2.         You should begin your prayers with thanksgiving.

Nehemiah 11:17 in the New King James version says:

“. . the leader who began the thanksgiving in prayer. .”

3.         Continually write down and sing about what you’re thankful for.

Building A Tabernacle Of Prayer For You

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in Harold's Blogs

“Set up the Tabernacle on the first day of the new year for you.”
Exodus 40:2 (NLT; personalized)
 
In a very special moment. . .God directed my fine wife Bev and I to establish a tabernacle of prayer on New Year’s Day for you and other partners of this ministry.
 
I firmly believe that Exodus 40:2 is meant to open a door of abundance for you in 2015.  That’s why I am sending you this email.  Please let us have your specific prayer requests. (See Philippians 4:6).
 
Even though I may not be with you personally. . .God very clearly and directly told me how I was to build a tabernacle of prayer for you on New Year’s Day.

Are You One Of The 24 Prayer Elders?

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in Harold's Blogs

Below is the text form a special email I sent this morning concerning 24 hours of Prayer on January 24th. I have also included the audio from my RichThoughts for Breakfast call from January 21st: Are You One of the 24? Audio.

It was 1:45 AM when I awakened from a deep sleep ... and “Day Of Prayer” was stirring in my spirit.

My first thought was God was directing me to build another Tabernacle of Prayer as I did on January 1, 2010 ... but He allowed me to drift back off to sleep without fully getting His instructions as to what He wanted me to do.

7 Reasons Poverty Is Nothing But Trouble

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in Harold's Blogs

It just doesn’t make any sense.

Over the years, I’ve heard a number of people say that poverty is holy.

These people have given poverty a spiritual badge of honor.  They said that prosperity is evil. . .which, by the way, is an unscriptural statement since God delights in the prosperity of His children.

Psalm 35:27 says:

“Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the Lord be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.”

Despite this and other scriptures to the contrary. . .there are some who have made poverty an acceptable lifestyle.

God Was Glorified and The Devil Terrified in Porto Alegre, Brazil

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in Harold's Blogs

Wow! No other word seems appropriate in describing our Financial Deliverance Conference at Revival Center for the Nations in Porto Alegre, Brazil.

The last night of the conference (Sunday, Jun 24th) was the most amazing meeting that I've ever been in. It started at 8 PM and ended after midnight. I believe these photographs tell the story. Thank you for your support of this trip and the ministry.

When And Where Do Miracles Manifest

Before we get into this teaching. . .we think you may need 2 Timothy 2:7 in the Classic Amplified Bible as a spiritual appetizer.

2 Timothy 2:7 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)

“Think over these things I am saying [understand them and grasp their application], for the Lord will grant you full insight and understanding in everything.”

Our prayer as you read this teaching is for you to have His insight and understanding on the revelation were about to share.

Did you know there are seven traditional names of Jehovah? Most people can quote the names and tell you what they mean.

There is Jehovah Jirah, Jehovah Rapha, Jehovah- nissi, Jehovah Shalom, Jehovah Ra’ah, Jehovah Tsidkenu and Jehovah Shamma.

We have been taught that these are the seven names of God. We even have songs about them but the truth is only three of these are actual names of Jehovah.

Jehovah Rapha is a name we find in Exodus 15:26 where God says:

This Will Cause God To Not Answer Your Prayers

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

This teaching may not seem at first to be a Father’s Day teaching but I assure you. . .it is. Too many children have become estranged from their Father because of offense in their childhood or adult years.

If you’ve faced such a separation from your father. . .this teaching is for you.

I was reading a book when I came across a powerful quote by Pastor Joel Osteen who said:

“Every day we have plenty of opportunities to get angry, stressed or offended. But what you're doing when you indulge these negative emotions is giving something outside yourself power over your happiness. You can choose to not let little things upset you.”

Have you ever had someone say something to you that cut you to the quick? Something that wounded you deeply even though you knew they were wrong in their assessment.

I had such an experience and it wasn’t fun. . .it fact, it hurt me very deeply.

This person is someone for whom I’d done many things for over the years. . .made decisions and suggestions that literally made them millions of dollars.

7 Ways To Experience Living Faith

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

What is your faith? When people ask that question. . .many expect you to say the church, denomination or a religion you align yourself with.

Are you Protestant, Catholic, Jewish, Muslim etc?

If you view faith as an organization. . .then I would say your faith is at best misplaced and most probably … dead.

What are the characteristics of dead faith?

First, dead faith is merely head knowledge.

Intellectual agreement by itself is tragically inadequate.

James 2:19 in the New Living Translation says:

7 Keys When Facing The Adversities Of Life

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

Have you ever been in a serious thunderstorm. . .or maybe even a hurricane or tornado?

I’ve never been in a tornado but I have been through some dangerous hurricanes and many serious thunderstorms.

During our time in Texas. . .it was not unusual to have thunderstorms with 60-70 mile-an-hour winds and frequent lightning strikes. I remember one storm where there were over 1,000 lighting strikes in an hour.

When serious storms come up. . .we’re looking for a safe place.

How would you react if you were in the middle of the sea when a violent storm arose?

Mark 4:37 in the Classic Amplified Bible says:

“And a furious storm of wind [of hurricane proportions] arose, and the waves kept beating into the boat, so that it was already becoming filled.”

The disciples and Jesus were crossing the Sea of Galilee when a violent storm began to rage. The disciples were frightened, fearful and faithless in the midst of what they perceived to be a potentially, deadly situation.

Here are seven keys when facing the adversities of life.

7 Ways To Possess God's Promises

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

God’s promises should be our expectation.

Say this with me. . .

God’s promises are my expectation.

God’s promises are my expectation for every new day.

All God’s promises are in written form in His Word, the Bible, which is the divine authentic revelation of the divine mind and purpose.

The written form of the promises becomes a promissory note. . .a written promise to fulfill a declared benefit for each one of God’s children.

One scholar says the Scripture contains 30,000 promises related to every believer.

But, truthfully, knowing the Bible holds thousands of promises is not enough.

Here’s the real question. . .

Effectively Dealing With Your Problems

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

I will always remember the first person who said to me. . .you don’t know the problems I’ve got.

I said, “you’re right and I don’t want to know.”

It’s not that I wasn’t compassionate about his situation … but I knew I had to provoke this man’s thinking because his focus was on his problems and not his solution.

I told him that circumstances are defined as the circle you’re standing in . . . but if you’re moving from glory unto glory. . .you will be leaving your circumstances and problems behind.

Then I shared with him Romans 8:26 in The Living Bible which says:

“And in the same way—by our faith—the Holy Spirit helps us with our daily problems and in our praying. For we don’t even know what we should pray for nor how to pray as we should, but the Holy Spirit prays for us with such feeling that it cannot be expressed in words.”

I’m not sure why this event came to my remembrance, but it prompted me to share with you four ways to deal with whatever problems you’re facing.

First, you can run away from your problem.
