Prayer isn’t murmuring a few words when troubles come. You’re talking to Almighty God, and . . . Your prayers mean so much!
When the accuser hurls lies, and you’re suddenly in a bad situation, do you cry out for prayer? Do you turn to others and in desperation, ask them to pray? I believe Christians aren’t the only ones who do. Prayer should surely be the first and most important reaction for those who do follow Christ when they’re hit with fiery darts. But what if the darts are aimed at a loved one?
When you reach out to loved ones, friends, prayer groups, your church, prayer chains, TV, and even Facebook groups and ask for prayer . . . it is a good thing! I’m here to testify and give thanks to the power of praying in agreement, as my son recently had his world turned upside-down. I’ll spare you the details, but the daily presence of his only child he adores and who adores him ended abruptly.
Lilly’s younger here–babies change so quickly–but will be turning two February 10, 2018. I turned to my Heart”wings” sisters to pray for Truth to be revealed and God’s will to be done.
I’m so thankful for Heart”wings” ~ a women’s fellowship–a Facebook group about to celebrate its third anniversary with a membership nearing a thousand. It’s represented by Christian ladies around the world and from every walk of life. When the prayer request was posted, almost immediately, I felt His peace falling down on me. Before I knew it, the steady shower became a torrent, and my soul experienced that peace that passes all understanding.
Before long, sixty-five sisters lifted me and my son to God’s throne room. The realization was palpable, intense. So if two or three praying in agreement brings results, think of the strength of a hundred! God’s power shall prevail.
“And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.” Ecclesiastes 4:12
I thank my Heart”wings” sisters for their prayers! I thank my Father for His sweet peace that passes understanding, and I thank Holy Spirit for showing me how desperately the one I blamed needed to know God’s precious, unconditional love!
I set my heart free to forgive and went into prayer for her. How long might that have taken without His peace, without those prayers of my sisters?
I appreciate that we serve an approachable God. A Father who encourages us to come to Him and share our troubles along with those of the ones we love. And this past week, that was me, the loved one of my Sisters, and it was my son who I love dearly, and my grandsugar doll, baby Lilly. When God’s peace showered down because so many were lifting me up, I also felt His intense love through those prayers. So amazing.
“For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.” 1 Peter 3:22
So whether you are the one praying or the one the prayers are lifted for, your prayers mean so much! If you’re interested in joining this amazing group of so many dear ladies who love God, PM me or Joyce Grave, Heart”wings” founder. You may also let me know in your comments below.
Have you recently hesitated to ask for prayer? Or agreed to pray for someone who’s requested it?
