Hey this is Mike Swick from if not for God podcast our show stories of hopelessness turned and I hope your chosen Truth Network podcast is starting in just seconds. Enjoy it, share it, but most of all, thank you for listening and for choosing The Truth Podcast Network. This is the Truth Network encouraging prayer, God offers an open invitation for his people to talk with him at any time about anything urgent prayer. Dr. James Banks, author of the best-selling and many other books on prayer provides weekly for insight help you learn to love about so encouraging about karma for how to pray about everything that has to do with driving and your car right James, I think it helps to ask God for a good mechanic.

You know, one who will be honest and knows what he's doing and for a good tire store and also to lead you to others that know about your cars make and model and it also helps you pass God's blessing and direction even before you buy your car and and hopefully have lead you to the one you know that that have you not I should tell her looks are not here with Robbie's Christian card. I sure it's a really helpful resource doing a long time and it also helps to know before about Robbie actually had a Chrysler dealership topic particularly well so Rob if you don't mind my doing a little of the interviewing one of the things you recommend brag about this and I'll just quote the prayer Lord, I want to pray that you travel with me and through me in my driving both in my spirit and my action was interested in my spirit and my actions so talked about that for a moment, would you yeah I just feel like it was an interesting thing is God, had me on that lesson plan. Back when I wrote that prayer that I know what I've talked about before that, I just wanted to always be on the phone with them and that you know that my spirit would be one with it spirit you know there's this idea of oneness or unity or a common vision that I would get to see things through his eyes and hopefully as I was seeing things through his eyes at my driving would not be quite as aggressive, I can think about so many areas where this applies like when you come up on an accident.

The person and it needs you know first responders work for someone with a car problem that you're not able to help with, or when you see a reckless driver.

This applies to so much and it's so good that you bring this up things we need to realize is that everything we do involves the kingdom. Even driving.

Yeah, I love that and another thing you mentioned is forgiveness. When you drive talk more about that well you know things if I'm completely transparent. I struggle with the times. Road rage right and so you know it's an immediate thing like it's in the Lord's prayer, you know, forgive us as we forgive those in you know often, especially as is with covert hidden all that. I don't know if you've noticed how much more aggressive people been in their driving that that you immediately have to get to that place of our let me help me forgive them. You know and help me pray for him because he knows what they're going through what you think of like the commentary that I have when I drive something I don't like I got asked myself. Good run that comment by Jesus first. And so you know I got actually the best driver makes mistakes and we need to forgive.

This is so good, so you know nothing. I think it really makes a difference is to pray as soon as you get my car to ask God for safe trip there and back again and before long trip because most accidents happen within a quarter-mile of your home right right that's right prayer.

Deliver us from evil is so helpful here had a dear friend, just a year ago was killed within a mile of community just went to get some of the grocery store and he never came home.

Now while your daughter have an too far just just two weeks ago exactly that's right, here's a question for you Robbie. What would you say to someone who says why should I pray about my car when I'm having mechanical issues. I mean it either works or doesn't II really really love that? You know you interestingly G. Gordon Liddy asked me that question one time when he was interviewing me on his radio show the same exact question like, however, you know, and I thought you know that is one of the most delightful things I can think of when we we know that we've involved God in in the mechanical issues and something happens and we see his hand at work and is literally our testimony right that I was actually leading the prayer the church the other night and they were talking about how this may have gotten a flat tire and he'd been praying in the Lord helped it rain because this other tire had a bubble on it. Any nude. It stated needed to stay cool so that that he could drive the rest of the way home on this other time on the spare that had this bubble but again he saw God in it because he'd been praying in that and had he not been pregnant. He didn't miss, yeah, I love after all, there's absolutely no reason why God couldn't intervene in the mechanical matter or short how to fix it. Years ago I was having problem with my old dog should in no matter what I tried. I couldn't fix it and then one night I went to sleep at night I had a dream that I was under the car just making the small little change was really simple point out the next morning and did exactly what I done in my dream and that was all it took. Cool is that. That's like that the person the hundred 19 Psalm I remember thy name in the night the Lord kept on exactly you lived it and let me know that's awesome so it comes down to Colossians 317 and whatever you do, I went in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. So Jim's James innocence is all that I made this letter to close the prayer that we let God, and especially when we drive the verse I was thinking what you do word or deed, do it all the member or Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

Even driving, exactly, let's pray Lord help us when we drive to be yours. All yours keep her safe and blessed. Help us to bring you into that moment so that it really is something for you that's not a reason you love us and will bring us all in Jesus and hear more from Pastor James by visiting the website James or by visiting these church in Durham, North Carolina.

May God bless you and encourage you to pray. This is the Truth Network
