Mary Kom thanks Jesus for her OlympicSuccess

"I want to say sorry to the people of India that I could not win gold or silver,"
said M C Mary Kom soon after her much-hyped bout with Nicola Adams which went 11-6 in the Great Britain boxer’s favor.

 "The support I received from people back home was overwhelming,"
she said.

 "All I can say is that I tried my hardest. But I am happy that I could get back at least a medal."
Mary praised her opponent Nicola for being astute in this key bout, if not technically superior.

"She was clever in the way she blocked punches and made hers count on the computer system."

A capacity crowd saw the two most popular boxers in the tournament square up for a place in the final.

"I landed punches too, but the computer did not seem to be buzzing,"
she added, somewhat jocularly.

 "In this system it is not the power which counts, but only those punches which according to judges score points.
 "But this is sport, and sometimes things don’t go the way you expect them.

 But I thank Jesus for getting me this far.
It’s been a 12 year struggle to get into the Olympics, and I am happy to have realized my dream,"
said Mary.

A capacity crowd saw the two most popular boxers in the tournament square up for a place in the final. Even some fans, who looked distinctly non-Indian, were rooting for Mary showing how her appeal cuts across nationalities and race.

The fight was a low-scoring one with both boxers wary of the other’s prowess.
Mary was the more aggressive of the two in approach, but Nicola was more composed and used her reach to good advantage.

Mary, as is well-known, was fighting in a higher weight category (51kg) from the one in which she has won five world titles (48) kg only because she was determined to be in the greatest sports show on earth. She said she is now keen to return home to her five-year-old twins.

(Pastors Praying for Mary)

"They are missing me and I am missing them even more,"
said Mary.

Travailing in Prayer

The Ignition For Revival - Prayer

The Fear Of Potent Prayer

I fear the prayers of John Knox more than all the assembled armies of Europe.
Mary, Queen of Scots.

The First Sign Of Revival

When God intends great mercy for His people, the first thing He does is to set them a-praying.
Matthew Henry, quoted by Arthur Wallis, In the Day of Thy Power

Spiritual Awakenings Always Begin By Prayer

From the Day of Pentecost, there has not been one great spiritual awakening in any land which has not begun in a union of prayer, though only among two or three; no such outward, upward movement has continued after such prayer meetings have declined.
A.T. Pierson, quoted by Arthur Wallis, In the Day of Thy Power

Prevailing Prayer

Prevailing or effectual prayer is that prayer which attains the blessing that it seeks.
It is that prayer which effectually moves God. The very idea of effectual prayer is that it effects its objects.
Charles Finney, quoted by Oswald J. Smith, The Revival We Need, p27

Pray For A Revival

“Oh! men and brethren, what would this heart feel if I could but believe that there were some among you who would go home and pray for a revival of religion– men whose faith is large enough, and their love fiery enough to lead them from this moment to exercise unceasing intercessions that God would appear among us and do wondrous things here, as in the times of former generations.”

C. H. Spurgeon, Sermon: The Story of God's Mighty Acts

Asking is the rule of the kingdom

“Whether we like it or not, asking is the rule of the Kingdom. If you may have everything by asking in His Name, and nothing without asking, I beg you to see how absolutely vital prayer is.”
C. H. Spurgeon

Secret of the Welsh revival

Early in the Welsh Revival (1904) a Wiltshire evangelist visited the meetings at Ferndale. He stood up and said,
“Friends, I have journeyed into Wales with the hope that I may glean the secret of the Welsh Revival.”

In an instant Evan Roberts was on his feet, and with an uplifted arm towards the speaker he replied,
“My brother, there is no secret! Ask and ye shall receive!!
From an unpublished account of the Welsh Revival, quoted by Arthur Wallis, In the Day of Thy Power

The Prayer That Is Answered

When the glory of the Father
Is the goal of every prayer:
When before the throne in heaven
Our High Priest presents it there;
When the Spirit prompts the asking,
When the waiting heart believes:
The we know of each petition
Everyone who asks receives

Author unknown, quoted by Arthur Wallis, In the Day of Thy Power

Pray With All Your Might

“You must pray with all your might. That does not mean saying your prayers, or sitting gazing about in church or chapel with eyes wide open while someone else says them for you. It means fervent, effectual, untiring wrestling with God...This kind of prayer be sure the devil and the world and your own indolent, unbelieving nature will oppose. They will pour water on this flame.”

General William Booth

God Will Give You The Best

“God will either give you what you ask, or something far better.”
Robert Murray M'Cheyne

God's controversy

“God has no greater controversy with His people today than this, that with boundless promises to believing prayer, there are so few who actually give themselves unto intercession.”

“Wherever the Church is aroused and the world’s wickedness arrested, somebody has been praying.”
A.   T. Pierson

Spirit Of Grace And Supplication Precedes Revival

Jonathan Edwards comments that when God has something very great to accomplish for His church, it is His will that there should precede it the extraordinary prayers of His people,

quoting from Ezekiel 36:37 ¬ "I will yet for this be inquired of by the house of Israel, to do this for them." In Zechariah 12:10 it is revealed that, when God is about to accomplish great things for His church, He will begin by a remarkable pouring out of "the Spirit of grace and supplication."

