Prayer For A Friend
What Good Does Prayer Do Anyway?
"I pray as I
write this that God will sort out my thoughts, and as I write, He will
guide my heart, my thoughts, and my fingers. May the words be clear and
consise and full of meaning - so it will be valuable not only for me but
for all who pass by here."
There are times I am
led to pray for someone- and may never know why. This is one of those
times. I do know that what I have to write is very important to someone -
if it is you, then I praise God! Please take the time to let me know. You
are very valuable to the Father, for Him to place you on my heart so heavy
Prayer is a very
strange thing - something that if you have never done it, you can't really
understand just what it is. That is, unless you view it in the right way.
Prayer is talking with God. It's not one way, and there is no set pattern.
It's part of a relationship with the Father. Consequently, the style of
prayer you pray greatly reflects your relationship with your Heavenly
Prayer does not give
you spiritual power, but rather aligns your life with God so that he
chooses to demonstrate His power through you.
It is not to
convince God to change your circumstances- that is not its purpose.
Instead, it prepares you to become involved in God's activity.
When we look at
Pentecost, we see much that the disciples had to learn about prayer, too.
They were told to stay there and to wait. Jesus told them to wait,
and they did - they prayed and waited. They didn't understand what they
were waiting for. (Just as you may not know what God is asking you to wait
As they waited and
prayed, they were adjusting their lives to what God intended next. Their
lives were never the same after that.
Your waiting time
right now is a time to adjust your life for what God is going to do next!
The Pentecost prayer
did not induce the Spirit to come upon them. It brought the people to a
place where they were ready to participate in the great work God had
As they waited and
prayed, a unity developed. They used the scriptures to guide their
decision. (For the replacement of Judas)
And their prayer
prepared them for their obedient response.
This time of
prayer and waiting is to adjust you to God's will - not visa versa.
Adjust your praying
to align with God's agenda.
God is more
interested in what He wants to see happen in you than what you
would like to see happen.
I dont know who you
are, or what you are seeking, but please know God loves you with a
never-ending love! He gave His Son for you- and He will withold no good
gift from you. Enter into His presence with a grateful and humble heart -
and tell Him your need. Give Him your heart, and not whatever or
whoever is keeping you from Him!
Father, I pray for
this seeker, or seekers, that you will open their eyes to what you are
wanting them to know. Let them feel your awesome love, and experience the
awesome power in your grace. I pray they will know the meaning of an
intimate relationship with you, and will daily experience intimate
communication with you!
Father, Thank you
for allowing me to be a vessel,...You are truly awesome! Amen.
