Greetings Prayer Warriors,
Do you ever feel sorry for yourself? Perhaps you are unhappy with what’s not going right at work or at home? Tried the pity party but it felt nothing like a party? We all have experienced this, but sometimes we have to stop looking inward and look beyond ourselves. I look for inspiration in the lives of the saints, mainly because most started a great sinners!
In today’s scripture, I reflected on Peter being imprisoned by Herod, doubly shackled, thrown in a cell with guards both outside the door and flanking him inside the cell! The thought of escaping would seem pointless and hopeless. However, my eyes kept returning to a line earlier in the passage:
The fervent prayer of a righteous person is very powerful. James 5:16
I have competed well; I have finished the race; I have kept the faith.
2 Timothy 4:7
May the Lord bless each of you abundantly!
Peace, Joy, and Love,
Prayer is the greatest gift we can give to each other and the world. It can bring about peace. Pass it on!
