Why You Should Pray – 2

“There is a living God. He has spoken in His Word. He means just what he says and will do all that he has promised.”*

For all the promises of God find their Yes in him. That is why it is through him that we utter our Amen to God for his glory (2 Corinthians 1:20).

A Tip for Busy Prayers

At any leisure moment you would see him reading from his leather-bound pocket book, in which he had a long list of names for whom he prayed daily. He remembers them all before God in silent prayer.”*

Put a list on your phone (most of us take them everywhere) and pray for people whenever you have a second!

Continue steadfastly in prayer . . . making the best use of the time (Colossians 4:1-5).

God’s Reputation

God was justifiably angry when His people worshiped a golden calf.  He wanted to destroy them. But Moses prayed: “Why should the Egyptians say, “With evil intent did he bring them out, to kill them? . . . and God relented of the disaster he had spoken of (Exodus 32:12-14).

We who bear Christ’s name can implore the Lord to keep his reputation untarnished, even when we sin.
