My brothers and sisters, the Good News Prayer Group and other intercessors around the world are currently going through an exercise of 24hour global chain prayer. the theme for this prayer chain is 'A closer walk with Jesus.' I don't know about you but I am excited.....very excited because I have purposed, by His grace, not to be the same when we complete this exercise. I have been reflecting on the topic and thought I should share them with you. 2 Corinthians 3:18 states that we will go from glory to glory. My prayer is that every one of us is closer to Jesus than when we started. How can we get closer to Jesus? Think about the following: NOT JUST PRAYING BUT ACTING OR LIVING OUT WHAT WE PRAY My prayer for us is that we live out our prayers. Sometimes, we spend so much time praying but our actions don't speak Christ. Can people say of us that' who we are speaks so loudly of us that they cannot hear what we say?' Can people trust our prayers because our lives are a testimony of lives transformed by Christ? Is Jesus in the inside, working on the outside? Does our Character, our speech, our action make Christ proud? It is good to remember that prayer is not only about talking to God but listening to Him. Jesus says in John 10:11-16 “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep. ... 14 I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own. 15 As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep. 16 And other sheep I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they will hear My voice; and there will be one flock and one shepherd. May we also take time to know His voice, listen to His voice and obey His voice. This can only be done by spending time with Jesus .....abiding in Him and He in us...

What a beautiful, on time Word. I also realize more and more the importance of "Listening" for the voice of God. We pray, and pray, and at times, forget to just simply listen. I need God to direct me in a few area of my life. It's so easy to get caught up in the blessings of God, and forget the one who blesses. I'm committed more than ever to Pray, Listen and act on God's word, because without Him, I can do nothing. We are all lost souls without the Lord on our side. Communication is the key to a successful life in Christ. "In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct "our" paths. "As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. Thanks Marionne, and Good New prayer Group,for allowing me to be apart of this awesome task of "prayer". PUSH-Pray Until Something Happens. I believe something is happening....even now!
