Plugged In: Accessing God’s Power through Prayer {session 2}

I am so encouraged by the emails and messages I have received from our first week of this study.  I have been praying for each participant this week, that God will bless your desire to grow closer to Him through prayer.

Today begins the Lenten season.  Although the church I attend doesn’t celebrate Lent, I do in my personal walk with Christ and have for the last several years. It is a sacred time of growing closer to Him and asking Him what He thinks has become an idol in my life that I then deny myself of for the traditional 40 days.  One year it was pride, another negative attitudes.  I will share in a later post what I am surrendering to Him this season.

Here is the video for session two:


We identified two barriers to an effective prayer life during our study today.  If you would like a .pdf printable for deeper study on these two topics, please leave a comment with your email and I will get it to you today.

If you missed last week’s session, you will want to see it first.  Here is the link.

    I took the liberty to add your post to the link up this morning. Forgive me for not posting early enough, I have two sick ones in the house and we spent yesterday at the Dr. and pharmacy getting oxygen set up at home for one.

    May the Lord bless you during this season. So glad you are joining us again!


    • My husband was digaonsed with esophageal cancer in April. He has undergone chemo and radiation therapy. Through this, he has found a true relationship with our Lord Jesus and not just a mental knowledge. For that I am thankful. God has had him in the palm of his hand and he has tolerated this treatment with little side effects although this has not been easy. His last PET scan showed no hot spots or active cancer but it is still recommended that he have surgery to remove his esophagus. He is scared to death despite his faith and prayers. Our hope is that God would perform a healing miracle so that the surgery and life style change would not be necessary. If he should allow this surgery to be performed, we are standing in faith that all will be well and he will be cured. My husband is 58.Due to this disease, my husband was forced to retire; thankfully, he has been approved for disability. These payments will not begin until December and we have taken measures to reduce our financial load. So far, God has blessed us and provided but by my eyes and finite mind, this money will not last past another month or two. I feel maybe it would be best to sell our house, horses, and goats and downsize to a more affordable dwelling which requires less upkeep, time and would allow us more financial stability. I have a high pressure job but thankfully, understanding cohorts have been supportive and tolerant of my absences when necessary. The pressure I feel at this time is overwhelming and I feel myself succumbing at times into a place of just let me hide in a corner and let the world leave me alone. I have asked Jesus to guide me, strengthen me and show me the best course of action and to bless that action and give me the strength to do what I need to do. Please God, help us.In Jesus name.
