Jesus calls us to both personal and private prayer:
– In Matthew 6v6 Jesus says, “When you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you.”
– In Matthew 18v19 Jesus says, “I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.”
What is the power in prayer? The power of prayer does not flow from us, it is not special words we say. It is simply that prayer places us in contact with the Almighty God and we should therefore expect almighty results. “Nothing is impossible with God”Luke 1v37.
As we head into Admaston Fun Week with all the events associated with it, let’s keep our eyes and minds fixed on the Almighty God. Our faith is in Him, not attractive adverts or amazing activities. The adverts and the activities are merely tools in His almighty work – as are you and I!
So may I encourage to pray alone and together over these next couple of weeks. After all, we are entering spiritual battle, and Paul at the end of his list of spiritual armour says, “And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.” Ephesians 6v18
With much blessing,
