Praying for Miracles?

I have been away from Spiritual Sundays for a couple of weeks, and let me tell you ~ I have missed it soooo much!! Trying to fit in every single second with my girl before she leaves for college on Monday has been a HIGH PRIORITY :)

First let me share with you all this is the Miracle Makeover weekend @ Spiritual Sundays! Please go over here and leave a comment because each comment left will be worth $1.00 towards the next makeover by Design Gives Back!

When seeking the Lord about my post I got so excited to see how HE put it all together this week! We are in the middle of a series @ Church titled BOLD. Last weekend, the Bold was specifically "Bold Prayers."

Pastor Craig Groeschel shared this:

"What you Pray for Reflects what you believe about God"

ok, broken down it would mean this:

If you pray for yourself mostly, you believe God is here to serve YOU

If you pray for those around you.... family, friends, your church, your co-workers, etc. you believe God can serve only a small amount of people


Why don't we pray for:

"THE" Church
A Revival to be swept across our Nation
A Move of the Spirit in ALL Believers ~ everywhere

I am so guilty....guilty of those self-centered prayers. The prayers that span maybe 50 miles around me..... Forgive me Lord!

Please Understand! These prayers are not wrong, nor are they bad. But as Pastor Craig so eloquently shared this food for thought: When we pray those repetitive prayers like maybe this one...."traveling mercies" for the 25th time this month, or maybe it's as simple as "Please be with me today" we gotta know this.....

HE IS with US, HIS Protection is over us !! Do you wonder if God might ever say:

"Give ME something BIG, something other than life's normal everyday chain of events"

Release your Faith, Stand on HIS Word, and ask Boldly for Those Miracles to happen, The Healings to go forth, A Move of the Spirit on all Believers.....

Remember God watches over HIS Word to Perform it!

And now, Lord, listen to their threats. Lord, help us, your servants, to speak your word without fear. Show us your power to heal. Give proofs and make miracles happen by the power of Jesus, your holy servant." ACTS 4:29-30

This week The Miracle Makeover is for Charlie Grady. Charlie needs a Miracle, a Healing touch by the Great Physician. Won't you join me in praying for a Miracle for this precious young man and his family too.
Here is Kelee Katillac and the Grady family sharing about the Makeover: Thank you Charlotte and Ginger for allowing all of us to be a part of something so wonderful! Please remember to go here to leave a comment!

You won't want to miss this!

Have a blessed weekend My dear Friends
