Everything in our walk with God centers on prayer. The problem is, very few Christians have a rich prayer life. Research tells us that the average Christian spends 3-7 minutes a day in prayer (including meals).
This verse gives us great hope. We often think that the characters of the Bible were special people, with special gifting, for a special time. Yet this verse says that Elijah, one of the greatest characters of the Old Testament was a man just like us.
What might happen if we really believed in the power of prayer? If we truly believed that our prayers would make a difference, we would pray more. However, our weak faith has resulted in weak prayers. We pray small prayers to a little God, because we have such weak faith.
As you pray for your husband, pray that God births in him a deeper passion for prayer. Let him see that God answers the prayers of regular people. Pray that he will take the time to pour out his heart to God, look to Him for guidance, and stand in faith for what he has asked.
Father, thank you for eddie. I pray that you will develop in him a greater passion and hunger for prayer. I pray that he will see that you are the God who hears and answers our prayers. I pray You will help him set aside time for prayer, and then give him the faith to look to You for the answers.
In Jesus Name,
eddie, I am praying God takes your prayer life to an entirely new level. I am praying that you become a man of prayer. I was reminded today that the great men of the Bible were regular men who prayed, and God did powerful things through them. I am praying that God gives you a new passion and hunger for prayer. Love, denise
