Whelp, here we are. Another night stuck at home.
I’m not sure about you, but I find it quite interesting how Ms. Rona (COVID-19) has affected us all. We began this year, hugging our family members, and high-fiving our friends. Now, we’re standing six feet away from them with Lysol and disinfecting wipes in hand.
What fascinates me is the fact it took this massive virus to attack Earth in order for us to sit still and find out what we need the most. This brings me to what I would like to share with you all this evening:
The Power of Prayer aka. P.O.P
Two weeks ago, aimlessly strolling through YouTube, I ran across a video from T.V. host, Sid Roth entitled, How TO STOP the Coronavirus in its Tracks. Eager to find out the magic key, I clicked on the video. To my surprise, Sid did not share a vaccination nor a medical pill, but he advised us all to partake in prayer.
Now, for my video lovers, I will not share how Sid found out prayer was the essential key to cure the disease. However, I will say three days after the video aired, the president of the United States, announced a National Day of Prayer.
After watching the video and reading the post, the power of prayer (p.o.p) came to mind. I whispered a short prayer to God asking Him to help me remove any veils from my eyes, read His Word clearly, and receive the message behind the text.
Following prayer, I opened up my Bible and went to Luke 18 and read verses 1 through 8.
One day Jesus told his disciples a story to show that they should always pray and never give up. “There was a judge in a certain city,” he said, “who neither feared God nor cared about people. A widow of that city came to him repeatedly, saying, ‘Give me justice in this dispute with my enemy.’ The judge ignored her for a while, but finally he said to himself, ‘I don’t fear God or care about people, but this woman is driving me crazy. I’m going to see that she gets justice, because she is wearing me out with her constant requests!’”
Then the Lord said, “Learn a lesson from this unjust judge. Even he rendered a just decision in the end. So don’t you think God will surely give justice to his chosen people who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? I tell you, he will grant justice to them quickly! But when the Son of Man returns, how many will he find on the earth who have faith?”
After reading the parable, I wondered where else I would find the phrase “always pray and never give up” in the Bible. The scripture references highlighted scriptures: Luke 11:5, 21:36, Romans 12:12, Ephesians 6:18, Colossians 4:2, and 1 Thessalonians 5:17.
Reading each scripture, the Lord then revealed to me He would provide me with my heart’s desire. Only if I am persistent in prayer.
Similar to the woman who nagged the judge until she received her request, God told me to continue to nag and bother Him until my prayers were answered. It was then brought to my attention God hears ALL of our prayers, whether they are short or long, spoken at night or during the day.
Believe it or not, as soon as He hears the word, He begins to work on our prayers. God is aware of what’s going on in our minds. He knows of our prayers before they come out of our mouths.
Can I share a secret?
Our prayers have been answered! The only reason we have not received our responses yet is because He is challenging our FAITH. Never feel like you’re getting on God’s nerves when you pray. In fact, I urge you to continue to nag God. Put Him in remembrance of what He promised YOU! Read His Word back to Him in your prayers and put Him in check! I’m telling you, people, the P.O.P method WORKS!
