Short but sweet, and pleasing to Our Father’s ears.
Words of grace, power packed utterances.
Sometimes it takes less than we think to reach Our Father’s heart; no need for lengthy prayers or heroic deeds, just simple heart cries that speak to our gracious, loving Heavenly Father’s waiting ears.
The fervent prayers of a righteous man are powerful and effective. We must abide in Christ – walking in faith and love, pray in faith, and pray with passion. God is passionate about kingdom matters, and so must we be if we are to walk side by side with him. As we pray, we patiently wait and watch for the unfolding of his answers.
Faith, hope, and love; mercy, grace, and peace; wisdom, knowledge, and understanding, love, joy, and peace – Our Father’s gifts to us are graciously dispensed to hungry hearts.
Humility and the fear of the Lord – the keys to the kingdom which he has lavishly bestowed on us, an everlasting kingdom, a never ending relationship with the Great I Am and the family of the redeemed – free for the asking.
Let us not forget to pray for a harvest of souls – the heartbeat of The Father. Our eternity is already guaranteed, but the souls of many hang in the balance waiting for someone to bring Good News. And let us not neglect the poor – another key to the Father’s heart. We who have both the Gospel and material means are doubly obligated to share with those in need.
So we pray fervently, wait expectantly, then act decisively. We pray for Our Savior’s heart, we wait for his loving reply, and we move and speak at his command. His will, his way, in his time, for his glory, and the blessing of the elect.
