The Promise of Prayer

 Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about what happens to you. – 1 Peter 5:7 (NLT)

Prayer is a promising exercise.  Aside from its ability to help believers release tension and pressure as well as express themselves openly to God directly, prayer comes with a simple promise.

Prayer may not change the outcome.

The promise of prayer is that it can change our own outlook.

Prayer can change our outlook on matters both big and small.  It can actually alter our own perspective on our position within the midst of misery or the precipice of a problem.

“Prayers never die.” – E.M. Bounds

Once we pray, the promise still holds true.  The promise is all about change.

You may not God’s mind or His intention like the prayer of Hezekiah when called out to get his house in order through the prophet Isaiah.  Yet, prayer offers us power to change our walk along this journey of life.  You can make changes in your life due to your prayer life.

Here is how to tap into the ever-changing power and promise of prayer:

  • Put prayer into effect.
  • Take advantage of what God can offers you through prayer.
  • Always stay connected to God through an active and responsive prayer life.

I find what  Abraham endured to be a true test of the human heart by the best- God Himself.  Abraham had a different kind of walk with God.  He was considered “a friend of God.” He talked intimately with God and saw his future revealed in majestic and astounding terms pronounced by God.  Yet, God tested him with the sacrifice of  his only son.  Similarly, God only wants the best for us and from us, and for Abraham, Issac represented the promise to be kept by God.  However, I didn’t see any hesitation with Abraham.  I didn’t notice any personal appeal by him to God.  He simply did as God ordered and kept at it until God proved Himself as a strong deliverer.  Amen!  We truly come out refined when we’ve been tested by the best.
