Instead of wringing hands, crying and whining, let us not forget that a Godly prayer has the power of God. Our power and our words are worthless without the Word of God and His power. Pray in God’s power, for God to move in His power.
Let us pray for the lost to come to know Jesus Christ. Let us pray for the spiritually blind to receive sight. Let us pray for those who would rather argue, fuss, and fight that they might be drawn to the One who is gentle and meek and will save their souls. Let us pray for hard hearts to be melted by the love of Christ.
Let us pray the body of Christ awakens and rises up to be the hands and feet of Jesus. Let us pray we do not faint or grow weary. Let us pray for God’s wisdom and guidance. Let us pray for God to move and be free to move among the nations and God’s light will shine on this dark world.
Let us not forget that God is always in control and nothing is impossible for God. Let us pray. Let us pray. Let us pray!
“I have no doubt that much of our praying fails for lack of persistence. So many of our prayers are said without the fire and strength of perseverance. … men must be in earnest when they kneel at God’s footstool.” ~ E. M. Bounds
“The potency of prayer has subdued the strength of fire; it has bridled the rage of lions, hushed anarchy to rest, extinguished wards, appeased the elements, expelled demons, burst the chains of death, expanded the gates of heaven, assuaged diseases, repelled frauds, rescued cities from destruction, stayed the sun in its course, and arrested the progress of the thunderbolt. Prayer is an all-efficient panoply, a treasure undiminished, a mine that is never exhausted, a sky unobscured by clouds, a heaven unruffled by the storm. It is the root, the fountain, the mother of a thousand blessings.” ~ St. Chrysostom
“In God’s name, I beseech you, let prayer nourish your soul as your meals nourish your body. Let your fixed seasons of prayer keep you in God’s presence through the day, and may His presence frequently remembered through it be an ever fresh spring of prayer. Such a brief, loving recollection of God renews a man’s whole being, quiets his passions, supplies light and counsel in difficulty, gradually subdues the temper, and causes him to possess his soul in patience, or rather gives it up to the possession of God.” ~ Fénelon
“Pray without ceasing.” ~ 1 Thessalonians 5:17 (NKJV)
