Many of us who join here in blogland to study each day have had examples of answered prayer in our lives.
The Bible tells us that the prayer of one righteous person is powerful and effective.
It also tells us that something extraordinary happens when two or more agree together in prayer.
In Matthew 18:19, Jesus said, "If any two of you agree touching any matter on this earth, it shall be done."
Let's first ask forgiveness of our sins . . .
If I had cherished sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened.
-- and then cast all doubt from our minds . . .
But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who
doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.
-- and then faithfully wait upon Him . . .
For you have need of patience, that, after you have done the will of
God, you might receive the promise. (Hebrews 10:36)
Several of our long-time companions in study have voiced prayer requests lately. Marla has asked for prayer for her husband's health, and for blessings in finding the right doctor for him. Cathy has told us of her son's job search, and asked us to join her in prayer that he'll find just the right job. Belinda has been dealing with some very stressful situations, and we need to bear her up in prayer, and ask for the blessings of strength and compassion on her.
Please leave a comment here with a request for prayer warriors to join you in agreeing together on a matter.
Also, leave us a comment if you have an answered prayer to report - that's so encouraging to us all!
