If you’re like me, Monday mornings can be difficult to navigate, especially if you have a lot going on. Today, I have been making flight reservations to see my sister out west. Doing that can be mind numbing trying to figure out times, seat assignments, etc. But what does all that have to do with the power of prayer? Nothing directly but indirectly it does.
Yesterday in my Sunday School class I was scheduled to teach the lesson. However, my back went out on me causing me pain just to stand. So, I sat down to teach the lesson. When class was over one of our class members invited all other class members to come up and lay their hands on me as he did. He prayed a very powerful prayer for my healing.
I am happy to report that as of this morning I’ve not experienced any pain in my back and I am walking pain free. That’s a good thing because I certainly didn’t want to travel in pain. I think sometimes that I’ve not experienced the full benefit of prayer because I’ve had a small seed of doubt. I am not sure why but yesterday I just believed I was going to be healed and as of this writing I am still pain free.
The next time you enter into prayer with our heavenly Father, just know two things—He hears your prayers and answers your prayers. Don’t be the unstable man who is tossed about by the wind and waves with a small seed of doubt but instead have concrete faith and trust in our Lord. When you do, you will receive answers to your prayers.
