How Can We Pray For You? April 12, 2019


Recently I have had several kind believers come to me in meetings and ask, “What can we pray for you and your family specifically?” Nothing could be more encouraging! Such a question reveals that the people are not simply saying they will pray, but that they plan to pray – and pray specifically.

The Lord Jesus said, “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you” (Matthew 7:7). Each verb grows more intense. Each command teaches us something about effective prayer…

  • Ask: pray definite prayers.
  • Seek: pray expectant prayers.
  • Knock: pray persistent prayers.

The thing for which I am praying right now is for souls to be saved. Many of you subscribe to our posts and keep up with the resources that we offer. Over the last couple of weeks I have posted fewer articles due to a more intense travel schedule. This is a heavy season for meetings. If I could ask you to do one thing for us at this time it would be to pray with us that God would be pleased to use us.

We are approaching a number of great gospel efforts through the God Bless America Rally and the WVGrads Baccalaureate service, along with our regular weekly meetings. Thank you for being one of our praying friends and for praying specifically. Please keep asking, seeking, and knocking!

Along with this prayer principle Christ gave us His personal promise, “For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened” (Matthew 7:8).

I want to be one of the “every one.” Send us your prayer requests anytime and we will be honored to join with you in prayer as well. How can we pray for you?

The ruins of the Castle of the Servant in Jordan. The historian Josephus wrote that the dynasty of Tobiah built a castle on the east side of the Jordan River, in Ammon. He specifically wrote in the Antiquities of the Jews about the carved "beasts of gigantic size" visible here on the left corner of the structure. The beasts on the right side are not as well-preserved. The structure dates to the centuries after Nehemiah, however it shows the power and prestige of this family of "servants."

The Mountain of the House, also known as the Temple Mount, with the Mount of Olives in the background.
Some of the steps in the foreground date from the Second Temple period, and would have been the steps Jesus ascended. Archeologists have uncovered around 300 baptismal pools along the steps leading up to the Temple. They would be convenient for baptizing 3,000 people!
The Hebrew word ruakh can mean either spirit, wind, or breath. The Breath of God, the Spirit of God, and the Wind of God are all understood to be cognates.
