Have ever turned on the news only to hear of some horrific event that has taken place? Upon hearing it, have you ever had the urge to run to the scene of said event to try to do something; to want to help some and get the situation back in order?
Often among devastation life can make us feel as though we are limited in our options to do something. But, the fact of the matter is you can do something. Something that most count as a last option should actually be the first.
Prayer is powerful! Prayer is authoritative! And, prayer works!
“Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus,” Philippians 4:6-7.
NOTHING is out of the scope of God’s reach. The worse world events can be made tame under the hand of a Sovereign God, if He so wills.
Confident prayer that He hears and is able, makes a difference in life’s circumstances. “If we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us,” 1 John 5:14.
You can do something. To some it may seem a trivial thing, but there is real power in prayer. Who knows what you can change when you approach Him with a heart that wants to intercede on behalf of others.
