God DOES hear and answer prayer!!!

Do you believe . . . I mean REALLY BELIEVE . . . in the truth that God actually hears the prayers and the cries of His children? And if you believe that God HEARS, do you REALLY BELIEVE that He is moved by your prayers and actually responds?

WE BELIEVE IT!!! And yet, we are just beginning to understand and experience the miraculous power of prayer!

Not only because God’s Word says it (though that is enough!), we are living witnesses of the fact that prayer is powerful AND effective!

Allow these verses from God’s Word to sink in. Ask the Holy Spirit to enable you to believe enough to begin a disciplined and obedient prayer life: (New Living Bible)“I also tell you this: If two of you agree here on earth concerning anything you ask, my Father in heaven will do it for you.” Matthew 18:19“You can pray for anything, and if you have faith, you will receive it.” Matthew 21:22“I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours.” Mark 11:24“You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father.” John 14:13“But if you remain in me and my words remain in you, you may ask for anything you want, and it will be granted!” John 15:7“You didn’t choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name.” John 15:16“At that time you won’t need to ask me for anything. I tell you the truth, you will ask the Father directly, and he will grant your request because you use my name.” John 16:23
“If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking.” James 1:5

I don’t believe that any ‘earthly man’ has written it better than the great man of prayer, E.M. Bounds:
“How vast are the possibilities of prayer! How wide is its reach! What great things are accomplished by this divinely appointed means of grace! It lays its hand on Almighty God and moves him to do what he would not otherwise do if prayer was not offered. It brings things to pass which would never otherwise occur. The story of prayer is the story of great achievements. Prayer is a wonderful power placed by Almighty God in the hands of his saints, which may be used to accomplish great purposes and to achieve unusual results. Prayer reaches to everything, takes in all things great and small which are promised by God to the children of men. The only limit to prayer are the promises of God and his ability to fulfill those promises. ‘Open thy mouth wide and I will fill it’.”
“Prayer is a direct address to God. ‘In everything let your requests be made known unto God.’ Prayer secures blessings, and makes men better because it reaches the ear of God. Prayer is only for the betterment of men when it has affected God and moved him to do something for men. Prayer affects men by affecting God. Prayer moves men because it moves God to move men. Prayer influences men by influencing God to influence them. Prayer moves the hand that moves the world.”

I trust that by now, you understand the passion of our hearts and the call of the Gospel:
“Jesus is the Answer!” and the only way for EVERY need for EVERY person;
Every human being MUST receive Jesus Christ by faith as his/her Savior in order to receive the free gift of eternal salvation and enter into personal relationship with God while alive on this earth;
The ‘call’ of Jesus upon every believer is to be ‘fishers of men’ and be effective and powerful witnesses who reach people with the salvation message.
My heart and desire is to help you, motivate you and implore you, as well as the church, to return to the basics of the Gospel and make your daily obsession to bring men and women, teens and boys and girls to the cross of Christ!

The first step is prayer! I challenge you right now to ask God to give you at least 1 person you are close to who does not know the Lord Jesus as his or her Savior to come to Him very soon! Right now, will you bow your head and pray for that person?! Will you commit to pray every day until he or she receives the Lord?! Will you send us the name of that person so we can join you in prayer for their salvation?! This will be exciting and you will see just what God can do! Don’t worry about the ‘how’, just concern yourself with prayer. The ‘how’ will come on the journey. Will you, right now, bow and ask the Lord to enable you to bear the ‘fruit’ of 1 lost soul for His glory?! It will change your life!!!

E.M. Bounds: “Prayer possibilities open doors for the entrance of the gospel: “Withal praying also for us that God would open to us a door of utterance.” Prayer opened for the apostles doors of utterance, created opportunities and made openings to preach the gospel. The appeal by prayer was to God, because God was moved by prayer. God was thereby moved to do his own work in an enlarged way and by new ways. Prayer possibility gives not only great power, and opens doors to the gospel, but it gives facility as well to the gospel. Prayer makes the gospel to go fast and to move with glorious swiftness. A gospel projected by the mighty energies of prayer is neither slow, lazy nor dull. It moves with God’s power, with God’s radiance and with angelic swiftness.”

This is just the beginning. As the Lord allows, I want to help you step by step, learn to be used of the Lord to reach lost people you know, who will absolutely go to hell if they die without Jesus!

Prayer is the beginning. Prayer for yourself and your relationship with the Lord and then prayer for the lost – specifically naming those who you want to see come to Him before it is to late. Will you pray? Will you allow us to pray with you? It will be exciting to see what God will do!!!

We need to share with you the answer to your prayers on our behalf. Once again, the Lord miraculously, and in the last hour, provided for rent. The Lord moved upon many people’s hearts and they obediently responded and sacrificially gave in order that this need would be met. O how we praise the Lord! Some gifts were large and some were small, but all were significant and such a blessing!!! The Lord is truly giving us our ‘daily bread.’ Friends in our church have provided food, our neighbor has shared from her garden, another neighbor has given food and money and checks have come in the mail – even one came by FedEx from back east! This is all in answer to fervent prayer! Thank you!!!
The Apostle Paul cried out in Ephesians 6:18-20, “And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints. Pray also for me, that whenever I open my mouth, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.”

Please keep praying for us! Pray that we would be effective witnesses each day as well as a loud voice to the church as we make every effort to call them back to the priority of the gospel!

O Lord, Glorify Yourself at our Expense,

Evangelist Ken & Diane Ramey
