Prayer and Praise Corner: May 24, 2013

Prayer and Praise Corner:

“Open wide your mouth and I will fill it.” Psalm 81:10

“If any one chooses to do God’s will, he will find out whether my teaching comes from God.” John 7:17

How vast are the possibilities of prayer! It lays its hand on God Almighty and moves Him to do what He would not otherwise do if prayer were not offered.

Prayer is a wonderful power placed by God in the hands of His people, which may be used to accomplish great purposes and to achieve unusual results. Prayer reaches to everything, taking in all things great and small that are promised by God to His children.

The records of achievements of prayer are encouraging to faith. Prayer is no untried theory. Prayer is a divine arrangement from God; designed for the benefit of mankind, intended as a means for furthering the interests of His cause on earth, and carrying out His gracious purposes in redemption and providence. Prayer proves itself. It is capable of proving its virtue through those who pray. Prayer needs no proof other than its accomplishments.

If any man wants to know the virtue of prayer, if he wants to know what it can achieve, let him pray. Let him put prayer to the test.

Prayer requests: Pray for our church families who are grieving that they will find peace in The Source. Pray that we will be open to and that God will use us as vessels to bring about His peace. Thank God that He is the Shepherd, the Forgiver, the Potter, the Cleanser, the Redeemer and most of all the Savior. Pray that we will become better listeners as we seek to spread His Word.

Prayer: Oh Father, I thank You for the wonderful power of prayer that You have placed in our hands. I thank You that prayer is no untried theory. It is a divine arrangement from You for our benefit, and for carrying out Your plans on earth for Your glory. Lord, teach me to pray. Amen.
