I LOVE this post Pastor Mark!! This is one of the best descriptions I've read on how to pray. You could write a book about this ;) Thank you for the powerful reminder to keep PUSHing! Someone asked here a few days ago how to have a more intimate, personal relationship with Jesus.... pray! Talk to Him all throughout the day. Like you said, it never bugs Him. (love the quote from Wiersbe!) Also, if you keep reading on Luke 18:1-8 talks about praying like the persistent widow who never stopped asking the unjust judge for protection. In this parable, she did drive the judge crazy, so he gave her what she asked for. How much more will a loving and holy Father give what is right to His children? That's how we pray too.... never give up, especially when we do not always get immediate results when we pray. TP family, how can we pray for you today? We want to wrap around you..... nothing is too great or too small for Jesus! ☁️🎺🔜

Prayers for my oldest daughter and her 5 children. She has separated from the childrens father (after being together for 13yrs. Unmarried) The father is abusive and the mother is neglectful. It's hard for me to even say this out loud. But the situation is very bad. I'm willing to help with the kids, but they won't let me even see the kids (February 9th it will be 2yrs. I've been banished) There's drugs and alcohol abuse in the home. I'm on disability and don't have the resources to go to court and fight for them. BUT I KNOW MY GOD IS BIGGER THAN ANY TRIAL I HAVE TO FACE. So I'm praying for GOD'S will to be done in this situation. PS: The kids ages are (12,9,7,5,19mo.)

Come and have your way LORD JESUS ❤️ FOR YOUR GLORY, in JESUS NAME,AMAN...

I have to say this to y'all. Every last one of you wonderful folks bless my life in ways I always believed impossible. Each and everyone. I cherish each of you. You are the answers to a lot of my prayers. All of you, Pastors included. Behind the scenes folks. And all the subscribers. Because of these answered prayers, i know God loves me. He gave His only begotten for me too, and He gave me all of you. Love in Christ Jesus.

Come quickly Lord. Praise God!!

Pastor Mark…thank you for throwing me this lifeline. For quite some time, I feel I’ve been drowning in the sea of life. Please know my love and devotion to our blessed Lord has never wavered but so many trials kept cracking me at every direction. Many days my prayers were mostly tears and very little words. Thank the Lord He knows our hearts:) Your message today has been so beneficial. All I can say is thank you ❣️❣️❣️

Excellent coverage and focus on prayer. It is such a good idea to give solid doctrinal review on some of these key elements.

And as my 97 year old precious mama always reminds us, ALWAYS end every prayer request with NOT MY WILL BUT YOURS BE DONE in Jesus’ name, I pray.

Thank you all for sharing this walk and journey of Faith as we LOOK UP!

Pastor Mark . I absolutely love this post. I’m always learning and growing in our Lord as each of the TP Pastors share the insights the Holy Spirit gives them. Thanks for the uplifting thoughts about prayer and how the Lord taught us to 🙏 pray. During my Bible Study Fellowship class of fourteen years: our prayers were based on Matthew 7:7-8. Ask, Seek, and Knock. I do pray the Lord’s Prayer every morning and nite and feel His Sweet Presence as I go to His Throne Room to acknowledge Him as King of Kings and Lord of Lord’s. He is in control of Heaven’s Kingdom and here on Earth. To God be the Glory! Amen 🙏. Be blessed.
