Why Pray?

Since God knows everything, why pray? Since God knows what is going to happen, why pray?

Last night / this morning, I was asked about praying it was more like a statement; asking God for the things he already knows about; we want; and our desire to have. This is my rebuttal.

Why Pray? Is a question I also had before the Lord as well. So, I decide to dig in deeper.

Prayer is a vital tool for building up our communicational skills with the Father. Prayer is a weapon.

Pray for What? Prayer is a way to build your relationship with God. It is not about things, people or places. Jesus prayed to the Father because He communicated with the Father for direction, instruction, guidance while here on earth. I firmly believe that Jesus was keeping the lines of communication open.

Prayer is about making your relationship with God to become more personal. When prayer becomes personal you are no longer praying to God that is somewhere out there but a God who is closer than your breath.

I believe getting answers to prayer is by believing, obeying and quoting the word of the Lord – before, during and after praying. I believe that God is drawn to hearing his word spoken which is about His will when praying rather than praying our request that may not be His will.

In summarizing this question about why pray, I believe it is about relationship, friendship and companionship, and fellowship with our creator, healer, deliverer, Saviour and redeemer.

No Weapon

I heard this, “No weapon that is formed”. I want you to know this one thing that weapons will be formed.

Weapons will be shaped. Weapons will be configured. Weapons will show up when you least expect it. Weapons will be tried to be used against you. Weapons will appear like they are going to destroy you. Weapons will seem like they will kill you.

These weapons can be such as sickness, prophetic divination, and demonic strategies that try to steal, kill, and destroy your faith in Christ.

Within our lives there are guns, knives, and bombs are effective against the enemies in this physical realm; but they have no power against the ones we cannot see in the spiritual realm. 

Paul says, “For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does.  The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world.  On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.  We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ” (2 Corinthians 10:3-5).

But NO matter how the weapons are formed they will not prosper.

The weapons will not accomplished anything. The weapons will not destroy, kill, steal, neither will it be used against you.

Just because you and under attack and the weapons are formed does not mean they are going to be used.

Remember that the weapon will be formed but it will not do what the purpose or plan against you by your enemy because the word of God says “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper…”

Fret not! Do not be afraid of your weapon(s) because they will not prosper.

Isaiah 54:17 states that “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.”

The Storm is Standing Still…

Yes, favor is fair!

Yes, I feel that my storm ⛈ is standing still. This storm seems like it is not moving. It seems like God has forgotten me or maybe He forgot that I am in the midst of the storm.

The longer the storm of discouragement; the harder life’s winds of despair blow; or the greater the rains of disappointments may fall – I convinced that God is up to something in my life.

But is will stand until my change comes.

Job said it best in these scriptures, “Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him.” Job 13:15.

Also Job said “If a man die, shall he live again? all the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come.” Job 14:14

As I am waiting until my change comes. David said “I waited patiently for the Lord; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.” Psalm 40:1

In Isaiah 40:31 states ”but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.”

I am happy to say and report I am a THEY WHO wait for the LORD.

So my Post is locked and Position has been established in Him and with Him in Heavenly places far above principalities and powers.

Now, I firmly believe that ears have not heard and eyes have not seen what God is about to do to me, by me, through me and in me.

Did You Know…

The cares of life can become overwhelming and one’s desire is to be or would want to be with the Lord.

It is these times in what we think is our weakness is our strength is in him.

I want you to be reminded of something you may not know or have forgotten in this time of looking around.

Did you know that Jesus struggled and could not carry His own cross?

Did you know you have the right to cast your cares on Him for He cares for you?

Did you know it is times like this that you are in a position to be blessed?

Did you know that Satan wants you to give up because he does not want your influence and affluence for the Kingdom of God to be aborted?

Did you know that you can close on the biggest of God and not on the biggest of situations and circumstances around you?

Did you know that God wants to use you – yes You, Ellisa Weeks for His glory and honor because of His investment in you?

Did you know that your hunger and thirst for more of God is not from you but from Him?

Did you know that you have not experienced the abundance of life yet?

Did you know that your purpose and the plan of God have not been fulfilled yet?

Did you know that you have just started the SII Faith School Diploma Program which is our faith’s fundamental yet and it is so much more to know so you can share?

So before you go and desire to leave make sure that you are not leaving or desiring to leave prematurely.

I Am With You

Have you been disappointed? Feeling like giving up? Things are not going in your favor as you thought and wanted them to go? Or your are feeling despair and discouraged? Made a decision based on the information you had from a person or people you thought had your back?

If anyone of these above questions you answered ”yes”, Read on. If not still read on because before your day is finished you will need this word of encouragement to empower you.

The Bible says ”We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.” 2 Corinthians 4:8-10

You may be feeling troubled on every side, distressed; perplexed, despair; Persecuted, forsaken; cast down, and destroyed. No matter how you feel the Lord is with you.

For Isaiah 41:10-13 declares ”Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish. Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contended with thee: they that war against thee shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought. For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.”

God will Surely Visit You!

Isaiah 8:1-3 says “Moreover the Lord said unto me, Take thee a great roll, and write in it with a man’s pen concerning Mahershalalhashbaz. And I took unto me faithful witnesses to record, Uriah the priest, and Zechariah the son of Jeberechiah. And I went unto the prophetess; and she conceived, and bare a son. Then said the Lord to me, Call his name Mahershalalhashbaz.”

The name Maher-shall-hash-baz means: plunder speedeth; spoil hasteth (Isaiah 8:1-3)

We must write what God is giving us down whether through vision or dreams, encounters, and or visitations.

Job 33:14-16 states For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed; Then he openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction,

In Habakkuk 2:2-4 says And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry. Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.

What God is about to reveal to us as people are big ideas with witty inventions – bigger than you can do on your own.

These plans are God’s purposes for the remaining of 2019 and 2020 and beyond.

You will be taken leaps of faith and some will take quantum leaps of faith.

In Genesis 50:24 says …and God will surely visit you, and bring you out…

As People of God, there is a stirring on the inside of you to do things that will impact the Kingdom of God for advancement and anointing will be there to break every chain.

It is about taking what we have to the world so we can win some not all.

It is time for us to become synchronized with the plans and purposes of the Lord because Heaven is now ready to receive Christ’s Bride, the Church.

What God has invested inside of you is coming forth there you must 1. Write what God gives you down. 2. Pray about it and ask God to set it up. 3. Take to your spiritual leader, Pastor, etc. 4. Waiting for confirming word which will come in different ways. 5. Keep your spiritual ears and eyes open to be able to see and hear what the Lord is saying. 6. Remember, you only have a part of the vision, not the whole point and picture of what God wants to do on earth as it is written in heaven.
