Be bold at the Throne of Grace

Don’t ask miserly or be timid in what you ask for. Be bold! Liberal! Generous asking! Ask for great things! Good things! Give your Father in heaven no rest, day and night.

Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:16

Grace to help, for ourselves and our brethren.

    Good morning brother!

    When i read this the H.Spirit of God helped me to pray for different people.

    To save from sin, To save from worldly affection,To build the believers faith.

    Good morning brother! Glad to hear that. It helped me also to pray with more power.

    // Richard is a very dear brother in fellowship with us and we in fellowship with him, here in India //

    1Kings 3:5 In Gibeon the LORD appeared to Solomon in a dream by night: and God said, Ask what I shall give you.

    Isn’t that wonderful?! Ask me what you want me to give you. What do we want Him to give us? Do we ask boldly and confidently?

    What a wonderful reminder.

    Amen! And when I’ve lost that boldness and confidence, and am weak and unbelieving, then it is time to get on my face and entreat for greater faith, or if need be, have a short time of fasting, searching the Scriptures, seeking wisdom from Him–where have I departed from you? Then nearly always, that childlike faith returns.

  6. ian vincent Says:

    Hi Karen, I agree that it’s a good request: LORD, increase my faith. Let my faith in you grow all the time, and never stop increasing.

    I think the seeking and waiting on God you’ve described should be our reasonable service of worship all the time, and ever increasing, as He becomes increasingly our LIFE in real terms.

    Yes, I was so blessed by this hymn this morning. (And does anyone know of a good simple rendition sung without a choir and pipe organychurchy feeling to it?):

    Breathe on me, Breath of God,
    fill me with life anew,
    that I may love what thou dost love,
    and do what thou wouldst do.

    Breathe on me, Breath of God,
    until my heart is pure,
    until with thee I will one will,
    to do and to endure.

    Breathe on me, Breath of God,
    till I am wholly thine,
    till all this earthly part of me
    glows with thy fire divine.

    Breathe on me, Breath of God,
    so shall I never die,
    but live with thee the perfect life
    of thine eternity.

    I long for this kind of life in Him, that is as natural and consistent as breathing.

    I remember that hymn, Karen.

    Yesterday i asked the Father to encourage me and help me to get motivated again.

    Then i thought how faith is also synonymous with true encouragement and motivation. The person truly motivated by the Holy Spirit IS a motivated person, as opposed to a lethargic person; the difference with normal motivation, being, that their ‘motivator’ is unseen.

    He answered my prayer and the prayers of those who love me.
