AN EXERCISE IN PRAYER BY THE HOLY SPIRIT ~ By Christian Author Elena Ramirez


IMG_4667.jpgAs we grow in Christ, as we grow in prayer.  There are just some things, we should do in the Holy Spirit.  

Repentance, always clears the slate, I believe.  When we come to Christ humble, repentant, for perhaps those things we think, or have allowed into our spirits, that could corrupt us.  We need to be careful.  Things that are sin in His eyes.  

But I just had a sense, that when we pray, we really need to see with our “spiritual eyes.”  We need to see Jesus, there, when we pray.  

Christ told us, He would not leave, or forsake us.  He told us, that He would never leave us.  

I believe the Lord, gave me this thought, to help us in our faith.  To help us see.  Sometimes, we ask for things, and we are not sure, He has heard us, or we are not sure, if  there is a way.  

But Christ told us, He is the way, the truth, and life.  John 14:6.  He told us, if we asked in His name, the father would grant it.  He told us if we believed it would be ours.  He told us, that He would give us the desires of our heart, as we delight in Him.  Oh yes, give God the glory, honor, and praise, as you approach His throne.  

How can we delight in our Lord?  Well, one way, is when we pray, actually open your spiritual eyes, to see Christ there, listening.  

Let me repeat that.  Look at Christ there, when you close your eyes, to pray.  See Him, attentive to your need.  Because again, He is there, He will not leave or forsake you.  See Him, in the spirit, the Holy Spirit. 

Quiet your spirit, to just hearing His voice.  Read a King James scripture, that is Holy, and anointed, and let Him, counsel you.  I cannot even count the many times, that God has spoken to me, in need of an answer, and I just opened up my King James Bible.

He says, He knows our desire, even before we speak it.  So, think, and ponder on Him, when you go to His throne.  See Him, in His majesty.  See Him, as you seek His Kingdom, and all things will be added unto you.  

Sometimes words do not come to us.  We may be hurting, we may be distracted, but as a disciple of Christ, we do need to discipline ourselves.  Just look for Him, in the spirit.  Beware of counterfeits though, in the spirit, and beware of the enemies voice, who always tries to be deceptive.  This is why repentance, is so important.  

And never, ever, set up an idol, or a symbol, that would grieve Him.  He hates idolatry.  So get rid of such things, even in prayer.  Now I know many might disagree with that thought, but Father, is very jealous in these matters.  And wants us to search for Him by the spirit, not by a graven image, that is even a commandment that tells us not to set up.  

THOU SHALT NOT MAKE UNTO THEE, ANY GRAVEN IMAGE, OR ANY LIKENESS OF ANYTHING THAT IS IN HEAVEN ABOVE, OR THAT IS IN THE EARTH BENEATH, OR THAT IS IN THE WATER UNDER THE EARTH.  EXODUS 20:4  KJV.

YE SHALL MAKE YOU NO IDOLS NOR GRAVEN IMAGE, NEITHER REAR YOU UP A STANDING IMAGE, NEITHER SHALL YE SET UP ANY IMAGE OF STONE IN YOUR LAND, TO BOW DOWN UNTO IT:  FOR I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD.  Leviticus 26:1.  KJV.

We have to try and learn and know, what pleases our Lord.  Anyway, Christ, knows by the spirit, what you need.  Know, that He is listening there, searching your heart.  Knowing the mind of the spirit.  Because He makes “intercession” for you according to the will of God.  

AND HE THAT SEARCHETH THE HEARTS KNOWETH WHAT IS THE MIND OF THE SPIRIT, BECAUSE HE MAKETH INTERCESSION FOR THE SAINTS ACCORDING TO THE WILL OF GOD.  ROMANS 8:27  KJV.

When you know He is there, when you know He is seeing you, it just makes your faith, easier.  It makes your prayer have a sense of accomplishment.  Because He sees you, He is there.  Just see HIM with your spiritual eyes.  Try to please Him, humble, when you pray.  

I share this, because as an intercessor, I have learned some things, in trying to understand what works, and what does not.  What pleases God.  But if we are humble, if we are taking the whole word of God, that is King James word, and we are not using anything counterfeit or corrupt, that the enemy would use to deceive.  I believe our chances in prayer, can make a difference.  And every one knows, that I only recommend a King James Bible because it is holy.  It is anointed.  It is preserved in Heaven and earth, and I believe when you use it, your on the same page with God.  And thats always the goal….

Never underestimate prayer, but do what you can to make sure your prayer is heard.  Sin, will separate us from God, and He will not hear.  But the sweetest, simplest prayers can be heard, even in our child like faith.  

