Day 17 of 40-Day Prayer Challenge
“O Lord, pay attention and act. Delay not, for your own sake, O my God.” Daniel 9:19
Before we see miracles happen when we intercede for others for healing, jobs, marriages, deliverance, and salvation, there are speed bumps along the way. Praying hard is not the path of least resistance; it’s usually the path of most resistance because we engage in spiritual warfare. In fact, when we begin interceding for others, we better make sure that others are interceding for us. We need a prayer circle that provides a prayer covering.
Very rarely are our prayers answered as quickly or easily as we’d like. By definition, praying hard is hard because it’s hard. But it’s the prayers you pray when you feel like you want to quit praying that can bring the greatest breakthroughs.
Our most powerful prayers are hyperlinked to the promises of God. When we know we are praying the promises of God, we can pray with holy confidence. We don’t have to second-guess ourselves, because we know that God’s word does not return to Him empty. This doesn’t mean we can claim the promises of God out of context. But our problem typically isn’t overclaiming the promises of God; it’s underclaiming them.
If we stand on God’s word, God will stand by His word. God is never early. God is never late. God is always right on time.
What to pray. Safety for Mission Nac workers and that souls would be saved as a result of our giving to the community.
