Everything the Bible Says About Prayer - Book Review

Pray with Humility:

If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin.  (II Chronicles 7:14 NIV)

Seek God's guidance in prayer at all of life's crossroads.

Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying.  (Romans 12:12 NLT)

Be humble under God's powerful hand so he will lift you up when the right time comes.  Give all your worries to him, because he cares about you.  (I Peter 5:6-7 NCV)

The prayer of Jabez for a fruitful life:

Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, "Oh that you would bless me and enlarge my territory!  Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain."  And God granted his request.  (I Chronicles 4:10 NIV)

Start-up Guide for the Black Entrepreneur - Book Review

Work smart.  Specialize.  Stick with your plan.

Information to help you succeed.

This book is a treasure. 

The author shares that many people that he talks with tells him that they should have read this book five years ago.

Entrepreneurialism involves risk and effort.

The home-business boom is quietly coming.

When it comes to selling your services and products, the only color that should matter is green.

He shares he's been there, he knows the issues and struggles.  He's been asked from time to time with his credentials, why don't he work for a large company where there is stability and longevity and where he knows where his next paycheck is just a week away?  He shares there is no such thing as corporate longevity and security anymore.

No two businesses are ever exactly the same.  Your success will be the work of your smart work.

Get informed, get organized, and as Martin Lawrence would say, "Gits to steppin!"  Arsenio Hall used to say "Let's get busy!"

Bill Boudreaux is the author.  He has a B.S. in Accounting and a Masters of Business Administration and is a CPA.

He has worked with small minority businesses for more than twenty years.  At 25, he became the treasurer of an international marine transportation firm.  He has an ongoing relationship with an information technology firm that develops software solutions to track marine vessels in the inland waterway system.

Confronting Jezebel - Book Review

Jezebel Spirit or Control Freak?

Not all control freaks, however, are Jezebels.

True Jezebel controllers, however, are out to destroy.

Keep in mind that Satan always attempts to counterfeit the work of God.

Jezebel Hates the Prophetic -

In the Old Testament, no one rose up to oppose Queen Jezebel except the prophet Elijah.  Jezebel was Elijah archenemy.

It is not fair to identify one or two traits in someone and determine based on those that the person is dealing with a Jezebel spirit.

She Gets What She Wants -

Queen Jezebel got what she wanted, and Ahab willingly gave it to her.  The clear battle with the Jezebel principality desires to rule and control the people of God.
