Welcome to the Determined to Dance podcast with your host, Jennifer Hallmark. Today's episode, Ordinary Life: Praying Through Obstacles, focuses on how time spent in prayer, both talking to and listening to God, is imperative when obstacles block our way. Are you ready? The world would have us march to its chaotic beat but God invites us to dance in His will and His way. Let's take a moment to be energized, refreshed, and motivated to face the day, one spin and twirl at a time. Show notes: Ordinary Life: Praying Through Obstacles Recently, I read an article at guideposts.org that encouraged me. Praying Through Your Problems by Bob Hostetler. He reminded me of that old-time expression. Stay at the altar until you pray through. Until you feel released to move forward. Until the peace of God envelops you and you know that no matter the outcome, God's got this. Not a regimented routine. If I'm dancing, I want to become one with my dance partner. I know the way they move and twirl and even stop, by spending time with them. Sure, I can study the dance and practice over and over and do okay. But if I understand the person, I'll always dance better. The same is true about praying through. It's not praying the same words over and over. It's spending time with God, talking AND listening, reading His word, listening for His very heartbeat as we pour out our requests to Him. Perseverance. It's not letting go. Jacob learned this when he wrestled with God until daybreak (Genesis 32). He'd cheated and taken shortcuts; never fully hearing God out. But this night, he stuck with it. He decided to hold on for dear life and listen, then put in his request for a blessing. He received a name change and a new direction, even though he was left with a limp. Praying through will cost you and it's always important to count the cost. It can be days, months, even years of seeking God. I prayed two specific prayers off and on for three years. This past May, I felt God say to trust Him with these requests of my heart. Now, when I see something that worries me regarding the request, I go back to that day where I journaled and know that I prayed through. To pray through, you have to empty yourself. Like David in the Psalms, you'll need to be totally honest with God. Express your sadness, anger, disappointment, and any other emotion that goes with your prayers. You have to give it to God by being transparent. Your belief. Many times, we need to pray through because we really don't know God in a specific area and what His word says. Faith comes through hearing His word so we'll need to immerse ourselves in the promises in the Bible until they take root in our hearts. This is an important time to remember. Fear has tried to grab hold of me as I contemplate surgery. Again. I mean, I just had ankle surgery in December of 2020. My recovery then was slower than I hoped and my patience ran thin. But I did get through it. And saw the faithfulness of God again in so many ways. I was comforted so I could comfort others. I learned to write short articles in the waiting rooms. I read several writing craft books that are helping me today. God was faithful then and He'll be faithful now. I'll continue to pour out my needs during this season and I'll listen intently, writing words and phrases and direction as it comes. I'll pray through. God is everything I need. He is enough, even when larger-than-life obstacles block my way. Let's pray: Father God, we come to You today with our focus on You. Thank You for letting me pour out my requests. Help me to hear each word You say by being still and leaning close. Your presence is all I need as I pray through to Your heart. In Jesus' name, I pray, amen. It's time to pray through our problems and know that God has never left the throne. Next week, we'll look at the way God lifts us over obstacles as we release them to Him. Until then, stay determined to dance. Links:

If David was named a man after God's own heart yet still needed accountability, how much more do we need it in our own lives? That's why we're praying this week for our kids to have mentors and friends (i.e. Nathans) who point them to truth when their actions don't line up with God's word. Accountability is not only important for our kids now, but also as they leave our homes one day and need truth spoken into their marriages, finances, and careers. It's so easy to be influenced by the norms of our culture, making accountability incredibly important from people who will say what we need to hear and not always what we want to hear. Only after Nathan confronted David about his sin with Bathsheba did David confess and repent making his relationship right with God. It was in the blind spots of his sin where God placed accountability in David's life. It's those same blindspots where we will be praying accountability for our kids both today and all of their days this side of heaven.
