Have you ever prayed scary prayers? They are the kind of prayers that are so big and bold and outside the normal prayers we pray before bedtime. Only God has the power to answer scary prayers. Have you ever seen God answer any scary prayers? I have.
Nothing has increased my faith in God like prayer. It’s what keeps me praying and worshiping even when some prayers don’t get answered and the healings don’t come. I’ll talk about prayer, teach about it, write about it, try to get you to start doing it all. day. long. if you’ll let me!
Jesus says if we have faith the size of a mustard seed, we can move mountains. (Matthew 17:20) That. sounds. crazy. Jesus! What Jesus is really inviting us to is a deeper faith.
In the Lord’s Prayer, Jesus teaches us to pray saying Your will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven. Then, He teaches us to pray/ask for three things:
2. Personal Relationships- Forgive us as we Forgive others
3. Against Sin and Evil- Lead us not into temptation and deliver us from evil
When we pray on Earth as it is Heaven, we are praying and trusting God to provide for our physical, relational, and spiritual needs.
We are praying for the perfect provision in Heaven to unleash into our lives on Earth. (This stuff gets me super jacked in Jesus name… btw.)
But sometimes there are mountains in the way!!! Some mountains we create on our own. Others are simply there because life. is. hard!! We live in a world full of trouble, strife, and hardship. And we DO have an enemy who hates us and will do anything to get in the way of us seeing God.
What does Jesus tell us to do with mountains BY FAITH??? He says… Tell them to move! That’s a scary prayer.
In the physical world mountains are HUGE! My dad lives in Montana. We would drive all around mountains on the way to our campsite… our destination. It would take a while!
Jesus is always speaking directly to issues of our hearts and souls… the things that last.
In the spiritual world, in your Christian walk (heart)… what mountains are in the way of you seeing Heaven or experiencing and seeing God? What mountains are in the way of your spiritual growth? Jesus tells us to move the mountains… not drive around them.
Will you join me for 7 days of scary prayers? For 7 days, let’s pray for mountains to move and Heaven to invade those places with His glory.
I love love love Matthew 16: 15-19- And on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of Heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven and whatever you loose on Earth will be loosed in Heaven.
Let’s intentionally loose Heaven on Earth in Jesus name for 7 days. Tweet That
What do your mountains look like? Are they financial? Relational? Physical? Do you need healing? We will pray through the Lord’s Prayer for 7 days. Over these 7 days, I will send a prayer every day to your email that teaches you how to pray for a specific mountain to move.
I won’t be able to cover every mountain in 7 days, but it’s my hope that these 7 days serve as a jump start to a faith building prayer life!
Some of you reading this have had some really jacked up things happen to you and you don’t even know if you have a mustard size faith. If that is you, then borrow some of my faith and sign up anyway. I have enough faith and hope to carry you. Yes. You. I pray for every eye that reads any word I write or say.
We can have perfect peace and provision this side of Earth. We can have contentment in Jesus name. It might not look like what you thought it would, but God’s promises remain true.
So what do you say? Will you join me? Starting Monday, January, 16th, will you join me for 7 days of scary prayers? Will you join me as we seek God and tell mountains to move in Jesus name? I pray you say yes!
You can find my Youtube teaching videos here to go along with them!
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you for showing us how to pray. Thank you for Jesus. Father, help us to keep your words in our minds and hearts as we seek you! Give us the strength to trust you once again..or maybe for the first time. Jesus let us feel your presence and encourage us as we seek to move the mountains in our lives and the lives of our loved ones in Jesus name. Father, we can do none of this without you. You are everything.
In Jesus name,
