Listen to the words of Hebrews chapter 4 verses 15 and 16, “For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

The Christmas story so reminds us of this incredible truth, when the creator of the universe came to us in the weakness of a baby, literally wrapping Himself in the frailty of our human condition. This incredible act of grace shows you and I today that Jesus Christ is not offended by our struggles, but rather joins with us in them to become our source of strength and hope for the future. Knowing these things, we come to an obvious conclusion: it’s time to pray!

Partaking of Christ’s Sufferings http://itstimetopray.org/radio-devotionals/partaking-of-christs-sufferings http://itstimetopray.org/radio-devotionals/partaking-of-christs-sufferings#respond Thu, 22 Feb 2018 05:01:00 +0000 http://itstimetopray.org/radio-devotionals/partaking-of-christs-sufferings In 1 Peter chapter 4 and verse 13 the Apostle Peter exhorts us to, “rejoice to the extent that we become partakers of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, that we also may be glad with exceeding joy.” Now one of the ways that we partake of Christ’s sufferings is to begin to

In 1 Peter chapter 4 and verse 13 the Apostle Peter exhorts us to, “rejoice to the extent that we become partakers of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, that we also may be glad with exceeding joy.

Now one of the ways that we partake of Christ’s sufferings is to begin to pray for fellow believers in other countries who are suffering unspeakable hardship because of their faith in Christ. For example, in North Korea, it is reported that our brothers and sisters in the Lord are being imprisoned, they are abused, beaten, raped and starved for the stated crime of being a Christian.

The Bible tells us that when their deliverance comes, because of our prayer, we will be glad with them with exceeding joy.

Remember, it’s time to pray!

Psalm 127 verses 1 and 2, “Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it. Unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman stays awake in vain. It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows; For so He gives His beloved sleep.

We are all so prone to worry. Fear for the future causes us to lose sleep, morning and night, all the while adding to an increasing feeling of hopelessness. The good news is that God is at work within us, building and leading us to the future which He has planned for our lives. The heart that trusts in God is the heart that finds the rest it is longing for.

If you’re tired today, give the work of building your future over to Him.

It’s time to pray!

It’s amazing what God is doing in the lives of His people. We’re not immune to the hard times that seem to be hitting everywhere, but we do have a heavenly Father who cares and is there to help us through the storms. At our Worldwide Prayer meeting, here in New York City every Tuesday night at 7PM Eastern Time we are hearing some incredible answers to prayer.

This is John and Linda from New Castle, Australia, “We asked for prayer for Pastor Jose who had been falsely accused, and taken to court. The charges were dismissed and even the prosecution defended Pastor Jose.” Praise God.

Here’s Michael from New York, “Praise Jesus for delivering me from 40 years of sexual immorality, identity confusion and homosexual influence. This has been a long battle, but God is faithful.”

And Jane says, “I want to give public praise to God for freeing me from over 30 separate personalities. I have a brand new mind in Jesus.” It’s time to pray!

The book of Romans chapter 13 and verse 7 gives us some good advice, “Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor.

The third Monday of February every year, we celebrate President’s Day. Though it was originally George Washington’s birthday, we now celebrate all of those who have held this office right up ’til our present day. Though often tumultuous, their combined leadership has left a legacy of freedom and opportunity today in America. So today, we continue to honor our leadership by praying for them that God would give them divine wisdom and guidance.

All of us now have a stake in our own futures. It’s time to pray!

God invites us to come and reason with Him so He can give us is heart for all humanity. We cannot bless God and curse people who God made in His image. The violence we let get a hold of our spirit will consume us. It is so important that we ask God to help us reason with Him until we agree with His ways. God wants to give us a clean speech so our prayers can be heard and we can cry out for those who are wrapped in grave clothes. We are called to be of a different spirit and to be a voice of forgiveness and love so we can push back the darkness. What do people think of Jesus because of you? Does your life carry the fragrance of Christ? It’s time to reason again and say, “Lord I choose life and love.”

I Timothy chapter 6 and verse 16, “Who alone has immortality dwelling in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see, to whom be honor and everlasting power, amen.

It is true that God dwells in unapproachable light. Maybe that’s why he left the light of who He is in you, so that He can be approached by those who need His help today. Undoubtedly, God wants to be approached this way, but the question now is, can you be approached so that His light can be experienced by someone today?

Are you too busy, indifferent, or possibly even too grouchy for people to get close enough to God through you? Why not let your light shine today? You might be the only ray of hope to someone today that you meet.

To get this light, remember, it’s time to pray!

Acts chapter 16 beginning at verse 29, “Then he called for a light, ran in, and fell down trembling before Paul and Silas. And he brought them out and said, ‘Sirs, what must I do to be saved?’

Now this man who called for a light lived in and was used to darkness; however, a sudden and inexplicable shaking had come to his world. Everything had gotten beyond his control. Not only did he find a physical light, but more importantly, a spiritual one was there for him as well. Two men, to whom I’m sure he had shown very little kindness were still there for him to show him the way to eternal life.

Be there today for those who are not kind to you; you never know when their cry for help will come your way.

My brother, my sister, it’s time to pray!
