The Christian Prayer Center stands for honesty and integrity, and facilitates the gathering of thousands of faithful prayer warriors in support of those who need prayer. If you are in need of prayer for healing, relationship renewal, or a fresh start with your financial situation, you are encouraged to post a prayer request.
If you have extra time, and would like to help others, we encourage you to read through the prayer requests posted on the site, and take the effort to pray for those who need your support. When Christians put their thoughts and concentration towards the needs of strangers, we can accomplish anything. God hears our petitions to him, and he answers them by showering us with miracle blessings. This is, when we have complete and total, faith.
God Bless you all, and thanks so much for your support. When the Lord hears us, there is no end to the good that can be done.
“One gives freely, yet grows all the richer; another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want. Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered.”
There is another great reason why God blesses those who give freely versus those that withhold what they should give. Generosity does not just take the form of giving to God’s work, but it also includes the giving we do to our friends, family, and neighbors. God wants us to be benevolent in all aspects of our life. When he sees that we help other people freely, he can comfortably give us blessings of finances in our lives, since He knows that we will be fair stewards to distribute what we have been granted. If God were to give financial blessings to people who never gave freely, God would not be serving all His children. Stinginess in God’s eyes is a terrible trait, and one that He never rewards with financial miracles. This is strategic, though. If He were to give to those who never gave, His work would not be fulfilled.
Giving needs to be done on a regular basis, and seeds planted in all manner of places. Just like a real garden, crops cannot grow unless you plant seeds in the soil. If you plant a single small seed, it will take time to grow, and its fruit will not be bountiful. If you plant an acre of seeds in rich soil, your harvest will be enough to feed many families. You will have so much leftover that you can preserve your crop, store it, and share it. This is God’s will, and one of the ways He gives us to differentiate our faith from the faith of others. Goodness of heart, and selflessness are qualities that allow God to create a blessed society as a whole, instead of several individuals who seem to have everything.
I just had the pleasure to make the acquaintance of a wonderful, and talented website owner, and faithful soul.
She has some terrific advice, and spiritual guidance on her site, and I recommend you check it out here: http://www.a-spiritual-journey-of-healing.com/
Katherine has endured pain and suffering, and has used a positive outlook on life and her faith to overcome it all.
Let me know what you think!
“Is any one of you in trouble? He should pray. Is anyone happy? Let him sing songs of praise. Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.”
Prayer is one of God’s many great gifts to us. Through prayer, we can ask God to provide us with anything we may desire. We can use prayer to ensure that all our essential needs will be met and that we can spend our time in this life in happiness and fulfillment. Receiving these miracles through prayer requires an understanding of the principles we have discussed. The most essential basis for prayer and the rewards that God grants us is seated in His teachings. We must remember that our time on earth is merely preparation for a higher purpose. The struggles and hardships we face are meant as training exercises. They teach us lessons to help us grow spiritually, and they test our achievements. Like successful students, we are rewarded for our spiritual development and we we are guided to new challenges to strengthen our souls. The faster we learn the principles behind successful prayer, the sooner we can begin to enjoy the bounty of God’s grace.
If you are like most people who are just beginning to realize the full potential of prayer, my advice is to start gradually. Begin with a simple request and put yourself into it wholeheartedly. Find ways to galvanize your faith both before, during, and after your campaign of prayer. Be persistent, even in the most basic of requests. To pray for a single molecule of oxygen demands just as much a miracle as a prayer for vast riches. In God’s eyes, neither of those requests is more difficult to fulfill than the other. We just need to show Him that we are following in His path and are deserving of His blessings. Be persistent in your requests. It is not that God does not hear you, it is that He needs to see how steadfast you are in your need and reliance on Him. Find ways to extend your generosity to others. We are never alone in this world, and the Bible repeatedly tells us to share our good fortune with others. Seek out agreement. This is a concept that often goes hand in hand with the other principles of prayer. We need the power of many voices standing beside us. It is through this solidarity that our resolve shines brightest. Be ever vigilant in your commitment to the Lord, to all that is good and holy, and remain focused on the path before you. As you begin to master the fundamentals of prayer, a whole new world of miracles will be unlocked for you. Glory be to God!
“The Lord detests the sacrifice of the wicked, but the prayer of the upright pleases him. “
We have talked a lot about the types of things we often request in prayer. Following the essential principles of prayer, these gifts will come to you easily. In addition to these more fundamental concepts, I am often asked about how to confront evil. Evil is something that exists throughout the world in many forms. Understanding these forms and where it comes from can help us use prayer to fight evil. Many people wonder why evil exists. Quite simply, evil exists because we allow it to. Without the cooperation of mankind, the devil would be completely powerless.
Shutting down the devil’s power is easy to do as long as we understand how he operates. One of the devil’s favorite tools is temptation. He will try to lead us astray by offering us short cuts that require only small compromises up front. Later on, once he knows we are vulnerable to making small compromises, he will work his way up to larger ones. The best defense against this type of attack is to resist all forms of temptation, no matter how large or how small. How can we identify when the devil tempts us? It is usually quite easy. If we are ever unsure, a strong relationship with Jesus will help strengthen your resolve. You can think of Jesus like a friend who walks by your side. If you treat this friend with respect and honor what he has to say, your friend will help keep you out of trouble.
