have a time to be still and give the Holy Spirit space to speak through the passage we have just read. Offer this time up to Jesus as you listen to him, while listening to "Gabriel's Oboe"

My Listening
         When I shared with how God gave Chung Kai Chow and his wife Connie a twin, Josephine and Jonathan in 2009 after I prayed for them in 2007 (If you have not read my last blog, please do so now), I wrote:

I am so moved that there are at least a couple who are reading my blog now who desperately wish to have a child. Have faith, follow Hannah's way to pray now.

         Praise the Lord that I received an email today from a good friend in Hong Kong. This is what she sent me through WhatsApp shown on my iPhone:

         


          I am so thankful to our Lord Jesus Christ to use my blog/podcast to give hope and encouragements to many people all over the world so many times. Every time when I received someone sent me a message telling me how they were being blessed and encouraged, I was so joyful and thankful.

          If God could give Hannah a son, if God can encourage my friend and to remove her fear of losing her baby through my blog, God can also give you hope and blessing like that today.

          Please pray for my dear friend asking Jesus to cover her and her baby with His blood and that we can see the beautiful picture of her new-born baby in eight to nine month's time. 

             
Dear Lord Jesus, 
Help us to know that you are the Lord who really answers prayers. Teach us to pray in your own way so that we will experience the power of prayer starting today. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.

Reflect on these questions:
1. Do you think God would answer prayer like that? Do you think the message of my friend in Hong Kong to all of us is a coincidence? What inspiration have you got today?

    2. How are you going to pray now to ask God for what you desperately need?

3. What have you got from Jesus today?
