Cheers to a new month! 🙂
The two book topics I had for May were exciting. I had the opportunity to learn so much about leadership (serving others with your gift, leading the way, having dominion, exercising authority…) and finances (tithing, giving, budgeting, investing, sowing…). I also read through two 10-days bible devotionals from the YouVersion bible app. May books deserve a more comprehensive summary. I would love to write a summary of one book in particular, Wisdom in Finances- Chris Harvey. This book truly has great wisdom and insight.
Now, onto June!♥
This month has some dimensional levels to it. It has two topics that are fundamental basics to the Christian faith. One of the topics is FAITH which is the basis of the Christian life. Our Christian walk is actually a walk of faith.
Faith holds the key that opens impossible doors.
Faith is that spiritual force which opens humanity to a world of unlimited possibilities.
Faith sees the invisible, dares the impossible, and delivers the incredible.
The unlimited power of faith~ David O. Oyedepo
The other topic is PRAYER which is the means of getting in contact with God. A way of reaching out to God. A way of building and sustaining a long healthy relationship with the Father. Communication tool. Since the month started, I’ve already read 2 books on prayer. I was too excited!
1. Keys for Prayer by Myles Munroe
2. 7 basic steps to successful fasting and prayer by Bill Bright
Prayer is man giving God permission or license to interfere in earth’s affairs.
In other words, prayer is earthly license for heavenly interference.
Keys for Prayer~ Myles Munroe
Prayer moves the arm that moves the world.
I’ll read books by: Kenneth E. Hagin (his ministry emphasized,and still does, on the teachings/message about faith).
Myles Munroe (his ‘purpose and power of…’ books are rich with information and revelations. Mind opening. The books always have a ‘back to the beginning where it all started from’ sort of approach that gives sound revelational understanding into what is being discussed).
Dag Heward-Mills (his books have a point by point style of writing which is easy to read and understand. It also makes it way easier to remember and refer back to).
Smith Wigglesworth (he was known as ‘the apostle of faith’. He wrote extensively about the messages of faith and prayer. He modelled a life of faith and prayer)
Priscilla Shirer (most of her books and teachings center on the importance of having a prayer strategy which she calls ‘battle plan’).
Oral Roberts (his well-known university was built on the faith he had in God and upon his obedience. His books and preachings emphasized ‘seed-faith’).
Max Lucado and many more.
What I hope to achieve this month:
- A strong prayer life
- An understanding of how prayer and faith work
- Become a woman of great faith
- Get these questions answered:
Are faith and prayer somehow connected?
Does faith grow or increase?
Can a Christian have doubts?
How can I get the most out of my prayers?
Is it mandatory to pray?
…A lifestyle of prayer. A life of faith…
