Joel Osteen | – Ask Big | Joel Osteen

When we pray and release our faith—when we ask God to work in our lives—our asking opens the door for His great work in our lives. But, we have to ask. Jabez prayed a bold prayer to God in 1 Chronicles 4:10. Despite his upbringing and surroundings, he dared to ask God for His blessing. “Oh, that You would bless me indeed.”

  2. I sincerely & wholeheartedly understand that what I state in this comment may very well sound mean, harsh, or even what some as percieve as what they refer to as just "negative." But as long as it nevertheless remains true in accordance with the Scripture: Not only are those perceptions given by those individuals are ultimately irrelevant anyway – They are just plain wrong. But nevertheless, from Osteen's perspective: I guess one main elements to the believers life is just to merely USE God as a form of a genie to merely get whatever their puffed up & fleshly mind desires. And get don't most certainly get me wrong; because whether or not I'M wrong(which is not the issue): I've already been there & done that. And so have countless many other Christians. And by their own account: It doesn't flippantly work.

  3. Gentle Blessings to all of you from Little Joe Lewis from Mississippi. I believe Joel Osteen can present the Bible so well. His childhood Sunday School teacher and I have prayed many times on the Lakewood Prayer Line. Little Joel was a really good preacher's kid growing up. He was destined to be a leader in spiritually in America and the Earth. Bless you Joel and all of your household.

  4. Lakewood Church please pray for my Mormon friends because the Mormons have had Iconic influence in America all across American History too. I know Joel and his daddy used to be Baptist. I was too. I'm simply a believer–aren't we all by now. Covid-19 and Jesus to make us seek miracles, knock for miracles, and ask for miracles! Amen Joel.
    Gentle Blessings to You All at Lakewood,

  5. I feel as if every message is for me.. I will pray bold prayers with faith from now on and ignore those negative voices and lies. Love you God and joel i hope to one day meet you in person. Love from davenport iowa. May God continue to bless us all.

  6. The problems that the likes of Joel Osteen and his congregation engages in, is PURELY DRAMA. Human beings do enjoy such dramas. The so called bibles that they appear to hold does not contain absolute truth, if one looks into LIFE deeply, honestly and COMPREHENSIVELY, one would truly arrive at this decision. It is a book with a tiny, teenie bit of truth and a hosts of LIES, DECEPTIONS, INACCURACIES AND MYTHS, among others. THE BIBLE IS NOT 'AUTHORED' BY GOD AND EVEN IF ONE HOLDS THE BELIEF THAT IT WAS, THEN THIS GOD IS MOST ASSUREDLY, A DEMIURGE ENTITY WHO RULES AND GOVERNS THIS LOWER WORLD, WE INHABIT! Our personal lives are dysfunctional on many levels, if only we dare to QUESTION and EXAMINE IT! A very large community of Christians are living lives of scarcity, illnesses, irreversible chronic diseases, loss, poverty and unexplainable sudden deaths, wars. If a truly omnipotent God were ruling this world we inhabit, these events and plagues would not exist in glaring terms. So, Joel Osteen and his congregation can pretend all they want about WHO and WHAT GOD IS! THE TRUTH IS OBVIOUS, ISN'T IT? All that is left for us to do individually and collectively is either WAKE UP OR CONTINUE TO REMAIN IN SLUMBER !
