The prayer meeting this morning was amazing. Loved that there were more of us there, plus many others praying in their own homes too. When the saints come together in faith, incredible things can happen.
Again, we prayed on behalf of those who may not have the strength, physically or emotionally, to pray for themselves. We stood in the gap, calling on God for miracles.
Then behold, men brought on a bed a man who was paralysed, whom they sought to bring in and lay before Him. And when they could not find how they might bring him in, because of the crowd, they went up on the housetop and let him down with his bed through the tiling into the midst before Jesus. WHEN HE SAW THEIR FAITH, He said to him, “Man, your sins are forgiven you.” And the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, “Who is this who speaks blasphemies? Who can forgive sins but God alone?” But when Jesus perceived their thoughts, He answered and said to them, “Why are you reasoning in your hearts? Which is easier, to say, ‘ our sins are forgiven you,’ or to say, ‘Rise up and walk’? But that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins”—He said to the man who was paralyzed, “I say to you, arise, take up your bed, and go to your house.” [Luke 5:18-24]
HE SAW THEIR FAITH.
HE SEES OUR FAITH.
That should act as a great encouragement to us. With so many people suffering in different ways, we are doing all that we can to bring each person to Jesus. He sees our efforts in believing that God can do what others say is impossible. He sees our determination to take hold of the Word and speak it over people’s lives. He sees our faith in Him for change, for miracles, for bodies to be made hold. He sees our hope in God when those who are ill may be losing theirs. We just need to keep praying, to keep believing and to not give up.
Why not join us 7-8AM every Thursday as we pray. It may not be possible for you to join us physically but wherever you are take a moment to remember those from the ‘household of faith’ who need a miracle. Let’s stand in agreement for change – for friends, family, colleagues, fellow Christians around the world.
