GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS!
Prayer – the one tool that we as believers have and is more powerful than any modern day weapon that we have today. So, how is your prayer life? Are you a prayer warrior? A question for thought and reflection.
God answers the prayers of the faithful(2 Chronicles 6:19) -“Have respect therefore to the prayer of thy servant, and to his supplication. O Lord my God, to hearken unto the cry and the prayer which thy servant prayeth before thee…” 2 Chronicles 16:9-“For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen the hearts of those who are fully committed to Him.”
The best way to get to know God and who He is through prayer and His suffering. The pain that He feels when we sin. A simple prayer like “O’ Lord, I pray that I may come to know you, and be in your presence. As a father myself, that I feel the pain you go through when we, your children, sin and we have to be disciplined. To understand the pain you felt when Your Only Son, died on the cross, and shed His blood to free me from the shackles of my sin”.
Do I feel the presence of God in the battles of life? The Lord God of Israel commanded prayer. He thought it so important that He even gave us a prayer and taught us how to pray. God is sovereign over all things. Even though we sin He will still go before us and lead us. When we pray to God, He will allow us to conquer according to His Word. We must be consistent in our prayer to God.
God is trustworthy and true. It is through the Holy Spirit that we are delivered. God remains faithful to the believer.
