A Prayer for Watchfulness


Proverbs 8:34
Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates,
waiting at the posts of my doors.

Lord as the time draws near for your return, we remain earnest and disciplined in prayer. We are not like others who fail to be vigilant, but we are on guard as spiritual watchmen and intercessors. We do not slumber on our posts. But we are alert and clearheaded in every situation. We are faithful to intercede for others, to stand in the gap and make up the hedges. There is no fear of suffering for you Lord. As we work at telling others about the Good News, it is fully carrying out the ministry you have given us as the body of Christ.

Devoting ourselves to prayer with an alert mind and a thankful heart is our passion. We pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Our spiritual eyes and ears are open, making persistent prayers for all believers everywhere. Through our prayers, we declare that the plans, purposes and destiny of your people will not be cutoff. We invite the work of the Holy Spirit to bring kingdom alternatives to every situation.

We remember our leaders who taught us the word of God, thinking of all the good that has come from their lives, and following the example of their faith. We don’t know the exact time of your coming but we are your servants who have received instructions through your scriptures about what we must do.

As gatekeepers, we watch and pray for your return and resist temptation. You have said that you will come unexpected as a thief, but blessed are those who are watching for you. Our garments are ready for your inspection and we will not be found spiritually naked and ashamed. We have vision, anointing, integrity and spiritual health because we abide in the vine.

“Lord of Hosts” – A Poem


My Everlasting Lord and Father
Preserver of all men and beast
I yield unto Your glorious power
Abiding in Your strength and peace

Most Holy, Sovereign, Righteous King
To utter Your praise is my delight
Lift up my head again to sing
My Shield, my Buckler, Path of Light

King of Glory, Counselor, Saviour
Eternal Fortress, Great Redeemer
Near to me, Alpha Omega
Joyful Refuge, You’re my Healer

Your strength perfected in my weakness
My fear is cast out by Your love
My peace is resting in Your presence
Lighting on me like a dove

Lord of Hosts, I worship You
Oh Lord of Hosts, I worship You

A Relentless Cry


A few days ago, I was watching a video recording of one of my favorite ministers. In the middle of the sermon, a baby began to cry relentlessly for two or three minutes. I will admit that for a few moments I was a bit annoyed. A wondered, like some in the pews, why the parent didn’t take the baby out to another area. I got a little distracted from the sermon and had to replay the portion where the baby was crying. But then I got distracted again. This time it was from my own thoughts. When babies cry it is because they want something. They cry because they are hungry, need a diaper change, uncomfortable, sick or just want attention. They will cry until the need is met.

Romans 8:15 says “For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear, but ye have received the Spirit of adoption whereby we cry, Abba Father.” All of us were created to express the emotions of our soul and of our spirit with a “cry.” That cry will demand a response from something or someone greater than ourselves. God, who is the source of our spirit hears every cry of the soul and spirit. He created us to communicate that cry to Him alone.

He has told us in His Word in Matthew 4:19 “But Jesus said, Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” He also said as long as we abide in this earth we can ask for His kingdom alternatives to come on earth as it is in heaven.

Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. –Luke 12:22

We have permission to cry out relentlessly to God when we are hungry. He has promised to take care of us naturally because He is Jehovah-Jireh. He has promised to satiate us spiritually with the knowledge, understanding and wisdom of the bread of life… His scriptures. They instruct us with the principles to live this life on earth.

We have permission to cry out relentlessly when we are thirsty. He has given us the gift of the Holy Spirit to abide with us to quench our thirst for a comforter, helper and teacher.

We have permission to cry out relentlessly when we need our spiritual diapers changed. Through the Blood of Jesus, He has forgiven us, cleansed, sanctified, redeemed, and consecrated us to reveal His glory in us, on us and through us.

We have permission to cry out relentlessly when we are in distress. He is a banner and shield for us, a defender, covering and a hedge of protection.

We have permission to cry out relentlessly when we are sick (physically and spiritually). He is Jehovah Raphe the healer of all manner of sickness, diseases, afflictions, and infirmities.

And best of all we have permission to cry out relentlessly to Him when we just want to be in His presence. He is an omnipresent (everywhere), omnipotent (all power), omniscient (all knowing) God All Mighty.

If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. –John 15:7

So the next time you hear a baby cry relentlessly, don’t be annoyed. Just smile and remember that you too, have permission to cry out relentlessly to the Lord.
