What if You Prayed Adventurous, Courageous, Audacious Prayers?

By Leonard Davidson

One year for Christmas our family decided to implement a new idea. We had been discussing wanting to cut back that year—partially because in prior years we seemed to really go overboard. We were buying for the sake of buying. Honestly, it was more about us feeling good about what we did than thoughtful purchasing.

Then we read a devotional by Linda Mintle entitled “An Uncluttered Christmas,” and we decided to follow some of her thinking. We asked the adult children to make lists for themselves and ones for the young children. The list could include one couple gift and then individual gifts. We set dollar limits, which was really hard for my wife. The items listed had to follow three basic guidelines: a gift really desired, a needed item and a relatively educational gift.

It was fun watching the family sit and work on the lists. They asked questions of us (mostly about raising cost limits). They wrote, then thought a while, crossed out and wrote again. It was fun for my wife and me to compare what had been listed. Some detailed their lists, while other lists were more vague. My daughter-in-law, Jessica, wrote down the name of the couple gift, which store it was in, the description on the box and the bar code number. Guess how organized her home is.

Shopping was actually fun. We were a bit nervous on Christmas morning. The tree looked really bare compared to the previous year when the gifts were piled so high the tree was barely visible.

PRAYER POWER FOR THE WEEK OF 12/3/2012

This week pray adventurous, courageous, audacious prayers. Pray with expectancy knowing that He has promised to answer and give us what we ask according to His will. Be bold! Exercise your faith. Know that nothing is too hard for Him. The miracle of Christmas shows us the miraculous intervention of God on our behalf. Thank Him for it and take time to reflect, pray, believe and expect answers to what seems impossible. Remember those affected by natural disasters, loss of income, health and loved ones. Ask the Lord to give you opportunities to share His love and bless others, especially during this time. Pray for an outpouring of His Holy Spirit to bring repentance, revival, refreshing and reformation to our land and around the world. Remember Israel and continue to pray for it to fulfill God’s plan and purpose. Jer. 32:27; 1 John 5:14-15

To enrich your prayer life and learn how to strategically pray with power by using appropriate scriptures, we recommend the following sources by Apostle John Eckhardt: "Prayers that Rout Demons," "Prayers that Bring Healing," "Prayers that Release Heaven on Earth," and " Prayers that Break Curses."
