Encourage One Another

Pray focus week 8 (Sunday-Shabbat)

        It is amazing ALL that our Lord did THIS week.  In the last two weeks, He has answered in incredible ways. I encourage you to meditate on these miracles – allow these to build your faith – to encourage you. “Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing,” I Thes 5:11, NIV.

Scriptures upon which to meditate:
o   If we do not quit, we will see victory! “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up,” Gal 6:9, NIV.
o   Daniel’s prayers were heard the first day, but it took 21 days for him to get a breakthrough. We also must continue to pray, fast, and seek God. “At that time I, Daniel, mourned [fasted and prayed] for three weeks. I ate no choice food; no meat or wine touched my lips; and I used no lotions at all until the three weeks were over … “Do not be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day that you set your mind to gain understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard,” Daniel 10:2-3; 12b, NIV.
