“Success” – Day 3 Lenten Season….


Joshua 1:8(KJV)

 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success”

“George Washington-Carver”

George Washington-Carver

 Raised on the farm, George Washington-Carver began to create his own medicines and had been known as the “Plant Doctor”. George Washington Carver, in his early life, had fallen in love with Mother Nature. Growing up he received an excellent high school education and made many attempts to apply to a lot of University’s. He was accepted to Simpson College in Iowa. He was more interested in science and agriculture, so he transferred to what is now, Iowa State University. In 1894, he distinguished himself in school, and upon graduation received an offer to work at the University. Carver was the first colored man to graduate as an honor student.  Later on in the years, Carver discovered 325 different ways to use peanuts in everything from cooking oil to printers’ ink.  He later discovered 300 products that were made from the Lowly Plant. With many developments and products, George Washington Carver continued to work with peanuts, sweet potatoes and pecans. Because of George Washington Carver’s inventions and discoveries, peanuts became a 200 million dollar industry and a major product in Alabama. He was honored, praised, and loved for all of his accomplishments. Carver inspired many with his quote, “Where there is no vision, there is no hope.”

April 8, 2012 New BeginningsPrinciple of Lent:

Lent is a special sacred season of separation/consecration between Ash Wednesday
and Easter Sunday (this year Feb 22 – April 8). The 40 days of Lent are symbolic and
strategically significant in the Bible. The number 40 is used by God to represent a period
of testing, trial, probation, or judgment and ends with a period of restoration, revival
or renewal. The rain in Noah’s day fell for 40 days and 40 nights, Moses was on the
mountain 40 days and 40 nights, the spies searched Canaan for 40 days, the Israelites
wandered 40 years, Elijah ate one meal for 40 days, Jesus fasted in the wilderness for 40
days and was seen on the earth for 40 days after His crucifixion.
By observing Lent, we follow Jesus into the wilderness, resist temptation, pray,
and proceed to Jerusalem and the cross on Good Friday which then culminates in
resurrection on Easter Sunday. This most sacred season on the Church calendar is marked
by repentance, intercession, service, giving and self denial. For so many, Lent is a
moment to give up things we cherish in exchange for prayer, fasting, acts of mercy, and
meditation on the Word of God.

Power of Prayer:
When nations needed healing they prayed. When families needed reconciliation they
prayed. When churches needed revival they prayed. Everything we do as individuals,
church, or nation should be birthed in prayer. Jesus the Son of God was devoted to prayer
and He put priority to prayer than anything else. “One of those days Jesus went out to
a mountainside to pray, and spent the night praying to God.” Luke 6:12. He frequently
withdrew to the wilderness and mountain sides to pray. Prayer was not just Jesus’ habit
but in times of emergency, He resorted to prayer. When tempted, he prayed. When lied
upon, He prayed. During his most trying hour when he was about to be crucified, He
found time to pray. Before He gave up the ghost, He prayed. Today, He seats at the
right hand of God the Father still praying for you. His prayer life was so powerful and
impactful that the disciples said, “Teach us how to pray.” Nations need our prayers,
Individuals need our prayers, families need our prayers, the sick need our prayers,
governments needs our prayers, the lost need our prayers and the needy need our prayers.
Practical Ways to Help:
• Choose to fast from a particular pleasure: Food or TV or Social Media or Internet
or People.
• Join our daily Church-wide Online Blogs expounding on Prayer Items at
• Corporate Prayer every Sunday Morning from 7:00am – 7:30am.
• Attend Intercessors 1 hour of Power / Prayer Clinic every Saturday from 10am –

• Read through the Gospels between now and Easter.
• If you don’t already journal, begin now. Reflect on your readings, prayers and
• Make a list of people with whom you need to be reconciled. Pray for them and let
Jesus guide you in your thinking and feeling toward them.

Matthew 22

King James Version (KJV)

Matthew 22

1And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and said,

2The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son,

3And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.

4Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage.

5But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise:

6And the remnant took his servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew them.

7But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city.

8Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy.

9Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage.

10So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests.

11And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment:

12And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.

13Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness, there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Hebrews 11:1
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

15Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel how they might entangle him in his talk.

16And they sent out unto him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, and teachest the way of God in truth, neither carest thou for any man: for thou regardest not the person of men.

17Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not?

18But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites?

19Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny.

20And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription?

21They say unto him, Caesar’s. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s.

22When they had heard these words, they marvelled, and left him, and went their way.

23The same day came to him the Sadducees, which say that there is no resurrection, and asked him,

24Saying, Master, Moses said, If a man die, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.

25Now there were with us seven brethren: and the first, when he had married a wife, deceased, and, having no issue, left his wife unto his brother:

26Likewise the second also, and the third, unto the seventh.

27And last of all the woman died also.

28Therefore in the resurrection whose wife shall she be of the seven? for they all had her.

29Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.

30For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.

31But as touching the resurrection of the dead, have ye not read that which was spoken unto you by God, saying,

32I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.

33And when the multitude heard this, they were astonished at his doctrine.

34But when the Pharisees had heard that he had put the Sadducees to silence, they were gathered together.

35Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying,

36Master, which is the great commandment in the law?

37Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

38This is the first and great commandment.

39And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

40On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

41While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them,

42Saying, What think ye of Christ? whose son is he? They say unto him, The son of David.

43He saith unto them, How then doth David in spirit call him Lord, saying,

44The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool?

45If David then call him Lord, how is he his son?

46And no man was able to answer him a word, neither durst any man from that day forth ask him any more questions.
