THE PRAYER OF A RIGHTEOUS MAN IS POWERFUL AND EFFECTIVE. ( JAMES 5:16 *NIV )
I truly believe that our prayers are the most powerful things on Earth! After all what is a Miracle but a prayer that has been answered!
Thus it is written: DO NOT BE ANXIOUS ABOUT ANY- THING, BUT IN EVERYTHING, BY PRAYER AND PETITION, WITH THANKSGIVING, PRESENT YOUR REQUESTS TO GOD. ( PHILIPPIANS 4:6 ) After all, THE LORD IS FAR FROM THE WICKED BUT HE HEARS THE PRAYER OF THE RIGHTEOUS. ( PROVERBS 15:29 )
Now I know that when our prayers aren’t answered the way we would like, it can disappoint us, we are sad and often depressed. However it is written that we should: BE JOYFUL ALWAYS; PRAY CONTINUALLY; GIVE THANKS IN ALL CIRCUMSTANCES, FOR THIS IS GOD’S WILL FOR YOU IN JESUS CHRIST. ( 1 THESSALONIANS 5:16-18 )
Therefore, never feel that God doesn’t hear your prayers because a prayer isn’t answered immediately, or because it isn’t answered the way you would like. For your Heavenly Father always knows what is best for you, and HE WILL NOT LEAVE YOU NOR FORSAKE YOU. ( DEUTERONOMY 31:6 )
So, remember to always GIVE THANKS TO THE LORD, CALL ON HIS NAME, for He will always hear the prayers of those who love and adore Him! ( 1 CHRONICLES 16:8 )
In closing my prayer is that: THE GRACE OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, AND THE LOVE OF GOD, AND THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE HOLY SPIRIT BE WITH YOU ALL. ( 2 CORINTHIANS 13:14 ) Now and always! Amen!
