Prayer 2021 - August 22 - What Peter Had to Say About Prayer pt 3

Scripture For Today:

Acts 6:6

“They presented these men to the Apostles, who prayed and laid their hands on them.”

What Peter Had to Say About Prayer pt 3

We have been studying what the Apostle Peter had to say about prayer. Yesterday, we looked at 1 Peter 3:2-7.  Today, I want to move over to 1 Peter 4:7, which says:

“But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer…”

Peter wrote this under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. He wrote this letter to believers and it included some general instructions for believers living in that day and time. And since God never changes, we can infer that it is written for us today – in our day and time. Amen!

So, by the Spirit of God, Peter is looking down into the future to our day and time and begins to talk about events happening today – that we can see happening all around us! Amen!

Jesus told us in Mark 13:33“Take heed, watch and pray, for you know not when the time is.”

Peter said, looking at the same thing Jesus was talking about through the eyes of the Holy Spirit, “…the end of all things is at hand, be ye therefore sober and watch unto prayer.”

Jesus was talking about the last days and Peter was talking about the last days. And we are LIVING in the last days that both of them were talking about! Amen!

Remember, we talked about not hindering your prayers a few days ago, right?

We learned the “eyes of the Lord are over the righteous and his ears are open unto their prayers,” right? That was in 1 Peter 3:12.

Well, we also learned that WE are the “righteousness of God” through Christ, right?

So when we put all of this together, what do you see?

Jesus and Peter are both talking about the day and time in which we live. That’s number one.

Number two: Both Jesus and Peter are talking to believers.

Number three:  If you are born again, then you are a believer and re-created in the Righteousness of God through Christ, right?

Number four: The eyes of the Lord are OVER us – or you could say “watching over us.” 

Number five: The ears of the Lord are OPEN to our prayers.

Sum it all up and you can clearly see that, even though we are living in the worst times of humanity – the Lord has clearly stated that HE is going to look out for US and answer our prayers when we call on Him in Faith. Not based on anything that WE have done – but on what HE has done. 

I’ve got to stop here for today – otherwise I’m about to go into an in-depth teaching that is outside the scope of what this daily inspirational prayer teaching is supposed to be about. Praise God!

I don’t know about you, but I get excited when I start thinking along these lines. Amen!

If you’re not on fire right now for the Lord – your wood is wet. Bless God!

Bob Thibodeau

Pastor Robert Thibodeau has been in online ministry since starting his own podcast in mid-2009. Within about six months, he was offered a slot on nationwide Christian AM radio. His broadcast was heard in four major markets for one year.

He then started what today is called, "Evangelism Radio" and went live 24/7 beginning on October 4, 2010 and continues to this day. Now with over 50 broadcasters submitting programming on a weekly basis, Evangelism Radio has listeners in over 160 nations and all 50 states. It was also ranked by Shoutcast.com as #1 in the world in the Christian Talk genre on many occasions.

In late 2017, Pastor Bob began an interview style podcast called "The Kingdom Cross Roads Podcast." On this podcast, Pastor Bob interviews Christians from various walks of life on how they use their Faith to achieve success. Authors, recording artists, business CEO's, non-profit leaders and pastors and ministers frequent the show and provide amazing insight to build your faith. In only 3 years time, The KCR Podcast has published almost 900 episodes and Pastor Bob conducted over 700 interviews!

In early 2018, in response to the lack of any Christian themed podcast hosting platform in the market place, Pastor Bob coordinated with the iconic Mark Asquith and his team, with the result being "FaithCasters.net." A "Christian podcast hosting and marketing company created by Christians for Christians."

Due to the immense success Pastor Bob has achieved in the online ministry world, he is often asked by others "How to start a podcast." Not wanting to refer Christian brothers and sisters back into the world for help in establishing a Christian themed podcast, he started to develop the "Podcast-Training" platform offered through our ministry. He conducts training on a weekly basis to assist others in the development of their own personal podcast as well as ministry related podcasts that can air on Evangelism Radio.

Now, he has placed all of this information under one website location, "Podcasters for Christ." This makes it easier for other Christians to find the services they need in one spot rather than having to visit several different websites.
