Concerts of Prayer | by Pastor Newton Fairweather
Dear Family and Friends,
What do you like to do the most with your free time?
Some people like to play video games, some people like to read, some people like to live on social media, some of us like to go to the movie. Kids will play hours and hours of Y2K.
What you do with your free time will tell a lot about where your focus and interest is. Often what seem like meaningless moments has great influences on our actions and the decisions.
What category do you put prayer in?
Do you see prayer as a necessity?
Some of us might be quick to say yes, but where is the evidence. The evidence is often shown in how much time you spend in prayer. Prayer is one of the pillars of the Bible. You see this tool being used over and over when there are challenges and obstacles that cannot be overcome by human strength.
In the season we find ourselves there should be a “concert of prayers” in our hearts and minds. We have more questions than answers and we are left asking the question “What’s going on?”.
Prayer can be a very successful options, not just for some but for all of us. “Prayer changes things” and if we ever need things to change it is now:
Solomon the wisest man in the world prayed.
Daniel prayed 3 times per day.
David a man after God’s own heart prayed.
Hannah prayed for a son.
Paul and Silas prayed while in Prison.
The church prayed for Peter while he was in prison.
The disciples noticed that Jesus was always praying and broke down to ask him to “teach them how to pray”. Jesus in the most difficult time of his life prayed in the garden of Gethsemane.
The scripture tell us the results of constant prayer:
Isaiah 44:3 - “For I will pour water on the thirsty land, and streams on the dry ground; I will pour out my Spirit on your offspring, and my blessing on your descendants.”
2 Chronicles 7:14 - “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."
Blessings and Favor