On hearing that it was Jesus of Nazareth, Bartimaeus began to cry out and say, “Jesus, son of David, have pity on me.” Mark 10:47These words from Bartimaeus, the blind man, present us with the perfect prayer for a few reasons.First, this prayer reveals the deep humility of Bartimaeus. By praying this prayer, Bartimaeus expresses the fact that he knew Jesus was the source of what he needed and that he was unable to help himself. Bartimaeus knew that he was weak but that Jesus was perfect strength. Thus, Bartimaeus humbly turned to Jesus in his need, recognizing Him as the source.Second, it is a prayer that cries for “pity.” Pity is the feeling of sorrow and compassion caused by the suffering of others. Pity is mercy and is the form of love given to one by another who has no need of giving it. In this prayer, Bartimaeus asks the all-powerful Lord to show him kindness and mercy, even though he is unworthy of such a gift. This prayer reveals the fact that Bartimaeus knew he was undeserving of help from our Lord, but he cried out for it anyway in the hope that Jesus would help. And, indeed, He does.Third, this prayer reveals a certain and deep passion. It is not just a request for God's help; rather, it is a cry for help. It's a plea and a form of begging. It's an opening up of one's soul to God, without concern of displaying one's own weaknesses or worry that others will witness it or what they'll think. This shows the depth of the blind man's prayer. Reflect, today, upon these three lessons from Bartimaeus' short prayer. We must be humble, beg for mercy, and do so with deep passion and longing. Praying this way will most certainly dispose us to the grace and mercy of God.Lord, Jesus, Son of David, have pity on me. I do humbly beg You with all my heart for Your mercy and compassion. Though I am unworthy, I seek Your grace and trust in Your goodness. Jesus, I trust in You.Source of content: catholic-daily-reflections.comCopyright © 2021 My Catholic Life! Inc. All rights reserved.

Fr. Josh answers questions about experiencing confusion and doubts discerning one's vocation, and why taking the morning after pill is a serious sin, but a sin that God forgives through the sacrament of Reconciliation because there is no sin that God doesn't forgive in confession. Snippet From the Show "My Lord God, I have no idea where I am going. I do not see the road ahead of me. I cannot know for certain where it will end. Nor do I really know myself, and the fact that I think that I am following your will does not mean that I am actually doing so. But I believe that the desire to please you does in fact please you."

In this episode, Paul Miller, Jon Hori, Bob Allums and Liz Voboril continue the A Praying Church series with "Seeing the Saints." "Historians call the 1500s the century of the Bible. And part of that love for scripture meant moving the sermon to the center of the worship service on Sunday morning and communion became quarterly. There were many good parts to that, but practically, someone had to give the sermon and that was the preacher. That created the problem that has bedeviled the protestant church for 500 years: the celebrity preacher." "The Apostle Paul views the saints kind of like getting an old antique. You can see the beauty in it. It needs to be cleaned and polished, but you can see that glow there." "This saints category is an incredibly encouraging way of looking at yourself and other people – it's so freeing. I think what the gospel does for our heart, the saints category does for your ministry and your relationships. You can begin to see people through a resurrection lens because you are resurrected. You're on a hunt for resurrection in their hearts because you know that they have experienced that same thing. It transforms the whole way you look at the church, the way you look at the body of Christ, how you pray, when you pray. In some ways, it's the final piece that brings a praying church together."
Episode 433 - Show NotesOne of the parables Jesus told was about a widow who was being oppressed and he needed a judge to come to her aid. She needed justice. The story is found Luke 18. Jesus had a clear purpose in telling this story. Verse one says, “Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up.”I've heard people say that if you ask God for something more than once it means that you don't have faith. If you prayed once, you should just trust God for the answer. But in this story, we learn that Jesus is teaching us to always pray and not give up. So, theologically, I'm in the camp of praying until the answer comes. I hope you are too.Speaking of the judge verse 4 continues the story… “For some time he refused. But finally, he said to himself, ‘Even though I don't fear God or care what people think, yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will see that she gets justice, so that she won't eventually come and attack me!'” And the Lord said, “Listen to what the unjust judge says. And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?”Jesus gave us this parable to teach us about the way God responds to our prayer. He concludes the story by saying to us: “If a wicked, selfish judge would respond to this woman's request, how much more will our loving and faithful God respond to our requests?”We know that God answers prayer according to his will. We often do not know God's will in a particular situation, so we continue to pray and believe. In God's time he will answer.Whatever burden you are carrying, give it to God in prayer. Don't give up. God is not offended by your persistence in prayer. On the contrary, our persistence is a demonstration of our faith. God will answer in his time and according to his will.5Minute Discipleship.com
Welcome to our brand new series on the basics of PRAYER! I'm so excited to share this series with you because I believe in the power of prayer…and more importantly, I believe that God wants to answer your prayers! But first, it's important that we know how to pray effectively and according to God's Word. Jesus said in John 16:24… “ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.” Prayer should result in receiving what you prayed for AND great joy! Praying this way, God's way, will change your Christian life…and it should also change the lives of others! If you are a seasoned pray-er, new to prayer or just discouraged or bored with prayer, this series is for you! I believe God wants to stir up in you a passion to pray. Today, let's get the basics of prayer together! (If you're following along in my brand new workbook “Getting A Grip On The Basics of Prayer,” this lesson is from Chapters 1 & 2: Prayer Basics and 10 Common Questions About Prayer.) Hungry for more? We've got the table set for you. Visit thebasicswithbeth.com to binge the basics on your favorite platforms: podcasts, YouTube, online bible courses, books and more.
