11/1/14 Service: Prayer

Start the year w prayer.
What does God want for my life? You can know through prayer.
New year, new life and let go of your life.(2013 was full of bad stuff)
Do not conform to ways of life but transform your mindset.
James 5:16!! (Effective, fervent)
Prayer is something that causes an effect, which mean prayer will come true and change circumstances.
Prayers can be energeo (effectual) coz we are righteous thru Jesus Christ.
Truth about prayer:
1. We do not need colourful vocab to pray. Simple hi is good enough 🙂
Earnest prayer is one that Elijah proclaimed in FAITH. Faithful prayer is the most effective.
2. Length of the prayer is never an issue. Jesus never condemned short prayer but long prayers.
If we pray with long hours, we will feel like we are doing time that’s why we feel like we are in jail. God is more interested in your heart than your time. Not wrong to have long prayer, wrong when you try to repeat your prayers to extend it.
3. Prayer gives authority to us to build the kingdom of God. Pray ‘your kingdom come, your will be done’. God gave us free will and He chose not to override it. That’s why people can don’t choose Jesus and the world is fallen. So we as children of God we pray to make things happen. Prayer is effectual. Prayer changes us.

With love from God.

2014

Happy New Year! This is officially my first wordpress post and I’m really hoping no one will ever find this blog! Well coz it’s gonna be filled with my deepest thoughts and secrets which probably no one else will understand (everyone says I overthink, analyse and mostly complicate things too much) hahaha. Really hoping that i can sustain this blog throughout this year and let it be my outlet of all emotions. I never did use to like blogging or even writing down any of my thoughts or daily events but the cold, hard and cruel life that we live in kinda made me realised that the world isnt some place that i can express anything and everything to. 2014 is about finding, developing and ultimately growing myself into someone I’m happy with. Its about forming my values and everything that is important to me. Most importantly, with God being the centre of it all. Amen. Pretty sad that New Year’s Day is ending in 2 hours’ time but hey im eggcited for the year ahead! 2013 has been a blur and honestly, i’d never wanna experience it again. December was depressing and exasperating but im so glad i got to realise many things about myself and started to do smth about it! Getting pretty lengthy here and so i shall stop here for now! Really need to find that private button or smth hahaha. 

Love,

Shawn ❤
