Prayer Requests

Prayer is a spiritual way of describing how we talk with God. It is the way we can respond to God as He calls us to come to Him. God continues to call out to each of His children, every day, drawing us close to Him, wanting us to realize that He truly is just a prayer away. Prayer will allow you to experience intimacy with God."Call to me," the Lord says in Jeremiah 33:3, "and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things which you do not know."In prayer we get a taste of eternal life, when we will know God intimately. Prayer is not a time to learn or study more about God, but instead, is time spent with God. Prayer allows you to become aware of the strength and love imparted to us by the miraculous presence of God's Holy Spirit in our lives. James 5:16 says," Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much."

 

God Has No Limits


Read 2 Chronicles 23:1 through 26:8

All the different things a smartphone can do make it an amazing device. Yet even with all the helpful apps and features, there are still people who ignore these perks and choose to use their cell phones only to make calls.

Christians can do a similar thing with God. Forgetting all the amazing power that God truly has, they only turn to God to give them what they need at the moment.

Instead of trusting that God could lead the nation of Judah to victory, King Amaziah hired soldiers from his northern neighbor Israel for a fairly large sum of money. The Lord sent a prophet to command the king to send these hired soldiers back home.

Amaziah asked the man of God, “But what about the hundred talents I paid for these Israelite troops?” The man of God replied, “The Lord can give you much more than that” (2 Chronicles 25:9).

Amaziah seemed more concerned about losing the money he paid than he was about pleasing God. The prophet had to remind him that God could provide resources and power far beyond money.

Thought for Today: Remember that with God all things are possible.
