"STANDING ON THE PROMISES"
And because of his glory and excellence, he has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires. ~ 2 Peter 1:4
God Invites Us To Pray
Linked With God Through Prayer—It is a wonderful thing that we can pray effectually; that unworthy, erring mortals possess the power of offering their requests to God. What higher power can man desire than this,—to be linked with the infinite God? Feeble, sinful man has the privilege of speaking to his Maker. We may utter words that reach the throne of the Monarch of the universe. We may speak with Jesus as we walk by the way, and He says, I am at thy right hand.
We may commune with God in our hearts; we may walk in companionship with Christ. When engaged in our daily labor, we may breathe out our heart's desire, inaudible to any human ear; but that word cannot die away into silence, nor can it be lost. Nothing can drown the soul's desire. It rises above the din of the street, above the noise of machinery. It is God to whom we are speaking, and our prayer is heard.
God, please enlighten my mind with truth; Inflame my heart with love; Inspire my will with courage; Enrich my life with service. Pardon what I have been; Sanctify what I am; And order what I shall be. Amen.
Lord, give me strength in my weakness. Give me faith in my fear. Give me power in my powerlessness. I’m trusting You. Amen.
"You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in You."Isaiah 26:3
