There’s Tremendous Power in Sincere Faith-Based Prayer

How Often Do You Pray? Do You Walk in Faith?

“O Lord, our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens..” -Psa 8:1 (KJV)

Wow! Did you know that we as born-again, Bible-beleiving, real Christians have the power of the name that is above all names available when we pray? That’s awesome when you really think about it. However, today there are so many distractions and things that keep us busy and occupy out time that there is little time left to pray daily. Think about that … 

Does a too-busy lifestyle keep you from dedicated prayer?

The name of the Lord is above every name – Phil 2:9. And one day every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord – Phil 2:10.  No exceptions! 

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” -Phil 4:6-7 (NASB)

Today, we as Christians need to pray about everything – we without hesitation need to present our needs wants and desires to the Lord in prayer. We need to cultivate a praying spirit which will  automatically take us to the throne of grace and mercy in all situations and at all times. His word says we are to pray without ceasing (1 Th 5:17). Always keep in the attitude of prayer to our Heavenly Father. You see when we pray, we communicate with our Lord and express our needs and listen for His answer. Granted it may not come in the format we are asking, but He will answer.

Who’s doing this today? Are our Christian churches teaching about sincere dedicated prayer? Do they even teach on the power and authority we have in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ?

In the Bible, the power of prayer defeated enemies, healed the sick, raised the dead, and cast out demons. In fact, in Luke 10:19, the Lord says we have explicit power and authority over serpents and scorpions and over ALL the power of the enemy. This is huge and this is power from on high – the Lord has given this to us. The question is who knows this and then second, who appropriates and applies it in their lives?

The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous man runs into it and is safe.” -Prov 18:10 (ESV)

Friends, the power we have in prayer in the name of the Lord is so great that most have no idea it’s even there. Many times and with many Christians, our prayers are weak and lifeless. They are sometimes scripted in books, we just parrot and even in church. This should not be. We are to pray and talk to God all the time and in our own words. No constant lifeless repeating of words over and over and over – this is pointless – Matt 6:7. We don’t have to be eloquent in this, not even grammatically correct. Just pour out your heart to Him – take it to Him in times of need, and when you depressed, feeling low, sick, etc. Even in good times, spend time in prayer praising His name and thanking Him for what He has done and given you. He wants to hear from you.

Remember, do not worry about things and stuff, Do not fret or doubt, worry or fear and remember if you are in the Lord He will take care of you but you must be serious because the Lord does not play games about His name, power or authority. Re: Matt 6:25-33.

We must daily pray in the power and authority of the name of Jesus. We must not lose heart or feel He is not listening to us. He hears our every prayer. Walk in the authority and power of the name that is above all names – Jesus the Christ – and walk in victory. We must not fail in this. Times will get increasingly difficult and if you don’t believe in prayer and use it, you may have a very hard time as the days progress.

Pray in the name of Jesus Christ – believe in His name and power and authority. Walk in His strength giving Him all glory honor and praise.

“And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.” -Heb 11:25-32 (ESV)

Wake Up!! Shortages Across the Board Are Now Here

Editor’s Note: Please stay awake and aware of what’s happening around you and now especially, among many other potential calamities, the supply chain and shortage dilemma. Prices are increasing and grocery visits, I speak first hand, are getting more and more expensive. Do not sweep the advancing supply chain crisis under the rug or you may end up in a very difficult place.

Pay attention and stay informed!

“And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. 6- And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.” -Rev 6:5-6 (KJV)

You Better Wake Up, Because The Shortages Are Getting A Lot Worse

By Michael Snyder – Oct 28, 2021

A lot of people aren’t going to want to hear this.  There are a lot of people out there that just want to hear that the future is going to be filled with rainbows, lollipops and unicorns, but that isn’t the truth.  Months ago, I warned my readers that the global chip shortage wasn’t going to end any time soon and that it would deeply affect thousands of other industries, and that is precisely what is happening right now.  Industry after industry is deeply hurting, and a lot of executives are really starting to freak out.  Earlier this year, many among the blind optimists assured us that the chip shortage would be resolved by the end of 2021, but obviously that has not happened.  In fact, the corporate media is now telling us that it is getting even worse.  For example, the following comes from a Wall Street Journal article entitled “Global Chip Shortage ‘Is Far From Over’ as Wait Times Get Longer”

Wait times for chip deliveries have continued to climb above a healthy threshold of 9-12 weeks. Over the summer, the wait stretched to 19 weeks on average, according to Susquehanna Financial Group. But as of October, it has ballooned to 22 weeks. It is longer for the scarcest parts: 25 weeks for power-management components and 38 weeks for the microcontrollers that the auto industry needs, the firm said.

Those numbers are unlike anything that we have ever seen before.

And we are rapidly getting to a point where some wait times will start to be measured in years.  Manuel Schoenfeld placed an order for transmission chips in May 2021, and he is now being told that they will probably be delivered in May 2022

Manuel Schoenfeld placed an order in May for transmission chips for the utility-monitoring devices made by his New York-based firm PowerX. He was told the chips would arrive by summer, then fall, then winter and now doesn’t expect to get them until May 2022.

