Prayer Thought: Enthralled in His Presence

Prayer Thought: Enthralled in His Presence “He brought me out into a spacious place; He rescued me because He delighted in me (Ps. 18:19)” “Delight yourself in the LORD and He will give you the desires of your heart (Ps. 37:4)” The Advanced English Dictionary’s simplest definition of the word delight is; “to give pleasure to or, to be pleasing to.” But I prefer to define delight as a verb; “To hold spellbound. To enchant, enrapture, transport, enthrall, ravish.”  When was the last time you could remember being spellbound by God’s presence? Enraptured? Enthralled? Transported? God delights in us with …

Prayer Thought: Remember to Remember

Prayer Thought: Remember to Remember “Worship is forgetting about what’s wrong with you and remembering what’s right with God.” -Mark Batterson Remember, remember, remember! How good is your memory? Are you better at remembering your sins and screw-ups, or do you recall your successes and encouraging moments more frequently? Either way, what we remember says a LOT about who we are and Whose we are as Christians. Paul David Tripp has this wonderful quote that I wish I could rehearse every day, every hour, and sometimes every 10 minutes. He says, “No one is more influential in your life than …

Prayer Thought: A Truly Satisfied Heart. “I am convinced that wise planning is good. But plans, like material possessions, must always be held loosely.

In fact, when I finally get around to telling you (cause I know the suspense is just killing you😊), most of you will react by saying something like, “Well duh!!!” OK, are you ready for the BIG REVEAL? Drum roll please. I, Clay Elliott, like fashion. I know, I …

Prayer Thought: Moving On: Getting Past a Life Filled with Guilt and Unforgiveness

Prayer Thought: Moving On: Getting Past a Life Filled with Guilt and Unforgiveness “Forgiveness is God’s invention for coming to terms with a world in which people are unfair to each other and hurt each other deeply. He began by forgiving us. And He invites us all to forgive each other. Forgiving does not usually happen at once. It is a process, sometimes a long one, especially when it comes to wounds gouged deep. And we must expect some lapses…some people seem to manage to finish off forgiving in one swoop of the heart. But when they do, you can …

Prayer Thought: That’ll Preach

Prayer Thought: That’ll Preach “When Christ is my hope, He becomes the one thing in which I have confidence. I act on His wisdom and bank on His grace. I trust His promises and I rely on His presence. And I pursue all the good things that He has promised me simply because I trust Him. So, I am not manipulating, controlling, or threatening my way through life to get what I want, because I have found what I want in Christ. He is my hope.” -Paul David Tripp Oddly enough, four years ago was the first time in my …
