- If you REALLY want to get God’s attention in prayer, it’s not by being eloquent or using big words, but by being honest and shooting straight with Him.
- The power of praying aloud is ELECTRIC!
- Prayer is not about poetry or posture, but about engaging the heart.
- When it comes to the “power of prayer,” the power is not in the person doing the praying, but in the One who hears the prayer.
- God’s not moved by the length of a prayer, but by your humility (Luke 18:9-14).
- Prayers, even short and informal, are VERY significant.
- There is no secret formula, no special phrases and no exact patterns you must follow to get God to hear you, just ask in Jesus’ name.
- Praying with my wife is incredible. It lets me see into the special places of her heart.
- I should never be too busy to pray. Just as much as I love to hear from my children, God loves to hear from me.
- There will are plenty of times when I don’t have service on my cell phone … BUT I will ALWAYS be connected to God through prayer… any time and any place … I have PERFECT reception and service.

What is considered a mistake to one person might not be to another, so I realize that it’s all relative. But what do you do when you feel like you’ve failed The Creator? The older I get, the more I realize that the gut feelings I sometimes get before making a decision can be the Holy Spirit trying to forewarn me from taking a wrong turn. It’s when I begin to rationalize my choices that I need to take a step back and determine if I am on the brink of a mistake. Rationalization isn’t confirmation. It usually means I’m about to do something I know is wrong, but I want to justify it to myself and others. When said decision turns out to be a bad mistake, I then have the shame of facing the Lord with my shabby apologies and repentance. (more…)
