Encouragement for the Moment

 

Come and sit and ask Him whatever is on your heart. No question is too small, no riddle to simple.  He has all the time in the world.  Come and seek the Will of God.

Max Lucado

 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

Matthew 7:7

Encouragement for the Moment

There is nothing to be valued more highly than to have people praying for us; God links up His power in answer to their prayers.

 O. Chambers

 

And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.

Isaiah 65:24

 

Encouragement for the Moment

If we pray for anything according to the will of God, we already have what we pray for the moment we ask it.  We do not know exactly when it will arrive; but we have learned to know God through the Spirit of God, and have learned to leave this in His hands, and to live just as happily whether the answer arrives immediately or later.

O. Hallesby

 

 Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.  And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.

1 John 5: 14-15

 

Encouragement for the Moment

To pray is to let Jesus into our lives. He knocks and seeks admittance, not only in the solemn hours of secret payer, He knocks in the midst of your daily work, your daily struggles,  your daily “grind”.  This is when you need Him the most.

 

O. Hallesby

 

Rejoice always,  pray continually,  give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

 

 

 

Encouragement for the Moment

Your prayers move God to change the world.  You may not understand the mystery of prayer. You don’t need to.  But this much is clear: Action in heaven begins when someone prays on the earth.  What an amazing thought!

 Max Lucado

 

 And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.

Matthew 21:22

Encouragement for the Moment

The possibilities of prayer are found in its allying itself with the purposes of God, for God’s purposes and man’s praying are the combination of all potent and omnipotent forces.

 E.M. Bounds

  

 And He who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God’s will.   And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.

Romans 8:27-28
