Our House Of Prayer

It’s important to have the Holy Spirit with us when we’re saved, then we need the Spirit in us to cleanse our temple. Romans 8:26-27 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which […]

5 Goals to Set & Accomplish This Year

Happy New Year

I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Phil 3:14

One thing about setting goals is to set them according to God’s will and His will is for us to have a closer relationship with him. You can say that you want to draw closer to God. You then have to put yourself into a position where you want to learn and you want to know about God. There are 24 hours in a day. In a year there are 8,760 hours. If you say you only have five minutes to spend with the Lord and you are doing what you want the rest of the day – how do you expect to draw closer to God. If you want to draw closer to the Lord, you are going to spend more than five minutes a day with the Lord. You will spend more than that reading your bible and praying. You will spend more than that getting down and asking God to search out your heart and to help you be what he wants you to be.

  • Draw closer to God
  • Have a consistent, effective prayer life
  • Read and study God’s word every day
  • Carrying a soul burden for the lost
  • Being faithful to the house of God

The Importance of Fasting and Prayer

“And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be a day of atonement: it shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD. And ye shall do no work in that same day: for it is a day of atonement, to make an atonement for you before the LORD your God. For whatsoever soul it be that shall not be afflicted in that same day, he shall be cut off from among his people. And whatsoever soul it be that doeth any work in that same day, the same soul will I destroy from among his people. Ye shall do no manner of work: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations in all your dwellings. It shall be unto you a sabbath of rest, and ye shall afflict your souls: in the ninth day of the month at even, from even unto even, shall ye celebrate your sabbath.” Leviticus 23:26-32

In this scripture, the word “afflict” means to fast. In the Old Testament, there was one day that the children of Israel were supposed to fast. It was The Day of Atonement. The reason for The Day of Atonement was because God wanted the people to be humble. Fasting means you go without food. But the fast that God asked for on The Day of Atonement was not just to be without food. They were to be seeking God and drawing closer to him. God is the only one who can answer prayer.
