Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.
To be bold before God is not to strut about with pride, but to know the "Great I AM who I AM and what I AM and I will be what I will be" [Is 3:14 Amp Bible], as our Father and to know He listens to us and answers.
We need to hold our loved ones up to the Throne of God! It's important that our prayers are positive not negative, we must pray the word of God. For example:
Holy Father, Thank you for keeping your hands upon my grandchildren, and bringing them to the place where they'll accept you as their savior. Please continue the work you have begun [Phil 1:6]. Place a hedge of thorns around them [Job 9:10], to keep the enemy away on the one side while piercing conviction into their souls on the other side. Touch their eyes dropping the scales [Acts 9:18], that they will see you in all your truth, seeing their need for a savior. Open their ears that they will hear Your truth and hear you calling unto them as you did to Adam. Send someone to them with your anointed words to pierce their hearts.
I come against the spirit of rebellion, according to the Word of God I have the power and authority over you [Lk 10:19]. Therefore, I bind you leaving you powerless, and I loose your hold upon my seed [Matt 10:10]. Leave my Grandchildren alone in Jesus name! Abba Father, I apply the Blood of Jesus over my seed and this entire situation [Ex 12:22-23]. Your Word says my seed will be set free [Prov 11:21], thank you and I give you all the praise and glory in Jesus name amen [Phil 4:6].
There is no praying the problem, only the Word of God, spoken with boldness knowing God hears. Remember to thank and praise Him, for He is worthy of our praise.
Read Luke 10:19
Power in the Greek:
exousia = Freedom of action, right to act, used of God, authority, right of disposal [judgment]
dunamis = Ability, might, of that which manifests God's "power", mighty work, miracles.
According to Acts 1:8 when we are baptized in the Holy Ghost, we receive power. Receiving power and having the authority to use it are not given at the same time. To walk in power depends on the degree the Holy Ghost presence, power and grace are working in our lives. We must purpose in our heart to follow the leading of the Holy Ghost.
When we feel the sting of conviction piercing our soul, do we immediately approach the throne of God in repentance? When we feel the nudge to correct something we've done or said, do we make it right or so we let it slide? God will not give the authority to one He cannot trust.
My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.
Sheep are the mature ones; lambs do not yet know the voice of the shepherd. As we lean upon Him and follow Him completely, His voice will become very distinct in our ears.
But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitiest the praises of Israel. God is in the praises of His people; the power of God is in our praises!
After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil; for thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.
Scripture tells us to offer praises before and during the battle. In the Old Testament the singers and instrumentalists went before the army. The purpose being the same then as it is today. As we praise and worship the Master, we're saying "Heavenly Father, you are my God, and I will follow you anywhere you lead me".
Our flesh is being told to be quiet and not fear that God is here! The enemy of our soul is being told, "Get lost, my GOD IS HERE!"
Praise is a love song to the Lord. Our soul comes under submission to the Spirit of God, when we submerge ourselves in praise and worship. Praise is also a war cry to Satan's army!
And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed singers unto the LORD, and that should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army, and to say, Praise the LORD; for his mercy endureth for ever And when they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten [self-slaughtered].
1 Peter 2:9
But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a dedicated nation [God's] own purchased, special people that you may set forth the wonderful deeds and display the virtues and perfections of Him who called you out of darkness into light.
1 Cor 14:15
What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also.
1 Chr 16:29
Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come before him: worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.
I believe the offering the scriptures are speaking of is the sacrifice of praise. We must praise God, even when we "don't feel like it". We are to make a living sacrifice of ourselves unto the Lord. Committing entire being to serving and following Him. Praise and worship are a vital part of warfare and virtually ignored by the majority of churches. As we enter God's courts with praise, our entire being draws upon His presence taking us into a higher dimension.
Praise is what we offer Him in song and dance; we are thanking Him for what He does for us. Worship is acknowledging who He is and bowing to Him, and drinking in His precious spirit; this is deep calling unto deep [Ps 42].
There are times to be completely quiet, to drink in His presence; we need this infilling every day.
Love... the Greek word:
agapao = To love [in a social or moral sense] to be loved.
agape = Love, affection or benevolence; a love feast: [feast of] charity, dear, love. a judgment/deliberate love.
agapetos = Beloved [dearly, well] dear.
phileo = to be a friend to; have affection for, personal attachment, as a matter of sentiment or feeling; agapao is wider chiefly of the heart; hileo is of the head, to kiss [as a mark of tenderness].
philotheos = Fond of God, pious: lover of God!
philoxenia = Love of strangers.
Therefore love the stranger and sojourner, for you were strangers and sojourners in the land.
Contribute to the needs of Godís people [sharing in the necessities of the saints]; pursue the practice of hospitality
Do not forget or neglect or refuse to extend hospitality to strangers [in the brotherhood-being friendly cordial, and gracious, sharing the comforts of your home and doing your part generously] for through it some have entertained angels without knowing it.
