IMPORTUNITY IN PRAYER


I am reminded of a faithful friend, who continued in prayer for the loved one. We hear great stories and programs where the bad guy gets saved and lived happily ever after. In real life, we do not often see the results of our hopes and prayers come to fulfillment.  
A wonderful speaker confessed that he prays for sick patients and sometimes they die. But he don’t stop prayin’. Says he, if I judged that most of my prayers were ineffective, and went unanswered, then I would just stop praying for anybody and everybody. He even said that he tried “Walkin on water. Went out into the backyard and tried it in his daughters’ play pool and it didn’t work. But he likes to jist keep on tryin’.Importunity. 
That’s the kind of prayer brother or sister I want: They just don’t give up, no matter.
Sometimes the bad guy never shapes-up and never gits saved. Only time will tell and YHVH know that in the end He may “call, elect and choose” this sinner. It might be AFTER the 1000 year Millennium. IsaiYah 65.
But when you have “prayed-through” and you know your prayer has been heard, and the answer is either green-light or red-light (or yellow, slow) then I think we can rest the request, and maybe mention it only occasionally.
Thanksgiving PRAYER

Heavenly Father, ACTS  
Put our Life in order through confidence in the Word, and prophetic Scriptures.

If these are indeed the very last days before the final trumpet sounds and the dead are risen, help us. Please finish the work quickly. The 2 Chronicles 7:14 prayer.
Combating shootings and terrorism. Those who have lost close friends. That we have not yet incurred the plagues. Our own country has not had to face such terror. Help us to be generous in every way with Thy chosen people. That we would love and fear YAHVAH

If I prayed everyday that my daughter would shape-up, I would go nuts. So even though I love her (but loved her more when she was lovable) I release her to Yah and leave the results up to the both of them. If she don’t wanna go to heaven, she wouldn’t feel very comfortable there anyway. Messiah tells us there will be more severe punishment for some, and for others, maybe closer to what the J.W.’s and Adventists think. Luke 13 They will miss-out on being close to YaHOSHA Messiah, maybe only see Him once a year at the Feast of Tabernacles Zechariah 14 while others will not have to wait a “year” but will have close relationship. Others will suffer for a time; still others like ha Satan will burn forever in the fiery pit, I don’t care what they say about a Dante’s Inferno. Heaven is real, man! And so is hell! How do I spell relief? PRYAER? No. Prayer.

Jeroboam changed Feast of Sukkot to his own worship style.
WORKS:
Eph 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Messiah YaHOSHA unto good works, which Sovereign One hath before ordained that we should walk in them. 
Rev_2:2 I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:
Rev_2:9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
Rev_2:13 I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan's seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.
Rev_2:19 I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first.
Rev_3:1 And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of Sovereign One, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.

Rev_3:15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
Proverbs_28:9 One who turns his ear from hearing Torah—even his prayer is an abomination.
Whom will Sovereign One hear? Let's first go over some of the things that will cause Sovereign One not to hear our prayers. People who say "Lord, lord," actually believe their prayers are being heard, Matthew 7:21-23. Sovereign One did not say that what they said was not true, but because they lived in sin, Sovereign One will not let them enter His Kingdom. If the husband does not give his wife honor, Sovereign One will not hear that man's prayers, I Peter 3:7. It is not Sovereign One's fault that He will not hear us, our sins cut us off from Sovereign One, Isaiah 59:1-3.
Knowing that there is no power on earth that can cut us off from Sovereign One, Romans 8:31-39, we should take steps to correct any flaws in our character. Psalms 15:1-5 shows the person whose prayers are heard and who will be in Sovereign One's Kingdom. Sovereign One looks to the man who is humble, and fears to mishandle His word, Isaiah 66:2. Sovereign One looks for people to serve Him, II Chronicles 16:9. Elijah was a man who was subject to the same passions we are, yet Sovereign One heard his prayers, James 5:13-18. This shows that we can be subject to passions yet not give in to them and sin. We cannot free ourselves from this world until death.

Micah 6:8 He has shown thee O man, what is good; and what doth YaHVaH require of thee, but to do justice, love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy Sovereign One.
