3 Movements of Prayer ~ C#
Satan would whisper that prayer is hollow, God is disinterested and it wastes time for it is not productive.
But NO - prayer does help, very much.
The necessity of pure, life-filled, holy-spirit inspired prayer I am continually challenged by. That gracious survivor of a World War Two Nazi prison camp Corrie ten Boom taught:
When a Christian stops praying the devil starts shouting.
Years later Leonard Ravenhill echoed Corrie ten Boom:
Nothing does satan or hell fear more than praying men.
J.O. Fraser - Burma's pioneer Christian missionary elevated the eternal value of prayer:
Just as a plant may die for lack of watering, so may a genuine work of God die and rot for lack of prayer.
Prayer is sowing seeds in heaven for the bearing of fruit on earth.
Prayer seeks a divine harvest that bequeaths an invisible, multiplying legacy through the generations until the Lord returns.
There is no better place to be than on your knees.
Prayer is not merely a chasing after the wind, it is a sowing to fruit that will last (John 15:16). Prayer builds a work to survive (1 Corinthians 3:14).
From an obscure reference to prayer in Revelation an angel of the Lord guarantees the passage of our prayers to the Throne of Grace. Prayers get through. (Revelation 8:1-5)
In a recent chat about prayer with a very good friend we both agreed that - prayer action is seeking heaven's traction.
