Word of the week – 11.01.2021

“Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”

Mark 11:24

If there is something I am learning and yearning to do more and more – is pray. Last year, I realized that I pray not only because I want to, but because I know that God can answer my prayers – so I pray because I believe in the person that I am praying to. So you can imagine how excited I was when I came across this verse.

When my nephew started praying, there is something that caught my attention – and that is how he prayed about and for everything! He took his time to pray for the people and things he encountered during the day and asked for God’s blessings upon them. I remember how impressed I was, not only was it an innocent prayer – but it was a powerful one! So I learnt and picked something from him – to pray about everything!

Prayer is such a beautiful thing, and it is so amazing when we realize that we have direct access to the creator of heaven and earth, and when we pray He listens! But there is so much joy when we understand that we pray because we believe – and this means that we pray because we know He has the ability and power to answer our prayers! I love how when I pray about certain things in faith – the humility that takes over when God answers those prayers, He meets my belief and faith in Him!

This week as you continue working on your goals for the year and setting the tone for 2021 – present them to God and believe that He will help you accomplish them – for His glory.

Dear God,

As we start this year and the week as well, be with us and reveal to us the power that you have in answering our prayers. It is such an honor not only to pray, but to believe in the person we are praying to – and that is you O God. Work in us, for your glory – show us the power that our prayers have, and the importance of believing in you. Bless our year O Lord, and lead us in the path that you want us to follow. Bless our week O God – in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Have a blessed week!

This is something I always say and strongly believe in, but it was a lesson for me in August. Sometimes in life we need people around us to pray for us, to cover us in prayer, to send us all those verses, sermons. And sometimes we need people to pray, yes

“Take that risk” – that’s a phrase we hear all the time. But this got me thinking as Christians we are meant to walk in faith, and not take risks.   A risk can be described as “uncertainty about the effects of an act with respect to something that humans value”

Does our life reflect our faith?

I remember one of the things I used to ask my mum a lot growing up is why do people who are saved always say “my name is so and so I’m saved, and I love Jesus”, why wouldn’t they let their character or how they treat people show that they
