Matthew 21:21-22 – Jesus replied, "I tell you the truth, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and it will be done. If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer."
James 4:2 – You do not have, because you do not ask God.
It's true prayer changes things and if we don't pray very little if anything will happen.
In addition, if we don't pray we will begin to self-destruct physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.
Pray, pray, pray, pray, pray, pray, pray, pray, pray, pray, pray, and pray some more!
A Korean student shared about how his home church started out as a very small church, until now it is very large. When asked about what his pastor did to help bring this about he responded by saying his pastor "prays 'lot." He went on to say that his pastor fasted and prayed beginning on Thursday through the services on Sunday. We also know that in Korea they have a prayer meeting every morning at five and on Fridays they pray all night, even though most have to work on Saturday.
Prayer: Lord, give us such an insatiable desire for spiritual growth that we would be willing to make real sacrifices in the time we spend in prayer and fellowship with You. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen.
