These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.
As I pondered what to write this morning, being that I am experiencing writer’s block, I reverted to scriptures used in the Sunday school lesson for today’s message.
This passage of scripture shows that prayers are important and have great power. Jesus demonstrated the power and importance of prayer as He prayed for Himself, His disciples, and the world.
Following Jesus’ example of intercessory prayer, then we must always pray for others and self; there is power in prayer. We know that God hears and answers prayer. This fact is based on Biblical scriptures and personal experience of God answering prayers. Therefore, in our prayer lives, we must seek God with a sincere heart, in faith, believing in our prayers. We must be willing to align our will with that of God’s as His choice is superior to ours.
Why am I writing about prayer? It is because our nation needs healing. There is much division in our country. We see the ugliness of hate manifesting itself in different formats, and we wonder why we are all God’s creation. Our best weapon against the mess that we see is prayer. Therefore, join me in praying that God touches the hearts and minds of those committing these evil acts.
Prayer changes things.
