05 Apr On Wings of Prayer
“Let me tell you why you are here. You’re here to be salt-seasoning that brings out the God-flavors of this earth. If you lost your saltiness, how will people taste godliness? You’ve lost your usefulness and will end up in the garbage” ~Matthew 5:13-15 MSG
Science’s “Butterfly Principle” says, in essence, a butterfly flapping its wings on the African Continent eventually affects weather on California’s coast—thousands of miles away. Similarly, prayers of the righteous are never stuck; our “wings” not only affect earth’s realm but also the heavenlies—two dimensions! As “salt of the earth” and “light of the world,” our prayers are relevant to earthly matters, for it takes heaven to bring all into order. Bishop Long has declared, “God says, ‘There are certain situations I have made judgment on, that I will hear your plea.’” That is kingdom influence! Our prayers influence the lives of those near and far—and generations yet to come. Take time to intercede for individuals…families…also for nations. Flap your “prayer wings” and expect favor with God and man! From our prayer closet, we affect the world for the kingdom!
PRAYER: Father, Thank You for the powerful gift of prayer. We take to “wings of prayer” according to Your will, and mountains move! Amen.
