Prayer Changes Things

sept-13“Never give up praying.  And when you pray, keep alert and be thankful.”  Colossians 4:2 (CEV)

Has the thought prayer changes things ever been made real in your life?

Recently we have been writing names on cards of people who burden our hearts and placing them at the church altar. A simple gesture – take a card, write a name on it, place it on the altar and pray over it.

Seems simple – the difficult part is to continue praying over those names left at the altar.  So many times we pass along a prayer request and leave it there, forgetting it’s our request and our burden to continue to pray over.  When we continue to pray day after day, we see results.  Many individuals whose names are on those cards are coming to Christ.  Those burdened hearts of friends and family are creating a ripple effect of lives being changed.

Who do we need to place on a card and pray over?  Have we given up on that friend or family member?  God hasn’t; He is still knocking and asking for your continued prayers over them.  We all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of the Lord so who are we to give up on them?  Write down that name and pray, pray, pray.  Keep your eyes open to watch God move.  Then celebrate and spend time in praying thanking God for what He has done.  Give all the praise and glory to Him.  We can’t wait to hear your story of how God moved.

“Father, please touch my friend _______________ with Your hand of grace.  Let them find You and accept the free gift of eternal life.  I thank You in advance for Your saving grace.”
