THE WATERS WERE BITTER UNTIL MOSES PRAYED
EXODUS 15:25 And he cried unto the LORD; and the LORD shewed him a tree, which when he had cast into the waters, the waters were made sweet: there he made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there he proved them,
BENSON COMMENTARY Moses did what they ought to have done. He made request unto the Lord for help in this distress. It is the greatest relief of the cares of magistrates and ministers, when those under their charge make them uneasy, that they may have recourse to God by prayer. He is the … (1 comments)

prayer: PRAY - 10/02/18 05:52 AM
PRAY
LUKE 6:28 Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.
PULPIT COMMENTARY Jesus himself, on his cross, when he prayed that his murderers might be forgiven, for they knew not what they were doing, and his true servant Stephen, who copied faithfully his Lord in his own dying moments, are beautiful though extreme examples of what is meant here.

PRAYER AND THANKSGIVING ARE THE TWO WINGS OF THE SOUL 
1 THESSALONIANS 5:18 Give thanks in everything, for this is the will of God toward you in Christ Jesus.
ELLICOTT'S COMMENTARY To the Christian who really trusts his Father’s providence, and believes that his prayers are heard, every moment’s occurrence will be just that which he has prayed for—the fulfilment of our Father’s will. It is for this reason that thanksgiving is so inseparably joined with prayer.
MATTHEW HENRY'S COMMENTARY A truly religious life is a life of constant joy. And we should rejoice more, if we prayed more. Prayer will help forward … (0 comments)

prayer: AND WHEN THEY EXCLUDE YOU - 03/28/17 04:03 AM
AND WHEN THEY EXCLUDE YOU
LUKE 6:22 Blessed are you when people hate you, when they exclude you and insult you and reject your name as evil, because of the Son of Man.
CAMBRIDGE BIBLE The world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world; And ‘the world’ by no means excludes the so-called ‘religious world,’ which has hated with a still fiercer hatred, and exposed to a yet deadlier martyrdom, some of its greatest prophets and teachers. Not a few of the great and holy men enumerated in the next note fell … (1 comments)

prayer: COMPOSEDLY SUFFERED LOSS AND HARDSHIPS - 03/06/17 06:24 AM
COMPOSEDLY SUFFERED LOSS AND HARDSHIPS
PHILIPPIANS 4:7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
MATTHEW HENRY COMMENTARY Let their enemies perceive how moderate they were as to outward things, and how composedly they suffered loss and hardships. The day of judgment will soon arrive, with full redemption to believers, and destruction to ungodly men. There is a care of diligence which is our duty, and agrees with a wise forecast and due concern; but there is a care of fear and distrust, which is sin and folly, and only perplexes and … (0 comments)

Lord, in the name of Jesus, the name above every other name, we apply the blood, the sprinkling of the blood of Jesus over everything, everyone, everywhere, all that concerns our President-elect Donald J. Trump and his family including the inauguration. Thank you Lord that you command your angels concerning them to guard them in all of their ways. Hide them, protect them and keep them safe and wrap them in songs of deliverance. We bless them in every way in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth for the enemy cannot curse who God has blessed. Amen

prayer: ONE OF THE GREATEST GIFTS WE CAN GIVE - 07/08/15 10:26 PM
One of the greatest gifts we can give is to lift a person in prayer. And there is no more powerful way to do this than to speak Scripture on his or her behalf.
Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
