Daily Prayers Are Heaven’s Stairs (Sunday, April 21, 2008)

Daily Prayers are Heaven’s Stairs The “Stairway” rises “Heaven high”- The “steps” are dark and steep, In weariness we climb them As we stumble, fall and weep… And many times we falter Along the “path of prayer” Wondering if You hear us And if You really care… Oh, give us some assurance, Restore our faith anew, So we can keep on climbing The “Stairs of Prayer” to You- For we are weak and wavering, Uncertain and unsure, And only meeting You in prayer Can help us to endure All life’s trials and troubles It’s sickness, pain and sorrow, And give us strength and courage To face and meet tomorrow! – Unknown

Scared…by Elaine Davenport (Monday, April 14, 2008)

Matt.8: 26: And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.

As you sit dealing with whatever it is that you’re facing, you’re probably having some of the same thoughts that I had. You just want it to go away.. You really aren’t looking for a long faith adventure, but you’ll take that over the often deadly or devastating diagnosis you’ve been given. Now people are at different faith levels granted there are people who will immediately understand that it’s warfare and an attack and they know what to do.

However, if you are like me, when I was struck with a deadly diagnosis; I just wanted it to go away and I was “scared.” Yes, I said the “S” word. It wasn’t until I got hold of the Word of God and found out that Jesus had already healed me when he got up on that tree…I just needed to believe it. There was no need to be scared. None at all.

Do What The Word Says! by Elaine Davenport (April 12, 2008)

The Word on Healing won’t work if you hear it.  Don’t panic…hearing isn’t enough.  God said so.  Going to hear it and thinking  about it won’t work.  That’s a fact.

You must hear it and do it.    The Word of God says a lot…try to make a list.  Here’s a partial one:


1. Stand.

2. Put on the Shield of faith.

3. Put on the breastplate of righteousness.

3. Put on the Belt of truth.

4. Put on the Helmet of salvation, the sword of the Spirit.

5. Let your feet be shod with the gospel of the preparation of peace.

6. Say unto this mountain “Be thou removed and be thou cast into the sea.”

The list goes on and on, but are you doing it?    If you do, you’ll get results.

King James Version.

James 1:22  But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.

James 1:23  For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:

James 1:24  For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.

James 1:25  But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

Notice that it says, if you “hear” the Word, you’ll forget it.  If you do it you’ll be Blessed in your “deed”.  Your deed is your effort to be healed.  Amen.

Faith’s Enemy: Doubt! by Elaine Davenport (Monday, March 31, 2008)

If you need to be healed…you’ve got some things to do…and the list isn’t long.

1. Cast out All Doubt and get in faith. Clear your mind!

2. Get before God; make a promise and plan to do that on a regular basis.

3. Get Active with what you put before your eyes, in your heart and what you say and see. (Clue: The Bible)

4. Be ready!

5. Expect resistance but more importantly; expect God to move in your behalf.

5. Be prayerful

This “short” list is in addition to all of the other stuff that you do

Only it must be in faith that he asks with no wavering (no hesitating, no doubting). For the one who wavers (hesitates, doubts) is like the billowing surge out at sea that is blown hither and thither and tossed by the wind.
James 1: 6

Instantly Jesus reached out His hand and caught and held him, saying to him, O you of little faith, why did you doubt?
Matthew 14: 31

Preserve my life, for I am godly and dedicated; O my God, save Your servant, for I trust in You [leaning and believing on You, committing all and confidently looking to You, without fear or doubt]. Psalm 86: 2

Do all things without grumbling and faultfinding and complaining [against God] and questioning and doubting [among yourselves]. Philippians 2: 14

And Jesus answered them, Truly I say to you, if you have faith (a firm relying trust) and do not doubt, you will not only do what has been done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, Be taken up and cast into the sea, it will be done. Matthew 21:21