Looking for Him, to be there, when you pray, is just an exercise in prayer.  In faith….

Blessings, and love Elena Ramirez

TWO REASONS WHY PRAYER MAY NOT BE ANSWERED

Sometimes hope will flee. You have prayed, you don’t understand….

Scripture tells us, if we have iniquity in our hearts God will not hear us. Read King James Psalms 66:18 King James only….

Sometimes, we have to see, what do we embrace, what do we accept, what do we see, as harmless, yet, may be a spiritual entity, that God does not accept. REPENTANCE IS NEEDED.

Then, there is praise, and some people forget, the past, of sins, or the forgiveness they have received. How do your express your gratitude? Do you just go on, or do you give praise, every day of your life, to God as a testimony?

See we have to see…

We overcome the enemy, by the blood of the lamb, and the words of our testimony. Remember scripture says, do not give place to the enemy. But do you do that, do you give place to the enemy…. by not saying anything, that ushers the praises of God, for you to have a front and center seat at the throne of God?

Hmmmmm. Something for all of us to think about? Please share this.  And sign up for the blog.  You may just help someone get an answer to prayer….  Then God will bless you.

And I will just add. Praises to God my father, with thanks! Even with daily repentance, as I humble myself before you Lord. For the sacrifice of Christ! Thank you Lord, for my salvation….♥

AND THEY OVERCAME HIM BY THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB, AND BY THE WORD OF THEIR TESTIMONY; AND THEY LOVED NOT THEIR LIVES UNTO THE DEATH. REVELATION 12:11 KING JAMES ONLY.

DAYDREAM YOUR BEST DREAM~WRITE THE VISION~WRITE YOUR PRAYER


Habakkuk 2:2

And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.  

As a writer, I know, the power, I have to write. I know, I can create an atmosphere, to be an expression, of who I am in Christ. And I can use my words, to either build up or destroy.

I always want to be careful to choose my words carefully.I want to bless God, and bless you, his people. I want people, to see the goodness of God. That miracles are available. That all things are possible, because of who He is. That Christ died for you, so you can live abundantly.

I always want to be an expression of love…… I always want to be writing, whatever HE puts on my heart, because I see myself, as a servant of God.

Well, today, I want to inspire you. And perhaps, encourage you. You may be daydreaming about something. Did you know that is a vision God has given to you? This photograph, confirms that! His word, is that confirmation!

He knows everything about you, every thought, every hope, and dream. Today, there may be something on your heart, you long for. Something, you may want, or desire. It could be that vacation, that big house, that healing….A new business.  An idea, you want to turn into a reality…..

Whatever it is…..

Now, pull out a pen and pencil, and write it down. Yes write it down. You don’t have to make a lengthy expression, unless you want to. It could just be a paragrah. But be specific. Its your vision!  It is now a prayer.

Then look up a scripture that would support that promise from God, and claim it. Write it down! Now, keep it in your Bible, or a place, where you will see it often.  This is your prayer….to remind you of Gods promises!

Yesterday, I daydreamed. That was my vision. And, I don’t do that often, but I know God put this on my heart. And whenever God puts it on my heart, I want to be faithful, to him, and to others, to share, to bless God, and you.

Have a wonderful day, in the Lord.

Write your vision….and see God do a new thing! After all its his word.  It is prayer….a reminder to you, and God, of Gods wonderful promises.  Don’t let the dream go!

AND THY SERVANT IS IN THE MIDST OF THY PEOPLE WHICH THOU HAST CHOSEN, A GREAT PEOPLE, THAT CANNOT BE NUMBERED, NOR COUNTED FOR MULTITUDE. GIVE THEREFORE THY SERVANT AN UNDERSTANDING HEART TO JUDGE THY PEOPLE, THAT I MAY DISCERN BETWEEN GOOD AND BAD; FOR WHO IS ABLE TO JUDGE THIS THY GREAT SO GREAT A PEOPLE? AND THE SPEECH PLEASED THE LORD…..I Kings 3:9

Much love in Christ, and Praise be to my Lord, God through Jesus Christ. Holy Spirit, Inspire us….

Elena Ramirez

p.s. Feel free to share this….so others, can be inspired, by their visions as well. You may very well, be making someones dreams come true….Including yours!

Father, I praise you, Lord, you know my vision is to serve you, and I do claim my hearts desire.  I have obeyed you in this, and written the vision down.  It is my prayer, and I believe it is point of contact, to remind you, and myself, that you will do this great thing.  Thank you Lord, for this witty idea, and may it bless others as well.  For their dreams to become a vision, that will turn into a prayer.  In Jesus name.  Amen