Rev. Nabil Nour of Trinity Lutheran, Hartford, SD joins host Rev. Brady Finnern to study and pray Psalm 11. David prays this Psalm like the children's song, “I am weak but He is strong.” He book-ends this psalm filling us with the identity of the LORD as our refuge and our righteousness. Although the LORD is in His temple, on His throne in heaven, it does not mean He is not graciously sustaining us in every moment. We see our God, Immanuel, who proves that He is with us to the end as our foundation and we will one day be with Him face to face. “Lord God, help us pray. We trust in You as our refuge and our righteousness, for when we are weak but You are strong. Lord help us. Amen”
Scripture For Today:Job 33:26“…then that person can pray to God and find favor with him, they will see God's face and shout for joy; he will restore them to full well-being.”Tune Into God pt 1Sometimes, when I'm sharing something the Lord has shown me, either in His Word, or in a dream, etc., I'll have some pastor or someone smart off and say something like, “I'd be awful careful saying “the Lord said” something. You never know if it's the Lord or some devil trying to trick you… When I hear something like that, it takes all of my effort to not grab him by the shirt collar and yell in his face, HAVE FAITH IN GOD, MAN! And that is what we will be studying about these next few days. Not only having faith IN God, but learning how to TUNE INTO what God is saying. Amen! Turn with me to 2 Corinthians chapter one verses 19-20… For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us—by me and Silas[https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2+Corinthians+1%3A19-20&version=NIV#fen-NIV-28820a (a)] and Timothy—was not “Yes” and “No,” but in him it has always been “Yes.” 20 For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God. First of all, let me emphasize, that God is not a respecter of persons. What He does for one person, He will do for every person….we have His promise on that. So, why doesn't He answer the prayers of every person…? It is up to US to get our Faith “tuned into” His Word. Let me explain it using this example. You have a radio sitting on your desk. It is turned off. You hear nothing over the radio. Does that mean there is NO radio station broadcasting? NO. It just means you do not have your radio turned on. Radio stations are continually broadcasting over the airwaves. Now, you turn your radio on. But all you get is static. Does this mean there are no radio stations broadcasting? NO. It just means you have to “tune” into a station to hear the broadcast. If you tune into a station that is broadcasting “Rock” and you wanted to hear “Country and Western,” you will be disappointed. You MUST tune into the station you want to hear. Do you listen to “Rock” and “Country and Western” at the same time and on the same station? NO. Each station has a particular “band width” they are broadcasting on. You must “tune” into the appropriate “band width” in order to hear what you desire to listen to. The same thing happens with God. God is here, talking to us through His Holy Spirit, all of the time. We just have to “tune in” to what He is saying. If we leave our spiritual “ears” turned off – we miss what He is telling us to do in order to be Blessed. If we are listening to the devil or the world instead of listening to God, we miss what He is telling us to do. We are tuned into the wrong station! If you're tuned into God – you are tuned and turned on to God! Amen! We'll take it up here tomorrow! Let's Pray! Until next time, this is Pastor Bob Thibodeau reminding you from 1 Thessalonians 5:17 in the Living Bible to “Always Keep on Praying!” Be blessed in all that you do!

What we believe about ourselves informs virtually every aspect of our daily walk in this world and with Jesus. If we don't continually ground our identity in the Lord, we begin searching for identity in the things of this world. Paul Tripp says it this way: “Identity amnesia leads to identity replacement.” Join us this week as we not only pray identity over our kids, but also address some of the lies they believe about their value. Here's a few identity reminders as you get started praying over your kids: You are valued- Matthew 6:26 You are forgiven- 2 Chronicles 7:15 You have hope- Exodus 14:14 You are known- Jeremiah 1:6 You have purpose- Ephesians 2:10 I can't wait for us to spend a few minutes considering God's word on identity and ways to remind our kids of who and whose they are.
