God has Placed on My Heart a Passion

LISTEN/READ

God has placed a passion and a vision on my heart to reach people who don't feel that God loves them through the internet. Perhaps they think that their lives could never amount to anything. He wants me to somehow convince you who are stuck in a pit or feel like you're sinking in despair that this is not God's plan for your life.

If you open your heart and your ears to God, He will lift you out of that place. He will set you on a solid footing and show you a path that He has for your life, a path that His Holy Spirit will empower. It’s a path through which He will be glorified, and people who are suffering and struggling in sin because of you and your testimony of Christ will be set free.

There should be no other plan or pathway that we desire for our futures as the people of God to find that pathway.

It's time to pray.

If You Need Renewed Strength

LISTEN/READ

Psalm 56:3–4: "Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in you. In God, I will praise his word. In God, I have put my trust. I will not fear. What can flesh do to me?"

The psalmist David once found himself surrounded by enemies hostile towards all that he'd held dear and believed. I'm sure that he felt the threats of forces surrounding him that wanted to overpower both the testimony of God and his people.

David believed in God. Though finding himself in a terrible place, he still believed that God's promises to him could be trusted. The story goes on to tell us that once he began to pray, his fears were abated, and victory began to be his one more time.

If you need renewed strength today, remember, it's time to pray.

Answer The Call

LISTEN/READ

The good news today is that God is calling us as His people into something that He has conceived for each of us to do in this generation. He has set a path before us. It's a path of strength. It's a path of stability. It's a path that carries a brand new song with it, a song of confidence in God.

David, the king, spoke about this song, and he said it's a song that people will see and begin to fear and begin to trust in God. And this generation surely needs to see that song again. So many people are losing confidence. What an opportunity we have to share the good news of Jesus Christ.

Peter, the apostle, said to be ready to give an answer for those who will be asking us in the coming days for a reason for the hope that is in us. It's time to rise and answer the call and be a ready witness to a lost generation looking for answers.

It's time to pray.

You Have a Friend Request

LISTEN/READ

In 2 Corinthians 7:5, Paul says: "For indeed, when we came to Macedonia, our bodies had no rest, but we were troubled on every side. Outside were conflicts. Inside were fears. Nevertheless, God who comforts the downcast comforted us by the coming of Titus."

Now, just as the Apostle Paul once was, we too can become afraid because of the conflicts around us. We sometimes wonder how God can give us peace with what we're now facing daily. Now, in Paul's case, he opened his heart to the encouragement of a friend. So let me be your friend from God today.

Let me tell you that God will be your protector, He will be your comfort, and He will be the one who gives you all the provision you need to get through. He has promised never to leave or never forsake you.

It's time to pray.

He Won't Turn You Away

LISTEN/READ

Jesus Himself said that He would not cast away anyone who comes to Him. In other words, He won't turn you away.He'll never look you in the eye and say “No” when you turn to Him and pray.

 

Just say, "Lord, save me, help me. Lord, keep me, help me with my present struggles. Help me, God, with the things that I will have to go through tomorrow and help me to have a perspective on life that takes my mind out of my present struggles and into that which is eternal."

 

Ask God to give you an eternal perspective so that your troubles and trials of this season won’t swallow you up. When you do, God promises, "I will open your eyes. I'll give you an anointing. You'll be able to see a way through. In whatever season of life you might be in, I promise that I'll be with you."

 

Remember, my brother, my sister, it's time to pray.

God Says He is Going to be With Us

LISTEN/READ

There are so many people in battles today. Some fight mental battles; others fight in their family. Others are fighting battles where they can't find meaning in their lives or don't see any purpose in their future.

 

We fight on every conceivable level, but God says that He's going to be with us. He wants you and me to look beyond our battles. We trust in Him for our salvation, and our life is now eternal and secure in His hands.

 

God is preparing an eternal place for us that cannot be triumphed over. The security that God will give us today will carry us through the struggles that you and I will have to face tomorrow, struggles that we're not even aware of yet. Ultimately, we will dwell with God where He is forever. Let that be your comfort today.

 

You can find comfort in the Word ofGod. While you're reading the Word of God, remember with me today that it's always time to pray.

It's Time to Tell

LISTEN/READ

In Psalm 26:6-7, King David says these wonderful words: "I will wash my hands in innocence, so will I go about Your altar, O Lord, that I may proclaim with the voice of thanksgiving and tell of all your wondrous works."

 

It's so important to approach God with a desire to have clean hands and a pure heart. The scripture warns us that if you and I give place to doing wrong in our hearts, that our prayers will be hindered. Not only will our prayers suffer, but also the testimony of God through our life.

