Consistent Prayer

Due to copyright agreements, we will not be posting a transcript of Janet's message.

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: We’re continuing to focus on a prayer emphasis this month as we cry out to the Lord. More than just an emphasis, it’s a longing, a heart cry. It's desperation to see His face, and to see the Lord stir up hearts in these difficult times.

This week we’re taking time to pray specifically for our churches. As we start today’s program, Portia Collins is here to lead us as we seek the Lord together.

Portia Collins: Father, we love You. You are good. You are gracious. You are kind. You are holy. We look to You in all things and through all things.

Today, Lord, I cry out for our churches. I pray that You will continue to grow and strengthen every church, every pastor, every parishioner. Help us to be the people You have called us to be. Help us to be lights in front of men in a dying world.

God, I pray the You will continue to let Your glory shine all over this world. Call Your people back to You. Let us come back in repentance, seeking You, seeking Your hand, seeking Your power and majesty and might.

Lord, grow us, mature us so that we cannot only be those who attend churches, but those who will go out into the world and share with them who You are.

Father, we love You. We praise You and honor You. We thank You for all that You are doing and all that You have done and all that You will do.

Lord, continue to grip the hearts of Your people. Show us who You are. Strengthen us day by day. Father, we'll be forever careful to give You all the praise and the honor and the glory. It is in Jesus Christ's name that I pray, amen.

Janet Parshall's Message

Nancy: Consistent prayer isn’t something we do to check off a list or gain points with God. It’s a conversation with the Lord. It’s constant communication with our loving Father. We just heard was the first part of Janet Parshall’s message a True Woman conference on the pattern of prayer.

Dannah Gresh: Now, although we’re only in October, one of my responses to this difficult year is to usher Christmas in early! I don't know about you, but I need a little bit of hope.

Nancy: I had the same thought, Dannah. In fact, yesterday, Robert and I were at a doctor's appointment, and I asked the nurse, "How did your weekend go?" She said, "I did something really 2020. I put up my Christmas tree." She that that it's been such a rough year. She has a little three-year-old daughter. She said that it was just the thing that she and her daughter needed to get their hearts going . . . to turn on those sparkling lights.

I don't know if she knows Jesus, but I know that there is great reason for all of our hearts to have anticipation of what this Christmas means.

Dannah: I'm not the only one! I started decorating for Christmas too. Nancy, the first thing I got out to decorate was two of the Revive Our Hearts Advent devotional books from the past two Christmases. They are so beautiful, and they keep me reminded of what matters. I'm easily distracted by the lights and the recipes and everything else.

So I want to let everybody know about the new Advent devotional written by Nancy called Born a Child and Yet a King. This is the third book in the Advent trilogy, and it’s available exclusively from Revive Our Hearts. I cannot wait to get this one on my coffee table with the others!

Nancy, you focus on some beloved Christmas carols in this new book.

Nancy: I enjoyed this so much, Dannah. We all know Christmas songs. Some of us could probably sing them in our sleep if we've heard them since we were little. But my hope is that this year we would pause to really listen to the words of some of our most beloved carols to hear the story of Jesus being told.

I think it’s so important to ponder who Jesus is, why He came, and to spend time during the Advent season wondering at the miracle of His birth. As we look to Him, we know He changes us from the inside out.

Dannah: We would love for this Advent book to be a part of that. When you donate to the ministry of Revive Our Hearts, you’re helping women everywhere discover that awe found in Jesus. Hearts are moved; lives are transformed, and you make it possible. As a way to thank you for your support, we want to send you this newest Advent devotional. I hope you’ll be blessed as you see the gospel in a new way this Christmas season.

Revive Our Hearts with Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth encourages you to develop consistency in your prayer life. It’s an outreach of Life Action Ministries.
