When we have prayed, God opens the doors of opportunity, sends divine help, casts mountains into the sea, and floods our hearts with delight.
Until we have prayed, we are left to shadowbox ourselves to exhaustion. A prayerful life is a directed life. A prayerless Christian is crippled, deaf, and blind. Prayer is the main event. Miracles and victories are the fruit of prayer.
The great men and women of the Bible lacked much of what is required today for success. Most of them gained little by way of education. None of them ever attended a leadership seminar or strategic planning summit. Few of them possessed any political influence. Widespread popularity came only to a few Old Testament kings. Unfettered by degrees and methodologies, they turned their world upside down. They called upon the Lord. They prayed day and night. They asked God for the impossible. God answered with the incredible.
Every one of us can make the world a better place today. We can do it by praying. Prayer is more effective than any human endeavor.
Have you prayed today? Have you humbled yourself before God? Have you asked Him to do something great?
