Here is a great excerpt from Pastor Will Davis’ book Pray Big.
“Prayer brings God’s blessing and God’s provision. A praying person lives with the kind of of spiritual momentum and favor that only consistent prayer can bring.”
Do you know someone who exudes the power of God? Someone whom you can tell, spends time in His presence? God invites all of us to be people who have clearly been with Jesus (Acts 4:13).
Why do some seem never to hit their stride spiritually while others seem to run with purpose in every step?
The answer: time with Jesus.
As we camp in the presence of the Living God and we identify ourselves with Him, our hearts begin to beat in rhythm with His. We begin to love what He loves, want what He wants, and live in the way He appointed us to live.
All of life is to be one of living-breathing-dialogue with a present and engaged Savior. As we pray without ceasing, we find Him faithful and never-failing. As we dare to ask Him to move in ways that are above and beyond our level of comfort, we find Him answering in ways that exceed our prayers.
Anyone who has ever taken prayer seriously knows it to be the highest and most effective work a man can put his hand and heart to. You’ve heard it said: More Prayer – More Power. True, true, true!
Are you grieved that your church seems to operate without power? Pray! Do you long for your city to be blessed of God? Pray? Does your heart ache for your wandering children? Get on your knees and pray!
As mind-boggling as it is, God moves when we pray.
To borrow a phrase from Will Davis, what big hairy audacious prayer are you praying these days? I’d love to know!
