Are you having trouble of any kind? We can bring it to God who loves you more than anyone else and get help.
Maybe you’re sick?
I know this might sound crazy, but the Bible says God will heal you. And if you’ve done something wrong (and who hasn’t?), God will forgive you.
You know what? I’ve seen it happen and it’s really cool. It’s what the Bible promises. Have a look:
“Admit your faults to one another and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous man has great power and WONDERFUL results!
“Elijah was as completely human as we are, and yet when he prayed earnestly that no rain would fall, none fell for the next three and a half years! Then he prayed again, this time that it would rain, and down it poured, and the grass turned green and the gardens began to grow again” (James 5:16-18, NIV).
Before I started hanging out with God, I had no idea how good it felt to have someone pray for me. And back then, you never would have been able to convince me of the power of prayer, but I’ve seen it.
I’ve watched blind people get their sight back!
And check this out: Jesus told His friends, “Here is eternal truth . . . you will go directly to the Father and ask him for anything you desire and he will give it to you, because of your relationship with me” (John 16:23, TPT).
Well, we can’t apply those one-liners any way we want. We need to take them in context. The chapter before it just said: “When you pray for things, you don’t get them because you want them for the wrong reason-for your own pleasure” (James 4:3, GOD’S WORD® Translation).
But we’re aiming to pray for right reasons.
You know, by just being honest with God. He knows our hearts. Let’s give Him what we’re going through and our desires and see what happens.
And if it’s something cool, you better write and tell me! 😁 Answered prayer is one of my favorite things. I have tons of cool God stories about that, here’s one of the strangest . . .
One afternoon in Africa, an American volunteer didn’t look like she was feeling very well, so my friend asked if we could pray for her. She said, “Okay.”
Later, she came looking for us, “You’ll never guess what happened.”
We didn’t know it when we prayed for her, but she’d had this habit of cleaning her ears too much. Her doctor told her to quit doing that. He said she needed some ear wax. But it was like an addiction or something and she couldn’t stop.
After we prayed, she had ear wax! 😆
Weird, huh? But God cares about things like that. Seriously, He’s the one who made ear wax because He knew we’d need it. So, whether you are a long-time prayer warrior or someone who’s never had anyone pray for you, what have you got to lose?
Maybe you could use:
Or maybe, there isn’t a prayer here yet that will cover what you need. If that’s the case, tell me what it is and I’ll get on it! 😊
