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

CHANGING YOUR ATTITUDE TO GRATITUDE


Thank you Father for your promises. Thank you brother Wes for this photo

It is so easy to cop an attitude….and I am using slang here.  But, really it is.  It goes back to the “me, me, me”, syndrome.  We can get opinionated, judgmental or even ungrateful.  And that is when, one has to stop, and do some checking out, some self-analyzing, and more than anything some praying.  First, for forgiveness.  Because God is so good.  It is easy to get into a slump, or a routine even, and then you just start taking things for granted.  I don’t want to take anything for granted.  Life, is funny.  Nothing is promised.  And life is precious.  I want to be the best I can be in my life.  But it begins, with who I am in God.  I know the difference.  From before God was in my life, and now.  And I am grateful, for my salvation.  I am so grateful, God did not let me self-destruct, in my own ways.  And even though, I am secure in my salvation.  I admit, myself, to having a few pity parties here and there, and one can ponder, on our mistakes, our misfortunes, our track record, our sins, etc.  But, if you have given your heart to Christ, something, does happen, he takes away your sins.  And he promises, he will not leave or forsake you, and he promises you something else, that you have a place in his Kingdom.  And then there are all his other promises in the Bible, that one can claim.  I have so much to be thankful for.  Because all I have to do is, go to Father, God.  My Lord, who is so merciful, good and kind to me.  And I feel like crying as I write this.  Because God is so good.  So when I see myself, like that, being ungrateful, I think, that is not right, and even today, I woke up, and said, I am not going to go to that place.  Of having an attitude.  I am going to purposely, try to change my attitude to gratitude.  I have so very much, to be thankful for.  Sure things are not perfect in my little world.  But I have a little family, who I love dearly.  And I have a home, a roof, over our heads.  We have food.  I may not have a job….And I want to do so much, but when I stop and look at me, and where I came from, I am thankful.  When I look at the possibilities, I am thankful.  I live in the United States, and with all of our political problems, etc.  We are still a great nation, under God.  And there is freedom.  Some people in other countries, cannot even worship, or speak about God.  But I can, you can too.  So, I am thankful.  I have my health, for the most part, though sometimes, my own choices, have caused a couple of lbs here, and there.  But, that can change.  See anything can happen or change, if you put your trust on God, in thankfulness, and start where you are at.  I just see, I am at a point, where I can either get negative, or positive.  And I want to be positive.  So, I am going to begin, making it a point to be thankful to God.  More so, and loving, and kind.  So with that said, I am thankful for you too.  Maybe, no one has told you this today.  But I love you, and so does God.  I am grateful.  Watching my words, to try and bless, I want to change, my behavior, my attitude to gratitude.

And so I add this, after I have already posted this….but to truly have a heart that is thankful, we need to be in a place where we are right with Christ.  I have a new friend, who just started a blog, (see her comment below)  and she wrote that the foundation is because we are saved, that is why we can be thankful….So, dear one, if you do not have that thankfulness, try God.  Give him a chance.  Below is my link, for the prayer of Salvation.  Today may be your day, to truly be thankful.  Pray it, and then write to me.

Blessings, Just My Thoughts….Elena Ramirez

THEREFORE, SINCE WE ARE RECEIVING A KINGDOM THAT CANNOT BE SHAKEN, LET US BE THANKFUL AND SO WORSHIP GOD ACCEPTABLY WITH REVERANCE AND AWE, FOR OUR “GOD IS A CONSUMING FIRE”…HEBREWS 12:28

A Prayer of Hope….

Father, forgive me.  I love you, and I am sorry, for my attitude sometimes being negative, and more then anything, not faithful, to believing your promises.  And so, I get ungrateful.  Forgive me, for I am so very thankful.  Help me, to change my heart to be more positive, more thankful.  For there is much to be thankful for, starting with my salvation.  And you, my family, and all my other blessings.  Too many to count.  Forgive me.  I love you Lord, thankful.  Let me show that, by being thankful.  In Jesus name,  Amen
