As I read various blogs, Twitter feeds, Facebook, and emails concerning ministry in this day, I sense a glaring need, an overlooked necessity, and an unfulfilled promise.
What is it?
The crying need of the hour is that we as individuals, local churches, colleges, and other parachurch ministries be sold-out to the calling of effectual, fervent, heart-rendering, transparent, crying out to God in faith-believing prayer!!!
E.M. Bounds said in his book Weapon of Prayer, “Nothing is well done without prayer for the simple reason that it leaves God out of the account.”
That is the greatest reason why we need to pray today! We need to see the character of God displayed in answers from God that will give God the glory and cause man to praise His matchless, transcendent name! To be in absolute awe of Who God is!!
We need a touch from God on our individual lives, our marriages, our families, our churches, and our nation!!
Lost souls need to be saved for God’s glory! Revival needs to break out in our churches! Christ needs to be exalted over programs and policies! We need God!!!
Meditate on the following:
Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not (Jeremiah 33:3).
But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly (Matthew 6:6).
Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them (Mark 11:24).
We have seen more than enough of what man can do. Let’s pray and believe God for what He said He would do!!
Will you join with other believers in this kind of praying? Will you make the sacrifice? Will you cry out to God and believe Him for the God-size answers?
But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible” (Matthew 19:26).
