Without prayer we will never see true revival in our churches and real transformation in our communities. The key is prayer…real, raw, rigorous prayer!
Prayer changes us and changes things. It changes us by emptying us of our egocentric self-reliance and filling us with faith in a God we cannot see. It changes things by moving the heart that moves the hand that moves the world.
It is only in our prayer closets where we discover the plans which God has called us to employ. It is only in our times of prayer that we tap into the divine strength we so desperately need to employ them.
Without prayer we have action without traction. But with prayer we are an unstoppable force in the hands of God.
Prayer not only unleashes the power of God to carry out THE Cause he has called us to accomplish, it causes the forces of darkness that are seeking to thwart us to run! As Samuel Chadwick once said, â€œSatan dreads nothing but prayer. His one concern is to keep the saints from praying. He fears nothing from prayerless studies, prayerless work, prayerless religion. He laughs at our toil, he mocks our wisdom, but he trembles when we pray.”
So…Let us pray!!!
