I don’t know about you, but I’ve been doing a lot more praying lately.
In one day alone, I got urgent messages from four different friends asking for prayer.
Each request stopped me in my tracks and sent me to my knees.
I could’ve filled an entire prayer journal on Paris alone.
Now add to that the rest of Europe, America, and, well, the world.
So many thoughts on prayer have been pressing to get out of my mind and into my blog.
Unfortunately, other writing commitments have delayed me.
With the vital needs that now loom ever before our world, I turned to others who have written great posts on prayer.
I’m sharing five posts on prayer today that you don’t want to miss.
Three are written by friends of mine. One is written by someone I’d like to count as a friend. The last is actually by me.
I wrote “Does Prayer Change God’s Mind” awhile ago. It’s an important message I need to remember in these times. I thought it could help you, too.
My hope is that these articles will encourage us to make a renewed commitment to prayer.
The world is giving us plenty to pray about every day.
And God answers prayer.
