I Pray Because I Believe

I sat beside my grandson’s incubator and looked across the NICU at so many babies, some sick, some born too soon to survive alone.

Because I believe, I prayed. “This is hard. But You promise to make it good. These children need You for life now and for eternity. Your steadfast love is our hope.”

For those who love God all things work together for good (Romans 8:28).
The eye of the Lord is one those who fear him, on those who hope in his steadfast love (Psalm 33:18).

 

Why You Should Pray in Secret

Jesus said: Go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you (Matthew 6:6).

Elijah did just that. He saw the child lying dead on his bed. So he went in and shut the door behind the two of them and prayed to the Lord (2 Kings 4:32-33).

Death became life because of secret prayer!

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).
