"Prayer can move the hand of God!" So says my great friend and mentor Freda Wiggins.

“Forgive us, oh Lord. for thinking prayer is a waste of time. Without prayer, our work is a waste of time.” Scottish preacher Peter Marshall uttered these words from his pulpit in Washington DC many years ago.

Prayer brings Jesus into the picture. When we take our focus off of ourselves and focus on Jesus through prayer, he is there handling our issues through us. Prayer must undergird all ministry. With prayer, God has a chance to act and answer our needs.

With prayer, there is help and hope where none existed before. Prayer can change hearts and minds and is at the very core of all mission.

Next time you need help turn to the Lord Jesus Christ and his strength. You may be surprised at how quickly He answers your prayers.

“Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon him, for He cares for you.” 1 Peter 5: 7.

“Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” Matthew 18: 19-20.

God's word is not just for our information, it is for our transformation. Becoming a Christian means beginning a whole new relationship with God.

Love and blessings,

Rich H.
