Prayer Changes Things
Hello, My Friend,
Are you worried about something---or someone? Are you confused? Are you looking for answers?
Well, I know Someone Who holds All the Answers. That Someone is Jesus. The Best Way to reach Him is through Prayer—because Prayer Changes Things. Things happen when we pray, that doesn’t happen when we don’t.
Jesus says, that “the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.” (James 5:16) Our prayers accomplish much. Our prayers are powerful. The Good News is that we are the righteousness of God IN Christ Jesus. (2 Corinthians 5:21)
Jesus has given us some Great and Precious Promises in His Word. He says in Matthew 18:20, that “Wherever two or three come together in My Name, I am right there with them.” You and I make two. That means we qualify.
He also promises: “You can ask for anything in My name, and I will do it so that the Son can bring glory to the Father.” (John 14:13)
Why? You may ask, “Why would Jesus want to do anything for me?” I have asked myself the same question. The answer is always the same. Jesus Loves Me. Perhaps you sang that song when you were little. I sing it yet today. Jesus Loves Me. The Bible says that God Is Love—not that He has love—or that He gives love. He doesn’t wear love—like a jacket. GOD IS LOVE. GOD EQUALS LOVE. God is the very essence of Love. That love took form in the life of Jesus Christ. God So Loved You and me, that He gave His only Son so that you and I might Live. (John 3:16) Jesus literally laid down His life for you and for me. And then He rose again on the third day. Hallelujah. He Is Risen Indeed.
So, my new friend, let me take you by the hand and let’s go to Jesus together for the Answers we need. He is always ready and waiting.
