Spreading God's Love Thru Prayer
Let's Pray: Father, God, please continue to lead me and guide me into the truth I need to walk in the True Authority of Christ - thank You. I lay down all of my understandings, insights, visions, prophetic insight, imagination and dreams and all emotions and thoughts attached to these at your feet and say 'Your Will Be Done' only - in my life 24/7. Thank You. Enlighten the eyes of my understanding and I choose to Trust In The Lord with all of my heart - and lean not to my own understanding. Keep me in perfect peace, Abba, in Jesus' name, Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen!

Jesus spoke about ASKing - check out the following scriptures:
And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.
Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.
Asking is powerful, and Jesus promised to fulfill all the asking of those who are new in Him - as in born again and receiving the free gift of the Holy Spirit - as we learn and grow. It's all about the greater one within us who makes us new every day. Just as a baby grows as the family around is - so we are new born 'babes' in Christ grow as the Family of God (Father, Abba/Mother, Spirit/Son, Savior, Risen Lord) is within us and all around us!!!!
