There's A Growing Sound Of Prayer

Today there is a growing thirst in the hearts of people to connect with God, to know what His purpose is for their lives, and to find His direction and will. What impresses me is that it is not necessarily an organized movement but a spontaneous heart cry. It is touching the lives of people all over the world. An observer said, "It is evident in schools, churches, offices, factories, homes - just about everywhere. People are agreeing to pray by phone; to pray by day and by night; to march for prayer, praying for cities as they go; to pray in churches, businesses, coffeehouses, at work and wherever they meet."

One of the misconceptions about prayer is that it can't be effective unless large groups of people are praying. I rejoice when large groups of people come together and pray; but Jesus promised to attend a prayer meeting involving as few as two or three people. He said, "Again I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them" (Matthew 18:19-20).

Another misconception is that only spiritual giants get answers to their prayers. Yet God hears the faintest cry of any of His children.

Because I am His child and He is my father, I can come into His presence anytime, anywhere, and share my heart with him. Thank God there is a growing prayer movement among God's people today. Be a part of it.


Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak.  MATTHEW 26:41
