It’s a Privilege to Pray

Featured

God sits on His throne in His temple. Jesus sits beside Him, vigorously pleading for those He loves. For us. The Holy Spirit is there too. On our behalf He utters groans that words cannot express. And then there’s us. Sitting here, yet welcomed into the presence of this Almighty God (Psalm 11:4, Psalm 18:6, Jeremiah 50:34, Hebrews 7:24-25, Romans 8:26-27).


–He invites us to come with confidence (Hebrews 4:16).


–He tells us our prayers are powerful and effective (James 5:16).


–He says pray about anything and everything. When we do He gives us His peace (Philippians 4:5-6).


–He tells us that faith the size of a mustard seed can say to a mountain, –“Move!” and it will move (Matthew 17:20).


–God says He loves us more than we can know and that He is able and willing to do more than we ask or imagine. (Ephesians 3:18-20)


It’s a privilege to pray.

Prayer Has Great Power

You might wonder what value your prayers have. But the Bible says, “The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results (James 5:16).”

A wonderful result of earnest prayer that we see is a strong, healthy grandson and a daughter recovering from covid. We are grateful to the many who prayed.

To God alone be the glory!

When People Pray

When we learned she was in labor, we enlisted an army of people to pray for our daughter. She was very sick with Covid.

Her covid symptoms disappeared when she walked into the hospital to have the baby. They came back the next day, but she’s improving steadily and able to care for her sweet baby boy.

The Lord listens when people pray.
