3 Movements of Prayer ~ C#

The Movement of the Heavens

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.