“This is far from over,” Mr. Schoenfeld said.

How bad does it have to get before people start waking up?

The entire global economic system is experiencing stunning breakdowns on a widespread basis, and yet a lot of people still assume that everything is going to work out just fine somehow.

Due to a lack of chips, new vehicle production has dropped precipitously and dealers around the nation have seen their inventories drop to alarmingly low levels.  As a result, demand for used vehicles has skyrocketed, and this has pushed used car prices to absolutely insane heights

The 2019 Honda Civic that kicked off a used-car auction earlier this month would have been nothing special before the pandemic. But as automotive dealer Brad Wimmer watched, the online bidding quickly became, to quote him, “bananas.”

As a new car, the Civic would have had a sticker price of around $21,000. But within seconds at the wholesale auction, the two-year-old model, with 4,000 miles, sold for $27,200.

If you have an old clunker that you don’t need anymore just sitting around, you may want to check what it is worth now.

We are witnessing a similar phenomenon with farm equipment.  A lack of chips has suppressed production, and used equipment is now in very high demand.

So just like we are seeing with used cars, many pieces of used farm equipment are now selling for much more than when they were brand new

Joel Everett said he was astounded when a lightly used 2009 John Deere tractor sold at his last auction in Strawberry Point, Iowa, for tens of thousands of dollars more than it had cost fresh off the production line more than a decade ago.

Bought new for $109,000, the tractor sold for $143,000 at auction, he said. It’s not an isolated incident, said Everett, who has run Joel’s Tractor and Auction since 1992. A lot of farm equipment, particularly used tractors, is selling for 30 percent to 50 percent more than it was two years ago at his auction house.

Food prices are shooting up at a very brisk pace as well.

According to Bloomberg, global food costs have jumped “by a third” over the past year…

The jump in global food prices to a decade high risks leading to even more expensive grocery bills, and the energy crisis is threatening to make things even worse.

Harvest setbacks, strong demand and supply chain disruptions have sent a United Nations index of food costs up by a third over the past year. The latest leg up last month came as prices for almost all types of foodstuffs gained, adding to inflationary headaches for consumers and central banks.

In my latest book, I have an entire chapter entitled “Hyperinflation and Shortages”, and in that chapter I specifically warned that this would happen.

In fact, in that chapter I specifically warned about the impact that the chip shortage would have on global food prices.

We knew in advance that this was coming, and now it is here.

As global food supplies get tighter and tighter, shortages are going to become more intense and prices are going to become increasingly painful.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem – Psa 122:6 (KJV)

Praises in the Psalms: Strength and Peace for Your Soul

Thy Word is a Lamp Unto My Feet and a Light Onto My Path

“Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.” -Psa 119:11 (KJV)

I absolutely love reading God’s word, especially the Psalms. They help to refocus my thoughts when things have gone nuts and they help me stabilize my faith in the Lord God Almighty.

Reading the Psalms is praising the Lord. It is so awesome to be caught up in worshiping the Lord through meditation on His word, His commandments, His testimonies, His statutes, His promises.

The world is going crazy now across all areas of our society, culture and nation and so we need an anchor to our faith and we need to continually praise the Lord through all difficulties, and situations we find ourselves in. And friends these kinds of things are increasing multi-fold [in the negative] it seems daily now. So when confused and frustrated and generally feeling down I turn to the Psalms for comfort and strength. I included just a few of my favorites below (I have so many). Please read and be edified and then glorify the Lord through your praise and meditation.

“May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in Your sight, Lord, my rock and my Redeemer.” -Psa 19:14 (NASB)

“May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in Your sight, Lord, my rock and my Redeemer.The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2- He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. 3- He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. 4- Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. …” -Psa 23:1-4 (ESV)

“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2- He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. 3- He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. …” -Psa 23:14 (KJV)

Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord! 2- O Lord, hear my voice! Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my pleas for mercy! 3- If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand? 4- But with you there is forgiveness, that you may be feared. 5- I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I hope; 6- my soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen for the morning, more than watchmen for the morning. 7-
O Israel, hope in the Lord! For with the Lord there is steadfast love, and with him is plentiful redemption. 8- And he will redeem Israel from all his iniquities..
” -Psa 130:1-8 (ESV)

And there are just so many others that if included here would be quite lengthy to read. So please, take time today and everyday to read at least one Psalms and perhaps one Proverbs. You will be surprised at the peace that passes understanding you will experience and the joy that will flood your soul.

P.S. Please ensure that you are prepared for the tough road ahead physically and spiritually. The last days, we are in right now, will be filled with many perils. Prepare in your heart, mind and soul and also for your family with adequate provisions. See verse below – a “prepper” (if you will) verse.

“A prudent person foresees danger and takes precautions. The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences.” -Prov 22:3 (NLT)
