I am a staunch believer in the fact the prayer changes things, and they change for the greater glory of God. I am in complete agreement to Reverend Charles Stanley’s statement: “We fight our battles on our knees.“
I’ll keep this short. We can choose to take action and do all that is humanly possible to tip the scales to what we perceive to be in our favor, but God will never fail to sort things out for us in His perfect way the moment that we seek Him. And while there is life, while there is freedom to speak, we can still pray. We can pray before things happen, until things happen, while things happen, after things happen… The sooner we allow the Lord to take over, the more we involve Him in what goes on, the more things will make sense, and the more He would be glorified.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
– Philippians 4:6-7
“I love the LORD, for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy. Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live.”
– Psalm 116:1-2
That’s why I pray.
Oh yes, I pray.
The more we go through, the more we can allow God to move, the more we can behold His grace, and rejoice.
God bless you.
