Bring It On: Praying for a Mate

Bring It On: Praying for a Mate Read Transcript


Terry: WE ASKED YOU TO

SUBMIT YOUR QUESTIONS IN OUR

CHATROOM TODAY, AND SOME OF

YOU HAVE.

THE FIRST ONE IS FROM KEN

INTO ASKS, "HOW DO I

DISCOVER MY LIFE'S

PURPOSE?"

Pat: DEAR LORD.

Terry: ON YOUR MARK,

GET SET, GO.

Pat: THERE'S A

THEOLOGICAL COURSE ON THAT

ONE.

GOD WILL SHOW YOU LITTLE BY

LITTLE BY LITTLE.

IT WON'T COME OVERNIGHT.

I BELIEVE THAT GOD MADE US

THE WAY WE ARE.

AND THAT WHICH FEELS GOOD TO

US IS WHAT HE MADE US FOR.

SO THE THING, WE HAD KENNY

WHO IS A TERRIFIC SINGER AND

A SONGWRITER.

GOD HAS GIVEN HIM A SKILL.

GOD MAY HAVE MADE YOU A

PAINTER.

HE MAY HAVE GIVE YOU

COMPASSION FOR PEOPLE WHO

ARE SICK.

HE MAY HAVE PREPARED YOU FOR

MEDICINE.

HE MAY HAVE GIVEN YOU AN

ANALYTICAL MIND THAT WOULD

BE FOR SCIENCE OR LAW.

WHEREVER IT IS -- YOU MAY

LIKE FIXING THINGS.

YOU MAY LIKE TO MAKE CARS OR

BE A MECHANIC.

YOUR LIFE'S PURPOSE IS

FULFILLING THAT WHICH GOD

MADE YOU FOR.

THE APOSTLE PAUL SAID, "I'M

REACHING AHEAD TO TRY TO LAY

HOLD THAT WHICH CHRIST HAS

LAID HOLD OF ME."

SO THE APOSTLE PAUL STILL

HASN'T FOUND IT ALL.

Terry: AND JUST BECAUSE

IT GETS TOUGH DOESN'T MEAN

YOU SHOULD STOP.

THE THING YOU SEE EN YOUR

LIFE, HOW GOD USED YOU HERE,

AND IN KENNY'S LIFE -- THERE

ARE TIMES WHEN IT IS NOT

SURE AND CLEAR.

YOU'VE GOT TO PRESS ON AND

PRESS THROUGH.

Pat: YOU'VE GOT TO MAKE

SURE YOU LISTEN TO THE

LORD.

YOU PRAY, YOU SEEK THE LORD,

YOU READ THE BIBLE, AND

CIRCUMSTANCES OPEN UP.

AGAIN, AS TERRY SAID, THERE

MAY BE SOME OBSTACLES.

THE OBSTACLES AREN'T

NECESSARILY TO KEEP YOU FROM

GOD'S PURPOSE.

SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO GET

STRONG TO BREAKTHROUGH.

I DO WEIGHTLIFTING, AND IN

ORDER TO BUILD YOUR MUSCLES,

YOU'VE GOT TO STRAIN AGAINST

THEM.

THAT'S THE WHOLE THING,.

Terry: YOU'RE TEARING

THEM DOWN TO BUILD THEM UP.

Pat: YOU PUSH AGAINST A

LOAD OF WEIGHT, AND IT TEARS

THE MUSCLES DOWN AND THEY

REGROW AND GET BIGGER.

Terry: LAURA SAYS, "I

HAD FOUR MISCARRIAGES AND

TWO STILLBIRTHS IN THE LAST

FOUR YEARS.

WILL I EVER MEET THE BABIES

IN HEAVEN?"

Pat: YOU REMEMBER THAT

BOY --

Terry: "HEAVEN IN

REAL."

Pat: AND HE MET SOME

SISTERS THAT WERE

MISCARRIED.

I DON'T KNOW.

THESE ARE LIVES, AND THE

LIVES WOULD TAKE FORM IN

HEAVEN.

SO I THINK THE ANSWER IS

YES.

I DON'T HAVE BIBLICAL

AUTHORITY TO SAY YES, HERE

IT IS, CHAPTER AND VERSE.

Terry: "MY HUSBAND'S

BUSINESS HAS TAKEN A

NOSEDIVE FOUR YEARS AGO AND

HAS STAYED THERE.

HE THINKS SOMEONE HAS PUT A

CURSE ON HIM.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?"

Pat: I DON'T HAVE ANY

IDEA IF SOMEONE PUT A CURSE

ON IT.

IF YOU THINK THERE HAS BEEN

A CURSE, BREAK IT.

SAY IN THE NAME OF JESUS, I

BREAK THIS CURSE AND

BONDAGE.

IT COULD POSSIBLY BE HE IS

IN THE WRONG LINE OF WORK.

IT IS NOT A CURSE, BUT

YOU'VE DONE SOMETHING, AND

LOOK FOR SOMETHING ELSE.

SEEK THE LORD ON THAT ONE.

SEEK HIS WISDOM.

SEEK WHAT HE'LL TELL YOU.

WE CAN ALWAYS BLAME THE

DEVIL.

WELL, WHAT'S WRONG?

IT'S THE DEVIL.

THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT.

THE DEVIL PUT A CURSE ON

ME.

THAT'S NOT THE ANSWER.

FIND OUT WHAT GOD'S WILL IS

FOR YOU.

Terry: ALLEN SAYS, "I'M

A SINGLE 32-YEAR-OLD MALE.

I'VE NEVER BEEN MARRIED.

BUT HAVING A FAMILY IS

SOMETHING I LONG FOR.

IS IT WRONG FOR ME TO PRAY

FOR GOD TO SEND ME

SOMEONE?"

Pat: NO.

AND ELIGIBLE MALE IN YOUR

30s.

THERE SHOULD BE WOMEN

CRAWLING ALL OVER YOU.

Terry: BE ENCOURAGED.

Pat: BE ENCOURAGED.

HEAVEN'S SAKE, THERE ARE SO

MANY.

NO, THERE IS NOTHING WRONG

WITH ASKING GOD TO SEND YOU

A MATE.

Terry: CRISSIE

SAYS, "IS IT ALREADY TO

PARTICIPATE IN O OCCUPY

WALL STREET?"

Pat: I DON'T KNOW.

NOBODY KNOWS WHAT THEY'RE

DOING.

WHY ARE THEY THERE?

THEY'RE JUST MAD.

IF YOU'RE GOING TO

DEMONSTRATE, DEMONSTRATE FOR

RIGHTEOUSNESS.

DEMONSTRATE TO LIFT THE YOLK

OF OPPRESSION.

DEMONSTRATE TO HELP THOSE

THAT ARE POVERTY STRICKEN.

BUT DON'T JUST GO OUT AND

MESS UP A PARK AND TEAR UP

THINGS.

IT IS FORMLESS AND HAS NO

PURPOSE, BUT IT COULD BE

USED BY RADICALS WHO WANT TO

DESTROY THIS NATION.
