In all prayer…in all things….revere the Lord.
Time after time I see people, men and women alike, who think that everything they have, or
anything they do well, has everything to do with them, instead of lifting their heads and
giving thanks to the One who makes it all possible.
It is truly a miracle that you are even here on this earth, and without the blessings of God,
you would not even exist. People have either forgotten that, or never knew it in the first
place. When you pray, remember to thank the One who has made it all possible. It is not
coincidense, or by luck that you are here…it is only by the grace of God that we even exist.
We have all seen baseball players who have just hit a home run who look up and point to the
sky. They are giving the glory to the one who deserves it, and it warms my heart every time I
Always revere the Lord in your prayers, and he will revere you in return.
One of my favorite hymns states, “What a privilege to carry, everything to God in prayer”.
That one actually makes me cry…as does many of the old hymns. The point here is, prayer IS
a privilege…and yet, many people don’t use that privilege to its capacity. That is where the
“Pray Without Ceasing” comes in. It is there for you…any time of the day or night.
Picturing prayer is really a simple concept, but it is POWERFUL!
When you bow your head to say your prayers, I encourage you to picture in your mind a
positive image of what you’re praying about. If you are praying for someone who is going in
for an operation for example, as you pray, picture them in full health. Picture them the vibrant
and fun loving person that you’ve always known.
In another example, if you are praying for employment, picture yourself already having the
job that you are praying for. See yourself going off to work in the morning, performing your
duties as if you already have the job. Be joyful in your prayers. This is a time to be positive
and focused…and with joy in your heart!
It says in Psalms 100:
1 Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.
2 Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.
3 Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we
are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto
him, and bless his name.
5 For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
Also in Psalms, it talks more about singing. Actually, many of the Psalms tell us of singing
joyfully unto the Lord.
Psalms 66:1 Make a joyful noise unto God, all ye lands:
2 Sing forth the honour of his name: make his praise glorious.
Singing God’s praises is the one way that I have found that my mind does not wander into
other realms. I am focused on praising the Lord in the song I am singing. I have included
some of these songs in this package. They are my favorite hymns, and are an absolute joy to
listen to, and sing along with. It doesn’t even matter if you can’t carry a tune in a bucket,
because you are singing your praises to the Lord…and He LOVES your voice…he DID make it
There are many other instances in which we can use the power of prayer in a powerful and
Are you looking for a better relationship with God? Picture yourself speaking directly to God,
like he is in the chair next to you. This is kind of difficult when you first start out, but the
more you do it, the easier it gets.
Are you looking for healing? Whether you are looking for physical, or mental healing, or even
a healing from financial woes, these can all be done with a positive image in your mind. You
do not have to be sullen, or sad to ask God about these things. Lift him up in joy, present the
image to God through your thoughts. Picture yourself as well, before the affliction took hold
of you. Picture yourself as a financially well person. It goes a LONG way in prayer. Just try
this…and you will notice the changes in your thought patterns, and you will start becoming a
more positive, focused person who is giving it to God!
We all know someone in our lives that need prayer, perhaps several. My proposal to you is
that you share this with your friends who are praying for the same thing. A prayer chain with
positive images is mighty powerful!
