BF Homework: Chapter 11

As we get into Chapter 11: The Obstacle of Prayerlessness, a lot of things can go through our minds and hearts regarding the topic. I think that we all know the benefits of prayer and the joy that comes from being in our Lord's presence, yet why don't we pray more?

I have realized that prayer indeed takes a lot of faith. To bend your knees and speak from your heart to someone you can't see and believe that He is listening and answering is an amazing thing. But I believe that what makes it amazing is also what can make it difficult. To bend your knees and submit your heart, will, and all to God rather than "do" can be hard but not impossible.

As parents, Hubby and I, want to leave a legacy to our children. And one main component is prayer. We want our children and their children's children to say, "No matter what happened, Papi and Mami prayed." We want them to have engraved memories in their spirits of us praying so that when they are fighting their own battles, they will know all they have to do is bend their knees to their Savior as well. We want them to experience the joy of His presence, the beauty of a surrendered spirit, the fortification received, and the glory promised all in prayer!

This week's assignment is a little different and yet I know and trust that because Holy Spirit speaks and guides, He knows what He's doing.


Spend some time praying for another person.
After you have prayed for this person, write them a letter regarding what Holy Spirit put in your heart regarding them during prayer.
Give them the letter.

We'll gather on Monday, God willing, to share what we discovered from this experience. Feel free to share as much or as little from what you learned, your prayer, your letter.

I am believing God for a supernatural breakthrough through this homework's assignment in many relationships so keep it in prayer.

Looking forward to prayer time!

  1. THIS IS VERY INTERESTING! I READ THIS RECENTLY AND THAT VERSE STOOD OUT TO ME. IT IS AMAZING THE RELATIONSHIP THAT DAVID AND JONATHAN HAD. JONATHAN WAS FAITHFUL TO HIS FATHER AND HIS FATHER'S KINGDOM ALL THE WAY TO DEATH, HOWEVER HE NEVER FOUGHT AGAINST GOD'S WILL. HE WILLINGLY SURRENDER HIMSELF AND HE AND DAVID TRULY LEFT A LEGACY IN THE BIBLE OF A TRUE FRIENDSHIP. I AM EXCITED FOR ALL YOU INVOLVED IN THIS ASSIGNMENT. GOD IS GOOD!

  2. Prayer not only takes faith but also time. We must understand that prayer is definately not a waste of time. When we bow our will and emotions to the authority of God we are demonstrating to Him that we believe Him and what He did for us at the cross!
