My voice shalt thou hear in the morning O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up. -Psalm 5:3
We know that prayer changes things, don't we? But perhaps the thing that changes most, without our even realizing it, is us.
In times of trouble, we pray. Whenever there is sorrow, we pray. We pray when we are afraid.
We cry out in faith to our Maker and anxiously await His answer.
And through prayer we learn of God's faithfulness. Then prayer becomes a sought-after communing with our Father in heaven and we pray joyfully and at all times.
I thank God for godly moms and dads, in my family and in my church, and everywhere that there are godly moms and dads.
All their lives they will pray for their children and will teach their children to pray and to love Jesus.
I thank God for my own mother and father who lifted up who knows (except God alone) how many prayers for my well being, but mostly for my salvation.
I think of the prayers that have lifted up my youngest great-grandson and his mom and dad and I am thankful for the gift of prayer and those Christian people who employ it to intercede for family and friends and even perhaps for strangers of whose need we are aware.
So thanks to you all and thanks to God the Spirit for moving you to pray on behalf of Braxton Wayne Anderson.
May we ever pray without ceasing.
