Prayer is the waiting miracle that begins with the
times prayer begins with problems. Prayer is
not merely the means getting something from God but the process of getting to
know God. We get to know God by His Word and through our prayers. The problem is
that we have failed to acknowledge the great need for prayer. How often have you
been in a church meeting and heard some say, ‰Well, let’s pray so we can get
down to business?
the key that prepares us for the days ahead. Most people do not view prayer that way. We wait until the
point of desperation and say, ‰We’ve got to pray!‱ We are on the threshold of
revival. I know that because of the amount of pressure to keep us from
praying-the warfare that distracts us and the urgent things that crowd out the
essential. When Jesus was on the eve of the greatest spiritual victory in
history, He was found in prayer. On the other hand, the disciples neglected the
warning and were unprepared when the hour approached.
Prayer is the key that protects us from the
attacks of Satan. Prayer is the
battleground on which we impose the victory that has already been won for us at
Calvary. Ephesians 6:10 - 18 describes being dressed for battle. However, it is
one thing to be dressed for the battle and another to know where the war is
being fought. Prayer thwarts Satan like nothing else we can do. He has no
defense against prayer, for prayer takes you off the battlefield doing
hand-to-hand combat and puts the LORD In your place.
Prayer is the key that empowers us to do God’s
will. We are empowered by
surrendering our wills to God’s. ‰Not my will, but yours be done‱ (Luke 24:42,
NIV). This simple matter of surrendering our wills to God’s will is difficult
for most of us. Yet failing to surrender will keep us from being the type of
individual God wants us to be and the type of church God wants us to
