A group of men meet regularly at McDonalds. One man’s wife died, and he wondered if he would see her again.
Another man prayed for the perfect opportunity to give him the book, One Minute After You Die, by Erwin Lutzer.
God gave the perfect opportunity.
Accused, she wanted justice. To be freed from blame. Declared not guilty. So she went to the judge. Continually. Repeatedly. He finally gave it.
Rightly accused, we need justice. To be freed from blame. Declared not guilty. So we pray to God, the Righteous Judge. He gives justice, speedily. All because of Jesus.
Read the whole story in Luke 18:1-11.
So many students in inner city schools don’t know their dads.
But the Redeemer of the fatherless is strong, he will plead their cause (from Proverbs 23:10-11).
Those who pray for them work with God.
More than 2,ooo years have passed since Jesus prayed, “for those who will believe in me (John 17:20).”
Some still have not believed.
Join with Him and pray for them.
“People often pray, ‘Please be with us.’
But God is already with us.
Prayer is a reminder that we are in God’s presence.”*
*Pastor Manny Rocha, Cornerstone Church, Glenview, Illinois.
If you see a Christian brother or sister sinning in a way that does not lead to death, you should pray and God will give that person life (1 John 5:16 bold mine).”
Don’t gossip or slander; use words to pray.
“If we are connected to God, we have unlimited resources. If we really believe God is all-powerful and can do anything, we should start asking him, ‘What is it you want me to do?'”*
*Ruth Lopez Turley, as quoted in A Woman’s Place, p.54, by Katelyn Beaty.
