    Episode 12: Prayers That Will Drastically Change Your Life

    Episode 12: Prayers That Will Drastically Change Your Life

    We've been on such a fruitful journey on this podcast. We've learned that prayer is the way we communicate with the Maker of the Universe, and He not only hears us, but He also responds. We've learned that through prayer, we access healing, wisdom, discernment, peace, protection, joy, and so much power we could never experience on our own. On our last podcast in this series, we share specific prayers that can drastically change your life. We also close out this series by praying together over these areas so that you can start experiencing the benefit of prayer today.

    Key Takeaways:
    • If changing our thoughts from negative to positive can turn our day from good to bad, they also have to power to direct the course of our lives.
    • Our Heavenly Father is ready and willing to guide and direct our steps and provide us with His wisdom and discernment to make the right decisions.
    • Even when we are weary and weak, the Lord is willing and ready to grant us His strength to surrender to the things we think I can't do or be.

    Episode 11: How to Recognize the Voice of God

    Episode 11: How to Recognize the Voice of God

    Have you ever thought you heard from God but then doubted yourself later on? "Was that really God," you question. "Maybe that was just my own thought or, maybe that was the enemy trying to trick me," you wonder. As we develop more in our faith and grow more in Christ, it becomes easier to hear from God. In today's podcast, we discuss five ways to recognize God's voice to help you further in this area.

    Key Takeaways:
    • The first thing we must understand when it comes to hearing from God is that God's voice brings peace.
    • God will never conflict what is in His written Word. He will not tell you to sin or go against His commands.
    • We can recognize God's voice by understanding that God's voice does not bring confusion but clarity.
    • With His words, God created the heavens and the earth. Imagine what one word from God could do for your life.

    Episode 10: Desperate Times Call for Desperate Prayers

    Episode 10: Desperate Times Call for Desperate Prayers

    Have you ever had to lift up a desperate prayer? Throughout the Bible, we see people in desperate need to seek God through prayer. In today's podcast, we'll look at their desperate prayers, and God's responses to those prayers, that we may learn more about prayer in our own desperate situations.

    Key Takeaways:
    • In our desperate times, there is a pouring out and a casting. It's not holding in all our feelings and emotions while trying our best to act as if they don't exist. It's being real with God about what we want, what's hurting us, and what's troubling us.
    • It's important not only to be desperate for our prayer to simply be answered but to be desperate for the God who answers prayers.
    • We serve a God who knows what it's like to be desperate, to suffer, to hurt. We are never alone. When we find ourselves in situations where God is all we have, we often discover He's all we ever needed.

    Episode 9: What to Pray When You Don't Know What to Say

    Episode 9: What to Pray When You Don't Know What to Say

    What are we supposed to do when we don't know what to pray? Just make it up? That doesn't seem sincere. Not say anything at all? That doesn't feel right. Today, we share five things you can do when you find yourself at a loss for words when it's time to pray.

    Key Takeaways
    • Scripture can serve as the outline or framework for your prayer, thus giving you words to pray that you may not have had otherwise.
    • God knows the deepest longings of our hearts that our mouths sometimes can't formulate the words to say.
    • Sometimes we need help, and it's okay to allow someone else to give us their strength.

    Episode 8: Making Time for Prayer When Life is Busy

    Episode 8: Making Time for Prayer When Life is Busy

    The stress, pressure, and overwhelm we feel in busy seasons of our lives does not come from God. Jesus gives us peace, no matter how busy life may get. This is why the busier we are, the more time we need with God. In today's episode, we discuss grace-filled practical ways to make time for prayer when life is full.

    Key Takeaways
    • We can't compartmentalize our relationship with God and feel like the only time God is pleased with us is when we're praying.
    • God is not going to be less powerful if we don't spend time praying to Him today. We will be less powerful if we do not spend time praying to Him today.
    • There is nothing that can fill you up like God can.

    Episode 7: How to Stay Focused When You Pray

    Episode 7: How to Stay Focused When You Pray

    While praying, has your mind ever drifted off to your to-do list? Have you been distracted by notifications on your phone, or just lost your place and forgot what you were praying? If so, in today's episode, I want to offer you some practical tips that you can implement to stay focused when you pray.

    Key Takeaways:
    • If you're finding yourself distracted and losing focus as you pray, ask for God to help you. If anybody is going to be able to help you, it's Him.
    • Any prayer is better than no prayer at all.
    • Start small, be patient with yourself, and you will get there. God doesn't need much to do much. So if five minutes of focused prayer is all you have, give it to God and know that He treasures every minute.
