Yesterday I was going through some of my favourite blogs and came across a beautiful post by Pearl from the blog named “Be thus minded…”.It’s a very thoughtful and lovely blog that I have blogrolled recently.
With all the hoo ha about “The Prayer of Jabez” which has been pushed commercially in the modern Church today and has become pretty much a mantra for success through prayer, her post about prayer in faith is a refreshing change. If you don’t know about “The Prayer of Jabez” see HERE.
In Pearl’s post she had made a nifty little table to outline the difference in experience prayer and faith prayer. It’s a must see and may even change the way you pray. I know that it has certainly challenged me to be me thoughtful in how I pray…
If I understand Scripture correctly, we have been given everything necessary for life and godliness through the knowledge of Him (2 Peter 1:3). Do we believe this Scripture, or don’t we? If I have everything necessary for life and godliness through the knowledge (or indwelling) of Christ, do I still lack power, peace, patience? Am I complete in Christ as Colossians 2:9-10 says, or am I still incomplete, separate from Christ, without hope in the world (Ephesians 2:12)? [go HERE to read her post and see if it challenges you]