It is the invariable constitution of the kingdom of heaven that blessings of great magnitude are not imparted except to prayers of the deepest urgency.
Errol Hulse

Inspiration From Past Revival Prayers

Do we know a prayerfulness like that of Luther, who once said,
“I have so much business to do today that I shall not be able to get through it with less than three hours’ prayer.”

 It is John Angel James who said
 “we are weak in the pulpit because weak in the closet.”

 Edward Payson thus writes to a brother minister:
 “Prayer is the first thing, the second thing, and the third thing necessary for a minister, especially if he have revivals. Pray, then, my dear brother, pray, pray, pray.”

And Rev. Wm. Reid, in his admirable “Words to Winners of Souls,” speaks thus to his brethren:
“Why is there so little anxiety to get time to pray?

Why is there so little forethought in the laying out of time and employments, so as to secure a large portion of each day for prayer?

Why is there so much speaking yet so little prayer?

Why is there so much running to and fro, yet so little prayer?

Why so much bustle and business, yet so little prayer?

Why so many meetings with our fellow men, yet so few meetings with God?

Why so little being alone, so little thirsting of the soul for the calm, sweet hours of unbroken solitude, when God and his child hold fellowship together, as if they could never part?

It is this want that not only injures our own growth in grace, but makes us such unprofitable servants of Christ.”
Henry Fish, Handbook of Revivals, Chapter 19: Are You Revived?

Satan Trembles When We Pray

The one concern of the devil is to keep Christians from praying. He fears nothing from prayerless studies, prayerless work, and prayerless religion.
He laughs at our toil, mocks at our wisdom, but trembles when we pray.

Bro Yesanna

Bro. Yesanna - the Founder and President of ‘Hosanna Ministries’ is a God chosen vessel. He is endowed with several Spiritual gifts. He has been in the ministry since 40 years as a well known Preacher, Pastor, Singer and lyricist. He has planted more than 400 churches in Andhra Pradesh, Tamilnadu, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Goa and also one in South Africa. He is being used mightily by God both nationally and internationally. But his beginning was very humble which began in the midst of hardships and difficulties.
He was born in 1947 in Nellore district, Andhra Pradesh toTippalapudi Narasimhulu and Kamalamma. His father was a devoted Hindu whereas his mother Kamalamma was a Roman Catholic. Each time she delivered a baby; and in three days time the child would die. In similar way she had lost three of her five children.
After some time she was admitted in St. Joseph General Hospital Santhapet, Nellore District to deliver her 6th child. A baby boy was born to her on March 19, 1947. As the child was struggling to survive, on the 3rd day she went to Bishop William Bouter and poured out her anguish and grief before him. The bishop prayed for the boy and kept his name ‘Yesanna’ and prophesied that the boy would become a great man of God.
When Bro. Yesanna was 10 years old, he was possessed by demonic spirits and wandered in the streets of Nellore without having proper conscious mind. Due to this, his studies were terminated from 6th class. For Seven years he roamed as a mad man, vomiting blood, sleeping on footpaths, railway platforms and spent a very miserable life. In some occasions his condition forced him to eat the food at dust bins and garbage.
On the D-day 15th February, 1964, as Yesanna was wandering on the streets,without his knowing he was led to a Christian cottage meeting place enrouting his home.He was unmindful of what was happening to him there then.He went and sat inside and heard some worship songs. After the meeting was over, a very bright light shone on him while he was enrouting home at 11 PM .He saw the face of the Lord Jesus Christ in that dazzling light and got healed immediately and became a normal person.
That same night he went back to his home after seven years with sound mind. The next day he visited the Pastor where he went the previous night. The pastor explained clearly to Yesanna that Only the God of the Bible cured him and pointed two references from the Holy Bible, they are “For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost” - Luke 19:10 (NIV) and "Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest” Matt.11:28 (NIV). The Pastor gave him a Bible copy and from that time onwards Yesanna began to read the Bible continually, fasting and praying regularly.
In 1966 when he was 19 years old, God called him for the full time ministry. Being obedient to the call for God's service, Yesanna left his home, family and ministered in ‘The Pentecost’ church for several years. Later in 1977, he started a small church in a hut in Lemalle a remote village, Guntur District, Andhra Pradesh.
He had gone through many trials, tribulations and faced severe poverty in the early stages of his ministry. But God never left him alone in that condition. The ministry began to grow and several new churches were planted in various places.
Like Job said “when He has tested me, I will come forth as gold”. Now Bro. Yesanna is being used mightily by God both in India and abroad. He had visited and preached in South Korea, Holy land (Jerusalem), Italy, Egypt, Singapore, Malaysia, South Africa, America, Canada, Japan, Sweden, Dubai, Kuwait and many other countries.
