One thing that has broken my heart many times is while serving on my church’s prayer team, when it came time for prayer our alter would be empty except for our prayer team. This actually did not start as my own heart break but God’s. While standing at the alter waiting to pray with anyone who wanted to pray with another. We stood there through a couple of songs, and no one came. This grief came over me, and I heard Him say, ‘They don’t realize that you all need prayer, and that I Am waiting for you all to come to me. My alter is empty and yet there are so many in need. They let pride and fear keep them from coming to my throne, afraid to look needy, or weak. Thinking they are fine without My help. Forgetting about there loved ones, neighbors, coworkers, friends, and even their enemies. They are missing out on so much. There is nor request, no need, or anything that is to big or small for Me. Bring me all of your cares and burdens, and i will take care of you.’ I stood there looking out at the congregations and wondered how they could not hear what I was hearing. We closed the service in prayer, and the feeling of the need for prayer never left me. So as I continue writing and sharing other bloggers posts on prayer I hope prayer becomes more contagious than the virus epidemic the world is currently dealing with. So let us pray together for each other until this earth is covered in prayer and every need has been brought to His throne.
Hebrew 4:15-16…(15)For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who was tempted in every way that we are, yet was without sin. (16)Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
God bless, prosper and protect you and your loved ones, in Jesus Name!
P.S. If your church has a time for prayer/alter call, please don’t let anything keep you from making it to that alter and lift up your needs and the needs of the others in your life. He is waiting to see you there.
