Robery Murray McHeyne said, “A great part of my time is spent in getting my heart in tune for prayer. It is the link that connects earth with heaven.”
I know that there have been hundreds of books, thousands of sermons and blogs written on the subject of prayer. Everyone knows the importance of prayer but I wonder if we really believe in the results of our prayers? Do we really believe that we can have power with God? Do we really believe that our prayers really can be answered?
Prayer is as vital to us spiritually as air is to us physically. We must learn to pray! There is nothing that brings you closer to God than prayer. Prayer truly is intimacy. Prayer can do anything that God can do. Prayer is omnipotent; prayer is omniscient and prayer is omnipresent. Things happen in your life when you pray…when you truly connect with God.
Abraham prayed and angels came down to earth to converse with him; Jacob prayed and God blessed him mightily; Elisha prayed and fire came down from heaven; Daniel prayed and he was delivered from the lion’s den; Jabez prayed and God poured out blessings on him; Peter prayed and 3000 people were saved. What are YOU praying for? What are you believing God for? Do you really believe there is power in prayer?
I think many of us do not pray because we really don’t believe that God hears us or that we are getting through to Him. I think many people doubt that there is truly power in prayer. The understanding of this powerful connection between God and man is just not there.
I want to encourage you today to take some time and pray. Just take 5 minutes and talk to God. Talk to him out loud, share your heart with Him, praise Him and worship Him and pray for other people. Experience intimacy with God and the power of prayer. You will never be the same!
