*Ask* 5.31.2009

Today was The Rock Church's Ask event. It was a 12 prayer meeting and boy it was AWESOME! I was only there for four hours but next time, I'll push for the 12 hours. My sister, bless her heart, was there the whole time. It's amazing what prayer can do. Prayer is simply communication with God. A person's prayer is his or her own way to speak to God. It may not be eloquent or grammatically correct but God knows exactly what they are talking about. I love when Pastor Miles prays and tells God that He is "da bomb!" This card is dedicated to Pastor Miles:
The bible verse is Philippians 4:6-7 "Be careful for nothing but in prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your request be know to God. And the peace of God that passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Jesus Christ." When Peter walked on water, he was fine until he took his eyes off Christ. When we pray and ask God we are promised peace and hope. Hope of a way out, hope of love, and hope that our storms of our lives will pass.
How does one pray for hours? The bible has the best answer through the "Lord's prayer" in Psalms *** but Pastor Miles simplifies it with: AWCIPA. Short, simple, and easily remembered. A: Admire; W: Wait; C: Confess; I: Interceed; P: Petition; and A: Admire again. 

His love never fails...His unfailing love is so wonderful "and may you have the power to understand as all God's people should how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is.  May you experience the love of christ, thought it is too great to understand fully.  then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.  Now all glory to God, who is able, through his might power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think."  Ephesians 3:15-20
