Key Verse: 1 Samuel 1:10
And she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed to the Lord and wept in anguish.
PRAYER FOR TODAY:
Lord Jesus, I pray, as Your disciples asked You, “Lord, increase our [my] faith!” Your response to this request called for some “fervent” action on the part of the “learners” from You. Please grant me the grace to put into practice Your means of increasing my faith (read Luke 17:1-10).
100 PERSONAL WORDS:
I’ve just gone back to my blog from last September when I did a paragraph on Luke 17. Understanding Jesus’ answer to the “increase our faith” petition can teach us much. I thought it was worth repeating, and I need the reminder regularly (here is a link back to that blog posting).
Eli, the Priest, thought Hannah was drunk. I’ve seen drunken people, particularly as a Pastor. I’ve never been drunk with an alcoholic substance, and I don’t intend to ever find out what it’s like. However, I’m sure I’ve had the symptoms from time to time in the anguish of strong intercessory prayer. I’ve been overcome with powerful emotions as I have identified with the crushing hurts of humanity. This is good! This kind of prayer “avails much.” Jesus, Himself, while praying in the Garden of Gethsemane, “being in anguish, prayed more earnestly” (Luke 22:44). The result was that in His humanity He received the strength to endure the Cross. Hallelujah!
Yours to help us all learn and practice strong intercession,
I have not been receiving your blogs from Sunday. They seem to be quite erratic. I send them all over the world . Blessings
This happens to me quite often. I can access the blog through other means but it does get rather frustrating. I have it for a few days then don’t get it…etc
Shirley and Samuel allow me to share how I have been receiving the Blog daily. I have kept a Crossroads Newsletter,dated June 15,2012 which shows the 100 Words Daily Blog advertisement as NEW In my e-mail box . So all I have to do is Click on it. You may have a Crossroads Newsletter with such advertisement in your files? Of course you have to keep it as NEW ???? I wish all a very blessed day. Eraine
I get the blog most days. Today X 2 ! But that’s okay. I don’t use it. I put http://www.100words.ca in my search or address line. Then the blog comes in a larger font! I just recently found out that I can just “speak” to my Smartphone & it brings it right up. I can also forward it on.
I so enjoy your posts as I follow your study of the Bible. I have not received posts for Sunday or Monday. When I go to the web page I am unable to re- subscribe. How can I do this? Gods blessing to all of you.
Please try to re-subscribe now. The issue has been fixed.
I said the same prayer as you today it is good to be reminded. The words God gave for our church this year is Ignite In Prayer. I pray for you David that God will heal you completely and give you the strength you need
in Jesus name amen
I can do all things through Christ who Strengthens me Phil 4:13
Renold I love the pictures you take and put on our blog
Amen to the above!!…sometimes the blog does not come but mostly it is on time…
Thank you Pastor David, I love the way you explain the passages each day. I needed reassurance that the more fervently we pray the Lord hears and answers us. I am sure most of us need that reassurance, as like me they have probably been praying for many years, for family and friends to accept the Lord Jesus as their Saviour. Bless you,David, Norma Jean, your dear family and all bloggers today.
Ps Remembering Msry and her husband in prayer for complete healing .
Sorry should have read Mary
I was off the email list but am back on again. Thank you! I was lost without the daily 100 words.
Thank you for posting today’s blog into my “inbox”.
I prayed with you Pastor David. Yes, Lord increase my faith!!
Fervent prayer is what Jesus said was required in some instances. Its amazing how quickly “doubt” can enter in when we don’t see immediate results. Lord Jesus, I pray that we/I keep my eyes on you,
“Jesus the author and finisher of our/my faith” Heb: 12:2.
Always appreciate the links and the photos you post, Pastor David: Thank you Rev. Reynold Mainse for your excellent photography!
God bless everyone! The Lord is still looking for a reliable vehicle for me! Please pray for this to happen! Pray for Crystal who is working on finding me a good vehicle!

Bless the Mainse family, for David Mainse who puts this blog out daily! It is a joy to read his words and then the input from all the bloggers! I like that very much!
I so appreciate all the words that are written by all the bloggers!
God bless those who are dealing with a time change! Lord I ask that You would heal those who in need of healing, that You Lord would forgive all those who need forgiveness and I thank You Lord that You are OUR LORD ALMIGHTY! THE ALPHA AND OMEGA! THANK YOU LORD, WE LOVE YOU AMEN AMEN
Bless our choir practice tonight!
