Why wish upon a star when you can pray to the One who created it? - Unknown Quote

 

Prayer is powerful when you know that the One who answers prayer is the Creator. Jeremiah exclaimed, “Ah, Sovereign Lord, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for You.” Jeremiah 32:17  If God created the world from nothing, we can bring our cares & needs to God in prayer.  Yet we spend sleepless nights kept awake by worries and concerns. 

 

I love the story of Jeremiah in chapter 33, verses 1-3. While Jeremiah was still confined in the courtyard of the guard, the word of the LORD came to him a second time: ‘This is what the LORD says, He who made the earth, the LORD who formed it and established it—the LORD is His name: ‘Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.’” The prophet was under house arrest but no guard could stop God from visiting him! God invites Jeremiah to pray so that in dire circumstances, he could still see great and unsearchable things.

 

Friends, God invites you to pray in every situation. Nothing can block you from reaching out to Him. He hears you. He will come to you! 

 

We want to begin the last  quarter of EL Jubilee Year by seeking God in united prayer for 50 days from 1 Oct to 19 Nov.  As a church, we desire to see the great and unsearchable things that the Lord has prepared for us in the future: people coming to Jesus, transformed by His grace and power, filled with the Holy Spirit and discipled to fulfill God’s 5 purposes. 

 

I encourage you to set aside time to seek God for prayer changes things. Prayer changes YOU!