 

On the contrary, the pure in heart will see God. They will see Him every day. They will see Him doing powerful things in their lives that are too good to keep to ourselves. That's why David says, "That I may proclaim with the voice of thanksgiving and tell of your wondrous works."

 

Remember, my brother, my sister, it's time to pray.

It's What Jesus Says That Matters

LISTEN/READ

Matthew 10:38–39: “And he who does not take his cross andfollow after me is not worthy of me. He who finds his life will lose it, and hewho loses his life for my sake will find it.”

 

It's about time somebody said it.Self-seeking Christianity is, in fact, most times not Christianity at all.Christ came to be given for others and to save those who are lost. He calls usto engage in and follow this passion of His heart.

 

To use the cross for the solepursuit of self is no different than the Roman soldiers gambling at the foot ofthe cross for His clothing. Go ahead and debate me if you will, but ultimatelyJesus says that continuous self-seeking is not worthy of Him.

 

Remember my brother, my sister, it'stime to pray.

God Always Calls Us to Something Good

LISTEN/READ

I want to remind you today that God always calls us to something good. He never calls us to something evil. God doesn't call people into places where we are going to drown. He calls us out of places that are going to drown us.

 

Jesus reaches out to us in our storms, and He holds us. He encourages us, and He calms our storms. No matter how many mistakes we make, remember just how much Jesus loves us and His kindness. Don't hesitate to take a step of faith because you're afraid to disappoint God or you feel you'll be disappointed. Ask God today to give you the courage to get up and follow Christ.

 

People from 211 countries right now are doing that very thing. They're asking for the courage to make a difference at itstimetopray.org every Tuesday night, 7:00 PM Eastern time.

The Grace to Not Resist

LISTEN/READ

Scripture says, "In the beginning, darkness was on the face of the deep."It says that God spoke, and the Spirit of God moved in unison. Life, light, and boundaries came. When God spoke, there was nothing in darkness that could resist His voice. Nature and the universe itself couldn't resist the voice ofGod.

 

However, when God created mankind in His image, He knew that He'd created something that could resist His voice.That's why we ultimately needed redemption on a cross.

 

I am praying today that God would give you and me the grace not to resist the Lord and instead allow His voice togo into the darkened places. I'm praying that the voice of God would go to very place of imprisonment, everywhere where hopelessness wants to abound.Friends, ask the Holy Spirit to move into every dark place in your life. You won't be sorry that you did.

 

Remember, it's time to pray.

Until That Day, Pray.

LISTEN/READ

Psalm 1:19, beginning at verse 81, says: “My soul faints for Your salvation,But I hope in Your word. My eyes fail from searching Your word, Saying, ‘When will You comfort me?’ For I have become like a wineskin in the smoke, Yet I do not forget Your statutes.”

 

Today, I want you to know that you're not the only one who feels the way you do. Many others are in the same struggle, and many have gone through it before you. God never forsook them, andHe will never forsake you. He will not allow this test to overwhelm you. He will clear the pathway that you can't see right now and call you to follow Him to victory there.

 

Until that day comes, pray. Pray like you haven't before, pray with an honest heart, let your prayer become a cry. God loves you. I want you to know that today.

 

Remember my brother, my sister, it's time to pray.

Prayer

LISTEN/READ

The Lord's put it on my heart today to pray for those listening who might be discouraged because of their circumstances.

 

Father, in Jesus' name, God, I just lift the men and women, my brothers and sisters that are listening and may be are losing heart because of family situations or even the situation in their country or their sphere of influence, whatever it is. God, I just lift them before you.

 

Lord, you are the Giver and theAuthor of life. You are the one who promises an abiding joy, and I do pray,God, for everyone who's listening that we would all open our hearts to the strength that you alone are able to give us in our times of discouragement.Lift the heavy spirit from those that are listening to this prayer today and let it be done in a way that brings glory to your name. Thank you, God, for this incredible privilege of praying for my friends in Jesus' name.

 

It’s time to pray.

A Pathway of Strength

LISTEN/READ

Psalm 119, beginning at verse 59, says: “I thought about my ways and turned my feet to your testimonies. I made haste and did not delay to keep your commandments. The cords of the wicked have bound me, but I have not forgotten your law. At midnight I will rise to give thanks to you because of your righteous judgments.”

 

At this midnight hour, no matter how difficult life has become and how weak it is that you might feel, you must getup and get back to God. He is not only a protection for you today, but He's gota purpose for your future.

