5 Tips on How to Pray

God’s Little Known Guidelines of How to Pray to Get Your Prayers Answered The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much! If you accepted Jesus as your Savior, you are righteous. Therefore, your fervent prayers MUST work! So, why don’t some prayers get results? Imagine for a moment you’re at a baseball game. A player hits a double, but as he rounds 1st, he gets tackled. You’d scream “this is baseball, not  football! They’re using the wrong set of rules!” The Bible shows us many types of prayers, but each has its own rules and guidelines! I’ve heard prayers ending with “if it be Your will”. Would you be shocked to learn Jesus prayed “if it be your will” only once? It was in the Garden of Gethsemane, as he placed himself in God’s hands for our Salvation. He never used it before or after. What’s God’s Will? IT’S GOD’S WILL that we prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers – III Jn 2. Jesus said I have come that they may have life and that . . . more abundantly – John 10:10b. Great rule: When ending a prayer, use Jesus’ name! And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I WILL...

Buy This Apple Juice?

Purity: A Godly Principle in Apple Juice God’s Word – MALACHI 1:6-10 The Lord Almighty says . . . “A child honors his father. A servant respects his master. I am your father and master. So, why don’t you honor and respect me? You have despised my name! But you ask, ‘How have we ever despised your name?’ You have despised it by bringing unclean sacrifices to my altar. But you ask, ‘How have we defiled the sacrifices? You defile them by saying the altar of the Lord deserves no respect. When you bring blind, crippled and diseased animals...

Baking and Planning For Success

Planning for Success Requires Patience to Implement Successfully! Writing a Strategic Plan may be compared to Baking a Chocolate Cake from scratch with similar pitfalls planning for success. Both are custom made and best when executed by experts. They require diligence, precision, adherence to complicated steps and most of all – patience. Rushing the process causes serious mistakes. But those who carefully plan will enjoy good profit. Before baking a cake, correct ingredients must be gathered in a well-equipped kitchen. Note: an oven’s inaccurate temperature gauge will under cook or burn the cake’s edges. Compare this with market data that is slanted to reflect a “hoped for” conclusion. Both examples will negatively affect the outcome, despite following all the remaining steps perfectly! Even measuring and mixing ingredients offers pitfalls. The sugar and butter must be combined first, then added to the dry mix. Beat the ingredients too long and the cake becomes flat. Substitute wrong ingredients and the flavor can be ruined. (I vividly remember my daughter Linda, making a batch of blueberry muffins. She substituted baking soda for baking powder resulted in a bitter flavor of soap.) Essential to a Strategic Plan, beyond researching the market, is gathering data from former and current customers, as well as employees who have valuable expertise to be tapped carefully. Employees are in a position to assist or foil implementation. Remember – some employees may be...

The Yalta Agreement – Satan’s Method

My friend Marlin Bates was an 80+-year-old former World War II Infantry Sergeant under General Collins in conjunction with General Patton. He learned some of the following Yalta Agreement details only after the War was over. While we were out working on his land near the Mississippi River, he unveiled this fascinating true story about “the War To End All Wars, WWII.” It taught me volumes about Satan. I’m wrote this so we don’t forget. At the end of World War II General Patton’s U.S. troops had gobbled up huge chunks of land, and were just 20 miles from...
