DAY 188 (2019) - A little prayer can bring big and unlimited blessings! (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


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 shine on you that you are able to discover your sins and be willing to repent:

     “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, Time with Abba (Psalm 145:14-21; 2 Kings 4:5-5:17; Acts 25:1-27, Proverbs 18:19)




Today's main passages:

The Lord is near to all who call on him,
    to all who call on him in truth.

He fulfills the desires of those who fear him;
    he hears their cry and saves them.

The Lord watches over all who love him,
    but all the wicked he will destroy.

My mouth will speak in praise of the Lord.
    Let every creature praise his holy name
    for ever and ever.       Psalm 145:18-21


Jabez was more honorable than his brothers. His mother had named him Jabez,saying, “I gave birth to him in pain.” 10 Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, “Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.” And God granted his request.             1 Chronicles 4:9-10

Let's have a time to be still and give the Holy Spirit space to speak through the passages we have just read. Offer this time up to Jesus as you listen to him.

My Listening
Have you thought of such a little prayer could change the whole life of Jabez! His mother named him Jabez meaning "pain" and this name gave him a feeling that he was useless and his whole life could not bring to any change to himself or to other people!
Because of his intimate relationship with God that he could pray like that and God blessed him and raised him up from the lowest position to the most honoured status!
Today's Psalm gives us similar wonderful power of prayers! Prayer leads you to experience God moves more and more closer to you, listens to you, loves you, saves you and protects you!
What William Temple, Archbishop of Canterbury says is so true! He says, "When I pray, coincidences happen, and when I don't, they don't"!




A little prayer can bring big and unlimited blessings!

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to understand that a little pray can bring big and unlimited blessings. Teach us and lead us to pray, Lord Jesus. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.

1. What kind of inspiration and invitation have you received from today's message ?
