Matthew 6:6-15

But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him. After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

PLEASE JOIN ME IN PRAYER AND PRAISE FOR THE FOLLOWING:

When God Doesn't Hear
"Behold, the LORD's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear." (Isaiah 59:1-2)

People often complain that God doesn't hear their prayers, especially when God does not respond in the way they would like. But He can hear, all right! "He that planted the ear, shall he not hear?" He even hears our thoughts. "Thou knowest . . . my thought afar off" (Psalm 94:9; 139:2).

It is not that God cannot hear, but it just may be that we have not met the conditions for answered prayer, so that He will hear. Probably the most important of these conditions is obedience to His Word. "If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, " said Jesus, "ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you" (John 15:7). But, "if I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me" (Psalm 66:18). "Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts" (James 4:3).

There are other conditions, of course. "Let him ask in faith, nothing wavering" (James 1:6). "Whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do," said Jesus (John 14:13). "If we ask any thing according to his will . . . we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him" (1 John 5:14-15).

Even if we do meet all the conditions, however, He may not answer immediately, or in the way we prefer, and He might even answer no. After all, He knows better than we just what is best for us, and He will see that "all things work together for good" for us, if we truly "love God" (Romans 8:28).

But, first of all, we need to check our lives in relation to His Word. Then, "if our heart condemn us not . . . whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments" (1 John 3:21-22).

  • Please pray for my husband:

    This past Christmas Eve we were told he has stage 4 of a rare lung cancer called Broncioalavara or BAC that mimics on pneunomia. He also has a heart that's working at 47% with a pacemaker/ defibrillator an abdominal aorta that is at 4.7 mm and was about to have that fixed before the Cancer diagnosis. He's had three chemotherapy treatments there no cure they are just trying to keep out of the hospital. This chemo was a week ago Friday and he was so weak and short of breath on the advice of our primary dr I took him to the ER, diagnosis, a touch of pneumonia he stayed overnight and received bags of antibiotics and was sen home Sat morning. He is so week that even with liquid oxygen at 4mm his oxygen saturation drops below 90 with the slightest activity, only 2-14% of the population will get this type of Cancer. We now considering stopping chemo and taking quality of life over quantity so he feels well enough to enjoy his final days without being sick, weak and unable to even dress himself. They gave him 3-6 months. We have had three months of him being sick for more than 2 weeks after treatment, start to feel better then it's time for another treatment and being sick again. He is scheduled for a PET Scan on Wednesday. We will do some hard thinking after that. I have deep faith, many people are praying for him but it breaks my heart to see him struggling to take a shower and be unable to walk from room to room without having breathing difficulty. Thank you for letting me vent and for your prayers.

  • Please pray for our brother in Christ David Day, who has been diagnosed with Myeloma.

    The final diagnostic: Multiple Myeloma (cancer of the bone marrow, or "blood factory" for the red and white blood cells).

    Our oncologist made it clear that there is no cure for this type of cancer. The chemotherapy is attempting to slow down the degeneration but it is not a cure. In the case of David, an additional genetic test reveals that he has the 2 types of genetic markers indicating an aggressive cancer with the probability of not reacting as well as other people from the same cancer receiving chemotherapy.

    Prognostic: without chemotherapy David would have 6 months left to live-- with chemotherapy he may have 2-3 years: intensive chemotherapy for 4 months then an attempt to do stem cells transplant depending on how his body reacts. The chemotherapy will attempt to provide a better quality of life for the next 2 years. For the past 2 weeks, the oncologist has put David on an heavy dose of steroids (synthetic adrenalin) which gives him more energy before he starts the intensive chemotherapy which will start tomorrow (September 8th, 2014).

    A lot of people are praying for David as well as his wife Suzanne. We ask that all our Prayer Partners across the world, join in Praising God for the completion and total cure of this disease!

  • Hi:

    I am asking to pray for a little 6 year old girl “Emily”, Emily is in Hamilton McMaster Children’s Hospital. She went into emergency last Sunday with what was thought to be a Bladder Infection. After observation and other tests Emily had a tumour on her Uterus removed last week. She lost most of her uterus in the process and the mass was malignant. Emily starts Chemo this coming week. Please pray for God’s grace and healing for Emily. My heart aches for her she is too young to have to endure this. (Emily is my sister-in-law’s sister’s grand daughter.)

    Thank you so much.

    Hugs…Marilyn
