The Power of Prayer

Proverbs  15:29 says “ The Lord is far from the wicked, but he hears the prayers of the righteous.” James 5:16 says “Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed.  The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and wonderful results.”   Karen Clark Sheard is a true gift to the kingdom of God! He voice is not just a voice but an instrument created for the express purpose of playing beautiful music to her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, we all just have the honor of listening in!   Listen to the testimony of this beautiful, gifted handmaiden of God! 

 The bible says that the prayers of one person can put a thousand angels to flight but the prayer of two can put ten thousand angels to flight.  It is vital that we stop praying soulish selfish prayers like Lord give me the job, and Lord give me the car or the house.  It’s time we begin as Christians to pray for nations, it’s time we began to cover those who stand in the front on the battle grounds, like Karen, and all other Christian artists. They go before the world proclaiming the omnipotence, sovereignty and goodness of Jesus Christ with praise, and they pay a heavy price for it.  It’s time we rise and do what we are called to do, Pray for one another!  Be Blessed.  *** If you would like to experience Karen’s amazing gift I’ve listed some of her music for you to listen to! ***


What’s In Your Alabaster Box?

alabaster-jar-best.jpg Matthew 26:7, Mark 14:3, Luke 7:37 and John 11:13 each make reference to Mary and her alabaster jar. For years I identified with these accounts on the surface level of the infinite grace of God and how beautiful it was that Mary wept at his feet, never comprehending the breadth of the alabaster jar itself, until I got the revelation. In Mark 14:3-5 we see Mary with her alabaster jar which she breaks and pours the contents of oil/perfume on Jesus. We learn through the complaining of Judas that the contents of the alabaster jar was worth more than a years wages because it was made of pure spikenard. We like Mary come to Jesus with all that we have of value, ourselves. He then indwells us and becomes the costly oil. However notice that in order for the precious oil to be released the vessel had to be broken. There was no cap that screwed on, or a top that sprayed a fine mist, nor was there a stopper that could be removed so the jar could be preserved in pristine condition. That was the way the maker of the jar designed it. Continue reading ‘What’s In Your Alabaster Box?’

Husbands…Know Your Wives 101.

I think marriage is the toughest job you’ll ever love. I speak as one who knows from experience.
