Have you checked your prayer meter lately? How does your prayer life look? Prayer is known to transform lives.
Through prayer, we can overcome the temptations to sin. We can pray and ask for God's help to keep us from making bad choices. Prayer gives us the strength to do what is right. Check out this quote by John Chrysostom on what prayer has accomplished in the past.
"Prayer has subdued the strength of fire. It has bridled the rage of lions, hushed anarchy to rest, extinguished wars, appeased the elements, burst the chains of death, expanded the fates of heaven, assuaged diseases, dispelled frauds, rescued cities from destruction, staid the sun in its course, and arrested the progress of the thunderbolt. In this communion with God, there is an all-sufficient panoply, a treasure undiminished, a mine that is never exhausted, a sky unobscured by clouds, a heaven unruffled by the storm. It is the root, the fountain, the mother of a thousand blessings." Here are 5 Reasons Why We Should PRAY 1. God is our SOURCE Colossians 3:4 - "When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory." 2. We love God. Matthew 22:37 - Jesus replied, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’" 3. Prayer helps us resist SIN Matthew 26:41 - “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” 4. We need God 's INTERVENTION 2 Corinthians 4:4 - "The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God." 5. Prayer is a COMMANDMENT Colossians 4:2 - "Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful." Luke 18:1 - "Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up."
