"The Prayers of the Faithful"

“The Prayers of the Faithful”


Therefore let everyone who is faithful pray to You at a time that You may be found.  When great floodwaters come they will not reach him.          Psalm 32:6


We now are facing a new year that will bring about new uncertainties, some of which may be of a personal nature.  In this Psalm, David implores the FAITHFUL to pray to God, while He may be found.  As the saying goes:  “There is NO better time than NOW.”  We as God’s Children, those who have been redeemed by the blood of the Lamb, need to offer prayers to our Heavenly Father, for strength and a MIGHTY FAITH that will carry us through ANY situation.


It doesn’t mean that we will be immune from every heartache, or trouble that comes our way, but it does mean that, when we PRAY, we can be assured that He hears the prayers of His Children, and will do what is BEST for us, even when we can see NO WAY, He makes a WAY, and will see us through to the very end.  We don’t always understand God’s ways or we may not agree with His plans, but it is our responsibility to be OBEDIENT to Him and to TRUST His will.


We will not be overwhelmed with the situations we encounter, because we know He is in control, even when we think that He has abandoned us, through a STRONG, ABIDING, FAITH, we can be OVERCOMERS, and TRUST His hand. 


Even in times of great adversity, when the situation is hard and seems unfair to a Child of God, we MUST TRUST Him, for He has the capability of seeing the WHOLE picture.   He KNOWS what the future holds and what would be the BEST thing for His child.   Some may and have questioned “why” a loving, righteous God would let a horrible scenario be carried out against His Children.   We don’t know the mind of God, but we MUST TRUST HIM. 


We live in a wicked, evil world, where sin runs rampant and innocent people, even God’s Children are victims to its aftermath.  Our prayers to our Heavenly Father exemplifies our FAITH in Him and He promises us that He will NEVER LEAVE us nor FORSAKE us. He will see us through to the very end.  For the Child of God, they are assured of a home in Heaven, where there is NO sin, evilness or wickedness to affect their well-being, only PEACE, JOY, and HAPPINESS, the likes of which mankind has NEVER experienced. 


But for the person who has never given their HEART and LIFE to God, they not only face the effects of this sin-ridden, evil, wicked world, but they also face an eternity that is filled with HEARTACHE, TORMENT, TORTURE, MISERY, and DESPAIR, with NO way of escape.  You have the opportunity NOW to come to God, CONFESSING your sins to Him and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU and is ALIVE, in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and have the assurance that He will get you through to the end.  Put your FAITH and TRUST in Him.  Do it NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
