“And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.” Mark 9:29
Your life and your church will be dramatically different if it were filled with prayer. I wonder how church would be if we went back to more time devoted to prayer rather than the music we sing or the message we want to get across or the programs we offer in our church. If we encouraged and taught our children to pray rather than concentrate so much on school or sports. Prayer really does change things. It reminds us and brings us into the good and perfect will of our Lord. Unfortunately one of the biggest and best blessings we have in this Christian walk we take too lightly and our churches and personal lives are showing the effects of it.
If we want to see the Church make an impact we need to be in prayer. Prayer can change things and prayer can also change us. I have sat down in prayer feeling one way about a situation and I just wanted confirmation from God. Before I knew it I stood up and felt completely different about the situation I was praying about.
