The wonder of prayer – James 5 verse 13 – 18
Prayer invites us again to embrace what God has said about Himself to believe it is actually true and to seek His help. There is no more radical act in the Christian faith than prayer. To take your life, to take your struggle, to take your most precious things, to take your most difficult things, and to place them in the hands of someone you can’t see, and you can’t hear, you can’t touch, you can’t feel – is an act so radical it can hardly be described. – Dr. Paul Tripp
Not only is prayer recognizing the sovereignty of God, it recognizes the grace and love of God, His presence, and power, you recognize His mercy. Prayer is power in action.
God is near, He is powerful. He hears. Why would we try in our own strength and limited power to fix a problem we are facing, to change circumstances? Why would we not run to God to do it for us, the One who controls life, the One who created everything, the One who knows us better than we know ourselves…why? Pride? Unbelief? Or perhaps our relationship with God is such that we do not fully trust Him with all of our situations.
Reach out today in prayer and He will receive you, His grace is too big, His mercy is too lofty, His compassion to great toward us, to leave us the way we are!
Stay blessed as you pray believing you will receive the answer …
