At times, it’s simple to get caught in the enmity tossed over social media and television. Now is the time to intercede through prayer and take godly action. Catching the wave of discourse is easy, running to God is difficult. It takes holding back when you want to lash out over certain issues, separating us today.
We’ve done countless reports on Blessing Through Action regarding the political climate on taking the nation back to its founding principles — and giving God a voice once again. The Lord said to His disciples, “You are the salt of the earth” (Matthew 5:13) and what keeps the body of Christ.” As most of us are aware of, we’re engaged in a spiritual battle. A tool often overlooked is prayer. People don’t recognize how extraordinary prayer is. Praying is one of the most distinguished privileges we have as Christians.
2 Chronicles 7:14 is a reminder of the power we have as Christians. “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. ”
Recently someone on Our Action Place asked for prayer regarding a family recovering from a horrific accident. One of the people in the car went into a coma. Doctors didn’t give a positive report for the outcome. However, OAP gathered and prayed on their behalf, leading to what is being considered nothing short of a miracle. The same applies to us daily.
Hebrews said: “But without faith it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him. For whoever would come near to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him [out].”
OAP prayed for me after a medical test, I was panicking and assuming the worse. But I felt those prayers and intercessors, so I thank the community for this and the staff at BTA.
Many times, it seems our prayers are not working. There are and will be times we won’t have the answers so desired. Prayer can help us not only personally, but the power of prayer can change a nation and defuse hostile situations, even at the dinner table.
Try praying and reading the Bible. When we are in the thick of it, our consciousness will revert to the Word we examined. Paul tells us in Ephesians 4:26: “Be angry but do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, and do not make room for the devil.”
Too many Christians are dishing out discourtesies like non-believers seen on mainstream websites. Pray before that reply, before the cake and coffee roll around, knowing that Aunt Peggy goes on a political tangent. Pray for those on this App, it makes a difference, trust me.
Prayer will give you peace, tap into its remarkable power.
