When Women Pray – 1

Featured

Women who faithfully pray still get sick. Life still disappoints. Children cause grief, husbands lose jobs or much worse, lose interest in marriage.

Yet these women still pray.

By praying, they know, “In all their distress he too was distressed, and the angel of his presence saved them. In his love and mercy he redeemed them; he lifted them up and carried them all the days of old” (Isaiah 63:9).

Pharaoh on Prayer

Pharaoh asked Moses to . . .
     “Plead with the Lord to take the frogs away” (Exodus 8:8).
     “Plead for me” (Exodus 8:28).
     “Plead with the Lord for me, for there has been enough of God’s thunder and hail
     (Exodus 9:28).
     “Plead with the Lord your God only to remove this death from me” (Exodus 10:17).

Pharaoh saw God answer prayer. So can you.
