Today we will be taking a peek at another ongoing series we will be visiting hopefully quite often. Our “How They Prayed” series looks into the lives of the peoples past who were involved in the great conquests of missions and revivals. We find these stories from the books of Harvey Publishers, who for many years have worked tirelessly to preserve the history of Christian missions and revivals. These stories have been kept alive so that this current generation may also carry on that hope, and know what we also can be capable of if we think outside the norm of the culture we have been brought up in and expand our vision upwards and outwards.

This week we are starting a new series on Answered Prayers. We have focused a lot lately on what to pray for and the importance of prayer, but it behooves us to meditate on prayers that we are blessed enough to see the fruits of. Reading of God’s providence can often be a source of encouragement and faith strengthening.

This week we will look into the prayer life of Oswald Chambers. While his name might sound familiar, you will almost certainly recognize his devotional, My Utmost for His Highest. Despite dying at the young age of 43, his writings and transcribed sermons have influenced thousands, if not millions of people in times past till today.

Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, But to Your name give glory, Because of Your mercy, Because of Your truth. Why should the Gentiles say, "So where [is] their God?" But our God [is] in heaven; He does whatever He pleases. Their idols [are] silver and gold, The work of men's hands. They have mouths, but they do not speak; Eyes they have, but they do not see; They have ears, but they do not hear; Noses they have, but they do not smell; They have hands, but they do not handle; Feet they have, but they do not walk; Nor do they mutter through their throat. - Psalm 115:1-7

  From the Answered Prayers Series

Dire seems our condition. Our society trudges on in stubbornness and fierceness, yet fearfully disoriented. Our education has gone awry and somehow in the pursuit of higher education, it appears the generation here, coming, and on its way out, has suffered in a lack of it. Morals are disintegrating before our eyes like the faint wisp of a dandelion seed, desperately we grab for it and urge others to do the same but to no avail. There appears to be some sort of value to life, due to laws set forth; yet the laws set forth add to the degradation by advocating the extermination of the more precious forms of life, the unborn. Adding on to the increase of suicide and depression.

"Lord, forgive us, for the church has conformed to the world. God’s people view pornography, listen to the same music as the world, and act like the world. You are a holy God and You are seeking a holy people. We repent and ask that You would forgive us and send us a revival! O God, make us a holy people for Your glory!” 

This prayer was prayed recently in an America Pray Now prayer meeting and was very impacting! The Lord’s desire is to have a church that is not conformed to this world. Only then will His life and power flow through us to our needy nation.

In the historical books of the Bible, we learn that God is intimately involved in history and the destiny of nations. We discover an inspired historical record that encourages us to believe that God can and will answer our prayers for America. In the Book of Ezra, for example, we read that God inspired King Cyrus of Persia to urge the Jewish exiles to return to Jerusalem to rebuild the Temple that the Babylonians under Nebuchadnezzar had destroyed some seventy years earlier.


“Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the Lord by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled, the Lord stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, so that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and also put it in writing, saying, Thus says Cyrus king of Persia: All the kingdoms of the earth the Lord God of heaven has given me. And He has commanded me to build Him a house at Jerusalem which is in Judah. Who is among you of all His people? May his God be with him, and let him go up to Jerusalem which is in Judah, and build the house of the Lord God of Israel (He is God), which is in Jerusalem.” (Ezra 1:1-3)

In Mark chapter 10 we find the story of a blind man named Bartimaeus.
It says that as Jesus went out of Jericho with His disciples a great multitude followed them, and Blind Bartimaeus sat by the roadside begging. When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth he began to cry out and say, “Jesus, Son of David have mercy on me!” Then some warned him to be quiet, but he cried out all the more, “Son of David have mercy on me!” 
 

For Bartimaeus, the first step towards healing was humility.

Today, we’re going to look at the prayer life of a missionary who, while not well known during his life, left an impact on souls for years to come: Jim Elliot. 

 

Jim was born in Oregon in 1927 to a minister and his wife and their two other children. Jim accepted Christ at a young age and grew to be increasingly close to his Heavenly Father. In 1945 he began attending Wheaton College where he learned, perhaps one of the most important lessons for any Christian, discipline.

Often, we find ourselves at a loss of words during our prayer time, or we are just learning to pray, or we have felt we have prayed so much that there are no more words left! We find good news regarding this predicament if we look into the verse found in Romans 8:26-27.

 

“Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God."

When Jesus entered the temple everything changed! He drove out all that was keeping His house from being a house of prayer. After He finished, the blind and lame came and were healed! 

When His house is filled with His Presence there is life, light, power, and healing flowing!

Imagine its 1710 in a little village called Epworth, England. You’re the wife of the town cobbler and its been a very busy day for your husband so you’re taking some deliveries for him throughout the village. Spring has arrived and everyone has their windows open, grateful for a taste of fresh, clean air. As you go along you pass the parsonage and glance inside the open window. The sight that meets your eyes stops you in your tracks.

 

There are 8 children on the floor, table and chairs. Some are reading, some are working mathematical equations and a few smaller children are playing with blocks and sticks. In the midst of them is woman, sitting in a chair, and over her face is an apron. Yes, she has set an apron over her face and sits quietly and still. You shake your head, That Susanna Wesley is a strange one, you say to yourself as you walk on. 

 

Yes, that woman was Susanna Wesley, and that was her praying apron.

b2ap3_thumbnail_King-David.jpgIt seems a fitting start, in the series on individuals of intercession, to discuss the man of prayer named King David. Since he practically wrote a whole entire book of prayer called the Psalms, found smack dab in the middle of our Bibles, we see many of his own accounts of desperate prayer and praise directed specifically towards the throne of God itself. Anyone who has spent any amount of time in the Psalms has noticed that David had a full spectrum of very raw and real human emotions, just as we do. But he had the bravery and the deep intimate relationship with the Lord to feel it appropriate to expose the reality of his life and the truest feelings of his heart to God Himself, because he knew God! Before David was lifted to the place of royalty, he was but a lowly and lonely shepherd. He spent days and years alone in the fields tending to sheep and mastered his harp, spending countless hours singing praises to God, fellowshipping, and praying. That is why his psalms are so intimate, because they sprung from an intimate relationship with God himself.

As Christians, we seek to model men and women of faith who run after God and have a relationship with Him that is undeniable. But something, something powerful, sets apart certain men and women of God from the rest. What is it? We believe it is their life of prayer. Those times, early in the morning, midday, or late at night, spent in their closets on their faces before God. Prayer. Prevailing, intercessory prayer, sets the great men and women of God apart from the rest.

 

We will be doing a series, alternating from the lives of men and women of intercession and lessons from King David’s prayer life, with the object of learning from and being encouraged by those who have gone before us.

 

So today, we begin with John Hyde, better known as “Praying Hyde.”

“We wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” - Eph. 6:12

 
Many Christians can quote this verse from Ephesians from memory, but as God’s people do we fully understand it’s meaning in the depths of our hearts? 


These principalities and powers of darkness are real, and they are ruled by Satan himself. Satan and his army are working continually to destroy you — to destroy God’s people and to hinder the kingdom of God from advancing on earth. They seek to kill, steal, and destroy!
