(1) Pray because God has stirred your heart and desires to share something with you.
(2) Pray because you know there are forces aligned against us that do now want this mission to succeed. Trust that our prayers will be effective, powerful and overwhelming.
(3) Pray because you are the KEY to making a real lasting difference! (consider Daniel 9:23)
Mark 9:29 ”He replied, “This kind can come out only by prayer.”
“Prayer, and only prayer, restores my vision to one that more resembles God’s. i awake from blindness to see that wealth lurks as a terrible danger, not a goal worth striving for; that value depends not on race or status but on the image of God every person bears; that no amount of effort to improve physical beauty has much relevance for the world beyond.” Philip Yancey
Prayer for Spiritual Awareness
Gracious God, you have flooded my life with abundance as vast as a field of wheat stretching to the horizon. Yet because life comes at me so fast, and sometimes with ferocity, it is easy for me to forget the blessings you give so generously. Then when I see someone else’s need, I am suddenly aware again of the abundance in my own life. When I have such a moment of recognition, O God, help me realize that I may be the blessing you have brought to that person’s life. Me, my life, my heart, my hand are Your instruments of healing, hope and grace. Give me courage to use them for their intended purpose, to bless and to give as You have given me. Amen