 

Get back into fellowship with other believers and get back to the place of worship. Do it today, don't put it off any longer. Let His mercy pick you up now and return you to a pathway of strength.

 

Remember my brother and my sister, it's time to pray.

Trust Him in the Storms

LISTEN/READ

When we step out in faith and falter and lose our confidence, as many of us do in our walk in Christ, God doesn't cast us away in our time of difficulty. Even if you fall and fail God, get up and continue to take steps toward the voice of God. When you falter, or if you falter, Jesus will be there to pick you up again, and He will go back with you into your storm, into that place where you thought you were going to drown and die.

 

Today, I challenge you to trust Him in your present storm. Ask the Lord to give you the courage to get up and start moving towards the sound of God's voice.

 

I encourage you to join us in prayer every Tuesday at 7:00 PM EST at itstimetopray.org. People from 211 countries are joining us, and we believe God will get us through this difficult time.

 

Remember, it's time to pray.

God Has a Calling on Your Life

LISTEN/READ

Today, I want to remind you that God has a calling on your life, despite where you are. The calling on your life is not only to get out of where you are but it's to bring you into something thatGod has for you that will affect everything around you. It will affect your town, family, city, society, and realistically, there's no limit to what God can do through you.

 

God touched Billy Graham, a young man who had a lot of questions about the Word of God. God answered the deepest questions of his heart. Billy decided to take up the calling of God that was on his life, and of course, the rest is history. He has preached to more people in his lifetime than perhaps anybody else throughout history.

 

We all have to make this choice. We can accept it, or we can refuse it. My question to you today is will you answer the call that God has already placed upon your life?

 

To find it, we have to pray.

Take Hold of God's Promises

LISTEN/READ

Many people make promises to God, and they're constantly breaking their promises. They become weary in making these promises that they know they can't keep, and it's just so hopeless.People are hanging by a thread because they're just so weak.

 

Human effort to be godly must look so ridiculous in the sight of God. He knows it's not possible, but humanly speaking, we don't. We keep making promises and keep getting more and more discouraged, then coming back into His presence and confessing our sins. We try to do better, but the whole system of you and I making promises to God was doomed to fail.

 

That's why we needed Jesus Christ to come and die on a cross for our sins. We can't live by making promises to God.We now live by God's promises to us. He promises to be God to us. He promises to be God in us and to be our strength and our life. Take hold of His promises today and begin to believe them. He loves you.

 

It's time to pray.

We Are Promised the Victory

LISTEN/READ

2 Timothy 2:3 says, "You therefore must endure hardship asa good soldier of Jesus Christ. No one engaged in warfare entangles him self with the affairs of this life that he may please him who enlisted him as a soldier. And also, if anyone competes in athletics, he's not crowned unless he competes according to the rules."

 

Now, most today who study the elements of a victorious army would agree that a fighting force that is too long unchallenged can lose its focus. It can begin to forget its purpose, become diverted, and quickly be brought to surrender through opposition.

 

There is a promise of great victory and reward if we will again consider God's intended purpose for us as His church in our time. Let's not back away from the challenge that's ahead of us.He promises us victory. Through Christ, we are more than conquerors.

 

It's time to pray.

Revival Means

LISTEN/READ

Psalm 119:35 says, “Make me walk in the path of your commandments, for I delight in it. Incline my heart to your testimonies and not to covetousness. Turn away my eyes from looking at worthless things and revive me in your way.”

 

The Psalmist here is praying for revival, a revival in his heart that will engage him again with the will of God for his life and will turn his heart and affections away from its continual focus on worthless things.

 

One day, everything you see with our natural eye will be gone. It will be dissolved except for the people that pass you and I by every day. Revival means returning to the work of God, and that work is that they might be saved.

 

Remember, my brother, my sister, it's time to pray.

God Takes Us In Our Nothingness

LISTEN/READ

Did you know today that God takes us in our nothingness? He takes us when we feel like our ability is so small compared to the need that's all around us.

 

I've often said that He can't use us if we still think we're something because He doesn't need something to do something. He needs nothing to do something. Think about it. He made everything out of nothing according to the Word of God. He speaks the Word, and things come into existence. That's just who God is, and that's what He can do. Will you trust the Lord to do mighty things throughout your life? Trust God so you can witness how He can use your life for His glory.

 

Join us every Tuesday at 7:00 PMEastern Time at itstimetopray.org. People from 211 countries gather together and pray and believe that God can do something miraculous in our nothingness.

 

It's time to pray.
