How often do we hear someone say, “All I can do is pray?” That is like telling a starving man, “All I can do is offer you food,” or to a sick person, “All I can do is offer you medication.”  There will be many times when all you can do, is all you NEED to do.

Praying unlocks the door to Heaven and releases the power of God. The Bible in James 4 reads...”You do not have because you do not ask.” There is much power in your spoken word, and more power when you honor God by humbling yourself, then asking for the desires of your heart.  The Bible also teaches that “We should be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your request be known to God.”

This is true.. not just for our needs, but for the needs of others. We must pray for others as well as ourselves. We may share with God a special need for another, touching their lives and sending God to their aid. Many are afraid, or have forgotten they can talk to God. Many need God in their lives, but have chosen a path of sin.. May we pray for the spiritual healing of all people, and maybe we will have peace on earth.
